This is my story....

Okay.....So I've been waiting for the right time where my technical skills reach the right level to unleash this beast of a character that's been years in the making......Litereally...

So back when I was...well 17/18 I wrote a section of a detailed story and submitted it for my Film Studies Coursework, in the form of a screenplay....however previous to that, I had been writing/designing characters to fit into the narrative, as well as a detailed plot outline...

I really wanted to make a fantasy/sci-fi piece that was set in modern day reality, inspired by a mixture of elements, such as final fantasy, bleach, x-men etc...where characters would have special ablilties, that reflected their personality, and call them forth from their 'soul' at any given moment to fight against their enemies, ranging from weapons, to magic etc...but to really make the characters more believable, and relative to the audience, they would be apart of everyday life, and experience everyday things, emotions that show how human they really are, and connect to the viewer/player on a more personal level.

I really feel like their isnt enough games/films that reflect these qualities....

So basically, in a nutshell it starts with this modern day city, where the character all live. Just along the borders of the city lay some old, desolate ruins of an ancient civilisation...though completely disregarded by the populus over the years, and destroyed by generations of neglect, it actually portrays the bordering cities genetic heritage to the civiliastion (which actually is an alien one, special powers etc) but over the years these 'genes' have become dominated/diluted by human intergration, thought still laying recessive in thier DNA.

Then basically out of the ruins one day....this boy appears, as well a girl elsewhere....there found with weird identical markings on their backs, and seperately taking into foster care as orphans, never knowing the other. Turns out these children, (who have actually been warped to earth from a far planet for unknown reasons, when reached a certain age unlock their full potential (powers) as well as activate any 'recessive genes' in the population around them, as though leaking radiation...

The government however, have been aware of this years prior, and wait for the right time for the two 'now teenagers' to awaken and use these 'powers' in experiments etc....and basically results in the two being caught...and escaping....with help from their close friends....(which the at the time, have also awoken) and epic fights ensue with 'soldiers' who have undergone synthetic alteration to battle the 'Resistance' whilst still trying to remain 'hidden' in society, carrying out their daily lives.

So that is as basic as I could possibly get with the outline, hopefully it doesnt sound cheap like that...but
It's been such a powerful part of my art/storytelling since I can remember, even the basic sketch's were a stepping stone in my development as an artist, and is what helped me push myself to do CG, which is why I want to revisit, and breathe new life into it....

Sion Caelo Animus is the main character's name....which was intially just 'Sion' but I spent hours researching yesterday to find a more 'complete' version, that reflected the character as i wanted it to.....hence the other two names....both in latin, they translate to 'Sky, Soul'

I think my next move would be to upload my old version's of Sion, to give more of a sense of development in both my skill, and idea's.
