[For the first time, Kaine notices the three statues surrounding the well. He isn’t intending to give them a second thought until he realizes the center statue looks, to an uncanny degree, like him. Upon closer inspection, the statue to the left, the one of the child, resembles Peter--stupid haircut, huge round-rimmed glasses, nerdy sweater, and all. That left the statue on the right, the one of the old man, being the only one he can’t place. Kaine steps towards it for a closer look. At first guess, the statue is of Richard Parker… or more accurately, of his brother, Ben, as it was too old to be Richard. But why? Why show him a statue of a man he never considered a father… or of a man he never considered an uncle?

Then, looking back at the previous two statues, it clicks: that isn’t Ben or Richard Parker; it's him. When he had been younger, whenever he had dared to think of what he might look like as an old man in the impossible event he should live to see old age, he had always imagined he would look differently than the statue’s depiction. He had imagined he would look as he had in the past, when he was still suffering from the degeneration, only with white hair and wrinkles. He stares at the statue, imagining it with a beard—which he had grown to hide the degeneration rapidly scarring his face, imagining the hair longer—shoulder length, as he used to wear it to conceal any remaining similarities to the man whose DNA he was created from. He imagines the scars that once crisscrossed his face. There's no doubt about it… that's supposed to be him.

This statue has his hair short, as he prefers it now, and though there are many lines that wrinkles his face, not one of them is formed by a scar. It is of just… an old man. And that fascinates him.

Without thinking, Kaine reaches up to touch the statue’s wrinkled face.

They're transported to the inside of a church, one that Kaine knows all too well. It was his church. The votive candles in the back are all lit, the only light coming from within the medium sized building. Natural light shone in through the stained glass windows on the sides and in the front of the church, the latter illuminating a figure standing behind the altar. It's an older priest with a large nose and pointed chin, who looks up at the group without the slightest hint of surprise that they're there.
]

You have been dishonest to those you would call your friends. It is time to confess your sins to them, Kaine.

[No. Not again. Kaine takes off at a sprint down the aisle towards the man, his veins practically popping out of his neck in rage.

The priest steps out from behind the altar.
]

Tell them of the innocents you killed.

STOP!

[The older man no longer stands beside the altar. In his place is a woman with short blonde hair, dressed for winter in her light blue jacket and yellow gloves. Attached to the waistband of her jeans is a police badge identical to the one Kaine currently clings to so tightly in his hand. On the left side of her face she bears a large burn scar... She bears the Mark of Kaine.]

Tell them of the woman you murdered. [As the woman speaks, she turns her head at an impossible angle, until her chin rests well behind her shoulder.]

NO! YOU DON’T GET TO BE LOUISE! NOT AGAIN!

[Only “Louise” is no longer there. She's replaced by a man identical to Peter in every way, only with longer hair. Well, longer hair and wearing the original Scarlet Spider costume.]

Tell them of the brother you tortured.

ENOUGH!

[Before the shapeshifting figure can once more transform into the Jackal, as it had the first time they met, Kaine tackles it throught the large stained glass window behind them.

They land in an alleyway in Houston’s Third Ward, nowhere near the church. In fact, the entire church has vanished... replaced entirely by the web-covered alleyway. And just like the church, Kaine is all too familiar with this location. He glances quickly to his left and sure enough, the dumpster is still overturned from when the male werewolf had ripped Aracely from her hiding place. The female werewolf’s red high heel is still on the ground not too far away… And he could smell the severed arm of the male werewolf that had been ripped off his body by his monster.

The monster currently beneath him, where the false Ben had been just seconds before. The creature is identical to Kaine in size and build… but that's where the similarities end. It has six beady red eyes, two where a humans would be, two directly above them and the final two directly above those. It has no teeth, only long, sharpened fangs; it’s upper and lower canines of particularly long length. Its skin is grey, and on both its chest and back it bears Kaine’s Scarlet Spider insignia almost like a tattoo… only the spider on its back wasn’t entirely for show. Two of the “tattooed” legs sprung out from beneath its back, large, spider-like legs that weren’t all too dissimilar to Doctor Octopus’ metal tentacles, only they were the same grey color as the rest of him.

With two of these legs, his monster stabs Kaine through the shoulders before tossing him up against the wall of the alley and rising to its feet. The creature is Kaine, but isn’t. It is the Other.
]

Kaine!

