Creature of OldeGender / Sexuality:
Male | PansexualAge:
Aries is a unique member of the Leshen species, being one of the few Leshen who decided to integrate with human society. However, his Gaiyan nature has not been influenced by his integration with human society. He is very calm and stoic, a Pacifist.
Leshen has a deep fascination with human behaviour, and will often respond to others with an inquisitive nature. He enjoys intellectual debates and will amuse himself by studying odd features of humanity i.e. jealousy. He tends to show little emotion, and can be a little less responsive to others, he would rather take think things over before dignifying them with a response. However, when he does formulate an answer, it is usually well-structured and supported with circumstantial or anecdotal evidence.
In terms of his ability to form relationships with others, Aries has no romantic qualities. He has never experienced love and only understands it from a logical perspective as the psychological and instinctive desire to find a mate. He is, however, open to friendships, he believes in the benefit of learning from others and has no qualms about company. Although he equally enjoys being alone, something a Leshen is naturally accommodated to.
Additionally, he is enslaved to a vampire/hybrid named Elijah St Cloud, however, he became a slave of his own choice. And as such is considered more of a companion and personal therapist to the hybrid as opposed to a slave.History
Bógiervestabron is one of the oldest remaining Gaiyans to currently roam Vyldermire, so old that pinpointing the exact time he was born is almost impossible. However, he can determine that he lived he before the discovery of humanity and the birth of Anthros/Eldritch. The Leshen had originally lost his home many millenniums ago, a result of a war waging between human tribes. The Leshen buried under burning rubble, expecting to die when the rain poured down on him. For a long time he resented humans, and as his anger toward the invasive race grew, against the will of his fellow Gaiyans he eventually partook in the slaughter of humans to avenge the loss of his home. However, when the fighting stopped and the humans that tribes settled their differences, he found himself lost and unsure of what to do. The Gaiyans forgave his transgressions but he felt this was not enough. He was curious about what he felt when he had killed those humans and so left the forest to learn more about these emotions.
Eventually, Bógiervestabron stumbled upon a village, at first they were scared of him, but a child approached him curiously. Seeing how the Leshen did not attempt to hurt the child, the Village chief, attempted to communicate with him. Although at this point he was not familiar with their language, they were able to communicate with each other. It was from then on he stayed and proceeded to learn about the humans who eventually gave him the name Aries Marrow, finding it easier to pronounce than his birth name. Growing with them, occasionally he would return to the forest for a few years, but he would always return to receive a warm welcome.
Eventually, he would undergo a great travesty, and in his most sorrowful state, he was saved by Elijah. Who refused to kill him at his request, as such he imployed the being to enslave him and punish him for his existence. And thus the two underwent into a magical contract. Together for many centuries, Aries was able to use his time with Elijah to learn more about species other than Gaiyan, he even enrolled in human studies under a guise and has many qualifications. Together to various worlds in search of Eli's children and with each world they have gained more knowledge. His most prominent achievement being his doctorate in psychology.
- Leshen Species Info:
Name of Species: Leshen
Baseline Dimension: A fully grown Leshen can stand at up to seven or eight foot in height, they can weigh up to 250lbs. Some Leshen are capable of taking on human disguises, however, this requires a lot of magical energy to maintain. There are no specifications to their human forms as they will usual take of a human form they have seen themselves.
Baseline Appearance: A Leshen has the general outline of a human in stance but that is the only similarity, their bodies are made of earthly materials as their heads resemble the skull of a forest creature i.e deer, ram, goat etc.
Culture/Origin of Species:
Creatures as old as time itself, they are born from the forest to serve as it's guardian and protectors, believe by some to be gods. They are wielders of ancient magic and can be very dangerous if crossed.
Over many centuries, Leshen's have observed and witnessed the modernization of the human world, and with it many fell victim to it's technological advances. The act of deforestation left many Leshen's homeless and even resulted in the death of some of their species. As a result the Leshen's were infuriated with the humans, some even sort to fight them, resulting in a war of sorts between the species. However eventually the Leshen found this was only doing more damage to their motherland, resulting in devastated landscapes and forest fires. As a result, a peace treaty was formed between the species and now there are specific regions of forest that are covered by the Leshen Habitation Protection Treaty. Thus prohibiting humans from using them as resources or building on these areas of land. Over time, peace has become commonplace between the two species and the war long forgotten. Some Leshen have even integrated fully into Human Society and coexist with them.
