What started as an experiment in the Spring workshop, has turned into a tradition where we get creative from the beginning and really model our own character after their backstory and get the paint sets out.

So, without further ado, let us present you the heroes of tomorrow’s adventure.

The axolotls were totally defenseless of this sabotage until Mariela arose from their kind. Mariela seemed to have different talents than any others, and the surviving axolotls believed that she’s the only hope that could save the suffering remains. Yet, she is not hostile to mankind; even you can be a friend of her too if she thinks that you are on her side. She is willing to befriend anyone on this planet, regardless of their species, as she uses her friendship as the basic means to save her kind from extinction.
And finally, the Mexican government established special regulations to protect the axolotls, and all axolotls believe that it is because of Mariela’s abilities and wisdom, even making allies within mankind too. Or who knows, her special ability might be wisdom itself!
Now she’s a living legend among the axolotls, being a true heroine for them.
Stay tuned for a story to unleash and bring all these heroes and heroines together in an epic adventure of friendship and battle.
