College art professor
Rabi's ancestry must be something from the middle east: his skin is a smooth hazelnut color, his hair a deep brown black with a slight unnatural sheen of red through it. His features are sharp, with a straight and pointed nose, and a very wide and generous mouth that pulls into a grin full of white teeth. His eyes are a bright, inhuman amber, under thick but groomed dark eyebrows. His build is triangular, attractive -- except that he frequently has a harried, half-starved, too-skinny look about him, the shape of ribs vaguely visible under the skin, knees just a little bit knobby.
He could dress to cover it up, but instead, his style seems designed to show it off. maybe he's too skinny for the sake of fashion: those knobby knees poking out through the shredded knees of acid washed jeans, fragile wrists show through the close-fitted and worn out shirts he wears, collar bones sticking out where the necks of his sweaters have lost their shape. In the winter, some of it is hidden under the loose length of scarves, but in the summer, instead he ends up in battered t-shirts, the text on the front worn away to almost nothing.
His clothing almost looks like hand-me-downs, and maybe that's intentional. He is, after all, an artist.
Rabi has two faces: one of them comes off cheerful, flippant, sometimes a bit flighty, making friends easily, but without any real depth of feeling. The other is sharp-edged and sharper tongued, his words biting and honest and said with a smile that can make them meaner. Sometimes, these two faces crop up in the matter of one interaction, the sweetness of a compliment melting into something backhanded and sharp.
People have the impression of heat, the prickle of fire and metallic points. They get the feeling that nothing he says is real, and also the sense that he is restrained, like he wants to say more, do more, and even his biting comments are somehow less than they could be.
