Khanija the Rhino is a blacksmith that serves the Earth Clan of Temblor.
A stocky, burly rhino who stands close to six feet tall, Khanija has a relatively short, broad muzzle with a thick, foot-long horn adorning the top, directly above her nostrils, fairly small, somewhat diamond-shaped ears, and a slender, medium-length tail ending in a tuft of wiry black hair.
Her skin is mostly umber in color, with a tumbleweed muzzle, while her hair, which is short and always tied back in a bun, is black in color. Her eyes are also jasmine in color.
As a rhino, Khanija has naturally thick, leathery skin, which gives her surprising durability; coupled with the leather and chainmail outfit she normally wears, she becomes a literal wall, able to plow through anything weaker than her and intercept strong attacks meant for her more fragile allies.
She wields a massive war hammer as her weapon of choice; while slow to use, it packs a devastating punch. However, she can be worn down by persistent ranged assault, and isn't very fast, with poor reflexes as well.
She is an adept geokinetic, and wields a mix of offensive and defensive, mid-tier techniques of the Earth Element, such as Stone Edge; her energy-based abilities are quite weak, however. Her horn is deceptively sharp and very sturdy, and makes for a strong, natural weapon; she definitely has the physical strength to toss lightweight foes with her horn.
Khanija is relatively resistant to the Elements of Earth and Electricity (her Earth resistance is somewhat higher, however). Being a blacksmith, she is also much better at tanking damage than her more fragile comrades.
Khanija is weak to the Elements of Wind and Water. Her speed and agility are rather poor, therefore much faster opponents can run circles around her. As she can only really use melee-range attacks, opponents who can reliably attack from afar can wear her down with little risk to themselves.
