(Colors here aren't super accurate because traditional media lol)

Kyrios Lykoi is the only son of Myrika Tears and Vesper, born in Inferni, where he has lived all his life.

Growing up, Kyrios is privileged and spoiled. The only son of the clan's matriarch, he had the run of the land in many ways and the best of everything Inferni could provide him. He was the most rambunctious of his litter and quite arrogant as a child.

As an adult, Kyrios appears to most as a vain, lazy prince and a harmless, if sometimes annoying, flirt. He likes gossip and drama, but is almost never involved in any. He can still be quite condescending at times, though it's usually more subtle. But he rarely talks about himself, has no apparent interest in justifying his better-than-thou attitude, keeps most people at arm's length, and does not seem to have ambition beyond doing as little as possible around the pack.

  • Everything else

2.  Appearance

Kyrios is pretty vain about his appearance and hates getting dirty. He knows he's a pretty boy.

2.1  Essentials

  • Species: Clearly a coyote-dominant hybrid with large, pointed ears and bottle-brush tail. Muzzle is wolfish in length, but tapers like a coyote.
  • Coat & Markings: Kyrios is predominantly a warm cream color, which can look orangey in bright sunlight. He has a white dorsal stripe on his muzzle, which fades briefly before starting against on his forehead and stretching to his mid-back and mixing with reddish tan and black. White brow dots accent his face, along with the black around his clear blue eyes.
    • Optime Hair: Mostly white with streaks of black/grey; longer in the front, shorter in the back, with a slight waviness. Usually brushed to one side of his face.
    • Tattoos & Piercings: Lykoi chaos star tattoo on his lower back. No piercings.
  • Build and Size: Larger than the average coyote, but smaller than the average wolf. Kyrios is leggy and slim. His musculature is subtle, but he has a lot of upper body and arm strength built up from years of archery. He is most often in his Optime form, but it's not uncommon to see him in his Lupus form, which he prefers when he doesn't want as much attention.
    • Lupus: 64 lbs (29 kg) — 24 in (63.5 cm)
    • Secui: 150 lbs (68 kg) — 40 in (124 cm)
    • Optime: 170 lbs (77 kg) — 5ft 7in (67 in) (145 cm)
  • Humanization: Moderate -- Doesn't have many accessories or casual clothing, but is often geared up for specific tasks, e.g. bowhunting or riding.

3.  Personality

On the surface, Kyrios is lazy, unambitious, and vain. He rarely volunteers his time or energy to others and often makes excuses to avoid duties he finds tedious, such as border patrol. He appears flaky and unreliable, often making casual promises he apparently forgets about immediately. A vivacious flirt with a side of muted arrogance, Kyrios is full of easy smiles, incessant teasing, and the occasional underhanded compliment. He's self-assured, confident, and employs sarcasm frequently.

He enjoys conversation and can carry on intelligently on most topics, even if he doesn't actually know much about it (often this involves flattering the other party into explaining to him, if he wants to know more about it). He is especially fond of gossip about other people's lives and relationships, though he is almost never directly involved. Indeed, he rarely talks about himself at all and is incredibly adept at steering other parties in other directions and convincing them (even somewhat unwillingly) to talk about whatever he wants to hear about.

Kyrios keeps most people at a comfortable distance and is content to let them think him a condescending fool. He enjoys positive attention only as far as it doesn't come with any expectations (so mostly he likes being admired for his appearance or other superficial traits), but is probably happiest when others regard him with dismissive annoyance.

Kyrios is actually quite sure of himself and has a great sense of his own abilities, but he doesn't like others praising him for them, or coming to have the expectation that he can always perform well at certain tasks. He is afraid of failure in many areas of life and holds to the idea that he can't disappoint others if they never believed in him in the first place.

To some extent, Kyrios feels that the women of his family are better than the men. Myrika's kindness, Vesper's dutifulness, and Vicira's ambition all intimidate him, and he feels that he has little to offer in comparison. He is content to support his family in their various endeavors (better yet, if they don't know he's doing anything to help) while having none of his own.

Kyrios is dedicated, though he is loathe to show it or admit to it. They are rare enough, but he keeps the promises he means. He avoids setting goals, but if there is one -- a real one he actually cares about -- he will pursue it tirelessly.

4.  Abilities & Skills

4.1  Strengths

Archery, Marksmanship

  • Starting around 9 months of age, he's devoted more time to archery than any other skill, practicing frequently on his own and with others. He tends to pass off his interest as casual though, and few know the true extent of his abilities. Both his accuracy and the amount of force he shoots with are extremely formidable.
  • Kyrios is drawn to archery as both an art and a deadly weapon and especially likes that skill can be developed independent of physical strength or intimidation, as well as age.
  • He also really appreciates being able to deal a lot of damage at a safe distance and being able to injure or kill without getting his hands dirty.
  • As of spring 2016, begins making his own bows, learning on his own and refining his skill by learning from his mistakes.

Hunting

  • Kyrios is quite skilled at observing, tracking, and taking down prey. It's what he spends most of his free time doing.
  • He prefers large game, but also enjoys pursuing rabbits, boars, and pheasants.
  • He almost exclusively bowhunts.

