Jo-Jo The Black Cat by Jeremy-Burner Jo-Jo The Black Cat by Jeremy-Burner
This is one of my favorite D&D Characters. His role play is so much fun. XD
::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
Class: Monk

Alignment: lawful Good (with some chaotic tendencies) 

Personality: (Try to imagine, if you can, Sokka from the last air bender as a, ninja cat person, cursed with bad luck :3)

Backstory: Jinx is a word I don't particularly like, though unfortunately, it is what I am. Abandoned as a cub I was lovingly taken in and raised by the monks at the monastery in the Southern Zakaran mountains. Being now of age I have since ventured forth into the world in on a pilgrimage of self discovery. I did so with the hopes of helping those less fortunate even then me, mainly traveling as a hired hand and body guard for caravans and rich merchants. Who knows, I may even find a way to lift my cures. For the last year, sadly I have learned that the world is far less forgiving of my nature then the monks at the monastery were and I have begun to build a bit of an exaggerated reputation for myself. They now Call me The Black Cat, but I can tell you their are things far worse then letting me cross your path.

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: (Journal) ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Entry 1: The Journal master Den gave me a year ago was unfortunately destroyed by rain two months ago, and the second journal was stolen twice recovered then final destroyed also when my campfire got out of control three nights ago. Hopefully I can keep this new journal for longer than a week. Or at least long enough for me to make some money to buy a new journal. and maybe a backup journal. As often as I lose stuff, Its a miracle I haven't lost Den's Quarterstaff, maybe its lucky or something. I hope that luck holds out. Running out of food again, a weed rat managed to get into my bag again last night and ate all my little cakes. Fortunately he didn't eat the fruit though I think that's because it was starting to smell a little, I'm sure its still fine. As for my water skin...
...it is gone, and that is all anyone ever need know about that. my goodness I really don't like fairies.
I cant really remember the last time I had something to drink that didn't have something swimming in it. Perhaps ill meet a friendly traveler on the road tomorrow with some extra food. or dare I hope, some proper ale. good night Journal, better luck in the morning.

Entry 2: Hello Journal, Today was a very interesting day. No stranger than usual I suppose, but still. Early this morning a bear wondered into my camp and I had to ditch the last of my food and my new walking cloak to get away. Also, seeing as it was still dark, I kind of ended up getting lost. Even after sun rise, till late in the afternoon I couldn't find any sight or sign of the main road. I don't think I have ever been so hungry in my life. Still, as my luck would have it I didn't stay lost forever. Early evening I stumbled across some adventurers cooking a really big pig. They even shared some. Now I know what your thinking, Some good luck for a change. I thought so too at first. Not only was the pork not poisoned but it was actually quite delicious. Also my new companions did not attempt to mug and or drown me like that last group I settled down with. Sadly my good fortune stopped there. I really have to say that, though my curse has landed me in some strange adventures in the past, dragons are a first for me. The first thing we noticed was the smoke rising to the north. The dragon had apparently attacked a town not too far from where we were eating and, naturally, we being such a motley group of good Samaritans, just had to rush in and get involved. To summarized the chaos of the whole adventure, we were ambushed once, fought no less than thirty Kobolds, I interrogated a few of them under the threat of tickling, and lastly I learned that paladins were actually very arrow dynamic. Honestly, the strangest my day really had to offer was in my new companions. There was Cora, the flighty but friendly bright beak, Garrett, the grouchy lizard Lord, Dr. Gerark, the blue faced doubled horned unicorn man, and Durain Dunklebeard, who just so happens to be, probably the most charismatic troll I have ever laid eyes on. The Catch phrases he repeats like a mantra are particularly infectious. I will have to treat the brave warrior to a round of ale the first chance I get. And perhaps challenge him to a friendly brawl after we are properly inebriated.
One last thing. Before settling down to write, something Dr. Gerark said stuck out to me. He asked why, when I fight, do I refrain from using lethal force. I of course told him about my oath and how the monks taught me to kill only when given no other choice. Master Den called it the golden rule. "Always treat others as you would want to be treated." As such If I was ever defeated by a motley group of adventures, naturally I would be ever so grateful if they spared my life. That being said Gerark's question suggested to me that the strange people of this land do not posses such a golden rule. If so then I will have to be extra careful. For if mercy is rare in this country then I will have to be extra generous with my own. Well that is it for today. I hope. Our journey is clearly far form over and it looks to be quite the fun one. Good night Journal, better luck in the morning.

I can't help but think of Capper the Cat from My Little Pony: The Movie (2017) when I see this design. The artwork looks amazing!

Hahaha, nice character!! I can imagine D&D sessions being laugh out loud funny with him. ...or terrifying! (Cursed with bad luck, huh?) XD

Jo-Jo reminds me of the Khajiit race from The Elder Scrolls series.~

Similar Race. Just a fun quirk of his character but his bad luck has a huge upside.:aww: If he can manage to land a physical hit on his target, despite his cures, they get stuck with his bad luck for the next five minutes. causing so much laughs XD

Yeah, it certainly balances out his curse. I mean failing all your rolls can cause some serious problems in a party. but when you can transfer all those bad rolls to your enemy, XD suddenly that dragon is in so much trouble.

Man... That sounds too fun. XD I'd love to get into D&D more, I just need to find other players in town and show me how to 'properly' play it, cause goodness knows my current characters are badly created, hahaha.

This looks great! The dynamic pose has so much movement and I love the reactions of his victims while he's just smiling away in the sunshine stepping on their faces XD

That's Jo-jo for you. Kicking your butt and cracking jokes, trying to make you laugh while he shows you who's boss.

Is Josh ok after toonkriticy2k?

He will be. Josh doesn't go half way with people he befriends. He lets them get pretty close to his heart. Sadly that just makes it harder when they break it.
