Full Name: Thomas O'Rua
Last Edited: 4:45 PM
Approved: 4:49 PM
Species: Sionnach Shi (Fae Fox)
Thomas is a thin looking irish male with the trademark red hair. He keeps it no longer than a few inches but generally doesn't do anything with it so it's tussled looking and wavy. He has green eyes which are mildly almond-like with a thin face. Tends to go clean-shaven if able. Despite stereotypes, he actually doesn't have any freckles. He will usually have a fox's tail and tends not to wear shoes if he doesn't have to.
- Red Fox
In this four footed form, Thomas is a rather typical red fox. Or at least he would be if it weren't for the three tails. He possesses the archetypical black socks and white underside with white tipped tails.
- Anthro Fox
In this form, Thomas is an anthropomorphic fox. Details such as whether he walks on his heels or exactly how many tails he has tend to vary and he will range from 'human with fur' (and muzzle, claws, etc) to 'fox that learned how to walk on its hind legs and hold stuff'. If he's on the spectrum closer to human, he'll probably be wearing clothes, but in any version he probably won't be wearing shoes.

Thomas is from a world that is very similar to earth in geography, culture, and mythology, but has a wide slew of divergences. Many of which are inconsequential or too random to bother mentioning, but one of the biggest is the variety of realms abutting it. Of particular interest here is the fae related realms where laws of nature tend to be reminiscent of the sidhe. These realms are largely hidden from the world by built up enchantments that are genetically inherited.
Born the fourth child to a family in Dublin, Ireland, Thomas is what those in a certain know call a changeling. One who for some reason or other did not inherit the enchantments keeping him blind to the various realms abutting earth. As a result of this, he lived a very strange childhood, frequently demonstrating his 'overactive imagination' and getting into trouble. As he learned how to get into the fae realms anchored near Ireland and back, the exploring phase of his childhood terrified his parents as he kept managing to find his way into locked places, locations closed to the public, and usually somewhere much farther from home than a typical child could travel.
For any grown 'mortal' this would have been insanely dangerous, but the laws of the royal fae court protect all children and thus while few of the locals gave him aide, none dared to cause him ill. Of all realms however, Thomas lived particularly near one in which the natural magic would always render him into a fox. As he continued to grow under this influence, it took hold in his very nature and he nearly became a fae fox at that age. If he had, the laws of Titania that protect mortal children would have immediately ceased and he would likely have found himself whisked away to never return home at all. What prevented this was nothing more than the chance interference of his parents who were becoming increasingly concerned by his imagination and frequent disappearances. After discussion, they took advantage of a job opportunity to move to Dublin, away from the wild influences they were convinced were harming their youngest son.
Luckily for Thomas' parents, the move seemed to work. Surrounded by so many 'mortals', the effects of the other world were hindered. Thomas did not become a fae fox and he stopped seeing other worldly things. This allowed him to be convinced he'd been making it all up and that it was time to grow out of 'that phase'. And so for a time Thomas became a mostly normal child, competing with his two brothers for time with the game system, tormenting his older sister with pranks, and making friends his own age at school. Even without the active fueling from exposure to the realms and their inhabitants, Thomas found himself drawn to artistic interests and spent his high school years surrounded by the cult that is known as 'drama club'. He fell in love with the stage and continued this interest even into college where he chose the absolute easiest degree he could.
It was in college where he had his next paranormal encounter. A noble of the fae, who enjoyed slumming it and the college atmosphere, was another member of the college drama club. This noble also had a history of seducing mortals for fun, temporarily lifting the blinding enchantments and exposing them to the full reality of the world. Such lovers tended to burn out after a time at which point they were no longer of interest and would be left abandoned to whatever fate remained for them. The drama club was prime hunting ground for replacements however, and it was here that Thomas fell prey. However because he had no enchantment to lift, the attempt to do so instead triggered the dormant magic in him from his childhood and rendered him finally into a fae fox. Delighted by this twist, the noble kept Thomas on as a pet of sorts, allowing him to continue his college career and visit home, althewhile teaching him the ways of the fae and magic and marking him as owned by his scent which was altered to be that of wild mint. This relationship went on for four years until a rival of the noble decided to take a petty revenge and cleared the glamour from Thomas' eyes, allowing him to see clearly what had been done to him. Horrified by the realization that he had spent the last four years in essential slavery and victim to mindrape, Thomas fled, returning to the city which offered some small measure of protection from the fae even as it now left him discomforted due to his own fae nature. It was from here that after a year, Thomas disappeared entirely from this world.
