[Image: ZSONQDJ.png]Rohan is very clearly all wolf, both in coloration and build, though he is more on the lean side, standing at about 6'5 and weighing 200 pounds in Optime, his most frequently-used form. His pelt is thick and somewhat coarse, his ears are boxy, and he has a short muzzle. His colors mainly consists of shades of gray, ranging from a darker coal shade to a dusty ash. There is a swatch of color on his nose — a rusty, auburn red — and his eyes are a deep amethyst.

After his [M] capture by the Tears of Nín, Rohan carries with him a mark familiar to many Caledonians: an unsettling eye, carved into skin, stares, unblinking, on the right side of his chest. Because of his self-consciousness and newfound appreciation for clothes and baubles, he often covers this brand with tunics or cloaks. He is highly humanized, much like his mother, and wears his mane in all manner of braids. His ears are pierced irregularly and the jewelry is occasionally switched out for other studs or rings.

His affinity for flair gives him, more or less, a "pretty boy" vibe, and Rohan almost always has a bounce in his step. He's a looker and he knows it.
Rohan is, above all else, a performer.

To many, the Heartsong is a typical young man with an easy-going, charming aura about him. Polite and well-mannered, he would never say an ill-word about any of his packmates (at least not within earshot), and being under the strict tutelage of his mother has produced a very articulate and eloquent orator. With those closer in age to himself, he is likely to be a bit more brazen — his sister, Atica's, tenacity has certainly rubbed off on him as they have gotten older. He is every bit the rebellious teenager that a stern, rigorous mother and occasionally emotionally-distant father are expected to produce through unintended and unrelenting stress.

Though his even-tempered personality is not necessarily an act, it is most certainly a coping mechanism of some sort, keeping a deep-seated sense of inner turmoil and emotional baggage under lock and key.

There are experiences as a young boy that Rohan has never quite worked through in a healthy manner, and though he is highly reluctant to let anyone, much less his own family, in close enough to see, he is determined to act as though it all never happened, that it was all just a bad dream — to mixed, though often detrimental, results.

Rohan Heartsong is a member of New Caledonia, the son of two high-ranking members, Isiltári Fennore and Councilor Bellad Songthorn.

Soon after conception, his parents hastily (and secret) wed as to avoid their upcoming children from being bastards; and though their mother was, at first, far from thrilled at the prospect of having a litter, as soon as he and his sister, Atica, entered the world, they were doted on and loved wholeheartedly by their parents. His upbringing was nondescript, despite the elevated position his parents' ranks afforded him, and Rohan was quite dismayed when he was of age that he didn't shift as soon as his sister did.

When the Realm fell under enemy fire at the hands of the Tears of Nín, Rohan was kidnapped amidst siege fire and held captive at the enemy camp. He had encountered their leader, Ark Coara, and right-hand confidant, Silivren Garwaen, weeks prior, but never suspected they meant to do his Kingdom harm; under the influence of a [M] powerful psychedelic concoction, the young boy inadvertently revealed many secrets of his home to the Tears. Back in their possession, Rohan finally experienced his first shift, but this bittersweet moment was seen as a sign of good favor from the Nín by her zealous followers. Much like his mother before him, he was bound and branded by hot iron to mark him as blessed by the gods.

New Caledonia did receive aid in the form of Salsolan riders from the west, and the war was won, but not with sacrifice. Rohan managed to escape and return home, but it was clear that a piece of him was left behind.

Still, the young man strives to work hard and stay true to his studies (his mother would skin him alive otherwise), and he has recently gained an interest in swordsmanship — though Rohan is still drawn to the arts and particularly likes to sing, a fondness inherited from his father.
