The Origins of Beasts
At the dawn of Colossus' time, the explosion that eventually resulted in the creation of the planet, and the appearance of life, had left the elements in chaos and disarray. The spirits of nature spoke to each other, and they worked together to stabilize the young Colossus. This weakened the spirits, and as they observed blooming life from afar, they chose to appear as physical creatures to protect the world and its lifeforms. Like this, they were able to interact with the world without tiring themselves. The gigantic guardians of the world were seen as large "beasts" by the first Colossians and called such by the young race, and the Beasts embraced this name - though they were, first and foremost, nature spirits, they were more animal-like than spirit-like, having developed their own personalities and physically appearing as large furry creatures of great strength and toughness, much like the other creatures living on Colossus.
In order to allow such Beasts to exist, the spirits of na

I just remembered I was tagged a little while back. Oops.

Tagged by Kiryu2012

He tagged Korraz, so let's have some mute bison fun.

Rules:
1 - Post these rules!
2 - List at least 8 facts about your chosen character!
3 - Tag 8 other users & their character!
4 - List the names of the tagged characters next to their creator's usernames!

1. Korraz's name is actually "Korrah". Because she is dyslexic, she tends to flip letters around. She made the mistake of flipping the last letter of her name sideways to a point where it looked like another letter, and the result was Gaiyan calling her "Korraz". Koko thought it was cute and prefers friends calling her that, or "Koko", which is a little nickname Skargor came up with for her.

2. Because she is so tall next to the other Colossians, Korraz naturally looks down to be able to look at the others. It does lead to her smashing her face in doorways often, though. It's one method of pinpointing where she is, along with the glows of her coat and her loud footsteps. She can be heard moving from a good distance, as her weight gives her loud footsteps and her coat and armor on her feet give off metallic clangs.

3. Korraz only ever takes her coat off to wash it or when she sleeps, where it is still on her person as she uses it as a blanket. She likes her coat a lot and so does literally everyone.

4. Her favorite tea is blue tea, with honey in second place.

5. She is the strongest and toughest Colossian, while Olghortur is the strongest and toughest Beast.
In fact, she would actually be stronger than Olgs if she was scaled to Beast sizes. She can lift 10 times her weight above her head, while Olgs can lift 3 times his weight.

6. Korraz was always a pacifist, but she frowns even more on violence after losing everything she held dear - her parents, her beloved little sister, her friends, and her home along with every of its villagers - to war. She is quite sure she will never get over the loss of her younger sister, Tovah, which she raised by herself.

7. She is a masterful blacksmith, having been taught the craft from a young age. She worked as a blacksmith back in her old home, and still does so today along with serving in the Order. When she is not needed with anything else, she will be spending her time blacksmithing things with her mate, Sirmaq, who is also a blacksmith.

8. Koko used to have a very deep voice, though she did not talk often and said very few words when she did. She liked to read stories to cubs. She had a terrifying and loud roar she used to scare off attackers away without having to hurt them. It was partly where she got the nickname "Korraz the Mountain", as she sounded like a living earthquake with her roars. The other reason is that she is huge and looks like a furry, grey, moving mountain of muscle and is just about impossible to topple over.

9. Korraz was not born mute. Rather, her lack of a voice is due to her falling off a cliffside and impaling herself on a rack of heated weapons she was working on, then getting angry and roaring at the Skallbor while she should have stayed quiet to let her throat heal. She had to pull out her manged vocal cords to be able to breathe properly, as with the blood and injured flesh blocking her throat, she would have suffocated. She never healed from it and Gaiyan could not heal her for the same reason she cannot heal her scars - they're already technically "healed" wounds.

10. I do consider Koko to be my main bison, along with Gaiyan. I've been using her as my go-to character in an RPG for 2 years now and been enjoying it.

Nordisk
Name: Nordisk (“nohr-dissk”)
Height: 130 meters
Weight: 390, 000 tons

Description: Nordisk is a burly, woolly rhino-like Beast who stands upright, though he may choose to move on all fours. He has a single row of jagged spikes traveling from the tip of his muzzle to the tip of his tail. The horn at the tip of his muzzle is the largest one on his skull. Nordisk’s fur is light brown, his spikes dark grey, his eyes light green and his skin dark brown. His teeth and claws are white.

Personality: Nordisk enjoys a good fight, and he is always happy to test his might against whatever challenge he comes across, which he actively goes looking for. He is a wanderer, traveling across the world to find new things to conquer.

