Naor - Ahklut Character Sheet by Ahkward Naor - Ahklut Character Sheet by Ahkward
Edit: I fixed the BG, added a human for height reference and fixed some color issues.




So Ahklut is a very interesting character.

1. More foxlike, not wolflike.
2. There are two kinds, North and South. Ahk is a south type.
3. Ahk LOVES Ayeks. They have a fleshy inside and a pit in the center. However they have a crispness to them that often reminds Nyumon/outisders of apples.
4. He hates fish and is Aquaphobic (scared of water). Do not mix with hydrophobic.
5. Just realized I forgot to add in a comparison to people. Ahk's eyes are about 5'5, this is due to Ahk being a spirit. Normal Ertu are only about 3ft tall at the eyes.

I'll add more info later, I'm way too tired to do it right now. ;-; Sorry.

It looks so good! I love how you make the Ertu seem to have a playful personality!
in the description, shouldn't the last sentence say " Ayek, a fruit related to apples *,* are his favorite treats, and *he* quickly becomes your friend..." Because otherwise it means that the apples become your friends xD

The main differences are in behavior. The two are more like subspecies and evolved together, branching off not very long ago. Evolution takes a very long time and in my timeline, Naor isn't really that old as an island.

Anyway, Southern Ertu tend to be more social living in larger groups as grasslands allow for it. They are thus more prone to the social behaviors and have a sort of different body communication than the northern ones. Due to the nature of the grasslands and large stress from nearby Rohjun (where Tuhk and most bad spirits live), a lot of southern ertu are jumpy and are skittish of non pack members, even if no visible threat is seen. The southern ones also tend to be better at digging and sniffing prey out through the ground. The northern on the other hand are less social, being in small groups and tend to be quiet, shy and curious versus aggressive. They are far from Rohjun, so run into less stress. They tend to dig and scavenge whatever they can catch and are surprisingly agile having to maneuver forests.

In appearance, there is little difference though.

I love this character sheet! And now I know why Ahk and Koko hang out so much XD
Btw, how do you come up with all the names for the various places and people in Naor?
Reply
:iconahkward:
Ahkward Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2015  Professional Traditional Artist
Mh, they don't hang out over being friends. XD As far as names, it depends on the language. I think of what a Naori would name it, their reasons. Take Koko, it is actually short for Kokopelu. Koko comes from his species, a Koanfu, pelu means footpath (or oars, lol). Fahle had found Koko just off of a footpath and took him to raise him, and Fahle has a very uncreative mind. XD I figured she would be pretty literal.

With Ahklut, Ah is of course a sound, a yelling or upset sound. Lu means gross or unwanted. In the past, Ahk would cause trouble among villagers, causing tgem to yell and resent him, and they named him Ahklut, the k being sort of a connector letter. It is also common for words using "lu" as unwanted to add a t on the end. That way the listener knows if the speaker means unwanted or gross. Ahk isn't really gross, but with the trouble he caused, I would not want him in the village.

I create names and such around how I think the Naori think, not me as an American understands my own language. I try to anyway.
