General Lykos is The Salvatican Armies first ever supreme commander. Since the days of Exeter; King Monarch the first, the rank of commanding General has always been divided amongst multiple individuals to reduce the risk of a military take over, but by the time of King Monarch the sixth, the number had dropped to only two individuals. And Lykos's loyalty is unquestionable. Advisor Noric knew this when he began to conspire with King Monarch, and it was decided that Lykos and his forces would not be liquidated like Geneal Cagan and his men. Though Lykos survived the backstabbing, he now faces a time of humiliation and subservience at the hands of The Sage Corps, which is rapidly becoming the dominant military force in Salvatica. This is unacceptable to Lykos, a man of great pride and honor, but to betray the king and speak out against him is beyond his scope. Lykos does battle with a six foot sword he recieved from The Royal Guard as a reward for his loyalty to The Queen. The sword is coated in an enchanted alloy that resists a Sages powers. Standing seven feet tall, Lykos uses this monster of a weapon with startling efficiency. His 'ripstorm' ultimate sword technique is unbeatable, and guaranteed death for anyone who gets caught by the high winds and pulled in to the spinning blade. Lykos can twirl this great sword at amazing speed, fast enough to generate sonic booms that he can send at an opponent. If he has a weakness, it's his sense of honor and fair play. A weakness that cost him his left eye in a duel against the young upstart Colonel Rison. It's the only real injury anyone's ever inflicted upon the General, and Rison paid the ultimate price for his sneak attack. Lykos is currently The Black Paw's number one threat, and is working hard to slay them all, believing Monarch will once again honor the Salvatican army if they're able to put a stop to The Black Paw's reign of terror.
Soo...this turned out a bit different than I expected. The background was supposed to be black with only bits of color. But my fingers kinda didn't listen to me and so we have a weird outer space theme. I do what I want! >8D
I don't typically do anthro art, since ferals are more fun for me but it did feel good to practice with them Sorry if her waist is too small, still practicing and it's bugging me D: I meant to make her have fuller curves but when I started digitally coloring it just failed...;^;
Indisputably one of the most important part of Amelia's whole life support armor, her Cybernetic-enhanced vertebral column.
When the scientist grew an ambition to test on her, they realize that she had a shattered spine, with 18 of her 33 vertebrae completely destroyed, save for the top part of her Thoracic bones and the Cerivical. She had also lost her entire Pelvic column and hip bones, as well as a good amount of nerve bundles and spinal cord.
So upon realizing that she would not be an ample test subject with a spine in that condition, they went to rebuilding and strengthened her spine,
Opening her up back and front, taking out with extreme care the individual vertebrae and ribs, and rebuilt them from test results and models provided from earlier experiments.
The vertebrae of the Cervical, Thoracic and Lumbar column were implemented with metalloid reconstruction of the original bones that had been destroyed to make it twice as strong and flexible, they had also implemented several cybernetic enhancements to her spinal cord and nervous system as well, grafting wires and motion sensors to amplify her senses and movement as well.
Since her Pelvic and hip structures were gone and obliterated, it allowed the scientists to create an outlet for any possible changes they may want to aquire when testing and for connection to any other experiments as well. this would become handy for her final experiment.
As this was a major breakthrough for the scientists in terms of the rebuilding of the spine, but not a very pleasant one for Amelia, even though she had life support and pain killers, they didn't prevent her from experiancing the painful and mind shattering sight seeing her body taken apart and being reassembled as if she was merely a toy. This "surgery" was one of the many horrific, if not most scarring memories that would haunt her.
When it was time for her final experiment, the scientists would utilize the Pelvic joint that they left unfinished 15 years ago, for her new body. Because of her spinal cord being transformed into a cybernetic state, it was a much easier operation to fit her pelvis and her upper torso to her lower body, which is her present form.
The lower body held most of her vital organs, spare the stomach and the digestive system, due to her H-E core that is also located below her heart. and since it uses a replicate, if not, a larger version of the cybernetic enhanced spine of Amelia to connect to her well being as well as to give Amelia a natural feel, as if it was really a natural part of her. and with an extension of her spinal cord into the lower body, it also allowed her to have a more complete feel around her surroundings, allowing her to feel every step, movement or touch of her lower body, giving her a more natural touch as compared to simply a mechanical leg with no muscle memory or sensors, making the user feel like they still have no leg, but having a leg there anyways.
The lower body also featured a "second spine". The outer spine crawls up from the lower pelvic up to her waist, where it continues upward, with connecting outer "ribs, to reinforce her inner ribs, and up to her "backpack" with a secondary spinal control circuit, allowinging easier access to her nervous system, but the truth of the circuit system is not known by Amelia about what it really does (foreshadowing). The outer spine acts as a surface body support incase the inner main spine should be incapacitated, allowing a limited movement to escape form danger.
The spinal reconstruction once finished allowed Amelia to lift five times her weight, and can accomplish much more agile movements and speed, as well as sense amplification. It saved Amelia, but it gave her pain as well, with the reconstruction of her spine alotting nearly 7 years of her tortured captivity.
Just another concept to give Amelia a more clearer aspect of her cyborg body. Hope you like it!
P.S. I actually did the research to name the bones listed above. ^^ it was fun.
