Karst by Knight-Dawn Karst by Knight-Dawn
For the NPC contest at :icongoldensun-club:!
I choose Karst because she is a tragic character. I didn't like her at first, but toward the end she gained my sympathy.
I kind of wish Karst somehow could've survived the scene at Mars despite the fact that in-game text states she and Agatio died there. But all that aside, she is one of the more memorable villains I've come across.
As they say, set out on the path of vengeance and you might as well dig two graves...

I can feel it now... the long, dark sleep creeping into my soul.

...We can't even stand. We're in no condition to go on... Light the beacon for us... Please...

Your hands... so warm. People have such warm hands...

I had forgotten...

Technically we don't know if they're dead~
There was an Earthquake sealing Mars Lighthouse off after Felix and Co. escaped, and nobody can reach it. (and nobody can get OUT and back to Prox, either, Hint hint)
The Beacon's light revived Felix's Parents/Kyle (two of which weren't even Mars Adepts) who had just been turned into a Dragon. People in Prox say that they can feel the Beacon's power from there, So, I dunno.
...It's plausible. But I still don't expect them to suddenly show up in GS4. I'd say 75% chance Camelot killed 'em off. Unless they feel like giving us Proxian descendant party member or something.

Yeah, I know. That's the reasoning behind Karst's role in my post-DD fanfic, cause she's alive in that...
I honestly can see at least one of the duo surviving, and since I like Karst a lot I'd hope it would be her.
I guess we just have to wait and see.

And thanks.^^

Ha I love that people still believe she and Agatio are alive. So funny.

But besides that I like Karst :3 I liked all the prox warriors!

I know she's probably dead, I'm just still in denial. :D
I do like all the Proxians, too. :)

Karst... she was truly a female warrior =)

At first, she only fought to avenge her sister Menardi but, in the end, she understood what's really important for her, the people of Prox and all Weyard, she sacrificed everything inside her for the sake of everybody...

It's interesting how she's red-haired when Menardi was a blonde girl, I loved that big scythe she wielded as her main weapon, in battle she was not as deadly as her big sister and she hadn't powerful psynergy like Agatio's, but she had very good stats in speed and both sister's trademark attack: "Death Scyte" =)

Nice work, again, I loved those smooth shadows (I think smooth lighting effects and shadows are the best technique in your manga style, until now =D), this frawing is an instant fav!!! :la:

Yeah, I like that about Karst, too. She was a very strong woman warrior, who gave everything she had to do what she thought was right--and she did help save the world, though she went down in history as a bad guy.
She was the younger sister, so it makes sense that she wasn't as strong as Menardi. But she was still pretty dangerous.
And thank you, I love drawing with smooth effects. :D I'm glad you like it, too.^^

In-game text says she died at Mars Lighthouse? I haven't played Lost Age in... well, ages. But I don't remember it ever being stated outright that they were killed, and considering both the GSE's effects on people at the lighthouses, and Karst's promise to remain alive until the beacon was lit... well, I can see plenty of reasons why she'd still be around!

Even though it was at least heavily implied that she kicked the bucket.
Knight-Dawn Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2012  Student General Artist
Yeah, those are my thoughts as well, but...
Well, if you wander around Prox and talk to everyone there IS one person who says something about how "Karst and Agatio weren't really bad people, just a little obsessed... So it's sad that they're gone."
I've also heard that if you hack the game so Felix can read minds someone is thinking about how "Karst and Agatio were felled by a dragon that Felix's party went on to defeat," which is assumed to be a white lie that the party told the Proxians to avoid hostility...

But I like to think that at least one of them made it...

(Also I really like the picture and I feel stupid now for forgetting to actually comment on it... I love her expression.)
