Slick belongs to an alien race I invented some time ago. He's a hermaphrodite but I refer to him as "he" just because there's nothing feminine in him. What I like about this OC most is that he can be easily inserted into any space opera universe like Star Wars, Futurama or Invader Zim. I'll probably draw some comics about him.
Alien - from Secchoria (pronounced with [k]), a warm and humid planed covered with jungle
Reptile - a specimen of an omnivorous oviparous hermaphroditic warm-blooded reptiloid race
Fidgety. An average young Seccorian is nearly 2 meters tall, quick and agile, with a long and extremely flexible body. Their lower limbs also have thumbs and are capable of grabbing things, allowing them to climb really fast. All these traits help reptiloids explore the world, because they are very curious and thirsty for adventures. But their curiosity rarely kills them because they have an ability of regenerating not only tails but whole limbs – until they’re old enough to steady down.
Sensitive: the head-tails allow a Secchorian to hear and even feel other creatures’ emotions. The older a lizard is – the longer the lekkus grow, the more sensitive he becomes.
Can’t keep a job. Slick is as irresponsible as any young Secchorian. Their planet produces plenty of food, so everything is free and noone has to work for living. The problems began when Slick left his homeworld to explore other planets. He finds a job occasionally but gets bored with it after a few hours.
Thief. He still needs to eat something, doesn’t he? He’s really good at stealing but he doesn’t usually take anything but food. Secchorians have no sense of property and don’t understand it.
Homeless. The only thing in the world he owns is his space uniform (any Secchorian gets it for free when he leaves his planet). Currently he stays on a small spaceship with a fellow reptiloid, but once they get bored with each other he will leave it and stay wherever he wants (they're not capable of developing strong relationships). He’s got no problem sleeping on benches, in vents and simply on the floor.
Messy. Just look at his clothes – it gets dirtier and more ragged with every adventure and he doesn’t even bother to mend it!
I like lighting effects and shadows so much yet I suck at making them

*looks at the other contest entries* I didn't know there were so many thievish reptile OCs! Honestly!
