Boreal Force - Rangifer Profile

Description

Here's the 16th profile in my original characters encyclopedia project. This one features the third of the five protagonists in my Boreal Force team.

Since all of the members of Boreal Force wear colour coded costumes, I've given 
Rangifer the signature colour of yellow. She's also got the caribou totem attached to her belt. I'm not totally happy with how the totem turned out, but I do think the colour scheme of her uniform is the strongest of the three thus far. In contrast to Canis and Ursus, I actually had a difficult time trying to think up a backstory for Rangifer. There's an element of tragedy to it like the others, which seems to be the linking factor. I am weary of throwing such strong hardships into all their backgrounds though out of fear that it may seem cliche. 

Rangifer is a bit of an exception to what I've been doing with this team. I had posted a poll asking you all to rank iconic Canadian animals and I hadn't included the caribou (a massive oversight on my part since it's on our frikkin' quarter). I did, however, include the moose and it pulled in third place. Since the moose and caribou are so similar, it stood to reason that I could simply switch them. Regardless, I want to give a shout out to those of you who voted and contributed to the selection. Specifically, I'd like to thank GDupons, Godzilla713, bjv016, Jose-Ramiro, kingziggy, Steelpoodle, Gold-Reaper, m4gichat, SargimusPrime, Jovan2013, DanFalcon, K-Jounin, Biruka, Thoth23 and ParisNJones

As always, I love hearing from you all so please feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments section. If you all would like to see more of these profiles, please let me know.

Enjoy! :)

Hmm, yellow member of the team that is the heart but needs thicker sick. Balances out I think.

Though I swear she reminds me of Vixen in places mainly due to her parents and upbringing - the whole activism aspect of Vixen's character is probably what is causing my deja vu.

Still, there's an obvious character development for her - along with learning that it's okay to take time for herself - and her role on the team is needed given the previous two.

Plus, her being vegan makes sense seeing how she has a Caribou totem.

All and all, quality is consistent.
