Taiko has a dark skin, black rastafari hair and curved grey horns. Her
eyes have red irises, her nose is on the larger side and straight. She is
on the slender side, with not that much curvature. She often wears plenty
of layers since playing outside often leads to being cold.
Personality: Passionate, impulsive and reckless, Taiko often
doesn't think before she acts. She is a free spirit and not easily
contained. This is why she often plays on her own. She doesn't work well
with others unless they're experienced at ad-libbing and improvisations.
But for those people, Taiko is a dream to play with. She is eager,
responsive and willing to lose herself in the music.
Bio: Taiko was born to a male demon and a female human. Her mother
left her at a temple where she was raised. Taiko didn't really adhere to
the rules and she was often chastised (not always because she deserved it,
she was an easy mark because of her heritage). She showed her love ond
aptitude of music early on and was generally happy to practive the drums
so she was often allowed to do just that. As an adult she joined a
travelling troupe but she's changed troupes often and generally just
* Basic Fire Magic (kept hidden)
* Spellcasting (nothing too complex)
Enjoys: Music, warmth and doing what she wants.
Lots of people meet at parties. Whether they get introduced or they notice
each other across the dancefloor is not important. They know they click
and then they extend their circles. It was so that Taiko met Skipper. The
white-red hivewing mutt was standing in a corner, sipping some water from
a bowl - possibly spiked - and looking like they wanted to be anywhere but
here. But Skippers fluffy white tailtip moved to the beat of her
Across the room, the reclusive dragon was only present because she hadn't
been able to get out of attending the party. Some mumbling about fate and
destiny had been uttered. None of which Skipper believed in. So she was
sulking and doing her best to keep people away. Alas the music was quite
good, the beat steady and intense with enough twists to keep it
When the party died down, the two of them finally managed to exchange some
words. And after an unknown number of spirits, they decided that the Nexus
was a big place and that they could tour it together.

Species: Hivewing Mutt
Official Coloration: White-Red

Personality: Selfish, Reclusive, Protective

Still touring, Taiko and Skipper venture on and off planets, and sometimes
spaceships. At times they stick aorund for a few days. Other times they
leave as quick as they've arrived. Some would assume travel by dragon
should be more limited. But devilish teleportation skills are a whole
different matter. Taiko simply knows where to go.
"Whereto this time?" Skipper might ask.
"Following our noses." Taiko might reply.
Sometimes she might also use other bodyparts. It's quite mystical how
demons travel but it seems to follow some rules at least. Whatever may be,
Taiko seems to have quite the knack of finding interesting places to spend
