Dragonfly Deer: Biography

Pegasicorn's picture
Last Updated: July 29, 2017 - this needs some updating, but at least I have my broken images taken care of finally (until I stop being lazy about updating them)
Can you believe I haven't touched this in almost 3 years??



The Dragonfly Deer












*


Name: Scape(goat)
Name Origin: "land|scape|goat" His picto made me think of a landscape, and his favorite mask and antlers made him seem goat-like. Landscape and scapegoat share the word "scape", so that was it.
Nickname: ScapeCop (From back when there was a relentless deer causing problems. Scape's RD chases were like a high speed police chase.)
Birthday: February 4 (Aquarius)
Gender/Sex: male
Species: TEF red deer/normal red deer
Appearance: Favors the nightfall pelt, orca mask, and orca antlers, but sometimes switches to default antlers. (Note: When I draw him, I add a gold tail tip and dragonfly mark on his forehead. His "natural" look is the default deer "set".) Human Form stands at 5 foot 8 inches.
Scent: pine, saltwater
Eye Color: gray
Family: Magnet (younger brother), Radeon (father), Richter (cousin), Kinsha (cousin), Spade (nephew), Devi (niece), Seed (as close as a brother), Oisín (adopted son), Midnight (daughter)
Mate: Zergarikiaka ♥
Personality: energetic/high endurance, outgoing (willing to meet new deer/people)
Habits/Quirks: bows to the dragonflies; speaks to them, though sometimes he wishes he couldn't understand their gossip
Sleeping Spot: the dragonfly swarm at the pond

Name: Magnet
Name Origin: "magnets don't always attract" A fitting way to describe him. But mainly from my thinking his picto looked like it had two "U" magnets facing each other.
Nickname: 'Net (self-explanatory)
Birthday: March 26 (Aries)
Gender/Sex: male
Species: TEF red deer/normal red deer
Appearance: The golden butterfly pelt, real deer mask, and real deer antlers. Rarely ever switches anything, but sometimes likes the default antlers. (Note: His "natural" look is the default deer "set".) Human Form stands at 6 foot 1 inch.
Scent: wheat, saltwater
Eye Color: gray
Family: Scape (older brother), Radeon (father), Richter (cousin), Kinsha (cousin), Spade (son), Devi (daughter), Oisín (adopted nephew), Midnight (niece)
Mate: Aspen ♥
Personality: calm, observant, independent but not shy
Habits/Quirks: bows to the dragonflies; "wake up routine" that's too long to describe; speaks with the dragonflies on occasion, though mostly just listens to/filters their chatter
Sleeping Spot: the dragonfly swarm at the pond, or "Red Hill"
back to top





*


Name: Spade
Name Origin: Martisol called Scape Spade by accident, and I liked the name so much it got used
Birthday: November 30 (Sagittarius)
Gender/Sex: male
Species: TEF red deer/normal red deer from Magnet. Unsure of Aspen's species.
Appearance: Secretary bird pelt, real deer mask, and kirin antlers. (NOTE: When drawn, the kirin antlers should curve forward like a ram's.) Human Form stands at 5 foot 11 inches (still growing).
Scent: coconut, cedar
Eye Color: gray
(Immediate) Family: [Half Dragonfly Deer, Half Magpie(?) Deer] Magnet (father), Aspen (mother), Devi (younger twin sister) [there are way too many to list everyone]
Mate/Crush: was dating Faytha, but she's gone missing and may not be coming back
Personality: shy but would like to make friends, observant, likes to think he's strong from all the training he does but isn't overly confident
Habits/Quirks: stutters a bit when nervous or feeling awkward, like his tongue trips over the words; intrigued by and speaks with the dragonflies; has taken to training himself to make himself stronger (running, practicing sparring using a certain stump, jumping things like they're hurdles, etc.); always slows down to watch the butterflies if he's passing through a patch of purple flowers
Sleeping Spot: by the stump he uses for training

