PostSubject: Fat-bottomed dragon   Sun May 30, 2010 8:08 pm

Trying to work out all the aspects of a new character that's been buzzing around in my head for a month or two.

Alt Name: Sunnie D.

A brief description of your character: A heavy and very big young dragoness (or perhaps winged wyrmme?). Utterly naive and girlish, the only things she's really good for are etiquette and embroidery. Now that she's stuck in Skuldhellir, she doesn't much know what to do with herself.

Why/How is your character in Skuldhellir: Her adoptive father, a rich merchant, had no luck trying to find a husband for Sunnie due to her sheer size. Losing hope, he sent her to Baertheim with a footman and some money as a last-ditch attempt to let her find a man. Dwarves would surely enjoy a larger lady, right? But Sunnie wound up on a ship to Skuldhellir instead...

Strengths:
---Natural:
- Size. Being huge has some advantages. When she has a mind to, she can be rather intimidating. She also weighs almost 900 pounds, so...
- Sharp claws. Though she dares not use them lest one chip, her perfectly-filed claws can break skin.
- Fire breath... sort of. Sunnie doesn't know she has this ability, and would be terrified to try, but she does have the ability to breathe fire.
- Knack for languages. Though Sunnie currently only speaks common, she knows scraps of Frrench and Anglish, and can pick up other languages rather quickly.
- Sweet. Though she's not everyone's cup of tea, and she is a bit spoiled, she tends to get along well with everyone she meets.

---Learned:
- Money. The girl isn't loaded, but her daddy is, and has some reputation as well. She has several complete outfits and some jewelry and makeup.
- Embroidery, etiquette... and other such ladylike things. (Things like cooking and cleaning are, of course, below her.)
- Surprisingly light-footed. One would expect her to step heavily and be very clumsy, but she manages her bulk very well. She's even a little bit graceful.
- Henri. He is a sheepdog who serves Sunnie as a quiet footman. Definitely not a bodyguard or anything--he just makes sure she's comfy and such. (His application is below.)

---Supernatural:
- Being a dragon, her scales have magical properties. This doesn't do much for her other than a very, very, very minor spell resistance.
- Dragonfear aura. Sunnie doesn't know she even has this ability, and it's very muted. When she gets particularly emotional, she exudes a mild aura of intimidation. Coupled with her size...

Weaknesses:
- Naive. And that's an understatement. The girl has no way the world works.
- Bad with money. Being privileged, she thinks money just grows on trees, and can throw it around on a whim.
- Spoiled. She's used to getting what she wants from her father, and expects the same from everyone else.
- Vain. Also an understatement. She frets with her clothes and makeup constantly, and if a single scale is out of place, she drops everything until she's preened again. She refuses to be seen before she's ready, and can spend hours every morning preparing herself. If she's caught in the rain or pushed over in the mud, she freaks out, crying and whining about it all over the place.
- No combat ability. In fact, the thought of picking up a weapon is completely abhorrent to her. If her life were threatened she'd likely just cry and plead rather than raise a fist.
- Magic scales. Her scales are useful in many spells, so wizards and such want to get a hold of them.
- Flighty. She has little common sense and she's very silly and unrealistic. She expects a handsome knight to come and sweep her off her feet someday.
- Hugeness. She's a nine-foot-tall dragon with a tail as thick as her waist--which is plenty large. She's not ungraceful, but her size makes things very difficult at times.



I want her to have some more strengths. I also ran out of time on this app, so I'm posting it here to finish later. 8)

[edit] adding, tweaking, etc etc

OH YES! The first picture in my head is Horobos riding around on her with a lance. xD Anyway, this is the sort of character that has a nice potential in a place like Skuldhellir. And Zaki will have someone her size to talk to about how hard it is being nine foot tall. Do like.
