Credence Leisenfaust by ezekielwrath Credence Leisenfaust by ezekielwrath
A comissioned peice done by Noiry

My Character in a long-running Pathfinder adventure. A demon-blooded tiefling born to a small noble house in the Chelish city of Westcrown where her parents abandoned her for fear of someone uncovering her bloodline as demonic (Cheliax is a nation of devil worshipers and hates demons). She was found and raised by one of the city's thieves' guilds before leaving them due to being a terrible thief, among other reasons. Credence lived on her own in the streets as a mugger posing as a prostitute for a time before an altercation with her brother (neither knew at the time) cost her right eye. She fled Westcrown and found a haven and salvation in a small, nearly abandoned paladin monastery outside the city where she learned the ways of the light connected strongly with her.  After a brief stay decided she would see the world become better for tieflings and races similarly outcast and shunned.

Due to the demon blood altering her development Credence is 50 years old with the physical appearance of 22 and the mental maturity of 17. Despite the divine grace of a paladin, her demon blood and immature mind often cause emotional outbursts from her, and her usual demeanor is often brash but strong-willed. Additionally, she is street-smart and cunning, but lacks any formal education and is frequently confused by obscure monsters or complex magic. The demon blood also gives Credence great strength and resilience, allowing her to wield her massive fullblade, Callad Lux, with ease and granting her impressive bursts of speed, albeit in a straight line. She is wary of men and prefers the company of women largely due to a few specific events in her past and spending much of her developing years seeing the ugly side of the masculine gender.

Thank you so much!  It was actually Tyra that inspired me to begin getting commissions of my own redheaded badass along with a few of Gyda, my fiance's character an our signature pairing.  Once I started I couldn't stop XD

As for her deity, Credence is a Warrior of the Holy Light paladin archetype, so we decided to make a paladin order of the same name with no specific diety but rather empowered by the philosophy to do good.  The lack of central deity represented by the archetype's inability to cast spells but still able to channel good through their other paladin abilities.

Ha that's an interesting archetype for Paladins, my husband likes it too. 

  I saw Gyda too on Noiry's commissions ! You've got nice characters :) (Also funny that Tyra inspired you, it's quite flattering ! Though commissioning is hard to stop as an habit !)
