Recompense Shall Be Paid
Battle is an Art is a web serial by Thomas Loud that follows Herah, a human-dragon hybrid that can turn her art into reality and breath fire.

Battle is an Art focuses on a young Cendreux by the name of Herah, who is forced into an event called Recompense that is meant to be a twisted repayment to her Maker Norwe, a God-like entity that seeks to be entertained by watching over Recompense. To spice things up, the losers of Recompense get their universe destroyed while the winner(s) gets a wish from Norwe.
