PostSubject: Lost in Eukara (OOC)   Mon Jul 08, 2013 6:15 pm

Lost in Eukara

In another realm much different from the one inhabited by humans, a majestic tree grew in the center of a beautiful world known as Eukara. With roots that went to fathomless depths and a span too great to comprehend, the great tree was connected to every region in the land. It is even believed that this tree, home to a powerful spirit of nature, built the foundation of Eukara, and marked the realm’s center. Regardless of its origin, one thing was true, the spirit that inhabited the tree’s core held Eukara together, maintaining the balance that made the world so beautiful and filled with life. For ages, it kept the plant life from death, and under its watchful eye, the seas, lakes, and rivers remained pure. The air stayed clean, as the flora constantly cleaned it. All of the beasts that inhabited this world, both those found in the human realm also, and those that were magical, native to the realm, held the great tree with reverence.

Now, however, something terrible has occurred. An evil, malevolent force has appeared at the farthest edge of the tree’s reach, and it has slowly begun to gnaw at the spirit’s roots. As it does so, the land slowly starts to fall apart. Plants gradually begin to die, and the animals that lived there become enraged and aggressive, attacking anything that crosses their path, even their own kind. Only a select few of these animals did not immediately lose their sanity, but eventually, they, too, will start to succumb to the dark influence. Not long after the region grows corrupted by taint, the very landscape begins to change. The ground becomes coated in sickening black sludge, and strange black tendrils sprout from the poisoned earth. Creatures of a completely alien nature begin to spawn from pits that mysteriously appear, and viciously attack anything that approaches. Water becomes polluted and undrinkable, and disgusting clouds of noxious-smelling gas waft about the area. As this process occurs, the great tree spirit grows weaker with each passing day.

In a last effort to protect the balance of Eukara, the tree spirit used some of its power to open rifts into another world, the human world. These rifts appeared before people judged worthy, who could save the land when the spirit could not. Not originating from Eukara, these people were immune to the maddening effects of the taint, and could enter the toxic lands without succumbing to their influence. Using the rifts, the spirit pulled the ones it had chosen from their realm into its own, and in the resulting flux of energy, the humans gained animal forms, and promptly blacked out.

Accepted Character Sheets

ViperaUnion (GM)

Name: Tara
Age (Human Years): 16
Gender: Female
Species: Jaguar (Panthera onca)
Dietary Preference: Carnivore

Appearance: Tara, as a jaguar, is a big cat that closely resembles a leopard, but with a more muscular, stocky build, and a shorter tail. From nose to tail, she measures 6.4 feet in length, and stands 30 inches tall at the shoulder. She weighs approximately 124 lbs. overall. Like the rest of her species, Tara’s fur is patterned with rosettes that, unlike a leopard, possess small dots in their centers, and merge into rings on her tail. Her belly’s base color is pale white, but unlike a normal jaguar, her main fur color is not yellow and brown, but shades of silvery grey. Her eyes are also a very pale shade of blue, instead of the traditional golden yellow, making her somewhat resemble a snow leopard. Armed with powerful jaws and claws, she clearly appears to be a powerful hunter.

Personality: Tara is characterized by silent, observant behavior, and a lack of empathy that, while sometimes acting as a barrier between her and other people, prevents her from having her judgment being clouded by emotions. While initially reluctant to trust others, it is because of her logical reasoning that not being able to work well in a group may result in her or her companions getting killed. Coming from a rural background as a human, she isn’t squeamish about killing things for food, and as a result is not bothered by the fact that as a carnivore she will have to hunt prey to survive, because hunting was a part of life. Believing killing is not wrong in the case of self-preservation, she is opportunistic, and when the opening presents itself, she has no qualms about taking a life to save her own or that of her group. Fiercely loyal to those she considers friends, she is able to see through tricks and lies, and always has their best interests at heart. She will viciously defend her allies, and look out for them, even if they don’t want her to.

