Character Name: Ben Lockwood ([livejournal.com profile] werewolf_hacker)
Race: human/werewolf

History:
Ben Lockwood joined the Army right out of high school, completed Ranger training, and was serving a second tour in Afghanistan when his convoy was ambushed by insurgents. They tortured him for seven months, killed the other four survivors in front of him -- and infected him with lycanthropy. They proceeded to drive the wolf crazy, with wolfsbane over some moons (which forcibly and agonizingly kept him human), and by leaving innocents in his cell overnight on others after starving him for days. He thinks their plan was to eventually drop him into an American encampment on a full moon night, but before they could implement that scheme, he was rescued by the Special Forces and sent home.

He was terrified of himself, of what he'd do out in civilized society. But the idea of being institutionalized terrified him more, and the timing was such that he didn't have to tell anyone in authority, and they didn't find out before they medically discharged him. The wolf's personality (probably) calved off into a persona brought on by practically memorizing "The Jungle Book" as a young teen.

The angel trade never really pinged Ben's consciousness until he got back and found out that his parents, killed by a drunk driver while he was a POW, left him an angelus -- Guriel -- in a cage in his garage. Guriel was as crippled on the outside as Ben was on the inside, sporting a mutilated wing and a bad attitude. Exhausted and sick at heart, Ben gave the angel his binding ring and went back inside to kill himself. However, Guriel followed him in, and Ben let himself be talked out of suicide by the fact that the angel had literally nowhere to go that was safe from slavers. He offered Guriel a place to stay, and the three of them -- Ben, the wolf, and Guriel -- began feeling their way into some sort of relationship.

And now? Ben has found some kind of purpose in his life. The one major thing he is not okay with, after his experience, is keeping people in cages and torturing them -- and angels count as "people" in this context, for him, because he's not technically "people" either, right? He's freed two other angels, Ananchel, who runs the coffee shop he bought with her; and Toviel, whose ring he found in a pawnshop. He's also collected a wild angel, Kabniel, and his house has become a haven. He briefly had Mikhel, but that ended disastrously for everyone concerned -- and he gave Mikhel to Hannibal Smith, the only person on the planet Ben trusts to do right by him.

Part of this purpose entails, frankly, murder. He's killed several Hunters and has no compunctions whatsoever about killing more, especially if they come sniffing around his house. Ben is filled with rage and hurt and has focused it on stopping this injustice, sometimes in a brutal and bloody fashion.

The other part of his purpose entails making Guriel as whole as he can; the angel and his wolf (whom Guriel has named "Zev") have bonded incredibly closely, and the three of them form a tightly-knit core Pack.

EDIT, AND FYI:
Ben has scars. A lot of them. If you try to heal them, it may work -- temporarily. But they are demon-induced, and they will come back. Even if you're a Healer angel.
