Ksenia Venom


A sample character from the Torchlight II video game, using a magical glaive throwing weapon and other strange techniques. As of July, 2017 this profile has been overhauled and received tail-wagging M&M stats that love to play fetch.

Nagi the lancer


Nagi the lancer, a polearms (esp. naginata) expert from the Recettear video game. Also, very lost.
DCH players might note that the Recettear writeups often come with interesting little construct to simulate JRPG character powers (though Nagi may not be the best example, I'll admit. ANYWAY.)
Also her eyes are colour-coordinated with our site, so we appreciate that.
