Sidony , also being called Sid is the daughter of the highest ranking metal cavalrist in the country. She's living in Oberstadt, seperated from the slumes of Unterstadt and is dreaming of following in her father's footsteps to protect the people in Unterstadt from the evil. Her father has different plans with her, tough, and wants her to be married to a nobel to give her the chance to live under the glass dome of Vigoleria city. But Sid prefers to sneak to Unterstadt and meet her best friend Yan the blacksmith, instead. When Sid loses her family because of the resistance she becomes a metal knight to continue her deceased fathers duty and to take revenge.
Yan is half human half gnome and as such he's not much more than the dirt under the shoes of even the lowest casts in Unterstadt. He's working as a blacksmith in the Iron City, the biggest weapon concern and he's secretly in love with the soldiers daughter Sidony. When being accused of an impact on the Iron City he escapes and later joins the resistance against the king.
The gnome Basker is a criminal genius who's able to make great but not always useful inventions even out of dirt. He's one of the heads of the resistance and very ambitious to enthrone the king. Not before the massacre he begins to understand the great misfortune of the storm they provoked.
Azra grew up at Unterstadts slums together with her sightless sister and later was recruited by Gregor, the leader of the resistance. Her face is the face of the rebellion and she would stop at nothing to make Gregor happy.
Urs is a former servant who lived under the glass dome of Vigoleria, being banned to the coal mines for apparently no reason. Due to an explosion Urs finds himself in a big cavern system under the mines, where he encounters an ancient artefact that influences not only the civil war but the whole world of Vigoleria.
Ragnar once was a nobel living under the glass dome whose life as an archivist of the king's library ended when his brother, a high soldier, betrayed the king and founded the resistance.While his brother Gregor builds up the resistance Ragnar strikes out to the wilderness, to search for the answer of Vigolerias oldest and most dangerous secret.
Bjalla is the king's son and lives under the glass dome of Vigoleria without even knowing about the world outside. When his whole family and even the poeple of his home town start acting weird he begins to ask himself about the world outside the forest they are not allowed to cross through
Julien is the so called Shaft master. He's the one controlling the one existing entrance to the glass dome and one of the few people who is allowed to cross the dark caves under the city called the Shaft. Julien, who has a faible for numbers and tidiness, wants to find out more about the one secret place under Vigoleria nobody is able to enter., the Salt Mines
My name is Jenny and I'm a digital artist. VIGOLERIA is a private project I'm working on for quite a while by now and I would like to share my concept art and progress to you at this profile.
VIGOLERIA is the story about a world being engulfed in violence, poverty and dirt, its emperor being forced to conduct campaigns for satisfying the nobels who support him. A world full of slaves working themselves to death in the coal mines and of a people pining away in the slums of a town as big as a country, while the rich ones are celebrating themselves in luxury protected by a dome of glass.
When a group of rebels flocks together to break the cycle of violence they provoke a storm that cannot be stopped and amidst the imminent civil war it soon isn't clear anymore who is the true enemy that needs to be destroyed.
