Woo hoo, finally got a decent-looking reference sheet for Echo! At least, more organized than THAT OTHER ONE-
Echo is an oriental cat, so he's a little taller than a normal one! *^*
Echo enjoys walking through the woods, especially when it's fall, He loves spending time with his good friend Ashe, (link to her ref. sheet will be up soon) he likes swimming (even if he's a cat..) and he really fancies traveling (even if he can't do it often).
Echo tries to adapt well to bad situations, offering optimistic thinking and comedic relief. But with all likes comes dislikes too. Echo may seem a bit quiet at first, but cross the line and he'll be a raging blizzard of fur. He doesn't like being pressured into bad situations either. He'd do anything to defend his friends if any of them were being mistreated. But over all Echo's dislikes, he absolutely loathes being called stupid. Even though he might be.. a LITTLE foolish. He runs into situations without thinking, and most of the time risks hurting himself :')
Even if he tries to be calm and collected, Echo still likes to get in trouble every once and a while. He's a bit of a rule-breaker, and is terrible in serious situations. He may seem chilled out in an awkward moment, for example being left alone with new people, but he most likely has no idea what he's doing. Echo is very energetic, but that's not always a good thing, considering he's always tripping over himself.
Powers/magic: Basic healing spells, "heat bite"(basically his teeth reach extremely high levels of heat, which comes in handy for fighting) and can summon small clearish-blue shields to protect himself.
If you're wondering about the marks:
Echo's early years were spent in a colony/group of all sorts of forest animals, cats being the smallest. Every time some sort of spell was learned, the animal who did it would earn a mark. There isn't that much to his past, but I'm still experimenting a few ideas. I started writing about it, but probably won't post it here.
THINGS TO LOOK OUT FOR WHEN DRAWING OR DISCUSSING ECHO
• As said before, Echo is an oriental. His snout along with his legs and tail are a bit longer/skinnier than a normal cat's!
•Echo's tail is always curled! *_*
• The three blue diamonds only show when he's using some sort of magic or powers.
• I rarely draw him in an anthropomorphic form, but if he had one, his design/mark placement would be the same.
•Don't forget the fact that Echo is basically a klutz.
Smol side note; I'll try to get the rest of the references done ASAP.. I still have to do something in time for Valentine's Day >~<
