So, with Monty Oum's passing, and his family and friends stating
that the best way to honor him is to show creativity, I decided to bite the bullet, and reveal the secret project I had been working on for a long while. In fact, this was on my sta.sh for quite some time. A lot of it's outdated, especially the actual drawing, as I have long updated it. It's just that, well, I feel like it'd be a good idea to just let you all see the beginnings of my story first. I've edited some stuff in the info, but not by much.
(So here's the main character for the first story in what I'd like to call the "Knightic Heroes" series. The first story is "Crystal Knight Solron", and the second "Noble Heroes Knightmen". There are spinoffs of both stories, though I won't tell you all those yet.)
Crystal Knight SolronAge:
Human (Knight)Hair Color:
Blond (natural); Dark Blue (dyed)Eye Color:
165 lbs. (as Jase); 185 lbs. (as Solron)Powers/Abilities:
- Sardonyx Space
: Allows him to hide the Gembelt, Power Stones, and any other object in a personal subspace pocket until needed.
- Superhuman Durability
: Gained after obtaining the Gembelt, Jase is able to withstand incredible amounts of physical harm in either identity.
- Superhuman Reflexes and Agility
: Gained after obtaining the Gembelt, Jase has a faster reaction time and is overall quicker than the average person.
- Superhuman Strength
: Gained after obtaining the Gembelt, Jase is now able to lift up to twice his own weight without feeling any stress.
- Athletic Body
: Jase has a daily excercising regiment to keep up a strong physical body, which is suitable for Solron's powers.
- Inner Magic
: Like any other human, Jase has his own personal magic source within him. However, unlike most, his is high enough to attain Knighthood, and therefore eligible for Solron's powers.
- Magic Barrier
: A magic barrier that was created by the Gembelt to protect Jase. This barrier, unlike most barriers, is able to prevent any sort of Ailment-type Magic and Offensive-type Magic from harming Jase (ex., Jase cannot be forcibly transformed into something else by someone's Transformation Magic), as this barrier's origins start with Prismazhin, a god. However, because of this, any harm-intended Spell that makes contact with this barrier creates a backlash of magical Energy, which then changes into an explosion that varies in size, depending on how large the Spell had been intended to be. The barrier also protects Jase from physical attacks, though they can still get through and cause some damage.
: One of the unique abilities to Solron; depending on the Power Stone that is placed on the central Receptor, Jase, as Solron, is able to change into a different form based on that Power Stone's Element. This is a useful and powerful ability that Jase has been given, as Knights, upon gaining their powers, are unable to change their armor, powers, and weapons.
- Gemstone Synchronization (Gem Sync)
: Usable only as Solron, the Gemstone Synchronization ability allows Jase to harmonize two or three Power Stones at once for a variety of different combinations. For a Gemstone Synchronization of three Power Stones, they must be of all the same Element (ex., Fire Garnet + Burst Citrine + Burner Ruby = Fireburst Burner), since the Synchronization is in a safer zone, compared to using three Power Stones of different Elements.
- Street Fighting Skills
: Unlike most Knights, Jase utilizes a more pragmatic and "dirtier" way of fighting, using blows to vital areas (like the groin, stomach, eyes, and neck) and his environment to his advantage in addition to his own powers. Tools:
: The most essential tool in Jase's arsenal, the Gembelt enables Jase to wear the Solron armor and become Crystal Knight Solron. Only one chosen person is able to wear the Gembelt at a given time.
- Power Stone Receptors
: Only present as Solron, the Power Stone Receptors are what enable Jase to access the powers and weapons the Power Stones provide. There are four Power Stone Receptors overall on the armor; two are located on the hands (for the right and left Power Stones), one on the chest (for the form-changing Power Stones), and one on the belt (which is used exclusively for the Crystal Changer).
- Power Stones
: Also essential to Jase's arsenal, the Power Stones allow Jase to access different armaments and forms. Each Power Stone has its own spirit that guide and protect him as he learns how to use the powers of Solron. There are 15 Power Stones overall, which are divided into five sets of three based on Element. The five Right Arm Power Stones provide a physical ability, while the five Left Arm Power Stones provide a Magical ability. The central Power Stones, on the other hand, allow Solron to change into a different form.
