Kuroinu Rebellion: The Dark Queen

"Several Hundred years ago, a giant castle known
as the "Black Citadel" had appeared in the north. 
You could say that its appearance was the origin
of a great change, setting a chain of events that
would culminate in a war spanning entire
generations. Powerful Dark Magic had turned the land
surrounding the Black Citadel into a barren
wasteland in mere minutes. 
The Sky became blood red no matter what hour
of the day it was.
It was a land filled with noxious air devoid of
all vegetation. Any and all fresh wetlands had been
turned into murky toxic swamps.
Just being in the area was enough to weaken the
constitution of any mortal, to say nothing of how it
stripped away morale.
Inside however was rumored that a beautiful dark
elf sat at the top of the Black Citadel. Soon enough
this area became known as the
"Dark Queen's Country"."

This was a Request made by :icondeadguy1775: During my Request stream in October, However i did not liked how it looked so i reworked it, Plus it didn't hurt that this was part of the actual CG list of pictures for the Kuroinu Rebellion Game so there is that.

Hope you guys like it

Long live the Dark queen!

In both versions NNOPE! :D

Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't she control monsters before the series to have them kidnap and rape human women? Why is it so many people don't care about this?
LionheartXIII's avatar
LionheartXIIIHobbyist Digital Artist
In actuality she did not control them, they simply went under her because of her power. If they were in her control they wouldn't have folded and fled or join vult and his forces.

and in Rebellion this is expanded on as the Various monsters were originally the Dark Elves that were corrupted and Twisted into various beasts and monsters unable to control their base impulses given to them by their Dark God.

I just read her trope page and didn't she loose her powers at the beginning of the series thus releasing her control over them? By no means is Vult a good guy but she's no saint herself

Nope, She never had control over them to begin with, and yes she lost her powers at the beginning and I mean like at the 11th hour beginning with no explanation on why or how it just did and then the monsters go "Lol now we can bang her"

The VN Never Portayed her as a Good guy nor a Bad guy and from her interactions with Chloe and the Other Characters, She was portrayed to be a Decent person (Despite the others being in the same situation as her).

Alot of Information is very Scarce for Kuroinu because its all about teh 'lol Happy R$#@ Times' 
sekiryuutei2's avatar
fair enough, like I said I just went off her trope page

Remember: Trope pages are more there to poke fun at stuff and shouldn't be taken as fact too much. :D

Alot of Info either is from the VN Itself (And even there was barely anything in terms of the bigger picture) or what I had to do when making rebellion was make ALOT Of Head canon Assumptions.

Do you ever wonder what became of other Dark Elves in Origa's land?
LionheartXIII's avatar
LionheartXIIIHobbyist Digital Artist
They never say, but their is confirmation that Half Dark Elves live in the cities most as prostitutes or slaves very few actually have stable Jobs.

However in Rebellion I wrote in that the Dark Elves are a Dying Race due to the Great Elven Wars and most were cursed to become Feral Beasts (I.E Most became Orcs) none in small part to their Dark God whom they sealed away after realizing the mistake they made. 
Raptorcloak's avatar
Wow, I did something similar in my tale where Origa's war against the chivalry wiped all but four of her forces and she thinks they're the last of their kind; not knowing there's another group of Dark Elves hiding from her.

She woulnd't last even a day in Skyrim.
Raptorcloak's avatar
Not an expert on Skyrim, but why's that?
Pootisman90's avatar
Stormcloaks, Thalmor, Khajiit and Argonians hate Dark Elves more than Olga hate humans. And there's the fact that even Dunmer don't hold a candle to themselves. Plus, that 'humans are evil' schtick wouldn't work (AT ALL) in Tamriel for the single fact that there are at least four races of human, and the elven races commit more and worse atrocities at large (cannibalism, daedra worshipping, ethnic cleansing, slavery, racism... of course, some of those are either outlawed or, in the Wood Elves case, a necessity when you have to choose between eating the guts of the guy that tried to shiv you or eat your house), but yeah, if they do bad things they do it worse than humans.

Top Kuroinu girl. Next to Maya. After watching the anime, playing Rebellion was a huge catharsis, even if it was a demo. Good luck to the game and the rest of your work.

I think the word your looking for is Catalyst not Catharsis XD

Thanks dood I hope i don't let you down :salute: 
TitaniumTyger's avatar
TitaniumTygerHobbyist General Artist
Oh no, I meant catharsis because of Vault's assaults on the ladies. It was satisfying to break Olga and Maya out and give Vault's cronies the proverbial finger. Sure I watched the hentai, but I couldn't help but wanted some vanilla stuff or someone to help instead of...yeah.

She messed up her land's ecosystem through use of black magic, Al Gore would have a field day with her.

hey when your the last of your race given incredible power and everyone around you hates you based on your race and species you got to find a way to protect yourself thoroughly 
shadowkyurem15's avatar
There are betters ways to protect yourself and the remainder of your species, ways that don't screw the ecosystem over and make it into a swampish looking hellhole.  For examples, placing the land under a powerful forcefield, placing powerful ward stones in specific areas or even surrounding the land with a mountain side.
