Growing up, Takeshi will sprout into the same height as his father, standing at a terrifying height of 45". His form is lean and strong, built with compact muscle from hard work and excellent genetics. His body is cloaked in medium length, inky black fur, particularly on his faces and his legs. Along the back of his neck all the way to his rump, a dark navy blue melts in with the dark hue and vaguely offsetting the pitch blackness that he's covered in. Along his shoulders, rump and tail, light silvery grey spotting can be seen.

Beneath his fiery red eyes are the same markings that be seen on his mother's face, though instead of being colored in a soft white, they're the same color as his eyes. More silvery white stripes along his snout and dots his eyes brows, even going so far as to color his paw pads, a genetic anomaly inherited from his father's side of the family. Like most of his lineage, he hosts some patches of koi-like markings, but instead of these markings being fur, they're covered in hard, thick, shimmery red scales. These scales cover most of his 'vital' points, such as his neck, his upper back, his sides and his stomach, protecting him from the claws of most wolves and their teeth (unless they should be enhanced, such as with talons or saber teeth).

Looking at Takēshi, one would surely think he's a beast from the depths of hell. This is reinforced by the pair of melanistic ram horns that sprout from his head, curling around his ears and sharpening to a fine point at the ends. His scales, eyes and the inside of his mouth also possess bioluminescence, making him looks like he's formed from pure hellfire from the inside with a fiery red glow. He is able to mute his bioluminescence when he needs to, such as when he's hunting, and it does die down when he's sleeping, but once he's awake it comes roaring back to life and he doesn't like to 'shut it off' because it's mentally taxing.

It's important to note that he is verbally mute, meaning he cannot speak. This will be apparent from a young age, where it will be noticed that he is unable to form words with his mouth for reasons unknown. However, he understands perfectly well when spoken to and is able to communicate through more primitive methods, such as chuffs, growls, barks, body language, and expression, as well as being able to write.

appearance

Despite his menacing appearance, Takēshi is much more a lover than a fighter. He's a very 'go with the flow' type of guy which, combined with his inability to speak, makes him seem like he may be incompetent. However, once one gets to know him they'll realize that he's actually quite bright. The boy will always be a listening ear and a shoulder to lean on for those he trusts, though earning that trust is easier said than done. Withdrawn most of the time, Take prefers to spend his time with his family and one of his favorite hobbies is listening to his sister, Iki, play her instrument. This preference for his family makes him hard to get close to because he believes he already has everything he needs right in front of him.

His fearsome appearance isn't just for show, though. Messing with the wolves he cares about will result in a very swift and violent punishment, which he will carry out without sympathy. Whatever orders are given to him by his mother or father will be followed through without question because he believes that whatever they say is for the greater good. Needless to say, he is an obedient soldier with rose-colored glasses.

Because he's unable to speak, Take has learned to emote himself with expressions. From childhood he was quick to learn the value of this skill, but this also means he's able to control his expression easily. If he wants to be, he's an open book, but he's able to slam a wall down with a blank expression when he judges it time to.
