Liam Wilder

Faerykin
Male
27 Years Old

Looks
Liam is notably effeminate. He has fair, soft skin and coppery hair, which he keeps trimmed short and neatly parted from his dark silver eyes. They could be thought alluring, if they ever smiled. Everyone think's he's younger than his actual age because of his dainty figure (just over five feet tall), and his boyish face. It stands out for being too pretty and clean, especially in his war-torn, survivalist's world. Liam doesn’t even shave. He has healthy, hairless skin (even down under), and a lithe, fit body, unmarred save for his hands. The palms are callous and the knuckles deeply scarred from hand-fighting in his past.

Demeanor
There’s a certain cat-like quality to Liam’s behavior. He’s comfortable with heights, is light on his feet and instinctively quiet. When he does speak, it’s low, sullen and flat as stagnant water. Few get the “pleasure” of talking to him however, due to his blunt, reclusive nature. He often can’t make eye contact and responds tersely, or not at all. On top of that, his neat-freak side makes him sensitive to personal space, and prone to show discomfort and distaste at his surroundings. For instance, he’ll spot high ground and may “perch” there, as if to seem above others, when really he’s just averse to the dirty floor.

Dress
Neat and prim. One of Liam’s numerous domestic skills is sewing, so he is sure to take care of his outfits, make them last, and spend hours tailoring them to his build and taste. For casual wear, he has dark polyester vests, white button-up shirts and riding boots, finding comfort in their grip on his calves. If expecting a fight, which is often, he prefers thin clothing he can move in, with only shin guards, hand wraps and a stab-proof vest for armor. The less he leaves his opponent to grab, the better.

Equipment
Liam always keeps his two weapons concealed. Drawing either one means intent to kill, and his enemy will not see it coming. He owns an M9 Beretta pistol with a 15 round chamber and 200 meter fire range, and a black boot knife with a 4-inch blade.

Magic
Source
Liam is a Faerykin. He was born with magic, passed down to him from his father, a Court faery lord from Sheerahame. Liam inherited a couple of magic traits, underlined below.

Abilities
He has a power which he calls "Shadowstepping" that lets him teleport through darkness and shadow. When there's no dark space in sight, Liam will invariably find one with the help of an internal sense. Both his detection and teleportation range is exactly fifty yards. He can also see in the dark, even pitch black, up to fifty feet. Light and weather fluctuate, however, so Liam's magic doesn't always help him. He can do a lot more on a dark night than he can on a cloudy day. 

Limits
His biggest limit is his own body - he only has so much energy and constant Shadowstepping exhausts him. If he's too exhausted, wounded or unable to think, then he's powerless. Not only that, Shadowstepping is picky. It won't take him through faint, unstable or moving shadows. The space has to be big enough for him to Step through. He can't take other people, or anything he's unable to physically carry. And it's always possible to keep him from Stepping. Just bind him down, or hold him with a good grip.

Beliefs
Liam's gypsy family was strongly superstitious, and tended to believe all gods and all faiths, any and all sources of fortune and protection. But Liam never saw the good that did. He's a survivalist, pure and simple, relying only on himself and what he can see.

Sexuality
Liam is asexual. When he was first learned what sex was, Liam thought it sounded gross and messy, and that opinion has persisted into adulthood. It's more than disinterest. Sex, nakedness and overall intimacy tends to provoke him, triggering trauma he suffered as a kid.

Backstory
Half faery, half human, Liam is a freak and he knows it; his life is shaped by it. He's from Canada and spent his childhood traveling and learning from gypsies. He picked up all kinds of skills and cheats from them, loved them, trusted them. His biological mother died when he was too young to remember her, though his foster mother Mina remembers her as a sad and broken woman. He has no idea who his father is, only that he gets his faery magic from him.

The person who first changed Liam's life was his foster brother, Tag. The two never got along, as Tag was several years older and resented Liam for taking all of Mina's affection, but he was still his brother, teaching him things, influencing him, caring about him. It all changed when a deadly disease swept through the gypsies. Mina died, the camp fell to a new low and did many desperate things to get by. Less than a week after Mina's death, Tag sold Liam to a human trafficker named Adrian. Liam was only twelve years old.

Liam can't clearly remember that time. He remembers a dark room, hot stage lights, camera flashes, and receiving syringe injections. Adrian was giving him regular sedatives, but one night, for whatever reason, he forgot. With a clear head for the first time in days, Liam used his Shadowstepping to easily escape the building, and ran until he found a Canadian ranger outpost. The people there hospitalized him and searched for Adrian, but the trafficker had already flown the coop.
