Welp, let's get things going C:<
Meet Darefell. Darefell The Hedgehog (Although debatable in his current state).
Darefell is the type of a guy who doesn't really mind staying in one place and relaxing, he's really quiet and unsociable, but he still doesn't mind exploring, seeing the world, meeting new people... and, as the matter of a fact, the rifts in the fabric of the reality made by the small grey crystal shard he wears on a necklace are a great help in finding new places located in different parts of the vast multiverse.
To a great extent, the crystal on the necklace defines Darefell. For as long as he remembers himself, he had the gem... And, well, it's been about a century. More than a 100 years? Less? He wouldn't be able to tell you if his life was on the line, although when one doesn't age, death becomes a fairly vague concept. However, hopping around worlds, staying alive and young for so long... why exactly are things this way with Darefell?
Truth be told, the crystal shard isn't some simple stone of endless power that allows anyone to use it for free. The gem shares a special bond with the hedgehog. Ages ago, when he, supposedly, was a regular guy, he to happened to find the said gem shard and, right away, it resonated with him with a presence he has never felt before. And, let me tell you, the gem didn't notice the guy because he was the kindest person around. Darefell is extremely fond of different types of knots, of applying tape in peculiar ways, of using scarfs and belts as something more than just clothing. Darefell's burning passion is bondage. He loves tying people up, he loves the muffled screams of his captives, the intricacy of ropework involved, the creativity of gags with numerous layers, he craves binding people... and so does the crystal shard.
The shattered crystal is one of the seven known Desire gems, or, for short, Desires. It has power over people's intimate urges to tie or be tied, it controls the means of restraining in all their variety... and it wants to be protected. Luckily for the crystal, its single shard happened to be noticed by Darefell, the perfect candidate, one possessing such an unbelievable love for restraining~
Since that very moment, the gem lent its power to Darefell, the new keeper of the Bondage Desire.
The newfound keeper was to travel through the multiverse and make sure people are giving in to the somewhat odd fetish. He was supposed to encourage them, to help ones too shy and too make sure people wouldn't get hurt... but as time went on, Darefell started slowly shifted focus to what he wanted to do himself. After all, he's still sharing the love for bondage with everyone around, right? All the excited muffled voiced can't possibly be begging to be set free! The gem didn't seem to mind such a turn of events. As time went on, it started to reveal its new keeper the part of the deal he never signed up for. It began corrupting the hedgehog. The more he used it's power, the more his body changed. His colors slowly faded, his eyes turned black, his spines grew erratic, his tail lengthened... and slowly, yet surely, Darefell was lost in his new way of life, not remembering much of the life before... nor did it really matter to him at this point!
Sure, he might have forgotten his original name, but with the new look, he picked "Darefell", thinking it sounded cool enough, and embraced the power bestowed upon him. Sometimes, even if rarely, he does look back, wondering how life used to be, and, perhaps, even blaming himself for abusing the rock's power... but it's so much fun~!
However, despite his new scary looks and a power to summon restraints and bind people on the spot, Darefell still gets it tough. He doesn't win nearly every fight, he doesn't always sneak into a bedroom with a chloroform rag unnoticed and, most definitely, he doesn't always end up on top, sometimes getting roped up himself (even if he likes being tied up from time to time). Darefell is somewhat of a loser, even with all the power. He has his triumphs, but he has his loses. That's why he aims to gather all the remaining Desire shards in hopes of becoming all-powerful and finally showing the world the ropes.
So that was quite a lot, eh?
Yup, Darefell's here. A guy with a power to tie people up... and a loser of sorts. I can't tell you for how long I've been carrying the concept out and, oh boy, I'm happy fo FINALLY share it with all of you!
This guy's design, of all things, is probably the oldest design I have. Perhaps it could've been tweaked a little, but I've grown too attached to it over the years. Yes, it might look a little... edgy~, but that's partically the point with the idea behind the character. I sincerely hope you like him and I definitely can't wait to reveal more stuff~
Also, a fun little detail, his mouth actually morphs away. That's why there's a no-grin alt X)
With all that said, you'll definitely see more of Darefell and learn more about him and the way his powers work in the future. Take care until then :)
