Character Creation Contest #53

The Concept:

You must create a character based on the theme of DICHOTOMY or two opposites. For example, fire and water, and I shall leave the rest to your sterling efforts. They can be as righteous and good or as devious and evil as you please, their allignment matters not. As you may know I love a well worked back story/concept so let your minds run wild. I bid you a happy artist show-off. Salutations.

Deadline:

  • Friday, May 11th, 2012
  • 5:00pm GMT. (Or 1700 for you 24 hour inclined folk)

I hope I've done this correctly.

Really interesting idea, so it a kinda character that embodies a ying yang aspect of polar opposites. So a character like Oya would she be an example of this? :P

@Blizaga101: Actually yes, I completely forgot about her. Many thanks for succeeding where I did not, by presenting a better example, instead of just my ramblings to go by.

Very nice idea. I'm thinking along the lines of Two-face, would that be acceptable?

@PoachedPig: I would happily extend it, if there is such a demand to do so.

@Mad_Wolverine: But of course. For mine I'm loosely drawing inspiration from the Inbetweener's and Jack of Heart's appearances.

I think I've done this right. 
I went with Health and Disease.

Well... i'm a bad drawer but some time ago, i was thinking about a very sinister heroine... I called Blind Scale (but she wasn´t blind).... About the abilities: Hear this: She was "cursed" by two goddess: Temis (goddess of justice) and Nemesis (goddess of Vengeance) for a sick beat. So, for one hand, she is capable to manifest any kind of power to make the justice prevail (for example, if someone hire an assassin to kill someone, she could gain invulnerability and super speed to stop the bullet) but, if someone claims retribution for any kind of damage or she couldn't make prevail justice, grows in her the imperative compulsion to payback (in the same example, if can't stop the bullet and this person dies, she must find the assassin and kill it by any necessary mean and that includes, gain powers if need to). Bad, right? but the real bad joke was that she can't always decide when to apply either... That's why i called Blind Scale... What d u think?

Representing justice, carries an indestructible sword and in vengeance's side, she posses two enchanted bracelets which can made spells (in addition to the abilities i describe before... I hope u can enjoy it!!!

Name:
  • Pi 'Intal Raal
Age:
  • Young Adult
Ability:
  • The Mystic Blacksmith (became Pi's tattoo after Bathala Maria gave it to him), a powerful force that can perform destruction and creation. It can destroy any material or element that Pi holds, absorbs and then creates a random weapon out of that material. (i.e. Metal >> Metal Sword or Wood >> Wooden Bow and Arrow)
Story:
  • Pi 'Intal is a Pintado warrior in an island east of the Pacific. For generations, the Pintado Warriors were appointed to guard Mount Makiling, home of a powerful Bathala (a god). But during the Mystic War, they were ambushed by their enemy, the Shamans, to retrieve a mysterious magic from the Bathala. The Pintado Warriors were defeated. When Pi searched the forest, he found a beautiful maiden weak and dying. It was revealed that she was the Bathala living in the mountain, Bathala Maria of Makiling. The Bathala gave the young warrior the magic that the Shamans were seeking and told him to guard it with his life then she vanished. Thereafter, Pi received the power of The Mystic Blacksmith and the great responsibility that he never imagined.

I apologize, I am not really good at telling stories.

I have a bunch of ideas for this character but then after a while, I got bored and realized I don't like it. Oh well, its too late to change it now... >_<

The Empyreal

It can be said that equilibrium is governed by those more evolved entities than we mere mortals. As 'tis written in scripture where thine doth truth lie, that one sought symmetry amidst the chaos of a universe is balance. One such notion was to balance that which becomes light and dark. Whatever iteration of light and dark that exists was to be held in check for all time. These so-called gods, which longed for order, conjured many opposite forms and, similarly to the mythological Chinese deity Pangu (holding Yin and Yang together), cosmically squeezed their respective, contrasting heralds together, producing singular forms occupied by two minds. Spectral opposites, these minds could balance what was required. The Cabal member responsible for the parity of light and dark was christened The Empyreal. He can, and will, maintain what he was charged to through nigh omnipotent means.

@LordRequiem: very cool name and description and great visual to match.

I've been trying to come up with something but it's been slow to develop, this provides great inspiration :)

I must say I'm enjoying the opposites people are coming up with here.

Heres my entry

2335959-soundbite_001.jpg
2335960-soundbite.jpg

Soundbite/ Hanin Budra is an Arabic mutant who is capable of manipulating sound and certain frequencies for her own use. At a young age she was drafted into a black ops programme for the military and worked on covert mission and assassinations. What made her so adept at this mission was her ability to completely mask her presence as if she was never there. She can generate a frequency that can manipulate the minds of those who "hear" his frequency. It douses her presence, masks her sound. She becomes 100% stealthy. Although she is best known for her infiltration abilities she also has a destructive ability. Any noise or sound she hears she can amplify it into explosive force and manipulate the force of these sound waves.

Hanin’s abilities are blocked into both half of her brain and are unable to perform both at the same time. She uses her stealth ability (purple) from her right side and destructive (orange) from her left.

My character is based around the opposites of Noise and Silence.

I decided once again to tap my webcomic background and make something with a humorous tone. I have created: WARHIPPIE. Or at least that's what I started with. And eventually he became Waterfall Fury: Agent of G.R.A.S.S. I actually had the Anagram worked out but I forgot what the last two letters stood for so probably better to leave it to the imagination. He's a hippy/soldier and is constantly at war with his own nature and training. Or he gets baked and then is constantly at war with the munchies.
