Appearance

Basics

Essentials

  • Species: A super wolfy wolf, with wolf like features, from his wolfy face to his wolfy tail and wolfy toes.
  • Fur: His pelt is thick and lustrous with a dense and downy undercoat that is protected by longer, coarser guard hairs. Rough and slightly waxy to the touch, sheds water easily, never lies completely flat creating 'spiky' look.
    • Optime Hair: The majority of his long hair is swept back from a widows peak into a chunky braid that starts at the back of his head and rests between his shoulder blades. The rest of his long hair hangs loose about his shoulders, though is always pushed away from his face. Two long hanks of hair bound with thin leather straps hang from behind his left ear.
  • Facial Features: His facial features are distinctly masculine; his jawline is strong and heavy with slightly longer fur that runs all along the underside. His muzzle is blunt and slightly broader than the average wolfs, though it looks in perfect proportion to the rest of his face, which is also broad. His brow slopes to meet his muzzle with a typical canine stop. He has three scars on the left side of his muzzle, two of which have taken notches from his lip. He also has a scar that bisects his left eyebrow.
  • Build and Size: Russano is large of stature; he is tall and broad. He stands a head over his father and dwarfs his mother and sisters. He is broad of shoulder and chest with a waist that only tapers slightly in to then sweep out again into sturdy hips and well-muscled legs. His thick fur makes him look thicker than he is; he has not an ounce of fat on him and is in fact trim and fit with defined musculature.
  • Humanization: Russano is relatively humanised, he is most often found in Optime form, though will also use Secui and Lupus for more primal purposes. When in Optime will almost always be found wearing Clothes and Accessories.

Personality

Russano is a gentle giant. He is aware of his imposing height and breadth as it has been the subject of his siblings jokes many a time, but he can't fully understand how people could be scared of him. As far as he is aware he is a good guy and that shows through, despite his overall intimidating appearance, coupled with his determined stoic-ness and his somewhat terrifying resting 'bitch-face'.

He comes across as the strong, silent type that silently disapproves while in actuality he would like to join in with silliness and play, but he fears that he would hurt someone. He knows how strong he is, but he's scared that in the moment he would lose control and hurt others, so he restrains himself, which has resulted in his rather sere appearance.

While he would like to engage more with others he is mostly an introverted individual and enjoys time by himself or with one other person. As such he has a passion for animal husbandry and gardening that he inherited from both parents.

Underneath the top layer of gentle giant, stoic stern face and introverted weirdo lies a hidden and constantly burning pit of warriors spirit. This is something that Russano is terrified of; while in the Solbjorg he learned of his families proclivity for madness and fears that eventually his temper will conquer him and the madness will take over. He stamps down his temper anytime it begins to show, unbeknownst to him this is only making it worse and one day he is likely to just snap.

When truly angered he slips into a berserk state that he calls the 'Bloodwrath' for the red tinge that colours his sight when he is in it. When in this state anything is fair game, he can rarely tell the difference between friend and foe. Though when he exits the state he instantly regrets everything and is often incredibly saddened by anything that he has done, wanting nothing more than to leave the area and be alone before coming back later to make amends if possible.
