Devoted Father

Kenneth has a daughter: Sofia. She is currently eight years old, and she means everything to him. Like her mother (who died shortly before Kenneth got out of prison), she is also Garou (and Satyr kinain), a Black Fury Galliard to be precise, though she obviously hasn't undergone her First Change just yet. Her wellbeing is his top priority, much more so than his own.

One with Everything

Just because he's big doesn't mean he's dumb. Oh, he's no particle physicist, but he IS extraordinarily perceptive and an excellent judge of character. Ability Aptitude in both Empathy and Alertness gives him a -2 difficulty modifier on all rolls involving those two abilities, and with Sense Motion he doesn't even need to be able to see people to spot them. He is apparently also able to see spirits, ghosts, and even chimera. Near his home, it's even harder to get anything past him - with his Lord of the Land power, his senses extend quite far...

Gentle Giant

Kenneth is big. Like, really really big. Finding clothes that fit can be a challenge, but at least he can take a beating; he has 4 extra health levels, for starters. Even so, he's a genuinely nice guy. Maybe a bit blunt sometimes, brutally honest as he is, but most of the time he wouldn't hurt a fly. People who threaten his daughter, on the other hand...

Convicted Killer

A few years back, up in Los Angeles, Kenneth beat a pimp and drug dealer to death with his bare hands. Though originally charged with first-degree murder, some serious mitigating circumstances came to light, and the charge was lowered to voluntary manslaughter (to which he pleaded guilty). There were those (quite a lot of people, in fact) who thought he should go free, the victim having been utter scum, but killing people is still against the law. In the end, he ended up serving a relatively lenient three years in prison. He's out now, and trying to turn over a new leaf.

Anastasia "Close enough."
Roxy "When Sofia hits puberty, your insight will be necessary. Before then, it is still very much welcome."
Mika "Names may change; love endures."
Cross "If ever a man was to be admired, it would be this man."
Leila "You do not let even death slow you down. Good. Shows determination."

Tropes / Filler

Good is not Soft

If you have to look along the shaft of an arrow from the wrong end, if a man has you entirely at his mercy, then hope like hell that man is an evil man. Because the evil like power, power over people, and they want to see you in fear. They want you to know you're going to die. So they'll talk. They'll gloat. They'll watch you squirm. They'll put off the moment of murder like another man will put off a good cigar. So hope like hell your captor is an evil man. A good man will kill you with hardly a word.
-Terry Pratchett, 'Men at Arms', on Carrot Ironfounderson

Kenneth is a good man. That doesn't mean he's going to hesitate to squish bad people into paste.

Brutal Honesty

"Tact is just not saying true stuff. I'll pass."
-Cordelia, Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Kenneth doesn't do the whole deception thing. He doesn't do polite, either. Direct and to the point, always - if you don't like the answer, you shouldn't have asked for one.

The Stoic

"A cucumber is bitter; throw it away. There are briars in the road; turn aside from them. This is enough. Do not add, 'And why were such things made in the world?'"
Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
