CHOW #353 :: Fallen Angel of the Broken Gate :: FINALS
Character of the Week #353
Fallen Angel of the Broken Death Gate
Deadline - Sunday, June 1st 10PM GMT
It pains the higher gods to be forced to send, a once loyal guardian, to the abyss. There is no forgiveness for the divine which breaks the laws and the only mercy they receive is an eternity of servitude in the underworld. Forever trapped, as warrior servants of the vile death god. There is a broken gate which the death god sends the fallen to stand guard, so that none of the higher gods may enter and try to kill him. The angels are unable to escape and have no choice but to serve.
The fallen angel's wings bare the scars of ill treatment and slowly become discolored. Their once beautiful complexion is now cover in wounds from being beaten by the minions of death. And they are forced to use weapons where the hilts/handles stab into their hands when held.
This week you are to design one of these angels which is forsaken to defend the gate.

"I will not serve the human. I'll cover the world with ruins, flood it with blood and tears; I'll warp what's beautiful, make penurious what is pure, batter down whats grand. I make all the evil I can, and I'd like to augment it to the infinity. I'm all hate, nothing else than hate. If you, human, would knew the depth, the height, the width of this hate, you would have the widest intelligence among all the intelligences that have been from the begin of the world, even if all those intelligences would be united in just one... I'm the Lier since the principle. I'm the Assassin Born. I'm the Fallen One"

The legend of Amos, the first angel
In the beginning the higher gods joint their powers and Amos was created.He was the first and mightiest angel of the high heavens.He was the most powerful being the gods had ever dared to create and his birth was supposed to mark the rise of the heavens and the downfall of the death god.As he was brought to life the minions of death cried out in horror and fear.Even the death god himself knew that Amos posed a threat to his existence.
After their creation the gods rested.Amos,equipped with the golden sword,forged in a thousand suns, made haste for the Broken Gate to challenge the god of death himself.
On his way Amos came upon a golden maze, which he entered.After a year passed, Amos still had not found the exit.After five years his mind was broken.After ten years the maze was festering from within Amos own body.His wings were rotten,his sword blunt and his eyesight extinguished.
The god of death, in his cunning had created a living maze without end.The walls evermoving,creating new corridors and weaving new paths.Oh how the high gods wept when they woke from their rest.Their mightiest champion had fallen without striking down a single foe.
Even to this day Amos is wandering the endless corridors of Broken Gate,a mocking example for the high gods hubris.

Well here it is. His weapon is bound to him by evil, and the razor sharp bars surrounding his hands cut him with even the slightest movement. I hope you like it, thanks for looking!

As angels are known for carrying the misery of the world on their shoulders, they never smile, ever and have an overall pretty sh*tty infinite life. So this one went on strike, disobeing the gods, asking something more than just being allowed to shut the f*ck up as a salary. What a mistake he did, Marlboros god of air and wind, Monsantos god of earth and harvest and Britishpetroleomus god of sea, united their forces to throw the rebel down the Death's kingdom, and would now on serve as a guardian for eternity. His job is to protect Death's kingdom from the strike of the gods. His dream is becoming true ! He'll now be able to kick his ex-boss's ass, the same that made his life a living hell, and punished him when he realized it. He's glad to be here. He doesn't sleep but if he could he would be pleased to wake up every morning. Once he landed there he wanted to erase what he was, cutting off a wing to use as a toga, replacing the traditional one and preventing him fom flying (that's angel stuff). So there he is, excited, waiting kick some gods'ass.
SKETCHBOOK any crits are welcome

Unfortunately I was occupied all week and couldn't participate properly. For not participating in the WIP forums I sincerely apologise (the loss is all mine really). I hope I didn't break any rules. But I made myself a promise that I will participate no matter what. So with whatever time I had today I decided that it would be a at least a good exercise in trying to make something presentable while having to work under a time constraint.
So this is my guy. I imagined he was left for dead in the deep abyss, near the broken gate. His mouth was sealed shut and his hands were chained to these huge spike balls. The Death God thought it would be a good laugh, But our dude had other things in mind...

...she grabbed his arm and whispered "run". They ran past all the lost souls wandering in circles around the Edge of the Hell. She picked him up, spread her wings and flew him high up past the black heavy fog until they saw bright light coming from above. He noticed a tear rolling down her cheek. "Adriane?" he asked "Is it you?". She did not replied and mumbled something he could not understand. Suddenly the sky cracked and he got blinded by warm bright beam of light touching his skin, almost like It's reaching out for him trying to pick him up. "Now you are mine!" Demonic voice yelled from bellow. She picked up speed, flew trough the crack and put him on a grassy field. Ground under her shook. Dark tentacles lashed out and wrapped tightly around her legs and dragged her down. She knew there was no coming back. "I still love you!" she yelled as she was dragged down trough the dirt. Then the crack sealed and he never saw her again...
I was always just lurking around and i though it would be fun to finally join all you guys and post something. I really love all your work you posted guys, it's really inspiring!
