Random Facts about Zero:
• He not only eats regular food, but also eats gold.
• He's chill with kids though he won't baby them. He will definitely bicker with bratty / annoying ones.
• If he loses too much blood he can black out till his body heals up.
• Basically wearing Zero down and making him pass out is a win, since he can't die. (Unless fatally wounded by one of his own kind).
• As seen in the image, Zero has taken a liking to one of Sketch's jackets and has stolen it for himself!
• VERY needy.
• He duel-wields two big swords.
• Zero’s species (Infinity Flames) is not an open species. It’s a CLOSED species. There will be no adoptables of them. There will be no group of them.
They are specifically just for Zero’s story.
• More Info about his species itself is going to be written down on something separate from this, that's why I didn't go into detail yet about the Royal's and Proto's.
Brace yourselves, Zero is my over-powered bby. <3
Zero's Background Story:
The RohKuh, which means Infinity Flame in their language, started off on one world which they simply call ‘Home World’. It’s where the first were all born and eventually the world was populated with them. There are three types of RohKuh's: Highborn, Royal, and Proto. The Highborn were the first to exist on Home World; and are the oldest and the most powerful.
Zero is a Highborn RohKuh. Back then his name was Apex and in Apex's first life he was the First King of Home World. He fought many wars proving his worth for the title - Two dominant species on Home World fought, the RohKuh VS the Hunters. Sentinel, another Highborn Rohkuh, stood on the side lines watching one small war after another between the two species. When Sentinel determined it was time to step in he annihilated most of the hunters in one move. Ending the last war between the two on Home World. Hunters that had survived were either still guarding their home lands far from the Infinity Flame city or were ones that were out of range of the blue searing spears Sentinel had used on them. Sentinel was done after that, being the type to keep to himself no one saw him again for a long time.
Back at the Infinity Flame's city some didn't agree with the purge. Riots started within the RohKuh species and they started turning on eachother. Many broke away from the city and became rebels that didn't agree with how things were run or just wanted to start shit, being young and all. Young Apex was among the rebel group - though his reason for being with them was based on greed and not so heroic. He was to fight for ownership over the planet, while the rebels thought he was just fighting for them. Being the only Highborn of their group they looked to him to help win the future wars they were to start. Always by his side was his loyal Gladien friend, Ira, who had also fought in the wars with him. Ira had raised Apex in his first life - Highborn's started out as lost little children; Apex was lucky to have Ira come across him and take him in.
So as the wars began, Apex was sent in. Many wars went on and many Rohkuh died at Apex's hand - as well as Ira's claws. He couldn't lie to himself, Apex enjoyed how powerful he felt, his ego and experience rising with each kill, Apex was unstoppable. He won every war for the rebels and the rebels eventually took over the city - Apex dubbed the First King of Home World, just as he wanted - years gone by and it was actually made a better place. Even with his hot temper, Apex made a pretty damn good king.
As greedy and chaotic as Apex was, his reign for over millions of years was very peaceful. No more wars, no more hate, no sorrow or suffering, everything was equal. He was just content with his title, the ownership he had, being pampered, and given as much attention as he wanted. So he took care of everyone in return. Though sometimes still an asshole, his people somehow still liked him. Not all though, his guards were plotting against him. They didn't like the equality, you could say Apex's greed rubbed off on them and they wanted a higher status. The order needed a change.
Apex's guards blackmailed him with his friend Ira's life. Dragging in the poor tied up Gladien with a deadly weapon to his neck as proof. In the past Apex couldn't bear the idea of losing Ira and had blessed Ira with a part of himself, so Ira had never aged and lived on to stay by Apex's side. This blessing did not include being unable to die, once Ira was gone, he would be gone forever. Apex stepped down and gave up his title in order to save his friend. The head of the guard was named Ryker, who was also a Highborn RohKuh, he took up title as King and kept Ira with him as insurance while Apex was thrown out of his own home. Riddled with anger and unable to do anything about it with Ira's life on the line, Apex could only walk away. The only story the people were given was that Apex had stepped down and there was a new King, no explanation given as to why.
New rules were being put in place and Proto RohKuh's were being sent in groups to find new worlds to call home, create bases. Their species were meant to be explorers, conquerors. Whether for the right or wrong reasons, they enjoyed discovering new places and meeting new species. Apex joined a group of five other flames. Together they went to a new planet and began building their homes there. However over the years Apex's anger over the blackmail had flared even more, eventually leaving his new planet. Apex became a notorious planet killer as he traveled to other planets that Infinity Flames lived on, killing them in order to practice and excel with his abilities. His greed over-coming him as well, he destroyed their planets, wanting his new planet to be the only planet.
Apex's growing rage and pain brought him back to Home World, his aim to take back Ira and then the crown. It was Apex against Highborn's and Royal's. His power overcame a great amount of them as he killed off as many as he could - but there was too many, he was eventually overwhelmed and beaten down. In the end Apex failed and was killed, but within all of that chaos he brought to the city.. he was able to free Ira and severely damage the city. It was in ruins and would take many years to rebuild what Apex had destroyed.
Sentinel found Apex's flame and bones in the aftermath, taking it before King Ryker could. He brought Apex's flame back to the planet he had first traveled to with the other Infinities. Sentinel warned them of Apex and that it would be best to not help him remember most of his past - though some things would be fine. When Apex was reborn into his second life, the other Infinities tried to give him a chance in this life. Hoping he wouldn't follow the same path he'd gone in his first life. Their hopes ignored, Zero was figuring his abilities out on his own - mainly the ones where he could create creatures. One RohKuh had noticed this and convinced Apex to let him 'help'. By doing this they created horrifying creatures together that kept a solid form, a whole new species akin to demons. Then they multiplied.
