Profile of Dirge: Details
Appearance
[Image: uEmTQBI.png]
Like his ancestors and relatives, Dirge bears signs of his Ostrega lineage in his large physique and gold eyes. He is tall and perpetually lean, dressed in earthy colors with agouti-patterning that darken hairs scattered along his brow, shoulders, spine, tail and tail-tip. These colors drape down along his sides like a saddle, meeting the lighter and sandier hues of his underside. He is built like a hunter—full of endurance and speed but not entirely lacking in strength either—and cants toward seeming rough along the edges, much like the wilds he was borne from.

His fur is coarse but plush enough to be soft, though its overall thickness varies by season—thicker in winter, thinner in summer—and some pains are taken to keep it orderly. Generally Dirge carries the scents of the wilderness, of towering pines and damp earth; occassionally tinges of sea salt are present as well. He carries himself confidently, a dominant creature that is surprisingly, if not confusingly relaxed bordering nonchalant. Often he has a complete expression of neutrality. Company dictates his body language greatly and it isn't too far outside the realm of perception to suggest he is intentionally guarded.

Personality
Sharp-witted and silver tongued he boasts a showman's bravado in flowery wordplay, knavishly playing a lascivious lead to make ends meet; the other side of this proverbial hidden coin displays the occasional brooding cynicism with a proclivity to anticipate the worst in others. In spite of the latter and former he is surprisingly genuine, his arrogance not unfounded in what promises he makes and keeps, and to close acquaintences and siblings he is a defacto protector and confidant. With wanderlust deep in his veins, he is also not one to remain in any place for too long, and thus makes the company he ultimately keeps a choosy affair.

His voice is smooth like honey but carries gravelly tones and it is rare that it is anything but confident. Dirge tends to be direct as an individual, often formal in his choice of words and somewhat tactful, as well as verbose where he needs to be. At times, he is a total ham where it's applicable and generally does not waste time in trying to charm those he believes he has a fair chance of tipping things in his favor.

Dirge considers himself a realist through and through, though it is also fair to say he errs on the side of being pessimistic too. He is a waivering ambivert as his personality prompts such; he is comfortable in the company of others to the point of seeking it out, though he has stints where he opts to be entirely on his own. He is more likely to pursue the company of those he likes or has some manner of business with as opposed to strangers—generally the latter has to do the approaching unless something interests him.

Keen on retaining his independence, Dirge will remain uninvolved with anything long term. Or so he thinks, as he is oft inclined to seek company during colder months because the threat of either perishing to the elements or starving to death do not quite appeal to him. As such, he can end up the most nonchalant participant in any number of things, unless of course it's time to act. And of course as he aims to be a charmer, it is of little surprise he leans towards being an otherwise promiscuous sort where it suits him.
Biography
The product of an unapproved pairing, Dirge is the only son born to Kelso Ostrega and Kasaka Winterheart. He was born alongside of four sisters — Grey, Lestra, Nyx, & Saor. From the moment of their birth, Dirge's life has been unpleasant. Though loved and nurtured by the majority in his natal pack, the open dislike and scathing treatment by his grandfather and alpha of the pack, Cross, has left a permanent mark on his psyche. Somewhere in the days before his second birthday, Dirge, no longer content to continually fight to keep his place within his natal pack, found himself ousted and subsequently free. Having set his sights on finding the next great thing out there, he set off only to have two of his sisters in tow.
