1.  Appearance

Dante is a large dog mix with heavy Doberman influence. He has a large frame which his skins clings tightly too. Dante is very slender, with several layers of muscle and little else. He looks large despite this due to a large rib cage and neck bones. His family made the choice to crop his ears and dock tail at a young age, and while his ear cropping was successful, he was in such pain from it that he squirmed when his tail was going to be docked, and as a result, got it docked extra-long. This leaves him a tail a quarter of its full length. Dante is covered in dark fur that is slightly longer than the average Doberman, giving his coat the texture of an Australian shepherd around his tail and legs, but short and bristly elsewhere. He has the noticeable chocolate markings on his muzzle, brow and chest of his breed. Dante’s face and snout are very long and slender, with a drawn out brow and serious amber eyes. He has noticeable scars along his back and the bridge of his nose, most of which were accidentally self-inflicted while practicing his weapon of choice. He chooses to wear a dark red cape in order to conceal these scars, which is stuffed under his leather paulder and red collar. He wears his weapons, chakram, along his left arm like armlets and bracelet, which also leaves the hair on that side worn a bit thin. His opitime hair is parted and combed almost extensively to his right. It is thick and coarse, with a jagged, sharp appearance.

secui form here

In this form, Dante’s muscular form is shown at its peak, with bristled and longer fur making him appear overall larger. His slight overbite is very noticeable in this form as two of his front canine teeth come out over his lips. This is the form Dante generally uses while trying to be intimidating, and serves its purpose excellently.(:tableend:)

2.  Personality

Dante is a serious and orderly dog, who views himself as a soldier. He is very stoic, stiff and awkward, trying too hard to remain professional no matter the situation. He tends to be a big worrywart, but never expresses this or any other emotion outwardly if possible. While he is an introvert, Dante does love the company of people. He has a very gregarious nature, but isn’t very friendly, especially with strangers. He does whatever he can to not offend or step on toes while not allowing him to be walked on and is genuinely a sensitive and passionate person behind an emotionless mask. He is emotionally as reserved and distant as he can possibly be and has a hard time showing any sort of affection or expressing himself. Dante will listen to orders to some degree, but has an independent nature and opinionated view on the world. Contrasting with a desire to listen to orders is sceptical and untrusting personality. Dante either throws all of his trust into someone or doesn’t trust them at all, and is the same way in regards to affection. Although he is beyond humble, Dante often comes off as arrogant. He is very much a logical planner who doesn’t act on instinct, emotion or impulse. Given the opportunity, Dante can assume an incredibly dominant and intimidating form. That said, Dante can be something of a risktaker and adores adventure and discovery.

4.2  NPCs

Pixels by Mandi!

Name Rosario

  • Species:Turkey Vulture
  • Age and DOB:Circa June 2014
  • Description: A little living cotton ball who Dante got in a trade from Ronit in exchange for furs. He plans to make the shy little bird into a messenger. Gender currently unknown. As of now, he/she is still flightless.
  • Personality: Shy and sweet, Rosario is shockingly affectionate considering the stereotypes of his/her species. He/She is very submissive at first, but quickly grows demanding and loving. Overall, a lazy and laid back sort of bird once he/she can get past any sort of fears of strangers. Blindly loyal to Dante, and views him as his/her parent.

4.3  Abilities

Strengths

  • Throwing weapons: Dante spent a good percent of his childhood practicing with long ranged weapons, especially chakram, and as such he has developed great accuracy and precision. He is able to use chakram and throwing knives without any practice prior to the attack, but can quickly pick up javelin and other spears, throwing axes and throwing clubs.
  • Fist Fighting: Dante’s expertise with this style of combat is far less than with his throwing weapons, but with size and strength alone, as well as a bit of practice, he can be a formidable opponent.
  • Blacksmithing: In order to be able to use chakram, which often aren't able to be retrieved or salvaged, Dante had to become good at blacksmithing. He can make chakram easily but struggles with much else besides basic tools.
  • Botany: Dante was taught basic botany as a child, and remembers a bit. He knows some basic herbal remedies and the uses of herbs, but can only point out a few herbs accurately.

Weaknesses

  • Anxiety: Despite his looks, Dante is incredibly empathetic and observant. This leads him to have anxiety about how others think of him, and he tends to be quiet and awkward.
  • Close combat: Dante can’t hold a sword or dagger to save his life, much less fight with one.
  • General social skills: Dante is distant, awkward and actually quite shy, which often comes off as arrogance.
  • Language Gap and goals: Dante’s mother tongue sometimes gets in the way of orders, but a good percent of the time, what gets in the way is his own ideas and plans.

4.4  Inventory

Trade

Dante isn't much of a trader. If he wants something, he keeps it, if he doesn't want it, he leaves it or gives it away. Not to say that Dante won’t trade, he simply has to have something important in mind. He is very good with his word and won’t break it, but he often has to rely on temporary debts to acquire something else in return.

  • Offering: Things your character can offer.
  • Accepting: A horse or any animal really.

