Rico by TheFrymon Rico by TheFrymon
This is for :iconchernobyl-curs:

Name: Rico
Breed Base: Doberman
Age: 4 years (human)
Gender: Male
Abilities: None, just a normal doggie :3
Strengths: 1. He is quite large, so a smaller dog would have troubles hurting him
2. He has a very high I.Q so he is very good at planning out strategies
3. He is very strong, and has a strong bite, that can easily injure any dog
Weaknesses: 1. He has very little fur, so it's easier to scratch/bite him
2. He has quite bad hearing, so if you manage to get out of sight/ behind him he most likely won't hear you coming
3. Because of his violent past, he often has flash backs which will cause him to freeze in the middle of a fight, this leads to an easy target for the opponent
Personality: Rico was a fighting dog. He will kill anything in his path if told to, or if necessary for his own survival. But if you look past that, he's a total sweet heart. He cares more so about others than himself and is very friendly. He always beats himself up after injuring/ killing another dog
History: Rico used to be a fighting dog. His owner abused him, and one day Rico injured his owner, by biting his leg, then ran off. Sometime then the stone on his collar popped off and rolled somewhere... but he can't remember anything about his collar. He chooses to forget his past, and look forward to joys in life
Likes: -Friendly people
- The colour red
- rain (it's the closest he'll ever feel to swimming)
-Challenges
Dislikes: - People who kill for the joy of killing
- Himself, for what he's done in his past
-large bodies of water
-heights
Other: The bandage is on his ear because his owner was unable to crop it, so it was left on, so he didn't have one cropped hear and a floppy ear. HE IS NOT BLIND IN HIS LEFT EYE. IT IS JUST A DIFFERENT COLOUR :meow:

ALSO! I'm pairing with :iconreedflower101: for this C:

Alright, we've finished our review.

One thing you really need to keep in mind when picking weaknesses is context. This is a dog, fighting other dogs. The chances of the fear of heights being any sort of issue are very slim. The only logistical place for him to be attacked from above are trees and the top of buildings. Most dogs can't climb trees, and jumping off of the top of a building wouldn't go over well for the attacker. Not being able to swim can only really apply if he gets in water over his head, and most of this tournament will take place in the middle of a city.

We're going to have to ask you to reconsider his weaknesses in order for them to balance out his strengths.

Much better but there is still one point of concern. Weak hearing is a valid weakness but it doesn't make a lot of sense to attribute it to the bandages on his ears. They wouldn't impair his hearing that much. It's like you putting a sheet over your head. You could still use poor hearing as a weakness for him, I just wouldn't blame it on his bandages.

That'll do, just remember you can't start your audition until we have both your ref and your partner's.
