Once part of Malus' gang of loners, Briston had quickly become property of Anathema and Evangeline Lykoi. His group once called The Trenches their home before Anathema chased them out and claimed the lands for themselves. After continuously taunting the borders of the new pack, Briston and his fellow group members were eventually captured and forced to fight for their lives in Anathema's amphitheater for entertainment.

At the end of Briston's fight with Kohaku Amarok, he was claimed by Evangeline and made her personal slave, which despite his first thoughts, didn't turn out to be so bad. Briston and Evangeline grew close over the next few months, and at the end of the year at one of the pack's Halloween celebrations, Briston asked for his freedom.

Since then, Briston and Evangeline have developed a strong friendship and possibly a one-sided romance. Briston has become very protective over his charge with the sole intent to keep her safe, while also to keep a watchful eye on her and spend as much time with her as possible. Unbeknownst to her, he also sticks around to make sure his comrades are safe and alive. Though, in many of their eyes, Briston's freedom and initiation into the pack did not reflect well.

1.  Appearance

1.1  Basics

Essentials

  • Species: Briston takes after his larger, Gray Wolf heritage than his coyote heritage. His general appearance doesn't give off that he's much of coyote at all.
  • Fur: Medium-length fur, which is slightly fluffier around his torso and neck than the rest of his body
    • Optime Hair: Briston has long, wavy locks that hang to almost his waist, snaking over his shoulders. He usually keeps it brushed and neat - sometimes pulling it back into a braid or a ponytail - when his career permits it. Example Pic
  • Facial Features: Briston has a wide head, and typical Wolf facial features: large expressive eyes, a thick snout, and large, rounded ears.
  • Build and Size: Lean and muscular, and stands at around average height
  • Humanization: Low — Aside from weapons and a few skills he has learned over the years, Briston still lives a very feral life. His thoughts tend to be a little more on the feral side, choosing to solve problems with natural approaches. Briston is also not very interested in clothing and accessories.

3.2  Relations

Key Relations

  • Evangeline Lykoi is Briston's self-proclaimed charge. He promised her he'd protect her with his life once he was granted his freedom. Evangeline and Briston have a dynamic relationship and they both seem to care for each other. However, Briston's affection for her seems to be very one-sided, and much to her dismay, he follows her around like a puppy at her heels.
  • Szenne is one of his comrades from Malus' gang. He thinks Szenne is highly judgmental without looking into all of the facts. Regardless, he respects her like he respects all of his comrades.
  • Malus Reinhart is his former gang leader, captured alongside him when Anathema decided to take action. Even though Malus was freed and left the pack, Briston still respects him, though it's waning due to his opinion of Malus' choices.
  • Ronan is also one of Briston's comrades from Malus' gang. Briston respects Ronan for his skills and cleverness. He also resents him for having many more useful skills than he does.
  • Ocke is one of Briston's comrades from Malus' gang. Briston respects Ocke for his skills and strength. Briston and Ocke seem to have been the closest out of the whole gang as they sometimes hunted and drank together.
