The Seer's Eyes

One of the characters in my story, Jasanda Torphion, was cursed with both blindness and prophecy by a petty goddess. She joins up with a crew of not quite pirates and helps out on their adventures. Originally, I imagined her being given new magical mechanical eyes that restore her physical sight, which would then be removed again in about a decade after she was captured by a new enemy.

She is inspired by a couple of Greek mythology characters, namely Cassandra, but I honestly don’t know where her mechanical eyes came from, and I also don’t know if they’re really worth it since there’s kind of a time gap between when she’s with the crew and when she’s captured.

Sorry for the overdrawn explanation, please make your selection below:

  • No new eyes, she navigates with her mystical Sight and other senses.
  • New magical mechanical eyes that are seen for a book, maybe two, before being removed off-page the next time she’s seen.
  • A potion or spell is used to restore her physical sight, and then her eyes are just removed later on.

The sight coming and going reminds me of the show the OA. I liked it there, but maybe already done?
