When it isn’t close to the full moon, Zarei is handsome, for a human, for most who look at him. He has messy brown hair, which has the ‘I just rolled out of bed’ look. His eyes are a soft green, with a kind intonation to them, albeit sad. Paired with this are his typically plain clothes, common enough for him to be able to blend in with any crowd. Closing in on the full moon, Zarei gets increasingly feline, starting with his fangs and going to his ears, and then tail. A day or two before transforming, he grows a thin layer of silky russet fur that shimmers in the light.
When transformed, he is as large, if not larger than, a full grown male tiger, with rippling muscles not apparent on his human form. His entire coat is reminiscent of a domestic cat, with a brown base, and black tabby markings, and his eyes are the same pale green as in his human form
Zarei is known as a hopeless optimist, and those who are close to him know there is nothing they can do to change his mind. He's stubborn, and a little naive, due to his relatively sheltered upbringing. While he is usually very serious, if he is comfortable around you, he reverts to being a bubbly child. He believes everyone should be given a second chance, no matter what they did in the past.
Zarei was born to two werecat parents, and grew up in a mostly sheltered area of all werecats, within the realm of Felnova, within a small tribe deep in the Darklight mountains, almost within the Myrlands territory.
He lead a happy life, never told of the struggles he could face, whether it be dragon-wise or not. He got his transformations later than most Werecat children, at around age twelve, and thus had been believed to be free of this.
When he did shift for the first time, it was incredibly painful, and he was larger than most first-shifters. Not too abnormally large, but large enough to be noticed by his family. They chalked it up to his later shifting and left it at that, continuing his training until he was actually an adult. Which is when, without his family noticing, he left to explore the world.
He opened a portal on his hundred and first birthday, which was thankfully *not* near a full moon, and travelled to Lizzarkyth seeking adventure. He found something much more dangerous. A small group of dragons had gone to the realm seeking the same thing, adventure.
Initially, they welcomed the werecat into their friend group, becoming fast friends. At least until the full moon, or at least one of them, was approaching. At first, they didn’t even notice when he grew his fangs, and while they noticed his ears they were sceptical. But because they looked faintly canine, they figured he might be a werewolf, and left it at that. That wasn’t the case.
As soon as his tail grew in, they tried to kill him, and without much other choice, he had to defend himself. Three dragons died that day. He didn’t know what he had done wrong, how had he even killed them? This was insane, and he hadn’t even known that he could transform on his own, without the power of the moon.
He buried them with his own two hands, and swore that he’d find a way to get rid of this prejudice… but how? Maybe… a cure. Maybe if they weren’t werecats, this wouldn’t happen! So, with a slightly lighter heart than it just had been, Zarei went to travel the realms, in order to find a ‘cure’ for his ‘condition’.
As a werecat, Zarei can shift between a human and cat form, normally triggered by the full moon. This transformation usually takes no longer than an hour before he is in his full feline form. However under extreme life/death situations, he can shift very quickly, and very painfully, into his feline form without the moon’s influence. It is reminiscent of a demon’s tri’akun, with him only being able to do this when in extreme danger.
Other than his shifting, he is extremely physically powerful, as all members of his species. His claws can cut through dragon’s scales with ease, and overall he becomes fairly graceful. Skilled with many weapons, including a short sword, a rapier, and daggers, though he only has on him a small set of daggers, which he rarely uses other than as a simple knife.
