The Body


Height: 5'11
Body Type: Yes
Hair Color: Brown-black
Eye Color: Yellow-brown

Appearance:
More genetics than hard work, Finn is strong. Body well muscled and strong, edges sharpened by his Ebon-grey rather than eaten by it. Hair dark and cut short, the beginning hints of grey marring the front. Scars like water splashes across his body. Droplets. Rivulets. Testament to a hard lived life.

Eyes a dark, fierce yellow that is more brown toward the centers. The same color as when he shifts. Body lean rather than bulky. Fur sleek in shades of grey and hints of brown. Dappled, almost, and a little mangy looking, with oversized paws and a lolling tongue. Almost comic eyebrows above his eyes made by dark slashes of fur.


The Mind


Craft Strengths: 15/15pts +3 Shifter Pts
Edge Walking
Telekinetic Manipulation
Telekinetic Hold
Swift Shifter
Craft Weaknesses: Shield craft.

Personality:
Finn has secrets. They make him smile and sweat in his sleep. Sometimes he forgets he isn't meant to hunt men like others hunt boars. He laughs a lot, to remind himself that this is family. Real family. Their secrets are shared secrets.

While his control of his heart and smile are less than pristine, Finn's temper is another matter. He holds tight to his control, even when his eyes flash at movement and his power rises up in hackles to react. Using sarcasm instead of violence. He has already lost a mother. He would rather not lose a whole pack over a bit of back biting.

He serves without conforming. Mocking while bending his back to a task. He has no title. No job. He lives on the charity of the pack and his own hunting. Does what is asked, whatever is asked, and makes jokes of it while he is at it. But he craves the closeness. Sharing a house with whoever is in between places. Young men before the settle, women between lovers. The elderly. The annoyed.

People. So long as they are safe and kind to what is most precious to him. Fierce little daughter, still shy of her first moontime. Serious little priestess always admonishing his laughter.


The Backstory


Family:
  • Annaleigh | Daughter | Green Birthright Black Widow Priestess

History:
Kill! Hush. Kill! Hush.

Mostly Finn tries not to remember his youth. Bound to an island, forced to conform to fierceness. Raised to be a killer by his father, fretted over by his mother. Hayllian blood, she explained as she did not age, staying a young woman all through his childhood, face the same smooth, sweet face he'd been born to, while his father grew lines of worry and earned a scar across his cheek.

Wolf heritage, she whispered in his ear at night when they cuddled for stories. A secret people. A secret shape. He'd find it when she took him for his Birthright. But she was not there at the temple, father making her stay home. This was for men. For a boy about to become a son. His first true test, to pass, or fail, the difference between life and death.

Sapphire sealing his fate. They would not feed him to the sea, but they would feed the world to him. Intense training in murder. Kill! Hush. Not a whisper as she took him deep into the twisting trees for his first shift. He still remembers the pain of that shift. Bone breaking, blood searing pain. He dreams about it sometimes. A pain to eclipse all others.

He aged slow like she did. Father old before he was half way to manhood. He and his mother passed on into the care of younger males of the family, though his mother refused all other husbands. She had rights, as a widow. As much a free woman as any dark jeweled witch born there. She had rights, and stood staunch behind them.

He could have been a greater hunter if he could have been himself. Felt the urge there under his skin, to be swift on four legs across the jungle floor. Instead he was a bitter hunter, lazy because he could not be better. A raider when they thought he was ready, being trained by a cousin born decades after he had been. Taken, finally, to the mainland, to learn what it felt like to kill men. To kill women.

Scenting the air for a hint of others like himself.

Kill! Hush.

Non believer. But he pretended, just as he pretended to be a man. Mother pleading so he did not face the lash or worse. Some might be jealous. Some might be suspicious. Worse when he made his Offering and walked away with the Ebon-grey. A true son of Paon. Kill! Hush!

They sent him with the others to defend Witch. Surely he could help protect her. To help protect them all. Sent to save a world he didn't know or understand. To defend believes he did not believe in. Mother finally aging when he kissed her good bye. Begged to be careful as she had begged him to be quiet.

He was neither. She was filth. Glory to Witch, they cried, while seething with hate for queens. He never understood it. So when it came time to really fight for it, he didn't. He quit the battlefield, turning his back on his fellow warriors. On Witch. On the people who fought against her too. The wolf seeing him quick away once eyes were averted.

Easy to join the flood of bodies pressing through dark gates as the world trembled and tore. His barriers plucked at. Called too. A leash trying to strangle him, but he'd never been taught to heed the call, always to deny it. They had chosen poorly when they had sent men bred to hate to defend something meant to be loved.

Found himself trapped. Hard barriers stopping him. Shields he could not break or even mimic. Caught in a place they called Deal al Mon. Among children of the wood. And woods they had. Trees taller and straighter than those of home. And here wolves howled. Running swift on four legs, only to change and wrap two around him. Eager for what he'd been missing, he stopped trying the shields and stayed.

Changed his name. Made a daughter. Made a life. Submitting, finally, to the pack.