Horsemanship

  • Adept at basic maintenance and care for both horses and reindeer.
  • Does not have a lot of patience for training, but if he's motivated enough, can usually succeed in it.
  • Kyrios tends to bond strongly with particular mounts and sometimes has difficulty working with unfamiliar animals (because he's impatient).
  • Though he's comfortable working with both horses and reindeer, has a high preference for reindeer for hunting.

Emotional intelligence

  • Highly perceptive, generally able to tell when people are lying, either to him or to themselves.
  • Good at identifying what others want or what they're looking for.
  • Excellent and casual liar; adept at telling tall tales with maximum sincerity.
  • Also super great at ignoring himself and his own feelings and desires (wait is this a strength or--)

4.2  Weaknesses

Fighting

  • Kyrios is small, slender, comparatively light, and never spent a lot of time learning to fight. He hates getting dirty and prefers striking from a long distance away, rather than getting in the thick of a melee fight.
  • His close combat fighting skills are mostly instinctive and is slightly more adept in Lupus and Secui form. He's light on his feet and reasonably fast, but doesn't hit very hard.

Physical strength

  • Not a dude you want to ask to help you carry anything. (Also: he would definitely not volunteer to or agree to carry anything for you.)
  • Actually has very strong muscle build in his chest, shoulders, and arms, but all of his strength is in pulling back arrows and not in any other kind of task.

Motivation

  • Has difficulty being motivated to do tasks he finds boring, unnecessary, unpleasant, or hard.
  • Tends to give up quickly or become disinterested after a short time.
  • Does not often apply himself when there are witnesses (e.g. will miss a lot more shots accidentally on purpose if he's hunting with someone he isn't particularly close to).

Sense of self-worth

  • Believes he's inferior to all his immediate family members.
  • Doesn't really think he'll matter much in the course of Inferni history.
  • Confident in specific skills, but not in his overall ability to meet others' expectations, even if they're in things he's otherwise confident in.

4.3  Other

Kyrios was taught to read and write at a young age and remains reasonably capable in these areas, though he doesn't utilise the skill often. He sometimes scribbles notes to himself to track prey migration patterns or to remind himself of incidents or failures in his bow-making endeavors, but he doesn't read often. He prefers to learn by doing and absorbs knowledge much better through having a conversation about it than reading about it or simply being told.

5.  Relationships

5.1  Family

  • Extended: Kyrios is related to half of Nova Scotia through the Lykoi family, his father's Kimaris and Nothing families, and his distant Sadira relatives. He is only directly aware of Inferni Lykoi connections, but would not be surprised to learn that any given stranger is related to him.
  • Myrika Tears is Kyrios's blood mother. He always admired her kindness and dedication. Her gradual depression and eventual departure from Inferni hurt him in ways he's unable to express. The abandonment leaves him insecure, as Myrika was one of the most devoted individuals he knew.
  • Vesper is his other mother, whom he admires for her strength and drive to protect. Though he understood Vicira's resentment, Kyrios had secretly thought that Vesper taking the title of Aquila was for the best. As time passed and Vesper's paranoia grew, however; Kyrios starts worrying about Vesper's happiness and mental wellbeing, and wonders if she, too, might abandon Inferni in the end.
  • Vicira Tears is Kyrios's sister. They're generally on good terms, but as adults, aren't particularly close. Kyrios quietly worries about Vicira a lot and that for all her amibition, she might eventually end up as an unhappy leader like their parents. He does what he can to support her endeavors without her knowledge.
  • Maeriia Asylum is his sister who departed Inferni with their aunt Cassandra Asylum just before their first birthday. Kyrios admired (and was a little intimidated by) Maeriia's headstrongness and fearlessness, but he never understood her wanderlust. Wonders a lot if she's still alive.
  • Cartier Inferni and Versace Inferni are his adoptive siblings. He's on friendly terms with both, but not particularly close to either. He teases Cartier often for being as dedicated and dutiful as he is and is occasionally borderline cruel about it. Kyrios low-key resents Cartier for being everything Vesper apparently wanted in a son, which feeds into his lack of desire to try harder. Versace's judginess and Kyrios's arrogance put them at odds often, but though they're never not arguing (sometimes using pretty harsh words), they don't really take each other seriously.

5.2  Other

Pack Relations

  • He thinks Antioch de le Poer is too serious and a little boring. Likes to flirt with him to annoy Versace though!
  • Kyrios likes playing with puppies, but can be rather irresponsible with them. He tends to (subtly) encourage them to break rules or to be sneaky and he'll take them out on adventures or riding with his reindeer without informing their parents. While he's generally pretty capable of supervising pups and not stupid enough to do anything too extreme, he's definitely inadverdantly put pups in danger before. So far, everything's worked out though, and the pups are carefully instructed to not let their parent(s) know about any incident. :')

Outsider Relations

  • Lokr Revlis is a good friend and bowhunting buddy, who helped Kyrios with many of the basics of archery, tracking, and hunting. Kyrios looks up to Lokr with respects to many things and tends to be more honest with him than most.
