Name Pronounced: Tour ik coo sa ta (Tour e)
Appearance: Standing at a good 6’ he is a rather tall man, but tall or not he isn’t a very big man at only about 165 pounds.
Personality: Torikkusuta, or Tori as he prefers, is a great fan of tricks even at his forty turns. He likes to pick, poke, prod, and play tricks on anyone he can manage to get to sit still long enough. It has calmed some in the past turns between ageing, Sagishi, and Akisu, but given the chance he will still do what he can. He doesn’t much like being in one place for long either it was why he originally took up the life of a trader it let him travel and be ‘free’ or as free as one can be now that thread is falling.
History: He was born to Torxyni and Kuikta cot holders under Telgar Hold’s control, he was their last child born when his father was forty and his mother thirty five twenty three turns before the start of the 8th pass, 15 days into the 3rd month. He has four sisters and two brothers though he was never particularly close to any of them as even Tatorii the one closest in age to him was already five turns his senior. Maybe it was because of this though that he early on learned the art of trickery.
Information about Torikkusuta (Tori)'s pets
Pet Name: Fellis
Pet Type: Green Firelizard
Appearance: Egg: Blues, greens, purples and yellows join together. Someone could love one neon hues but unfortunately they're all part of the package. They don't even blend in some sensible way. Where there's one shade, so are others, making a multi-hued haze stretching endless across the egg. Who knows where one color starts and another begins? And who care when it hurts them just looking at it. (Fellis)
Personality: As off as she is physically one would think she would be an emotional train wreck, and really they would be right. She is loyal to her pet and loving if scatter brained and easily distracted. Something shiny will call her away from her pet in no time, but one call from him and back she goes. She is always a chittering happy thing, or rather for the most part, that is until you realize she is something of a little time bomb waiting to blow. Scatter brained as she is you do anything to her pet and she will explode with all the ‘rage’ a firelizard can manage again who or what ever did it, luckily she /is/ so easily distracted though as she will soon be draw away by /something/. Just beware never leave anything sweet or faranth forbid alcoholic around where she can get it, she will be chittering up a storm for the next candle mark bothering everyone she sees for attention or shinnies or what ever else she can think of. When she crashes for the day though after all her energy is spent, especially after one of her episodes, she will be out and nothing short or a hurricane will wake her until she is good and ready to get up again.
Second Pet Name: Tunnelsnake
Pet Type: Green Firelizard
Appearance: The green that hatches out of this egg has a very long and lithe body. She seems to be all neck and tail. Her body is over all a very gentle shade of pea green with an unusually speckling of olive that makes her hide appear like there are individual scales covering her. Her wings are proportional and when she walks this green lady moves with the utmost silent grace. (ball python) Hatched: 08.19.05.07
Personality: Preferring to curl into a tight little ball when sleeping, this green is the very quiet observer. She will listen intently to all her owner has to say, merely responding with the cocking of her head and a light hum. When angered this green is an explosion of action. She hisses fiercely and expect there to be much striking as she tries to bite whatever has turned her mood so sour.
Third Pet Name: (Angry) Sand Shadow
Pet Type: Brown Wher
Appearance: Egg - Angry Desert Egg: One question will come to mind when you're observing this egg. How was loose, dry sand made into this spherical shape? K'gra and Citruse will assure everyone that they're seeing the Angry Desert Egg and not desert sand that somehow arrived from Igen. Two red patches, that're like round eyes, stare angrily outward, supporting their claim because sand doesn't normally have eyes. Especially not red ominous eyes that seem fixated onto anyone that paused before this egg.
Personality: This boy seems no more than some shadow prowling after Torikkusuta since there isn't much he'll consider saying. Nor would he consider making vocal sounds unless it's necessary for chasing some female wher. This brown would prefer thinking and leaping into action rather than wasting time with discussions that’ll have uncertain outcomes. However, all his thoughts that are outside the mating runs seemingly center around sand...
