Ixion Maurlino by Ageaus Ixion Maurlino by Ageaus
Hailing from a village in the northern highlands, he was raised by a military order after werewolves murdered his parents and destroyed his village. The order taught him how to survive on his own, and told him of his family’s fate, and the horrors plaguing his world. He devoted himself to slaying those horrors, earning a reputation for being hotheaded and recklessly brave. After completing his training he separated from the order, and searched for more enemies to slay, and answers for his parentage. Warned never to be without his mighty evil-repelling axe; Moonbane, he set of with it to cleanse the land his way.

In his travels his deeds reached the ears of Sigismund Velant, who contracted him to aid him in killing the great vampire baron, Dimitri kohns, under who’s thumb their world was suffering. In the service of the half demon, he fought long and bravely against waves undead, vampires of the strigoii and moroii species and countless other horrors issuing from the swamps of Zederza. He even faced down the dread vampire lord, alone, with nothing but his holy axe by his side.

His name is Ixion Maurlino.

Oh boy another veteran getting a facelift, the sketch is from early 2012, so if it looks wonky, this is why. His older iterations can be found in my gallery, at one point he was a fire user, then a mershark, until he settled down and became a supporting character in :iconmerrowsong: and my storyline. That axe is very important to his character and he uses it as his main weapon. It can slay undead, werewolves and vampires, without the need for stakes or holy symbols. He also carries silver knives and holy water for things escaping the reach of his axe.

His design has a few influences - Castlevania, Magic the gather's Innistrad block and other things I'm sure.

Also for the hell of it: [link] I kept playing this while working on him.

Ixion, Velant and the art are all owned by me, :iconageaus:

It's nice to see one who doesn't have to turn into anything to be interesting.

Nothing against that, just… you know.

It always helps!  It's just better when lycanthropy isn't the only interesting thing about lycanthropes.