[Only then does Kaine notice Aracely. The closest thing he ever had to a daughter is trapped in the Other’s web, exactly as she had before, tears once again flowing down her cheeks from fear-filled eyes.]

This holds you back. [The Other motions to Aracely. Her braid flaps across her coat as she continues to struggle for her freedom, as she calls out to Kaine to save her.

Kaine lunges towards his monster, but the Other is quicker, and Kaine finds himself slammed against the alley wall once more, this time trapped there by the Other’s webbing.
]

I promised you greatness and all I asked in return was that you accept your true nature. That you embrace the Spider you truly are, and reject the Man you so pitifully attempt to be.

I wasn’t going to let you kill her!

[The Other glances over at Kaine's unwitting passengers, as if noticing for the first time they aren't alone.] Because I saw the truth. She makes you weak. They all do... even these new humans who dream of being spiders. Humans who, like Parker, fear the spider... reject it. Afraid to see what their gifts could truly offer.... Not like you. Yesssss.... they hold you back.

[Aracely's crying harder now.] Kaine! Do something! You always know what to do!

[Kaine's trying. He struggles. He tries to cut the webbing that trapped him with his stingers. Nothing he does brings him any closer to freeing himself from his monster’s web.]

But I will free you. I will remove what makes you weak. Starting with her.

[The Other wraps its hand around Aracely’s throat. Her eyes glow blue as she tries to talk her way out of it, to use her fear powers to repel the creature. It's as futile as it had been the first time around. She looks directly into Kaine's eyes as he continues to struggle against his bonds.]

Kaine! You’re supposed to be my champ—

[Aracely never finishes her sentence, as the Other’s stinger pierces her throat. Kaine screams, the sound only stopping to give way to choked sobs.

He failed her. Aracely is dead.

Only “Louise” was no longer there. She was replaced by a man identical to Peter in every way, only with longer hair. Well, longer hair and wearing the original Scarlet Spider costume.

“Tell them of the brother you tortured,” said “Ben.”

“ENOUGH!” yelled Kaine and unlike his last two exclamations, this was no empty threat. He had finally reached the altar.

Before the shapeshifting figure could once more transform into the Jackal, as it had the first time they met, Kaine tackled it out the large stained glass window behind him.

They landed in an alleyway in Houston’s Third Ward, nowhere near the church. In fact, the entire church had vanished… replaced entirely by the web-covered alleyway.

Kaine lunged towards his monster, but the Other was quicker, and he found himself slammed against the alley wall once more, this time trapped there by the Other’s webbing. It continued:

“I promised you greatness and all I asked in return was that you accept your true nature. That you embrace the Spider you truly are, and reject the Man you so pitifully attempt to be.”

“I wasn’t going to let you kill her!”

“Because I saw the truth. She makes you weak. They all do…” for the first time, the Other appeared to notice that they weren’t alone. It stared directly at Kaine’s unwitting passengers. “…even these new humans who think themselves spiders you’ve found.”

Aracely was crying harder now. “Kaine! Do something! You always know what to do!

Kaine was trying. He struggled. He tried to cut the webbing that trapped him with his stingers. Nothing he did brought him any closer to freeing himself from his monster’s web. The Other climbed its web and wrapped its hand around Aracely’s throat. Her eyes glowed blue as she tried to talk her way out of it, to use her fear powers to repel the creature. It was as futile as it had been the first time around.

Kaine! You’re supposed to be my champ—

Aracely never finished her sentence, as the Other’s stinger pierced her throat. Kaine screamed, the sound only stopping to give way to choked sobs.

He had failed her. Aracely was dead.

Childhood Friends




Aiden Carpenter █ pb: Aaron Johnson
Chase's best friend, though that wasn't always the case. In Middle School, Aiden was one of the few people who remembered Chase existed long enough to bully him. At the time he was also known for his fiery temper. One day, in 7th grade, Aiden's temper got the better of him and he slammed Chase's face into a water fountain. Chase lost a tooth and Aiden was nearly expelled, but Chase protected him. Grateful, Aiden forced Chase into friendship, something Chase fought at first but eventually gave into. Slowly the two brought out the best in each other. Aiden mellowed spectacularly, and Chase was the only one who could nip any potential outburts in the bud. Aiden became Chase's voice of reason. The two became so close they were considered a package deal--where one was the other wasn't usually far behind. They parted ways to attend different colleges, but Chase made frequent visits to NYC to visit him, and Aiden tried to return the favor, but it was hard due to lack of free time ad funds. Chase has had a crush on Aiden since the 6th grade, but knows nothing will ever happen, and he's also all right with that.