Abilities: As a Jaguar, Tara is naturally an excellent climber, as well as a powerful opportunistic stalk-and-ambush hunter. While preferred hunting grounds are forested areas, Tara doesn’t mind venturing into open fields and seeking food there. Unlike other big cats, Tara is one of two species aside from the Tiger that is actually a powerful swimmer, and is strongly associated with water. Armed with extremely powerful jaws that surpass all other big cats, Tara’s bite can crack even the thickest of bones, and even pierce the shells of armored reptiles, such as a sea turtle’s. She can haul incredibly heavy animals she has killed as prey, enough to carry them into trees, or through water without dropping them or sinking. Individually, she can drag animals up to 800lbs. all by herself a long distance, although her species normally hunts things weighing up to only 660lbs. in dense jungles. A single swipe of her powerful paws allows her to kill armored creatures swiftly and easily. Night vision makes her capable of hunting at night. One of the greatest species of ambush hunting, Tara moves quickly and silently.


Name: Lucy
Age (Human Years): 18
Gender: Female
Species: Asian Elephant (Elephas maximus)
Dietary Preference: Herbivore

Appearance: Lucy, as an Asian elephant, stands at approximately eight feet at the shoulder. The length of her body from head to tail, including the trunk, is 20 feet, with the tail being 4.3 feet long. She weighs around 2.72 tons. Unlike an African elephant, Lucy has small ears, a level back, smooth skin, a horizontal abdomen, and an extension at the tip of her trunk. She also has dorsal bumps on her head, and depigmentation on her skin. Her feet are more useful for manipulating objects than that of an African Elephant. In her mouth are very small tusks, which are not visible unless she opens it. Her skin is a dark greyish-black, but there are speckles of pale white skin on the tip of her trunk, on much of her face, and around the edges of her ears. She has large, dark amber eyes with long eyelashes. Her typical vocalization sounds to other animals like a deep rumble, although she possesses many other sounds that can be used.

Personality: Lucy is an extremely sweet, gentle person at heart. Empathetic and friendly, she allows smaller creatures to ride on her back, making travel much easier for companions that can’t keep up with larger or faster members of a group. She is also helpful in the sense that using her great strength, she can clear large obstacles that most other creatures cannot pass through. Tending to see the best in people, she values every skill and ability that other people possess, and often acts as the glue that binds friends together. Brave and courageous, she is quick to leap into a situation to defend others, and may sometimes even seem fearless, although she deals poorly with situations in which friends start to fight. She may spontaneously burst into tears if her companions are angry with one another, which often makes people feel extremely guilty, and then settle the argument to make her stop. Unfortunately, Lucy’s kindness comes at a price, as she is sometimes naïve in her sense of compassion. As a result, she may be too trusting of others, and oblivious to tricks and lies.

Abilities: As an elephant, Lucy has many useful abilities. With as many as 60,000 muscles in her trunk, she can use it to grasp things with surprising accuracy and dexterity, able of performing delicate tasks, such as cracking open a nut without breaking the seed inside. This trunk is incredibly flexible, and can be used as a snorkel when crossing rivers or lakes, allowing Lucy to completely submerge herself and still breathe. The trunk’s strength alone is impressive, and it can lift up to 660 pounds. With controlled air flow, it can spray water in a jet, and can hold up to 2.2 gallons of water. Lucy has a right lateral preference, twisting her trunk to the right when performing tasks, much like how humans are right or left-handed. Lucy’s sense of smell is approximately four times more sensitive than a bloodhound, making her an excellent tracker. Having tough skin, Lucy is more resistant to blunt blows, and has some greater degree of tolerance for extreme temperatures, although this tolerance is better for cold than heat. Her skin still remains largely sensitive to sunlight and loss of moisture, and can suffer depigmentation and damage if she does not coat it in mud or dust regularly. She may regularly lift up the soles of her feet to expose them to cool air. Unlike most animals, Lucy cannot run or gallop. Instead, she has a typical walk, and a faster gait in which her front legs appear to be running, but the hind legs resemble walking. At top speed, Lucy can go up to 11 miles per hour, at which most quadrupeds are already at a gallop. She is a strong swimmer, capable of going nonstop for up to six hours, although she can only swim one mile per hour, although among land animals her size this is considered impressive. Armed with incredible strength, she can feel trees and move large boulders with ease. She can also speak to other elephants over long distances by a unique variety of means. While moving quickly, or in the middle of an open field Lucy cannot hide, if she moves slowly, and is surrounded by foliage, she can be surprisingly quiet, due to the build of her feet that minimizes noise.


