    Default Destati Character Art

    Art for our protagonists of this silly fanfiction located here ; generally I'll update this gallery when new worlds are released. Most of this art has been commissioned or traded by myself or by my friends! Please don't use them ;n;


    As it stands, I'll be posting a variety of art over the course of the next few weeks! Character concepts, Nomura-style artwork, commissions and the like!

    Suihei (すいへい) is the protagonist of the Destati Series, as well as a Keyblade Wielder. Jovial and altruistic, to the appraising eye, she appears to be much like any teenager. Her vivacious approach to life carries over to adversity. Expressive and sharp of tongue, she holds little qualms with speaking her mind on certain matters, leading to her being a rather open book.


    Prior to the loss of her home, Twilight Town, she was assaulted by peculiar dreams, culminating to an awakening of the Keyblade on a Night of Fate. As heir to a legacy thought lost in the sands of time, she often struggles with what it means to be a Keybearer. She holds contradicting feelings towards her desire to return home, and the wanderlust she’s held since she’s been a small child.

    Spoiler Spoiler: Suihei Default - 16 Show


    Noxic ( ノックス ) is the Deuteragonist of Destati. A rebellious fighter with a chip on his shoulder, he was the product of an experiment that sought to return lost Hearts from Darkness. Bitter, caustic, and cocky in equal measures, he holds a phenomenal amount of negativity within his Heart. With a tongue as sharp as a whip, he appears to be the farthest from a friendly creature, yet this is just a veneer for the insecurities he feels about his nature. He fears plunging back into the abyss, and so he clings to what little Light remains in his Heart like a vice.


    His fiery demeanor scalds and blinds those caught unaware. A born renegade, he has the propensity of solving his problems by way of his fists and smacktalk alike. Intimately familiar with Darkness, he proves more than capable of providing support to the team with a blend of buffs that draw on his own inner strength, control of Dark Creatures and reckless close combat techniques. Feeling as if the Worlds being engulfed have something to do with a woman he despises, he decides to travel with Suihei, if only to combat that very woman's madness born schemes. While loathe to share his motives, he eventually comes to think of his companions as true friends.

    Spoiler Spoiler: Noxic - Default - 17 Show


    Nyx Noir ( ニックス ) is the Tritagonist of Destati, and a Nobody. Reticent and logical, he appears to hold a dry wit and an astounding amount of curiosity. To his allies, he is a great degree of emotional support. Far from reluctant, his curiosity and morbid humour oft-times works against them, but his ability to act objectively warrants no small degree of respect. Phenomenally intelligent, he is a Master of the schools of White and Black magic.


    In eons past, he worked beneath an Organization ; when they were dismantled, his purpose as a tool found itself lacking, leading to him exploring the Worlds for knowledge while sequestering himself from humanity. Tight-lipped about this, he initially seems more interested in exploring chunks of his missing life as a Somebody. While filled with a great hatred of the Keyblade, he seems to know a significant amount on the legendary artifact, though he appears reluctant to part with it. In order to sate his curiosity, he opted to travel with Suihei and Noxic, unaware of the effect they would hold on his demeanor.

    Suihei reminds me a lot of Sora with both how she looks and how she has a taste for adventure.

    Whoa. I must've gotten so used to seeing cringeworthy OC's that I forgot that they could look really great too. This trio's probably one of the best-designed ones I've seen in a while. The art quality itself is excellent and their designs look like something you'd naturally find in the KH universe. Oh, and I love Suihei's Keyblade. It was called Kingfisher, right? Something about the sleek-looking blade and that bright blue on black (which reminds me of KH1's logo, actually) just really works together.

    Speaking of Suihei, while I was reading your fic, I was a bit worried that she'd look like a female copy/paste/small edit version of KH1 Sora. I'm really glad to see that this isn't the case, since her color scheme, clothes, and overall appearance are distinct and unique.

    Haha, yeah, I mean to draw parallels between their personalities and situations, but there are a few differences that I just haven't gotten around to writing about because I've been slacking​ on the story with how busy my life has been the last few months.

