1.  Appearance

Isaac is part Italian wolf, part Australian Shepard. This makes his appearance mysterious at best. Whilst he holds onto a larger wolf heritage, his coat is colored in the unique, blue marble pattern of the Australian Shepard. Isaac isn't bulky and strong, his limbs are thin like branches. His hair is matted and untamed, though remains short cut. Isaac eyes are crystal blue, almost light grey. It would understandable to be caught back by the brightness of his iris color, frankly it was a first in the family, a rogue gene of the dog in him.

Isaac fur is short enough for the balmy Italian weather, and just long enough to stop the most nippy of cold northern weather. Isaac's normal outfit is usually a plain white shirt and vest. Both of which were made and colored with the family color of Royal blue. His wears trousers, rolled up short around his ankles. During a performance, Isaac wears a jacket, a very large and fitting jacket he found and adopted upon reaching Nova Scotia. It is littered in patches, to which Isaac used his incredibly novice knowledge of sowing to repair with different patches of whatever materials he could find.

Around his neck, Isaac wears a pair of stones, both marked with a strange symbol of unknown origin. A leaving present from his mother, and Isaac continues to use them as props for his shows.

Thicker coat, Isaac rarely visits this form, only when hunting prey as he doesn't use any humanized weapons.

Long and larger version of his lupus form, used just as rarely.

Average height for a male. Dog heritage makes him slightly smaller than most males of his age. Isaac has little upper body muscles, though legs are toned after years of life on the road.

1.3  Other

Modifications

  • Piercings: None.
  • Tattoos: None.
  • Scars: None.

Accessories

Isaac would own a hat if he could find one, anything to add to his performances. He enjoys wearing necklaces and pendants, as long as they have a story or purpose.

  • A necklace, given to him by his mother when he left. They are two larger rune stones with the carved words for Kenaz, (wisdom) and Gebo, (love). Isaac has no idea this rune stones show resemblance to that of the stone in the current 'Souls pack, Vinatta.

Clothes

Isaac, in Optime, is always seen in clothes. He wears dark pants, large and tucked up around the ankles. He wears a long sleeved white shirt, also rolled up at the sleeves and slightly browned by constant use. Over the shirt, Isaac was made a royal blue waist coat by a sower from the gypsy family he traveled with. In 'Souls, Isaac found a large jacket to wear during shows to hid things in the sleeves, he patched up the jacket with random and different colored fabrics.

2.  Personality

Isaac is an honest, willing man. He knows his place in the world, and hopes for others to respect it. As a traveling performer, he meets many new faces, not all as delightful as the last. Although his heritage is of rude, obnoxious Italian wolves, Isaac himself is a gentleman. He takes pride in his charisma, a skill enlightened from constant shows, the bad ones only teaching him what not to do.

He enjoys talking, and takes personal joy when others show an interest to his skills in show magic. Isaac doesn't care for fights, in all his training in Italy, brawls never arose and Isaac never thought to start one. Punching someone would probably be equivalent to being slapped with a wet fish. Isaac remains respectable, he knows from his skills how to get around someone. He's passive, luckily for those he meets, and will be very unlikely to ever use his skills for anything other than entertainment for others.

Isaac struggles with his English regularly, he's learning, but slowly. His face can sometimes look distorted or shriveled when some talks, but only because he is trying to concentrate on deciphering their words. If it helps him, he sometimes says words in Italian first before translating to English, and can go from the two languages rapidly. If ever provoked enough to get angry, (which is very rare in itself), Isaac will turn to spout out full Italian bad mouth.

Liking individuals more than just friends is a path Isaac has never really traveled down. He marks people as friends almost immediately after they talk, but doesn't really have any experience with love. He thought he liked a girl once, when the gypsy group took the road through a pack. But when the same feelings came but for a male of a different pack, Isaac got confused and assumed they were friendly feelings. So, theoretically, Isaac is Bi-sexual, and is very inexperienced with love but willing to try it if he ever meets the right person.

Isaac looks mostly for the hospitality of packs or individuals that would be happy to trade good in exchange for entertainment. Being a new comer to Nova Scotia, Isaac can only hope his talents won't be too badly shunned by the local packs, and perhaps one may find a liking to the wolfdog, enough to want him as a permanent entertainer.

5.  History

Isaac was, and always will be a free spirit. His life has never led him to an actual home. He was born to a gypsy family. His father, Antonio, was the gypsy leader, his mother was a traveler picked up by the actors and performers. They were always lively, growing amongst at most 12 different canines, Isaac was considered a son to all of them. Isaac was taught all his father thought he could contain. Even as a four-legged pup, his father had introduced the family line of show magic and ways to confuse and surprise an audience. Isaac learnt eagerly, being the only things he'd been exposed to, magic and entertainment was his life. His family taught him the usual wolf habits to survive, hunting and navigation. As a young adult, Isaac blended straight in as a fellow performer, and was gifted with a show outfit fitted to his proportions by the gypsy fabric worker.

There was honestly nothing wrong with Isaac's life, he considers himself lucky, compared to the tragic childhoods of some others he sees on his travels. In adolescence, and to his fathers predictions, Isaac craved a release, a freedom. He was granted it, with the share of what he'd earnt performing for them, the gypsy's gifted him with a way to the northern reaches of North America. It took a long time to get there, Isaac's third birthday went idly by. Taught some English, though not much, by the sailors that took him across the seas, Isaac set out to Nova Scotia. To explore the land and express his talents to the people and packs that resided their.

The origin of Isaac's last name is one he thought of on the way to Nova Scotia, 'La Grande' is Italian for 'the great'.
