CEZAR AUGUSTIN STARK
Cezar is basically a coward; he has no real backbone, and won't often speak up for himself. He doesn't really know how to be independent, and is your textbook definition of a "follower". He takes commands and orders willingly, taking comfort in the safety of having someone to show him what to do and how to act. He's uncomfortable with facing the idea that he is responsible for his own actions, and prefers to stick to the story that he was just "following orders". Cezar doesn't want to deal with the consequences or, more often than not guilt, of his actions.
As such, Cezar tends to take on the personality traits of those he follows--for example, around his brother Costin, Cezar is often very violent and animalistic and more likely to get into fights, and even kill. When on his own, Cezar is relatively shallow. He doesn't spend a lot of time internalizing the world around him, instead lives moment to moment, thought to thought, and doesn't dwell on much more than that. But he is not naturally cruel or violent, in fact when his brother is not around Cezar is very docile and amiable. He doesn't relish in the kill like his brother does, but he doesn't mind spilling blood if Costin says to do so.
His brother Costin seems to have almost complete control over him, though at times Cezar will tire of being put down constantly, and make an attempt at standing up for himself-- sort of grasping at the vague hope that he could somehow become a better man. It doesn't take more than a harsh glare or snarl from Costin to silence him and effectively crush that hope.
Born into an extremely wealthy Transylvanian family, Cezar is of noble birthright, though his personality today would not often display such usual traits of nobility. The line was pure Shifter - not a trace of anything but, and thus his family was proud of their lineage and took pride in their great heritage and secret strengths. They used their Shifts to cause terror on the peasants when their rule was doubted or payments were not met. The whole of Cezar's family were wolves - you know the tale of the werewolf? Utter nonsense, of course, but the tales were woven based upon sightings of Cezar's family members who had slipped up and were seen shifting. Over time the peasant's simple minds spawned ideas of their own - a warring family with the Stark's was a bat shifter family by the name of Dracul, and thus the age-old war between Vampires and Werewolves began.
Cezar was born the fourth child, with three older brothers Sascha, Misha and Costin. From a young age, Cezar was taught that his oldest brother Sascha was an abomination, the product of tainted blood and worthy of nothing. Cezar learned that the reason they kept Sascha alive was that he truly was worth nothing--not even death. The family kept Sacha locked away and fed him little enough to survive. Cezar picked up on the violent and cruel nature towards his brother, though he himself was never the instigator of this and only followed his brother Costin. Costin encouraged Cezar to join in on the ''fun," which consisted of mocking, teasing and beating Sascha, sometimes on a daily basis.
This went on and escalated until the brothers started following Sascha on his rare trips into town. They saw Sascha talking with a girl on several occasions, and noticed that he had a special liking to her. Apparently it enraged Costin to see Sascha happy; in his eyes, Sascha didn't deserve to be happy. And he wanted nothing more than to rip that happiness away from Sascha; so he did. One day, Costin and his brothers followed Sascha and his girlfriend (Ecaterina), planning to scare her away. But listening into their conversation, Costin heard Sascha propose to the girl, who in turn tried to get Sascha to run away with her. This pushed Costin over the edge, and blinded by the fury that came with the prospect of Sascha living a happy life with the girl of his dreams, somewhere far away from the torture he should be enduring, Costin leapt forward. Cezar, following his brother's demands followed suit and he and his brothers worked as a pack and killed the girl, tearing into her like the savage wolves they were; all in front of Sascha's eyes.
After that bloody day, they never let Sascha leave his room in the castle. A few years passed in relative peace, until a Keeper showed up on their property. He went by the name of Adston and was taking a vacation in Transylvania, trying to weed out the secrets of Dracula and the infamous werewolves, etc, etc, more of a fanatic whim than any inkling as to the truth, but non-the-less he discovered the origin of the tales, the mystery that surrounded the Stark family and their rivals. He rode up to the castle in the tour bus that drove by, and decided to come back after dark. A rather seedy individual, true, and his conniving ways were paid off handsomely - he caught the beginnings of the annual hunt the Stark family had. He caught Cezar, his brothers and his parents shifting, true, but no sooner had he made the report into the Menagerie base via radio connection than he was caught by the family and mauled to death.
Within a week Keepers were upon the Stark family, but Cezar and the rest of his family managed to escape the snare by dashing into the woods earlier that morning, leaving Sascha bound and gagged as a welcome treat for the Keepers. The family lived in the woods as wolves for weeks, hunting prey as a pack and struggling to make it in the wilderness. His parents and brother Misha grew tired of this endeavor and assumed it would be safe back at their home, that the Keepers would have given up. Costin didn't believe it to be so, and convinced Cezar to stay with him. It turns out Costin was right, because his parents and brother were met at their castle by the Keepers and taken to the Menagerie.
Costin and Cezar continued to live in the woods, but it was even harder with most of their pack missing. They eventually turned to terrorizing nearby ranchers for food, preying on their livestock. Costin got more than food out of the hunts, though, he reveled in the fear in the farmers eyes. One day they picked the wrong farmer to mess with. The farmer ran from them and they gave chase, and were lead into a barn. He hid, and when they ran inside the farmer darted out the door and locked the door from the outside. He discovered that the two were Shifters when the two wolves that had chased him down suddenly were banging on the barn doors and demanding to be let out. He called the Keepers, who showed up rather quickly and transported the two to the Menagerie.
