Rico by Maara-G Rico by Maara-G
Pack applying for:

Rico, also called Zombie, Little Creep, Weirdo, Bones,

capo/ Xoloitzcuintli / Doberman / chinese xigou


Personality: Rico LOVES the Macabre. He has a penchant for creepy things, bones, darkness and oddities. But hes not malevolent in the least. He’s a smart, funky, morbid dog with a dark sense of humour. He s, however, rather kind and gentle, though give him a reason to hate you and he’ll never let you forget it. He can be easily angered and violent if provoked and he is incredibly driven and focused when given a command. He’s creative but brooding and quiet, eloquent and intense. He loves bugs, especially beetles and seems to be a little bit of a masochist, for he has a great tolerance for pain.
He has the head of a xigou, the body of a capo, the cropped ears of a dobie and the unusually warm skin of a xolo. His markings are very nearly symmetrical, and his fur is very thin, like peach fuzz, sometimes dissapearing altogether, due to his xolo blood. He has a tuft of fur on top of his head from his capo lineage and fluff near his ears. He possesses very little of a Dobermans physicality, that all resides in his mind. He is very thin and bony, with in-turned hocks, resulting in a lurching gait. His back is very convex, with mild scoliosis.

Rico was born to be strange from the day he was conceived. Both of his parents were guard dogs at a Carnival Freakshow. Born as the only pup of his litter with extensive skeletal markings, he was quickly taken, trained, and placed in the Freakshow itself as a performer. However, he was weaned too early, resulting in several bone problems, such as his scoliosis and inwardly turned hocks. But the Freakshow manager didn’t care about that, they were only things that made him stranger. Life went on quite well for Rico, also called Zombie, until he reached the age of three. That year, one of the firebreathers accidentally set the show on fire, and the show was forced to move. Unfortunately, at the new venue, Rico wasn’t allowed so he was left behind. He’s stayed at the carnival ever since, eeking out some sort of living for himself.

Weaknesses: Rico will admit he’s not the best runner, despite his lineage possessing quite a bit of sighthound ancestry. He can get a bit cocky, and he’s also a bit reclusive, so he’s kind of behind on a lot of pack news a lot of the time. Finicky, dubious, remorseless.

Strengths: Intelligent, sincere, honest, sly, hard to beat down, persistent, observant, passionate.

wow, but where did you adopt the capo mix since it isn't an open breed to make

i asked Ck if it was okay to have RIco be part Capo, and she said yes. The only rp character i've ever adopted was Lazarus.
