Hyruu the color-changing dragon

Post by Hyruu on Fri Nov 25, 2016 2:28 am

Personality and the Basics


Name: Hyruu
Gender: Male
Type: Western dragon, with extra fluff ^w^
Age: 35
Date of Birth: 3 March
Personality: Hyruu is a rather calm dragon. Not the kind to burst with emotion, his emotions usually remain mostly hidden (apart from awkwardness, but this is another story). He will mostly stay alone or with few peoples, getting easily bothered by large crowds. All in all, not exactly the most sociable dragon ever. Getting him to warm up to someone can take time, but those who did realize he's one to value friendship enough not to dispense it unnecessarily.
Hobbies: Hyruu can often be found outside, that is if your eyes are keen enough to spot him when he's hunting. Other hobbies include cooking, even though it got him ill quite a few times (testing new ingredients always brings surprises)
Likes: For some reason, Hyruu likes the sound of wind chimes. Other than that he can often be found napping, letting the sun warm his fur and scales. And, of course, he always appreciates some good food. And sometimes the best recipes are the simplest.
Dislikes: Crowds, being disturbed during a nap, dragons who don't understand everyone needs personal space
Fears: Being restrained. Loosing his freedom is the one thing he fears, and should he be restrained he would try anything in his power to break away from the restrains, forcing his kidnappers to have to employ more drastic measures.
Hyruu also fears loosing the ones he considers his family (even if for now he doesn't have one apart from his adoptive father). He doesn't want a young one to live through what he lived the first months of his life.


Origin, Culture, and Family


Place of Origin: Somewhere in Layrian, though far from both Tribes
Tribe: Vuari
Position: Hunter, scout
Language: Vuarish, more fluent in Universal language due to his past
Home: In Vuari
Parents: Unknown, but visibly the offspring of a Vuari and a Stormcaller
Siblings: Unknown
Relatives: A Stormcaller that became his adoptive father
Mate: N/A
Offspring: N/A
History: As far as is memories go, Hyruu can't remember having ever been with his parents. Maybe they had to flee their nest, or his egg rolled in a place out of sight, or his parents completely abandoned him - all Hyruu had for an explanation were speculations. All that was sure was that he had to fend off by himself for a few months. Needless to say he wasn't in such a good shape when a Stormcaller passed by the area he was living in. The dragon took the young orphan under his wing, teaching him the basics to survive, as well as the of the common language.
From there, Hyruu lived a life of travels. With the dragon he now considered his father, he visited almost the whole world, discovering its marvels and wonders. But, all in all, he couldn't be perfectly happy. He craved a place to call home, and the life he was living was allowing him none.
Everything changed the day he and his adoptive father traveled to Vuari. It became evident his origins came from there (if the fur wasn't an already good clue) the moment he realized he needed none of the air support other dragons needed to climb the high mountains of the Vuari mountain range. But, mostly, for the first time Hyruu felt like he belonged to a place.
The goodbye was short and difficult, but Hyruu had made his choice. Now he lives in his new home, waiting for the visits of the dragon that, for all those years, was his father.


Physical Appearance and Accessories


Height: 30 feet
Length: 90 feet (long tail)
Wingspan: 100 feet (long wings)
Scale/Fur/Feathers: Hyruu possesses grey scales over which fur of the same color grew.
Eyes: Golden
Accessories: Tends to have a leather satchel adapted for traveling, always full of herbs for his cooking experiences
Armor: N/A
Horns/Spikes: Hyruu has two sturdy and curved horns at the top of his head. He also has two cheek horns that don't look really helpful. His dorsal spikes are not extravagantly long, and range from his head to his tail. A spaded tail tip is also present on his tail. All of those are golden in color.
Overall Appearance: Hyruu is a lean dragon for a Vuari, and his long tail and wings hint at a mixed origin. Best guess is Vuari and Stormcaller hybrid. His fur grows between his scales, but is thick enough to fully cover his body.


Abilities and Strengths


Abilities:
- Color changing scales and fur : One of Hyruu's most striking particularities is his ability to shift color. Everything on his body is able to change color, including his ornaments and even eyes. This can be triggered both voluntarily and by instinct.
Voluntarily, Hyruu can decide which color or pattern to take. This requires him to focus on the color or pattern he wants to take, and it will stay that way until he decides to change. He can also tune whether his scales and fur are mat or reflective on top of the color.
By instinct, Hyruu can just blend in his surroundings. He doesn't get to chose the color, but instead will naturally shift according to the scenery behind him relative to the focus he chose. This makes him adopt the pattern of the scenery behind him, thus acting as an extremely effective camouflage. The camoflage adjusts itself when Hyruu moves, adjusting in a fraction of second. The delay can be seen if he's walking fast or running, depending on whether there is a clear transition in the background or not.
An extension of the instinct way is the fact he tends to change color according to his emotions, his fur becoming shiny when he's happy, mat when he's sad, and an impressive crimson hue when awkward.

- Air blast : Hyruu's lungs are quite out of the ordinary. They seem to be able to expand much more than normal, allowing him to accumulate a good air supply (at the price of looking a bit silly with his inflated chest). This is particularly helpful when swimming, as the additional air also helps him float above water level.
Another interesting property is that Hyruu seems to be able to quickly adapt between the high altitude air of the Vuari city and the lower altitudes where other dragons reside, effectively allowing him to get down the mountains without needing air support.
The third property of his lungs is that they feature an abnormal strength. Hyruu is able to compress the air within his chest and release it in a powerful shockwave. It is extremely potent at close range, but quickly looses it's efficiency as the distance decreases.
Strengths: Hyruu's fur makes him resistant to cold. His lungs allow him to deal with both high and low altitudes. With his lean build, he is good at dodging and has an above average run speed (45mph). Good flying skills thanks to his large wings and tail
Weaknesses: All of Hyruu's abilities are suited for short range combat, leaving him vulnerable in the case of a long range attack.
His shockwave gets quickly useless as the distance to the target increases, on top of not being instant as he needs a few seconds to inhale the air and compress it. Also, once the air has been compresses he can't keep it for long before being forced to expell the shockwave, as he can't cancel it.
Hyruu's scales are softer than most dragons', leaving him vulnerable to slashing attacks. The fur on top of them also makes him have difficulties with hot temperatures.
Fighting Style: Confusing his opponents is Hyruu's speciality. He will blend in his surrounding, relying on surprise attacks and making him hard to spot so his enemies will miss him. He will then strike with quick attacks, aiming for his opponent's weak points.
Magic: N/A

Being restrained and losing your freedom are essentially the same things. Do you think you could add another fear?


Origin, Culture, and Family


Place of Origin: Somewhere in the continent where Vuari and Kamil live, though far from both Tribes Just in case the vagueness was a moment of forgetting the name of the continent, it's Layrian XD Nothing wrong with this though, just thought I'd help if it was needed.
Tribe: Vuari
Position: Hunter, scout
Language: Vuarish, more fluent in Universal language due to his past
Home: In Vuari
Parents: Unknown, but visibly the offspring of a Vuari and a Stormcaller
