project Scales and Jenny with some final character designs for the main protagonists and Antagonists in the story.
Millions of years ago the world was created with the purest of magic ,known as Spectrum protected by the Fabrications, Two ancient evils The Iron Spawn and The Galestormers stole some of Spectrum and transformed it in to a tool/drug called Spec that allowed them and other criminal empires to raise in power and infect millions .The remaining fragments of the Fabrications have recruited individuals on the planet who are gifted with the pureness of Spectrum and have formed SPUD (Spectrum Peace Unity Defenders) a global hero/ spy organisation to fight back against the imposing evils. Two new junior recruits have just been appointed to the movement, Scales and Jenny. SPUD believes They show a lot of promise in the ongoing fight. But with them coming from two opposite sides of the world can they get along with each other and Fully commit to the tough missions/adventures awaiting them?
SPUD is a world wide organisation made up of individuals from different nations who have the pureness of spectrum meaning they are born with the goodness of magic in them that then awakens at some point incredible gifts and powers capable of stopping Spec and its dark origins. some of these people have been tainted by Spec but use it as a weapon against the enemies.
Spectrum is the magic that created the world of Scales and Jenny and its protectors the Fabrications . it is used as the primary energy that keeps the worlds heart and its civilisations alive. Spectrum is the embodiment of pure goodness, whoever comes in contact with it (good or bad) will be blessed with powers or changes for a better life. The goal of Spectrum is to reverse the taint of the ancient evil The Iron Spawn and change the world for the better.
Spec is the tainted version of Spectrum, the magic that created the world of Scales and Jenny and its protectors the Fabrications . it is used as the primarily power of control by the ancient evils The Iron Spawn, The Galestormers,and crime syndicates sold as a drug or used as a weapon to corrupt the world .Spec is the embodiment of pure evil so who ever comes to in contact with it (hero or innocent individual) will be infected with powers or changes for a life loyal to darkness. The goal of spec is to stop the forces of good from advancing in their view of a peaceful world. The effects vary in many ugly ways....
Scales could be classed as a fish out of water as she originally comes from the ocean kingdom however after her first encounter with an Iron spawn that was trying to infiltrate her homeland she awakens the pure spectrum inside her which gives her the elemental gift to channel the ocean on and off dry land. SPUD recruit her in to the organisation where she meets Jenny and forms a team to stop Spec from spreading across the land. Shes a very bubbly individual with a curiosity for exploring the outside world but she is sometimes prone to being stressed when things get overwhelming . She has a tiny pet crab called clipper that she is very productive of and can link with in battle for some super special attacks.
Jenny is originally from a fringe community made up of Galestormers and Pandorians who abandoned their kingdoms and are now spied on by the Pandorian governments representative called Danaki. Jenny awakens her pure spectrum gift after Danaki invades her community, her powers are the elemental magic of ice and snow this is also influenced by her strong survival skills and combat training. Jenny escapes the invasion and joins Spud not only to stop Spec with Scales but also to solve the mystery of the Danaki's sinister plans. Jenny is more snarky and blunt then Scales. she owns an exotic pet called Eugene who is very warm and fluffy. these two can combine their powers in a fight for some super special attacks .
As the name implies he is the current tyrannical ruler of the ancient evil known as The Iron Spawn. A race of twisted machine like creatures who's origin is unknown but intention is to consume the pureness of spectrum by tainting and destroying the worlds though the use of Spec. Gunbody like the previous rulers had a huge intimidating body but during a battle with one of The Spawns oldest foes the Playlandians (a universe made of toys) . his body was destroyed and had to be replaced with the torso of a fallen Playlandian solider to keep him alive. To most Spawns his change is considered an embarrassment. But just because his now the size of a ken doll dose not mean he poses no serious threat to the world. he is the sole reason Spec exists and while he continues too see the taint spread by the mafia he is currently developing the secret project Armageddon flower
Fredwick is the young heir to the throne of the Galestormers, A race of people said to have been born thousands of years ago from the very winds themselves .For decades they were in a fearsome fight with the Pandorian Empire, a kingdom of great magic gifted by the Fabrications. The Gales were defeated and forced to live in the deadly spire mountains. Ferdwick's late father formed an alliance with the Iron Spawn who in return shared their advanced dark technology and helped to make The Gales a feared name . Since then Fredwick has helped distribute Spec to the masses and oversees his fathers ambitious plans. to annihilate the Pandorians with nuclear capabilities.
extra note: Ferdwick has spent so much time around radioactive material that its effected his appearance and immunity to the harsh environment of the spire mountains.
At this current stage I am trying to get a body of finished artwork done for the characters and world that will aid in me explaining the story better.
