Name: Rowan

Species: Wild rabbit

Gender: Buck

Age: 2 years

Personality: He is what you could call a no-nonsense rabbit. He can be rough, especially when he expects others to carry out their duties as best as they can, but he is able to act friendly and nice when he is in right mood.

Appearance: He is a big rabbit, quite able to fight against small predators (like weasels or rats). He has dark-brown fur with white underbelly and strip of black fur on top of his head, between the ears. One can also see a few scars on his left side, a reminder of his earlier fights.

Backstory: Rowan was once an Owsla officer in his old warren. The Owsla there didn't have much work to do except raiding farms for carrots and lettuce for Chief Rabbit and his family. Rowan had become fed up with that kind of life, so he officially quit the Owsla and set out to find a warren, where his skills would be put to better use.

I... shall give it a go. :D
(using standard RP questions)

Name: Cayenne

Doe or Buck: Doe

Age: 2 years.

Warren: (Well... whatever we decide to call ourselves)

Personality: Although is rather clever, she constantly misses obvious flaws in plans and seems to lack common sense. Her daring attitude lands her into trouble often, as she constantly acts without thinking. Does not like to lead, but strongly and loyally follows, and has the attitude that a doe can be every bit as great as a buck. She is constantly underestimated and restrained because of her gender.

Strengths: Runner, good at tracking, out-of-the-box ideas.

Weaknesses: Fear of water. No, seriously, she HATES being wet, rain, and will under no circumstances... ever... swim. (At 6-months-old she watched her brother drown.) As was mentioned, she runs headfirst into things without ever thinking about the consequences.

Appearance: Small, and though not completely runtish, many take her rather lightly and expect her to move aside and bow while she's at it. Her most outstanding feature is her eyes- which are large and... bright. xD Since she's never seen real battle, Cayenne is unscathed. Her fur is light brown.

Short History: Cayenne had pretty much been sat on all her life in her buck-favoring warren, and by her first year, she learned that she'd never have a life any more exciting than digging burrows and hoping for the attention of a decent buck. Horrified by this lifestyle, she began to make plans to up and leave- start a warren of her own if she had to (oh, that got a laugh when the others first heard). Still, she's prepared to go out and find herself a life worth living, or die trying.

(Ha. I can imagine the Owsla you described as sitting around all lazy-like looking at one another going, "Hm. What do you want to do today?" "Oh, I tunno. Le'uce?" "Yeah... yeah. Le'uce sounds good. Let's go... go get some le'uce?" Of course, they'd all need squeaky little accents.)

Here are the sheets of my new characters. They won't show up in RPG immediately, but the appropriate time for their appearance will come soon enough. ;)


-----


Name: Dash

Species: Wild rabbit

Gender: Buck

Age: 1.5 year

Personality: Dash is sociable and rather joyful rabbit. He likes to be around other rabbits and to enjoy all the good things that life brings with itself. He usually acts very friendly and respectfully towards others, even strangers, but like everybody he can show less nice side of his personality from time to time.  

Appearance: Medium-sized and while he isn’t a weakling, he is not exactly the type of fighter either. On the other hand, he is a very fast runner with great staying power. Due to this fact he has used to joke, that one of his ancestors had to be a hare. His fur is brown. He is rather handsome by rabbits’ standards, which helped him to attract attention of females in his old warren.

Backstory: Dash lived in what you could call an average warren: not too militaristic, but where existed defined hierarchy. Dash lived a content life, while learning to be a storyteller, since telling tales (or listening to them) is one of the things he greatly enjoys. Unfortunately, because of other thing he enjoys, he needed to leave the warren. Lets just say that some bucks (few of them were members of Owsla) didn’t appreciate Dash’s wooing their does. Not a bit. Therefore, Dash has left the warren with other unwanted rabbit, Runt, and from that time they have been traveling together in search of a new home.



Name: Runt

Species: Wild Rabbit

Gender: Buck

Age: 1 year

Personality: Runt is not the friendliest rabbit you could imagine. He is egoistic, cynical and sometimes (or often) he acts like a jerk. He is usually perfectly willing to use what he has (including his ability as the seer rabbit) to get what he wants at low cost.

