so I said I would be putting up a board of my OCs and here it is!

Para

Species: Parasaurolophus (type of swimmer)

age : the dinosaur equivalent of a 15-year-old

female

character design: Para's main body color is a slightly deeper blue with a paler blue on her underside. she has a single green streak running from her eyes down to her tail. she also has red dots running in an even bed above her green streak from her lower neck down her to where her tail meets the rest of her body. finally her eyes have mild cataracts.

backstory: Para was born the only child of her nest as the rest were taken by a pack of egg-stealers. her parents soon realized something was wrong with her as she often veered off from the rest of the herd. they soon realized she had eye problems when they looked in her eyes and they saw they were faded and grey. as she grew older her self esteem dropped as the other young swimmers made fun of her for needing to be led by her parents and calling her "wandering parry". her only friends were her parents, who were the only ones who cared about her as the children mocked her and the other adults believing they should leave her behind as they believed in a "survival of the fittest" ideology. things eventually got even worse when a pack of sharpteeth attacks the herd and killed several of them, including her parents. as the herd was attacked she ran away until her body gave out. when she woke up she was alone, for the first time she felt truly angry at the world for what it had done to her. it was soon after this she came across Cintha who asked her if she was alright. Para, still angry, snapped at Cintha and threatened her, turning her away. however Para soon changed her tone as she cryed for Cintha to come back, which she did and showed her kindness, leading her around much like her parents did.from this moment foward Cintha and Para were best freinds. they later joined with the herd of various other dinosaurs that was traveling to the Great Valley and met Rotan and his father.

personality: Para is generally quiet and shy, only really interacting with others than Cintha and Rotan when she absloutly has too. she is very embarrased about her eye problems and has to tell others about it when interacting with them. she often worries about whether others will be mean to her or not as well as angering them if she was to say somthing wrong. Para is very jumpy and anxious, she can be easily startled and sometimes cries when she gets very worrisome. she sees Cintha as a savior and loves her as if they were related, rarely wanting to leave her side even when they have the rare chance to seperate.

notable details
1: Para is partially blind, only being able to see shapes and colors. however she is able to see things slightly better when they are up close.
2: she has a massive fear of being alone, even having dreams about wandering the land with no one to help her.
3: Para often speaks in a stuttery and axious voice. 

well, thats my first one, Para! hope you guys like her!
I'll find something better to put here eventually..

alright, here's the next one! (sorry if I kept you waiting, school is like wading through cold molasses, but luckily Christmas break is here!)

Cintha (pronounced "SIN-tha")

Species: Gastonia (if your confused, just think Ankyosaurus but instead of a club tail it has spikes going down the sides of its body and tail, which makes me want to call these a variant of Spiketail but I'm really not sure)

Age: the dinosaur equvolent of a 17-18 year old

female

character design: Cintha's body is divided to two parts, a large upper body of thick black scales that is bristling with sharp, bony spikes and 2 rows blade-like scales running down her tail. her lower body is sand-colored and is not armored, there are also a number of faint scars on her lower body where sharp-teeth have wounded her in the past, the most noticeable scar is a bite mark on her right front ankle.

backstory: Cintha was raised an only child by her parents. her parents had left a larger herd because of a number of unfortunate events (a series of sharptooth attacks, accidental deaths, and a disease forcing several to be left behind) which had led to the herd becoming more cruel and cold-hearted. as she grew up Cintha was taught by her parents that showing others kindness is the greatest thing you can do because, in their words, "we all share this same struggle". Cintha's family  went about the land helping others in any way they could for most of her life. one unfortunate day several large sharpteeth attacked a small herd her family was helping, they were able to fight them off however her parents were severely injured. her parents told her to always keep love and kindness in her heart and show it to others before they died. Cintha stayed with the small herd until it joined up with a much larger herd that was heading for the Great Valley, it was during this time that she met Rotan and they became best freinds, she also became known for her caring nature and her willingness to scout ahead to search for food and water. as she scouted ahead one day Cintha found a young swimmer who had seemed to be lost and alone, although initially hostile the simmer soon broke down in tears and begged her fo help, which she lovingly did so. the swimmer, Para, and Cintha soon grew close as freinds with Cintha taking care of Para.

Personality: Cintha is kind and caring, willing to do anything she can for those in need. she is very empathetic and can tell the emotions of another very quickly. on top of this she is a very good fighter, her race comparable to that of threehorns when it comes to fighting sharpteeth. she is also very understanding, willing to accept others for who they are (as long as they are good and not outright mean) and not go out of her way to change them. she also knows when to stand up to a bully or evil individual and will fight them if need be. she is very loyal to friends and allies and loves to make new ones any time she can. she sees herself as a surrogate mother to Para and loves her as one.


Notable details:

1. often talks to others (particularly those she likes) in a gentle and loving manner, usually calling them "sweetheart" with out even thinking about it. she also calls younger creatures "little one" or "cutie" or "sweetie" and gives them the adjective "adorable"
2. likes to hum or sing
3. very good at calming agitated creatures, sometimes cooing them to sleep
4. has a personal quote "We're all in the same struggle, it's not right to make it worse for others, only by standing togther and caring for one and other can we make this struggle just a little easier..."

well, here is Cintha! I got to admit, she is probably my favorite. (fun fact: Cintha is basically the dinosaur version of one of my other OCs, Mika.)

ok, so, before I start the next one I'm gonna bring up two things...

1. I'm gonna be honest, I believe the RP I've put up isn't gonna go anywhere... its been nearly a month and there have still been no takers, if anyone wants to join and start things up in the future I'll be okay with that but until then I'll be considering it something similar to bankrupt. as for the OCs everything will stay the same just the circumstances of how they joined the Great Valley may change.