Name: Daryl
Age (Human Years): 24
Gender: Male
Species: Golden Eagle (Aquila chrysaetos)
Dietary Preference: Carnivore

Appearance: Daryl in length from the tip of his beak to his tail feathers, is about 3’ 2” inches in length, and has a wingspan of about 7’8” inches, making him a very large bird of prey. He is also a heavier bird, compared to other species, weighing about 7.9 lbs. although this is lighter than females, which tend to be larger than males. His powerful talons are remarkably large, and the back talon, known as the hallux-claw, is about 2.5 inches long all by itself. Daryl’s plumage is primarily a dark shade of brown, although it fades to a lighter golden color on the back of his crown and the nape of his neck. The long tarsal feathers that cover the top part of his feet are a light golden color. The bare portion of Daryl’s feet is yellow. His beak is the same color, but the very tip darkens to black. Daryl’s talons are black, also. With a bone structure that makes his face expressive, Daryl has yellowish-brown eyes that are more piercing because of their shape. In comparison to other eagle species, Daryl does not produce calls very often, tending to use words or remain silent. Whenever he does produce an actual call, it is weak, high, and shrill, considered to be pathetic and puppy-like. The vocalizations of a Golden Eagle do not match its fearsome reputation.

Personality: Originally a marine drill instructor volunteer who completed training for his profession, Daryl’s fierce, warrior-like personality seems to perfectly match the bird of prey he became. Disciplined, and trained to be ready for any situation, he doesn’t tolerate anyone stepping out of line, as one fatal mistake could get everyone killed. Despite seeming extremely harsh and rough, he truly does have the best interest of his companions at heart. He often only acts the way he does because he wants everyone to be prepared for the difficult tasks ahead. Past his gruff behavior, and occasional insults in response to even small mistakes, he has a heart of gold, and would do anything to protect his friends. No matter how much he might batter someone, he doesn’t ever truly hate them, and in truth, he does it because he genuinely cares. With the knowledge of a world of surprises ahead, not all of them pleasant, Daryl will ensure that everyone is tough or strong enough to endure them. There is no room for error, in an unfamiliar place.

Abilities: As a Golden Eagle, Daryl possesses formidable strength and power that exceeds all other predatory species. With a powerful grip that can crush bones, and a razor-sharp beak and talons that pierce deep into the flesh of enemies, Daryl quickly becomes a valid threat, even against creatures much larger than himself. In flight, capable of unhurried speeds of 32 miles per hour, he is able to go a great distance, unhindered by trees or other obstacles. During hunting or displays, he can go even faster, up to 120 miles per hour, exceeding any creature that exists on land. During a stoop dive, he can reach a shocking 200 miles per hour, making him one of the fastest animals in the human world. He is capable of killing regular prey animals that weigh up to 250lbs. With a clear third eyelid, he is able to fly in poor weather conditions and still see. His vision is also incredibly good for spotting things a long distance away, making him a wonderful lookout.


Dragonbud

Name:Aminta (Mint)
Age (Human Years): 15
Gender: Female
Species: Erethizon Dorsaum or Porcupine (North American porcupine)
Dietary Preference: Omnivore

Appearance: "Porcupines are usually dark brown or black in color, with white highlights. They have a chunky body, a small face, short legs, and a short thick tail. This species is the largest of the New World porcupines and is one of the largest North American rodents, second only to the American beaver in size. The head-and-body length is 60 to 90 cm (2.0 to 3.0 ft), not counting a tail of 14.5 to 30 cm (5.7 to 12 in). The hindfoot length is 7.5 to 9.1 cm (3.0 to 3.6 in). Weight can range from 3.5 to 18 kg (7.7 to 40 lb), although they average under 9 kg (20 lb).Their upper parts are covered with thousands of sharp, barbed hollow spines or quills (actually modified hairs), which are used for defense." THANKS WIKIPEDIA

Personality: Mint works poorly with others and is an even worse leader. She would only take direction from others that she deems worthy. However she does this rebelling very quietly, since she is quite shy and rarely speaks above a whisper. If you happen to gain her trust then she'll make a much better ally. Mint is rather resourceful and takes advantage of an opponents weaknesses to further herself along. And although she is slow as a porcupine Mint has a very quick wit and tongue.

