1.  Appearance

1.1  Essentials

Basics

Lorkan has a strong jaw with high cheekbones and a longish muzzle, vaguely shepherd-esque. He is handsome in an unconventional way. His face seems to lapse naturally into sullenness, and the hardness in the lines of his expression highlight both the strength and delicacy there—a curious juxtaposition.

He is broad-shouldered and narrow about the waist. His build is suggestive of power, but the harshness of street life has whittled him down to sinew. His ambiguous scent and eclectic catalogue of features mark him very clearly as a hybrid. While his dog blood is most apparent, his overall wiriness and angularity call attention to the coyote in him.

In terms of pelt, Lorkan borrows heavily from the Belgian Teruvian of old. He is predominately chocolate in color, but his hands, saddle, chest, and muzzle are all black as soot. His eyes are reminiscent of witch hazel, rich gold darkening to blood orange around the pupil. He has a silky double-coat which lends him a somewhat windswept appearance.

In Optime, his hair is dark and loosely curled, coming down to the base of his skull in lazy whorls. He cannot stand to have his movement restricted and thus is not very fond of clothing. He carries a tattered leather bag out of convenience where he stores most of his belongings, namely a pair of scavenged daggers and an old, rusted crowbar.

Interaction

  • General Posture and Body Language: Dominant but closed-off, hostile; ready to leap into action at a moment's notice.

2.  Personality

Lorkan is very much a product of his upbringing: solemn and suspicious, not inherently sadistic but also not afraid to use violence to achieve his aims. His sense of morality is dictated largely by convenience, or what is most beneficial to himself and, to a lesser extent, his allies. He will lie, cheat, and steal if it ensures his continued survival, but derives little pleasure from such acts. He is also an exceedingly stubborn individual—often to his detriment—with an incongruous ego which makes him reluctant to accept help.

Though young and still fresh to betrayal, Lorkan’s taste of it has nonetheless been singularly bitter. His trust is no easy thing; it is hard to win and harder to keep, and he is merciless towards those who he perceives to have committed deceptions. To him, this is not a matter of revenge, but of preparing for every eventuality. His expectation is to be hurt, which has led to his perception of others' actions and motives to become somewhat warped.

While not extremely charismatic, Lorkan has a rare charm beneath his chill exterior that can rear its head given the right occasion. His sense of humor is dry and often self-deprecating—sharp quips accompanied by a crooked grin.

2.1  Traits

Expression

Motivations

  • Self-preservation, independence, security

Fears

  • Betrayal, death, infirmity, vulnerability, possession

Interests

  • Likes: Fighting, freedom, solitude, wilderness
  • Dislikes: Crowds, overly friendly individuals

Biases

  • Species: Completely indifferent; grew up surrounded by hybrids.
  • Gender: Has had very limited experience with women in the past. More wary around them.
  • Age: Dismissive of those who are unable to fend for themselves.

Sexuality

  • Demisexual with a low libido; no gender preference
  • His distrustful nature makes relationships difficult. Any partnership he does enter, however, would likely be a very intense one, as doing so to him constitutes an ultimate act of trust.
  • Any sort of unfaithfulness or deceit on the other person's part would be very badly received.

Spirituality

  • Has some concept of an afterlife due to his encounters with spirits, but little interest in the nature of said afterlife.
  • Naturally sensitive to the spirit world, he has no need for rituals.
  • Uninterested as to whether or not there is a higher power beyond the supernatural influences of the dead.

Substances

  • Will not turn down tobacco (from trusted sources) but does not actively seek it out.
  • Avoids alcohol on the grounds of remaining alert, though it is largely due to the fact that he cannot hold his liquor.

2.2  Skills

  • Combat: A scrappy and resourceful fighter, Lorkan is quick-footed and can think on his feet. He does not take a blow well, so his style consists mainly of dodges and opportunistic strikes. He prefers his daggers but can make do with most sharp objects, and use his fists when need be. He will employ dirty tactics to take down his opponents, such as throwing dirt and targeting “soft-bits” like the eyes and groin.
    • He is hard to catch or knock off his feet, but vulnerable to being pinned down and manipulated by larger foes due to his small size.
    • His smallness becomes more of a liability in Lupus form due to his inability to wield weapons. He makes a rule of avoiding potentially hazardous situations in this form and getting out of rather than winning encounters where this is inevitable.
  • Thievery: Lorkan has nimble fingers and a light touch. Much like the scavenger birds he holds a fondness for, he survives off of the fruits of others. He is no stranger to pickpocketry and has burgled small settlements in the past with the help of his gang.
    • Lorkan lacks the charisma to be able to talk himself out of tricky situations and is not a convincing liar. When caught, his options are effectively to fight or flee.
    • Having had very little formal instruction on the matter, he relies on his gut to help him single out targets and can be hasty in doing so. This has led to a number of situations in the past where a mark turned out to be more than he bargained for, but he has learned from some of his mistakes.
  • "Otherworldly" Connection: While not necessarily a skill, strictly-speaking, Lorkan is extremely sensitive to the presence of spirits and this sensitivity has only heightened as he’s gotten older.
    • Although he has acquired a greater deal of control over these “otherworldly” interactions—and through conscious effort has been able to limit his receptivity to them—recent events have taught him that this is not always enough. He is much more cautious now about engaging with the “other side,” but struggles sometimes to keep his curiosity from getting the better of him.
    • Especially powerful spirits, malevolent ones in particular, might be able to exploit some of these vulnerabilities.

5.  History

Lorkan grew up in the ruins of a sprawling city with a high adolescent population. He “lost” his parents when he was very young—though it was likely he was abandoned—and was taken in by a gang of street youths who taught him to defend himself and scavenge and thieve in order to survive. He developed an affinity for the carrion birds which flocked the city, namely a young crow called Cackle who he took as a companion (although the bird maintains that it was the other way around).

His experiences with spirits began early on in his life—innocently enough, "imaginary" friends and what-not—but escalated over time. After a jarring encounter with a particularly insidious entity who sought to take possession of his body, Lorkan closed himself off to “otherworldly” contact. He left the gang sometime later, eager to escape the harsh climate of city life. Knowing his sudden departure would not be well-received, he set out to put as much distance as possible between him and his former home.

This did not go entirely according to plan; other members of the gang caught wind of his intentions from one of his friends, who he had made the mistake of confiding in, and pursued him relentlessly. He narrowly managed to escape, but was seriously wounded in the process, sustaining deep gashes across his lower abdomen at his confidant's own hands.

5.1  Post Log & Archives

April–May 2018

Lorkan stumbled upon 'Souls in late April of 2018, badly wounded and sick with fever, where he encountered the medic Asura Creo. While he (begrudgingly) accepted her aid, he stubbornly refused to travel to Sapient with her, and he and Cackle continued on their own. They found shelter in an old hunting cabin and subsequently encountered Tristan Stormbringer.
