Re: Looking for someone to brainstorm with!
Just saying be careful when using the mythology of an Indigenous people unless you are a member of said People. Inappropriate use nowadays is not looked upon kindly... and many Indigenous peoples see it as mocking. Unless the being has become a part of the mainstream (in Australia, this would be things like the Bunyip and Rainbow Serpent, but very little else), you do need to be careful. Are you going to make the protag. Cherokee? If not, why not? If so, how will you do so without resorting to stereotypes? Things like that need to be addressed.

Now, having said that - have you decided who/what the antagonist is going to be? This is pretty vital to help people help you.
