Khalifa D'Angelo is a member of Salsola, currently living at the Salsolan Outpost in Portland.

He is the eldest son born to Sybil Moineau at the University Of New England after a short love affair with Ankh D'Aabt, shortly after the birth of his first litter. He left his family to travel and make a name for himself, and his path to 'Souls is paved by deceit, mischief, and a hunger for power and prestige. Quite the capable businessman, there are very few situations that Khalifa cannot talk his way out of.

After months of accumulating a meager fortune and an invaluable repertoire, he arrived to the Thistle Kingdom, eager to prove his worth to the crown — after quickly ascending the ranks and achieving the title of Arbiter, Khalifa returned his attentions to Portland, eager to further develop Salsola's foothold in the bustling portside town.

In accordance to Salsolan tradition, he often takes on the moniker of Gabriel the traveling tradesman outside of Salsolan territory, and he helps perpetuate the rumors and lies about the Kingdom so that outsiders keep away. Very rarely will an outsider or member of another pack be granted his true identity unless there is no explicit harm in doing so.

1.  Appearance


He is very Egyptian Hound in nature; his ears are upright, unlike his siblings', and he reeks of mixed heritage. His fur is relatively thick, perhaps slightly thinner than a wolf's coat, and his body is lean and streamlined.


  • Lupus: 33 in (84 cm) ↔ 90 lbs (41 kg)
    • Sometimes used.
  • Secui: 45 in (114 cm) ↔ 170 lbs (77 kg)
    • Never used.
  • Optime: 6 ft 8 in (80 in / 203 cm) ↔ 250 lbs (113 kg)
    • Commonly used. Tall and lean, Khali displays many of his doggish traits well in this form. His hair is short with a bit of a wave, cut fairly short to his ears.


  • Khalifa is highly humanized and often wears clothing as he believes it is a sign of his wealth and social standing.
  • Several tunics of varying colors: olive green, off-white, black, other natural colors
  • Nondescript pairs of trousers
  • Heavy winter coat made from fox furs
  • Light rider's cloak

2.  Personality


Khalifa D'Angelo is not a good man.

Silver-tongued and scheming, the dark son is almost always in it for the long haul; every action is carefully planned out and premeditated in accordance to the grand design. This isn't to say he isn't privy to thinking on the fly, however, and Khalifa has proven himself rather slippery in the company of strangers and peers alike. First and foremost, he is interested in furthering his own goals, and even though he might appear concerned with the plights of others, they are unimportant to him — indeed, his ascent in Salsola has less to do with furthering their ideals and more so with carving himself a little piece of paradise.

Eternally patient though he may seem, he is prone to losing his temper in the most bombastic of ways; words are his most powerful weapon, and anyone that seeks to cross him will not be spared the metaphorical blade. He finds it difficult to empathize with others outside of a superficial scale and generally views them as tools.

Though he gathers more and more small riches into his possession, it will never be enough. It is a lifelong struggle that, in time, will lead to his downfall, as much as he thinks himself as besting the odds.


  • Demeanor: Suave, confident, smooth-talking, charismatic
  • Speech: Smooth, baritone, somewhat monotonous but rises in tone when he's incensed; think Saitama.
  • Scent: Almost always disguised with bayberry or meadowsweet, which are both pretty potent smells.
  • Quirks, Gestures, Etc.: Tends to grin a lot when in conversation, which can look rather smug; he's just a pretty smug guy in general, actually, and he doesn't try to hide that.
  • General Posture and Body Language: Relaxed, subdued, level-headed; crosses his arms over his chest a lot and hums his (dis)approval.


  • Likes: Making deals, shaking hands and kissing babies; having others owe debts/favors to him
  • Dislikes: Stupid people that question his methods, any mention of his ears being too big, owing debts himself


  • Packs: Has a natural inclination to Salsola and will generally dislike anyone that his Kingdom deems unworthy.
  • Non-Luperci: Yeahhhhh... kinda cringe, bro. You're welcome, Tetrad.

Motivations and Fears

He is undoubtedly motivated by anything that furthers the ideals of Salsola; invariably, this includes procuring and shipping out goods for their betterment.

Like any good narcicisst, Khalifa does cling to his possessions, others' perceptions of himself, and his rank quite closely, and he would be devastated if somehow these things were stripped away from him. He is very careful with his actions and words as a result.


Heterosexual, mostly, and he separates sex from romance. In fact, sex is really just a tool to Khalifa, one he is not afraid to use when necessary, and he can distinguish actual feelings for someone from mere physical attraction. He can be romantic but is only interested in pursuing meaningful relationships with those that rival his intellect and skill. Hard-working, shrewd women are certain to catch his eye.


Yes pleaaaase, as long as he can maintain some semblance of control. He is pretty good at faking drunkenness and being stoned so he can stay on top of things, but that doesn't mean this boy does not know how to have a good time. ;)


No thanks. Atheistic and not looking to change. Religion is just a waste of time. He'll entertain the witchy, occult ways of his pack, but he definitely doesn't put any stock into them.

3.  Relationships

Notable Relations

  • Narcissa Greygrief is his dear, sweet sister. It takes a special kind of love to actually tolerate Cissa in her infinite unpleasantness, but Khali found her awfulness charming in its own roundabout way.
  • Symre Rask was an interesting case; she intrigued Khalifa's mind and they eventually cemented this mutual attraction at [M] Saturnalia. Khalifa had already been in Portland by the time Symre was exiled from the Kingdom for crimes against her own flesh and blood, though word of the tragedy did reach his ears; now, he pities her and wonders where she went so terribly wrong.
  • Aani Aston-D'Noires often came to him for advice as a newer member of the pack, and he utilized her skills as an Informatore to glean insider info about New Caledonia. With time, their relationship could have become something more.
  • Elphaba Revlis is a woman to be respected and feared. Khalifa is deadset on proving himself to her as a rightful heir to his father's legacy.
  • Sanguine Valentine was an on again, off again partner of his. They traveled abroad together a handful of times and Khalifa thinks him a capable businessman.
  • Oh, Tetrad. Poor, poor Tetrad. They signed a pact in blood with Khalifa — the gift of shifting in exchange for their servitude — and for a time after, they were Khalifa's servant. However, on the trip over to Portland, somehow Khalifa lost the luperci verto along the way...

4.  Minor NPCs



  • Gender: Female
  • Species: Horse
  • Date of Birth: ~ June 2016


  • Appearance: A dapple gray mare with a white mane and tail. There is feathering around her feet, and her eyes are dark and demure, almost sad-looking.
  • Personality: Aella is very skittish and nervous around new people. Khali constantly has to reassure her with nose taps or by stroking her ear (much to his annoyance). She is quiet and dutiful and not much else — with a more understanding rider, she might would be more sociable and not so weepy.
