History

Military-style graphics have existed since the days before iOS Graal. However, the first mass-issued uniform bodies in the Graal Military Community were introduced in the State. The body that preceded the original State body edit was known as "Detective Body", and was previously sold in-game.

Shield uniforms were in use in Imperia and the State before the introduction of bodies. Since the earliest introduction of uniforms in the State, uniforms have steadily evolved. During the fifth era of the State, Auel Vist implemented a "Collar Head" (commonly known as an Auel Head), which had a collar on the head to match the State's bodies. Collar heads saw extensive use throughout the years, with many individuals within the State requesting their own from Auel, or taking it upon themselves to create their own. In addition to the collar heads, other additions such as capes, regalias, epaulets, sashes, and color variants have been implemented in various uniforms. Often, the leader of a guild will hold a unique uniform.

Ever since the first State uniforms were introduced, the world of Graal Military graphics has become vast. Uniforms you may find can range from entirely original artwork such as Aurean and New Frontier Republic uniforms, created by Kevlar Vaughn, all the way to the countless edits and recolours of State uniforms.

Uniforms Depot & Graphics Agencies

Ever since the introduction of military-style graphics, depots have arose and archived collections of uniforms and shields from all eras of the Graal Military Community. The most prominent ones are Winry's Memorial Graphics Library and the Nekron Graal Archive. Some graphic agencies have also been established with the purpose of producing art (digital and pixel art) and giving exposure to artists. The current known agencies are the Forgery by Octane Feurnoux, and the Atwell Corporation by Perseus Dax. However, all commissions consist of payment.
