Here's the bio sheet for Vex. I had more fun than I thought I would here. Also, really wanted to finally cut Harriet a break.

Sounds like he would get on very well with Sickle as they both mess around with other beings.

I feel that Vex would view pie-pranks as too simple for his liking. Plus, he greatly outclasses Sickle in strength.

I'm just waiting for some cocky infernal or evil-doer to do that and Sickle to become a hero by taking them out. :lol:

Decided to make Halphas' weapons.
Halphas' Swords.png
Halphas' Swords.png (177.87 KiB) Viewed 1273 times
Estoc- basic long sword
Heartfelt Needle- once belonged to a mortal who vowed to smite Halphas. Said hero failed.
Primal Blade- A heavy mass of flint from a bygone era. Halphas can wield it as easily as any of his other light blades.
Portable Plasma Cutter- A highly experimental piece of equipment, retrofitted as a blade. Halphas wasn't fond of how it handled, though.
Zweihander- A massive two-handed sword. Halphas is capable of wielding it with one.
Bone Katana- Made out of the mortal remains of one who tried to kill Halphas to get out of his contract with him.
Blade of the Morning Star- Lucifer's personal Heavenly sword, now owned by Halphas.

So yeah, he can wield weapons that typically require both hands with just one, and there's a number of weapons that require that. Crazy thing is, the fencing style he wield? Also applies to those heavy weapons. As for those individuals he killed, really they struck first. Halphas has a rule of not striking out unless he has reason to, especially in regards to mortals.

Who knew that Halphas was somewhat of a noble demon then? He doesn't go around killing mortals first or act like an ax-murder and only kills to defend himself. Wonder if those he killed ended up in Heaven or Hell?

The guy who wielded Heartfelt Needle I can safely say is in Heaven. Noble yet pointless death, considering how Halphas is.

The guy who betrayed Halphas, not at all that lucky. Let me explain how I've been pondering how Halphas worked.

When an Infernal writes out a contract, the most common stipulation is that the mortal's soul would then belong to the Infernal. Soul-binding is a forbidden thing to do, unless the one signing is made fully aware of this stipulation and understands what it means. Heaven wants this to be absolutely clear, with no clever word-play allowed to get around this. Basically, you won't get away with tricking a mortal into giving their soul away. Heaven WILL get involved if this stipulation isn't met. It's surprising how many mortals feel that their eternal afterlife is worth whatever they're signing it away for.

Halphas was already considered very lenient in how his contracts were made. He'll provide weaponry and ammunition to whoever wants it, and his contracts carry that same stipulation, with a bit of a twist. Unlike most other Infernals, Halphas' contracts are temporary. He'll only provide aid for a certain period of time, decided upon before signing. Therefore, his "escape clause" is if the individual signing the contract lives past the expiration point agreed upon, then they're released from the soul binding as well. However, if they're killed, usually for any reason, during the time that the contract is active, only then would their soul belong to Halphas.

That second guy was someone who had second-thoughts much too late, and did perhaps the stupidest thing you could do to get out of a demonic contract.

It should be said, since Macabre has turned his allegiance to the Celestial Order, he's done away with this stipulation in his contracts entirely. Not like he makes them often, anyway.

I really should consolidate all of this info eventually.

We already had one "infernal contract" in Housepets, although Keene didn't sell his soul to the li'l dino-demon. Might not be the last, either......

Figured might as well show this. I'm not pleased with the end result. Intended to be visual representations of a mortal soul and a fragmented soul. Not drawn to scale.

Another event that could prevent a soul from going into a possible afterlife is "soul shattering." Such an event is surprisingly rare, since it relies on a highly specific set of circumstances that will always vary. Primary common denominator is a mortal foolishly handling magic(k) that is beyond their control. Normally this simply leads to death for them. However, as mentioned, sometimes instead their soul will shatter. In a manner of speaking, their soul is "fragmented," while the largest "core" piece would then reform in some way. Some of these "earth-bound" fragment cores would then become "haunts." They will keep their memories of their former lives and their original personalities, yet will then exhibit actions that are related to whatever spell they were initially attempting to do. While fragmented, they are denied full entry into any afterlife until their fragments come back together. Such an event is always only a matter of time, as the fragments are naturally drawn back to their core.

This is what happened to Harriet.

The idea to make Harriet a Shattered Soul has been in my mind almost since I decided to change her from a Celestial to a mortal. So an exceedingly long time before I motivated myself to make this clear.

For now, made a new morpher! The Blazing Phoenix coin, used by the Street Fighter character, Chun Li, for the Street Fighter/Power Rangers: Legacy wars promotion. That now makes the two current Street Fighter rangers. I plan on making another for Lord Drakkon, the evil Tommy Oliver from the Power Rangers comic series.

Thanks! Took a while to figure out the lines. A lot more curves than the Ryu Ranger coin. In all honesty, I'm hoping once I have a solid source of income again, to get replicas of these coins. Already found a cosplay shop that makes these.

Alright, got Lord Drakkon's morpher, the evil version of Tommy Oliver who fused the Dragonzord power with the incomplete Tigerzord power and used it to conquer the realms.

Thanks. I'm not sure I'll do other Power Coins, they're a lot more intricate.

Also, I'm taking questions directed towards my characters. I just need something to draw, and feel that this could be a fun way to flesh out some of them. Send them via PM. And please try to specify who the question is for.

Been a while. I drew this on a Mother's Day card. I had rabbits on my mind given there was a den in my backyard.
Sadly, at least 2 of the 5 babies died, but it looks like the others made it and have moved on.

We had a house broken rabbit for several years. Real sweet creature. One of my in-laws came for a visit and brought his German Shepherd, a big hulking old girl. We introduced them and they got along very nicely all week. Like you said, Nature's funny.

Nope. The second question was "How would they react if the shampoo they used made all their fur fall out, as a prank?" Felt it wouldn't work.

See, there's a reason why I ask which characters they are directing their questions to. It makes it exponentially easier on me regarding getting an answer that is in-character for someone. I have too many characters to sift through for these kinds of questions.

Made this the other day. I was looking through Chaoko's initial sketches of Mirage, and decided to try to draw this one pose. Definitely tricky to study how the limbs connected with this pose, but came out really good.

Got bored the other day so I finally decided to show what went into Oliver's amulet. Even gave it a name. Though I do understand that the name is both archaic and not even used properly, but I wanted a name that would hint at the fact that it's made from materials from two completely opposite realms and belongs to someone of mixed ancestry.

Other than the fact that it can be detected as both an Infernal and Celestial artifact, it has no "power" at all. It's merely cosmetic.
