Talix Ferro
About 6 ft? (1.8 m?)
About 220 lbs? (99.8 kg?)

Finally made myself a reference sheet for Talix. Much joy.

Talix is a race I made up called knights. Physically, they sorta have this exoskeleton thing goin' on and they resemble suits of armor, thus how they got their name. Their most distinct features are their helmet-like heads fancied up with some spikes or horns and a plume. The torso is very defined, resembling that of a well-built human. Out-of-shape knights have their exoskeletons stretched (for the fatties) or shrunken (for the scrawnies) but overall still keep that well-built look, and yes, they do molt. Think of them as bugs, without actually being a bug.
Their exoskeletons usually take muted earthy or metallic colors while their plumes are sometimes a bit more vibrant. Their eyes glow faintly and also come in a variety of brighter colors. Hands come with three digits and a thumb while their feet don't come with any digits, having a very "boot-like" appearance.

Lore-wise for tabletop roleplay purposes, knights normally live near canyons, mountainous areas, caverns, and deserts and are very in-tune with the element of earth. They're hardy, able to resist sickness, poisons, and exhaustion easily, but they aren't very dexterous and usually fumble with delicate work that requires nimble hands. Knights are usually loyal and fearless and can be quick to make allies with if they share a common goal. Regarding classes, Knights are commonly known to be Fighters, Barbarians, Clerics and sometimes Wizards, while other classes are more rarely seen.

Finally, Talix is about 36 years of age with an average lifespan of a knight being about 200 years. He's generally friendly to those he meets and can be a bit of a klutz. His weapon of choice are a wide variety of sword and shield combos, but occasionally likes a powerful two-handed weapon of either an axe or a sword. He likes magic spells but isn't very good at casting them and often times can be seen reading books on magic. He can be slightly stubborn when performing difficult tasks, however he knows when to quit if things start to get too out of hand or even dangerous. He loves to have a good drink and meal at a tavern with close friends.

Probably very inaccurate with some physical properties regarding their exoskeletons, but hey, it's just fantasy.

If you have any questions regarding Talix or knights, I could maybe answer them.

    OH MY GOSH... I love him. And the whole species.
    It would be cool if depending on region Talix had their appearance inspired by historical armor from difference places.
    If one lived in a snowy climate, it might resemble old Nordic amor. Just an idea, I'd love to see more of this species!

      You mean if knights varied by region? Not Talix hahah. Yeah, I've only drawn one other knight before, so I actually don't have a whole lot of experience with my own race. The other knight is named K'sko, you can find him in my Characters section if you want. But yeah, it'd be interesting considering Talix and K'sko are kinda similar I think. It's their "helmets" that's most difficult for me to make unique. I should get to drawing random knights at some point. <_>
      But thanks. I'm glad you like'em!

        Oop- Yeah, I meant knights in general.
        No problem

    This is a really cool character you have there! What sorts of games do you play as this guy?

    • Link

      Ah, thanks! He takes part in some pretty standard request-board adventures really. There's a separate campaign of another friend of mine where the party is undead, thus I'm an undead Talix. Finally, there was one campaign I GM'd that was reminiscent of the Etrian Odyssey series where I made Talix a supporting NPC.

    I like this sheet a lot. I specifically like that you added in his expressions as you did with him being all grumpy the less clothing he has. Also "Yeah! Work it!" on his back side just really rubs it in and makes his embarrassed frustration all the better.

      Thanks! Heheh yeah, I decided to have some fun with it. I like adding small details like that, or even throw in an easter egg of sorts when I can.
