Chomp by RuckusRufus Chomp by RuckusRufus
My character for :iconchernobyl-curs:! :la:

Name: Chomp

Breed Base: Burmese mountain dog, border collie

Age: 2

Gender: Male

Abilities: His bad eye has the ability to transfix opponents if they stare into it, causing them to feel dizzy and lightheaded, and temporarily become an easy target, like a deer caught in headlights. The effect only lasts for a few seconds.

Strengths: :bulletblack: His strong jaws and teeth inherited from his Burmese mountain dog genes can easy deliver deadly wounds. :bulletblack: His thick fur around his neck and stomach help protect him against opponent's teeth. :bulletblack: Thanks to his border collie genes he is relatively quick despite his size.

Weaknesses: :bulletblack: He can't see from his right eye, so he is prone to attacks from the right. :bulletblack: Although his thick fur helps protect him, it can easily overheat him when fighting or performing any strenuous activity, causing him to feel sluggish and dizzy. :bulletblack: He has poor endurance - after only a short amount of time fighting he begins to loose energy. :bulletblack: He has breathing issues which can cause him to have coughing fits, making him vulnerable for a large amount of time until he can recover.

Personality Flaws: He tends to underestimate opponents.

Personality: He is outgoing and a little strange, constantly talking and asking questions. He is generally cheery and optimistic and loves to be around other dogs. He's naturally inquisitive and playful, but has a bit of an incendiary temperament, and can easily get violent. Some might consider him bipolar; he can be all skippy and jolly one moment, then try to tear your throat out the next. Because of this and his endless stream of chatter, he tends to be a bit of an outcast. Although it wouldn't seem so at first, in a strange way, he is quite intelligent. :]

History: (beware the cheesiness xD) Chomp used to have an owner who lived just outside of Chernobyl, but he was an irresponsible misanthrope and he didn't take good care of his pets. :l When Chomp was young he and Lytett (his orange kitty friend : D) wandered out into the streets, their careless owner not bothering to make sure they were inside before locking up for the night. They stumbled into the neighbor's yard, not aware of the danger that lurked there, and had an unfortunate run in with the neighbor's rottweiler. They escaped, but not without injury - Chomp was blind in his right eye and Lytett received a permanent limp in her back right leg. They fled and soon encountered the abandoned factory. As Chomp grew bigger, Lytett began to ride on his back so she wouldn't have to take forever limping everywhere. xD His owner called him Chomp because he loved to chew on pretty much anything that was lying around, and the name stuck.

Likes: Food, dogs who don't get annoyed by him

Dislikes: rottweilers, humans

Other: He chews and gnaws on anything he can find to keep his teeth sharp and efficient. He also just enjoys doing it, it's kind of a habit. xD He also tends to make up random words on the spot and uses weird/nonsensical expressions like 'wholly frigglebits' or something along those lines.

Lytett -

Age: 2

Gender: female

abilities: none

Personality: She doesn't let her lame leg stop her from being cheery and optimistic. She's usually relatively quiet compared to Chomp, but like him she's got a fiery temper and she's not afraid to be rude. She's also very stubborn. She's kind of like Chomp's conscience, and he almost always listens to her; she's clever and always thinks things through. She helps calm him when he gets all rage-mode-ish, and without her he looses control of himself a lot easier.

Extra: limp in back right leg

Audition shall come soon!! : D If there's anything about his strengths/weaknesses or whatever that you think could use tweaking, please tell me. :3

He's great, hehe!
I'll probably have him and his cat cameo in my audition just so my dog (Viceroy)'s cat (Kalyna) can meet Lytett :3

It's a shame that cat couldn't have been called Chain. Then it'd be Chain and Chomp .

Welcome to Chernobyl Curs!

I have to say, his name made me giggle because I once knew a dog named 'Munch' XD

Very cool! His personality is great and his design is nice and concise~
Best of luck to you, comrade :tea:

Alright, here's our review.

Including the ability, he has six strengths. However, he only has four weaknesses to counter them. You'll need to either remove two strengths or add two weaknesses in order for him to come into balance. Also, his overheating weakness needs a bit of clarification. Would he overheat easily when undergoing strenuous activity, or just in hot environments? Keep in mind the tournament takes place in the Ukraine in late autumn, so it's pretty cold.

Also, we need bio information for Lytett. You don't need the abilities, strengths, and weaknesses since she isn't fighting, but we do need the rest of the information so your opponents have some information to go on when featuring her.
