Xehq is my newest creation and demands so much attention, that I decided to fill out a character sheet for him. Have fun reading this.... or just ignore it, if not interested.
FULL NAME: Xehqyr'na Arazha Nrm'Zulzah.
MEANING: Xehqyr'na The Quick, son of Zulzah.
ACTUAL AGE: 178 human years.
RESIDENCE: The "Navarrha", a huge spaceship.
AGE APPEARANCE: Ummm... in his best (alien) years!
SPECIES: Lemarh, a humanoid species from the planet Lemarhia.
SEXUAL PREFERANCE: Hetero.
MARITAL STATUS: Given but due to his story, ne might as well be single (Explanation follows).
KIDS: One daughter, still a child.
OCCUPATION: Soldier / (fighter) pilot. (Really!) short summary of his situation
Xehq is a pilot and belongs to the crew of a huge spaceship which left his homeworld to explore the space and look for resources. This big ship has a small fleet of little hunter / fighter ships on it, just in case of emergency and Xehq belongs to the ones that fly those machines. It needs very good fitness and reflexes to be able to control these things.
Unfortunately the mission, which aimed to only last a few years, totally went wrong and the motherhip had trouble with a wormhole anomaly and so they ended up far far away from their home planet, never being able to come back home again due to the distance. It would actually take them many many generations to get back, so their search for resources or even a good planet to live was even more important now. Having a woman at home and being a father, this is a very hard situation for Xehq, but over the years he got used to it, even though it still hurts him of course. The incident happened about two and a half years ago.
HAIR COLOR: No hair.
HAIR STYLE AND LENGTH: Well, his kind is hairless.
EYES COLOR: Violet.
HEIGHT: About 1,96 m.
ABNORMALITIES: No, not for his kind. We would find his look rather unusual though: His skin is duo-toned and varies between red and blue (with some desaturated shades of violet in between) and on top of his skull, his chest and his back, also a bit on arms and legs, he has a kind of swirly skin pattern. His ears are pointed , small and close to his head. He has so called "Membrynes" which are bone / horn like areas of his head on his forehead and temples, also there is some of them which look like small horns of a reddish color in this area where us humans have hair. These belong to a complex organ of perceptiopn that his kind has which lets them sense empathically and read the emotions of others (If they allow to) on a telepathic base. Hard to explain actually. Other than that, their visible anatomy is not that much different from our own.
DISTINGUISHING MARKS(SCARS,MOLES etc.): None.

FETISHES: Nothing serious.
S+M: Not his thing.
GET JEALOUS EASY: Yes.
WIFE/HUBBY BEATER: Never! he is way to gentle-minded for something like this.
MARRY FOR MONEY: Not.
FAVORITE POSITION: Lady on top.
OPINION ON SEX: He has a normal sex drive but he misses it of course, now that he is far away from home. Yes, there is ladies on the huge ship as well and for his species, he is a rather attractive man, but he is not the kind of character that jumps into bed with every lady now, that his own family is unreachable. When the heat cycle will get to him (his kind does have this), he might most likely take medication so it goes away without him taking any nerve damage or going to bed with a lady but since there is a few years still until this happens, I cannot say this for sure. (And before someone asks, of course his kind has sex as well when not in this heat cycle but when this cycle hits them, they just HAVE to have sex and are totally driven by this, so that they are not themselves any more and think about nothing else any more until they do it until they are exhausted for weeks, hahaha... But some meds can help with these hormons. If this cycle is not "lived" or "treated", the Lemarh has a very high risk of taking serious nerve damage. Yes, both genders have this.)
Thank you very much for reading!
Sorry for all the typos, I tried my best and will correct the worst ones tomorrow when it is not getting close to midnight.
