The Dark Keeper lies in the depths of the shadows of Arctos Regnum's great temple and is the second great balancer of the world. Atercuratrix's powers consist of dark energy as well as plague power, and her very presence gives off a cold, horrific vibe and her aura feels like thousands of screaming, writhing souls. Because of her initial dislike of Spiritus and the nature of her power, she is considered to be a demon and is thoroughly feared even by her own people, commonly referred to as Arctos Regnum's six-armed god of death. Along with her frightening Dark power, she can also manifest six halberd-axes of which she uses in melee combat.
Of the eight Keepers, Atercuratrix is considerably the most feared in the legends, but ironically is not evil and rather greatly misunderstood; Atercuratrix has kept many aspects of her former self intact and therefore is arguably the most Spiritai-like in mentality among all Keepers. Because of this, she has many quarrels with her counterpart Latercuratrix and the two never get along although they cannot balance the world without one another. Atercuratrix's reputation and legendary infamy makes her a target of Ologanian Dark Spiritus as well as other kinds of Spiritus, especially the Light Spiritus, which is why she does not like them; she has extreme trust issues even towards her people and views everyone as antagonistic unless they can truly prove otherwise.
I wanted to do full digital drawings of Atercuratrix and Latercuratrix since I began doing so with the others....so I will draw Latercuratrix again as well along with the four remaining Keepers that need to be drawn in full. The Keepers are hard to draw.....but I like the result. The original version of this is 16:9 ratio, but I wanted the details on Ater to be visible enough.
