Prospect in the Lunar Crypt biker gang
Dev stands at approximately 5'11" tall when he isn't slouching and has all the presence of a delinquent. More often than not his expression is bleak or uninterested which somewhat sours his otherwise youthful good looks and potential charm. A mess of medium length dark hair that he somewhat haphazardly ties back in a half up do in conjunction with his constant 5 'o clock shadow lends to his wild and wayward appearance. His body is lean and lithe but not cut which makes him both deceptively fast and strong to those who choose to underestimate him. He has a jagged, nasty looking scar marring the right side of his neck that, judging by his overall attitude, suggests he started a fight that he simply could not win. He attempts to ascribe to the bad boy/tough guy persona but it still doesn't quite seem to entirely suit him if you look hard enough.
His outfit of choice is often comprised of his prized leather vest with the Lunar Crypt insignia patched onto the back, a simple t-shirt, jeans and heavy black boots meant for riding motorcycles. It also isn't uncommon to find a grease stain somewhere on his clothes or skin. He has pretty simple tastes all in all.
Raised in the slums of Tenderloin and rank with the scent of misguided youth, to say that Dev can be a handful is an understatement. Although he is well out of his teenage years there are times when he behaves as though he is still going through his rebellious phase, but when faced with the senior members in the gang his attitude receives a bit of a tune up. He was taught his place in the pecking order when he was younger and he isn't quick to forget it, the scar on his neck being a constant and glaring reminder of what happens should he decide to behave out of turn or try and jump ranks. He is fiercely loyal to the Lunar Crypt since they are the only family he has known and the only thing giving him purpose presently. He has been entirely steeped in their values and beliefs both good and bad but in spite of all of that he is still treated as the low man on the totem pole, almost as though he isn't really one of them regardless of his best efforts.
When he is alone however Dev takes pleasure in the simple things such as wide open spaces, sleeping out under the stars or sitting in a rotted out old lazy-boy in front of a campfire knocking back a couple of beers, listening to the crackling of the wood as it burns or the soft tones of music from a cheap radio. It is in these uncomplicated moments that he truly begins to feel like himself and allows some of the bravado to fall away. He is somewhat of a lost soul but he has yet to truly realize that. His past was not a happy one and while he has allowed that to shape him into who he is today, there is an undertone about him that speaks of a desire for some kind of change.
It takes time for him to trust and he isn't always the easiest to get along with, he's got plenty of broken parts but he is not entirely devoid of potential.
He gives off a wild, shifty vibe when he isn't pissing people off or irritating them with his petulant antics. It is evident that his life hasn't been easy and that he has hardened himself to compensate for it, but there is still a kernel of something soft and warm within him that he has sealed away within the depths of what may be a fragile heart. Only, one would have to be incredibly observant and patient to see it. At first glance he is very easily dismissed as a trouble maker who will never amount to anything.

--> None just yet
POTETIAL PLOT IDEAS
--> He could do with a moral compass or guiding hand to perhaps help him to realize his worth. Could be the beginning of something romantic or simply something as platonic as someone taking him under their wing.
--> His entire life is centered around the Lunar Crypts, but they are definitely trouble. I envision them running plenty of illegal magical items or substances for anyone willing to pay them enough, and Dev is heavily involved. He could easily get into trouble of any kind. (ie: arrested for someone's murder even though he didn't do it, getting caught in possession of drugs, someone attempting to get him to turn informant. The list is endless!)
--> Fellow gang member interactions if anyone is interested.
--> More will likely be added as I go along.
