(Previously known as Hirun Hikari)

A seventeen year old with no Resonance Soul that lives in the slums of Dexterity.

He and Fell grew up together– both having been abandoned by their parents.

Hikari has managed to take control of the slums as a sort of impromptu gang leader. He is a symbol of hope for orphans and the powerless.

Hikari is the person behind Fell’s wire implants. It was he who orchestrated the deal between Fell and Roy Salamandra the scientist.

Fell Askasa

(Previously known as Fortenra Askasa)

Fell Askasa is the eighteen year old boyfriend of Tali Heartlie. He frequently wears suits, as that is the required dress for the restaurant he works at, which is also owned by the Heartlies. He lives with Tali in an apartment he provides.

Fell used to live in the slums, a homeless and abandoned child. His best friend and “brother” was Hikari. They formed a gang together with a few others, and owned the land for a while, before Tali “claimed” him as her boyfriend.
Growing tired of Tali’s foolishness, Fell begins to rethink his reasons for staying with the girl, and attempts to go back to his childhood roots.

In the past, Fell received surgery to have wire implants at Hikari’s request. Fell fights with wires coming from his wrists. They’re deadly and quick, preventing the need for him to use his resonance soul. Fell could be considered Hikari’s number one henchman, as he tends to do what the other says without question.
Fell isn’t sure where this trust comes from, just that it is deep, and he’ll do anything to keep it.

  • NO GENITALIA
    They weren’t designed so please don’t design your own and put it in your art.

    It’s open to interpretation and you can feel free to diverge from it, but at least read it once. Thank you.
  • PLURAL OF BEFTHAR IS “BEFTHAR”.
    Don’t ever say “befthars.” If you really want to put an ‘s’ on something, call them “befthar dragons.”
    Generally the easiest way to plural befthar is just calling the species “the befthar.”

    A befthar will never have wings. If it has wings, it is not a Befthar anymore.
    Befthar should not have a desire to fly.

BEFTHAR HISTORY/CULTURE

The Befthar are an incredibly rare dragon, said to have been the bridge between the spirit realm and humans, having taught shamanic practices to The First People.

As the “more civilized” world began to look down on magico-religious practices, the Befthar became hunted for the magical properties of their body parts.

Every Befthar has an elemental magic theme in their design– this is the element they specialize in. However, all Befthar are able to do any sort of magic to a lesser degree than their specialty.

Befthar come in all different sorts of colors, personalities, and designs. However, they are a species that is close to the ground and in-tune with nature. Their beliefs vary but fall in line with many of the stereotypes of witch doctors and/or native people. They mostly subscribe to the Gaia Theory.

Generally, they stay out of physical confrontation. They are only ‘dragons’ in the vaguest sense in this regard. They use their magic to fight for them, often in very out-of-the-box ways. For example, one unlucky man tried to kill the last remaining Befthar. That Befthar decided the man would be cursed to slowly turn into a Befthar himself, becoming the last Befthar after the curser’s death.

Befthar are very open to interpretation, so I’m eager to see what you can come up with!
In my timeline, Befthar are rare, and this is how they act. But if you have another timeline– say before humans became truly ‘civilized’– who’s to say they would behave the same way? Perhaps they stayed in herds, fought wars, or partnered with medicine men?

BEFTHAR ATTRIBUTES

The Befthar are about the size of a grizzly bear.
They have scales over most of their body, except for their “hair” which is all feathers.

Befthar have compound eyes (bugs eyes). They can come in any (number) of colors and designs, but keep in mind the lens shape and texture.

Their faces are very flat. If they stand on their hind legs and look down at you, the head can take on a vaguely human appearance and may be were aboriginals got the ideas for their masks.
If viewed from the side, the flat-ness becomes a bit more obvious.
Try not to give the head proportions you are used to. Try to draw a kite instead. That is the best example I can give. It is supposed to look very odd from a profile view.

Ears are soft, formed of mostly down feathers.

Tongue is long and prehensile.

Feet are based on an anteater’s.

Their main diet is termites, but also other types of bugs.

