Hollis is short, slim, and wears large horn-rimmed glasses. From a distance, this gives him the appearance of being younger than he is, but up close, the lines around his mouth and the grey at his temples make it obvious he's in his late 30s or early 40s. His hair is black, cut fashionably, but tends to escape whatever hairstyle he has it in as the day wears on. His eyes are a touch too yellow to be called hazel. Occasionally, a slight southern accent slips through, but it always disappears as quickly as it shows up.
Hollis is rarely seen in any form other than Homid, but on the rare occasion that he does shift to Lupus, he's unusually dark-furred for a Glasswalker, though as he is of no particular lineage this may not be a surprise. He's quite small, but lean muscle rather than bulk points to swiftness that matches his dexterity on the legal field.
Hollis' baseline tends to be solemn, with occasional hints of dry humor, but this can easily turn into an air of exasperation when things aren't as efficient as he'd like them to be. He's known to be practical and values the same in others. A hint of sleaziness occasionally drifts through.
A real estate developer in Brooklyn, he has a legal background that serves him in both his daily life and as a Philodox. Although he claims to be "community-minded," sharp individuals note that the work he's done is less in favor of the community and more in the favor of luxury apartments. He has a very un-NYC soft spot for firearms, prompting some to remark that you can take the boy out of the country, but a little country stays in the boy.
"Hollis Faraday" isn't his real name.
Hollis had a torrid affair with his former alpha's wife
He didn't just take in Jen Ahlberg - he's the wolf that bit her. If he looked after her, it was out of guilt.
He didn't bite Jen Ahlberg, but one of the NYC Glasswalkers did. Hollis covered it up; it's why the investigation never pinned anything on anyone.
Hollis has a metis child himself; it's why he's so lenient on those who make metis.
The sort of philodox who serves as an ahroun when necessary.
The sort of philodox who's too damn cocky about not having an ahroun.
If there's a Bastet nearby, Hollis will sense her. And flirt.

"No one actually likes parties."
"Hollis cares a lot, about a lot of people. He carries around all this weight that's not his own. I wanna be strong enough to carry more of it for him than I added. He deserves that much at least." - Jen Ahlberg
"I don't get to be upset when my family is disappointed in me, but when they get disappointed in Hollis it's time to break out the 'remember that one Christmas' nuclear options." - Jo Fay-Blair
"I've never met a Homid so obsessed with penises. I can't wait until he mates and gets it out of his system so we can have a proper conversation on the Litany." - Haunts-the-Forest
"Wait, he said that? About me? No, no, I'm flattered, probably, I'm just concerned about his lack of observation skills. Maybe he thinks all Homids look the same."
"Always good catching up. You've been my mentor and friend and you're one of the reasons I'm proud to be a Glass Walker. I know you've got my back Hollis. I hope you know I've got yours...and that dual action revolver you gave me. The Sept of the Fallen Green is gonna do well under your leadership." - Cat
