pyotr andrei Dickson
Before being brought to the Dome and forced to undergo the process of becoming an anthromorph, Pyotr was a big, happy guy, contently living in a small coastal village.
He was an energetic and respectful young man, using his size and helpful nature in order to help his family at home and those in the wider village community, such as helping to repair roofs or transporting goods to the local market for a small bit of coin.
However, since arriving at the Menagerie and undergoing the steps to becoming an anthromorph, (very much against his will) as well as being separated from his small family, this gentle giant has hardened to his now harsher world. While he still retains his loyalty, respectfulness and deep-down kind-heartedness, he has lost the lively, eager spark that once characterised him among his friends and family. He is much more sombre now, with a coldness in his eyes that was not there before. Pyotr will often be seen to be a silent presence within the Nakoma tribe, albeit a large presence still.
Violence comes much swifter to Pete now. Before coming to the Dome, Pyotr did not partake in forms of aggression, save for the biannual hunting trip he completed, but even then he was merciful and fair to his prey. Now, as a Nakoma Warrior, Pyotr will quickly have any intruder or outsider dealt with, with maybe only half the amount of mercy he shows edible prey. He cares little for excuses, begging or bribery.
A sizeable portion of his anger and frustration stems from his transformation from shifter to anthro. He has only been an anthro for a few years, and he still finds it quite hard to accept that he will never run as a bear again. The pain of the procedure and coming to terms with his new form also causes him to experience unwanted dreams and disturbed sleep; something that puts him in a far from cheery mood.
Pyotr's story began when his mother, Rufina, helped a research group set up camp not too far from the small coastal village she grew up in. She paid particular attention to one member of the research group, Gordon Dickson, a tall American man from Alaska, who, along with his 4 other researchers, was here to study the polar bear population within the Chukchi Peninsula and surrounding areas.
Over the next few weeks, Rufina and Gordon grew closer as she shared her strangely in-depth knowledge of the bears; what they ate, where they travelled and how they interacted. Gordon was fascinated with this woman and her affinity for the creatures he dedicated his studies to, and by the time six months had passed, the couple had become inseparable. When Gordon's fellow researchers left to continue their research in Greenland, Gordon stayed with Rufina, helping her manage her small shop. Rufina, in return, tried to teach Gordon some of her Russian language, and also to teach him what she called "the way of the bear".
It wasn't long before the two were talking of marriage, and yet, a heavy weight burdened Rufina; she was a shifter. Not something that was desirable, especially now that shifters were being taken. She was unsure of how her lover would react when she told him, but she did know she had to tell him the truth of her existence.
One calm night, the young woman finally tearfully told him her secret. She was a polar bear shifter. It was the reason she was able to gain such an insight into his research subjects, and she begged Gordon to keep her secret.
Gordon was stunned, but he could not deny his love for Rufina, and so he quickly accepted her as she was. The two were soon married after that. Soon enough, Rufina became pregnant, and eight and a half months later, she gave birth to a son, Pyotr.
The little boy was loved deeply by his parents, and when he first shifted at the age of 14 after an accident in which he slipped beneath some thin ice, his parents both cradled the bear cub that was their son.
Rufina, who had given birth to a daughter, Uliana, when Pyotr was 9, then decided it was time to train her son in being shifter, just as her parents had trained her.
Every day after school, Pyotr joined his mother on hunting trips and gained a vast knowledge of his animal side. As he grew into a teenager and then a young adult, Pete gained confidence and joy as a bear, while still spending time as a young man with his father, helping him with his research and running his family's shop.
When he completed his school career, Pyotr decided to stay with his family so that he could take over the running of the shop from his parents. It was this time in his early 20s that Pete really felt content with his life; running the shop during the day, training his sister and spending time as a bear in the evenings and at the weekend.
One day however, when Pete and his Father were out collecting supplies for the shop in the larger town next to the small one the family resided in, the worst happened. The scientists found them; sent by the government possibly? Pyotr didn't know. He had lived a very sheltered life for a shifter, but he had heard rumours that shifters were being taken by scientists to some place to contain them, to experiment on them.
His sister called him in a panicked and fear-stricken voice and told her brother that men with guns had broken into the shop where their mother was working. They shot her with something that had made her legs collapse from under her. Pyotr could hear his mother in the background, screaming in her native tongue at the intruders, while commanding her daughter to run. Uliana had hidden herself in her wardrobe, and was begging her brother to save her. "Please Pyotr, don't let them take me," she whispered to him through the phone. Pyotr told her to stay quiet, and that he and their Father were on their way home, but he knew he would be too late; they were 35 minutes by car away from their home. Without telling his Father, he ran to car and started the engine, his Father running behind him. Pyotr handed him the phone and quickly explained what was happening as the tires screeched in protest at the sudden burst of acceleration.
Within a few minutes, his Father started yelling down the phone, and Pyotr knew his sister had been found. He yelled in frustration and pain, speeding dangerously towards their home.
When they arrived home, they found no sign of Rufina and Uliana. The place was a mess, but that was the least of their concerns. Pyotr felt as if he had failed his mother and his little sister, and sat outside the busted in wardrobe, head in his hands. His father knew he had to get Pyotr and himself somewhere safe, and so despite his shock and anger, he packed his son and himself a bag, grabbed their passports and whatever money he could find and set off with his son towards the airport.
They booked a one-way flight to Berlin, as Gordon had friends there that they could stay with until they worked out what to do. It was a sombre flight. Neither man could talk to each other about what had happened.
Once in Germany, the pair booked a taxi to bring them to the train station. Pyotr sat in the car as his father rummaged in the boot for something. Then he was shot.
Pete jumped from the cab and wheeled around to see his Father slumped against the boot, a steady stream of blood leaving his head. Just as he was going to grab his Father, he felt a prick in his neck, although he barely registered this. It wasn't long before he was slumped beside his now deceased Father.
He woke a few times during transit. Always for a few seconds each time before another dose of the sedative was given. When he finally awoke at his destination, he was in some kind of cell. It didn't take him long to find out this was the Menagerie.
The next few months would prove to be the most awful and torturous months of his existence. The scientists decided to make the switch from shifter to anthro almost immediately, as they had a few ideas they had been wanting to test on a shifter of the Ursus Genus. They injected him with substances, they beat him, they put him through electric shock treatment. All so that the shifter genes would become unstable, meaning the scientists could freeze them half way through their metamorphosis.
His bones grew at a pace that made him vomit in pain, his skin changed from a pale beige to a midnight black. He became half a man and half a beast, like some kind of twisted horror story.
He was released once the tests were completed and their data had been recorded. He wandered for a few weeks, full of rage and pain and confusion. He was found by some Nakoma outriders after being chased by some shifter scouts, and after seeing that this tribe was filled with people like him, he decided to stay with the Chief's permission.
He started off as an apprentice, but was quickly chosen as a warrior once he was trained in fighting and hunting techniques, mainly due to his sheer size and strength. Now he lives with and serves the Nakoma tribe.
The rest has yet to be seen.
