Digimon: Canichemon and co. by NicGiraffe Digimon: Canichemon and co. by NicGiraffe
Sure, huskies and wolves are great, but c'mon, where's the love for the poodle? This is Canichemon, and yep, he is a standard poodle. He features along with Cornicmon, Gefmon, and Nievemon in my 02 sequel fic. The two small are Cotomon (in the middle), and Chiotmon (on the far right), his lower forms. Canichemon speaks with a French accent, and is capable of walking bipedally or on all fours. I was thinking about making his coat either dusty gold, slate-gray, or light peach (with his ruff and pom-poms being a darker shade then his shorter fur). He is an atheletic digimon who loves the water, and has physical and psychic-based attacks.

Personality: Generally, a good-natured, extroverted, and brave digimon. While intelligent, he does tend to be naïve. Doesn’t pick fights, but if challenged or if his friends are endangered, then he will give it his all. He is very loyal to June (and by extension, her family and friends), and even likes to help the Motomiyas around their home by helping clean up.

Cotomon
Name Origin: “Coto” is derived from the French word "coton", meaning cotton.
Level: Baby I/Fresh.
Attribute: Data.
Type: Mammal.
Gender: Male.
Family: Nature Spirits.
Human Partner: June Motimoya.
Attacks: Coming soon.

Chiotmon
Name Origin: “Chiot” is a French word meaning puppy.
Level: In-Training/Baby II.
Attribute: Data.
Type: Mammal.
Gender: Male.
Family: Nature Spirits.
Human Partner: June Motimoya.
Attacks: Coming soon.

Canichemon
Name Origin: “Caniche” is the French word for poodle.
Level: Rookie/Child.
Attribute: Vaccine.
Type: Mammal.
Gender: Male.
Family: Nature Spirits.
Human Partner: June Motimoya.
Attacks: Caniche Coup (Poodle Punch) Charges his paws with psychic energy and then punches the enemy.
Espirit Marionette (Mind Marionette) Performs a series of hand gestures, which hypnotizes the enemy, who then mimics every move Canichemon makes.

Evolution line: Cotomon -> Chiotmon -> Canichemon
-> ??? -> Guerriermon -> Charlemon

He actually does have a Champion form -- I just haven't come up with a name for it yet (I'm not above taking suggestions for it or some of his attacks*hint hint*).

Hrm... You know I actually wonder if he wouldn't look better with his coat being a very dark shade of brown and his ruff and pompoms being dusty gold? You should go ahead and try a bunch of different color combinations and see what comes out best! *nodnod*

Hmm... Canichemon could look good in sepia brown and dusty gold. I think I will play around with his color scheme some more. Again, thanks for the idea. :)

Awesome. I remember us talking about these guys. It's nice to take a break from the In-Training forms having looking like just a head & facial features (other parts such as ears, tails, etc.). :)

Thanks. :) Yeah, I was getting tired of seeing In-Training digimon that were always heads with a few other features. I mean, they're cute, but I wonder if pple forgot that they can have other forms aside from the little heads or what.

No, but I know an artist named Gomis who has a lemur digimon: [link] I may (the key word is "may") do one in the future if I ever get any ideas for one.

And thanks. :)

*L* Yeah, I'm trying to make some poodle characters who fly in the face of the negative stereotypes about the breed. Maybe I could get a trend started (yeah right)... XD

And thanks!
