Keylo was born to Adonia Demos and Zalen Damaichu on November 6, 2012. He was born with a brother, Kerrian Demos, and a stillborn sister. They were conceived outside of mateship, due instead to a mutual desire for offspring from two wolves that had recently lost their mates. The litter's survival was a miracle, as Adonia had days before nearly burned to death in a fire set by Amy Sunders during the New Dawn Conflict. As the Alpha's son he grew up privileged and treasured by all the pack.
In January 2013, Adonia and Kerrian went missing, and Keylo feared he was abandoned. They later returned to reveal that they were attacked by a bear and needed time to recover, but it left a rift in their family with Keylo trusting Zalen over his mother. Ciara becomes an important maternal influence, replacing Adonia in his heart. Keylo never got a chance to repair his relationship with Adonia - that summer he was the one to find her remains, and was horrified to realize his mother was dead. Keylo was shaken and lashed out at his father and brother, but in time his emotional wounds healed and he forged a closer bond with those he had left. Although he is still deeply fond of her, his love for Ciara changed as he aged in a way that he does not yet know.
Krys Sawtooth was the most poignant of these bonds, because what started as an innocent childhood friendship blossomed into much more. Krys was kidnapped and held hostage in the Stellarton Mines?, and Keylo headed a rescue party to save her. A wildfire razed the land during a pack hunt, and Keylo carried aquaphobic Krys across the river to safety. As fall turned to winter, Krys went into heat, and Keylo finally realized his romantic feelings for her. He requested his father's permission to make her his mate. But that relationship abruptly ended when Krys – unable to control herself during her heat cycle – entertained the advances of another member of the pack. Heartbroken, Keylo disowned her as his female.
Keylo’s future is uncertain, now. Although he always displayed some alpha-like tendencies, he is lost without those that he held so dear to him. The tight knit pack that he knew in his youth has spread out, gone missing, or have passed on to the next realm. Now he is lost – a wanderer – pretending to be a free spirit, as footloose and worry free as always – but deep down, the former Prince of the Dawn is haunted by the grief of the past.
What does the future have to offer a lost prince?
Most known for his sense of taking jack shit seriously, Keylo has been quite the joker throughout his life. He is adventurous to a fault, protective, and very much a troublesome boy. His primal wolf instincts run strong within him, and he is very likely to usually act more like a hyper intelligent wolf rather than the more human like personalities of his Luperci kin. A goofball by trade, he is quite likely to try to lighten up any situation, calm parties involved, or crack a joke ESPECIALLY when it is inappropriate – and the cruder, the better.
He cares deeply for those he is close to. There is no such thing as an acquaintance. Every friend becomes family, and everybody else is just static. The enemies of his friends are automatically his enemies as well, for his loyalty runs deep and strong. He currently is prone to hiding his heart, trying to protect it after all of the profound loss he has experienced. From losing his mother so young, to being betrayed by the love of his life, and then losing his father and pack… Keylo has built a nice, invisible, mental brick wall to protect himself against future heartache.
