Vinnie is the most straight-forward of the characters in Smoke, Fur And Stone.
He's powerful and street-smart but not very complicated. As long as he can be with his mate (Jordan), protect his pack and enjoy good food and good company, he's happy.
As a fighter, Vinnie is dangerous and brutal but lacks Tyr's need to destroy his opponent unless necessary. Part of his job involves training the young Skin recruits in hand-to-hand combat and how to fight in their various forms. He's respected and well-liked by nearly all of them and several of the female Skin recruits have sighed over the fact he's wasting himself on a human female.
He has one kid (Gracie) from a previous relationship and of course, his pack wouldn't be complete without Rabbit, who he views as a substitute little brother.
Despite the hardships he survived as a war orphan living on the streets, Vinnie is the least tormented of our heroes. He had to do some bad things to ensure he and Rabbit survived but he's come to terms with that. In fact, there's only one thing he can't come to terms with - and that's Rabbit choosing Tyr as a mate One of my favorite writers won a headshot painting in the last Skins fanfic/fanart contest and she wanted Vinnie
