Aelindria is astonishingly prodigious and powerful with force lightning and supremely accomplished in the art of force draining to siphon the life and/or force energy from her targets to invigorate herself and grow stronger. Aelindria has managed to learn the forbidden Force Walk technique to bind force ghosts to herself and tap into their power; she eventually learns to devour the ghosts and absorb their power directly to herself.
Aelindria is also a highly proficient lightsaber duellist who favours speed and agility over raw power. Lastly she is skilled in many varied force techniques including Healing, Force Cloak, Mind Manipulation, Telekinesis, Force Deflect, Force Speed, Force Walk, Force Devouring, and Beast Domination

Though Aelindria is both evil and power-hungry as well as fully embraces the Dark Side she tampers it with tendencies usually more often associated with the light than the dark. She lives by the spirit of the Sith code, if not the letter; rather than only hate and anger she draws power from all her passions, including her joy and devotion.
Unlike many of her fellow Sith Aelindria is not devoid of compassion, mercy or loyalty. She is loyal to and protective of her friends and believes in helping and respecting her allies. Not only fairly humble for a Sith she is also a rather rational individual that unlike many capricious Sith will generally show mercy and spare captured enemies and forgive failed subordinates rather than simply kill them. Her devious and insidious nature is contrasted by her friendliness towards her fellow imperials, and often even healthy respect to her enemies.
Lastly betrayal and backstabbing is the one part of the Sith philosophy that she does not adhere to, and she will never betray an ally if she can avoid it, not even backstabbing her mentor as is usual for a Sith.
These qualities of caring for her people have often made her a well-liked character amongst those Imperials that have or does serve with or under her. Though it has not always endeared her to her fellow Sith, as many view these self-same qualities, as well as her alien heritage, as signs of weakness and unbecoming of a member of the Sith.
However while Aelindria does possess virtues rarely associated with her position she remains a Sith through and through. She thoroughly enjoys slaughtering her foes and those she feel deserves it, and while she always strives to strengthen the Empire one of the primary goals of doing so remains to crush the Republic. There are few things that satisfy her more than gaining dark power. A free-spirited individual who places much importance on being who she is, Aelindria reserves a special enmity for the rigidity and self-deniability of the Jedi code and its abhorrence of emotions and personal freedoms. Thus there is little she finds more enjoyable than fighting Jedi and to either prove wrong, kill or even corrupt them to the Dark Side where possible.

I've seen a walkthrough of the Sith Inquisitor path on YouTube, and I quite like the personality you came up with for yours. Drawing power from all of her emotions other than hate and rage, loyalty and mercy to her friends, allies, and subordinates, here's a Sith I wouldn't mind rooting for. As much as the Jedi are the "good guys" of the Star Wars Galaxy, their philosophy and lifestyle isn't one I would emulate, at all.

Great artwork and great character.

wow! The lights effects are really nice!
Akernis Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Glad you think so. I didn't paint it myself, as it was a commission, the painter has several pieces n similar style in his gallery. Which is linked in the description.

I felt a small edit was in order.

Awesome awesome and more awesome.

Thank you, I appreciate it :)
Wisky-08 Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2013
More please
Akernis Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I appreciate the though :)
But though I do have several characters and ideas in the same vein I do not currently have money to spare for more commissions like this one, and I am not yet skilled or fast enough to paint them myself.

Though hopefully either of things will change in the near future.

Your character looks amazing I must say. And interesting background you've written up for her. 
On a side note might I inquire, but would you mind if I add her to a fanfic I've been writing up? 
A bit of a multi-cross story, but plenty of OC action for many people, I've been hoping to get support. 

I'll link the story when it launches. :)
Akernis Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Thank you, I value the sentiment :)

I appreciate the offer and hope things will go well with your story, but I will have to respectfully decline, I am not fond of anyone but my close friends using my characters. Especially characters like her which I really like. 
Jin-Ghi-Lives Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2013
Ok thanks for hearing me out at least. :)
Akernis Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
No problem.
Praxiusalternate Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2013
such amazing work and detail, well done
Akernis Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks, I am glad you like her, she is my character but I can't take credit for the artwork.
The picture is a commission from :iconserathus:

Thanks or the fav as well :)

Ha! My Sith Inquisitor is a female Zabrak too. ;p Too bad we aren't on the same server
Akernis Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Nice *sister Zabrak high-five* :XD:
Agreed, would have been cool.

And thanks for the fave :)
AresKeith Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2013
That your SWTOR Character?
Akernis Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Indeed :)
Or my first and primary one at any rate, I also have an human female Imperial Agent.

Man, that smirk. She's really imposing.

The lightning in the background is definitely a neat touch considering she's proficient at the power to create it herself. If I were a Jedi, I'd definitely be unnerved by her presence. She may have compassion, mercy and loyalty, but being her enemy is definitely not good, and you can see it in this rather well-drawn picture.
Akernis Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks Theo :)
And my thoughts exactly, glad she is on my side :D

I am really happy about Serathus' performance with this one, she is probably my favourite OC together with my DAO Warden.

I just hope I will be able to paint so well some day, though I will probably have to stick to writing for some time yet ;)
