CC: Grid 'n Freyja by EquusEquidae CC: Grid 'n Freyja by EquusEquidae
I know, I know, I'm getting myself caught up in another group, but the others aren't working out so now I'm trying something I might be better at :]

This is for: :iconchernobyl-curs:
Name:Grid (Old Norse Frost Giant, "Peace")
Breed Base: Bullmastiff/English Mastiff
Age: 3 years
Gender: Female
Height: 25 inches (63.5cm)
Weight: 115lbs (52 kg)
Abilities: n/a
:bulletgreen: High Pain Tolerance- She won't show any sign of being in pain; up until it affects her ability to move.
:bulletgreen: Physical Strength- Whats she lacks in endurance she makes up for with her size and the muscle behind it.
:bulletgreen: Keen Hearing- She is quick to key in on any sound and her ability to hear things has gotten better since she started to go blind.
:bulletred: Elbow dysplasia- Has only early signs, but when she runs too hard and strains herself she gets stiff-legged.
:bulletred: Low Stamina- Because of her size she is quick to tire and having a bad elbow doesn't help either.
:bulletred: Progressive retinal atrophy- she is partially blind in her left eye; she can only see faint outlines and some colors.
Personality: She is very unsure of herself almost to the point of paranoia. Most can never tell because she is quiet and walks proudly so that no one will ever suspect she is so insecure. She is calm in most situations which helps when her closest friend Freyja is quick to become anxious and excited. She is very loyal to her friends, so much so, that even if her friends are in the wrong she will back them up.
History: Well, Grid is not much different than most dogs. She had a brother growing up and the two would fight each other constantly, but in that playful sibling way. He was the one to teach Grid how to fight. When Grid was still young, another older dog started to pick a fight with her brother. Grid couldn't just stand by so she took on the other dog; failing miserably. That other dog was the reason why she currently has no brother, has a scar on her face, and is so insecure about her own abilities.
Likes: Sleeping in the sun is her favorite past time. She also likes collecting odd things she finds like bones, feathers, old pieces of leather and such. She also likes food. ALL kinds, vegetables, beef, chicken, fruits, ANYTHING.
Dislikes: She hates small dogs, or dogs that she could sit on and be able to physically crush them. She hates it when it rains and when her food supply runs out.
Other: Never goes anywhere without Freyja.

Name:Freyja(Old Norse Goddess)
Breed Base: Karelian Bear Dog
Age: 3 1/2 years
Gender: Female
Height: 19 inches (48.3 cm)
Weight: 45lbs (20.4 kg)
Abilities: n/a
:bulletgreen: Thick Undercoat/Guard Hairs- Her outer hair makes her very sleek and hard to hold onto, while her thick under hear keeps her fragile skin and organs safe from cold/heat/ bites.
:bulletgreen: Agility- Since she is light she is quick on her feet and can cover ground alot faster than most dogs her size.
:bulletgreen: Stamina- Can run or fight for long periods of time without tiring.
:bulletred: Fragile Legs- Even though she is well muscled and can leap well, her legs are slender and fragile. One bite or nick could destroy her.
:bulletred: Low Pain Tolerance- Just one bite form another dog can put her out of commission. Thats why she has to use her agility to stay out of the way.
:bulletred:Allergies-She doesn't know the exact cause of her allergies but when it gets really bad her fur starts to fall out and she is constantly sneezing.
Personality: She is very straight forward and will tell you like it is; both a curse and a gift. She can be very impulsive and not think things through before she goes about doing. Her impassivity can make her very anxious and frustrated. She is a very loyal friend but keeps most at a distance. She has a very independent way about her and has no problem doing things on her own.
History: Not much to tell. Her family is a long line of hunting dogs but she has no want to hunt down bears or any other game, except rabbit. She met Grid when they both were around 9 months old.
Likes: Challenges; brain games. A good chase with a fast rabbit (not necessarily to eat it). She loves the smell of rain.
Dislikes: Hot days because of her dense coat. She hates when people beat around the bush or avoid certain things.
Other: n/a

pheww.... thats all for now!!!

Karelian bear dog <3 I was actually going to enter one of those, but I thought they were to wolflike... No I kinda regret I didn't ^^' But hey, good luck with your awesome characters! =D

I think their coloring is what saves them, otherwise they probably would not be allowed. I really wanted to have an Alaskan husky, but then I realized that their colors can be very wolf-like. But since Karelian Bear Dogs are only black and white its acceptable.

Hehe, there is still time, you could always do a second char, just and idea :]

And thank you!

That's probably true. Damn, why didn't I think of that xD
Well, I already have two fighting characters in the tournament so I can't make another one xD If I could I would most likely have made another OC. ^^
