Linebeck the Ferret




Linebeck the Ferret is a Sonic Fan Character created by Ryu. He is obviously based upon the character Linebeck from Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass.

Physical Description

A lean ferret who stands a fair bit over three feet tall, Linebeck has a short muzzle with a triangular nose, medium-sized, somewhat rounded ears, and a medium-length, somewhat fluffy tail.

His fur is primarily light French beige in color, with a French bistre facial mask that extends over his eyes (partially beneath them, as well), and down towards the sides of his jaw, as well as a French bistre mark on his chest and a French bistre stripe that runs down the length of his back; his forearms and tail tip are also in color, while his muzzle and inner ears are almond in color. His hair, which is shoulder-length and spikes up at the bottom, is bole in color, and his eyes are Crayola forest green in color. He also has bole facial hair in the form of a small mustache and goatee.

History

Childhood

Making some friends

When he was twelve years old, he came across a young female cat with purple fur, blonde hair, and glasses much too big for her face; she was one year younger than him. For some reason, they instantly bonded. The cat's name was Megan, but she insisted that she be called Ryushu or Ryu. The two have been friends ever since.

Joining T.S.E.P

Linebeck had his first run-in with T.S.E.P when he was fifteen. A protest was under way concerning a massive logging industry called Mobian Lumber Inc., who had plans to cut down Curatrix (which means "guardian" in Latin"), a massive and ancient redwood tree. The giant tree was revered by many old tribes and clans, including the Nature Clan of Mokuhana, who saw Curatrix as "the first spawn of Sucellos, Guardian of The Forest".

Linebeck always had a soft-spot for nature, and became interested in the protest.

Linebeck isn't a terribly imposing figure overall, but he does have a number of tricks up his sleeve that allow him to last surprisingly well in a scuffle. Being physically fit and healthy, he's a fair bit stronger than he looks; although he certainly doesn't possess super strength, he can hit much harder than his lean frame would belie. He doesn't have any specific combat experience, simply fighting via punches, kicks, bites, and scratches; as he is a ferret, he has sharp teeth with strong jaws, and also has small but sharp claws, as well as a keen sense of hearing. He also has a flexible spine, and this, coupled with his great natural agility, make him an agile opponent.

Linebeck is a powerful swimmer, so much so that he can compete with water-dwelling mammals such as beavers and otters; in fact, many people often joke that he's actually part fish (and he himself has made this joke multiple times before). He can breathe underwater for longer than the average ferret, and can even see somewhat well underwater.

Multi-Purpose Swiss Army Knife

Linebeck always carries a multi-purpose Swiss army knife with him. Its functions include;

  • Knife (of course)
  • Lockpick
  • Blowtorch
  • Flashlight
  • Fog machine (creates a smokescreen; great for parties)
  • Tazer

Boat and Grappling Hook

Linebeck owns a small but very fast motorboat, which he calls "SurfSlicer". The boat definitely is small; it can only carry a few people. It has a tiny cabin that only fits one person. Apparently, the boat was designed for speed and stealth, not show.

The boat is incredibly eco-friendly; it runs on water, actually using the water he's on as fuel (somehow!). However, the engine chamber will collect any sludge or debris from the water, which must be cleaned out at least once a week.

He also owns a grappling hook which he pulls out of hammer-space whenever needed.

Strengths/Resistances

Linebeck has no specific resistances to any Elements or energy-types. He is quite fast, and can easily outpace slower foes and evade their attacks.

Weaknesses

Linebeck has no specific weaknesses to any Elements or energy-types. His defenses aren't anything special, therefore he mostly relies on his agility to try and evade potentially devastating attacks. His cockiness often causes him to underestimate his opponents.

Friends and Foes

Friends

  • The Random Rangers -
  • T.S.E.P - "The Society for Environmental Preservation", Linebeck has been affiliated with this rather radical pro-environment group since he was 15. Like all the other members, he had to keep his membership a secret, since many of the S.E.P's actions have gotten them arrested by G.U.N.
  • Razer the Fox - Although Linebeck did not recognize Razer at first glance, it did not take him long to realize that this was his old friend Johnny. Despite having a much different appearance, as well as a new name, he was still the same old friend from before, despite the long absence on Razer's part.

Personality

An explorer and treasure-hunter by trade, Linebeck's always ready for an adventure; in fact, the more dangerous, the better. Although he's rather cocky and reckless, he's loyal to his friends and will fight to the death to protect them. Linebeck has an absurdly stubborn will; he won't give up until he breathes his last. He is noted to be incredibly rude to his enemies, and enjoys mocking them. He's rather cocky overall, and this can often get him into trouble.

Linebeck loves to be out on the water; it's where he feels the most at home. He often jokes that he should have been born an otter instead of a ferret. He also likes to play practical jokes every now and then, but nothing that'll get his "victims" hurt; unless they're enemies, that is. Linebeck also has severe acrophobia (a fear of heights).

Positive Traits

  • Friendly

Neutral Traits

Negative Traits

  • Cocky

Quotes

Notes

  • Two other possible species choices for this character were a raccoon and a lemur.
  • Being a ferret, he will sometimes "dook" (a chuckling sort of noise that ferrets make when they are happy). He's somewhat embarrassed by this, however.
    • He sometimes dooks quietly while sleeping, somewhat akin to snoring.
