Coat: - In appearance Casanova is typical of his species. Most of his plush fur is carmine red (#99001C). His tail is ringed; the colors alternating six times between ochre (#D37122) and carmine before ending in a dark auburn (#370101) tip. That same dark auburn colors his belly, legs and the backs of his ears; everywhere this color touches another it transitions smoothly (the blending a seamless gradient) except on his head where the ochre of the insides of his ears and the white markings on his face are sharply defined. His facial markings are simple and as follows: a white smudge over each eye, an outwards pointing white arrow on each cheek and a white muzzle.

Eyes - His eyes are dark green (#014D1B). In strong lighting the rich greens and subtle teals that are scattered throughout shine and seem to reflect light like the faceted sides of a gem. Instead of blending seamlessly the colors come together in jagged, sharply defined pieces. In poor lighting, though, all definition between the colors is lost and his eyes appear nearly black.

Build - 'Compact' is a good word to describe Casanova. His legs are short and chubby, his head is round, his ears are round, his belly is round...basically he's a very stout, very round fellow, okay? Gosh.

appearance
True to his name, Casanova is a bit of a lady's man. He's a flirt; more in love with the idea of being in love than looking for the one. A hopeless romantic, Casanova is willing to go above and beyond in order to stand out. He believes quite firmly that genteel manners and grand gestures are far better tools of seduction than aggression and braggadocio. It would be nothing for him to pluck a field of flowers bare so he could shower the object of his affection with them.

While he might save the more grand displays and the bulk of his affections for his paramour(s), Casanova is quite aware that the same manners can be applied to certain kinds of thievery. If he feels he can ply someone with sweet words and manners, he will. While he doesn't have a problem with the more savage kinds of stealing, confidence tricks are more his style. The naive, the insecure and the inexperienced be wary; the heart is Casanova's playground.

His repertoire is vast but themed and once you know one of his tricks it's not hard to guess the rest. Fortune telling and seances are by far his favorite games. They require a kind of mental dexterity that few are capable of – a fact that's not lost on Casanova. He prides himself on his abilities. While he has certain specialties it would be fair to call him a jack of all trades. He dabbles in anything and everything that could one day be useful to him be it sewing with porcupine quills, curing meats or conversing with your long dead grandmother. If you can name it, he can do it.

Being a little fellow prone to schemes that put him at odds with bigger, more aggressive creatures has forced Casanova to adapt; fleeing, by far his most natural defense, isn't always a viable option. Out of necessity he's spent a great deal of time learning how to brew and administer poisons. Along the way he's learned a thing or two about healing, but that's not really his thing. He's learned poisons because that's what it's taken to survive his proclivities.

The above is all well and good for a little thief, right? He's got the cunning, the smarts and the temperament for it. So it's a shame, really, that he's so darn sleepy. Wooing lady red pandas ranks pretty high up on his list, but higher still is napping. Find him a smooth branch in the mid-morning sun and he'll spend the rest of the day there. Add a tangle of bamboo shoots and he'll spend the night there too. Casanova can out nap a cat so while he's good at what he does, most of the time he lacks the motivation to do it.
