a character in “Rascall Pines”, as played by Animality Opera


Hellhound form.
Domestic dog form.

Name: Syde ; alias Matthew Todd
Age: 392 ; appears around 17.
Gender: Male
Species: Hellhound


Syde is by nature a selfish being who bases decisions purely off of what will benefit him most. This can make him appear cowardly or brave, kind or cold - he likes to consider himself heartless, but truly has a small degree of compassion... not that he would ever admit to it. He is rather quiet and solitary. He believes more in making "companions" than "friends", mostly because he is far from hesitant to use people or ditch them to save his own skin. This is not to say it is impossible to truly befriend him... There are a select few in his past who not only managed to find his heart, but on some level latch onto it. He is a sucker for sweets... Offer him something as simple as a cookie, cupcake, or piece of candy, and he will return the favor.


His memories of Hell are fuzzy, to say the least. He most clearly recalls when he was first sent to earth in the 17th century to manifest physical, and eventually human, form. Throughout history he was behind a number of murders, serial killers, and even some disease epidemics. In human form he would play the socially active role of a sophisticated dandy. As time progressed into the modern age, however, he settled into the quiet life of a homeless teen - eating out of the garbage in human form, and from time to time eating people in demon form.

There came an instance where, having been knocked unconscious during the night in full form, he awoke to the sunrise. He was out in the open and with nowhere to go and no time to change back into human form, he would have surely been incinerated in the sun. But Lord Anthony Doncaster had come across him. The man threw his thick, black cloak over Syde to shield him, giving him time to return to human form so the sun would no longer harm him - though he had already been burned, Lord Doncaster took him to Rascall Pines and had him treated. After recovering, Syde owed Lord Doncaster his life, and so became entirely loyal to the man. Though a selfish creature, Syde is a demon who respects debts, deals, and promises, and he did all he could to repay Lord Doncaster for the kindness shown to him.

He works as guard dog, pest control, and at times a janitor to the mansion. Since most of his duties involve canine form, he is usually seen as a normal - albeit very large - black dog unless hellhound form is called for. Most other mansion staff treat him as somewhat of a household pet... Which he doesn't always mind.

So begins...
