The Seekers of the Mask by kilara The Seekers of the Mask by kilara
So these are the new designs of the Xiro Myth characters, and well I decided to post them since I have had them done for a couple months now, and I have nothing else to share.
OTL yes I know tl:dr
Someday I might post the villians XD
(or maybe not) ¬_¬
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Name: CeeJeh
Age: 21
Race: Pandoran
Height: 5’7
Weight: 145 lbs
WOC: Dual swords
Personality: Ceejeh is a dashing young man, he knows the right things to say, and who to say them to. With an easygoing view on life, the only thing he seems to dislike is how people treat each other and swears his time to making a place where no one would feel unwanted. His favorite pastime is chasing the ladies. He will do almost anything to impress them, and will do anything to defend them.
History: His parents moved up to Kyronis from the desert during the Junk war. Thusly Ceejeh led a relatively simple life. But when he got older he saw the distaste towards the races in the south, and banded together any outcasts and rejects who wished the hatred not to spread. He currently lives in Mitchell a town near the border of Kyronis, and he monitors everything that goes on there.
Special info: Lots of people think of his monocle as stylish until he tells them that it is enchanted with the ability to look through clothes. No one knows if it is true or not, but people find it either entertaining or disgusting.


Name: Chowli
Age: 15
Race: Human
Height: 5’1”
Weight: 105 lbs
WOC: Book and Crossbow
Personality: Chowli is a happy kid, he has had a happy life and despite his visions he sees no reason to be down.
History: When he was born without eyes his parents saw him as an abomination, so they relinquished him to the temple, which took in malformed children. The priestesses treated him well, but it wasn’t long before he had chronic nightmares. After that the priestesses started finding him passed out around the temple. One time when they woke him up he spoke of arriving danger and told her to get everyone to safety. With good reason, Vladimus’ men came. The temple survived the encounter because of Chowli. A couple years later a Neflim girl came, Chowli told her that his visions included her and that it is important that he accompanies her on her journey.
Special info: He is physically blind due to not being born with eyes, but he is not totally helpless, he can see through time, past, present, and future. Even though it is not completely under his control, the visions are more accurate when he is in more danger.


Name: Hiro
Age: 18
Race: Human
Height: 5’11”
Weight: 198 lbs
WOC: Fists
Personality: Very thick headed, he listens little to others and prefers to take the most direct rout to get anything done. He doesn’t tolerate anyone’s bullshit.
History: Hiro was an average little boy, from an average farm. His Mother tended to the farm, and his father went about selling his wares, and even though his father was a half Talean, Hiro showed no signs of it. The junk war started in the south and many families left to go fight in it, not all came back. One such family was a friend of his father’s and they left behind a son. Thus is how James came into Hiro’s life. Hiro didn’t much like the idea of a little brother, but soon became really protective of him.
One day wile playing in the old barn, it started to collapse and James wasn’t out of it in time, so Hiro went in and protected him. It took the neighbors hours to dig them out, and when they did, James was unhurt, but Hiro was severely wounded. Hiro is still highly protective of his brother.

Name: James
Age: 22
Race: Human
Height: 6’2”
Weight: 235 lbs
WOC: Long sword
Personality: He is very superstitious, and very fond of folklore. He believes that legends and other myths were once in part true, so he keeps his mind and eyes open. He feels that he owes Hiro his life and will follow him wherever he goes.
History: He comes from a noble family, distant cousins of the King. The Junk war Happened in the south making his father leave to go fight it. Where as his mother had died a few years earlier. When word came back from the war that his father was not coming back, James was sent off to a really nice farm to live. The people there were really nice, but their boy liked to glare angrily at him. One day the barn he was playing in collapsed on top of him, luckily Hiro came to his rescue. He felt bad that he was unhurt and that Hiro was, so he decided that he will be the best he can be, and joined the knights when he was old enough.


Name: Kestryl
Age: 89
Race: Talean
Height: 6’2”
Weight: 147 lbs
WOC: Claws
Personality: Highly arrogant and not tolerant of others mistakes, but even more her own. She is determined to be the best no matter what. She keeps all but Paido at a distance, for she doesn’t want to end up depending on anyone else for anything.
History: Born from a banshee family, raised to be proud, everyone knew there would be a good chance that she would become a banshee as well. None suspected so young, One day while out practicing her hunting skills, a kyet rammed into her face. Throwing the thing aside she noticed it was fleeing from a roc. As the roc swooped by, it caught her leg with its wing and broke it. Pissed off from the pain, she short fire at the beast on it’s next swoop by, and it caught on fire and crashed into the ground. She claimed the carcass as her own and dragged it back to town with her, the kyet followed. She was quickly presented to the Mizgarth and a ceremony held to proclaim her as a Banshee. The kyet was named Paido and became her familiar. He is her best friend, even if she won’t admit it.
Special info: The glow on her tattoos will sometimes have a blue tint to them. And for a talean 80 is about the age they reach maturity.


