: 175 lbs.(79.4kg)Written Appearance
: His fur is tan with dark brown spots, speckling his body. His mane (hair) is white with black spots and his ears are solid black, long and pointed with black tufts on the end. His eyes are aquatic-blue and glossy like glass. His abdomen is a creamy white. As a servant, Lynx tends to wear baggy clothes—robes, pants, and tunics usually too big for his size. His outfits often match his fur, white, beige, and white with a soft tinge of blue. The reason he wears such garments is to veil his lean figure underneath. Without his clothes, Lynx doesn’t have a servant’s figure. His muscles have been hardened under rigorous training. Suspenders that are actually straps that hold several knives lace up his chest and shoulders. Black, loose-fitting pants and light, plated armor adorn his chest, shins, and shoulders. Sheathed at his hips are bronze claws.Personality
:Under the disguise of a kitchenhand, Lynx is cheery, playful, naïve, and always on the move. He is always given a shopping list from the head chef, and can be found around the markets, gathering groceries and ingredients for the royal family’s banquets. The head chef finds him to be a nuisance in the kitchen as he suspects him trying to sneak a taste of the dishes he’s prepared. The fact that the mere kitchenhand is actually a cleric is known only to Cougan, the king, and other clerics.
On the other hand, Lynx’s true personality is very ambitious. He shows slight arrogance, but not enough to be described as a character flaw. He is witty with the mind of a thief and can be quite the talker (manipulator). Lynx takes his job seriously. He’s been a Cleric since he was a kitten, and works hard collecting intelligence to keep the king and his family safe. Lynx lives his job every day and doesn’t believe in failure. He must succeed and must maintain exceptional performance. Because Lynx has never had a true father, he works hard to please Cougan.Likes
: His favorite foods are fish, rabbit, and venison. He likes being praised by his father-figure Cougan, and being the best that he can be. Dislikes
: Failure, doubt, being wrong, and people who try to tell him he can’t do something. Quirks/Flaws
: Type A personality – Lynx is constantly doing his job. He’s done it since he first became a Cleric, and this personality could have manifested from Cougan’s doing. Lynx will continue to work his hardest until he meets his undoing.Talents
: Accuracy, acute hearing, cooking, agility, and ballroom dancing.Occupation
: Cleric/Alter-ego kitchen lad Background
: Lynx started out as an orphan from what he remembers. As a kitten, he was a pick-pocket, and his fate was sealed the day he tried to pick the pocket of a Cleric. The Cleric was Cougan himself. He had caught Lynx, scolded him shrewdly, and sent the cat back on his way. Little did he know how ambitious the thief was for moments after, he caught the kitten trying to steal from him again, and again, and again. Having grown fed up, Cougan captured the stray boy and gave him an education. He then trained him to be a cleric.
Lynx’s abilities were tested in past wars with the Mutants of Plun-Darr. He and several other clerics were sent into battle alongside the Thunderian military to swiftly take out snipers and tankers that were pinning the allied units. It was his first eye-opener into the ugly truths of reality, and it has hardened him and made him stronger; the cat he is today.Weapon(s)
: Throwing Knives and bronze extendable claws that can extend up to six-inches.Special Ability
: Acute Hearing – Because of Lynx’s large ears, he is able to pick up sounds that no other cats can hear. Mice scurrying through the walls, people talking in the next room, the soft footsteps of an approaching enemy, the ruffle of clothes, etc. His hearing gives him the perception he needs to be the best knife-thrower in the kingdom. He can throw a knife without looking at his opponent for as long as he can hear him or her, their position can easily be perceived.Style
: As a projectile user, Lynx maintains range for his advantage. He is skilled with the knives he carries, able to not only throw them but use them for close combat if need be. Because he is shorter than most cats, his attacks are usually aimed low to make enemies taller than him have to work hard to guard against his swift swipes. If unarmed, he’ll use the claws on his hands and feet. He is adept at hand-to-hand combat if he so needs to defend himself, but he’ll dominantly stick to range, keeping his distance and constantly attacking the enemy’s openings.
Lynx has a special technique with his knives called Dance of a Thousand Needles
where he rapidly lobs knives at the enemy that can reduce them to a mere pin cushion in seconds. It is unknown if Lynx is actually producing 1,000 knives. No one has ever counted.
