Recyclers Wear Purple: Giltin the Scythe by KD476 Recyclers Wear Purple: Giltin the Scythe by KD476
Sorry for the absence of pics. I've been lazy.

I've been working on a design for a scythe person for a while. I had a lot of design ideas, but none of them felt... right. After a few tries and a bit of research, I think I got one right.

So meet Giltin: mother, gardener, recycler, and scythe woman. Works at the junkyard, which for a robot is pretty much the equivalent of a graveyard. Don't worry, she only chops off the heads of those that are already dead.

For inspiration, I've been looking at different personifications of death. The Lithuanian one piqued my interest the most and it seemed fitting for a scythe. The goddess of death there was Glitine, described as an old woman with a long blue nose and a poisoned tongue. (Which is why I'm planning to have Giltin know the attack "Venom Drool")

Why purple? I heard in Japan, purple is the color of, you guessed it, death.
