Corey "Blade" Xavier by SH9DOW Corey "Blade" Xavier by SH9DOW
My first go at the alien armor!!!!!!!! The helmet is based off of the space helmet in the movie, and I made the armor myself, and it is based off of a mix of the exosuit (that giant robot thing that kicks ass!) and the design of their exoskeletons.

Now to Corey... ehem, I mean "Blade" <air quote>. The nickname came from a reputation among the humans for his apparent obsession with blades and knives, and Corey... well, likes it. Whether he is obsessed or not with them is beside the fact that he is actually a very talented expert in knives and CQB. He is also very animated, and enjoys expressing himself and being different. Because of this, he paints his armor since day one, and decorates it with words, pictures, and emblems. In the picture, he has a skull on his arm plate, the alien emblem on his right chest, some random alien symbol on his left chest, and flames painted on his flanks. On the back, he has a scratched picture of an alien yelling or roaring. This picture especially, is his callsign, and he will even put it on his helmet on a few occasions. His rebellious nature originates from his youth, being he is the equivelant of an undergrad college student, so he is experimentive, adventurous, and looking to be more independent.

His knife locations are given, and I gave a picture of a blade he made special for himself, and a diagram of his assasin's knife. It is activated by a twist-and-flick switch on his helmet, which sends a signal to the transmitter, which activates the battery, which moves the knife into position. This all happens in less than a millisecond (thank you electricity). He simplifies this device later, but for now, he just wanted the knife so he could give one last surprise if he got captured. He would put his hands on his like he was surrendering, and the rest is history.

Meet Corey, the animated, iconoclastic alien from D9.

I doubt they'd have knives, and they don't seem particularly smart without their leadership class; otherwise, this is awesome! I wish there was more art/ designs for the Poleepkwa, we never really see much of their culture beyond them living in captivity.

Actually, the "engineer" class does show signs of intelligence (they believe that is what Christopher was), so Corey is still possible. And the knives were taken from the humans (not alien knives; Corey just made his own modifications). They at least have machetes, being one is chopping meat with it in the movie, so I wouldn't be surprised if they found a few knives lying around.

Anyways, this story has unfortunately long been abandoned, but I'm glad you found some interest. For now, Corey is a lost character :cries:

There does need to be more Poleepkwa art!

Aw, damnit!

How come? Lost interest? No support? Never got around to it, and so eventually just abandoned it? All of the above?

Those are pretty common reasons, I think.

The story is :D

Corey's just a side character to this crap story I made a while back. I might make a more down-to-Earth one later, but it's in the recycling bin for now.
