He speaks in a Russian accent.
A slim lynx who stands a little over three feet tall, Gerasim has a short muzzle with a triangular nose, thick, drooping fur on either side of his face, large, diamond-shape ears that are Cyberized, and a short, fluffy tail
His fur is mostly gray-blue in color, with a white muzzle, chest, and stomach, as well as black marks around his eyes, a black stripe on the bridge of his nose, and black stripes that extend from his eyes and down his jawline; his forearms and his legs below the knee are also black in color. His hair, which is short and somewhat messy, is jacarta in color, and his eyes are Japanese laurel in color. His ears are Cyberized, and are black and granite gray in color.
Gerasim wears the standard Artika Egg Soldier fatigues, which consists of a bright navy blue parka that has white stripes down the arms and faux-fur trim in the hood, sleeve cuffs, and hem, as well as white gloves, black pants, and charcoal-colored boots that also have faux-fur trim cuffs.
A soldier who honestly functions better in the back lines than in the front lines, Gerasim's primary role is as a field medic; he stays out of the fray and patches up injured soldiers that come to him. His medical skill does not just come into play on the battlefield; he is also the head of the medical bay in the Subzero Glacier Egg Base.
While he does carry a laser rifle for protection, and is quite a good shot with it, he generally tries to not draw attention to himself in a fight, as his physical strength isn't terribly high; he is quite fast and agile, however.
Being a lynx, he has sharp eyesight, a good sense of smell, and sharp teeth that can function as decent weapons in a pinch; his Cyberized ears give him impeccable hearing, to the point where he can hear something as subtle as snow crunching from a mile away. He is able to tune his hearing as well, allowing him to focus on some sounds over others; this also makes it incredibly difficult to sneak up on him.
Gerasim is a moderately adept cryokinetic, and primarily uses low-tier and simple to wield techniques of the Ice Element, such as Ice Shard and Ice Punch.
Gerasim is relatively resistant to the Elements of Ice and Water (his Ice resistance is somewhat higher, however). He is also quite fast, able to dodge slow-moving opponents and attacks with ease. His thick fur also gives him great protection against both the cold and against weak, Ice-aligned attacks.
Gerasim is weak to the Element of Fire and Earth. His defenses aren't anything special, therefore he mostly relies on his agility to try and evade potentially devastating attacks. Being a manipulator of Ice, severe ambient heat can render his powers nigh useless. His thick fur also leaves him rather prone to heat exhaustion, while his highly sensitive ears leave him vulnerable to extremely loud and piercing noises; these can incapacitate him.
Friends and Foes
- The Eggman Empire -
- Artika Egg Army -
A somewhat soft-spoken and passive lynx, Gerasim typically prefers to not fight in the first place, instead focusing on keeping his allies in good condition. He hates the Shiverstone Caves, as the place is quite treacherous, and his allied soldiers have gotten involved in accidents there plenty of times; as a result, the lynx frequently has his work cut out for him.
Despite his allegiance to the Artika Egg Army, Gerasim definitely has a moral code, and he refuses to leave any injured person unattended, regardless of who they are or what their standing with the Eggman Empire is. Even if they end up being brought to the Subzero Glacier Egg Base as captives, Gerasim will still patch up any injuries they have.
