Good Evening from Philadelphia!!!!!
Lexi-Leviathan's inactivity spanned for well over a millennia due to the Fact that Lord-Priest no longer had time, money or womanpower to spare towards figuring out not only how to undo the tele-empathic damage that had built up from the deaths of her pilot-knights!
Never mind that events throughout the empire were spinning out of control as Empress Lust I's ability to actually sustain her empire was beginning to unravel!
So the last thing that was on his mind was trying to continue the costly pet-project that had brought him and his wife some prestige and access directly to Empress Lust-I. When it was becoming more and more obvious that 2-millennia of her decision-making was finally starting to fall apart!
Never mind that Lord-&-Lady Priest had finally made inroads with her and now she was starting to sink fast!
Lady Priest went back over the numbers, because Lexi-Leviathan and her feasibility for national-production did come up!?!?!?
But that was because Empress Lust-I was desperate to get a new-type out onto the field of battle to help her stem the ever advancing tide of both regional-powers that had banded together against her! But also foreign-forces that had traversed barren-plains with the sole-intention of waging war!
The speed of Lexi-Leviathan and the Fact that she was still a functional-prototype that Imperial-bioengineers might be able to figure out how to modify and make work right!?
It was her speed and firepower and ability to take a cunt-n-ass kicking that the Empress wanted! Since the foreign-forces from the barren-plains had clearly known that her empire was on the other side of this vast flatland while she didn't know shit about whoever these far flung fools were!
The Priests knew that with so many enemies seriously threatening, then it would be a waste of resources needed to defend the empire and the last thing the Priest-Family wanted or needed was to ultimately be blamed for having the Empress spend shit on an empty project, so!?
They ended up having to foot the bill, with the full-intent of fudging the end results, because both of them knew that they couldn't figure out nor fix Lexi-Leviathan to make her feasible for national mass-production! So it would be easier to foot the bill. Bullshit about R&D-testing and make up some phony-ass holo-com vids and then ultimately wrap everything up and pretend to suffer big time losses in resources and money!
In hopes to garner more favoritism from the Empress and stave off genuinely bankrupting Priest-Family!
This would pay off after nearly a decade of fakery and fuckery on the part of the Priests! But it would land them in a favorable position all the way around, which would lay the foundation for which Prince-Priest would be born into 700-years later.
It would be Prince-Priest who would finally sit down and figure out how to modify Lexi-Leviathan! While his parents were fighting in a literal civil war for control over the entire central-region of the Azmodian Empire!
Here is Lexi-Leviathan's Original-Form with some base-modifications that Prince-Priest had done, which allowed for Him to remove Her from bio-cryostasis after stabilizing Her....
Working on Lexi-Leviathan....
I spent today coloring Lexi-Leviathan and going over Her Backstory and what Her Life was prior to Priest-13, Prince-Priest, finding Her sitting in the bowels of Priest-Estate's dingy-dusty and defunct dragonshipyard!
I'm certain some of the above may come as a shock as I have clearly just typed the Fact that Priest-13?
Is a Prince...?
More on that later, but I did wanna make it clear that that was not a typo on My Part.
Priest-13 and Prince-Priest are one in the same.
How that has come to happen will be revealed before the month is out starting with Issue-0.
And that also is not a typo, but no it is not a comic book that I am doing.
It'll all make sense sooner than You think.
Coming back around to Lexi-Leviathan...!?
She was an experimental-dragonhorse from Prince-Priest's grandfather's time where the Great-Lord Priest and his dragonhorse-engineers could not correctly figure out how to pull off the merger of Dragoon-genes and Dragonhorse-genes. To produce a Large-Dragonhorse with the capabilities and firepower and tenacity of a Dragoon!
Dragoons are of course massive and are known to rule over Dragons and oft-times create queendoms and empires of Their Own with the sole-purpose of expanding Their Reach for as far as They can exert whatever forces They have.
The Attempt to stuff the genetic-material and most dominant-characteristics of a Dragoon!?
Into the genes of a Dragonhorse, which is meant for usage by other-races for everything from combat to bitches-of-burden to bioengineered-manipulation into Dragontransports for usage of large-scale tasks!?
