PostSubject: Autumn Leaf    Thu Jun 18, 2015 10:39 am

Name:
Autumn Leaf (RPAM001)
Gender:
Male
Age:
3 Years old
RP Data
Born in ??? 17th
First appeared ??? At 3 years old.
Rank:
Rover
Description
Autumn Leaf is a average looking meerkat, only weights around 1 pound and stands 14 inches tall. He is scrawny and scruffed looking, he has messy sandy brown fur with dark grey stripes, tail tip, ears and eye patch, dusty brown paw pads with odd orangeish eyes and light grey underfur.

Autumn Leaf does not have any noticeable scars not even on his tail base, well at least currently due to being a rover and alone for a while he has become rather thin and his fur looks very much unkept and is itchy quite often though he has had his messy unkept look for all his life, it's just how his fur looks, but it looks even more so in recent times. Despite his rather scrawny and thin look, he is not frail at all in fact he can take a lot of hits and has good pain tolerance.

Personality
Autumn Leaf is a fairly interesting meerkat to say the least. He's prideful, confident and a little bit of arrogance and egotism in the combination, and only really help or even care about others for his own gain and shows very little sympathy towards anything.

He is also very manipulative and cunning enought to mask his true nature completely (well kinda) if needed and if he really, really wants something, you dam bet he'd be determined to get what he wants through any means possible. And not only that, due to being on his own for a long time and constant trouble finding food he began developing a taste for the flesh of his own species whom he considers newborn pups of lone females or very small mobs "Easy pickings" but getting those "easy pickings" are a lot harder to get when you're a small skinny hungry rover.

History
Pre-Birth
Autumn and his brothers would be born within a splinter group of 10 from a mob named the Dark-Matter mob named after the territory they live in which looks like a endless are of dirt with occasional bush and trees, kinda like the universe which is mostly darkness with occasional galaxies littered about. The splinter group, after a while came to be named the Anti-Matter mob. A week after the splint, their natal-mob was last seen with TB thus eventually becoming lost with the dominant male and 3 of his sons and oldest (firstborn) daughter being the only survivor and emigrated into Anti-Matter raising the group's numbers to 15. and became the dominant female along side her father..

Early Puphood
Autumn Leaf was born in a all male litter of 4, their arrival was mostly ignored as they were the offspring of a young year old subordinate female whom mated with a rover from a wild unknown mob, but was evicted nor had her pups killed due to the fact her sister whom is the dominant female was much older did see her as a threat to her leadership and plus she can't really produce pups of her own due to her father being in the way so their aunt was secretly happy about them being born. However when they were a week old, tragedy soon befell upon them when their mother failed to hear the alarm call and was taken by a bird of prey. They would have starved to death if it weren't for their Aunt whom adopted them as her own, the other mob members refused to feed them and often mocked or insulted the DF for letting them live as they were a subordinate's offspring

Late Puphood
Their first foraging trip was not very kind to the 4 brothers or the entire mob, food was scares and everyone was having a hard time not going home hungry, luckily for them their Aunt is there to feed them milk when needed but the subordinates did bring them any food, those who did we're relentlessly bullied and often had food taken from them if they managed to get any.
This caused Autumn Leaf to rather aggressive towards nearly everyone, his brother Windsheer became very quiet and preferred to observe things in the sidelines, Calamity is a trouble maker and Pride lives up to his namesake.


Juvenile Months
By the time Autumn Leaf was nearing his sub-adult years he has been shaped into a cold, heartless individual who often manipulates others to get what he wants, for his lack of strength and size he certainly makes up for his brains.

However everything took the turn for the worst when their Aunt was bitten by a cape cobra at a bolt hole, rather than the mob staying by her a side, one of the older females began letting out lead calls and led the mob away from their now former dominant female.

With a new leader that doesn't like them at hand its seemed like the mob went from just ignoring and giving them a cold shoulder to making them into full blown punching bags in which Autumn Leaf had enough of and went to their grandfather who is the dominant male and convinced him to take them and most if not all the males within the mob to go roving because they weren't gonna accomplish anything staying there. And so the dominant male caused the mob to split into 2 by taking 7 of their members including Autumn Leaf and his brothers to a roving trip and has to plans to take them back to the mob.

Years Gone by
The quadruplets eventually reached adulthood at the age of one under their grandfather's coalition care though eventually the four broke away from them and split up, Windhseer went off to join another mob, Calamity and Pride seemingly left the reserve for greener pastures probably. Leaving Autumn Leaf to roam the savannah all by himself.

