"Kai" Tam Kwok-Kuen | Characters
Created: January 5th, 2020
He struggles with deep-seated anger issues, and while he's gotten very good at controlling them and has a much longer fuse than he used to, certain topics can still trigger an outburst. They're usually accompanied by an amount of partial shifting - the usual teeth, claws, eyes deal. He's particularly sensitive to attacks on his family or claims that his sister may in fact be gone for good. He also has a pretty black and white way of viewing crime and is very judgmental of those who commit it, even if they have good reason.
> The coat stays on most of the time - it's usually thrown on to cover whatever mess of clothes he has underneath. He usually wears rather scruffy and "nerdy" type clothes like turtlenecks.
> The markings on his animal forms are not set, e.g. the stripes are totally random. As long as the main colours match his clothes, it's fine. He doesn't shapeshift often, but when he does he's more likely to be a crow.
> Kai Tam is his English name and Tam Kwok-Kuen (pronounced Gok-Kyun) is his Cantonese one, though on official documents it would be written run together as above. Neither name is more real than the other, but he mostly goes by Kai unless around other Cantonese speakers.
