Eclypse ref (OLD AF!!!) by Dragimal Eclypse ref (OLD AF!!!) by Dragimal

Name- Eclypse
Gender- Female
Species- Crested Western Dragon [link]
Belief system- Same as her species; no deviations.
Self- Eclypse is a healer at heart; one who creates in order to fix others and their injuries, and being that she is a Crested, this healing centers around emotions. She uses her innate Self talent with emotions to calm others, and work out their mental problems (and I mean problems as in depression, anger, etc.). This calming is achieved through either (or both) a temporary "dulling" of the mind and senses, or a funneling negative emotions through herself, and down/out to the ground, and sharing her own positive emotions. Since she is a healer, she also has a 'side-effect' talent with general life force, and is known for having a physical/spiritual "healing touch", as her energy helps her own wounds/ailments heal faster (by about 15-20%), and the wounds of those that spend a lot of time in proximity of her energy (by about 10-15%). Her energy also tends to give an extra boost to the growth of flora (not very noticeable in short time periods, but in high-traffic areas such as frequent sleeping places, there is a particularly large spike in plant growth). She tends to be attracted to the dead/dying not only because of possible negative emotions that she feels pulled toward in order to alleviate, but also to diminishing life energy, and the subconscious desire to make easier the movement of others' Self from this plane to the next (whatever the next may be~~).
Height (from shoulder)- 5'
Height (from head)- 10'
Length (head to tail)- 57'
Wingspan- 31'
Food- Berries are a close favorite to roots in her diet, but she also likes grass and leaves.
Habitat- loves thick, temperate rainforests with lots of rain and fog (very-much enjoys rolling around in the rain...).
Battle- Very-much a pacifist, so she will usually try to resolve fights peacefully before any "fur flies", and would likely put her species' calming abilities to good use. If she can't resolve a fight with diplomacy, she will usually run away. If she can't run (this would probably mean that someone else was involved that she felt obligated to help out), she likes to plan ahead before any fighting. Will generally perform more defensive maneuvers rather than offensive (she will protect, but generally not outright attack). Quick wit, flexibility, stealth, and evasive maneuvers are her best allies with her tail, paws, and wings. While she does have blunt claws, she is more inclined to use the palm of her paw to swipe in order to avoid serious injury (this can still pack a powerful knock-out if needed). Her claws aren't the most effective anyways, since they're more geared for climbing. Usually more inclined to heal injuries than anything.
Speed- land~ 45-50 mph; air~ 60-65 mph; water~ 63-70 mph
Strength- 320 lbs
Senses- all senses are normal for the species; no abnormalities
Personality- Usually soft-spoken, patient, and doesn't stand-out a whole lot (so she often fades into the background... not that she'd complain about it). Introvert in every sense of the word (doesn't interact with others unless there is a reason), though is still friendly when confronted. Tries to avoid conflict, which can be helpful, as she can easily stay neutral when helping others with their conflicts. Being a very open-minded individual also helps with this. Has very high empathy towards others from her species' abilities. Enjoys solitude over being with others, and is much more at home in her own thoughts. She is very intelligent (particularly knowledgeable in healing practices, and nature/other animals in general) and has almost a photographic memory. Eclypse has a never-ending curiosity, thirst for knowledge, and love of exploring, so she would gladly explore any place (especially in nature). Though, when it comes down to it, Eclypse is very lax/easy-going, and is often found quietly curled up in her own thoughts, rather than doing anything athletic (more likely to be found reading, drawing, or even sewing). Though she can be very analytical when needed, she is more abstract and imaginative in her thinking. She tends to get lost in her own thoughts a lot (leading her to deep introspection, and many philosophic outlooks on life), and just stares off into space when nothing is happening, but can still be very perceptive and focused when needed, and is known for her skilled observations. She enjoys a lot of different academic topics, such as history, mythology, literature, biology, philosophy, astrology, etc. While she doesn't often show it, she is actually very passionate about the things she loves, and can talk about them for hours on end (though, again, it is a very rare occurrence, as she is more inclined to listen than talk in most situations). While her mind is quick, her actions tend to be slow, and she enjoys living life at a leisurely pace. Very meticulous, thoughtful, and thorough in her thoughts and actions.
Weaknesses- Since she calms others by funneling emotions through herself, she can accidentally gather negative emotions, leading to some shorts times of anger or sadness. If these emotions gather in larger amounts, she could /potentially/ become angry or depressed to the extreme, so she must take caution. Has the urge to heal almost to a fault, and her "attraction" to negative emotions can lead her to being taken advantage of for others' gain. A downside of being neutral is that she has a hard time making decisions; she is always second-guessing herself and is very self-critical. Avoiding conflict can also be a disadvantage, as she takes this to a detrimental extreme in that she is almost completely unwilling to take risks or advocate for herself, even if it would likely turn out beneficial. While she does tend to be friendly, she frequently has moments where her shyness will grow into a crippling social anxiety, and she will go to great lengths to avoid meeting others or interacting. She has the kind of personality where she doesn't really lie, so she expects others to be similarly truthful, which leads her to be a bit... naive, at first. She'll just take most things that people say as being true. This generally doesn't lead her into many bad/dangerous situations, as her critical thinking and anti-risk personality kick in some point soon after something deceptive is said, but it has gotten her some teasing and embarrassing situations. Being so meticulous can make her very slow in her actions, as she focuses so much on doing something perfectly, and forgets that it may be something that needs to get done quickly. Gets extremely agitated in cities and areas with a lot of humans, or just loud/high-energy places in general. Not very strong compared to other dragons, and even others of her species. Not the fastest either. Not very athletic/competitive in general, actually. She loathes being the center of attention, and becomes extremely self-conscious if she ever speaks in front of crowds.
Other- Animal shape-shifter (This isn't a power available to her species or any other dragon species that are found in "The Misunderstood", but since she isn't gonna be in the story, and she's my fursona, she gets special privileges,,, =w=)
