Character Reference Sheet for :icontbos-oct: : Swiftsure

:bulletblack: Name: Swiftsure
:bulletblack: Physical description: Swiftsure is a small dog-like creature with white and blue fur and a fish tail instead of a regular dogs tail. He is 11 inches high at the withers.
:bulletblack: Age: Technically hes 11 years old, but he mostly behaves like a 4-6 year old, depending on the situation

:bulletblack: History:
Before he gets drawn into the book Swiftsure is NOT a real living being. Hes an imaginary creature, that Princess Antigone created in her mind to deal with the rigid training her governesses and teachers forcer her through, a way for her to display childish behaviour and traits that she is not allowed to display after her mother leaves the university.
As a consequence of this he spend most of his life amusing the princess by playing pranks on her teachers and clowning around in the library. He gets drawn into the book (by accident?), after Antigone is sent into the book by Lady Ink.

:bulletblack: Personality:
Swiftsure is a happy-go-lucky clown who understands nothing about real life and has to learn to come to terms with it after getting sucked into the book. Hes optimistic, friendly, childish, seems to have slight ADD, and is not very observant. Hes small, fast and very athletic.
Swiftsure adores Antigone and does anything she wants him to do (hes part of her brain after all) except vanishing (which is what she wants him to do after realizing that she is too old to have an imaginary friend).
Hes also fearless, because nothing has ever been able to hurt him before, now that he is a part of the book, he is confronted with wants and needs that he has never had before (hunger, thirst, tiredness, pain, fear etc.) and has to deal with them.

:bulletblack: Abilities:
Swiftsure is fast and athletic, he can climb almost anything. Because he was created to express Antigones suppressed feelings and impulses, he is still susceptible to the repressed wishes, emotions and impulses of the people around him. He sometimes unwittingly expresses them and if he spends enough time with a person (and if that persons repressed impulses are strong enough) he can absorb their hidden impulses and make them part of his character and physical appearance (without taking them away form the OC, they are still going to experience them, Swiftsure just has to experience them, too).
:bulletred: Example: if a good character has strong aggressive impulses Swiftsure might absorb them. His body would change into that of a stronger kind of canine, become taller and more muscular, grow a stronger jaw etc, the OC would still have the same impulses, but they would have made a lasting impression on Swiftsure, that could only be changed if he then absorbed someone elses loving and peaceful impulses.
EDIT: I just realized this sounds a bit unclear so... Swiftsure will not only change physically he will also display the absorbed impulses in his behaviour, so referring to the previous example he would also become more aggressive in his way of talking and his reactions to others.
:bulletblack: Rules for the physical change:
- Body will still be that of a canine (he can not become a cat) - He will still have a fish tail.
- The colors of his coat might change if the impulses are strong enough.

:bulletblack: Chosen by: the book.
:bulletblack: Gift: A blank page.

No, he still has most of it, Antigone currently keeps it for him, she scribbled some stuff onto it on R1, you can find the page here: [link]

Ok, thanks! One more thing - does antigone know much about her door, or is she clueless about it?
AndMyShadow Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You're welcome. Antigone knows that it has the power to taker her to exactly the place and time in her homeworld she wants to reach, but she doesn't know if it can do anything else, e.g. taker her to a different time than her own or take her to a different place in the book.