Items

Weapons

  • Dante’s Chakram. He has seven or eight at all times on his arm, and should any break, he'll find scrap metal to make new ones. In general, he tries to make them last as long as possible
  • Dante’s Knives. He has throwing knives and one main knife for beheading prey.

Blacksmithing Stuff

  • Anvil

Unfortunately for Dante, he doesn’t own tongs. He usually uses scrap metal like massive chopsticks to grab molten metal. Hence why his feet are kind of burnt.

Necessities

  • It carries water
  • Meat!!

6.  History

Dante’s history goes back further than his birth. One of the earliest kings of the foreign Centri pack, whose territory lied near Genoa, Italy, was Enzo re de Centri. He was known to be brave, powerful and benevolent ruler, and his name was forever secured in the art, songs and hearts of his people. Even after the Centri family lost their title to the crown and became Dukes, the image of Enzo had become synonymous with the Centri family and nobility itself. A loose interpretation of his Doberman markings could even be noted on the Centri family crest. The Centri family took such pride in their black and tan pattern that they did whatever possible to keep the bloodline strong, usually inbreeding but supplementing the full Doberman lineage with Rottweilers, dachshunds, black and tan coonhounds and any other dogs with the same colouration. Dante’s father, Lucian Centri was raised in an incredibly stressful and strict household. His parents had impossible expectations of their son, which, coupled with the general lack of their presence, fostered a bitter and spiteful nature in the boy. When Lucian had just been apprenticed at the Luperci equivalent of age 16, he met Adelaide Donati, a young Rottweiler who had just barely been in heat for the first time. While she was a noble, she had been from a distant family. Young and naïve, Lucian claimed that he loved the girl who he had just met. His parents denied Lucian the right to marry until he was older and acted more mature. To spite his parents, Lucian took advantage of Adelaide’s first heat. Despite this, the two never poke again until Adelaide handed off newborn Dante to Lucian, who in turn, handed Dante off to Fabian, Dante’s paternal uncle. Dante’s existence was common knowledge to the entire family and pack, but none dare spoke a word of it, pretending that the boy had never been born. In order to keep the non-existent secret hidden and find a more suiting environment for his adopted son, Fabian left the Centri pack and sailed to Nova Scottia with a group of hunters from another Italian pack. Fabian was a high ranking general known for his strategic way of thinking. He had never wanted or planned for a wife or children, as both would distract him from his work and be potential Achilles heels. As much as Fabian did love young Dante, he never thought of him as a son. In fact, Dante would be scolding for calling him such and reminded of his real parents. Fabian specifically raised Dante like he would train a soldier; Punishments involved either a hand or a whip and rewards involved not getting punished. That wasn’t to say that Dante was abused, but he still didn’t have a nurturing environment. Dante grew up among the band of hunters, and was the only child in the entire band of bachelors. Whenever Fabian wasn’t around to scold them, the other men would pamper and spoil their collective child, but this was a rare occurrence. Dante was taught to obey orders without question and never talk back, a trait which he still has a hard time loosing. Fabian was proud of Dante, but never praised Dante while in his presence, and was a massive disciplinarian who nit-picked Dante’s flaws . Dante felt nothing but respect towards his adopted father despite this. At a young age, Dante had begun school and history. Fabian tutored the boy in all manner of history, mostly Italian, etiquette, math and science, but he had given up on trying to teach poor Dante rhetoric at a young age. Any time he wasn’t learning, Dante was kept busy. In fact, Fabian’s loved to say, “Il occupato l'uomo è turbato con ma un diavolo; il inattivo l'uomo dai mille,” translating roughly to, “The busy man is troubled by but one devil; the idle man by a thousand.” Dante spent the majority of his time practicing fighting with his weapons, and outside of that, would hunt and preform housekeeping duties for the small village. Dante was introduced to English by a former loner who joined the pack. He learned English at an age young enough to be able to pick it up fluently, but old enough that he spoke with a strong accent. This loner also brought out a more independent nature in Dante. As time progressed, Dante was given more and more tasks, which he roughly followed, but rarely paid attention to details. One day, when Dante had grown into a strong adult, a page arrived with a letter detailing the conditions of the Centri pack. Apparently, Dante’s grandfather had been killed, triggering a war with a neighbouring pack back in Italy. Fabian’s military expertise was needed for any chance of success, and he was set to return to his home country as soon as possible. Fabian wanted to ask Dante to come with him, as he loved Dante and was proud of the excellent soldier he had become. Dante wanted to help his home country and the only people who he had known. The past repeated itself; Fabian couldn’t bring himself to show affection in any manner, and Dante couldn’t act brash in front of a superior, so the subject never came up. Fabian sailed off with the entire village to Centri territory, giving only a pat on the back and a “good luck” to Dante. On his own for the first time, Dante struggled to find a pack to call home. He managed to survive easily on his own for a few weeks, but after a waterless week, found himself collapsed in Cour de Miracles territory.