Name: Richter (aka 49)
Name Origin: "4.9 on the Richter scale"
Nickname: Rich' (Pronounced "rick".)
Birthday: May 9 (Taurus)
Gender/Sex: female
Species: TEF red deer/TEF shika deer
Appearance: The great argus pelt, peacock antlers, and real deer mask. (Note: Aside from the mask, this is her "natural" look.) Human Form stands at 5 foot 4 inches.
Scent: pineapple, rain
Eye Color: sky blue
Family: Kinsha (younger twin brother), Scape (cousin), Magnet (cousin), Radeon (uncle), Spade (cousin of sorts), Devi (cousin of sorts), Oisín (cousin of sorts), Midnight (cousin of sorts)
Mate: "...do I need one?"
Personality: highly energetic, often has trouble focusing on one thing for too long (what is this "attention span" you speak of?), short temper, trouble making friends
Habits/Quirks: "cast and run"; circling for the heck of it; circling trees when bored; "attacking" the dragonflies or butterflies
Sleeping Spot: the Ruins
back to top





*


Name: Kinsha (Pronounced "keen-shah". Japanese for "gold dust" or "gold sand".)
Name Origin: He's loosely based off a character by the same name who has blond hair.
Nickname: Kin (pronounced how it looks or "keen"), Kinshi (only Richter calls him this), Kin-kun (only Silvery calls him this)
Birthday: May 9 (Taurus)
Gender/Sex: male
Species: TEF red deer/TEF shika deer
Appearance: The golden butterfly pelt, orca mask, and butterfly antlers. Human Form stands at 5 foot 5 inches.
Scent: banana, sawdust
Eye Color: sky blue
Family: Richter (older twin sister), Radeon (uncle), Scape (cousin), Magnet (cousin), Spade (cousin of sorts), Devi (cousin of sorts), Toukan (as close as a brother), Suiren (as close as a sister), Oisín (cousin of sorts), Midnight (cousin of sorts)
Mate: ...we'll see
Personality: skittish/somewhat jumpy, socially awkward/doesn't know how to make friends
Habits/Quirks: "cast and run" on the rare "mischief day"; trying to be a ninja and usually failing (spying unnoticed, sneaking up on others, "ninja-walking"/air-walking)
Sleeping Spot: the Ruins
back to top





*


Name: Toukan (Pronounced "toh-kahn" [the "toh" is drawn out due to the "u" after the "o"]. Japanese for "frost".)
Name Origin: He's loosely based off a character that is a pale ice horse demon.
Nickname: Touk (pronounced "toke")
Birthday: December 22 (Capricorn)
Gender/Sex: male
Species: Finnish forest reindeer/Peary caribou
Appearance: A normal gray reindeer, but with a heavily scarred leg that gives him a limp and trouble on days with bad weather. (Note: In-Forest, he wears the swan pelt, real deer mask, and real deer antlers.) Human Form stands at 6 feet.
Scent: vanilla, mint
Eye Color: ice blue
Family: Dasher (father; Finnish forest reindeer; RIP), Snowflake (mother; Peary caribou; whereabouts unknown), Tougen/Tundra (brother) Kinsha (adopted brother), Suiren (adopted sister), Ourania (adopted sister)
Mate: Kylar ♥
Personality: calm but has his silly moments around close friends, social but can be independent, patient
Habits/Quirks: walks with a limp (shown through alternating between "traveling speeds"); will sometimes go "spiriting" (his spirit will run around outside his body; most cannot see him in this form, unless they're sensitive to the paranormal [e.g. Lorak], or some strange phenomenon takes place); may be seen wearing the nightfall pelt on occasion (if it's cast on him), often stops to munch on some mint
Sleeping Spot: the two small trees in a sunbeam near the Old Oak, any other spot that's appealing
Extra Note: As Toukan is a normal reindeer (for the most part), he sheds his antlers every year. They should drop sometime in early winter, then slowly regrow until they're at full size again in the spring (I'm cheating a bit here, but hey, TEF has magic). Antler regrowth cycle as shown in-Forest: Doe/Noh > Orca > Beluga > Barn Owl > Default > Real Deer

