Sacrifice

(Evangeline M'Baré)

A young super-heroine from Wakanda, with budding mutant magic. She was a Player Character in an early 1990s MSH campaign, because I like being 25 years early to the party. As of April of 2021, this profile has received Panther-blessed portraits.

Warden Commander Genevieve


Genevieve, Commander of the Grey, is one of the main characters in the Dragon Age prequel novel The Calling, by David Gaider. Formidable but harrowed fighter with a big-arse sword, nerves of steel and a unhealthy intensity. As of April of 2021, added photorealistic portraits. Since her team now has those, and I don't know how long the creation tool will...

Nika the Chain

(Sample Diablo II Assassin)

A writeup of the Assassin character class in Diablo II, information about assassins in this game world, and an example of possible background and characterization to flesh out the archetype. As of April of 2021 I added a photorealistic custom character model because heh, why not.

The Amazing and Stunning Shivangi and her Faithful Companion the Cunning Subarna


A creatively fleshed-out example of a Vanquisher character in the first Torchlight video game. She's an itinerant carnie and sharpshooter with a pet lynx. Both have magical powers. As of April of 2021 I've whipped up a photorealistic custom character model for Shivangi. Thus ending years of frustration about never managing to make a good illustration of the character concept.

Rayya Manticora


An example of a fully-fleshed out necromancer in the Guild Wars 2 setting. If you need an atypical, benign necro who likes rabbits (and magical action princess outfits), well it's just the occasion you've been waiting for.

Claw the Unconquered

(Valcan of Pytharia) (Part 1)

A rather big and muscled profile for a barbarian warrior of the same ilk, who's appeared in his own series and beyond over the decades. This is one of our DC Implosion writeups. As of December of 2020, this enormous entry was split into manageable parts. And received a round of rewriting, since it was rather old.

Delphyne Gorgon


A young and redoubtable Amazon and Gorgon officer. She's cool, in more ways than one. Delphyne primarily appeared in Marvel's Hercules and Amadeus Cho stories. And yes, she looks awesome.

Lastikman

(Movie version)

The version of the Filipino super-hero Lastikman seen in the 2004 movie take. As of August of 2020, the game stats and discussion about the traditional version of Lastikman have been restored. They had been lost for far too long due to a stupid cut-and-paste mistake.

Kailane the Culler

(and the Sword Goddess)

A fully fleshed-out sample heroic/dark fantasy character, based on a weird Path of Exile build. A burning intelligent sword that kills her wielders, darting acrobatics based on a magical proximity sense, a feral huntress with a pet canary, these sorts of things.

Ritual


Another example of a fully-fleshed out Player Character from a video game. This time a female Barbarian Shaman from the seminal Everquest MMO. Predictably, this also presents setting elements such as the Northmen, the Tribunal, Halas, the epic weapon quest for that class, etc..

Dynaheir


One of the core companions from the canon adventuring party in the original Baldur's Gate D&D video game. Lawful Good Human witch from Rashemen. As with all our Baldur's Gate profiles, there's plenty of explanations about the context, cultures, history, etc. relevant to the character.

Tigra the were-woman

(Greer Nelson profile #2)

Our second profile for Marvel Comics heroine Greer Nelson, depicting her early days as Tigra. During those she was a bit different than in later depictions. As of December of 2019 the illustrations were redone in HD. The text also had its fur brushed, though it was reading better than I remembered.
