HOW TO CREATE A MEDIEVAL FEMALE OC/CHARACTER (warriors)
In the same way you wouldn't create an weak,anime/k-pop like male warrior,don't do this with women just because,you know,they are women,and have boobs and stuff.
Armors were made to PROTECT PEOPLE.This means that.if you're creating a warrior,she CAN'T HAVE A FUCKING CLEAVAGE/SHOW HER FUCKING LEGS/HAVE BOOB PLATES.DO YOU EVEN VITAL POINTS BRO?
In mediveval eras,they didn't got showers,perfume,none of that.And they didn't care about their appearence either.Messy,greasy,dirty hair,dirt on face,who cares.And absolutely,NO FUCKING MAKEUP.Also,hair.Long hair gets in the way,and it would get even dirtier and tangly.And bangs get in the way too.ALSO,SOMETHING THAT I SEE A LOT,DON'T MAKE HER WITH FUCKING SCENE/COLORFUL HAIR!WE ARE TALKING ABOUT 1100-1400 A.C,FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!
4-Oh come on.
NEKO EARS?KAWAII BLUSHING?WARRIOR WOMEN WERE FUCKING MONSTERS,JUST LIKE MEN.COME ON.DON'T MAKE THEM LOOK LIKE KAWAII ANIME SCHOOLGIRLS,SPECIALLY IF THE POINT OF THIS IS ATTRACTING A MALE!MEDIEVAL MEN WERE LOOKING FOR MEDIEVAL WOMEN,NOT FOR SOME CAT-EARED-FUTURISTIC-REVOLUTIONARY-FREAK.JESUS DAMN,PEOPLE.
MAKE YOUR BITCH STRONG!She could be skinnier if we were talking about mages,or thiefs here,but,think.If she can even lift a fucking stool,she can't lift a fucking greatsword.Get some reference pics of medieval weapon compared to human size.Yeah,they were PRETTY FUCKING BIG AND HEAVY,AS WELL AS THE ARMORS.PUT SOME MUSCLES ON THAT WOMAN.
"Hey,Luna,is it cool for her to have a love interest?"
Yeah,sure,why not?That's cool.But be aware of something,if her love interest is a leader,or a king,or someone important,they do not have the time to go pick out flowers in a field in a sunny day,because they are too busy being important.The same goes for your character.Also,not only avoid this in medieval characters,but ALL characters: DON'T MAKE EVERY SINGLE MALE CHARACTER FALL IN LOVE WITH HER.IF YOU DO,YOU WILL REMAIN FRIENDLESS AND UNLOVED FOREVER.
Warriors don't fight in dresses/skirts/or anything made out of fabric.Only mages do that.Only if your warrior is stupid and suicidal.We are talking about fire,steel and arrows that would attack them here,come on.
8-I COULDN'T THINK OF A GOOD TITLE
Base yourself out of your character.One of the things it pisses me off the most are the slutty clothing.Would you go out in a steel bikini to fight with dragons and delivery packages or some shit?No.Then,why would she?
Suteki Desu Danielly is not an warrior's name.Research for some medieval names.Not only they are more appropriate,but very cool too!To make a test to see if the name is cool,just put it with a title!Ex: Celestria the Brave.
Powers ARE acceptable (and cool).Almost all rpgs have magic,and warriors can also learn them!Just don't make her a Mary-Sue (by this,i mean,no mind reading,flying or making-people-fall-in-love-with-you-for-no-apparent-reason.Basically,make her with USEFUL MAGIC.Before giving her a power,think "could this be used to defend herself or someone else?" because that's the point of magic in rpgs.)
Be aware of the concept of weakness.Make her be stronger than some characters,but weaker than others.Also,define her personal weakness.For exemple,she might receive less damage from fire,but be weaker to ice.Everyone has flaws.
Don't make her all lovey-dovey.She's a warrior,for christ-sake.Also,flaws.
Don't do cliches.Have her story to be better than " then her parents died and she went to seek revenge".There are other reasons why someone would become a warrior,you know.
She will have enemies,there will be people trying to kill her,coming after her,who hate her etc.Get over it.
This will be a little polemic,but,SHE'S GOTTA BE FIT.There were no..."curvy" people that era,because they were too busy running from mithologycal creatures,people attacking the town etc.Also,let's face it,she wouldn't be capable of running (or being strong,at that).I'm not telling you to make her anorexic,but they didn't got McDonald's either.
Just don't turn her into a a fucking divinity.
