Wolf Ortus
As he has grown, Severus's pelt has settled into a medium gray coloration with a slightly darker mask over his face. His eyes are a bright silver color, standing out from his darker pelt.

Severus never leaves his Optime form. He favors a few faded pairs of holey bliuejeans most of all, though he sometimes wears cargo pants with pockets to carry his treasures around with him.
When possible, Severus tends to stick one of his siblings, as the three have formed a unique bond. As a child, with his brother Judas around constantly causing trouble, Severus learned to gain negative attention. As a pup he often put himself into dangerous situations or by acted out or causing some kind of trouble, showing a lack of self-control and trying to mimic his younger brother, but without Judas's high intellect to secure his actual safety. Quick to cry or whine, Severus strove for his mother's approval, only to be blatantly ignored; Naniko visibly favored and doted on Octavius, while she lashed out at Judas. As a result, Severus grew into an bitter but anxious adolescent, quiet in the presence of strangers and much too self-reprimanding of himself and aiming his abilities to impossible standards.

Deeply troubled and at odds with his own self-esteem, Severus is stoic and private most of the time and apt to mood swings between avarice and depression. He is not at all unfriendly, but choosy with his acquaintances, and slow to reveal himself or open up. He still struggles with schizophrenia, although to what degree would be the player's decision; what has been described here would be considered his "true" self. He is increasingly anxious due to the voices in his head, often depending on the severity, and at times persuaded by them into very uncharacteristic behavior. With the voices forcing him into action at times, Severus fills the niche between actor Octavius and thinker Judas, allowing him for an equal portion of each, and consequently allowing him the most balanced of the triplets. Though, with his self-esteem, it must just go to waste...

As a side note, Severus possesses perfect pitch and is extremely musically talented -- perhaps even moreso than his polymath brother Octavius -- but fails to acknowledge his own ability as it still falls below the standards he has set for himself.
Severus was born into Anathema to Naniko D'Angelo, the pack's leader at the time, and Barrett Poer de Aika XIII on August 1, 2011. He was the middle child of three brothers, and like Octavius helplessly witnessed much of the abuse on his youngest brother, Judas, by their mother, who thought the runt possessed by a demon. Despite it, the three brothers formed a considerable partnership, watching each others' backs when possible -- and when it came to leave Anathema, leaving as one group but to separate destinations. Unlike Judas, who sought worldly knowledge, and Octavius, who sought adventure and experience, Severus wished only for freedom and a land where he could create a new reputation for himself.

Severus spent most of his one-year absence with an elderly wolf named Kurai. He hunted for Kurai, who he called "Master" or 'Master Kurai' in exchange for the luperci teaching him useful skills. He learned the art of thievery, skills such as pickpocketing, stealth, sleight of hand, lockpicking, and hand to hand combat. His master's son Devlin would stop by the camp occasionally to spar with Severus as well and help him learn new skills.

During his stay with the Master, Severus' schizophrenia began to get worse. He went into a fit one night and was discovered by Kurai, who asked what was wrong with him. When Severus admitted his symptoms, the master told him that he thought with enough training Severus could overcome it. He trained and trained, trying to ignore the voice in his head. It often told him to kill his master, but Severus ignored it.

Then one day the voice's message began to change. The voice began to say that Severus was stronger than Master Kurai now, and that Master Kurai was weak. It convinced him that he ought to spar with the master to see which of them was better. Severus did so, and was nearly defeated by the old alcoholic. The voice told him that this had been his master's plan all along, to trick him into fighting and then kill him. This scared the male and he reacted violently. He used a few dishonorable moves and got his master on his back on the ground. It was then that the voice came once again, telling him to kill the master before he killed Severus himself. And so the gray male did, strangling his master there on the ground. He then took some valuable items from the camp and made his way toward the trader's outpost to find someone familiar.
