Occitania Origins - Mikah Cassidy by The-JoeBlack Occitania Origins - Mikah Cassidy by The-JoeBlack

Mass Effect, costumes and weapons belong to Bioware and EA Games.The name "Occitania" and original character names and likeness belong to me and are not to be used without my permission. This is non for profit fanart only.

--------------------------

Update: Since quite a few of you voted for Mikah in my latest poll, I went back and turned this pic in to a proper wallpaper. Tweaked her pose and the lighting as well as editing Mikah's textures and adding bones to her tied up jacket.

Backstory:

Mikah Cassidy. The 19 year old tech savvy, redheaded, heavy metal loving skater girl was rescued four years ago by Jessica Wolfe's team in the middle of an attack on a Geth ship. Belladonna found her strapped in to a Geth chamber where they seemed to be running some sort of experiments on her. This was highly unusual as the Geth are not known for taking prisoners.

Jessica asked her brother Elliot if he would watch out for her as Mikah seemed to have developed an almost scary aptitude with all forms of technology. As much as Jessica trusts the Alliance military, she didn't trust them to not dissect the poor girl.

Mikah now travels with Elliot's ragtag bunch of mercenaries for hire, using her tech skills to help where she can. She rides her self designed hoverboard in to action and strikes with machine-like accuracy.

Mikah has developed a girl-crush on her rescuer Belladonna. Belladonna however sees her as a younger sister and stops in to check on her from time to time, giving her the spiked collar with a heart on it to her for her 18th birthday.

Note: That's a pink bandaid on her cheek (one that dispenses medigel).

---------------------------
 

Thanks to Raidergale, Love2Raid, SumireHaikuXNA and moogleoutfitters for all the peices used to make Mikah and meken for the awesome Turian design on her shirt. Thanks to SumireHaikuXNA for porting the omnitool and to BobYD for extracting the hoverboard. Thanks to Alienfodder for the background

Thank you!! I was hoping she looked relateable. I wanted a mix of the typical ME style with a bit of our modern style. Along with a hoverboard inspired by Back to the Future of course :P

This is a much better look than the copy-Elliot look she use to have.  Great work.  I think medi-gel might have made Band-Aids obsolete and she does have an Omni-tool and "an almost scary aptitude with all forms of technology".  unless there's some kind of custom somewhere of putting Band-Aids on unscarred flesh for some reason, I don't think that Band-Aids can be found in that century.

have you given any thought to making renderings of any of the characters from my dossiers like the Beowulf legion, or the RoniN7 (wait, have I asked that before?)?  what was the verdict on the 4 armed character I suggested a while back that you had time to make?  did time run out or was duplicating arms become to much of a hassle.  I don't remember what my response was to the message you sent me about it.

Lol. Yeah the bandaid is more for aesthetics than actual use. Though maybe bandaids in the future will have small amounts of delayed release medigel in them :P

I was thinking about your four armed guy the other day actually. You were going to choose some existing armors and a head model and send me some links so I could edit them all together.

I remember now.  I was probably conflicted with what I wanted and eventually decided to try and finish this one drawing I have of the Beowulf legion's leaders, (Torrence, Nake and Dali), but failed miserably as I was indecisive with that too and then I had to move to a different city (or maybe procrastination was part of it too, can't remember).  However, I do have some ideas/questions now:

1) Would it be possible to use Goro's body model and put human hands on his arms instead of the normal ones shokan have, then fit the following armors around his massive bulk?  I ask because the character I'm thinking about is tall and huge, like being able to see Eye-to-eye with Karnach when (or if he's able to) he's standing up straighter with those weird legs of his.  If not, James's physique will suffice (again, only if you can fit the following armors around his form without too much trouble)

2) Is any part of the Nanosuit from Crysis 3 an option for armor (at least the upper part)?  If the shirtless look isn't an option then something like the nanosuit or a muscular looking armor would be cool or maybe the Octocamo suit that snake wore in Metal Gear solid 4 or something along those lines.

3) the armor pieces I definitely want are the bottom half of the Blood dragon armor, from the hip plates and belt down (maybe with Goro's shin plates from MK9).  The upper torso however, if your able to fit these around his physique, I would like either the collector armor, slayer/Kai Leng/Male Phantom Citadel armor (that style basically).  and some bulky armored gauntlets like what the defender armor has or what Cerberus troopers have on his upper arms and some less bulkier ones on his lower pair like what Zaeed and the Cerberus engineers have on their right arm mirrored for both.
