full name >> Nyx Lykaios
aliases >> n/a
gender >> female
sexuality >> lesbian
marital status >> unmarried (taken)
age >> 20
dob >> November 1
sign >> Scorpio
species >> Lycanthrope
occupation >> Small-time professional MMA fighter. She's still new to UFC and is barely making anything from it, so she works a second job as a barback at The Last Round.
residence >> a 1 bed, 1 bath apartment. It's a little cluttered and not the neatest but not a total mess either. Just some clothes and glass bottles lying around. Decorations are pretty sparse for the most part, mostly just having furniture (a couch, coffee table, tv, old ass ps2, and a small shelf) and a couple posters hanging up. She doesn't even have a dining table.
Her bedroom is a bit more messy than the living room, since she also has a couple piles of sketchbooks and papers just lying in the corner, and she's very careless about where she puts her clothes and used towels, and there's a bunch of empty bottles everywhere here too. She does have a nightstand she could put things on, but all she really has on there is an ashtray and a couple bottles of e-liquid. The walls are sloppily painted black even though she's not supposed to do that and she has a bunch of band posters on her wall.
vehicles >> a sleek black Ram 1500 Rebel, the inanimate love of her life <3
Nyx is certainly someone who sticks out. She's extremely tall and lanky with legs that go on for miles. She's rail-thin and lacks curves aside from a slender waist, but very toned and athletic with more muscle than her lack of bulk would let on. Her skin is very pale and cool-undertoned, which burns way too easily. She has short black hair that's thick, wild, and spiky, which she lets do whatever it wants for the most part.
She is sharp-featured, having a slim well-defined jawline and a long, straight nose which is pretty prominent. Her eyes are a very vibrant icy silver, lined by noticeably pretty dark eyelashes and they're all natural baby, seeing as Nyx doesn't bother with makeup besides doing her nails black for that goth aesthetic. At a glance, she looks pretty masculine and has found herself being mistaken for a guy because of her butch style and mannerisms, but on closer observation her features are quite delicate and feminine.
Her teeth are sharp compared to most people, with prominent canines in particular, giving her grin an almost unsettling edge, especially when paired with her overly-intense stare.
height >> 6'2" // 188cm
weight >> roughly 145lbs // 66kg
tattoos >> FUCK on the inside of her right wrist. Knuckle tats that read LIVE FAST. A dotted line across her neck with a pair of scissors on the left side and text reading CUT HERE. She has sleeves on both arms in monochrome black and white, though I have no clue what they are exactly.
piercings >> Industrial bar in left ear. Two rings in earlobes on both sides. Got her nipples pierced on a dare.
scars >> When she was younger, she never went out showing her forearms for a reason — she has a number of pale self-harm scars on the inside of her arm, mostly faded now but noticeable if one looks closely. Her ink makes for a good distraction.
wardobe >> Nyx dresses casually and comfortably and almost always wears a couple different variations of what is essentially the same outfit—she's always wearing her ratty old black chucks, the same three pairs of dark wash jeans, and either a t-shirt or tanktop, favoring colors like white, black or grey. She wears a lot of button-downs, some short-sleeve, some long-sleeve, and always dark-colored. She typically wears an open button-down over another shirt and likes to wear the sleeves pushed up.
accessories >> Silver wristwatch with a black face on her left wrist. Often wears black rubber bracelets on her right. Sometimes seen wearing a baseball cap—mostly black but the front is white.
scent >> naturally has a smoky musk, usually covered by the scent of pine and tobacco.
wolf form >> In her wolf form, she appears like a bipedal black wolf marked with some grey on the back of her neck and thighs with silver eyes. She gains about a foot in height and remains very slim and lean, but her musculature is more apparent. With her large, thick mane, she doesn't look so thin.
In her wolf form, she appears like a bipedal wolf monster, gaining about a foot in height and remaining as slim and lean as ever. Her musculature becomes more apparent and defined as she bulks up slightly. Her coat is black, with some dark grey marking the back of her thick ruff and top of her tail. The same grey dusts her temples, flanks, and the back of her thighs. A lighter shade lines the sides of her neck and her cape. Her ruff darkens to black behind her ears as well as just past her rather defined shoulder blades. Besides that, she has no stand-out markings, just deep midnight blackness that darkens on her underbelly, ears, face, and legs.
