Appearance

Basics

Essentials

  • Species: Rowtag displays a combination of characteristics due to his mixed heritage. Rowtag displays the wider muzzle of a dog rather than the thin one of a coyote, giving him the face one might see on a Siberian husky or a malamute. While he also has the thick fur of a dog, his small frame and large ears are evidence of his coyote heritage.
  • Fur: Courtesy of his dog heritage, Rowtag's fur is plush and soft to the touch. His pelt is made up of a curious blend of hairs, the majority being soft and fluffy. Rowtag’s thick undercoat is mainly cream based in color, lightening to almost pure white along his belly, chest, muzzle, and legs. Coarser guard hairs blend from cream to golden as they travel closer to his spine, giving Rowtag’s coat a warmer hue.
  • Facial Features: Rowtag displays the wider muzzle of a dog rather than the thin one of a coyote, giving him the face one might see on a Siberian husky or a malamute. Fine hairs ranging from white to cream cover his muzzle, throat, and eyes, a marking more commonly seen among dogs. His nose is pink in color. Rowtag’s eyes are quite intriguing, as the left is colored an ice blue and the other a warm brown. His ears, straying from his otherwise dog-like appearance, are shaped more similar to those of a coyote.
  • Build and Size:
    • Lupus: Rarely ever seen using this form, Rowtag takes after his coyote heritage in small size. A wiry frame with slight muscle definition ripples under a dense coat of fur, due to the mutt in his heritage. Narrow shoulders, a streamlined body, and smaller paws all indicate a body built for speed rather than endurance
    • Secui: Once again, this form is rarely used. Other than a slight increase in height and muscle mass, this form does not differ terribly from his Lupus form
    • Optime: Rowtag retains a small and wiry frame from his previous forms. Though he has slight muscle definition, Rowtag is definitely on the scrawny side. His hands and feet remain petite, and his shoulders and chest keep at a narrow width. He is rather small and unimposing to look upon

Coloration

  • Fur:
    • His fur, as it travels closer to his back and spine, darkens to a blend of Drover (#FDF7AD), Energy Yellow (#F8DD5C), and Ronchi (#EAB84D)
  • Markings:
    • Ticks of Fire Bush (#E89928) can be seen along the top coat, especially towards his back and extremities
    • A faint, darker stripe of Firey Orange (#B35213) starts at the base of his skull, runs along the spine, and ends at the tail tip
    • His face, muzzle, throat, belly, tail tip, and inside legs are Cream (#FFFDD0), giving way to Citrine White (#FCFBE8)
  • Eyes: His left eye is Cruise (#B1ECE7) and his right eye is Sepia (#613B0F)
  • Optime Hair: Optime hair color
    • Nose and Paw Pads: A curious pattern of Flesh (#FFCBA4) and Wood Smoke (#141415)

Motivations

  • Improvement: Rowtag is desperate to improve himself, whether that is in skillset, relations, or even personality. He has never been satisfied with his image of himself
  • Relationships: Rowtag strives to form meaningful relationships with others, whether that means friendship or romantic. He yearns for someone who can understand him at a personal level, and make him feel good about himself despite his cowardice and flaws. As he does display many introverted tendencies and gets over-stimulated in social gatherings, forming relationships can be difficult for him

Fears

  • Horses: He is intimidated by their sheer size and strength
  • Confrontation: He is not one for a public confrontation, and shies away from such
  • Physical Harm: A coward at heart, is is a grey area whether or not he would put himself in harms way for another
  • Failure: Often his own harshest critic, Rowtag has a low tolerance for any sort of perceived embarrassment or failure, and will have a meltdown if such a thing happens

Biases

  • Packs: Is wary of those from Salsola, Inferni, and Anathema due to what he has heard of them
  • Species: No bias
  • Non-Luperci: Feels pity for those who choose not to take advantage of the Optime form, but doesn't dislike them. He just doesn't understand them
  • Gender: No bias
  • Color: No bias
  • Sexuality: No bias
  • Age: Has a soft spot for children, but apart from that no bias

Sexuality

Rowtag feels attraction towards those of the same sex (male). With that said, Rowtag is a Homosexual. Rowtag is a hopeless romantic, however he lacks the courage to tell his crush his true feelings. He would rather that they approach him. Rowtag has dreams of entering a monogamous relationship with a partner just as dedicated to him as he would be to them. Despite his pessimistic outlook, these dreams of a hopeless romantic, combined with his desire for acceptance, serves to be a rather dangerous combination that can lead to him entering a whirlwind of passion and emotions. This can leave him vulnerable to manipulation or heartbreak.
