Achylos Ref by Scourgeseer Achylos Ref by Scourgeseer
(Edit 8/26/17: New lineart and backstory)
that guy in the Speak To Me deviation

Name: Achylos (genus of the black jellyfish)
Gender: Male
Age: 22 (25 in scavenger years)
Tribe: AbyssWing
Sexuality: Heterosexual
Family: Queen Lampris (mother) King Mollusca (father) Daggertooth (hatch brother) A whole bunch of other siblings and cousins (relatives) Cichlid (mate) Siren (daughter) Leviathan II (daughter) Grouper II (son)

Achylos was the fourth dragonet of Mollusca and Lampris, his brother Daggertooth hatching a few hours after him. He was adored by his parents and servants for being incredibly handsome, which raised his ego tremendously and led the young dragonet to believe he was the most important dragon in the kingdom. He was a cocky asshole for most of his teenage life, especially after he hit maturity, and basked in the adoration of young females and some males all across the tribe. He enjoyed going to balls just to make an appearance before leaving, sometimes with a fan clinging to his leg shrieking about wanting to be with him forever. Everything was going just swell until his mother introduced him to Batfish, his soon-to-be wife. Batfish was pretty dreadful, and was about as attached to him as every other female in the tribe. That night, he asked himself: do I really want to be like this my entire life? Living in the palace with this leech of a fiancée using me to ascend to the throne and fathering her dragonets. If she didn't kill them to prevent heirs from getting in her way. He had a mental breakdown and freaked out because his entire life was doomed, exaggerated or not. So he left the palace and swam to the surface because he needed to calm down and take a break. He looked up at the moons and stars in amazement; he had never seen anything like them before. However, he had drifted into Turnfin territory, and when he sank below the surface, he was greeted by the jagged fangs of a hungry pack of them.

Scared out of his mind, Achylos swam as fast as he could away from the Turnfins, travelling north into the Kingdom of the Sea. They eventually gave up, but Achylos was exhausted and hopelessly lost, plus a large chunk had been torn out of his tail fin and the blood was attracting more predators. To make matters even worse, a storm had brewed and the prince was thrown about by the tossing waves and howling winds. He passed out and the current dragged him towards a nearby island, where the beach had flooded because of the storm. He came to and crawled into a tidepool before passing out again. By the time he woke up, it was morning and he was trapped in the tidepool. The sun was too bright and he was too sore to move back into the sea, so he waited helplessly for death to come as he was baked alive. However, a group of SeaWing dragonets were scouting the debris ridden beach for fish, when they came across him. To them, he looked like a giant deep sea fish that moaned when they drew close to it. They ran back home and told their parents, who told some guards, who told the research facility. Achylos was dragged out of the tidepool, hissing and shrieking, before being tied up in a net and flown to the fortress where he was put in a giant tank that saved his life but also imprisoned him. And then Look Above happened.
