SH App - Oterma by TamarinFrog SH App - Oterma by TamarinFrog
For :iconsecrethideout:

The new group character I mentioned! Heck, not everyday you get a chance to make a legendary character so no way I was gonna let this opportunity slide! Legendaries man! Legendaries! So say hello to 39P/Oterma! She is my first, well... kinda jerkish RP character so she should be interesting to write if I get in. At least she was tons of fun to design and she made me love deoxys!

:bulletorange:Name: 39P/Oterma
:bulletblue:Nickname: Oterma for short
:bulletorange:Age: Seems 25
:bulletblue:Birthday: July 11th
:bulletorange:Gender: Identifies as female

:bulletblue:Nature: Naughty - Not behaving in the way they are told or in the desired manner, disobedient-

Personality: Oterma is... How would you say it? Very self-assured. And by that I mean cocky and and even arrogant. She has very competitive spirit and she is always there to prove her abilities. Even when the odds are against her. She rarely listens to anyones' advices and usually replies to these with snarky remarks. She has very little respect for traditions and she rarely follows rules. She is not mean because she finds it funny but after spending millenniums in space in inanimate state, she is not wasting her precious time and patience (the very little she has) with people/pokemon she doesn't find interesting. Oterma LOVES racing and is very proud of being the fastest thing on this planet (so far). Best way to get on her good side is to have a good sense of humor and not to take things too seriously or give her a decent challenge in a race (or in any competition). If you manage to to catch her interest, you know you got a friend who makes sure the fun never ends (if you are into her type of "fun").

:bulletorange:Species: #386 Deoxys (speed)
:bulletblue:Ability: Pressure - When this Pokémon is hit by a move, the opponent’s PP lowers by 2 rather than 1
:bulletorange:Habitat: Sky and Ozone Layer

"Earth... Was there a reason I landed here?"

How long had she been traveling through space? Centuries? Millenniums!? She did not know. She was a simple alien virus, attached to a comet, flying around space. She was somewhat aware of her existence but couldn't do much. How boring is that?! Not much to do right? Just fly on your eternal route around nothingness... But it all changed when an unexpect obstacle came in her way. This obstacle, was Earth.

She fell on the blue planet. At first, nothing seemed to happen but soon Earth's atmosphere created a mutation within the virus. First, a jewel was born. This purple core seemed to be the aware and act like brains. Soon, the mutation continued and a body was born around it. It was a new form for her, deoxys! Deoxys admired her new body. She was now able to decide her own destiny. Go where ever she wanted. She wanted to explore this new planet. Thus, she flew away in high speed.

At first, the deoxys was ecstatic. Her new body was amazing and so fast. Nothing was able to catch up with her. This built her cocky and competitive attidute. She spent hundreds of years traveling around the Earth. She learned how this world worked. She saw creatures called humans and their companions called "pokemon". That is when she learned that these humans classified her as a pokemon too and she had this "special" status among these creatures. She even met some other pokemon that were given this "legendary" status like her. Though she never really gave them much thought or respect. These beings were usually too attached to their spirit duties which bored her. She couldn't relate to that. She had no special purpose or connection to this planet's spiritual world like them. She just happened to land here by accident. Or was there a divine reason? She didn't care, she only wanted to have fun and do things her own way.

Over these years deoxys kept traveling around the world but she always returned to her meteor on her birthdays (the day she landed on Earth). There she reminisced her earlier life in space. One day though, she found out that the humans had discovered her meteor and named it 39P/Oterma. Deoxys was somewhat flattered and she decided to adopt the name. Around now humans had started to evolve and build their society. Oterma followed this development curiously. Little did she, or the other legendaries know that this was the start of their end.

Humans grew fast. They started to spread. They started to build. Where there were once forests, there were now cities. Where there were once beautiful lakes, they were now polluted. Everything what was once sacred were no longer. The legendary deities, that were once so respected, were hunted for their powers. Oterma looked at this sight in displeasure. What fools! Don't they see they will destroy themselves and this planet at this rate?! Such stupidity frustrated her. But she didn't do much about it. I mean, this place was not her home. Even though she was a pokemon, she was still an alien too. Maybe it was time for her to ditch this place and find a new planet.

One day when she was flying through the Ozone layer and thinking if she should just leave, she came across a rayquaza. An old "friend" of her that she used to bug and challenge in races. He seemed to be in a hurry somewhere. Oterma grinned and hastened next to him."Hey dragon breath! Where in such a hurry? Compared to your usual speed, this is almost respectable!" She teased him."Hmph, joke as you want but I am certain you have seen what is happening to this world." The green dragon said. "Humans have forgotten about us and it is our time to leave." The deoxys tilted her head. "Leave, where?" The rayquaza had caught her interest. "There is a new place, paradise they even say, created only for us legendary beings. We are all going there." Oterma raised her eyebrow."A place for legendary pokemon only? Hmm..." She repeated and pondered rayquaza's words. "Maybe I'll check it out! I mean, you guys are the only ones who can give me a decent challenge!" She finally said with a cocky grin. "Show me the way dragon breath!" She yelled and put on her goggles.

She was willing to give this planet one last chance.

:bulletorange:Summary characteristic: Likes to run fly
• Racing and competing - Oterma has a very competitive nature. She will accept almost any challenge.
• Creating auroras on night sky - On those rare moments when she is relaxing, she creates auroras to calm herself down.
• Collecting pins and accessories. - Oterma likes to collect accessories and change the pins on her vest.

