Aestus, who often goes under the alias "King Cobra," has been on the run for most of his life. Before the Pyrrhian Fallout struck, he was a bandit that robbed the small, run-down towns of the SandWing Kingdom with little protection from crime. When he wasn't stealing from towns, he was hiding out in the wild, untamed parts of the desert away from the rest of society, He was accustomed to being alone and toughened up by a life of crime.
Because of that, whent the fallout came, he handled it very well. He traveled around the wasteland alone, holding off mutants and stealing resources from abandoned buildings or other dragons. Now he travels with a group of other tough dragons, all trying to stay alive when the world around them has been killed by nuclear weaponry.
It's difficult to ever get a good look at Aestus. He's like a phantom, constantly on the move and using shadows to cloak himself so that he cannot be seen. Even if someone manages to spot him, they'd probably just see him as a fuzzy black silhouette in the distance, or a dark smudge streaking across the wasteland. A dragon can only get a close look at Aestus if he wants them to. The veil of mystery surrounding his appearance helps him survive, as he has learned the hard way that in the wasteland, a dragon can never hide too much information about themselves.
Those who actually do get a good look at him quickly realize that he isn't in the best condition, like most of the wasteland wanderers. He is underweight and malnourished, and combined with his pale scales, this makes him look almost ghostly. From the harsh environment he's in, he's covered in many small scars and has lots of tiny tears in his wings. The most noticeable of these scars is a claw mark that runs from just behind his right eye to the base of his neck. Oftentimes he is covered in streaks of dirt and dust, since wasting time on things like cleanliness gets a dragon nowhere in the wasteland.
Despite his rather poor condition, other aspects of Aestus's appearance are quite intimidating and make it quite clear that this SandWing is not someone to mess with. When he's not trying to hide himself from others, he walks in a cool, confident way that radiates power. His beady black eyes have a certain coldness to them that can be quite unsettling; there is rarely any emotion in them. Even though he's underfed, he's better off than many other dragons in the wasteland, and he isn't just skin and bones. Under his grimy scales there is lean, powerful muscle, muscle that has built up over the years from living in such a harsh, unforgiving environment. He has become quite strong, since dragons in the wasteland who are weak die.
Even with all this muscle, Aestus still likes to wear clothing, not just for protection, but also to help disguise his appearance.His clothing is usually dirty and torn in some places, although Aestus knows that he's lucky to have clothes at all. One thing he can almost always be found wearing is a stolen black army jacket. He also usually wears a belt which he uses to carry supplies and weapons. Sometimes he'll wear a dark red bandana around his neck.
