Most of the following information, other than what would have been written about in news articles and gallery guides, should be considered OOC information unless you have a good reason to know it. Please ask before assuming that you know anything about my character's past, as he's fairly secretive about it for the most part. Many thanks!

Character Details

Hugo is very engaging, interactive; a social butterfly bad-boy, living life to the fullest with no apologies and no excuses for his choices, behavior, or art work. But in truth, few people really /know/ the man. He keeps his emotions buried down deep inside, indulges in many brief and superficial relationships to protect himself from the real and perceived betrayals of his childhood. He is well armored against the slings and arrows of the world around him, facing them down with a sardonic smile and quick wit, but he is often not nearly so confident or assured as he would have one believe.

While he could be incredibly bitter and jaded, Hugo has come to realize that there really isn't any point to that approach. The only person that harms is himself, and as such he has a rather optimistic, though still realistic, outlook on life. He is deeply committed to his art work and the integrity thereof, always interested in exploring new ideas, media, and styles. While he is enjoying success now, he doesn't pander to the public or the current popular styles - which is in part why he is so successful. He isn't afraid of taking chances and crossing boundaries. Living in New York City, Hugo has pretty much seen it all in a way. In that city, more than any other, one lives life to the extreme. As such, Hugo has a 'live and let live' attitude towards most things.


Abbey Werewolf Mechanic She is both his mechanic and starting to become a friend. There is a fair amount of flirting on Hugo's side, but nothing more. He doesn't know what she really is.
Desiree Human Friend/Lover Their relationship is a casual one, but also a passionate one. Hugo knows that he's not the only man in her life, and he's okay with that.
Josephine Psychic Sister It wasn't easy growing up with an older sister who could read your every dirty thought, but despite this fact, Hugo was always fond of and close to Josephine till the family broke apart and he stopped being close to anyone. Now he takes pleasure in teasing, mocking, and provoking her at every opportunity he gets. And while he loves her, they still tend to fight like cats and dogs.
Paige Witch Friend? Theirs is an odd sort of relationship. Half push-me-pull-you, half magnets that one moment attract and the next repel. He doesn't know what she is.
Todd Human Mystery Despite the fact that he has a crush on Hugo, and despite the fact that he's not all there, Hugo finds that he is terribly curious about Todd and rather fond of him as well.
Vincent Human Brother Though his older brother has always had a protective nature toward him, Hugo has never been particularly close to Vincent, finding him too uptight and severe for his liking. But he owes Vincent. Big time.