Appearance: He is a small rabbit and that’s where his name came from. He is not strong enough to be a warrior and not fast enough to be a scout. Because of that, he learned how to make himself hard to notice, both in a warren and in the wild. He has a gray fur. Runt never participated in any fights, but there are a few scars on his body. They were mostly caused by stronger rabbits that bullied him every once in a while.

Backstory: Since his birth, everybody was quite certain that Runt won’t go far in warren’s hierarchy, if he even manage to survive and live for year or two. He was the smallest in the litter and after few months he didn’t get much weight. Due to this fact, he was often picked on by bigger rabbits, which might have been a cause of his later behavior. Runt would had been almost of no use for the warren, if it wasn’t for his special skill. When there was a danger approaching (like fox hunting nearby), he could see it beforehand and warn the others. On one hand, he could use that ability to make himself more important, but on the other it set him even more apart from the rest. Some of the inhabitants of the warren started to suspect Runt of making bad things happen. Eventually, he was cast out of the warren and from that moment he has been traveling with Dash.

MORE CREATION! :D

Name: Fireweed

Buck of Doe: Doe

Age: 2 years

Personality: Wildly ambitious, and even a bit blind to morals in order to achieve that which she believes is the proper order of things. If a situation so calls for it, she can be wildly flirty if it will help her cause. She views life as a game, and other people (rabbits) as game pieces.

Appearance: Chestnut fur which, in proper sunlight, almost does look like fire, which is how she got her name. In almost every way, she is a desirable doe, except for the fact that she looks angry whenever in thought, and that her eyes a piercing, frightening, and mysterious.

Backstory: Because she was a good-looking, outgoing, mysterious doe, she was rather well received back at her old warren. She was respected simply because she demanded the respect, and it was because of this the chief rabbit chose her for a mate. Though the details are sketchy to us, it is known that she and her mate had a disagreement, which turned into an argument, which then became a scuffle, and blew up into a full fight. That next morning, the chief's body was found in his burrow, and Fireweed was nowhere to be found.



Name: Sage

Doe or Buck: Doe

Age: 1 year

Personality: Sage is a quiet, bookish rabbit who does not very often speak, and there are some who've met her that would swear she is mute. She is thoughtful, sympathetic, and low in self-image, but once one has heard her speak it's hard to believe why. She's bright and down to earth, and a great judge of character.

Appearance: She's small and easily bullied, and she may very well have been killed off by elil long ago, if not for how careful she tends to be. Her fur is a light, cream colored brown, and her eyes are an unusual gray.

Backstory: Sage has lived quite an unusual life- she'd never had a home warren, but rather her parents were a pair of hlessi. She was raised alongside hrair brother's and sisters in a most unsafe environment, where every now and then one of the family would disappear. As it would happen, one fateful night, a lendri stumbled upon the family and found it to his good luck. He killed both of Sage's parents, and the children scattered like dandelion seeds. Since then, she's tried to grow accustomed to warren life, but found it unmanageable. Taking on her parents' lifestyle, Sage is a wandering hlessi, who can't help but feel a bit lonely.

I plan to make one more later. >:D I wonderfully flamboyant buck.

Name: Yarrow

Gender: Buck

Age: 1.5 years

Personality: Yarrow is the nicest guy anyone could ever know. He's faithful, compassionate, rational and kind, though very defensive when trouble strikes and threatens his friends. Physically, he refuses to fight, as his mother was killed in an act of violence. If anything, Yarrow is comical and always brings people in a good mood.

Appearance: Yarrow is not huge, and by no means Owsla material, but rather a normal sized rabbit. His fur is light brown, with dark specks scattered about him, and a soft white underside. His eyes are soft brown, as well, and he's always got a cheerful disposition.

Backstory: As there is no way to subtly suggest the idea, it should be said upfront that Yarrow is an openly gay buck (it does exist among rabbits), and it should not be surprising that, like humans, not all rabbits are accepting of this difference in Yarrow. At his old warren, he was relentlessly ostracized and picked on, other rabbits taking advantage of the fact that Yarrow was a pacifist. For a long while, Yarrow ignored and put up with the mistreatment as best as he could manage, trying to lift himself off of what little friends he had, but when talk of a doe having up and left his very warren, the idea spreads in his own mind. He'd seen the way that does were treated in his warren and could understand why she'd leave, but surely she must've had some place to go to- and if there were any chance of finding it, he'd take it. Having long seen the last straw, Yarrow said goodbye to a few select rabbits and headed out to find a better life.

