Notable Characteristics
* Lower Cuspids are more pronounced and protruding up and over the muzzle (near 3" long)

Personality:
Known for being painfully asocial, Balto makes no qualms about who he is or how he behaves. Overly untrusting and slow to actually extend such things to others, he is known to be very aggressively vocal. Cussing and dropping F* bombs in common conversation, it may be assumed he is very unrefined and rough.

Not known to warm up easily, he does speak without overly thinking about his commentary. Uncaring if he offends or not.

While it may be assumed he is very unenthusiastic, cold, and generally aloof; Balto is quite passionate about what matters. Family is highly important to him and those he does share a bond with are often spared his bitter attitude.

As a werewolf, he can be overly sensitive to certain smells. Or he is known to become very frenzy like in the right atmosphere, unreasonable and feral.

Uniquely he can be incredibly morose. Known to take things rather personally and internalize it, he holds grudges quite liberally. Although getting him to talk about these issues will prove difficult as he is prone to internalizing anything that is emotional based. It is often assumed he is pretty brutish in intellect when really he is quite clever. At times he can control his anger and speak with a level of refinement.

Outwardly he does not enjoy being touched or his space invaded against his choice, though with those he builds a connection with; he will allow them to come closer. Only a love interest will be granted the leisure to come into his personal space freely. In turn he does respond and will be affectionate.

Background:

As the younger sibling, Bartholomew and Amelia have been raised in the tender care of their grandmother since the ages of four and six. The children were removed from the homestead due to neglect and placed with their mother’s mother for the hope that she might be able to at least bring back some semblance of life into their young lives. Though it is loudly hinted that both children had suffered abusive trauma, Amelia proves to be the stronger of the pair in the ways of dealing with the former anguish. The younger brother proved to be effected even as he aged. Commonly getting into trouble and being reprimanded.

This behaviour never did come out of him, though it was noted that he was incredibly protective of his elder sister and eventually coming to accept his grandmother as his guardian. Somewhat settling and lessening how often he got into trouble at least at school.

Although perhaps karma had a way of returning the favor for his ill behavior. **Around twelve or thirteen is when Balto became infected with lycanthropy. Exhibiting signs of a vicious illness at first, it was passed off as a bad flu. Quarantining him off and receiving the standard practice for any flu, he would eventually betray the fate of himself under the first full moon. And having to reveal the insanity of it to Amelia less he be caught.**

He has lived with the condition decently well, only one other discovering his fate and sworn to secrecy; that of a familiar friend, Easton Ashingden. Balto’s closest friend.

**Around sixteen would be his first encounter with a organization called Aurora Grove Research, those who hunt and investigate the supernatural occurrences. And he found himself being a target of their interest. Though it appeared they found nothing of interesting with him – so it seems – Balto learnt that there were many hunters in the world that seek to either capture supernatural creatures such as himself for experimental purposes or to eradicate them completely. It depends on the group that comes looking.

These happenstances are part of the reason he is as confrontational as he is. Leery of those around him, Balto tries desperately not to reveal himself to anyone. Though is still very prone to falling victim to the primordial response of a feral beast during the full moon; he is not infectious until these nights – and only capable of infecting anyone in his werewolf body – he is completely safe as a human.

▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔
Synopsis
Appearance / History / Personality

________________



That of a cruor demon, he is considerably on the smaller side of sizing. Although in stature to that of a human, Dante proves to be a bit imposing. Neatly coming in at an even six foot eleven, his horns tend to add a little bit extra height due to their curl. His body is lithe with muscle weighing around two hundred and ten pounds. This tends to fluctuate depending on the season but it's never more than a ten or so pounds one way or the other.

In a group of six; form an ebony crown of horns on either side of his head. Framed in a white mane that is only shaved down near the horns. Reasoning is less for styling purposes and more for the sake of his own care. Letting the skin breathe freely. Typically the hair falls to its right more so than the left. The tips of the horns turn a lighter purple suggesting the growth points are actually a dark umbra style violet rather than black. They typically finished growing but they do tend to molt in the spring. He has been known to lose a horn or two before, while their growth rate is slower than when it was as a boy, they usually fill in within eight months.

Complexion is a fine bronze only interrupted along his shoulder blades to elbow and inwards towards chest with runic markings. They are a few tones darker than the rest of his skin, trailing around in mimicked tattoos. When truthfully they are part of his biology. Every cruor demon develops their own unique markings that can sometimes range from head to toe, or just in one place.

From eyes run down to cheek bones the black of ink. Dripping and thin veins are noticeable under the lower eyelid. Each sclera is a deep pitch of black whilst iris and limbus are a deep gold with rings of red. Most of this is lessened due to the faint natural glow of tapetum lucidum. This allows Dante keen eyesight during day or night. Perfect for hunting. Notable curiosity is his irises will turn a ashen gray if he is ready to sleep or is waking up. Akin to a candle flame being lit, the will brighten to their golden red hue as he awakens.

