Raker Character Sheet by Kelaiah Raker Character Sheet by Kelaiah
Oh, let's see, where to begin? Well, let's start with this:

I was going over all the Kotir soldier characters that I would have to design, and realized that I could save time in making three of them look like the 'background soldiers' that I designed, simply because these three characters are very minor.

Of course, they would have little details about them that would set them apart from the background soldiers, but other than that... well, let's get on with this.

Character Bio: The only ferret captain of the Kotir army, Raker was notorious for hating squirrels, particularily because of the way how they'd disappear into the trees. During the time when Martin and Gonff were escaping from Kotir, Raker tried to lead a bit of the army against the squirrel archers, only to be driven back by javelins, arrows and slings. Little else is known about him, we don't even know whether he died or not; though logically speaking, its possible he died in some random battle, because later on its mentioned that only Brogg and Ratflank are the remaining captains, even though Raker's death is never shown.

Description of pic: As you can see, Raker looks just like the background ferret soldier, only he's wearing a "captain's tabard". You might also notice that I neglected to give him a cloak, but that was intentional:

In the book, the only captain's cloak that's ever talked about is Cludd's, and Cludd was the highest-ranking captain. So I figured I could distinguish the captains by giving their tunics black trimming, and Cludd would be further distinguished by having a cloak as well.

Disclaimer: I own nothing, except all the hard work and imagination that went into this. All else belongs to Brian Jacques. Its also inspired a little by Nelvana, though I think this ferret design looks different enough from Nelvana's ferrets. But oh well, I digress. ;)

Enjoy, and God bless. :)

Well, this is what I spoke of earlier, and I guess it came true. Well, regardless with Diversity, this shows everything is making progress. :)
