History: Unlike most kittens, Zero was not born of love, but for breeding purposes. Yes, Zero is a rare breed of cat known as the Bengal cat. They’re known for their exotic wild like coat patterns. They’re slightly larger than normal cats, and have more of an exotic built, specially in the face. Zero was born into a litter of four kittens, two males and a female. He was born from Natina, and King, both regional champions for “best in show”. Originally, Zero was one of the kittens who wanted to be kept to breed with and take in show, however things changed…
When Zero was a kitten he was bottle fed, being taken from his mother and siblings almost immediately, so he never knew what true family love was like. Ontop of it all, Zero had been born differently from the other kittens in his litter, he was born blind. His master could never figure out why he'd never look directly at her or his littermates when they made noise. However when his blue eyes turned to their natural blue colored, she saw the paleness in his eyes and realized he was blind.
Growing up blind was not easy, however he learned to live with it. His sense of smell was stronger and so was his hearing, so he relied on them to tell him where he was, who was near and various other things. Sometimes it didn't even seem like he was blind. However he still had some mishaps here and there.
When he became older he was introduced back to his litter, his sister Snow, a silver Bengal just like him was the runt of the litter. Although Zero had been away from his family, he felt very protective of her, and was with her for most of his times growing up. One by one his litter mates where sold off for thousands of dollars, and when time came for him and his sister to go, Zero was very unhappy. He clawed his masters trying to get away to save his sister. In the end he was cadged and the owners who originally wanted him denied the offer and gave the master back their money, saying he seemed to wild to keep in a house with young children.
Although the master was fairly angry with Zero, she loved him nonetheless and treated him like royalty. He lived inside the house with his own room! He had a nice kitty bed, and all the toys and kitty condos he wanted. The other house cats who where of normal breeds respected him greatly. Zero had good friends in the household, his best friend had been a snowshoe cat by the name of Night. Night followed Zero nearly everywhere, and they where very good friends, Night was loyal and would do anything for Zero, and Zero felt the same way. However he felt a pinch of emptiness in his heart.
Thus, when he reached the age of 6 months, he declared he was running away to do some “soul searching”. Everyone was sad and protested however Night said to let him go, trusting his judgment and his discussion, also knowing fairly well he would never change his mind. Zero thanked Night, and everyone for everything they’d done for him and left the mansion.
Personality: When first meeting Zero one would think at first glance he was rather intimidating. However, if you spoke to him you would discover he is very charming, polite and kind. While this is all true he is also very mysterious and keeps to himself a lot. He often puts on the classic prince charming façade, acting kind and gentle to others, especially Snow. However when it comes to other toms or people he sees as a threat to him or Snow he gives off a terrifying aura which would send chills down anyone’s back.
Zero works hard, patiently, and methodically, with original intelligence and reflective thought. While he may not always enjoy helping others, and will not go out of his reach for another he is very just and will help those in need. Behind this tenacious, laboring, and selfish exterior lies an active mind and sincere soul. While his balance and strength inspire confidence, Zero can seem rigid, obstinate, and slow. However, being very mind oriented Zero is capable of predicting an outcome early on. Zero greatly impress others as a leader, fearing neither responsibility nor risk. Zero hold up his high standards as a model and severely judge those who don't aspire to maintain these same ideals.
While Zero is not social or a party animals, he tend to be quiet when in a party. When the center of attention however, he is very modest and says little. In the end he will retreat to be in solitude where he can relax and get some quiet time alone to himself. Although he appears to be tranquil, in fact, Zero is ponderous but impulsive when angry. He is capable of fearsome rages, therefore, it is better not to cross the pureblooded Bengal. Zero while you would not think it, he can indeed be fairly stubborn and dogmatic. He believe in his decision and will never regret. He are also very close to his family(Snow). disappointedly, Zero often find that those who are close to him just fail to understand him. Nevertheless, he is patient, and caring, making him a grand friend to have.
Being born under the influence of the “royalty” he is a kind, caring soul, logical, positive, filled with common sense and has his feet firmly planted on the ground. Security is his main preoccupation in life, and he is prepared to toil long and hard in order to provide a warm, comfortable and stable nest for himself and his loved ones(Snow). Strong-minded, stubborn, individualistic, the majority of him is a highly intelligent individuals who doesn’t take kindly to being told what to do.
When it comes to personal relationships, Zero makes a solid, steady, reliable partner. He can be tender, devoted, sensual even and very romantic. Very affectionate to those close to his hearts, he is cold and distant to anyone outside of his trust circle. Getting close to Zero is a very difficult task, for he holds all but his chosen few at arm's length. However, once he has committed, he’ll make a loyal, steadfast lover. Although he may not show it, his emotions are deep and passionate and he is really insecure. If his love is spurned or if he should suffer a broken heart, he will retreat inside himself. Generally, he make no mistakes in the judgment of others, for he is very observant.
