Abyssinian by CanisAlbus Abyssinian by CanisAlbus

A new characterrr. Kizlar Ağası, the chief black eunuch charged with the protection and maintenance of the harem women. He's originally from Abyssinia (Ethiopia) but he was captured, slaved, castrated and eventually ended up to serve in the court where he slowly climbed up to the top of the hierarchy.

He’s third in the chain of command, right after the sultan and the grand vizier. Farzin, a vain and selfish vizier he is, constantly underestimates Kizlar and threats him like the rest of eunuchs. Their relationship is tense, to say the least. Eventually Kizlar gets his revenge. 

Graphite and Gimp.

What breed is he? Or, what is he based off of?

It's a fictional breed, mostly based off of the Ibizan hound and Basenji, I think.

Onko tää minkä rotunen? Kivan näköinen ja kiva tarina!
Piti kattoa heti isompana kun pikkukuvassa näytti ihan bullterrieriltä :'D En tiedä miten katoin tän ensin, et toi kuono ja toinen korva olis ollut korvia, ja toi lähempi korva olis ollu kuono?

Durr, yritin katsella Etiopian seudulta koirarotuja, muttei niitä tuntunut oikein löytyvän, joten pistin kasaan jotain epämääräistä vinttarityylistä... juttua. Jonkinlainen alkukantainen paariatyyppi lienee kyseessä, mutta ihan keksittyä rotua hän on.
Ja aika jännä näköhavainto :'D Siristelin silmiäni ja kallistelin päätäni tässä hetken, ja huomaan kyllä, miten bullterrierivaikutelma on mahdollinen! Jostain syystä tuo kasvojen merkki, mikä tuollaisenaan on melko mahdoton oikeilla koirilla, noudattaa lähes tismalleen bullien väritystä näin väärin nähtynä :'3 Itse näin korvan sisustan vielä kielenä...

Ehkä pitäisi mennä nukkumaan, silmätkään eivät tottele enää...

Ahaa, no ihan hyvä johtopäätös tehä yhdistelmä : D
Ja joo, oon nyt tässä viime aikoina valvonu ihan pikkutunneille
asti ja nytkin tuun valvoon luultavasti koko yön koska koulujutut,
niin alkaa pikku hiljaa tuntuun siltä, että en osaa enää kirjottaa :'D
Koko ajan skypessä ja joka paikassa tulee kirjotusvirheitä ja
silmät ristissä muutenkin niin :--D

Hah, samoin. Eikä minulla edes ole työn alla kovin paljon koulujuttuja, vaan ihan vanhanaikaista yökyöpelöintiä/nettiriippuvuutta tämä. Luennot alkavat yleensä vasta puolelta päivin, joten voi lahnoittua sängyssä koko aamun, onneksi.
Onnea vaan, mutta älä nyt koko yötä valvo. Ei sillä tyylillä kukaan elä :'3

Mulla taas tunnit alkaa aamulla, että hyvin menee. :'D
Ja kivasti myös kaikki koulujutut kasaantuu ja deadlinet
menneet aikoja sitten, että ihan jees. Ei vaan millään 
saa aloitettua \o/
Tuossa eilenkin menin nukkumaan yhdeksältä aamulla
että näillä mennään :'D
