Riona Eldrid, also known as the Iron Serpent, is one of the most famous members of the Aegis Defenders. Not much is know of her before her acceptance into the Aegis Defender and her siblings refuse to talk on the subject which only deepens the mystery. But despite this she is well respected by her peers and loved the public for her charismatic and compassionate persona. Her skill in combat is among the best and she has been know to take out multiple enemy squadrons by herself. Her serpent-like armor and weapon has given her the name, Iron serpent and is among one of the most elaborately designed and mysterious armor known. The armor and weapon she bears have been with her before she was first joined the Aegis, Other than this no other information is known. There are rumors that the armor and weapons are made from Iron and bronze-like material that are of celestial origin and forged with powerful magic. Rumor has it that they can change shape at her will when she engages in intense combat and even as far as to say that the armor itself is alive, though so far no one has ever seen it with their own eyes or lived to tell of it. Its designer is said to be Riona herself and is frequently criticized by her brother who always points out that it does not provide sufficient protection and show too much. But much to his dissatisfaction, she refused to wear any other armor. I've had this character for an while and drew this one back in 2005. I decided to color this one cuase I really like this character.
