The last lingering light of smoldering embers are always marbled in deep russet, charcoal, and black. Only faltering in the fault lines where the heat of fire remains. Aresenn’s base color is a very dark red, Mixed beneath highlights and lowlights of ginger, blonde, dark brown. For markings, he has off white patch at his throat and chin. It edges beneath his tail, and lines all four stockings. Though, the focal points of his face are helmed in black. Peeking through the slits, are eyes of orange. As an adult, he will be 36" tall, and will carry a heavy build with carefully toned muscling ... however we still got a ways to go before he sheds his rounded pup features.
appearance

OBSESSIVE // PERFECTIONIST. Aresenn is driven, focused, and active in achieving the goals he has set before himself. Though, his fear of inadequacy tends to be the primary force behind most of his obsessions. Those closest to him should grow accustomed to taking a back seat to whatever he is working on at the moment, as he is never satisfied with the way things are. Always looking to make improvements to his procedures as he goes along: he is diligent, persistent, and will do whatever it takes to attain his ideals. However, there will be times when he may fail to see that his goals are unrealistic. His inability to accept anything less than perfection often sets him up for failure on his own set standard- gearing him up for a vicious cycle of disappointment in himself and general self-loathing.

- Reluctant to admit when a mistake has been made.
- Has control issues.
- Possessive.
- Hypersensitive to criticism.
- Tends to focus on weaknesses rather than strengths.
- Gets angry at praise when he feels that is undeserved.
- Extremely protective of anything having to do with his current obsession.

EVASIVE && UNCOMMUNITATIVE. It is far easier for Aresenn to slip into the role of a listener over anything else. He is certainly not one to share and tell when it comes to the deeply rooted thoughts, feelings, or other parts of his life. More or less, he’s guarded, with an ingrained hesitance of opening up. It will be difficult to establish any kind of emotional connection with him in his adult life. Some may assume that he is self-absorbed. Others may reject him when their attempts at connection are rebuffed. Likewise, he’ll have a hard time reaching out and pursuing friendships or love interests … if he has any interest to do so at all.

- Uses light manipulation to divert attention from himself.  
- Doesn’t share his motives out of acceptance that others will not understand.
- Allows emotion to build internally rather than expressing them.
- Avoids crowd settings.

ANALYTICAL && LOGICAL. Aresenn is a thinker, and tries harder to see deeper into a problem than someone else might. He enjoys the process of metaphorically reducing an object or issue to its base components in order to see what’s working, and what needs improvement. He works well alone, is dedicated and intelligent, and is a strong problem solver. Unfortunately, he does have the tendency to get lost in the details and miss the big picture. His mind is always working, which can make things difficult when it comes time to wind down and relax. In his line of work, he’s constantly posing what if? questions. The purpose is: to answer as many inquiries as he can ask himself. To be constantly learning himself, and enjoying the pursuit of information. Because of this, he would make a halfway decent teacher if he didn’t have such an aversion to social settings.

- Corrects any misinformation or misconceptions he encounters.
- Struggles with small talk.
- Needs to understand the “why” behind a process or action to be able to perform.
- Takes interest in the potential chain reaction of decision making.

ABRASIVE && CALLOUS. Aresenn has no difficulty focusing on his goals when faced with the white noise of others around him. On more of a casual basis, his lack of concern for any kind of social matter makes him truly transparent: you usually know exactly what he’s thinking because he doesn’t care enough to hide it. Because of how detached he’s become, it may be easier for him to navigate devastating circumstances when compared to someone less hardened. Decisions that others may find difficult over personal involvement, are a lot more black and white for him with his very little emotional attachment. Most of his relationships will be superficial at best. He lacks empathy and doesn’t feel the same impact when faced with traumatic events. And it may be easy for him to hurt another’s feelings without even realizing (or caring) that he’s done so.

- Shows impatience with others.
- Not caring about or picking up on social cues.
- Has an aversion to physical touch.
- Expresses frustration and disdain at the perceived neediness of others.

CONTROLLING && HAUGHTY. He is relentless when it comes to his pursuit of perfection. And in that, he may push his family members and few close relationships to do the same. But because of his controlling nature, he can be overly critical of others. He has a hard time delegating work to others, believing that no one could perform as well as he could in certain fields. He has become overly confident in his abilities, truly believing himself to be in the right. When faced with a challenging situation, rest assured that he will be one of the first ones to rise to the task. He is bold when speaking opinions, and unafraid to take action to further his beliefs and values. And he can certainly be counted on to put forward ideas and opinions when leadership or decision-making is needed.

- Maintains a steady drive to succeed.
- Avoids activities where he must be subservient to another.
- Possessive in the few personal relationships he’s able to maintain (mainly of close family, or romantic interests)
- Highly responsible with tasks that he finds important.

PERCEPTIVE && STRATEGIC. Aresenn has excellent observational skills, and is accurately able to assess what is coming down the road and how to prepare for it. An astute problem solver, it takes him no time to arrive at a solution. By taking care of problems before they occur, he can spend his time focusing on more important tasks rather than dealing with the fallout that comes from lack of planning and foresight. Because he’s likely to follow the path of least resistance, he can have a hard time with those who don’t do the same. He can also become impatient when others miss what he can obviously see. But like everyone else, he does have his blind spots and may become ensnared in false information.

- Proactively makes changes or decisions in order to protect himself and those he cares for.
- Knows himself accurately and intimately.
- Generally sizes up a situation as quickly as he can.
- Actively looks for the change in a pattern. .
❝Don’t let the ever rolling motion go and get you down
Don’t let it shake your steady thread cutting hand
Keep stealing ribbons from the steel and giving hell❞


❝When everyday’s like a war between the will to go on
And a wish that the world would spiral into the sun
Turn your head toward the storm that’s surely coming along❞
