a character in “The Dark Claw”, as played by Grumpy-Converse

Description

Image
Image


Name: Zayne Sterling

Nicknames: No proper nicknames, though he has ben called Zay, Zee, Sterling, Jay, and many more. He never really liked any of them.

Age: 20

Grade: Elder

Species: Werewolf/Shapeshifter

Face Claim: Zayn Malik (One Direction)

Human Form: Zayne has jet black hair. His eyes are a deep brown, that seem to sparkle when he is joking, or just in a certain light. He is probably of average height, standing at 6'1, and he has a muscular build, and six pack, due to the constant exercise and agility needed in the pack. He also has a piercing in his left ear. His style is something simple, and comfortable; Usually consisting of chino's or jeans, converse or trainers, a plain tee and an oversized hoodie.

Wolf Form: Zayne's wolf form has the same traits as his huamn form; from his jet black fur to match his shagy hair, to his muscular build in both cases. His eyes, as a wolf, though they are the same brown as his human form, seem to have a certain shine to them, giving them a yellow/goldish colour.

Personality: Zayne's personality can be up and down, shifting just like his appearance. One minute, he's the shy guy, quiet, a good listener, the next, he's an outgoing guy, and an all around troublemaker. To be honest, Zayne just has everyone's best interests at heart, and his mood changes on what he thinks everyone needs. You need someone to listen to your problems? Sure. Someone to play a trick on a human with you? He's your guy. This is especially true when it comes to Scout. He would do anything for her, and admires her outgoing, spunky personality, even though he will be the first to admit she is extremely stubborn. Though Zayne would hardly see this as a con. Infact, he considers it extremely cute.

Not that Zayne is all sunshine and rainbows, only look out for others kind-of-guy. He can also be pretty greedy. If he wasn't greedy, he wouldn't be trying to get a relationship going with Scout so badly. He is 99% certain that Ruby doesn't like him, and the fair thing to do would be to give up. If he keeps going, all that's going to happen is that everyone is going to get hurt; Scout in trouble because of the rules, and of course the fact that she is two years younger. She's not even an elder yet! The whole idea is just a disaster. It's like a student dating a teacher; Just plain wrong.

But Zayne can't help himself. Even if he has usually put other's first, Scout is too irresistable, I suppose you could say. Her unpredictable personality has Zayne on his toes the whole time, and overall, Scout is an energetic and fun girl. He can't help that he has fallen for her.

Zayne, as well as his 'nice guy' personality, is also extremely stubborn, when s=he thinks he is right. He hates admitting to being wrong, and hates being embarrassed. Not to mention that he can be a but flirtatious at times. He has never actually had a proper girlfriend, or at least one that he thought he would like to spend the rest of his life with.

And though he may be flirtatious, he is actually very protective over any girl. He used to have a fiery-temper, but has since attempted to cool it down, in fear of what would happen (see history).

He can also be childish... in a good way. Well, to some at least. Not all would view it as a good trait, but Zayne himself sees nothing wrong with it. He hates taking anything seriously. Life's too short to waste it worrying. As the annoying saying goes; YOLO.

And by childish, I mean CHILDISH. Zyane is the kind of guy that will watch Disney movies until 1 am, goes crazy over a lollipop, and still enjoys playing games like tag and hide and seek. Not that he doesn't have his serious side too, of course. Zayne has enough sense to calm down when it comes to something important, at least. And he isn't always childish. At least, not always completely childish. But Zayne is a sort of kid at heart, though he doubts that any six year old kid would enjoy drinking and partying until all hours.

History: Zayne's life had always been pretty screwed up. He was the oldest of his siblings, having a younger sister two years younger, though she wasn't a werewolf. His father, or rather step-father, as his father left before Zayne was born, abused his mother, and he and his sister would snuggle up in their rooms at night, listening to their 'parents' arguing from downstairs. Zayne never had any idea why his mother would marry the 'scumbag,' He didn't really care though. All he cared about was that his mother seemed to have another bruise or scar to cover with make-up every single day. And Peter, his step-dad, was the reason why.

