Arsalan Khan's Curse - Characters by ArsalanKhanArtist
Arsalan Khan's Curse - Characters

Synopsis: A fairy-tale story focussing on the enchanted bond between the Miserable Prince (father) and the Isolated Princess (daughter). As the story unfolds the Prince believes the death of his sweet wife was no accident and this has led to the innocent baby girl being in danger because of a mysterious but terrible curse. In an effort to save his daughter, he locked her away from the world whilst he can find the answers to what exactly happened to his wife. Fifteen years has passed since that fateful day and the Princess has grown isolated, due to her being locked away because of the mysterious curse that she remains unaware of. She dreams of reclaiming her own title that she has been denied for so long. The father and daughter have to find a way to repair their relationship and find a way to stop the curse. 

Princess Maariyah/Rukaiyah:
Maariyah represents a fight for civil rights and restoration of her own title and heir. She provided a role model of being educated and who is determined to restore the kingdom for a better future. She also set a virtuous example of a bond between father and daughter, a rare thing in South Asia and Middle East.

Prince Ghaffar: Ghaffar represents a fight for justice and family. He provided a role model of being determined to find a way to undo the blasphemy and protect the family for a better future. He also set a virtuous example of a bond between father and daughter that rare thing in South Asia and Middle East.

Zanubiya the Immortal Jinn: Zanubiya was the famous, nameless evil one from the legend of killing queens and princesses. She has the ability to shapeshift, smokeless fire, witchcraft, and possess humans. Originally, she is from another dimension that parallels our own.

Prince Musa: He was very strong, independent man, rationalist and outspoken but also stubborn and determined. He was a rebellious man that fought against old-fashioned customs and superstitions that Jammu Kashmir and Raj British were stuck with. 

Joseph Josiah: He was very educated, cheery and smart; he was very loyal to his closest friend Prince Ghaffar and also the only one that believed him. Their relationship was bromance. Both of them shared similar pain due to the loss of someone they used to be close to.

Azad the Snow Leopard: His appearance started out as a Snow Leopard cub that almost died alone; he was found by Prince Ghaffar (protagonist) in the woods. His name was given by Princess Maariyah as it means freedom. He was protective and loyal to the Princess. 

Ophelia Adelia: She was a young optimistic woman with a bright future. She experienced the Victorian opposition that makes her a suffragist. She was one of the young people that believed that all people should be treated equally, no matter what colour or rank they belonged to. 

Prince Salahuddin: He was a mischievous, decent and proper chap who was rubbish at romance because he was always busy with his studies and princely responsibilities.

Sultan Qudrat: He was a corrupt tyrant ruler who strongly believes that he is obligated to maintain old traditions, cultures and customs. He saw that it was best to get rid of something that threatens his image, along with his devotion.


Princess of all Saiyans by ArsalanKhanArtist
Princess of all Saiyans
Princess of all Saiyans (Disney Princess version of Dragon Ball Z)

I made it for my youngster sister (huge fan of Dragon Ball like me) who requested an artwork of herself as Princess of all Saiyans in a Disney style. The name of this character would be Princess Sojas (Sojas for ajos, it's means Garlic in Spanish). 


In my imaginative alternative saga (event take place after Future Trunks Saga in DBSuper), Vegeta found out that Vegeta Planet has come into existence since 20 years ago, so he and DBSuper team went there. Vegeta reunited with his parents and met his teenage sister, Princess Sojas who is a heiress. Vegeta lied to his parents about his family being half-saiyans/non-saiyans due to his egoism and pride but also protecting his family from execution. His sister, Princess Sojas secretly in love with Goku's teenage brother, Turles despite class structure difference. Since Vegeta's pride returned, he turned to Saiyan God Blue to show off. He also tried to steal the throne by discredits Sojas, revealed her love to the Royal Family, succeed. Sojas turned to against Vegeta after saw her love, Turles executed by her father. Goku's father Bardock rose against the royal family. The saga becomes Goku VS Vegeta VS Sojas like Game of Thrones. And so on. While Piccolo tried to find out whoever wished Dragon Ball Super for Vegeta Planet....

Anther sub-plot, Chi-Chi pretended to be pureblood saiyan to impress her parent-in-law as overly-prefect daughter-in-law. Lmaooo.

How to Tell if You're a Writer

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 27, 2014, 3:04 PM

-If you talk to yourself.

-If you talk to yourself about talking to yourself (i.e. ‘I wonder why I talk to myself so much?’).

-If, when you talk to yourself, you sometimes speak as if talking to another person (i.e. ‘Okay, so have you ever noticed that the word ‘deliver’ could mean removing someone’s liver?’)

