Nathaniel Parker Owens "Nate"
[b/]Age:[/b] 46, looks 36Species:
Son, Dad, Pro Extreme Sports Enthusiest, Bar owner, Hunter
Extreme Sports skills:
As a professional hunter, Nathaniel can be known to work with a various selection of guns, knives, swords, bows. He is old school, just like his teacher. He believes the chase is half the fun. Hard work, makes him feel like he's accomplished something. He stays fit (Has to with his career in extreme sports) and is always on the move. He relies heavily on his Lycan abilities to aid him in tough situations.
All lycanthropes can shift into their beast form. In general, this is a very painful process where tissue and flesh is torn asunder, bones cracked and re-melded, and muscles reshaped. There is both a pure beast form and a half-beast form (which would seem like an actual man-wolf that most think of when they picture a werewolf). Even the regular animal form is much larger than regular beasts of that kind – wererats turn into rats the size of dogs, werewolves turn into wolves the size of small ponies, ect. New lycanthropes (those who are infected but have not yet shifted) are unable to shift until the rise of a full moon.
All Lycanthropes upon their first change are gifted with increased and enhanced physical strength. The average lycanthrope can lift a car over their heads or punch right through a wall clear to the other side.
Lycans are amazingly resilient, compared to humans. Beatings, gunshot wounds, and blades don't seem to faze them much. Very simply, a lycan can take far more punishment than a human could hope to, and remain vertical and dangerous.
Lycanthropes are faster than both humans and vampires. They are just simply quicker and better. No mind tricks, natural ability. With this speed comes a natural animalistic grace to their movements. Quick, agile, liquidly graceful. They are so fast that they can appear to be a blur.
Lycanthropes can hear and smell with crystal clarity at such a heightened state that even the newest werewolf is able to smell fear, lust, and even the small subconscious olfactory scents associated with lying. They may not be able to recognize what it is they are scenting, but its there. Lycanthropes can even sense and smell when another of their kind is near. For group minded animals, they are able to get a scent of pack, pard, or rodere on the newcomer if they're part of the local population and if the shifter themselves is part of that group. Other than the familiar smell of the pack for example, shifters can scent another lycanthrope, but generally they aren’t able to tell the species.
Lycanthropes heal themselves at a very advanced rate in most situations. This enhanced healing comes into play except when it comes to wounds inflicted by silver and lycan/vampire teeth and claws.
Fast Shift to Animal
Shape-shifting is usually a painful and slow process, where skin is split in a wash of clear fluids and bones are broken and reshaped. A lycanthrope with the fast shift to animal ability is able to change nearly instantaneously into his beast form, without any side effects such as pain or dizziness. The ability to shift quickly from animal and back to human is a very rare combination.
Fast Shift to Human
This ability works the same as the above fast shift to animal, except it is from the beast form to human form. The ability to shift quickly from animal and back to human is a very rare combination.
Shield the Call (Strong Alpha Only) (Yes, He is an Alpha. Though he may not be as strong in this ability as he is in others)
Shielding the call of a Master Vampire is a matter of dominance, a competition of wills. Leaders of large lycanthrope groups in our chat will automatically be assigned this power with a certainly that the use of it will succeed. However, other strong alpha lycanthropes can possess this power as well, though it is not certain they will succeed.

Nathaniel is a fairly muscular, Athletic build. He constantly stays in shape, because he rarely sit down to take a break. His has short to medium White hair. It was this way from the time that he was born. His eyes are pale and his skin is as well from lack of pigmentation. Thus, in his lycan and wolf form, his wolf is white.
Nate usually wears a red leather jacket, black leather pants or black jeans and what ever else he finds comfortable that day. When he doesn't have on boots, he's wearing rollar blades, or he's on a skateboard with proper shoes and a helmet. Personailty:
Nate is pretty up beat. He likes to have a good time. Nate is pretty much...a big kid. Of course, of everything in his life, he enjoys his family life most of all. He is pretty protective of them and will do what it takes to keep them save. Despite his attempt to stay on the up and up, Nate does have a dark side to him, not always in his ability to control.History:
Nathaniel Parker Owens was born to a loving mother. His father was rarely a part of his youth. At the age of ten, Nathan witnesses and even that couldn't possibly happen, but it does. On one of the rare ocassions that he and his father are bonding, a father and son camping trip, a large animal comes out of the woods and kills his father. Nathaniel did the only thing he could and ran for help.
Returning to the scene, there is nothing. No blood, no body, no sign of anything. For years, his mother told him that what he had seen was not real. But, it didn't stick. He was haunted with nightmares of what he had witnessed. Many thought he was crazy. Still, no one ever found a trace of his father again. Nathan knows what he saw. From that moment on, he became completely inthralled in the paranormal.
As a teenager, he became interested in sports. And despite his experience in the woods, he took up hunting as another sport, along side one of his mother's brothers. As he aged and became a man, his sport of hunting went beyond average game. He went after something bigger. he went after the monster who took his father from him. He was playing a dangerous game and he didn't know all of the rules. It landed him in a heep of trouble, which lead to him being bitten by a creature with hauntingly familiar eyes. The werewolf who bit him...he later learns is none other than his own father. He is alive and he is changed. The call of the wolf has completely taken him over. More so, the wolf seeks to dominate and drag Nate in to it's Pack.
The call of the wolf is something that Nate fights, daily, among other things. It has taken him years or daily...torment of training himself and disciplining himself to get himself to where he is today.
When he isn't hunting, he is deep in professional extreme sports, or gracing his sports bar with his presence. First and foremost, however, is his family...including the man who took him under his wing and taught him how to fight the very beast inside of him.