The free line art is of a Befthar from an arid region. Designs for other Befthar may differ, but they NEVER have wings.

Befthar can create illusions to appear as another thing, but cannot truly transform themselves. They can, however, transform others.

Evelyn Rose

1464909523.bornes_cherrywine(Previously Esvera Rose)

With light blonde hair and dark blue eyes, this twenty five year old Seeker has settled down from her hunt for the Soul Stealer to help teach Edmond Cannes’s fifteen year old adopted son, Ly, the basics of guns.
Evelyn lives in a bordering country to DeFrist, named Cybil. Here, she has brought in Ly for a year or two as her student in a favor to Edmond.

In many ways she feels as if Ly is her adopted son too, and Ly feels close to her as well, often asking questions about life and other sensitive subjects.

Evelyn believes that Resonance Souls hold a higher meaning, and places a great deal of faith in prophecy and fate.

Her own Resonance Soul is called the Tortoise Eye. She has the ability to heal others and construct protective shields and barriers made from ki. She can also see which Resonant a soul is holding based on the usage of their ki.

Eventually, Evelyn gives Ly a book entitled “Resonant Philosophy,” which is the main source of information about Resonance Souls across the world. The book is actually part of a series that is updated every five years.

Tali Heartlie

tali
This girl is adept at controlling, creating, and manipulating fire. Her hair is a fiery color and gives the appearance of fire itself. Tali’s heritage reigns from a line of mafia kings, and her Rez is seen as a testament to this.

Tali herself is a rather crude person. At only fifteen years old, she already says whatever is on her mind at the time, and is rather spoiled. Her parents gave her whatever she wanted, boyfriend included.

After being killed in chapter nine, Tali resigns herself to make her life “worth something” by stealing everything she “needs” to make a happy home with Fell.
After the boy left her, she becomes confused in her self identity, and longs to have him back- even if that means killing others or destroying anything that comes into her path.
The more often Tali dies however, the more detached from reality she becomes.

Tristan

trist-2
Placeholder Image

Formerly known as Twistex.

Tristan, or Trist for short, is a man who by day, helps manage the fetishist bar with Mabe, and by night, entertains guests as a manservant. Although he plays the submissive part well, he has a very dominant personality. His personal sexlife is quite different from what he does as an employee, as he too excels in keeping the two distinctly separate.
He and Mabe are in somewhat of a relationship – but it’s more likely they’re just cousins or something. Bornes doesn’t have enough interest in Trist to figure out the details of what’s going on.

Sanja

(Short girl with black curly hair in a maid outfit. No image yet)

Formerly Shine.

Sanja is a server at the fetishist bar in Dexterity. She’s a new recruit and quite innocent. She hasn’t found her true niche yet so she tries out varying acts. She came to Q first and vies for his patronage. She thinks his tail is “cute”. Q isn’t as into her as much as he is with Meri, but he can’t deny taking advantage of her is entertaining.

Maybel

No Image.

(previously known as Moonblossom)

Maybel, or Mabe for short, owns the fetishist bar where Sanja works in the city of Dexterity. She is quite responsible, confident, and definitely knows the difference between pleasure and business. And while they may mix slightly in her profession, when she has to do dirty work for clients, it’s mostly business.
She looks over her bar with a serious attitude, kicking anyone deemed unworthy out and quickly before they can harm her girls (or boys). While she handles the paperwork and legal things, she also will sing and/or preform on stage occasionally. While she is available for clients it’s extremely rare, assuming the role of a dominatrix. And she’s brutal. Bornes has a secret fascination with her for all her different traits, but he’d never dream of putting himself under her whip as her victim.

Drake

drake(Previously Druki)

Drake owns the fetishist bar Meri works at in the city of Sinico. He’s only in his twenties and opened his business off residuals from a famous movie he was in as a child. He looks much younger than he is and has a generally playful attitude. He’d never let any harm come to his girls, and man, does he have some sick and freaky fetishes displayed at his bar. Or maybe he isn’t into this stuff at all. Maybe he just does this as some sort of well-thought out, cleverly executed joke. That would be just like him.
