Scylla Knight Picture

This is a fan art about Japanese manga/anime Saint Seiya drawn by Masami Kurumada. My version is very different. The story happens in Greek mythological era. When the Olympian gods fought the Titans, each god formed an army of knights. Hephaestus created all the armors for them. Athena only had 48 knights (according to the number of ancient constellations). When the war ended, half of Athena's army was dead. The survivors became rogue knights because their service was no longer required. Just like the original Greek version, Athena chose to mingle with other gods on mount Olympus - leaving humans at the mercy of mischievous gods and dangerous monsters. Each ex-Athena's knight then handed down their armor and power to their descendants or relatives. Although the war against the titans had ended, people still needed savior because sometimes Olympian gods caused havoc. Hence, the knights were still in business of saving lives.

Praxis is my original character. He is the Scylla Knight, one of Poseidon's 7 generals. Poseidon asked Hephaestus to create Scylla Armor which was inspired by Scylla - sea monster with four eyes, six long necks, twelve tentacles. Poseidon picked Praxis as a knight to control the monster. Praxis stations the monster in a narrow channel of sea to attack any passing ships. Praxis is a loner, rarely mingling with other knights except when Poseidon gathers them all.