Developing a method to compress the Dragoon's best-abilities into the body-frame of a Dragonhorse and then find somebody crazy enough to ride that bitch into combat!?
It was an endeavor that was fruitless for centuries! Until Great-Lord Priest was finally able to figure it out and finally get down to the task of being able to bioengineer a Dragonhorse-body with the Dragoon-genes that didn't immediately fail the moment she was removed from her biobirthing-pod!?
Getting that done and not giving up from failure to failure after failure for more failures leading to much failure!!!!!
Was a testament to the patience and perseverance that the Priest-Family once had. Where once the bioengineering-breakthrough was made to be able to complete the merger and get a fully-functioning Dragonhorse-body!?
The next task was getting all of her biotech-systems to function, where the next big problem was the fact that Their Biotech-Brains were ridiculously dysfunctional and unable to show even the slightest signs of self-awareness and autonomy!
The last thing Great-Lord Priest wanted was to create a bunch of mindless-drones that anybody could either steal or straight-up hack into and then use Them against Priest-Family!
Lexi-Leviathan's foremothers would barely become fully-functional and self-aware by the time of Great-Lord Priest's demise. Where Lord Priest, Prince-Priest's Father, would then take over the project and continue to pump all types of resources and womanpower into the actual development of the Priest-Family Dragoonhorse.
For both Lord and Lady Priest, they realized that being able to create a new-type mount would not only bring fame and fortune to Their Invigtu-Family!
But it would also give Them the leg-up on the other Invigtu-Families of the Central-Region and it would open the door to gaining favor with Empress Lust I and Her Imperial-Court!
Especially with her constant expansion-expeditions and aggressive-attacks against her neighboring regions.
Lexi-Leviathan would be bioengineered prior to the War of Ruin and would serve in some of these expeditions but she and her sisters had a number of extremely extensive flaws that simply could not be bioengineered out of her.
The most obvious one being her awkward-size and the inability to create a suitable cockpit for a pilot-knight!
A flaw that Prince-Priest would correct upon finding Lexi-Leviathan floating decommissioned in the abandoned dragonshipyard of His Parents capital-city of Priest-Estate.
The Pilot-Knight of the Priest-Dragoonhorse had to be able to literally withstand not only the ridiculous g-forces generated by the Priest-Dragoonhorse they rode but also the Fact that they had little to no shielding for themselves when directly attacked!?
They also generated an immense amount of psionic-feedback!
And had to be psionically-linked to for Them to function for extended periods of time!
Pilot-Knights had to be modified and conditions to be met to even pilot a Priest-Dragoonhorse were severe with most who tested capable refused simply because for every time they had some of the criteria they lacked others. Which meant they'd have to undergo bio-modification which could alter them in ways they honestly didn't want nor need.
In the End the Priest-Dragoonhorses attracted way too much enemy-attention and if the enemy didn't kill the pilot-knight then the Priest-Dragoonhorse did with their attempts to handle incoming enemy-fire and area-effects and direct-attacks as well as dealing with enemy mounted-units and whatever the fuck else the enemy could offer up as a means to cripelt their big asses!!!!!!
Lexi-Leviathan was decommissioned as simply being the last of Her Kind and the cost was just way too high to keep creating and fielding Her Kind and finding fanatics to even fuckin mount up on her and her sisters!
Lexi-Leviathan had lost plenty of pilot-knights which had also taken its toll on her since she was of course Linked to Them!
With every death for whatever the reasons may or may not have been.
Imprinting and impacting her psyche-spirit and of course slowly but surely eroding her biotech-systems and physical-response-times as it became more and more ingrained in her biotech-brain and data-systems that she simply couldn't keep losing pilot-knights!
Because for each time that They died then a part of Her died with Them!
Finally she ended up a PTSD milk-mess that had to be shoved into a bio-cryopod and shoved somewhere never to be seen heard or even thought of again until nearly a thousand-years later when Prince-Priest was touring the decommissioned dragonshipyard and trying to find out what all his parents had simply scrapped for the sake of scrapping!
