((WARNING: Autoplaying Song))
My character for the BRC Bara Magna storyline. For one, I think, I managed to find a design that doesn't suck!
About this creation
Telzira has lived much of her life as a Skrall Sister in the Black Spike Monastery.
She was engaged to be married to Zenius, one of Tuma's best warriors. Zenius, oddly for an arranged marriage, actually fell in love, she attracted to his honesty and support, and him to her adventurous spirit and an urge to look after her.
Zenius died in front of Telzira's eyes, stabbed by a baterra blade. She was never the same again.
Following a huge conflict with her Mother, the Matriarch, Telzira half fled half rebelled against her and struck out for a new life in Bara Magna...
Her adventures in Bara Magna were long and arduous. She feels responsible for too many deaths, has seen too much bloodshed, and was ready to settle down. Her lover, Rames, found her a place to live near his own home in Vulcanus. The Skrall Ronin and his half-sister Kira settled there as well, and for five years they lived an almost normal life.
Telzira's wings come from a rather disastrous accident. The Vampirik Surt attacked Telzira, using his powers to drain her of life. Thankfully, Fenrir and Drachen were able to save her. Drachen used his most devastating power on the area, draining all shadow from anyone there. Telzira was freed from Surt's evil spirit, and Surt himself was purified and made good.
Unfortunately, the ritual went awry. Surt's wings and body kaitaed with Telzira's, which led to her having wings, and him being left without a body, which is why he now occupies this set of armour.
Drachen died, his body solidifying into pure protodermis.
The Vampirik buried him, and in his honour Fenrir and Surt formed their village on the site of his palace.
Back in Vulcanus, Telzira followed her dream, and became an arena fighter. Her wings and powers give her a huge advantage over pedestrian Glatorian, and she is usually pitched against vehicles, or multiple combatants. Regulations disallow a lot of her powers, as they do for Ronin and Rames as well.
She is tall, but also gangly, and looks almost anorexic in build. She cannot boast the impressive figure of Kira - but then, her power does not lie in strength. No other Glatorian can boast the ability to throw another glatorian out of the arena without touching them. Telzire keeps her powers in practice, and is a lot better than she was when she first left the monastery.
Rames and Telzira became very close when they lived together in Vulcanus. Rames was saving enough money for the both of them to have a grand house in a beautiful place Rames had his heart set on.
The two never got... intimate. This is pretty much due to the fact that Rames is too nervous, and Telzira was never educated in... these things. The Skrall Monastery has no menfolk, and so the girls are never taught about them.
Even when Telzira was engaged to be married to Zenius, she didn't know about... that sort of thing.
Her best friend, Kira, is always there when she's feeling down. The two get along very well, being the only girls they can talk to, the only other being the ancient Mira. There are some things you just can't talk about with boys nearby.
After the attack at the Vampirik Village, Telzira disappeared without trace. Rames' grief is high.
...If only he knew what was going on...
--Fouth Wall Commentary:
The last few build for Telzira were pretty bad, in all honesty. Well, I hope I fixed that here. I added lots of black hair ((hair?)) and a hood as well as as the veil, to give her a sort of bedraggled look. Her skirt is torn - what do you expect for someone who's just been through a huge battle? This is her at her latest in the story - right after a huge fight.
As for what happens next... Telzira is leaving the BRC, for now. I'm thinking of writing her story up seperately, with the main part taking place up at the monastery where the Matriarch has captured her, and then also a series of flashbacks about her old life, gradually getting rid of the mysteries surrounding her to the readers. It'll take a while and have several chapters if I go through with it. If not, she'll jsut turn up randomly in the BRC again.
The song is meant to be between Rames and Telzira. They're both pretty emo. And no, that's not an insult. I'm emo too :P An emo with little plastic bricks...
Wing design shamelessly pulled of Surt, since in the story they have the same wings anyway. I replaced the tops with mahri daggers, because of the way they connect.
Oh, and her weapon actually comes from an Alpha Team set. The hood is Darth Vader's cape, and her feet are the feet from this set here.

Quoting Gringat the Repugnant
Look at this pic: http://www.mocpages.com/image_zoom.php?mocid=172190&id=/user_images/11538/12608076807 Kira and the late Telzira MOC have the only two technic dresses I've ever come up with. I've been toying with the idea of making one with the King Matthias cloak whn I get the oppertunity, or the Darth Vader one, and also to make with minifig cloaks should I ever get more than just one. Your best bet would be to make your own cloak/skirt/whatever out of an old shirt or something. Something else to consider is a sort of greek-stlye platemail skirt made from Skopio treads if you have that set. I don't :( --On another note, I built Kore., and I'm really happy with him ^^ And Crawling, by Linkin' Park, fits him well - especially when it meantions "Wounds that will never heal".
Well actually I ment out of tiles and bricks. And about Kore, I cant wait to see him.
Oh man, I was about to use that skirt for my remake of Antroz... Too bad, I wwaited too long. About the MOC: splendid. Sleek and lethal-looking, with a solid story behind it. It looks like everyone is starting to outbuild me :'(