Name: Tougen (Pronounced "toh-genn" [the "toh" is drawn out due to the "u" after the "o"]. Japanese for "tundra". Refers to himself as "Tundra" to most and prefers to be called this.)
Name Origin: Wanted something similar to "Toukan"
Nickname: technically "Tundra" is, otherwise no official nicknames
Birthday: March 18 (Pisces)
Gender/Sex: male
Species: Finnish forest reindeer/Peary caribou
Appearance: A light tan reindeer with darker mask, back patch, and stockings. Markings a cross between his two sub-species. Right front hoof is "pigeon-toed", or turned inward. Born like this. (Note: In-Forest, he wears the brown and tan pelt, real deer mask, and real deer antlers.) Human form (needs human artwork) stands at 5 feet 10 inches.
Scent: vanilla, cinnamon
Eye Color: ice blue
Family: Dasher (father; Finnish forest reindeer; RIP), Snowflake (mother; Peary caribou; whereabouts unknown), Toukan (brother)
Mate: none (we'll...see?)
Personality: low confidence, craves social interaction though unsure how to go about it
Habits/Quirks: occasionally stumbles due to his turned hoof
Sleeping Spot: under a weeping willow at the high side of the pond; feels a sense of security here due to the bit of cover it provides
Extra Note: As Tundra is a normal reindeer (for the most part), he sheds his antlers every year. They should drop sometime in early winter, then slowly regrow until they're at full size again in the spring (I'm cheating a bit here, but hey, TEF has magic). Antler regrowth cycle as shown in-Forest: Doe/Noh > Orca > Beluga > Golden Butterfly > Default > Real Deer

*


Name: Suiren (Pronounced "soo-e-ren". Japanese for "water lily".)
Name Origin: She's loosely based off a character that was part praying mantis demon.
Nickname: Sui (Pronounced "soo-e". If anyone outside of family and good friends calls her this, they should expect a death glare.)
Birthday: October 27 (Scorpio)
Gender/Sex: female
Species: TEF deer. Really a human in deer form.
Appearance: Kirin pelt, Forest Spirit mask, secretary bird antlers ("praying mantis" set). Human Form stands at 5 feet 9 inches.
Scent: lily, bamboo
Eye Color: dark brown
Family: Kinsha (as close as a brother), Toukan (considers him her little brother)

Habits/Quirks: you might find her practicing the deer version of her family's martial arts style
Sleeping Spot: the Ruins

Name: Radeon
Name Origin: I wanted a name that sounded "red" and that was the first word that came to mind. I later realized I named him after a graphics card. Guess it's because of the logo color.
Nickname: His title? ("The Crimson Drifter".) Hardly called by this anymore, as he hardly wears the red pelt now.
Birthday: May 20 (Taurus)
Gender/Sex: male
Species: TEF red deer
Appearance: The secretary bird pelt and default antlers. Usually wears poppies. (Note: The pelt has a red tinge to the gray. Also has red bangs and a goatee, gray-streaked with age.) Human Form stands at 5 foot 10 inches.
Scent: lavender, poppies
Eye Color: moss/gray-green
Family: Scape (son), Magnet (son), Richter (niece), Kinsha (nephew), Spade (grandson), Devi (granddaughter), Oisín (adopted grandson), Midnight (granddaughter)
Mate: none; no interest
Personality: calm, observant, peace-loving (dude's like a hippie)
Habits/Quirks: always bows to the dragonflies, converses with them about anything important or interesting going on, often filtering out unneeded gossip; bows to the Crying Idol; his bows are no longer as deep due to joint pain (shown with bow + confused)
Sleeping Spot: the Crying Idol
back to top





