Still not eating much, sometimes has trouble sleeping. However, in all a pretty healthy pupper.
Big. Black. Finally growing into those long, long legs. Agile despite being a very big girl. Fantastic swimmer, ever-improving fisher. The worst hunter to walk the earth. Dark coat, the only black one in her litter, spiced up with some lovely browns and silvers strewn into her coat. Notable brown collar. Bright, brilliant, oceanic eyes. They truly are the window to her soul. Pretty smile.

She's cheery, she's fun, she's adventurous. Splash delights in the world around her and loves learning new things. She's got a great attitude, and is plenty laid-back. So long as everyone else is happy, Splash is happy. She's got a healthy respect for nature, instilled by a few scary run-ins with water and nasty lil' crabs, plus the admonitions from her mother, but she certainly isn't scared of it. Splash doesn't seem to be scared of much, actually. She is a little on the naïve side of things, but that definitely doesn't mean she isn't smart. Splash tends to say what she means, and exactly what she thinks, too. Which is not always a good thing. Her drive to keep everyone happy around her helps to counter this, but she isn't especially good at reading others until they become close.
Splash has been raised pretty free-range, making her very independent. While her mother may have slipped away from the Cove to find her lost siblings and father, Splash has chosen to stay. She has grown apart from her family, and wants to make her own path. She's got more than enough spunk and stubbornness to do it, too.
Her more empathetic side is hurting pretty badly since losing not just two older siblings and a father, but now a mother and sister. Splash isn't one to let much drag her down but she's being affected heavily by her loss. She values family, even if she has grown a bit apart from hers, and the painful reality of being left with fewer and fewer wolves in her circle at the Cove is beginning to sink in.
Come and Behold-James Joshua Otto.
-Dislikes sand, but loves the beach.
-Doesn't realize she's a big wolf, very physical.
-LOVES water. Can't fall asleep without the sound of water nearby.
-One of her favorite hobbies is sparring! She is not very good at it yet though.
Splash Aekyr-Laroche was born to Pace Aekyr and Vincent Laroche in the Hidden Cove, the middle child to be born. The majority of the Tribe was there to witness her arrival into the world, including her older siblings, father, uncle and aunt, and various other Tribe members.
Splash's eyes had barely opened before her father disappeared, along with her older siblings. She does not remember them, what they looked like, smelled like, sounded like. She only knows they exist and their names thanks to her uncle and mother. She was a bubbly child, arguably the most active puppy in her litter. One of her first fuzzy memories was Yuna, or Una as she first called the cream she-wolf, and her first 'meeting' with the healer taught Splash she did not like the taste of sand. Yuna would prove a wolf who has, so far, never left Splash's side and she feels close to the older female, regarding her as something of an aunt or second mother.
The Tribe's numbers were few but they were strong, and Splash grew bigger and stronger surrounded by love. She's had few male influences in her life, the main one being her uncle, Dante, who she definitely looks up to, and Bucky in the south, who is something of a more distant but nonetheless influential friend or big-brother figure. Splash was, in her early days, very attached to her sisters, but as they grew older they began to develop more independently. She didn't make very strong freindships with the other female pups in the Tribe around her age, but she did enjoy their company. Splash was, and still is, a rather brazen child. She has few fears, and while not a bad thing it doesn't always work in her favor, either. She often came home with scrapes, bumps or bruises under the coat she took great pride in resembling her mother's. Splash has developed into a tactile child, who deeply enjoys learning and physical activity, but doesn't care much for feeling excessively restrained. She enjoys affection and time with those she cares about, and she can be a little bit much at times to handle, bumping up close as she babbles brightly about something or another, but she's been given space to find herself and she need that space.
Also, she really loves the ocean.