Abilities: Mint, as a porcupine, is very good at some things and very bad at others. She has long claws and teeth that are good for attaching as well as climbing trees. Her long, flat tail comes in handy for balancing on such trees. She is also good at keeping quiet and blending into the background, making her excellent at camouflage. Mint is very nearsighted, having glasses if she was a human, however she makes up for this by having a great sense of smell and direction, if you put her on the right track. She also has a pretty good memory. As a porcupine Mint also has great defense, most predators would not even come close to attacking her. And although she can't shoot her quills, she might swing her tail into your torso if you threaten her. If you hurt her however she might have a hard time getting away because she is very slow.

JimBobV

Name: James
Age(human years): 14
Gender: Male
Species: Falco Sparveritus(American Kestrel, bird of prey)
Dietary preference: carnivore

Appearance: about 14 inches from head to tail. Males are a bit smaller than female kestrels. Light brown with a speckle of black dots. Smaller than most birds of prey, but tends to blend in better.

Personality: timid and cautious around others, but aggressive when competing for just about anything. Likes to lay about, but when he wants something, he'll do anything to get it. When confronted with difficult problems, he will tend to think negatively and often make his performance in the task even worse. Not being a very good listener, he's not exactly going to take one for the team if he needs to, and won't listen to those who don't express themselves strongly as the leader. Other than that, he typically will have sudden feelings of negativity, to strong feelings of confidence.

Abilities: flight(obviously), hunting, attacking and speed. He can collect sufficient amounts of food, and isn't going to starve. Talking isn't exactly his thing, but when he's surrounded by ten baddies, flying away at fast speeds can serve a lot of useful purposes. That's not saying he's going to ram a rhino at a hundred miles a hour, but catching small things is surprisingly easy with his talons

The Operator

Name: Jake Lance
Age (Human Years): 22
Gender: male
Species: Albertosaurus Sarcophagus
Dietary Preference: Carnivore

Appearance: I don't feel like writing a dinosaur sized description. Have an Albertosaurus.
Click me.

Personality:Jake tries to be a genuinely nice person whenever he can. Often going out of his way to help someone in need of it. Friends have described him as having a great deal of empathy for others. He will be, at the beginning of the RP, tired and somewhat worrisome due to the lack of sleep he's been getting from studying for finals, but he will mellow out as the time goes on. Jake has a smoking problem. See, he recently got out of college with a degree in Architecture, and it was the hardest thing he had ever done. He picked up smoking from his room make, who told him that it would calm his nerves. He was skeptical, but make the choice to try it and became addicted. In times of intense pressure, Jake will light a cigarette to calm himself. He is working on trying to get rid of the addiction since he know sit's horrible for him, but the progress has only just begun.

(Eh, I'll add more to it later if I need to. Not feeling it. Go on without me. Yada yada yada...)

Abilities: Like all Tyrannosaurs, the Albertosaurus has good depth perception, attention to movement, and an amazing sense of smell. Also like any Tyrannosaur, it has a large head that is around a meter in length, which is capable of generating extremely powerful bites with round seventy or so serrated banana shaped teeth. These teeth hold dangerous bacteria in them like that of a Komodo Dragon's which can lead to a blood poisoning later on. This dangerous head is mounted upon a very powerful S shaped neck, which has the strength to lift nearly a ton along with the skull (Calculated based on Tyrannosaurus Rex neck power. T.Rex was capable of lifting four tons with it's neck, Albertosaurus, being half the size and a third the weight, would be much less). An Albertosaurus has very long and powerful legs, and is capable of moving at speeds anywhere from fifteen to forty miles per hour. It's size, speed, and power allow it to tackle larger sized prey alone or in groups. However, as Albertosaurus was an amazing hunter, it did have several drawbacks to it's species. It's arms have little to no use despite being decently muscled, and are only the size of a normal human man's. It's bones are also relatively weak compared to the the ones found in some modern day mammals or it's larger and more destructive cousin, the Tyrannosaurus Rex. This is because it's bones are hollow, which gives it the ability to move so fast for it's size. When a pack is not accessible, lone Albertosaurs were ambush predators, using the underbrush as cover. The soles of their feet are covered in rubbery calluses which soften the impact to the ground, allowing the predator to move quietly through the underbrush or sneak up on prey. Because of their three toed foot design, Albertosaurus had a weight distribution factor that would allow it to walk on soft ground without sinking in or getting stuck.

