Nik Nitsvetov as Pietas Bringer of Chaos from books by Kayelle Allen

 

 

When cosplaying Pietas, Nik Nitsvetov revealed aspects of the character's transformation I had never considered. Here are before, during, and after shots as Nik transformed Pietas into the Bringer of Chaos.

Pietas transforms

Watching Nik cosplay Pietas opened my eyes to how the character himself might have envisioned the change from "normal" to "superhero." To be clear, the ritual changes nothing but mindset, but it is effective. It's a clear way for Pietas to accept the mantle of leadership in the face of battle. Watch the video to see the full transformation with music and a voiceover by voice actor Zack Black.

Step 1: Before the Ritual

Witness the transformation: Pietas morphs into the Bringer of Chaos @nitsvetov_cos @voicesbyzack #SciFi #Cosplay #MFRWhooks #PietasFans

 

 

Watch the transformation: Pietas morphs into the Bringer of Chaos @nitsvetov_cos @voicesbyzack #SciFi #Cosplay #MFRWhooks

The Ritual of Strength tranforms Pietas into the War Leader of the Ultras -- a fighting machine known as the Bringer of Chaos. He earned the title because his strongest Sempervian gift is Chaos, the ability to create chaotic feelings with no outside source. In battle, it mind-dazes an enemy. But with a lover, his gift renders a partner helpless, inundating them with overwhelming pleasure.

He has worn a mask in battle ever since defeating the First Division, a human special-ops group formed to fight Ultras. It came about because Pietas slew an enemy, and blood splashed across his eyes. Thinking the blood belonged to Pietas, the Ultra troops rallied to him and slaughtered the humans. By the end of the battle, the blood had dried almost black. Stories of how their "bandit king" had conquered the First Division filled the night. To his troops, he was now the conqueror of the First Division, and they gave him a new title to celebrate: First Conqueror, War Leader of the Ultras.

Look at the facial expressions as Pietas lifts the mask into place, hiding his true self and preparing to morph into the Bringer of Chaos.

Step 2: Ritual

The expression of utter confidence while Pietas is wearing the mask reveals how much performing the ritual affects him. In the left image, he's removing a small knife used in the ritual. The story behind this knife -- I bought it at OutlantaCon a few years ago. It was made from hand-forged metal, a handle of hand-carved wood, and sheathed in hand-tooled leather. One of a kind. In the story (a Bringer of Chaos book not out yet), Six makes this knife and gives it to Pietas. He has used it for thousands of years and it's so fragile he now keeps it in a glass case. He never parts with a gift from a friend if there is any way possible to keep it.

In the second photo, Nik performs the scene where Pietas makes a small cut in his skin, symbolically shedding blood for his people. He heals instantly, but the point is he is ready to die for his people. Look at those eyes. Nik transformed as much as Pietas.

Step 3: After the Ritual

When the ritual is complete, Pietas removes his mask. In Origin of Pietas, he paints on the mask with soot from a fire, and right after, he and Six are caught in a downpour. When Six sees Pietas's face, he bursts into laughter and says Pietas looks like a "weapon of mascara destruction."

On the first photo, notice the focus in those eyes as Pietas begins the transformation back to his usual self. The next picture shows him with the mask off and a partial smile. I love that photo. It's the backdrop for my email program. My interpretation of this image is that Pietas is happy to return to his (somewhat) normal life and be who he really is.

Whinbrice, Skovron Stadium and Fine Wine

Whinbrice, a bright blue world with fertile oceans and landmasses.

The Skovron stadium opened in Birit 4664, only days before it hosted Wind and Thunder's Claw Rock Tour. Over sixty-four thousand people attended. The stadium's unusual spired arches permit outdoor seating in good weather, but a weather-resistant force field can generate within four seconds of a drop of rain. The underside of the arches can also render holographic images, permitting all seats to have an unobstructed view of the stage.

This cutaway view shows the Skovron Stadium after its renovation by Meesht Tormah Construction, a subsidiary of Tyran Motors. To get an accurate picture of the stadium's size, note the human figure above the letter "N" in Skovron. (Click to view full size)

Wind and Thunder's opening number using the stadium's holosystem to create life-like clouds and lightning flashes. When the group came on stage, lightning appeared to arc over their bodies. One by one, they thrust their hands toward different parts of the stadium and the holosystem cast the "lightning" over the audience. The effect was so realistic, hundreds of attendees ran for the exits. Paramedics treated several for panic attacks. The effect was dropped for the second show.

During that program, lead singer Gelina Fasra's voice rose so high that a window in the control panel shattered. The band's security company, For Women Only, immediately shut down the show and hunted for snipers.

The crystal-based ground on one continent produces fine wines that are sold empire wide. Luc Saint-Cyr owns a large vineyard there. Skovron burgundy is among the finest in the empire.

Trien, Home of the FIST

The FIST, the Facility for Imperial Ships and Transports is a group of stations orbiting Trien, the nearest planet to the capitol of the empire, Tarth.

Ships are modular in construction to save time when being built and during repairs.

Trien, Home of the FIST

In wartime, a damaged section of a ship can be jettisoned. The large ship in the background is a Destroyer. Three of these accompany Her Majesty's flagship, the Imperial Armada Ship (IAS) Usurper.

The FIST, Facility for Imperial Ships and Transports

In the foreground, a carrier is near completion. As an indication of relative size of the two ships, a carrier holds twenty squadrons of fifteen to twenty fighters each, plus ship's company, and all support staff for the squadrons. The total crew complement is nearly six thousand people.

There is another station visible in the deep background on the other side of Trien and its moons. Many stations make up the FIST.

The Tarthian Tour Company reminds you it is UNLAWFUL to take holographic or flat images of the FIST. Limited quantities of Armada approved images are available in the gift shop.
