Personality & Background: He's quite the ladies man, and tries to charm every woman he sees, much to the annoyance of his sister. However, he never gets into serious relationships, and gently turns woman down if they show more than just a casual attraction. He doesn't mind one night stands, but don't expect more than that.

Kalde doesn't trust woman enough to get serious with them. At some point he met the woman of his dreams. One day he build up the courage to propose to her, she laughed hard and told him that while it was fun being with him, that was all. She also told him she'd been with someone else as well for a long time now and if she had to choose she'd rather stay with the other guy, then she left, leaving a heartbroken Kalde in total shock. This hurt him pretty badly and ended up changing him. He closed himself off, never shared his true feelings with anyone again. He was always a bit flirty, but that escalated a lot. He didn't trust woman anymore, but still craved their company, so this seemed ideal. Kalde has always been cheerful as well, but now he started using it more as a mask, pretending everything was just fine. The people around him didn't even notice the change, besides Akidah, she did notice but didn't know why. When she asked him he pretended not to know what she meant while smiling broadly.
Nobody knows this about him, and Kalde is determined to keep it secret. However, one day he meets an Atlantean girl, Coraleana. He hits on her and she does not want anything to do with him. This confuses him, he's never really met a woman who reacted this way to him. When asked why she answered she doesn't like sex obsessed pervs. It made Kalde think, he never realized that's how people might see him, and he didn't like it, because deep down that's not who he is. There was something about that Atlantean girl and for some reason he decided to confide in her and told her about the girl of his dreams and what it did to him. Coraleana is the only one now who knows, she in turn confided in him about Marcus. They became close and Coraleana became the first real friend Kalde ever had and he became a sort of big brother to her, which made his sister rather jealous...

When Kalde was young he and his younger brother Dahka were playing somewhere they weren't supposed to and got attacked by a vicious animal (no name, still needs to be created!) Kalde tried to defend his brother, enduring quite a beating, which is how he got the scars on his back. Sadly his brother got killed and if it wasn't for (another creature which still needs to be created!) he would have died too. The friendly creature saved his life and made the bad one flee. Kalde thanked it and petted it to show his gratitude. Kalde's father and some knights came to look for them and thought the friendly creature was the one who attacked his sons (it looks more vicious than it is). So he ordered the knights to kill it. Kalde desperately tried to make them understand that this creature didn't hurt them, that it saved him. But despite Kalde's cries to not do it they cut it's head off right in front of him.
The loss of his brother is what made him become a knight, so he could become strong, and would never fail again to protect someone precious to him. The death of the friendly creature made him lose trust in people.

Because of that and what his dream lady did to him he never trusts people enough to become friends, or rely on anyone else. (with the exception of Coraleana and his sister) Despite this he's still very sociable and talkative. He doesn't mind being the center of attention. He's also very energetic, spontaneous, active and impulsive. He likes to act instead of making a plan first. 
As a knight he prefers to do things alone, feeling he can do it better that way and no one will be able to get in the way, which annoys his superiors greatly. At some point Kalde pushed it too far and got kicked out. He took this opportunity to travel the world, which is how he met Coraleana.

Kalde is very messy, his room looks like a bomb went off and he hates organizing or having to plan things out in advance. Surprisingly he is a very good cook, and loves doing it. 
Kalde also has a little secret he doesn't want anyone to know. As tough and cool as he seems, he totally adores cute little animals and children. He's also very good with both of them. Despite this however, he doesn't want children of his own, he feels he just wouldn't be a good enough father.

Later he meets a Nyna called Leilani. They're very similar and seem to enjoy each other's company. He realizes he actually might be falling in love with her, which does scare him... 

Characteristic Phrases:
- Hey there sheka, what's up?
- Artra!
- Ga sha ardash!
- Relax daga
- Never start something you can't finish! (mostly used before a battle)
(Kalde loves to use Agarthean words while still speaking in English.
'sheka' means 'honey, sweetie, baby'
'artra' is an Agarthean swear word
'Ga sha ardash!' means something like 'wow!', 'oh my god!' or 'you can say that again!'
'daga' means friend, buddie)

(there are three levels of magic. One being the weakest and the third being the strongest)
(magic)1. Embers (level 1; does low damage to all enemies), Fiery Flame (level 2; deals fire damage to one enemy), Magma Explosion (level 3; does high fire damage to all enemies)
2. Aerial Jump (high jump, to avoid attacks, or can be combined with Dive Slash)
3. Thunder Sword (has lightning effect)
4. Dragadin Dash (high speed dash forward followed by a horizontal slash)
5. Dragadin Roar (decreases the defense of enemies)
6. Burn Sword (has fire effect, some 'quick' sword slashes (as quick as it can be with a huge heavy sword))
7. Lightning Trust (has lighting effect, trusts sword forward, trying to pierce enemy)
8. Sky Jump (2x as high as Aerial Jump, can avoid more attacks, 2x as powerful when combined with Dive Slash)
9. Dive Slash (used after Aerial or Sky Jump)
10. Dragadin Rush (series of 10 'fast' sword slashes)
Special attack; Soaring Dragadinflame (high jump backwards, fast diagonally towards enemy, fire in dragadin (dragon like creature native to Agartha) like form surrounding Kalde, piercing enemy)

Hmmm, what an interesting outfit he has….kinda reminds me of a ninja a little bit….I think it's the netting on his arm.

