Varia Criminale (Member)
Kruger Wesenhauer is a member of the Varia Criminale, who was previously lived in the Aussengraht. He is a Human Magician/Pureblooded-Werewolf Hybrid who was both famous individuals and inherited their abilities. He was one of the infamous bounty hunter known as the "Crimson Wolf", due to his cold, arrogant, and savage-like temperamental personality.
While he was in the contract of protecting a corrupted lord in a remote city, he met Nicholas and both fought each other in the battle. After in a intense battle between he and Nicholas, he took interests in Kruger, and offered to become his peerage. He accepted the offer, and warned him that he'll be watching him closely and see how he is different from the people he have met.
Kruger is a very tall and muscular, handsome young man with golden-wolf silted eyes. He has a silver slicked back hair, its numerous spiky strands pointing everywhere, though some falls down in a small tuft on his forehead. He has a distinct scars on his left eye, and possessing a single, prominent eyelash jutting outwards.
His attires consisted of purple, wide-collared shirt where it shows his bare-chest, dark-bluish pants held by a silver-white belt with large ace of spades design buckles sporting around his legs, criss-crossing in x-shapes, and simple white shoes. He also donned a large, black coat with silver gray fur trimming around the neck and the sleeve's edges. Sometimes, he would draped over his shoulders like a cape.
In his youth, Kruger was extremely kind, very attached to his parents, and greatly admired their line of works. This, however, changed upon his fateful day where his family was murdered by the Baharuths empire, causing his kind personality to distort over extreme angers and sadness.
In his young adult age, Kruger was initially portrayed as cold, arrogant, prideful, and savage-like temperamental personality where he would mercilessly kill anyone who would pissed him off and looked down on those he considered weak, heavily reprimanding their weakness and even resolving to hurt them whenever they stepped in his path. Kruger seemed to care very little about others, usually suggesting that they had to give him something in order to acquire his help; in one of such instances, when he was asked for help during his bounty-hunting job, he would demand ridiculous amounts of payment, give him the best women they got to offer, or best alcohol drinks they got in stock.
After he met Nicholas and meeting new comrades during his travels, his is attitude has changed. He seems far more light-hearted and serene, and apparently has grown fond of the new family he found in the Varia Criminale. He was also willing to take all the responsibility of the crimes for himself, in order to repent and apologizes for all of the people's miserable lives he destroyed, and even encouraging them for severe punishment if they desired to. Even before his traumatic event, Nicholas claimed that Kruger inherited not only his parent's abilities, but also their noble and kind heart for caring to people, something shown when he fought against Nicholas and saw a glimpse of his way of life.
