Wyth by taghuso Wyth by taghuso
Wyth, twin sister of Durandel. She is mightiest in strength of all living mortals. Daughter of Deorn and Myrel; who was daughter of Aelfric; who was son of Aeth the Ravager.

In the lands of the Nari, where she dwells, she is called Vondhi, the thunderbolt. Her sword, the Black Star was forged from star fallen iron, and weighs as much as anvil. So great is her strength, she never throws the same spear twice.

The Durandel Cycle is the stories I have told my son since his days as a small child. I plan on drawing one of the many characters of these tales every week.

Pretty !

Can you tel me what's the name of the armor she wear ? That's not exactly a skirt and a corset, but i don't know the real name of those clothings... Same for the shoes, I'm sure it's mythological/roman, but... no idea XD

The armor of Wyth, called Vohndi (the Thunderbolt), is loosely based off of Greek Hoplite armor, The torso piece is a Linothorax and the skirt is a Ptergus. In the mythology of the world from which she comes, her mail is that of her legendary aunt, Queen Althea of the Narii, and called Vanthellum, meaning the Dark Cloak, or Night Coat. For Pathfinder/d20 game purposes, the armor is, Light armor, 15 lbs, provided +6 (4 armor and +2 enchantment) AC bonus, no skill penalty, -10% Arcane spell failure, The armor gives +1 to all saving throws, and provided continuous Protection from Arrows spell as if cast by a 12th lvl caster.

Well, i wasn't expecting that ^^
Thanks anyway, you almost stunned me with all the details :D Now IWHAAANTMOAAR !

So the ... falling ... thing is part of the linothorax (I was looking for this). According to Wikipedia, this is called a "Lambresquin" but i'm not sure this exist in English.
Surprisingly, you're actually not so far from the purpose of my request, but please remind me to not use this old D&D 4 master books for my future campaigns ... XD
(I definitively have to take a look to Pathfinder)

Pathfinder is D&D 3.5 Vastly improved (not that it was a bad system at all). I thoroughly recommend it. And call me a dork, but I believe, and don't quote me, the Lambresquin or Lambrequin is the fabric on the mantle of a the back of a knight's helm...

I have to agree she's very hot, but I also agree with :iconwolfdemongirl13: She looks like a cross between Wonder Woman and Xena: Warrior Princess.

Her skin must be super tough as well to hold the end of her blade like that.

She is very cute, though, for a super strong warrior!

She looks like a mix between Wonder woman, and Xena

Wonder Xena?

She would be considerably shorter than either of those ladies. But hardly terrible company to keep.
