#Dogs-of-Celious-City

My app for DoCC~ I might make another character, but for now, Howl is okay c: This used to be my character Crowe, but he was never used, so I withdrew the design because I like it. <3

Name
Howler

Nickname
Some just call him "Howl"... But if you call him that to his face you better either have a damn good reason or you know you can outrun him. Otherwise you might soon experience missing face disease.

Age
About 31 or 32; not old, but beyond youth.

Gender
Male

Breed
A mix of several different things, including some German Shepherd and Chow.

Rank
Crime lord, West syndicate

Residence
Penthouse, West side

Accessories
[ Heart Earring ]: A small red heart piercing in his jagged ear. He always wears this; the argument could be made that it makes him appear much less dangerous, but further evidence would suggest that this isn't the case.
[ Brass Collar ]: A metal collar that's a bit tight, but his flesh has moved around it. If he were to take it off, an open wound would be showing, almost as if it had been a part of his neck for quite some time.

Personality
Calm. Collected. Dangerous. This is a dog whose temper won't likely show itself until someone is fixing to die, which is some sort of betrayal seeing as he gets irritated pretty easily, especially when subordinates are concerned. He's a very quiet individual, a trait that often only furthers his ominous nature. In the end, he cares very little for his subordinates, unless they are somewhat equal to him in strength or intelligence. Known for his remarkable cruelty, he is ruthless to anyone who dares call themselves his enemy, although he has such hatred for the "good guys" that he'd rather team up with the other crime syndicate than allow the police force or the mayor satisfaction. He enjoys his job most of the time, but his sickness has made him mostly resort to making others do his "dirty work" in lieu of doing it himself.

Brief History
A resoundingly little amount is known by anyone of his backstory, for he shares very little, if any. Thus, many have resorted to spreading rumours about his history, so a great many things circulate about him or his past; it's the general idea that he was born of a whore, who, upon his birth, was murdered by his father, presumably a businessman wanting to cover his misdeeds...when his father was imprisoned for his charge, the very young, unnamed pup was taken in by the jail's warden, having nowhere else to go. He was raised estranged, alienated by not only the citizens of Celious for his background, but also by the criminal underworld for being raised by the jail's lead dog; which is where it gets fuzzy. At some point along the line, something in him snapped, and he went rogue. He got into the crime ring, and in a matter of just a few months he climbed the ranks, known for his legendary sadism. The inevitable came finally, and he took the final step up, becoming the crime lord for West Celious where he still reigns with an iron-clad paw.

Relationships
N/A, haven't RPed yet

RP Example
Celious sleeps.
Yellow, half-lidded eyes stared dully out the window at the snow, watching it slowly drift downwards from the black sky to blanket the darkened, shivering city. Howler's ribcage shuttered, and the cold of the glass suddenly stuck in his throat, making him cough quietly onto its pane...blood dripped from his jaw onto the wooden floor beneath his claws. Glancing at it, he lay his ears back, easing his lanky form to stand and listening to only the sound of his overgrown claws clicking on the floor as he padded to the collection of pillows and blankets he called his bed. "Boring city," he said in his low, growling tone, laying down on a pillow and heaving a sigh. "I should kill someone tomorrow."

Other
:bulletblack: There are many different theories that circulate about how he got his name, but there are only two main stories. One is that he got it from his days at the jail as a puppy; the inmates would scare him and he would let out a magnificent howl worthy of a wolf, and the moniker stuck. Another is that before his gang attacks any large area, he lets out a bone-chilling howl, signalling that blood was about to be spilled. Neither are confirmed.

:bulletblack: His mother always drank and did drugs when pregnant with him; as a result, he was born with a sickness similar to tuberculosis. If he gets too stressed or gets too exhausted (or extremely hot/cold), he starts coughing up blood in spasms, and he's usually bedridden for the next day. The worst attack he's suffered was when his stomach was cut open by an enemy dog; while in the hospital, his recovery took two weeks longer than usual, and the symptoms got so bad he was almost considered a lost cause. To avoid these spurts of sickness, he usually tries to take it easy, not getting stressed easily and getting others to do the hard work in the organization.

:bulletblack: He has a fear of water, but you're not ever going to know that.