Both sets of first and second premolars are oversized. Largely so that they appear to be tusk like, rolling over bottom lip. The longest one measures around three and a half inches long -some of it hides in the upper lip unseen - while the smaller one is about an inch and a half. The corners of his mouth are slightly indented. This may be overlooked, but the demon's mouth is far larger than it appears. Opening upon full exposure, Dante's jaw can unhinge and widen to the width of seven fingers. Exposing the jutting molars and tearing teeth inside. The muscles within his face are rather extensive. Able to keep the cheek muscles taunt and closed, he rarely opens his mouth to full width.Tongue alone is also uniquely inhuman. Forked and impossibly long, it may be reminiscent of serpent's tongue, and a dark red almost purple hue to it.

More notable attributes to Dante are the two softer horns or spines some may call them - that rupture from his shoulder blades and semi circle over clavicle to chest. - these are durable and movable. Perhaps the other piece upon him is the devil's spade tail. Measuring around six feet itself, it is incredibly mobile and flexible. Some might call it an extra appendage with its freedom of movement. Incredibly strong and hard, its skin is akin to hardened leather. Not quite scales, but close.

His body structure over all is humanoid styling, to present a sense of familiarity to the mundane races. Although he personally is not human, Dante has many of the same emotions and can appeal easier to the lesser races.


Personality

Contrary to his demon heritage, Dante is overall accommodating and gentle. He isn't one to pass judgment too quickly preferring to have all the information and facts before making any sort of decision on a person. Even with that said; he is quick to forgive and make amends. Rarely holding grudges.

Possessing a lyrical timbre, the demon is typically soft spoken. He likes to think about his responses in deep conversation thoroughly and can often take a lot of time to reply to someone. Perhaps with this critical thinking, he can come off stoic and aloof. Although he is not immune to bouts of unexplained playfulness and excitement.

He is one to typically question something if he either does not understand or does not agree with a situation. This can lead him into trouble with higher ranking demons or anyone which typically earns him large disfavor. Dante will follow commands but the need to understand why is hyper critical. There is a large difference between blindly following and comprehending the reasoning for something.



History

Heralding from that of a tropical oasis called that of Auvrae; demons have been making the island that of their home from the day the crust birthed forth the first flame born. Where the lands were fertile and the jungles were dense with beasts of large proportions. Rich with palms and fern foliage, there are vast swamps and jungles that cradle the city of Ariosa. Thick walls hold around three of the four sides, leaving the last exposed to the expansive aquamarine ocean.

The city and the demons themselves do not exist under a king but rather than of a Baron –though honestly he is treated like a king- their lands are peaceful. A metropolis of new inventions, they have begun to use copper and steam for some of their everyday uses. Recently the use of piping heated water through pipes to have bathrooms within homes.

There is a hierarchy of citizen classes but truly it doesn’t venture past second class; in the case of Dante he tends to be a unique case. He is the bastard son of Tharulin Harte, Baron of Ariosa. His father and his mother were the standard lovesick sort of fools. Married and raising that of his first son, Tharulin took to Paris as a mistress. Often fooling around behind his baroness’ back until it spawned that of a pregnancy. Thus bringing Dante into the mix.

Rather than removing the child by the means of whatever she deemed necessary, Paris reared Dante, by her own values. Rather single handedly she raised him with the awareness of the world through a common man’s eye. Valuing the wealth of knowledge and education over the need to rule. She ingrained in her son the love of learning, often doting on him with books – it is very known that Dante favors his mother when it comes to parents – Paris brought life and a new wonder to the young demon. Often spurring on his antics for a thirsty mind; till he goes too far and finds himself in trouble. Commonly having to explain his behaviours with profuse apologizing and shaking fingers at the boy.

Although Dante doesn't really make qualms with it, he has come to know that his father's wife at the time did not take kindly to his existence. Often cutting off times where Dante would have been able to create proper bonds with his father.

For some time, Paris kept her son private. Rarely making mention of the Baron, doing what she could to raise her son with whatever means she could. There are times Dante can recall laying in front of the small fire of the home covered up in blankets as his mother went without. Born of his father did not mean, Paris took favors from the Baron. She did not accept compensation as a means of amends. She made it clear that Tharulin would have something to do with his son or nothing at all. There was no paying her to behave. There were many years the two of them lived on the line of poverty because of this. Where Dante acknowledges that his mother made struggles for them both when there could have been a very simple end to it all. Trying to teach that of her son the means of life and the means of wealth were two separate things.

It only came to public knowledge of their state of living when someone else commented to the Baron. How the one he brought forth out of wedlock with another was being forced to live in squander due to the behavior of himself and the refusal of the baroness to allow the younger to be present. Such a thing seemed to resonate with the Baron, striking up means that the mistress of his own ill tidings would receive better and his son would be treated better.

It wasn’t until Dante was in his teens that he started to be instructed with matters involving state, when his father began to make means to interact with the boy. Standing alongside Marik, he was taught the use of politics, trade agreements, fighting and his own prowess as a curor demon. Taking to learning some magic as well though he isn’t skilled with fire or arcane, he can use it.

It became clear that he favored languages and old wonders, often spending hours honing over ancient dialect scrolls and teaching himself how to read numerous languages.
