Adrien Lesov is a Tundra Wolf male born in Russia in 2013. He was born to Mikael Lesov and Willow, who died due to childbirth complications. He was treated harshly by his father and older brother for being both the runt of the litter and a black sheep within his family. Adrien had a natural curiosity towards human things, which put him at odds with his traditional family.

In late-2014, he was cast out from his home and left to wander through Eastern Europe. His lost, nomadic life was cut short by the timely arrival of River, whom the dark grey wolf was immediately attracted to. They quickly became friends, and later stowed away on a ship headed for New England. Once there, he professed his love to River and they became mates in 2015. They are expected to travel to 'Souls soon.

    • Optime: Adrien's Optime form is lanky and thin, yet he still has some muscle on his body.

Adornments

Most of what Adrien wears is loose-fitting and old from years of wear. Being a Tundra Wolf, he doesn't need very thick clothing for the winter like others. His red scarf is one he traded for, and remains his prominent accessory since. His necklace is one that River gave him one year, and his bracelet is something he made himself and is crude-looking compared to other things he wears.

  • Necklace with gem
  • Red scarf

Clothing

  • Pale-colored tunic
  • Brown pants (always worn)
  • Black vest with gold-colored buttons

Forms


107 lbs (48.5 kg)
37 in (94 cm)

Lupus

In his most feral form, Adrien represents the natural wolf-nature within him, despite how much he covers it up while in his more human form. His body is powerful yet acrobatic, providing him with both the strength and the speed to take down prey. His legs are long and his dark grey fur is noticeably thick.


153 lbs (69.4 kg)
48 in (122 cm)

Secui

Adrien's second-most form, his Secui form lacks the distinctive slim, lithe appearance of the other two. Instead, he gains muscle and even thicker fur, especially around his neck, and looks similar to a small, dark grey bear. He prefers this form for hunting and tasks that require a more feral approach to them, favoring the Secui's speed strength, and claws.


237 lbs (107.5 kg)
7ft 0in (84 in / 213.36 cm)

Optime (Preferred)

Adrien's Optime form is the perfect blend of feral and humanized, with a lean, streamlines appearance with hidden muscle underneath his thick dark grey fur. He prefers to do most of his activities in this form, and favors the usage of his hands.

Interaction

  • Speech: Adrien has a thick Russian accent and is normally very polite and formal.
  • Scent: Lesov, berries, herbs, assorted plants and dyes
  • Quirks, Gestures, Etc.: Regularly switches between being completely stoic and not saying a word and sporadic bursts of emotion.
  • General Posture and Body Language: Like a stone statue. Very upright, possibly dominant, stature, with his chest slightly out and a stoic expression on his face.

2.  Personality

Misunderstood Loner With a Heart of Gold, Reclusive Artist, Knight in Shining Armor, Anti-Hero

Adrien is a stoic loner, hailing from his past with his family. He is not one to speak about just anything, but picks his conversations wisely. He is fiercely protective, especially of River, but sometimes a little too protective. He keeps his distance from strangers, and prefers to be a wallflower at a gathering than the life of the party. He takes his craft very seriously, and strives to always do his best in everything he does.

Adrien has somewhat conflicting morals, having a "the end justifies the means" mentality. He would do questioning actions if it was for the greater good, such as stealing from the rich to give to the poor, but wouldn't do devious acts for no apparent reason. He has no qualms about spying or being secretive either and is a pathological liar (although River has a way of gleaning the truth from him).

Despite his first impressions, however, once you get Adrien to open up and reveal his more relaxed and laid-back side, he can be quite fun to hang around.

2.1  Ideals

Traits

Calm, controlled, artistic, solemn

  • Outlook: Mostly realistic, with a hint of pessemistic
  • Sociability: Introverted
  • Expression: Stoic, serious, and generally emotionless
  • Alignment: Lawful Good

Motivations

  • River- Protecting River is a big motivator for Adrien, as he usually takes it upon himself to make sure his mate is safe and blames himself when she's hurt.
  • Exploration- Both the literal and metaphorical meaning. Adrien wants nothing more than to find his place in the world, and will scour the globe for that place. He has a natural wanderlust and curiosity that takes him places he's never thought of before.

Fears

  • Loss: Adrien deeply fears losing anyone close to him, including his mate.
  • Inferiority: As he comes from a proud family, Adrien takes immense pride in his work, whether he shows it outwardly or not. He can also be a perfectionist, and has moments of self-hatred when he doesn't live up to his perceived standards.

Biases

  • Packs: Looks down on secretive and criminal pakcs like Salsola and Anathema
  • Species: No bias against a particular species.
  • Non-Luperci: Thinks Luperci are higher in the "natural order" than non-Luperci.
  • Gender: Liked the traditional roles of men and women, until River came along!
  • Color: No bias.
  • Sexuality: Adrien views heterosexual relationships as the right way, but he holds no ill feelings towards those who choose the other lifestyle. He treats other women with respect and chivalry, although to a stranger it may seem like he's flirting.
  • Age: Adrien respects elder Luperci, but has no decision for or against children. He simply does not care.

Sexuality

Exclusively Heterosexual: Adrien is happily married to River, and will politely yet firmly tell anyone who makes advances towards him to back down. Love is something Adrien takes very seriously, and personally doesn't understand why some males decide to have many different mates.

