Character design commission for the one and only kuiperfrog. Thanks for commissioning me!! This was super fun to do. I love unusual pairs/teams. This was definitely a unique concept.
I’d be pretty terrified if a snake came out of someone’s mouth.
I always wanted to do a Zoroark character but I had problems here and there. Then I saw a manga called Doubutsu no Kuni (Animal Country). In it, there was a ninja weasel who hid several snakes in his stomach and regurgitated them when necessary (For their poisons, etc).
From that concept, I started thinking about this Zoroark… I still don’t have names yet, sorry!
She’s a female, and she’s practically a shinobi in training. She rarely makes use of her illusions, and instead goes in and out with hit and run techniques. Her partner is a Snivy (Male or Female, I don’t know, sorry again), who hides inside the Zoroark’s belly to be used as a secret weapon, or for recon/small spaces if she needs be. While inside her belly, he can assist her by slithering out Vine Whip from her mouth to tie down an opponent, or use Leech Seed by having her spit out the seeds and enveloping the enemy with them, healing both her and the Snivy.
While the Snivy can easily slither in and out of her stomach (Sometimes happens to her unexpectedly, even in the middle of conversations), the Zoroark needs to remember that her stomach is occupied by him… which she sort of forgets from time to time. Eating meals with him inside is rude and he greatly dislikes that…
Another thing to note is that the Zoroark, while mild-mannered, has a sort of bloodlust whenever she is harmed or at the sight of much blood. When that happens, she’s consumed by a ravenous hunger to main, destroy, rip & tear whoever she’s fighting and devour it. This is also kind of a reason why the Snivy gets stuck in a pickle while inside her stomach at times, and would like it if she can control that aspect of hers.
There’s more stuff to cover about her, such as that if she’s pushed to the edge, she uses her illusory powers to transform her to a beastly figure… which can actually affect reality if it can consume the enemy in fear (Which will help her consume her enemy).
There’s more to write about, but this is all I have for now. I can take name suggestions for the both of them, if you want to contribute!
