Build Slim, works out
Domino has a trim, yet nicely defined frame that he does his best to keep in shape. He has a curly mop of black hair atop his head that he always keeps on the ‘shaggy’ side. Ever since he started growing it, he’s been known to flip between a scruff of facial hair, or clean shaven- it never normally goes more than a few days without being shaved. He loves to change his look, one day he’ll get dressed in a suit and tie, cleaning up nicely. The next he’s in something more akin to a club kid look. Around the house he typically will stick with what’s comfortable. It is not uncommon for him to ‘go all out’ for a party; wearing cloths that are tight and leave little to the imagination. Domino is also unafraid of certain taboos like piercings, tattoos or make-up (on men). He himself has a piercing in each ear and one in his tongue.
His cougar/mountain lion/puma/panther or whatever term you want to use for his form, stands at about 28 inches tall and seven feel long (nose to tip of the tail, tail being 30 inches long). His coat is a tawny color with a light underbelly and the dark around his eyes.
Domino is sort of a force to be reckoned with, not in a bad way… more of a force of nature way. He’s constantly ‘on’ and has this flamboyant, party, carefree attitude about things. He’s the type of person to make friend easily and doesn’t acknowledge he has any enemies. He loves meeting new people and finding new ways to have fun. He’s a constant flirt (with everyone) and loves to make people feel better about themselves. He’s fiercely loyal to his friends and will defend them even if their at fault (and then give them a friendly ‘what were you thinking’ talk later).
Domino is not held down by social stigma, actually doesn’t really seem to acknowledge it at all. Many times it seems he has no shame about things. Which is handy when you get stuck across town after a full moon and have to make your way home in your birthday suit. He also has a bit of an ego on him, but not in the way one normally would think. His ego drives his motives, but it doesn’t make him selfish. He notices others needs, for example if a friend is down about something, Dom will jump to help believing they came to him because he’s the only one who can help.
The boy also has an issue with thinking before acting. This can, and will, get him into a lot of trouble. Most times this is brushed off as part of his charm, he says what he thinks, doesn’t hesitate when something needs to be done… but sometimes this can get him into trouble… like hitting on someone elses girl or taking a risk that ends up with him suffering injury. It’s probably what will kill him eventually but so far he’s been lucky.
And yes, some may call him a slut, but he just wants to have fun, sex is fun. Is it his fault that he’s hot and people want to be with him?
Domino can shift into a mountain lion. As with all other weres he’s compelled by the power of the moon. He’s pretty good at shifting when he wants to, though sometimes if he focus’ TOO much he’ll sort of psych himself out and can’t change. He also has a lot of issues controlling himself when he’s real emotional, mad, sad, scared, all the ‘big bad’ ones tend to make him change. One time, which was the closest he felt to being embarrassed, he couldn’t control it was when he was making out with a girl. Fortunately it was friend of the family who was also a were, but it did sort of make his mother realize that a special school might be a good thing.
In human form he’s pretty normal, but does have slightly enhanced senses, smell, night vision and hearing- better than human but not as good as if actually shifted. He also has fantastic balance.
*If you ask Dom he will say he’s good at everything*
- Domino is very musically inclined. He taught himself how to play the guitar and took piano lessons when he was younger.
- Sings and writes music.
- Speaks French and Italian
*If you ask Dom he has no shortcomings, but…*
- Driving – He just doesn’t. Uber’s or gets rides around or just walks.
- Admitting fault – His ego just doesn’t let him, if he does then what he did must have been HUGE.
There is actually very little about Domino that he won’t share with people. But a big part of who he is, even he doesn’t know… his father. He has no memory of the man who helped give him life and his mother won’t talk about him (and what his sisters might remember they don’t either).
Who has he slept with? Who won’t he sleep with? What’s up with him and that werewolf? Is it really a cat and dog thing? Have then done it as lion and wolf? Does that even work? How do so many people like him, it has to be a trick right?
Born in Hideaway Cove, FL, Domino is the middle child and only son of his mothers brood of 5. With two older sisters and two younger, Domino learned fast that women are strange and peculiar creatures. He was the only boy in a house full of women. Domino’s dad was never in the picture, and his step father passed away when he was five after his last sister was born, his mother never remarried again. He loved his step-father, or what he can remember of him but he never knew his father. His mother was a were and passed the gift/curse onto Domino.
The first full moon after he was born it was clear Domio’s life wouldn’t be the same. His older sisters had receive the curse from their mother so by the time Dom got his, everyone was an old hat dealing with baby were’s. Growing up Domino found himself constantly being encouraged to change by his sisters. His mother would come home to find him sitting there with ribbons pinned in his fur and doll dresses (then real dresses as he got bigger) on. As much as she tried to put a stop to it, she was a single mother who worked two jobs to support her litter. She was a great role model for Dom.
However, the lack of parental supervision did mean that Domino did have a lot of freedom. While he tried to make good choices, he did end up in the hospital more than once with a broken bone of fracture because he’d tried to do something stupid and paid for it. As he hit his pre-teen years Domino started to notice girls, and boys. He didn’t think anything of it, he was starting to hit puberty and certain things were becoming more obvious. The fact that he was ‘supposed’ to be more attracted to girls never even clued into him. All people were interesting and it didn’t matter their gender.
He managed to make his way through high school at Hideaway Cove High, and met a werewolf named Adri. She was cute and flirty like him. They ended up bonding over the mutual love of musicals and bad reality TV. They gossiped and shared stories and tips on what boys and girls liked in bed. It was a strange relationship, but it worked for them. They each dated other people in High School, while also attending lessons at The Adam Foundation. During the full moons the two of them would run around the woods together and, on the nights that neither of them had someone else in mind, would hook up after the invigoration of the change.
They stayed friends after school, Dom attempted his hand at college, but only lasted a semester before getting a part time job at Bob’s. He spent his off hours writing music and trying to perform at open mic nights. Until he turned 21 it was hard to get into the bars to perform, but he was always there for Karaoke night at the Grub. When he turned 21 he celebrated with Adri and his friends at The Well, and was so charming that when he found out they were hiring he managed to get hired on by Gabriela (really, she saw how people responded to him and just knew they would buy more drinks from him than some of her other candidates). Two nights later he started and tips have been good enough for him to get a place to share with his BFF Adri. Yes, they have separate rooms and no, it’s not strange when they have someone over.
