The General by CanisAlbus The General by CanisAlbus
Of course I don’t require you to try to remember all these characters, but oh well…
Kashgar is one of Chazaqiel’s favourite underlings. He's in charge of a big part of Chazaqiel's army and known for his fantastic leading skills and the victories in battle. He's a bit blunt and foolhardy which leads to constant clashes with Farzin, the grand vizier who often visits Chazaqiel's court. Despite his Chinese name, Kashgar is actually from Mongolian steppe. The markings are inspired by birds of prey, and the overall appearance resembles that of a Kyrgyzskaya Borzaya Taigan, only with short, cropped ears and thick fur that covers his paws completely. The whites of his eyes are also strongly pigmented so they look almost black.

Graphite and Gimp.

It's kind of hard to see his ears because his hair hides them or it looks so spiky that I can't tell the difference.

Well, he doesn't really have ears anymore, they were chopped to the very base. There's just small triangles hidden under the spiky fur. Normally his ears would look like Saluki's ears.

It may seem a bit suspicious to see al these characters of mine with mutilated ears, but it's actually a common practice in Central Asia (where these characters are supposed to live) to crop dog's ears very short.

I don't know but can they hear after that?

They can hear alright, it's just the auricle that's cut off. The part that actually hears the sounds and transmits them to the brain is located inside the head and it usually stays intact. But without auricles it's probably harder for them to locate the direction of the sound.
