In a strange bout of edits, Quai's life has been turned upsidedown on one major detail: once he was once human, now once he was cougar. Instead of wanting to be human, he now wants to be cougar. This makes things imagerily different concerning his past but his self, personality, past in TheDream, and circumstances are completely the same.
Species/Race: KittyDude - Cougar anthro.
Build: Changes upon circumstances. He's usually moderately built (not buff, not toothpick) with firm arms and legs due to training as a monk. Sometimes he's terribly underfed from bad luck, plump due to getting stuck under some ultimate eating spell, Dismantled due to being randomly attacked by rabid dogs, you name it. That'll all be stated within the thread Quai's in.
Appearence: Make a cougar into an anthro. Make that anthro a monk (ie, peachfuzz head). He has plantegrade legs and in most cases no tail. A long Cougar face and a body covered in fur. Number of fingers and toes depends on the artist.
Fur Color: Brownish Gold
Eye Color: Green
Clothing: Lightbrown, loose, arcane cloth vest with mystic symbols down the hem and edges, grey cloth pants, large brown glove on left hand, bandages over right arm and hand (fingers unclothed), and red footcovers leaving the toes and heel exposed.
Accessories: A 6' long Priest Staff with a gold rimmed head - four large gold rings attached to rim, two on each side-, and a green gem on right wrist concealed under bandages...
Abilities/Skills & Power Level: The green gem amplifies his mystic powers. However his mystic powers alone are very weak, barely audible. Therefore even with the gem he can only cast limited spells. The only spells he has been taught are elemental in nature. Quai can do anything from making a flower grow to flashing the color plaid in an attempt to escape through distraction. He can make the wind gust gently, with great effort he can make it sprinkle. Shields and teleportation can be attempted... However they usually result in Quaidis passing out or loosing something important like his fur, whiskers, or a limb - so he usually doesn't go that far.
Special Effects: Has the uncanny ability to walk away from being mauled on by giant ravenious dogs. Aside from that anything that seems like a special effect (a building spontaniously blowing up which randomly tips a rake over which makes a cow herd stampede which knocks over a bucket of water which a wire somehow disconnects and falls into which electricutes Quaidis.) is really due to some sevier bad luck on Quaidis' part.
Description of Personality: Kind and considerate, Quaidis is very gentle around anything. This can be another being to a bug to a spirit to a tree. Which means he's also constantly stressed and paranoid because his bad karma always breaks something, blows something up, hurts him, or damages things around him. Everytime something bad happens, he blames it on bad karma and takes responsibility.
Bio: A long long time ago in a temple far away were a group of disaplined, buddha-worshipping cougars. They were adorned in simple cougar robes and worked hard to praise nature and tend to the temple. Quaidis was one of these cougars.
In completely unforseen circumstances, Quaidis one day ventured away from the temple. Wether this was on some mission or to simply refill a bucket of water is up in the air. What is clear is that the cougar comes across magic and, curious to find out the source, happens upon a warlock. Through a series of unfortunate events, the warlock in a fit of rage casts a spell on Quaidis to make him a zoomorph. On Quai's wrist was burned a gem of green - matching the color of his eyes - to keep him entrapped in this upright form. No longer did his robes fit, no longer could he sit upright on all fours, no longer did the cougar have a tail which to sweep the floors and conversate.
Distraught, Quaidis hobbled back to the temple. He cried to his brethren in dismay. But now that he was no longer one of them, no longer a pureblooded cougar and now some freak, they wanted nothing more to do with him. He was no longer a chosen monk at their temple. After all, Quaidis could no longer do the tasks set on him as he was no longer the right bodyshape to take on the duty. Most of all, the cougar gone awry could no longer wear the robes bestowed upon him with the pride of being what he once was. This concluded Quai was kicked unceremoniously from the temple land with only his staff and banished until he was no longer cursed.
On his way out the door, Quai pulled at the gem that just wouldn't come off and cursed his god.
... This is when his karma turned sour and bad things continually happened to him from then on.
Visiting a town nearby of unpurity, Quaidis was given a set of clothes and rations then kicked out of town when his mere presence knocked down three market stands and a tavern - then awoke a ravenous hellhound which ravaged the land. After all, who would want to be around a cat anthro that only caused trouble?
"What is your ambition?": To be cougar once again...