    No no, I understand the worries completely! They're warranted, given the problems that can crop up when writing a scenario meant to draw parallels on the character. While I'll be the first to admit that her design was originally based on Sora ( her second outfit is literally his KH2 one modified ; spoilers on that one though ), Hyuei really drew out her unique design elements and KHChi helped with refining a unique outfit all her own. And yeah, s'called Kingfisher! Neo-Kingdom Key is what the guy who owned the design called it, but it didn't exactly flow as well when I tried to write it? So my friend helped me whip up another, easier name for it.

    I really appreciate the compliments though! I have a lot​ more art just sitting around, so keep an eye open for this thread!

    A collection of concept art for a variety of Worlds that the trio travels to over the Course of Destati. This is kind of spoilerific, and most of Sui / Nyx's are done roughly! I opted to just slap them all together in collages, though the full resolutions are set aside somewhere on my computer!

    A part of me wants to post them all together, but I think doing them separately might help with things-

    My friend kind of flurped with the complexion, so don't mind this one too much-

    Probably my favorite designs of the Trio ; Atlantis!

    " Whoa... " didn't do the sheer feelings that bubbled in her Heart justice. If Suihei had ever held the opportunity to tell someone how absolutely amazing the sight of an Underwater City was, she was sure that she'd be too bubbly to tell them anything of importance! Her eyes swept across everything with the ravenous hunger of someone that wanted to see more, even as the denizens of the city gave her and her peculiar companions a few strange looks. Not only was she dressed like a native, but it seemed to draw more than a few pairs of eyes to the little ent

    Milo was right beside her, looking just as gobsmacked as she was. It was as if all of his life's work was in front of him. Everything that he had ever worked for proven as the truth instead of a wild chase of a madman. Excitement danced in two pairs of brown eyes, and Suihei tried her best not to bound ahead. It'd probably draw suspicion.

    "This place is beautiful Nyx!" She squealed, whirling on her bare feet in order to address the feline. For everything that it was worth, he seemed to hold the composure that his companions seemed to lack in spades.

    Spoiler Spoiler: Suihei - The Lost Empire Show



    No songs! No bloody singing! That alone will have our usually sour rabbit hopping in place in excitement. Then combine that with flying ships with proper firepower behind them? Hoh-yeah. Even if the whole . . . not being an Atlantean was proper obvious. So maybe his colours didn’t quite match, and maaaybe he is a giant walking talking rabbit – with a curious crimson crystal. All which led to some, well, staring. Lots of staring. But they are quite accepting people, so once they got over the whole dark being thing, it wasn’t too bad!

    Spoiler Spoiler: Noxic - The Lost Empire Show

    " What're you looking like that for? " Suihei's expression knitted into something of abject confusion. Realistically she shouldn't have been for a shock - but she'd had little to no experience with magic prior to that night, and while she had an endless assortment of questions, it seemed that all of them fell flat on her tongue. Torn between sweeping Nyx up into her arms to hold him with bonecrushing force, and staring blandly, she honestly couldn't do much in the face of this.

    " Because nobody ever suspects the cat, Suihei Something. " His neutral expression seemed overtaken with the faintest hint of a smug grin, crafted as if to laud his superiority in the form of transmutation over Noxic, who was grumbling one thing or another about show-off felines. " Now if you will excuse me, I will investigate further. "

    The smuggest of cats, really.
    Spoiler Spoiler: Nyx - The Lost Empire Show


    In the midst of an Adventure, a burgeoning trio slowly begins to put their differences aside to face the threat of the Heartless.

    Of course, facing the problem of lying to Atlanteans about their origin was . . . probably the more difficult things that they could've done. Not that it worked entirely. The King, though allowing their presence, reminded them of the fact that keybearers were not to interfere in the affairs of the Worlds, revealing what little knowledge he held on the subject of the Keyblade that had been passed down from Monarch to Monarch throughout the centuries.

    While it is certainly a foreboding omen about the Keyblade that leaves Suihei shaken, they continued traversing the World.

    Fortunately, they're not the only transients seeking the secrets of Atlantis. A group of explorers, seeking the lost city, are given guidance by a mysterious young woman by the name of Kida. Milo, being the only one who can read the Atlantean script, acts as a translator.

