Edit: New title. It was so hard to decide because a title can direct or define an  artwork's meaning, and I almost never have a definite story in mind for my paintings, so most of the time they remain a mystery even for me and titles are pretty hard. Who are these characters and what is their relationship? The first title "Dragon and Dew" was a subtle alchemical reference but I thought it was too cryptical and didn't like it very much. I didn't feel as they were much of a couple but that he was as sort of guardian or servant to her. And she passes me a strong "moon" feeling, so, I decided for this title.

Excellent piece.  I wish you would have stuck with your original title myself, but I understand.  The characters don't have to be complimentary sexual mates.  It can be a strong oxymoron, or juxtaposition of characters with care of one over the other, or for one another.  Nice.

Thank you! I don't know exactly why the first title bothered me. I think it started to sound too vague, and I wanted something that could better define the nature of the characters and perhaps give a glimpse of a story. It's still ambiguous - she may be a prisoner or just protected... they can be lovers, or not. It also can have metaphorical/spiritual implications. Anyway, these things are hard for me, as sometimes my ideas are too vague to grasp and I'm very undecided, haha.

Maybe you should decide (for yourself), and let others figure it out for themselves.  Reading one anothers' thoughts and artistic translation is an entertaining thing through the ages.  Enjoy going forth :)

Perfectly creepy and alluring.  Are they lovers? Rivals? Master and slave?   This image does make me curious!
