Adam Hauptman|Alpha


Moon Called

  • Adamya40
  • Boss133
  • Sarge237

Physical Description

Moon Called

  • Five foot ten, a hundred and eighty pounds. Dark hair, dark eyes32
  • His face and coloring were Slavic: dusky skin, dark hair-though not as dark as Mercy's-wide cheekbones, and a narrow but sensual mouth. He wasn't tall or bulky, and a human might wonder why all eyes turned to him when he walked into a room. Then they'd see his face and assume, wrongly, that it was the attraction. Adam was an Alpha, and if he'd been ugly he would have held the attention of anyone who happened to be nearby, wolf or human-but the masculine beauty he carried so unself-consciously didn't hurt. Under usual circumstances, his eyes were a rich chocolate brown45
