[attr="class,"bioentry"]He has had a history of self-harm for as long as he can remember, and he has quite a few scars, and for a while it only got worse after he stopped drinking. He had never been treated for it because he did a good job of making it seem as if he was clumsy, or by making injuries look like an accident. He seems to always be on the lookout for his next vice. He's actually really lonely, but because of the back-and-forth love he (unintentionally on their part) felt he got from his adopted parents growing up, and highly conflicted feelings towards his bio parents, (and having bpd,) he tends to push people away. He's afraid he'll be abandoned by them, or worse, he'll make a mistake and they'll leave him. He has a really hard shell to crack, but once you get past it, he's actually just a soft, dorky, vulnerable kid.
He grew up with everyone expecting him to cause enough trouble to warrant his death. He's cold towards strangers at best and outright violent with them at worst. He's tired of everyone making assumptions about him because of the nature of his birth. He's quick to dismiss people that irk him. Despite all this, he really, really wants a small, solid group of people he can call friends. The only person he immediately trusted was his brother, but he is starting to gain a few more friend-like acquaintances as of late, and he's secretly really happy about that.
[attr="class,"bioentry"]Deimos was alive for barely a day when he was abandoned on the steps of a human orphanage, not even given a name, never knowing his true origins. It's recently been confirmed his biological parents were hoping he'd be killed. He spent about a year in the orphanage before he was adopted by an open-minded couple that was already aware of the supernatural world, going back home with them from Athens to Ziros in Eastern Greece. Almost immediately, they realized there was something... off about him. He wasn't even babbling, so they took him to a doctor. The doctor told them he was deaf, but really they should "put him down" since he was a were-vamp hybrid. His adoptive parents were appalled and refused, beginning to teach themselves and the boy sign language. When he turned four, his parents started him in speech therapy, hoping exposure to it young would help him in everyday life.
He was an extremely cranky and troublesome toddler. Doing research, his parents discovered it was probably the beginning of a lifelong battle for Deimos. Due to being a werewolf and vampire hybrid, he couldn't transform into a wolf to quell the animal, but also couldn't properly digest blood as needed for vampires. He was stuck in the middle, with no options (though his parents found that making him rare steaks helped a bit, and meat in general is his favorite food). They tried sending him to a regular, nearby school, but he attacked a student the second she teased him. Thankfully, were-vamp hybrids can't infect others, so her visit to the hospital wasn't as serious as it could've been, and Deimos was expelled. He ended up going to nine different elementary schools.
By the time he was about to start middle school, after quite a few quit, a rather brave psychologist that stuck with him had (still somewhat hastily) diagnosed Deimos with Borderline Personality Disorder, Depersonalization Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, and Selective Mutism. Some of which was theorized to be caused by chronic pain of not being able to transform (mostly the depersonalization disorder), and the mutism assumed to be due to his being deaf.
After attacking another person when he was twelve, Deimos' parents told him they were moving to the United States. Even though they still had their jobs, the economy was only getting worse in Greece. Deimos protested and acted out as much as he could, but they wouldn't budge on their decision.
He had a hard time adjusting to life in the States, no one spoke his language or knew sign language, and he couldn't fit in with his peers at all. And that would only be noticeable when they even bothered trying to talk to him. He got in trouble plenty of times while still taking classes, from ruining school property to sneaking around and drinking. He had a hard time making friends, even with other Deaf kids he found. Although he was given extensive speech therapy both as a kid and once he got to the US, he would still more often than not choose to stay mute.
He was practically exiled by the student population when he was 18, and ended up experiencing his first amnesiac dissociation, and ended up killing someone. He's still scarred from that day, not knowing what happened or how he killed the human. He went into a very deep depression, and was scared of himself. He tried to commit suicide using pain killers and alcohol, but it didn't work, and he woke up in the hospital a few days later. The story of the researcher's death still circulates within the city, so even years later people still avoid him. From age 18 to only very recently, he's only had Rosie stick by him no matter what he was going through, though he kept his suicide attempt a secret from her for a very long time.
Soon after graduating from school (barely), an incident with his parents occured. Although the reunion was nice, it quickly became bittersweet when he overheard (well, over-saw) his parents talking about how they didn't know how to continue care for him. Bitter, he attacked them on a particularly painful full moon, and he was admitted to the psychiatric ward, and his parents initially didn't seem keen to look back. He was seething in anger for days.
However, his anger didn't last long, as his parents came back not too long after his forcible admittance to explain to him everything they knew, about his birth, about when they found him, about all the research they'd done but still they never really knew what they were doing, and they were scared. They had broken bones and bloody bite marks because he was irritable just once. Although he knew he had to be adopted, as were-vamp hybrids were never born to humans (nor Asians typically born from white parents), this was the first time Deimos got any confirmation of it. It's created one of Deimos' favorite jokes when he learns something new about his family, because "after all, it took them 18 years to tell me I was adopted."
After he was released, he decided to get his own place. He couldn't be around his parents anymore. However, he had very little money saved up from previous jobs, so he had to settle for a run down studio apartment. He currently works as a barista/bartender at an evening Starbucks.
His personality has calmed significantly as he's grown, and became a bit softer than he was as a child. He still experiences chronic pain, and though most of the mental disorders have been dismissed, he still has been confirmed for borderline personality disorder. Initially avoided by almost all other peers (as most were-vamps in general are), he's slowly learned to become a bit more sociable. The peers that also stayed in town have grown to be more friendly towards him, though he's still pretty rough around the edges. He's also not quick to talk with anyone that doesn't know sign language (not that he'll completely refuse, he just finds it a burden).
He found out in 2017 that he has a younger brother. Somehow, his brother is rather... average. No health disorders, except for the pain that comes from not being able to transform. Deimos both feels anger that his biological parents abandoned another child and a need to fiercely protect his younger brother. He was later told by Felix that his, or rather, their parents were presumed dead, and that was probably why he had been placed in an orphanage. He also didn't remember their origins. Felix has reached out to him via Facebook message after explaining he had been doing a search for his biological parents and came across him instead. They live just far enough away they don't get to see each other more than once every couple weeks, but they've bonded quickly.
In summer of 2017, he discovered his parents were very much alive when they contacted him. Deimos has not been happy about it, and he's also not all that thrilled to find out his origins. Although he now knows his heritage lies in Hong Kong, he's still quick to say he's Greek.
