Character Contest 61 – Aries

Mars is the ruling planet of Aries. “Mars Ultor” is the Roman equivalent of the Greek god Ares. Mars is not necessarily the god of war. He is the Avenger. Literally, one who fights to right wrongs and seeks justice not simply attacks or conquers. A very different manifestation from “might makes right” but a deity of law (though by modern standards, still very savage).

I added the “swirly” Pattern to my Mars Ultor to give the design a sort of off-setting artistic Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” appeal. That was supposed to be more than a pilot and her mech; rather, a piece of art and culture. It was a stretch. Personally, I like the result. One of my favorite creations.
