Well, I think I nailed just about everything in the Subject line, but my character has a companion or two. One's name is White, who is the brawn to Lysander's brain, in a manner of speaking. He's not nearly as smart, but extremely artistic and very musical. He has white hair and white irises, white wolf ears and tail, and can switch from puppy to humanoid form. Hair reaches about shoulder-length, and he's a rather handsome 8 year old. He can't help but help people in need, and that means everybody that needs it. He'll give the shirt off his back.
Yes the character is premade, but Lysander isn't complete without White. Basically, they met by way of a magic school that couldn't suit Lysander's intelligence, and threw him out for showing the teachers up and being rude and cocky. White didn't drop out, but sneaks him onto campus during Recess to play with the other kids.
Usually found in either Germany or Britain. Also a good combination in post-apocalyptic roleplay.
