Sval Lakum the Arbiter

It says on the Halo Nation wiki that there was an arbiter in service during the Fall of Reach, just before Thel 'Vadum was branded a traiter and given a chance at redemption by becoming the Arbiter.

I had thought of making an elite OC a good while ago, but decided that making him a religiously challenged arbiter during the fall of reach would be good for a story. his 'companion' character is a new Spartan OC i've been tinkering with named Faith. I'll post a pic of her once its ready.

in the meantime, my Copiic refills FINALLY arrived. so now that all my greys are back up to full speed, i can -finally- finish all the fucking commissions i've had backing up like rush hour traffic.

I do apologise to all my commissioners who have been very /patiently/ waiting. no seriously, thank you. I know waiting for what you've already paid for sucks.

anyways, i'll post more about Sval and Faith in later weeks, perhaps as I finally write up the first chapter to the story.

Who the fuck would you do a thing like that? And why are you using an account with a matching last name? are you friends with that shitfaced cocksucker that tried stealing my character, whose still parading around using his name and likeness for his shitty roleplays?

if you are friends with that jizzstain, please do me, and the rest of humanity a favor and tell him/her/it to kindly fuck off, stop using my art/character, and make his own.

And stop pretending you're somehow related to s'val because he's my character. my story. Not yours to go futzing around with.

I'd like to say iv brought this name Sval Lakum to life on xbox, Halo reach, iv been using the name for over a year and a half , and I'm in something called the Sangheili community , it's where all who like Elites make there own fleets and have there own ranking structure , I my self am an arbiter , and I have my own bloodline , (basically like a family) It took me awhile to find this page but I thank you for making it , other wise I would not be where I am ! (:

Oh my god, this is funny and so bad.
You are stealing an image, a name, a personality, and a character that isn't yours.
Than you prance online and brag about it to the original artist.

I'd recommend you stop that pitiful 'dream' you have and get a grip.
Me, Alxias, and a ton of others are in the sangheili community and we frown at this sort of behavior.

For a person who cannot even 'think up' an original character much less manage to CREATE one by mindset alone is just.. sad. A sad excuse of a person's imagination.

So step out of your imaginary world of stealing characters, stealing names, and thinking your an arbiter when clearly you don't even OWN a character yourself.

If Alxias didn't make it clear enough, this artist. Can sue you for just about anything, you know that right? SUE YOU for money, for theft, anything she deems worthy.

So the best you can do is. DROP THIS STUPID GAME OF YOURS.
DROP THE NAME
DROP THE CHARACTER
DROP EVERYTHING.

Create your own shit.

Yea just so you know what you're doing is against the law and the original creator can SUE you for identity, and art theft. 
As I have many times for people stealing my artwork/characters. 

Might want to do your homework next time you get a 'great' idea.

..And not only are you roleplaying as MY CHARACTER, you're using his likeness and name as your own and pretty much EVERY FUCKING WEBSITE?

Please stop using my character. stop using MY ART. 

it specifically says in the description "Please do not copy, modify, or redistribute without my expressed permission. thanks."

to which you have CLEARLY IGNORED my request. I am not Okay with this in any way.

Remove my art from your accounts. stop using my character's name. go design your own Elite character. its not that fucking hard.

wait. so.. you made a persona based on my original character? :/

Dude a little consideration would've been appreciated, yaknow, asking me if i'm OK with this?

And for the record I'm not. S'val Lakum is my original creation, designed for a story i've been writing.
