Roger Grimdark is a 6'4" anthropomorphic brown male feathered velociraptor with long, straight red hair who wears masculine cat-eye glasses.

He is biromantic and asexual with a fetish for deglutition but no interest in sexual intercourse. He was born on July 24, 2002, in El Yunque National Forest after being created in a laboratory using the ancient DNA of an emu woman and an ostrich man. He was raised in the United States mainland and has Bipolar Type II, Asperger's Syndrome, C-PTSD, and ADHD.

Permissions:
+ Ask permission before shipping him with other characters, especially if it's fetish art or art that features partnered sex.
+ He may be featured in vore as the watcher or prey by default. Ask permission before using him as a predator since his protocol for that is different.
+ He may be featured in gore.
+ Please keep him accurate to eras such as the 1940s and 1950s or below. He does not like the 21st century except for technology such as laptops and smartphones... but they must be drawn in a retrofuturistic manner.
General
Description:
PERSONALITY/TRAITS: Roger can be described as macabre, solicitous, obsessive, strange, socially awkward, reclusive, prone to extreme mood swings, gloomy/sorrowful, having a somewhat surreal worldview, and constantly overthinking/overanalyzing. He is considered to have above-average intelligence and he collects antiques and vintage/retro things of all sorts. He considers himself to be an introvert and, while mostly pessimistic, an occasional optimist. He always tries to tackle problems head-on if he considers it possible.

Politically, he's a moderate liberal/Democrat but likes to keep his views private due to fear of receiving backlash for them. He understands that politics tends to make people feel strong feelings and wishes to avoid the subject altogether. When confronted with someone whose views differ from his, his reaction tends to depend on individual-to-individual. He tries to see everyone's point of view in things and study everyone's psychology in hopes that there can be a breakthrough and a compromise. He is particularly interested in learning about evolution, astronomy, biology, chemistry, genetics, neurobiology, history, development, sexology, and anthro psychology (and perhaps even animal psychology as well).

He has problems making eye-contact with people as a result of his Asperger's Syndrome. He only makes eye-contact with people he is comfortable enough with. He also has a bit of a stuttering problem and sometimes has issues trying to find the right words to express himself.

BACKSTORY: The year was 2001. Scientists made Roger and his cousin Dominick in a lab using the ancient DNA of extant birds. He wasn't made as a fully-formed infant, however. He started out as an egg, as did his cousin. They wouldn't hatch until an entire year after their creation. The scientists eventually stopped receiving funding for this project with contributors wondering about the ethics of bringing dinosaurs back to life, and thus, they abandoned them somewhere where they believed the two wouldn't be found by any passing civilian.

Roger and Dominick were dropped in 2 different spots, far away from each other, and thus were separated. The two share a double birthday, being created and hatched on the same day. Luckily enough, they were also found by 2 people who happened to be siblings and thus were able to meet again later in life. Roger's mother was a barn owl who was married to a male great-horned owl. He had 2 siblings who happened to be a hybrid of the two species. He was the only dinosaur in his family, something he had taken notice of. He always wondered why he was the only member of his family that was a dinosaur, and why he never saw any other person of his own species. One day, though, his parents decided to tell him the truth; that he was adopted and that his particular species had died off millions of years ago- they were extinct. He found it devastating at first but was also glad his parents had told him. It hit him hard for about a few hours, but eventually, he stopped feeling so sad about it. Instead, he was intrigued and wanted to learn more about dinosaurs in general and about other extinct species and how they got "wiped out".

At school, he had trouble making friends. He was considered an oddball for reasons unknown and nobody ever wanted to hang out with him. In his neighborhood, he had only 2 friends. He was also considered a bit of an outcast there, though people would occasionally talk to him.
