children have similar bone structures before hitting puberty. if a little boy and a little girl had the exact same hairstyle and the exact same outfit, it would probably be hard to tell the difference.
*wipes sweat* Wooh! Been working on this personal project for about a month now when I’ve had the chance to! This was lots of fun to do. I honestly miss using colored pencils. One of my favorite things to use <3 It’s just King, my fursona dressed as a Black Mage.
It was something he heard from every guard and scientist in
the Southern Command lab—always the same breathless whisper, with a dry-throat
choke of fear and the shaky tremor of disbelief: Monster.
They’d whisper it, and swallow, and then run. That part was
always nice. Humans weren’t a fair fight.
“—yeah, yeah, monster,
you’re not the first genius to reach that conclusion pal.” Greed cracked
his neck, rolling his shoulders where his shield melded with the flesh near his
collar bone. “Words hurt sometimes.”
Dorochet swung in from the left, katana in hand. The guard
hadn’t budged since Greed spoke, and his frozen gun sliced easily in two, along
with a cut of his scraggly gray beard. This jolted the man into action. He let
out a high-pitched whine, then tripped on his own feet as he spun and bolted
down the hall.
“But still, I guess monster
is better than homunculus. Less chance of Pops finding me here.”
Dorochet didn’t answer. He turned, breathing heavy, and
watched. Greed rubbed at his neck.
“You know you’re a real stick in the mud today, Dorochet.
Usually you laugh at my jokes.”
“She’s close,” Dorochet answered. He stuck his nose in the
air, grimaced, and twisted on his heels to the left hall. His sword slipped
back into its scabbard.
Greed followed. He surveyed the walls with muted curiosity. Harsh
fluorescence beat down from overhead. Small strips of lighting lined the bottom
edges of the hall. It was sterile, and white, and buzzed distantly, and
seemingly hadn’t changed from the day he busted in to free his own chimera
“I’ll bet you’ve got some pleasant memories of this place,”
Greed mused. They turned another corner. Empty—not so much as a painting worth
snagging off the wall.
“Oh yeah, the best,” Dorochet bit back. His lip twitched
over his teeth, the hair along his neck bristling. “The antiseptic smell is
Eden was trying to muster the strength to reply when he spoke again, weakly nodding. She hadn’t fought him as he guided her to lay down on the couch, one arm now laying over her stomach despite the blood there. When he returned with it, she finally answered his question. “Alchemist I was sent to learn from… tried to turn… his daughter into a chimera…” she coughed between phrases, head spinning and blood in her mouth. “Pushed her out of the array just in time but got caught in it myself,” she finished, before coughing again, covering her mouth and looking at the blood on it. Her body was still trying to reject the change, but slowly accepting it.
Short Answer: Abarimon, Aegipan, Atosis, Bugbear, Capelobo, Cecealia, Cercopes, Cuca, Gwyllion, Mad Gasser, Onocentaur, Yacuruna and Yowie,
I give you a better answer, these are all the monsters I once used and now don’t. These are the monsters I think are either to similar to other creatures (and no good as upgrades, evolutions or related creatures) or I just don’t like them anymore and found other creatures for their roles and abilities.
