XP Unspent/Total: 8/20

Brief Description: Erkan stands what must be nine feet tall, and everything about him is enormous. He's got short, curly brown hair and hazel eyes behind a pair of thick-rimmed glasses.

Appearance: 'Massive' is likely the first thing people think when they see Erkan. He's more than nine feet tall, more than half that across the shoulders, and has hands that could wrap around most people's waists. He's carrying a little extra fat, especially around his belly, which makes him look even more enormous – think powerlifter, not bodybuilder. He's very hairy.

He's got short, curly dark hair, olive skin, and hazel eyes behind thick-rimmed, dorky glasses. He's always looking around, to make sure he isn't going to accidentally headbutt down a doorframe again.

He's got a strong, broad jaw and chin, a prominent Greek nose, and fierce, extremely thick eybrows.

He moves with a sort of precise, careful grace, surprising in anyone, but especially so in someone so enormous.

His voice is an extremely deep rumble; when he speaks, paper rattles. When he shouts, windows shake.

He typically wears hand-made clothes, because nowhere sells stuff big enough. His clothes are all carefully tailored and very high quality; he likes to look good, regardless of what he's wearing, unless he's working out or fighting.

When in his true form, Erkan is even more gigantic. He stands over twelve feet tall, and is even more heavily muscled than before. His head is that of a bull, with forwards-swept, fierce horns that add another foot or so to his height, and his legs are covered in shaggy brown hair and hoofed.

Luckily, thanks to his abilities with spatial magic, his true form remains clothed.

No, he doesn't have a nose ring.

Racist.

Personality: Erkan ascribes to the philosophy of 'walk quietly and carry a big stick'. He rarely raises his voice; indeed, he rarely speaks much at all. He's normally taciturn with a rather crude sense of humour. He sees himself as a supporting figure in the story of other people's lives, helping them out with whatever work needs doing.

What gets his blood pumping is the opportunity to go fast, especially if there's a risk he'll get injured in some way. Fighting, climbing, racing over obstacles – anything goes, if he gets his adrenaline up. When his blood is up, he's much more talkative, and displays a mean, dark sense of humour that isn't usually present.

The one time he acts completely differently is when he's in his backyard wrestling persona; Splash - named for the sound his opponents make when he hits them - is a larger-than-life, boisterous bruiser, who makes Brian Blessed seem quiet and reserved.

He hopes he'll be able to find someone else at Sanctum who shares his love of sailing – boat racing is his absolute favourite pastime.

Erkan really wants to be an architect. He just needs to stop making everything a maze.

Maze - 1: Finesse (Power) How do you think I fit through doors?
Erkan can control space with a deftness and ease that would leave most magicians green with envy.

He can defray some of the desire for violent conflict and heavy exercise by engaging in highly competitive sports, or by fighting someone tough and skilled at a high level of intensity.
