In late January 2018 whilst looking for Myrkr he takes shelter from a storm with Dystopia Massacre. The encounter ends violently when her father [M] returns, threatens him and binds him. Sebastien wakes up to find himself in a blood-soaked den where he is physically and emotionally [M] tormented for several weeks.
He escaped a month later and tried to piece his life back together. In a fit of desperation, he seeks out old friends but becomes trapped.
Helena Troy Lykoi discovers him, but his freedom comes at a price. In early June, he returns to Salsola to pay his debt, becoming her servant in the process.
Summoned by Coaxoch in the middle of the night, the two meet with Elphaba to negotiate for his freedom. With their request granted, he earns the rank of Serf and looks ahead to proving himself to be a valuable asset to his pack.
Salsola members may reference seeing Sebastien doing the following:
Running errands for members of the Ulrich-Lykoi clan
Tending to his ducks or the pack's livestock
Drawing, painting with inks etc
Tending to the garden, collecting flowers, plants and herbs etc
Sebastien strongly resembles a sighthound mix, with a deep chest and lean, compact build. As such, he boasts a supple figure in all forms; suited for agility and running. Whilst the groomed, medium-length coat of his mixed heritage aids him in warmer seasons, the male struggles to retain warmth in winter without the addition of layers of clothing.
Bastien often wears a smile on his face, and his eyes seem to dance with a mischievous glint to their depths. Due to his bobbed-tail, the male expresses himself physically with hand gestures and facial cues to overcome this boundary.
His outward appearance is soft, with eyes often set into the far distance or with a mischievous glint to their depths which is at odds with the way he styles himself. Piercings adorn both ears and his left brow, chains dangle from his neck, wrists and hips as he moves, leather gathers at his wrists and tattoos adorn his body. Bastien inherited Garreth's messy, windswept hair which he has a frequency to style into thick, voluminous spikes.
Multiple bites, claws and knife wounds caused by Dystopia, including;
Slices across the bridge of his nose and forehead
Strange symbols crudely carved by a knife along his inner thighs, legs and shoulders.
Both ears have been pierced multiple times.
Single brow stud
Scallop shell on collarbone
Nautical star on inner left wrist
Hand of Eris on the back of his palm
Jewelry: Studded leather, stones and charms decorate his wrists and hoops suspend from his ears. Chains dangle from one hip.
Gear: A lover bright colours and patterns. In Winter, he tends to wear thicker layers to ward off the elements.
Notable items: A red-and-black plaid scarf is almost always found on his person.
FUZZY WUZZY BROWN (#C45655)
BROWN DERBY (#492615)
CAVERN PINK (#DEC0B0)
ROSE FOG (#E7BCB4)
Fur: Primarily Porche
Markings: Stripes of Fuzzy Wuzzy Brown, Nutmeg and Kabul form a brindle pattern across his body.
Mask of Carrera, covers his fore-quarters and stops halfway along his stomach. Also has stockings.
Freckles of Cavern Pink dot his face and fore-limbs.
Finding the brother he only knows of from his mother's stories
Non-Luperci: Loves his adopted brother, Sabre, who happens to be Non-Luperci. Does not understand the prejudice against those who are different and is likely to disagree with those who hold bigotry towards them.
Gender: Thinks both genders have something unique to bring to the world. Dominant women, however, are intimidating.
Colour: Females with red eyes and dark pelts unsettle him and remind him of Dystopia.
Sexuality: Sees value in all forms of expression, so long as it is safe and consensual.
Age: Both young and old should be valued. Children can learn much from the wisdom of their elders, and vice versa.
Bun is a romantic with a big heart, which means he is likely to form deep attachments to others throughout his life. He tends to use pet names when speaking to someone he likes, such as 'honey', 'sweetie', 'darling' etc.
Despite his apparent openness for flirtatious words and touch, any sign of reciprocation would likely leave him self-conscious.
He tries to hide his attraction to another and is unlikely to initiate a relationship due to nervousness.
He was introduced to alcohol at an early age, as something to be shared and enjoyed with a family meal. As an adult, he sometimes uses it as part of rituals.
Uses sedatives occasionally - particularly when stressed.
