Savior Reference by Wolvekit Savior Reference by Wolvekit
My character for the OCT :iconchernobyl-curs:, which I just heard about today. xD I hope I have enough time to complete a decent audition.

Name: Savior (self-given), Vsevolod (birth); will always introduce self as 'Savior', so only mind-readers will know about his birth name
Breed Base: Golden Irish (Irish Setter/Golden Retriever)
Age: 6 years
Gender: male
Abilities: n/a
Strengths: He is surprisingly flexible, has a strong sense of balance, and enjoys breaking bones with his teeth.
Weaknesses: He has weak lungs, low stamina, weak hips/back legs, and a tendency to meet frontal assaults with his shoulders.
Personality: Imagine your stereotypical sleazy, self-interested, power hungry corporate CEO with deceptive charm and slight psychopathic tendencies. That's him in dog form. EDIT: He thinks he's a master manipulator of mind games but really his methods are more like schoolyard bullying than anything else.
History: The only important thing is that he usually has a couple of big, dumb, thug-like lackeys that follow him around. However, when he enters Pripyat, he is alone. EDIT: I've decided to add a bit now that he's a more fleshed out character. Savior has lived with quite a few different humans over his years, usually using their care to heal from injuries sustained from feral life. He leaves/escapes whenever it is convenient and has been microchipped before, but he had another dog get it out of his neck, which is now healed over completely (the scar is hidden by his neck fur).
Likes: Being the boss, how awesome and brilliant he is, food.
Dislikes: Other people telling him what to do, surprises, bad-smelling things and places.
Other: I haven't decided how ~evil~ he is going to be yet, we'll see how that develops. He will straight up kill and maim combatants though and will kill pups, pregnant bitches, and the elderly if he feels it to be necessary. I might take him further than that, if I feel up to it. x) I guess his goal is to take over Pripyat... or something. EDIT: Furthermore, he is pretty old for a feral dog and is not particularly energetic, that combined with his poor lungs and weak hips means he won't run unless he has to. Experience has also given him pretty decent deductive capabilities.
Fighting Methods: "Old age and treachery will defeat youth and skill" is a good proverb to describe his fighting tendencies. He will use his front paws to strike as well as his teeth, which resemble slaps or palm strikes since worn down dog claws don't really do much damage. He's taken a lot of attacks to the face and shoulders so mentally he wouldn't be fazed much if he got hit there. The reason he gets hit there so much is that unlike most dogs, he doesn't dodge attacks to his throat, preferring to move and put his face/shoulder/leg in the way. That way he can counterattack quickly while his opponent is attacking. Oddly enough, he might be worse at fighting a single highly athletic/skilled/experienced opponent than a group of fighters. He's traveled through other pack's territories quite often, and so has honed his spatial intelligence and ability to use the chaos of a group fight to his advantage. He also does not have a "grip and crush" kind of bite, he tends to bite, let go, then bite again.

Oh, and he's a little over 2 feet at the withers, for reference.

~FEEL FREE TO MAKE HIM AS VILLAINOUS AS YOU PLEASE~

:D

I have a song that I think corresponds with Savior perfectly.

Whoa that's an awesome song. Thanks for bringing it by. I'm gonna have to think a bit on how it fits Sav (besides the obvious, I mean). 8D

It sings about how he's NOT a savior XD

Hmmm yes. That intent fits perfectly, but how Savior the dog and the 'Savior' in the song are not actual saviors is a bit different. :U

I love the drums though. xD

Hello. I was planning on making Ronnie ask Savior about something in my Round 1 entry. Is there anything important I need to note, like how he talks or whether he'd actually help or just lie?

8DDD Yay character interaction!!!

Ummm... he sticks to your standard polite and civil conversation with occasional big words thrown in unless he is mad at you, then he gets pissy (like most people xD). Other than that, he'd actually be helpful unless it helps him to not be helpful. :U

So really, if you need a character that's helpful in a general sort of way, he works. And if you need a character be a lying douchebag because he's got an ulterior motive, he'd also work. xD At the moment his character isn't really set yet, it'll develop more as we go~

I AM ALREADY EXCITED. :D

Well, mostly he just calls her "dear", "lassy" and "honey". And answers her questions in a very vague, moderately-unhelpful way. c:

And refers to her sexual life, oh god.

Hahaha that's awesome xDDD

Hmmm... I don't think he's much of a nicknamer (unlike Speakeasy xD) so he'd more likely use "Miss", her name if he knows it, or slightly more sarcastically "Lady". But the vague, moderately-unhelpful help sounds perfect!

lololol that's wonderful Sav, so classy~

Well, he wouldn't ever know her name, so I'll use "Miss". And he's being a moderate pervert, so I want all of your "okays" before I have him be like that.. :iconlooolplz:

Hmmm... at this point he's more focused on food than sex, and pervy!creepy isn't generally his modus operandi but being a perv just to be a dick is right up his alley. xD

So I suppose he's hungry and irritated and if she's not particularly nice he'd totally take it out on her that way. That'd work! 8DDD

Haha, thank you! :D

I just read through your auditions and it surprised me because I think Sav would totally like Speakeasy. :O I was like 'holy balls, a dog that he'd actually be willing to be friends with!!1!one' (...or fuck buddies, Sav doesn't really care.) That is, if Speaks is willing to put up with Savior's ridiculous sleazy/dickish behavior.

They'd be an interesting pair to say the least, for better or worse. Friends, friends with benefits, acquaintances with benefits, any would be fine with her. Long as old Sav doesn't mind the whole intersexual thing, I'm sure they'd find ways to get along. And by get along I mean find a dark alley somewhere. And by find a dark alley I mean have sex.

...SOUNDS LIKE A PLAN.

And no, I can't see Sav caring too much about the whole intersex thing. He'd be way more fascinated by that black bile she spits up <= never seen nothin' like that before.

Oh look, it's the polar opposite of Vendel 8D
I really like this guy. It's good to see more evil characters in the tournament.
I wonder how him and my character Drago would get along. They seem to be some similarities between them when it comes to personality, though I think Savior is worse! 8D

Haha, yep! And I think we'll get to see just how polar opposite he is in the audition~

Yay more villains! I bet they'd get along as well as villains usually do, as in pretend to like each other until one of them gets the upper hand... or at least that's what Sav would do. Pleasantries and then backstabbing. xD

So he's a freaking bamf I hope you're aware. Like, wow. Love him.

He'd scare the jeebus outta little Adele though ._. couldn't imagine how that would fare.

GOOD LUCK ON YOUR AUDITION, I'd really like to see him in the tourney! :dummy:

Haha, thank you for stroking Sav's ego! (not that he needed it...)

Taking the creepy psycho route, Savior would totally creep on Adele, attempt to coerce her into mindless loyalty, and eat her if he got really hungry while pretending to be a well-bred charming bastard. :\

On a more comedic note, they'd probably spend a lot of time bickering over who was in charge. xD

Good luck on yours too! Your characters are delightful~

Haha, that meeting would be so very very awkward. Sav might just be blasphemous enough to make Vendal resort to violence...

Dude, your character is pretty awesome, I've no idea how Sav would react to a partly invisible dog. xD

Alright, we've reviewed your reference and everything looks nice and balanced. However, we're going to have to ask that you shorten Savior up some. We like for the character heights to be accurate to their breeds. A few inches might not seem like much for a human but it's a fairly big difference in a dog. Male goldens range from 23-24 inches at the withers, and Irish setters range from 25-27 inches. A mix of the two would be between the two heights, not well above them.