"The Game"-related



Mike Davenport █ pb: Omari Hardwick
The leader of Chase's old team in the game. Born in Philly, Mike devoted his time to his studies, because he wanted to make a lot of money. This led him to attend Colombia University, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude. After graduating, Mike stayed in NYC and got a job at a top financial firm and was quickly rising in the ranks when he firsrt heard of the game. Mike entered on a dare, and after winning said dare chose to stay on after realizing it would be a good way to pay off his student loans. Not long after he met and fell head over heels for his now fiancee, , to whom he's very devoted. Chase met him after their former teammate took off, and Aali nominated him for the position. At first the two didn't get along, but after Chase accidentally kill someone, it was Mike who helped him get back on his feet. Chase's been grateful ever since and the two grew to be rather close. Chase views Mike as a mentor and older brother figure, and always turned to him for advice.


Aali Rayner █ pb: Shahid Kapoor
The 26-year-old Egyptian-American is the reason why Chase was involved in "the game" in the first place. Aali left his Chicago suburb home at the age of 17 after getting into a fight with his devout Muslim parents when he openly declared his atheism and disdain for all religions, and chose to move to a big city in an attempt to alleviate his boredom, settling in NYC. There, he stumbled onto "the game" and quickly fell in love with the adrenaline rush and lifestyle it provided. He'd been a participant for five years before that fateful night he met Chase. He had been enjoying a post-game cigarette when a disgruntled opponent who had just lost his match (and his partners) appeared and shot him. Though the bullet merely grazed his arm, he was still injured and stunned when Chase found him and patched him up. The event caused him to stop smoking, and an unlikely friendship was forged between the pair. Every time Chase was up in NYC, he spared a few hours to go out for drinks with Aali, and occasionally Aali would travel down to Philly to see Chase. Though it was strictly against the rules, Aali would tell Chase war stories about "the game" and got him intrigued. When one of his teammates broke his contract because he was unable to take the stress, Aali asked Chase to fill in. Now that the team is officially split up, Chase still remains on friendly terms with Aali.

Damian Doe (goes by Damian Wayne)
Alias: Oracle
Age: 10

History
So doing it by the fireplace resulted in Miranda Tate (Talia Al Ghul) becoming pregnant with Bruce's child. She was unable to abort due to the martial law in Gotham City, so she made sure to hide he growing baby bump, eventually giving up the child to one of the city's many boys homes and she died without ever telling Bruce he was a father. When Bruce "died," the baby, named Damian by the staff, wound up living in Wayne manor, now the Thomas and Martha Wayne foundation for homeless boys (or something). Incredibly bright but lacking in social skills, Damian busies himself with creating a varied stock portfolio, familiarizing himself with computers and computer technology, and keeping tabs on the masked vigilante known as Batman. At the age of seven he figured out that the original Batman was, in fact, Bruce Wayne, and spent the next three years examining every nook and cranny of the manor. Eventually he discovers the piano code to the batcave, and as he was examining said batcave, John Blake, the current Batman, discovers him. Through much blackmail (and talking Blake out of a bad situation), Blake finally relented to allow the child to help him carry on Bruce Wayne's legacy, but in a strictly support capability. So Damian spends his nights under Wayne manor being the voice in Blake's ear, or updating the computer's now antiquated systems. Damian currently has a hunch that Bruce Wayne is still, in fact, alive, but doesn't want to tell Blake until he's certain.

Personality:


Random Facts:
- Was put in the room that was formerly Bruce Wayne's bedroom by chance. When he realized what it once was he went about spooking off all of his roommates until no one would want to room with him. He currently has the room to himself.
- Found a dog wandering the grounds and decided to keep it. The man who runs the orphanage tried several times to make him part with the dog, but relented when Damian agreed to pay rent for him, as well as completely financially support the dog. Named it Titus Andronicus.
- Numbers come naturally to him, so when he was 7 he bothered the man who ran the orphanage to help him open a stock portfolio. He now has enough money saved away to rent a modest-sized apartment in the city, but as he knows no one will sell to a minor, he stays at the boys home.
- As he doesn't understand people, he's surrounded himself with technology and spends his days taking it apart to learn how it works.
- Goes by the surname "Wayne" much to everyone's chagrin. People have been telling him since the day he decided to use it that it's tacky and in bad taste and not to do it, but he doesn't listen. He's currently the only one who calls himself that.