Rarely uses opiates nowadays, used to induce visions.
Polytheistic, with animist beliefs
His theology is a potpourri of the different faiths he has encountered through his life.
Brought up on Garreth's stories and superstitious beliefs and holds them dear.
Believes that every living thing has a 'spirit' and is deserving of respect.
These have been mixed with his former mentor's blend of New Orleans Voodoo.
He addresses his prayers to multiple Gods and Goddesses, who go by many names and forms.

Garreth Stone is his Dada, a story-teller and an inspirational figure. Many of Bun's beliefs can be attributed to his father who maintained some superstitions from his piratical days. Garreth sheltered his sons from the storms that life sometimes brings, he also had a playful side.
Madeline Dubois is his Ma, a strong-willed woman who tried to hide her sadness behind a thin smile. Whilst very loving towards her children, certain topics would see her become distant; particularly when she spoke of her homeland or the children she bore there.
Coaxoch is his childhood friend and Till's son. A mysterious boy that he eagerly bonded with, the two used to pretend to be brothers and were the heroes of their imaginary world. They drifted apart in their adolescence, and Bun isn't sure why. Finally reunited, he is relieved that their bond remains stronger than ever although he wishes he could change the way he feels for the other. To prevent himself from ruining what they have, he hides his true feelings.
Eden de le Ulrich and Evelyn de le Ulrich are his beloved stars. Though neither shares his blood he thinks of himself as their father/uncle figure and tries his best to support them. Where Coaxoch is stern with the children, he tends to be more forgiving and playful.
Till Van Ulrich Lykoi he met through Garreth's trade arrangements. The man visited often and spoiled him with affection and treats as a child. He enjoyed the Lykoi's stories about the world beyond his home; he made Till promise to tell him a new story when they next saw each other. Once reunited though, he can't help but realise the Ulrich patriarch is a bit different than the man he knew. Till had always had his quirks, but in the suspicious world of Salsola, Bastien worries for the man and his safety.
Dystopia Massacre held him captive and abused him both verbally and physically. Bastien feels a complex range of emotions toward the woman, largely fear and confusion. Despite escaping from her, he finds that he is haunted by her in his every-day life.
Helena Troy Lykoi saved his life, only to claim his freedom. The woman is not a cruel mistress to him, quite the opposite. He has learned many useful skills serving beneath her, though he remains anxious in her presence.
Myrkr Stormbringer once lovers in happier times, before the meteor impact destroyed Freetown and their relationship. Sebastien struggled to care for Myrkr in the aftermath, who was dealing with volatile mood swings and panic attacks. Unable to process his own emotions after the death of his mentor, he reluctantly broke off their romance. Years later they would meet again, only for the encounter to end disastrously when neither party could reach an amicable conclusion. The Stormbringer left Krokar soon after, and Bun hasn't seen him since.

Following or close-by to Sebastien
Whilst sheltering in Marrgerd from the blizzards of Winter 2019, she tried to provide warmth for her mate, Myrkr, until his death.
The only son of a former pirate and a runaway from courtly trappings, he was raised in the remnants of a farm in The Blacklands. He was an energetic and sweet pup who lived an average life. He made strong bonds with his adoptive non-Luperci sibling, Sabre, as well as a kindly trader and his mysterious son. When he was old enough to take care of himself, and with his parent’s encouragement, he left for Freetown.
Along the way, he encounters Juniper Peace and travels with them for several months. Bastien is greatly inspired by its non-judgemental and care-free way of life and develops various interests and expertise. The man gained an appreciation for the pack's Buddhist influences, ability to commune with creatures and varied spirituality.
Upon reaching Portland, he apprenticed underneath a trader called Mama Ava and offered his creative services as an artist of the flesh; tattooing, piercing, dyeing, etc. Alongside the older woman, he picked up valuable skills in trade and multiple methods of body modification as well as a greater appreciation of Ava’s Voodoo beliefs.
During this time of personal growth, Bastien encountered a lost soul who he develops feelings for. Their relationship is short-lived however after his partner is left shaken in the aftermath of the Red Star's fall. He struggled with his grief at losing his beloved mentor and his attempts at consoling his mate and reluctantly breaks things off.
