The Seven Heavenly Virtues by DoctorEvil06 The Seven Heavenly Virtues by DoctorEvil06
Recommended song: [link] (Fighting of the Spirit) (Tales of Symphonia)

When the Seven Deadly Sirens are causing trouble, these virtuous mermaids enter the scene, and drive back their sinful counterparts. They are typically a peaceful group of mermaids, never attacking unless they are threatened. They never throw the first punch. Despite this, they are skilled warriors in the weapons they carry, and they possess the only weapons that can easily beat the Sirens. They will fight by your side if you challenge the Sirens, with the Virtue opposing the Siren you’re fighting taking the front row. She’s got your back, trust me.

To get the Virtues to fight for you, you must prove to them that you need their assistance defeating the Sirens. You have to earn their trust before they’ll fight with you, and to do that, you must pass their challenges. If you do that, they will deem you worthy of assistance, and accompany you in your battle with the Sirens. It’s up to you, however, to supply yourself with the appropriate gear prior to fighting them.

The Virtues can resist the toxins and songs the Sirens have, so there’s no worry for them to become paralyzed, poisoned, etc. Their songs also overpower the siren songs, removing the effects from everyone in range and weakening the appropriate Siren. Act quickly, for the Sirens aren’t vulnerable for very long, and you’ll need every advantage you can get.

Unlike the Sirens, the Virtues do not have defining physical features. Stripping them of their arm gear and weapons, they’re almost palette swaps of each other. All of them are based on angelfish, they all have long hair (some wear it as a ponytail), and they all wear the same style chainmail bikini tops. This armor itself is based on the Femiscyran Armor from Dragon Quest 9, which is basically a chainmail bikini. There are actually several pieces of it, and it all provides very good defense, but only the armor is useful to the Virtues. The town this armor is made consists entirely of warrior women, and only girls undertaking the warrior vocation are able to wear it. The Virtues do however, wear different types of arm gear, ranging anywhere from generic armlets to gauntlets.

All the Virtues are linked to one another, and they can rush to the aid of one of their wounded. They all have resurrection and healing spells, so they are never without a healer. They will use these on you if you need them, and sometimes they’ll protect you from attacks if you find yourself in danger. You’ll need the support of all seven Virtues if you’re to have any chance against the Sirens. There is strength in numbers after all.

Their individual pictures:

All seven were painted over in Photoshop. The background was found on Google, and it's the same one used in my Deadly Sirens pic.

Cute concept, but I'd like to see more detail on the girls (they look too plain), especially in relation to their virtues. Chastity could be more modestly dressed, Temperance could have a Buddist monk style (given how they have to practice that virtue), Charity could have a gold color, Diligence could have a very energetic look, Patience would look serene, Kindness would have a sense of cheer and Humility would have a more plain look.

I went with a fantasy theme, since I was playing Dragon Quest 9 at the time. Glad you liked it though. If I draw them again, I'll try to use your ideas. Thanks all the same :)

~~ Having been a sailor that lived on the water for awhile, to the extent of taking my boat on voyages some would find well a bit scary at times. Having said that, I love mermaids. I have actually seen manatees up close and personal that came alongside my sailboat on the inter-coastal between Jacksonville and Miami, I can see why and how mermaids and their legend began. This is not to say that I believe in them, I do most kindheartedly and I love the use you have made of them as Virtues. Well done, and this work is splendid. Featured on my front page under Artists that Move Me. Thank you for helping me remember the boat that awaits me and giving an me a push to continue to fight through pain and get better. ~~

I approve of anyone who references Tales of Symphonia! lol. This is a really interesting take on the 7 deadly sins vs the 7 virtues. I look forward to seeing what else you come up with.

Wow ... oh how much I've missed. =w= This is beautiful! I love that all of them have relatively the same design to show how they're united, but they all have enough differences (besides color ;p) to show their uniqueness. I think my favorite here is Chastitiy, possibly because she looks extremely sweet, but probably because I love her bow. XD You must have put a lot of time into this, and it definitely paid off. Great work! ^^