When Tara, Zayne's sister, turned thirteen, their father started abusing her, too. That was the last straw for Zayne. After finding out, Zayne shifted for the first time, and his rage brought on his attack. His father was almost dead by the time he had calmed down again, and was shifted off to hospital immediately. When Zayne told his mother, the three quickly moved from there to Campbellton.

Since then, Zayne has always been fiercely protective over any girls, and though he may be slightly flirtatious at times, he would never use or abuse anyone, or intentionally hurt a girl's feelings. He also tries his hardest not to ge angry at all, for fear of what he mighht do.

Secrets:
  • Zayne has a crush on Ruby, or Scout. And not just a small one, oh no, by crush, I mean HUGE crush.
  • Zayne once attempted to kill his abusive father, and almost succeeded. Ever since he has been afraid of himself, and what he might do.

Other: N/A

Average post length: Apparently 246.79 words, but to be honest, it can change. Sometimes it would be up to five paragraphs (though I have to admit, not very often) and sometimes as little as five lines. It all depends on what I am given to work with, and what mood I am in. On average, I would say 2-3 paragraphs.

So begins...

Cam decided things were okay, for now, with Serena. He sent a text to both his sisters and his father. "Family night, be home by 6 for dinner"
Usually it wasn't the older brother asking for a family night, but their family wasnt usual.

He got up from his seat on the bench, took one last look up at the Ferris wheel where his sister was and headed out the exit. He grabbed a popcorn on his way out to satisfy his hunger. He munched on it while walking to his motorcycle, lingering by the tree he parked by. He leaned his back against the trunk and crossed on leg over the other coolly. He figured he needed something to pass the time so maybe he would go to the woods and shift, he hadn't ran in a while and his bones were aching for it. He threw out his popcorn, threw on his black helmet and started his bike. It was quite loud and fast, he made it to the woods behind his house in no time.

He ran just into the edge of the woods before changing. It felt so good, so free. He couldn't believe he hadn't changed in almost a week. He shook his head and raced through the woods, winding between the trees. He caught the scent of a few things. Three of them were people, or rather werewolves. He followed their scent and came up behind Mark and Zayne. He changed back into his human form and smiled. "Hello boys" He patted Mark on the back. "What are you two doing out here?" Mark was Cynthia's husband, and even though he had the hots for her, he had the utmost respect for Mark. Zayne was a new elder and was still learning the ropes and he had no reason not to be friendly with him either.

Zayne followed beside Marquis, walking casually among the trees and leaves that blanketed the ground. It was the perfect weather for this activity; Warm, yet with a slight breeze to cool you down. The two men had headed out into the woods after Mark had suggested giving Zayne a few pointers on being an Elder, which he had gratefully accepted. Zayne was actually so nervous about being an elder. Of course he would never show anyone that. And then there was who he was teaching... Scout. He wondered what the blonde was up to now.

The sound of Mark's voice brought him back to reality.
"Hey Zayne, got any questions before we get started? You know, simple ones like; why does this do that? or why does that smell different than this? or my most often asked question, Mark, how do I get a girlfriend?"
Zayne rolled his eyes and gave Mark a friendly shove. "Nah, I'm good," he said, a lopsided grin on his face. Mark always teased Zayne about something or an other, but it was always good-natured. Mark could always get Zayne to smile, making him one of Zayne's top ten people in the pack.

"Hey Zayne, I was wondering if you experienced any pain after your first transformation," Mark said, surprising Zayne. "I know it's not normal, but my brother still has pain when he transforms. I was wondering if you knew anything that could help."
"Sorry, dude. Never had any pains. Not that I remember, anyway." He shot Mark a sympathetic look as he picked an apple from a nearby tree. He knew that Mark must be worried, as it wasn't often that he had such a serious tone. Mark was known for being a laid-back guy. But he had always been quite protective over his brother.

