ClayIn 300-500 words total, tell us your...Character's background (their past and present):
Currently Clay just arrived at the University of Toronto to teach for a couple of months. This isn't something that he wanted to do but his alpha and foster father Jeremy (Jer) insisted and he really didn't want to disappoint him. He found Clay in the bayou after he had been bitten by a mutt, or non pack werewolf and left for dead. When Jer had found him he was living in the Bayou, turning from wolf to human with such frequency he could barely tell which form he was in. Two forms but one person. He is the only child werewolf to have existed and survived, at least documented in the Legacy. The Legacy is the werewolf historical document. The pack has other boys who would become werewolves after puberty. One of his best friends was one of those boy’s, now a man. When he was placed in school he didn't fit in, being a seven year old genius in kindergarten as well as a werewolf. He was kicked out of school for dissecting a guinea pig. He was trying to learn it’s weakness’ and while Jeremy had forbidden him to kill the animal he waited until it died naturally and tried to study it. Character's personality:
Stoic, protective, brilliant and yet ruled by his wolf instincts. His instinct to protect his pack and alpha stronger than all others. Though his mood gets particularly foul in the fall. Unbenounced to him that is because he is supposed to be searching for his mate. Crowds are a problem for him. Most interpret his discomfort of crowds as being dislike of humans though really it is more of a feeling of being a trapped animal. For some reason most people who find out that I am an academic are confused by this but I love to learn and study. Their confusion stems from the fact that I look like a character from Baywatch with an IQ to match.Character's skills/abilities/powers:
An Anthropology researcher who on occasion teaches as a professor at universities to maintain his academic connections which allow him to work from home most of the time. He specializes in Anthropomorphic religions. Also, happens to be a 27 year old werewolf who as the name suggests can turn into a wolf. Also has super strength, heightened senses, and accelerated healing.Any special equipment your character is bringing along? This includes weapons, magic items, etc.:
No special itemsAre you bringing your character to ten_fwd from another game? If you are, which game?:
No, this is the first time I will be playing Clayton Danvers.If you answered yes above, briefly summarize how they were changed by and what challenges they faced in the climate of their previous game(s):
N/AWhy do you want to play this character in Ten Forward, and what do you plan to do with them?
Of all the characters I have ever read or seen I have never been more in tuned with a character. I understand him very well. I've read almost all available canon. Clay would be interesting to put into such a situation and certainly an adequate challenge for Q to give Picard. I am bringing him in from before meeting Elena, his mate, With mod permission I would play him through his canon, bringing him back and forth, preferably with no time passing in his world otherwise he could become unmanageable with worry for his pack as he is the beta and pack enforcer. I expect that initially it will be very difficult for him but once he gets used to it I think he will make a great addition to the enterprise. I would like him to eventually join security or at the very least offer muscle/protection during away missions. He is very loyal to friends and is capable of following rules laid out to him clearly and will respect an alpha's territory and rule as long as they are not threatening his pack's territory or authority over his pack's territory, which consists of North America, circa late 20th/early 21st century.Writing Sample #1:
Clay exits his Porsche Boxster in the campus parking lot. As the front door slams shut, there is a flash of light. His muscles tense. When the light subsides, Clay lowers his arm and stands at the ready for attack. He uses his ears and nose to be aware of his surroundings, smelling and listening for approach as well as signs of his environment. He hears the sounds of glasses clinking, people laughing around him but not next to him, and the smell of food and drink all about. He finds this disconcerting given that he was in a parking lot seconds ago. Already on alert when his eyes clear, his head pivots and rotates around the room, orienting himself to this new place.
And so for the moment standing in the middle of Ten Forward is a man: lean, six foot tall, cropped blond curls, and wearing a sports jacket and jeans. Someone may want to tell him what is going on, though it would be best to approach with care.[OOC: Clay is a werewolf, if your character isn't human then Clay will be able to smell it. Though he can't smell if you are a magic user. He can hear conversations across the room. Thank you.]Writing Sample #2: Example Thread
