Originally inspired by my desire to make a traditional medieval fantasy cleric.

As to clerics. Historically there were no battle clerics in the medieval fantasy since. A cleric was another name for a priest and any person who received an office in a church such as deacon, priest or bishop. I believe the medieval fantasy image of a cleric evolved from historical religious militaristic orders such as the Templar order and the Teutonic order. They were generally soldiers of some breed (and some were actual monks); they took vows and donned robes over their armour. This is where the robes mostly featured on clerics comes from.
I feel the robe is one of the strongest identifying features of a cleric and I could not settle for anything less the authentic. I'm very happy with her armour. It's mostly historically accurate and I love the ornate details. It's funny that the mace is so strongly associated with the cleric (thanks to dungeons and dragons), when historically they were not used over any other weapon, the sword was actually the most common. Still I couldnâEUTMt bring myself to give her a sword. The mace has ingrained and identifies itself too strongly with this character type (See, I do bow to fantasy over medieval when I feel itâEUTMs appropriate ^_^).

Her name is Vesta Rehmella. She's an important character in my book but comes in after the first three I've planned to write. She comes from the kingdom of Sve'dan, an old rich and powerful nation, very corrupt. Raised in an abbey most of her life due to an uncaring father. Knighted in opposition to the sexual restrictions of her day. Socially praised when she killed her father but was inwardly inconsolably shamed. Returned to the abbey intending to spend the rest of her life in penance. Then received a call to fight evil for the church and hoped this would gain her forgiveness.

Looks strong!

I can imagine she's efficient in purging the unholy...
Nice backstory, and the armor looks really classy and believable.

Overall this checks out, but there are a few problem areas.
the fabric doesnt flow as properly around her crotch as it does everywhere else. I cant sense much mass.
Im not to sure on the armor texture, but that could just be the shading. the shadows would make the character stand out much more and look much better if they were implemented fully.
i'd check the left arm too, the foreshortening looks a little off.

good stuff yo.