Autumn Leaf for a while lingered near his natal mob for a while for protection and to see how'd they'd progress, there many fights among the 8 remaining females and had no clear dominance, the apparent dominant female at the time actually mated with Autumn Leaf despite him being her nephew but the mob had mostly forgotten about the 4 brothers at that point, and did become a Anti-Matter dominant male at some point for a year, but he wasn't a good dominant male since he didn't want to stick around the mob, he only become a dominant to see what it would be like. Eventually he left the mob permanently to search for unrelated females for once, not knowing if his children lived or not.

It's fine to me, but I'd talk with Taakah and make sure she is alright with having another cannibal 'kat around.

Otherwise, accepted 1/2.

I'm personally not a big fan of cannibal characters... but I don't think it's necessary to ask Taakah about it.  Still, it wouldn't hurt.

We'll unlike Xyleath he's doing it more out of necessity not enjoyment, if food is plentiful he probably won't do it unless he happens to join up with Xyleath or something.

Also forgot to point out that. Since Pancake wants more realistic characters I decided to mention he mated with one of his aunts, and incest is fairly common in meerkats (an example is with Zaphod and his niece Monkulus/Maybelline).

So no offense to anyone by the way if that offended anyone.

It didn't offend me, and although meerkat incest isn't uncommon\unheard of I don't think it happens extremely often. When a brother\sister duo take over as natal dominants they rarely mate, same with niece\uncle, father\daughter or cousins.

Personally I think the cannibalism can work as long as it is performed in restriction, i.e Autumn Leaf will only eat his own kind when he's starving and even then it is an intense moral conflict for him.

Most often, males are rejected if they make advances towards their female relatives. I remember reading that the KMP did a DNA test on some of Maybelline's pups to determine whether they were Zaphod's or from various rovers. I believe it turned out to be the latter since Zaphod was quite old at that point and probably less physically active at fending off rovers. However whenever incest does occur in any species of animal, the offspring are likely to be inflicted with handicaps and/or deformities.

When reading the book about Flower, I remember there was a part in the story that said when Rocket Dog miscarried a single pup Machu Picchu ate it. I believe that occurred when the Kalahari was in a severe drought, so that could result in an increase of acts of cannibalism in some species.

The pup was already dead though, and died from premature birth, so that doesn't count.

Honestly, we need to remember that cannibal characters make some people uncomfortable, and our characters are likely to outcast those who make a habit of it.

True. Razz

It's going to be difficult enough for female characters to be accepted into the groups, so the chances of cannibalistic characters being accepted is most likely going to be slim. I agree with Pancake that we don't make creating cannibalistic meerkats a regular thing as they may disturb some of the members. Plus, it wouldn't be realistic to have several cannibalistic meerkats roaming the Kalahari. Razz

Yea like I said Autumn Leaf would only really do it if hes starving (plus getting a pup when you're a rather small male meerkat is far from easy and he hates going through that much hassle for a meal and sure as hell won't eat any of his own despite being sort of a sociopath and sure as heck won't do it in front of any mob members if he manage to join a mob unless in a burrow raid of course but not every time )

Plus the relative he mated with was wanting dominance really badly so the small mob can return to its orderly self and they really didn't care about Autumn Leaf and his brothers so they were easily forgotten, so when Autumn Leaf came back the female was a bit quick to accept him.

Sorry if Autumn Leaf caused a bit conterversy or something I was just finding ways to make a interesting character.

I don't mind having another cannibal around, as long as they're not too alike with Xylaeth. But then again it isn't really up to me.

I've never had any interest in him pairing up with anyone, much less him joining a mob, so the outcast part wouldn't really affect him anyways. But if he finds someone that he doesn't want to kill, he may let them hang around for a while before he chases them off xD

Regarding members being uncomfortable with cannibalistic characters, of course any actual cannibalism that went on I would put in very obscure detail. Xylaeth will rarely get ahold of any characters played by our members, especially because of the lack of them at the moment. And even if he did, they'd likely escape unless the other player wouldn't mind their Kat being killed... You know, if they were tired of playing them and what not.

Well, as long as you guys don't go into massive details if the cannibalism does happen (Like maybe say the targeted 'kat gets dragged away or something and just leave it at that. XD), I can tolerate it.

Accepted 2/2

Actually, they're quite inspiring regarding plots. >3 Maybe I'll have Behrooz encounter one of them at some point. Further plot ideas in the works. Razz

Accepted 3/3
