Age: 6 months
Breed: mixed, small/medium sized, (primarily jack russell terrier/beagle mix with traces of other breeds)
Personality: despite hardships hes had to deal with, face retains a fairly positive outlook on life, always excited and eager. being primarily jack russell gives him a lot of energy, and he is more than content to expend it for the sake of his pack. he rarely lets anything get him down and always looks for a chance to prove himself to those around him, subconsciously drawing validation from approval and acceptance within the group setting. while eager to prove himself and become either a fighter or preyfinder (he hopes to be a fighter, despite the size handicap), he is nervous in situations where he has to socialize--he seeks to befriend others but is always nervous they won't like him or won't want to be around him.
Appearance: face's fur is entirely black with no patterns or special exceptions, and he has a rough coat for a jack russell as opposed to a smooth coat. he was born with an extra pair of limbs, giving him six legs in total--a factor which gives him a great deal more speed than the average dog. he also has a pair of horns, though they are fairly short and dull and can't be used very easily in combat short of headbutting others. his eyes are black as well, with white sclera. he only has a little stump for a tail, though he was born this way, as his longer body compensates the need for a tail for balance. his most distinguishing feature is his absence of a face--just below his eyes, the whole top of his jaw is mangled and scarred away from an accident when he was young. it is highly disfiguring and repulses even the hardiest of dogs frequently. face hides this by wearing a skull to cover the singed, red flesh. his scent of smell is also inhibited by this, though not made useless, as his nose was not spared during the accident. he never willingly shows his facelessness to others unless forced, and therefore, little to no dogs truly know what lies under the skull he wears.
Limited Traits: none!
History: face was born outside of the packs, as a loner, and lived alone with his mother until they had the accident--face was far too young to remember, but it involved some very acidic waters, which took both his mother's life and his face, though he only survived through her sacrifice. fortunately, another group of dogs took him in--not a pack, but a group of strays, a male and his two female mates. while they allowed him to stay with them, they weren't all particularly kind to him, the male nicknaming him face as a means to taunt him for lacking one. he picked up the skull while he was with them, in an effort to deter some of the attention his disfiguration earned--in vain. he stayed with them only until they taught him to hunt, and they were happy to be rid of him. ignorant to packs and territory, he soon wandered into fawnstalker land. when the pack offered him to join or leave, he happily joined, eager to finally have an accepting group of dogs to live with.
