Description:Kuruk Takoda, name of warrior from a different kind of world. A world of thieves, the lower class, peasants, beggars, and scoundrels. The reptilian man fits in quite nicely with his tall, proud stature and lean, muscular physique. He has a build that suggests years of acrobatics and labor, evident from his strong thighs and biceps.
His face is well designed for the face of a lizard. It is very typical reptilian, with a long, narrow snout and almost raindrop-like shape. Complementing his wild heritage, Kuruk has a very long tail, aiding him in balance and swimming though hindering his speed. Ravenous claws, his primary weapon in hand-to-hand confrontation, protrude from his digits on both his feet and his hands. Unusually, his feet only have four digits while his hands do indeed have five, one being a humanistic opposable thumb. The scaly beast also sports shoulder and abdominal oblique spikes, which act as a natural armor as he is usually not seen wearing any.
Kuruk sports multiple scars on his back from being whipped unmercifully by his previous master, signifying his prior history as a slave. He also has a terrible scar across his left eye from a barfight with an Ailour whose claws were sharper than his tongue.
The savra's rock-hard scales are of a deep, reddish-orange color, similar to fire. From his mandible down his chin through his belly and all the way to the underside tip of his tail is a much lighter orange color, giving his appearance more life. His claws are a dark reddish-brown, his scars are a hideous crimson that might remind one of decomposing flesh, and his eyes are a pleasant brown. The only unusual markings he has a tribal tattoos he received when he escaped from slavery and regained his freedom. They are a dark red and can be found on his arms and across his scapulae, just above his whipping scars. Blue (his favorite color) light armor usually covers these tattoos.
PERSONALITY AND BELIEFS
Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
Religious Affiliation: selfish
Likes: other bestial races, other thieves, fences, dogs (a LOT), kyniks (more so than the other beasts), Nivema, Coracinus Rex
Dislikes: virtually all humans, assassins, killing, fighting, battles, physical pain, growing a new tail when it gets ripped off, impaired senses, feeling seen and vulnerable, opening up to others
Description:A kindhearted man, Kuruk is a good friend. He is not mean to you for no good reason, though he tends to have a bit of hostility toward humans, especially vedials. He enjoys a good laugh and really loves his fellow bestial buddies, doing his best to make a lot of them. The lizard man is really a nice guy.
He takes his work less seriously than others. Kuruk enjoys a good time at the tavern with his friends and usually forgets about his thieving, fencing way of life. The savra just seems like a normal guy in the less-than-wealthy world of beasts. One might never expect him of his affiliation with a guild of thieves.
When he is working, however, he does become serious. When stealing, his perceptive skills go through the roof. He does not allow for distractions, and he is quick-thinking and quick on his feet. Kuruk takes his heists very seriously, but only when he's in the middle of them. In the real world, they're a laughable concept to him. Usually he participates in independent thievery to assist the guild further, but some of the more senior members will assign him special heists.
Kuruk has a strong hatred for creatures owning other creatures. This is because of his past as a slave to a vedial, and this is the only reason he refuses to buy and own one thing he's wanted more than anything else: a pet dog. The savra absolutely loves canines, befriending any canine he can find (save for kyniks). Whenever he sees puppies for sale, his heart breaks a little bit, knowing he wants one so dearly but just can't bring himself to own one.
