Obviously, when I said Bary is coming very soon, I meant not even 24 hours later.

Okay, I can't believe I did it. The final frontier. The last dossier. I DID IT! All twelve members of Semper Fi are now officially done and designed, yeah! Now, let me have a brief moment to dance around the room like a loon.

Meet Bary, the original zodiac sign of Pisces ('bary' is actually an anagram from the Czech word for that). He was the one character developed the least in the original lineup thanks to the fact that he was the last mascot to rotate, meaning he wouldn't appear until the friggin' year two thousand and twenty two. So I had a bit of a blank slate to fill, which was surprisingly fun. I took the general idea from the original - a tattooed badass that possesses one of the most laid back, coolhead personalities you can find in a character. He's also positively ancient (at least compared to other characters on the lineup, he's a few times older than some of them) and bit of a specialist, usually diving for old ships and treasures with Artifacts hidden among them.

Thanks to that, lot of his ops are solo exploration. When at home, he shares the tank with Rose, so he's the one actually spending the most time around the team's slightly... biologically challenged... "member".

He's also one of the few exclusively aquatic animals to appear as an anthro (which is sad, because I fell in love with drawing those feet), because their evolution is a bit more zigzaggy. There's also a lot from the ocean that the big blue deep likes to keep a secret (what happens in Atlantic stays in Atlantic... minus the rum). Bary being all touchy-feely... well... at least feely with the landlubbers is one hell of an exception.

Dossier 12 (out of 13) / Completed files:
I. Lambert - Flameheart
II. Vartan - Stormrider
III. Jonas & Quinn - Equilibrium
IV. Rupert - Nightseer
V. Sara - Ironwill
VI. Virginia - Wrathtamer
VII. Norbert - Timekeeper
VIII. Scorpius - Skyraider
IX. Colby - Brighteyes
X. Rose - Nomadsoul
XI. Lothar - Youngspirit
XII. Bary
XIII. [????]

Bonus Round:
1) Ethan
2. Tessa - Coming soon
3. Morris

And since this is a bit of a sayonara to these huge dossier files (each can be actually printed in the original banner resolution - 0.5x2 damn meters), I decided to finally go back and fix poor Lothar's legs up. He's all fine now.

All twelve members of Semper Fi will get printed as bookmarks now. Yay!

your welcome : D

So, Lambert is the former Aries sign
Vartan is the former Taurus sign
Jonas and Quinn are the Gemini sign
Rupert is probably
 the former Cancer sign (?)
is the former Leo sign
Virginia is t
he former Virgo sign
Norbert is the former Libra sign
Scorpius is the former Scorpio sign
Colby is the daughter of the former Sagittarius sign
Rose is the former Capricorn sign
is the former Aquarius sign
and Bary is the former Pisces sign
So the mysterious number 13 is probably related to Ophiuchus, right? Just guessing :D
c-t-elder Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Yap, you go it pretty much right! Except that Colby IS the former Sagittarius, not the daughter.
The additional three characters, Colby's dad included, have nothing to do with the zodiac part anymore, as they were created specifically for the comic.

As for the Serpentbearer... hee hee hee *mine is an evil laugh* Let's just say that has been transferred into the comic as well x)

Rozhodně nejlepší anthro rybovitý obratlovec, co jsem kdy viděla. A nejhustější jsou nohy!
c-t-elder Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Já anthro rybovitých obratlovců moc neviděl. K mému hlubokému zármutku. Furt samí hadi a tak. Hrozná škoda, žraloci jsou cool. Ale ani kosatky nebo delfíni nejsou k zahození (ano, vyrostl jsem na Zachraňte Willyho).

Dík. Musím ho někdy nakreslit v pohybu :)

c-t-elder Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Thank you!

Awesome! and really interesting way the feet looks
c-t-elder Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Well, technically speaking, it's pretty much a human foot with deformed fingers/fins. One of the rare examples of me having a good idea :)
ThomasBlack1 Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It looks great
rebelwolfchris Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2013
Oh, nice concept indeed! Great job here, love the sharp angles, the tail and the fins!
c-t-elder Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Well, there's nothing duller than a dull shark, after all :)