Trucy's Memory on Phoenix's Cases:
Between being Phoenix being disbarred and the start of Apollo Justice, Trucy didn't learn much about Phoenix's cases while he was still a lawyer. It was just too hard for Phoenix to think back on "the good old days," and Trucy was tactful enough not to ask. However, through his friends she did learn bits and pieces of old trials, but she doesn't have any sort of detailed knowledge on any particular case--the most she'll remember is "and that's the time Uncle Larry almost got convicted of murder" or "...and then Wright proceeded to cross-examine a parrot".


Relationships
- Miles Edgeworth - To say Edgeworth wasn’t pleased to learn about his childhood friend’s disbarment was an understatement: Edgeworth stormed into the newly formed Wright Talent Agency a few weeks after the incident and argued with Phoenix (well it was a one-sided argument, anyway) over how stupid a mistake he made. He would have yelled some more if Trucy hadn’t come out and stunned him into silence (and a near heart attack) by showing him Mr. Hat. Over time the two reconciled (well Edgeworth accepted it, more or less). Edgeworth has since become Chief Prosecutor and spends most of his free time lecturing in law schools, though he stops by whenever he has free time (which lately has been rare), and aided Phoenix with his little project of creating the Jurist system. He’s personally groomed Kay Faraday as his successor. Wears glasses now and has slightly longer hair.
- Larry Butz – Phoenix couldn’t get rid of Larry if he tried, unfortunately. Upon Phoenix's disbarment, he frequently stopped by to try to make Phoenix feel better before getting distracted by yet another girlfriend. Larry continued to make occasional appearances at the Wright Talent Agency after whatever girlfriend of the week he was with dumped him. One time Larry managed to find himself in a spot of trouble yet again, and Phoenix had to refer him to Kristoph to get out of it. Trucy rather likes Larry and the amusing stories of woe he tells every time he shows him. Hasn’t seen him in about a year.


- Maya Fey - She used to come down often to hang out with Phoenix enough to frequent Eldoon’s Noodles when Guy’s father was still running the stand, so Trucy got to know her pretty well. However, within the last three years or so she hasn’t been able to come down from Kurain Village as she’s been busy with being Master of Kurain. (Miss Cleo of the Ace Attorney world)
- Peal Fey -

- Kay/Maya/Ema – Yatagarasu?

Personality; Whenever you come across Trucy, 99% of the time she will be smiling. That’s because she tends to look on the bright side of everything, from abandonment to murder. Some might say that she looks on the bright side a little too much; that she’s ditzy or naïve. However, there’s more to her than meets the eye. She was born with the power of perception, and can easily tell when people are lying to her. She also comes from a family of performers, and as a result is very driven and focused when she needs to be. From years of living with Phoenix she’s developed this sort of con man personality, saying one thing but meaning another for effect. But there’s no deep reasoning for why she acts the way she does--she simply sees no point in being serious all the time and enjoys having fun in life.

The more you look at Trucy, the more you see how large her heart is. When her father abandoned her when she was 8, rather than allow herself to wallow in self-pity, she chose to instead help Phoenix come to terms with his disbarment and fall from grace. She kept him sane throughout the next 7 years, and looked after him in many aspects the way a parent would a child. Despite their partially reversed roles she never stopped being a child. She never lost her youthful outlook on life, despite how easy it could have been to do so. When Apollo entered her life, Trucy quickly latched onto him, providing him the support and guidance he needed. And just like Phoenix, she kept him sane whenever he felt like he was slipping or losing his confidence. She always knew what to say to keep him going and help him find the truth.

But deep beneath that happy exterior, there’s a damaged little girl. A lot of bad things have happened to her in her short life, things that carry heavy emotional baggage. Trucy essentially aided her father in abandoning her, and both her mother and grandfather, to her knowledge, were murdered. None of this is stuff one can just brush off, and she isn’t any different. However, she refuses to allow it to define who she is, and through the years has come to terms with a lot of it (or rather has tried to).

As a side effect of her unique upbringing, she has a somewhat skewed moral compass. She sees no problems in being friends with mobsters, aid her father in essentially cheating at poker, staging a self-kidnapping in a court of law to stall for time, or flat out stealing things from a crime scene. That isn't to say she’s a bad person—-she just generally wants to do the right thing, but for her, the way to go about doing the right thing never seems to be anyone else’s way of doing the right thing.

