Born into the Wolf tribe of Seekers, Seru's mother was a travelling merchant and alchemist from Ul'dah. She would often take the young Seeker on her trips around the realm and taught him various techniques that she had learned in the lab and on the battlefield. During one of their annual trips to Thavnair she was mistaken for 'property' and the both of them were locked away and forced to work under the mogul-- or else death was certain. Seru was raised into a weapon for the group who he grew to despise greatly. Unbeknownst to them that would be their downfall.
Seru grew well acquainted with alchemy-- specifically poisons for both people and monsters, became more technical with spears, and learned how the realm operated in general. Strategy also became something that fascinated him even though most of it went out of the door when he lost himself, others would look into his vast knowledge.
The unruly and often judged (and dangerous) side of the realm also became something that fascinated the Seeker especially since it yielded rare items for alchemy and unmatched prices for them. Black markets and the underground in general are a huge part to his successful plans for the future.
Personality & Hobbies
A firm believer in knowledge is power, Seru can often be found with his nose in a tome. Despite his voice and expressions being on the apathetic side of the spectrum he genuinely grows to care about those around him. He's very anti-social so to get to that point is a big plus.
His sadistic nature reveals itself when he enters combat or if someone gets on his bad side. It especially comes out when he has a new concoction that he can't wait to test on someone. Take caution that he has the mindset of an evil genius.
As past times he enjoys sweets of all kinds (his own little secret!), sun bathing on good days, and travelling to different places. As of recently he has joined a Yakuza family with the hopes to grow and prosper with them.

What I’m looking for - 'Business partners', fellow toxicologist, friendships, potential enemies, connections of all kind! He isn't that big into romance at the moment but if it were to occur it would be the slow burn route. While he partakes in mature themes, plots created don't have to be centered around that!
Respect for myself and my character just like how I will respect you and yours!
Please keep OOC/IC interactions in their respective places.
What I won't RP: Death. Injuries are okay since it's expected with what he does and he accepts that daily, but death is out of the question. Keep in mind this should be brought up beforehand.
In light of this- I am not looking for ERP. If anything gets to that point with him it would most likely be a respectful fade to black.
RP style - Normally I write paragraphs of emotes but I generally mirror post of others/ whichever makes them feel most comfortable or whatever the setting calls for. I can adapt!
Schedule - The weekends are usually free for me unless something comes up. After 5PM EST are my free times for the weekdays.
About me - Yo, I go by Howl and I’m extremely laid back! I like to play other games, chat with friends, talk about music, throw memes around, and just chill the hell out. I absolutely love to plot and I'm super interested in hearing about your OCs and anything involving them. I promise you I don't bite!
You can catch me in game (W'seru Ihsir) or DM me on Tumblr.

RP Hooks --
Venomous - Seru concocts and handles his own poisons in whichever lab at his disposal. This also means that he dabbles in many botanical researches and handlings in his spare time. Anything from toxins, antidotes for said toxins, and various medicinal products. If you’re searching for anything rare that can be grown, he probably has it. These can also be seen in all corners of the black markets to coat weapons, and 'take care of' the unsuspected. This is his main source of income. He has been labeled as an evil genius and he absolutely takes pride in that title.
Deeper Underground -- Currently Seru is looking for all sorts of black market connections for both his company and himself. Anything from rare weapons in masses, supplies, and ingredients.
Sloth - You will probably find him lounging around and being lazy in some far corner of the realm. Relaxation when he isn’t working is key to his psyche. If he can tolerate you he wouldn’t mind someone chatting in his ear, otherwise you’ll just be a bother to him. With this being said he could always use an adventuring buddy especially to unknown locales. There's a vast world out there!
Thief Collector - On the side Seru searches for and legally borrows ancient books and tomes hidden away within the land- for better or for worse. Anything from deep dungeon diving to delving into the black markets.
If I must. - Being a spear user he typically trains with his preferred weapon during down time. Though in actual combat he tends to get way too excited to the point where it becomes an unbefitting rage. He's trying to find a way to stop it but with little luck. Half of him is afraid of what he's capable of; while the other half is intrigued by it. Again he blames his upbringing- but could it be something else? Typically he uses whatever he makes in the lab for combat but he wants to break that cycle.
