Detail Chief Bogo

Chief Bogo is a large, muscular cape buffalo, who is the commander (and chief) of the Zootopia Police Department.  Tough as nails and rough around the edges (and pretty much all over), Chief Bogo doesn't suffer fools gladly.  He's a stern, unforgiving, hard-bitten veteran of the police force who expects all of his officers to be as tough as he is.  And he can be very hard on those whom he feels don't measure up to his exacting standards...among them the department's newest rookie officer, Judy Hopps.  Like almost everyone who lives in Zootopia, he simply does not feel that a rabbit has what it takes to be a police officer, and he really treats Judy quite badly starting from her very first day on the job.  He just wants to be rid of her, and so he assigns her to the inglorious job of "parking duty" (checking for vehicles parked next to expired parking meters on the city streets).  He issues her a very unreasonable demand: issue 100 parking tickets by the end of her first day, or resign from the police force.  But Judy actually manages to call his bluff, and issues two hundred tickets before returning to the station to end her first day's shift.  So it seems that Chief Bogo is going to have a tougher time being rid of the little rabbit than he first thought.

While Chief Bogo is, actually, an upright and honorable public servant, and does have the city's best interests at heart, he is somewhat jaded by many years on the force, and seeing the uglier side of it...even to the point of succumbing to that himself: an underlying prejudice and spite towards anyone who either upsets him or doesn't live up to his expectations.  However, he is utterly without fear (except for being intimidated by Mayor Lionheart, his boss), and he does have a softer, wiser side.  When Judy becomes depressed over the mistakes she's made in trying to solve her first case, Chief Bogo gives her some sage advice to help lift her spirits.  And then, when she ultimately solves that case (with the help of Nick Wilde), the chief warms up to her and accepts her as a valued member of his department.

He is also a closet fan of the pop singer Gazelle, and often watches videos of hers on his smart phone when he assumes no one is watching.

Full Name: Chief Bogo

Species: Cape Buffalo

Design Inspiration/Influences: Police officers who are avid body builders; tough, no-nonsense senior police department division commanders.

Appearance: Tall, with a muscular build, dark gray fur and brown eyes.  His police uniform consists of a dark blue long-sleeve shirt with epaulets, gold rank insignia on the collar, name tag, metal police badge and cloth department badge on the upper right and left sleeves, dark blue pants, a standard-issue police utility belt.

Personality: Stern, short-tempered and abrasive.  Has a no-nonsense and deliberate approach to all matters pertaining to his job and the duties of the police department, and can be very impatient and occasionally arrogant, and sometimes rude to others (including his employees).  He is also honorable and occasionally wise, and can be very charming to civilians who come to him for help (even if, occasionally, he feels he has little time to be bothered by them).  Likes to engage in teasing and play insults with his favorite officers.

I believe I found it on a Zootopia Fact video, 107 About Zootopia, or something like that.

Well I took the "Inspiration/Influence" references directly from the Disney Wikia pages for Zootopia. But I can always add that. Because I believe you are correct...there is a mention of it somewhere on some video or something...

If I remember correctly, I believe he was inspired by police officers that were also bodybuilders. Would that count as an inspiration/influence? XD
