This is a further continuation in my explorations into the endeavors of mental warfare and nightmares, thus the inspirations for their appearance. I still instill the idea that Aphrosteria is currently genderless, though they may resemble a female, in physical attributes, whether or not they ascertain a gender, only time will tell. Now, Aphrosteria definitely has a background story to ''her'', still in progress, with expanding ideas coming forever more. Though basically, Aphosteria has a past, which is a mystery at this current point in time, possibly a forgotten past. She's calm, patient, wise, and very manipulative. Due to her past, Aphrosteria is emotionless, but has a small voodoo like doll that's alive, that follows her. This doll is essentially a representation
( emotionally ) of what she was before her past. It carries Aphrosteria's emotion on behalf of her, and as such is very much the opposite of Aphrosteria. It is also a lot younger, and so acts child like, and innocent, but it anything but. Though wise and secrets it may keep, it is like a friend and mentor as such to Aphrosteria, the closest connection she has to her once self.
Aphrosteria is very much ethereal, haunted by herself and her past. Due to her psychotic, traumatic childhood, she has become mentally unstable and unsafe within the mind and in nature, due to this she has become immensely powerful, though with the only motive of revenge and havoc on her mind, almost every part of her has been locked away within the doll, recreating her as a new person entirely, with memories that she feels as if don't belong to her,and the doll acts as guidance. Aphrosteria gets the doll to collect souls from everything that confronts them, once they have defeated it.
I've acted off of your ideas, Michelle. And i have to say.. a lot of your ideas i was also thinking of myself ! ;] Now don't worry too much is she has a lot of things you aren't happy or sure about, they can all be fixed :]
I've tried my best to do my visual representation of your armor nailed into the body, instead of nailing it in though, I've used stitches. Her skin is a lot paler and more neutral than the original, as she is an Oracle. I've also taken firm grasp of your arms not being in use, as a substitute, i chained her arms to a wooden like plank, very much to how people used to have their heads stuck in them, before a beheading, or just kept as prisoner, though her head has obviously been freed. I'd very much like to further discuss the story of Eclipse, as so i can work on the story of this Oracle more thoroughly, i tend to design better, when i know its story as if it were me.
The first two images are my intended pieces for now, the last two are just some concepts i came up with, a parody so to speak, a dark Oracle.
Now as then, to simple truth,
Sweetest tongue has sharpest tooth,
Interested in the history of Aphrosteria?
