Bloodhound of Steel by Branded-Curse Bloodhound of Steel by Branded-Curse
The ever so talented :icontreybor: strikes again and brings to us this piece of sheer awesomness! :dance:

Vigil, born with royal blood in her veins, a princess ment to rule.
But destiny had other plans and she turned heroine, using her immense telekinetic powers for good.
And so the royal from the distant future declared herself the present's protector.
But every action, good or bad, causes a reaction. And sometimes good deeds lead to bad things.
So it came that Vigil one day freed the humans of another dimension from slavery by a tyrannic super computer. But right before its final shut down the mechanical despot created its masterpiece:
Nejil - a cybernetic femme fatale, programmed to hunt down the one who caused her master's demise.
Being capable of traveling through dimensions herself, tracking down Vigil wherever she goes, there seems to be no place to hide from the vicious Nejil.
Or is it that Vigil doesn't want to hide in the first place, knowing all too well that innocents would pay the price for it?

And here you see Nejil, ambushing Vigil as she tries to travel through a portal to another destination.
Yet again the two engage in battle. Who will emerge the victor? The blue-blooded heroine or the cold-blooded cyborg?

Vigil belongs to :iconkostmeyer:
Nejil belongs to me! :iconbranded-curse:

Wow, what a great picture! Thanks for commissioning a picture featuring my character BC! Nejil is a great character - I love the background story and I'm sure we can find a use for her. The only thing I don't really get is the name - does it mean anything? Anyway, I really must get back to those Vigil Villain pictures - expect Nejil art soon!

Thank you, I'm glad you like her! And I can't wait to see her drawn in your style! :excited:
As for your question about her name, there's actually something special to it and yes, it does mean something :nod:
I wanted her name to sound similar to Vigil and "neji" is the japanese word for "screw" :D

What do you mean? That bad? :noes:
Screw like the tool, not as in to screw someone, of course.

Why is she named after a screw? Seems a bit odd! Not bad... just strange! (and no, I didn't think you meant the other screw! lol!)

It's a long story ^^;
I wanted something mecha-related and neji fits very well to make an easy Vigil-like name.

Yeah - kind of sounds Vigil-ish - I wondered if that was the reason. Still seems a bit odd though - and naming her after a small metal pin makes it even more so! Not a major thing!

I just checked once more!
It can also mean something screwed together :-)

There always is a chance I translate it wrong ^^;
Could as well be that it's a regular term for mecha-things.
Or that it stands for nega as in negative, since the japanese don't have a real "G"

Heh heh! Are you actually entering the contest or just making Nejil a legit character you intend to use full time? :P Very nice commission man, Nejil looks very imposing here. She sure likes showing off her power against Vigil it seems. :O
