The Character Questionnaire
Let’s start by sharing a link of your character!
What is your character’s name, any reason behind the choice?
- Tica. I was looking up native South American names, because sloths are from the Amazon. I think I was looking up Inca names and I turned up the Quechua name meaning "flower": Tica. Seeing as the Quechua languages are centered around Peru, and the name was adorable, it seemed like a perfect fit.
What is your character’s species, and why?
- Hoffmann's two-toed sloth. I always loved sloths since I first learned about them in 4th grade when we studied the Amazon rainforest in school. I had some sparklelion fursonas before this, but when I really sat down to do some soul-searching into what animal truly represented me as I am, I turned up with "sloth." Hoffmann's two-toed sloth appealed to me a lot more than Linnaeus's or the three-toed variety, so there you go. I commissioned a two-toed sloth fursuit and that was that.
What made you decide on the colours and/or markings?
- Tica's colors/markings are based entirely off gray two-toed sloths found in google image searches.
What does your character mean to you?
- She's me an anthropomorphic animal form. Not what I wish I was, or what I'd be if I could, but simply what I would be if I lived in a world populated by non-human critters like this.
Feel free to do this meme too if you want to, and if you do, comment with a link to it :D
