Art Drop | Celestial Shield Invocations

The Seven Forms

While the Star Shield is what most people know Celestial Shields for, it’s their Pangool fueled Invocations that make them so mighty. What do they look like?

Tumo Mere has finished art for the Celestial Shields and their god fueled powers. And wow, what a sight they are!

The Celestial Shields are the Big Damn Heroes of Swordsfall. Not the only heroes mind you, but from top to bottom a Celestial Shield is trained to BE that person. The one who rushes headlong into battle to save others. A symbol of courage and integrity. And usually the town’s biggest softy.

It’s these deity fueled Invocations that give Celestial Shields the tools to be a hero in every area. The profession originates with the See’er people of Garuda and all the Celestial Shield schools reside within there area. Each of these schools has the same curriculum but centers around a different Pangool god. Almost always the one closest to them.

This is for one simple but important reason. The Pangool gods, unlike most, don’t reside on the mortal plane. Contact with them can only be made at their personal temples. How many Pangool gods are not even the See’er know, because all their temples haven’t been recovered yet. Currently, seven temples have been discovered which make up the 7 distinct Invocations they possess.

Celestial Shield Invocations

  • Engolum – Hardiness & Iron Grip
  • Tiurakh – Extreme Luck
  • Takhar – Deflect/Reflect Damage
  • Lagan – Heighten Senses & Reaction Time

Swordsfall

Creator and Author of Swordsfall. He's a longtime omni-nerd who grew up during the classic days of Toonami, TechTV, and Transformers. However, as a black man in the hobby, he found himself longing for more stories that told the adventures of people that looked like him. Creating Swordsfall has not only been an effort to be the change he wanted to see but also as his own personal journey.

    1. Exceedingly rare. At this point you’ve been training for 16 to 18 years. After doing combat for that a little cutting is no big deal. You’ve broken some bones in training at least once by this point. Celestial Shields are built tough. Think if we had a school for US Marines or British SAF that taught liberal arts as hard as battle tactics and fighting styles.
