Damnation Lykoi is one of three long lost children and a son of Basilio Lykoi and an unnamed mother. Basilio first left Inferni in early 2013 when Damnation's grandfather, Helotes Lykoi and himself along with his adoptive brother were taken hostage and enslaved by loners. After his father got free, Basilio ended up in Sonnerie where he had a one night stand with a coyote shortly after arriving and taking his place with the traveling band. Damnation's mother left the next day, never to be seen again but found out she was pregnant shortly after when the morning sickness and her body started showing signs of her pregnancy.

Fearing that she could not provide for her impending new born pups, his mother took refuge in a pack on the outskirts of what used to be Detroit, Michigan where she was taken in as one of their hunters. There, she gave birth to Damnation and his siblings. They grew up in relative ease with one another, their mother taking interest in the pack's leader shortly thereafter where she was mated and the pups were sort of pushed off to the side for the comforts of her new home. Damnation took an interest in fighting, unbeknownst to him, the same as his father, where he learned how to ride a horse and fight from it's back using a heavy lance and a net.

As a side project and nothing to do with his life as a warrior and a protector, he grew increasingly interested in beekeeping and learned from one of the local keepers how to keep his own hive and gain from the spoils of his, and the bee's, work. In 2015, Damnation thought he found the love of his life and that individual turned out to be a spy sent from another pack. Relatively high in the ranks, leadership learned of Damnation's disservice and barred him from the pack, running him from the pack's lands without hearing his side of the story which separated him from his mother and siblings.

With only the early stories of his father in his mind and his skills, Damnation spent most of his time traveling in the direction of the place his mother had been when she met his father. Unfortunately, upon arriving at this particular location, he found no evidence that the moving pack had been there for a few months. Regardless, he stayed there for a few months waiting to see if they would come back. When the seasons changed and they hadn't returned, he took his horse and made way for Nova Scotia and the home of Lykoi, Inferni.


Damnation is still in the process of being created and fleshed out for a potential character of Dread in the future. Plots are open to discussion as well as the creation of both the mother character and the two other siblings whose genders have been left open on the off chance someone would like a connection to the Lykoi or Basilio.

1.  Appearance

1.1  Basics

Essentials

  • Species: Damnation takes a lot after his father and grandfather when it comes to appearance. He looks the part of a coyote hybrid with large, radar like ears and an angular snout. However, if one pays closer attention to him, he is much larger than a coyote should be, smaller than what one would expect of a wolf and sort of in between the dog and coyote height ranges.
  • Fur: Damnation is very vane and narcissistic when it comes to his fur or hair and it is often combed and kept a reasonable length. Due to some of his doggish blood, his fur comes in longer than the typical coyote leaving him with prominent tufts of fur around his neck and in tail length. His fur is downy and soft to the touch but also coarse the deeper one sinks their fingers into it.
    • Optime Hair: Long and styled. As mentioned before, character is rather vane with his appearance and lets his hair grow ridiculously long when it comes to his mane which is reason enough for his neck's fur to be so long. He keeps it tied up on occasion with it parted at his forehead so he can see. He sometimes spikes it in which case he uses oils and different resources to make it stick where he wants it.
  • Facial Features: Large ears, angular face with smaller eyes. He has a slender, refined muzzle that tapers at an angle. Like his Lykoi family, he has a signature Lykoi blaze.
  • Build and Size: Tall, yet on the thinner athletic range. He is solid, built like his father when it comes to muscular features. He is height and weight proportionate with a long loping gait.
  • Humanization: Medium.

1.2  Forms

Lupus

Secui

  • Weight: 150 lbs (77.1 kg)
  • Height: 40 in (101.6 cm)
  • Nearly double the weight and far larger than his lupus, he looks the part of a halfling to the core, often choosing to keep his claws unsheathed for steadier footing since the difference between the two forms are so defined.
  • Mainly used for hunting or feral fighting, though he dislikes using this form on a regular basis.

Optime

  • Weight: 200 lbs (83.92 kg)
  • Height: 6ft 5in (69 in) (175.26 cm)

2.  Personality

Damnation, like his father, is a devoted young individual who prides himself on loyalty. Quite unlike his father or much of the Lykoi family, Damnation does not seem to have very many mental issues aside from the occasional depression. He is mischievous and charming to a fault and takes interest in most things to do with war but does not go out of his way to kill others if there is a way to avoid conflict. He has shown some anger issues to a fault like his father but nothing has made him crack quite the way his dad did during his life. Like his mother, he is cool tempered for the most part and opportunistic. He is not ambitious but will go above and beyond in his line of duty. He can be relatively naive when it comes to women and perhaps is a little misogynistic in his views of the opposite sex.

