Named the nameless by Grypwolf Named the nameless by Grypwolf
Yes. I had a dream of him again.
T______T
It has always been after I have been sick or just plain tired that I see him and last night I did. There wasn't really anything interesting happening in that dream expect that this guy somehow... bleeded over me as I was sitting in the place I can't really sit, watching landscape I could not see as I didin't have eyes to do so.
It was no blood at all, I have no idea what it was as I did not actually see it. I just knew that he was there standing over me, as always, but this time he was giving of this... strange fluid. I need to draw something about it. I want to give you even a little hunch of what I felt while having that dream.

Some of you have been asking me has he tolt me his name.

I think that now he has. I'm not sure thought. Maybe its not even real word not to mention about name.
But as I woke up my head was filled with word Mata... or Meta. My mind is making fun with me as I am not sure which of it it is OR if it even is his name. Yet sometimes there is Mattara and something that sounds similiar to that, like Metaron or something. Don't know. I have desided to call him Mata. This guy is creeping me out really. because even if he doesn't want anything bad, I feel uneasy. Its like seeing some part of yourself that you try to forget or don't want to acknowledge.

I will put this in sketches as soon as I finish with that lineart one.
Drawing makes it easier to accept him i think...

EDIT:
some interestin Comments I have had here:

~LegendOfSupernatural
"Metatron is the name of an angel, if that helps. Maybe you've got a guardian watching over you."

~crmsndragonwngs
"Interestingly enough, Mattara is a real name (it is thought to be the origin of the name Metatron, an angel in Judaism). It means "keeper of the watch." According to Wikipedia, it comes from the Hebrew verb "mmtr," meaning to guard or protect. So, perhaps your guy here is a guardian, of sorts.

Here's the wikipedia article on Metatron: [link] I'm linking you to the etymology section because it is by far the most interesting in context with your dream. "
I did a little more looking (you've got me curious lol), and Metatron seems to be depicted with shocks of orange threading through his wings.[link]


"He is called both Metatron and Mattatron, and the name is believed to either come from Mattara or the Hebrew "mmtr," both loosely meaning guardian. Metatron is also greek for "beyond matrix," possibly a referrence to his high ranking or Metatron's Cube (a geometric figure said to be necessary to understanding the tree of life in Eden). He is often called a celestial scribe, keeper of the Book of Life, and the "Prince of Countenance" (as he is one of the few angels allowed to look at God's face). There seems to be a huge debate around him though, over where exactly his name comes from and where exactly HE actually comes from (he is believed to be a heavenly incarnation of Enoch in some tellings, and in others he came into being when God created earth). Here's an interesting read (and where I got this info): [link]
That article focuses on the idea that Metatron is Enoch ascended, and gives a pretty glorious description of him at the end of the page:
"Additional wisdom and spiritual qualities caused Enoch's height and breadth to become equal to the height and breadth of the earth. God attached thirty-six wings to his body, and gave him three hundred and sixty-five eyes, each as bright as the sun. His body turned into celestial fire -- flesh, veins, bones, hair, all metamorphosed to glorious flame. Sparks emanated from him, and storms, whirlwind, and thunder encircled his form. The angels dressed him in magnificent garments, including a crown, and arranged his throne. A heavenly herald proclaimed that from then on his name would no longer be Enoch, but Metatron, and that all angels must obey him, as second only to God."
He doesn't appear in the Old or New Testaments of the Bible, though he does seem to be a fairly large figure in Judaism, some branches of Christianity and Islam. He does, however, appear in the Talmud (a Jewish religious text) and the Book of Enoch (I've never read either, so I can't give any more on that)
On a more light-hearted note, he appears in an episode of Supernatural (I don't know which), and he is mentioned in Silent Hill (the video game).
I hope this helps! I feel like my sources aren't very reliable, but there doesn't seem to be a whole lot about him around (unless you read the Hebrew texts, I suppose)."

I don't want to upset you but the name 'mada' means 'the end of the road'
I've seen the other comments which translate or say that the other names mean 'guardian' but ask yourself this: Why, and even if he protects you, Why does he do that and what does he protect you from? Others say he's an angel, but don't forget that the devil is infact an 'angel', blinded by hate for the others because they made him fall. i'd ask myself questions before you go on and trust him. I myself also have dreams which there is 1 creature always returning, but he's far from my protector. I havent told anyone of those since... Yeah. They'd think I'm insane.
I agree with the idea that those dreams could be supressed memories from the past since I havent got what you say the best childhood. Anyway, it's About you here, and I honestly hope that I'm wrong.

I think he is your personlal gurdian ...
Maybe he is something in your mind, that you try to forget or try to hide! He could be your spirit, your deep spirit in your memories! I think he exist's now, because you've had trouble and pain when you were younger. I dont know, if you felt bad, had pain, and hided that pain. But it could also be that he represents your silentness when you was younger and someone hurt you...

Everything could be...

He does look vicious the way you draw him sometimes, like with the tongue and the teeth and drool and stuff. You say he appears when your sick and tired? Maybe he's a reminder that you still have to be strong P:

Wtf you also see always a white wolf in dreams and thoughts?! O-O I also always see one the last weeks just with a different look than yours. Can I tell you about that? Maybe it's interesting you. The wolf is white and have big wings with some light blue/turquoise patterns/strips in the face and legs. The left eye of the wolf shines very bright just like blue flames comes out of the eye but the strange thing is in real life I have a problem with my left eye O.O' It always hurts and I only see 10% from 100% at this eye. yeah and the eyes are also light blue/turquoise just as I said the left one really shines bright and the strange thing is sometimes I see how I transform myself into this wolf O.o It all happens in a war, seems like a world war 3 in future. Everytime I see this wolf walking around destroyed things and dead humans and I always have the feeling this wolf is a part of me somehow O-O yeah It's really strange and I always see him in my thoughts when I close my eyes...I dunno it seems like the wolf is my soul or spirit and when it comes out I disappear and I take the shape of this wolf. O-O I dunno the name of the wolf but I hope I'll find it out. I always must think about that wolf and I wanna know more about it O: what do you think does this mean? I'm really confused...

