Town: Morran ForestPersonality:
A tough warrior in his world, exuberant and outgoing. Very sociable and does not do well mentally by himself, gets lonely and then melancholy easily. However is self sufficient in terms of taking care of himself physically, can hunt and survive by himself well enough but prefers to be part of a group. Very easy going and laid back, has a 'why not' attitude to life. Has no qualms about fighting or killing, but is not confrontational unnecessarily.Is there anything you feel very STRONGLY that your character NOT be drawn doing? (Kissing another character, etc) :
Causing pain intentially, while he enjoys fighting and hunting, he is not sadistic and he takes pleasure in clean kills, hence he rarely uses his fire in combat unless desparate. He's a nice guy, he wouldn't be mean on puropse (but may cause offense unintentionally, he's blunt and says whatever comes into his head). Rarely attacks unless attacked first or has a very good reason to, would rather talk to others and make new mates than enemies. Would never willingly use magic (but of course can be affected by it), has a healthy respect for it and those that weild it.Physical traits:
Can fly very well in open spaces, but poor aggility in close quarters. Is an effective fighter that relies on strength to win fights. Jaws are very strong and has a lot of big, sharp teeth. 'Arms' are almost useless, has three digits on each hand but are very weak and cannot reach far at all with them. Almost never uses them and holds them still, unless gesturing with them for some reason. Fire is as hot as your average flamerthrower, it won't melt metal but will set fire to vegetation, cloth, wood and will cause severe burns if used on another creature.History:
Igbo comes from a world with several dragon species, and many clans of dragons within each species. With the exception of one species that is capable of using magic and stands apart from disputes, they all are either fighting each other or in alliances between clans to fight others. Outside of this one species, none are capable of using magic and have a huge respect for any that can. Clan life is everything to all the dragons on this world, no one lives alone. To be non-comformist is unheard of here, and Igbo would not understand such a concept. Where he comes from, Igbo is nothing remarkable. He is a popular, competant warrior in a big clan, a good, enthusiastic fighter but not exceptiona in skill. He was in his squad, fighting alongside his clanmates against a rival dragon when he was accidentally transported to Hetherev. He can hardly remeber anything about his previous life but knows he has lost his friends and family, which saddens him greatly and occasionally plunges him into sad moods. His world has many other kinds of creatures, including humans, and Igbo is used to interacting, both on friendly and hostile terms, with a variety of different kinds of intelligent life. His own clan has long had an alliance with a small humanoid species that crafts things for them in return for protection from other dragons, so he is used to respecting and talking to those smaller than him.

(My first Hetherev character, one of my two adoptables, Igbo and Aquillon. The other one will join him there in due time I think... but in the mean time here is Igbo's finished reference sheet (its only taken me 6 months to get round to making it! opps). I've changed his design quiet a bit since I first drew him to adopt him [link]
but I like it alot better now. His colour scheme is based on a high contrast albino ball python.)
