Rarkess Pink is a 27 year oldblack Female cog soldier who likes to make flashy appearances when she's in a tight situation. She's been criticized for her hot pink hair, lipstick, eyeshadow and fingernails, as it's too bright for combat and distracting for other cogs. She could care less about how it makes other people feel. Pink is her favorite color and she tries to make herself happy despite the fact the human race is dying. It's her way of keeping her sanity by making herself pretty. She has also been scolded for wasting resources by dyeing her hair and using makeup. She is mum on what exactly she uses to get the rich pink color she is known for. She seems to be able to keep her appearance up and is never seen looking unkempt to say the least. She's getting her supplies from someplace and it's not running low anytime soon!

Unfortunately, due to her association with a lambent canine that had shown back up after a year of being drug underground by the locusts, she was kicked out of many squads due to the creature being inseparable from her. 

She has tried to convince her superiors that the animal, named, Beanie, despite her appearance as a lambent-snake-like were creature, has retained her domestication mannerisms as a canine, originally, her training as a war animal and her personality and sweetness. None of her superiors trusts the animal or her judgement. 

Rarkess travels with Beanie, alone, scavenging everywhere she goes to make armor for the creature and to make accessories for her to keep her protected. It is not uncommon for Cog soldiers to see the animal and shoot at the animal's gut to kill it in an explosion of guts. Rarkess has outfitted the creature thoroughly with cog and locust armor to keep her protected from such things from cogs and the enemy-alike.

Rarkess is typically very snarky, sassy, and has an attitude. She isvery practical and does not cut corners. She's very straight forward and gets her job done, which is why she is highly desired, but because nobody will let Beanie tag along, she refuses to join a full squad. This does not mean she completely sequestrates herself from her brothers and sisters in arms. She will assist in battles if she comes across them. She's outfitted with the standard gear and other things she's picked up to be in on radio conversations about attack plans. She goes where she is lead by the radio channels and then parts ways once everything is done. 

She is well known and talked about amongst her peers, but she's never truly known on a personal level. Rarkess would really like a cog family, but until they are willing to trust her judgement with her companion, she will remain solitary.

Rarkess has discovered quite a few things about Beanie that enables her to survive on her own against hordes and hordes of locusts. 


Beanie has acidic saliva, thanks to the imulsion. It can erode through metal, flesh, and even solid rock. She can consume literally anything and digest it because of the acidic saliva and stomach bile. Her bile can be lit afire and is highly explosive like gasoline or other flammable liquids. Beanie's extremely long ears can not only "hear" but detect distinct vibrations apart from hearing and thus, even in the loudest of hellish noises she can pick out Rarkess's specific voice or other commands and get things done. Beanie can ridden and Rarkess has made a saddle and rein tack outfit for the creature to cover ground faster. She has mastered the art of mounted combat shooting and melee. This is something  other cog soldiers have never really had an opportunity to master, making Rarkess and Beanie a unique and very desirable addition to any cog squad, if they would accept the woman and her trusty sidekick.

The green color with the brown makes it look like rusty armor, or maybe dried blood. Either way, it looks fantastic!

I love her armor, you did well on the detail and it is fairly accurate for your first time. The green goes nice with her hair color.
