I hope everything's okay! I've been trying to get this up for so long so I rushed some things. I might minor tweak details later. If anything needs to be changed let me know!!

Update 9-26-17: Changed height difference of him and his cousin

Character ref for an oct!

Name: 
Trr Acles 
Alias/Nickname: T, fish breath (his cousin calls him that)
Species: Ambivatiives 
Country/Planet/Home: Tavetiles 

Age: 200 (equivalent to 20 in human years) 
Height/Weight: 4'7 in (standing on back legs roughly 8'2 in) 428 pounds (underweight for his species due to lack of proper food)
Gender: Male

Reason for entering: A large increase in natural disasters have left almost all of the planet's crops and livestock devastated, Trr hopes to help replace/replenish them by bringing back new seeds/plants. 

Strengths: ~Very agile underwater.

~He has tough skin that is both harder to cut but also protects them from the suns' rays.

~Has spikes and claws that make him both fit for offensive and defensive moves.

Abilities: ~Can breathe/survive both on land and water,
though prefers and more so thrives in aquatic environments.

~Has multiple features that adjust when moving from land to water or vice versa,
third eyelid that protects his eyes underwater, gills+lungs, and a palatal valve
(flap under tongue that activates when underwater that prevents water from entering the throat). 

~Hidden retractable claws within his suckers. They can latch on to things pretty well and helps him climb. Sharp and lethal as well.

Weaknesses: ~High sensitivity to cold temperatures.
Their planet's climate is tropical and never reaches freezing/below
freezing temperatures making Trr's species to be dysfunctional in said conditions.

~Suffers from insomnia quite frequently. This results in him having slow reaction times to thing and easily surprised/startled.  
~It also causes him to be easily frustrated and slow at mentally demanding activities such as puzzles

~He is very slow when adjusting from being underwater to being on land
 it is very disorienting and he takes a while to fully transition, leaving him very vulnerable at this time.

~Has Phonophobia (The fear of or aversion to loud sounds) He usually wears small ear plugs to combat this but loud noises make him super scared and panicky. It mostly developed from dealing with all the disasters on his planet and the tremendous noise and chaos that occurs frequently due to the storms.

Personality: Easy going extrovert. However a bit sensitive, he tends to bottle up his emotions or disregard them to instead help others, but when he eventually lets it out he can breakdown pretty badly. While he also tries to be a hard worker he gets confused easily. Formal/polite mannerism to others.

History:  The increase in natural disasters started occurring when he was pretty young. Almost all the adults in his family set out to try and start repairs and helping those hurt by the damage. Being an only child he was left for the time being with his oldest cousin (aka Yrr as seen in the bottom left corner) She was very reluctant and annoyed at having to look after him. As they grew Trr grew super close to her, and while Yrr still puts on the facade of not liking him she does really care for him! They've both been through a lot and have became nomads as it's hard to stay in one place on their planet without being effected by the weather. She's taught him a lot about other cultures too on other planets from her parent's stories of travel, because of this he's become very interested in experiencing them and meeting new people. The disasters have gradually calmed though still strike currently. Food supplies have been devastated and many are struggling to get by. When the tournament was announced Trr became super interested and was determined to enter to help aid his family and planet. He was also really into the idea of traveling (even though he gets motion sick) as he's never left his planet before. She'll also be accompanying him as a spectator during the tournament. 

Likes: Sweets, trying new foods( he's the complete opposite of a picky eater) lounging, meeting new people, fishing, rain

Dislikes:~Traveling by flight, warm drinks, bugs

Other: ~Always slippery, it makes him a little clumsy on land at times but it's what keeps him cool and hydrated 

~ Can at times sleep both standing up and with his eyes open 

~His colors get more saturated when warm and dull when cold
