NFW - Fatalis by LeadZero NFW - Fatalis by LeadZero
This is one of my original designs, part of an original story arc of mine called the "New Force Wars", which I hope might eventually evolve into a personal comic project of mine, but only time will tell.

This is Darth Fatalis, one of eight members of the Boganite High Council. Now what the heck is a Boganite? Well, despite some of its members bearing the "Darth" title, they are not Sith... they're better. They believe themselves as the Sith made pure, the Sith made perfect, whose only purpose is to serve the will of the Dark Side of the Force, much like the Jedi serve the Living Force, albeit twisted and perverted, with no intention to seek power for themselves. In a world where both the Sith and Jedi orders have both been disintegrated, the Boganites seem unstoppable.

Anyways, my first character of this series here (that I've posted at least) is of the Darth Nihilus mold: creepy and enigmatic. He tends to just lurk in the shadows. His formidable Force ability keeps his enemy at a distance. While he does own a lightsaber, he's never had to activate it as nobody has ever approached him close enough to require close combat.

This is a character concept piece. His design is meant to be quite simplistic in design, simple robe, simple armor design, this guy isn't meant to be that flashy. This piece was basically me employing some completely new techniques that I wanted to try out, and I'm quite happy with it. Still not professional quality, but I think I'm making progress.

First off, overall good espec. like the hat. I think this guy needs to have a torso though. Or arms or some other indicator that the character is not a normal human in body proportions (like an alien perhaps). As it is so far the legs seem right, arm length, head, dimensions in general... except where is the torso?

....By "formidable Force ability", do you mean his ability to say "NI!" to people? Because that's what this makes me think of.

Anyhoo, this is pretty fantastic. Keep up the good work!

lol oh no, the Boganites don't ever at all for a second believe that they're ever doing wrong... ever. They live so that the Force's will may become a reality. They argue that, just as the universe began in darkness, so is the Force inherently of the Dark Side, tainted by the light. The Boganites wish to return everything to darkness, which they try to achieve in more ways than one.

I get that. Just make sure that you put certain checks on their potential. Star Wars OC's have a tendency to..... get a little out of hand.

This looks awesome and I love the story behind it too. The Boganites sound awesome!! I would be interested in learning or hearing more, are you planning on writing a fan fic or something like that?

A fan fic? Sure I might do that. I do hope to eventually turn this story into a fan comic or something. I'll keep giving more info on the background of the story in the subsequent Boganite pieces, but I'll hold out on revealing the more major revelations until the comic happens... if it EVER happens. =P

Definitely a cool concept. :)
I'm not liking the horns, but I must admit it does make him look spooky/scary.
I love the armor (especially the helmet) and robe. ^_^
You should do a concept piece of his saber, maybe not with him using it but just sitting out on a desk or something.

I just wanted to have one modernish Sith Lord, well Boganite Lord actually, with simple horns, to pay homage to the ancient Golden Age Sith Lords, such as Marka Ragnos, or Dathka Graush. Yeah, I was thinking of including a lightsaber on the side, maybe sometime later.

Right I understand, and I can't wait to see the saber.
What kind will it be, regular or organic?

Also are the Boganites like the Bando Gora?
Reply
:iconleadzero:
LeadZero Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2011
I'm thinking regular with runes and things on it. I don't want to make them organic since in my fan continuity the Boganite Order comes right after Darth Krayt's order, which all use coral lightsabers.

The Boganites are the successors of the Sith order, which was destroyed along with the Jedi order. Founded by a former Jedi after his order disintegrated, they are followers of Bogan, that is, the Dark Side of the Force. Instead of seeking power for themselves, they seek to bring the whole world to balance by returning it to darkness, which they believe is the will of Force. They reason that because the world began in darkness, the true nature of the Force has always been the Dark Side, and that is was "corrupted" by light.

Ah ok, cool.

And that sounds kind of similar to "The Son" from the Mortis Trilogy from Star Wars: The CLone Wars.
I can't wait to see more of this story and it's characters.

When the Mortis trilogy trailer first came out, I thought that the Son WAS Bogan. Bogan is a canon entity in Star Wars by the way if you didn't already know.

Actually never played Dragon Age... influences here are from the several horn-helmeted Sith from Tales of the Jedi.

lol well more than anything, I was afraid people would notice the high resemblance to Darth Vader's armor, particularly the breastplate.

Well I have a character who doesn't look very original, so I wouldn't worry about that. What I care about is the character itself. His personality, cause people may think my character looks like a mix of Anakin and Vader's armor, but the character itself is nothing like him. And the resemblance was on purpose, not because I couldn't be more creative, but because the story demanded it. So if you can keep the character itself original then you shouldn't worry about any resemblances. Tbh I thought it would have been cool if you had been inspired by Dragon Age... It's a cool game.

Reminds me of how Darth Krayt believes his Sith are, well, "new and improved", so to speak. And Palpatine. And Bane. And XoXann, who seems to think those who came LATER got it wrong.
Not an uncommon sentiment for Sith, it seems.

Like the character concept, though; always liked Force users who didn't resort to the lightsaber, and use the Force as their weapon.

Thanks.
It's funny because within my own little continuity, the Boganites were actually founded by a former Jedi knight, after the order was disintegrated by the government. He saw the failure of the Sith as being that their actions were fueled by their selfishness and greed, instead of being meant for the greater will of the Force. Of course, this vision has been somewhat distorted in view of the Dark Side. While they are in essence, an evolution of the Sith, Boganite members generally don't associate themselves with them, aside from the use of the "Darth" title.
