hmm, your design is really nice. And I don't just mean that in an aesthetic sense. I can tell that a lot of thought went into it, especally teh weapon design (which is a big improvement on FF8's gunblade design in functionality, while keeping the same aesthetic charm).
it saddens me that you didn't write down anything about this character in the author's description. If you have any sort of backstory written down for this character somewhere, i'd love to read it.
that there is something awesome and why dose that sword remind me for some odd reason of a Gun blade from Final Fantasy 8....hmm maybe the charges/rounds in the sword are Incendiary and Light the sword blade on fire wen triggered/fired that's just my guess but still very awesome
