Pooka_Character sheet by Aquene-lupetta Pooka_Character sheet by Aquene-lupetta

Another character from my story "Alexandria non in Egitto" (Alexandria is not in Egypt) :squee:
He is a pooka, a shapeshifter creature of the welsh mythology :)

My pooka has got these 4 main forms, but he is often turned into the horse form. Unlike the other pookas he isn't able to speak the human language and to turn into a goblin. For many info read the sheet ;)
His favourite joke is to encurage the "victim" to ride on his back and then to launch it in a lake, a river or in the sea :giggle: Unlike the kelpie he doesn't want to eat the victim, he just wants to make a lot of jokes to everybody he meets :giggle: He totally loves also to scare every person he sees XD

He tries to make that joke also with Alexandria while she's alone, looking for a lost pony. First he was able to "steal" a saddle with a booby trap (well, an inattentive Arthur was convinced that was prepared his own horse, instead he put the saddle on the wrong horse XD) and then he masquerades like Alexandria's horse (Alexandria is pretty inattentive too XD). the girl rides on his back and as soon as she realizes that that one isn't her horse the pooka starts his run. There also Arthur arrives and tries in vain to save her, believing that the black horse is a kelpie.
The pooka finally arrives to the pond but something doesn't work like he supposed cuz Alexandria is too tight around his neck so she just slithers on his head, not falling into the water. The creature is unbalanced because of that so he falls into the pond with the butt ... the joke hasn't a happy end for the pooka XD

He is pretty curious about that girl now and the 2 make a deal: if he does ride the jester on his back without make any joke(the currently jester's horse really hate his rider XD), she will find a complete army as his victim (in the true sense of the word! this will be a new way to "destroy" a enemy army :giggle:). the pooka join the 3 friends and soon he will enter in competition with the jester ... because of jokes :giggle:

(the story plot is in that deviation ;))
