    Deutschland is an East German shepherd dog. This means that he is smaller and more compact than typical German shepherds of the American or West German strain and does not have a sloped back, giving him a somewhat wolfish appearance apart from his blockish head and big boned body. His fur color is an anomaly however. He has a dilute version of the typical black and tan coloring. Deutschland is what is genetically a liver and cream German shepherd. It means he has no black pigment on his body. His nose, lips, and pawpads are a liver-ish pink color instead of black. His fur is a mottled mess of liver and gold. He has a thick undercoat and will shed profusely during certain seasons. His teeth are rather yellow, due to living in the wild for most of his life now, and his eyes might emit some teary fluid. His eyes are a pale blue that appear most striking when light hits them..

    INJURIES/ILLNESSES: suffering from farsighted vision / weak left shoulder due to falling out of a tree in his youth


    BEHAVIOUR

    treats others very professionally, takes a while for him to trust people

    key traits: stubborn, arrogant, nationalistic, introvert, pessimist, fatherly, thorny exterior, soft interior

    ... no greater gift could be made by me than to give you the capacity to be able to understand in a very short time all that i have learned and understood in so many years and with so many hardships ...

    - was originally based off of aph germany


    - has developed selective hearing and might tune out people he doesn't want to talk to


    - his favorite philosophy book is The Prince by Machiavelli

    - he spends most of his free time investigating jungle plants


    - sometimes followed by a baby capybara Feliciano had dubbed "Deutschland Junior"


    - he feels uncomfortable and lost when his collar is taken off him. the fur around his neck appears very flattened in the area his collar curls around his neck.


    - he is farsighted and in defense, may electrocute people if they approach him too abruptly without warning. farsightedness may or may not turn into complete blindness. as a result, his other senses are stronger and he heavily relies on his nose.


    - deutschland refuses to give himself an official label for his sexual orientation, the reason behind this is unclear, though probably because he does not think it is something of great importance and does not add or subtract value to his character, but he could possibly be described as pansexual, as he has canonically experienced attraction to biological intersex, males, males in female bodies, and females


    - deutschland has strong catholic influences in his early life. while he may believe in some of the doctrines that religion teaches, such as the existence of a single benevolent God, he will likely adamantly deny that he is a practicing catholic


    - following from his upbringing, deutschland always disbelieves other characters who claim they are embodiments or demons or angels of sins or virtues, of if they claim to be a reincarnated god or titan


    - deutschland can speak german and english fluently. he is able to read latin, but is not able to speak it or translate it during conversation. he knows conversational italian and can actually hold out quite well with it, but his pronunciation is terrible.


    - he's really good in speaking a coherent american accent. thanks to many months of hard study and assimilation, he is able to speak without tripping up on his original accent. however, when he is particularly flustered, angry, or lazy, once can notice his germanic accent.
