180 lbsHair color:
Lean, corded and appealing. That was at-least the way his first romantic interest described him. Since then, he hasn't really paid much attention to it. He has paler tone of skin then many people, though this is likely due to growing up in Scotland during his earlier life. OTHER INFORMATION:Orientation:
He's always said he'll try anything once. Just avoid Scat.Goals:
To Help other 'shifter' mutants control their powers. Publish the long term book he's been writing (Seriously, he's totally past the first page!). Finally save his father from the man's own insanity, one way or another.Wealth Level:
Paid Teacher at Xavier's? (Not sure the level you'd consider that.)Personality:
He's talkative, friendly and seems like a genuine nice guy. He jests often, can be sarcastic, but has often been described as simply enjoying the sound of his own voice. A lot of it is his attempts to be outgoing, and an inner social nature he has.SCHOOL INFO:Classes Taken or Taught:

Ray hates this terminology for his powers, but as a rare and more limited shifter it best fit. He has the ability to change into a wolf, or as some joke, a werewolf at will. Both transitions have a huge effect on his mental and physical characteristics. Despite the appearance change, along with his monstrous claws and fangs, that is where the resemblance to the lycanthropes of legend end. The moon has no effect on him, Silver poses no more a threat then it would to anyone else and for the most part he retains his humanity while in his alternate forms.Healing Factor:
Though not on par with the likes of Wolverine, Ray does have an extremely accelerated rate of healing. He can heal in minutes what takes others days, hours what takes weeks, and weeks what takes years. His aging is slowed somewhat, but not greatly. Yet due to this he is highly resistant to poisons and disease.Increased Senses:
Even in his ‘normal’ form, Ray has increased senses of Olfactory and greater eyesight. In his wolf forms, it becomes very superhuman. Able to perceive things with animal accuracy, and even capable of viewing things in the infrared spectrum. With a mix of these, he can greater perceive someone's intentions, including helping him discern if someone is lying.ADVANTAGES:Cool Headed:
Perhaps the hardest thing for The Professor to teach him in the beginning. His emotions were all over the place in the past, but since he's learned to keep calm and collected even in dire situations.High Pain Threshold:
The beatings from his father had him use to pain from a very early age, even before his powers ever even thought about surfacing.Congenial:
He's always been a people person. Good conversation even in rough company, he's easy to talk to and usually pretty easy to get along with.DISADVANTAGES:Emotional:
He's done good curbing the emotional roller coaster he is, but sometimes it does come out. Particularly with stressful relations between friends and loved ones.The claws and Fangs:
Even in human form, he has elongated nails on his index fingers. Ones that highly resemble, and yes, are claws. He also has elongated canines, this makes it hard for him to mask that he's a mutant in certain situations.Cocky:
He may be calm, but he's also more then a bit full of himself at times. Possibly more prideful then cocky, but that doesn't change the perception people often get.SKILLS: Science!:
He's a biology professor, and has a bachelors in general science. He knows some things.Kick Boxing:
He started studying it shortly after his mother got him away from his abusive father. It was meant as a safety net to let him believe nothing like that would happen again, but he quickly took more of an interest. He's professional level by this point.Religious History:
His father's obsession, mixed with his own exploration since their separation has made sure he's picked up more then a few things. HISTORY:
Raymond's mother was a sixteen year old girl on a high school paid trip to Europe when she and his father had met. Craig Sinclair wasn't the celebrated Reverend he is now. No, he was a man still just coming into his own within the ranks of the church. Some seen it as a shame when his father and this young American student first started to become involved. It was a short fling, and one no one expected to have the consequences that it did. But during their time together, Ray was conceived. It wasn't until after his mother, Lily, returned home that she learned she was pregnant.
Lily's parents were not supportive in the least when they discovered. They cast her out on her ass, but she managed to find her way back to Scotland. It was there Craig agreed to take their child, so long as no one ever knew the truth. So it was then he adopted the boy, and shortly after giving birth to him Scotland, his mother's Visa ran out. She was deported back, but left Ray there with his father. Little did the girl know this was perhaps the worst thing she could have ever done for him. In his son's eyes, Craig viewed the worst in himself. The time he slipped, the weakness in his heart. That taint, as Ray grew this came out on him. And often.
By age six, Craig frequently beat Ray and did all he could to convince the boy that he had sin in his heart. Sin that he must cleanse and relinquish. This dragged on until Ray was ten, when his mother came back to Scotland for her son. She was a respected professor in the US by this point, and sought to make a family with Craig and her son. The heartbreak and torment that ensued when she witnessed what had been happening to her own son nearly killed her. On the books she was still his biological mother, and despite Craig having adopted him, she had never given up full custody. So in the dead of the night she took him away, and warned Craig that his 'secret' would come out should he ever come after them.
Ray adjusted well to his mother, but the nightmares persisted along with a fear of his father coming back. His mother did what she could to try and make him feel safe, enrolling him in self defense classes as well as a number of sports. He seemed he would do fine, until just after his sixteenth birthday when his father -did- come back after him. It seemed the anger he held toward Raymond was also an obsession, and during a heated argument with his mother, the Reverend called her a demon in the flesh. He accused her of seducing him, and now doing the same to their son. In an act of passion he killed Ray's mother, setting off the first sign of his sons powers.
Ray transformed into a wolf and lost control, attacking his crazed father. He doesn't remember what all happened, nor how he got to where he was next. But when he awoke he was in the medical ward at Xavier's School. It was here he became one of the first of Xavier's students. He learned well under his mentor ship, but at age 20 and a lot of discipline later, he decided he needed time to truly understand himself. It was here he took a road trip, nothing but him and his bike as he searched for some sort of enlightenment. While perhaps one of the best choices he's made, it was also quite a painful one. Not just for leaving what had become his home, but because of what he'd find along the way.
Two years in, Ray had done a lot of soul searching. Though mostly in seedy bars trying to drown away the guilt of leaving, and the pain of wondering what he'd done to his father during his power's awakening. Eventually he tried to look the old man up, but all his digging did was alert his father to the presence of his son. The Reverend came to his son then, accusing him of being possessed by the devil himself. His father, now a wealthy man, had an entire contingent of guards ready to shoot his son at first notice. There was a small scuffle, but Ray managed to knock his father unconscious and escape with only a few bullet wounds. Nothing his healing factor couldn't take care of.
It was 4 years later that Ray finally found his way back to the school. He no longer felt anger toward his old man anymore, not just pity. It took some time, but he managed to get a position at the school using the degree he'd finished while on the road. Since then he's stayed, feeling this and this alone is where he belongs. Teaching the younger mutants at the school, and being here for whatever he's needed for in The Professors eyes. To him, his real father and the man that saved his life.
