RoA - Ymp Ref by dragonrider292 RoA - Ymp Ref by dragonrider292

Took longer than I expected, with some colour scheme changes, but here it is: a nice little ref for Ymp. Worked on it last night and a bit today to get it done, though I still bet I could do more with the eyes... I tried making them look less flat, just to have them pop better against all the dark red. Oh well.

Isn't it a tiny creature?


Name: Ymp
Age: Unknown
Gender: Unknown (sometimes referred to as male)
Species: Unknown
Height: 1í2Ē sitting

Abilities/Skills: Somehow, Ymp possesses the ability to float/fly despite not having wings, or any other visible means of lift. In the air itís rather quick, and is commonly seen zipping around and bothering people, only to shoot away before they can counter. Its eyes also seem to be very keen, like its deceptive intelligence, and apparently are capable of seeing in the dark. Small claws and teeth appear to be its only weapons.

Personality: Ymp is.. Playful. Curious. It can best be described as a nosy child with such a look of innocence that, when it turns its big eyes on you, itís downright hard to say no, even if itís just raided your room for shinies. Unable to sit still and polite, though rather lacking in boundaries, are also fair attributes that can be applied to it, and generally for most of the time. There are moments however, when, despite the baby-like tendencies it keeps up, it shows itself to be rather intelligent and aware. Whatever Ymp really is, itís not simple, and it doesnít seem to mind whether you think it is or not. An odd little creature. Perhaps mysterious would be another good trait for itÖ Also doesnít seem to like weapons much, and shows a high level of loyalty to those it likes.

Mannerisms/Attitude: Unable to speak, unless its sounds are actually its own language, Ymp converses with basic noises such as purring, small shrieks, growls, Ďmrrsí, etc. Other things to note are the fact that it prefers to float, its long hind legs making walking somewhat difficult and more of a hop-skip process, and that itís usually very difficult to upset - the exception being with sorrow and the like.

History: As Ymp canít really communicate, thereís no way of knowing where itís been, whatís happened to it, or if it even has family. All thatís known is, before meeting and tagging after Echo, it was living almost like a stray in the background noise of Eama. During that time it seems to have developed an aversion to being left totally alone, and strongly distrusts those holding weapons or weapon-like objects- regardless of intentions.

Likes: Company, pranks, sweets, new things, flying, laughing, shinies, etc (not much it doesnít like, really)
Dislikes: Solitude, fire, guns/weapons in general
Other: Ymp is subject to much change and, to be honest, frequent consistency issues. Feel free to call it him, as well- I keep doing it myself without meaning to. This profile will likely be mended as I go.

Oh, but Ymp does not fight. He's... a sidekick? Or maybe a clock...
