I decided to recolor and edit an older drawing I submitted a while back. The original is probably 4 or 5 years old, and there were some glaring issues (there are still a few that I didn't want to deal with) that I just had to take care of.
So, these are my two OC's Hiro Xianlong and Shinrei Tenryuusai, the main characters in my story. Both of them were reborn by the Federation as engineered demons (demons are just what people call the creatures with strange adaptations in my story; they are not actually demonic, and in fact can be classified according to genus and species) after their deaths on EDEN Colony.
Their rebirth was accompanied by transference of all (free) known information in the planetary database, and for Hiro, who became a soldier, combat training as well. Both are above what would normally be considered 'master class' in martial arts, and can use any weapon.
Hiro's weapon of choice is an odachi custom engineered according to his specifications, and Shinrei preferred paired weapons -initially she uses butterfly knives (the Chinese kind, not the flippy-switchy kind) with dual hilts, but after they're damaged when she and Hiro first meet she uses double Chinese broadswords.
They are fated to become mates, but are unable to until the later parts of the story.
