  • their dirt:
  • life goal contrary to popular belief, robert would very much like to brave the dating pool and find the one person he's truly meant to be with. past experiences have him somewhat traumatized by love, of course... so this isn't an easy feat. still, robert knows that he has (literally) forever to gain the courage it'd take to put himself back out there, so for the time being, he seems quite content focusing on himself while hoping someday he'll meet a woman that can understand his reluctance.
  • biggest wish after seeing everything that his younger sister claire-julia has been subjected to by people he and his siblings were meant to trust, robert's biggest wish isn't for himself,but rather for his sister. he wishes that she finds the happiness he feels she deserves. happiness that comes without expectation and without expiration. happiness that has her loving the life she was giving, and that has her wanting to continue living for herself, not just for those around her.
  • biggest fear the one fear that robert has vocalized the most is the fact that he deeply fears becoming anything like his biological mother, fiona. as some of fiona's children have shown symptoms of mental illnesses she was once plagued with that led to her death, robert can't bear the thought of ever putting his loved ones through the trials and tortures fiona had inflicted upon them. because of this, robert was quick to begin treating his symptoms of mild depression in hopes of catching it in time,
  • dirty secret on the same note as his biggest fear, robert loathes the fact that, should he be subjected to the mental illnesses that his mother endured, he could very well cause harm to someone he cares about. that said, after violetta and justin betrayed his trust (and his heart) as thoroughly as they did, robert has had many, many thoughts of ending both of their lives. while this isn't something that he's vocalized let alone attempted to execute, it worries him that he has no shame and no guilt in these thoughts.
Robert Benedict Dunn was born to Benedict (Ben) and Fiona Dunn, alongside his four siblings. While quintuplets aren't unheard of in werewolves, the birth of Robert and his siblings was quite the event, as few werewolves are able to take their children to term, let alone the entire litter. While all five share the same birthday, there is still an oldest and a youngest, as they were born naturally, not via c-section. Sean is the oldest, with Robert, Zachary, Claire and Brianna following behind by mere minutes.

Ben and Fiona chose to raise the children in the countryside, as they were quite rambunctious growing up. Fiona struggled to grasp motherhood, as she had been turned (by Benedict) into a werewolf shortly before she had conceived the quintuplets. As a mentally ill human, the transformation had begun to take its toll on Fiona's mind and mental state; this put a lot of strain on her marriage to Ben, but Ben powered through the hardships during this time in an effort to give his growing children the childhood that they deserved.

The quintuplets aged quickly, as most supernatural children do, and slowly began developing their own personalities. Sean and Claire being the most wild and rowdy of the bunch with Robert and Zachary being the most timid and reserved. Brianna was somewhere in the middle, clearly struggling with mental illness — just like her mother — from her early teens onward.

Fiona's mental illness really began to show as her control on her young children began to waiver as they grew. With each day of independence that they gained, Fiona grew more bitter and more hostile towards her children. She favoured those that still needed guidance and to be coddled, like Brianna, and instigated tension and feuds with those that didn't. Claire took the brunt of Fiona's irrational moods, as she was the first of the five to begin dating, and was the first of the five to lose her virginity. Ben desperately tried to deflect Fiona's hatred of Claire by picking fights with his wife in a hope that she'd leave his oldest daughter alone, but this only worsened things between Ben and Fiona all the more.

Robert tended to steer clear of the drama within his family, never wanting to take sides. While he knew that his mother's reactions to events in her childrens' lives were unwarranted, it was also extremely hard to side against the woman that loved and raised you which was precisely why Robert kept to himself as much as possible. This eventually led to him beginning to spend more and more time with a local vampire by the name of Violetta, something that made Robert's father's skin crawl, as Ben loathed vampires. Still, seeing that Robert had a safe place to stay while things at home heated up with Fiona had him approving as much as a werewolf possibly could.

It had only taken a few months of spending so much time with Violetta before things between the two turned romantic. Robert eventually moved in, leaving the chaos of his family behind him, but always ensuring siblings like Claire knew that the door to his new home was constantly open for her.

Claire met Jacy Black just before she enrolled in her first year of University, and given just how hostile Fiona was when Claire began this relationship, Claire chose to live on campus to avoid her mother's wrath. Already Fiona had verbally targeted Jacy and his family, picking fights with them at every turn; Claire knew she wouldn't be able to focus on her studies if she were to continue living at home in that situation.

This freedom gave she and Jacy the freedom to be alone, which resulted in a very-shaken Claire learning that she was pregnant. This put quite a bit of strain on her relationship with Jacy, but both decided to keep the triplets, even through both of their families disapproving.

Given just how dangerous Fiona had become (as she had placed an explosive device on Ben's motorcycle during the worst of their disputes and permanently injured his leg), Ben ensured that all of his children had places of their own in New Orleans (where he and his family chose to relocate to) and, in purchasing Claire's home for she, Jacy and their triplets, moved in to assist them with his new grandchildren upon Claire was cut open on Jacy's kitchen floor by Vince — her father's closest friend — when she realized her unborn triplets were suffocating inside of her after her placenta tore, and she birthed a son that she named Aiden, and two daughters that she named Ayla and Aria.

