    I may post more later on this week, but I’m not sure.
    Good luck, everyone! 😀

  2. Krath is the heir to the throne of Valakmir, the planet of the Vlakmordians. He has never seen eye to eye with his father and feels that it is time to take what is rightfully his, the throne.

    I wonder if the competition will be 2.5 times tougher than last week?

  3. Well, I have a few entries.
    First up is Plutus the Gem Lord
    https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-Fk7HX8EQ5zE/VGujNvJ9DpI/AAAAAAAABRU/0fdTgAgtZ7g/s512/Anate_Plutus_the_Gem_Lord.jpg

    https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-ZNPlSnyYsTM/VGujOP5oHeI/AAAAAAAABRc/meYuSo-4miI/s512/Anate_Morgana_the_Pirate_Queen.jpg
    She was born in the country of Zephyria, but at young age her village was attacked, and she was taken and sold as a slave in Mul-Dorvan. She was a slave on a merchant ship. Years later, she killed her master and freeing other slaves formed a pirate crew that spent its time attacking the slave ships of Mul-Dorvan.

    Third up is Enion the Smith
    https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-CuFIyDTGAOw/VGujOSHRe7I/AAAAAAAABRg/zrc7fBtUqXk/s512/Anate_Einion_the_Smith.jpg
    Enion the Smith was one of the most skilled gnomish smiths during The Elemental Wars, and he became the personal smith of Gwendolen, The First Queen of Zephyria.

    Fourth up is Prince Yorath of Zephyria
    https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-xL9P91tS5Rg/VGujO2C6wqI/AAAAAAAABRs/4UnqKhE-NuU/s512/Anate_Prince_Yorath_of_Zephyria.jpg
    Yorath is the son of Queen Gwendolen of Zephyria. He is a powerful warrior like his mother and his father Sir Grimwulf the Horned Dread. His armor became somewhat of mix of his mother and his father’s. He is accompanied by his hunting wolfhound Rufus and his bodyguard Lucia.

    Fifth up is Sir Grimwulf the Horned Dread
    https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-duZ4oRj8h2A/VGujPVylJLI/AAAAAAAABR0/rdxK6dRge3Y/s512/Anate_Sir_Grimwulf_the_Horned_Dread.jpg
    Grimwulf the Horned Dread was a powerful warrior with ogre blood running through his veins during The Elemental Warriors. He often fought by the side of Gwendolen, and the two of them ended up being married. He also became friends with the air elemental Cumulus, who often accompanied Grimwulf into battle.

    Next up we have fourth brothers. I give you Anemoi.
    First of the Anemoi is Zephyrus
    https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-qwdjQkz7lhM/VGujPv0ZFnI/AAAAAAAABR4/Dm31VIfMdjI/s512/Anate_Zephyrus.jpg
    Zephyrus is also known as The Kindly West Wind. Merdinus ended up having Zephyrus agree to bind himself to the royal family of Zephyria (hence the name of the country). He is one of the four princes of The Air Elementals.

    Second of the Anemoi, we have Notus.
    https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-yYJilRAnPJQ/VGujQDJHD9I/AAAAAAAABSE/vrpRZioX1cU/s512/Anate_Notus.jpg
    Notus is also known as The Stormy South Wind. He is one of the four princes of The Air Elementals and inhabits a tropical land in the south. He is known for having great leathery wings, but he does not often interact with humans.

    Third of the Anemoi, we have Eurus.
    https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-Q1vE1O98idY/VGujQiwpcII/AAAAAAAABSM/GZsQ2umAyKY/s512/Anate_Eurus.jpg
    Eurus is also known as The Warm East Wind. He is one of the four princes of The Air Elementals. He dwells in the eastern land of Euria, one of the two kingdoms that Merdinus established at the end of The Elemental Wars. Like Zephyrus, he is somewhat bound to the royal family of Euria.

    Fourth of the Anemoi, we have Boreas.
    https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-aPgBGBlNjyM/VGujRMJXwOI/AAAAAAAABSQ/m8p4_aXaO6s/s512/Anate_Boreas.jpg
    Boreas is also known as The Chilly North Wind. he is one of the four princes of The Air Elementals. He dwells in the cold north and rarely interacts with humans besides the few that dwell in the great castle of Frosthold. He is the only one of the Anemoi that chose to fashion an appearance without wings.

  4. And I have created a few more.
    The Winter King
    https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-Vm5yRVLB210/VGzkirmsJlI/AAAAAAAABSk/33FPqKnNV_k/s512/Anate_The_Winter_King.jpg
    The Winter King was a powerful blue dragon, who led many dragons in a rebellion against Gwynfor, The White Dragon and Father of all Dragons, during The Elemental War. He is served by Nimue, The Autumnal Lady, who was once a student of Merdinus. He believes that the weak should perish and the strong should survive. Nearing the end of his rebellion, The White Dragon bounded The Winter King in his humanoid form to limit the evil dragon’s power.
    The Autumnal Lady Nimue
    https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-hEON5q_yvnQ/VGzkiyuNAxI/AAAAAAAABSo/HS9cMSsl954/s512/Anate_The_Autumnal_Lady_Nimue.jpg
    The Autumnal Lady Nimue was a Fomorian and descended from the royal family of Atlantis. She became a student of Merdinus and learned how to bond with Elementals to become a mage. However, she ended up bonding with four mad Elementals, Atra (a light elemental), Khaos (a water elemental), Decay (a wood elemental), and Destruction (an earth elemental). She was also the lover of Osric, another one of Merdinus’ students. When she ended up betraying Merdinus, Osric followed her.
    Osric, Student of Merdinus
    https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-8hemJzmXLws/VGzkjVOgY2I/AAAAAAAABSw/5dxx8JwyM08/s512/Anate_Osric_the_Student_of_Merdinus.jpg

    Aniketos the Red Mage was one of Merdinus’ top students even though he only bonded four elementals. The elementals that he bonded were Audra (an air elemental), Agni (a fire elemental), and Voski (a metal elemental). He always disliked Osric since he viewed his fellow student as somewhat of a foppish pretty boy.
    Audra

  7. Aight so my first contest..

    My first character is Cain. He is a half-human Demi-God. He has domain over fire, which he inherited from his father Ignas. Usually seen puffing on a cigarette and wielding a large sword, Cain burns and cuts his enemies down with ease.

    My second is Ignas, Cain’s father, the God of Fire.
