About the site.
Chikara began as a fanlisting on September 16, 2005, and was later turned into a shrine as well at some point after the game came out in North America. The fanlisting I had applied for in advance just because I wanted to have the fanlisting for him. Little did I know, however, that Ike would become one of my absolute favorite male characters in the series. Unfortunately work on the shrine had been non-existent for quite some time and I had no inspiration to work on it. Then one night as I was trying to sleep the idea popped into my head to make a mini-shrine, covering just the basics on Ike and why I like him. Honestly, I don't know why I didn't think to do something like this sooner. I don't know if I will ever finish that Ike shrine but at least having some sort of dedication for him works for me.
Currently we are on version 8 of the site which uses one of Ike's Fire Emblem 0 (Cipher) TCG artwork. The layout was made by me using Adobe Photoshop 7.0 and then coded by hand using Notepad. The images used were found at Fire Emblem Wiki and patterns used were found at Subtle Patterns. Fonts used are called AR DECODE and Cambria. Previous layouts used may be found at my layout archive.
Here you'll find all fanlistings currently affiliated with Chikara. If you are interested in being one then feel free to contact me. Fire Emblem related fanlistings only please.