Seeing all that Claire had endured as a new mother had Robert turned off to the thought of having children of his own. This was a boundary that Violetta had crossed when she had brought home a young girl named Ele that she had happened upon, and while Robert stuck out their relationship despite this, it was something that made him extremely uncomfortable. Claire was struggling through motherhood, and the thought of him in those same situations turned his stomach.

Maybe it was a blessing in disguise that Violetta had ended up betraying Robert, sleeping with one of his family's friends behind Robert's back. Learning that Violetta and Justin had slept together had ripped Robert's heart straight out of his chest, and had prompted him to move out and back in with his father (who had separated from Fiona) the night he had learned of Violetta's infidelity. Of course, this turned his entire family against her and, even to this day, the Dunn family seems to have little patience for the vampire.

By this point, some of Robert's other siblings had begun living their own lives, too. Sean had begun a relationship with a local named Tyson, and Brianna had begun dating a couple of guys here and there, as well. Zach remained pretty reclusive, and Ben — who had been living only for his children — had even begun seeing other women during his separation from Fiona. This ended up resulting in the birth of the quintuplet's half-sister, Laila. A half-sister that they love and cherish as though she has always fully been theirs.

Laila didn't come into the picture easily; when Fiona had learned that Ben had been trying to move on from his marriage with her, she had hired two men to beat the woman carrying his unborn child in a vain hope that it'd force the woman to miscarry. While it has never factually been proven that Fiona was behind this savage attack, it's something that her family is very confident she was responsible for.

Despite the abuse that Fiona had been unleashing on her children and her estranged husband, Ben decided to try and give it another go, truly believing that he could right Fiona's mind. He felt immensely guilty that he had turned her when she had been so unstable, and truly felt as though he needed to be the one to "fix" her. That said, that put a lot of distance between he and the quintuplets, as only Brianna wanted to associate with him while he was back with Fiona. The others had more of a sense of self-preservation than that, and Ben understood that wholeheartedly.

During this time, Claire took on Ben's weekends with Laila (as he had arranged a joined custody agreement with Laila's mother), as no one felt comfortable with Ben having Laila around Fiona (for obvious reasons). This allowed Ben to be able to spend time with his newest daughter at Claire's house on the weekends while still trying to work out his marriage with Fiona.

Upon seeing just how malicious Fiona continued to be as she had tried a couple of times to have words with a very young Laila, Ben finally called it quits with Fiona and filed for divorce. Fiona left (somewhat) quietly, and relocated back to Ireland where she had originated from.

Things between Claire and Jacy grew toxic; he had taken a job as a psychologist in New York which had resulted in an affair that he had ended up having with a woman living in New York. After the three months he spent there, Jacy came home to tell Claire of the affair, but not wanting to suffer the same fate that her parents' relationship had, Claire tried to give it another shot with the father of her children, even going as far as to accept a proposal from him. The two were only engaged for a little over six months when Claire finally called it quits, no longer able to trust Jacy.

Ben met someone new, a doctor named Trinity Olson that was extremely well known in Italy, where Ben and his family relocated to next. She was an American that had travelled there for work and had taken to caring for Ben and his injured leg that still had never fully healed from Fiona's infliction. The two had slowly started to fall in love, even though both tried to hide it as best as they possibly could. It wasn't until a year and a half into their quiet romance that the two had opted to move in together, accepting Laila into their home full-time as they moved back to the United States together. Robert was the first of Ben and Fiona's children to begin referring to Trinity as 'mom', feeling she had been more a mother to Ben's children in such a short amount of time than Fiona had been their entire lives.

When the day came that led Fiona back to New Orleans, shit hit the fan in the worst of ways. After abducting both Brianna and Trinity, Fiona subjected both her own daughter and her husband's new girlfriend to tortures no one could have ever expected of Fiona. It was Ben and Vince who were able to rescue the two from Fiona's grasp, and it was Ben who put Fiona out of her misery once and for all, ending her life with his own bare hands in an effort to keep her from harming any more of his children.

Robert opened his own business around this time, seeming to enjoy carpentry work. He became quite good at what he did, and began getting quite a bit of business around the city. Starting off by repairing old doorsteps and building wrap-around porches, eventually word got around regarding Robert's talent, and he was needing to hire employees to assist him with projects as large as building the homes of those willing to pay the steep price that was often associated with such.

Trinity took on the role as a surrogate to her and Ben's close friend Sera, not knowing that she was carrying a set of triplets of her own, fathered by Ben. Trinity birthed Sera's son (whom was named Seren) as well as her and Ben's triplets, which Ben named Justice, Paxton and Verity: two boys and a girl.