"Hello boys."
Zayne turned around to the familiar voice of Cam. "What are you two doing out here?"
Zayne grinned. "Guess," he said jokingly. Cam was another person Zayne would consider to be his friend. The only fault he could say about him was his attitude towards women. He knew the guy would never hurt anyone, but anything even slightly rude would make Zayne uncomfortable.

"Sounds like Mark is drilling you a bit" He chuckled and kicked a stone that was by his foot. "Well what do you say we take a run and head down by the water" He liked the pool of water, it was refreshing on warm days like this. There was also a waterfall, which was fun.

"Come on, race ya there" he waved his hand as he started walking. As soon as he saw the other two were following, he shifted into his wolf form. He was a beautiful mix of colors. He started running at a quick pace until he felt the other two flanking him. He picked up his speed, weaving in and out of trees and leaping over the fallen trees from previous storms. He loved the forest. It was so nice to be able to shift, your mind set going simple and the freedom to be yourself. Cam was very swift and had good experience running and racing, since his sisters started shifting, they would often race each other. He usually always won unless he let them win of course.
When Mark and Zayne were at his sides, head for head, he would playfully nip at them and then speed again. Just when he was getting tired they reached the water. He quickly shifted back to human form and took off the majority of his clothes and dove right into the water. When he surfaced, "What are you waiting for!?" He yelled at the other too. He got a whiff of another wolf that was around. And it wasn't Zayne or Mark. "Do you smell that?"

Eva darted towards the small grey hare, in an instant she had caught it. She was an excellent runner, so it help very much with hunting fast animals. Though she wasn't at all hungry, she just felt like catching something. You know, something that'll keep her busy. Placing the now dead hare on the ground, Eva lifted her head up, as she ears perked up as well. She glanced around, she had thought she heard something, but couldn't detect what it was. The smell of other wolves hasn't hit her yet, all she could smell at this moment was the dead hare. 'Must be another animal...' She thought to herself, bending her head back down, and biting into the hare. Even if she wasn't hungry, Eva thought it was a waste to just leave the hare, so she ate it.

After Eva had finished the hare, she trotted back to the lake. It wasn't that late, but she didn't feel good about leaving her stuff out in the opened. When she neared the water, she heard a splash. 'Someone's here...' She stayed low and crawled towards the water, doing her best not to be noticed. Then she had picked up a familiar voice. "Do you smell that?" The voice wasn't very distinguished, but she knew it was somebody she knows. Eva made sure she was out of site before changing back into her human form.

Once Eva fixed herself up, she walked towards the water, getting a clearer view of who's there. She got to the pretty small rock, that had her bag leaning against it, and sat down on it. "Oh look at that. It's the three Elders." She announced, clearly seeing three of the Elders by the water. "Why hello Cameron, Zayne, and Marquis." She said with up most respect. She'd always be much kinder to the Elders than anyone else. She respected them, and that's how it should be with younger wolves.

Eva emerged. "i thought i smelled something" He smiled and waved at her from the water. "Good Afternoon Eva, would you like to join us?" He swam around on his back, making it look quite enjoyable. "Maybe you can get one of these fella's to get their fur wet." He laughed and splashed the water a little.
He wished one of his girls were there. By his girls, he means the sisters , Cynthia and Luna, .. or at least some other girl he could spend time with. He was finding the summer to bring a lot of loneliness.

"Have you been hunting?" He could smell blood or dead animal. "Exercising your new found skills?" He looked up at her.
He needed to start training his kid soon. Who did he have again? Lukas? Yea he should probably get on that. He made a mental note.

"Well, you know. Just enjoying the great outdoors and doing some self training." Eva told Marquis, giving him a light smile back.

