Fursona Personality Life Hack



So, earlier today I was having trouble coming up with a list of personality traits to describe my fursona, Dusty. For furries like myself, I don't care much for thorough and complex character bios.

So I was brainstorming, and then I remembered Pokemon natures.


I was like a-ha! What an easy and simple way to accurately describe your fursona's personality! So, for more ease, I made a list with definitions of each nature, just to make each one easier to imagine.


Hardy - robust; capable of enduring difficult conditions.

Lonely - sad because one has no friends or company.

Brave - ready to face and endure danger or pain; showing courage.

Adamant - refuses to be persuaded or to change one's mind.

Naughty - disobedient; badly behaved.

Bold - shows an ability to take risks; confident and courageous.

Docile - ready to accept control or instruction; submissive.

Relaxed - free from tension and anxiety; at ease.

Impish - inclined to do slightly naughty things for fun; mischievous.

Lax - not sufficiently strict, severe, or careful.

Timid - shows a lack of courage or confidence; easily frightened.

Hasty - acts with with excessive speed or insufficient consideration; quick-tempered.

Serious - acts or speaks sincerely and in earnest, rather than in a joking or halfhearted manner.

Jolly - happy and cheerful.

Naive - shows a lack of experience, wisdom, or judgment.

Modest - unassuming or moderate in the estimation of one's abilities or achievements.

Mild - not severe, serious, or harsh; not easily provoked.

Quiet - makes little or no noise; discreet.

Bashful - reluctant to draw attention to oneself; shy.

Rash - displays or proceeds from a lack of careful consideration of the possible consequences of their actions.

Calm - doesn't show or feel nervousness, anger, or other strong emotions.

Gentle - has or shows a mild, kind, or tender temperament or character.

Sassy - lively, bold, and full of spirit; cheeky.

Careful - makes sure to avoid potential danger, mishap, or harm; cautious.

Quirky - odd or unpredictable in their appearance, character, or behavior.


So that's all there is to it! Let me know if this helped!
Oh, and if you're wondering...


Dusty is lax, hardy, lonely, adamant, bold, gentle, and impish.

What's yours?

Slippery When Wet
For me, I developed my character's personality through roleplay in an online group on Second Life. It allowed me to interact with other people's characters/fursonas and gradually create a backstory and personality profile for her. That was about ten years ago, when I first started, and I am still going. I still RP with some of those same people.
