Full name: Beth Alcino, formally called ‘Bhura’
Title: (Well she’s a pet, so I don’t think she would need one.)
Age: Roughly the equivalent of 48-ish
Occupation: Beth doesn’t have one, but I suppose she can be thought of like a ‘sentry’ since she’s meant to be like a watchdog.
Place of work: Her home?
Current town of residence: Hmm, I haven’t really planned this out since I don’t know much about Brazil. I should look into this, though partly thinking of making fictional places.
Hometown: Not specified, but she’s from a breeding farm from a village in Punjab, which is in north India.
General size: Beth’s breed, the Java Aseels are tall birds due their long legs. Her height is around 24 inches, she weighs around 4 kilograms. She’s rather medium-ish for an Aseel.
Head and face shape: Her head is triangular/tear shaped from the side. Her face from the front is roundish. Her eye ‘ridges’ are rather prominent. She has a small cockscorb.
Hair: In this case, her feathers: Her wings, tail and head feathers are a darker shade of brown than the rest of her. She has some feathers than ‘droop’ down a little on either side of her cockscorb. There are also some feathers that stick out along the sides of her head like sideburns.
Eyes/Eyebrows: Beth’s eyes are brown, almost coffee colored. She has rather thick eyelashes. No eyebrows here, but she has really prominent eye ‘ridges’ which stand out and overshadow her eyes.
Nose: Eh, normal size I guess.
Mouth: Beak, in this case: Short, rather small but pointed. Slight gray with a faint beige tint to it.
Skintone: Well, her face is red. Her scaled feet are pale beige.
Bone structure: Lean but sturdy. Long legs and pointed feet.
Physical build/fitness: She’s aging and isn’t as fit or healthy as she once was. Her build is lean but sturdy though she probably can’t withstand as much damage as in her younger years. Beth has long legs and can appear very tall when she gets into an upright pose. She has a leg injury in her left leg which causes her to favor her right side more. Her toes are long, pointed and deadly. Because of her breed, she is much taller than the usual neighborhood chickens so she can be considered as a large hen.
Posture: Usually a docile, firm posture with a sloping back, lowered tail and head straight. Sometimes tucking her injured leg up.
Voice: Her voice is deep and sounds authoritative, though she is usually soft spoken when it comes to her son, Melanie and Inacio. When she does speak to other birds, it’s usually her spitting barbed words to intimidate and frighten them off from her territory. Her voice can become menacing and even quite creepy with her accent. She does have a Punjabi accent but it’s toned down considerably since she doesn’t live in India anymore. It comes up when she swears in Hindi.
Clothing: She’s a bird so…
…eh, I guess the Alcino family’s kids would’ve tried to stuff her into some stupid clothing or whatever,
Beth: But dhat surely won’t count, no?
Story: Can be found here: shadowdagger.deviantart.com/ar…
Relationship to characters: She is Inacio’s foster mother/guide/advisor. They are very close. She also knows of Novia and is content enough with her.
Other significant connections: She has old ties with Novia’s idol, Raider, and an unrevealed character that has some influence over Santiago. She is Bento’s blood mother, Melanie’s foster mother. She is the daughter of the former ‘King’ of her original farm, though this really isn’t that significant.
Impression on other characters: Folk usually get nervous around her at first, being as she is very headstrong and isn’t shy about making sarcastic remarks. Beth also inspects and sizes up others before actually speaking to them. Then again, she doesn’t speak much and only few birds actually befriend her.
She also likes scaring chicks with old fighting lore from her life in foreign lands as well as the actual fights from her life.
Relevant skills: Beth is unsurprisingly good at intimidating others. Her hearing is very sharp, as her life depended on being alert. She can fight like all fighter chickens do, but the style is based on speed as well as brute strength. Obviously, she reads and inspects her opponents for weaknesses well which has benefitted her when it comes to assessing others, though this is mostly limited to birds.
Relevant or important possessions: None.
Reason for introduction: [Why is he/she in this story?]
I liked the idea of a cockfighter bird character who escapes that brutal life. Brainstorming lead to the creation of Bento, who rejects it and favors using a slingshot instead. She was actually just a background character, just ‘Bento’s mom’ but eventually became the ‘parent substitute’ character for Inacio and Melanie. She is also pretty much the reason Bento is still alive and why he exists anyway.
Method of introduction: [How is he introduced, where, why, and to whom? How do the other characters react to his coming into the story?]
She is introduced to Melanie and Inacio as a ‘foreigner’ bird from a strange land that was lucky enough to find a safe haven from the streets of Brazil. She is scary and bizarre at first, but admirable and worthy of respect.
Method of departure: Hmm… well she remains at the home of the Alcino family with her son and Melanie, while Inacio shifts into the Spix’s macaw flock (I think that’s already obvious and not spoilerish). As much they aren’t completely defenseless, the jungle just isn’t their place.
Idiosyncrasies (Verbal): Her accent isn’t as prominent but she tends to stress on the sounds ‘d’ and ‘r’, and sometimes ‘s’. She drawls out ‘Ey’ to call someone’s attention.
Idiosyncrasies (Physical): She limps after an amount of exertion as the deep scar on her leg never really healed completely. Wiggles her brows to signal curiosity at times.
Personality keywords: Blunt and forthright with what she thinks, she isn't always angry or scary though she does seem that way. Cunning and headstrong. Concerned and advises her kids or friends. Territorial.
Character keywords: Proud and not in the least bit submissive, protective, doesn’t deal with flights of fantasy. She is optimistic, learns from experience and trustworthy.
This was actually more difficult than I expected. I know where the faults are, with the character's location and speech quirks. I don't have a clear idea on the difference of personality and character, I've probably switched something up .
