My newest character spotlight: Greyhorse the spatiotemporal hound!
(Formerly named Wristwatch, now renamed due to my use of horses and greyhounds to design its body and more current head shape)
Though this is more about spatiotemporal hounds in general, I will make a post on Greyhorse specifically if requested, or maybe another day if I have inspiration to.
Very few scientists successfully study these animals, though not for lack of trying. Many scientists have given up observing them om the basis that they make no sense.
One scientist has been blessed (or cursed) with the opportunity to study a small pack of these creatures due to the fact that one in particular - one the scientist named “Greyhorse” - does not appear to be aware that the scientist is not a spatiotemporal hound. All that is known about these “hounds” comes from their sketches and notes, plus a few alleged fossil records.
Though dubbed “hound” by the scientist studying them, spatiotemporal hounds are not related to dogs. Or horses. Or any other known creature, for that matter. Studies have shown that these strange animals have evolved outside of the usual evolutionary chain.
Although, very little evidence has been found to suggest they have evolved at all. Records of them date back further than written record, and circumstancial fossils suggest they have been around longer than the current geological record shows.
Spatiotemporal hounds are characterized primarily by their innate senses of time and erratic abilities to shift one’s perception of the passage of time and space. They do not seem to be aware that they can do this.
Physically, they are characterized by a thin body almost greyhound-like in nature and a head that is something between a dog and a horse, and yet neither at all. It also displays long, not-quite-rabbitish ears, a giraffe-esque mane, a feathery tail-spade, and silver, pupiless eyes. It is possible they cannot see, though no test done has been able to confirm or deny this theory, infuriatingly.
Four long canines are present at the front of the mouth, and do not seem to serve any particular purpose, as the hounds eat primarily apples and other hard or thick-peeled fruits, which they swallow whole.
Though quadripedal, spatiotemporal hounds have a tendency towards standing upright and bounding in kangaroo-like fashion.
Additionally, they only appear to make sounds like the ticking of clocks and other such timepieces. It has not been determined whether this is mimicry on their part or ours.
In general consensus, spatiotemporal hounds are infuriatingly contradictory and it is baffling that the species has not only survived, but thrived for his long.
So on Saturday Ganellon and I attempted to walk a cloverleaf barrel pattern 😋 I was doing all the steering here and the leader was just on a super light lead in case we got stuck, and I miscalculated how much space i needed to turn, oops. The video’s a bit long so i have to upload it in two parts. What do you think, should I try it again next lesson?.
