Kaiel/Kefal Transformation (Throwback)

The origins of “Legends of Saviors” lies within a Dragon Ball Z/Dragon Ball GT and Mortal Kombat amalgamated fan-fiction I had acted out with friends, wrote documents on, created a D&D campaign based on the lore, and crafted a short game made in RPGMaker.  I still have drawings from those days, and thought some people might be interested in what was going on almost two decades ago.

Originally – and still very similar to the current lore – Kaiel and Kefal were both technically two souls sharing the same body.  At most times, Kaiel could be in control of himself and his slight temper, and would be able to function as a normal person.  However, Kefal would typically take over and alter Kaiel’s body and mind whenever in the presence of someone or something on a high “Normg Frequency” level (which, within the Saro Perspective, is commonly the rare creatures/people that wasn’t affected by the Normg Virus during the end of the Perspective’s Primal Phase, and are still technically immortal).  At one point in the story, Kefal has been awoken so many times, that Kaiel is no longer able to contain him and control himself, therefore the Buntaiens decides to seal him away, temporarily, in one of the many rooms of the RuMa Temple of Par’N until they can figure out a way to help quell the demon within.  As it was originally, basically the same as it is now, some of the other Buntaiens find out that was a special and rare material that could be found on the planet Jagg would be able to be created into a type of jewelry (known as the “Bracelet of Raw”), to be worn to control the urges of Kefal.  As I said before, most, if not all, of the lore above is still going to be within the end product, including many other details I would like to discuss here now, but spoilers would be aplenty; perhaps later!

Saro Perspective | Proto Phase

The cosmic laws and entities of the ST’RCK-5 multi-macroverse are both similar and alien to our own.  There are planets and suns, with various types of life on some of them, but the ways these bodies work is not always exactly the same as ours.

Continuing from the last post about “Perspectives,” each one revolves around a giant entity known simply as a “God Star,” which acts as both a center of the ST’RCK-5, and as a “prison,” of sorts, for the contained Aryk Perspective; which is a 6th, hidden Perspective sealed away, for the purpose of the experiment that STARCK and the Kay Crystal devised.  Iif any of this sounds confusing or unfamiliar, watch this VIDEO!

This diagram is during the 2nd Historic Phase (also dubbed the “Proto Phase”), which takes place after the Normg Virus of Mortality has affected the entire Perspective, making all flora, fauna, Alpha Species, and overall cosmic down to microscopic function follow a mortal way of existing (where survival, decay, and death are now realities, whereas during the Primal Phase, they originally were not).  Specially talking about the Saro Perspective, 4 of the 5 Alpha Species began to radically alter their people and cultures by cultivating the different types of Kay Material spread both across and within their native planets, and creating different technology with it (of each would be themed depending on which sun their planet revolved around).  One could say that during the end of the Proto Phase, most of the Alpha Species were living within their own “golden ages,” however, all of that would soon change, for each of them.

Yenen’s Buntaien Weapon Model

Concepts of the 3 “levels” of Yenen’s Buntaien Weapon

Within the RPG titles of the “Legends of Saviors” are many planets with different creatures, people, cultures, and histories that will all have a unique and distinct look from one another, but following a similar style.  I hope to create models that reflect exactly what it is I’m looking for, and create a consistent look with everything.

Each Buntaien of the Saro Perspective can, eventually at one point, be able to summon a level 1 version of their distinct weapon, and with enough training and/or while facing a strong enough enemy, they can eventually have it transform to two stronger levels; which in turn endows them with stronger versions of their Essence abilities – and even new ones!  As for Yenen’s weapon, which is known as the “Kumojahitii Blade” (pronounced as “Koo-mo-ja-he-tee”), which in First Tongue roughly means “Justice Brought Forth By Light,” is a short, thick bastard-type sword.  Most of the blade itself, within its final form, will be of a hard crystal-like material that can split apart from each other, and be used to fight against enemies in various ways.  The main Essence behind this weapon is usually in the form of different types of lightning, which (again, in the level 3 version) will course through the various spheres and can charge up the blade for stronger attacks.

*As a side note, all Buntaien weapons, in all of their forms/levels, are not necessarily totally material, and only exist while they are being held/used by their “masters;” otherwise, the weapon disappears if it falls out of the user’s hands, tossed away, etc.
