He maintains short, dark brown hair, ensuring practicality in his daily endeavors.

Strapped to his back is a worn backpack, housing a carefully organized array of tools and supplies, and at his side rests a reliable crowbar.

Personality

Openness: While Perrine remains open to new experiences, his focus on survival often guides his decisions. He eagerly explores only when it serves a practical purpose.
2. Conscientiousness: Highly organized, Perrine keeps meticulous records and routines, ensuring efficiency and safety.
3. Extraversion: Perrine is a strong, silent type who may be reserved around strangers, but his relaxed presence is marked by innate confidence. He’s the steady anchor in the chaos of the post-apocalyptic world. In addition, Perrine prefers not to use the human language unless necessary because since his mutation, it just feels weird to use.

5. Neuroticism: The challenges of this world have made Perrine resilient. He maintains a calm demeanor and a quiet confidence, even in the face of adversity.

Backstory

Perrine’s journey through the post-apocalyptic world began with the Rupture Event, forcing him to adapt and survive. He soon found a group of fellow survivors, becoming their indispensable provider, scavenger, and smuggler. During one of his solo expeditions, he discovered his extraordinary ability to communicate with mutated animals. This unique gift facilitated his navigation through the treacherous world, forming unspoken bonds with creatures that enhanced his and his companions’ chances of survival.

He found a purposeful meaning in helping others through his knack for smuggling people and scrounging for goods. The former has been primarily utilized for the cause of mutants trying to find a better way of living away from the dangers of capture and isolation. Scrounging has been his way of helping groups with obtaining the goods and services they may need to live. This was how he came across Cynthia the first time. Since their initial meeting a few years ago, Perrine has been a reliable scrounger for her hidden mutant community and at times has even helped smuggle a mutant in need to her doorstep. He has an amicable relationship with the inhabitants at the hidden safe haven because of the service he provides them; however, he usually doesn't stay put very long before he is out in the wilderness once again.

Despite his past, Perrine remains hopeful. He combines his quiet strength with an innate humility and agreeableness, a calming presence among the chaos. His relentless pursuit of supplies, knowledge, and a means to restore order to the chaos of the new world drives him forward.