2. I'm joining a completely different RP, "A friendship with sharpteeth", this is where my next OC comes into play


Aka

Species: Homo-sapian/Neanderthal hybrid

male

Age: early to mid twenties

Character Design: Aka is average in height and very well built. he has long, poorly kept dark hair and scruffy stuble. he wears a sort of combination of pants and loin-cloth and a pouch that carries his tools made from the skins of sharpteeth. he has skin that has been tanned by years of walking in the sun and is covered in dirt and grime as well as a number of scratch marks and various other scars, some gained by fighting sharpteeth, others from various other accidents.

backstory: Aka never knew his father, however his mother and the hunter/gatherer clan he and his mother were a part of said he was a wanderer who agreed to fight sharpteeth and protect the group in exchange for food, during that time he met and fell in love with his mother and they had him. when Aka was a toddler his clan was attacked by a large group of fastbiters, to buy the others time to escape his father decided to fight off as many his could so the rest could escape and was killed after killing several fastbiters. as he grew up Aka developed a hatred for sharpteeth and became adept at fighting and creating weapons. when he was in his late-teens a large sharptooth attacked his clan and killed several members, including his mother, whom he ate. Aka became consumed with rage and attempted kill the sharptooth, only to be hit by it's tail into a rock and knocked out. the clan left him behind, thinking he was dead, however he woke up and swore to kill every sharptooth he came across. throughout the next several years Aka became a master fighter and weapon maker, specializing in killing large sharpteeth. Aka evetually made his way to the Great Valley, hearing of sharpteeth living in the nearby swamp. this is where the story is to pick up.

Personality: Aka is generally nice, if slightly intense and edgy. he harbors a massive hatred for sharpteeth for killing his family and treats all with extreme hostility. he is very smart when it comes to building traps, weapons and tools, often making them from the bones of sharpteeth he has killed. he prefers to keep to himself, exept for talking to plant eaters to learn of nearby sharpteeth to kill, due to this he has no friends.


notable details

1. he has a large amount of endurance, being able to travel large distances even in uncomfortable conditions.
2. Aka is knowlegeble in geography, often learning of local terrian and using it against sharpteeth in battles
3. Aka is also knowledgeble in wound healing, knowing how to treat cuts with herbs
4. Aka carries a bag that holds various objects he uses, this includes the following: knife made from fastbither claw, a spear-thrower, vine used as rope, herbal leaves for healing wounds, small snacks (usally fruits, bark, flowers, and occasionally small peices of sharptooth meat)
5. Aka carries a small number of weapons with him at all times, while the loadout might change from time to time, there are several constants: a shapened rib bone of a sharptooth (a psudo-sword), a spear (he often quickly makes others to throw), a club made from a rock tied to a sturdy stick (also serves as a hammer)


sorry it took me awhile to make this one, i've been busy 
     

I'll find something better to put here eventually..

Rotan

Species: Longneck (specifically Brachiosaurus)

Male

Age: dinosaur equivalent of a 17-year-old

Character Design: Rotan's main body color is a bright shade of yellow. despite his relatively young age he is almost fully grown, he has red stripes going horizontally down his the back of his neck and spine and dark green eyes. despite his relatively young age he is almost fully grown.

Backstory: Rotan was born in the mega-herd that was traveling to the Great Valley when it was only around a third it's later size. he gained notoriety for being shy even to friends of his family as well as being rather smart for his age. by the time he was around an age similar to 12 human years he had already grown half his size, which later got him popularity among the youth who wanted to be his friends, which in turn gave him more confidence. his confidence wavered slightly when a female longneck he liked explained she did not have feelings for him after he had fended off a bully, thinking it would make her want to be in a relationship with him. after a talk with his father about "taking it slow", he adopted a more stoic, gentlemanly personality toward females, generally doing everything in his power to not come off as having romantic interest though as a result caused him to have low self-esteem. things continued this way until his grand father died in an earth shake accident, whereupon he isolated himself from them in order to let them grieve in own ways without needing to take care of him. it was during this time that he met Cintha one day when they came across each other while wandering around. they soon became close friends and Rotan got her acquainted with the herd. later during that time Cintha introduced Para and the three continued to be friends until eventually getting to the Valley.


Personality: Rotan is smart and kind, with a penitent for humor. he has a large vocabulary and a love of learning new things, specializing in legends and stories. he is popular among the herd for being a perfect straight edge kid, often standing up to bullies. he loves socializing, enjoying long, joke-filled, grown-up conversations either with Cintha and other children or the other adults of the herd. despite all of his popularity and good traits, he harbors a much darker and personal side, one filled with self-loathing, and bitter angst. this is mostly due to the feeling of embarrassment for things he had done in the past as well as a slight bitterness to his father, who usually was very busy as he was a high-ranking figure in the herd as well as being generally stoic and moderately emotionless. despite this he tries to maintain a positive attitude, utilizing his friends to support himself.

notable details:

1. Rotan has a large network of friends, ranging from the young to the old, whom he converses with often.
2. Rotan is very imaginative, often telling stories to entertain young kids.
3. Rotan's mother had left the herd after an argument with his grandmother over her history of past mates, this has caused his father and grandmother to be very intense toward each other, although both of them love him dearly.

whelp, there's the last of the main three LBT focused OCs! hopefully I'll get to use them at some point, maybe I'll write a Fanfic with them, who knows...


one more question, is it okay to put my other OCs here? I'm really not sure if that would be okay or if there is another place for that kind of stuff, another really big problem is that I really have no intent of using them for RPs unless others really have plans like that. its okay to say no! I'll find something else.
