I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warning. Only post characters that have been created solely using Hero Machine, and that you know for certain have never been entered in a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.

    The Atmospheric Order harnesses the power of the storm to defend peace and order. Updraft Paladin excels at using gusts of wind to impede the opponents’ mobility and disrupt their actions.

    My entry this week: Erion, the Phoenix God!

    In the beginning there was only darkness. Then, from the primordial flame that burns in the center of the Universe, Erion, god of Fire, Bravery and Ressurection, was born.
    Using the fire that burned within His heart, He created the Sun, the Moon, and Earth, the animals and plants, and humanity to protect the planet and thrive in it. He also gave humanity fire, creating civilization, and granted a few trusted humans His own powers to be the guardians against the forces of evil: the Paladins.

    It is said that, whenever a person sees a red Phoenix flying through the skies, he or she is destined to become a Paladin; to dedicate their lives to stopping demonic forces, punishing the wicked, and spreading Erion’s Holy Word. Brave warriors who shall fear no evil, for if they fall in the battlefield, Erion shall bring them back to the world of the living, like the Phoenix rising from its own ashes.

    The Gryphon

    Robert Landon was a world renowned expert in ancient antiquities. One day while excavating in India he came across a golden medallion with a Gryphon engraved on it. He decided to wear it around his neck for safe keeping, and as soon as he did it started glowing and embedded itself into his chest. He soon found out he could transform into a mighty and powerful Gryphon. He uses his newfound powers to fight for good.

    Being the unrecognized bastard son of Hell’s King of the Ninth Circle can be a little trying. Gormagon takes it in stride, finding comfort with his human family and doing his best to use his demonic nature to help people, Vatican Hunters be quite literally damned.

    He patrols the darkness of both Night and Shadows, protecting the deserved and striking back at the true monsters plaguing the mortal realms; be they human, angel, demon, or god.,h_800,q_70,strp/gormagon_kethire_by_shadow_quickpaw_dczxng6-pre.jpg
