By Mel!

Basilaris Eternity is a wolf-heavy hybrid and member of Salsola, where he was born. He holds the elite rank of Paladin, functioning as a warrior for his pack. With his mate Bane D'Angelo, he is father to four children; Misery, Grievous, Mandrake, and Scourge.

Born to former Salsola leader Eris Eternity and Larkspur D'Angelo, Basilaris was their last child. His father was killed during the Boreas Conflict, during an incident in which Basilaris was kidnapped. He was turned over to a trader who transported him overseas, where he was sold into slavery. He was raised and trained to act as a living weapon for a group of wolves in Dzhendema. Eventually, Basilaris turned on his captors and escaped, traveling for weeks before finding his way back to Amsterdam. It was here he met Stannis de le Poer, who befriended him despite their language barrier. They later encountered Bastion Hallow and his mate Janos, who recognized Basilaris and urged him to return home. The four men arrived in Salsola in November of 2013.

A recovering addict, Basilaris was helped through this process by Stannis and his sister, Boss Salvia Eternity, who afforded him time and resources to begin the process of recovery. Basilaris adjusted to life in Salsola with relative ease and began to climb in the ranks. His duties included acting as a guardian for his sister's children, and in particular Osrath, to whom he is closest. He previously acted as Morgana Revlis' sponsor at the request of her uncle, and the two maintain a good relationship. He currently sponsors Nickodemus Sparhawk.

Living a sober, dutiful and dedicated life to his pack and his family, Basilaris continues to defend his homeland while still focusing on raising his children.

1.  Appearance

1.1  Basics

Essentials

It’s apparent on first glance that Basilaris isn’t simply large—he’s massive. One would never mistake Basilaris for anything but a wolf (though a keen eye would recognize hybridization in his ears and facial structure). He is long-legged and bulky, with a broad chest and shoulders. This size is reflected throughout the rest of his body. Basilaris has central heterochromia and is an extreme example of piebaldism, though his skin and tongue give this mutation away almost as clearly as his eyes.

Humanization

  • Low - rarely found in Optime form.
    • Jewelry: Wooden + crystal sun necklace.
    • Gear: --
    • Weapons: --

Modifications

  • Scars
    • Four on face, running diagonally across the right side of his muzzle.
    • Multiple whip marks scour his back, though are largely hidden by this longer fur.

Interaction

  • Scent: Salsola, marsh, pine, mud, herbs, horses, his children. It is not uncommon to catch traces of Bane on him as well. When Basilaris disguises his scent he uses salt-water and woodsmoke.
  • Speech: Though Basilaris spoke English fluently when he was a boy, he did not use it for an equally long period of time. When he does speak English his voice has an notable accent.
  • Quirks, Gestures, Etc.: Basilaris suffers from intention tremors in his left hand, and it often shakes.
  • General Posture and Body Language: Subdued, almost surprisingly passive. This becomes a little more defensive when with other Salsola members, especially. He would never look less than threatening when outside of Salsola's borders.
