Ebrahimi vs. Jaffar I by Vanqvisher Ebrahimi vs. Jaffar I by Vanqvisher
Story by :iconvanqvisher:.

Please check out the story from Nesrine's perspective (here: fav.me/db2slzp) written by Ballionaire!

***
Shireen "Cass" Ebrahimi looked out into the crowd as she strode towards the cage, flanked by her her team--coach Archer Flanagan, teammate and confidant Joanna Louvier, and a number of other support personnel and close associates. She had given everything over the past two years to this moment--nearly all of her time, all of her effort, and any hope of a social life since college--hopefully it would pay off now. She had great confidence, considering her previous experience as an Olympic athlete in Tae-Kwon-Do, where she did not medal but had a chance to prove herself against the most skilled practitioners of the sport in the entire world. She had always been humble about her talent but now it was starting to sink in that she could be on the path to greatness.

"How do you feel about your first professional fight being against another Muslim girl?" the reporter had asked her.

"Jaffar? Well, uh... she's a boxer, and I'm a kicker, so I think it should be a very interesting fight." She responded, dodging the politically charged question.

"But what do you think of the fact that she wears a burqa? Do you have anything to say about that?" The reporter pried, showing her ignorance.

"Well, it's called a hijab. And to be honest, I don't think it's anyone's business but hers what she chooses to wear," she responded, becoming somewhat annoyed. "She seems like a tough fighter, and all I'm going to be thinking about is how to get past her punches and submit her. Hah."

Cass didn't make a point of saying it, but she was thrilled to be facing another Muslim woman in her sport. She saw it as an opportunity to challenge some of the stereotypes about her religion--well, her culture. Cass wasn't so sure about the religion part--she had grown up with it, but in college her faith had begun to wane as she explored other interests and made new friends. She would always be Muslim, she thought to herself, but was still trying to figure out what that meant to her. As she neared the cage, she hugged her friend, stepped inside, slipped in her mouthpiece, and bounced back and forth on the balls of her feet. Warming up her muscles. She was going to need all of them.

Her competition stood in the other corner, shadowboxing with black gloves, a contrast to the white ones Cass wore. She was clad in a taut white hijab that looked specially designed for combat, a pink top, black shorts and white leggings. Nesrine Jaffar, who had made a name for herself in boxing before transitioning to MMA. This fight would be a first for her as well.

"Wow, she's beautiful... she must have good defense..." Cass thought to herself.

They made their way to the center of the octagon, and the referee made preparations for the match to begin. The bell rang.

"Let's see if she can dodge this," Cass thought, throwing a roundhouse kick aimed at Nesrine's head. 

Turned out she could. It was a good thing Cass had her hands up, as Nesrine's fist thundered sharply into Cass's defenses, nearly knocking her off balance. Cass caught a glimpse of a cocky smile on her opponent's face, before a second punch slammed into her cheek.

Cass Ebrahimi is :iconvanqvisher:'s OC.

Nesrine Jaffar is :iconballionaire:'s OC.

At last, an image of Cass!:D
I like her outfit. The color scheme would work even if she was Pakistani (like Miss Marvel;)) instead of Iranian. Was it a reference? And what the "4T" (or is it "41"?) mean?

I never knew Nesrine's last name, to be honest. If it was written in one of :iconballionaire:'s stories, I sadly didn't paid enough attention.

Looking forward for more pictures. Ah, and I didn't forgot my idea for a picture of Cass and Farah. I just need a good idea for a scene and reference:)

Ah, but remember, she's American! (USA to be specific ;)). The green is just a general color choice because she likes it. But I can see how that would be confusing.  I got Nesrine's last name from :iconmayydayy:'s bio image of her. The 4T is a made up brand -- it means "forti" which is Latin for "strong." Yeah, and I'd love to see an interaction between Cass and Farah! No rush!

Oops, my bad!:D (curious that you speficied that, everyone is already used with you guys using "America" as if you owned the whole continent and the dozens of millions of other people were just undesired guests in an U.S. Empire). Green is an awesome color, it's the color of youth, freshness, and hope, and Gil's favourite color;)
Oh, nice! I like logos with a meaning, I might make a version of it if you don't mind:) No rush at all, but if you have a good reference, send it on my way:D

Alright, sounds good. Yeah the idea with 4T is they make stuff for fighters... You know, supplement, athletic gear, gloves, etc... Also, yeah, I will look for a good reference pic for Cass and Farah!

I'm honestly not sure if it's ever been mentioned in an actual story. I PM'd ballionaire when I was making the bio and they told me her last name (among other stats).

Now that you mention it, she looks a little like Griffon. But no--Griffon's hair is black, while Cass' is dark brown. Cass also doesn't wear makeup in a fight lol. Their features are somewhat similar though.  Their hair looks similar when it's up and also I think Cass has brown eyes while Griffon has Hazel eyes. Griffon also has more of an hourglass figure whereas Cass is built a bit more lean and mean :P

yeah, at first glance i confuse them :XD:

Also, is just me of Cass looks a little more "muscular" than her oponent? i dont know if is the clothing covering her.

I may have overdone it a little. 😳 I need to work on drawing girls who look strong but not necessarily ripped. That said, Cass is showning a lot more skin than Nesrine!

Well. just dont put that much definition in the muscles if you want that B'D.
And that's a good point too.

Easier said than done! I use the muscles to make sure the overall shape looks right. I will have to trust my intuition more from now on!

well, maybe you need a bit of practice B'D.

I have friends that can make characters (specially female) look strong without making them look muscular, i really envy that B'D

Oh, I love them! But I like to explore lots of different themes and this is what I was feeling recently. I can tell people are itching for more mixed fights though. There will certainly be more, especially when it comes to Joanna ;)

Well, this is MMA, so there will likely be some grappling involved. Beyond that, I can't promise anything because Nesrine isn't my character.

"Wow, she's beautiful... she must have good defense..." Cass thought to herself."

LOL, Cass you have the possibility to change it. And you should use your feet. Not cushioned like the hands, so more effective when you want to reduce the beauty in Nesrins face. You must take care the bony parts of your feet meet the face. A meeting of the bone of your instep with the nose in Nesrins face will bring an amazing change in the look of Nesrins face. :-)

That's very... specific. I'm not sure who is going to win this fight! Nesrine is starting off strong though! It's going to be tough for Cass to kick her properly if she keeps getting punched in the face!

Donnersberg Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2017
Nesrin looks also hot. And the long white trousers emphasize her big brown powerful barefeet so I think some remodelling of Cass face with these feet would also look amazing (I always prefer more the using of the feet as of the fists :-) )

Vanqvisher Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2017  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
We'll see what happens, as Nesrine's punches will be somewhat stronger than her kicks... Although I guess if she catches Cass offguard she could knock her out with a swift kick to the face ;). Paige Van Zandt comes to mind...
