LITTLE BEAST, ARE YOU WILD AS ME?

ALEKSEI BARANSKI
TRUE NEUTRAL ⬩ ISTJ-T

The first born of three, the inheritor of his father's kingdom. The creeds of his lineage were drilled into him from a young age—duty and family before all else. But his sister fell for a man not of her blood or pack (far too young, far too naïve, far too weak), his brother wandered to his heart's content (never tethered, never burdened with inheritance, never taking anything seriously), and Aleksei himself became hardened in the face of his family's most tumultuous years.

And then the River King passed, succumbing to a reopened wound that never quite healed right. Everything crumbled before Aleksei like rocks to ash. He was but a yearling, not yet mature enough to inherit that which his father had left behind, and so the pack's trusted second-in-command took rank. In an instant, all the respect Aleksei had for the male vanished and was instead replaced with childish anger. He fled with imagined scorn hanging over him.

He left home, to find and be himself. ("Kill the boy and let the man be born.") Yet for all his determination to live, there is an internal conflict that exists. He contradicts himself—one's duty is important, yet he abandoned his; place your blood above all else, yet he left his behind. He was a failure, a deserter, no longer deserving of the name Baranski.

And in Canis, he woke and lives as just Aleksei, carrying the consequential guilt of his sin without remembering the crime.

LEFT SOME TEETH IN YOUR ENEMIES?

On the surface he appears logical and collected, but beneath is someone deeply scarred by the childhood they cannot remember; a temperamental and stubborn young man grappling with not only his place in the world but the constant feeling of phantom-like eyes on him that expect nothing short of perfection.

He is loyal, possesses a sense of honour and nobility that suits roles of leadership, but alongside them lingers self-inflicted shame and doubt that he cannot pinpoint the cause of. He accepts responsibility for his failings, regardless of whether they are perceived as such by others or only himself. His frankness extends outward—he will not hesitate to speak bluntly and plainly, though none of it is done with ill intentions. Rather, he genuinely believes that honesty is important, regardless of whether or not the truth hurts to hear.

In a nutshell, Aleksei is dutiful, direct, and self-critical. He means well, but can come across indelicate and intimidating. Somewhere past the hardness is a man who wants to be soft, but cannot express it openly through fear that he will be perceived as weak.

Fun Facts

⬩ The scars over his left eye were received during a fight with a lynx—the very same type of creature that caused his father's eventual death. He has a hazy recollection of the event.

⬩ His scent is comprised of cypress and spruce trees, with a distinct petrichor undertone.
⬩ Likened to Jon Snow (A Song of Ice and Fire), Andrei Bolkonsky (War and Peace), and Ardbert (Final Fantasy XIV).