Interests

  • Likes: River, painting, hunting, exploring, experimenting with dyes and paints
  • Dislikes: Fighting, losing River, his father, his family

Substances

Adrien has tried drinking before, and has gotten drunk once, in Russia. Adrien would not like to repeat the experience, as he had broken many pieces of furniture and nearly got into a fight. He can be occasionally seen with a cigarette in his jaws when not working.

Spirituality

Not openly spiritual, but Adrien does believe in a higher power and often wonders about it during his down time.

3.  Relationships

* Does not know this person by name.

3.1  Family: Lesov

  • Mother: Willow
  • Father: Mikael Lesov
  • Siblings: Isaac Lesov, Cecilia Lesov
  • Half-Siblings: None
  • Children: Misti Lesov (in the future)
  • Cousin: Skye Lesov
  • Extended: None

3.2  Relations

Key Relations

  • River Lesov: Adrien's one true love, River has been with him since his lowest point, and he couldn't imagine a life without her by his side. River makes up Adrien's other half. He wouldn't be complete without her.
  • Sebastian "Seb" Bryant: Possibly the only friend the dark grey wolf had while in Russia. Seb and Adrien were the two troublemakers of the forest where they lived. The two have lost contact, but Adrien still holds out hope that he'll see his childhood friend soon.

Positive Relations

  • Ceclilia Lesov: Adrien has had a good relationship with his sister, partly because she was the only person whom he felt really understood the troubles he faced as a child.

Neutral / Negative

  • Mikael Lesov: Adrien's father is currenly the only person Adrien truly believes he hates, for Mikael saw him only as an embarrassment both to him and his family name.
  • Isaac Lesov: Adrien's brother is also the reason for much of his hate towards his family, as Adrien once described Isaac as "a good-for-nothing show-off who only feels good when others feel terrible." Isaac loved teasing his little brother for being the runt of the litter and for his curiosity when it came to human things.

Minor Relations

  • Sex: None
  • Friendly: None
  • Enemies: Most of his family
  • Murders: None

4.  Skills and Inventory

4.1  Abilities

Combat

  • Education and Learning: It's tradition for Lesov members to learn a form of combat when they reach shifting age.
  • Swordsmanship (Master): Although he does not outwardly admit it, Adrien is indeed very skilled with a sword in his hand. Learning the ways from his father, Adrien at least set out to be the best swordsman in his family, if it was to be the one thing that made him not a complete failure in his father's eyes.
  • Feral Fighting (Journeyman): Although not as skilled in feral fighting as swordsmanship, Adrien is nonetheless talented fighting tooth and claw.
  • Unarmed Fighting: Adrien's weakest point is unarmed combat. He has not received any formal training and would mostly be fighting blind. Disarm him, and you have an easy target.

Artisan Crafts

  • Education and Learning: Completely self-taught, and in secret, as his family didn't approve of him learning to be more "humanized."
  • Painting (Master): A side hobby-turned passion, Adrien has spent considerable time learning various techniques of painting. He also knows how to make many different colored dyes and paints as a result.
  • Woodcarving (Apprentice): Adrien has only recently gotten into the art of woodcarving, as he figured it out while bored one day and began to carve a picture out onto a piece of bark with his claw.
  • Reading (Journeyman): Adrien has some practice reading human writing and has taught River how to as well.
  • Writing (Journeyman): Adrien also has some practice in writing, although his large hands make this a hard skill for him.
  • Size: Adrien is a considerably large Luperci, and his hands are also bigger and less dexterous than others. He can't hold a paintbrush as well, and mostly resorts to using his fingers. This also means that he cannot add fine details to his artwork, so most of it comes out looking blurry and messy.

4.2  Inventory

Trade

Adrien will trade many different items from his travels in exchange for art and combat supplies.

  • Offering: Pelts, antlers, bones, artwork, carvings, metal
  • Accepting: paints, dyes, berries, herbs, tools

5.  History

5.1  Achievements

Catacombs

go get yo' catacombs template, son

Adrien was born to Willow, a Tundra Wolf loner who had died due to complications during childbirth, and Mikael Lesov, a well-renowned name within his family. Adrien was the second-born son and last-born pup, and spent his early life in his aunt and uncle's farmhouse, where the pups were nursed until they were older. He lived in his brother, Isaac's, shadow, and the older male did nothing but rub it in his face that he was the heir to the family and not Adrien.

One day, while out for hunting practice, the young Tundra Wolf male had mistakenly stumbled upon the ruins of St. Petersburg, which began his fascination with the human world. He began ducking out of the house in the night, with some help from Cecelia, and visiting the place and learning about its past occupants. He taught himself many skills during this time, including reading, writing, and painting.

However, his interest in human inventions put him against his more feral and traditional family. This ultimately came to light when Isaac found Adrien sneaking out one night with artist's supplies. The older sibling wasted no time in alerting their father, who promptly broke Adrien's supplies and cast him out of the house, claiming he was too weak to survive.

Adrien did survive, mainly out of spite, and was left wandering the Russian countryside for some time before he met River. At first it was just an accidental meeting, the two of them tracking the same reindeer herd, and the grey male quickly having an attraction to the young female. They began to meet more frequently, and a beautiful friendship was born. Adrien secretly carried his attraction for River along as the two grew ever closer, and one day hitched a ride to New England to start a new life.

Adrien then confessed his love for the blue-grey wolf, which she returned and the two became mates in late-2015. They then began an adventure northwards and are expected to travel to the 'Souls region soon.
