Character Information


general information

British Columbian x Mixed

||

111 lbs || 32.4 in || 6.1 ft

His coat is a combination of multiple colors, but is primarily black. Various shades of umber, tawny and white litter his frame. His sharp facial structure is masked in ebony, as well as his ears and all four of his long legs. A fluffy patch of white sits just below the back of his ears, across his mouth, and the fur on his rear. He has a noticeable white, vertical stripe that stands out against the salt-and-pepper fur across his shoulders and back. Black undertones are covered by a thin layer of white fur across his back. A patch of chocolate-colored fur rests on his chest and gradually pales down his stomach into a cream shade. A light patch of chocolate-colored fur also patches the fur just above his shoulders, and unconnected, to below his shoulders. Aside from the vertical, alabaster stripe- Aksel's most noteworthy trait is his cerulean eyes. Bright and deep in tone, the are a standout characteristic against the dark hues of his face.

Aksel has reached physical maturity- and is at his peak adult height, length and weight. Unkempt and typically ruffled, his fur is wiry and coarse to the touch due to a lack of self-grooming, only gradually growing worse during the spring and summer seasons. When he cleans himself up, his fur can be more soft, fluffy and thick, especially during the autumn and winter seasons. His face still carries that youthful, boyish joy- but caught in an unobserved moment, his expression is rigid and pensive- as if lost in deep thought. Aksel is very leggy and long, lacking the same muscular, structured and stocky builds of his father and brother. Muscular structure has slight build around his shoulders, and growing slowly in his legs from the constant labored, tricky navigation through the Emerald Labyrinth. Although tall, his stature is by no means imposing. Rather, his size and build make him very agile, flexible and speedy.

Persona

Goal: To become apart of the Twilight Vanguard, and keep those who both align themselves within the pack, and live within the borders of the Emerald Labyrinth, happy and safe.

Strengths: Compassionate; Honest; Loyal.

Flaws: Apprehensive; Meek; Solemn.

As a child, Aksel was very no-nonsense, practical and serious in manner. He aimed to impress his parents and make them proud, and this ruled out all acts of childhood joy and play. Instead, he focused on being both knowledgeable about the world around him, as well as becoming a skilled hunter. This eventually led to the start of some estrangement between himself and his siblings, giving room for determination and ambition to drive him to live up to the Holt legacy. These characteristics were only further-fueled by his mother's death, and it became both an obsession and fixation in his life, to live up to what his father expected of him- both fearful and guilt-ridden when he couldn't do what was asked or wanted of him.

After his own path and his father's diverged, Aksel's personality transformed into one of an aimless, reclusive wanderer. As the time alone grew longer, he grew frantic and paranoid that other wolves were watching his every breath and step, judging him from afar, and ultimately believed that he was a walking, talking failure and disgrace. Venturing out of Avalon, alone with his thoughts and carrying this perspective, the trauma of having lost his mother began to fog his mind- and at some point, clouded his memories in amnesia. He became timid, anxious, skittish- stuttering when he spoke, quick to feel panicked, flighty at any sense of trouble or danger, even if not to himself directly. Constant turmoil would result in frequent melt-downs, unaware of who he was, why he knew what he didn't (or didn't), and clueless about his continuing purpose.

Now as a young adult, after having rediscovered his mother's grave, and alongside the compassion and loyalty of his friends- Aksel has grown into a more self-assured, confident, joyous being. He has since regained his sense of seriousness, but also possesses that sense of playful child-like behavior. He has grown to trust the friends he has kept close, although is often still anxious and cautious around strangers unless given an open, warm welcome and/or invitation. Slowly he is growing to be more compassionate, trusting, and calm around strangers. Reclaiming his home at the Emerald Labyrinth has brought back that sense of responsibility, ambition and determination- but in a healthy, stable part of his life. He feels it his duty to protect his adopted family and his home, and now makes it a high priority to patrol borders (even to the furthest stretch), bring in extra cache, and offer both council and companionship to those whom he considers family.

Spring Event
HY4

Early

Aksel comes back to the Horizon Valley. He meets {Beauregard} who goes by the name 'Alexander,' and also meets {Nayomi}. Injured and starving, he attempts to flee, but the female follows after him. He and Nayomi reunite, with the familiar face of {Icarus} in tow, who triggers repressed memories within Aksel. The three travel together and Aksel meets {Ross}, one of Nayomi's friends, and the four decide to travel together. Late at night, Aksel talks to Icarus about the past, and learns about his family, his home, and his former pack. The following day, the four of them decide to travel together to the Emerald Labyrinth and make a temporary home there.