Powers and Abilities:
- Throw a Rock at Them: Nordisk is an earthbender, allowing him a wide range of abilities using the element. He can move and shape the earth to his will, including lifting it off the ground and throwing it at terrifying speeds. He is fond of throwing massive boulders at such speeds towards his enemies. While his paws and arms are naturally good at burrowing, he can use his powers to create tunnels to move through. He can trigger avalanches, volcanic eruptions, mudslides, earthquakes and create quicksand to trap his foes in. Bringing weapons against him made with earthen materials, such as metal or stone, is a very bad idea, as he can simply render them completely useless with his mind alone. He is also able to change the environment around him with his earthbending, practically terraforming the area he is in. For example, he could turn a barren wasteland into a pit of molten rock, turn a mountain into a volcano, or turn a dune into a canyon. He can use earthbending to enhance his physical self, such as encasing his fists into rock or metal, or cover himself in armor to help resist a particularly powerful strike. A common method of his to finish foes off is to completely petrify them, then break them apart to a thousand of tiny pebbles. He himself can turn his body into earth. He is also able to transmute earthen elements into other earthen elements. For example, he may turn stone into diamond. Nordisk is not harmed by attacks using earthen materials towards him. When he falls on the ground, he is not hurt, and earth thrown at him simply breaks apart without harm.
- Seismic Senses: As a spirit of the earth, Nordisk shares a bond with it. So long as something is in contact with the earth, he can know its location. He feels the slightest vibration in the earth, making it difficult for foes to hide from him. However, airborne enemies flying high enough will make it impossible for him to locate them with his powers alone.
- Stubborn as a Rock: So long as he is in contact with the ground, Nordisk cannot be knocked over or at all picked up, no matter how much he is pushed and shoved. The sole exception is airbending, which can pluck him off the ground. He can, however, be staggered slightly.
- Firebending: Like his brother Borius, Nordisk is not one nature spirit, but two – a spirit of the earth and of fire that combined into a single force. Not only is he an earthbender, but he is also a firebender, allowing him to manipulate fire to his will. He shares the same respiratory system as the other fire Beasts – he breathes not to sustain his body, but to power his flames. This means that he can inhale smoke or ash without issue. He is also immune to heat-based attacks thanks to his fire spirit side.
- Lavabender: When combining both his firebending and earthbending, Nordisk can manipulate magma, or lava, to his will. He can rapidly cool it or heat it. He is fond of bathing in lava.
- Romping Rhino: Nordisk is a very energetic Beast, allowing him to fight for long whiles without tiring and lending him a lot of stamina.
- Rhino Charge: Much like his brother Borius, Nordisk can ram into foes with enough force to shatter their bones and snap their bodies like twigs. Thankfully for his foes, Nordisk cannot turn very well during his sprinting, allowing them to run out of the way.
- Strength of the Rhino: Nordisk is a brutishly strong Beast, capable of lifting 1, 170 000 tons in total. He can affect the earth with his physical strength alone with stomps (in a move he likes to call the “Rhino Stomp”), punches, or tail swipes. A muscular back hump gives his neck and arms extreme strength in particular, allowing him to hit hard, crush foes into bearhugs and deliver devastating headbutts.
- Tenacity of the Rhino: Nordisk is a physical tank, absorbing blows with his fur and muscle.
- Brute: Between his claws, tusked jaws, horns and spiked tail club, Nordisk is a dangerous foe to meet in melee combat. His knowledge of melee combat is also great, having learned from the many battles he engages in.
- While he can affect tectonic plates, Nordisk chooses not to, as this would cause great damage to the world. In fact, after his battles, Nordisk is known to repair the landscape he has brutalized.

Weakness: Nordisk can sometimes underestimate his foes, charging headfirst into a situation that might prove troublesome to him.

At the dawn of Colossus' time, the explosion that eventually resulted in the creation of the planet, and the appearance of life, had left the elements in chaos and disarray. The spirits of nature spoke to each other, and they worked together to stabilize the young Colossus. This weakened the spirits, and as they observed blooming life from afar, they chose to appear as physical creatures to protect the world and its lifeforms. Like this, they were able to interact with the world without tiring themselves. The gigantic guardians of the world were seen as large "beasts" by the first Colossians and called such by the young race, and the Beasts embraced this name - though they were, first and foremost, nature spirits, they were more animal-like than spirit-like, having developed their own personalities and physically appearing as large furry creatures of great strength and toughness, much like the other creatures living on Colossus.

In order to allow such Beasts to exist, the spirits of nature used their powers together to create a very unique blood - the "Beast Blood". While the Beasts possessed normal blood they used to feed and power their bodies, they needed the Beast Blood to allow them to use their powers and be capable of at all existing in the physical world. But the Beast Blood would have to be safeguarded from the Colossian creatures to prevent them from tempering with such powers, and so the Blood was to be limited to Beasts only, and only a Beast could kill another Beast by absorbing its Blood, an action that forced the physical form of the Beast to become lifeless unless its Blood was given back.

It was useful for a Beast being needed to slay another Beast, as some of the Colossians attempted to defeat the Beasts themselves, seeing them either as prey that could feed their homes for a long time or as tyrants attempting to rule over them. Some even simply wanted to slay the Beasts for glory. These violent Colossians were known as "Skallbor".

Most of the members of the Colossian race was peaceful, and simply desired to go on with their lives without needless violence, as the Skallbor's lifestyles used. These were known as "Borskall."

The Borskall regarded the Beasts and their peaceable attitude fondly, and worshipped the Beasts. Some warriors wore monstrous masks and ragged cloaks to appear as beast-like spirits in the Beasts' honor. The Beasts, however, did not like to be worshipped, and instead befriended the Borskall. The Beasts and Colossians became friends, as the Beasts taught the Borskall how to live in harmony with their environment and taught them about the forces of the world.

They realized something the Skallbor did not - that hurting a Beast also hurt the world they lived in.

Tea?
Koko is wondering what flavor of tea she'll have. Whenever I'm not lazy, I shall go back and color it properly, since this was just me testing colors. Her coat continues to be my favorite thing in all of Beast Blood. And I still failed to draw her tummy correctly. -grumble-

Doodled this while waiting for a D&D session to start. I freaking love the uwotm8 meme. Too bad Korraz doesn't know what it is nor could she at all say "you what" to someone bothering her, but eh, I couldn't resist putting a "uwot" there because funny.

I failed to draw her belly properly. She lost weight. :(
