I really enjoy the stupid backstory me and my friend Linny came up with, in that he’s from a planet of incredibly condescending, passive-aggressive, and slightly xenophobic lizard people that just don’t seem to appreciate his talent for murdering things and talking in haiku. Being pressured into helping those poor, less intelligent humans and going to med-school by his parents just wasn’t as fun as running things in with a sword, so fuck that, he’s becoming an ASSASSIN.
Plus humans are pretty fucking terrified of him even with the mask off, which he feels he rightly deserves and does not get from his own people, who see him as more attractive and nonthreatening than he wishes they would. Therefore, it’s better to hang out with the humans. They see him for what he truly is:
and i’m still incredibly fond of the quill-hair because everything about him is murder, even his hair. As much as I legit love the white, springy hair other people have him with, all i can think about is him coming down with a case of hockey hair.
