WHO AM I?
[Overview] Intelligent, quick thinking, sarcastic, Varian is an affable but oftentimes sarcastic young wolf, who's brain oftentimes outruns his mouth and gets him into trouble more often than not. He's friendly and very much a people pleaser, but has a short fuse for bullshit, and can become aggravated by things he deems useless or stupid very quickly. It's not terribly hard to annoy him, even with his friendly demeanor, and he lacks the social cues necessary to NOT tell you to shut up if he thinks you should just be quiet.
He can sometimes be a touch arrogant, especially when it comes to his skills as an alchemist, and he loves nothing more than to prattle on about whatever his latest concoction or invention happens to be. He's a quick thinker, a problem solver, and is usually the first to suggest a solution, even if said solution seems insane to normal animals.
He has a penchant for theatrics as well, often gesturing wildly with dramatic sweeps and loquacious vocabulary, especially when he's explaining his latest creations to someone.
He has a vein of compassion and generosity in him as well, often going above and beyond to help when he sees someone who needs it. He's a lot more kind and empathetic than his sometimes crass and biting commentary might lead some to believe.
But under the good humor and friendliness is a wolf that holds a grudge, a wolf who doesn't forgive or trust easily. Once you're in his inner circle, he's perfectly pleasant to be around for the most part, but he often greets strangers with suspicion, and once you wrong him, he rarely forgives. [Phobias] Failure, spiders, large groups [Fatal Flaws] Unstable, quick to anger and easily becomes blinded by that Stubborn, usually wont admit to needing help until it's detrimental to his health
[Pre-Ebon History] Varian was a low born wolf, nothing more than a slave for the royals of the kingdom he served. The royals were an unkind sort, and he was more used to being kicked and spat on than any creature should be, he was the whipping boy and the scapegoat when someone needed a body to blame. He wasn't always bitter, but the blackness blossomed and infected his heart the longer he spent suffering the abuse.
What the family didn't know, was that the wolf was far more intelligent than they ever gave him credit for, a talented alchemist, and his skills would be the catalyst to the revenge he desperately sought. The plan was insidious and hateful, slowly he would poison them, one by one, until there wasn't a single scrap of blood left in their lineage.
He started from the bottom, the members of the family who couldn't possibly fight back, carrying out the wretched task of poisoning the offspring or the prince and princess, before he turned his eyes on them, and then the king and queen. Six bodies, six ghosts, he thought he was too cold to care, too broken and hateful, too black-hearted to feel remorse for what he'd done. But the guilt would consume his entire soul.
More and more the ghosts seemed to haunt his mind, macabre specters that screamed and accused and haunted him, he couldn't sleep, food turned sour in his mouth, he was a monster and became consumed with hatred for himself and the wretched crimes he committed.
So consumed did he become that he found himself unable to cope, and in his desperation to atone and silence the ghosts, he downed his own poison, the same poison he used to commit his awful crime. His death was violent and unpleasant, he left the world seizing and screaming, it was what he deserved.
He came to with a gasp, realizing that he was alive, but different. He was changed, and it was with horror he realized he'd been given a second chance that he never deserved. He's still deeply haunted by the ghosts, they plague him as horrific hallucinations and loud voices, making him seem mad to those he encounters for too long.
