Sailor Benitoite Glacier Bear by li-xiang Sailor Benitoite Glacier Bear by li-xiang
My Animamate for CrystalAnimamates: Sailor Benitoite Glacier Bear!
I love bears. Bears are awesome. 

The Glacier Bear is a subspecies of the American Black Bear native to southeast Alaska. The warnings on her profile are based off of the British Columbia bear encounter information. If the notes on the warnings didn't make it clear: Beni is a talker who doesn't know when to shut up. She's very bad at reading non-verbal cues.

Her civilian name is Ursula McMahon because there is not enough bear in her-- it means "little she-bear son of bear" and makes me grin every time I think of it. She has vitiligo; it's mostly covered up by her gloves and boots, but she is absolutely furious that her transformation strips the makeup she wears over it off. 

Age: 21

Element: Ice

Powers/Abilities:
Glacier Punch - A blast of ice fired by way of punching. Does not have to connect to be fired, but a connecting punch delivers a stronger blow.

Her personality is pretty much listed on the image, but for clarification's sake she is a chatterbox with a tendency to become clingy towards those that show her kindness. Thanks to her vitiligo she is not particularly confident without her make up on as she uses it like a shield against the world; that her transformation strips it from her is a source of frustration, anger, and fear. Which just leads to even more nattering on to cover it up.

Ursula is African-Irish, with her father being a curly-haired Irishman and her mother being a curly-haired Zimbabwean. She spends hours straightening her hair.

Can. Can. She be friends with Iskra? Iskra, the Galena Great White Shark

She will feed her, and give her all the flowers. And doesn't mind the talking. Especially if Ursula will allow her to cuddle while she talks. Iskra would let her talk for hours, just being cuddled to her, and probably placing flowers in her hair <3

Oooh, yes~ Yes, I do believe them being friends would be a grand thing!

hehehe Iskra might have to watch for the occasional swinging arm as Ursula tends to gesture while talking, but she would so be down with cuddlechats.

Iskra is tankety tank tank. So being hit wouldn't be that big of a deal for her and she'd just laugh and wave it off. 
Iskra best works in a group as she prefers to be the literal shield for her allies, as most of her abilities lend towards that, so they'd work together rather well I think battle wise?

But iskra is patient and loves to listen to people talk, half fun, or just be happy.It makes her happy. She is like a mama bear <3

Ursula is very much the punchy punchy type, so having a tank to soak up damage while she darts in from the sides to lay the hurt on is like, the best thing evar! to her. I think that would make for an awesome team, yeah. 

Urse has been pretty grumpy lately, so having someone to just ramble to/at would also be awesome. She's always so much happier when she can just babble away at someone, even if there's no substance to what she's saying. She could spend half a day describe the clouds if the listener is willing to stick around that long :3

Hahaha yesss. I can see Iskra tagging along on missions or Ursula dragging her along if she needs the help, and Iksra going happily because it means Ursula isn't being hurt. Which is always a good thing. 

Iskra would cuddle her all day and let her rant and ramble. As long as she doesn't have anywhere to be. Though if urse didn't mind, I could also see Iskra working in her garden, and letting Urse talk to her. Iskra doesn't mind the chatter, it actually is a bit comforting to her. <3

I'm seeing a lot of "Hey! Hey Iskra! There's this thing that I need to get done and I could maybe do it on my own but it'd be really boring do you wanna come? I mean I'd put money on it being something kinda dumb so I'd totally understand if you don't but it'd be totally awesome and oh right maybe I should actually explain??" in her future :3

Hehe Urse wouldn't mind at all, she does enjoy lazing about and watching people do things, and with permission to just go on and on at length about anything and everything that comes to mind? She'd be in heaven. Just make sure she doesn't try to help with the gardening; she's got her heart in the right place, but with a habit of trying to rush things she might cause a bit of damage.

Iskra would most likely agree, if nothing else to keep her out of trouble and safe. 
Iskra = Tanky mama bear. = Protective = loving of all friends. 
So thus she 'd agree no matter how small as long as she had the time and just smile/laugh at her rambling. 

Iskra would only make that mistake once then find ways to keep Urse busy while in the garden. 
Probably by keeping her involved in a conversation and actually talking/responding/listening xD 
Makes her focus on talking to Iskra instead of trying to garden.

She is so freaking cute. Something tells me she'd give my Hematite Moth a heart attack thought (if if having a rowdy room mate wasn't enough).

Haha yeah, I could see that. Benitoite's need to chatter could make for some extremely awkward situations XD

I really enjoyed creating her so there will definitely be more; maybe not immediately (I have a con next week that I really need to finish prepping for!), unless quick and dirty doodles sketched on post-it notes count. Those I have a ton of :D
