And now, the long awaited return of two of Renit's greatest defenders!
Names: Richand Zamikios and Siana Zamikios (Makantes)
Ages: 32 (Siana), 34 (Richand)
Alliances: Good (Drosin)
Richand: Richand 6' 3", and has ice blue eyes and wavy brown hair that goes down to his neck. Richand always wears a chestplate of light, silvery-blue armor with moderate defense along with fingerless gloves. He wears light, comfortable pants with chainmail underneath and boots. On his back, he carries his Zodiac sword, Stargleam. Although the combined weight of his armor is enough to make an average man fall to his knees, Richand is strong enough to wear it all with only a slight decrease in his agility in combat, which is formidable, to say the least.
Although he is quite a bit older since his first adventure, Richand is just as strong as always, constantly training to keep in shape. He also still looks incredibly young for his age, and most people assume he's in his early 20's. Richand still uses the exact same armor that he did in his first adventure, though he personally reforged it with new steel making it stronger, lighter, and more durable. Richand's old blue headband is now tied around his right arm rather than his head, and his hair is slightly shaggier. Richand's sword, Stargleam, remains the same save for it's faint glow visible only in the dark, due to it's use in his Avatar of Light transformation in his final battle with Storm.
Siana: "Sia" is 5' 8" and has light blond hair that goes down to her hips. She has fiery red eyes and wears a red and white robe with light chainmail underneath so she can move fast. The center of her robe bears the symbol of the Makantes family- two golden fire serpents entwining each other. In the original story, Siana wore a black glove on her right hand with the same emblem. She now wears a bulkier "gauntlet" with the Zamikios symbol in addition to the Makantes symbol on her robe. The Zamikios symbol consists of a sword surrounded by 12 spheres, representing the 12 Zodiac animals the Zamikios family can use.
Due to her magic blood, Siana ages slower than normal humans and looks very young, like Richand, and appears no older than 23.
Richand: Richand is the second youngest member of the Zamikios family, a warrior family known in all four nations for their unique type of combat known as Zodiac Mastery. Zodiac Mastery allows the wielder to channel the powers of the symbols of the Zodiac into the weapon they wield. Only members of the Zamikios family are able to use more than one Zodiac spirit in combat. Richand's father, Lloyd, was possibly the most famous of all of the Zamikios line, having slain numerous legendary beasts terrorizing the nations. Richand learned all of his combat abilities from his father. Tragically, his father was murdered by the vicious Destrian dictator and old rival of Lloyd, Storm Valentine the day Richand turned 19. Once Destry declared war on the other nations, Richand's younger brother Nicklas went off to join the Drosin military. Richand, however, agreed to go with his close friend Siana, believing that they might be able to do more good by joining the resistance in Salfir. Richand also believed that he might finally be able to get to the bottom of the mystery behind his father's death, and learned Storm was responsible over the course of his journey.
Siana: Sia was born and raised in Drosin. She is the youngest member of the Makantes family, a famous spellcasting family who has worked hand-in-hand with the warrior family of Drosin, the Zamikios family, to protect the land. Her mother taught her the art of healing magic until age 12, when her mother died. Since then, Sia has practiced both healing and offensive fire magic. When Destry declared war on the other three nations, Sia was not chosen to fight in the army simply because she was a woman. Wanting to help, she and her friend Richand set out for Salfir, hoping to help the resistance.
After the events of the first story, Richand and Siana got married, and shortly after Storm's defeat, she gave birth to a child, Caedus Zamikios, whom they both love. Despite their newfound wealth and worldwide fame as the heroes who beat the evil Storm, they do not flaunt their fame, instead living a quiet life in a house close to Negliv. However, Richand and Siana are both now commanders of the Drosin military, as well as peacekeepers between nations. They also are taking an active role in stoppping the Destrian Shadows, and keep in close contact with Oric, their old friend.
Richand: Richand is extremely good-natured and kind. Like Siana (or as he affectionately refers to her, "Sia") he does not fight unless he has to or his friends are in danger. Since the original Realms, he has become more experienced and comfortable in commanding troops, and he has natural leadership skills. As many have said, he is a natural and true hero.
Siana: Siana is a very friendly and nice person, and is always looking to see if someone needs help. Although she doesn't fight if she doesn't have to, she has a strong sense of justice and will help her friends. Like Richand, she has also developed better leadership skills and is an expert tactician.
Richand and Siana love each other very deeply, and they both love their son, Caedus, very much. They also help out any of the citizens of Renit whenever they can.
Richand: Richand is an amazing hand-to-hand fighter, but he truly shines in swordplay. Richand has mastery of the legendary sword Stargleam, which was once his fathers' and is known throughout the world. Stargleam is a Zodiac weapon, which allows Richand to channel the might of the symbols of the Zodiac through it. Richand is quite strong and is also quite agile, able to do flips and jumps even while in his heavy armor. Since the first story, Richand has achieved a much better mastery of his Zodiac abilities. They are as follows:
Fist of Aries
Horn of Taurus
Illusion of Gemini
Inspiration of Cancer
Roar of Leo
Salve of Virgo
Sight of Libra
Blade of Scorpio
Arrow of Sagittarius
Spiral of Capricorn
Tower of Aquarius
Hook of Pisces
Richand also has access to a powered-up form known as "Constellation Richand" which he first accessed through the Rite of Gaia in his battle with the demon Naxus. In this form, all of Richand's armor and sword become golden-white, and his hair stands up straight, a shimmering white. Although going into the form can be very physically draining, it gives Richand access to a variety of amazing "Constellation" powers, as well as powering himself up tremendously. At the very end of Realms, Richand accessed his ultimate forms using the help of all of the deceased heroes as well as the sheer power of the four Orbs of Renit to become "The Avatar of Light", the purest manifestation of good in all of history and one of the strongest fighters ever, being powered by heroism and light.
Siana: Siana has mastery of her two types of preferred magic, which are Healing magic and fire magic. When in combat, Sia surprises her foes with her mix of impressive agility and mid-close range fire blasts. She is also skilled in hand-to-hand fighting thanks to training from Richand. Since the original story, Siana's magic has improved quite a bit. In addition to her offensive and defensive magic, she now has access to close combat lightning attacks that spark from her gauntlet. She has also extended her knowledge of fire magic to the point that she can speed around by shooting jets of flame from her boots, as well as leap very far distances.
Role in Realms 1: Richand and Siana were two of the main characters in the original Realms, with Richand eventually emerging as the leader of the heroic rebels. The plot of Realms followed their and their allies journey to collect the four Orbs of Renit and stop Storm from taking over the world. At the end of the story, Richand used the four Orbs to transform into the Avatar of Light and seal Storm away. He then scattered the orbs across the land once again. OVer the course of the story, Siana and Richand also came to realize that they were in love with each other.
