Ashes "The Iron Maiden" DarkmareAge:
Known as the unbeatable champion who won the Hero's Tournament twice in a row (the first for any champion), fans have given her the nickname 'Iron Maiden' for her great endurance, strength and beauty. Unlike her twin sister Sehsa Nightmare, Ashes fights with honor and respects tradition, and refuses to take advantage of her physical beauty to gain any advantage whatsoever. She also does not believe in using weapons in battle, believing that the body is anyone's strongest arsenal. Acts as both Iron Tail's mentor and guardian, she hopes to raise him into becoming the Hero he always dreams of. Don't let her looks fool you though: she's quite the powerhouse!
And speaking of Ashes (from the previous picture), here's the 'Iron Maiden' herself now! And guess who owns her and her sister now (well, at least their 'Iron Tail versions')? That's right, the Eagle himself! I thought it was fair since every single bit of their concepts in Iron's world - right down to their back stories and fighting styles - were done by me. Just wanna say that I do like the kind of female characters that are independent and strong. Ashes is meant to be an example who could be a character used for many fan services, but I chose to make the fact that she's a fighter to properly describe her instead. What I also enjoy in the character is the 'little things' of her personality: like how she thinks it's more polite for Iron Tail to bow a little when walking past an adult, or that it's more respectful to point at someone with the thumb.
Other than that, it's her inner struggle accepting the fact that she can't give birth to the child she always wanted, but choosing to care for Iron Tail like he was her own son - just that idea can speak volumes on how tricky it can be for her to separate the relationship of teacher and student, from mother and child.
She also has a rival in ~blazedriver
