Under the Aegis is a webcomic by Vimeddiee.
The story of Under the Aegis is about the seven so called Wielders, people who are chosen at birth to be, well, the wielder of a weapon own to their race. If one is to die, they all die. They are in a battle against time to find the seventh and last Wielder, and to maybe, hopefully, be the first ones to accomplish their destiny. That is as for as long as nobody interferes…
The protagonists of the story are, of course, the Seven wielders, all originating from another race.
The first one we are introduced to is Mattie, a sweet, swordwielding girl.
Next up would be Dorian, huge and wearing an eye-patch, he wields the dagger.
Nen, caring prince of Thalassa, wields the trident.
Gawain, a carefree person, as his wings would characterize him, has arrows to fight with.
Sienna, hotblooded and always up for a hunt, is more than happy to use her spear.
Samurai, levelheaded and of an extremely quiet nature, wields the katana with immense grace.
And lastly we have Shiloh, who will stay a mistery for quite some time.
The art is simply put, very, very pretty. It’s colourful and neat, the people depicted always have correct anatomy, and the backgrounds look breathtaking. All in all, the art matches the story’s theme, and what more can you wish for?
Aaaaand some fanart to round it up!
