2 Deviations in the span of one month? WHAT IS THIS NONSENSE?
For :iconbattleoflimbah:
I'm not going to lie, the faun in Pan's Labyrinth played a major part in my inspiration for Faun. I'd imagine that would be self evident.


Each character I make keeps going up on the stupid scale.

Basic Info and Random Facts

Name: Faun

-Very boyish in appearance
-Chest and Torso region is covered with a soft exterior of leaves and decayed organic plant matter
-Under the compost exterior is a bark-like "shell" that encases his body. As a means of protection, the wood combined with the toxins and minerals in the environment to strengthen the material, making it much more durable. Takes a lot of power or pressure to break it.
-Only the fur on his Lower legs, upper arms, and tail is unprotected by plant material.
-The fur on the inside of his upper arms is white.
-Leaves will sometimes sprout from his body at random, usually around the upper torso and chest.

Fighting Style:
His most reliable weapons are his legs/hooves. Because of this, his style of fighting consists mostly of fast paced and powerful kicks, jumps, ect. Though fast on his feet, he can be extremely clumsy if not fully concentrated on what he's doing. The armor that trails off from his elbows and shoulders is extremely sharp; though he'd be a bit reluctant to use them as weapons in a fight in fear that they might break. Because he usually tries to avoid fighting, he isn't very coordinated. Short range fighter.

Personality, Background and Misc.

Not actually the famed mythical creature of course, he titles himself as a Faun to create an otherworldly or enchanted reputation for himself; though the inhabitants of Limbah who aren't stupidly gullible are more than aware that he is nothing of the sort. Merely a chance compilation of driftwood, compost, and a "who-in-the-hell-knows-how" goat, he has almost completely convinced himself that his existence is a work of magic and not that of a biological accident.

He didn't conjure this "mythological creature" idea all by himself, of course. When he was little, he had come across a mangy book on fairy tales that a child had lost down a sewer grate. When he stumbled upon the image of the goat like creatures who played in and protected the forest, his reaction was instantaneous. From henceforth he became a self-proclaimed Faun(thus bestowing his name), believing that he was simply born in the wrong place at the wrong time under mysterious circumstances. Ever since that point in time, he has also always been on the look out for books; always eager to read and gain more knowledge.

Faun was "born" and raised in the sewers. Being at a very young age and without parental figures to guide him, he sought out shelter and food whenever and wherever he could to survive. As he grew up, he gained a reputation amongst other inhabitants who were aware of his existence to being "the annoying weird little bundle of optimism." Faun, though annoying and gullible, is very friendly and sweet to everyone he meets. (At least he tries to-- even if he initially doesn't like them) Optimistic and outgoing, he tries to makes friends with all of the "magical creatures" he encounters, trying to persuade them to acknowledge their true identity.

He has a strong desire to fall in love. He still hasn't figured out quite how that he really really really really wants to. Maybe it's all those fairy tales he's been reading.

It's not hard to imagine why Faun believes that the world is filled with mythological beings, considering he lives amongst walking talking mutated animals and organic matter. He's constantly trying to convince others that they're a fairy or a mermaid, a homunculus or a brownie (the creature, not the desert), or something of the sort. Innocent at heart, he simply wishes to see his world in a not-so-dark-and-bleak perspective. some inhabitants that come across him find his delusions cute; others aren't so fond his little proclamations.

Though delusional and in self denial, he is in no means naive to the way the world works. (in civil and social terms) He's aware that he can't show his face to humans on the surface, no matter how much he wants to. Humans simply can't accept what the don't understand; and after all, Fauns don't really have a place in cities. (other than parks, but who wants to be a guardian over just a few acres of trees and man-made ponds?) He's also aware of his social status in Limbah, and is careful to stay within the rules and regulations set by Kroon. Despite this, he will sometimes sneak out at night into the city park, pretending that he's a guardian of a huge enchanted forest. (He especially loves the Summer when there's fireflies about) But he can only do this on rare occasion, and he has to be extremely careful about it so as not to be caught by either a human or mutant.

It's not easy to anger him. Being very calm and passive when it comes to such situations, he likes to avoid confrontation unless absolutely necessary. It's not easy to bring him down or knock him off his happy perch. He's known to live in his own little world, letting insults and hardships roll off his back.

He longs for the day that the upper world can learn to accept mutants and other magical beings such as himself. He would love nothing more than for everyone to live side-by-side together, so that he may make the long journey into his long sought after "enchanted forest where he may join his fellow magical brethrenand maybe find his true love too." He'd do anything to have that happen.

Oh Faun you cute delusional little bastard.

I think Faun is one of my favourite characters I've seen being entered into Limbah so far. I love his design, and his personality so much, ahaha. He also has a very interesting backstory.

I hope you get into Limbah, Faun's a great character; good luck! c: ♥

So very strange, so very different o-o But, sometimes that's what you need...
Sandy-the-echidna Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2009
Different from what I normally do. XD Perhaps because I made him so spontaneously.

But still, he's pretty two dimensional as a character right now, and his personality isn't really anything new. I was talking to one of my friends about him, and he's pretty much a "fun character just for fun." Which is true. XD
AetherealBunny Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2009  Student General Artist
Sometimes it's the best way XD!

And eh, being somewhat simple and straight forward might be useful in some stories. Just don't make them too flat XD
Katevision Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2009

Sandy-the-echidna Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2009
