Wolf
Date of Birth:
30th July 2015
Luperci:
Luperci Verto
Appearance:
Being a mix of nothing but wolves, Silas sports typical wolf features. Though he is larger in terms of size, most of his weight comes from muscle more than it does body mass. He is underweight for someone of his natural size, but not nearly as much as he was before coming to Salsola. Much of his physical appearance and endurance comes from his time as a slave, and only grew more when becoming a servant. His natural fur is relatively short compared to other canines' and does get thicker in the winter. His tail is slightly longer than a normal wolf's.

Silas is rarely seen outside of his Optime form, as it is the best one to use when there is work to be done. His lupus form will often be used if he wants to run around or is out hunting, leaving his secui form rarely used. Even when in his ideal form, he will still walk around on his hands and feet as if he was in optime. He does this not only as a means of keeping himself far lower than others, but because he is more used to a non-luperci's natural form rather than the one he has now. He will often sit and lay down in a lupus like manner as well. When in optime form, a short tuft of lighter brown (blonde/gold or auburn/orange acceptable as well) on his head. It flows down the back of his head and main front two strands fall to either side of his face.

His pelt shows off the true beauty of the del Mortes' neutral colors. His eyes are golden, an extremely rare trait to find among those in his family tree. The colors of his pelt get slightly lighter when his winter coat grows in, but not by that much of a noticeable difference. His face almost always holds some sort neutral expression, but when he does want to show emotion, he can be very expressive.

Silas doesn't own much to his name. In terms of clothing, he owns a set of loose black pants, ones that he is always wearing whenever he is awake. He owns a brown shirt with golden trimming, something that was loaned to him when he had first taken Aidan out to test what he had learned. He had been given it to keep and only wears it for special events or more tests. Regardless of his clothing, he is always wearing one accessory: a leather collar around his neck. His collar was a gift from Kruger, and is often very reluctant to remove it and down right hates the idea of ever getting rid of it. Though many in Salsola would disagree, Silas always carries a pair of daggers around with him. They were a gift from the Emissary, but he knows well enough to never turn them on a ranked member.

Because Silas walked around on all fours in optime form a lot, he is prone to natural back problems. He can often feel stiff when standing upright, and have the area be sore for long stretches of time. It has not been bad enough to get him to break this habit, but prolonged use will likely lead to more problems down the road in his life.
Personality:
In his youth, Silas was a very outgoing child. He loved to explore and run around, something that was still carried over into his adulthood. Whenever he wasn't doing anything, he would like to run around the fields near home, enjoying the breeze and the way his paws felt running along the grass and flowers. He was curious about many things, and cared about the people around him. Even though he couldn't do much, he would try to help as best he could. When he was stolen away from home, he was a very defiant child, refusing anything and everything that he could. The many punishments build up his endurance, and even had a bit of a temper.

When Kruger finally broke him, he became much more submissive. He listened to those around him, and did anything that was asked of him. His caring nature and desire to help others were still passed along to his adulthood, the captors of Rabenuhr looking to capitalize on this to help with the other slaves. Silas grew to accept not only his place in life, but many of the other aspects to freedom that were taken away from him. He lived to serve, and grew happy to do so. Due to the nature of the things that were being taught to him, he grew to become very observant, looking for the little things that stood out in people and well as what could be used as a weakness. He can act out a role if need be, and doesn't mind when others thing he's just a lesser being for what he is. Insults do not bother him.

When someone he cares about in either hurt or in danger, Silas can sometimes act without thinking. When someone in injured, he will look to see about taking care of the wound on his own, showing a gentle touch and sometimes be a little more affectionate than need be. When someone is in danger, his temper can flare up, causing him to become very angry. He will often not show mercy if he is caught in a fight with someone, more so than if ordered to kill someone, and will not stop until the other person is dead. In both instances, his lack of thinking can sometimes get him in trouble, but he doesn't really care much to think of the consequences when this happens.

Silas has a severe case of stockholm syndrome, developed from his time in Rabenuhr. He has a tendency to grow attached to his captors, even going so far as to fall in love with them. Since coming to Salsola, he has been trying to break away from this as many of the members do seem to show him genuine kindness.

Silas can often be reluctant to let others get close to him emotionally. He lost the first love he had, even if it was his master, and two of his children. Not wanting to feel the pain of loss again, he doesn't often express his true feelings to others. Because of this, the few that do seem to get close to him, he feels a need to make sure they are safe, and fall under the category of those he might risk his anger flaring up when they are in danger.

History:
Silas is the son of Wolfram del Morte and Tori del Morte. He was born on the non-luperci side of the del Morte family, and was having a relatively normal childhood. One day when wandering away from home alone, he was stolen away by hunters of Rabenuhr, where he was placed with other pups that had been captured. At first, he had been placed into the gladiatorial ring, but refused to fight. Tactics changed, but still he refused to do anything. Seeing as punishments were doing nothing to break his spirit, they resorted to slicing his tongue and burning the wound shut, not only damaging the inside of his throat, but making him mute.

When it became clear that not even this was enough to break him, the Ringmaster, Kruger Blackwood, hatched a plan. He offered the chance to bring Silas back to his home, and more importantly, back to the family he had been so adamant about getting back to. When the pair returned to the del Morte's home, Silas noticed that his parents had another child, his younger brother Liam del Morte. Kruger had convinced Silas that his family had moved on without him, replaced him with another child, and that he had nothing to return home to. Finally he was broken and returned to Rabenuhr. Unknown to Silas, Kruger had the whole event set up, and saw to execute the family once he had returned home with his prize.

Silas became an obedient slave, serving Kruger himself. He had been rewarded for his new found good behavior, even being gifted with the luperci virus to better make use of his efforts. He was given slight bits of freedom, helping out to care for other slaves in Rabenuhr and adjust new canines captured to adjust to their new lives. He was taught sigh language along with how to read and write to help with communication, taught how to use daggers to act as a killer for his master, and bred to be a night sex slave to buyers, but never as one to keep. He grew an unhealthy love for his master, and the Ringmaster showed affection back, if only to keep more control over Silas.

Master and slave eventually made their way to Nova Scotia to seek opportunity. It was here when they came across Salsola and Helena Troy Lykoi. What was meant to be business ended in tragedy when Kruger was killed by a group that was hired by Helena. She came at the last minute to kill the last member and prove her innocence in the matter. With his dying breath, Silas was given to Helena to bring back to Salsola, where he was made a Mendicant, a servant to all of those in Salsola.

While living here, he met Julia, and against Salsola's laws, had a litter of children. When the children were discovered by Calla Valentine, Julia brought them to Silas to hide. He was only able to hide one before the other two were taken away by Calla and killed. Silas hatched a plan to save the last child by masking her scent and presenting her to the Boss as an abandoned pup he had found along Salsola's borders. She was given back to her mother with protection from the crown, with the two of them hiding the true nature of their relationship to Twila a secret.

Silas became close to many members and families in Salsola. His rank changed to an Indentured Servant when he was gifted to Aidan, a reward for rescuing the Boss' own servant. The two saw it as good fortune, as Silas had already been teaching Aidan about social cues and how to better interact with others. Aidan held the remainder of Silas' debt, and upon feeling that he had learned everything that Silas could teach him, saw that his debt was paid. Silas was freed of his servitude, though chose to remain with Aidan so long as he was allowed to.

Silas works to adjust to his new life in freedom. He feel very lost due to his history, and tends to fall back into habit of doing anything he can to help others in Salsola.
