Cyndaquil: Fire Type

Cyndaquil sneezed as shadows danced across his vision. He was sick and he knew that, but he had to get to the next town. He continued to stumble forwards, trying his best to stay on the path and to not trip on a rock. If he stopped and rested now, there was a high chance that he may never wake back up. Suddenly something touched his back, startling him, he quickly turned around and tried to ignite the flame on his back, but all he could produce were a few weak sparks. He looked around frantically but couldn't see anything unusual. Was his mind playing tricks on him? Had he really felt that or was it all just in his mind?

If a foe attacks Cyndaquil, the flames on their back may ignite, singeing the enemy and giving them just enough time to run away. The flames may also ignite by accident if they are angry or surprised, this reaction has led to many unexpected fires. The temperature of the fire on their backs varies depending on how upset they are; the more angry they are, the hotter the flame is. If they are livid it may even burn a bright blue.

Surprise

If you are caught by surprise and are not tired or sick the flame on your back will erupt and cause anyone within 5 feet to be bathed in heat. Any creature within 5 feet when this happens must make a Intelligence saving throw, if failed they get knocked prone, this takes your reaction. Your DC save for this attack is 8+proficiency+Constitution modifier. Once your flames erupt on accident they can not do so again for 10 minutes. This is a temporary trait, when the sheet is finished it will be updated.

If a Cyndaquil is tired or sick, the flames on their back will only sputter and can not ignite. An easy way to tell how well a Cyndaquil is feeling is simply to ask them to start the flames on their backs. They tend to be extremely timid creatures and don't like to be in the way of others and may even start to cry if they feel they are being a burden to someone. When scared or cold they will curl up into a small ball, this helps them calm down and retain heat in a pinch.

Not Available

Cyndaquil are not picky and will live in the most convenient locations they can find. The places they find to live are based more on convenience of others rather than for themselves. They will have a hard time asking for help from others in fear of inconveniencing them so it is not uncommon to see a Cyndaquil asleep on the side of the road because they didn’t want to be a problem for others.

Cyndaquil Traits

Allignment: Most Cyndaquil do not like to impose themselves on others and try their best to stay out of everyone's way. Because of this, it is easy for other creatures to forget they are even there or to take advantage of them. Although timid in nature, they still are kind hearted and if they see a small creature in distress will often try to help it as best they can.

Cyndaquil pulled herself tighter into a ball. It was cold out, so any extra heat she could keep in would be helpful. She was in a bed roll, but she would have much rather have stopped at an inn and slept there. If it were up to her, she would have, but her friends had convinced her to keep walking to gain a bit more distance so they could get to the next city faster. She shivered. To her, the extra distance wasn't worth this cold.
