the original prompt was "insightful sphinx girl who wears thigh-highs and likes sparkly objects" but then i got it into my head that she was egyptian (despite female sphinxes only being greek) and EGYPTIANS DON'T DO ZETTAI RYOIKI CAUSE IT BE TOO HOT YO
her name is safa massri because i'm stupid. safa means "purity" in arabic and massri (al massri? somebody arabic please help me) just means "egyptian" in arabic HA HA HA HA MAN I AM WITTY SOMEONE SHOOT ME IN THE FACE
being a sphinx (that does greek sphinx things like have a vagina and tell riddles) she talks in circles a lot! usually responds to questions with questions, and even statements with questions. Or just really weird profound stuff. this isn't safa actually being deep, it's a legitimate defense mechanism because she's terrible at talking about herself without sounding like a stuttery nervous fool (which she hates because SHE LIKES BEING ELOQUENT). But she likes talking about you, and your feelings, because she is a bit creepy like that. She very much likes analyzing other people's problems to death.
she also has really thick hair, wow. i kept drawing different wind angles against her head so that i could draw thick black hair blowing in different directions omg
depending on the universe (and time period, naturally-!) she's either ancient eygptian polytheistic or muslim (sunni islam). since in my head she's kind of egyptian-american (?!) she usually only wears a hijab when she's back in the country?? man i am making this up as i go along aren't i
in my head she has two universes (OKAY MORE LIKE THREE. FOUR. FIVE. DAMNIT). one is modern-day, one is i guess the other monster girl universe that all the monster girls are in (?) where she can flip between cute-girl and sphinx-monster, and then an ancient egypt one where she's actually a sphinx statue that can... come to life, i guess?
Then there's one about egypt in world war 2 and the changing role of women and the british rule and BLAH BLAH BLAH BLATHERS HISTORY AT YOU LET ME BORE U WITH ALL MY CHARACTERS BLAH BLAH BLAH
this is safa please treat her kindly yes you can call her saffy too i'd be delighted -SMACKED-
