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.
Luka was always somewhat of a mystery to me and I could never really get a grasp on her personality, her role in the group, and especially her looks. As a teenager, I had almost exclusively drawn men (mostly because of my Dragon Ball Z and Mortal Kombat “roots”), and woman served as an enigma to me, with their curvy figures and typically striking facial features; sadly, it wasn’t until I was in my 20’s when I finally started to draw female characters, but truth be told, I still don’t feel it’s a current strength. The only thing I had truly created about her had to do with concept ideas of her involvement with her culture (as a type of “guardian princess”), how she was betrayed by some of her people and put into an “hallucination prison,” and a short story about Yenen touching down on her planet, finding and freeing her after a few different events, and then the final battle on Katu, where Yenen and Luka face off against a pair of twins bent on creating utter chaos on Katu – which at this point, Luka is also supposed to learn how to harness her Buntaien abilities correctly. Currently, Luka’s origin story is still very much the same, but altered a little bit to accommodate the new look and history of the planet and other changes.