Samples;
Network Sample; Hi! I was just wondering if anyone has seen my panties. They're my absolute favorite and I can't seem to find them anwyehere. I really don't know what I'm going to do without them. I mean, I left them out on the balcony to dry and--

[There's a small pause as Trucy takes in her surroundings.] Wait a minute... This isn't my house. Oh well! One place is as good as another, right?

Anyway! If anyone sees my panties can they give them back? They're really important to me. Thanks!

Log Sample; Attendance at her show had been steadily growing since her court debut, when her magic panties made headlines. At the rate they were going they would soon have to cap attendance at the door in a few more performances. Trucy should have been excited about that, after all, she was getting the recognition that she had studied so hard for. She was an heir of Troupe Gramarye, the greatest magician troupe of all time; she lived for the stage. So just why was her heart seemingly jumping out of her chest?

She ran her thumb ran across her diamond-shaped brooch as she tried to force herself to calm down. Why tonight, of all nights, did she decide to get nervous? She’d been performing there for 7 years now, first on a weekly basis when the owner humored her and her dream, moving it up to nightly as she got older and proved her talent. She knew her act inside and out; there was nothing different about tonight from any other night.

Perhaps it had something to do with Apollo. Since he’d entered the Wright Talent Agency, she’d moved farther away from her true calling of magic and moved into the realm of defending. The two should have been two completely different occupations, but the way Apollo worked was another form of magic.

She glanced at the clock. One minute until show time. No time to dwell on why she felt the way she did, but more than enough time to shake it. She was a performer, whether it was on stage or in the courtroom, and she couldn't let her audience down. All those people out there, the ones she suddenly seemed nervous over, were there to see her show, and she couldn't afford to let a little stage fright slow her down. She pushed the butterflies back down into her stomach and pushed aside the curtain.

“Good evening, Ladies and Gentlemen. My name is Trucy Wright, Magician extraordinaire, and welcome to the Wonder Bar! For my first trick this evening...”

Damian Wayne
Alias:
The Crusader
Age: 24

Since Canon, a lot has changed in the life of Damian Wayne. After the return of his father, he stayed on with Dick Grayson as Robin, both to stay close to the father figure he had gained while his real father was lost through time, and to prove to his real father that Dick made the right choice and that he was worthy of the title of Robin. When he was 13, Dick went back to being Nightwing and he was finally able to work with his father. The two had a rocky start, but eventually the two learned to work with one another and become a good team. He stayed on with his father until Bruce suggested he adopt a name of his own, like the previous Robin’s before him. He took up the name and mantle of Crusader, and frequently teamed up with the various members of his family.

His relationship with Dick was strong during his formulative teenage years, but started to sour a bit when the two began to fight about the way Damian was running the Teen Titans, a group he had forced his way onto in the first place, but begrudgingly gained the respect of his teammates when, after a few disastrous first missions, he proved himself as a good leader. Their relationship strained more when Damian felt he was being abandoned for Koriand’r, the reason Dick went back to becoming Nightwing in the first place. Eventually Dick and Koriand’r married, and Dick temporarily retired following the birth of their child, Mar’i. Although fond of Mar’i, Damian couldn’t shake the feeling he was being replaced by a real child and as a result stays away from Dick.

He began to overcompensate the “loss” of his father figure by spending more time with his real father. Bruce, however, did not like being used as a crutch, and began keeping Damian at arms length, giving him responsibilities within Wayne Enterprises, and missions as the Crusader. Damian, clueless as he was, didn’t notice anything was wrong until recently, 6 months ago, Bruce took on a new Robin—whose identity Damian doesn’t even know—and seemingly stopped speaking with his son. The only way Damian can even contact his father is through e-mail, and even then it’s an iffy endeavor.

Then there’s his mother and brother. Talia, true to her word, made Damian an enemy of the house of Al Ghul and created a new son, whom she named Ibn Al Xu’ffasch. Unlike Damian, Ibn is seemingly embraced the assassin lifestyle and promises of being the next Alexander, and on Damian’s birthday for the last 5 years, Ibn without fail has attacked him, trying to remove the “blight” from his family. Every year Damian sends him back to mother with his tail between his legs.

