Elloello!~ This isn't a place to introduce myself, so I'll be brief. I am a girl gamer, but I am also a girl gamer who wishes to get into the game design industry. I haven't been on a real Gears streak lately... In fact, I'm not even sure if I have been on one at all... BUT, I made this first piece like... A year or two ago...? Two, I think, and I've always liked it.
To my friends, it's called the 'I-will-eat-you', or the more popular 'I-will-kill-you', but as for me... I never even gave this thing an official name. Woe is me.

It was taken by my camera. I DO have a scanner, but I didn't have it on me at the time (Pfft, I won't carry it around even if you paid me.), and i have NO clue where the picture is anymore.
The top text is what I could have it do..
One was drag a fallen gear away from anyone who could save him (While if two got together on one Gear, they could split him in half.)
It was NOT mountable, but more like a war hound. (It's pretty sizable, though.)
It would be highly curious, to the point that it would pay more attention to some falling rubble than a still gear.
A grenade would be able to stun it for a short length of time.
Back to the attention thing, it would run faster if a Gear was running from it, rather than just standing and shooting.
Uhm... I forgot the rest.~
"All Rifters have a set of wings that have 2 fingers, and as stated before, they have 2 antennae. If they are on the ground, they can sense vibrations through the earth, and air. Sound waves included in the vibrations. A normal Rifter can tell you when something is coming. A well practiced Rifter can tell you how many total. An expert one can even tell you what type of creature is above you, and the exact amount of each. Rifters who stay in the sky more than the land can predict air currents and weather accurately.
All have a set of strong back legs to launch themselves in the air, and they typically walk on all fours.
There are different kinds of Rifters, each with 'jobs' they were meant to do. Glider Rifters fly above most other creatures, and you can consider them the snipers, or spotters of the sky. They have much larger wings than any other class, and lankier bodies. A side-class of the Glider is the Assault, who boasts longer wings than it's cousin, which causes them to out-fly them in speed. They tend to dive-bomb targets, and hunt them down within a short time frame.
Now the basic Rifter is the jack of all trades. They fly and run well, and they have nice strength. Then comes their side-class, which are basic Rifters, only mini. Bantams are ground scouters, and they use their small size to their advantage.
The final 2 are ground orientated, with one not being able to fly at all. Hunters are the Assaults of the ground, they excel at fast land travel, however, they can still fly in emergencies. The last class is a Burrower Rifter, and they make the caves in the Rifter's hideaway. They are strong, lumbering giants, with strong claws and arms.
All forms refuse to be tamed by locust, however, with time and patience, they will trust humans. There aren't many captive ones, but the few that are make to be very excellent partners on the battlefield."
Enjoy a FULL WIP of the RIFTER:
Oh, I have 4 Rifter characters myself, already.
-My main one is Royale, a BEAST of an average rifter, nearly double the size and able to take down a Brumak (2 or 3 are needed for average size Rifters). He's more deadly on land than in the air, but he is a massive threat to everyone on any front. His 'scales' have a very copper hue. His rider is, well, I haven't a name for her.
-Nuke, whom is partially lambent, is swift, deadly, and absolutely bonkers. He can breathe that odd imulsion stream, or lob a ball of it at a great distance. He's the suicide-bomber of the squad. His rider is named Nick (Forgot what I gave him for a last name...).
-Then we have Reign, a smokey grey colored Rifter whose wings are meant for riding air currents with little effort. The thing that makes him a threat are the two specially designed troika's that hang off his neck and shoulders. His rider was never named.
-And finally, we have a 'bantam' sized, albino Rifter named Medic. He does the obvious, he lugs around the medical equipment. As an albino, he's a soft yellow color with pinkish purple 'scales'. His rider was a surgeon, previously. Also, name forgotten.
- I created a new Bantam Rifter named Pepper, he's mainly a community Rifter, to be used by anyone at any time. He has no main 'rider' due to this, but Royale's rider will take him out now and then if Royale would be more of a nuisance than an aid. Pepper has the basic 'locust' coloration.
All of the Rifters 'names' are really their nicknames. Their names are made up of 2 words, and can have a pun to them.
Royal: Battle Royale
Nuke: Nuklear Warfare
Reign: Bullet Reign
Medic: Mad Medic
Pepper: Pepper Spray
