DCUP - Don't Be Shy (Wave Racer Remix)
Alder Redwood is a dog with the power to manipulate plant-life.
Alder is a brown Shiba Inu with a white tuft of fur on his chest. His fur is rough and messy. He has sharp canine teeth used for tearing and shredding flesh. He has one ear folded, his right.
He wears grey fitted jeans with black Converse-brand sneakers. He wears white, generic gloves.
Alder is very aggressive, but he doesn't have it in him to kill someone without a reason. However, he is prone to fighting. If he feels as if he is to kill someone, he will stop and let them be free if they deserve it.
Alder has trouble understanding jokes. He has a very dry sense of humor. He will often try to crack jokes that are only funny to him.
Strengths and Powers
Physical and Mental Strengths
Sharp Teeth - His teeth are used to tear and rip flesh apart with ease. He rarely uses them for anything other than eating, however.
Claws - If ever needed, he will remove his gloves to use his sharp claws. They can dig into flesh about 2 cm deep.
Enhanced Hearing - Being a dog, he can hear frequencies most cannot hear as well as hear things at a further distance. This is very useful for eavesdropping and looking for someone lost.
Keen Sense of Smell - His nose is very good at smelling things. He can smell things from up to 5 miles away if he smells hard enough.
Plant Manipulation. Alder can create, shape and manipulate plants, including wood, vines, plants, moss, and parts of the plants, such as leaves, seeds, fruits and flowers. He can cause plants to grow, move/attack or even rise from the soil and "walk", mutate plants by rearranging DNA structure and revive withered or dead plants.
Alder can use their power for defense and support by growing plants from the ground and make them sprout seeds/fruits/berries, or even to possibly use plant chemicals to heal people or objects or manipulate their properties for a wide range of effects.
His ability may deal a series of offensive techniques on a target. Using the plants as weapons enables him to grasp and strike continuously with vines and roots, project thorns at a distance, and quickly regenerate the withering weapons at his will. Alder can make vines grow and climb around a target's neck, causing choking, or even strike with plants. A more subtle technique is to release damaging toxins and pheromones, affecting targets in which conditions should be treated quickly with ailments.
Alder can also control plants in their altered forms, i.e. concentrated forms, such as cotton clothing/fabric, paper, etc.

Born in a remote forest of Stoneview City, Alder was a highlight in his tribe. He was the prophesied "new generation". As he grew up, he learned about the "new world", or modern civilization, from his older brother Rayden. However, when his tribal leader found out, he refused to let him go. It was forbidden for new generations to leave for the modern world. It meant banishment from the holy realm. This made Alder have a bitter attitude towards his tribe. At the age of 12, his rite of passage had come. He was to sail to the holy island of Maha. He was to do so with his older brother Rayden. But in Alder's mind, he was going to journey to the city of Stoneview and travel to Station Square and meet the legendary Sonic the Hedgehog.
As Alder set off, he finally told Rayden his plan. But Rayden disagreed and was going to return to the island. So Alder told him to tell the tribe that he had been attacked by a "monster". Rayden accepted after some bribery. The two then set off for Stoneview City. As they got to the city, Rayden changed his mind and stayed with Alder.
As the two journeyed into a nearby rural town, the two realized they had no money at all. Being natural fighters, they joined tournaments and fight clubs to earn some money to live off of. As they continued to fight and develop more physically, they discovered their ancestral abilities. Alder discovered he could manipulate the earth as well as manipulate plants. His brother Rayden could manipulate electricity. This created a bitter rivalry between the two, splitting them apart.
At age 16, Alder met a hedgehog named Louis. Louis helped Alder control his powers, utilize them, and fully understand them. The two became really close friends and Louis offered the homeless Alder a place in his empty apartment. To this day, the two live together as roommates and continue to remain friends.
