Hate is ravening vulture beaks descending on a place of skulls"
-Amy Lowell


A Ravenous Predator

Another one drops. His cold body hits the ground like a tree.
A single body, in the alleyway of a busy yet somehow lonesome end of the city. Does no one notice? Does this man not belong to someone? Was he forgotten as quickly as death took his last breath?

Maybe no one cared.

The faint glow of streetlights illuminate the narrow alleyway while the industrial buzz of the city fills the air. Suddenly a shadow is cast down upon the grim scene and a delicate creature glides it's way to the ground. It rustles it's feathers as it extends it's long neck down, as if to get a closer look at the body laying on the frigid asphalt.

....

The creature pauses for a moment. It's beady eyes gradually scan the body as it inches closer. The creature shudders as if it can feel the pain of the man's final existing moments.
As if with reluctance, the creature swiftly begins consuming the body. It's beak tearing shreds off as it's head whips upward to gobble the pieces down.

It was like a ravenous vulture.

Throughout it's feast, this seemingly savage creature couldn't help but look like it was experiencing great pain. Perhaps consuming the flesh of such a vile body left it with a lasting burden.

INTERPRETATION

It was love at first sight

Corny yes, but it was love at first sight.
I saw Qhaa UFT around the PC and swooned over his name and paint, so when he became UFA I knew what I had to do~
His character was inspired by two things, one of which is the song 'Wait' by M83 and the other is the main character, John Coffey, from The Green Mile.
This may seem like an unlikely pair up, but the basis of his character is that he's an entity (in the physical form of a vulture) who cleanses the world of hate.

Energy is neither created nor destroyed. The negative energy released when death comes upon mankind must be consumed or it will deplete the physical world.
Qhaa feeds on the flesh of mankind, and absorbs it's negative energy. From there he must find ways of expelling this hate or it will begin to take him over.

Appearance

Qhaa's customization has actually been sort of difficult for me. I want to showcase his nature without making him seem too grotesque or malevolent.
My initial idea was to put him in death's abode itself and give him kind of a cemetery/sinister layout. However I found this to be a bit predictable and cheesy for a character that is so obviously associated with death.
I've decided to equip him with the following (I would have used the picture from DTI but unfortunately the flash image seems wonky :S ):


I like the melancholy atmosphere of this setting along with the piercing red flowers, I think they represent optimism and perhaps a peek at happiness.

Other background ideas (without the red flowers of course) would be:

As for his Petpet, I plan on getting him a Halloween Vullard:

The only problem is that I can't find a vullard anywhere on the TP or auctions, so until one comes about I might have to give him a different temporary P2.

Why + Plans

I was drawn to Qhaa mainly because of his name. I pronounce it like 'Kaw', which I'm sure is pretty typical.
He's a sort of menacing, miserable old bird who constantly seeks out peace, tranquility and beauty in order to ease the hate that lies inside of him. I enjoy this take on him because I find it very relatable. As humans, I find that our major downfall is our ability to channel such negative energy and take it out on others. Deep in our cores, I believe everyone seeks out peace in life.

I plan to develop his character and art. The little sketch I included above is an example of my art that will be included on his lookup, more examples can be found HERE. Most all of my permanent pets have lookups and I've recently started petpages for a handful of my characters.


Home

Is where the heart is

  • Name: Emily
  • Age: 20
  • Account: 5
  • Been on neopets for: 10 years

I have 5 accounts, which are listed below. Each account has a sort of 'theme', though some are still in development.


My main account is tootsieroll89, not that I strictly only play on that account. I use it for my main because I have my shop, and most of my contacts there and switching would be too much of a hassle at this point.
I plan on keeping Qhaa on aleclightwood, which has a central theme of me reflecting on life a little too much.

Fam

These are the pets that Qhaa would be placed with. I think this account is the most suitable for him because my characters here are so whimsical.


Aedini
Aedini is named after a classification of mosquitos (Tribe: Aedini). This particular tribe houses some of the most dangerous, disease vectoring mosquitos. I traded a RN desert quiggle for her custom and quite honestly could not have made a better downtrade XD. She's a grotesque yet intriguing bug, most of her art portrays her in a gas mask. She lures people into her beautiful array of flowers, getting them high as they inhale toxic gases before passing out completely.


Psilocyban
Okay, just to clear things up NO I'm not into hallucinogens. I honestly don't know why I named him this...It was lutari day and I felt the need to make one. I have quite the interest in the hardwiring of the human body and in particular, the brain and nervous system. Psil is my representation of the brain in it's dream or hallucinogenic state. He is a tweaker who gives people ridiculously high amount of hallucinogens (kind of like Aedini but less sinister).

Listeriosis
K. No. We're not talking about this. I made a terrible mistake and zapped my beautiful lenny, hoping he would turn shadow or transparent and now he's a chia rock. Yay. Anyways. I'm saving up and hoping to morph him by hand seeing as the lab is so obviously useless. He is a plague doctor lenny (original, I know) who tends to a graveyard. It's said if you see him after hours in the cemetery you may soon be facing your fate.

Me

Well, I'm a 20 year old undergraduate. I go to University and currently study biological sciences but am applying to specialize in Immunology at the end of this semester.
My passion is virology because I find it humbling that an organism so microscopic and simple can cause so much devastation. I also madly respect the scientists and virologists who develop cures and vaccines against these little devils.
Aside from school I love being that typical 20 year old, hanging out with friends, working, scuba diving, music, getting into shenanigans.
I also have an unconventional love for insects! Here are some pals that I get to work with in labs from time to time~


Thank You~

Thank you Caitlin, for the chance to apply and for taking the time to read through my application.
Of course I hope I get chosen to adopt the wonderful Qhaa, but I congratulate whoever you choose to take in this wonderful character.
Peace, love and happiness to all~
