1.  Appearance

1.1  Basics

Essentials

  • Species: An interesting cross of Red Wolf, Plains Coyote and Belgian Shepherd Dog, Jackal visibly looks more like his namesake, except bigger and off-marked.
  • Fur: Thick, coarse and in some areas, plush; Jack's pelt is of a medium density and lies fairly flat across his body.
    • Optime Hair: Short enough to blend into the rest of his fur, it appears that he lacks any particular hair style.
  • Facial Features: His nose is crooked, but the rest of his face is angular and streamlined, with handsome features.
  • Build and Size: Tall and leggy with a narrow torso and wide shoulders. He has surprisingly dainty paws for his height.
    • Lupus: On all fours, he looks even more like a jackal might, with a barrel chest and high-set ears, dainty paws and a bounce in his step as he walks.
    • Optime: Lean and narrow, with a broad chest and sharp angles, defined edges, his fur covering just little enough to reveal a tone, athletic build underneath.
  • Humanization: Almost never nude, Jack prefers blue jeans, leather jackets and v-neck t-shirts or muscle tanks; when fully dressed, he looks more at home as a grease monkey than a salesman. He doesn't often wear much for accessories otherwise. He picks clothing based on carrying capacity and comfort over style, however, so this does vary greatly.

Coloration

  • Fur:
    • Tawny coat, which becomes desaturated in Winter.
    • Marked with paler off-white underneath and dark near-black ashy brown on top.
  • Markings:
    • Sable cover with points.
    • Pangare undersides with tips on the toes and tail.
  • Eyes: Deep blue eyes.
  • Optime Hair: His hair blends into his fur and takes on the same dark color as his sable and points.
    • Nose and Paw Pads: What's supposed to be revealed is dark flesh, though scars and under his fur tend to be pale fleshy pink.

1.2  Miscellaneous

Modifications

  • Scars: --
    • An ugly scar runs up his left calf and ankle. It's not entirely clear where this scar came from. Jack admits he doesn't remember now.
    • His left ear also bears a notch out of it. This was a piercing once. It got torn out in a drunken brawl sometime in 2012, or so he claims.
  • Piercings: None since his ear.
  • Tattoos: None so far.

43 in (109 cm)

Secui

Used only for battle, Jack doesn't bother with weaponry or tools in a fight. Except when he's drinking to can't focus to shift, Jack relies heavily on this form for combat and is exceptionally skilled in using its anatomy to take out his opponent with brute force and quick blows.

Optime (Preferred)

His primary form, he stands upright and proper, and spends his every other waking hour on two legs.

Interaction

2.  Personality

Quiet and typically cynical, Jack's a man of few but biting words. Though intelligent, his thoughts suffer from years of alcoholism and sleepless nights. He is clever and charismatic at his best, but a drunken asshole at his worst. His loyalty to something or someone he holds dear knows no bounds, but he's just as quick to change his mind about liking something. He's a deviant and a flirt, but before any of this, he's also a merchant- bragging that he could sell water to a fish if he so pleased; and it's not far from the truth, even if most of his sales tactics involves lies and wordplay. It works perfectly, every time! Trust him!

In better health, without his smoking and drinking (and at times gambling) problems, Jack's still far from perfect. He's selfish, greedy and self-serving at his core. Though he can care, and does know empathy and sympathy, it's not his first nature. Naturally, he is opportunistic, taking advantage of others' plights to better his own situation, before only then taking any pity, if at all. He has morals, but they are extreme- murder, rape and robbery are the only crimes he believes to be worth punishment, and he'll refuse to commit himself.

As a friend, he is useful, and reliable. He's quick to offer a helping hand- even if he expects help in return sometime later. He rarely leaves someone he considers to be a friend out to hang, and would gladly give the shirt off his back for them to be safe; but once all is said and done, they'll owe him. Big time. He always makes good on his own debts, assuming he remembers to, and if others fail to do the same for him, well, he'll force it. His favorite method of forcing repayments? Blackmail, of course.

2.1  Ideals

Traits

Anxious, dramatic, hot-headed, controlling

  • Outlook: Pessimistic
  • Sociability: Introverted, Dominant
  • Expression: Dominant
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral

Motivations

  • Self-Sustainability
  • Self-Satisfaction
  • Proving Fox wrong and that she's a total bitch 'cause he can totally thrive alone, fuck you.

Fears

  • Children: This counts as a fear for Jackal, who hasn't a single paternal bone in his body. Children are strange and smelly and unpredictable. You can't reason with them.
  • Dieing Alone: Despite his determination to prove Fox wrong, her premonitions that he'll die alone without her leaves him cold at night, and doesn't help his drinking problem.

