Ba'buir Xadro the Berserker by DarthVengeance0325 Ba'buir Xadro the Berserker by DarthVengeance0325
Warning: Full View, while recommended for all those lovely scars and facial details and the glints of gold in the silvering hair, is MASSIVE.

This wonderful rendition of my dear old Mandalorian berserker was done by :iconnate-san: on commission- he's got a lot of grand art there if you want to check it out. :) He also did the black and white Darth Vengeance picture for me awhile back. :D

Xadro Akaan'agol is a creation of :icondarthvengeance0325: and :iconmnemonides: . :3 That he's an Ijaat patriarch is something of a long story, ... ;3

How he lost his eyebrows is a better one. :eyes: Burns everywhere that day.

Grandpa's seven foot and can still kick shebs decentlike.

Is this the one you wrote the story about? The guy who was killing people while thinking about when he was going to retire?

Wow. Nicely done.

That's the thing about Mando grandpas. They can still give you a beatdown if you don't watch yourself and show some respect. ;)

How to combine oya and amen in one word in answer to your valid and sublime statement is now a question that shall haunt me until I get it right. :D Ba'buire are tough. \3 Otherwise they don't get that far. ;p

Exactly. There's a reason why it's a good idea in Mando etiquette(lol, such as it is!) to pay respects to Mando elders. They became elders for a reason. :XD:

Got a few others in the works and stories, of course, but Xadro's farthest along. Mando'ade bring me joy.

Always liked the Mythosaur Axe meself, but it's just as easily employed like a hammer, so thankee. ... albeit a hammer with sharp edges, but the thickness of the blade does give it a fair bit of blunt force and concussive trauma on impact with the cutting. *ramble*

Indeed, the mass made me assume it twas a hammer, but I can see the axe now. Tell me, what is it made of, cortolsis perhaps?

Now to go see Galaar become a patriarch. :la: ;p

Actualllllly, if I get TOR, a house, and bills paid decently, my nexxxt random commission might be one of your side of the family. :3 Maybe get them all, someday down the road.

And Saora is smart enough to just walk away from a massive Mando with a title like "the Berserker". XD

Ooooooooooo Very nice!
Like Kar'issa would definitely be afraid of him just a bit, very intimidating.

Xadro's had decades to build intimidating. :3 But if he lives long enough to meet Kar'issa, it'll be a very pleasant surprise. He's this old when Jahaal, Kar'tayli, and Galaar were little. The twenty years of Empire plus post NH would tip him close to a hundred then. ._. If he's still fighting then, I'll be equally surprised.

On the other hand, we can hope. Out of curiosity and leaving Xadro a moment here, did Kar'issa know her own ba'buire?

Yes, but he unfortunately died while trying to defend her and her brother while they were escaping.
