probably for #Race-of-Aleria
I was looking through my art ideas I have written down and I wrote "zombie boar named scimitar" LOL
but I decided that would be a worthless character unless I created a chimera out of it for an OCT, like many people wanted me to do. so I made him based off a husky, but with boar parts that left nasty burns/mutilated skin where they were fused together.
Name: Slíđrugtanni was his lab name, in reference to the Norse gods Freyr's and Freyja's boar, but he renamed himself Scimitar, which is a curved blade
Age: unknown, most likely adult
Species: husky/boar chimera
Height: 3 ft at the shoulder
Weight: around 150 pounds
Abilities/Skills: Scimitar is extremely agile, despite his weight, because he is mostly composed of a husky. his long legs help him run and jump farther distances.
Strengths: his teeth are incredibly strong, able to crush and tear many things. if he can aim the horns on the back of his head, they can be used as weapons. his back hooves are dangerous, but it's almost impossible for him to use them, especially with force.
Weaknesses: when stressed physically or mentally, his "boar parts" ache, like his back legs, chest and jaw, making them weaker and him less willing to fight. if stressed more, he has withdrawals and convulsions of pain and is incapacitated, usually by blacking out or refusing to move. his legs and horns are rather brittle, since they were not fused as successfully as his teeth. he's more used to his physical pain than mental pain, so jabs at his appearance or usefulness are more traumatizing to him.
Personality: Scimitar is known for being incredibly determined. having endured lots of pain to the point of almost throwing himself off a cliff or laying down and never getting up, his tired body isn't yet ready to surrender. his main goal is to find a way to reverse the fusion and remove the boar parts so that he may die peacefully and painless - he has nothing else to live for. this isn't to say he acts depressed, instead he is just aware of reality and the hand of death that awaits him either way, so he'd rather go down fighting for that sliver of solace.
Mannerisms/Attitude: he thinks that others are in his way, so for the most part he refuses to talk to anyone unless they look like they have knowledge that can help him, or if they force him to talk. he may stutter and curse when stressed. his voice is pretty strained and low.
History: Scimitar remembers nothing of his life before being fused with a boar, only that the boar is foreign and he was once just a carefree dog. he was developed as an illegal weapon, not funded by the government but created by a small group of radicals to be unleashed upon the public as a form of terrorism, along with other chimeras. he thinks he was created to be cloned, and as "stage 1" for a larger terrorist attack/rebellion. however, he was mostly a failed project - he was intended to have the agility and loyalty of a dog, yet the strength of a boar. instead, he came out brittle, save for his teeth, and extremely disloyal; his horns on his head were also an unexpected side effect. he was kept alive, but no longer the main project. eventually, the radicals were discovered and arrested. while deciding whether to exterminate the chimeras or keep them longer, he escaped.
Dislikes: he LOATHES other boars or anything of their species, and for the most part, dislikes other dogs as well.
I'm sorry he's so generic x:
