Chozo Priestess by Mykiio Chozo Priestess by Mykiio
An Idea I had for a character in the metroid universe. I tried to imagine what a chozo in their armor looked like since Samus' armor is based off of their design. This is what I came up with.
This is a Holy Priestess Warrior, holding a powerful sacred artifact (which one? you'll have to shoot it to find out).

Chozos are from the videogame Metroid copyright Nintendo

In MP3: Corruption, there's actually a statue of a Chozo on Elysia, and the Chozo statue is wearing a Varia Suit; pretty cool to look at. You did a great job of rendering the bird-style armor. :)

Thanks ^_^ It wasn't easy figuring how a chozo would look since there's hardly any reference material out there to work with.

True, very true. There are the ghosts and a few statues in Metroid Prime 1, and the armored statue hidden in MP3: Corruption, but there really isn't too much out there. :P You did a marvelous job. :)

Am planning on modding a set of Varia armor for my Blaziken to cosplay as a chozo, this'll make a great guide for some of the modifications, particually on the helmet! ^_^

Its a 3D building chat client really, won't be drawing it.

Here's the attempt I did earlier at applying the beak armor: [link]

This was before seeing your pic, and will attempt to move the breather tubes to a similar layout to your drawing next time my internet is strong enough to handle this game again!

This is great! I love it, I'm a big Metroid fan, I especially like its alien races, with tge Chozo being my third favorite (1st & 2nd being Ridley and Luminoth respectively) I feel like you did an excellent job with the design, and coloring, and everything. But can't but wonder why her armor lacks a gun-arm, but oh well, splash.

she doesn't have her armaments on her right now, I haven't thought of what her main weapons would be, maybe some kind of tech savvy polearm...

Awesome. I guess she wouldn't really have weapons like Samus since this is a priestess and Samus is a warrior.

Yeah, and also I imaged the priestess to be a close quarters combat specialist, mainly in defensive/restraining fighting.

Hmm, didn't think of it that way, that's a pretty nice...uh...noticing? examination? well, ya get what I mean. I like how she's holding that power up like she wants to open it but can't, or at least that's how I'm seeing it. I wonder, have you've played metroid prime 2?

Yes, I've played Metroid 2. The power up she's holding is an artifact she crafted.

Interesting design. Since not much exists on chozo outside of fan fiction, I would be curious to know if this character would have a place in the lore. Either way, believable within the universe, well chosen colors, solid design. Love it.

This is a beautiful design. And legit, too! They should have been wearing armor, at least SOME of the statues should have.

Chozo's are masters of uniting spirituality with technology. She has honed both skills to protect those she has sworn to look after.
