Sebastien 'Bun' Stone is an optimistic, kind-hearted hippie with sea-salt in his hair. The son of a former pirate and a runaway from courtly trappings he was raised in the remnants of a farm in The Blacklands.

He was an energetic and sweet pup who lived an average life, albeit lonely. When he was old enough to take care of himself, and with his parent’s encouragement, he left for Freetown.

Along the way he encounters Juniper Peace and travels with them for several months. Bastien is greatly inspired by their non-judgemental and care-free way of life, and develops various interests and expertise. The man gained an appreciation for the pack's Buddhist influences, ability to commune with creatures and experiences with hallucinogenics.

Upon reaching Portland, he apprenticed underneath a trader called Mama Ava, and offered his creative services as an artist of the flesh; tattooing, piercing, dyeing, etc. Alongside the older woman, he picked up valuable skills in trade and multiple methods of body modification as well as a greater appreciation of Ava’s Voodoo beliefs.

During this time of personal growth, Bastien encountered a lost soul who he develops feelings for. Their relationship is short-lived however, after his partner is left shaken in the aftermath of the Red Star's fall. He struggled with his personal grief at losing his beloved mentor and his attempts at consoling his mate, and reluctantly breaks things off.

Heart-broken, he returned home and spent many months soul searching. Unexpected visitors with ties to the past pay a visit one day, which lead him toward 'Souls and the promise of a new life.

1.  Appearance

1.1  Essentials

Basics

Sebastien most resembles a landrace creature, with the lean and compact build of his hound heritage. He takes after his father's predominantly Lurcher features, with an unusual frame that closely resembles a llama; with the angular set of his head, slender muzzle, bobbed tail, long neck and flowing, dropped ears.

The male boasts a supple figure in all forms; suited for agility and running. Whilst the groomed, medium-length coat of his mixed heritage aids him in warmer seasons, the male struggles to retain warmth in winter without the addition of layers of clothing.

His outward appearance is soft, with eyes often set into the far distance or with a mischievous glint to their depths which is at odds with the way he styles himself. Piercings adorn both ears and his left brow, chains dangle from his neck, wrists and hips as he moves, leather gathers at his wrists and tattoos adorn his body. A clam shell is located on his upper torso, and a nautical star upon his inner left wrist. Bastien inherited Garreth's messy, windswept hair which he has a frequency to style into thick, voluminous spikes or dye into bright pastel shades.

Interaction

  • Speech: Loud, casual and often fast-paced. The pitch of his voice sits somewhere in-between a youths' and a mans'. He has a particular way of speaking that betrays his English parent's influence.
  • Scent: Sea salt, birds, dye, lavender and herbs.
  • Quirks, Gestures, Etc.: Sebastien is restless and often fidgets when forced to remain still for too long. When relaxed and lost in a daydream, you might see the man nod his head and dance as though listening to a song no-one else can hear.

2.  Personality

  • Loving, expressive and indulgent

Sebastien has a heart of gold, and endeavours to see the best in others. He is animated and optimistic, but deep down is hiding his own inner battles. Often goes out of his way to help those in need - his kindness and warmth may sometimes be overbearing, but he believes that people who are special to him deserve to be looked after. A believer in second or possibly third chances, the boy holds onto the idea that everyone deserves to feel loved and appreciated.

  • Naive, restless and enthusiastic

Possibly due to his fairly sheltered upbringing, he is open, trusting and generous. Sebastien will smile, cheer you on and comfort you without expecting anything in return; the concept of doing something in return for payment or favour is alien to him. The boy finds it difficult to believe there may be those who want to cause harm or suffering.

  • Energetic, bold and spontaneous

Sebastien is a darling, whose love for life is overflowing. He will call you out for being grumpy or moodiness and attempt to cheer his friends up - whether his antics work or not is another matter. He can find it difficult to say 'no' when his peers ask something of him, and experiences feelings of guilt when things go wrong within his friend's personal lives. He finds it easy to go with the flow of more confident individuals. It has been said his mind works quicker than his mouth, as Bastien talks quickly and often stumbles over his words - he has often been reminded to slow down so that he can be better understood.