Biases

  • Packs: None; though he questions any groups that have bias of their own.
  • Species: None; although he jokes to some degree that wolves are pompous and fruity. He's a dick.
  • Non-Luperci: He understands not wanting to be turned, and respects their decision to remain on all fours; though he gripes that they should stick to their own kind- lupus-lovers make civilized life more difficult for those who'd rather not have to hold open doors for dogs all day.
  • Gender: Women are beautiful and he generally thinks them better than men, but then, he's weak to a pair of pretty blue eyes.
  • Color: On that note, he's a fan of exotic looks; bright coats, unique markings, unique breeds- but it has to be authentic. No dyes or masks, man.
  • Sexuality: He's basically straight, but has no problem with any other sexuality, as long as his own is respected.
  • Age: Children are scary and awful. The elderly are always fun to listen to and drink with. Young men are idiots. Young ladies are reckless. He tends to associate most those his own age, or only slightly younger, on a personal level- but only because those are the ones that judge him or annoy him the least.

Sexuality

Highly sexual fuckboi, he goes for anything with breasts and a cute tail- he isn't picky and he's almost always up for something. Straighter than saints when sober, Jack has admittedly fooled around with males in the past while drunk. He tries not to let it happen, but sometimes, he's as easy to sweep off his feet drunk as his girls are when he's sober. He's polygamous by nature, and has serious commitment issues that he claims is due to his age- why settle down now if I haven't so far, right?.

Interests

  • Likes: Leather-Working, Exploring, Adventures, Drinking- his favorite is ale, Flirting, Shagging, Getting Richer
  • Dislikes: Big Spending, Crappy Booze, Raw Fish, Friendly Advice, Children, Teenagers, Anyone who'd hit a lady.
    • No seriously, if he catches someone hitting some pretty girl, and she's not holding her own, he will f**k your day up, son.

Substances

Well first off, as stated a few times above, Jack's become quite the drunk. He's rarely entirely sober, and when he is, he's cranky and hung-over. He wasn't so bad until his relationship with his sister Fox took a downhill turn after her pregnancy. He hates the habit but loves the booze, gripes that he could quit any time he wants, but desperately wishes someone would step in because he knows its not true. His alcoholism is a serious problem that he faces on the daily. Surprisingly, however, he functions well drunk, and most accept his alcoholism as a part of his character, once they've seen him work well despite it. He's drunkest at night, though there are the rare days or rarer spans where he'll try to quit, or actually manage to sober up- often, emotional let-downs trigger another downwards spiral, which isn't uncommon for the low-key fragile-hearted Jack.

Jack also smokes tobacco regularly. He's tried cannabis but so far doesn't care for the smell. He hasn't tried any other substances so far, though he's helped Fox through many bad trips and benders, so knows that many other substances do exist; he pointedly stays away from hallucinogens, as these were Fox's worst experiences that he's had to sit through.

Spirituality

Openly, he rejects religion and mocks spirituality as being voodoo magic and daydreams. Internally, he believes very much that there are higher powers, spirits and an afterlife- and even fears his own fate on the other side. His outward rejection however has led to his knowledge being very limited, and so, he doesn't have any patron diety of his own that he worships or prays to.

2010

  • 31 Oct: A year old now, Jackal and Fox are thriving, have mastered their Optime forms, and still live with their mother as nomads.
  • 10 Nov: Jackal and Fox's mother falls ill. Neither take notice of the change until it's too late.
  • 15 Nov: Tanya passes away in her sleep, due to dehydration from her illness. The twins inherit her caravan and after a brief burial, begin traveling alone.

2011

  • 03 Jan: Jackal and Fox make the decision to head East, following rumors of their father having headed in that direction recently.
  • 20 Jul: Jackal and Fox hear once more of their Father's explorations and narrow their search down to Nova Scotia.
  • 31 Oct: Jackal and Fox are now two years old. Fox undergoes her first heat cycle, which is more suffering than sultry.
  • 20 Dec: In-Game History begins as Jackal and Fox arrive in Nova Scotia, finally, and find instead their half sister Sky.

2012 through 2016

  • All Year: Jackal and Fox settle in Berwick and stay there for some time as rogues. They travel regularly to Halifax and other surrounding cities, packs and ports to make trades; Jackal happily assumes the job of 'hired muscle' alongside his sister's charismatic Sales Pitches. Life is good, and the two live out a simple existence under the noses of the packs they live between.

2017

  • 16 Apr: Fox falls pregnant to a rogue. Jackal and Fox argue over the situation- she's distressed and doesn't want the pups. Jackal is delighted to become an uncle.
  • 20 Apr: Fox aborts her pregnancy. The two have a vicious falling out over it.
  • 19 Jul: Jackal and Fox still live together, but Fox announces that she's going to prepare for a journey West. Jackal isn't happy about it.

  • 16 Sep: Jackal gets loaded in Halifax and sleeps around with anyone willing. Possibility that this could result in illegitimate offspring, not that he thinks of it.
  • 20 Sep: Jackal finally sobers up enough to crawl home.
  • 24 Sep: Someone breaks into Jackal's home, robs him of his stores, and he's left without food or drink in stock. He decides it's not worth staying anymore and packs his cart.
  • 01 Oct: Jackal's not doing so well on his own, and it's taken days to prepare, but he finally leaves the house he and Fox had all but rebuilt together.
  • 12 Oct: He's wandered the various cities until now. He finally settles on joining a local pack. On the way back there from Saint John, his horse breaks a leg and his cart loses a wheel and he's left to carry only what he can on his back as he joins his new family; Anathema.
