I'm looking to get a picture done of my favorite characters from each entry of the Souls series all sitting around a bonfire. (yes even the Yahrnam Hunter, he was invited. lol)
That being said if you are unfamiliar with the Souls series of games please do not bother, I need someone that knows the style at least enough to know who Miyazaki is. Its a certain style/vibe that you have to have experienced to understand.
Sorry to anyone that doesn't! Go look them up they are amazing games!
Now this is all gonna be pretty lengthy so bear with me, all these details are very important to me.
So now moving on,
I have 1 build/character (i tend to go for fashion souls over stats) on each of the Souls games, as well as Bloodborne, that I always think of when I think about the fun times i've had in the games. So 4 characters total, Demon's Souls, Dark Souls, Dark Souls 2, and Bloodborne. Each one having a sort of back story I've given them over the time I played with them. So with Dark Souls 3 on its way in just a few short months I want something to commemorate these characters as this will be the last Souls game that From will be making for a long time.
Each character I will provide pictures for as well as details of their Role-play to give ideas on how to put them in the group.
Items with "(Primary)" are their main weapons and should be the focus. But some secondary weapons are small enough that they could be shown as well.
This character I have no pictures for but can provide pictures of the armor and weapons she used. This was my first real "rogue" character and she used dual blades (Kris Blade &Blind) and used a bow (White Bow) as well as a small shield (heater shield)
So heres a break down.
Hair: longer red hair in a pony tail
Eyes: light blue
Skin: sunkissed, slightly tanned
Physique: thin, almost too thin. flatish chest (just how the models look in game)
Right hand 1 - Kris Blade
Right hand 2 - White Bow (primary)
Left hand 1 - Blind (primary)
Left hand 2 - Heater Shield
Head - Assassin's Mask
Body - Black Leather
Arms - Binded Gloves
Legs - Binded Boots
This character plays super careful and waited for the right time to parry, or sneak up for a back stab. Also would gauge weather or not ranged attacks are a better option. She was scared of other people as well and would run from invaders. (This was back when I would contemplate quitting out of the game if I got invaded lol)
Any questions feel free to ask.
Dark Souls 1
Even still one of my favorite characters to play as. I do have pictures of this character as well as video of him in action (I still use him on stream) He what I called a "Dark Crystal Paladin." A holy man gripped with a curse which drove him mad. Now the gods take pity on his weak body and chance him the power to heal wounds on his quest to rid himself of the curse. But his sight is hazed by the crystal that slowly encases his body and cloud his mind.
Hair: Light Grey (hes a bit older, late 50s early 60s)
Skin: Pale, almost ghost like
Physique: Average. has muscle but being undead has taken its toll
Right hand 1 - Server (Primary)
Right hand 2 - Silver Knight Strait Sword/Dark Hand
Left hand 1 - Sanctus (Primary)
Left hand 2 - Canvas talisman/pyromancy glove
Head - Crystalline Mask
Body - Paladin Armor
Arms - Gauntlets of the Vanquisher (both arms are decorated differently)
Legs - Crystalline Leggings
With this character I switch between having the Straitsword and Dark Hand as Dark Hand does a grab which drains the life of those it grabs.
For his darker side he uses the pyromancy glove with the pyromancy called "Power Within" which eats away his HP but gives him a huge damage increase.
For his lighter side he uses the miracle called "Replinishment" which heals him for 10HP per second. This stacks with his primaries. The shield Sanctus heals 2HP per second and Server heals him every time it hits an enemy.
Dark Souls 2
A much simpler character than the rest, to a degree. He is a simple hunter of those who invade and pillage the weak. using only a katana and a buckler shield he takes down the most enemies. Stopping only to infuse his blade with fire for those that need a little extra cracking open.
Now for the "to a degree" part.
While he mains this set up, he has in his possession two large weapons. Twin Smelter Demon Swords. He uses these on those who would dare disrespect his honor by interrupting his hunts or disrespecting him in a duel. One parry and large explosion later, and they find his obsession with fire.
Skin: White. Not pale but not tanned. just a light tone. He also had a tattoo on his forhead. (will provide pictures)
Physique: Average, built. gotta be with those huge swords!
Right hand 1: Blacksteel Katana (primary)
Right hand 2: Smelter Sword
Right hand 3: Pyromancy glove
Left hand 1: Buckler (primary)
Left hand 2: Smelter Sword
Left hand 3: Pyromancy glove
Head - Thief Mask
Body - Royal Soldier Armor
Arms - Havel's Gauntlets
Legs - Drangleic Leggings
Basically the way this guy works is he only ever two hands the Blacksteel Katana. If I fight someone who is hacking, healing in a duel, or being a clear scum bag, I use the buckler to parry them. Thanks to this games RIDICULOUS parry animation taking a week and a half to knock the target down, I have enough time to pull out both Smelter Swords, power stance them, then L2 special attack them before they can get up again. This has dealt anywhere from 600 to 1500 damage depending on the targets armor. Then I have a pyromancy glove in the left hand to buff the katana with fire. The pyromancy glove on the right hand is for the fashion. At the end of each fight i switch to both pyro gloves and cast "immolation" which lights my character on fire. Then he walks slowly away from the target. So edgy he gave the world a paper cut.
So yeah, he will look simple with his katana on his waist and buckler on his back. maybe holding the flame in his hand looking at it. but hidden away are those pillars of fire waiting for the next victim.
The last one. And by far the most simple.
This guy is named Royce Voidwalker. And he has succumb to his beasthood. He uses the Beast Claws weapon and has the Beast Rune active so he is actually a beast. Only retaining the memories that he was once a hunter and had a promise to fulfill. He still uses his trusted Saw Cleaver as well but cannot operate his gun anymore with the large deformed hand he now has.
Hair: grey, most of his body is covered in it
Skin: grey as well, the beast form is a dreary colored one
Physique: very thin, ribs showing through skin
Right hand 1: Beast Claws (primary)
Right hand 2: Saw Cleaver
Head - none
Body - none
Arms - none
Legs - Harrowed Trousers
This guy will be near the bonfire, but maybe off to the side a bit as fire is a natural fear that comes with being a beast.
Thanks for reading through all this I know its a lot, but I want the characters to BE. Not just drawn all in together. They are all characters. Each with their own personal agendas. Sitting staring at a bonfire isnt how i want this picture. I'd like to see imaginations spring to life and create this little pocket of solitude for those hunters and undead who just need a good long rest, or more than likely bicker lol
Pyro would have a problem with the Rogue as she is a thief and runs from fights.
Royce would have issues with the fire in the middle of the black room that produces light but not much heat as far as he can feel.
Paladin would take issue with Rogue trying to take one of his crystals as well as the free lance attitude of the Pyro.
Rogue would be uneasy about the Beast skulking just out the little circle.
As some examples.
Price should be discussed after we figure out exactly what will be entailed with this picture. I don't want to spend some tripe digit number on a single picture though. If it comes down to it we may even decide on doing a separate picture for each of them, which i'd be willing to pay more for.
Pictures will be provided upon request
