Character Design~

Protagonist: Ryuma (Hyenabear)
Antagonist: Leroy (Lionhound)
When we first had to brainstorm our characters, I wanted to do something with animals and how an animal kingdom would work. So basically what i did is humanize some animals and even made hybrids of them. For example my main protagonist, Ryuma, is a hyena and bear hybrid. It is said that the hyena was meant to be the king of the jungle, with his powerful jaw lock and general strength, but because of its awkward gait and pitiful laugh, he was over ruled by the lion. Though, a lion isn't much of a king as it laze around and his pride does all the work, hunting and protecting. In my story, Ryuma is on a quest to get his rightful place on the throne that his ancestors lost to the lions. Antagonist, Leroy is a lion and hound (specifically a doberman) mix and he finds out the true royal blood is alive (Ryuma) and is on his own quest to have him gone so he can keep his throne. The environment is just like the general wild jungles and mountains, but they are divided. One landmass would just be a jungle, another a rainforrest, each having their own inhabitants specifically from there. On Ryuma's quest, he is joined by some company from the snowy mountains, Koda and her younger brother Charlie. Ryuma even bumps into Leroy from time to time and travels with him for awhile. Leroy never knew he was next to his target the whole time. The two boys usually argue and are always competitive (mostly to impress Koda, but she does not care). I wanted character's clothing to be tribal yet a bit modern. It also depends where they are from. "Magic" is also included in my story. More like elemental powers. For example, Koda can create ice and control icy wind, and Leroy can summon fire from his hands. This project is absolute my favorite.
Company: Koda (Wolfbear)
Company: Charlie (Wolfshark)
