IMPORTANT INFORMATION .
✧ CASUAL LIAR
— WILL NOTE LIES WITH AN ASTERISK IN ROLEPLAY. Regularly lies, but not without reason and thought. Malicious lies are reserved for gullible strangers and enemies, while innocent, less frequent lies are for attachments. He tends to be very skilled in leaving out any mannerisms that may tip others towards this, so, without proof or other reasons to believe that he's lying, please have a very intuitive or observant character to call him out on it. To note: I absolutely adore it when he's accused of lying when telling the truth. Let his reputation ruin him.
✧ SMALL OBSESSION WITH PARENTHOOD
— Dee's effectively abandoned his original family, and as a hybrid, he's sterile. He may be morally questionable, but all efforts to befriend, help, and nurture any young are innocent. The most he's hurting is himself. That said, parents: feel free to not trust Dee and ostracize him over spending too much time with your kids. I welcome the drama if you do as well.
✧ WOLF \ HELLHOUND HYBRID [BIRTH] \ HEALTH: 70% [the usual sleep deprivation and mild injuries]
— Dee retains the general shape and size of a wolf, although his father's side shows through in his sleek black coat, unusually wide smile, and dark grey eyes. The texture of his fur doesn't quite behave normally: it barely bristles or bends, and the strands fit neat enough that it looks sleek rather than warming. He's thin and lengthy without the bulk to his fur, but also short considering his lineage, at only about two feet tall. His tail is also thin and long compared to the rest of his body. He tends to curl it over his front paws when cold. Finally, there are a number of small scars that litter his pelt, but he's careful to wet his fur every morning to have them somewhat covered. The most prominent are on the pads of his paws, where he has several lines and indents.
For his face, Dee never quite grew out of his father's devilish smile. He has particularly sharp teeth, and whether smiling or snarling, his lips curl far enough back that it often suggests there's something wrong with his joy. That said, he normally smiles without the teeth, and even then, he enjoys looking at people through the side of his eyes, keeping the flirt in his expression for almost any conversation. How his expressions look and come off are almost constantly on his mind. Genuine smiles are less threatening, albeit rare. Other details of his face are the cut tips of his ears, often a set of small earrings, and the plain golden bands he wears towards the end of his tail.
— injuries: currently a healing bite on his shoulder
In most circumstances. He knows his own abilities, and he's careful not to overextend them in front of others. There's consciousness when it comes to being "classy" about it, but he doesn't shy away from letting others see his strengths. In social situations, he often feels comfortably in control of his own image. Similarly, yes, he knows when he looks good. Dee doesn't point out things that others have missed, but leans on the side of letting things speak for themselves. He's quick to jump in singing along to any song and lets a cutting remark past his lips as soon as he has a grasp on it. It's often not a bark, but a smile that doesn't hide the sharpness of his teeth.
Will Dee ever ask for solitude? Maybe, but that should be a clear indicator that something is wrong. Even the times he appears to purposefully isolate himself to finish something, he's looking for company, leaving the door open, and chatting with others right before so that they might offer to come along to continue the conversation. He can tolerate being alone for concentration's sake, but he at least prefers to have someone else lingering in the same space. This is a fundamental piece of his identity. He feels more comfortable in a crowd than alone out in the open. Opposite of claustrophobic, he often finds himself unsettled by open spaces. In all, Dee is the sort to initiate conversation whenever possible, even if that means making strangers nervous.
Dee may not make up stories for attention, but he certainly doesn't value honesty either. Its the lack of information that bothers him, not the quality of it. He loves playing games trying to catch others' lies, but at the end of the day, he'd beg a loved one to convince him that something wrong didn't just happen, scream at the top of his lungs that people are traveling, not dead, and in general, live a more comfortable lie than harsh reality. He keeps secrets, and he knows how to beat around the bush. An easy example is in hypocrisy- Dee may not follow his own advice, but his intentions in giving it are often wholehearted. "Do as I say, not as I do."
Dee loves to tell others that important things aren't bothering him. His conscious thoughts explain it as stopping others from stressing over him, but, in actuality, his subconscious assumes that his loved ones are going to push through this and give him the help he needs anyways. He's used to saying he doesn't have a headache, only to be presented with herbs in the next few minutes.
Dee hands out false forgiveness like hotcakes. It's only later in the day that others usually find out if he's still angry, whether that's in social exclusion, talking behind their back, putting something in their food to have them throwing up for the next hour, casually destroying something they own, or, of course, hating them in secret while pretending to be a friend. This partially comes from the fact that Dee is much stronger in planning retaliation than he is escalating things into a physical fight.
Despite some of his behaviors, if Dee loves someone, and they're comfortable with it, he enjoys showing it. Whether it's in 'I love you's, kind gestures, gifts, and embraces, he's outwardly affectionate. Despite being capable of the direct opposite, and the fact that genuine affection comes slower than it appears to, he's distinctly loving. Thoughtful. Loyal. Just try not to betray him completely.
Dee tends to notice small details quickly, whether he lets others know in the moment, or not. Someone fidgeting. How long others retain eye contact. Subtle differences in expression. He tends to be very aware of others in social settings, and the appearance of mild curiosity is often him analyzing things. This also extends to a spec of dirt on the floor, or the number of flowers in a bouquet. He’s detail oriented, and his mind likes to run. That said, his attention can be too focused, and he has to remind himself not to stare at one person in a room when he's interested in the whole crowd.
