Personality: The vigilant watcher that guards over all the inhabitants of her wooded realm. Usually the talkative one and often the activist, she feels the need to express all the questions and concerns the creatures of her realm have to the council or elements. She understands that unfortunately those arguments mostly fall on deaf ears amoung the lords and ladys of other elements. As of late, humans have been wreaking havoc and destruction amoung her woodlands. Under peaceful circumstances, she would gladly welcome them, but they often come bearing arms and agents of destruction to the creatures of the forest. De'eranthial has found a common bond if not friendship with Arctaeon, the lord of ice. They occasionally enjoy each other's company, but it is De'eranthial who does most of the talking. She holds quite a bit of respect for Arctaeon's martial prowess and often asks him to spar and teach her some of his techniques. She is an excellent marksman with her bow "Ivy Heartseeker" but would like to better her skills with close combat weaponry. She feels it is important to protect herself as more foriegner wander into her realm. She holds a vast understanding of the cycles of life and death, but that does not stop her from feeling heavyness of heart when witnessing the death of a child of the forest. When it is neccessary, she will use her magic to mend injuries and rejuvinate the flora and fauna to continue and extend the life of the forest. She will go out of her way to help those deserving of it. She is greatly loyal to all those she calls comrade and a fierce guardian and protector.
This was done for the Worms 3D competition on Gameplay [link], and I just found out I won in the 21+ category. Yay! I won a... 'superb selection of Sega goodies', whatever that might be. The comment they gave my pic was wicked: "An amazingly drawn, inspired picture capturing the humour and essence of the game perfectly. Excellent work Jessica." I'm chuffed!
The Scorpion Gun can only be found now in general circulation when one is "liberated" from high security museums or reverse engineering tech labs. Why? Because this is the deadliest known ray gun in the galaxy.
A long dead race of secretive aliens sometimes referred to as the Ysslx crafted these. They are gone, so is most of their technology but some still pops up from time to time. The scorpion gun so slanged because of it's unique design also appropriately claims the greatest sting... an energy discharge of such potency "slung" through a sub dimension just under ours which allows it to proceed uniterrupted through vast amounts of most known materials or energy fields of any strength! It disrupts many technologies but ALL life form functions instantly and, I might add, painfully. Not all of the controls are fully known. Be wary...
The closest thing you will find to a "real, live ray gun," like in the old comics, movies, serials, and science fiction stories. These are a part of my "Retro Tech" series made out of wood of all things which gives them a cool look and feel. It's a FULL, LIFE SIZE replica (or 1:1 scale finished model) all ready for display. It's longest dimension is about 8", and then about 3" by 3" wide and high (remember, 2 1/2 centimeters to an inch).
Made almost 100% from wood unless stated otherwise (I sometimes use tiny amounts of other things) I use paint and many finishes, often metallic, and make sure a lot of details shine through, often even the wood grain itself despite high tech themes. They maintain an often retro, sometimes even rustic look and feel to them, like an "olde worlde" toy or something (some more so than others ... I am told that surprisingly many do not even look like they are wood, but like metal or some manmade material... you can usually tell by the photos).
SSA series latest model, with the improvement on movability and balance of overall stucture and scale.
After the development of SSA Test Frame, the development team move on to mulitry appication of the SSA Test Frame. Two pioneer mecha, SSA New Frame 01 and 02, was created. 02 focus on battle on the surface of the planet, as 02 is enquiped with wheels, close combat weapon and machine gun.
