Character Design Contest ♯85- National Heroes

Ok guys, for this weeks contest I want you to create a nation themed hero in the vein of Captain America and such. You can choose any nation you please, but I would ask that you refrain from doing America if you can, that one has been done to death don't you think.

As per usual, no limits on entries this week and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). The winner gets to claim a custom made item from dblade to be put into heromachine, so long as the item conforms to his prize rules, which you can find here: Please read the contest rules before entering, have fun and good luck.

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges that I am hosting: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games. The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warnings. Only post characters that you have either created for this contest specifically or you know for certain have never been entered to 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.

    This is Mana, descendant from the argentine indian tribe known as Toba.
    She’s a soldier who knows her way around fireguns but hasn’t forget her fighting skills with her grandfather’s weapon: a handmade stone-and-cane lance.

  21. TheNate says:

    The Quetzal is a bird with iridescent coloring and long tail feathers. It’s both the national bird of Guatemala (there’s one on the flag) and the name of the currency. So, of course, Guatemala is represented here by the Quetzal.

  22. melmo44 says:

    Haven’t entered in a while, so I made a couple to make up for it.
    1. Great White North: The Armored Canuck!
    Attempts to recreate Bilford’s supersoldier serum are made every so often, despite multiple failures. The latest recruit to the program was Major Kincaid ‘Kin’ Westmere, a veteran who was partially paralyzed while on a tour of duty. While the new serum did not grant him the physical powers intended, it heightened his intelligence to off-the-charts levels. He used this to build a suit that allowed him the strength, durability, and powers of flight he had sought. He has taken the name of Great White North, in homage to the heroine True North.
    More about True North here:

    2. Gloriana: Chosen of Avalon
    Lottie Alden was enjoying a long-overdue trip to the sea. While on a boat ride with friends, a freak squall blew up and capsized the boat. Lottie found herself washed up on an unfamiliar island, full of strange creatures, magic, and a group of ethereal women. Their leader named herself as Vivian, and the women as priestesses, and that Lottie had been chosen by the Island of Avalon as a Champion of Light. She was imbued with mystical powers that gave her, among other gifts, strength, agility, and durability. She was also given Avalon’s Might, the sword of the Champion. Back in the world, Lottie created a costume for herself, and took for a name Gloriana, one of the titles of Queen Elizabeth I in her fight against both the mystical and the mundane.

  23. Skybandit says:

    The smallest country in the world only needs one champion…
