- At a Glance -
Disregard whatever jaundiced view of chimera you may have, as the monochromatic creature afore you would not bear even the slightest resemblance to any Grecian mythology. Three wildly different species expressing characteristics with unparalleled synergy. Dazzling ebony fur with ashen portions and midnight striations and freckling, dark sclera with irises that cordoned faux-glaucoma, baggy casual attire that complimented his physique by concealing the finer points of musculature underneath a plethora of pockets and a pronounced null shirt whose embroidery pierced any obfuscating factors with the intensity of a superhero’s insignia. In spite of that, he’d appear marginally unassuming. One could be forgiven for drawing the ill conclusion that he was naught but a tall anthropomorphic hoodlum with axes to grind – up until he’d elasticate his limbs and zipline up the nearest edifice, flowing like a shadowy praetorian as he rebounded from rooftop to rooftop, and acting as a metropolitan surveyor.
- Primer -
The epitome of eccentricity and altruistic to a fault, Tahajin Grandville is just as peculiar as the abilities he possesses – not to mention that his very existence marks the end of an era and the schism of a family. Being born of two different groups, Tahajin was seen as repugnant even before his conception, yet the scorn shown by his elders did little to hamper his personality or his innate precociousness. Exhibiting mechanical proficiency that rivaled a technomancer, Tahajin’s first ‘invention’ was at the age of eight (a mobile device comprised of nothing but flexible OLEDs with no visible circuitry anywhere on the unit. Deemed ‘impractical’, it was thrown out and composted).
Silliness is as second-nature to Tahajin as is scientific savvy, and he does his best to flaunt it at every opportunity – though, as the years progressed, circumstance reduced his gregarious and extroverted nature, bringing rise to incredulity and apprehension. Nowadays, he holds fast to a fine veneer of bashfulness, but that’s easily swept away with a few hours of acquaintance, wherein his true disposition comes out in full force. One thing of note about Tahajin is how he values connections, no matter how raw. Despite there being absolute no trace of canidae DNA within him, Tahajin’s loyalty to his confidants and companions is unconditional and surprisingly resilient. Harm inflicted on a friend sparks a defensive zeal characteristic of the Grandville linage.
One of Tahajin’s favorite pastimes is collecting and parsing knowledge. While other children his age were busy thumbing through graphic novels or the latest tween narrative, Tahajin plunged face-first into the reference section – collecting all manner of factfinders and dictionaries (finding anatomy and meteorology particularly fascinating). Another topic that interested him was music, which led to acute audiophilia. Music became vital to daily function – even as a bulwark against insomnia. As music reproduction became better, Tahajin grew more and more jaded when it came to personal audio. After years of shelling out for the most luxurious headphones, he batted those expenditures away and attached speakers to his glasses - a near-invisible cord trailing from the frame to his ears. This was the very first augmentation made to his eyepiece. In terms of genre, anything is fair game. He has a rather eclectic taste – though overuse of profanity or ostentation (commonly referred to as base modulation) in any song starts to grate after a while. The same sentiments extend to his gaming preferences – which is why most of his collection is E-T rated and revolve around problem solving and analytics, with a dollop of cute now and again.
His mattershifting abilities and unfathomably malleable physiology didn’t surface until 2003 – and ever since then, Tahajin has been working on refining his versatile powers. Shapeshifting and modularity, elasticity and contortionism, durability, regeneration and medicinal repair of other organics, liquefaction, assimilation, solidification, extensive physical alteration/mechanization (with various limitations here and there such as the inability to swap phylums - to which he attempts to circumvent with hyper-adaptability or tap into any hues - save the black and white spectrum, etc.). Even that list fails to incorporate all that this possat can perform.
However, there are two disabilities Tahajin contends with (both related to the eyes), these would be his color perception deficiency and nearsightedness. Without his glasses, monochromacy sets in and Tahajin’s world falls to black and white and objects past two meters lose almost all of their definition. It’s one of the reasons his glasses are taut on his septum (and why they’re imbued with the possat’s own essence so the contour and morph with the rest of his body).

This took ages and two weeks of intermittent prodding but both Kyu and I are absolutely enamored with the result! Incidentally, if you check the previous 'Irreverence Sheet', this is starting to become an annual thing! For those who actually read the description: Hungry for more edifying paragraphs? Expanded, unabridged information can be found here!
P.S.: Just in case this didn't come across - Solid is essentially stretchy with the ability to form chintinous plates for protection and such. Think 'Mr. Fantastic' or 'Plastic Man', if you must! It's also the state I'm in naturally and at rest. :Y
