Fikra means idea or genius in Swahili. :XD: Actually I made this OC (or FC fan character whatever XP)3 years ago. fav.me/d80kb8u I had awkward painting skills back then.
I'm not sure anymore if he's a Lion King OC. XD And I think he's out of story.
Traits: He's really smart! Insanely and abnormally intelligent. He's knowledgeable to various sciences and a number of arts. Engineering, Science Research, Mathematics, Philosophy, Psychology, Chemistry, Technology (i.e. Communication Systems, Pneumatics, Electronics) are all his stuff he's into. He's quite fond of art too, probably literature but not so much in drawing or painting.
Background: Well oddly, he grew up in a human city in Tanzania. He inherited his father's mutated genes which had been inherited by his father and of which from his father's father. Fikra's grandpa was a test subject who had been tested if a nootropic would take effect in enhancing a lion's mental capability. (But now I would be changing the concept since "test subject" could be a shocking and controversial topic) Well I would gladly change it to a time when some nootropic formula accidentally spilled on Fikra's grandpa's food. After his grandpa ate the contaminated meat, a few months later, his mane tuned blue and had human mental capabilities. Well to cut the story short, Fikra's inherited the gene and was born with a blue mane and also Fikra himself.
Personality: Fikra is quite socially awkward. He's fun-loving when he's not busy. But most of the time he's very focused on his work and seeks the most efficient methods of solving his problems. He's finicky and punctilious - always considering all the possible details. He uses esoteric (abstruse, arcane whatever X'D) words all the time and tends to talk about complex scientific, nerdy topics to anyone. He's really sensitive to minor errors. He's easily distracted and always interfering to anyone's problems (this might be a weakness of him). He loves planning and predictions. He can be very confident showing everyone all his assumptions are 99% accurate. He can be very competitive. But anyways, he's really helpful and generous. He tries his best to make people happy. He has a good heart. Despite his social awkwardness, he's also able to empathize and sympathize.
