by Gen

Khalifa D'Angelo is the eldest son born to Sybil Moineau at the University Of New England after a short love affair with Ankh D'Aabt, shortly after the birth of his first litter. He left his family to travel and make a name for himself, and his path to 'Souls is paved by deceit, mischief, and a hunger for power and prestige. Quite the capable businessman, there are very few situations that Khalifa cannot talk his way out of.

After months of accumulating a meager fortune and an invaluable repertoire, he arrived to the Thistle Kingdom, eager to prove his worth to the crown — and little, if anything, will stand in fervent climb to the top, least of all his Amazonian sister and her fledgling household.

In accordance to Salsolan tradition, he often takes on the moniker of Gabriel the traveling tradesman outside of Salsolan territory, and he helps perpetuate the rumors and lies about the Kingdom so that outsiders keep away. Very rarely will an outsider or member of another pack be granted his true identity unless there is no explicit harm in doing so.

1.  Basics

1.1  Appearance

Physical

Clothing & Accessories

Coloration Palette

  • Description:
Very Egyptian Hound in nature; his ears are upright, unlike his siblings', and he reeks of mixed heritage. His fur is relatively thick, perhaps slightly thinner than a wolf's coat.
  • Optime Hair: Short with a bit of a wave, cut fairly short near his ears.
  • Build and Size:
She is rather small compared to other canines, but her self-assured posture makes up for this. She is almost always found in her Optime form.
  • Lupus: 33 in (84 cm) ↔ 90 lbs (41 kg)
sometimes used. He is thin, almost gangly, lacking substantial muscle. Notably doggish.
  • Secui: 45 in (114 cm) ↔ 170 lbs (77 kg)
rarely used. He does indeed grow in size, but he is nowhere near as intimidating as others visiting this form.
  • Optime: 6 ft 8 in (80 in / 203 cm) ↔ 250 lbs (113 kg)
commonly used. Tall and lean, Khali displays many of his doggish traits well in this form.
  • Humanization:
Highly humanized, he's good with his hands and likes wearing fancy clothes from time to time. Though, more or less, sometimes he wears clothes, sometimes he doesn't; depends if he feels like it. He tends to look down on those that do not embrace their more humanized capabilities.

Interaction

  • Speech: Smooth, baritone, somewhat monotonous but rises in tone when he's incensed; think Saitama.
  • Scent: Almost always disguised with bayberry or meadowsweet, which are both pretty potent smells.
  • Quirks, Gestures, Etc.: Tends to grin a lot when in conversation, which can look rather smug; he's just a pretty smug guy in general, actually, and he doesn't try to hide that.
  • General Posture and Body Language: Relaxed, subdued, level-headed; crosses his arms over his chest a lot and exudes smoothness.

1.2  Personality

Personality

Khalifa D'Angelo is not a good man.

Silver-tongued and scheming, the dark son is almost always in it for the long haul; every action is carefully planned out and premeditated in accordance to the grand design. This isn't to say he isn't privy to thinking on the fly, however, and Khalifa has proven himself rather slippery in the company of strangers and peers alike. First and foremost, he is interested in furthering his own goals, and even though he might appear concerned with the plights of others, they are unimportant to him — indeed, his ascent in Salsola has less to do with furthering their ideals and more so with carving himself a little piece of paradise.

Eternally patient though he may seem, he is prone to losing his temper in the most bombastic of ways; words are his most powerful weapon, and anyone that seeks to cross him will not be spared the metaphorical blade. He finds it difficult to empathize with others outside of a superficial scale and generally views them as tools.

Though he gathers more and more small riches into his possession, it will never be enough. It is a lifelong struggle that, in time, will lead to his downfall, as much as he thinks himself as besting the odds.

Traits

  • Outlook: Make the most of what you've got — or, alternatively, make the most of what others have once you swipe it from them.
  • Sociability: Silver-tongued, smooth, conversational: Khal is a social butterfly.
  • Expression: Despite his flat tone, he can really express himself through hand motions and body language; often times he will convey a false message, however, one designed to keep him on top.
  • Motivations: Cha-ching, baby. All about that green. $$$
  • Fears: Being stripped of everything he holds dear: title, rank, possessions, etc.

Interests

  • Likes: Making deals, shaking hands and kissing babies; having others owe debts/favors to him
  • Dislikes: Stupid people that question his methods, any mention of his ears being too big, owing debts himself

Biases

  • Packs: Has a natural inclination to Salsola and will generally dislike anyone that his Kingdom deems unworthy.
  • Species: No bias, considering he's a little bit of everything.
  • Non-Luperci: Yeahhhhh... kinda cringe, bro. You're welcome, Tetrad.
  • Gender: Believes men and women are inherently better at different things, though there are always exceptions to the rules.
  • Sexuality: He's seen a lot, so really nothing surprises or offends him anymore.
  • Age: Old people are basically useless. Sorry, gramps. ;(

Spirituality

No thanks. Atheistic and not looking to change. Religion is just a waste of time.

Sexuality

Heterosexual, mostly, and he separates sex from romance. In fact, sex is really just a tool to Khalifa, one he is not afraid to use when necessary, and he can distinguish actual feelings for someone from mere physical attraction. Aromantic, generally speaking. He hasn't quite figured out his type yet, which is fine; getting tied-down would make his life a hell of a lot harder, anyway.

Substances

Yes pleaaaase, as long as he can maintain some semblance of control. He is pretty good at faking drunkenness and being stoned so he can stay on top of things, but that doesn't mean this boy does not know how to have a good time. ;)

2.  Relationships

2.1  Family

Generally speaking, Khalifa knows very little about his family's history beyond whatever he's gleaned from his mother or on his travels (in fact, he only knows his own father through reputation alone, having never met the man himself before his untimely death). He is aware that they are prolific throughout 'Souls and takes this in stride, using their familiar name to his advantage. Additionally, although he is largely unaware of many of his cousins or half-siblings, they are equally as unimportant; so long as he can make use of his association, he will gladly present himself as a dutiful son.

Aella

  • Gender: Female
  • Species: Horse
  • Date of Birth: ~ June 2016
  • Key Features: Very skittish. Nervous around new people. Khali constantly has to reassure her with nose taps or stroking her ear. She is quiet and dutiful and not much else

Salsolans may assume:

  • Seeing Aella in the stables
  • Aella being anxious ./////.
