    ──── former  stray brought to the marsh colony in his youth,  and future riverclan warrior.
    ──── bisexual with a rather strong male preference.  single,  and won't act on his crushes.

    ──── a chocolate tabby with ( stylized ) low white and intense lime eyes. lean and lanky,  with whiplike musculature and a long, quick stride. hound's notable features include his impressive height, the long scar across the left side of his face from nose to jaw, his very deep, dense fur, and the confident manner with which he conducts himself.

    Tall and proud, his dark tabby fur smattered with scars abound, Hound carries with him the athletic build of a warrior and the dextrous movements of one prepared to use it. The first impression of him hides all things gentle– shadowed gaze, a watchful, unimpressed twist to his mouth. Sour apple eyes, a heady mix of shaded oak leaves and fresh-grass green, flit about the world as if he might swallow it up and taste its intentions; he bares his well-worn fangs in angry disdain for everything he sees. His unrelenting motion and tense shoulders betray a wariness even in moments of apparent relaxation. Whatever he sees is subject to an immediate reprisal, should anything demand it.

    Restlessness drives the hunter, and he is ever compelled to chase the future as a predator might chase its prey.

    It is only once he’s relaxed some that Hound’s true nature is revealed– his sour eyes soften and his mouth curls up to a lopsided smile. When he speaks, it’s with a rough Irish lilt and plenty of cursing. Only once he’s fully relaxed can your eyes take in the arching scar across the left side of his face, or the prominent teeth marks buried beneath the strands of his star fragment bracelet. The soft curling of his fur, the mirth that he carries in the crinkles around his eyes. Though he is certainly not made of softness, there remain parts of him that remember when he was.

    In all that Hound does, there is intensity. His heart does not come in fractions– should he love or despise, it will be done with no half-measures. His loyalty, once earned, is a force to shatter mountains. He would ask nothing more, and give nothing less. It seems that his honesty wars with his wariness; though this may be the truth of him, so too is his intractability. He is stubborn, made of harsh words and tense body language. So little of him is palatable. He knows that. So does most everyone around him. Some understand, but far more have no desire to.

    There's no true excuse for the harshness of his demeanor. To many, he is unyielding and cold. Without many friends or any lover, he is a lonely soul. It is difficult to know him, this is true, and any ability is hindered by his own unwillingness to allow it. Intractability is safety. Those who find themselves insulted by his barbed tongue or wily humor are not those that will last long anyway. Better to show them the worst of him now, while they've no expectation of better. The critical glances are worth the protection, burn him as they might.

    To see him truly at rest, one must look past the guarded strength and well-earned wariness. There might not be a creature more committed to the safety of those closest to him than Hound. Seated at rest with companions, his shoulder is pressed to the young cat's beside him as he cajoles him to song. He tips his head to the dark sky and howls out the verse like a dog to the moon, feral and searching for home. At the side of a bloodied nest he frets as a kitten might, tearing apart the strands of a moss ball to busy his bloodied claws. He glares like a librarian when someone bumps through the entryway, and snarls with the rough voice of a stray mutt when their chastened apology stirs the shape before him.

    There is wariness to him, yes, but under this guise is a deep-seated protectiveness, and a devoted desire to see those he cares for safe — even if he typically goes about it in a rather unfortunate way.
