Shifters: Spoiler Name: Wallace Callahand aka Wally Age: 22 Appearance: Wally looks like your average shifter. You know tall, yellow eyes and what not. He's white and has brown hair that falls in front of his face. He is normally dressed in casual clothing the kind humans wear but enjoys being dressed for nicely most of the time. He's actually quite good looking...he has a firm face and his eyes have a tendency to shine when he's happy. His smile practically lights up a room and he's built with a good deal of slender muscle. Appearance Wolf: I can't shape shift! I'm a human dammit! (Lol you shall find out....he doesn't like to talk about it) Rank: Rouge (For good reason) Short Biography: Wally had a bit of a complicated childhood. After some unfortunate events as a baby he ended up in the arms of a loving elderly couple. One problem he was a shifter but the couple didn't care....and they raised him as their own. In short he is a shifter brought up by humans. Wally considers himself a human and you'd be wise not to try and argue with him about it. In general Wally is really an all round friendly, sweet and nice guy.....that is trying to live a nice life as a human. But one little problem despite being raised a human he still has the violent instincts of a shifter. Which means he has a tendency to be quick to violence and breaking things...namely people. The anger problem arises a lot of different ways but the biggest way to make him go berserk is call him a monster or keep calling him something other than human. To be fair....he can't control when he goes into a violent rage. His body sort of just goes off animal like instinct. He's never killed anyone but he used to get in literally hundreds of fights as a kid. For one he was a shifter and two his anger. So he never really had any friends and since he's human D) he want's nothing to do with shifters. So he's sort of lacking with social skills and really just wants some friends. Also when he is angry...its to the extreme. I mean lots of screaming, attacking and throwing things. The guy goes completely ape for a period of time even might go wolf and then just calms down like nothing happened. He will of course always apologize for his outburst. Tool/Weapon: His fists. Wally is quite powerful in the art of physical combat to a very high point. But it works most well when's angry when the adrenaline's going the guy hit's like a Juggernaut. Other: Doesn't hit women/Beats up guys that hit women/He enjoys living a nice human life/Does not like being pissed off/ and most of all just wants to be a good person. * * * Name: Mandolin Silver Paw Age: Whatever young adult is for a shifter Appearance (When human): Tall with Silver Hair and eyes.
