1.  Pre-Bleeding Souls History

1.1  Early Life

Twist was born on the northeastern shore of Lake Michigan in a small fishing and merchant community. His mother was a ship captain who operated a small cog which carried passengers and goods up and down the coast, his father a worker on a fishing ship. His sibling, Rime, went to live with their father after being weaned, while Twist remained with his mother. He was a quiet child, serious and hardworking, learning to help his mother run the ship once he was able to shift. While he and his mother loved each other, her boisterous and gregarious personality was at odds with his own more quiet and serious personality, so by the time he was a year old, the youth struck out on his own.

Travelling the waterways to the northeast along the shore of Michigan, southeast across Lake Huron, down St. Claire river to Lake Erie, up Niagara River to Lake Ontario, up the St. Lawrence river, and out into the St. Lawrence gulf before eventually landing in the 'Souls territories.

Still seeking.

3.  Personality

3.1  Initially

Quiet with strangers, often speaking slowly and using few words, he sometimes comes off as a little stupid. Though if the topic of conversation drifts towards a subject he knows about or is interested in, he can become much more talkative, revealing a sort of street-smart wisdom, and a quicker tongue. Not much for fancy words or wordiness in general, even when speaking more animatedly, he finds those who do tend towards unnecessary eloquence to be obnoxious. This isn't to say that Twist isn't a thinker, he's very observant and introspective, simply not the sort to share his opinion unless asked or he feels there's a very good reason to do so.

While religion isn't something that often crosses Twist's mind, he's deeply superstitious and often involves himself in rituals of his own making that have significance sometimes only to himself.

Twist regards others in a very black and white way, you're either one of 'his people' or a stranger. While happy enough to make friends, he doesn't go out of his way to do so. Neither cruel, nor unusually helpful, if Twist decides to help another, it's always without thought of repayment, at least to himself. Gratuitous gestures of repayment embarrass the coyote hybrid, much as any overly showy emotion does.

5.  Abilities, talents and skills

  • Experienced in river and lake navigation.
  • Experienced with skiffs, wheelboats, and single sail ships.

5.1  Strengths

  • Acute Weather Sense - Twist has grown up reading the weather as life or death can hinge on it. He is extremely sensitive to weather conditions, something he both learned from his mother and partially inherited from her, hence their surname: Dogvane.

5.2  Weaknesses

  • Poor Eyesight - Twist's eyes are incredibly sensitive to light, forcing him to wear tinted glass goggles or snow goggles to avoid piercing headaches and eye pain.
  • Sea Legs - Spending so much time aboard ships means that Twist is often a little unstable on land for hours after standing on terra firma. It's more of an annoyance than anything else though.
  • Weakness3

6.  Appearance

Twist, at first glance, appears entirely coyote in bone structure and size. Even in Optime form he is a lean, almost gaunt figure with a narrow, hungry face and a gangly, long-limbed body. In this form he barely reaches 5'5" with just a bit more for the length of his broad, triangular ears. A mottled pelt covers his whole body, a patchwork mixture of blacks, grays, reddish duns, and whites which give him an almost moth eaten look in some places. A broad, uneven swath of white crosses his otherwise dark face, rendering both eyes a ghostly blue. His tail is more thickly plumed than one might expect of a coyote, and kinked so that it twists upward awkwardly. In all forms his feet are small, almost dainty, tipped with claws which are either black or white, depending on the coloration of the toe in question.

His nose is a deep shade of black, shining, and pierced through the septum with a semicircle of copper. One ear is likewise pierced with a heavy ring that pulls it a little lopsided. A squinting scowl usually graces his face, not so much a reflection of his personality but more because his eyes are sensitive, expression only relaxing when he's wearing the tinted goggles he favors, though even then his angular features give him a severe look that promises only to get moreso with age. The hair on his head seems always to appear as if he's just stepped out of a strong gale, cut inexpertly so that it's a constant mane around his head, just as mottled as the rest of him.

6.1  Luperci Forms

Twist greatly prefers Optime form, though he prefers to travel over land in lupus form.
