1.  Appearance

This hybrid's appearance yells out 'villainous', even though his personality would deny it (that personality would also deny heroism, however, so it isn't saying much). Red eyes seemingly searching for something that will never be there, upon a body covered in a dark coat of fur. Though mostly a blackish dark gray, there is the tint of dark brown and light gray in various places as well. Such as his muzzle, and the tips of his ears. He may not be the most muscular male out in the wild, but he can definitely take care of himself. His body seems to rely a little more on speed more than strength, but not by much. He's more muscular around his abdomen and legs than his arms. Tall, his fur is straight, smooth and mostly soft to the touch, neither especially short nor long. He is nearly always tense and nearly bristled in posture, though he may attempt and succeed at losing this air when he tries to appear submissive to a higher rank. He is most calm when asleep. He definitely gives off the appearance that he can take care of himself.

1.1  Build and Species

Blake mostly appears of his wolf heritage, albeit he has small traits that give off the fact that he has some dog in him, too. Most notably, his muzzle is a little skinnier and slightly longer than most wolves.

1.2  Coloration

  • Main Fur Color: Tundora (approx.) (#494949), with Fuscous Gray (approx.) (#544D45) mixed in (naturally).
  • Ear Tips: Fuscous Gray (approx.) (#544D45)
  • Muzzle: Schooner (approx.) (#8C83795)
  • Eyes: Stiletto (approx.) (#963333).

1.3  Forms

Lupus

Secui

Optime

136 lbs (60 kg)
38 in (100 cm)

256 lbs (114 kg)
46 in (120 cm)

271 lbs (121 kg)
7ft 0in (84 in) (216 cm)

The least used of his three forms, but this form is where his scars seem to stand out the most, even if just for the size difference.

Preferred form while alone. Used for traveling and hunting mainly.

The idea of styling his hair is odd to Blake, so he does not choose to do it. However, he may, accidentally or not, ruffle up his 'mane' a little, giving a slight twinge of style.

2.  Personality

He might seem suspicious, even untrustworthy, but if it's one thing he's not, it's a traitor. He would rather be tortured than turn his back on his family, friends, or pack. There is a quiet, observant edge to the male, he seems like a broody character. Though somewhat prickly or on the other side of the coin, talkative, if the right buttons are pushed, he is a mostly closed off individual who doesn't like to reveal a lot of information about himself -- a loner. While he doesn't have anything against working in groups, after all, what is a canine that holds disdain their pack instinct; it's a little hard for him to "fit in", per say.

Blake is almost bordering on socially awkward or shy, but he has a balance of calm and collected that helps him appear more dignified. Initially, he is friendly with strangers (problems with expression aside), however reserved he may be he has a healthy amount of confidence. There is also a hidden dark side to the male though his intentions are usually knightly. He is no stranger to hurting or even killing another. He can be brutal with his snappy remarks in an argument, or his lack of mercy in a brawl.

2.1  Demeanor

  • Mature - looking, looks older than he really is.
  • Never relaxed. Very tense.
  • May come off as intimidating to smaller creatures, specifically pups.

2.2  Ideals

Interests

  • Likes: Reading, multi-tasking, working hard, traveling, practicing, learning new things.
  • Dislikes: Untrustworthy folk, being betrayed in any way, aggressive or murderous folk.

Traits

  • Outlook: Realistic about matters that don't consider him, pessimistic about things that do (especially love).
  • Expression: Introvert, will be mostly dominant towards those lower in rank (if he belongs to a pack) or smaller than him, but knows when to be submissive.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good

Fears

  • Being mocked by someone he cares about, losing a limb, being disgraced or rejected by a pack / group.

Motivations

  • Peace, control (not necessarily power), freedom.

Biases

  • Packs: Wary and aggressive to Salsola members. Anathema also, but to a lesser extent. Doesn't know a lot about Inferni, and is a little suspicious but friendly to them nonetheless. Finds Cercatori and AniWaya members to be worthy of respect, more friendly towards them. Also somewhat more friendly to Sangi'lak members as X'yrin is one of the first canines he met. Little to no knowledge about other packs.
  • Species: He is not really "racist" against any species, but he has a habit of treating coyotes and jackals like he would a pup because of the size difference. This is not on purpose however, and if confronted about it Blake would be confused but try to stop.
  • Non-Luperci: Extremely unfamiliar with Non-Luperci. If they put him on edge, and give him a sign that they are not 'infected', he may even try to turn them, by injury, against their will...maybe. He's not all nice...
  • Gender: Being raised in a family pack where male and females were treated (mostly) as equals, he has no bias against women, despite this it still hurts his pride to think about a female beating him in a battle.
  • Color: No bias.
  • Sexuality: No bias.
  • Age: Not really a bias, but he tends to think pups are inexperienced and looks down on them (but is not mean to them, simply sees them as a lesser).

