OC-Tober Day 28- TREAT

Thanks to @oc-growth-and-development for prompt

Being a griffin shapeshifter, Karen has the appetite of a large lion, regardless of what form she dons. She is not 100% carnivorous, and having a human form lets her enjoy some stuff that might not be wholly good for a griffin, but a good hot barbeque is definitely her favourite food and it takes a lot to fill her up. 

I figure with a beak, berries, grain, nuts and the like are acceptable for diversity, but as a point of pride Karen enjoys the mystique of being carnivorous. She does not have a high opinion of herbivorous magical creatures or mystics.

Was messing around with writing a scientist view log for a griffin character in my urban fantasy story. Since they can shapeshift, it was fun to imagine the behavioural quirks that might be expressed. 

————————–

Behavioural Distinctions: Despite her origins, C-394 does not operate from a human mindset. Her mental state and behaviour display many mannerisms and instincts befitting an anomalous predator, including:

-Frontal vision- Rather than moving her eyes to follow objects, C-394 follows with her entire head as befitting a creature with avian vision. She also benefits from Tetrachromia as a Gryphon, and so can perceive additional colours.

-Prey- C-394 considers sheep and other herbivores to be a food source, and is likely to attempt hunting again. Her guardian should be fully briefed on the importance of keeping her sated.  

-Food Choice- When presented with a buffet of cheese, chocolate, ham, biscuits and grapes, C-394 ate only the ham and requested more before she was finished.

-Dominance- C-394 will always attempt to appear larger than another individual. In gryphon form she will use her wings, fur and stance to suggest greater size. In human form she is likely to stand or climb on things. Extended eye contact also provokes an aggressive reaction. -Note- Extended eye contact tends to provoke that in anyone. -Kirk.

-Claustrophobia-C-394 becomes stressed in spaces smaller than 25 feet across. This is common among gryphons, though she has little experience dealing with it and is more likely to act irrationally as a result.

-Bunting- When reunited with her father, C-394 immediately headbutted him numerous times to help mark him as hers, a bonding tactic seen in felines, including Guard C3.

-Sharpening- C-394 often scratches matter in either form in an effort to return claws to a sharp state.

-Locomotion- C-394 occasionally crawls on all fours when Veiled rather than usual human gait. Stairs seem likely to provoke this behaviour.

Heads up that this is going to be a two parter, since this would be long as hell if I were post everything at once ^-^;

PART A: Tuft’s Official Reference

Took me a few days to finally get this fluff butt lined and colored, but I’m really happy with the final result! I threw Tristan in after some thought just so there’d be a sense of scale (I headcanon Tristan to be about 6 feet tall, not including his horns). Color and design-wise, I referenced the speckled pigeon and caracal, the latter especially for the ears (for which I don’t really have an in-canon explanation; I just think they make him look distinguished XD).

Part B coming soon!
