[APH OC] Kosovo by melonstyle [APH OC] Kosovo by melonstyle
People were taking more interest in my Kosovo OC recently, so I decided to finally do a fanart of her. I wish I still had the reference link for her clothing (it's a traditional costume), so I was basing it off of older fanart I've done of her (stuff i haven't submitted to dA, ahuehuehue).

Anyway, the truth is she's my third Hetalia OC to be created. Albania was first, Philippines was second. Anyway, when I was developing my Albania OC, one thing I noticed to be of importance was the Albania-Kosovo relationship. There were hardly any Kosovo OCs around and it was sort of tough pondering the two characters when I had one, but not the other. Thus along came the creation of this girl. And not long after, I made a Serbia. I decided the wisest thing with creating OCs of Albania, Kosovo and Serbia, was for me as a creator to remain as neutral as possible to the political dynamics between the three. I hope to continue doing more research for the three.

While this OC is in no way 'complete', she's been receiving development all along. So uh, here's some information on her and um... I hope you people like her! ^^

------

Country Name: Republic of Kosovo
Human Name: Lindita Jashari
('Jashari' is taken from Adem Jashari, who is considered the "father" of the 'Kosovo Liberation Army', and a symbol of Kosovo independence. Lindita means 'the new day is born' in Albanian, and was the name she took on from the moment she declared her independence in 2008)
Age Appearance: 18 She often looked younger than her neighbours, but has begun to look more mature in the more recent years.
Nation Age: While it's been 5 years since her declared independence, she was around as early as the Middle Ages and is really just as old as Serbia
Gender: Female
Height: 5'7" - the height of women in this region is very tall, but she's still considered short by many of the other Balkans
Birthday: 17th February (the date in which she declared independence)
Capital City: Pristina
Languages: Albanian and Serbian

Brief Overall Description
Lindita is a girl who has spent the majority of her life under Serbia, who she considered to be an older brother for many years. However, during the rule of the Ottoman Empire, she played a significant part during the 'Albanian national movement', which was a key factor in the great population of Kosovar-Albanians today. Because of this, over the years, she started to feel more closer to Albania than she did to Serbia, which was something the latter has never approved of. Nonetheless, despite spending so many years as a 'region', she began to realise just how much she wanted to become a nation of her own and thus declared independence. Some of the first to recognise her included Albania, Turkey, USA, UK and France. Other Eastern Europeans who have recognised her independence include Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Montenegro and Slovenia. However, there are still many other nations who refuse to recognise her independence, notable nations being Serbia and Russia.

Lindita is someone who is a keen observer. She's seen a lot of chaos throughout her life and has suffered many wounds over the years. Lindita however, isn't someone who tries to pretend that nothing's wrong. She can actually be rather blunt and a bit of a deadpan snarker actually - she's actually quite sarcastic and witty when she wants to be and is the type of person to own her flaws as much as she can. Lindita can recognise what needs to be done, and will do her best to ensure it is done, however, because she is rather upfront with her emotions, it can at times cloud her judgement. Sometimes she's even rather unconventional, a trait that seemed to crop up a lot more as she got to know Albania. She is quite down to earth, especially with those she considers a friend, but with those she doesn't get along with, she can seem rather standoffish. One thing she's trying to get down pat is coming across more open and really securing more positive relations, but the fact that with some nations it's a lost cause, that's something that brings her down at times. However, she's been gaining an increase of support over the years, which has been motivating her a lot more to persist and she hopes to stand out more in the future.

------------

Anyway um, that's my brief overview of my Kosovo OC! Again, I hope people like her. Maybe someday I'll have a full bio typed up, but ah, this is enough for one night! :D

In other news IDK what the hell is going on with my art style anymore like what the hell is happening????

seriously throughout working on it, it was one big 'what do' and idk if it's good or bad or what--

Anyways um

Kosovo OC belongs to :iconmelonstyle:

I have a Kosovo OC too! Funny thing enough, her appearance actually looked VERY similar to what I had invisioned here.

So your OC's picture is like, boom, you read my mind XD

My Kosovo is more Neutral when it comes to Serbia and Albania. She cant stand the arguing.

Ahh, I see. XD

Um, for Kosovo to be neutral wouldn't be right. Sure, the fighting sucks, but Serbia is fighting against what Kosovo wants, while Albania is fighting for what Kosovo wants. Kosovo wants independence and wants this to be recognised, while Serbia refuses to acknowledge that. Albania is Kosovo's main supporter. There's absolutely no way that Kosovo can be neutral when it comes to the two.

Honestly, if you want an OC that wont make Serbian and Albanian hetalia fans get mad, its best to make her neutral as possible.

And funny part is, I actually had this concept 4 days before you posted her XD

Except I haven't made the fans mad, pfff. I have both Serbian and Albanian friends who are happy with my OC. I have Serbia and Albania OCs too, so I'm aware of the balance, as well as the reality. Nobody's come complaining to me about it, trust me. ^^

Oh, I've had this OC for four years, so I thinkI I've been way ahead for a while. XD

thanks, but sorry, this is how I perceive my OC to be. I do have a Nyotalia version of this OC, but I'm going to keep her female.

Great OC! I knew about nothing about Kosovo before this, so this was really educational. :) I like her design, too.

thank you so much! :D And yeah, I can see why people wouldn't know too much about Kosovo - especially when one the world doesn't recognise their independence and stuff. In fact, I knew nothing about Kosovo's existence until I saw the country mentioned alongside Albania. XD; But then once I knew of it, I felt this sudden need to learn more!

[ Wooooooah this is one of the best well thought Kosovo OC's I've seen yet!
I still have a lot to do for my Albania, I'm thinking of working on almost everything for her.

Overall, I believe this is one of the best I've seen and very well though, changes can
be made but this is quite fantastic considering the others I've seen. I know I shouldn't
be talking on improvement, since my Albania needs MAJOR revamping on some things, but
this is just wonderful. ]

ahuehuehue well, thank you~ btw idk if I mentioned but my full list of Balkan OCs I have is actually Albania, Kosovo, Serbia, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, ahaha~ idk if the latter three are as close to getting mini bios, but I am happy to take interest in the area. It's hard to find others who take a similar interest and actually pull off awesome OCs as well, ahaha

[My list would be, a Serbia, obviously, a rather developed Slovenia an Croatia, a major WIP Bosnia and Montenegro and just a basic design of a FYROM and a Republika Srpska. :'D
And indeed it is. ;w; There are though a shitload of Slovenia OCs out there, but they always all have something that kinda irks me, and I shouldn't be allowed to say that because I have no right due to my OCs also not being perfect, but yeah. .n. I dunno-
There is indeed a sad lack of developed Former-Yugo countries OCs. ]

Not a bad oc I like it a lot as you did said tried to keep it neutral and her personality is round up. What I would like to see maybe is a bit more on the relation ships but that for the time you complete the bio xD great work for just one night typing :p
But oterwise nicely done and a beutifully fanart you made of her. n.n

melonstyle Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2013
Ah yeah, one thing I was thinking of doing was editing just to add some of the main relations at least. Because of irl stuff, I don't have the time to really type up pages and pages of bio the way I did for earlier OCs, orz
most of my OCs are basically in this stage of 'big bio inside the brain but not typed out', lol (I have 15-16 aph ocs too--//bricked)

anyways um, thank you very much for your comment! :D
