Father was disgusted by mutations. Wanted to kill. Villagers wanted to kill. Mother hid. Hated father. Killed him when got the chance. Mother died years later, peacefully. Appreciated her insights. Made me what I am now. Would pay visit to her grave if could.

Primal saurok mutations. Coalesced groups of undifferentiated tissue. Useful for flesh-shaping. Less useful for social interactions. Provoke disgust and unflattering nicknames.

How vain is your character? Do they find themselves attractive?

Attractiveness irrelevant. What is inside, counts. Blood, guts, flesh. Useful resources.

What’s your character’s ranking on the Kinsey Scale?

Irrelevant. Do not plan on breeding. Not through conventional means.

Describe your character’s happiest memory.

Destruction of rivals by puppets. Revenge distracting, but also satisfying.

None. Life shapes identity, through “good” and “bad” elements. No event truly bad. Even worst event shapes you, makes you stronger.

Do not partake in “ice cream”.
Orchestral music, various.

Who does your character trust?

Trust no one.

Can you define a turning point in your character’s life? Multiples are acceptable.

Mastering shaman magic first stepping stone to greater power. Allowed to seek revenge. Greater step, flesh-shaping device. Wreaked great havoc. Will wreak more one day.

Is there an animal you equate with your character?

Outsiders call it devilsaur. Great, powerful creature. Does not allow anyone to dictate its will. An ambition to follow its footsteps completely.

How is your character with technology? Super savvy, or way behind the times? Letters or email?

Technology is key to power, to the future. Spend all the time with technology. To master it, to wield it against enemies.

What does your character’s bed look like when he/she wakes up? Are the covers off on one side of the bed, are they all curled around a pillow, sprawled everywhere? In what position might they sleep?

Saurok sleep with little motion. Little difference between bed at evening and morning.

How does your character react to temperature changes such as extreme heat and cold?

Am a reptile. Cold makes slow, sluggish, slow-thinking. Avoid cold at all costs. Learned to use shaman magic to warm self.

Is your character an early morning bird or a night owl?

Need little rest. Can spend half the night working, and wake up just as early.

No family left. Ancestors died. No siblings worthy of note. No descendants and none planned.

What’s your character’s desk/workspace look like? Are they neat or messy?

Keep everything in perfect order. Have the time to maintain it. Order necessary to keep research straight.

Is your character a good cook? What’s their favorite recipe, whether they’re good or not? (Microwave mac-and-cheese applies.)

Learned to cook for self. Sufficient for own need, few others appreciate the fine art. Tried using flesh-shaping to create better meat. Failed miserably.

Travel very little. Confined to lab most of the time. When possible, travel on foot. Gives greater sense of understanding the world.

Every phenomenon explainable with sufficient study. What not explained yet, will be explained one day.

Test tube.

Calloused, hard. Work hard, unavoidable effects.

Second day of favorites! Favorite comfort food, favorite vice, favorite outfit, favorite hot drink, favorite time of year, and favorite holiday.

Frog legs.
By popular perception of “vice”, pride. Create new life, “trample upon domain of gods”.
Outfits irrelevant. Whatever fits.
Mogu beer. Yes, hot.
Summer. Greatest variety of life to use in research.
Holidays irrelevant.

Describe your character’s fighting style.

Throw as much elemental damage as possible. Surround self in damaging effects to stop approach.

If your character’s life was a genre, what would it be?

Would probably be cast as monster. Horror movie about being stalked by crazy scientist.

How does your character smell? Do they wear perfume or cologne?

Smell irrelevant. Saurok gland odor found repulsive by mammals. Little luck in masking it.

If your character could contact him/herself 20 years ago, what would she/he say?

When you acquire the device, wait until more adventurers leave. Bide your time, or you will find yourself little more than slave.
