:: 44-080 [RO]Aas ::
Ragnarök Online fan art! I first sketched it before my wrist/arm issue came into being, so this was put off for two months. I chose to draw her because.... buckles,
apparently. +_+ I re-used my old art style in here, adding hair strands. The background is just copy-pasted from my own game screenshots. x'D I tried to redraw it but there is no strength to do so.
Her name in the game is translated into Aas (but some call her Ashley), and when you're surrounded by other game characters with names from the European region (RO is Norse mythology-based), I had to look this name up to find out if they translated it right. Aas = no hits. The closest was Ås', a Norwegian and Swedish name meaning 'ridge' -- although the pronunciation is unlike 'Aas' (not that I even know how to say Aas lol).
Putting that aside, I think Ås would be quite a befitting name for her. She is the Safety Support Team Captain of Rekenber Corporation's Security Department. She is stationed at the Borders area. The place I chose is the Border Posts, between Border Checkpoint and Schwarzwald Guards Camp. While she is quite serious in doing her job, there are cute moments when she shows her naïve side. She also has a fashionable hairstyle.
I also could not resist giving her a fashionable revolver. Revolvers are the latest handguns in the game. So, I gave her the unique zigzagged cylinder of the Webley-Fosbery Revolver! I first saw it in my Antique Firearms encyclopedia and I thought it was pretty wicked.
The ref/original art of Aas can be found at my RO blog post here: [link

My favourite line from her when she told a government agent in our team, "I'd rather break than bend!"
Agent 'Lazy': Miss Bodyguard (Aas), you're from the borderlands near Rune-Midgarts, aren't you?
Aas: How did you know?
Agent 'Lazy': You're wary, and the way you speak and move tells me you're the type who plans things ahead. ... Speaking of which, you shouldn't be so stiff. Stiff things break easily. I bend in whichever direction the wind blows, biding my time for a chance to counterattack.
Aas: I'd rather break than bend!
Agent 'Lazy': Geez, this is what I'm talking about. You never compromise! I bet your friends never let you in on whatever mischief that they were planning. That's also probably what saved you this time.
