Kite Reference by Aspenfrost Kite Reference by Aspenfrost
EDIT// Pulled out of the competition. D: not enough time.

CHIP
-----------------------
Gender: Male
Age: 1 year
Cardinal
Personality: outgoing, curious, trouble maker, like a kid. Chip loves to fly around and get himslf into trouble, he loves making friends.
History: Left the nest looking for adventure. He met Kite and became fast friends.

KITE
----------------------------
Age: 4 years

Gender: female

Breed(s): Australian Shepard and Lab

Siblings: Conall (con-all)

Mother: Aben (A-ben)

Father: Delwyn (Del-win)

Abilities:
Kite is able to absorb energy from living things. She cannot absorb energy from animals unless they are severely injured or tired/ on the verge of death. She needs direct contact with the source in order absorb it's energy. The energy is expelled from her body in the form of visible light. The blast it creates is powerful enough to knock most competitors off of their feet. It does, however, not burn/cut/or injure in any other way besides a strong 'push'. Compare it to a sudden and very strong blast of wind. The energy also lightly excels her healing ability. In 24 hours she can heal most small wounds and scratches.

Limitations to this Ability:
While absorbing energy she goes into a period of meditation that takes anywhere from around 2 seconds to 2 hours, depending on how much is being absorbed.
Another limitation is the amount of energy she is able to control. She can absorb lots of power and contain it (for things like healing wounds) but can't expel large amount in little amounts of time. It is the act of transferring the absorbed power out of her body that fatigues her. After using a good amount of power ( four or five small blasts of energy) she starts to become tired and disoriented. She can be killed by using too much in too little of time.

Streanghts: She is fast and light on her feet. She also has a high pain tolerance.

Weaknesses: She has and old injury to her ankle that can easily be aggravated by a blow. She also has a wound on her flank that is a weak-spot and can also be aggravated by a hard blow. Asthma that is triggered by large amounts of running and sometimes using too much of her power.

Personality: She is reserved and shy, but lovable and friendly to thoes she knows. She is a good stratigest and quick minded, but also a has a bit of ADD. She is sneeky and cunning and very much of a tom-boy. Very caring and acts like a leader figure to thoes around her.

Likes: Her friends, open spaces, quiet, and nature.

Dislikes: Crowds, loud noises, humans, bullies.

Well, I wont give you mine, but you could search in the internet for kennels. The only important thing is that they've got papers (from ASCA) because Aussies get lots of illness and genetic problems, without a really good knowledge of genetic, puppys etc.

Or if you cant get a real dog, you could look for an Aussie adoptable here on devi :D

The changes are actually very helpful. Just roll wiv it.

Alright, here's our review.

Your character has five strengths (fast and light on her feet are the same and only count as one, and being a good swimmer isn't really an applicable strength since swimming in the irradiated river would be a really bad idea.) However, only two of her weaknesses really apply. You say she's small in size, but really she isn't. Keep in mind all of our characters are dogs. The breeds that you used for her aren't really small, they're actually in the middle of the size range. When you compare to dogs like Tangerine and Haystack, who are Corgis, or Untoten, who is a Brussels Griffon, she's actually kind of big. Also, the scar on her flank isn't a weakness unless you specify that it pains or limits her in some way. Lots of people have scars all over their body that don't hurt them in any way.

She'll need several more weaknesses to compensate for all those strengths, as well as her ability. Ideally we like for there to be an even number of strengths and weaknesses.

Speaking of her ability, it is a bit hard to understand. She can harness energy from other living beings? Does this mean anything living, like grass or trees, or only other actual animals? Can she potentially kill someone by draining their energy? What do you mean "harness it in the form of visible light"? Is it only light, or does it act like a laser and burn things? And how does this power let her heal herself? It's very confusing and needs heavy elaboration so your opponents can understand exactly how it works.

Finally, you mention Conall several times in the reference. Is he a side character or does he just appear in the audition? If he is a recurring character he'll need a reference as well so your opponents can draw him accurately.

The only things left are her weaknesses. The half-blind bit is problematic for two reasons; first how can someone be "half" blind? You're either blind, or not. If she has poor vision in that eye it should say poor vision, not "half-blind". Also... you might want to reconsider it simply because that's becoming the single most commonly applied weakness. A good quarter of our characters are blind in one eye. You can still use it if you really want to however, it just needs rephrasing.

Also, she still needs one additional weakness to balance out that ability, since it counts towards the strengths.

ok i can do that :la:. and ill get some new weaknesses, im just... running out of ideas. but it means i wont be able to join the scribble tonight right? i should probably be working on other things anyway...haha, like the audition ;D

There's plenty of time for the audition, it doesn't end until August 31st. If you check our FAQ we have a list of viable weaknesses;


"Impaired hearing, anemic, slow, physical weakness, a limp, practical weak spots, easily dislocated bones, fragile bone structure, poor balance, poor maneuverability, frequent fainting/headaches/vomiting, heart condition, epileptic, narcoleptic, previous injuries, arthritis, blood condition, and abnormally low or high body temperature. Obviously there are a lot more than just these, but hopefully this list can give you some ideas. "

i know! i just saw that a minute ago. Thank you! i think ill do something like asthma.... then take away one of the strengths to balance it out? so i have two stranghts, an ability, and three weaknesses?does that work?
Reply
:iconshinkoryu14:
Shinkoryu14 Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
That would be fine. If asthma is going to be your added weakness, the strength you remove should probably be endurance since those two contradict each other.

Lol yeah... not sure why I added thoes... I guess the lab part of her makes her a good swimmer, but I never actually though of where she ever swam at XD. I'm so weird. I'll fix the into in the comments and fix the ref later when I get home. And yes the scar .which I forgot to mention XP does cause her pain if it gets hit hard enough. Its a weak point ;D. Ill make sure they all even out. i have to say... the weeknesses and stuff were kind of rushed. sorry. ;^-^

Yes she can draw energy from ANY living being, but its hard to pull it from healthy animals and stuff. She usually takes it from the ground or plants. The only way she could possible kill somthing like a dog with her power (which she wouldnt because of moral reasons) is if they were pretty much dead to begin with. When she uses it.. it more like.... (well this is how i pictured it) a blast of power. it dosnt burn, or cut or anything, just a blast like being hit with a large gust of wind that can potential throw you off your feet. She uses it alot to propell her self into the air. And fo the healing, it dosnt like 'heal before your eyes' i should have said it just slightly excellerated. so in a couple of days scratches and stuff would be gone without trace. The power she absords has some adverse affects on her body. the dealing ability is the biggest.

Oh, Conell? At the top of the ref and in the history it states he is her big brother. He is just a family memeber she she stayed with before she left. he is the reason she enters the tournament.

Um... well i hope that makes any scence. and if it does ill add the to the ref... ok?
