I modeled her (yes, this is a girl) after a few different people, including Sheik from Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Byrne from Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, Vincent Valentine and Shelke from Final Fantasy VIII: Dirge of Cerberus, and her sword is partially modeled after Demise's sword from Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.

Basically this girl used to live in a mountain village until it was destroyed by bandits. Before that, she was known to be very beautiful with long hair, a lovely smile and dazzling eyes (fitting...), but also able to decently defend herself. Then when her village was attacked, the bandits set fire to the homes. The girl's hair was singed short in the fire, and she lost her right eye and half her right arm while trying to defend the village. So after hiding in the woods for several days, she learns that her entire village had died in the attack and that she was the only survivor. Not wanting to return to the ruins, she becomes a loner in the mountains. She puts a patch over her eye, hides the majority of her face, and adapts to fighting left-handed with a sword and a mechanical right arm she constructed herself. She also wears a bit of armor to disguise her gender, yada yada yada... to wrap up this story she then meets some dude traveling through the mountains and they go through this adventure together and save the world (from something I haven't come up with yet); the guardians of the earth restore the girl to her original form and everyone lives happily ever after (Okay maybe not, but this story is still a sketch).
So, onto the drawing.
The problem is, I kinda need help with a few things. I'm thinking of making the sword a bit longer and the boots a bit less sock-looking. But the most important thing I need help with is the NAME!!! I can't think of a name for this girl! DX My dad suggested Scathe, and I was thinking Scythe, but those are more nicknames for when she is a loner. I need a name for when she was a normal girl. Of course, you can also give me nickname suggestions as well. Onto the looks... ThisIsSirius suggested making her a ginger. I think reddish hair WOULD look nice on her, along with blue eyes. I want to put a symbol somewhere on here, possibly on her chest plate and/or her shoulder plate. I'm also debating on the color of her armor. Those blades sticking out of her fingers are retractable; and I still haven't come up with a good explanation of how she can move that hand if she's missing half her arm.
But anyway, any suggestions on the name and character build are welcome!
