Kai Levi Vladimar
Of course after living as a human for so long, Kai had long adapted to their ways and now blends in pretty well. No one could possibly tell he’s really a beast-turned-human. Not with his charming personality, witty remarks, and sassy comebacks. Friendly in nature, Kai can approach virtually anyone and strike up a conversation. He’s very casual and lax, easy-going and stress is a foreign word to him. Approachable and easy to talk to, Kai is also short-tempered and crass, lashing out sometimes on instinct when he doesn’t like something. Impatient, he doesn’t like to wait but it really depends on the situation and how much he likes the person or whether he wants to be in the situation. His sassiness and heavy use of sarcasm can usually make him come off as annoying to others, but he really doesn’t give a damn if others don’t like him. His sarcastic ways can come off as rude and he can be rather blunt and inconsiderate. Unless of course he likes the person then he tries to be on his best behavior. Actually no, the more he likes a person the more he acts like himself. He can be quite playful and childish, petulant even but it is all fun and games to him until someone gets hurt. Now if he cared for the person he would make sure they’re alright; if he didn’t care for them he would just leave them to fend for themselves.
He is a believer of the law of nature and survival of the fittest, obviously since he is still an animal at heart. Not a big fan of cowards, idiots, and those who do not fight for themselves. He detests those who can only mouth off, complain and whine yet not to a damn thing about their situations; weakness and learned helplessness are things he does not tolerate. Sometimes he might get angry and scold them; other times he might not even waste his saliva or oxygen on such people or creatures. Kai is a very active person, not at all passive; he doesn’t stand around waiting for things to happen to him. If he wants something, he’ll go and get it one way or another. Selfish but he can be selfless depending on circumstances; it has to involve someone special to him for him to be selfless and there are very very few people in the world that mean that much to him.
But to those very very rare people, he is as loyal as loyal can be and would never betray them unless given great reason to. He gives trust in those he cares for and would risk his own hide to save them and ensure they are unharmed. He’s also quite possessive over those he considers his and can get territorial; but he expresses this sort of jealousy in a cute way by bugging the person he likes and getting their attention or making them hate him so that they think of him constantly. Kai hasn’t found someone to love yet, but when he does he would want him to take up a large chunk of their attention. But he is understanding and would attempt not to be clingy.
Has a bit of an oral fixation and likes to keep his mouth occupied, either eating or chewing something; perfect when he has an enormous appetite and fast metabolism. If he’s not snacking constantly he could potentially eat a very large mean that would last him two or three days before he needs to eat again. Try not to come between him and food; he likes to eat very much and getting in the middle of meal time could result in some injuries and snapping chompers.
Don’t mistake his jovial personality for a pushover. To underestimate him is a death wish. He’s still very much a beast of legend that will not hesitate to kill or maim if he sees enough blood to do so. Has a strong bloodlust so getting a taste of blood could make him go into a frenzy. When he’s in such a state, reason will be lost to him as he thinks with pure animal instincts and will only want to taste that crimson life force. Only those he trusts dearly can possibly bring him out of this berserk state.
Born a leviathan, a sea beast, crocodilian in nature and appearance, who terrorized the seas back in the day. He had no name then, the humans only called him “The Leviathan” and any sailor or sea-goer feared incurring his wrath. His favorite pastime would be to randomly pick a ship and destroy it for pleasure, munching on the people who fell to their watery deaths. The beast knew of no parents or siblings, creatures like them grew up independent and alone; if they did not live long then obviously they were not meant to survive. The law of nature was the only rule and to survive you had to best all adversities. Hunters would target him, put a bounty on his head, but he only caused his bounty to increase after every 10 kills of wishful people. Not even some supernatural creatures dared to go against the mighty sea beast. His jaws decimated ships in two as if they were nothing but twigs and his tail turned everything into smithereens with one fell smash. His steel-hard hide was impenetrable by mortal weapons and in the sea there was none his equal.
Poseidon grew to like him and anointed him as a pet of the Sea God. In return for protection, the Sea God wanted the beast to destroy anything he asked. The god named the beast “Vladimar” for “sea king” and had him attack Troy before the Trojan War began. Unfortunately he was killed by the Greek hero Heracles. Sad his pet was gone, Poseidon decided to resurrect the beast, infusing Vladimar with his own blood, the blood of a god and soon Vladimar was born anew, retaining memories of his past but staring out a hatchling once more. Once more he was Poseidon’s favorite pet and he lived in the vast expanse of the seas and came whenever his master called. He spent his days causing chaos, terrorizing wayward locals on land, sunbathing on beaches and slumbering in the depths of the sea. Vladimar was unlike other leviathans; he was more than just a sea monster. He was a sea creature infused with god’s blood and had far more intelligence and powers than the rest of his kin. He learned to harness hydrokinesis as well as the ability to create storms such as hurricanes, maelstroms, typhoons and monsoons as well as thunderstorms over the ocean. Poseidon gifted him with other abilities too and would teach the creature about humanity and how to treasure it yet keep it within balance.
After a millennium and a half, Vladimar expressed interest in humanity and Poseidon blessed him with the ability to take on a human form as well as a humanoid crocodilian form to be on land. On land he learned human ways, having to slowly adapt from the natural animalistic instincts he had to blend in with society. The awareness of other supernatural creatures had always been known to him but he was very fascinated by human beings. When he grew bored of humans or when they would go into conflict, he would return to the sea in his true form once more, usually observing the humans at a distance. He’s learned plenty from humanity and is now able to blend into society without drawing attention to himself. Very knowledgeable considering how long he’s been alive and he still continues to learn as time passes on and he goes from century to century. While living as a human, he distances himself from mundane human trivialities and quarrels as he sees no reason to involve himself in inferior complications.
One day he decided to earn himself a degree so he could blend more with the advancing human world. He had no bloody idea what he wanted to get a degree in; he stared at the list for hours at various colleges and universities. In the end he went to UC Berkeley and received his undergrad there, a B.S. in biology and then went on Cambridge in the UK to get his masters and PhD in marine biology. He currently resides in France, Marseille mostly but travels around to do his research. He’s been to many parts of the world before settling in France.
