Ru'fiel and Koryr by Aikurisu Ru'fiel and Koryr by Aikurisu
Maybe I’m having too much fun right now… >_>

Concept art of the two smaller blades Arden Wraithsbane wields.

Largest between them is of nelri origin; a former gift to one of the younger princes out of King Raminus IV and Queen Alusia, after he showed particular interest for nelri craftsmanship in Elshanae. Its maker is sadly unknown, although its name remains knowledgeable on the lips of anyone who dare call themselves of Asurian blood: ‘Ru’fiel’. It was handed to Kashynastrae’s palace treasury after the prince’s passing several centuries ago, yet eventually a young King Athirelik, in strange generosity, gave it to its new master, Arden.

The second blade, ‘Koryr’, of Zerran craftsmanship, was designed to imitate the Ru’fiel as its partner for Arden’s preferred two-bladed fighting style. Although its design is hardly as artistic as its companion blades, Koryr’s distinctive dark alloy is associated with an elusively rare material deep in the desert that drinks light instead of reflecting it, and some claim is capable of parrying magical attacks by absorbing their energies. Whether this magic dissipates over time or becomes stored within the blade is unknown to all but Arden.

Anyhoo, the third blade's illustration will definitely be next... tomorrow, maybe. =P

Love the dark metal and purple of the larger of the blade, but I love purple so I'm bias. :D

I'll take the sword.

That might be a little difficult if Arden's still wielding it. =P

Lol, true. I could probably convince her on letting me borrow it.

Doh! Sorry about that. I was trying to remember if he was male or female.
