__________________The Manchurian crane (Grus japonensis), more rarely called the red-crowned crane, is one of the most endangered species in the crane family. The population low point for this species, which occurs in East Asia, was probably in the years immediately following World War II. The population has since recovered in some areas. However, in the last 60 years, large areas of habitat have been converted to agricultural land. Toward the end of the 20th century, there were approximately 1700 to 2000 individuals living in the wild. The IUCN therefore classifies this species as critically endangered. In the People's Republic of China, it now belongs to the "protected species of the first degree" together with the giant panda and the golden snub-nose.
This look was inspired by the crest of the Red Crane. Cranes have been seen on samurai crests in the past (and also on the 1000 yen bill and as the official logo of Japan's national airline, JAL). They are also known for their expressive dance rituals. I think this fits very well with my thief, who is skillful with her weapons.
The Ancient Canthan armor parts (shoulder and boots) I combined with Requiem Chestguard, because everything has feather similar patterns. In addition came Medium Antique Leggings, which stand for martial arts character. Although I like my charrakter better without headpiece, as headpiece I chose Council Watch Faceguard, because that also resembles wings on the cheeks.
The armor colors repeat color scheme Red Crane weapons: red-white-black.
