a p p e a r a n c e x // xThey say appearance is everything. Giles doesn't quite buy into fashion but he does keep himself well groomed and presentable. His clothing in general is almost always second hand, whether it come from thrifting or friends. He's never fancied himself as someone who spends inordinate amounts of money for the top brands. He's fine with his dollar store threads and cheap fabric. Most of the time nobody can tell the difference anyways.

S P E C I E S :: S H I F T E R


Though shifters get a bad rap, Giles has always been at peace with himself and who he is. Though he does not give in to the animal impulses they are still there, just below the surface. He has done his best to both be, and not be, by melding together the parts that make him human and the parts that make him animal. Just like his birth mother, Giles takes the form of a Jaguar. A fearsome apex predator, but not one that is often driven to attack for no reason. Jaguars are the patient watchers, the stalkers in the night, and though they often avoid direct confrontation, when forced into it they deal with it quickly and brutally. Giles is truly no different in this context, though hes more inclined to verbally battle than physically. In his shifted form he is quite large, though not unusually so for his species. Average, if anything. His fur slightly duskier in tone than that of the regular jaguar. When not shifted there are a few distinct markers that often give-away what he is. Sometimes its a look in his eyes, or the way his teeth are just a bit too sharp for comfort. Or the way he moves, as if gliding along rather than walking normally.

For as long as Giles has been alive he has exhibited an extremely connected set of personality traits with that of the animal he is able to shift into. Of course, this isn't an unusual thing at all. What is unusual however is that despite being a solitary animal, Giles did not develop the innate need to be alone at all. Instead, he has simply transformed that trait into a deep indepence, and the ability to face extended periods of solitude without starving for interaction. He does quite well on his own, but ultimately finds more joy in keeping the company of others. Genuinely friendly, he is an easily approachable guy that tends to do what he can to minimize the discomfort of others. Even to his own detriment. But where relationships at a deeper level are concerned he can seem somewhat distant, more comfortable with being friendly than intimate.

Of course, he wouldn't be who he is without being quite the investigator. Inquisitive to a fault, but capable of reigning in his impulses. Giles may be outspoken and verbose when taking the stand against injustice, but he knows all to well that he must think deeply, and act accordingly to get the desired results from a situation. He takes an active role in the community at large, not simply just fighting for his own species but for anyone who faces discrimination. Though there are many who would dismiss his work simply because he is a shifter, he takes the hatred in stride and channels it into his writing - of which he refuses to mince words.

There is a certain level of self-righteousness that does emerge however when faced with his work. A bit of conceit with a dash of ad nauseum thrown into the mix. It would be unfair to say that he is faultless, because truthfully, he has said and done things in his past and present that do not reflect well on himself entirely. Though he has worked hard to find the self-discipline needed to curb his own enthusiasm.

H I S T O R I A R U M


Giles was always aware that he was adopted, it would have been hard not to know not only because of the difference in physical appearance but also the fact that none of his family shifted into Jaguars. Though they are shifters. His mother had been young, and single at the time of his conception with very little desire or financial ability to raise a child. So Giles grew up with the Gills, and had a pretty much average childhood. He was never truly affected by any of the prejudices against his species until well into his teens. Subsequently, this also happened to be around the time that stress, hormones, and the generally feeling of being different caused him to start acting out. Rebelling against not only his parents, but also just adults and authority figures in general.

He became cynical, sarcastic, and snide when faced with any reality that did not mesh with his own. He was angry, nearly all of the time and lashing out more and more by the day. Even he couldn't figure out what the hell was wrong with him. All he knew is that things in the world were not alright and he was sick of it. His anger would lead him down a dark path. One where he spent most of his time inebriated, partying with his friends, and vandalizing people's property. His parents were concerned, and rightly so, he needed help. But he didn't know how to ask for it.

His dad bought him his first journal when he was sixteen. At first he thought it was silly, as if writing out his feelings was going to do anything to help. But eventually, it did help, it became the therapeutical act that would eventually grow into his career. Though these days his articles aren't teenage angst but rather thought provoking. In his youth he was much more aggressively charged, ready to throw down at a moments notice. But age and maturity caught up to him eventually, and while he never quite shed his rebellious streak he did morph it into something more productive.

Initially Giles wanted to become an educator, someone who could make a difference by leading the next generation into the world. He even spent a year or two as a TA, but eventually figured out that he didn't have the patience for a classroom setting. Sure, he could teach others. He could come up with speeches on the fly and motivate others if he so chose. But it was the stiffness of a classroom setting that he just didn't vibe with. He wanted to be active, to put himself out there. Now the closest he gets to a classroom setting is when he's doing guest lectures at the university.
