Could've sworn I posted in here before, but anyways, I designed the azarians to my own specifications, utilizing primary forms of those that I felt had both visual appeal & nice minds.

Of coursewarriors, I've always been attracted to stories and books featuring animals over humans, warriors but around 6th gradewarriors, I discovered a book series by the name of "Warriors"warriors. It's about 4 clans of forestwarriors cats who..do what they do.

I LOVE these books. Even if not for themwarriors, I'd still likely be attracted to Cats.

Dude that's the exact same reason I picked my species. HIGH FIVE. :D

Well, it was between two for me. Gray wolves are my favorite animal,but yet as much as I love them I can't really identify my personality as being wolf-like. I'm not very social and wolves are very pack-oriented plus they are wild animals which means they have a streak of independence.

So, I chose a dog because I'm dependent towards the small group of people I trust enough to let get near me, I enjoy having one-on-one attention with my friends, and I love to please people and hate when I do  wrong and/or something that makes people upset. Plus, also, sometimes when I'm watching tv and there's a villian I really don't like, I'll involuntarily make this low growling sound. Also, I like to smell things. I could just sit there and smell my pillows for 20 minutes, especially if they've just been washed with a nice detergent. :3

I was always a fan of a certain cartoon coyote, because he tinkered and never gave up.  Then real coyotes would approach me in the outdoors and I had to learn more about them. They are so clever that some native peoples consider them magical. When I obtained a coyote Folkmanis puppet at a con, and read the attached card, it was clear that my choice was a good one.

I did not choose to be a fox.

The fox chose me, and I like it. (:

But seriously, Iíve always liked foxes of all kinds, even when I was little,

And itís something that has stuck with me all my life, perhaps because I want it to.

For me there was no choice really.  It goes back to the dream I had last summer where I was turned into a Lion.  The dream was so mysterious and wonderfull that when I woke I cried for having lost it.  For months after that I was depressed and only wanted to return to the dream. Ever since then I struggled to understand why I was so struck with the dream and my new found interest in everything lion.  Then I discovered this forum.  Im probably nuts, but Im happy here amonst people that accept this quirk of mine and the silliness that is my lion fursona.

I chose fox because...... well I'm not totally sure why. I was choosing between wolf or fox and I was having lots of trouble. I may have chosen fox because I loved Tails the Fox. After a fox became my fursona, I learned that a fox was the absolute perfect fursona for me.

I am a cat because cats do not have masters.
I also do what I want when I want and I never explain why I am doing it unless it pleases me to do so.

I picked my species cause I wanted my fursona to resemble my character as well as my physical appearance.
A bit individuality played a role too, to be honest since the bulldog is a little bit off the beaten paths in the fandom.
Haven't found another bully since i joined.
So, yeah- I guess that's the reason.

Well, I've loved cats ever since I was little, which is actually kind of weird if you think about it. I never spent any time around cats, and I don't think I really knew much about them either. But for some reason, I always loved them.
I decided on having long black fur for multiple reasons. The first was that I tend to more easily befriend black cats, especially if they have long hair. But the long fur would be good for keeping warm, and as for the color...well, I was born on a Friday the 13th. It seemed to fit.  :)

When I was little, I was heavily into egyptian mythology. That had a big part of my choice of species. I also didn't want to be something too too common. More research into jackals brought me to the black backed jackal. They are some of the most beautiful canines out there (at least to me  :D ) I also used to love unicorns a lot (I still do, but not nearly to the extent I used to) and that's why I am a white black-backed jackal.  8)

Ohh it was easy.
Lions are typically iconic of Power, Strength, leadership (Ok for the ladies), confidence, decisive action, bravery, Charisma (we'll call it that), levels of cunning (probably the ladies again), the intelligence of a predator and amazing stamina (all that sleeping is very strenuous you know).

Having none of these traits the lion fit my like a glove.
fortunately I am a great lover of oxymorons, Irony and generally turning something on it's head.
I was also a big fan of the cowardly lion (for the reasons listed above) and Slightly obsessive about cats (despite being allergic to them)

Oh I also love the hair.
Iíve made my statement and I stand by it, but I could be wrong.

I've always had a cat-like personality, always been just sort of generic feline. The tiger seems to suit me well because my personality has become more aggressive in recent years, and tigers are my favourite of the big cats.
