Write about you: Cayde was born and raised in Zootopia. As a result, he's never set foot in his families native home of Purraguay, and barely knows the languages of his family's homeland. His grandparents (gpa 31 & gma 25 at time of move) moved to the city when his mother (then 5), Aunt (then 5) and Uncles (then 3) were very young, hoping to give their kits a better life in doing so.
While that hope was mostly fulfilled, the distrust amongst predator and prey was stronger in the city than it is today, making things difficult for the family of maned wolves as they built a new life for themselves in the blossoming utopia.
His mother, Emilia (then 16), eventually found love in the form of his father, Rodrigo (then 18), after he defended her from a herd of angry, closed minded prey who wanted to cause trouble for a young predator as she walked home from school. He courted her for nearly three years before finally asking for her paw in marriage from her father. They were married a year later (Emilia = 19, Rodrigo = 22). One year after that, Cayde was born, followed two years later by his other three siblings.
The growing family soon set up home in what would become Savanna Central and have lived there ever since.
As with everything, time brings change. Relations between predator and prey became more amicable during Cayde's childhood, though rough spots were bound to occur. Discrimination was still present, but more well hidden. That is to say.. Adults didn't sling speciest slurs at children directly. The same cannot be said for other younger mammals with bigotted upbringings.
As such, Cayde and his siblings went through the gauntlet of teasing, name-calling and other such childish abuses. Nicknames such as; Stilt Fox, Weed Wolf, and other unimaginative insults plagued them throughout school, but with their supportive family, the names didn't hurt as much after a while. Stilt Fox in particular, becoming a sort of badge of honor for Cayde, resulting in his own use of it to describe himself now and again.
After Highschool, Cayde spent most of his days at home, diving head first into the growing world of video games, as well as casual writing which didn't amount to much more than a few paragraphs or ideas, and reading.
Even though he was the eldest of his siblings, he found it hard to maintain work despite the urgings of his parents. As a result, he was late to leave the den, while his brothers and sister found their calling and moved into their own places.
It wasn't until his 23rd birthday that his Grandpa gave him an old pawlaroid camera, that he found a special calling for photography. Through the lens, he saw a whole new way to see the world. Certain views sparking inspiration in his mind and urging him to immortalize them with his unique view. His parents even helped encourage the new hobby by providing a 'dark room' for him to develop his films. Which was made all the easier with his siblings out of the den and on their own.
Eventually, and with his parent's encouragement, he found himself comfortable enough to sell his photos to anyone who thought they were worth paying for, which then evolved into commissioning his time and skill to anyone who'd ask.
Slowly but surely, through word of mouth, he built up a small clientelle of mammals around Savanna Central. He was able to then save up enough money he made from his photography and finally moved out of his parent's and into his own studio apartment by the age of 29 where he is today.
