1.  Appearance

Simple; to say the very least, Kierkegaard is an average beast based on physicality alone. His thick coat is composed of two primary colors: charcoal and ash. His coloration is considered odd based on his family traits and where his upbringing took place. He is substantially darker than his two siblings; where they are colored like pale smoke, he takes on the appearance of soot. In contrast to his dark pelt, Kierkegaard’s eyes are a brilliant shade of golden-orange. They seem to hold an air of sadness to them, if not a peculiar glint of anger. Aside from this oddity in expression, Kierkegaard is a somewhat ragged looking beast. His fur is unevenly cut and stands tall along his neck and shoulders, giving the impression that he could be considerably older than he actually is. He is tall, with lean legs and a long back leading to broad shoulders. His strength and muscle derives mostly from months of a nomadic lifestyle as opposed to brawling. Even in his physicality, he appears to have lived a solitary lifestyle.

There is, perhaps, a feral side to the northerner… at least, in looks. His legs and feet are scarred and cut, while his pelt is ragged and irregular in length. His brows are constantly furrowed and his lips rarely see a smile. Even his apparel seems wild and unnatural. He does not cover his chest with any sort of cloth or leather. His lower half is usually covered by black pants, cut at the knees. An orange rag is tied around his right bicep. Occasionally, he will wear a black bandana tied around his neck. He is a creature of simplicity.

Tall, though not bulky in musculature, he is only intimidating in the sense that he does not look as though he belongs with others. He does not carry earthly items with him on his travels, nor does he seem to have a strong attachment to anything other than what he has on his person at all times. Due to his mixed heritage, however, he does have a few oddities to his appearance in a longer muzzle, slender in appearance. His jaw is thick and provides him with a very distinguished jawline. His dark coat is thicker along his neck and shoulders, due to the dog blood from his father’s side of the family. He even has a small amount of scruff along his chin that is longer than the rest of his pelt, and being the only unnatural hair that he has in Optime form. Kierkegaard’s chest is barreled and appropriately sized to fit his thick shoulders. Apart from these features, he is nothing short of average.

2.  Personality

The culture behind where Kierkegaard was raised was very different than many of the places he traveled to throughout his life. He has spent a great deal of his time in a reclusive state, finding that he is not entirely used to the companionship of others. Kierkegaard is solitary and therefore can often be something of an enigma, if not feral, when faced with the obstacle of having to socialize. That’s not to say that he isn’t capable of being polite and well-mannered, only that his anxiety and emotions play a large part on how he reacts to conversation and company. Kierkegaard is primarily a listener, and finds it easier to feel empathy for others if he is not required to speak as often. His reclusive nature is, perhaps, derived from the nomadic lifestyle that he led after he turned a year of age. The northerner never spent longer than a week in a single place before moving on. His life was his travel, and for years he thought only of the next destination. Because of this, Kierkegaard did not understand how to form natural relationships of any sort. This led to a powerful sense of loneliness and later on, depression.

Kierkegaard is not a creature without knowledge or common sense. He’s quite capable of being verbal and even charming, in the right light. Most of his strength derives from his life experience as opposed to book-knowledge. He is a peculiar man in the sense that he seems almost unable to demonstrate his own intelligence.

Introverted to a fault, Kierkegaard was often overlooked by others. In the time that he spent with his two siblings, he found that he was not even prominent enough of a character to play second fiddle. Instead, he sunk further and further into the background, taking up the position of a follower instead of a leader. Self-confidence is not a strong character trait for the northerner. His only strength of character comes from his ability to tell the difference between right and wrong. He has a stoic nature, and though he is a lonely creature, he would never hesitate to defend someone who did not have the strength to defend themselves. Kierkegaard’s appearance is one of the most appropriate demonstrations of his personality. His appearance is wild and forlorn, and his personality has taken a large portion of that weight as well. The dark creature is good in spite of his strange preferences, but more than anything he favors loneliness to company.

3.  History

Born to Kaltok and Gins Iver, Kierkegaard was the eldest of three with a younger sister named Kjal and a brother named Kojak. He and his siblings were born in the high northern area of British Columbia to a nomadic pack, though their numbers were small. Their pack was a very religious one, and rewarded strong faith in its members. Kierkegaard spent a good majority of his childhood traveling with his family, attempting to understand the belief that was filtered down from their pack leaders. When he turned a year of age, Kierkegaard began to question the faith of the pack and left shortly after, realizing that he did not carry the same traits as those around him. Kojak and Kjal traveled with him for a short while before even they went their separate ways. Kierkegaard did not actively seek out other packs, but over time, he contemplated settling down in a single area. Due to his upbringing, the aching sense of wanderlust carried him away from any home he attempted to make.

At the age of two and a half, Kierkegaard had found a mate along his travels. Her name was Chepi, and she too had spent a great deal of her life in a nomadic environment. It didn’t take long before she expressed the desire to settle in one area. Kierkegaard was willing, and for five months, he made his home in a pack and even watched his first litter of pups begin their lives. His eldest son was named Kavar and his youngest was called Karkis. Kierkegaard stayed with them for the better part of five months before he slipped away from the pack and began to travel again. He did not feel as though he could equip his children well enough as a father, but knew that Chepi would be able to care for them until they could do that for themselves.

After leaving his children, Kierkegaard did not find another mate, nor did he stop his traveling to settle into another pack. Instead, he kept moving, and the further away from home he wandered, the more reclusive and antisocial he became until he could not remember what his children looked like, or that he had taken the time to find a mate. Settling down is not currently a priority to Kierkegaard. He prefers to have no ties and no loyalties to hold him back, but his loneliness does tend to lead him astray.