Adding mine should I decide to join in....I may.
____________________________________________

Name: Arvens
Role: (former) Captain in the Thornbrush Owsla
Age: 3 years
Sex: Buck

Characteristics: Arvens is a no-nonsense rabbit, a trait that earned him his role in the Thornbrush warren. He can be amusing with chortles of dry humor and sarcasm, but typically will not goof around. He is of a medium-large build, which no doubt helped his chances of becoming an officer. All Owsla in the warren had red-yellow feathers in their right ears to easily identify those in charge from a distance. Despite the collapse of Thornbrush due to human involvement, Arvens still wears his feather with pride as he seeks a new warren to call home.

Name:
Waterhawk

Age:
1.3 years

Gender:
Doe

Warren:
Doesn't belong to one at the moment.

Appearance:
Waterhawk is not a broad doe, perhaps an effect of her overall solitary life. However, she is a fair female, seeing how she is able to fend for herself decently enough. She is brown-pelted, yet she has a white locket on her chest.  

Personality:
Waterhawk is a daring and relentless doe. In spite of her young age, she had managed to put up quite a fight against life's challenges. She is independent, but not exactly what you would call a loner. She prefers the company of other rabbits at the best of times, as she is a rather social rabbit herself. She has some experience when it comes to survival. She has several tricks up her sleeve that have not failed her, however she is open-minded and as a consequence she never stops adding new information to her knowledge, even if it means observing and stealing hints from species different than her own.

Name: Dreamer

Species: Hare

Gender: Buck

Age: 9 months

Personality: Dreamer is quite friendly hare, if a bit naive. He is very curious of the world around him, a quality which got him into a trouble at a few times. He might not be a baby anymore, but it can be sensed that he isn't as experianced as older hares. He is willing to learn from others, no matter what species they are. Most of all he likes to listen to the stories of adventures others had and hopes to have some of his own.

Appearance: Dreamer has yet to fully grow up, so right now he is not bigger than average rabbit. Like every member of his species he is able to run almost as fas as wind. His fur is dark-brown with white underbelly.

Name: Sharp-Marram.

Species: European Rabbit, Oryctolagus cuniculus.

Age: Nearly 1 year.

Gender: Buck.

Role: Youngest member of the Owsla in the Innburn Warren.

Personality: Sharp-Marram is a tough, hardy, no-nonsense rabbit, as indicated by his name, of the tough, hardy Marram grass.  Despite his outer characteristics, he also has a hidden soft spot.  There is a doe in the warren whom he loves, called Sloe Berry, but he fears that if he is seen to behave in such a sentimental way to her he will be kicked out of the Owsla.  He has not been in the Owsla for very long, but has already helped to ward off a hawk and a long rival male attempting to mate with does in Innburn Warren.

Appearance: He is surprisingly slender, considering his role and strength.  He has quite dark fur along his back, ears and head but has a lighter, more silver coloured belly and yellow eyes.  He has a few scars on his rump which come from scuffs he had with older rabbits when he was much younger.

Name: Gooseberry

Species: European Rabbit

Age: One Year

Gender: Doe

Role: Wide Patrol rabbit

Warren: Watership Down

Personality: Gooseberry is a confident yet timid doe, she finds it difficult to stand up for herself against people she is close to but is always there to defend a friend. Her morals are quite strong and she had her own idea of what is right and wrong. She is in the wide patrol because she is fast, very fast and has great stamina though she frequently gets teased by the bucks for it. She wasn't born on Watership Down, she was a wondering hlessi and was captured by Efrafa and was among those that escaped with Bigwig.

Apperance: Has chocolate brown fur with her muzzle and stomach a snow white. Her eyes are a pale blue. She is lean and has alot of muscle for a doe.

Name: Arrow

Gender: Buck

Age: 3 Years

Role: No Warren yet, but looking to become a Captain or Owsla.

Voice Actor: Jude Law (Pitch in Rise of the Guardians)



Appearance: Arrow keeps all of his strength in a slender body. He is extremely strong, but has a very skinny torso and long ears. He has rather dark brown fur and a lighter brown underbelly that ends at the chest and comes back around his muzzle. His ears are black at the tip. He has blinding hazel eyes that seem to shine as bright as the stars at night. He has many scars on his ears, head, and neck from fights with other bucks. His tail is torn a bit and a couple of his whiskers have become crooked. His fur is somewhat ruffled around the neck from so many fights.  

