Here is my submission for

Remember this dude? --> [link]
Well, or those who don't know who this character is yet, this is Chishiryou Awai. Well, that's only his alias... his real
name is Ruben Darkwood.
He's a very pale ringtail cat if you didn't catch that.
Chishiryou (or Ruben) was raised in a town known for its unusually advanced medical practices (and we're talking for medeival-ish times here). The son of a chemist/doctor, he was already born into the life of a doctor. But when an epidemic swept through his town, his father couldn't finish the cure in time... as he was becoming weak from the sickness himself. Chishiryou continued his father's work on the cure, but was too late- everyone in the town was dead, and he was the last one alive.
He took his survival in a very twisted way. Thinking that his survival was a message that he needed to serve Death, he continued his years as an assassin for hire. He would get paid to do the dirty work, but he preferred to work in secret
, often posing as a doctor while injecting his "patients" with deadly poisons, and hiding behind his false identity of "Chishiryou"- his real name, Ruben, a secret.
Sadist, homicidal, deceiving, and yet cunning- that's Chishiryou the deadly doctor.
Took a loooong time to do... I kept on having to redraw him and redraw him until I finally came out with this final product. And then, the coloring... *shudders* took too long D:. Oh, well. Enjoy!
