The Automatons are the only inhabitants of Grimstad. As robots each are purpose built to perform a specific task. Some possess basic problem-solving knowledge and many have the ability to speak. The Automatons’ capabilities are limited to only what is required for their assigned role. Any Automaton that tries to move beyond their original programming is disassembled immediately and rebuilt.
The Automatons are still in the design phase and being worked on by the Horrible Unicorn team so all we have is to show you is some of the early concept art for the characters. With Legacy of the Copper Skies still so early in development we’ve reached the end of our character spotlights… for now.

After taking a look at Legacy of the Copper Skies‘ two player controlled protagonists Tir and Isen in our first two character profiles it’s time to turn our gaze to the background to learn more about the inhabitants of their worlds. This week we’re featuring a look at the Eburians who inhabit the lush green world of Tir’s Ebura.
The people of Ebura are a tight-knit community, relying on little more than hard work to provide food, shelter, safety and companionship. In order to survive, they need to work together, and they do it well. Stability is incredibly important to them and, as a whole, they can be resistant to progress if it threatens to alter their status quo and their communal way of life.
The Eburians’ lives are thrown into disarray as the worlds merge and only the combined efforts of Tir and Isen can protect their way of life.
Stay tuned for more details on the characters that make up the worlds of Legacy of the Copper Skies.
After meeting Isen in last week’s character profile, it’s time to meet the other playable hero of Legacy of the Copper Skies, Tir.
Tir is a stoic hunter of great skill. In his world chaos is a fact of life. With so many of Ebura’s creatures, people, and inhabitants all doing as they please things can get a bit out of control sometimes. This is where Tir steps in. He alone keeps Ebura in balance, and to do that sometimes things need to be destroyed so that others may thrive. Unfortunately, Tir is often quick to anger, and despite his good intentions things can quickly get out of hand. This is why he enjoys a predominantly solitary life in the forest.
- Weapon: Spear, Shield, Teeth, Fists
- Basic Attack: Spear Slash
- Charge Attack: Power Thrust
- Special Ability: Tir is able to transform, and by doing so he becomes a powerful rage beast.
- Destroyer: Tir is a force to be reckoned with. He’s prone to anger, and capable of destroying most obstacles in his path. Fortunately, destroyed objects often provide Isen with the resources she needs for her tinkering.
As we continue with the development of Legacy of the Copper Skies we wanted to share a little bit more information about the characters that make up the world of the game. Today we will take a look at Isen one of the two main protagonists that you will control throughout the adventure in Legacy of the Copper Skies.
Isen is a gifted inventor. Logic and reason are virtues she constantly strives to uphold. She alone built Grimstad and its robotic inhabitants from the first bolt up. To her the world is a giant collection of parts, and it is her job to transform them, but now that it’s complete she struggles to keep her mind busy. She can barely sit still and is constantly searching for her next discovery, hoping to find something to keep her circuits stimulated.
Isen hails from the world known as Grimstad, a land of scrap metal, wire, and energy crystals. Her time is taken up by tinkering and exploring, constantly wanting to be challenged. The adventures that await her in Legacy of the Copper Skies will ensure that she is not soon bored.
- Weapon: Custom-made Laser Rifle, Wits
- Basic Attack: Laser Shot
- Charged Shot: Hyper Beam Shot
- Special Ability: Portable Portal Generator
- Tinkerer: Isen is able to combine gathered resources together and create various contraptions, bots, and other assorted useful gadgets.
