DZHOKAR KARIM

SECONDARY CHARACTER / MYTHICAL GIJINKA


Character Summary

NAME: Dzhokar Karin [ zo-KAR ] — “Dzhokar”

SPECIES: Dragon Gijinka (Noviera / Mythical Verse)

GENDER: Male (he/him) || AGE: 46+ years || BIRTH DATE: November 7th || HEIGHT: 6′ 2″ (~188 cm)

IDENTITY: Heterosexual (Straight) + Polyamorous

PERSONALITY: Charming | Gentlemanly | Seductive | Condescending | Egotistic | Vain | Guarded

Dzhokar is a prideful dragon who enjoys intelligent banter and having his ego stroked. In his young adulthood he had been something of a casanova, and though he may not be as promiscuous as he was in his prime, he remains quite vain about his appearances.

Dzhokar has a naturally courteous and gentlemanly manner of interacting with others, to make them feel at ease with him, though he also knows when to be casual and adapt to a given social situation. Also well-practiced in smooth-talking, he knows various methods in how to appear attractive and entice others into doing what he wants. He therefore tends to use his polite, charming persona to impress others as well as hide his intentions.

Normally skilled at maintaining his composure even under pressure, Dzhokar often displays a calm façade to cover up any irritation, uneasiness, or regret. That being said, he may try to use his intimidating appearance to his advantage, and can be downright condensing and spiteful when he deems it necessary, particularly when he feels threatened.

MAGIC ABILITY: Wing Expansion / Wing Reduction || Click To Expand / Collapse

Dzhokar is able to expand and reduce the size of his wings, to either increase his total wingspan to fly or to shrink them for easier travel on foot. The magic is more for practical use, but still uses up a lot of energy, especially for wing expansion. For this reason Dzhokar generally keeps his wings smaller than would be necessary for flight until needed, and to better protect them from getting in the way of obstacles, but still at a respectable size.

UNSORTED CONTENT || NOTE: Needs Revision, but click to Expand / Collapse

Dzhokar is comfortably well off due to inheritance money, and can afford to occasionally lending money and investing in other’s endeavors, business or otherwise — provided they eventually return the lent value (w/ interest).

Additionally, he enjoys seeking out items of value, buying what catches his eye, and often using smooth talk to skillfully haggle the price lower. He keeps what he likes most, then offers and sells back other items to client, generally doing these transactions in private or by request. For the right price, he will also “hunt” for a requested rare item.

  • Dzhokar has learned how to strategically manage money and items of wealth, and is careful about spending more than he should, and saving his items and remaining money. He is by no means stingy, however, and allows himself to indulge, invest, and take risks now and then.
  • Dzhokar values quality and authenticity, and has a good eye for what is valuable and what is rare. He’s able to accurately perceive an item’s worth — for both it’s practical and aesthetic qualities — and decide whether or not to collect it for himself or a client, based on what the latter values most.
  • The underside of Dzhokar’s wings are somewhat translucent, particularly around the edges. His wings are also rather mobile and flexible, much like a bat’s.
  • Holding, yanking, or otherwise messing with his wings without his permission is an easy way to irritate him; he’s quite vain about them.
  • His tail is about as long as he is tall, if not a bit longer (~6-7 feet, not including his tuft of fur at the end).
