Akula Gvardiyae [WIP]

Post by Bloodtrailkiller on Sat 25 Jan 2014, 8:58 am

Akula Gvardiyae; derived from Akula, Ruskie for Shark, and Gvardiya for Guards
Obviously, a WIP
Akula Gvardiyae (Ah-Cool-Ah Give-Vaar-Dee-Yay) are elite hunters of the North Eastern shores of Haetia, the Akula are a renowned force that grew from a band of militia.


History [WIP]:

The Akula Givardiyae were initially just levies raised to take down a sea monster that was ravaging the coasts of Eastern Haetia. With only 99 militia raised from the quiet town of Akulaaviae (Ah-Cool-Ah-Eeyay-Vee-Yay), they were tasked for scouting out the sea monster's whereabouts during the season of winter. The Volkjarl, Akula, argued against his Jarl, Manson, that the task was suicide; Manson simply, and among Haetians, quotably 
"All the more glory for you"
Akula would have been hung for remarking otherwise, The North Eastern regions are one of the more brutal regions of Haetia. 
With that, Akula was forced to scout for the sea monster with his 99 militia men. They departed in eight warboats, a slightly stronger and heavily armed patrol boat. And one Warship, basically a light cruiser.
These ships were the worst ships Manson could spare; his better ships remained to follow wherever Akula found the sea monster. 
Akula and his 99 sailed into the stormy North Eastern Haetian sea to hunt for a sea monster rumored to be two miles long with a mouth fit to eat a mountain, and within that mouth were thousands others with teeth sharp enough to pierce space ship hulls. 
That is what Akula and his 99 were hunting. 
It would be an entire month before said beast was found, it was unbelievably huge, that much was known even on the basic sonar of the warship. 
Voice comms between the fleet were recorded and, later, brought to the public and to film.
The comms were filled with chatter, hardly a moment of silence was spared as the 99 prepared to pull back, notifiying the main fleet as they did so.
The recorded weather on that evening was hail and winds racing up to 65km/h, the beginnings of a Haetian hurricane.
Needless to say, Akula and his men were fit to leave; however, the sea monster felt the ping of sonar and turned on a dime. An hour after Akula's fleet began to return, the crews laughing and dreaming of returning back to the main fleet, the massive dot of the sea monster came back onto the sonar screen of Akula's warship.

That was when the comms grew deathly quiet; crews raced to windows to look behind them, they'd only heard of rumors and were anxious to see the beast in truth.
Akula ordered them to their battlestations a moment before the sea monster breached the surface. It wasn't as massive as the stories, though it was still bigger than Akula's warship, with a mouth just as wide. 
The thing was shaped like a torpedo and its mouth was covered by massive flaps of skin that pulled back to a large set of jaws, the teeth were definately bigger than the stories. 
Many of Akula's underlings panicked and roared for a full retreat, however, Akula knew they wouldn't be able to out run the beast, even now, as it returned to the surface, it began to gain on the fleet. 
Instead, Akula ordered three warboats from either flank of the fleet to peel off. Akula monitored the sonar as the flanks went off and kept his eye on the massive streak that was the sea monster. 
Just as he guessed, the sea monster was focused on the largest ship, Akula's. He ordered the crew to prepare for the hunt; they were only armed with basic munitions and the barest of equipment to fight beneath the freezing waters of the ocean, though the crew armed and readied, all the same. Turrets were manned and turrets were dismantled to be remounted on the sides. 

The beast had no patience and it instantly attacked the ship as soon as it could. Akula ordered the warboats back and the rest to fire on the sea monster as it simply bit off the engines and rotors of the warship in a single bite. 
Turrets were placed on the floor as the monster rose up and the turrets released their ammunition into the thick scales of the fish. Akula and his guards were armed with deep sea exploration gear and weapons, harpoons and axes, mostly. 
They leaped upon the fish, plunging harpoons and axes, which were tied to their suits, into the beasts scales as it plunged back into the ocean.

With that, Akula and his twelve guards began to climb the monster as it swam beneath the ocean. He ordered his warboats to prepare boarding actions; grappling hooks and axes were brought to bear, and deep sea gear was donned. 
The beast continued swimming, though it was aware of the twelve ants clinging to its hide. Akula and his guards continued climbing, and, after an hour of the action, Akula lost communication with his fleet. 
He continued climbing the beast; blood had long since smeared over his visor and he'd already lost seven of his men to the speed of the fish. 
In time, they finally reached their target; the eyes of the monster. They were the size of cars and the color of blood, it darted at the sudden ant at its eye and began to panic.
Akula himself brought out his knife and began stabbing madly at the fleshy spot of the monster; ordering his guards to do the same. However, when none joined him, he realized that he was alone; the arms of two of his men remained clasping their weapons and another was being eaten by a massive shark. Something Akula did not think of.
He scanned his surroundings and realized they were far into the great ocean of Haetia; where hundreds of carnivorous beasts roamed. He was lucky to have looked up, a great shark narrowly missed him as he ducked under its jaws. 
Akula found new fury and carved into the eye of the monster in rage and need for survival.

A question; what should the insignia be?
I want something along the lines of sharks and such, my initial idea was just like, the head of a shark; though that's a bit too simple and boorish.
So I thought of maybe a skull inside the jaws of a shark.
Both of these would have a metal texture of like... chrome or titanium..
Feel free to give me more ideas.

Mmm, better idea.
Shipwreck with a seamonsta head washed up beside it.
Complimented by the bored/tired face of the Akula... "Just another day in Haetia"

If I'm going to be honest; this was going to be another mosh up between My style/Nostrosian/Haetian and Darkonian.
Original paint scheme was grey, red, and white and the hat was more conscript-ey and less shark-ey.
And he didn't have a badass eyepatch.
