In case you haven't noticed from the favourites section, I've recently got back into a Ginga vibe by re-watching both Ginga Nageroboshi Gin and Ginga Densetsu Weed for old time's sake. After going through some old Ginga trash in the collection, I came across the old fic "Love comes from the littlest things" and found one character who I loved and neglected to fully develop. This poor soul never got to see the light of day on deviantart (and who was in need of a good rewriting and designing). So low and behold, I give you Gir, the hyperactive chihuahua.
Name: Gir (Full name being Guarding. Institution. Responder Specimen: 25669001TBD)
Gender: Intersex (but goes by the He/Him pronoun)
Pack: Ohu (Formally belonging to the P4 institute)
Offspring: None (but he considers many of the puppies born into Ohu to be 'his babies')
Personality: In a sea of serious and stern faces, Gir is one of the few openly friendly ones. Any newcomer will immidately become aqquainted with his muzzle as he thrusts it into theirs, along with numerous questions, constant bouncing from and endless supply of energy and endless chatter (He's been dubbed "The Chatterbox" for a reason). A hyperactive, wild ray of sunshine with an overly optimistic attitude and occasional reality breaker to boot; Gir is the least likely character to be working as soldier against foes such as P4, Hougen, Monkeys, Russian Dogs or Hybred bears. Due to his puppy-like nature and small size, to consider this creature as a soldier of Ohu is almost laughable. That is where they underestimate.
Prior to meeting Weed, he was born and raised in a lab as a genetically enhanced canine (a real test tube baby). Taken away at a young age, the pup was designated to be in a fleet of chihuahuas for a new guard dog project (because, come on, who supsect Chihuahuas?) Unfortunately, he did not meet the scientists expectations and after...thousands of tests, the researchers soon lost hope for the specimen to be of any use to them. Gir was about to be put down as a failed subject when P4 escaped. He was then "sent" as one of the dogs to destroy him. Out of all the possible creatures to follow Jerome and his squad, THIS THING decided to follow them.
At first glance, he can be seen as a care-free and irritaing airhead who they could do well without. However, once you get to know Gir, he's not as stupid as he looks and despite his socially adept nature, he truly cares about his packmates and those he loves (which can be pretty much anyone he meets and instantly likes). Deep down, all he wants is to make others happy and smile; because if those around him are happy, he is happy.
Hope you like it!
