Audition entry for
. I had hoped to put in shading, but time just ran away from me. This at the least let Lucian be part of it all. Name:
195 cm (115 cm at withers)Gender:
MaleSpecies and origin:
Centauroid unicorn. As Lucian's height suggests, his body is partly based on deer rather than horses, and as such he's smaller than a traditional centaur would be (A horse would be at least 30 cm taller at the withers).
Lucian originates in a fantasy world, where he's the guardian of a healing lake.Personality:
Gentle and caring, Lucian is not one for lots of noises or activity around him. He likes solitude and tranquillity, even if there's often visitors at his lake. If pushed, Lucian will stand up for himself (or those in his care), and will absolutely turn away people that "looses lake privileges" due to bad behaviour. This is where a visitor might suddenly realise that "fierce unicorns serving as monsters in stories" isn't that far fetched.
Lucian has a pretty big chip on his shoulder in regards to non-centaur creatures that has unfounded prejudice toward his kind. At some point, the idea that centaurs was like animals, acted like the animal they were, or in his case acts all weird around virgin humans just got too much for him, and he has little patience left towards this sort of behaviour. Relationships (family, friends, lovers etc.):
Lucian lives a pretty solitary life. He had close bonds with his mentor, teaching him the ropes of his job, and he still has contact with his family, but as it is, contact with lake visitors is plenty to fill Lucian's social needs. Hobbies and Occupation:
As mentioned, Lucian guards a healing lake. I'm not quite sure about his hobbies yet.Their usual/preferred style of clothing:
Fantasy styled clothing. Often in blue or greenish colours.
- YES, it is okay with me if someone else is drawing my character and makes them interact with other characters (granted that my OC is treated in a respectful manner)
Magic, harmony, tending to his lake, soft fabrics. Dislikes:
Aggressive people, meat, people making dumb assumptions of his species, his lake freezing over.Any other important details we all need to know about this OC (special abilities, strange obsessions etc.):
Never ask to ride on him!
1) It's just plain rude, and a cultural misstep of proportions, as most centaurs get pretty offended by people suggesting they're horses and should be treated as such.
2) Lucian's body just isn't built for it. It's not a horse body, but more of a combination of horse and white-tailed deer (and something else entirely), making it a lot more fragile towards weight. Also he's pretty small. Most ponies are actually larger than Lucian.
Also, Lucian has some healing and light magic (as well as some natural purification magic). He also has a few basic clothing spells, that allows for him to easily put on and take off clothing, even if it's on places actually out of reach for him.