Damian and Drake never had the best of relationships, but throughout the years they slowly improved. Damian finally accepted him as a member of the family around the age of 12, and for a while the two thought that their relationship was on the mend. However, it all came to an abrupt end thee years ago when, on a mission with the Teen Titans, Damian almost got Kon killed. The event was a freak accident, and Kon never blamed him once for what happened, but the idea of almost losing his best friend again was too much for Tim to bear. He needed someone to blame, and he blamed Damian. Damian, feeling guilt for the incident, let him do it. Although the two have since made up, their relationship has been forced cordiality at best.

The final bridge that Damian burned was his relationship with the Titans. He led the team for 5 years until the reborn Lian Harper shook everything up. When Lian entered, she tried to wrestle control from Damian, who she felt was “unfit” to rule. The politics lead to in-fighting, and Damian saw his control of the group slip through his fingers. He resigned when he believed he was no longer wanted and has never looked back, despite several Titans asking him to rejoin.

Colin is the only person left from his vigilante life that he still speaks to on a regular basis. In fact, he has been living with Colin for the past two years, when Colin wanted to be closer to Gotham University but couldn’t afford the rent. No matter what stupid things Damian seems to do, Colin remains supportive. Back when they first became roommates, he tested the limits of Colin’s friendship, determined to push him out of his life as quickly as possible so he wouldn’t be hurt again, but much to his surprise Colin pushed back and remained a part of his life. Because of this, Damian has become very dependent on Colin for stability, although he is incapable of seeing it as such.

Publicly, Damian has become a playboy and a daredevil, not dissimilar to his father’s image when he was younger. Unlike his father, however, he enjoys this persona, and it’s less of an act and more of a release. Or rather, it originally was a release. After his rough transition to adulthood, his experiences left him numb, and feeling like he was going through the world on auto-pilot. The rush of skydiving or with sleeping with the “it girl” of the week was originally enough to make him feel better for short periods of time, but the more he did it, the less he felt, until that no longer did anything. He became more and more reckless, trying to find something to make him feel real again.

Mentally, Damian is a mess. He feels alone in the world, but acknowledges that he’s alone of his own design, so he tries not to harp on his feelings of loneliness. His main concern is that he doesn’t feel human anymore and that his actions aren’t his own. He’s distressed that his life isn’t anywhere near where he wanted it to be, or even where he was told it would be and that he’s so numb he can’t even attempt to learn to like a normal life. He also doesn’t realize that help is closer than he thinks…

Many of you might not be familiar with who Daken is, so here are 10 short facts to help you get to know him.

1. Biologically, he's Wolverine's son. However, he wasn't raised by him, and he harbors a deep hatred for him.

2. He's bisexual, but only in the sense that he'll hit on both men and women. He's not attracted to people though--everything is considered leverage to him.

3. As part of his mutant gene, he was born with three bone claws--two at his index and ring finger knuckles, and one that comes out at his wrist--on each hand. However, during a fight with Wolverine, Daken lost his two wrist claws, and as a result, he has two long scars down his wrists. It looks as if he tried to kill himself, so as a result he tries to hide it. He still has the other claws, and he's not afraid to use them.

4. Another part of his mutant gene is the healing factor he inherited from his father. Daken is physically 60+, but looks like someone in his mid-20s.

5. Daken cares about one person and one person only--himself. He views everyone else as a puppet to get what he wants. As a result, he's a master manipulator who will say or do anything to gain your trust and your information.

6. Although he spent most of his life in the shadows with his mentor, he did get a taste of the limelight as a member of Norman Osborn's Dark Avengers. He played the role of Wolverine, primarily to piss of his father, but also to draw attention to himself. However, when he saw that as a sinking ship, he was the sole member to escape arrest.

7. His adoptive parents were Japanese upper-class, and raised him to be a "proper" young man. The way he was raised carried over to his adult life, and as a result, he is very fond of the finer things in life. He's used to living in sub-par conditions, as he did frequently while living with his mentor, Romulus, he finds those things beneath him.

8. Daken enjoys learning languages, and he's picked up multiple languages over the course of his life. Canonically he speaks Japanese, English, Italian, and Greek, and he most likely speaks several African languages as well as Arabic.

9. Although he has a temper, he's not easy to piss off. He'd much rather get back at you later in some subtle way than to lunge at you with claws bared. With the right triggers, you can get that reaction out of him, though.

10. At his core, Daken is an animal. His primal instincts are most important to him. Don't be deceived.
