About Me

Ability Description

Black-Footed Cat
- Compact. Don't call him small.
- A little thick. Don't call him chubby.
- Has a darkly spotted coat on a cream base, large eyes and circular ears.




- Born to a large family in the swamps of Louisiana.
- As his siblings grew older, they moved away to seek green pastures, particularly after their parents died. Calvin remained.
- Met a woman in his early twenties and charmed her into marriage. They had a baby girl a year later, his absolute light.
- His refusal to move out of his verified shack in the middle of a bog to better their prospects at income was a chafing point that turned red and raw. His wife left him after five years, leaving his daughter with him.
- The pair got along just fine, remaining close up until until she graduated high school. She fell in with a bad crowd. Got a boyfriend, got high, got too high and overdosed.
- After his daughter's death, the piece of land he'd clung to held too many bad memories. Picking up, he left Louisiana without much in his wallet and without a plan. Camping out beneath an overpass one night, he was attacked in his tent and bitten by what he thought was a rabid cat.
- When the bite healed, he thought little of it. A victim of a hit and run, the Shifter who did the deed never sought him out, but others found him and showed him what was what -- not enough, but enough to get by.
- Managed to scrimp enough to afford his own food truck six months ago and rolled into Portland.
