Mutation #1 - While Tyrian's over-sized canines are likely to catch and hold the attention, there's more to his mutation than that. On the mandible there's a sizable gap between his incisors and molars to accommodate his upper canines, and while the molars themselves are pretty standard, Tyrian's incisors are not. They're broad; the upper ones slightly longer and sharper than the bottom ones, and curve in slightly.

The narrow, wedge-shaped upper canines curve back towards his body, are lightly serrated on the front and back, and taper to sharp points. They protrude from his upper lip by about three inches.

Thanks to a face full of weirdly strong and elastic muscles, Tyrian is capable of opening his jaws very wide. This enables him to not only eat normally but to fully utilize his over-sized canines.

Mutation #2 There's one other odd thing about Tyrian. Unlike his fangs, these mutations will probably go unnoticed unless they're in use. His paws, from retractable claws to bean toes, are 100% feline. Naturally they look a bit too big for him, but when faced with razor sharp saber-teeth it's likely that these well padded footers will go unnoticed by all by the most eagle-eyed.

Build - Tyrian is an even mixture of elegance and power. His features are angular, proud and indicative of his gender, but not so overly masculine as to appear brutish. Expressive, almond-shaped eyes gentle what might otherwise be a face predisposed to arrogance. Build-wise he is athletic with sturdy limbs and a deep chest that tapers up to narrow hips.

Coat - The vast majority of his coat is a very dark speckled slate that fades gently and smoothly into lighter shades of blue-gray. On his neck the dark slate tapers down into a thin dotted line of silver that eventually blossoms into a large diamond-shaped patch on his chest. From there the color bleed down his belly in a thin line before swooping up the hollows of his waist and thighs, and curving up towards his spine like the crest of a wave. A similar transition happens to the silver on his forelegs; the crest curves upwards along the backs of them and down on the fronts; and to the dark slate on his hind legs. His forelegs have dark slate stocking and his hind legs have silver ones.

Like his sire and great dam, Tyrian boasts familiar facial markings. His muzzle is medium blue-grey and topped with a dark slate blaze that runs from his nose to the middle of his forehead. Under each eye are four dark slate dots that start at the corner of his eye and get progressively smaller towards his nose.

Thanks to his mother, each dark hair is banded with silver. In strong lighting this gives his coat a slick violet sheen as light reflects off the silver bands.

Eyes - His eyes are pale, glacier blue.

appearance
Proud - Loyal - Capricious - Hedonistic - Contrary - Blasé - Feisty

From a young age Tyrian grew up hearing about his family’s achievements. He’s proud of his heritage and determined to achieve as much notoriety as his parents. This pride shows. His confidence is casual and natural, and is apparent in everything he does.

That natural swagger is paired with a capricious and blasé attitude. Most of the time he is good-natured if a little feisty; content to laugh at himself if he deserves it, but always ready with a sly retort; however his pride is a stumbling block he just can’t get away from. Insults are rarely well received and Tyrian is inclined to retaliate excessively in order to right the wrongs that have been done to him.

Equal parts lover and fighter, Tyrian is hedonistic and unabashedly pursues the things that bring him joy, be it the company of others or a fight on the field. In his opinion, life is short and thus wasting it is a shame. He is mindful of his family’s legacy and there are boundaries he accepts willingly, but the world is his to play with and he intends to enjoy all it has to offer.

His personality, like the color of his coat, tends to change depending on the situation he finds himself in. He can be fun-loving and good-natured one second and then cold and dismissive the next. His behavior depends entirely on his opinion of whoever he is dealing with. With those he dislikes he is willfully contrary and all too eager to make sacrifices if it means undermining an enemy. In his opinion revenge is a dish best served with a mean-spirited laugh.

personality
The name Tyrian comes from a shade of purple that was once reserved for royalty. It was so closely associated with emperors that children born to them were commonly said to have been "born in the purple."

Zahir Description She is 24" tall and has long, oversized upper canines very much like a smilodon (saber-toothed cat) thanks to the radioactive waste dumped long ago by humans. Her canines are roughly 6" long. Like a smilodon, Zahir is capable of opening her mouth far wider than most snow leopards, allowing her to use her canines like serrated spears when hunting and fighting.

Her teeth aren't the only way Zahir diverges from her kind. She has a base coat of deep navy over which black spots are spread out haphazardly. Her belly, inner legs, toes and the underside of her tail are all a sharp, bluish silver. The same color is splashed on her cheeks, lips and around her eyes. Lighter blues mix and meld with the navy on her forehead, forelegs and tail. Her eyes are a deep red.