Sexuality

Bisexual, he supposes, but with a very strong preference for women. Blake is very good at holding back sexual urges and covering them up, and in that sense if things come to their worst sometimes may just run off without explanation from an attractive looking canine as a last resort. He does not actively seek out sexual relationships, and rarely speaks about them. As for being nervous...it depends. If he's sure that the other likes him, or is at least convinced that's the truth, he may even be confident and flirty, but if he has the slightest doubt he will be shy and quiet around a potential partner.

Substances

Blake does not approve of usage of certain substances, and frankly tries to avoid any type of character that does use them. However, two of the things he is indifferent towards is alcohol and cigarettes. Perhaps, if asked or pressured, he would try one of those, but other than that, he dislikes hearing anything about it.

Spirituality

The wolfdog is not a religious person by any means, but is intrigued by spirituality and usually wishes to learn more about different kinds of it. He does believe in ghosts and life after death but not strongly, he also does not do any rituals of any sort.

3.  Interaction

  • Speech: His voice is rough, and gruff, but not to the point of unpleasant. Most of the time, you'll have to make eye contact to see what he's really feeling, as he naturally does not display too much emotion in his voice, unless said emotion is strong. Only slightly deeper than average.
  • Scent: Forest.

4.4  Former Relations

  • Aspirin: She was one of the first canines Blake met upon traveling into 'Souls. They became close friends, maybe more, and he cared for her deeply. However, she seems to have disappeared, leaving Blake distraught and prickly, and then causing him to depart to look for her.

4.7  Abilities

Strengths

  • Resilience (Master): Blake has always been compelled to keep going throughout his whole life, not because there was a lot of hope, and not because of any desire to keep living through hardships. But it was simply something ingrained in him from birth, and as such, even if you rip every last precious thing away from him, he will never roll over and die.
  • Fighting - Claws and Fangs (Master): Since he was a pup old enough to understand it, Blake has been interested in self - defense. He very often got into play fights with his litter, and when he grew up to a young boy, he did a friendly tussle with a pack mate every other day. The hybrid got tastes of 'real' fights, too, loners that crossed onto his territory were sometimes unwelcome and stubborn. Experienced to the point of a master and can teach, but still has room for improvement.
  • Reading/Writing (Master): An art that was practiced frequently within his previous family pack. Not done as frequently as fighting was, but he quickly caught on to it, and his vocabulary has significantly increased over the years. Only a few complicated words he does not recognize -- and when he writes it tends to be very formal.
  • Grounds Keeper (Apprentice): Started to become interested in repairing and gardening. Knows how to take care of most plants that reside in the gardens of Casa. Still seems to retain most of the information, even after some time has passed.
  • Fighting - Hand-To-Hand Combat (Dabbler): Only fought this way once or twice. Can throw a simple punch or kick before trying to shift to Secui form, that's about it.

Weaknesses

  • Fighting - Weapons (Very Harmful): Coming from a feral pack, with few human-like aspects, he never really saw the need for weapons. Very new to the idea of them, and frightened by the fact that someone could easily have an advantage over him due to his limited knowledge on the subject, he steers clear of anything else besides his own dagger.
  • Child Care (Harmful): No experience with pup-sitting or anything of the sort. Gets annoyed very easily by stubborn kids.
  • Social Skills (Harmful): It's hard for him to be sympathetic towards others, and he may have trouble with any expression besides a small smirk, smile or a neutral one.

4.8  Inventory

6.  History

When he first traveled into the area, Blake was immediately interested in a pack, a home to give him purpose. After meeting multiple members of packs, he decided Casa di Cavalieri was best suited for him and headed towards their territory. He met Neela Garcia, whom, after he stated his business and gave gifts, accepted him into the pack. He remained there for a few months before leaving Nova Scotia unexpectedly to go search for Aspirin whom he had not seen. Due to her being captured he could not find her, and returned to the outskirts of the Nova Scotia area, conflicted about whether or not he should return.
