Jayden Sefu Hunter
Main Character / Team Muscle
Huntsy (Casual nickname for the Huntsmammal)
No one (Initially) /
Greyish-brown with spots
- The frustration of not having been able to avenge his family (Initially)
- The collective need to put a stop to Clawe and his legion (After his recruitment into the Crusaders)
His judgment is clouded by frustration due to lack of closure (such as the vendetta he couldn't fulfill), leading him to become resentful, and rash if provoked/angered enough
If he finds a felon, a thug, or even an ex-Drowned, they're likely doomed to suffer at the hands of the Huntsmammal
Beside his resentfulness he also tends to snark

2nd Purple Sky incident
In his youth, Jay lived with his mother and brother, and the three were among those who survived the earthquake-tsunami in Zootopia that was afterwards named "the Wave".
Then, came the rise of a terrorist cult known as "the Drowned". Jay's family was caught and —as he, hiding, saw it all unfold— put through the group's "initiation". While his brother survived and was taken into the cult, his mother did not. Her death and his brother's abduction sparked hatred and a desire for revenge within him. However, he never got an opportunity to avenge his family, as soon enough, the Drowned fell at the hands of the city's group of newly deputized superheroes, Team Ceartais, leaving Hunter with no closure whatsoever. Thus, he grew up living bitter and sorrowful, starting to frequent a bar to drink (though still underage) at around 18.
Enter the second Purple Sky incident, in December 2038; Jay is one of the many that are affected and gain powers. After beholding his newfound abilities, he makes the decision to become someone new: a vigilante. Thus, Hunter begins to search for thugs and felons as a way to vent out his ever-burning frustration, quite lethally... Eventually being dubbed "the Huntsmammal" by the news.
This, however, eventually leads him to catch the attention of a crime organization going by the name of " ", after killing a few of its members. Thus, an enmity is sparked between the hyena and the syndicate, which culminates into a one-mammal raid carried out in their HQ, annihilating nearly every member and fueling the vendetta of Clawe, the group's head, even further.
Some time after the formation of , the Huntsmammal finds someone he never thought he'd see: . Due to her exact resemblance to the Drowned's leader, Hunter goes into a rage, chasing and attacking the cheetah. Luckily, before he can do much damage, he is found and apprehended by the Crusaders, who also take Marina in. Jay is then persuaded to work with the team, on the condition of him not taking a single life more, in exchange for not going to prison and getting help to let go of his long-lasting grief and frustration. He's then given a rifle (albeit more resembling a crossbow) loaded with non-lethal ammo so he doesn't use his powered claws and fangs as often.
NOTE: "Huntsmammal" is due to the setting (Zootopia), where "-mammal" is used instead of the suffix "-man" (Idk if this is official tho?? I'm just going off of the Take A Stand fics)
