Bearing a mostly creamy-white base coat, this male in many ways resembles most his mother, his grandmother and his great aunt. His mother and grandmother's softer auburn and fawn, however, are intensified by the blood of his grandfather into more brilliant, fiery auburn markings, sharp-edged and distinct rather than blended like his mother's. A fiery mask covers his face, distinctive in the way it curves sharply down the sides of his muzzle in sharp points, the top of the mask traveling up his nose to cover his ears and curve back towards his muzzle, the whole of it leaving a roughly oval shape cut out of the auburn to leave his crystalline blue eyes and most of the sides of his muzzle cream. Auburn also sharply defines his toes, but nowhere else is his cream pelt touched by color.

His body is tall and strong, even as a pup, his form toned muscle rather than slender or bulky. His height far exceeds his mother's, and from the start it is apparent. Despite being a voracious eater, he rarely builds the layer of fat necessary for warmth in the winter, so it is a good thing his coat thickens up as well as it does. The pale fur does little to hide the hard edges of his toned body, but it does make up for the too-low body fat.

A trio of claw marks trail down from his brow over his left eye and down to his cheek, barely avoiding blinding him, from a cougar attack in puphood.appearance

Artur is a bit of a throw-back to his great-uncle Syrinx in many of his personality traits. Despite the darker nature of his viewpoints and his personality, however, he very rarely acts upon that nature. Even from a young age he displays a rigid self control, but like all self-contained individuals, never having let that temper off its leash he may not be capable of getting it back once that control snaps...

Proud - a terrible, cold pride in his bloodline marks this young male. His mother's pride is distilled down into something dangerous in him. This pride allows for no weakness, no second chances. If you fail, fall, you are not worth his time.

Blood purity - Artur believes only those who bear the blood of his family's line have any right to carry their name. He grew up on his mother's stories about the greatness of the Adravendi bloodline, but seeing how far they have fallen has jaded him. Clearly the practice of adopting lesser bloodlines into the family had diluted the proud lineage into something tame, something... weak. After all, hadn't his grandmother Epiphron's adopted 'brother' betrayed the family? The family's misfortune could, in his mind, be clearly traced to his great-grandfather's habit of adopting every stray that crossed his path. He concluded at a very young age that the only way for the Adravendis to get to the top would be to purge the bloodline of all weakness and all pretenders - a rather lofty goal for a wee pup.

Possessive - Artur is crazy possessive. Once he has decided that something - or more importantly, someONE - belongs to him, or to someone he cares about, there is no changing his mind. He will fight like hell to keep what is his. In this, he has a tendency to think of wolves as POSSESSIONS, rather than individuals.

Hot tempered - It doesn't take much to rile this pup. He's quick to take offense over little things, quick to read insult where none was intended. Teasing that others would take as playful only serves to inflame his temper further. He hates, HATES, being teased in any way. This leads him to work from a very young age to control his body, humiliation and fury at his puppy-body's clumsiness, regardless of whether or not someone was there to see it, let alone say anything about it.

Cold - When his temper flares, he hoards that fire close to his heart, projecting instead a cold exterior that just gets chillier the angrier he gets. This may give the impression that he ISN'T really angry if you aren't paying attention. He doesn't even make the effort to project this icy persona in an effort to be "cool" so to speak, but rather it's just a natural manifestation of his temper. Some people yell when they get angry, some people cry, but Artur just gets very, very quiet, and very, very cold.

Manipulative - This, Artur tries very hard at, but he is somewhat handicapped in his ability to be manipulative due to his overwhelming pride in himself. He cannot bring himself to pretend to be anything but what he is, so he has few options to lean on in manipulating people other than observation and fear. He has no problem lying, none at all, but he will not lower himself to pretending to be weak even to get what he wants.

Not all of this is bad, just that many of his traits can be taken to the extreme. His loyalty can be heartwarming, when not taken as fanaticism. His pride in his bloodline springs from a reverence for his ancestors despite their faults, and a desire to see his mother and siblings given the recognition and the life he feels they all deserve. His possessiveness leads him to protect those he cares about from harm. It's his obsessiveness and natural coldness that leads these traits to the extreme and elevates his behavior to that of a fanatic.personality
