The competition is looking awsome so far, good luck to you all.
I just want to get my idea out quickly, did a few quick sketches last night and I'm still working on the entire story behind my character. I will update it as i continue to develop her.
Character description and background:
Leonora The Invoker (her name means the light of the sun).
Leonora's people are known as Invisigoth's, they dwell on a planet called Necronym, a planet flowing with magical energy. It is known for its might and power throughout the galaxy. Necronym is found in the CGsociety solar system. The Invisigoth's serve the almighty God Necronos, god of death, destruction and reincarnation. Necronos is a powerfull God that bestows many blessings apon his people in return for an entire lifetime of servitude. Those that oppose him are destroyed by his legions of crazed followers. Reincarnated hero's and mages control these massive army's, mages that are granted eternal life after staying true to him untill death.
Leonora is an extremely powerfull fire/lava mage, she draws her power from one of three artifacts handed down to her by the great mages of her kingdom. An artifact forged in the magical energys of the planet, by her God, Necronos himself. The artifact that she bears allows the power of her gods most honoured and exalted daemon to be woven into the very essence of her being. Her daemon is the fire daemon Belekor. The daemon fuses itself with her body creating an impenetrable exoskeleton sheilded by magic. The deamon also grants her endless magical power wich she uses to manipulate fire and lava.
There are three of these exalted daemons which Necronos allows his most chosen Reincarnated Mage's to control. Created from Fire, Ice, and Earth and bound by the planets magical energy. Each Daemon grants it's user a tremendous amount of magical energy to manipulate at there will, so long as they bear one of the three great artifacts that bind the demons to them.
It is because of Necrono's Exalted Daemons being forged out of different magical energy's, that there has always been dispute between Invisigoth clans. Argument as to how powerful and efficient each daemon really is in battle. Mages divided in these clans choose only one of three sources of magic to try and prove themself to Necronos and therefore be granted eternal life as a reincarnated champion in his army.
Leonora herself has served Necronos to her death in battle. She has therefore been reincarnated and granted eternal life as long as she weilds the power of her artifact wisely, and is never overpowerd in battle. Which will be punished by eternal torture. Three battle mages are constantly put in charge of the artifacts and this controls the balance that each energy has on the planets magical forces. The magical energy's have direct effects on the Invisigoth's.
If a mage were to fall in battle the magical forces of Necronym would be siverely disturbed. The planet would be consumed by chaos as war would break out between the clans. It is said that an Invoker/Mage of the Invisigoths, weilder of one of the artifacts, has never fallen or been overpowered in battle, the only way to stop a Necronos Invoker is to detroy their artifact with pure magical force, force so immense it would literally destroy a planet. Most races who fear the Invisigoths believe more cunning means are neccesary when trying to destroy an artifact user, means that would force them to lose their faith in Necronos.
Her body armour is basically going to be the daemon if you can imagine a person clinging onto your back the arms and hands of the daemon will form her cuirass. A portion of her is also going to be made up of fire i was thinking maybe flame could bind a big undead chunk of her leg together or something to that effect. Her artifact is either going to be infused into a staff or worn as a necklace or peice of jewellery. For the pedastill Leonora is going to stand on a tongue half wrapped around her leg coming out of an evil, lava filled, toothy mouth.
