An Inkling who defies her peer’s choices in favored modern-day weapons. Her ferocity and brutality in battle (as well as her incredible usage of one of their traditional weapons) has ironically won her the grudging respect of the Octolings who clash with her and the anxiety and discomfort from her own Inkling allies.
Vie can come off as rather rude or blunt, and often times cares little for the Turf Wars between the Octarians and the Inklings, instead seeing it as an opportunity to hone her blade skills and turn them against their originators. Many of her companions have jokingly theorized that Vie’s family tree must have at some point intermixed with an Octoling or maybe three, considering how much more early activity Vie partakes in, jogging, swimming, sword forms, all in a single morning in contrast to the usual easy-going nature of Inklings.
Vie denies everything.
She’s highly efficient and hates slacking off- which puts her at odds with the majority of her race on an average day. Doesn’t really comprehend what good actual relaxation is good for- instead she finds her comfort in practicing her art as usual. Most of the time if she’s not busy challenging and provoking Octolings into a good fight, she’ll be at her dojo-home. Her dojo itself gets few students, and most are driven away by Vie’s over enthusiastic demonstrations with the blade.
The Inkatana, Vie’s main weapon, is a traditional Octoling close to mid ranged weapon whose length is adjustable depending on the amount of ink being channeled through its hilt. While not in use, it is a simple hilt and crossguard kept strapped to Vie’s side at all times. When ‘ignited’, the ‘blade’ can either be forcibly ejected from the crossguard, which costs Vie more ink use than desired in exchange for unrivaled speed in which she can retaliate, or alternatively if the crossguard section is swiped through ink in any way, it can form the blade from any ink that was exposed to it. This latter method produces a more brittle blade initially, and is slower to form, but conserves Vie’s initial ink output.
The nature of the Inkatana is that of precise movements and ink usage to sever paths to wall off opponents from escaping.
It was only ever produced and used by Octoling and Octarian forces. When questioned on the origin of her weapon, Vie often dismisses it as a family heirloom.
So... to be truthful, I'm usually too lazy to get off my butt and scan/photograph my pictures to put up on dA. Except I got an awesome new phone recently to make my life and job easier.
So... I'm not really an active artist. I art when I'm inspired and pretty much just consider myself a hobbyist in art (although I would eagerly work it into my future somehow if I could). In other words, I don't really update regularly, and I do love experimenting and dabbling in a wide range of mediums (not necessarily good at all or any of them OTL)
But, I'm really honored for any favorites and the likes, especially since I have so much more to improve on (and it's improving rather slowly too >.>)
