Nefertiti ref by Hinami Nefertiti ref by Hinami
My character for :iconchernobyl-curs:


Name: Nefertiti
Breed Base: Pharaoh Hound
Age: 5
Gender: Female
Height: 22 inches
Weight: 40 lbs

:bulletblack: Swift and agile due to strong leg muscles
:bulletblack: Has strong jaws and so packs a powerful bite
:bulletblack: Quick-witted and a good problem solver
:bulletblack: Sharp eyesight

:bulletblack: Claws are very blunt and nearly useless
:bulletblack: Body is not very strong and cannot endure much damage
:bulletblack: Hearing is weak and she is almost completely deaf in one ear
:bulletblack: Does not deal well with severe cold as she has short fur

Personality: Nefertiti is a loner by nature, though she has no objection to company. She has a short fuse and becomes irritated very easily but can also be very affectionate and loyal to those she loves or cares for. Her weak hearing means that she has to be (and is) very alert and she has honed her sense of smell and eyesight to make up for it. If she believes something is hers she will defend it fiercely but uses brute force only when she deems it completely necessary.
History: Nefertiti was abandoned as a pup and, through some strange twist of fate, she ended up in Pripyat. For some time she lived with another Pharaoh Hound, Akhenaten, who had grown up in the city. He gave her the name Nefertiti, and told her tales of the tournament in which she now finds herself, but he was old and died not long before Nef's 3rd birthday. She has since lived alone in Akhen's old home.

:bulletblack: Food
:bulletblack: Her necklace - this originally belonged to Akhenaten's mate, Cleopatra. Akhen kept it and passed it on to Nefertiti
:bulletblack: Challenges - Nefertiti enjoys to be challenged both mentally and physically
:bulletblack: Herself - Nefertiti is not vain, but rather happy with who she is

:bulletblack: Theives - Nefertiti is very protective of anything she thinks belongs to her. She can't stand a theif
:bulletblack: Her hearing - it irritates her that she cannot hear very well but she tries to shrug it off
:bulletblack: Tight spaces - Nefertiti has claustrophobia, if a space is too tight or small she can become very panicked

:bulletblack: Nefertiti used to call Akhenaten 'Akki' and 'Papa' when she was young, as she couldn't pronounce his full name
:bulletblack: She was nicknamed 'Nef' and 'Neffy' by Akhenaten, she doesn't really like others calling her by those names though
:bulletblack: She doesn't remember her biological parents well, what she does remember is hazy

Thanks, I was trying to find a nice alternate Egyptian name but Nefertiti seemed to fit. Thanks again :)
