Casimir Soul is a sensitive yet dutiful soldier boy, secretly longing for a life of peace. It's a pity he inherited both his father's and grandfather's talent for combat.

He returned to Salsola proper in the Spring of 2020, although he is reluctant to say why, exactly.


1.  Personality

1.1  Overview

Summary

Sensitive, dutiful, and sad, Casimir is not the first person you'd expect to be a devil on the battlefield. Both early instruction and a natural affinity for the sword gave way to his development as a soldier, and his talents quickly blossomed into a deadly proficiency. Unfortunately, this is not something he finds enjoyable — far from it, in fact.

For one reason or another, he is unwilling to take his life into his own hands. He holds to the belief that duty to family and Kingdom comes before himself. How could he deny his father's legacy to pursue his true passion: nurturing small, helpless animals back to health?

Traits

  • Demeanor: Sad, stoic, forlorn, resigned, compliant
  • Speech: Low, gentle, and kind. He is fluent in Common (English) and Spanish.
  • Scent: Floral, grassy
  • Outlook: Depressed
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
Well-being of the group put ahead of the individual on almost every occasion
Will act as they should given their station
Will uphold the law regardless of whether it is considered just
Will also maintain their own sense of honor

1.2  Detail

Interests

  • Likes: Baby animals, kids, gardens, sunlight, books, warm fires, naps under trees
  • Dislikes: Fighting, conflict, war, lightning & thunder (afraid of it)

Biases

Casimir doesn't think very highly of outsiders due to his experiences in Portland. He wouldn't know what to make of non-luperci, or those who fall outside the norms of his society, but he wouldn't necessarily reject them.

Motivations and Fears

Casimir is motivated by a strong sense of duty and a big dollop of guilt. Considered a "prodigy" of sorts when he was young, he now struggles with the expectation to pursue this path as he finds the activity joyless. He feels shame if anyone takes pride in his abilities.

Casimir fears letting anyone down or not being ready to help at a critical moment. He loves his family deeply, and believes that since he gave his word to always protect them that he is bound to this duty.

Sexuality

Casimir is bisexual and conflicted about it. He is conflicted about romance in general. While he fantasizes of a peaceful life with someone as beautiful as his mother, he is afraid and hopeless about the future, believing that inevitable conflict will either leave him a widower or his future partner widowed.

Substances

Casimir will drink, but instead of opening up, it just makes him very quiet until he falls asleep.

He does not otherwise smoke or take edible substances. No one's ever offered him any.

Spirituality

Casimir believes in no gods, no goddesses, no spirits, no afterlife, nothing. He believes there is absolutely nothing waiting for him on the other side, and this greatly colors his worldview.


2.  Appearance

2.1  Basics

Overview

Casimir is agile and well-built. His somber mien tends to detract from his considerable height and abilities; he definitely does not strike fear into the hearts of men or women. He's been told he is handsome, but he thinks people are just being nice to him.

Fur
Casimir has a short coat that is soft to the touch. He's been told to resemble both his mother and father equally. The slender snout and long ears are from his father's side, while his coloration is similar to his mother. Casimir has an athletic runner's build, with lean, strong muscle. He keeps his hair cut short around the sides and a little longer on top. It has a natural wave to it that makes him look kind of breezy.

Humanization
While he was raised to feel most comfortable in his humanized form, Casimir will on occasion shift down to his secui or lupus forms to hunt or nap.

3.3  Salsola Relationships

  • Casimir has known Clementine Salcedo since they were children. Of his cousins, Clem seems to understand him the best. Her kindness does not go unnoticed, although Casimir is far too shy to acknowledge it outright. He has a soft spot for her, and looks out for her in his own way.
  • There is a lot to be said about Lyra Salcedo, but Casimir knows she wasn't always like how she is now. He's willing to put up with her abusive behavior because part of him believes there is good in her, just covered in layers and layers of hurt.
  • In many ways, Baltasar Salcedo feels like a younger brother to Casimir. He is content to follow along with his shenanigans and humor him when the situation calls for it. He passively looks after him and tries to make sure that he doesn't get into too much trouble.
