Notable Traits: Dorian is a stand-up comedian, and thus is often making jokes (especially puns), much to the dismay of the rest of his cell members. He is famous worldwide (Fame 3) due to his comedy shows, and his popularity is only continuing to grow. When Dorian is in his normal lighthearted mood, he gives off vibes that make people laugh and find even his worst jokes funny, but he radiates pure power and rage that terrifies most when he's angry (Presence 5). Those that can sense such things know that he has a strong connection to his inner beast (Feral Heart 5).
Dorian is in his mid-twenties, meaning he still has a mostly youthful appearance. He is primarily of Native American descent (Pequot), with a bit of English sprinkled in. He has tan skin, yellowish-brown eyes, and black, shoulder-length hair that he slicks back. He stands about 6'4 and weighs about 180 pounds of lean muscle, meaning he's a fairly imposing figure. Dorian typically wears designer jeans with a nice t-shirt (usually with a joke or something humorous on it), and standard tennis shoes, unless he plans on doing some fighting, in which case he wears raggedy clothes that are cheap and disposable.
Primal Beast Form
In his primal form, Dorian appears as a massive American Black Bear, much bigger than most people have ever seen a black bear get, complete with thick, jet-black fur, with the exception of his muzzle, which is a chocolate brown.
In war-beast form, Dorian looks as if he's a horrific combination of man and bear, standing about 8 feet in height. His fur color is the same as in his primal form. In this form, he can be found wielding a rather large and powerful axe.
Dorian is an extrovert who enjoys making people laugh and having a good time. He doesn't tend to take things seriously unless lives are on the line, in which case he's a devout friend and ally. He tends to seem rather full of himself, often letting his ego get the better of him. It's very rare that Dorian feels threatened by anything, believing that he has the strength and will to dominate any obstacle in his way. He is very passionate about his comedy career, often devoting many hours a week writing and rehearsing material. While he can take a joke, he finds it really annoying when people bash his comedy career and will likely become defensive if he feels it necessary to protect his pride and image.
Dorian Oswald Kitchens was born February 27, 1989 to Nathaniel and Bernadette Kitchens in the Mashantucket Pequot reservation in Connecticut. Nathaniel, his father, is of English and Pequot descent, and having only a few members of his immediate family born with the gift. Bernadette, his mother, is nearly full Pequot and nearly all of her immediate family has been born with the gift. At age 16, just a few weeks past his birthday, Dorian went through his first recorded changes, growing large claws and spouting bits of thick, black fur over his body. From that moment, his training for controlling his gift began. By age 17, Dorian had full control over his transformations, able to shift between his human and beast forms with ease. He also showed the rare ability to shift specific parts of his body. He also appears to be much larger than the average wereblackbear, actually comparing to a weregrizzly in size and bulk.
At age 18, Dorian left the reservation in the hopes of obtaining a college degree of some sort, much to his parents’ dismay. They scolded him, and attempted to force upon him the responsibilities of being a Changing Breed, of wielding power unobtainable to most people. Despite this, he left his parents, and not on a good note. Many harsh things were said on both sides, and relatively nothing has been said between them since. Dorian enrolled in a community college in Vermont, wanting to get out of his home state, and got a job as a grocery store clerk to help support himself while going to school.
Only two quarters after enrolling in school, aiming for a degree in communications, Dorian dropped out and got a full time job at the grocery store he had been working at while going to school. This was the extent of his life then; working 40 hours a week for little pay, and repeating the same thing over and over again. “Is this what I’m destined for, is this all I am, or all I could be?” Funny, a man who could transform into a beast capable of lifting and small vehicles and able to rip people limb from limb was working as a cashier at a grocery store. A normal life, for an abnormal person. His rise to comedic “glory” began slowly. At first, it started as a few jokes during work being told during his smoke breaks. This eventually led to him writing short material about things in the news or other local events and making fun of them. A few of his coworkers convinced him to do an open-mic at their favorite bar one night, and much to his surprise, several people liked his material, he had his dry spots and made some lame jokes that no one laughed at, but he wasn’t booed of the stage, and he gained a respectable amount of applause at the end, and that was good enough for him. He began scheduling events at different bars and other events, even occasionally traveling out of state to go to an open-mic or contest. He smiled at the thought of being a werebear comedian, maybe he should have been named Fozzie. Wokka wokka wokka.
At age 24, he had won several small awards for his work (only 3 years after beginning his career). At this point, he had quit his previous job and purchased a motor-home, which enabled him to travel cross country to do shows. He was only able to get spots at bars, talent shows, and some very small comedy shows, though he was usually an opening act with very little time to do his thing. His level of fame was never massive, so almost no one recognized him as he traveled around, which only pushed him to work harder. Dorian managed to make enough money from his comedy gigs to sustain himself, but it was never enough to actually do much with. Even so, his funds were still growing, even if it was at a rather slow pace. At age 25, he inherited some money from his grandparents when they passed (as they owned the Bear Paw Cigarette Company). Most of the stock and ownership of the cigarette company went to his parents, but his grandparents did leave him a sizeable amount.
His parents finally contacted him. But rather than congratulating him on his success, they told him that he was a disappointment. He had dodged the responsibilities of being born with power, and had chosen a life of stupidity and indulgence. They wanted him to further the species, he had only furthered himself.
Anyways, so Dorian is an up-and-coming comedian of sorts and at some point decides to participate in a talent show at a bar in Aberdeen, Washington. At some point during the show, Dorian notices something not quite right about one of the contestants. Being a supernatural creature, he can more or less see when something is of supernatural origin, and that guy was definitely not normal. He was literally bending reality in his fingertips, but he was using the guise of a stage magician. Most people probably thought it was just a trick, Dorian knew better. He remembered the moment he realized what was going on, and the change in him. That was the moment he became a believer in the Truth. The moment the Aberdeen cell realized the reality quotient went up and they sent a bunch of blood sucking parasites, uh, I mean vampires to put a stop to it. Realizing his nature, the vampires recruited him to fight the Truth. Despite the uneasy relationship with the kindred, he was taught all about the Truth, about how it was a being that was forcing itself into this reality, and how the more people believed in the reality, the stronger it became. He was told he’d have to fight it, or be killed due to his risk of being tainted.
Since then, he's worked hard to help defeat the Truth alongside the other members of his cell.