The Silent Whisperer

Name:Mitchel "Mitch'' Cornell
Age (Human Years): 23
Gender: Male
Species: Leopard, Panthera pardus
Dietary Preference: Carnivore

Appearance: As a human Mitch was an average sized Person. About 5'6" 150 pounds and with blond hair. But that doesn't matter any more does it?

Now as a leopard he's much more intimidating. He's a now a 170 pound 8 Ft long killing machine. Like most Leopards he has a light white/yellowish coat with darker colored spots or rings.

Here's a pic
Spoiler:
 

Personality:Well Mitch is a fairly outgoing kind of guy. He likes going out hanging out with his friends and the like. Mall, Movies and the occasional Rock Concert. When he's around other folks he like to talk and stuff, some find him a bit obnoxious for it though. If he's in a group of folks like his friends intelligent discussions aren't uncommon and are about as likely to occur as less rational ones involving more mundane topics. When alone he like the simply read a good book or parse the internet for something to. He likes to sleep in whenever he can and this has lead to him being chronically late at times. He's even lost a few jobs over it.

When ever he finds himself in a group of unfamiliar people he ends to feel a bit self conscious until he figures out where he stands with them. Until then he's quite or more reserved. Normally this doesn't take long however and son he's playing whatever part it is his to play. He doesn't like new situations either, but is quick to adapt. Once he's done that he likes to find a good routine to fall into.

Abilities: Well Speed, Claws and Sharp teeth are all a given that it's a predator. However Leopards are also skilled at climbing as well. And as most are Nocturnal He has excellent night vision as well. Leopards also have an amazing amount of strength and have been known to haul a carcass' nearly twice there size.

Maxx Toron

Name: Cyrus
Age (Human Years): 16
Gender: male
Species: Fregata magnificens (Magnificent Frigatebird)
Dietary Preference: carnivore (pescavore, to be exact)

Appearance: This is what Cyrus looks like. Note that the pouch under his throat can be manually inflated or deflated. length: 39 inches. Wingspan: 85 inches.

Personality: Cyrus is a cocky guy, known for being rather hostile at times. Due to his fiery disposition and short temper, Cyrus gets into fight often, usually ending with him getting beaten up, especially now that he's a bird. He's usually semi-sociable, but due to his temper, has never had many friends. He's rather angered by the fact that he is a bird, as he doesn't possess the strength or speed to fight other animals. Because of this, he is even more angry as of late, making him someone you don't exactly want to hang around. He's one of those guys who needs an attitude adjustment.

Abilities: Though they may not be the strongest or the fastest, Magnificent Frigatebirds are still incredible creatures. They have an average speed of about 6 mph, which is rather slow. However, Magnificent Frigatebirds have incredible stamina, and are one of the few bird species with the ability to fly for 24 hours straight without needing to rest. They have been known to even sleep while flying, and can reach heights of 1.5 miles if they properly hit thermals. Male frigatebirds like Cyrus also have the ability to inflate large red pouches in their throats to startle attackers and attract mates.


Name: Aaron
Age (Human Years): 17
Gender: male
Species: Pandion haliaetus (Osprey)
Dietary Preference: pescavore

Appearance: This. length: 24 inches. Wingspan: 71 inches.

Personality: Aaron is your typical bully. He is a rather talkative fellow, and likes himself quite a lot. He's a major head case, a guy who "loves me some me" in the words of Terrell Owens. The fact that he's probably the strongest seabird around save the occasional pterodactyl is a huge ego boost for him, and he likes to show off by bullying the other sea birds around and stealing others' fish. He's one of those bullies, however, that standing up to just won't work. Unlike the usual bully, Aaron doesn't have a problem with getting in a fight. He has the firepower to do so, and will rip any bird that challenges him to pieces.