- Crystal Changer
: The only Power Stone without a spirit, the Crystal Changer is what provides the most basic armor of Solron. Personality:
Usually pleasant and easy to talk to, though he prefers to stay quiet most of the time. Very thoughtful and considerate of others, and sometimes very selfless. Jase is humble, and doesn't want to use his powers as Solron to become a celebrity, and thus keeps them a secret. He's also pragmatic, and prefers to use a quicker, unpredictable, and "dirtier" way of fighting when needed. However, when someone wrongs him, he can lose his temper easily, and gets into more fights as a results. Personal Information:
Originally from Garrington, Jase had moved away from the city not even five months old due to a combination of his father's job and the loss of his mother in a fire. As he grew up, his father would move them place to place until they settled down in Olton with his father's best friends in his 6th grade year. He spent little time making friends, though he eventually found love with a girl named Hayden Mannings, but tragedy would struck when she and her sister were killed in his 9th grade year by a drunk driver, with him as a witness, as he had been biking along when he saw the event unravel. The drunk driver was never caught, making the police theorize that he had been killed by a monster, due to the increase of monster attacks lately. Jase would eventually decide to travel the country after high school to honor Hayden's wish for a roadtrip, learning how to drive an RV in addition to his normal driving license. He would first stop in his birthplace of Garrington, wanting to see the city where his parents first met in, not to mention to see the Garrington Museum of History, one of the country's best museums, and the main headquarters of the Monster Guard, the nation's first organized monster-prevention group. When he was at the museum, however, he and the other patrons were attacked by an orge who broke in. The orge would have attacked a young girl and her brother if Jase didn't distract it by hurling a full soda can at its head, making it chase him around the exhibits until he came across the display case of the Gembelt, an ancient relic that was said to have been the only item to grant a chosen user the powers of multiple elements. He heard several voices beckon him to wear the belt, and while hesitant, he did, gaining the power of Solron, a Knight that was said to have brought the end of many wars and battles with the use of the Power Stones. He also discovered that there were spirits within the Power Stones, who were to guide and protect him as he learned to fight with Solron's powers. With his newfound powers and already existing abilities, Jase defeated the orge, becoming famous as a new Knight, and gained Troy Rojan and Phoebe Curnack as new friends, who were also candidates for the powers of Solron, and thus are still able to see the spirits that assist Jase. Upon discovering that a group of monsters called True World are behind the increasing amount of monster attacks, and that there were five more Power Stones that will grant him more power that were scattered across the world, the three decided to make it their goal to find all five remaining Power Stones, and use them to stop True World from harming any more innocent people. Knight Stats/Information:
: Crystal Knight (Solron)
- Physical Strength
- Magic Power
- Additional Information
: Along with the balanced stats of the Crystal Knight form, it is also the only form that is able to use the two-stone variation of Gemstone Synchronization, thanks to its lack of an Element. Because of this, the Crystal Knight form is the most suitable for Jase's pragmatic style of fighting, since the form doesn't have a particular fighting style outside of utilizing the powers and weapons provided by the Power Stones. Even the form's main weakness of not being stronger in any of its stats than the other forms is easily fixed by utilizing the other Power Stones.
- Finisher (Without Power Stones)
: Crystal Kick
(A jump kick that's charged with non-Elemental Magic energy)Fun Facts:
I actually came up with Solron as a supporting character for NHK
, as a sort of "quasi"-seventh Knight to the team, serving as a fighting mentor, similar to the Auxillary Kyoryugers from "Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger". However, when I started to think about his history, powers, and personality, I decided to give him his own story, his own reasons for fighting, and expand on him overall. He still appears in NHK
later on as a mentor, though, teaching the six about the powers of the elements, and improving their fighting styles. He's usually kept busy by taking care of the Alter-World, the parallel world where most of the monsters come from (and the setting of CKS
's second season), and even has to go back after he finishes training the Knightmen.
- Originally, Solron would have had a pure sun-motif, but I thought that was a bit boring, so I decided to give him a gem-motif, which, not exclusively unique, was definitely different from the usual light/sun one.
- Unlike most Knight powers, the Solron powers were created directly by a god. The god, named Prismazhin, created the Gembelt and the original Power Stones to help a slave named Solru overthrow the oppressive Grand Legion, which followed the evil god Daelren, who sought the end of the universe. While Solru was successful in defeating the first Grand Legion with his own army, the alliances he made would fall apart after his death and his scattering of the Power Stones and Gembelt, and the Grand Legion would reform decades later.
- Jase's last name, Stogem, is derived from Sto
ne and Gem
- Every morning Jase has to wake up early to fix his hair to look like the way it does now. He does this as a way to honor Hayden, since his hairstyle was based on one of her favorite anime characters. He also wears the choker she gave him for his 13th birthday, even though he personally didn't like chokers at first.
- Though Jase appears to be mostly white, his heritage is actually mixed thanks to his mother. He's part Filipino, while his father is white.
- The RV that Jase drives functions as the main characters' base of operations until the second season, where they leave it with Jase's father for him to take care of while they figure out how to defeat the Grand Legion in the Alter-World.
- I'm actually not sure if there's a separate driving license for RVs and whatnot.
- The main characters travel around the world with the 10 Power Stone spirits using their powers together to open a portal with Sardonyx Space. And with all 15 together, they managed to create a portal to the Alter-World.
