KoA: Lanius by Ascynd KoA: Lanius by Ascynd
Lanius is for the most part a typical Cautes hatchling. Unlike many of his peers however, he lacks any fur or feathers, being covered in fine but tough scales instead, and relying on body fat and a high metabolism to retain warmth. His wings are prodigiously large for his age, and his legs a bit on the short side, but he very young and still developing. Due to his hatchling proportions, he often clambers around on all fours using his wings for extra traction and climbing ability.

Like many dragons, his health and general well being are reflected in the vibrance of his hide, especially the crimson stripes on his face and tail... when he is well, his markings are vivid, but if ill or stressed his colors will dull.

Notes: I won't be offended if when you draw Lanius you choose to simplify his design. As long as you can tell that it's Lanius it's all good. =)

Tiny Star Bullet PERSONALITY Tiny Star Bullet

Arrow leftAggressive:  Lanius likes to tussle with other hatchlings and assert his dominance. Losing doesn't dissuade him much from trying again later.
Arrow leftProtective:  Currently his protectiveness primarily extends to things he thinks he owns. It hasn't really been tested otherwise.
Arrow leftPersistent: Once Lanius sets his little mind to do something it's very difficult to dissuade him. He appears to have a longer than average attention span for his age.
Arrow leftPerceptive: Little escapes his notice, especially if it moves, looks or smells like prey. Lanius seems to have a strong prey drive.
Arrow leftGreedy: Lanius will take as much as he can, and doesn't know how to share. This is especially true where food is concerned.
Arrow leftBold:  This rambunctious hatchling isn't easily frightened, and rarely backs down. He sometimes behaves as if he might not quite be sharp enough to realize when he's in over his head.

Tiny Star Bullet BACKSTORY Tiny Star Bullet

Lanius is expected by most to grow up to be a warrior. This is due in part his parentage, both his parents having been celebrated warriors themselves, but it is in no small part to his physique. It's not that he is an exceptionally large or strong hatchling, but rather his lack of dextrous hands; all but the thumb of his forward limbs are bound up in his wings, leaving him little to manipulate with. This makes the path of a crafter seemingly out of the question for him, and healer difficult at best. At least those wings seem to be quite large for his size and well developed, indicating that he will likely be a very strong flier later in life.

From the moment of his hatching, Lanius has in fact displayed some non-physical qualities that lend support to the idea that he will be well suited for a fighter's life. He displays an aggressive and dominant personality, which he sometimes exerts against his peers in the creche, regardless of their relative age. He can also be stubborn, willful and persistent. This makes him a bit of a troublemaker, although he is not too much for his caretakers to handle. His coordination also seems to be developing quickly as well, but his speech ability is a bit behind the average... he often still seems to prefer making loud noise to using his words.

Sure! Can't do it today though, I have a lot of projects to finish... but feel free to drop some ideas my way via notes. We could hash up an art RP in the meantime and have plenty of time for post and response that way if you're interested. =)

you'd be surprised how fragile Streem ends up being XD alrighty, do you prefer script or paragraph and where would we be roleplaying?

Paragraph is good, though I don't mind single or double line entries when it's appropriate... where would be good for you? Not sure how its usually done in this group.

oh we do it everywhere and anywhere, though I see comment roleplays less commonly, but you can always be the first~

as for other way to rp, there's skype (also a KoA skype group chat if you wanna join that) Google Docs, and notes. I am fine with comments tho, but on what thing would you not mind there being a million comments on?

Ascynd Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Google doc sounds good, that would probably be the least messy. Just send me a link. Then we could copy it over to a literature entry and post it after. Plus if it stays up we can always continue if it doesn't get done in one day.

SparkySpro Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2016
oh there's no roleplay (at least not here) that is ever done in a day.

I do like google docs because it let's you see the other person typing right then and there, but since it requires email I am a bit wary about it with people I don't already know. But from what you're saying, I can just like note you a link to one? do I have to set it to public edit mode or something?

Ascynd Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hm I don't really know how google docs works, if you can set it up so that just you and I can edit it that would be best. I'll send you my email.
