Nina Reference Sheet by madlyinlov3 Nina Reference Sheet by madlyinlov3
In the duration of making this character I had a nosebleed, got so hyper that I was vibrating, and started neighing like a horse. Something is wrong with me.

Other accessories: Cloth wrapping around her head to cover eyes (for others comfort)
Weapons: Claws, teeth, lust control
Health: Strong resistance to diseases and poisons due to Lenian Nature (but for some reason, she gets colds extremely easily if she is in a cold area.)
Hygiene: Clean as habitat/eyesight allows her to be (not very)
Physical Flaws: Blind, has claws for fingers, hole in back.

-Able to magnify/destroy feelings of love and lust in others. (can not create feelings)
-Can see the ones who look at her back with a red outline in her mind.
-Able to use claws as… claws.
-Greater hearing and smelling than the average human.
-She loves her anger. Getting angry usually means power, and pain usually means anger.
-High resistance to pain.

-Unable to see anything except the outline of those who saw the hole in her back.(she sees the outline through weapons and objects, so she runs into a lot of walls.)
-Isn't used to being blind.
-The hole in the back is very vulnerable and her biggest weakness to all attacks. (attacks do almost tenfold the damage)
-Not used to her fingers being replaced by claws.
-Flammable. (Her fur will catch on fire, but it takes a lot to make her actually burn.)
-Mirrors reflect the red outline of others.
-Two metals making a "ting" sound calms her greatly.

Background: She first appeared on Moonside Beach as a normal Lenian, and she sought out after Master John Denake to serve him and be his Lenian. When she found him, he greedily took her in, basically bragging to his friends that he had a Lenian companion. At first he just used her as a hunting companion, then he used her to help with black market trading, and eventually used her as an assassin for traitors. After a couple years of this, one of his old drinking buddies mentioned the 'new market' for Lenians. Man was able to 'Have their way' with Lenians without worry of a baby, and because of that, Lenians were being sold for high prices. Taken by greed, John sold Nina to the black market. When she woke up surrounded by strangers, her love for him was destroyed. Fueled by her rage, she escaped the black market, and hunted for 'her master' once again. Finding him, she killed him out of her hated before he could speak. After she killed him, she became curse'd. She lost vision in her eyes, the hole appeared on her back, and her fingers were replaced with sharp claws. Ever since then she has been searching for a way to restore her eyesight.

Fighting style: Usually tries to get the jump on others if she is able to see their outline, if not, she will try to make them see her hole so she can see them. If they attack her and she cant see them, she will fight wildly and try to attack where she thinks they are, sound and scent will be her best guess if at a distance.
Personality: Usually cold to those who she doesn’t know, but try's to be kind to others as long as they be kind to her. But, if anything gets in her way, she doesn't care what it is, she will destroy it. She will also use anything to her advantage, as long as she gets what she wants, and she will use her own body as a distraction. She also despises Perverted men. Though she will usually temp and tease men to be perverts, if they show or speak of any perverted thoughts, she will "Punish" them. She herself is quite Lusty, but prefers dark-humored men, or a man that can actually stand up against her.
-When thinking about stuff, she will usually think about fortune cookie sayings.
-She knows the weak point of most males. Don’t be surprised if she takes a sexy pose and starts making dirty comments. (after all, her lust control cant create any feelings)
-If Nina is completely lost and doesn’t know what to do, she will usually take a break and draw figures in the dirt (not that she can see the drawing, she just likes the sound).
-If she is incredibly angry beyond reason and has nothing to vent it out on, she will try to force-calm herself by flicking her two loop earrings to make a "ting" sound.
Reason for joining the Tournament of rings: To wish for her eyesight back.

-Nina does not regret anything she does. She believes everything that is supposed to happen, will happen. If she was supposed to accidentally kill someone, it was supposed to happen. If she is meant to meet her fate alone, it will happen.
-Nina only wants her eyesight back. She loved to see beautiful sights and glorious wonders of the world. She does not see the hole in her back as an actual weakness, as it lets her be able to track those who seen her down.

What do you guys think of her? Mary Sue-ish? Original? Please comment so I know if I should change something about her. She is a brand new character (like, only a few hours old) so I will need to make edits if she needs them.

Makes me want to know her more. Like how does she work with those claws. Did she ever hurt herself since she is blind and stuff? (with the claws).

Its a very nice character. :clap:

Now I need to find out what is this tournament thing. :D

Nice character indeed! I don't think she is Mary Sue-ish... actually it's pretty original! Besides, a character could have a very mary sue-ish Ref Sheet and still be really original... it's all in the way they act on the comics! ^^

Do you have anymore info about lenians? I'd love to find out more about her species.
madlyinlov3 Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh, Lenians are just magical half animal/human creatures I made up. I guess I really should explain everything about Lenians soon.... XD I'll try to get a post about them up by tomorrow.
Is there anything in particular you want to know?
ranasan Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2012  Hobbyist
Just some random things like is it any animal species or just restricted to mammals? (Could there be a half praying mantis Lenian?) Is this curse'd business restricted to Lenians only? And how fast do they metabolize theobromine?
