Dark Horse is inspired by the lovely art and stories of India, as well as a lot of other legends and things (Uh...I pull from a lot of influences).
The title itself is inspired by George Harrison's song and record label (Harrison had converted to Hinduism. I'm not sure if you know The Beatles, they are one of my favorite bands XD).
It's also inspired by Saiyuki, the Journey to the West, but that won't come until the next series. So it's in the US now, but much much later in the series, the setting will move with pit stops in Japan and a few other countries as they travel to India (hopefully, by that time, I will have gotten to travel abroad and my background skills will improve).
I can't wait to introduce her, but Kahnma's father is Indian, and her biological mother is a fae from the Seelie Court (which is Scottish/Celtic).
It's something most people don't' notice, so good on you!!
