Misschievous Innocence by MissKimmyChaotic Misschievous Innocence by MissKimmyChaotic
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:

Not sure if this needs a warning for mature content but I don't think so since everything important is covered. Barely, but still XD
I wasn't planning on drawing another picture of Mila besides the one for her profile since I sort of have a strong love/hate relationship with her. BUT, I've been stuck with drawing her outfit and I really wanted to have a picture of her that consisted of more then just a head so that's when I thought of doing a picture of her in her natural environment. Mila doesn't mind others seeing her like this, nature spirits aren't know to wear much. Since I don't think I'll be making her bio anytime soon, I'll post some background info about her en her monster parent here (yes, long ass description coming up.)

The word ‘Leshy’ is derived from the old Slavonic word meaning “forest”. Their lives are linked to that of the forest they inhabit. If the forest dies, so does the Leshy. Which is why Mila only moved with her mother while her father stayed behind in Russia to look over their forest. The Leshies are closely connected to nature, it's because of this that Mila frequently goes on trips to a nearby forest whenever her energy is low. Her parents told her that the reason as to why she had to start attending school is because they felt that it was time for her to be around other monster more since they pretty much lived isolated from everyone (this is why Mila is still a little socially awkward.) But there is more to it then that, they want Mila to find a manster that is good for their kind. Which would be some other kind of nature creature such as a Faun or so. It just needs to be a monster that is used to living in a forest because they want her and her partner to forever remain there and have lots of children to eventually help protect it. Her parents expect her to have found someone by the time she graduates MH. Her mother hasn't told her about this yet but she will soon enough.

Mila is very friendly but what you need to keep in mind is that Leshies are terribly mischievous beings. They aren't just forest spirits, they are actually Slavic demons. The Leshy can be cruel to those who abuse the forest or the wild creatures, or can be playfully malicious to those who just wander blindly into their territory. They will misguide humans by removing signs from their posts. Leshies also have horrible cries, and can imitate voices of people familiar to wanderers and lure them back to their caves, where the Leshies will tickle them to death (which is why I gave her the dark red/brownish accent on her fingers. Also did it on her ears because I thought it looked nice XP).

This is where Mila differences from her kind. Even though she has engaged in doing those things, mostly because she can't help it since it's in her nature to do so, she doesn't have a horrible cry or can imitate voices like the others can. She actually has a really nice singing voice. She always used to believe that what her kind did wasn't bad but now that she is getting older and is attending school with other monsters, she is starting to doubt that. She isn't really good with talking to others about her problems yet so this is why she likes to sing. It's the only way she feels she can truly express herself. She hasn't sang in front of others before though, since she is scared of what her voice can do (since Leshies trick people with their voice). Little does she know that it only affects humans. Overall, Mila is quite caring and while she may not always understand everything yet, she does try to. She just needs someone who doesn't expect to much from her yet and who she can feel comfortable enough around to just have nice moments with.

Other facts about the Leshy:
-They have no shadow.
-They can shape-shift into any plant or animal. (Mila can't but I won't get into that since I've already written to much lol).
-They have a close bond with gray wolves and are often being accompanied by bears.

The background is just a quick messy edit from this picture [link]