He asserts himself with a relative dominance but is also submissive to a fault when it comes to someone in power. He is very narcissistic and vane when it comes to his fur but will sideline that for a good battle or a roll in the mud when he's not too busy focusing on his work with beekeeping or with training his horse.

Biases

  • Non-Luperci: He doesn't judge one way or another but feels like non-luperci may be inferior in strength since most canines are now shifters in some way or another. They are outdated and out numbered and their kind are soon to be extinct.
  • Gender: Damnation is wary of women because of an incident with one of their sex. He loves to flirt with them, though, but also believes in some ways, that men should provide while women run the household and sire their pups.

3.  Relationships

3.1  Key Relations

  • Basilio Lykoi is Damnation's father and someone he has not had the chance to meet. He loves the stories he's heard from his mother about his father and his family but will probably end up regretting the memories of the stories told by his mother once he learns who his father truly was in the end.
  • Unnamed Mother is someone he has looked up to the better part of his life and she is the individual who fashioned him to be who he is today. While he loves his mother dearly, she also pushed him to the side in exchange for power in the pack they settled in and for love but he's never held that against her despite the way he had to grow up early.

4.  Interaction

General

  • Speech: Damnation is very soft spoken with a somewhat grating voice. He would be a good singer if he ever set his mind to it. His voice does come with a bit of an accent though it isn't overpowering.
  • Scent: Leather, honey, blood, mud, and flowery oils.
  • Quirks, Gestures, Etc.: Moderately humanized gestures and hand movements.
  • General Posture and Body Language: Very straight, trained posture. Never slouching or relaxed unless in private company. His body language tends to come off as someone with a dominant personality until he is in the presence of someone with a higher rank than his own or with someone he likes more than just a friend.

Adornments

  • Leather and fur braces on both his wrists and shoulder. Furs on his shoulder is from a bear. The leather and fur on either of his wrists are from rabbits and squirrels.
  • A spiked collar made of dyed black leather and bone spikes. It ties at the back with leather cording and his often hidden from behind by his long hair.
  • A spiked bracelet made of dyed black leather and bone spikes. Like his collar, it ties at the back with leather cording.
  • A pair of luperci made hemp pants stained with ink dye made from the ashes of a fire and the juice of a blackberry.
  • A red sash made of wool that is used as a mix between a belt and loin cloth that covers his front.
  • A pair of leather shin braces that are tied around the back with leather cording. Often worn over his pants to protect from blades when he's fighting on the back of his warhorse.

5.  Abilities

Strengths

  • Hunting: Damnation was trained at an early age to capture and kill for his meals. As of now, he is a talented tracker and hunter who is able to do so on the back of his horse
  • Horse Training: He learned how to train horses from the pack leader who was sleeping with his mom. Known for his dabbling in horse training, the leader saw fit to give the most challenging of his horses to Damnation who trained it to be the fine beast it is today. He is very proficient in giving non-verbal cues and in breaking horses as well.
  • Fighting: Damnation is very good at fighting from horse back with a long, heavy lance and with using a net. He practiced for years upon first shifting and developed his own style of fighting that suited him. He is almost as talented on foot with the heavy lance but prefers to discard the net when he's fighting blade to blade off horse-back as the net can get in the way.
  • Bee Keeping: As a side project, Damnation started tackling bee-keeping as a secondary hobby away from his fighting and hunting. He learned from a local beekeeper who gave him a hive of his own that he has since abandoned. It would take a lot of time to start a new hive but he could do it given the proper time and location/opportunity.
  • Candle and wax sculptures: While his candle making and wax sculptures are not overly pretty, they do smell good from his use of oils and making of wicks so he often uses the wax and honey secured from his bees in this particular venture to earn coin or barter with passersby.

Weaknesses

  • Fighting: One of his weaknesses is that he underestimates women when it comes to fighting or any other skill that isn't pertinent in a home setting. He miscalculates the force he needs when going toe to toe with them and is easily drawn into situations he doesn't like. Another weakness that he's tried to cover up is that he has a hard time protecting his lower legs on horseback than he would in a typical combat situation.
  • Bee Keeping: Most hives take a while to form. Building one would require him to find another queen chamber in another hive to start his own. As far as weaknesses go, he doesn't always use smoke the way he should when handling bees which leads to painful bee stings.
  • Candle and Wax Sculpting: He is very much a novice when it comes to sculpting and making candles. While they smell good, most could look better with coloring and dyes. Instead, they're usually clumps. Visualize the Shrek candle made of his earwax.
  • Hunting: He has a habit of wanting to hunt by himself. Because of that, large game such as moose or bear or larger animals are generally off limits due to his inability to work with others when meat is the goal.
