Hunting in the Silverwastes for some weakened prey is this hyena´s greatest passtime. Sometimes she also likes to play with her food. She surely always has the last laugh!
When Mordremoth interferred in her domain, Shenzi surely wasn´t too thrilled to see hordes of adventureres rushing into her precious castle of solitude, erecting forts everyhwere and trying to slay the Vinewrath. Reluctantly, she joined the forces, just to ensure that these adventurers would leave her and her pack alone again.
While long nights at the campfire she enjoyed their company more and more though - heck, she even felt bad that she had robbed some of them of their valuables a few hours ago! When Shenzi is now seen in the company of the new intruders, she is often seen with a heartfelt laugh on her lips - although, who knows, she always had a twisted sense of humor.

While playing around with Charr face and hair, I realized that this particular mix really much resembled a hyena. As this was a kind of animal I rarely see represented in Charr, I decided to make a look around this concept. While her furpattern surely is her strongest point, I tried to make her armour look a bit more feral and ragged. Showing off a Charr´s fur is something I prefer, as I always think it´s a shame having to cover up their fur; hence I went with the Braham top.
I know the legs are not THE most feral part, but the don´t do any weird clipping and I figured she might even have received this as a gift while helping to defend the keeps with the Vigil.
I just liked the synergy of the weapons and seeing that this is a desert-like, dry look, I incorporated it into my look.
Shenzi from The Lion King surely played a big role in the realization of her concept.
I hope you enjoy her! ^^


Cool armor combo, and cool fur!

Great colors and weapon choices :)

I don't know if charr necessarily have it rough on this site, there's not a lot of exposure due to the lack of population, but then there also aren't a lot of charr that explore fashion, either. It tends to be more of a human female thing ;)

Wow, the coloration you've chosen for your Charr is amazing. I actually wish we had the ability to show what options were used there.

The top and leggings work wonderfully together, I'd been itching to see them in tandem. I love how you matched the scalloped look of the warband boots by using the grasping dead gauntlets.

And the colors, usually sticking to exclusively neutral tones washes the look out to me, and I struggle in employing them, but you've managed to utilize them in a way where this doesn't happen.

I really admire this, Charr don't see a lot of activity and can be a challenge to pull off a decent look for. This execution is masterful.

I love her fur! Great look! I'm not a fan of Braham's chest armor, but on the other hand it fits the look. :)

It's fantastic when people try to match their charr looks to real animals, and this is done wonderfully, that alone gets gold, but there's a bitchin armour on top! Awesome work.

Ooh. I'm only just now realizing that you're the creator of a lot of my favorite looks.
She looks great! Very unique, too. I've never seen anyone use that face, and rarely that hairstyle. You made it work wonderfully.
