@imagine-that-cap @ladyjthewriter I found some Scarlet Witch concept art and I got inspired to draw Rory Stark’s Civil War battle suit! I was disappointed that the costume department didn’t give Wanda her cool helmet in the movies, because I really liked that look; I decided to use it for Roo lol :D
After all, she’s a telepath, gotta protect that noggin!
And you know as soon as she came to Tony and was like “hey dad you have any scrap metal because I need to make myself some cool headgear” it was all over and Mr. Protection steps in and starts mixing and cooling and heating metals and naming a bunch of reasons why she should have done this sooner and safety must come first and yada-yada-yada…yeah…overprotective Daddy Tony…but naturally his little girl still is going to kick some butt :D

Sandroos

These intelligent mammals hail from arid deserts and savannah regions. Sandroos share the characteristic plated bodies, long necks/ears, and wide tails. They have 4 claws on each hand, and 3 rounded toenails on each foot. They generally have poor eyesight but make up for it with their incredible hearing. You can always count on a Sandroo to hear something you probably didn’t want them to hear so be careful what you say around them! They have a wicked kick and are excellent at hopping across dunes which would otherwise be untreversible. Many other races refer to them as “Sandhoppers.”

A typical Sandroo home is square in shape and made from sandstone. They will often create awnings made from cloth to drape over the front as decoration. The windows are narrow to keep out the sand but still allow airflow.

Most Sandroos that you meet will be wary of you at first, but are quick to extend their trust if you have goods to trade with them. Many of them will never leave their farms and spend most of their time defending it from thieves and bandits. Farming is a tiresome and thankless task but they take great pride in it.

Sandroos are excellent cultivators of the desert and are incredibly skilled at growing crops in the sand. They have a penchant for earth-based magic which is used almost exclusively for tending to their farms. Probably their most prized crop is the Water Melon. No, not watermelon. Water Melon:

This odd fruit has a jelly-like texture. It jiggles in the hand, and when bitten into can be quite messy. It has a sweet flavor and is remarkably cool and refreshing. They make fantastic jams, and are also mixed into drinks for a nice flavor.

Raffas

Tall and wooly animals with moderate intelligence. Incapable of linguistics and have mostly primal instincts. They live and travel in herds. Their long necks allow them to reach the precious fruits atop Cactus trees.

Quite often, Sandroos and other desert dwellers will keep them domestically and use their wool for clothing. That might seem strange for such a hot climate, but Raffa wool has a very special cooling property unlike any other. The fibers are filled with ice magic that reacts proportionately to the heat. The hotter it is, the cooler the fibers. It’s not unusual to see desert dwellers wearing this specially made clothing.
