Lola and Einhander Concept by UnderwoodART Lola and Einhander Concept by UnderwoodART
This is Lola Strasburg and her mech, Einhander, for my original story, "Dirge".
I wanted to approach the concept of a lolita character, while removing the sense of 'exploitation' and giving her a deeper reason for needing to be young. Similarly, Einhander is a more realistic approach to mechs, trying to make its parts seem crude and utilitarian, while still being beyond our present capabilities. Being a exhibition prototype at two-thirds its intended size, this vehicle was useless to loot by others due to its custom made, down-scaled parts, and the lower-than-expected caliber of its guns (using a modified entry system for handgun rounds, rather than actual minigun ammunition). Due to its size, an adult would not be able to actually ride in this machine, requiring a much smaller frame like Lola's.
Lola's obsession with the mech as a young child caused her to seek out pre-war media featuring similar themes, which lead to her finding a handful of anime media, which she in turn modelled herself on. This passion lead her to figuring out the controls for the ancient relic, and became the single most important defensive unit of her town.
