This was honestly mostly an experiment with me trying out a few different ways to change up my coloring. As well as just color practice in general. I intended to keep messing with this but I've already spent too long on it. Time to move on to my next thing.
…This is also one of the few pieces of fan art you’re going to see me do on here, haha.
"I’ve walked alongside you organics. I’ve encountered both humans, demons, and mixes of the two. Yet I find myself more comfortable within the virtual world, my home, tattered as it may be. Of course, that doesn’t mean I won’t help you if needed. So long as you’re reasonable about it."
Zavada is a woman whose origin is largely unknown. She lives in the virtual world, the realm of technology, and managed to survive the destruction of most of this realm during the Eight Hour War. It’s assumed she’s a type of artificially intelligent program created by someone quite some time ago and she’s taken it upon herself, as well as at the urging of Veslir, Carl, and others, to become the guardian of the Dead Archives. The Dead Archives is a large host of salvaged servers and hardware where Zavada stores all the information found of the world before the war. She’s proven to be extremely competent at this task, having full control of all the mechanical security in the archives as well as having managed to develop technology that allows her to project herself as a type of hard light structure, giving her physical contact with the real world when needed. With this technology she has physically appeared on the field of battle to fight alongside her allies numerous times, while also keeping part of her processing power in the virtual world to keep an eternal eye on the archives.
"A machine such as I isn’t supposed to have feelings. So I’ll ignore whatever hesitation I may have about killing you. I apologize, but that will simply make it easier for both of us."
Sintro is a rather old character that I haven’t used in quite a few years. He’s an old robot who is rediscovered and given a new body, with his “brain” implanted within it. However, his brain was modified to act more accordingly with how his new owner believes a robot should be, so he is constantly in a mental conflict over the fact he has free will but has all this pressure within his mind to do as he’s commanded. His abilities consist of energy absorption, which he can use to increase the power of his other abilities temporarily, as well as electricity protection and a powerful sword that redirects energy attacks of its own volition, making it very difficult to catch Sintro off guard with such attacks.
"The people of this city regard me as their protector and my troops trust me as their leader, both regardless of my origins. I refuse to fail them and make their trust worthless! Now face me, or realize your folly and flee!"
Veslir Orwep is the general of Racamgi’s military. Racamgi is one of the few, and one of the most important, remaining city states after 60% of humanity was wiped out in the Eight Hour War. He’s not human and chooses to hide his true form within his large armor suit, primarily out of the desire to avoid scaring the people of the city as well as for his own protection. He’s surprisingly fast for his large size (towering at ten feet) but still cannot move as quickly as others who are primarily built for speed. His strength lies in his resilience and physical power, as well as his strategic mind, of which very few can prove themselves equal. Veslir’s primary weakness would have to be the care he has for his ttoops, for he often uses himself as a shield for them in the field and refuses to sacrifice them unless absolutely necessary. An intelligent adversary could take advantage of such a thing.
