Bayani Grimm is the son of Edith Grimm and Eli, born in January of 2015 as the only surviving pup of his litter. He was born in Swindon, a small Luperci-dominant merchant town located near Ottawa, Canada. He was raised there until an unfortunate series of events caused his father to grow abusive and his mother to eventually die of a lethal illness. Bayani's father framed his mother for being unfaithful and having an affair with a man (which consequentially caused the conception of his half-sister and only sibling, Primrose Grimm), and so true to Swindon's prudent culture, Bayani and his sister were unrightfully proclaimed bastard children of a whore and forced into exile.

Bayani took on the task of raising and protecting his half-sister as they traveled, solitary, through the wilds of Canada. Bayani developed an affinity for stealing and swindling in order to survive. Their ventures eventually led them to Nova Scotia, where Bayani encountered Claire de Valence ("Persephone"), and allured to a one-night stand, he was after offered entry into Salsola. In early July of 2016 Bayani and his sister Primrose joined Salsola's ranks, where they currently reside together.

When outside of Salsola, Bayani disguises his scent and goes by the pseudonym "Blue", and calls himself a lone traveler.

1.  Appearance

1.1  Basics

Essentials

  • Species: Bayani's lineage is primarily dog, and it is apparent in most every aspect of his appearance. Collie genes attribute to his fur and general body build, while more hardy bloodlines of wolf and husky provide him with an overall larger size and hybridized visage.
  • Fur: True to his collie heritage, Bayani's fur is very long, thick, and smooth and silky to the eye and touch. Fluffiness is most apparent throughout his chest, tail, and backswept portion of his limbs.
    • Optime Hair: Generally, Bayani prefers to keep his hairstyle short, allowing for more length along the top of his head to provide the look of a more subtle quiff.
  • Facial Features: Bayani's visage is generally strikingly severe and elegant, echoing his border collie-dominant heritage through taller, more pronounced ears, larger eyes, and a slightly more angular, longer muzzle.
  • Build and Size: Bayani's figure can best be described as tall, svelte, and agile. Above average only in height, his muscular frame is concentrated into that of a sprinter's. This figure tends to tip visually towards lank and willowy, with the aid of his windswept-appearing fur. Lupus build reference.
  • Humanization: Moderate to high. Bayani normally wears some form of clothing, and has an affinity for beautiful, hand-crafted items. Rarely shifting from Optime, his hands are a very valued element to his character.

    • Base color is True White.
  • Markings:

    • Tertiary color is Shark, in patches overlaying the secondary color.

1.2  Miscellaneous

Modifications

  • Scars: Has five long scars spanning from mid-forearm to wrist of his right hand. Acquired when a luperci caught him stealing jewels before fleeing Swindon.
  • Piercings: None.
  • Tattoos: None.

Adornments

Bayani enjoys wearing clothing, and often attempts to find the perfect medium between functionality, comfort, and style. His wardrobe is mainly that of neutral tones, as bright colors tend to be too attention-grabbing for his taste. Often, he will go shirtless, but he is almost always guaranteed to be wearing some form of pantwear as well as his mother's pendant.

Jewelry and Accessories

  • A blue kyanite crystal necklace on a short dark chain, often invisible in his thick chest-fur. The pendant was made by his mother.

Clothing

Forms


95 lbs (43 kg)
37 in (94 cm)

Lupus

Used very rarely, only in situations where the utmost speed and agility is required. Appears with the build of a large border collie, with thick, long fur and angular, elegant features. Thin hips with a concave abdomen lend the most effective running figure. Image reference.


160 lbs (73 kg)
48 in (121 cm)

Secui

Secui is virtually never used. Essentially appears as he does in Lupus, though more bulk and size has been added, and elegant collie features are less apparent. More ability for power.


235 lbs (107 kg)
6ft 11in (83 in / 210 cm)

Optime

Preferred. Bayani spends the majority of his time in this form. He is very tall and svelte, the little muscle mass he has concentrated in his legs and shoulders. His chest, tail, and backswept portions of his arms and legs provide the most obvious silky-thick collie fur. He moves with the grace and calculation of a dancer.

