I tried uploading my submission to the gallery but it started acting all wonky. Sorry if I messed anything up! /-_-;;
Race: Please bear with me, I haven't come up with a name for it yet
Abilities: capable of growing three extra sets of arms; remarkable agility and speed; poisonous bite
In a world dominated by humans, Souta is a member of a humanoid race bred for their ability to take on the characteristics of animals, via ingestion or injection of said animal's DNA. This accumulation of characteristics can only take place while the humanoid is 5-10 years of age, otherwise they remain flatnosed, pale-skinned, upright-walking creatures with unusually large eyes. These "failures" are used to give birth to more, or are killed.
These creatures are bred for illegal fighting. They are trained mercilessly, injected with various combinations of DNA in hopes to create the ultimate organic fighting machine. Apart from fighting and training, they are cut off from any other living being.
While still in transit from one breeder to another, through accident or fate, Souta was bitten by a spider and ingested human blood. By the time he reached his new breeder, it was already too late to alter his composition. With an untried, kind trainer and an easily-amused master, Souta not only makes the use of his unusual heritage in battle, but in relation to the human race as well.
He is a freak amalgamation of three different races. Or is he the savior of a great people long kept in captivity by the humans, as he believes himself to be? Either way, lots of people want him dead...
Was that a bit too dramatic? ^^;
