Callum Knight

Callum Knight (née Callum Garcia-Knight) is the son of Neela Garcia and Tony Marino-Knight, born in Casa di Cavalieri in September 2012 alongside his siblings, Luca, Grynn, Isla. He became a member of New Dawn at the rank of Epsilon: Warrior and mate to Veyra Damaichu in June 2014. They had their first litter in August 2014, comprised of four boys, Marius, Harlequin, Munroe, and Eros. Since New Dawn's disbandment at the hands of Anathema in August 2015, Callum, Veyra, Marius, and Munroe have lived in Casa di Cavalieri where he currently holds the rank of Famiglia Seconda.

PLOT OPPORTUNITY!

OOC ASSUMPTIONS!

  • Callum is Balia, or Pup-sitter, for Casa di Cavalieri. Any Pocos want to play with Callum?

  • Practicing with his sword in the training rings
  • Working with Milité
  • Hunting
  • Encounters along the borders

1.  Appearance

1.1  Basics

Essentials

  • Species: Callum mostly resembles a wolf, but his muzzle is slender, favoring his mother's collie and setter ancestry. Someone skilled at detecting the differences in species could probably detect his dog ancestry.
  • Fur: Cal's fur is normal for a wolf, but with a very small amount of feathering at his elbows and rump in Lupus form.
    • Optime Hair: Cal usually wears his hair cut and styled into messy spikes, usually not aided by any type of fixative. Cut tends to be sloppy as he usually does this himself.
  • Facial Features: Slender, slightly longer muzzle as compared to a full wolf.
  • Build and Size: Cal is big, in all three forms, and carries himself confidently.
    • Lupus: Cal stands well above most other wolves and the fact that he is strong is evident in his muscular shoulders and haunches.
    • Optime: In Optime, Cal shows off the height he inherited from his family as well as the upper body strength that he has gained from his weapon studies in Casa. He is heavy, and therefore somewhat slow, but it is because of his broad shoulders and muscular physique rather than excess fat.
  • Humanization: Callum is highly humanized when among other humanized wolves, but since living in New Dawn he has gotten in touch with his feral side. He wears few regular clothes because of his size, but is not against wearing a few Accessories.

Coloration

  • Fur:
    • Callum is primarily Alabaster.
  • Markings:
    • Patch of darker fur over left ear, left eye, part of forehead, and cheek/jaw area in Cod Grey
  • Eyes: Flamenco
  • Optime Hair: Gallery, streaked where it touches his patch with Cod Grey
    • Nose and Paw Pads: Asphalt

Palette

Alabaster (#FAFAFA)
Gallery (#EFEFEF)
Cod Grey (#191919)
Flamenco (#FF7D07)
Asphalt (#130A06)

1.2  Miscellaneous

Modifications

  • Scars:
    • By Vidar
      • Teeth mark ring in the loose skin that connects thigh to body on the right hind leg. The wounds are not perfect; they ripped downward. Distorted somewhat in Optime but always visible.
      • Small scars dot his scruff and the sides of his neck, mostly hidden in all forms.
      • Thin, lacy scars along both forelegs. Nearly invisible unless looked for.
    • By Kalidas Tam
      • Outer, upper left arm, vertical scar from a knife wound. Partially hidden by fur in Secui form, mostly visible in the other forms.
    • By Kentaro Lykoi, Theron Caine, Ocke, and Gideon. All visible in all forms.
      • Slash across face from above left eye to right cheek, from a dagger.
      • Puncture scar from arrow in the pocket of his left shoulder.
      • Four mostly-parallel slash marks from his right shoulder to his chest, from claws.
      • Two almost-identical slashes from just behind his back around his sides to his abdomen, from Kentaro's kamas
      • Punctures in right calf from a bite; no ripping.
  • Piercings: None
  • Tattoos: None

Adornments

TO BE FLESHED OUT you can stick more description about their humanization and how they practice it here. or don't! by the way, you might want to adjust the cell widths here: 33/33/33 gives you even columns etc. do the math out of 100% of course :D

Forms

Lupus

Secui

Optime

160 lbs (73 kg)
41 in (104 cm) tall
66 in (168 cm) long

250 lbs (113 kg)
48 in (122 cm) tall
75 in (191 cm) long

280 lbs (128 kg)
7ft 6in (90 in) (229 cm)

Callum's least used form, as he prefers either the bulk of his Secui or the use of hands in Optime.

Looks a bit like a mini-polar bear in Secui. Fur stands stiffly on top of his head.

Callum's favorite form for its versatility. Mane is cut and styled into messy spikes, usually not aided by any type of fixative. Cut tends to be sloppy as Cal usually does this himself.

Interaction

  • Speech: Though he has never been to Scotland, Jazper and Tony's brogue stuck with Callum -- he emulated their speech even when he was young and now speaks with a passable Scottish accent that thickens when he is upset or angry. Direct immigrants from Scotland could probably detect a difference between their own speech and his. Voice model: Graham McTavish as Dwalin, from The Hobbit Movies
  • Scent: Casa di Cavalieri, Knight family, Veyra, pine sap, horse
  • Quirks, Gestures, Etc.: oh man what a weirdo
  • General Posture and Body Language: Callum is aware of his height and breadth and his body language, generally confident, shows it. He can be physically imposing if he wishes to make himself so, but has also learned when to make himself smaller to soothe a smaller creature's nerves.

A brief (1-3 paragraphs) personality description goes here. It'd probably be best to write this last, since you should pull key traits out of the rest of your information and then put it here. This section is good to stick in your forum profile as their "Personality" section.