As you did, I will also draw this wolf...It feels like I have to draw this wolf I dunno why Oo
but I really know how you feel it's a very very strang feeling.

And sorry for my bad english ^^;

There are alot of people having dreams about white wolves. Some say it means that someone is lieing to you and the person is untruthful or it means bad luck. Other say it means good luck and heroism, while the third think it represents love or death.

I just think that your brain connects a person with a white color and it just connects the white color with a wolf. Or it just represents your hopes, fears and dreams (since you turn into it).

But brains are pretty f-ed up, so yeah. I hope this helps(?)

Mata... kill.... spanish...

Odd that his longer name comes up with the name of that angel though. The longer names, I also sort of thought of Metatron. But your shortened "mata" is what I saw first...

Either, quite honestly, would make one uneasy I suspect. If I recall, Metatron wasn't exactly an angel to screw around with.

I'm glad you finally have a name for him and that it seems to have turned out to be an angel. My hunch that he was guardian of sorts from the first image seems to have been accurate. It's not often I'm so thoroughly drawn to an image as I was this one. The unsettling feeling you have from him may never go away, but it doesn't exactly mean he's a bad omen or bad guy. Perhaps he really is just that powerful and the way he's revealed himself to you is the most unintimidating form he could manage while still getting your attention. If he's been showing up just before or after you've gotten sick, perhaps, and this is just a wild guess, there might be underlying health problems. (Again, just a wild guess, but thought worth mentioning.) I've had my own beasties follow me around in my dreams, some of them have been rather terrifying at first, and some I'm still intimidated by. I wish I could draw them, but alas, I'm not even a eight as talented as yourself. Here's hoping it all turns out for the best. Cheers! <3

Meta, from Wikipedia (I've heard of it a few times before, here are the most important parts in the summary):
Meta (from the Greek preposition μετά = "after", "beyond", "adjacent", "self", also commonly used in the form μετα- as a prefix in Greek, with variants μετ- before vowels and μεθ- "meth-" before aspirated vowels), is a prefix used in English (and other Greek-owing languages) to indicate a concept which is an abstraction from another concept, used to complete or add to the latter.

In epistemology, the prefix meta- is used to mean about (its own category). For example, metadata are data about data (who has produced them, when, what format the data are in and so on). Also, metamemory in psychology means an individual's knowledge about whether or not they would remember something if they concentrated on recalling it. Furthermore, metaemotion in psychology means an individual's emotion about his/her own basic emotion, or somebody else's basic emotion

You appear to have something very phenomenal occurring in your REM state...

Seeing how you probably knew nothing about him before in angel-form from religious texts, I would say that it's fairly important and to pay close attention... try to keep a dream-journal and immediately write down the encounters after waking. After you have identified a reoccurring event, you may be able to enter a 'lucid dream', and ask him a few questions... If he'll allow it.

I never had a guardian in my dream, but I used to have dreams and daydreams. I wanted to be 'free'; my family life wasn't very good and I was always depressed and needed to get out. I'd dream that I turned into a fast feline of some sort--sometimes a cheetah, sometimes a lion or something. When I was in a car I'd imagine that I was on the sidewalk next to the car and running as fast as we were moving.

This is beautiful work, though... I kind of want to draw him, lol.

It's a very gorgeous creature to dream with... ^^

When I was about 11, I was passing through very emotionally difficult situations regarding family matters and other stuff, and by then, one day, I started to dream with a character of mine. There he would soothe me, give me advice and other things to make me smile again. After a a few months I stopped dreaming with him, but since then he has been my most important character, my guardian... I always hold him close to my heart and think of him whenever I'm down. I've seen the same happening to a few other people, that they would suddenly have a character appear in their dreams during a time of need and help them to pass through it. We call them guardians.

So who knows? Maybe this guy is your guardian. He looks so majestic and elegant, I specially love the touch of bright orange he has on his fur and the contrast of it with the blue eyes, it makes him look very powerful :3.

Apparently it's been scientifically proven that you can't dream of somebody you've never seen, so it's somebody who you've seen sometime in your life :shrug: I wonder who it is XD

I wouldn't care too much, in the end,
dreams are just dreams, always random. Even tho' he appeared in some of your dreams, I don't
believe it is like some "guardian" calling out to you.

I once had this fu..ing creepy lady in my dreams, still have her when having nightmares.
She is always the one who creeps me out in my dreams,
this sounds pretty strange, sure you can, like, remember you've seen a wolf in your dreams,
but a human will forget how it looked like or what it exactly did 5 minutes after waking up, except you woke
up in the middle of the dream.
I wouldn't think about it too much though, the brain does crazy things while sleeping.
Because I was a little kid I always thought I heard her voice after waking up some time later,
but your mind can make up a lot of things ^^
Not here to judge your 'dreams' tho', I couldn't care less about peoples dreams, I've already said, they're always random and crazy.

Love the art of him, he looks amazing, I like the design ^^