    Between discovering secrets, battling the Heartless, and seeking the Keyhole of Atlantis, the trio manage to find themselves under even more intense scrutiny once the King is murdered. "The affairs of Another World", it seemed, had caught up with them.

    In an attempt to prove themselves innocent, Nyx opted to act as a diplomat, offering to discover who could've killed the King in exchange for a brief window of diplomatic immunity. Joining once more with the group of explorers, they eventually manage to peel back the secrets of the Atlantean people, and discover the ultimate treasure of the World, the Heart of Atlantis.

    Commander Rourke, who was overtaken by mindless greed and sought to eradicate the Atlanteans through use of the Heartless attempted to take off with the treasure that stabilized the underwater city. With Noxic utilizing one of the peculiar flying machines, the trio manage to catch up just in time to stop Rourke from escaping Atlantis completely. they came out on top and defeat the man once he becomes a crystalline Heartless himself.

    I hope you guys weren't expecting only friendship friendly Protagonists. Here we have Norwin, who takes on a more interesting, complex role and would've primarily gotten a spotlight in Act 1.5 / 2 as our foil to Suihei. I decided to post all three attires together, as she undergoes a really neat outfit change over the series. As she was conceptualized as the 'Riku-like' figure, my friend opted to make the sacrifice of throwing her into Riku's terrible KH1 outfit.



    Norwin
    is an Antagonist turned Anti-Hero of Destati. An abrasive young woman with a Mastery of Sorcery, she is a descendant of one of the Seven Lights that participated in the Second Keyblade War of eons past. Trained by the Final Keybearer of the Realm of Light, she is a proud, stubborn young lady who proves self-reliant. Because of the shame her Uncle held over his cowardly nature in abandoning his comrades in a war but a few centuries prior, he pushed Nor's abilities to the fullest extent that he could manage. Filled with great expectations due to her being trained by her Uncle and bearing the Eyes of the Seer, she was sorely disappointed to discover that the Keyblade would not come to her, despite her years being trained to harness this Light.

    Following her Uncle's death, she found herself stepping.into the mantle of Keybearer with no guidance, and took it upon herself to travel the Worlds in order to research the sudden infestation of Darkness that threatened to overtake it. Along this journey, she found herself brought beneath the wing of a man that made pacts with Heartless - promised answers to learning as to why she failed to Awaken to the Keyblade. Along the way, she crossed paths with a young woman and her two companions who, for all intents and purposes, possessed the Keyblade.

    While initially she may have been reluctant towards making allies, she eventually finds herself drawn into the eternal conflict between Light and Dark.

    Norwin is a beauty! I absolutely love the final version of her! And the first one is quite a resemblance to Riku with her outfit; of course, I love it, because it's the coolest twist I've ever seen of it! My oh my, the pointy ears make me think of Xehanort a little. Oh and don't get me started out freaking amazing and out of this world 'The Lost Empire - Trinity' photo is. I love seeing Noxic, Suihei, and Nyx together like that! I really like Noxic the most with his scythe! Seriously, it's really cool seeing what they look like too as I read along the snippets you show us. :D

    I think I actually might have a few trinity pictures with them together. But getting a trio can get a smidge expensive, haha! Norwin is definitely one of my favourite characters of the scenario. My friend ended up whipping her up and she has such an amount of sass to her that its pretty ridiculous. I can't wait to get around to actually building her up through a bit of writing. The pointy ears are because she's actually of elven lineage or something akin to it. My friend ended up making an original world to go with it ; lots of magic, lots of fruits, lots of archery and stuff. Maybe one day I'll get all of the cast doodled together. ;w;

To the appraising eye, she appears like any teenager ; bubbly and energetic, her vivacious approach to life in the face of adversity has given her the ability to remain optimistic no matter the odds.

    While I never expected Nox to be so-- expressive, it turns out that Hyuei has an amazing talent of allowing a personality genuinely shine through. As Noxic is a short-tempered, explosive sort that has a tendency of feeling more than showing, these fit quuuite well.
