He’s very calm, cool-headed, flexible. He isn’t stubborn or impulsive. He carefully weighs his options before he acts, to the point where he occasionally gives orders to Gin. While this is unorthodox for a spirit group–especially a court–the two are best friends and on equal footing, so to have one give the other orders is seen less as disrespectful and more like friendly suggestions. When he isn’t with the court, he’s out scouting for a large, empty home for them to move into. The ranch has only grown more crowded over the years.

He’s often underestimated as a weakling or not much of a threat as the result of his height, when in reality he’s one of the deadliest members of the entire tribe. Perish is skilled in various martial arts and lethal fighting styles. He comes off as impulsive and reckless, when he’s actually very calculating.
Vanish is quiet, sneaks up on others easily, though he doesn’t mean to startle anyone. Love suspects that he and Thunder are in a relationship, but have not shared her suspicions with anyone for fear of outing them. Fear has come to the same conclusion.
He’s a sweetheart, considerate, picks up signals easily, and communicates his points efficiently. His ability makes him an excellent lookout and marksman, and it also means he can’t be pranked by Chase or the kids from Wave Three.
Hate’s soul mate bond with Love humbled him greatly; she got him to let the walls he built around him fall to grant her access, and the two became close fast. He’s crazy about her, and very protective, so he and Fear have given her extra training outside of Cross’ sessions. Fear has also provided his new sister-in-law with a few hunting knives and two pistols, all painted rose gold to suit her aesthetic.
