Ike is a character based off of my closest friend in real life. Said friend uses Ike as his alias and fursona online (despite having no social media profiles anywhere)
While Tobi is very anxious and nervous, Ike fills the gap with a solid presence that 'knows what he's doing' and usually stops me from doing dumb things; staying true to real life.
He's pretty relaxed and down to earth, but stubborn and blunt when 'serious' talk comes around. Although open minded, he can take a while to see things through other's viewpoints.
He's a big protective bear that's selfless for for his friends but selfish with strangers, and is GREAT at hugs.
