Personality:Snarky and witty with a silver tongue it’s clear that James has made the use of his many years to culture his charmablity into a sharply honed weapon. One he uses often to get out of trouble and to get what he wants from people. He’s a flirt, he doesn’t even honestly notice he’s doing it half the time. He’d tried to wean back on the habit as it’s one of the many reasons him and his Ex-Fiance had a falling out. He’s extremely likeable and there’s few people in either his inner circle or casual acquaintances that don’t like James on some kind of level.
Like everyone else that isn’t the complete picture when it comes to his total personality. As charming as he can be James has a flip side. He can be snarky and mean, the charm that’s been sharpened into a weapon can also be used to cut people into shreds verbally. He uses insults and bad humor to cover up any faults of his own or to distract people from what’s really going on in his life, like a mask to hide who he really is. He deals with the stresses of both work life and pack life by sleeping around (when not in a relationship) and drinking.
Another side affect of his time spent as a CEO is his crafty nature. He's used to people attempting to back stab him or make him look bad. It means he's had to be smarter and faster on the uptake than other people. He often feels like he hasn't done anything worth wild to have such a good life style. Which in turns makes him harder on himself than he really ought to be. He tends to punish himself. For the time being he's good with being the so called "spy". Keeping his own interests close to heart. The arrival of more foxes could possibly change his mind set.
WHAT ARE YOU?
Neutral- (20 Points) [+1 Power] Werefoxes with this power are generally accepted by all Lycan groups giving them an edge in negotiations.
Quick tongue- (30 points) [+2 Power] A Werefox with this power may quickly fix something they have said. Perhaps they accidentally revealed a scret or were caught in a lie. By activating this power they may post a one sentance addendum which will fix the problem.
Healing Touch- (30 Points) [+2 Power] A Fox with this power can heal another Lycanthrope by pressing their bare skin against that of the wounded. The stronger the Fox, the faster the healing. For more serious wounds more skin is required.
Read Body- (20 Points) [+1 Power] This fox is able to read the body language of others to determine their attitude. An Alpha with this power can tell when someone is ready to strike.
Shrug off Power- (40 Points) [+2 Power] The Werefox can concentrate and shrug off mind tricks from any being of equal or lesser power.
Shield the Call-(RARE) (50 Points)[ +3 Power] The shifter is able to shield himself and others in his group from a vampire's call.
Sense Danger- (20 Points) [+1 Power] The shifter is able to feel tension around he and possibly know when someone means he harm.
Smell Power-(30 Points) [+2 Power] As it is imperative for shifters to recognize the power level and rank of another member of their group for social hierarchy's sake, a shifter can already sense the power level of another shifter. However, they do not have the natural ability to sense the power level of other creatures. This ability allows a shifter to detect the power level of a vampire, and whether or not a human has magical qualities. Finally, it also allows for the detection of magic use. All of this is limited by greater shielding capabilities.
Appealing- (30 points) [+2 Power] there is something about you, you stick in people's minds and people just can't help but trust you at least until you give them reason not to. Those with higher power can see through this illusion. [Alpha]
Sly Fox- (60 Points) [+4 Power] It is nearly impossible to tell when the Fox is telling a lie or hiding something. A being with higher power may try to discern if the fox is telling a lie by contacting an admin (such as if they have taste lies). [Alpha]
Negotiator- (50 Points) [+3 Power] The Werefox is a natural negotiator, able to sway those of lesser power to do what they say. This cannot be used to force others to do things outside of what they would normally do. [Beta]
Swift Paws- (40 Points) [+3 Power] Foxes are the fastest of the lycanthrope species. They’re swift and graceful on their feet in both human and animal form. This gives them an edge on the rest of the far large predatory lycanthropes.

Read Body- (20 Points) [+1 Power] This fox is able to read the body language of others to determine their attitude. An Alpha with this power can tell when someone is ready to strike
Soothing Voice- (30 Points) [+2 Power] The Fox can fill their voice with power soothing anger, fear or hostility in any subject no matter their strength, although the stronger the target is the less effective the power will be.
Conceal Power- (40 Points) [+2 Power] The Werefox is skilled at hiding their aura of power either to make themselves seem human or appear weaker than they are.