*


Name: Blue
Name Origin: As a dragonfly, he had blue wings. He introduced himself to fawn-Scape as "Blue", most likely due to his coloration. It's unknown if this is his real name.
Nickname: His name is too short to shorten.
Birthday (technically rebirthday): August 29 (Virgo)
Gender/Sex: male
Species: TEF mini-deer (unknown)
Appearance: The nightfall pelt, golden butterfly mask, and magpie antlers. (Note: When I draw him, the pelt is a lighter blue, and he has gold markings on his sides that look like a dragonfly symbol, similar to his picto. Played as a mini-deer due to his small size; if only masks affected their voices...) Human Form stands at 5 foot 2 inches.
Scent: caramel, pondwater
Eye Color: bright green
Family: As a dragonfly, Radeon was like a good friend, and he was like an uncle or older brother to fawn-Scape. But as a deer, he's more like a good family friend, or the eccentric "uncle" you only know because they're best friends with your parents.
Mate: none. This is a strange subject for him, as he's had dragonfly mates in his past life. It is questionable what his preference is/would be as a deer.
Personality: optimistic most of the time; social and outgoing, but doesn't often stay in one group before hopping off to the next
Habits/Quirks: air-sits or sits in trees to rest if he can; hops, often while humming; bows to and speaks with the dragonflies as he once was one
Sleeping Spot: a poppy patch on the riverbank

"It's no problem. Sorry if I'm kind of boring, though," he chuckled to himself.

XD Evil map. Hope they add 3rd gen pictos. Finding and clicking hers earlier was tricky. 8|

"Play and talk doesn't always

"Play and talk doesn't always have to be a source of amusement. It was nice to sit here with you and get a glimpse at how lovely this forest is while enjoying your company. You're not boring~ Oh, by the way, if you don't mind me asking what might your name be?"

Ah, yes! Me too. I should have probably connected some kind of link from my account to the picto :x make it less of a hassle for people. Sorry about that.

Toukan nodded in agreement at how the forest could be lovely. Sitting and observing the scenery was something he did often...usually followed by falling asleep. "I'm called Toukan."

Nah, don't worry about it. I managed, and the userpage for the picto had her name and your username, so I figured it out. Laughing out loud

"Toukan... it's been a

"Toukan... it's been a pleasure to meet you. I hope to meet you in the forest again. My name is Joanna."

Ah, buena! (:
At least I remembered to include that information on the account, haha.

--
The fluffy little fawn lay under a small tree, surveying his surrounding almost too solemnly for one his age. He was a bit on the lonely side, but he wasn't willing to show it to others. He was new to this forest, and he was wary of all the strange deer around, but he was starting to warm up to the idea of meeting new friends. This, however, seemed exceedingly difficult at times, and so he sat alone, soaking up the sunshine and watching the deer and other forest creatures go by.

[I haven't done literal RP in

[I haven't done literal RP in awhile, so hopefully this doesn't fail too much...]

It was the way they were sitting that caught his eye. Just sitting, looking around to take in details instead of going up to things to explore. He hardly ever saw fawns doing that, unless they were tired. But this one didn't seem tired.

Toukan stopped his limp-broken walk to the pond - he wasn't really thirsty anyway; it was just something to do before looking for anyone he knew - to debate for a second. Mind made up, the light gray reindeer turned towards the little fawn, sticking to his casual pace - or as casual as one can get when one has a bad leg - so he wouldn't appear threatening.

[sorry, i was busy for a few

[sorry, i was busy for a few days!]

Osiris got to his hooves as the larger deer approached, standing in place and waiting for him to come nearer. Once the Toukan was in front of him, he gave a respectful bow, as always with adult deer, then straightened up and smiled. "Hello," he said softly, tilting his head to the side, "how are you?"

[I figured that. Don't worry

[I figured that. Don't worry about it. Laughing out loud ]

He was a little surprised at how polite this fawn was. Not many would bow first like that. Not wanting to be rude, Toukan returned the bow. "I'm alright," he replied with a nod after carefully straightening back up. "And yourself?"
