Description: Large humanoid sparsely layered with chitin plates painted red or blue pattern. Thick dark rubber like skin. Head covered in smooth bone “helmet”, luminous mineral layered eye, double layered “beak” covers mouth.
Origin: With the rise of kaiju and the following alien invasion, the world would be in dire times. Soviet Russia had prepared for an era of nuclear conflict, only to find their nukes useless against creatures who thrived upon the energies of the atom. To make matters worse, America had achieved multiple advances to this new world Russia hadnt, and the creation of Minerva in 1955 by Area 51 truly drove the Soviet Union to indulge in riskier ideas.
Hiring the brilliant scientist, Professor Roman Kurchatov amongst other great Russian minds to study Yamaneon was the first step towards the Soviet Defense Program, The Ul’tra Project. Although the main concept of the project was to probe and test Yamaneon for any exploitable weakness that could disable the current threat, Kurchatov had other ideas. Oddly enough, he always considered himself more “artist than scientist”, thus had a habit of adjusting projects for his own experiments. Those did end with great results, just rarely what the funding wanted. This was no different.
While his peers studied Yamaneon through lead suits and metal instruments, Kurchatov was experimenting on an unknown accomplice via surgically introducing yamaneon particles to specific areas of the body. Many years of mysterious project grew suspicion amongst his superiors and in 1966 his station on Attu Island was investigated. The authorities were expecting Roman Kurchatov to be a possible yanki spy, instead they found him bed ridden, being cared for by an old woman and….a strange large man shaped bone plated creature.
The woman, a friend of the Professor, explained the situation. Kurchatov’s secret experiments on his accomplice lead to incredible mutative adaptions, verging him on inhumanity as “alien” features gradually developed. Unfortunately Kurchatov was not careful and leaking Yamaneon affected his body, resulting in his skeletal structure calcifying his body inside out, currently suffocating his brain. He said he may not die, as Yamaneon generally seems to benefit organisms, and perhaps he may simply go dormant in a boney chrysalis, all his research locked within his sleeping mind. He left one last wish, that his accomplice was to be adopted into the Ul’tra program and trained to use his abilities as he mutated further, becoming a guardian of the Motherland.
Seeing the incredible potential in the subject (and an effective way to compete with America), the Soviet Union respected the slumbering scientist wishes and developed the accomplice into the sole warrior of his kind. Code named “Lone Soldier”, he would become a symbol of Russia’s strength and resilience and a hero to the people.
Personality: Lone Soldier exudes a shield of confidence and unshakeability, appearing as a proud and fearless warrior. Beneath the bravado is an ever calculating mind, studying every detail for combat purpose or simply occupation. This may make him an effective strategist, but he is easily distracted and frusturated by numerous stimulants, thus he can excellently handle a single opponent, but multiple can leave him burnt out. His loyalty to Russia is near absolute, committing to every order, but there can be noticeable unease upon more stressing, morally questionable acts.
|Hi, I'm a self taught (non-professional) artist. I usually draw bizarre alien creatures that I give a story and a world for them to exist in. I play a lot of x box games which influences my art heavily. I hope someday I can get into concept art for games and movies, especially for designing monsters and other odd creatures.|
