My Mentor
This is the first time I've told any cat how my mentor died.
No cat would ever believe me. Do I blame them? Well, no, not really. Any (true) story I tell would be written off as the overactive imagination of a scared kit. What cat would believe me, anyway? I told them Pebbleclaw slipped off the rocks at the sides of the creek when the wind got too rough and the waves too choppy. He was always too ambitious a hunter for his own good, after all.
Everyone believed me. They had no reason to doubt, after all the territory had been experiencing rising waters, and the current swept everything away. Blood included.
They gave me a new mentor and acted like it was no big deal, and I reluctantly finished up my training, but the memories would stay with me forever. The truth of what happened that day would never leave me unless it got out, which I guess is why I'm telling you all this.
Pebbleclaw was one of the Clan's senior warriors. He was athletic, ambitious, and well-liked. The other apprentic

Character Design Tutorial
[New section!] Over-mirroring aka sticking too much in patterns of the original series!

At first: No costume can save a badly made character. Your Average Joe/Jane character won't become any more interesting even if you make him/her to wear turquoise hair and odd-colored neon-color eyes. What makes character interesting is his/her INNER SIDE: his/her personality, history, skills, behavior pattern, odd traits, running gags, simply WHAT (S)HE IS. A rye bread doesn't become into a cream cake even if you put on it whipped cream and strawberries.
However, a good design may help the reader/viewer to notice, tell apart and remember the character more easily. That's why all Naruto characters are not sporting black hair and wearing those green tactical vests: if all character seemed almost similar, it would be pain for the reader to tell who of th

Unique Character Design Tips
In my opinion, these are the most important factors in any character design: color, concept, shape, simplicity, cohesiveness, repeatability, personality and uniqueness.
Color: Any design with colors all over the place creates too many places for the eye to look. Keep your color design very simple and zen. Looking at the colors shouldn't be jarring or confusing. This isn't to say only use one color, not at all, but try to make sure the ones you use are harmonious. Avoid mixing and matching different saturations of the same color or picking colors that clash with one another.
My rule of thumb: Stick to no more than three base colors and some value variations.
Concept: Your design should have inspiration, even if the inspiration is just your intended character's personality or an interesting object that represents them. Your character could be a bookworm, and that would impact her posture, her clothing, her hairstyle...pretty much everything about her! You can design

Out of Danganronpa OC ideas?
Here are a bunch of professions to start you off. They are categorized loosely, and some of these may belong in multiple categories.
Tip: Name your character using BehindTheName. It beats thinking of a random mess vaguely Japanese-sounding or just looking up common nouns on Wiktionary. BehindTheName can randomly name your characters, too.
