A Betta Saga artisan keycaps

In the previous chapters of our Eden chronicles, we’ve come to learn about the mighty Dragons of the East Sea, and the cheerfully dynamic Koi fish in the Zen pond, both filled with absolute essence from the magical world of Eden.

Dating back to the late 18th century, Betta fish has long been a legendary warrior symbol in the Eden world, arousing curiosity from every corner of this land as everyone wanted to capture, tame, or see them at least once in real life. But in the early days, hardly did anyone know that Betta is extremely territorial, carrying a massive sense of aggression in their blood, especially the males. Let me elaborate in this scenario for you to imagine more easily on how aggressive Betta can get. If inhabiting together in the same area, they can attack each other until death if the surrounds are too close. Simply put, Betta fish are certainly not friendly neighbors. They are solitary soldiers. 

 
That’s what happens between their own species. When it comes to a different creature from Betta, things will get worse. They will do whatever it takes to protect their homes and brutally chase away the intruders in a manner that not a single soul in Eden can picture a fish is capable of. Interestingly enough, what they ought to appear is far from what they truly are. Betta fish are blessed with their magnificently flared gills, coated by brilliant shades of color where you can feel as if you just get lost in a paradise of heavenly silk. Their large flowing fins with gentle curves on the edge only complement the perfection of their beauty. Just like that, Bettas have fooled a lot of living souls with their gorgeous impression when they first encounter with them. 
 
To no man’s surprise, Bettas’ outer characteristics all demonstrate a distinctive power, altogether allowing them to fight even beyond water territories. For a typical Betta fish, heads and fins are their strongest parts; other than that, gills are what can help you identify an extraordinarily ferocious Betta. The more colorful they get, the more dangerous that warrior can be. During combat, Bettas will usually use their heads of steel to hit the enemies first, to create an overwhelming effect and inject instant fear to them. Next come the fins. Apart from swimming, these ruthless marine soldiers use their thin yet sturdy waving pad to crept through the rivals and attack them with an ultimately quick surprise factor. As you can see, Bettas aren’t called the legendary warriors for no reason.

This unique contrast between Bettas’ inner and outer features truly makes them a special battlefield material rarely seen in the history of Eden. Though thousand years of existence, the human mortals dwelling in the East finally found a way to master these Bettas with their patience and extreme effort, since then fighting together in countless crusades to explore new lands and new horizons. From now on, if you ever stumble upon any sights of the East of Eden, keep in mind that they’re all made possible by Bettas, and that’s how you know you’ve been to where the legends – Bettas – were.

How to control the infinite Eden waves!

First thing first, it’s the fish swirling inside the keycaps that mean the most. They have many small details such as carved scales and eyes, so the drawing of each pattern requires extreme care from our Jelly Key artists. The scales and details will also retain color, making it especially tricky to correct if smearing. It should take about 5-7 minutes to paint each paint layer of each fish.

To fishes with larger and more curved sizes, it’s much more complex and intricate to anchor the fish because they do not only float horizontally but also vertically. The first fish prototypes were secured with their whole body, but the next version is only anchored from a small contact point on the fish body, so the pasting is more difficult as it’s easy to fall off and has to be glued again.

Shaping the Eden rays in the spacebar is a huge challenge, in particular: creating colored rays to form lining effect will take around 1 hour before loading into the incubator and 12 hours more to be frozen. Additionally, due to their large size, it is hard to align the color rays without covering the fish; and the removal rate also gets higher to produce completed keycaps.
