Persona height: ~6' 3", 7' (with antlers)
Beast self height: ~14' (to top of head)
So the idea behind my persona is the essence of what I am basically. First I thought about my identity as a whole and this is kinda what I came up with:
Being tall is just a big part of what I am. So as such, my persona would be tall. I did not factor in weight because, as comfortable with my weight as I am, I don't see it as a part of my identity. Plus I figure if I was a dragon I would have a much faster natural metabolism.
I like to be compact. I hate leaving anything behind and I like everything either being on or near my persona. Therefore, if I was going to use anything as a defense (as most animals do) it would have to be on my person.
I am not a big person when it comes to colors. I don't like wearing big LOOK AT ME!! colors. I don't like attracting attention to myself at all. So! natural, non-flashy colors for me.
Those extra arms are not because I'm extra active. I'll leave it at that.
Apparently I intimidate people. Whether it's with how I look, act, dress, talk, etc. I intimidate people into either being afraid of me, competative for grades/attention, avoiding my all together etc. So for my persona I wanted to convey that part of myself, hence the spikes/horns.
-West with a hint of East
I'm half japanese. but I didn't want to go all the way japanese and draw a chinese dragon. I just prefer western dragons. So I have deer antlers. My little tribute to my eastern heritage.
As for what my beast form can do, the extra arms become wings. I designed the persona with that in mind. I've always found it weird where people have these personas/anthros who have wings that come from nowhere when they change forms. I'm a logical kind of person, and I really didn't want wings in persona form, so they are extra arms with webbing on them. There are some minor details/webbing that I forgot to add in, but meh
it looks okay to me as of now.
In the contest, we can have two of three powers for our beast form (Strength, Flying, Fire Breathing)
Hee... Flying is not one of the powers. And neither is firebreathing. I told you. I'm lazy. The wings are like the appendix. They don't work. Things that small are not going to life my beast form into the air. They'd have to be at least twice as big. I'm a fairly solid person. And as a person, I'm not given to much fire breathing, however you want to metaphorize that. No, I'm more of a bone-crusher type. So my beast form has incredible jaw and limb strength. The tail, despite tapering to a nice thin point, is wicked fast and extremely powerful. I'm not one given to violence, but provoke me enough and you'll see the amount of damage I can do.
Annnnnd I know someone is going to mention the tail (mostly because I've gotten a comment on it already).
It's a style preference. I like it. Deal with it. And yes, there are snakes and lizards in the world where their tales kink like that.
Also, for those wondering how her tail fits into her pants being that wide, imagine it being like a croc's or geko's tail where it's thinner where it connects to the body.
Ugly wings are ugly.
