With all characters comes a story or idea that defines who they are, what they are, and or what their past experiences were like. Well, with this character, there is more information than I would care to explain surrounding him. I am currently creating characters for a manga story that I am in the process of writing. I have a list of 5 characters that go together as a “group” per-say, and I wanted to choose one of the five to talk about and draw for this project.
There exists a group of warriors known as the Five Kings of Iakor. These warriors are ranked in order from 1 to 5, 1 being the most fierce, and 5 being the least fierce. They are known as the strongest warriors across all of the continent of Iakor, and presumably world, as far as we know currently. Each one of them seems to possess the power of at least one natural element or force. An example of this would be gravity, in the case of the 2nd King, whom is recognized as the second strongest out of the five. With that said, the main protagonist of the story, which for reasons I have left out of this, as well as many other details revolving around the storyline, due to irrelevancy, may find himself crossing paths with some of these warriors to achieve his goal(s). The one man that he will most definitely have to overcome is none other than the strongest person on the continent, the number one King, Ascelon (Gin Ascelon). With that said, the character I will be doing this project on is one of the main “antagonists,” Ascelon.

- Race: Human
- Gender: Male
- Height: 6′ 2″

Ascelon is a tall man with silver hair and black eyes. He wears loose-fitted dark pants and a dark shirt, which is separated by a semi-large band around his waist. He also wears a large, medium-collared, black cloak which occasionally encompasses his whole body (wraps around the front slightly). Sometimes the bottom portion of the cloak comes unbuttoned when he needs more range of motion, like when he is in a fight or just decides to unbutton it.
Ascelon’s overall appearance and concept is based off of the medieval time period. His name, Ascelon, derives from “Ascelin”, possibly a medieval name of a vampire.
Ascelon is a serious man who is confident in his own abilities, and he is always slightly anxious to fight. He tends to display mostly blank emotion, with the exception of certain situations; he tends to express joy when somebody gives him a challenge. To him, being the strongest around isn’t always a fun and joyous thing.
Overall, he seems to be a rather serious and dangerous (not evil) man to be around. Most people fear just the mention of his name and his title.
Ascelon’s history is unknown as of yet, but it is certain that he worked his way up to number one relatively quickly, and has been a part of the Kings of Iakor for 4 years now.