Full

Aksel travels with {Icarus}, {Nayomi} and {Ross} and finally arrive at the Emerald Labyrinth. They decide to stay and make it their temporary home. After getting use to their new home, Aksel finds an angry Ross scratching at a tree, and the two bond over their own personal endeavors, in which Ross finds out about Aksel's memory loss. Soon after, he finds a saddened Nayomi who asks him to tell the others she's taking a trip. Settling into his former home, Aksel discovers a grave and calls to Icarus who tells him it's the grave of Zehani. At the mention of his mother's death, Aksel recollects all of his memories, and the two decide to make the Labyrinth their permanent home and unite their friends there. He decides to take take some time off and travel, and meets {Ashka}, a rogue girl much younger than himself. When they split up, Aksel meets a seagull chasing boy named {Callum}, and joins the male in his game. Attempting to enjoy his last day or two of travel, Aksel visits the evergreens during a sunny morning- but a rainy day ensues, and {Rathbone} suggests that he should leave the territory because Aksel's on pack lands.

Late

Returning home, Aksel is greeted by a blind stranger named {Opal} who asks to touch him to identify him. He then reunites with Icarus and Ross as well. Ross informs Opal, Icarus and Aksel that there was a fight between Nayomi and Ross. Aksel finds out that Nayomi didn't want Icarus to be Chieftan and thought they didn't have the skills to unite as friends, and their fight resulted in her leaving the Labyrinth. Although disheartened, Aksel meets some new friends staying in the pack, a pregnant {Atalya} and her mate {Artem}, settling into their home while she gets ready to give birth. A ghost from his past, the familiar face of {Josalyn} shows up in the Labyrinth, tucked away in her old den and sobbing.

beginnings: a horizon history


From childhood, Aksel was the walking definition of uptight. Level headed yet stubborn, he was not so willing to involve himself with the shenanigans of his siblings. Despite this, he was never a match for his brother's brawn or his sister's wit. For a short while, this vicious cycle was repeated. Often against his will, he would be dragged into situations when he would much rather have been wandering alone, studying the world around him in solitude. At six months, however, his world was shatters. His mother succumbed to rabies.

It shook their foundations, and shattered their already strained family. Eerik fled, and Astrid stayed behind. Aksel, however, opted to seek their largely absent father, Bjorn, for help. He sought to reunite his family, including Bjorn this time, and rebuild. For as much as he secretly resented their antics, Aksel's family was his entire world.

With Bjorn at his side, he searched for his missing brother for months. It was in this time that he was faced with more of the weight of the world than he had anticipated. It was here he learned the world was cruel, and that no matter how you pined for peace and ease of mind, it did not wish to grant it to you. It was here he learned his birth was no product of love, but pride. A cheap attempt at redemption. It was here the term "family" began to lose it's meaning. The name "Aksel Holt" began to sound like a stranger's.

They found Eerik on the beach. He had made a home there. He had started a new life. Detached from family. Detached from the suffocating responsibility of carrying on a legacy, upholding a name, pleasing the ancestors he would never know. And for the first time in his life, Aksel envied Eerik. A simple mind. So simple. How had it been so simple? So easy? That night, Aksel forced himself away. Away from the only home he'd known. Away from the remnants of his family. Away from the place his mother died. It had seemed so easy. So mindlessly simple; like breathing.

And it was, for the most part. It turned out that his days spent in solitude, practicing his hunting, learning the land, orienting himself with the world around him; it helped him to survive. Through harsh winters as he traveled north, and a particularly barren autumn. In his time away, however, he hardened. He withdrew even further within himself, hardly speaking to those he passed on his venture. His aimless venture. Aksel never sought the company of others. In fact, he avoided them. He wandered for months. It was soon that he found he no longer knew how much time passed. Day and night morphed, months drifted, season ignited and snuffed in a matter of seconds.

And although he always knew where he was, Aksel became lost. Lost to the world. Lost to himself. So young, yet ancient in the eternity of of a restless mind. Amidst the emptiness of it all, there came a light. The sight of a mother, and he three young. She was brown, like his had been. She led her children through a mountain pass; two dark as night, one bright as snow. Aksel did not know how long he watched them from his ridge. He did not know when it was that he rose. And he did not remember making a clear decision before directing himself southward. Back the way he had come. Back to the place he had never been allowed to truly live. Home, on technicality. But to him, and chance to rediscover what it was to be Aksel Holt.
