“Not a pervert. Just black.”

Mercurial is a lightly built young man who moves with an effortless, soft-footed flare, always dressed in casual, loose-fitting attire even when its inappropriate. He is a free-thinking, unique soul, looking the part, with his smooth complexion, sea-green eyes, and unruly mass of chocolate-brown hair. A self-assured, lopsided smirk is his most common facial expression, although the cerebral young artist is certainly no stranger to giving faraway, thoughtful looks to the sky and any passerby.
