my character for :iconmynameismad: and :icontoxictoothpick:'s Cooking Wars

Mario Beartali
Mario is pictured here with one of his many short-lived sidekicks/assistants, Colin. Colin will no doubt be "accidentally" added to a tasty dish lacking in owl soon enough.

Mario doesn't use weapons other than his razor sharp claws and teeth, which also come in handy for prep work in the kitchen.

Gender: Male

Height: Average Brown Bear height

Weight: Above Average Brown Bear weight

Nationality: Unknown, lived in Russia for many of his early years

Favorite Food: Anything involving smaller animals than himself.

Info: Mario's early years were full of pain and humilation as he was forced to perform in the Bumblin Bros. Circus as it toured around much of Russia and Europe. One day Mario decided enough was enough and he attacked his keepers and many of the human circus performers. He ate a couple of clowns (they tasted a bit funny though HAH!) before he acidentally knocked the Ringmaster into a large vat of nacho cheese. Deciding to eat him as he was Mario quickly discovered the wonder that is taking one ingredient then adding another to it to make it even tastier.

Mario thought this was a pretty cool thing he had discovered and set out to eat many just as equally tasty things, most of which involved the small animals he forced to do all the boring stuff like dicing onions and peeling potatoes.

Cooking style: Messy

Battling Style: Bear-like

Intro/tryout comic coming some day before the deadline.

Oh man I was excited to Compete against you but then I read your above comment saying you pulled out already. Alas it is not many times a man can cook against the king of land beasts and it seems even now I might just have to settle for the teddy bear.
