let's dance by Bassara let's dance by Bassara
"By nature, Panthryans are cowards -- No. -- Not nature. Nurture. If the Canids' creed is 'one shot, one kill' I guess ours would be something like 'never fight a battle you can't win' or perhaps 'friends are important -- it gives the enemy somebody else to kill.'
"---And?"
".....I wonder when that changed for me."


Request 10: Somebody badly injured, but isn't giving up.

I'm sorry if you wanted the Avatar pic really badly; I tried out a couple Tophs and they didn't look so interesting, so I went with your other request...which I turned into a ParaShi one OTL OTL OTL OTL OTL.

If you watch my scraps, you've already seen this guy. He's somewhat older in this one.

ParaShi belongs to me and nuri.

Right the hair'snot the same so it cnt be Osprey, plus the scarf is different, but it's most likely the young Pathryan seen in this pic [link] or in the pic Killing time by Bassara, of course i could be wrong and it could be Blitz or Rai. any way, excellent work, it sort of breathes out determination.

he.he.he.he. :]

I can confirm it is indeed that Panthryan. :D

Also to comment on your previous comment...

It's not quite a kimono...more like a ...keikogi? A sleeve-less keikogi?!?!?! Namefail OTL. Though kimono are a thing this character would wear. XD

Also thanks !

You can really see the determination to keep going forward in his eyes! Have I told you how much I love your conversation inserts??? 8D They're the right amount of tantalizing, imagination-activating snapshots into your story. :D

XD. Dialogue, to me, has always been the most intriguing parts of literature....because they are always open to reader interpretation :]. That and it's like throwing out spoilers without confirming them OTL.

Um, this is just so epic that I can't even deal with it right now.
So have a completely inane comment instead.


No seriously, I really adore this, and that little snippet of dialogue is just fantastic. <3

Such a harsh reality for Panthryans... I'm happy to see him breaking this trend but I do hope it isn't going to cost his life! ... Is that static I see coming out of his eyes? That or a really vibrant tear! ^^

So panthryans are known for being people you can't trust? I hope that wasn't too obvious by now /o/. I wonder if Rai has already betrayed someone... Or if Blitz has problems being goofy despite the bad image of his kin. (Blitz is goofy, right?) Hmm... Blitz leaves me perplexed... About lot of things.
Talking about the Trifecta. If I'm not seeing things that aren't really there, Inferno seems to have a trend of making friends with Panthryans. Haha................. Boy, I hope it isn't Cain the one this person is fighting.

Oh, another thing *nags*. A race of canids? You're refering to the "wolfs", right? (gosh, the name escapes my senile memory :( ) One shot one kill? That gives a sniper vibe, but I thought snipers were the people of Inferno's kin! ~Koikolida mentioned the Kitsunejin too. Are they tricksters? I know nothing zero nada about them. Ahh do you plan on making a "let's introduce the main races of Shift deviation" any soon? XD

Bassara Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2012
Oh no. This is going to be long.

1) That's sort of an electric spark.

2) I wouldn't call it "people you can't trust". They have some of the highest mission success rates, so at the least, you can trust their skills. Especially among themselves, their trust in each others' abilities is second to none....and this translates to excellent teamwork.

Trust them to sacrifice their life to save yours? Probably not. When it comes down to it, Panthryans are taught not to be heroes, basically.

Oh btw...They eat, they drink together, they have fun like any other group of people. Just if they leave you bleeding out in the forest somewhere because they couldn't take you with them, no hard feelings.

3) About Rai... :D He didn't quite grow up among Panthryans. I'll just say that much. Coincidentally, he grows up to be just like them anyway.

4) People will react to Blitz however they want. :D Not all Panthryans are like that, but the stereotypical ones are. Some grew up in multi-cultural areas, so they weren't brought up to think like that.

5)On Inferno: :D There's something wrong in your assumption, but it's ok. All I'm going to repeat from my scraps was that I said this,

"Not who you think it is, but if you think, you can make a fair inference. Regardless, I will not tell you if you're right or not."

You think it's 1 or 2, but really there was a 3rd option.


:)


6) Canids = Inferno's Clan. That's what the Panthryans call them. The 'Wolf Clan' may not exist anymore. That one's always sort of been a place-holder name. OH. VERY WELL. Since both of you asked. LOOK UP HERE LARIAT.

Inferno's Clan in its most up-to-date incarnation is Tenkojin. Tenko - 天狐 They aren't tricksters. Not all of them anyway. There is historical relevance at work here. :p

7) I doubt I'll ever introduce the main races in Shift in a deviation. I like to erratically drop little bits here and there. And everywhere.

8D 8D 8D longer the better! Heehee~

Interesting info about Panthryans! I believe they didn't have a country of their own, right? I guess that would make them very adaptable :D

Rai's grown up to be just like a Panthryan? Interesting, makes me wonder what kind of childhood he had. Probably a harsh one. :X
I was thinking of Rai's mechanical arm the other day. Just to confirm, he is skilled in mechanics, isn't he? Self taught? Hmmm I'd go with the intuition he had an education :D

Ooh, so there's something wrong with my assumption? Maybe I have an idea of what it is... But I probably won't be sure for a while ; )

Tenko?... "Celestial Fox"? Historical relevance? HMMMMMM. I can think of many mythological ones but historical? HMMMMMM.

No more wolves? Ooh, weren't the wolves Aurora's clan? What are they now? :?

Well, it didn't hurt to ask XD let's see what I can dig around here...

1) Someone taught him how to use his arm, yes. :D He also taught himself. Rai has a talent for remembering things very well on learning them once. Not a natural talent. A learned talent. A side effect from his upbringing. Nonsense. Just your imagination. He had a great upbringing.

2) Yeah. There's something wrong with it. But it's not your fault. It's a logical assumption.

3) Historical relevance. In ParaShi.

4) 8) I'll reveal that info someday. Perhaps. On Aurora's clan.

Also, Kitsunejin are called Canids now? Or is that referring to something else (since that's not the scientific name for foxes)?

:iconbassara:
Bassara Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2012
I might clarify, that 'Canid' and 'Felid' are terms used only by those two clans to describe each other.

Kitsunejin are called something else now. Canids are slang for them. Felids are slang for Panthryans. Like Drakes.
