It's hard growing up when no one wants you. Rejected by his mother and father both, he was taken in by his mother's brother to raise. Not that having to raise a literal little monster is anyone's ideal way to spend a few years. Still his uncle was a patient man a guided the young metis through his first change and instructed him in the way of his people and adopted tribe. In fact, his uncle's pack in Seattle adopted the young shifter and gave him quite a varied education if not exactly a traditional one.
After he went through his rite of passage he decided to strike out on his own and see a little of the country. He uses his skills as an artist to make enough money to get from place to place and keep food in his belly, sleeping in his old camper van as often as not. Part of him is just looking for a place to settle and call home, though.
