Crossposting from my Weasyl and Furaffinity accounts!
I finally got around to making my personal reference sheet this summer after some needed poking from friends~ <333

Nicknames: Simha, Sim, Baggy, Bullion, Butthead, Lion, Nerd, Buff Puff
Forms: Main | Anthropomorphic | Guardian
Age: 29 years old (May ??th)
Zodiac Sign: Taurus (Western), Hare (Chinese), Vrushabha (Hindu)
Species: Baila Sera (Bull Lion) / Yali (Simha-vyala)
Gender: Trans*Genderfluid (He/They)
Sexuality: Polyromantic, Pansexual
Marital Status: Married and Collared
Associations: Polytheist Pagan with focus toward Narasimha, Durga, and Kali; not limited to Hindu deities only. For more information, visit - thornmarred.tumblr.com
Origin: Padma Mandir (Adraya and Derja's "Son")

Physical Attributes
Hair: Simha's hair is exactly like my own, naturally wavy and very much "spiked" up. Depending on the humidity the hair will frizz or loosen, very seldom is it straightened. Only the hair on his head, chest, and tail are present, his entire body otherwise is hairless.
Eyes: Eyes are generally yellow/orange, but do change from blue to neon green depending on mood, situation, etc.
Build: Simha is big and muscular, but its not terribly obvious because he's baggy. He's not quite as wrinkled as a Sharpei dog, but his skin has a similar baggy characteristic like the breed. His chest is deep set, with thick legs and a wide neck to accommodate his bullish nature and the set of horns he carries.
Tattoos: On the left shoulder only is the alchemical symbol for Annealing. On the fronts of both paws near the wrist are the Zodiac symbols for Taurus (my birth sign).
Scars: Front legs are littered with scars, stomach area has five distinct, but small, scars from laparoscopic surgeries.
Piercings: Both ears are pierced with two holes and a septum piercing with ball closure in the nose.


Tidbits & Other Information:
- Simha is the adopted son of Derja the Centicore and Adraya the Yali, both of whom have been in the forefront of a lot of self discovery and spirituality for me for years. Because of this, he is a Guardian of sorts and is sworn to protect.
- He's hairless! Save for his head, tail, and chest - Simha is naked and devoid of all fuzz. Not even a little bit.
- He also does not have a true mane. The dark hair on his head is more of a ridge or crest than an actual mane. Said hair is still very soft and not wiry or kinky. *loves my hair*
- Simha is Me as both an individual and as a multiple system. He's not just a sona or character and holds an incredible amount of importance and meaning.
- Despite being a giant lion thing, he's pretty terrible at being majestic and doesn't take himself seriously 95% of the time.
- His symbolic flowers are the Lotus, Agrimony, Foxglove (not pictured), and Peony (not pictured).
- All of his jewelry pictured is my actual jewelry I wear on a near daily basis. The particular ones pictured are some of the most important pieces to me.
- Simha's horns have two positions. The position pictured is most common for him to be seen with. The second position his horns sit over the ears and turn upward toward the end of the muzzle.
- His horns are actually based on the unique horns of the English Longhorn Cattle.
- The names of his colors are based on names from the Mad Max movies. (Bartertown Brown, Guzzoline Green, etc.)
- Kpop is Life.
- He has a poor sense of vision when it comes to reading print, but can see most other things well enough.
- He carries two dolls with him (not pictured). The first being Atrox the Saber Lion made by Thornwolf and the second is the zooKeeper, made by myself.
- But Kpop tho. His favorite group is SHINee and he/I will fight you about it.
