Name: True name unknown, calls himself Russet.
Age: Year unknown, but mature.
Preferences: Panromantic pansexual. Home culture permits sexual encounters with close friends, even after a mate is chosen.
Diet: Omnivorous. In order, prefers fish, meat, flowers and fruit, tuber vegetables (IE potatoes, carrots, other roots), leafy greens.
Personality: Feral and simple. Has morals but is with little shame. Reluctant to speak but does not seem mute; likely does not understand common tongue. Nomadic, rarely stays in one place for longer than a week or two. Enjoys company but will eventually wander off unless he's completely captivated. Supremely uncomfortable around larger beings and can tend to lash out. Largely nonviolent, but can be vicious when provoked. Very hygienic, loves to be groomed. In general very touchy even with acquaintances, displays odd ritualistic gestures and contact and expects them to be returned.
Appearance: See above. Covered in a layer of extremely small scales no larger than the eye of a sewing needle, which are slightly iridescent and give off a metallic sheen in sunlight. Approximately 8'5" at the top of his head, 17' long including the tail, and 964 LBS (2.5 meters tall, 5 meters long, 437 kilograms). Has a lean and muscular build, with a skeleton superficially resembling that of a horse. Forefeet have four toes in total, two walking fingers and two semi-opposable thumbs, one on either side of the foot. Overall texture is very smooth and silky, offering very little friction. Built for speed. Long, bone white horns resembling exaggerated vertebrae, growing perpetually. They are not very sharp, but they are heavy and rough. Long, dark hair and creamy honey coloured eyes. Relatively simple markings. Very large mouth with many sharp teeth, though has carnassials and molars as well for many different types of food. Inside of mouth and teeth are inky black, though some pink spotting is visible towards the very back of the tongue and throat. Skin beneath scales appears to be black, though blood is red and inner flesh is still red and pink. Hide feels thin and slides very easily over his muscles, which are chiseled and hard. Despite being thin, the hide is very flexible and elastic and resistant to damage.
History: History prior to arrival in Sora currently unknown. Said to have entered into the land by emerging from the ashes of a wildfire at the edges of the plains. Can occasionally be seen wandering between the plains and the desert, but is never in view of the mountains. It seems he can be tracked by the slain wolfpacks he leaves in his wake.