Her fur is thick and wild, especially her large and pronounced mane and cape. Her fur is always standing up and sticking out in every direction, with a coarse, spiky texture. Her guard hairs are prickly but her underfur is comparatively soft and woolly.
Nyx has far less control and mastery over her inner beast than most werewolves, because her first shift took place when she was 16—extremely late compared to most of her kind. Her shifts are sparing as well, occurring only on the nights of the full moon. When shifted, her mind is purely feral. She doesn't go on a mindless rampage and does retain subconscious memories of those she is close to, but she's unpredictable and unable to control herself. She burns through her energy quickly and nearly always ends up rendering herself unconscious. When she returns from her transformed state, she can never seem to remember anything that happened.
Nyx is very genuine, honest and straight-forward in the way she presents herself. She's extremely blunt and says what she thinks maybe a little too much. It doesn't help that she is crude and vulgar with a love for drama. Some call her a bitch, she calls herself honest. She's just calling it how she sees it!
Staying occupied mentally and physically keeps Nyx sane. Most of the time, she gets bored pretty quickly. Not just bored of screwing with people, but of nearly anything. It's hard for her to pay attention and stay interested in something for long, especially if it's not really engaging her. That's why she seeks out fights and danger like she does—it's exciting, it engages her so much she barely notices anything else around her, and she feels like she has a clear goal. And when she has nothing to do, her racing thoughts drag her down and eat her alive.
Because she constantly craves excitement, Nyx regularly seeks conflict. She can be incredibly antagonistic—she likes to fight, to argue, to push other people's buttons. All just for the rush of it. Though she doesn't always come in trying to start a fight. It all depends on her mood. Some days she's reasonably amiable, albeit crude and brusque in a way that rubs many the wrong way. Other days she just wants to taste blood. And even on a good day, some people just annoy her and give her that urge to start a fight.
She finds people either love her or hate her—either her vulgarity and crass, blunt nature offends them and puts them off entirely or they find it a breath of fresh air and appreciate her sense of humor, as cruel as it can be. Nyx is incredibly sensitive and attuned to the way others tend to behave and respond to her, usually biased towards the negative due to her abusive upbringing. She longs to be respected, valued, and cared for the way she is but will not compromise herself just to please others because there is no satisfaction in being loved for something she's not.
Nyx's emotions run deeply and intensely, like a raging storm under her harsh, bristly exterior. She has a hard time controlling her emotional responses—she feels so much and is very impulsive on top of it, and it's almost impossible for her to hide how she's feeling at any given moment. Deep inside, she's a big softy and she hates it. She sometimes wishes she could be a little more stoic, and that she could hold back more easily. It's hard to distance herself for a moment and give her a second to chill out and be rational, and it's really a pain in the ass sometimes, especially with how she often views her emotions as 'weak' and 'pathetic'.
Her impulses and emotions lead her to being pretty reckless, but at the same time fuels her driven and vehement nature. When she finds something she feels strongly about, she dives in deep and engulfs herself in that passion. She becomes fixated and even slightly obsessive. Some might find it off-putting. Too much. Nyx doesn’t care if it’s "too much". It can hurt more than anything and leaves her feeling simultaneously at her best and worst, but she'd rather feel something than nothing at all.
After all, what's the point of living if you don't care about anything?

ISSA DYATLOV [played by Reuben] ●●● ●●● ●● ●● ●● ●● ●○The woman who somehow managed to steal the heart Nyx tried to forget she had. Nyx couldn't be happier the two of them crossed paths, a chance meeting that almost seemed too good to be true. Nyx is a mess in so many ways, but having Issa around makes things a little less shitty and for once, she's glad to be alive.
Issa is stunningly gorgeous. She is kind, intelligent, and charming, and so fucking adorable, always able to hold Nyx's attention. She never judges and always knows how to calm Nyx down and keep her grounded. Her strength is so admirable. It's no wonder Nyx fell so hard, Issa is everything she could want in a woman. Nyx had never been one to do relationships, but Issa's done the unthinkable and got wild Nyx to settle down and actually want to stick around. Issa is someone really special and Nyx cherishes what they have. This is worth protecting — she is worth protecting.
She makes Nyx want to be a better person. Nyx wants to do right by her and treat her like the fucking queen she is, she deserves the world and means so much more than she could ever know. Nyx really would do anything for her and she feels so fucking lucky that Issa is hers.
