Short Description: A quadrupedal ember orange-furred beast with a spiky black mane and a flaming tail-tip. Often compared to a cross between a wolf and a lion, his form is built for speed, stamina, and precision.

Four legs. Fur. Tail-flame. And glasses?
Dark red to light orange colors span this quadrupedal creature's pelt and tend to shift depending on how the light hits it. His toned appearance confounds most with the seeming mix of species he must possess, although he is no true hybrid at all. His larger thinner chest and smaller-around belly are similar to those of a cheetah's or a greyhound's body while his musculature seems closer to that of a leopard. One solid look at his face would show a resemblance to the structure of a wolf's, but with a larger nose, nose bridge, and upper lip cleft seen in panthers and lions. His tail is also like that of a lion's, although the tuft of fur at the end is replaced by an ominous flickering flame that casts mysterious shadows across his strange form as it moves about. His ears are pointed like that of a canine, as well, and a pair of armless spectacles sit on the bridge of his nose in stark contrast to the otherwise lack of clothing.
His mane is definitive of himself. A sharp-looking blade of fur juts from the base of his head to the spot between his shoulders, similar yet shorter than that of a horse's mane and altogether more stiff and vertical, and is a midnight black color that shows a faint blue or red, depending on how the light shines off of his fur. His headfur, the extension of his mane up between his ears, seems unkempt. Part of his short bangs hang loosely in front of his face, although a good portion of his head-lining mane haphazardly tussles about in a tastefully youthful manner. He may at times bear saddle bag-like courier satchels attached by harness used for carrying things. If not for the glasses on the creature's face or a familiarity for his kind one might confuse the individual with some type of beast-of-burden.
Calwa is the youngest of four, son of Nanaki, grandson to Seto, protectors of the Buga Tribe, guardians of Planet Gaia, and serve as arbiters of cosmic balance. Centuries after the events of Meteorfall and Geostigma instigated by the extraterrestrial threat JENOVA, the people living on Gaia have moved on. Generally pacifistic unless necessary, the shy bookworm Calwa eventually took up a job as a courier delivering various items either intracity or even cross-continental.
However, one day he was tasked with moving an important artifact to a client whose identity was made to stay a secret. Unknown to Calwa, this object was sought by the mysterious Black Hand organization and various agents were sent to eliminate the courier and retrieve the item. These encounters became more frequent and Calwa was unable to complete the delivery while being actively hunted. During an ambush in New Corel, Calwa leapt from a building during gunfire and the target building vanished leaving him to tumble from the sky. He was rescued by another of his kind named Chiffon and the two became partners for an adventuring enterprise in the mysterious realm called Neo Tokyo. That all changed one day, sadly, when the two were separated. It would seem the Black Hand were far more dangerous and tenacious than anyone could have figured.
They eventually reunited far outside the City of Mabase where the culmination of much abuse and torment was discovered. Calwa was captured by the Black Hand and endured much punishment for his keeping their prize away from them for so long. Despite Chiffon rescuing him with help, the Black Hand managed to escape with the potentially dangerous artifact: The Icon of Weapon!
