Amras is a 183cm tall, digitigrade white, arctic werewolf (with a small amount of coyote lineage) with short, straight red hair in a 1-inch forward fade (example photos can be provided to artists for current haircut; hair was previously shown as shoulder length, straight red hair sometimes pulled back into a ponytail). The highlights in his fur are warm, even on the coldest winter’s day, but do not break the pristine white of his coat. Do take note that Amras has a “coyote spot” of faded red (same colour as his red hair, referenced above) on his tail around the supracaudal gland.
A friendly and caring wolf, his calm, dominant nature and easy going—yet often sarcastic—attitude shine through in the way he carries himself. At about 170lbs, Amras’ body type makes him look something between skinny and average, with decent but not overwhelming muscle tone—i.e. he’s no power lifter, but he is a CrossFit athlete and soccer player. If nude his build should reflect a closer-to-canine bone structure in the depth of the chest and line of the waist (think werewolf meets furry… sort of) with canine-specific anatomy below the waist.
He is not modest and so he rarely wears clothes when not required to. When he is clothed—care should be taken to reflect his build with the fall of the fabric—he often wears board shorts or gym shorts (compression style), further revealing his beach-bum childhood, and a heather-coloured, bright t-shirt. No shoes. Never shoes. Amras is keen to his surroundings and those around him, his moves are confident and smooth. If he trips he is the first to laugh it off, but that shouldn’t fool you as wolves are constantly testing and sizing up everyone around them and it’s possible that the trip was a test to measure your reaction.
When drawn as a “feral” or “Lupus,” Amras doesn’t have “hair” on his head but his scruff becomes red.
Amras is a werewolf, he changes from a “normal” anthropomorphic wolf into a werewolf version of himself. All details are essentially the same, but height grows to 243 cm and his weight and musculature roughly doubles. He still isn’t going to look like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, but he isn’t far off as a werewolf—and he’s definitely stronger.
Amras is also able to assume any of the Five Forms™—Homid (in this case, anthropomorphic wolf instead of human), Glabro, Crinos (“true” werewolf form), Hispo, and Lupus—at will. In all cases, he has a tail because he is a real and true werewolf, not a cynocephalus. And as a real and true werewolf, Amras is not “bound to the moon” nor vulnerable to silver, which are pop-culture myths originated by the Hammer Film Studios’ The Curse of the Werewolf (1961).