Abilities: Ospreys, being birds of prey, have very sharp hooked claws designed to dig into fish and hold on tight. Their beaks are just as sharp, allowing them to tear apart fish or aggressive birds. Ospreys are fast fliers, able to hit about 40 mph flying straight, and nearly 80 mph in a dive. Another perk of being an osprey is that ospreys like Aaron have an incredible ability to adapt to almost any environment where there is water and fish. Aaron can comfortably live in almost any climate.


Name: Damien
Age (Human Years): 16
Gender: male
Species: Andrewsarchus mongoliensis (Andrewsarchus)
Dietary Preference: carnivore/scavenger

Appearance: This. Height: 6 feet. Length: 11 feet weight: 2,200 lbs.

Personality: Damien has the perfect personality for the beast which he occupies. He's a tough boy, both physically and mentally, and is stubborn, making him sometimes difficult to reason with. He's a McCoy type; a guy who doesn't care what's logically sound, but what he feels is "right". He has a strong sense of justice, and shies away from what he doesn't feel is morally sound. He kind of has his own set of morals, and will follow them no matter what the cost. Damien is willing to put his life on the line to protect others. Because of this, he can be rather reckless, but tries to keep friends out of danger.

Abilities: Andrewsarchus was one of the most dangerous predators to have ever walked the Earth. Nearly twice the weight of a polar bear and a foot bigger in both length and height, Andrewsarchus is an apex predator. Its enormous weight combined with its massive claws and teeth make Damien a force to be reckoned with. He has a top speed around 30 mph, allowing Damien to outrun most prey.


Flowerfox

Name: Robert Ruffington
Age (Human Years): 15
Gender: Male
Species: Larus argentatus (European Herring Gull)
Dietary Preference: Omnivore

Appearance: This. Robert is also 25 in. long, and weighs 2.83 lb. He has a wingspan of 61 in.

Personality: Robert, being a complete nerd, and often being picked on by other kids his age at school before he got transported to Eukara, is known to be a little timid, and a bit of a loner. He believes that it is impossible for him to have friends, though he still tries anyway, due to a secret desperation to make some. If you do manage to befriend him, however, he will be loyal, as ong as you don't break his trust. It's very hard for him to forgive if you do that. He also tends to be socially awkward at times, though he usually has good intentions.

Abilities:
Robert's main ability is flight, though this is pretty obvious. He also has large, wide feet with thick, leathery skin which allows him excellent weight distribution and protection from sharp objects (he may simply balance himself on top of these obstacles with little apparent concern). He can dive underwater, though can only get to 1-2 meters deep, due to natural buoyancy. He also has an unhinging jaw, which allows him to consume large prey.


LucanArcher


Name: Desmond
Age: 24
Gender: Male
Species: Bubo bubo (Eurasian Eagle-Owl)
Dietary preference: Carnivore

Appearance: Looks like this.

Personality: Desmond isn't among the most social of people. This is mostly caused by his great lack of empathy, and his tendency to state whatever occurs to him without considering someone else's feelings. This doesn't mean he doesn't care about other people, though. He often bluntly states what others don't want to see, thinking to do them a favor, but often hurting their feelings in the process. When faced with a serious situation, Desmond will always choose the most logical course of action.

Abilities: Eurasian Eagle-Owls possess extraordinary vision. They can spot a mouse or a worm in the grass even when they're flying high in the sky, especially in low-light conditions. Their eyes are specifically adapted to this so-called Binocular Vision. This adaption does come with some disadvantages, though; Owls are far sighted, and cannot focus on objects that are less than a few centimeters away. Also, owl eyes are tubes instead of spheres, and cannot rotate in their sockets. This is why owls have evolved to be able to turn their head 180 or even 360 degrees.
As a human, Desmond was always good at deducing the recent or distant history of a place from very small details. When applied to people, this may give the uncanny impression that he is able to read minds.
Owls' wings are developed to muffle the sound of flight. This ability, combined with his feathers' camouflage pattern, allows him to approach completely unnoticed, especially at night.

Name: Myra
Age: 22
Gender: Female
Species: Panthera tigris tigris (Bengal tiger)
Dietary preference: Carnivore

Appearance: Looks like this

As you can see, the coloration of Myra's fur differs from that of a normal tiger.

