Dont let my sig by his foot fool you, this is OLD. Over a year old actually. Though I edited him out, theres another character on this page, and I created him last year, so yeah.
As the title says, this is Clayton Danvers, a character in Kelley Armstrongs wonderful series, Women of the Otherworld. Theres been 6 novels and several novellas published. Ive only read the novels, but I adore the series. My faves are the first two books, Bitten and Stolen, that focus on a female werewolf named Elena. Clayton is her lover. As you expected, hes a werewolf too.
But, theres more to Clayton that makes him my favorite character in Kelleys books. First of all, hes 37 and could still pass for 21. Having Baywatch good looks is a definite plus, but what makes it even better is that hes a genius with a PhD in anthropology. Hell, hes even done lectures. What makes him tops hands down for me though, is his background.
In Kelleys world, werewolves are male only, and they cant transform until the boys reach puberty. That all was fine and dandy until the current Pack Alpha, Jeremy, (werewolf pack) found a five year old boy in the Louisiana Bayou who was able to change into a werewolf and was killing humans. This was Clayton. Rather than sentence the boy to death, as was normal for werewolves who feasted on humans, Jeremy took the boy back to the Pack home, Stonehaven, and adopted the boy as his son.
As Clay grew, he began to get teased at school for his bayou accent. Rather than lose the accent, he chose to keep it. This made him stand out, especially since Stonehaven is located in northern New York state.
Clay never lost the accent either. And now hes the muscle for the Pack, as well as Jeremys bodyguard.
Heres the man who, when saying darling, says dah-lin. That makes him loveable, at least for me
So this is basically my representation of Clay. He doesnt wear a lot of color, so I made his outfit as simple as possible.
And he doesnt really have wolf ears and a tail, I just got bored.
Ill probably get around to drawing more of Kelleys characters.