-If, after uttering a profound piece of wisdom like that above, you stare at the cookie in your hand in awe and say, ‘Wow, this is good stuff for sugar highs!’

-If you live off of sugar and caffeine.

-If people start to notice that you tend to check your e-mail every day for a week, then suddenly disappear off the face of the planet.

-If your e-mails tend to be pages long and incredibly random.

-If, when replying to someone else’s e-mail, you are sometimes so random that you fail to address the original message altogether.

-If, no matter where you are in your room, you never have to so much as get up to reach a pen/pencil and paper.-If the letters are starting to wear off on the keys of your keyboard.

-If people think you might have A.D.D.

-If you think it’d be cool to have A.D.D.

-If you start constantly talking in third person, past tense.

-If you think about making lists like this, and start giggling for no ‘apparent’ reason.

-If your friends don’t even bother to look funny at you anymore when you start giggling for no apparent reason.

-And finally, the number one way to tell if you’re a good writer: If you worship English 101.

Arsalan Khan
Artist | Digital Art
United Kingdom
Hey there, welcome to my world!

I am Arsalan, Mohahammed Arsalan Khan but people knows me as Azad or Dizney Khan. I am 24 years old and sort of rebellious man who doesn’t like to being told to do to please anyone, though some people seen me as too kind person when I am not. I am studying BA Film at University this moment, I am enjoying it. I love learning history & cultures, watching movies & TV series, reading books, writing stories and lots of things. I never likes sports stuff though I into swimming, gym and baseball though I do it very rarely (or never), I am not very sport person. My artist name is Arsalan Khan Artist (former DizneyKhan) and I am a cartoonist/animator/director/storyteller. I have been interested in animation since I was very young when I was inspired by Walt Disney, one of few original animators who brought stop motion into reality. I dreamt of making animation movies with morals, using the best quality of animating style and creating live-action movies based on reality or historic events. It is a passion of mine and I want to become a professional animator or director.
If anyone have wondering about my background, I was born in Northern England though I am not actually white ethnicity. My parents originally came from Azad Kashmir, Pakistan (former Jammu Kashmir), we speaks Pahari language, known as Pothohari, Mirpuri, Hindko and Punchi, sort of similar to Punjabi Language with some Pashto, Farsi and Dardic words. I am Turkish-Persian descent, perhaps mixed with other blood such as Rajput, Afghani and Greek. I am a Muslim, however I am not perfect one. We all have makes mistakes, we all do repent it, we all learn from it and sometimes repeating same mistakes, which makes us humans. End of the day Allah loves all of us!

P.S. Sorry for my poor grammar. :(

I fail to see what… has to do with anti-feminism. Could you please explain?
ArsalanKhanArtist Featured By Owner May 28, 2016   Digital Artist
The storyline of Prince Ghaffar (Father) is metaphor for fathers who are fighting for the love of their children, and it is in association with Men’s Rights and Father’s Rights. The Princess Maariyah storyline is all about female empowerment, women’s rights and education. Anti-feminism makes her that she cares for human's rights and equal, not supporting girls only. :)
lordmep Featured By Owner May 28, 2016  Hobbyist Writer
Wish that were more clear, but thank you.
ChaosEmpress Featured By Owner Edited Jan 21, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
What do you suggest as references for outfits for your Princess Maariyah? I tried to look up to see what else she would have worn just out of curiosity, but I came up with mostly land and modern people. Do you ever plan on drawing her a prince or is she independent?
ArsalanKhanArtist Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2016   Digital Artist
Her official causal princess look: arsalankhanartist.deviantart.c…
It's mix of Mughal clothes that wore by muslim princesses in Northern areas of South Asia but with disney twist. 

The story, it's complicated, fantasy fairy-tale story that centres on a father-daughter bond. The two protagonists are Prince Ghaffar (father) and Princess Maariyah (daughter), alongside an antagonist, Zanubiya the Immoral Jinn (aka Genie). The novel is called ‘Curse’ and it has been heavily influenced by Abrahamic world and South Asian customs and superstitions, along with Victorian customs. The main scenario is a metaphor for giving birth to a female baby and the associated consequences this brings.

About her prince, yes she have a prince but romance is not main theme, it's father-daughter.

I have more pictures of characters like Princess's father (also 
protagonist), her older brother, her prince etc. I will upload them once I finish whole secondary characters. 
ChaosEmpress Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I see.

Well I like that! I'm glad it's not a romance story and instead a father-daughter relationship. This story sounds soooo interesting! I hope you'll have a story out for people to read! I know the curses to having a daughter. They can make a five minute walk seem like a ten hour walk, because they won't stop talking. XD Joking aside this already has me at the edge of my seat with curiosity and you only have given me a brief description of the story.

Can't wait to see them!
