Link to power: (Please put a link to your character’s power here)
Race or Species: Human/Jaguar Hybrid
Birthday: April 6
Personality: Renzo is a mellow sort, never letting small things get under his skin. He takes an relaxed approach to life as he believes one lives longer if they don't stress out too much. As such, people could claim that Renzo doesn't take many things that he has no interest in seriously, and they would have a point. He has a tendency to either grow bored or straight out ignore the severity of a situation if it doesn't pertain to anything that he might care about.
People would even go so far as to say that outside of anything that interests him, Renzo is bit of a slacker. This isn't truly the case, as he believes small things should be taken at a certain pace and they'll get done when they get done. He's also somewhat cheap as Renzo, being brought up in a frugal family and having dealt with the lifestyle of a pro wrestler in a small indie promotion, has difficulties spending money on things he doesn't think are necessary and will spend practically hours trying to figure out if buying a certain item is worth it. In spite of all this, Renzo is a rather kind and thoughtful sort in his own way, with a strong moral compass, which eventually brought him to join the Hero Association.
And when he is interested in something, such as being Grapple Jaguar, a spark ignites within Renzo, a feeling of excitement he hadn't felt since his time in the ring. While largely remaining the same, he becomes more energetic and willing to take things slightly more serious.
On the other hand, while he has gotten a handle on it in recent years, he tries not to get too overexcited as it reveals a more and newly acquired... Aggressive side of himself. Renzo becomes more violent, quicker to anger and progressively more feral-like the longer he stays in this mindset, until he finds himself in a berserker-like rage. It's this state, among a few other things, that brought a lot of quiet self-loathing for him and the idea that he should keep quiet about him being less than human.
•Pro Wrestling: Renzo enjoys watching pro wrestling as it reminds him of his days as an up-and-coming independent circuit wrestler before his "stay" at the House of Evolution.
•Flavored Sparkling Water: As a child, Renzo enjoyed soda for its bubbly fizz but once he began his training as a wrestler, he switched over to sparkling water to get the same feeling without the negatives.
•Action: Renzo isn't one for sitting around, he feels more alive when he is out in the field, protecting the innocent and defeating evil creatures.
•Expanding his Fighting Prowess: Renzo is always on the lookout to learn new moves and fighting styles to incorporate into his repertoire as it is his belief that a wrestler/hero should always have a move any situation.
•His Fur: Renzo considers his newly acquired fur as a hassle, as it needs daily maintenance, from brushing it to spending several extra minutes in the shower to clean it.
•Wasting Money: Being from a frugal upbringing and once living on a meager indie wrestler salary, Renzo dislikes spending money on things he considers frivolous or things he believes can be cheaper.
•Boring Things: Renzo finds anything that bores him a hassle, from sitting in various meetings with the Association to watching paint dry. He feels such things waste his time when he could be doing more important things, like doing actual hero things.
•Giving into his Beastly side: Ever since his change, Renzo has been dealing with the animalistic fury that lurks within in him. While he has, in recent times, gained a handle on it, he dislikes delving into such a state as he worries he'll lose himself one day.
Motivations: Renzo is driven by the need to prove himself, and one day the world, that he isn't a monster, that inside he's still human. That the hero he once was in the ring was still alive. This ideal pushed him into becoming a hero as he refused to become like so many terrible creatures before him, that the abilities forced upon him can become a force for good.
•Being considered a monster: Renzo fears if and when the day comes that he's discovered to not be fully human anymore, the world will consider him a monster despite all the good he has done.
•Needles: Renzo has a phobia of needles, he knows it's childish but after what he experienced in the House of Evolution, he just can't stand even being approached with a needle.
General Appearance: Renzo, simply put has the appearance of a humanoid jaguar complete with tail, standing at five feet and nine inches tall, weighing at about two hundred twenty pounds. He has a lean, athletic body honed by years of dedicated training and wrestling. Renzo's arms are quite slender but have a noticeable muscular build to them ending with sharp claws tipping his fingers, and his legs are similar in build. Due to the experiments conducted on him, his body is covered in a soft and smooth spotted, black fur that he carefully maintains to keep said soft and smooth quality, and usually if anyone questions his appearance, he simply states it's an elaborate costume.
As for his choice in attire, Renzo enjoys wearing a black suit and a loosely tied tie, with a crimson red dress shirt underneath, a pair of black leather boots, and a pair of heavy, black leather gloves covering his clawed hands, acting as a sort of sheath for his claws.
