Bio: Aethril, or Lady Star-Born as she is more oft reffered to by, is a warrior of great prowess and renown despite her origins being largely unknown.
Of course this does little to stop the ideas others, nor the spread stories that come from them.
Of the most popular is that she is quite literally a child from the heavens. The God of the night sky birthing her from a star that had fallen to their planet, and gifted her a portion of it’s power so she could be it’s vassal, and act as it’s warrior where it could not.
Suprisingly enough this story is actually the closest to her true origins.
While she does have some relation to the ‘sunless’ God, and even carries a portion of the stars’ power, she did not need to be born by either to have what was already, or at least once was hers.
Aethril is, or at least was once the Goddess of the stars herself before she had to descend into mortality with the fellow gods of her generation.
Once a goddess, now merely a mortal warrior… Though she still retains her original abilities, as decreased as they have been, has the capability to wield heavenly energy, and is technically also still a divine, if mortal, being.
Nowadays Aethril spends her time keeping acquainted with her fellow descended Gods, promoting peace (or at least as close an equivalent as their fantasy-esque world has), solving conflicts where she finds them/ and wandering the world in search of the adventures she could never have as one of her world’s deities.
As one might note (at least from those who know my older work) Aethril is honestly one of my best Mocs in build and detail work to date… Though far too much of her is pressure based.
In particular are her skirt(?I mean, yes, it is supposed to be based off of actual armour plating, but idk what exactly you’d call that)) details!
The majority of which is rather loose, and/or held in place due to the positioning of other pieces… Yet still manages to pull off a surprisingly stable build despite that.
I have to thank @Connor_Hoffman (who I must now also apologize to for @ing him on two different websites now) for this development in my moccing skill. I found myself inspired after looking back through his work and being reminded of just how awesome all his Mocs were!
For anyone who hasn’t yet you should check out his channel. His advice and how-to’s are beyond helpful!
Oh! Also, here’s a couple of extra pics to show off the weird construction I had to throw together to fit her ‘armour’ pieces on.
