Kronin Massacre is one of three siblings born to Catharsis Massacre and Namira Lykoi during a non-consensual encounter in Portland, Maine. He was born on May 16, 2019 in Portland, but when his mother was killed at their home in July 2019, he and his siblings were stolen by the very man who first hurt their mother: Catharsis.

What would follow after would be the worst time of Kronin's life.

1.  Appearance

1.1  Essentials

Basics

Lupus: Average height, whip-thin, and long-limbed: Kronin has the distinct look of an adolescent still growing into his body, no matter how old he gets. Malnourishment at a young age will keep him from ever fully growing into his full potential height, no matter how much he could attempt to bulk up. His knobby frame is swathed in utterly plain shades of brown, cream and russet, befitting his coyote background. Murky red eyes and dark chocolate markings cover his shoulders and hips; unfortunate nods to his father's appearance, though there is little he can do to change them. His body is littered with small scars and nicks, but nothing of note, other than a tuft of fur on his right shoulder that doesn't grow in the same direction as the rest. Though he is lean, his muscles are strong: he is a lot more powerful than can be imagined at first glance. When he bites, he has no intention of letting go.

Optime: Kronin tries to spend as little time as possible in this form, when the choice is his (and oftentimes it isn't). He used to pretend that he was having trouble shifting between forms in order to stay on four legs, but as he grows older, that excuse becomes more and more implausible. He keeps his hair short in this form, though often neglects cutting it for as long as he possibly can - as such, his hair is often in his eyes or curling up at the base of his neck. Kronin's posture is almost eerily neutral, designed carefully to detract notice. Though currently unadorned, he prefers clothes that are tighter to his body, such as long-sleeved shirts and trousers. Later, when he grows to be more humanized, he will often choose clothing with a large hood to safely secure his animal companions within.

Humanization: Low. Kronin rarely, if ever, wears clothing at this current time, and knows very little about pack life or the kinds of technologies that it brings. He prefers to stay as canine as possible when on the road.

Interaction

  • Speech: Under-breath, rather monotone. Will grow into a lower bass-baritone timbre.
  • Scent: The tang of iron-heavy clay.
  • Quirks, Gestures, Etc.: He doesn’t like to be touched, and will go to protect his stomach if someone reaches for him.
  • General Posture and Body Language: He carries himself as ‘forced neutral’, if a little meek; all ways to blend in. If one really looks they can see how it’s all a bit of an act - more a wolf pretending to be ‘normal’ - but most equate it to him being a little stand-off-ish. This only really bothers those that get close to him, as they feel he rarely lets any feelings show and even more rarely empathizes.

1.3  Personality

  • Independent: Kronin enjoys to support himself and make his own decisions, without the help or influence of others. He considers it a point of personal pride to be able to take care of himself. This does not make him a bad team player; he’ll go along with a plan if it seems like the right thing for him to do. The difficulty comes when he has to relinquish any part his own independence - and thus his ability to freely move - for the sake of group betterment.
  • Withdrawn: When given the chance, Kronin prefers to stay on the outskirts of a group. His low self-esteem makes it hard for him to reach out to form strong bonds. Being naturally extroverted and anxious about being left totally alone, this behaviour only serves to stifle him more as he grows older.
  • Smart: Kronin is quick to pick up things, and learns through watching. He’s not the type to ask many questions and would rather figure something out by trying it himself, rather than discussing the theory behind it.
  • Untrusting: Especially of male authority figures. Kronin has basic level trust issues that make it hard for him to form attachments. This often leads to a sense of hyper-independence, and aggression when forced to put his fate in the hands of others. He has episodes where he may hoard foods or goods from others, worried that he won’t have enough for himself. He has no qualms against lying, and does so often to avoid being controlled.
  • Ambitionless: Having spent so long just trying to survive, and after months of being convinced of his low worth, Kronin has very little idea what else he can be reasonably good at. He’s often confused when others offer to teach him new skills, and has a difficult time judging his actual ability level.
  • Aggressive: Often without meaning to be. Kronin has a poor sense of how physical he is, both in play and when provoked. This can lead to unintended injury. The physical language that he grew up with is a poor litmus test for normalcy. He feels quite horrible about this when it’s brought to his attention.
  • Somatic symptom disorder: Kronin experiences phantom ulcer-like pains in his abdomen, which started as part of his traumatic upbringing. These often arise in periods of high stress, and lead him into periods of anxiety-based fasting and general troubles with eating. These pains rarely last for more than a few days.
  • Affinity towards animals: Kronin cares more about animals than he cares about other wolves. He doesn’t have to worry whether or not they’ll break his trust. His relationships with animals help him to relieve a lot of his anxiety and natural need to socialize. He will collect a small menagerie around himself as he grows older.

He’s too young to know!

Spirituality

Kronin doesn’t believe in any sort of higher power, but would be easily susceptible to joining some kind of cult or religious group (especially if lead by a female leader). The boy’s got a lot of pent up self-hate that repentance would do a number on.

Substances

Never tried any substances, and the smell of cigarette smoke just makes his stomach curdle.

1.4  Skills

Strengths

  • Strength (Journeyman): Brief description on interest level and training. Anything goes! Skills, talents, and strong points of character (e.g. confident, charismatic) can go here with or without a ranking.
  • Strength (Journeyman): Brief description on interest level and training.
  • Strength (Accomplished): Brief description on interest level and training.
  • Strength (Master): Brief description on interest level and training.

Weaknesses

  • Sickly: Kronin’s stomach ulcer issues make his ability to commit to something tricky, especially if the obligation is months away.
  • Unpredictable: He makes for a poor battle partner; one day he can be too afraid to fight, one day he’ll be so aggressive that he can’t stop himself. In those moods, he won’t stop throwing the last punch until he’s physically dragged off his opponent’s body. A better wolf than him would be able to rein this in to make him a fine soldier; a worse wolf... well, everyone’s got their aims.

5.  History

He can remember very few things about his early childhood. A hug here, a lick there. He remembers what it feels like to be surrounded by love, to not think that every drop of kindness comes with a kick in the ribs later. And he remembers his mother: how she smelled of jasmine, and how she would nuzzle each of their cheeks before they fell asleep each night. How she was killed one night by a monster, and how that monster took them away. Since then, he tries to not remember much of anything. He was forced to travel with this monster wherever he (and his fists, and his teeth, and his horrible, horrible grin) decided to go. Sometimes it feels like he never really woke up - that he's still just in some extended nightmare. After all, monsters can't be real, right? But then he remembers the singe of a cigarette butt burning into his skin, or the slap to his face, and he knows that his childhood is over.

Now it's only the three of them, but even their sibling ties can't keep them together forever. That's just the reality that he's come to expect: people leave. It's only a matter of time until he's alone again.
