Commission sketch concept done by *Valkyrie-Girl.
This is my non-MLP related story idea that I'm writing up, based roughly on the concept of the 'Lords of Midnight' game. The story is centered around Lord Sovereign Celeste and her quest to recruit the various Lords of the Free Kingdoms - legendary heroes who each possess a magical weapon or artifact as symbol of their office and position.
The story is mainly told in 'animal form' (for ease of illustration), but shifts to human form when fighting/combat occurs. All the characters transform for these sequences (though the characters themselves of any change, as it's meant as a more stylistic narrative device).
Illustrated above is the brother of the main heroine of my comic story I'm developing, Lord Sovereign Solaris. He holds the position of Lord Sovereign (the only other person being his little sister) and lives in the Crystal Spire - heart of the Old World. A legendary leader and fighter, he commands the Army of the Crystal Spire and seeks a proactive response to the rising threat of the Dreadlord.
Name: Lord Sovereign Solaris
Domain: The Inner Kingdoms - The Crystal Spire
Legendary Artifact: The Cosmos Blade (Greatsword)
Animal Race and Class: Heroic Unicorn Knight