Personality: Arrow is as tough as he looks. He has been been in a few warrens, such as an Owsla for Efrafa and Hardstone Warren, but he was always kicked out for getting into too many fights and disobeying the rules. If you get to know him, Arrow can become a loyal companion and guardian, but never get in his way if you're an enemy or from a different warren. He seems to be heartless and cold without fail, but inside, Arrow has a soft spot for anyone he cares about. He isn't looking for a doe at the moment, but when he finally settles down in a Warren, he will probably look for a doe that fits him. He luckily  escaped Efrafa's fate and stayed with Watership Down for a short while, but eventually left due to the lack of action. He is brave and extremely valiant, but lets his bad side get the best of him, for he doesn't let a buck go near a doe even if he doesn't know her.

Name: Kladd

Gender: Buck

Age: 2 Years

Role: Captain Owsla of the Aceroston Warren


Voice Actor: Connor Jessup (Ben Mason in the TV series Falling Skies)

Personality
: Kladd is a rather calm, dependable buck. He is able to take control of any situation, and can easily take care of a warren if needed. He learned his way of leadership by being the Captain of the Aceroston Warren. Unfortunately, his home warren is quite aggressive, and takes place in the shadowlands, they're warren hidden among large rock figures. They don't discuss with other warrens, and prefer War instead of peace. This has given Kladd a hard outer shell on his heart, but on the inside he is still a compassionate soul. He is attracted to a doe named Ravna, who is claimed by the Chief of the warren. He constantly feels a heavy burden for what he does, and without Rayna, Kladd is soon going to try and sneak away from his warren for a better life.

Appearance: Kladd is taller and a bit lengthier than most wild rabbits due to his life with a shortage of food. Yet he still has plenty of muscle, certainly enough to take on small elil. He has dusty brown fur that fades to a darker brown and eventually a soot color at the muzzle and a lighter, off-white underbelly. He has even darker brown fur starting at his nose that goes up his head, covers his ears, and goes down his back and tail in a thick line. Kladd's eyes are a musky, dull green. Some say they even seem to look lifeless sometimes. At the top of his head there's a gray tuft of hair in between his ears. He has an odd, blue symbol on his right shoulder that's a stain left from berry juice. It was used to tell what the rabbit's rank was is his warren. His right ear is somewhat torn on the side and he has a few cuts on his back and legs from previous fights.

Name: Midon

Species: Wild Rabbit

Gender: Buck

Age: 2 years

Role: Advisor of Chief Rabbit of the Aceroston Warren

Personality: Midon is very reasonable rabbit, who doesn’t let his judgment be ruled over by his emotions. This quality helped him greatly in his life and thanks to it he was able to attract attention of Chief Rabbit, who started asking for Midon’s advice. At first Midon was called to do that only occasionally, but soon he became an official advisor of the Chief. Now he does most of the tasks related to managing the warren. This kind of work seems too trivial or boring to Chief Rabbit, who prefers conquering other warrens than running his own. Midon takes his duties seriously and tries to use his position to better the lives of other members of Aceroston Warren.  

Appearance: Midon’s fur is gray in color. His eyes are bright yellow. He is medium-sized rabbit and not a very strong one, which means accepting him into Aceroston Owsla wouldn’t even be considered.

---

Name: Claw

Species: Wild Rabbit

Gender: Buck

Age: 1 year

Role: Sergeant in Acereston Owsla

Personality:
Claw is aggressive and often impatient. His course of action is usually “act first, think latter”. He has become Sergeant in Owsla thanks to his fighting skills, ability to force obedience amongst younger members of Aceroston military and the fact that he is son of Chief Rabbit. Claw expects that once his father stops running, he will be the one to rule over the warren. However, Chief didn’t name him his successor yet, so Claw tries to do everything to prove to his father and everybody else that he is strong enough to rule.

Appearance: Claw is a big rabbit for his age and while he might not be the strongest buck in the warren, he is determined to become one by spending much of his time on training and dueling with other members of Aceroston Owsla. That’s why his brown-furred body is marked with a few scars he got during fights. He has dark green eyes, which usually shine with confidence and pride.