WHERE DO YOU COME FROM?
Family:Donovan and April Masters (Father and Mother), Cassidy Masters (Sister-30)
Other important people:His Skulk,Rebecca Mosley (Ex Fiance)
History: James was the first child born to April (a house wife with a degree in computer science) and Donovan (budding CEO for a company tried to get a leg up in building design). James a was a bright child hardly needing to much attention or someone to look after him after he got out of his toddler stage. And it worked out well for Donovan who tried to spend as little time at home as he could in effort to get his company going. Donovan fell to the trap that most budding business men who make it successful do, he wanted more money and power. After calling in a few connections and favors owed, Donovan was able to claim a decent sized part of the building designing market. Donovan put a lot of effort into getting his company off the ground and as a result was at work more often than he was at home which the family had to learn to accept over time.
When James hit three his father was raking in the money hand over fist and the family didn't really want for anything. He really didn't understand what it was his father did or what it meant to have money. He did know that if he pointed out something he wanted from the tv, most of the time, he would get what he wanted. This led to little James getting spoiled. By the time he was six and ready for school, his father decided that private tutors were a better option than sending James to private school, much less public school. That made it harder for James to have friends, but sometimes his tutors would take a chance and have lessons in public places. Then James was able to play with other children his age.Between his tutoring sessions at home in Long Beach, he would visit his father in North Beach, where his father was working on his latest projects. His childhood seemed to go by very fast.
When James turned ten his mother had another child, which thrilled James as he considered the baby an instant playmate. However, he was saddened to know that a baby couldn't play properly, like he wanted to. He was even more disappointed to realize he had a baby sister rather than the brother he was expecting. So, even though he didn't have his mother's full attention like he used to, everything went on. His private tutors advanced his grade levels in an effort to keep James engaged . When James was fourteen another baby entered the picture, and he was more prepared for this one. Though still sad to see it was another girl and not a boy since, with his father gone a lot of the time, he was out numbered by the females living in the house.
Pretty much done with schooling at this point Donovan thought it was as good a time as any to start grooming James to take over the business he had built from the group up himself. The small amount of time he did have to play with other children in the area basically became zero but James adjusted well to the new lifestyle. It took awhile to get used to having to wear a suit and tie much less one that fitted him so well he felt like it was to tight but he adjusted to that like he did everything else.
By the time James hit thirty five, he was running the company on his own so his father could stay home and spend more time with the girls. They were a well known name in building design by this point in time as well. It meant that while Donovan had formed the company's solid base and built up it's name James was the one that benefited most from having the last name, Masters. He milked it for what it was worth too, attending galas and fund raisers while having something attractive on his arm every night, for the most part. When he hit 30 though a serious wrench was turn into his plans. He got the vaccination that was suppose to protect him from getting infected by a lycan but ended up a fox. The skulk happened to have a nurse on the staff of the hospital that James received his shot so instead of going straight into a safe house the nurse called the leader and James was whisked away. Money can thankfully keep mouths shut and no one was any the wiser that James wasn’t exactly human anymore. The next five years he trained closely with the leader, master simple omega powers then once he had mastered those his beta powers and onward to Alpha. When he was secure there he became the second for his skulk while still being a successful CEO.
The older he gets though the more mellowed out he gets and he's now at odd ends. He has his contacts to keep him busy and he's learned to design buildings over the years so if he has muse to do it he has a sketch pad out in front of him. LA and Long beach had lost their appeal before long and James decided to branch out the company into the Boston area. He managed to settle in with little to no trouble. After a year of living in Boston James was tugged away unexpectedly. He had to head back to Long Beach to take care of massive business issues. One of his employees was selling secrets to one of his biggest competitors. He had to clean house as it was and straighten things out. During the year he was gone he kept in touch with the friends he made and though he heard about the troubles and hardships that had befallen Boston he could get away long enough to do anything about it.
He's finally gotten all the spies and such out of his home base and can safely make his way back to Boston though he's very unsure of what kind of Boston he is coming back. He's only heard rumors to be fair and he knows better than most how things can be over elaborated to get sympathy. He's made contact with the few friends he's been in contact with over the last year and plans on trying to help out as best as he can, as best as any lone Alpha Fox can to be honest.
