He's a bit of a terse companion, often coming across as resigned when he's rejected in any capacity. However, he's quite expressive as you get to know him. He's philosophical, never dull in a conversation and always having some other viewpoint to contribute to conversations. He has a way of helping his companion connect with their emotions and express themselves more openly, sometimes more eloquently as they become used to experiencing their true selves.
He is a tall, lean companion with very obvious muscles. He takes on the form of a bipedal jackal with short fur along most of his body. He has a dark grey-brindle coloring, his tall ears pierced with golden hoops. His fur along the back of his neck is shaggy, often catching leaves in changing seasons. His eyes are a strong amber color with a piercing quality. He often wears loose pants and a claw necklace, though the rest of him is often bare.
Salir, Male Jackal Anthropoid
This particular group of Anthropoids were once Human Spirits. They know as well as we do how much human life can bog you down, as well as the trouble with society and the expectations that come with it. They go through a sort of reincarnation process, retaining their memories of life and becoming an Anthropoid of an animal that represents them at their core. They are generally open, honest companions who can give valuable insight to aid you in making decisions or deciding on new paths for your practice.
As a whole, the Anthropoids have found peace in their current state. Predator and Prey have an understanding and respect each other, finding ways to balance themselves in their culture and work with each other's differences. They are more accepting and tend to be easygoing because of this. They are not perfect by any means, but they are at least able to tolerate the imperfections better than they could in life.
Bringing an Anthropoid into your keep often helps you expand your views of a situation. They promote patience and tolerance above all else, encouraging their companion to make the fair choice rather than the selfish one at times. They can give excellent counsel, and are often skilled with Empathy to help you understand where the other side in a situation comes from. They are very grounding companions by nature, and you'll often find that they help you cope in harsh times.
