Name: Kanu Akmad
Age: 21 (6,453 years in reality)
Species: Dragon shifter/demon
Rank: Heir of Hell
Powers: He's a shifter, being able to transform from a human into a dragon at will, this also mean he can half shift, giving him the ability to have his wings, or sharp talons, or even the whole head of his dragon. He is also able to release this shadow-like purple substance that is actually poisonous to everyone. In dragon form, it comes out of his mouth like fire does in most normal dragons.
Looks: Kanu is not what you would expect someone of his ranking to look like, though he sports the unnatural good looks of all hell spawn, he is still not like his brethren.
To explain, Kanu has wild black hair although it isn't too long, there is a small section of hair that is longer and reaches his shoulder, this hair is always in a tiny braid. When using his powers, the tips of his hair turn purple.
Due to his half-shift powers, Kanu likes to have horns. They are always present on his human form no matter what the occasion. The horns lay flat against the top of his head but once they reach the back of his head then go upwards, they go up for about five inches then curve and flatten out again. His horns are almost split in half, the part closest to his head is black while the other side is an almost neon looking purple.
Like most Creatures of the Darkness, Kanu has sharp features, his jawline sharp as are his cheekbones. On his cheeks are little black-purple scales. They refuse to go away no matter how much he wants them gone.
Due to their tendency to use their appearances to get what they want, Creatures of the Dark have over the years evolved to be more beautiful. This includes natural eyeliner on most. This doesn't exclude Kanu, who's bold, large purple eyes have the perfect amount of pitch black skin that looks exactly like everlasting eyeliner. Underneath both his eyes are two black dots made of the same black skin as his eyeliner.
His skin is relatively pale, mostly because he spends most of his time in the underworld, where there is little to no light other than the stars. Which, unlike many tales, do exist in even the darkest places of the underworld.
Kanu isn't what you'd expect him to be physically. His body, although very strong, is not at all buff, sure he has a six pack and a tiny bit of muscle, but not nearly as much as you'd think he'd have. This is due to his dragon form, being only half dragon makes it a bit difficult. For the two races clash and the dragon part of him 'eats' his muscles. It is more like any muscle he gains, he will quickly lose if he doesn't regularly work out.
If there is not enough muscle, it'll start eating his organs. In fact, he only has one kidney from this slow process. That's besides the point though.
Although he works out every day, he can't keep the muscle he earns. Otherwise he'd be ripped.
Kanu's powers also manifest in his human form, granted, they come out of his hands instead of his mouth.
Tiny holes in his hands release the deadly shadows. From his fingertips, all the was to his heart is clear skin, where underneath the shadows always linger. The translucent skin makes almost fire-like waves up his arms and to his heart. The shadows always moving just beneath the surface of the skin.
Wrapped around his leg is a huge tattoo of a black dragon. This is something that he was born with as all shifters have their animals on some part of their body.
His back is covered in black-purple scales that practically glow in the dark.Often times, Kanu has huge wings. They are taller than him and tend to drag on the floor when not in use.The odd thing about his wings are that the ends are sort of shadows. When flying they turn solid but otherwise you can put your hand right through them.
He is quite tall, standing at around 6'4 and possibly able to get taller as most creatures of the Underworld do. In fact, the aging process stops at 7,000 years in the underworld. Though Kanu can choose to stay in whatever appearance he wishes to, and it turns out he enjoys looking 21 years old greatly. From now on he will only grow and his features won't change. Hopefully, all his working out will pay off and he'll be ripped one day.
Clothing: All of Kanu's shirts/cloaks have slits in the back where his wings can form and be free. Most of the time he wears a cloak, sometimes with a shirt underneath, sometimes not. He wears jeans most of the time, with no shoes because he is very used to the rough terrain of actual hell.
Dragon: Kanu's dragon form is a sight to behold. As for many it is the first and last dragon they will ever see. His body is pitch black with deep neon purple highlights that are everywhere.
The neon color is the brightest in his mouth, his whole mouth and tongue practically glow the purple. Even his teeth are lightly stained purple, or red, depending on the situation.
His talons are purple as well as his underbelly and underside of his long tail. His horns are the same as they are in his human form, his wings are too, the only difference is their size which triples when he switches to dragon form.
Kanu's talons are even the neon purple and glow when there is blood on them. Due to his pitch black scales, he is able to blend into the darkness and only his purple spots show. It makes the perfect distraction in order for him to kill things (or people) quickly.
He has the same, intelligent deep purple eyes when in this form.
If his emotions are going wild, his eyes gain this wild light and he becomes a force of pure destruction.
Personality: Kanu is quite the joker and flirt. He enjoys being the exact opposite of what people think he should be as the heir to the throne.
This means that Kanu isn't at all responsible or mature, he is reckless and full of youthful life. Wanting to go everywhere and see everything before taking his father's throne.
Speaking of father, his family is a mess. His mother forced into the royal bloodline due to her dragon heritage and insane strength. She is very docile though and a rather kind woman who hates her husband more than anything.
No one should like Kanu's father anyways, at least, that's what Kanu thinks. The man's name is Set and his name describes him perfectly. Chaotic. He is a horrible ruler even by Underworld standards and a horrible father to say the least. Making Kanu's life a living hell from the beginning and making Kanu even more reckless and unreliable than before. His father was a main reason he took up his current job.
Kanu makes his own money, choosing not to be a spoon fed child and never using his title to get what he wants.
When he's going through a particularlyrough patch, you can find him in a local pub or bar singing merry tunes with a jug of "Fire's Child" in one hand.
This drink is actually poison from a Deathbringer dragon and kills anyone who isn't a half breed.
It is also alcoholic to half-breeds.
So Kanu drinks when he's emotional, which makes it worse.
Kanu is actually very smart though you wouldn't guess it from the jokester aura he puts off. He tends to act stupid so when he actually says something smart he surprises everyone.
Kanu has never had the chance to have an actual friend, so he isn't too close with much of anyone other than his mother, she is very dear to him and he refuses to allow anyone he distrusts around her.Granted he isn't even home half the time, he still is protective when he's home.This is actually the dragon in him coming out, as dragons tend to be very protective of their possessions and family.
Once a dragon has their mind set on something, it is very hard to get them to not do it.
Especially when it has something to do with blood.
Extra: Kanu is actually an assassin. A demon of the night if you will.
He doesn't only kill people, if you pay him the right price he'll kill any creature you want him to. The only rule is no dragons, as he refuses to kill them due to the fact that he can hear their screams inside of his own head which is not cool.
Despite his outward appearance, he is very capable of killing. In fact, he had an older brother once whom he killed in order to get to be the heir. It is only a matter of time till he kills his father too.
