"Daring" Ashe surveyed the towering structures and stagnant open spaces of the Temple of the Giraffes, licking her lips. On a previous expedition she'd sneaked away a bejewelled treasure, still glistening after centuries, of the ancient civilisation that once thrived here – but of course one trip wasn't enough. The undisturbed parts of her map told her to turn left…
…when all of a sudden a ring of blue and red fire erupted, little tongues slapping onto her like strokes of a cane. A black creature, burning like the trap just sprung, poked its head through and roared at the explorer.
"Wait, who are you…?" she asked with a sheepish grin. The creature gave no audible answer, instead ripping the map from Daring's grasp and sacrificing it to the inferno, then pointing to an inscription on the wall:
"Really?" At this she was met with only a nod. "You want me out of here?" Another nod. After staring at the inscription for what seemed like eternity, all under constant watch, Daring jumped out of the ring, but only landed in a sea of flames and burned to her death.
What was the kind of creature that Daring encountered?
Clearly the creature is fictional, and the British flag is upside-down for a reason. If only Daring had a chalk or pen or similar to draw lines starting from each of the symbols in the middle…
The number of sides of each polygon indicates how far the line must be drawn from it, except the diamonds which don't point in a definite direction. The result is two CJK characters sharing the same left side.
It may also help to know that I am a MLPFIM vector artist, and hence a huge fan of that TV show; the creature is from that show. No translation is needed, only a romanisation.