:iconpsychictypeplz:: Psycho Boost - Her most powerful move but she rarely uses it because it takes a lot of energy and it lowers her powers.
:iconnormaltypeplz:: Extremespeed - Her favourite move. Boosting her already amazing speed, she hit her opponent.
:iconpoisontypeplz:: Toxic (TM) - An interesting move she picked up on her travels. Oterma can mentally poison her opponents. She then uses her speed to fiddle time and let the poison do the job.
:iconghosttypeplz:: Shadow Ball (TM) - She creates a sinister ball of energy in her chest core and shoots it.

• She has a tattoo on her blue tentacle.
• Due to her tentacle hands, she prefers to use her psychic powers to pick up stuff and handle things.
• Due to her low defense abilities, her body is weak and gets easily bruised and damaged. One good hit and she is pretty much down.
• However, she is able to regenerate her body if needed as long as her purple core is undamaged. This will take time though!
• She wants to keep her body aerodynamic thus she doesn't wear any big or puffy clothes.
• Like most deoxys, she can create auroras and communicate through them with other deoxys.
• Has VERY little patience and is always hurrying where ever she goes.
• The purple core on her chest is her brain.
• She dyes her hair every now and then thus her hair color is never constant. (her original color is unknown.)

:bulletorange:Fun Facts:
• 39P/Oterma is a real comet, discovered by Liisi Oterma, first female astronomer in Finland.
• Her birthday is actually the date when the said comet's next perihelion is said to happen, July 11, 2023
• Her design is inspired by (cyber) punk style and Tank girl series.

The fastest Pokemon is actually an Excadrill with max speed and the ability sand rush. In a sandstorm, that same Excadrill will have a speed stat of 604!!!!

And also I'm loving on her little details, like those badges and bandages, how perfect for her. Asdfgh, her gogglesss! Goggles are so great, they really make a character haha. :iconjumphehplz: And your style is really so gorgeous, I don't think I can ever get tired of looking at it. It's so pretty and pleasing to the eye, how nice. Also her pose and expression: love. Just so stellar, omg. Especially in that close up, how funny is she! Very sassy, what a great design for an Speed Deoxys! Her tattoo and piercings are super great, too. They really fit a rebellious girl such as herself! :iconwtfaruplz:
Wow, her personality and history are totally perfect, too. <3333 And and and!! Her name is the best thing about her, I would say. It's so pretty and wow, it comes from a real comet?? How cool!

Now this is a badass Deoxys.
You know, despite being "jerkish" she still seems kinda nice, but I'm guessing that's as long as you don't get on her bad side, huh?
She does looks wild, strange and a bit overwhelming (Agreeing to the comment below), but for some reason that makes sense with her, I love it :la:.

Koskish Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Hello, probably much too late to comment on this, and I see you're already in the group, so feel free to disregard the following. Just wanted to toss my two cents as this.

Let me start off by saying I love your Pokémon character designs. You give lovely unique twists to each and every one of them. I'm a big fan!

I can definitely see where you were going with this design, and for what it is, I really enjoy the concept. I think she seems like an interesting character and you've definitely explored her character well it seems. I love tough ladies who don't take no shit from no one.

There are, however, a couple of things I can notice on it; one being that I can't rest my eyes anywhere on her. Her design is detailed, and while those details are a lot of fun to notice, I can't really rest anywhere on it and it makes the design seem cluttered to me. The sleek, aerodynamic lines on her chest and hips are brought to a screeching halt by the shorts, and I find I can't appreciate the design as a whole because I'm busy looking at details.

All these details lead my eye away from her face, the main feature, to the tentacles, and it feels odd to me to be staring at the arms instead of the face.

Another thing I notice is that, looking at her quickly, I can't really connect her with being a speedster. Nothing in her design, besides being a speed form Deoxys, screams that she loves flying fast. I just see a punk-apocalyptic pokémon. Now, I know you can't determine people's hobbies in real life by just looking at them, but it's important that you can read a character's main personality traits just by looking at them!

If I were to recommend how to improve this design further, I would suggest removing a few of the details and instead sleeking up her design to more reflect her being obsessed with being fast. (Goggles are great for that!)

Again, these are my personal opinions, feel free to do what you wish with them.

I still enjoy the idea of her, and I hope to see more from her soon!

And as always, the art is lovely and I love how much your expressions tell.
TamarinFrog Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks for the input! I see your points. I personally wanted to go more with the punk look than the racer thus my choices. I hear your detail point. Deoxys is quite detail heavy pokemon to begin with. Heh, well Oterma is suppose to be that kind of character whose look changes often so I am sure we will see her in little less busy look. Anyway, thanks for opinion.

Wowowowowowow! :iconuguufaceplz: I love her design! This character seems so unlike any of your others - I really adore what a stark contrast there is, here. I love how you gave her so many little charms and knickknacks, too. :XD: That little Wobbuffet button keeps making me grin, and I keep finding something new to gawk at every time I come back to this app. Soooo many details!

Her history's really great, too. I love what a strong personality she has. Can't wait to see more work of this gal! Oterma seems like she'll be a real blast to see around.
TamarinFrog Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2013  Professional Digital Artist

eyestea Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2013  Student Filmographer

And she looks very unique indeed!
KayVeeDee Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Aaah so I know I already commented on this in but I feel like it's worth saying again. Oterma is soo coool! And I'm in constant awe of all the attention to detail you put into her design :0
I think I'm most impressed by how you thought out her history and her name. The fun facts are fascinating :la: I'm a huge sucker for characters with real world/historical links in their stories somewhere

Anyways, Best of Luck! I'm sure that Oterma will get in though. and if we both do I'll be bothering you about rp sometime
TamarinFrog Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Heheh, Thanks again! I had fun when researching info for her name. And yeah! Fun facts and extra bits are always my fave parts in bio apps. XD
