coat

Darkness swallows this man from the ground up. The darkest black coats each of his legs and stains his stomach, throat, and underside of his tail. From there, you can see a slightly lighter shade come into play across the other features of his body. It almost appears as if a spotlight is consistently shining on him from above. Throughout his scruff and down his spine there are a mix of lighter, more silvery hairs that catch the light in certain angles as well as darker flecks of black. A black stripe frames each side of his muzzle, running from the inner corner of his eyes down to his nose to reunite with the black that covers his throat and chin.

eyes

His eyes are his pride and joy as much as they are his confusion. They are the window to his soul and the only feature to really stand out against the dark background that is his fur. Rich, blood red takes over his right eye, giving an indication of his tendencies to follow in his father’s footsteps. Meanwhile, his left eye shows a surprising turquoise blue, showing the often dangerous intelligence and wisdom that he inherited from his mother.

physique

Long limbs make up much of this man’s height, pushing his stature to fourty two inches tall. While he is by no means thin, he doesn’t tend to carry much bulk either. He is somewhere in the middle with a physique of firm, wiry muscle made for endurance and running. Even his build and stature tend to lend well to his love of hunting. He was born to he a handsome man that can just as easily pull attention as he can blend into the shadows.

unique atributes

Even at a young age, Casso has begun to collect scars across his body. There are smaller ones from mishaps he has had while practicing his skills at hunting and fighting, but most of those are hidden by his fur. The ones that even his thick, dark fur can’t hide are splashed across his face, around the left ankle of his foreleg, and the largest of all cuts across his left shoulder. The stories behind those scars are ones he does not like to tell, but the evidence can not be missed. Scars in the shape of wolf bite marks marr his leg, forming spots where the fur no longer grows. Similar scars mark his left cheek and his brow right above his blue eye. Long, jagged scars that clearly came from a much larger opponent than the previous scars start at the edge of his chest and run all the way across his left shoulder, stopping at the beginning of his rib cage.appearance


Even from a young age his high drive for the hunt is apparent. The most obvious of this is his love for taking down prey - particularly larger, more difficult targets. The easy catches and weak members of the herd are of no interest to him. He loves a challenge in most areas of his life, but this in particular is where he revels in the most enjoyment of it. Something else he craves just as much, sometimes even more, is knowledge. This doesn’t typically show itself in the ways you might expect. Learning about various topics during training is fine and good, but that’s easy pickings as far as he’s concerned. What interests him most is information about others that live around him. He is highly calculating and at times manipulating. He sees the obvious value in being physically intemidating, but in his opinion even more value lies in blackmail and deception. Because of this, he is extremely careful with his actions and will only ever reveal anything of importance to those he trusts fully. He can seem quite distant to those that he isn’t as familiar with until they have earned a place in his trusted circle.

At times his desires don’t feel like his own and it’s hard to distinguish if what he’s feeling is real or not. His thoughts always tend to feel cluttered and hard to focus on and bursts of anger are common when he’s stressed. After a violent accident right after his first year these messy thoughts grow their own voices - a loud clattering of voices all trying to grab his attention. He embraces the few loudest voices and frequently heeds their advice when they give it. His own doubts often seem reflected and multiplied in their words. Some voices are more violent than others while some seem seem more thoughtful and wise.

He struggles to control or ignore them and sometimes forgets whether the voices are his own thoughts or not. His only comfort is the belief taught to him by his father that ancient demons thrive in the souls of their family. He firmly believes that the voices he hears are the demons competing for his attention, given that his eye color should indicate the type of demon living within him and he has somehow been gifted with two eye colors and two types of demons. Even as his faith in their other beliefs and practices falters, this one he holds on to dearly since it gives him a continent reason for the voice’s existence.

He is incredibly quick witted. In the moments when he’s alone with someone he trusts and not so concerned about watching his actions and his language, he can be very funny with sharp retorts and fast one liners. This is the same part of him that makes it easy for him to mold himself to fit whatever the situation calls for. He only actively tries to deceive someone when it would end in a major benifit for himself or someone he cares for.

Perhaps the way that he was raised has something to do with this, but Casso pretty much always seems older than his years. He matures very quickly and puts a lot of pressure on himself to rise up to his own lofty expectations. He has grand goals and desires for his life and he begins to grow restless if he doesn’t feel like he’s making any progress or see any pay off for his hard work.personality
