Messiah de le Poer was member of Inferni. The son of Priest de le Poer and Symera Villisca, he was raised to believe wolves are enemies and sought to make them atone for their sins through blood. His abusive nature led him to attack his fellow Infernians, and he ultimately committed suicide at his trial under the stealthy instruction of Prophet de le Poer.

125 lbs (57 kg) — 36 in (91.5 cm)

His Secui form bulks out with muscle but remains very lean.

Optime

150 lbs (58 kg) — 5ft 3in (63 in) (160 cm)

He is short and willowy with rangy muscle, very awkward in appearance.

Interaction

  • Speech: Messiah has a high voice and simple vocabulary -- when he is not threatening or guilting someone. He also snorts when he laughs, omg.
  • Scent: He smells of marshland, coyote, blood, and general "arousal" or excitement.
  • Quirks, Gestures, Etc.: Oral fixation, so often found chewing on something -- bones, sticks, anything to occupy his mouth.
  • General Posture and Body Language: Messiah has constantly-changing posture depending on what he's feeling, from submission to aggression. One constant is that his posture is always very active, forward, excited, very expressive. For example, if happy, he might bounce a little on his paws or really perk up; if submissive, he'll go the full extent to show his belly.

2.  Personality

Messiah is an awkward, absentminded boy, uncertain of himself, who idolizes his parents as the ultimate authority on life. Unfortunately, his parents happen to be sadistic, wolf-hating rapists who neglected him much of his childhood and culled his wolfish siblings.

As a result, Messiah is rather messed up. Desperately longing to be worthy in the eye of his parents, he obeys their word. He follows consistent morals -- albeit twisted, violent ones. He is a shy, awkward young man at the best of times, but sadistic and aggressive at his worst. Even his uncertain, daydreaming persona inspires only disgust. He is not endearing or charming -- he is apparently "off," uncomfortable to be around.

But he is not all twisted innocence, a poor individual shackled by a neglectful childhood. It is hard to pity Messiah, as he will openly emotionally abuse those close to him, the few he is able to. He preys on the weak out of opportunity, destroying others' concepts of themselves with guilt and conditional affection. Many won't call him manipulative -- manipulation implies a level-head, a keen eye or empathy, an ability to understand motives and fears and take advantage -- but he is an abuser and he will manipulate those he can without a deep mastery or understanding of it.

2.1  Ideals

Traits

Excitable, awkward, nervous, shy, abusive, aggressive

  • Outlook: Optimistic
  • Sociability: Extroverted -- Messiah feeds on others' energy though he is awkward and shy.
  • Expression: Submissive
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil

Motivations

  • Wolves -- killing them so they can atone for their sins
  • Parents -- following in their footsteps and obeying them
  • Inferni -- becoming a cool warrior in the clan!
  • Nephilim( de le Poer -- controlling him

Fears

  • Sin: Messiah fears sinning in the eyes of his parents. His attempt to eradicate wolves is also an attempt to eradicate sin.
  • Banishment from Inferni: He worries he will be turned away from Inferni or not live up to the expectations they hold.
  • Birds & Fish: It isn't a fear, per se -- but they creep him out at best. Mobs of birds terrify him, however.

Interests

  • Likes: Fighting, Lupus form, stories, taking advantage of the weak, warriors, chewing bones, bloodied and raw meat
  • Dislikes: Weapons, bullies, fleas, ridicule

Biases

  • Species: Wolves are sinners and need to atone with payment of blood. Wolfish coyote hybrids should have been culled out of mercy.
  • Packs: Inferni is the home of great warriors and stories. All other packs let in wolves and are therefore full of sin.
  • Age: He may show a tendency to abuse the young and old and infirm due to his power over them.
  • Gender: His feelings for girls tend to dominate his thoughts about them. He is neutral toward men, but women may find themselves the object of his obsession.

Sexuality

  • Heterosexual, lascivious
  • Outwardly, Messiah is awkward and shy with his affections -- obviously tongue-tied around beautiful ladies, almost endearing. However, his affections quickly become more sinister. He becomes obsessive, a voyeur, jealous, possessive, not certain how to get his feelings across appropriately.
  • As his only exposure to sex has been violent, non-consensual couplings, his view on what sex is like is likely warped. He might be sadistic and abusive even in encounters with those he has "good" feelings for.

Substances

  • Inexperienced, yet to try but willing with little pressure
  • Messiah would likely retain zero control over himself when intoxicated, showcasing the worst of his traits.

Spiritually

  • Messiah is not spiritual in the sense that he actively worships a god, but he does use the concept of sin and atonement as a grounds for his beliefs -- namely, that wolves are the enemy and to be killed. He believes in expiation by blood -- helping wolves "atone" for the sin of being a wolf by spilling that blood.
  • He is also afraid of his own sin. Since his morals are different than others', his concept of self-sin is not obeying the morals that his parents have set down for him, though this might change.

3.  Family

  • Extended: Messiah comes from several large, twisted, and infamous families: de le Poer, Lykoi, Massacre, Holocaust, and Addiction. He is aware that he has hundreds of cousins and has some affinity toward his relatives.

4.  Skills and Inventory

4.1  Abilities

Fighting

  • Education and Learning: Due to a violent lifestyle, Messiah learned to fight almost as soon as he learned to walk. His education involved fighting his littermates, tutoring from his parents, and attacking random wolves as a family pasttime.
  • Lupus (Journeyman): Messiah is adept on four legs, quick-hitting and violent in his attacks -- he relies on sheer ferocity more than skill most of the time.
  • Blades (Apprentice): He cannot handle a knife well yet, but he likes to shadow-spar and stab things.
  • If one can catch him or slow his brutal attacks, his small size makes him fragile.
  • His fighting style is obviously reckless -- any skilled fighter could take advantage of this, so he picks exclusively on the weak.
