His name is Kaeydan Arie and he is a scout. He wields two blades that, when combined, make a compass. The inscriptions that revolve around each half of the blade allow the weapon's halves to bind to each other, forming the fully functional compass.
When I made this, I wanted to go for a believable outfit. A scout, in my mind, is a lot like a thief and I didn't like the idea of a thief wearing armour so I went for a more, tight-fitting, easily maneuverable outfit. My favorite part would have to be either the quilted jacket or the scarf, but that's just me <3
Kaeydan himself was raised in the desert which would explain the theme of his outfit (which I tried to make as...medieval fantasy-esque as I could).
Anyway, time for backstory. Kaeydan was born to a merchant family. His father had a job transporting a load of goods to a kingdom beyond the desert. Not knowing that they had crossed into Sahid territory, the merchant caravan was attacked and Kaeydan's mother and father were both killed. Kaeydan, only one at the time, was taken into the Sahid clan and raised to be a warrior. He, at first, didn't have great skills and was frequently bested by children younger than him, but, in adulthood, he began to accelerate in skill. Plagued by the knowledge that his family had been slain by those that raised him, Kaeydan lashed out, using his new-found abilities to exterminate a majority of the Sahid clan and earning himself the nickname "aasefatun ramleya" or "sandstorm" as well as making him a constant target for the grief stricken Sahid clan. He happened to have been caught in an ambush and, unprepared for battle, he was slow to react and ended up losing sight in his right eye to a well placed blade stroke.
At present, Kaeydan just wanders around Arrendol in the company of Alexis (the second contest submission ;D), searching for some meaning to his void life. He's not so much a trouble maker as he is a trouble magnet as it seems problems stalk him, making his life more difficult. Prince Raven happens to be one of his problems and, though he has a biting feeling that the prince and his party will not simply go away, he refuses to assist the noble in his quest to recapture his kingdom from Nero's grip.
Anyway, enjoy this <3 I'm probably going to make another submission before deadline. <3

This is the Trimonosaur! Its long, slender body and cone shaped head enables it to tunnel through the heaps of debris and its long, extending arms can remove or claw through anything that it can't. Its arms usually support most of its weight while its four insect-like legs provide the forward movement. Its arms can extend an extra 6 inches to reach for its prey. Its eye is on a long, flexible stalk hidden inside its three-part mouth, which is lined with short, but very sharp, teeth.
Okay, there's the bio. Now here's what I need to say:
This thing is absolutely the largest thing I have ever made! It's over 43 inches long! Why so big? I wanted to make a REAL creature from "9." Life-size. And it is fully articulated! Fingers, arms, legs, mouth, everything moves! This was REALLY hard to do, everything was so sharp. I found everything I needed around my house. And it's all held together with wire or screws and bolts. The only tape I used was on the eye, because wire just didn't want to cut it. The burlap is all sewed on with embroidery thread and some copper wire.
This guy is made of: stainless steel wire mesh an old pair of scissors a stainless steel pipe 'Erector" parts Popsicle sticks painted silver a spark plug red wire rubber washers aluminum sheeting copper plating "Exacto" knives 2 inspection tools bolts burlap embroidery thread copper wire stainless wire 3 hinges steel diamond grating ball-and-socket joints from a hands-free tool 1 rubber band 1 wire tie 1 red LED 1 flashlight head 1 goose-neck lamp plastic tubes painted silver
And several things that I have no clue as to what they are. You would not believe how hard those ball-and-socket joints are to find! Apparently they're made exclusively for inspection tools and those hands-free things.
