Design Strategy

Frontal Display

As he is justice incarnate, while also being an incredibly holy person, we have decided to design him with white as the base foundational color. His white body, mane and armor gives off a spiritual feeling. The golden lining of his armor and pauldrons also gives him a certain high status.


Hylos's staff is very unique, in that it is designed specifically for that of a high priest of the centaurs, possessing great magical power, this golden staff is imbued with the power of a blue sapphire. This staff empowers Hylos with its holy reverence.

High Detailed Display

As Hylos is a tank, we designed him a strong physical form, his single horn also give him a feeling of empowerment, the staff further enhances his aesthetic strength. Hylos truly does look like a vindicator of evil.


No one knows truly what Hylos is thinking, as he broods over the edge of the mountain looking down towards the Land of Dawn. Overlooking the Holy Rock his eternal vigil continues, as the Grand Warden never rests.
