Imagine your classic medieval fantasy world (with a many island divided geography and a steampunk twist). There were the dominant races, goblin, humans, dwarves, elves and etc... Then the capital of the kingdom (human one) was attacked by an army of undead and other "evil" minorities that were considered dangerous like trolls, naga, some elves and others. Calling themselves THE NEW EMPIRE, commanded by Yusar, a 4 meters tall (13 feet) skeleton necromancer, obviously extremely powerful and wise, completely taking over the capital. And after killing every single inhabitant of the capital, the empire stated expanding, taking over the nearby islands, getting rid of the dominant races, slaving them or killing mercilessly. 80 years of war between the new empire ( or just empire, however you wanna call them) and other kingdoms. So, inside this conflict, a group of many different races, even some rebels from the empire army got together, and they fight the empire from behind the curtains, not fighting against the armies, but their leaders. That's the alliance, the small group of people (not only human) that had their lives ruined by the empire, so they fight together.
Steampunk-Cyborg Draconian (Humanoid Dragon)
Has one mechanical wing (right), a mechanical arm (right), a mechanical leg (left), and the tip of his tail is like a bronze mace.

Krag, he was once a normal lad, and adventurer of sorts! During one of his quests out into the world, he was near-fatally injured, and as the world faded to black, a large shadow slowly enveloped him and he felt his slowly dying body lift off into the air as he spiraled into unconsciousness. He awoke in a cave, nestled next to a large mass, a dragon. The dragon watched him warily as he tried to rise, falling back into place, exhausted from his injuries. Looking down, he noticed no blood was leaking from the wounds in his stomach, but something seemed wrong. He lifted his shirt to reveal where the deep gash once was, a layer of interlocking scales on his stomach. He turned towards the large beast, the softness that had previously shown on her face gone, replaced by stern seriousness. He had heard myths that some dragons could speak, and as if reading his mind, the dragoness spoke. "As you might have noticed, I have healed your wounds at a great cost. Be warned, I took pity on your dying body because recently I lost my brood to a dark force, my eggs stolen, for who know's what evil purposes. I have healed you using my own blood, and the price you must pay for this is great, your body will mutate, becoming part dragon, but this is not all of a curse. You will have skin of steel, unbreachable by even the sharpest blades, claws as sharp as diamonds. I ask of you only one thing, to find the being that stole my children, and pass on the hatred I feel for it into the blade that shall strike it down. Go now child, find the others who seek this same fate, join their ranks, and fight for me, the one who gave you life, when others would have devoured your helpless carcass." With that, Krag retrieved what was left of his gear, and left the cave of his dragonmother, in search of the Alliance he was informed of, and also in search of it, the dark being that he knows can be none but one being - Yusar...
During his travels, Krag suffered many an injury fighting the Empire, slowly mutating in the draconic beast he is today, and even after his transformation was complete, he suffered a great loss. During an ambush in his travels, Krag was injured greatly, and he saved his comrades at the cost of an arm and a leg - literally. He survived, but was forever handicapped. The Empire believed they had removed a valuable fighter from action, but not long after their believed victory in the war, a highly skilled metalworker forged him new limbs, crafted from the finest metal, draconic steel, a material that fit him unusually well. Using his newly acquired apendages, Krag continued to fight the alliance, determined to fulfill his promise, routinely visiting his dragonmother, informing her of his victories and defeats in the field of battle...
I'd create it myself, but I can't do humanoid figures, and I don't honestly have time. IF you'd be willing to draw it, and I do manage to win, I'll deduct 50 from my winnings. Plus I'd love to see Krag come to life in your art style.
Feel free to edit his backstory in any way you like as long as you keep the main jist of it, the fatal injury, save by a dragon, draconic mutation, horrible injury pt.2, mechanical limbs.
My characters are Mina and Hito, a elf and a ogre. Mina used to be one of the 12 princess of the last kingdom the empire took over, now she is a warrior of the alliance.

So while the civil are been evacuated, Mina asks Hito to join them but he refuses cause he says he is weak and he doenst know anything about been a rebel but later Mina discovers he is an inventor and he can create very useful stuff, not only weapons. So she convince him to be her partner and help her along the way to take down the new empire. Is not something complicated
