Canes Venatici (Barus Nerynus) by rennegades Canes Venatici (Barus Nerynus) by rennegades
oh em ge, it's Barus motherfucking Nerynus. Long time no see, B. 

Barus has been brought out of "retirement" to become Constellation-Senshi's Canes Venatici, the Senshi of the Hunting Dogs constellation.

Ripped right from his old profile we have:

Name: Barus Nerynus [b-AER-us NAE-ree-nus]
Age: 17 (18 in Year 2)
Birthdate: February 26
Height: 6'10"

Personality: Barus is an amazingly cheerful and upbeat guy. No, seriously. Despite what the image above might show, he's cheerful and upbeat. He's just been taught that a uniform should be worn with respect, and therefore he will show it respect (despite it being a magical construct and that his bad habit of popping buttons and bursting seams if he moves around with any of his usual exuberance does not effect it). He is loud and boisterous, and really doesn't understand the meaning of personal space. Especially if there is something sweet involved; the boy adores his sweets. Barus would likely jump on people if it wasn't for the fact that he'd probably squish the majority of the people he knows under pure muscle. As it is he's fond of draping himself across shoulders and leaning on people. More than once he has been compared to an exuberant puppy.

This dork actually wears his brooch as a clip-on necktie. He really is far too invested in the idea of wearing suits and ties, despite having no real reason to do so, and his baffling habit of picking shirts that are too small for him.

Barus has several tattoos, although the only ones that are (slightly) visible when transformed are the dog heads on his neck-- one on either side. They are jokingly named after the dogs in the constellation: Asterion (left side) and Chara (right side).  His other tattoos include a pair of black 'bands' around each wrist, a rather ornate stomach tattoo, a winged design with a "Z" in the middle (in reference to his missing friend Zaniel) on his left shoulder, and another ornate design consisting of a heart and an "x" on his right shoulder with a bunch of random lines thrown in for fun. Reference Image for his tattoos

Family: 

  • Father: Marcus Nerynus (Nurse)
  • (Step) Mother: Carla Nerynus (Travel Agent)
  • (Bio) Mother: Anita Vega (Unknown)


History: (Work in Progress)

Born in Greece, it's only a few weeks after Barus is born that Anita leaves her engagement ring on the counter and disappears out into the world. She has had no contact with him since then, and Barus generally does not care. He doesn’t believe that his biological mother could be any more awesome than his “true mom” Carla.

Marcus met Carla when Barus was six months old, while she was on vacation in Athens. They keep in contact when she goes back to America, and the following year Marcus and Barus vacationed in Utah with her. For the next five years they went back and forth between Athens and Salt Lake City; even before they were married Barus referred to Carla as “Mom”.

Barus will fight anyone who doesn’t believe him that he has the best parents ever—who else has a mom who arranges a bungee-jumping trip to the Grand Canyon for a fifteen year old? Okay so it was for his dad, but he totally went and got to jump too.


Powers/Abilities:
Canes Venatici relies on a partner ("the hunter") for any sort of 'ultimate' end to an enemy. His powerset is very much based on that of a flushing gun dog: that is to say he finds and flushes out the game/target/enemy, so that the hunter can take the shot. 
  • Innate: Track & Mark: Once a target has been found he is capable of keeping track and remembering where it is, no matter how many distractions pop up. Unless it moves while he cannot see it.
  • Offensive: Canum Impact: Canes Venatici stomps the ground hard to create an explosion that sends the target into the air and opening them up to further attack. The explosion may cause damage or stun the target, depending on the target's own abilities.
Friends:
  • Catori Moxie [Sailor Lynx] - Big Sister, Shenaniganizer, rough-housing, and parkour pal.
  • Landon Shepherd [Warrior Lupus] - Big Brother, "Impromptu Wrestlin' Buddy" (rough housing), sports friend, parkour pal, and "stealth" attack target
  • Elmonica Darby [Sailor Dorado]
  • Iolana [Sailor Volans] - Year 2 Spoilers: they be dating
  • Caliean Allaway [Warrior Canis Major]
  • Bernadette Blake [Sailor Coma Berenices]
  • Ophora Kissaba [Sailor Apus] - Year 1 Crush
  • Fevziye Yilmaz [Sailor Centaurus] - Fellow Speaker of Greek and Occassional Saviour from Americans
  • Mariana Torres [Sailor Tucana] - Adrenaline Addicts Anonymous. Just without the anonymous.

