Aurum, The Burdened
This joyous knight is known by many for her generous and spontaneous deeds throughout Venia. Her accomplishments scale from the smallest of thefts to the slaying of a threatening Titan. She tends to be social and is frequently described as light-hearted and jolly, but treads away from topics about her personal being. While adored by most, many can't help but wonder who she really is. Some suspect she is not human due to her face never seeming to be revealed or there being any reliable accounts of her eating or sleeping. Conspirators suggested she's a byproduct of necromancy; however it has been confirmed by Nex, The Guide of Essence and Souls, that she has a living, untainted, human soul. With that being said Aurum is not her true name; It is simply a reference to her intricate armor which is completely made of gold.
Aurum's armor dawns the look of a mighty bird with a feathered and beaked helmet, large feathers limping from her lower back and many bird visages covering the armor. Despite the ridicules from others on her appearance, the weakness and heaviness of having gold armor, Aurum is still able to move and fight in it, albeit slowly. Those jailed by her say that they can scratch and dent the armor, but never puncture it. Perhaps it is either extremely thick, or enchanted with some kind of magic. Aurum wields a small golden buckler in her right hand along with an incredibly long gold and steel sword-lance in her left.
Gold on Venia is a very treasured metal that holds great sentimental and practical value. Gold conducts magic like no other and giving or trading gold clothing and jewelry is considered an invite to a trusting relationship. However these articles are usually only worn on special social gatherings. It is worn on such occasions because of its attachment to the Venian Creator-God, Ornatu. Ornatu was once trapped in giant golden chains and shackles because of an attempt made to steal Ornatu's power by the inhabitants of another planet, the Titans. Wearing gold at times other than celebration gives it a negative connotation and it becomes a symbol of hardship and guilt.
With the symbolism of gold being known world-wide Aurum's armor is most likely not a fashion choice, but a statement. Perhaps this statement relates to a regretful past, or at least a great burden which can only be shown and not spoken of.

[this is simply a small bio on three new characters of mine. There are three heroes in total. Each have little to nothing to do with each other and unlike other stories in the same world "Venia" these are completely stand-alone that contribute nearly nothing to the over all story.]