She looked to Cameron when she heard his voice. "What? Do I smell?" She laughed and waved back. "Just kidding!" Walking over to the water, she sat down on one of the rocks, watching Cam swing around. "I'll have to think about that." She told him, though it did look like fun to go in the water. "Well...If I have your permission, you being an Elder and all, I could possibly..." She stopped and looked around, making sure Marquis and Zayne weren't looking. "I could push them into the water for you. But with that being said, you have to make sure I don't get in trouble for it." She whispered, leaning closely to Cam.

Eva blinked, sitting back up on the rock. "Well, yeah. My father told me to practice my hunting skills." She said, just as she noticed the smell of blood around her. "Of course! I've been exercising my new found skills since day one." She smiled, feeling all pumped up now.

Cam had to swim a little closer to hear her whisper. "Of course I give you permission" He smirked. "Just be gentle with them, they are fragile" He laughed.

"Well, that's great you are getting some practice in! More than i can say for some of the other young ones..." He thought about some of the young werewolves who would rather spend their time socializing and flirting than hunting and shifting. He couldn't wait to see Eva push the other elders into the water. He was probably the most playful male of the group and it would totally be something they would expect him to do. But they wouldn't expect him to get a young one to do it.

He got out of the water, only to do a front flip back in. He dove down to the bottom of the pool, it was very clear, he could see a few fish, and a turtle. He picked up the turtle, thank god it wasn't a snapped and brought it to the surface.

"Look i caught lunch!" He was joking of course. "Wanna pet it?" He swam it over to Ava.

Eva looked at Cameron like he was crazy or something. "Fragile? Them? I doubt it!" She laughed, grinning, as plotting her plan of attack. She tried her best not to talk too loud. She didn't want Marquis and Zayne to hear her.

"Well yeah, of course I'm getting some practice in! My father makes me practice everyday. He doesn't teach me anything, because he says that's Luna's job, but he does make sure I practice what I know all the time!" She said, full of determination. Unlike most of the younger wolves, Eva didn't really care if she was a werewolf. She actually takes great pride being one. But she rarely does have those moments when she wished she was just a normal human.

"Aww!! What a cute turtle!!" That was it. A little turtle had broke her. She was such an animal lover. Any small cute animal could easily take down Eva's hot-headed barrier. She took the turtle from Cameron and rubbed her left pointer finger against the turtle's forehead.

'I'll get those two later...' She thought, sitting back down on the rock by the water. "I'm going to name you Snappy." She was talking to a turtle...She's such a weird girl.

"Well thats good, because who knows how much effort Luna's gonna put into helping you.." Just the thought of Luna made his heart jump a little. With Luna it was a little more lust, with Cynthia it was a little more love.

"Snappy? You should be glad he isn't a snapper" He laughed. "You would be missing a few fingers already."
"Is anyone gonna come in with me? It's getting kinda boring in here. I was kinda climb behind the waterfall, Eva, wanna join?" He asked. He liked people, he liked to do things with them, for the most part. "You can bring Snappy if you would like" He laughed. She was so cute. He was so used to girls her age, having little sisters. He treated her like one of them.

"But you know Luna. She likes being the center of attention rather than being the one train someone." Eva slightly sighed, rolling her eyes. Luna barely is even training her it's more excuses then anything. Petting Snappy's turtle shell, she shook her head.

"Well, what if Snappy is a she and not a he?" She smiled at Cameron. "You would be missing a few fingers already." Eva looked at him. "Missing fingers? The battle wounds of the vicious turtle Snappy!!!" She couldn't help but laugh.

"Is anyone gonna come in with me? It's getting kinda boring in here. I was kinda climb behind the waterfall, Eva, wanna join?" He asked. Eva then thought for a moment. "I guess I could join. Good thing I decided to put on a swimsuit today." Luckily she was wearing a dress too, it was easy for her to take off her dress. She folded it and placed it right next to her bag, she also took off her leggings and boots and put them out of the way. Wearing a black and white print bikini, Eva tired her half black and half red hair up in a bun, before jumping right into the water.
