Cyber Zettai-Ryouiki: Rory by KayinNasaki Cyber Zettai-Ryouiki: Rory by KayinNasaki
While joking about how I don't have any 'loli'ish characters or characters with terrible injuries, I had the idea for a girl that exhibited Zettai Ryouiki with.... artificial legs instead of stockings. I'm not sure how well I pulled that off, but over all I am very hapy with the picture in general. I ended up working out a character for her. She doesn't fit into any contemporary time in the Brave Earth setting. Instead she exists in it's hazy future. Recently I've been writing fluff on possible space travel and magic driven warping that would spread the setting out into the galaxy. She seemed the perfect fit there! So here's a prototype history and bio for Rory McLochlainn, Starship engineer and amputee.

History: Born in an age of Galatic space travel, Rory was born on earth to a set of loving parents. They lived on an open ranch, which her father purchased upon retiring. Her father was a former spacestation engineer who spent his days of retirement tinkering away at a home-made spaceship. At a young age, Rory took interest in her father's hobby and was often found trying to help him in his shop.

At the age of 10, Rory lost her father, as well as both her legs, when the ship suffered from a fuel explosion. Rory's legs were severly burn and mangled, forcing both legs to be amputated above the knee. While initially devestated, Rory soon rebounded, studying science and engineering. At 12 she recieved neural implants at the base of her stumps, allowing automated prosthetics to be connected. Rory embraced her artifical limbs, leading her to tinker with them, upgrade them and eventually replace them with devices of her own design as she got older. Her thirst for both outerspace and self modification lead her to take many accelerated courses in physics and engineering while still in highschool. The thought of just going up into space was no longer enough for her -- she began studying starships in the hopes of getting a job that would allow her to travel the stars.

Rory, while possessing no formal college education, is highly educated and studied in her chosen fields. She is naturally brilliant and possesses an intuitive understanding of machines and physics.

Personality: Is generally quiet but highly motivated. While not naturally outgoing, she can be very friendly and sociable when engaged in conversation. She tends to be a little sly and sarcastic, but rarely in a truly mean way. She is a bit of an eccentric and can be very silly in the right situations, sometimes lapsing into a very 'hyper' mood. Besides engineering and science, Rory enjoys the feeling of Zero-G, which she tends to enjoy without her artifical legs. She also enjoys music and exercise (which is partially required due to how much time she is willing to spend in Zero-G). As part of exercise and self defense, Rory practices taekwondo. While her form is lacking, her massive leg strength makes it a very dangerous defensive weapon.

Legs: Rory has titanium rods inserted deep within her femurs. The bolts are fused directly with the bone and the bone it's self is reinforced to cope with the added stresses of large mechanical prosthetics. Nerves are bundled and passed through the center of the bolt and are connected to small CPUs for sending and recieving signals. These units are powered by any attacted artificial limbs, which also do the bulk of the actual processing.

Afer her first set of limbs, Rory has worked on constructing and modifying her own from spare parts. Rory's primary set are designed for high performance and have strength that far surpasses normal human legs. This comes at the cost of weight, finesse and endurance. Rory's thigh muscles must contribute to the movement of her heavier than average limbs, which adds to fatigue. Rory's legs also recieve tactile information through Surface Acoustic Wave technology, giving her feeling throughout the entirety of her limbs. This is usually not favored by other users of high performance prothetics due to their nonstandard shape, which can lead to what many people consider 'disturbing' stimuli, such as physical contact deep within their precieved 'phantom limbs'. Rory, due to her comfort with her artificial limbs, can not only tolerate these sensations, but finds them extremely natural. At this point she sees her artifical legs as more of a part of her then her former legs. Her legs are also all significantly taller then what her natural legs were estimated to be.

The legs batteries can sustain a 24 hour charge with modest use, but the batteries can be ran down in as little as an hour under the most intense abuse. Rory possesses other pairs of legs that, while lacking in the extreme strength of her primary pair, can go as long as a week without recharging. Almost as a point though, Rory avoid's prosthetics that resemble real limbs, unless the situation calls for discretion

Edit: Uploaded new version to shrink her hips down. They were kinda big. A lot of that was for stylization, but some people just couldn't get over that. A little work managed to cut that down a bit, but keep the stylized, heavy lower body. An improvement. No need to overdo what can look big without looking wrong.

Nice pic and description, however a 19 year old is in no way "loli". I myself am 17 and I'm not even "loli", it's all about being very underage (in Australia, the legal age is even 16 lol) and looking young and cute. You got the cute part though, nice pic :D

Thanks! Part of the reason I said "loli"-ish, which I admit is still a stretch. Of course, just by the nature of being drawn by me, she has to have big hips or something. x.x

But yeah was mostly thinking about slimmer bodytypes.

Aw thank you. With a lot of real people living life without crazy sci-fi future technology, I suppose there isn't really good reason for a fictional character to not make the most out of things. :)

Have you ever heard of Aimee Mullins. The woman is my hero. You'd like her!

Oh boy, I do love me some TED Talks.

That was very cool, thank you! It's awesome to see her embrace her disability. It most certainly will just be true 'augmentation' within our lifetimes.

I think the old hips looked fine! The difference is barely noticeable. Love her design, though!

It takes a lot of hip strength to move them legs around! It is true, she is only a faux-loli! Such shame. ;_;

Great picture, and nice back-story. It really seems to fit the personality she portrays in this picture.
