Rekala is a shapeshifter! This is her feline form. Her other form is human. I sometimes draw her human form as an anthro instead ([link]
). Her anthro form is not an official part of her story, but I draw it more often cause it's more fun than drawing her as a human c:
I update her cat form reference sheet once a year. Her markings and design hasn't changed since last year (apart from the forehead stripes and her shoulder scars being more visible), but I think it's fun to see how my style develops.
Species: Felidray (Shapeshifter)
Cat form Height (shoulders): 1,60 m.
Rekala is the average size of a horse and large enough to carry people on her back. Anatomy
She has a slender/thin build, lacking physical strength and relying more on speed and agility. The tip of her tail can be folded in or widened like a fan for better balance. She has below average night vision. While in her cat form, she can roar, hiss and purr. She has longer, soft fur on her neck and chest, long stiff fur on her tail tip and shorter fur on the rest of the body.Brief Personality and backstory:
Rekalas mother died shortly after she was born. Her father trained her to fight since she was little. Her preferred weapons are long knives/daggers and she shoots a recurve bow.
Rekala is independant, quiet, curious and adventurous and doesn't make friends easily. She can be bossy and stubborn and tends to keep other people at a distance, mostly because she doesn't wanna hurt or get hurt. But she deeply cares about those who are close to her, to an extend where she would do anything for her friends. She doesn't take defeat well and is a perfectionist.
She will be friendly, but on guard when approached. It takes while for her to warm up to others, but once she does, she'll be your friend for life.
She tends to act on her heart instead of her head.
