The Order of X - Pheonix by NateHallinanArt The Order of X - Pheonix by NateHallinanArt
Character explorations of Lady Jean Grey the Phoenix

Jean came from the noble family of Grey. She was a bit of a tomboy growing up. Her parents despised and discouraged her unladylike behavior, but once she developed unnatural abilities, her family feared the worse. Lord Xavier offered her parents an opportunity to provide her with guidance and protection; they reluctantly accepted.

Phoenix is a name that the Lady Grey eventually earned in battle. With Jean's telepathic and telekinetic abilities, her arrows flew further and surer than anyone else. They never missed their target and when they were lit afire some would say they were guided by a phoenix. It didn't hurt that her hair was also a fiery red.

(Personal notes) Jean Grey always seemed like a weak second-hand member of the x-men. (Until she turned into the Phoenix of course.) I thought it would be cool to make her a strong badass female character. Xavier saw the potential in her ability and combined it with archery and other weaponry. With Scott's visual disability, he would depend on her assistance and capability.

I love this series! Still, I was expecting Jean to have a nurturer side, a badass nurse like Talisa Maegyr; a nun trying to contain an evil fiery god inside of her; or a fairy changeling with "Fiery fairy helpers" (or goblins) instead of Telekinesis. Anyway great job!

I'm still using the core idea that these are mutant humans but I really like your suggestions. Thanks!

The head gear in #2 just gives me an instant "magneto" vibe, which kind of distracted me from "getting" the character.

Other than that, I like all 3 of these. The chainmail would be a nice subtle "rich vibe" since it was expensive. On the other hand, depending on how loaded Xavier is in this setting, maybe that's not as relevant.

Loving this series BTW. :D

What, no boobies?! haha, kidding. These are sweet. I like that middle costume the most but enjoy how much more open her head gear is on the third. I also really like the leather leggings on the first over the other pant styles. Hmmm, there are bits of all of them that I like really. I think the face on the third is my favorite though hard to tell because it's a bit obscured...good eyes though. This may be my favorite set yet!
