- "I am Polaris Eridanus, the Red Ice general, son of Scorpius, first of my name and last of my line."
- — Polaris Eridanus
Polaris Eridanus is a male inland Zora of unknown age who serves as a playable character in several ZRPG's. Created by redawson2 he is a general in the Zora army who has magical Red Ice powers.
During one of the many old wars of Hyrule, General Polaris found himself in charge of a number of his tribesmen set with the task of guarding the Water Temple against the Gerudo hoard of the thief king. At the battles end, Polaris' body lay riddled with arrows. It was on his funeral pyre that the goddesses chose to deny him entrance into the afterlife on the grounds that his usefulness was not yet fulfilled. His return was not celebrated the way you'd expect for a decorated general. Exiled, Polaris wandered for centuries making his presence known when necessary. When last seen he was entering the vault of his forefathers deep beneath Zora's Domain.
Excellent strategist and battle tactician. Mastery of ice, the red variety. Accomplished hand to hand combatant.
His lack of armor leaves him open to physical attacks. Extremely dry climates weaken him over time and reduces his control of and the ferocity of his ice magic. Fire is a hindrance. Blue Fire is a bitch.
Hand-and-a-half Blade: In tune with his element. It bears a well ornamented cross guard of the purest vermillion, resembling icicles extending down a few inches towards the blade. The grip is wrapped in a supple crimson leather of hand-and-a-half length, to allow the wielder the option of both one and two handed combat. The pommel is a snarling red dragons head carved from a single large ruby with sapphires set for the eyes. The blade is a dull grey, with rippling steel from the hundreds of times the metal was beaten out and folded upon itself. A crimson scabbard donning golden scrollwork finished the set.
Dual Makhaira: these weapons are attached to chains that are frozen and bound to the flesh of his arms, the chains intermingle with his funerary tattoos near perfectly, the swirling, slashing tattoos and lightning forged chains mesh together seamlessly. The chains and blades were initally forged during his encounter with the lava scorpion in the Temple of Forgotten Depths. This all occurred on Day 3
Polaris is old beyond measure, yet his body is frozen in the state it was at the time of his fall. He appears to be in his late 20's to early 30's and resembles any other Zora warrior of that age, save the crimson, rather than blue scales, the sword slung across his back and the head to toe funerary tattoos of his family and tribe.
First and foremost, Polaris is going to do what he thinks is right, no matter what the cost. Over the years he's turned into a bit of a recluse, because of that he's wary of readily offering trust to strangers. Saying that, he's doggedly loyal both to the love of friends and the hatred of foes. He'll put his neck on the line to aide and protect his comrades along with the weak and innocent.