Interaction

  • Speech: Bayani's voice is naturally warm and as elegant as his body suggests. He speaks with an average "american" accent, and tends to generally avoid contractions and slang in his speech, to avoid appearing unintelligent in any way.
  • Scent: Mainly of forestry: pine, wood, and wildflowers. Also of his sister Primrose.
  • Quirks, Gestures, Etc.: Bayani is naturally charismatic and will use hand gestures as often as they help to accentuate his speech. His single most obvious habit is to roll his mother's pendant between his fingers or along its chain as he speaks.
  • General Posture and Body Language: As his height allows it, Bayani has a naturally tall, enveloping posture. He has been known to make other uncomfortable with his nonchalantly confident proximity, and has since learned to allow others their space. He is also very humanized in his center of balance.

2.  Personality

2.1  Ideals

Traits

  • Outlook: Generally pessimistic, though not fully opposed to optimism. He was raised to expect the worst out of others and situations.
  • Sociability: Bayani tends to be extroverted in speech; he is comfortable when talking with others, and is easily charismatic, though he tends to speak as precisely and with as little fluff as possible.
  • Expression: Bayani has grown up with a naturally confident, vaguely dominant posture. He imposes on others if necessary, though also knows when it is most strategic or intelligent to submit to his superiors.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
    • "Follows his whims"
    • "Values his own liberty but doesn't strive to protect other's freedom"
    • "He is an individualist first and last"

Spirituality

Describe your character's spirituality. What do they believe? Do they believe in (a) higher power(s)? Do they perform rituals? What do they believe after death? Do they have a creation myth? Maybe this section is long enough to require more space.

Biases

  • Packs: None at the moment.
  • Species: Bayani has no specific prejudices against species; he forms an opinion of each being according to their actions and personalities.
  • Non-Luperci: Bayani does not have any strong bias against non-luperci, but he cannot understand how they can be fully happy without hands or an Optime body. Would seek to convince Non-Luperci to change.
  • Gender: Generally has no bias; forms an opinion of each being according to their actions and personalities.
  • Color: No bias.
  • Sexuality: Bayani was raised in a very prudent society, and developed a distaste for homosexual relationships at a young age. He no longer has a strong prejudice against them, but he still finds them generally unusual and steers clear of them out of discomfort.
  • Age: Very young puppies with endless chatter tend to grate on Bayani's nerves, though beyond this general irritation for newborns, he has little bias.

Sexuality

Kinsey Scale 1: Predominantly heterosexual, only incidentally homosexual.

  • Raised in a prudent society where homosexuality was nonexistent and considered unnatural and odd, Bayani finds himself to be uncomfortable around those in homosexual relationships. While he has no strong predjudice against them, he never believes he could take part in one.
  • Bayani is nearly strictly heterosexual- it is feasible that he could develop feelings for another man, but it would be very difficult for him to overlook his upbringing and ultimately decide to be with said person.
  • Despite being rather young, Bayani has had experience with sex during his travels and is not opposed to one-night stands and short flings if a partner interests him so. However, he has varying degrees of commitment issues, and should he begin to develop actual feelings for another, he would most likely deny the fact and attempt to ignore it. A long-term relationship is most certainly not impossible, but it would be very difficult for a partner to break his exterior shell past physical desire.

Interests

  • Likes: A list of single or few-worded interests: e.g., horses, animal husbandry, leather-working, hunting, howling, running, jumping, playing, begetting a vast number of progeny, etc.
  • Dislikes: A list of single or few-worded dislikes
    • Maybe a BIG DISLIKE HERE

Substances

5.  History

Bayani's father became increasingly abusive and eventually left him and his mother. In the following months, Edith fell in love and had a litter with another man by the name of August. The litter consisted of one child, called Primrose. Bayani's father framed Edith for having an affair, consequentially causing the town's community to shun the small family. Edith eventually became fatally ill, and due to the community's unwillingness to treat an unfaithful woman, she died. Bayani and Primrose were considered bastard children and forced from the community with Prim's father, August, who died only weeks later from the same disease that had taken their mother.
