Schala — The Paladin

Schala — Paladin

Theme: [link]

Why did the princess bow to fate? Why did she give in her will?
Why did the young prince not speak up? What bound him silent still?
If only he lament­ed the uncer­tain, inevitable… if only he stole the light…
The princess would have her will regained to set the wrong to right.

I made this por­trait for a dear friend, who has always been around in time of need. He’s a fan of Schala, and often imag­ined her to (in an alter­nate uni­verse) take Janus’ place as a war­rior, per­haps a Fiendlady. But here, I re-imag­ined her as a war­rior of light, based on anoth­er dear friend’s per­sona.

The armor was based on Magus’ leather vest. But instead of just giv­ing her a scythe, I thought rapiers would make her even more awe­some.