The RohKuh that had helped Apex with the creatures was slowly reminding him of his past as well and a switch was flipped. Apex quickly turned on the RohKuh and killed him. Apex and his creatures started wreaking havoc, killing off other beings that lived on the world, life being drained from the planet. Eventually facing the other RohKuh's he came to this world with, Apex and his creations took each one out - one by one. He was 'King' now. At least for a moment - he had no idea about Sentinel being on this planet and so he wasn't expecting an attack from the other Highborn.
Sentinel had killed Apex as well as wiping out all of his creations at once. Again he would have to watch over Apex and hope in his next life things would be different. Which they were different. Sentinel waited for all of the Infinity Flames to be reborn, he spoke to them about their past lives and how they died. However he didn't tell Apex a thing and told the others to do the same in order to keep history from repeating itself. Apex was alone for most of his third life, the others only interacting with him when necessary. He had to survive and learn things himself. Until Ira found him once again. For years Ira explored through many worlds trying to find Zero, their bond had slowly faded when Zero first died. Though Ira could still feel him and followed that feeling. Once he'd finally found his friend, Ira once again never left his side. It wasn't surprising how fast their bond grew again.
Ever since Apex's first life, Sentinel had taken interest in the Black flame. He continued to watch Apex in his third life for a few good years, but eventually gave in to his own needs. Sentinel thought it was time for a change before things played out the same as it did in Apex's other lives. Not only that, but Sentinel was growing tired of watching him be in so much pain. Anger still lingered, though Apex could never put his finger on it, there was something out there that was calling to him. Sentinel decided to reveal himself to Apex one day; since then they began hanging out a lot, getting closer and closer to each other. Thousands of years passed by and eventually they were officially a couple. Things were peaceful again.
Fast forward a couple thousand more years later, the planet was flourishing again, many different species and intelligent beings living on their world again. Apex and Ira would visit a certain village every now and then - Apex had made two small friends, Ahio and Eiza, both little cat children. Though not literally cats, they had the features of one with their tails and ears. The two looked up to Apex like he were an older brother. Apex looked at them like they were annoying little yet lovable kitten siblings. They grew up with Apex in their lives, life was full of fun. At times Sentinel would visit too though he kept a good distance from the children. He hated children.
One day things had changed, over the past years a creature had evolved into something monstrous and was now setting things a flame everywhere it went. It devoured what life it could as it slowly made its way towards Ahio and Eiza's village. The children were with Apex exploring outside of the village. Apex easily spotted the disaster making its way towards them. The creature looked so.. so familiar. It was black and he could have sworn black flames had sparked off its body every now and then. It looked like his fire. It looked almost like the creatures he created in battle. Those creatures couldn't form long lasting solid bodies like this though. Apex was hit with sudden flash backs as the creature screamed, pure anger radiating off of it. It was part of him. Something Sentinel had missed when he took out the flood of monsters during Apex's second life. It had lived for so long it grew into a giant, its strength and abilities growing with it. This was the end of Apex's third life. Sentinel would have been unable to take out a creature like this, nor Apex. At least he wouldn't survive if he tried to. That meant sacrifice. He had Ira take the children away. They never saw each other again, Ira never came looking either, they said their goodbyes beforehand.
Sentinel came looking though. Upset, hurt, enraged. He didn't want to have to start over. Apex wasn't going to know him at all and he wasn't sure if he wanted to remind him. Things may have turned out good in Apex's third life, but how would he know it would be the same in his fourth? It was a 50/50 chance he'd have the same personality. Sentinel would have to wait, he'd have to try again. He couldn't remind Apex of his past while he was in his third life so he can't do it again this next one. Sentinel would have to create the relationship all over again and he didn't even know if it would work, that's what hurt him the most.
He ended up bringing Apex's flame to a whole new planet, a planet that Apex had once killed off, but was brought back to life - Sentinel left him there alone as he had to once again watch from the sidelines. The day Apex was finally reborn, Ronnie Viktch was there to witness it and took Apex in, giving him the name Zero Blackfire. Zero had reflected off the dominant species of this world and took the form of a wolf. Sentinel did the same and also took on the name 'Sketch Stonewright'. For a long time Zero didn't know who he was and what he could do, again having to relearn things. Sketch made his appearance once again when Zero was older, they were eventually together again. At present time, due to some rough events throughout their lives, Zero regained most of his memories as Apex. Though with Sketch's help he was able to manage it.
But that strong need to go home and take back his title still lingers.

I don't mind if you don't give them out...^^
Just love the lineart;;
*has a heart attack*
I have the urge to draw him ^w^
Ps. Over powered characters are the best
no but he's still as dreamy as he was when i was but a tiny horseling... sighs. i still love zero so much!!!
oh and look at that, zero added more kids to the family
Zero has such an interesting and sad backstory. Going around destroying worlds made me go "Well throw a fucking tantrum why don't you Zero?!" that I had to laugh. But seriously, having to be so powerful and put down/killed only to be reborn, learn things all over again only to be reminded of the terrible things in your past and having this nagging vile anger loom constantly makes for a troubled and complex character. I'm impressed. And man do I feel bad for Sketch too.. Always being the guardian/watcher, I can kinda sympathize with him as well. Also, he himself must be a fucking badass in his own right performing the Hunter purge himself.
Great stuff! Loved the backstory! It seems both our characters Zero / Fenris both have extremely troubled pasts.
AND SHIT BRO YOU KNOW I CAN'T HELP BUT LOVE THOSE HORNS LIKE DAMN <3333
I looooove the little stone bg, and just the set up and figures in this in general. ;o; It's all so eye catching and charming!! YOUR WORK NEVER FAILS TO IMPRESS HNG <333 GREAT WORK BBY.
I'M GONNA DRAW HIM BETTER NOW
i love the stone template too tho ;o;
