Species: Xeriin (Forestkin)
Pascha looks to be, at first glance, pretty much indistinguishable from the hundreds of other children who linger after their parents have gone to war. Dressed in a well-worn tunic and pair of trousers, the only thing that stands out in his outfit are shoes - a part of polished leather boots, in fact, lovingly cared for and far too big for him. His hair is chestnut brown and raggedly cut with a dagger so that it doesn't grow past his shoulders. Brown freckles dot his nose, and his eyes, aggressively green, stand out in a slender bird-boned face.
On closer inspection, however, it becomes impossible to miss the long downy brown rabbit ears hiding in his hair. Extremely sensitive to touch, they are nevertheless indicative of Pascha's mood, and will stand up, flop, twitch, or quiver in response to the emotions that flood his childish mind. They are not the only beastlike quality about him; his footpaws, hidden in his boots, closely resemble those of a large hare, complete with soft brown fur that continues up his calves before smoothly transitioning into human skin once more. Supposedly he has a tail, but certainly no one has had the privilege to see it.
How do you tell a child he can't grow up to fight? Pascha's well-meaning caretakers struggle with this question every day that they see the scrawny rabbit-boy chase after his fellows. Orphaned by the Faction War, Pascha was initially quiet, hanging back from the other children of the monastery. But as time passed and he came out of his shell, it surprised everyone that he did so with a vengeance; not content to play games or lord over his natural skill at running, Pasha would follow the older boys around instead. Though he could barely lift a sword and was never able to throw anyone down in a wrestling match, Pascha tried everything that they did, sometimes obsessive to the point of self-injury.
But it was hopeless to turn him aside with thoughts of skills more suited to his ability. Though Pascha was the fastest, quietest, and most attentive child there (no one could sneak up on him, and he was forbidden to play hide and seek), the boy looked at these talents as deeply shameful. Warriors didn't run. Warriors didn't sneak around in the dark. Conflicted, he took to wearing a pair of cast-off boots that he stole from Jack, the orphanage's protector, hiding his paws and simultaneously making himself that much clumsier. Of course, it shortly became a pastime around the grounds to "scare Pascha out of his boots."
As a rabbit Xeriin, Pascha has certain species' strengths: he is exceptionally fast, has incredible hearing, and instinctive reflexes that go well beyond conscious thought. He is able to see in the dark and has eidetic memory, meaning he can perfectly visualize anything that he commits to mind. His body is lighter than that of most children his age; though it is clear to all but him that he will never develop a knight's body or strength, his insistence to pursue the training of older boys has given him a particular lean muscle that can handle his own bodyweight and cardiovascular strains with ease.
In terms of reiatsu, Pascha is untrained, and so any magical outbursts are unlikely to be controlled or focused enough to deal any real damage. One weapon he is skilled with is the rapier; a small dagger common to assassins, he keeps it on his person for especially dangerous bullies, though he loathes using it.
-blazeh was here and did stuff- ;D