Personality: Myra is cunning, unpredictable and probably a bit insane. She has always enjoyed mind games; manipulating people's thoughts. She could easily have turned her hobby into a proper profession by becoming a psychiatrist or something related. She tried this path for a while, but had one big problem: it was so boring! Myra didn't last long in any kind of job, be it waitress or marketing expert, so she decided to try something new, and became a master criminal.
Myra thrived in the world of crime, orchestrating grand heists, and getting her hands dirty during some assassinations as well. Whatever the job, she always managed to come up with an intricate plan, laying many false tracks to confuse any poor law enforcer who'd try to solve the case. In short, Myra is easily bored, and tried to deal with this by seeking thrill in less than legal activities when she still was a human. She enjoys laying intricate traps and playing with the minds of her allies and enemies alike, something that may come in handy in Eureka, but that is a story for later...

Abilities: ...And later is now! I think I explained Myra's mental talents sufficiently in the 'personality' section. The rest will become clear during the story. Now on to the advantages of being a Bengal tiger.
Tigers have especially powerful jaws and front paws, but the rest of their bodies aren't exactly weak either. Their stripe patterns (that is still functional despite Myra's alternative coloration) allows them to remain unseen as long as they keep decent distance from whomever they're hiding from. Even with their great masses, tigers can reach speeds of about 49–65 km/hr (35–40 mi'hr), although they can only do so in short bursts, since they have relatively little stamina. They are also one of the few catlike species that are actually good at swimming. They can climb trees, albeit with more difficulty than most cats because of their weight, and are able to leap very long distances.

I was kidding, but okay! Turns out I'm good at climbing Trees! Last nigh I climbed about 40 or 50 foot up in one while hiding in a game of Man Hunt. I'll think about a character... Might join it if I'm not too busy this week.

Great! I'm actually really excited to start this. I'm going to design pictures on GIMP to show some of the landscapes. I actually talked it over with FlowerFox in the chatbox, we came up with some great ideas for the scenery, as well as some of the creatures that will run around.

Try a leopard or a monkey...those are good climbers. I call the jaguar, though.

This looks extremely interesting, but I have no idea what kind of animal I'd like to be.

Name:Aminta (Mint)

Age (Human Years): 15

Gender: Female

Species: Erethizon Dorsaum or Porcupine (North American porcupine)

Dietary Preference: Omnivore

Appearance: "Porcupines are usually dark brown or black in color, with white highlights. They have a chunky body, a small face, short legs, and a short thick tail. This species is the largest of the New World porcupines and is one of the largest North American rodents, second only to the American beaver in size. The head-and-body length is 60 to 90 cm (2.0 to 3.0 ft), not counting a tail of 14.5 to 30 cm (5.7 to 12 in). The hindfoot length is 7.5 to 9.1 cm (3.0 to 3.6 in). Weight can range from 3.5 to 18 kg (7.7 to 40 lb), although they average under 9 kg (20 lb).Their upper parts are covered with thousands of sharp, barbed hollow spines or quills (actually modified hairs), which are used for defense." THANKS WIKIPEDIA

Personality: Mint works poorly with others and is an even worse leader. She would only take direction from others that she deems worthy. However she does this rebelling very quietly, since she is quite shy and rarely speaks above a whisper. If you happen to gain her trust then she'll make a much better ally. Mint is rather resourceful and takes advantage of an opponents weaknesses to further herself along. And although she is slow as a porcupine Mint has a very quick wit and tongue.

Abilities: Mint, as a porcupine, is very good at some things and very bad at others. She has long claws and teeth that are good for attaching as well as climbing trees. Her long, flat tail comes in handy for balancing on such trees. She is also good at keeping quiet and blending into the background, making her excellent at camouflage. Mint is very nearsighted, having glasses if she was a human, however she makes up for this by having a great sense of smell and direction, if you put her on the right track. She also has a pretty good memory. As a porcupine Mint also has great defense, most predators would not even come close to attacking her. And although she can't shoot her quills, she might swing her tail into your torso if you threaten her. If you hurt her however she might have a hard time getting away because she is very slow.

Other: 'Cloud Forest'

I would love to join this, but I'm overbooked. I love the name though. Nice biology reference.

Eukaryotic cells are animal cells, correct?
