Student Character Sheet:
Name: Johan (pronounced Yo-hahn) Wolf
Johan has yet to go through puberty, but he's already at a height of 5'6," still intending to grow all the more. Though possessing a thin build that appears delicate at first, he is in fact heavy, dense in bone and lean-built muscles (making him quite heavy to heave around), making him very strong for his age. However, he is no athlete. His strength is built from years of hard labor for his family and family friends on odd jobs, most of which are blue-collared.
His skin is fair due to little contact with the sun, and his hair is a shade of platinum blonde that often enough people mistaken it for white (and if being in the sun does lighten hair, it WILL be white in due time). His hair is often brushed back with a callused hand, the short ends often sticking up in a random cowlick-like fashion. With his hair pulled back it's easy to see those set of sharp gray eyes, whose color contrasts to his fairer features. Despite the sharpness his eyes do possess, his eyes themselves are his most outstanding feature. Clear and crisp, upon looking into them you are drawn in, like windows to his soul.
His usual everyday clothes are thin fitting v-neck long sleeves of cool or neutral colors, tucked into a hardy pair of carpenter jeans, the faded black material now a worn dark gray. Alongside that he always has on a set of suspenders, colors and patterns varying for no particular reason, and are worn usually in the incorrect way. As for footwear the weather matters. If cold it's his trusty pair of brown weather-resistant boots, if warm, a set of broken in black-leather sandals.
He wears a family crest around his neck that hangs from an aged black chain, the plate adorned with the imprint of a howling wolf. It was an inherited gift from his late grandfather Logan, a man who he admired and still admires in memory. The other would be a wind-up pocket watch, its silver chain peeking out of his left pocket. It's nothing special; in fact, it's a piece of junk that Johan found chucked in the trash. After fixing it he uses it to tell the time, and only that.
Weapon of Choice:
By nature Johan is no fighter and would rather protect, but his weapon of choice is the basic fighting staff (like that of martial arts). It's his treasure... at least to him. So, I guess there is need for a story, but, I'm not going to indulge. The most that will be said is that it relates to some things in the past, and his late grandfather who had taught him how to use it after one particularly vivid happenstance.
Johan's current staff is just a foot and a half taller than the boy and is made of a hardy wood that is a dark brown, with blunted ends from daily use and with the barest of nicks from bumping. He casually uses his staff like a support, but it is handy indeed. Each end is stained just barely with traces of dirt, grass, but he himself makes sure to treat and clean it at the end of the day. He himself "burned" his initials into the center of the staff as an impromptu "reference" of where he properly gripped it. But that's not the only staff he possesses.
His grandfather's staff on the other hand lies in wait for when he himself is tall enough to wield it, made of a very heavy core with a matte black lacquer, its ends of blunted metal. That one is more than two heads taller than Johan and thus, too big for the boy to use. He inherited his late grandfather's "walking stick," which he keeps tucked away.
He's cool, but not cold. He's quiet, but not mute. Perhaps it's his late grandfather's influence to blame for his apparently silent nature, when in reality, he can be incredibly talkative with the best of friends. But really, he's just the type of guy who does more thinking than talking, and more listening than yapping, often with a smile that could be read as good-natured or mocking. He's not conniving or the type to cause trouble: he merely wants to enjoy life. Whether it be quietly exploring, or enjoying a good tune on the radio, he's the type to do just that. In a group of friends he's the straggler, just a few feet away from the talkative bubble that would be his pals, just watching and enjoying.
His intentions are good, and with a set of hard working parents, aunts, uncles, and family both of blood and sweat who are all good examples of what he too wants to grow into. Amiable and the type to smile rather than frown, or at least look nonchalant he's, well, a nice guy. With friends he opens up a bit more, though, more than anything anyone who knows him well enough know.
Johan usually goes with whatever flow is calmest, until the flow itself is disrupted by something. Arguments, tension and such he will walk off from if deemed too much trouble. He tends to also walk off from many troubles, and walk away from any situation that in his opinion will only endanger or hurt him. He is also prone to disappearing. This leaves people to wonder where he does in fact escape to, only to find him once more back in their presence. Though people call it a phenomenon, he just knows how to be quiet on his feet.
However, there is something that Johan's ashamed of: his temper. Though naturally calm and collected, every human being has their limits. If someone somehow, in some extremely rare case, by the alignment of the wrong planets on the worst of days is CAPABLE of making him snap... they are in for a horrific treat.
There is a reason why he is a Wolf.
1) He always uses his staff like a support, and often it is an extension of his self. Meaning, he may use it for things like vaulting, reaching for things, and even as an extension of a poking finger. It may seem obscene, but at the very least the person using said fighting staff is sincere.
2) He loves all sorts of raw fruits and vegetables due to his family's heavy consumption of meat and potatoes (one can grow tired of such a diet), and especially loves biting into the crisp skin, bursting with juices and flavors that stay and leave the palette. But he especially loves apples. His favorite are Ambrosia due to their crisp and refreshing sweetness, while his second favorite is the Fuji.
3) He is an INFJ.

To me anyways.

Though, my character sheet is long, which goes against what I've just said. Heh.
