Sort of dragged this one, it could have been finished quite faster but i had so many things to do oh well.
here is a bit of the synopsis about this character

“The Broken Blade”

Much like Blides, his whole life is shrouded in mistery. Araam rememberes that when he joined Hyrca was already serving Etallah, making him much older than Araam but also the oldest element on the current Royal Guard. But his personality wasn’t the best. Thats why Araam was always the proeminent one, due to his capabilities and knowledge.
Like Blides, Hyrca is very reserved and does not utter a single word. He wields a broken sword, hence the epithet. According to scriptures it is a very old and very ancient sword, that, once again according to legends and scriptures it was on Amaldan before the forge of the 4 weapons.
His brute strenght allows him to wield the sword with a fast speed. Few are the one who saw Hyrca in battle, but those who did retired their weapons and never wielded a sword afterwards, those ones few enough lucky to survive on the same battlefield as he did.
Needless to say none fought him in the tournament, and hence was set aside and Raziel gave him the position after studying him in the Marble Tower Library and the Royal Amaldan Library.

Hyrca trained many, but his top students turned out to be Martien, Ivor and Araam. Some believe that before joining the Royal Guard of Amaldan he trained a very promising warrior named Baterius, that had been blinded by a dragon at a young age, and had to train him to use his inner sight to fight."

im off to start working on Blides as i begin work animating some pigeons :P

Fabulous design and execution. Could have had a bit more battle damage but still amazing piece.
