Janus Vela

Janus was born on 03 March 2013, along with his siblings Reluceo Vela and Thiago Vela, in Onuba.


Currently on the run after escaping from the Amaranthe dungeons with his siblings, the three fled to Freetown. Upon hearing rumors about the Big T's two daughters were in the area, Janus and his siblings made their way to Krokar, joining up with them to gain security from Semini. Janus keeps up a good act, relishing in his swindling outside the pack. For the purposes of his image, he aims for the trade path, a means to allow him time away from the pack and indulge in his trouble-making.

Appearance

Basics

Essentials

  • Species: Being from Onuba, Janus clearly looks like a mix of dog breeds.
  • Fur: In terms of colors, Janus' fur takes after his border collie and german shepard heritage. In terms of structure, his fur takes after the wavy look of his border collie heritage, giving him some extra fluff, but not enough to hide his lean figure.
    • Optime Hair: Janus' hair is very short, and normally not very well kept, even when he is with his siblings.
  • Facial Features: Janus' facial features follow from to border collie side of his family heritage. Unlike his siblings, his ears stand upright while the others flop over.
  • Build and Size: Janus is average sized considering the breeds of dogs his family comes from. He is very lean, which is normal for them considering their poor state back in Onuba.
  • Humanization: High. With coming from Onuba, Janus has been known to wear clothing almost all the time. When he is out in public, he prefers to wear very low quality clothing to help with his manipulation. When he is at home or with his siblings, he prefers to wear something much nicer, or nothing depending on how he feels.

Forms

Lupus

71 lbs (32 kg)27 in (68.5 cm)
Janus' lupus form takes after the collie traits in his family, adding some extra fluff to his fur and tail, but it is still easy to spot how lean he is. he doesn't have much muscle to his body, prefering to use this form for its speed rather than strength. Even after swindling or stealing, he will shift to better escape if he doesn't have his horse.

Secui

135 lbs (61 kg)38 in (96.5 cm)
Even with the extra muscle gained in his secui form, there really is not much difference in Janus' appearance from his lupus form besides the increase in size. He rarely uses this form, usually not seeing a need for it at all. Should there be a need, he will use it.

Optime

160 lbs (72.5 kg)5ft 7in (67 in) (170 cm)
Janus' lupus form and optime form share the same features in terms of body and face with each other. In optime form, he grows very short hair that is normally in a mess. He prefers not to keep up with his hair to help with his acts.

Personality

  • Easygoing, calm, relaxed
    • Janus generally gives of a feeling of relaxation, especially when around his family and those he has come to trust. Even with strangers, he is generally kind to them, unless he finds they are out on business that involves some kind of trade. Then his under-handed side of him comes out. Despite that, he can be very easygoing, and eager to chat with others.
  • Protective
    • With his family and prospects that need to be safe, Janus can get protective of them. He is not the best fighter by any means, but he does what he can, even if that means putting on some kind of show, since he is better at lieing than he is fighting.
  • Selfish
    • Janus can be a bit selfish when it comes to claiming security and wealth, but the exception to this rule are his siblings. He shares everything with them, but can be known to keep a lot of things for himself. Even if other friends and those he knew where to be interested in something of his, they had to trade for it.
  • Manipulative, Two-faced
    • This side of him only applies when it comes to his swindling tactics or when trying to play someone to get something for free. Janus is a very good actor, and can play just about any part, whether he is trying to claim something by himself, or with the help of his siblings. He can take risks, but once they start getting out of hand, he is quick to retreat.

Spirituality

Janus is completely uninterested in anything with a spiritual nature to it, unless it is an item with a story to help promote it for better trading use.

Skills and Inventory

Abilities

Skills

Trading

  • Swindling (Expert): With living on the streets with his siblings, Janus developed a talent in swindling, deceiving others to get exactly what he wants. It was a talent used very heavily back in Onuba, and one that was brought with him when they escaped to Freetown/Krokar.
  • Manipulation (Expert): Janus is very skilled at putting on a face for others, especially for the means of her siblings stealing items, or playing the victim to get items for free.

Other

  • Hunting (Journeyman): Janus is alright when it comes to hunting. Many of his meats and pelts come from his actual hunting rather than from stolen goods. He helps to provide for his siblings with his hunting as well as his trading tactics.
  • Armed Combat (Dabbler): Since Janus prefers to run away from his problems and any trouble he gets himself into, he isn't well trained in fighting, especially when it comes to weapons.
