And here is my second fellow for
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.
Breed Base: Mostly Beauceron with a touch of Doberman (just like his brother)
Age: 3.5 years
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.