Just commented now, but he is such a cutie~! //squee His tattoos also give me so much life :33

If I can, I propose Ibarra being friends with him, even though she's seriously tiny next to him (she's a foot and five inches shorter) and even tattoo buddies! She'd starting to get her fair share of tattoos from Priss (which I have to put together in a reference) and she's even a hobby-baker who tries out different Pinterest recipes for her coworkers and friends to try out ^^

rennegades Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2015
Oh goodness, Barus will be her friend forever and ever and ever just because baked goods! Having someone to chat tattoos with would also be awesome~

On the surface Ibarra's personality seems a lot like his childhood friend Zaniel's, and that would draw him in even without the baking to pave the way; though the fact that she's actually got a pretty strong will of her own would shoot down that comparison rather quickly... heh yeah I can definitely see these two being friends. I'm totally up for it! :D

Just imagining the two on Pinterest browsing cool tattoos and nice recipes gives me life ^^

And, yes, Ibarra always lives to surprise X3 So she would smile at his surprised face once she 'innocently' steamrolls him on a topic.

It is a rather cute mental image. "Have you seen the [insert tattoo/recipe here]?" "Nooooo" "Right, lemme show you right now!"

Ahaha steamrolled is a good way to put it. The first few times it happens Barus would totally be like "wha... holy crap, straight out of left field!" and it will still catch him off guard even when he's sorta expecting it!

The thought of them dorking out like that is too cute though! Her spaciness probably doesn't faze him either XD

Like, when debating cool places for a tattoo, she would just be like, "A wrist tattoo is delightful. I mean, look at this!" in the middle of his statement cx

I love this giant puppy!  The mix of the tough exterior and intimidating build with the core of a giant, excitable softie is just impossible to resist.  :)

I think he and Coma Berenices would jive well, since she's very laid back.  Not as energetic as Barus, but definitely cheerful and optimistic.

Yeah, I can see them getting along. Cheerful and optimistic are definitely good traits to have when around someone as... relentlessly cheerful as the big dorky puppy :D

He is one big pup. A whole 1'2" taller than Caliean/Canis Major. (and he's supposed to be the greater dog XD)

Their relationship would probably be more laid back, as Caliean isn't that big on fighting (unnecessarily, that is). They might spar once in a while, though.

rennegades Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2015
Heh, well Canes Venatici is a constellation of two dogs, so thinking of it that way Barus is really just two 3'5" dogs standing on top of each other XD (I dunno, it's an amusing mental picture for me)

See, now I'm kinda picturing the relationship my dog has with my brother's dog as the one between our pair.  My dog is older and likes to sleep, while my brother's is hyper and loves attention. Which sometimes includes badgering my dog until he gets up and runs around with small dog for a bit.

That is an interesting mental picture.

I'm guessing that Caliean would be like your dog in the relationship (he is the older one anyway, even if he doesn't look it)

Moar hunters!! *^* He looks absolutely fantastic and I'm with SailorAlcyone on this: Hunters Pack!!! He'll be a great addition to the team. Which means I'm super curious how he would work out with Arina, since he's the most like her, Hunter-wise.

Hunters ftw~!

Heh, that'll be an interesting one to work out! Either Hunters-yay wins out, or B proves to be really annoying in his enthusiasm Either way it makes me giggle.

WingsForDreams Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Haha I'm definitely excited for their interactions. Arina doesn't really get annoyed with others as much as overwhelmed xD Which would most likely happen with Barus. I also know that most of her relations with others are those who have latched on and she doesn't really get a choice xDD And if the previous Canes Venatici was in the Hunters Pack, he/she was most likely bros with Orion xD So I'm totally down for working things out between Barus and Arina! And I saw his powers needed a partner/hunter, and with the overwhelming mutts to hunter ratio, I'm sure we could work something out with Arina~

:iconrennegades:
rennegades Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2015
[laughs] it's definitely the way Barus works: "We're friends now." "what?" "Friends. Us. Now. Okay?" "...what" "Let's go get icecream!" Impulsive 17 year old puppy goooooo~

At this point, I think it's a given that Canes Venatici was in the Hunter's Pack, given how much fun all of us seem to be having with the idea! Figuring out friendships and relationships is probably a good idea wink :P 

It's kinda funny how many dog constellations there are. I know Canes Venatici came about because of a mistranslation, but it makes me giggle because "oh yeah, this is totally another dog. the sky always needs more dogs, who needs hunters?", and how it's reflected in the group turns the giggles into laughter, y'know?

Yeeees. XD Arina can learn to deal with a big puppy. And I can definitely see a good working relationship between them out in the battlefield. After all, with all these mutts, we're gonna need a hunter. She'll just have to get used to it xD She can work with ALL the dogs! XD
