Welp, I told you that Zonario was going through a redesign, so here he is! The new and improved (And not copyright infring-tastic) Zonario, everyone's favorite chimera X3 Time for some details and such about him, his new design, and power updates.
(WARNING TEXT WALL INCOMMING)
Height: 6 foot 3 inches
First off, Design:
He has six flowing tails that start at the base of his back and extend outwards. Each tail represents each of the six powers he poses. They are his base red with a creamy yellow tip. He has three fingers on each hand and three toes on each foot, making it difficult for him to carry things but make him perfect with balance, improving his fighting further. He has long silver hair flowing from his head with blue highlights on its tips, with a Jade bead holding his hair together into its poof, ending at his hips. He now wears a black leather collar with no detail, his chest fur is highlighted blue as well, and he has a tribal tattoo upon his arm. Finally, he has two large hand spikes, large claws, and a symbol on the back of his head. (Shown above)
Now onto abilitys:
Fire. He has limited control over fire. Unlike Renard he cannot utilize it in many ways, but he can form fireballs to throw, light his tails on fire to hit people, and finally light his paws on fire to throw powerful punches and light paths in the dark. When Zonario utilizes this ability the tattoo on his left arm turns orange.
Earth/Ground. Zonario has even less ability with this element. He cannot do much with this ability and in order to even fully use it he must pair it with another one of his elements. He can create small fissures and earthquakes. A bonus that comes with this ability is a little added strength when he is on the ground as he harnesses energy, and he can sense motions and distinguish between other noises to pinpoint a friend or enemy. On a few occasions he has coupled it with another ability to terraform a large underground complex, which he owns and lives in. When using this power his tattoo will turn brown
Steel. Steel is an element he uses almost for the sole purpose of transportation and defense. He uses this ability coupled with Ground in order to create fissures that he can fully control. When being attacked by a large group or protecting someone he will dive to the ground and use his six tails to create a steel barrier around himself. He also will turn his tails to steel and bash them into the ground to give himself a large boost into the air, and using his Psychic abilitys to gently levitate down, allowing a good distance of gliding. When using this power his tattoo will turn a steely gray
Psychic. Psychic is one of Zonario's more powerful abilities he uses. He is able to lift objects, hold enemies still, and if in direct contact can even read minds. However, there are a few downsides. Using this power uses his own energy, and reading minds allows his target to read his mind as well if they realize that they have control as well. He uses this power alone and can also heal other creatures and himself using Recovery, but this drains his energy directly, and if he uses it too much he can become dizzy, loose vision, or even go into a coma. However if he just heals himself the energy always flows back to himself so he doesn't need as much rest. When using this ability his tattoo will turn a lightish pink.
Dark. Dark is a lesser used but more devastating power of Zonario's. Unlike his Psychic, this cannot be paired with anything else. He uses it when enraged and endows his fists with a dark aura, causing him to nearly kill his opponent if he is not careful. When he is in this form he reverts back to a state called "Lutailark" in which he gains a second personality that is more insane and obsessed with winning by murdering his opponent. He refrains from using this ability at all times, but he can control it in small doses, like a simple punch or a quick blast from his palms. When he uses this ability his tattoo turns a dark purple
Fighting. Zonarios final and predominant skill which is almost always his main. This is the base of his powers and the only one that works with all of them. This is the power he was born with and is always using it, draining nothing from him, only requiring his natural strength, wisdom, and balance. This is his idle form basically, and when in it his tattoo is black, like a good portion of him.
Strengths. Zonario is a strong character, being able to use 6 different abilitys and keep a cool head about it, even when he is in his fire form. Being a mixture of three species (An artificially made Chimera) he shares traits with all of them, hence where his powers come from. He is very intelligent and good at forming strategies. Because of years of abuse, both verbal and physical he has become a tougher character, being able to take more than the average fur. However, he has also become more understanding and kind to those he knows share what he shared. His long hair and six tails allow him to comfort those who need it, and are practically portable sleep supplies when he is on a quest or just needs to make a quick camp.
Weaknesses: Zonario may be strong but that doesn't make him invincible, not by a long shot. To start out with his most used skill besides fighting drains him of his own energy to use. After a good amount of using psychic he usually has to rest to regain his strength, especially if he heals a deep gash or a cut artery. Since he is a chimera he has a focal point that stores his power, which is the symbol on the back of his head, under his flowing hair. If this point is struck it causes immense pain, and he loses his powers for a short time, making him resort to only bare fist fighting. However if struck hard enough he could pass out or even die. He has a tribal marking on his left arm to distract opponents from his head, as they would suspect the point to be there since it changes colors with his moves, and seems like a normal placement, however this is just a trick of his. Also, Zonario's mind isn't exactly the most stable thing, so a traumatic experience could easily scar him. But since he is more toughened to the world he takes a good bit to scar.
And finally, character traits and quirks:
Zonario as a character is a silent and aloof one. That is until someone approaches him and gets him to talk and be friendly, in which case he is open and stern. He shares a good deal about himself, but only to those he trusts, and he only acts childish around Renard or his close friends he meets along his journeys. He acts standoffish to newcomers but is always happy to welcome a new friend to his small following. Because of his high power usage he bears upon himself, he can get stressed out or just plain tired, so he will usually rest in his Boxing Ring of a bed and eat his "Special Medicinal Berries" which are really just fermented berries he uses to get slightly intoxicated to rest for a while. When he shares a bond with someone he will never break it and give his life to protect them, and when it comes to children he becomes a father figure.
Sorry for such a text wall, this is mainly for people who want to know a bit about him when I RP, or just special things for art.
