Member Exclusive | Raksha Concept Sketch #1

The Children of Xavian

Story Highlights
  • Art by Enmanuel Martinez

When Xavian twisted the world's Elementals into cursed beings known as Wretched Ones, he was just getting started. Trapped Beneath It All, Xavian has created new children to menace Tikor

The Raksha are a monster unlike anything on Tikor. In every physical category, they are nearly unmatched. They reside as part myth, part history, and no one on Tikor wants to find out much of which is which.

Enmanuel Martinez has worked up the first concept sketches of these soul-eating monsters. For the Raksha, I wanted to really capture a monster. A true, bump in the night style monster. But not make them look odd or anything that might defy the imagination. Instead, I want to drip with a sense of weight, the kind of creature that might haunt your dreams.

One of the major things about Raksha is that their skin is more like a carapace, giving them a great deal of physical protection. They were truly designed to deal carnage and wade through the retribution unscathed.

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.
