Hocico likes to get his nose into everything -- especially food. Raised from birth as a pet, he is very tame, if not always obedient. He knows several commands and speaks a couple words of (Spanish) High Speech himself (his favorite word being "Quiero!"), and often "performs" with Diego.

OOC Assumptions

  • Pronunciation: oh-SEE-ko
  • Meaning: snout
  • Origin: Spanish

Inferni members may assume and reference the following without discussion/asking:

1.  Appearance

With his long tail, prominent snout, and distinctive facial markings, Hocico is a curious creature and often causes those unused to him to look twice. Hocico has dark legs, head, and lower back with lighter markings on his nose, eyes and cheeks, neck, chest, and upper arms. His shoulders are flecked with orange and his tail is ringed with the same hue.

Weighing in at approximately 13lbs (6kgs), Hocico is larger than most female white-nosed coatis but smaller than some of the larger males that can be found in the wilds of southern portions of North America, Central America, and northern areas of South America.

2.  Personality

Hocico is incredibly curious and insufferably nosy. Lacking boundaries, he can frequently be found digging into the belongings of the coyotes he lives with and has no sense of ownership. Therefore, he will steal things from others without batting an eye, especially if the item is edible.

A friendly and social creature, Hocico loves being in the company of others. That said, he distrusts the clan's ravens and refers to them as malos p├íjaros — "bad birds."

Though he greatly enjoys "performing" with Diego, Hocico is not good at taking commands and actually prefers to ignore his handler when told to do (or not do) something. This may make the coati seem unintelligent but Hocico is anything but. In fact, sometimes he's too smart for his own good and can find himself in a great deal of trouble because of it.

2.2  Likes & Dislikes

3.  History

  • Hocico was raised from birth as Diego's pet.
  • When Diego decided to set out with his companions for places unknown, he brought Hocico along with him. They eventually joined Inferni together in March 2016.
