Study - Mediator Ooccoo by UndyingNephalim Study - Mediator Ooccoo by UndyingNephalim
I felt it would be fun to make a study of every Zelda character once in awhile, both canon and OC that I have drawn or will come to draw in my series and maybe shed light as to why I chose their designs.

"Your timing is flawed as always. " -Mediator Ooccoo.

Full name and other titles: Mediator Ooccoo, High Emissary of Demoko

Appearances: Twilight Princess (canon), Gerudo Wars, Time's Menagerie (non-canon)

Design Notes: I was supposed to do another study, but I'm ahead in Gerudo Wars and at long last my biggest secret was revealed. In Twilight Princess, the Oocca, these demonic little freaky chicken beings with no workable appendages, supposedly constructed these massive cities in the sky, as well as the Temple of Time. It got me thinking.... how the heck did these little beings manage to construct something so impressive? I started thinking about the Dominion Rod, an item supposedly created by the Oocca as well. It's capable of animating stone. What if that technology could animate intricate bodies of stone? What if the Oocca at one time used something like the Dominion Rod to enhance their way of life, and eventually their reliance led their bodies to become all but useless through time. Then perhaps some catastrophic event left them as nothing but how they were in Twilight Princess... little harmless chickens unable to proceed through evolution and forced to live in what little glory they had constructed? It's late, and maybe I'm just crazy. I got different plans for them obviously. But yes, as far as the design goes I based most of it off of the Dominion Rod.

I liked the Mediator in Time's Menagerie. She had a diverse backstory, being rejected by her mother, Genetrix when she refused to heed her expectations to work for Neok, Wizard of Restless Night and Ooccoo's father, and choosing to work directly with Demoko.


But then she gets sucked into the space-time vortex created by the now-corrupt Demoko's second, giant mechanical head form. Whatever happened to her? Was she disintegrated by the vortex? If so, I'm not surprised anymore. You do have a rep for killing off good characters. (Mido, Demoko, Saria, and Zaleen [Okay, that last one I'm not so sure of.])

Looks like the Oocca just took a level in badass.

I have a request.
There's an idea for a fanfic within me bubbling up to the surface, and I can't help but ask, may I include these concepts and design for the Oocco race in it, with full credit given to you of course?

Hehe I don't, as long as all the credit stuff is taken care of as usual. ^^;
Arpeggio9 Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2010
Of course. I always give credit were it is due.

THAT is freaky cool! Would make an interesting boss fight, amongst other story hooks.

Lol the only difference between you and him... You make this look good. I don't know how many times I bashed myself for accidentally hitting the Ooccoo pots.

Y'know, I wondered that same thing, about how the heck these armless little Cuccos had built these mighty works, but didn't make the connection with the Dominion Rod. That makes total sense. :nod:

How'd you get the transparent gauzy bits of the robes? is it photomanip, or a layer thing?
