More people are now probably stumbling onto my page due to the commissions I have, rather than my actual photography. I thought it would be a good idea to put all the information I have on my original character in one place.
This is also where I'm going to show the wonderful artists I've worked with and the results
I hope you enjoy looking around their galleries, they're awesome people
Armineh stands around 170cm tall, her body type is curvy but healthy, she does a lot of physical work. She holds herself high and walks carefully, she moves more like a predator than a dancer. Her hair is long (reaching her hips), wavy, and snow white, it was originally red but weak pigmentation meant it turned white in her mid 20's.
Her face is long and oval. She has almond shaped eyes that are two shades of blue. In the centre they're a bright shade - almost electric blue and then a darker shade circling around the iris, they glow slightly due to her biotics. Her skin is pale and heavily freckled and scarred, she has cybernetics beneath the skin that sometimes show in tiny gaps in the skin on her face. These gaps are seen in the corner of her eyes where she has little crowfeet wrinkles, along her cheekbones and the edge of her jaw.
Her nose is long and straight, in profile one can see it dips ever so slightly due to her Indian heritage. Her lips are full and well shaped, tilting up slightly in a sort-of smile, though her expression is normally neutral or haughty.
As a basis for Armineh's face, I recommend people look at ~Sssssergiu
's work, in particular this one
. It is pretty much how I imagine her to look, except Armineh has a longer face, white hair and bright blue eyes
Among her scars is a small slit across the left side of her lip, a large gash along the left side of her torso that circles from the front right to the back and a missing left ring finger.
She has henna-styled tattoos in blue ink on her palms. This is how they should look (in blue) [link]
Armineh is normally found either in neutral clothing/armour for work or high asari fashion for when she's not at work. You can see the various fashions below
I use Armineh in the Mass Effect RP at the moment, so that's how I'll write her biog.
The circumstances are important for this, the asari are a monogendered race capable of living up to 1000 years (read about them here! [link]
). One in particular called Assina was a great traveller and greatly ambitious. She stumbled across the human race around the 1700's and instead of notifying the council of them, she started to study them to use for her own means. As humans weren't known to the galactic community, she believed she could mould one into a perfect assassin to do her dirty work - if you don't know the species who is leaving the DNA, the trail can go cold easily.
So she set to work, orchestrating various slavers to kidnap people for experiments until she got a blueprint of desired genetic traits (as well as some asari ones like a longer lifespan) and set up a major accident to occur with an element called 'element zero', exposing hundreds of pregnant mothers with this substance and thus ensuring the children that did survive it, would become biotics.
Armineh was one of the small few to survive without any horrific side effects. She was born in 1979 to a mixed race couple, her father was of norse descent, her mother Indian. She divided her time between England and India with her parents and basically spent most of her time procrastinating, training in martial arts but drifting through life with no real purpose.
As Assina's subjects failed for one reason or another, Armineh eventually became the last test subject available and was kidnapped around her 30th birthday.
The genetic modifications and training continued for the next 20 years. The whole experience was traumatising but Armineh seemed to adjust surprisingly easily. Forced into melding her mind with Assina and her various underlings, she gained an undying hatred for the asari and a love for killing, along with the needed skills to survive in a galaxy full of aliens.
Armineh hated Assina but recognised the practical elements of their working relationship and continued with it until humanity could enter the galactic stage on their own. This eventually happened in the 2150's and Armineh began to branch out, becoming more independant and eventually killing Assina in the 2180's.
Personality wise, she is open about her love of killing people and is disdainful towards do-gooders, especially if they get in her way - she rarely spares people but she doesn't go on killing sprees, she prefers getting money for what she loves. She is forceful and will make her opinion known but she can be personable and fun, she just grows bored easily when tasked with day-to-day things or a normal job. She loves the thrill of the challenge.
She enjoys being in the background much more than being centre stage and is paranoid about her lifespan. She has no interest in furthering mankind and knows people would kill to get their hands on her genetic code. She will only mention it to those she feels won't betray her. She is loyal - to a point. Depending on how close the person is, she will still take contracts on a friend if the money is right.
Her favourite colour is teal, she loves sweeter foods and surrounding herself with luxurious things. The bigger and higher quality, the better.