What a bitch that broke his heart, she could have had more tact then that.
He'll find the right one eventually though, even though it would probably not be Coral…the poor baby. :(
But he's got himself a surrogate sister.

Very nice job on his outfit, looking forward to more interesting outfits for him. :nod:
Coraleana Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This outfit totally evolved when I was inking it in the ref. XD; he used to only have netting on the arm, but then it turned into this. I like it. XD

Yeah, he'll be fine. :) No he's not Coral's type, or vice versa. X3 He new love could just be Leilani though.. ;) (that also makes for an interesting child if they had one! XDD good thing Kalde doesn't want to have any)

Not sure he has many. Of course that all depends on a person's taste. X3
Sheshin Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Don't you love it when that happens?! :D

Children, aren't for everyone, I know I don't want any.
I think I'd have a nervous break down if I had a child.
I do not like children very much. I don't like the screaming and shrieking that children do.
And I know that my high functional autism is to blame for that. 

Well he could I mean you said Coral has a spacesuit, I can't imagine that she has a interest in going into space. XD
Does she?
Coraleana Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I do. :D Besides I'd rather have it happen during the making of the ref (or before), rather than after it's finished. XD; 

I don't want any myself either. Which may be weird to some since I do have a diploma in child care. X3 I just know I can't be the mom they need and deserve.

But that's just for the specials, they're supposed to be more.. unique, different, whatever. X3
Sheshin Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
True that. 

That is a little unsual, sis. 

Okay, so he's gonna have specials too?
Coraleana Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yes, everyone has a 'special' outfit, just for fun. Though some are cooler than others. Kalde's might be the least interesting one, but I couldn't think of anything better.
Sheshin Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh? What is his special outfit. 
Coraleana Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
he has a spy outfit, but sadly it looks kinda... not good enough.^^; But I can't seem to come up with a better looking design. :/

Aw his story, its so heartbreaking T_T no wonder he act the way he dose to women. Its good Coraleana met him and he could see not all women are like that. I guess Constense are not so good influenze around him then. XD She also have a broken background but she is treating lovers and flirts as a one time thing for other reasons. =)

Love his outfit and its so nice to get a little story to him too ;)
Coraleana Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Still, I feel like they would make good drinking buddies. XD If Constance likes to drink that is. They're both very similar and neither wants any commitment. X3

Thanks. :) I feel like all my chars need a little bit of background, so people know who they are more and understand their personalities better. 
AilwynRaydom Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Im sure they would be good friends XD and they do all crazy things together.
Im pretty sure Constence find him usefull for her schemes and enjoy his company. ;)

I would do the same, Might will one day hehe. I am just not a good writer and I cant explain myself very well
how I feel about the characters. ^^;
Coraleana Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
haha, yeah, partners in crime. X3 I'm sure Kalde wouldn't mind helping her with some of her schemes. 

I know the feeling, I'm not good at it too. You know what helps a lot? Looking at anime or game wikias (not the normal wikipedia). Like the big series have their own wikia pages, and very often each main character has a whole description about their personality and their backstory. It really helps. :) I'll show you one as an example;… (just type in "final fantasy wikia" (or whatever series you want to look at) into google and you'll get the link to that series wikia)
AilwynRaydom Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
oh that's interesting, I will sure keep that in mind in till next time I need
to write a bio for my characters : 3 very useful stuff!
Coraleana Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It is. :D It's helped me a lot too.
aha-mccoy Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2017
this reference is nice too. those clothes look pretty good. I like the fishnet parts. nice job!
Coraleana Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
thank you :)
aha-mccoy Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2017
K-E-Y-K-O Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2017
He's good looking. :)
Coraleana Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
thanks :)
K-E-Y-K-O Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2017
No problem. :)
oreana Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Poor, handsome Kalde. :heart: Hearing his backstory is so disheartening, but it is wonderful that he might actually find love in the end. :love: Such a sweet and lovable man--I love that, well, love is his one weakness in this world given how it blew up in his face. :c I do hope it works out for him in the end. I will keep my fingers crossed!

I adore his main outfit! He looks so amazing here~! His abilities sound amazing too. o.o I also love how the word 'sheka' rolls right off the tongue. Very lovely catchphrases he has. x3
Coraleana Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Either way he'll be okay, he's a strong guy, and he does seem to enjoy his life. :)

Thanks. I loved coming up with the Agarthean words. I got the idea from a book I tried to read, where this character would use words from a different language, and just by the way he used them you could instantly know what they meant. :) So I wanted to do that for Kalde, and it's a nice way to pretend there's another language without having to make a full one. ;) I have a few more than the ones you see here, but sadly since I won't be writing it those words will never be used..
oreana Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That is good and what is most important. :heart:

I do love that idea. xD Making a language that has bits and pieces, and you don't have to write it all out. :nod: Oh really? :? Well, ideas and subjects do change, do they not? I know I hated remodeling a lot of my original ideas, but eh. ^^; Stuff happened, and I had to remodel some characters completely!
Coraleana Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, it's a lot less work too. XD; 
I don't really mind normally. But this 'language' was especially made for the novel/story. I mean you can't use it in art.^^; I looked forward to using it, but oh well. Same goes for the Atlantean one.. and I spend so much time on it. x.x
