Paper Cat ref. by mussatsu-lain Paper Cat ref. by mussatsu-lain
Name: Paper Cat (it is just a name, he is not made out of paper), PC for short
Age: 1 month
Gender: Male (but he has a feminine voice and speech habits)
Species: Nocturne

Nocturnes are entities made of light and shadow centered around a core that powers them. Despite their bodies being comprised of shadows, their beings are tangible and can be touched. But their forms are not static and can be manipulated.
The shape of their body is like a shadow flickering in the light.
Note: Most Nocturnes are fearful of the dark and gather around large amounts of light. If it fails to find light, it will self-destruct. This is because, as shadow, they lose their definition without light. PC, however, does not suffer from this because he has an outline, or a glow, which grants his shape definition no matter the amount of light.

Height: normally 1'4

Abilities/Skills:
-Ephemeral Growth: He can increase the size of his shadow at the cost of part of his outline. This means that he loses speed when he does this, in exchange for resistance. This is illustrated above. However, the reduction in the size of his outline means he is less able to transform his body parts into weapons and is more vulnerable to the dark.
-Arsenal Legion: Normally nocturnes cannot directly manipulate the shape of their shadow, but because PC has an outline, he can. By changing his outline, he can shape his shadow form into weapons or really anything he wants. But because it is controlled by the outline, the range is limited.
-He has a suicide attack (self-destruct, mentioned above), but would never use it.

Strengths: Can withstand a heavy amount of physical abuse because he made of shadows. His outline.

Weaknesses:
-His form is dispersed in water (because it is shadow, again), but he is able to float on top of the water.
-Because of the nature of the core powering him, he is particularly weak to magic.
-The core is a weak point (it is in his head, but this shouldn't be common knowledge.).
-Holding a shape that is not his normal, relaxed shape for an extended period of time will tire him.
-Becomes paralyzed when his tail is grabbed.
-Is not as capable at inflicting damage as you'd think

Personality: PC is normally passive and evasive in terms of confrontation, but he has a sharp wit and likes to make lame jokes. He can be somewhat insulting. Although he would rather avoid conflict, he isn't afraid to get the job done, if that is what is needed.

Mannerisms: Often adds "-ku" onto the end of sentences.

History: These creatures are not a normal occurrence and have only recently been spotted. Little is known as to why or what they are here for. PC especially falls under this category, he spends much of his time observing.

Likes: Sushi, fried lizard tails, and grapefruit.
Dislikes: Milk, yarn, raw fish, and being called a cat.

Is PC flat?

no, he has an optical illusion that makes him appear flat when the light outline is around him.

Welp, looks like we're paired up. Grats on making it in!

Moving on though, two weapon-shifters, how fun is that? :'D I sadly can't send a note to you right now since I'm on a hurry, but if you wish to start discussion while I'm gone, feel free to note me! 8D
