Squee, my baby Caspian. Isn't he adorable!? He's a were-pire. Half werewolf, half vampire. It's funny. To him, anyhow. I'm having great fun writing his story-in fact, I'll put down the very beginning of it for your boredom satisfaction:
"Caspian was roaming about this new place, this disgustingly ugly city of Palm's Reach. At one point, it had been a big tourist spot with good port trade, but now, it was a dump. Half the buildings were condemned. Everything seemed to be the one gunmetal grey, in disrepair and neglect. But Caspian reveled in this, and he went to the city as often as possible, though his parents discouraged him roaming about on his own. But who gives a shit? He felt he could hold his own just fine out here. Never mind being a were-pire (as Caspian had jokingly dubbed himself), it was being in this city that mattered. He loved it. It felt like something happened here, and it felt like it had really been shaken up. And it didn't bustle about, Caspian liked this. So today, he sat himself upon the Snack Shack and let the wind toss his black hair as he grinned and stared out over the ocean, reflecting his dream of being the biggest name in the city.
There was a whimper of terror on the sidewalk and a girl was backing away from a few evil looking guys. She had long, red hair that fell to her back and vivid green eyes that were full of terror. She wore jeans and a sweater, but her face and neck were covered in bruises. She looked too innocent and sweet to be here, but the guys seemed to know her very well, as they were mocking her about her abusive mother and father who were also alcoholics. They called her Jessica, but she preferred to be called Jess. Everyone looked down on her as the low-life abused girl who will be killed before she can make a living. She had a dream to prove them wrong. But, as she eyes the crobar in one of the guy's hands fearfully, she knew she would never reach her dream. Some would call her crazy for not calling for help, but she knew very well that help would never come and the beating would just be worse. She wished she met someone who cared enough not to hit her.
Caspian, from his perch, saw--he made the impressive leap down in the midst of this. "Hey, you fockin' assholes, why don't you fock with someone your own size?" He had a crazy look on his face, grinning from ear to ear. "I'll take all you fockers on at once!" His pronunciation was off, but it only made him sound like he had an accent. He did, ish. He picked up the accent while he was on the Venan Isles and it never quite went away. The chain on his collar jingled-another inside joke for himself. He had a dog collar and a bat charm. Obviously, in his own way, he found it hilarious.
Jess let out a whimper when she saw Caspian, obviously scared of him, too.
The guy just laughed at him for his accent. "We might, when you learn how to talk. Jessica deserves the beatings she gets."
She whimpered and winced when they used the name Jessica. She was always called Jessica by people who were going to hurt her.
Caspian laughed back, "Y' think I can't fight 'cos I got a fockin' accent? Fock you! I say that Jess here can skitter of w'out you assholes tryin' to take out your lack o' lay on her. Come on, you motherfockers, hit me! I dare you!" He inadvertedly used her nickname, as he preferred to shorten long names. In fact, he occasionally referred to himself as Cassy or Cas, just cuz. "
It's a collaboration between me and a friend. I'm going to hold off on replying to comments until I put somethign else up, for the room. :D Understandable, right? Oh, a clarifying point-I typed everything about Caspian. Where it breaks off is where my friend started, and then where that breaks off, it's me again, and lalala...

Oooooooohhhh! I love it, the story and the picture. The picture is so cool. I love the look on his face, and his EYES!

The story is pretty cool, too, though I like Caspian more than I like the girl. His accent. It...It's the most wonderful thing I've ever heard *shiny eyes*.
