Chernobyl Cur 2 by ShadowStealthWolf Chernobyl Cur 2 by ShadowStealthWolf
And here is my second fellow for :iconchernobyl-curs:
He is the brother of my first: Rakta-pa.
NOTE: Berserker will not be fighting in the tournament. (I will explain when I get to it in the story.) He has a condition set on him where he is allowed to observe only and if he intervenes in any of Rakta-pa's fights then his brother will be disqualified.

Name: Berserker

Breed Base: Mostly Beauceron with a touch of Doberman (just like his brother)

Age: 3.5 years

Gender: male

Abilities: Much longer than normal claws which, with the right application, can cause serious damage. Berserker can fly into what is called berserkergang at nearly any moment (does require a stimulus). It is a state in which he attacks everyone around with more strength than anything imaginable. However, in this state he cannot see friend or foe and the only one able to stop him is his brother. This is due to head trauma he acquired in his attempt to rescue Rakta-pa from getting hit by a car when they were younger.

Strengths: Very physically fit/strong, a tad moreso than his brother. He has sharp ears and is always on the alert - especially for his brother's sake. Likes to use strategy and thus has a keen eye as well.

Weaknesses: From the same accident mentioned earlier he sustained a hip injury and his left back leg can cause him issues when overstimulated or aggravated (hit or such). He shares the same issue with Rakta-pa when it comes to the double dew-claw but has a harder time of it due to the elongation of his claws - which causes hip to trip more in cluttered areas. Also, his right haunch has some scarring from road-rash caused by the accident.
There're also the hallucinations caused by his head trauma. He occasionally sees or hears things that aren't otherwise there to anyone else and this can cause some interesting situations.

Personality: Berserker's personality is actually opposite his name. He retains a calm attitude in an attempt to counter his berserkergang outbursts. This makes him much easier to approach than his brother and quite a bit more initially accepting of a respectful other. Though, like his brother he does love to fight - even if he is a bit more of a strategist when it comes to it. He likes his brother's company and doubtless would stop anything from happening to him if allowed. However, it's not unlikely to find him training on the things he can do.

History: He was hit by the same car his brother was in the attempt of saving him. His head hit the ground causing trauma which was the starting point of his berserkergang and hallucinations. Also, this incident caused his hip problem, thus limiting his agility by not allowing him strong jumps. Otherwise he had a normal childhood with his brother, learning how to fight and hunt.

Likes: His brother Rakta-pa, open fields and the moon, the rain (because he likes the smell of fresh wild things), fighting

Dislikes: getting caught on things, obnoxious people and colors, being pegged as weak

Other: Berserkergang is NOT a plus. Berserker hates it and that's why his personality is so much more non-confrontational. There are tip offs that send him over the edge and the last thing he wants to do is hurt those whom he has befriended - as has happened before. Though he does enjoy fighting, this attitude makes him an effective strategist so he can overcome his opponent quickly and effectively in order to prevent berserkergang, or at least attempt to keep it from occurring.

Truthfully? I have no clue. I tried a first page (for a comic) in Gimp, but I apparently suck at drawing on my tablet so much that I found myself sketching in my sketchbook. XD So I dunno if I'll write and accentuate with pictures/comics or what. Any suggestions?

I'd definitely love to try, but I think I'll need help (and more time) because I've never done one before. As in a serious, continuous one. (And I definitely love drawing and want to draw these brothers. I'm rather taken with them.)

Alright, this ref needs a few additional weaknesses. You list his berserkergang mode as a weakness, but it sounds a lot more like an ability than a weakness, especially since Rakta-pa can snap him out of it. You should move this to abilities, and since the whole thing with the double dew-claw really isn't a weakness (where are they going to find string to get tangled in in a long abandoned city?) you need to give him at least two, maybe three additional weaknesses to balance him out.

Right, I understand about the ability thing for the berserkergang. It makes sense. However, the brothers relation is a bit more complicated than I can easily describe. The only reason Rakta-pa is able to focus him during his "rages" is because he was there when the initial trauma happened and they have such a strong bond.
Yet, thank you for letting the tangling thing get by on them. It's not just string though. There are plenty of things in a rubble strewn, overgrown abandoned city to get tangled in. (Downed power lines, ivy vines and so on) But I may have an idea for one weakness, if it would count as such: hallucinations. Due to the head trauma he endured, he may see things that aren't necessarily there. This could cause some... interesting situations, to say the least. (though I realize this is not a physical weakness).
To tell the truth I'm somewhat stumped on what else to do for a weakness.
