The flame guardian Atherion by Dreatos The flame guardian Atherion by Dreatos
Very few ponies know the spell to call forth Atherion. Those who do share in his power and he will protect whoever calls upon his might.

Celestia very seldom finds herself in a situation where she must defend herself from those would do her harm. When those times come, Atherion gives his great strength to her gladly.

------------

I wanted to draw this for awhile. Finally got around to it. It would have been out sooner but then computer failure happened! That is fixed though for the time being.

Cute.exe could not be found! Would you like to search again?

Edit: Since there's some confusion, here's some explanation. Atherion is from nowhere. He is simply the tag-along to the drawing idea. He likely won't appear anywhere else of mine.

All that's missing is a growth spell to make her as big as the dragon! :D

Or a shirking spell to make the dragon as small as her hoof, but then we would miss an epic fight.

Now somewhere in FIM fiction....their is this crossover story of DMC and MLP thing. Somewhere in chapter 3 or w/e it is, Celestia uses a powerful form to be called Royal Fury. So I just wanna say, it would fit well to this picture of her using it xD.

So which is the Atherion? The draconian creature in the foreground, or the gossamer alicorn-shaped figure over Celestia?

I was assuming the later, with the dragon about to get his scales kicked. But I thought I would check. It's a great image no matter what!
