( IC OPINIONS / "SPEECH" / BUMP PRIVATE THREADS AFTER 4 DAYS )
✦ MICHAEL SERAPHINUS | male
✦ age unknown | will not reveal true age
✦ abandoned by his father | slowly repairing his relationship with his brothers
✦ longtime wanderer | former member of solaris kingdom
✦ hyperian isles — member
✦ WINGED LION [MAIN/BIRTH]
— a powerfully built lion with a sleek, muscular physique whose every movement indicates pure, primitive power
— stainless fur that is a purer whiter than milk or snow
— large, angelic wings reminiscent of a swan's, except for the color, which is a pale icy blue
— stormy eyes that match his wings in color, brittle as glass that is seconds away from shattering and frigid enough to freeze the entire world
— thin, silvery scars scattered liberally across his forearms and chest, as though he was raked with thorns
✦ STERN | EGOTISTICAL | ALOOF
✦ OBEDIENT | DISCIPLINED | CONFIDENT
— aloof with strangers, michael presents as a distant, reserved figure. to see his passion is to challenge him or his ideals; he does not anger easily and strangers are more likely to think of him as a cool, stonehearted figure than one given to wild bursts of emotion.
— michael cannot bear to be wrong; it is one of his worst traits. he is stubborn and mulish, and will not budge from his position. as one might imagine, this leads to strife between him and others, especially those who see his attitude as being holier-than-thou. it also means that he doesn't forgive easily but rather will bear a grudge for decades, and that he is unlikely to compromise.
— michael has a very controlling nature, perhaps because he views his path as the best and cannot bear to see others deviate from it. when he has influence over someone, michael will often try to bend them to his will and push them to act in whatever manner he sees fit. he doesn't view this behavior as manipulative. the term would shock him, for all michael intends to do is help the other individual see the light.
— michael is currently mentally worn out. his faith in others and in himself is shaken, and he has little energy for the justice he once pursued. he is tired, weary, lonely from so long spent without the company of his brothers, and he is this close to finally breaking.
✦ NPC X NPC
— never knew his mother | abandoned by his father
✦ brother of lucifer, raphael, gabriel
— not on speaking terms with lucifer | poor relationship with gabriel
✦ single | bisexual | 0 "maybe" crushes
— not currently interested in a relationship
— friends with spiritline bandauher
✦ PHYSICALLY & MENTALLY CHALLENGING | TAG IF ATTACKING
Obviously, Mike's exact backstory since the split will have to be worked out with whoever adopts Raph. He was played by someone else while I was inactive but from what I've seen, that was for a brief period of time, so I'm going to be mostly ignoring that. (Perhaps that time could ic be explained by Mike's general fatigue with his existence and a desire to find himself.) So basically, since he met Gabe and Lucifer in BlizzardClan, he's been wandering.
Preferably (though this bit is dependent on Raph's rper's agreement) Raph was the one who left him, not the other way around.
Of course, Mike eventually has to reconnect with his brothers. They might never get along but there's a chance that something will develop in that direction. Mike would probably resist any efforts on their part short of a full apology; on his part, he'd likely need to be pushed into apologizing/trying to reconnect (and really, he doesn't see a difference) by someone he's close to.
Michael's really bad with names, mostly because he doesn't care enough about anyone outside of his immediate family to bother remembering their names. He's gotten better recently and can greet most of his current clanmates by name, but he's still likely to mix up animals of the same species or creatures from other groups.
