STRENGTHS

Natural

Strength. Being niner feeter tall comes with an above average strength. Given the life she leads, she's a bit stronger than average relative to her own size too.

Intimidating. Face full of scars, one eye missing and a generally grim looking appearance might let her convince people to do things they usually wouldn't do.

Nine feet tall. This gives her mass, and mass = power.

Learned

Hardened. Through a hectic and turbulent life her mind and body has adapted to abuse, leaving her a bit dulled to things others might find unbearable. (Such as death (not her own of course), pain, being treated and seeing others being treated horribly and the like.)

Socially cunning. The social is a game, and she knows the rules very well. What to say, how to say it and when it is a good time to say it.

Driven. She gets the job done. With a zealous mind she deals with any task at hand. For the right price.

Supernatural

Attuned to magic. Being an entity crafted through magic she can sense the energies used to form spells. Ironically she can't use magic at all.


WEAKNESSES

Lost one eye. Her right eye is missing, she can barely percieve depth and pretty much half of her field of view is gone.

Size. She's limited to where she can fit physically and she's as agile as a table.

Limping. Her right leg was hurt badly and even now, fully healed, it's a source of constant pain. In addition it affects her balance a bit aswell as her ability to utilize her strength properly.

Scary. One eye missing and a face full of scars, the limping walk and one of her once impressive horns has been broken clean off. While she can "convince" people with her looks it is most of the time just leading people to treating her like a low life criminal and as a result she's usually forced to spend time with low life criminals.

Dulled. She can handle pain, she barely cares how she's treated but it comes at a price. She's equally unable to fully appreciate the good things in life. Sugary goodness and rainbows and love and purple wizards doesn't mean much to her.

Skewed morals. It's not black and white to her anymore. It's more of a grey blur and as a result law enforcers are likely to object with some of the things she does.

Depressed. Behind the hardened walls of grim attitude and a scar riddled face hides the old snuggly fluffel huffel Ahja that likes to slack around by a fire and not worry about anything. The memories of her old and much nicer life sometimes gets the better of her. Depending on what kind of person prying into her mental state she might start crying or respond with relentless (verbal) rage, but in most cases the only company she will accept is that of...

Alcohol. It's now one of her greater friends and she consumes it daily. Usually it's in moderate amounts but during depressions she will drink a lot more.


* * * * *

Now then, I'm gonna attempt to quantify all this.

Strength - 4
Intimidating - 2
Size - 4
Hardened - 3
Socially skilled - 2
Driven - 2
Sensetive to magic - 1
Total: 19
-----------------------------------------------
One eye - 2
Limitations due to size - 1
Damaged leg - 3
Scary looking - 3
Dulled - 2
Skewed morals - 2
Depressed - 1
Semi-alcoholic - 1
Total: 15

IS THIS OKAY!? I DON'T EVEN...

I'm going to number this since I was yet again asked to, but please, other people feel free to try the system out on this and other characters that've already been scored, too!

STRENGTHS

1. Strength's pretty major in Skuldhellir. 4 sounds about right.
2. Being able to intimidate people is always a handy skill, but it's not powerful on its own; 2 seems appropriate.
3. Size is around a 2, since strength has already been tallied!
4. Being hardened in an environment like this is not an uncommon trait, but it is a useful one. 2.
5. Social skills would be another 2!
6. Driven would be about a 1.
7. Sensitivity to magic is another 1.

Total: 14

WEAKNESSES

1. Lack of an eye would be a 2.
2. Lack of agility is a 2.
3. Fail leg is a 3.
4. Scurriness is 3.
5. PURPLE WIZARDS DON'T MEAN MUCH TO YOU????/ D8< ....2.
6. Failmorals is a 2, for having her be more prone to potentially breaking the law.
7. Depression can be very major and affect everything a character does. I'd give this a 2, too.
8. Alcoholism isn't a big deal unless she gets really drunk really often. Since I'm taking it that she doesn't, 1!

Total: 17

Well-balanced! Thank you, Zaki. <:

I'll try! :>

STRENGTHS
- Strength: 4 is good.
- Intimidating: 2
- Nine feet tall: Some of this cost comes into the strength thing. I'd only say 2 or 3.
- Hardened: 2
- Socially cunning: I hope stuff like this comes in more in Skuldhellir. :3 2!
- Driven: 1
- Attuned to magic: 1

WEAKNESSES
- One eye: 2
- Size: 2 (there are a lot of tight spaces in Skuldhellir.)
- Limping: 2-3
- Scary: 1-2 (this is a pretty rugged place we're talking about)
- Dulled: 1
- Skewed morals: 1
- Depressed: 1
- Alcohol: 0-1

Strengths: 14
Weaknesses: 10-13

I'm down with that! I think I give everything lower numbers than everyone else. XD But that doesn't matter. :> You're good!

I have done some srs thinking and I am considering retconning Zaki, making her a human instead of a fox furre. After all, I'm not that much into furres in reality, I've only played them because my mind can't handle a human character represented by a furre avatar. But now there are human avatars so... yeah. Also, I seriously hate drawing furres, humans are so much easier.

I love Zaki as a furre, though! :C

Hrm... Yeah. I kinda like drawing my characters and I rarely draw Ahja because I am very llimited in my furre drawing skillzorz. And also, the concept of her as a human intrigues me a lot. Many of her features, such as then squiggly red lines covering her form along with the horns will look extra odd on a human, or so I think at least. But yeah, haven't decided yet...
I suspect my furre hating friend will try to convince me to make her human. xD

But we will then convince you otherwise! And we rock harder, so.
Then again, I tend to make a whole bunch of humans too XD They're just so awesome and squishy.
