Ryak-Lo Mutant Design Contest Entry- Morphnus by narutardednerd Ryak-Lo Mutant Design Contest Entry- Morphnus by narutardednerd
Name: Morphnus (the genus name of some eagles)

Age: 19

Personality: Doesn't talk to much. Resents non-mutants and can be ruthless to anyone who he thinks stands in his way. He has a kind-hearted side that he occasionally shows towards other mutants and very small children.

Abilty/Fight Style: He has wings even when he isn't transformed. He has very good eye-sight. It is 10 times a regular human when he isn't transformed and at least 100 times better than that when he is. He usually swoops in on his enemies and slashes them with his talon-like hands or gores them with his sharp beak. When he transforms his hair turns into feathers, he grow feathers all over his body, his hands and feet become talon-like, and his eys take on a creepy yellow appearance.

Back story: Morphnus was infused with various eagle genes as a fetus, and was born with a thin build, and grey and black wings. There were others he were born in the same way, but they had white wings and appeared very angelic. The scientists who created these got the idea that it would be a great contrast if he had a particularly freakish appearance. After many surgeries, the results were the scars on his face, other hidden scars, and his ability to transform. All of the other bird-children who he grew up with ended up dying because they were weaker. Morphnus, out of anger, killed the main scientist responsible and ran away, at age 14. He ran way and eventually met the Vagabonds.

Sorry some of the line art is messy and I messed up the colors in a couple places. The anatomy for the transformed version is kind of off too. It might seem weird that I drew chibi version, but I always like to when designing a chracter. ^_^ Anyway, I'm overall satisfied with how it turned out, and I hope you like it.

Sure. If you want to bring flowers. it really liked day lilies and red roses. Kinda random, but one or the other works.