  • Tactile

Sebastien learned early on that he learns best through touch and working with his hands - whether this was by etching his first drawings with whatever he could scavenge, or crafting small models by clay, he enjoyed the sensation. Touch is an important aspect to him - whilst he is still learning what is appropriate and what is not in this area, he likes the feeling of being held close and listening to another's heartbeat. Whilst Sebastien doesn't generally hug others at random, he may tense when touched by a stranger. He is most likely to offer physical comfort to a canine who looks or seems upset, and is more open to touches from his family and friends.

  • Shy, unfulfilled and weak-willed

Like the oceans his sire drifted upon, there is a dark undercurrent beneath the placid waters of the boy's heart. Shy, yet overflowing with the desire to be amongst others and to please them - yet Sebastien lacks the confidence in himself to seek out those who would nurture and cherish him. He often falls into unsatisfactory and sometimes abusive relationships with his peers, and coupled with his reticence to be alone he is quickly moulded by those he spends time with. Poor decisions and risky behaviour were often the result. Bastien uses his sense of humour and optimism as a barrier against those things he is unable to change or understand.

Biases

  • Non-Luperci: Loves his adopted brother, Sabre, who happens to be one. Does not understand the prejudice against those who are different and is likely to disagree with those who hold bigotry towards non-Luperci.
  • Gender: Thinks both genders have something unique to bring to the world.
  • Color: Bastien appreciates all shapes, sizes and colours and would aspire to seek out as varied a clientele for his work.
  • Sexuality: Sees value in all forms of expression, so long as it is safe and consensual.
  • Age: Both young and old should be valued. Children can learn much from the wisdom of their elders, and vice versa.

Sexuality

Bun is strictly attracted to men; he has no distinct "type" as of yet. He is a romantic with a big heart, which means he is likely to form deep attachments to others throughout his life. He has a tendency to use pet names when speaking to someone he likes, such as 'honey', 'sweetie', 'darling' etc. Despite his apparent openness for flirtatious words and touch, it is likely any sign of reciprocation would leave him self-conscious. In addition, if a committed relationship was unattainable, he would consider polyamory as an alternative. Considers giving and receiving affection as crucial in his relationships with others.

Spirituality

  • Polytheistic, with animist beliefs

His theology is a potpourri of the different faiths he has encountered through his life. He was brought up on Garreth's stories and superstitious beliefs, and holds them dear. These have been mixed with his former mentor's blend of New Orleans Voodoo. He addresses his prayers to a God and Goddess, who go by many names and forms.

Substances

He was introduced to alcohol at an early age, as something to be shared and enjoyed with a family meal. As an adult, he typically only uses it as part of rituals. Dabbled with soft drugs as an impressionable youth, but is unlikely to try them again.

3.1  Family

3.2  Relationships

Key Relationships

  • Garreth Stone is his Dada, a story-weaver and an inspirational figure. Many of Bun's beliefs can be attributed to Garreth who maintained some superstitions from his piratical days.
  • Madeline Dubois is his Ma, a strong-willed woman that comforted him whenever he ran into trouble and steered him out of dangerous waters when his attempts at making friends became too dangerous.

Positive Relationships

  • Eliza Cormier was the first Krokaran he met, and the one to welcome him to his new home.
  • Oscar Morelli is the son of his pack's leader and a fun canine to be around. Oscar laughs at his awful puns and they play tricks on each other - Bun enjoys the youth's laid-back demeanour.
  • Elias Blueridge is a cute coydog that Bun thinks needs to believe in himself more.
  • Till Van Ulrich Lykoi he met through Garreth's trade arrangements. The man visited often, and spoiled him with affection and treats as a child. He enjoyed the Lykoi's stories about the world beyond his home; he made Till promise to tell him a new story when they next saw each other.
  • Coaxoch is his childhood friend and Till's son. A mysterious boy that he eagerly bonded with, the two used to pretend to be brothers and were the heroes of their own imaginary world. They drifted apart in their adolescence, and Bun isn't sure why.
