Coloration Palette

Dhow is a large dog, thick-boned and muscular, with a broad chest and a tapering tail. She has a broad head as well, with almond-shaped eyes and cropped ears. Loose skin hangs around her jowly jaw and throat area. Her jaw is slightly undershot and crooked, exposing her bottom canine.

Her fur is short but dense and sleek, a rich reddish-tan hue. She is lightly brindled, with dark stripes distinct against her tan coat. Her muzzle is black, and she has a white patch on her chest. Her eyes are amber with hints of green and blue; unfortunately, this makes them look more like a muddled yellow-brown.

Foul-mouthed, covered in scars, and frequently drunk, Dhow makes a bad first impression on most people. This tough outer shell protects a soft (and sad) center; there's more than meets the eye with Dhow, who is driven to do what's right (even if she uses violent and uncouth tactics to get there).

Starved for affection, she is extremely loyal to her trusted friends but also suspicious of others' motives if they do show her kindness -- often leading to cuss-filled accusations of ulterior motives. Needless to say, those who want to befriend her need to be very stubborn.

Dhow feels and emotes strongly, running the full spectrum of full-body guffaws, loud cheers, hot-tempered outbursts, and inelegant blubbering.
