...I'm not sure I personally like either of those. I like Gilgaths more, but still I think we could do much better. It must be remembered these are among the only submissions of Rush ever, and I think they're a decent idea to go off of. It would be nice if there was a semblance to Syne that's noticeable when the player figures that out.

I always thought his armour would be partially hidden by, not a cloak, but a shroud type thing. If you understand that at all ^^;;

I think the first one has the personality type needed to make a 'full party.' There simply has to be a robust bearded man.

I don't like either of them tbh.
They just don't say "Rush" to me :/

I agree with the aging thing. Not necessarily going thin, but a receeding double crown thing that looks like the number 3 lying down. Devil hair almost, or remember Vageta's hairline?
I have since brainstormed what I perceive Rush to look like. I have done it in a form of spider's web so apologies if it's formatted a little messily.
Now all I need to do is make some sketches, using a print off of Syne as reference. We basicly want a related, older version of Syne. Ok onwards:
He is in the 'Protectors', a group determined to prolong the war as long as poissible so no tyranny would fall on the continent as result of peace time. This means lots of battles. Lots and lots of them. He would undoubtedly suffer a few nicks and scrapes and so would have some scarring, and tanned flesh from being outside alot travelling and fighting. He would be quite dirty and scruffy (in terms of skin dirt and hair condition) from living it rough because of being perpetually on the move, searching for his family. He would also be quite muscly, bulked up with lugging alot of armour in his life and his huge battle axe. His eyes would be weary, because living outside rough doesn't make for comfortable sleeping. I also see him with stubble but mostly a full beard. Although this should suit him, it would most likely be the cause of not having time or patient to sit down and meticulousy shave regularly. (reminds me of myself, ha!)
Notice how I said he'd worn alot of armour in his life? I mean he would have had to wear very heavy armour at long periods in his travels on the cooler Titan continent, as the climate would allow him to, whereas Kay Pacha (is this mispelled on the map, I thought it was Kay Paccha?) would be very hot and humid, forcing him to change into lightweight armour. Although any armour on Titan continent could have been forged by professional blacksmiths and/or tailored, he would have had to improvise his own armour upon arrival on Kay Pacha and so this could be something like wood bark maybe? This might need further brainstorming!
Something fropm what Dev said about his armour being effective but old and rusted - perhaps he would strip down all the fancy armour trimmings and leave himself with a front and back metal plate?
The last branch of this storm is the fact he is Syne's father. This is a very big point we need to have echo in what he looks like as we want to pretty much see an older version of Syna, but mutated in war / experience / anguish so much that it doesn't become apparent until the plot reviels this point. This would mean:
Same or similar characteristics. Big similarities between father-son would be hazel, almost slight-like eyes, pointy, almost button-like nose and broadly set body. Syne's hair is light brown in sort of messy bangs. Rush is older than Syne so his hair should eb alot lighter, almost like a washed out brown. He has lived it rough as well so his hair should have more messy bangs - shown by thinner bangs in more random direction, but not so random to look unlike Syne. See Syne's concept and you see what I mean. Other then the greying hair, his hair line would maybe be receding with age. Imagine a lying down 3, as I mentioned above.
I have also noticed that Syna wears a bandana and wrist-ribbons of same colour. Perhaps this fabric comes from part of his past - and Rush would have some of the same material - perhaps around his biceps or on axe handle (or both!)
NOTE: Please take the above with a pinch of salt. This is my brainstorm of how I would see Rush and so would need validating by Dev/Temp to be taken as definate. By all means continue my brainstorming, guys!
