Appearance:

Melino is an anthropomorphic red fox with a slim physique. His main fur colour consists of a gradient that goes from a dark orange at the head to a light yellow and beige at the tail tip. Additionally, the inside of his ears, his snout, eyebrows, cheeks, the fur around the eyes, neck, chest fur, and the undersides of his paws are also beige. Furthermore, there are two pointy brown stripes on each of his upper arms and three on his waist. He also has brown claws on his hand paws, a brown nose and he has orange paw pads (beans). His eye colour is a blend of orange and yellow colours. Melino is a very unique being that is partially made of honey. This is only possible thanks to his special magical powers. He has the ability to switch between two forms: his solid and his viscous form. In the former, his body structure is ordinary, but in the latter, it is as viscous as honey. This means that he can then squeeze through the thinnest slits or holes. His fur is also sticky like honey only in this viscous form; in his solid form, his fur feels completely normal, even though it looks like it's covered with honey. Melino is always surrounded by his friendly bee friends and never leaves his home without them by his side

 

Character Traits:

  • Sweet (in any way)

  • Diligent

  • Empathetic

  • Placid

  • Polite

  • Patient

  • Careful

  • Connoisseur

  • A bit coy

  • A little introverted

 

Abilities:

  • As already mentioned, Melino has the ability to switch between two different forms: His solid and his viscous form. In the latter, his body structure changes to the extent that he is able to go through the thinnest gaps and smallest holes

  • Regardless of the form, he always smells very sweet, like fresh honey. His scent is so delightful that the creatures around him feel completely relaxed and revitalized

  • When he is in his viscous form, some of his honey can be nibbled without harming him in the process

  • He has many bee friends, and entire swarms love spending time with him. Moreover, he is able to communicate with the bees, and he gladly shares his honey with them, which his body can autonomously produce with the help of his magical powers. For some swarms he is even considered as their king

  • He can produce and emit light form his whole body. That way he can lighten up the night in many different colours

  • He has the ability of speech and he speaks and understands many different human languages of our world. Of course he is able to interact with his fellow species and other animals and creatures. He can even translate to a certain extent

  • He is a fantastic cook and baker. He can prepare the most delicious treats, and he always puts his full effort into it. He is especially good at baking. Anyone who consumes his sweet treats automatically feels much better and happier afterward

  • He is a very polite and empathetic creature, who strives to ensure that all the beings around him are doing well and feel comfortable and secure in his presence

  • He is able to see in the dark and, unlike other foxes, he can see almost all existing colours

 

Weaknesses:

  • Bees are very important to Melino and he is good friends with a lot of them. Therefore, he constantly worries about his diligent little friends and wants everyone to be well, which, unfortunately, is not an easy task with so many bees and also not always successful. This is a fact, that often makes him sad and guilty

  • He can't simply "turn off" his sweet honey scent, making it difficult for him to hide for example

  • The transformation doesn't require as much energy as it does for other creatures, but he still needs a short recovery time of several minutes between each transformation before he can transform back into his other form. In his viscous form, his coordination becomes a bit more challenging, and since he is quite sticky, he always has to be careful about what and whom he touches

  • He can become somewhat self-critical if something doesn't turn out as he envisioned, especially in cooking and baking. In those moments, he keeps trying until he finally succeeds. He always wants to please everyone, which is not always an easy task and can sometimes stress him out quite a bit

  • He can be quite reserved and cautious in certain situations, especially when meeting new beings or preparing something for unfamiliar creatures

 

Likes:

  • Bees and other insects

  • Flowers and other kinds of plants

  • His friends and his boyfriend Gelato

  • Cooking and baking

  • Good food and sweet treats

  • Making others feel comfortable, well and safe

  • When things go as planned and imagined

  • Occasionally taking some time for himself

 

Dislikes:

  • Hurt, sick or other suffering creatures, especially bees

  • When things don't go as planned, especially failures in cooking or baking

  • Bad tasting food

  • Not being able to make every single creature feel good

  • All kind of violence

  • Impoliteness and bad behaviour

  • Irreverence

  • Hate

 

Further Information:

  • He was born in the Land of Eternal Dusk a mystical land which is full of magic and fairy-like creatures. As the name implies, the land is in a state of eternal dusk. It is a very beautiful and peaceful place

  • In every land you can find the following rule: Every strongly marked anthropomorphic creature is actually a human being from either a different dimension and/or time, that's why these creatures are more human-like than other beings

  • He is anthropomorphic and thus very human-like, but can still do typical “fox-like” things like digging, making cute and funny sounds etc.

  • He and every here presented Land of Eternal Dusk resident are good friends. He is madly in love with his boyfriend Gelato and vice versa. They love spending time together and both share similar hobbies

  • Melino is a cis-male and homosexual

  • He has an entirely vegetarian diet, even though he is a fox. His favourite foods are vegetables, fruits, nuts, and sweet treats