Brianna, though mentally ill and using any drug she could possibly get her hands on, had two children of her own, too. A set of twins she had named Adrian and Aylee, though no one knew of these twins. Instead, she (and Damien, the father of said twins) left Aylee on Claire's front doorstep (quite literally) in hopes that Claire would give her a better life than they could. No one knew that Brianna had birthed twins, not even Damien, and it was with Adrian that Brianna was able to have some leverage over her family with. Using him as a pawn to extort money from Ben in hopes of using it for drugs. Still, Ben offered her enough money to get her through the year in exchange for the toddler, finally reuniting him with his twin sister.

Originally, Sean and Claire had moved in together in an effort to raise Claire's triplets and Brianna's twins together, but as Claire met two men (a set of best friends named Xavier and Ben that she had fallen in love with), and as Sean fell in love with a local doctor named Eireahann, both felt a new plan needed to form. Especially since Claire's two boyfriends grew and trafficked some of the best marijuana on the globe. The new plan was that Claire's boyfriends (along with Claire's brothers Zach and Robert) would build Sean and Eireahann a beautiful home to raise the twins in, as Sean felt ready to take the next step with his girlfriend. With Damien now clean and in the picture, Sean continues to work out a custody arrangement to allow the twins' biological father into their lives.

With Brianna being held in a supernatural rehabilitation center in Switzerland and with Robert's family owning a long dirt road out in the bayou of Seattle so the group can live close to each other, Robert has never felt more at home in his life. Knowing his siblings and his parents are a mere mile up or down the road gives him a huge sense of relief and has done wonders in assisting him to begin enjoying his life once again.

triggers:

None.

familial

Robert has a massive family, and it always seems to be expanding, though it's usually through natural means (with everyone welcoming children into their lives). Robert does have some single siblings, and there are some younger children in his family that could be adopted once they're old enough, but they will not be welcoming characters that simply want to be "estranged family members" or "family they didn't know they had", as the family is so large to begin with.

Please note: I will only add "family" in this section that take the time to reply to this shipper page to plot with this character, so be sure to do so!

pets

Obviously, pets are not adoptable on-site; this is more so a way to track the pets that this character has for future reference, and to show those who might be curious what this character's pets look like! You can view the pet pictures by clicking on the pet's name! I am open to plots involving this character's pets if you come up with any, however!

platonic

Robert doesn't long to make friends; he's an extremely reclusive being, and would likely get along better with males than females as far as platonic relationships go. Any friends of his would have to get along well with his family, as he would cut them out of his life if they disliked or attempted to mentally or physically harm anyone he cared about.

Please note: I will only add "friends" in this section that take the time to reply to this shipper page to plot with this character, so be sure to do so!

romantic

Because Robert prefers to keep to himself, and because he is so turned off when it comes to love thanks to his past relationship, he doesn't really put himself out there romantically. He doesn't have much of a desire to find someone that could love him, nor does he put much thought into settling down for life. That said, some one-sided crushes would be somewhat interesting; Robert would have no idea how to handle someone having feelings for him.

Please note: I will only add "lovers" in this section that take the time to reply to this shipper page to plot with this character, so be sure to do so!

antagonistic

As Robert's sister Claire is one of the only female alphas in existence, and given the fact that she mans the largest werewolf pack known, one that he is a member of, it shouldn't come as a surprise that the Dunn family surely has quite a few enemies out there. Hunters that want to rid the world of werewolves altogether, other packs that want to kill off pack alphas in hopes of adding the survivors of the packs to their own. Hell, even men that have issues with females in positions of power; the possibilities there are endless.

Please note: I will only add "enemies" in this section that take the time to reply to this shipper page to plot with this character, so be sure to do so!

other

First and foremost, I am open to plots not listed here; these are just some ideas I have that I'd like to do eventually! I'm also open to doing threads from this character's past!

Need some ideas to help you plot with my character? I'm open for plots involving:

one night stands, friends with benefits, open romantic relationships, exclusive romantic relationships, one-sided crushes, mutual crushes, affairs, male friends, female friends, immediate family members, distant family members, male family friends, female family friends, coven/pack-mates, bad influences, rivalries, enemies, frenemies, co-workers, employees, business partners, stalkers, physical attacks, sexual attacks, plots involving drugs, plots involving alcohol, plots involving addictions, comfort/support, dramatic plots, fluffy/romantic plots, hot and heavy plots, silly/goofy plots, horror plots and angst plots.

Want to help me with some of my own plot ideas? I'll list them below:

01. I would love for Robert to be able to make a solid male friend that gets along well with his family, and that understands that Robert is not a social being. Someone that he could bond with that maybe enjoys the same sports and same outdoor activities as Robert, that wouldn't pressure him into socializing him more than he's comfortable with. That said, it'd be interesting if the male friend was a supernatural being that Robert and his family aren't entirely familiar with. Having a few "what the fuck is this; what the fuck is he?" moments would be classic.

I will add more plot ideas here as they come to me, so check back! feel free to offer some of your own plotting ideas below! ♥