Name: Kilara
Age: ???
Race: Human
Height: 5’6”
Weight: 98 lbs
WOC: Healing
Personality: New to the world, her curiosity knows no bounds, but also being mute those questions often go unanswered. So she has to get creative with her ways of understanding. Hiro was imprinted on her, and she considers him her master. She loves him, but he will never return the favor.
History: Born from the DNA of an Amsk and a halfblood, she had not seen a human before. And during a test of another Orix versus the W-lolth she was piloting, an accident happened, sending her flailing down to the surface before she was completed.
Special info: She is not me, I personally see more connections between me and Mizgarth, or Drej. She is also not Ty, they are totally different characters from different stories. Her healing works like the transfer of HP but in a physical sense.


Name: Naya
Age: 15
Race: Neflim
Height: 4’8”
Weight: 74 lbs
WOC: Staff
Personality: Out of all of the neflim she is likely the most high strung. She tends to over react to everything, and the slightest grievances have the chance of pissing her off. She does have a heart and cares about people, and is highly affectionate to those people.
History: She is a young Neflim priestess, happy to have always studied with the group, and never gone into the outside world. But when it came to choose who got the duty of going across the world to check on the ancient relics, she was the one who got the ‘short straw’. So she took the staff of the protector and headed off to the mainland. The first relic she checked on was missing, so she went to the closest monastery to see if they knew where it had gone. There she witnessed one of Chowli’s visions, it cryptically told of the reasons behind the missing relic. Naya demanded that he join her on her journey. The priestesses disagreed, but Chowli didn’t. At night he left with Naya in secret.
Special info: Naya might look like a cat but she is not, she is more related to a fenic fox/gennet. And she would likely be very insulted if she was called a cat. The spirit in her staff is an avian’s soul, don’t know which one though.


Name: Tank
Age: 39
Race: Human
Height: 6’11”
Weight: 352 lbs
WOC: Mr. Hammer
Personality: A calm man of few words and large stature. He knows he is intimidating yet tries to keep a safe feeling about him. Although he is usually passive he will use his size to scare people who are upsetting the peace. He likes alcohol but never gets drunk.
History: He was once part of the blacksmith’s guild, but a rather large accident happened that claimed many lives and his arm. He tried to convince the guild leaders to make preventative measures so it would not happen again, but they would not hear it for it was too profitable. Angry he left the guild and started his own shop. The guild tried to sabotage his shop but he was too good and his reputation spread like wildfire. He now lives on the edge of town, only doing jobs for those he believes deserve it.
Special info: He slowly rebuilt his arm by himself using clockwork designs, and the relatively new steamwork concepts. He is a rather large man, and is really hard to stop doing something when he chooses to do it, thus earning him the nickname of Tank.

Great work, I love lineups. BTW, I'm sure it wasn't intentional, but James looks like he's missing an arm, the shoulder isn't quite the same length and the fact that the arm is behind the cloak only helps the illusion.

Interesting characters! I like Naya the most. And she does have a neat looking clothing and fox type characters are neat. When I have time, after a con I am doing stuff for and an animation I need to get done, I might draw her one day as a gift.

So. This idiot here was pouring over Kestryl's every detail because I *love* her and everyone else, too. Just Kestryl a tad more D: , when I realized that everybody's details were, in fact, hyperlinks to refsheets! So I squeed like an 8-year-old and drooled at them all. 8D

I'd just like to point out for I'm sure the 6785685967th time. Today, probably, that your skills, both in drawing and story creativity, are so incredibly top-notch and fantastic. I *adore* these guys, and I really hope to see a lot more of them! especially Kestryl<3<3

kilara Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
I don't completely understand why everyone loves Kestryl so much, it isn't like she has the most amazing design ever, all I can think is that maybe it is the sex appeal?

Like I like Kestrel, but I also like the other characters too...
Tho I kinda have to since they are the main characters of XM.

Which on that note, it is nice to know that you like the humanoid XM characters, instead of shunning them in favor of their historical predecessors. (The avians XD)

:iconenaxn:
Enaxn Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Pah. I mean, she's sexay and all that, but I personally like her because I'm *always* a sucker for the broody/smug personality types. Seeing her on her refsheet with the smug grin and the *eyeroll*:\ expression made me squee on the inside. I'm assuming that she's intelligent to back it up, too. <3 and if I completely just botched her personality... I am really sorry >>

And yes! Like I said, I love everybody like Tank! *loves the huge/physical type almost as much, but Kestryl holds a small place in my heart. :B

And the hoomans are the main characters, after all! What good's a story if everyone only pays attention to the backstory? And they're all lovely and original and I bet they mesh well as a party. XD
