The fastest hero in the history of ever! *
Jasmine is a new Hero who was put into experimental development after a strange attack on Makuhero University, in which strange, fully biological creatures attacked the campus and teleported away after they were defeated.
After the attack, the build team at the Hero Factory spent several years studying the readings and trying to figure out how to create a hero able to do the same thing.
The result of their efforts is Sylph. Able to leap, fly and teleport short distances using her enhanced Quaza matrix, Sylph is technically not the fastest hero in the galaxy, but she's always the first to the finish line!
Sylph is equipped with lightweight ablative armour, jet boots, stabilising fins and wrist-mounted ice blasters to freeze a fleeing villain in their tracks!
Assigned to Delta Team alongside the railbow-toting Tomas Bolt and techspert Klaus Vesper, Sylph has one of the highest capture rates of any hero!
A MOC made for the Hero Factory: Gear Up! contest in 2012 hosted by [Chro] and ADDRo. The rules were to build a hero with a custom torso for one of three themes not used in HF before the contest, with one of three primary colours never used by HF. Sylph's theme was "speed". Her colour was "medium blue".
Jasmine Sylph 2.0 AKA Hero Factory: Animated
I felt I liked the character despite only having the bare bones of a HF storyline, and revamped her last spring with a more "Saturday morning cartoon" sort of style. I was building in a new style outside my normal comfort zone, but I think it worked well and hit what I was looking to acheive with a HF MOC. The first always felt too messy to me, despite being MUCH more popular.
So the aim here was to create a smaller, "cuter", simpler and more stylised MOC with better colour blocking.
She got drawn by OhLookIt'sAnArtist a while back too!
DA has my birthday wrong, but it was a much appreciated gift nontheless.
