This was one of the characters I was working on during the break. I wanted to really work on my anatomy and proportions, as well as his character.
I had to use A LOT of references... -_- Sorry for the long bio...
Mr. Eous is a creature that lacks his own living body. The bowtie he wears is actually "him", in a sense, while the rest of him is a fleshy casing, somewhat dependent on the physical characteristics of the ones he controls. Mr. Eous, when not in control of a human, is a white bowtie. Upon being worn, black tendrils emerge from the tie and wrap around the victim until he and the poor soul are "merged" and he assumes control. These tendrils can also be used to navigate when he is not in possession of a human. His eyes, tail fur, tongue, shirt cuffs, lapel, and even the bowtie-- now acting as an ordinary accessory-- change to a specific color meant to represent the human's personality. His physique is also dependent on the human's, though he keeps his tail, fur, fangs, and ears. Even if Mr. Eous assumes the body of a female, the outcome of his formation is still male. While his clothes never change besides color, he can take them off. The tie cannot be removed.
While possessing a human, his personality is unchanged. Mr. Eous is a very flamboyant sort of fellow, and is often polite and courteous to people, despite most of them not liking him too much. He is rather benevolent, but does not see any harm in borrowing a human's body for a little while. He has a strange sense of humour, finding everyday human behaviours hilarious, like wearing shoes. He often becomes lonely, as he believes there is no one else like him in the world, and becomes confused and angry whenever he sees friends together, wondering what they have that he does not. This is part of the reason he possesses people; as a crude attempt to make friends.
Mr. Eous prefers to possess young, energetic people, and enjoys feeling alive, though the host can still die while he is in possession of them. When this happens, Mr. Eous can still move about, but the afformentioned colored areas on him turn to white. When this happens, he becomes very mournful, as he shares in the human's memories, and thus, a part of their life. He then quickly abandons the body and flees the scene.
When a new human is free from Mr. Eous' possession, they either experience body aches and tiredness for the next few days, along with a craving for garbage, whereas humans who have been possessed before and for a prolonged period of time, experience a strange sense of euphoria and develop characteristics that would otherwise relate to how Mr. Eous looks or behaves, including, but not limited to: the hair turning black, reluctancy to wear shoes, and the growth of sharp teeth.
If you have any questions, critiques or ideas for this character, please let me know and I will respond with gratitude.
This idea came to me in a series of late night thoughts just before I fell asleep.
P.S. Sorry for the poor resolution, I had to use my other app for this and this was as best a resolution as I could make.
