Praetorian Lucetta and Pharamond, the Holy Aegis by PeterPrime Praetorian Lucetta and Pharamond, the Holy Aegis by PeterPrime
I haven't painted Lucetta for a really long time now, so I thought it would be a good idea, considering she's one of the earliest characters from my story.

So here she is, along with her right-hand, Pharamond, the Holy Aegis, Lucetta's best paladin, most trusted general and brutally loyal bodyguard.
They are the two highest ranking paladins in the Lemurian Empire.

Lucetta Gentile is one of the two praetorians who aren't originally from Lemuria, however Raphael Samael, the first praetorian saw her potential and actually made her the fifth praetorian, becoming one of the 6 greatest military leaders with the highest authority.
Before that, Pharamond was the leader of the Guardians, a group of elite lemurian paladins loyal to the church and the emperor. But after Lucetta passing all the trials of the paladins, and at such a young age, she took command of the unit, and Pharamond swore to become her aegis. 
And shortly after, the Guardians became one of the six elite units of the Empire. 
Tough and disciplined, he has always been an exceptional leader and the stout defender of justice and the innocent. But with Lucetta at the helm, they are stronger than ever, ready to face the enemies of Lemuria and the creatures of dark and evil.
They both wear heavy armor, which offers superior protection without even limiting mobility, especially because Lemurian armors are made of a lighter, but more durable metal than the other nations'.

Lucetta, like all praetorians, carries a divine weapon, which is much more powerful than even the regular lemurian weapons. Her blade can cut through almost anything with ease, it can even cut shields and armor in two with a single strike.
Pharamond mainly uses a large two-handed warhammer to crush his foes and his large shield.

I hope you'll like them!

Can we get a link to your story? or is it private for involved members only? Because the story itself sounds really interesting.

Only the descriptions you can find under these pictures are what from story.

Maybe one day I'll get it all together and write it down.

And thank you for your interest!

Hehe, and Dark Souls 2! Good old Garl and Velstadt!

Although, I think I'll repaint Pharamond's armor. I made it look too much like Velstadt's.

Garl's armor color, it seems more like, but Velstadt's general look.

Too bad Velstadt lore-wise beat Raime ;-;.

Yep, took inspiration from the series. Just forgot to mention it in the description.

Ahhh. Coolio. Well, it is a fun game. When I consider my armor choices when I play it, I always go for "cool-looking" over what's better stat-wise. hahaha

I love that armor design. It gets tiring seeing skin-tight and impractical armor on women. The colors balance nicely as well. Both of these characters look badass.

Pretty nice. The holy Aegis really reminds me of Garl Vinland from Demon Souls- appearance and story wise, both are very similar. Garl served as faithful guardian of the Sixth Saint Maiden Astrea, even after her fall.

Yeah, I really liked Garl's and Velstadt's characters. Them, being completely loyal to their own love/king.

Astraea's encounter was both extremely upsetting and fantastically done. Don't remember to many games that gave me such deep emotions about certain characters and your own actions.
You were supposed to be the good guy, but however you'd like to put it, you went there and murdered two pure souls. Which is kind of strange, since Astraea was supposed to be an arch demon, and yet she was just like her human self, wanting to save the innocent.

I'm also getting a velstadt vibe from Pharamond - not that that's bad.

 Did you base Pharamond on Velstadt the royal aegis from Dark Souls 2?

You could say partly, yes. Him and Garl Vinland from Demon's Souls. I am a big fan of the souls series, and those two characters have always been my favourite, both design and character-wise. Minus the ridicilously oversized weapons.

I know this is such a tiny minuscule detail but if you look closely at Pharamond you can see his face peeking out behind the slit in the helmet.

I just thought I should point that out. Little details like that show the most about an artist since they take the time to put something like that.

Hehe, so you noticed. I was thinking about having his face partly shown or go with the more mysterious completely dark look.
