Lady Varuni and Legionary-Corporal Yara


Voidsuits are one of the most essential parts of any stellar adventurer's wardrobe, offering solace from the many environmental hazards found on unexplored worlds. They protect their wearer from intense pressures, extreme temperatures, dangerous energy sources, toxic atmospheres, and hazardous liquids among other things, making them useful not only in the vacuum of space but also deep underwater or on a hostile planet.

Sunspear


Sunspears or sunblades are traditional Aqylan polearms which mount an intense source of energy, such as a cutting torch or heat ray, between one to four sharp adamantine blades on the tip of the weapon. They were originally wielded by the elite Ansar warriors of Astrid Iovan's empire nearly 1,700 years ago, used to pierce through heavily armoured infantry and vehicles in melee when other portable anti-tank weapons failed to have an effect.

Modern versions are tremendously advanced, often fitted with particle beams or plasma guns which make them effective at much longer ranges than the more traditional designs. Sunspears have become fairly common today, if still somewhat specialized, most famously used as the primary weapon of the Aegis of Valora and in a smaller form by some Mantle units.

Arshia and Lyara


The Republic Navy may not have an entire branch dedicated to fielding elite troops like the army's Special Forces Division, but they do maintain quite a few of their own commandos for when basic marines won't cut it. From heavily armed Marine Raiders and jump troopers to more covert Force Reconnaissance teams and paramarines, there's no shortage of options to get a job done right.

Captain Lyara Idros, also known as the Hero of New Cov or just "that lady from the marine pinups", is a Mirialan from Dantooine serving in the Republic Navy's elite 251st Special Reconnaissance Regiment. Her second in command is Lieutenant Arshia Thali, a Corellian corpsman famed for earning first class Bloodstripes at just 17 years old during the Battle of Corellia.

High Priestess Scyriss


"He was delayed by Margonites, you say? I'm sorry, but it is a proven fact that they are a myth! Nice try."

Though Abaddon is long dead, replaced by the new goddess of truth Kormir over 250 years ago, a small few of his ancient demonic followers live on scattered across the deserts of Elona and elsewhere in Tyria. Some have attempted to atone for their sins by sharing their knowledge with groups such as the Durmand Priory or Order of Whispers. Others continue to obsessively collect knowledge and artifacts as they did before, scheming to gain power or defile the legacy of those heroes who defeated their lord.

Darth Vaal


It takes great power to weave flesh and bone. Any alchemist worthy of their title can create crude bestial abominations, but it takes a true master of sorcery to enhance sentient beings into superior forms. Alchemical modification can be immensely painful and often leaves victims marked with horns, scars, or bony ridges as side effects, however the price is well worth it to become so much stronger.

edit: had to make the DS corruption more visible and therefore more cute lol
