He is covered in tattoos, each one represting a story that has inspired him or he has lived through.
Homid: Heralding back to his ancestry, Rúni stands tall and muscular with a light tan from his time out in the sun. His dirty blond hair is shaved down on the sides with the top left longer and usually pulled back into a top knot. Covered in tattoos, reflecting his life and trials. Every tattoo is a specific story waiting to be re-told. His piercing blue eyes are alight with fire and passion.
Crinos: He brings the 'nine-foot-shag-carpet-of-death' look down to an art. Though he his fur in neatly trimmed, his fur is storm grey. His body is a rippling mass of muscles and tendons. His claws look vicious and his fangs hide behind a wry, mischievous smile.
Lupus: Rúni is a massive dark gray wolf who comes off as incredibly aggressive even when he is not. The muzzle of his nose is white and the further back the fur travels, it turns into a dark, stormy grey. His eyes are the same shade of brilliant blue as they are in Homid.
