Here's my final entry. I actually didn't get to work on it all that much today, in part because I did the character sheet. So in the end there's not a whole of difference from what I posted yesterday. I'll keep working on it even if the contest is over as I think it's worth it!
I present you Oscart, also known as Shortail or the bipedal beaver. He was born with an abnormal short tail, but in return he gained the abilty to walk on two legs. He uses his unusual abilty to protect his fellow forest dwellers from all those who want to get their hands on the mystical Maple Elixir which is harvested by the dwarf bears.
Best of luck to everyone!
