Webcomic description

Set 3000 years ago on ancient Crete, history and mythology combine in this tale of the world's first magical girl.

Nephele lives a life of uneventful solitude until her world is completely upended by strange monsters from the sea and an even stranger woman giving her magic powers. Nephele takes to the task with her new companions, unaware that she's being caught up in a personal conflict between the gods that's been dragging on for millennia.

Join us as we play in the gap between fact and fantasy!


I’m 900 year old grandma that likes history and anime. I can usually be found procrastinating or dissociating. Saffron Wave is my baby ♡
