As the biggest, strongest, and most egotistical of all 20 Team Severity members, Nexus is knocked down to the bottom of the barrel when the reality of his presence hits the fan. Cradled by a facade of greatness, this mighty dragon falls flat on his face and has only this cushion to blame. Strength isn't the only thing that matters, and the bigger you are, the harder you fall.

Summarized Bio Thus Far:

To be posted

Personality:

Alignment: Neutral
Morals: Chaotic Neutral
Attitude: At first glace, Nexus is a very tough, very hardy man easily capable of intimidation. It's a shame that he's aware of his size, as that is literally his biggest drawback. Nexus is constantly flaunting his size to intimidate others. He is an all around braggart because of this, assuming that no one can take him down with his brute strength and large body. However, he is terribly unintelligent, which makes his size a minor obstacle to overcome. He often talks down to friends and enemies alike, boosting his own heavily inflated ego with the superiority he wishes he truly had, seeing as he doesn't easily make friends to boost it for him. He is an overall lazy beast who doesn't strive for anything noteworthy other than being "great."
Life’s Aspirations: When Team Severity's mission is complete, Nexus is hoping to make a name for himself other than the "Big Bad Idiot"
Favorite Foods: Nexus has a hearty appetite for most charred or gamey tastes like raw meat, and sometimes roasted plants. He has also been known to eat molten rocks. He has a strong dislike of very sweet foods.
Religion: Tyvaissiism
Likes: Small opponents, being feared, being complimented, proving his worth, sunny days, defeating his foes, being told he's special, spouting flames, and showing off his battle scars.
Dislikes: Sarcasm, big words, anything bigger than him, being reminded of his faults, being taken advantage of, having to submit to a smaller authority, when his scales crack, or are pulled off, small writing, being yelled at, being called a child, and being ridden.
Fears: Aquaphobia- "Fear of drowning or water."

it is always fun to see how people interpret dragons as sonic characters ^^ i really love the design here especially with the mizzle because this is a rather unique idea for it with the snout and nose ring! also the claws and wings add to the dragon like feeling of this character! over all verry well done!

I still think he is one great and well designed character.
I have always enjoyed looking at all different kinds of Sonic dragon characters, but this one takes the cake. Not even my dragon, Saphira, can beat this big beast. <3

You're welcome.
Yep, just because he seem like a strong and fearsome dragon does not mean he should have his smarts. <3
Also, comparing to others' characters, they need to have its smarts no matter the size. Though, since I am not a very smart woman, I cannot make my characters smart. I am not thinking of to make them smart either. xD

Alright, then let me put it this way, if it is any better:
Some people seem to think that the only way their character can survive is to be smart and powerful.
According to me, this is not needed. I am not that smart and I don't have smart characters since I am not smart in that way.

Yeah, he's just a dragon. He was born in the Fragmented Plains. An area that most ground oriented beasts come from.
