{Catrine}, {Eadwin}, {Rabanastre}



Description

Ire is on the smaller side of her family, but her short, comparatively slim build has given her a sleek and athletic look. Like all of the others in her family, her fur is predominantly white with speckling of darker colors in a few spots. She matches her sister with sharp orange eyes. Ire is a pretty wolf and tends to look younger than her years.

Personality

Ire is a fun wolf above all else. She loves to joke and laugh and play games. Cheering up others is something she specializes in and she always seems to be able to make her friends smile. She can be silly at times and tends to get along great with puppies. She can have a hard time when others need comfort but she is more comfortable providing jokes. Hunting is her passion, but she still finds the fun in it when she can. She is dedicated to her family and those she loves. Like her sister, Ire has a big of a gluttonous side and loves to talk about - and eat - her favorite foods.
All other facets of their personality are up to the adopter.

History

The Kingdom of Bor was a very strict Monarchy. A King, and Queen ruled, with Bishops (the healers), Knights (the warriors), Rooks (the hunters), and all others as pawns. Typically, those that had a rank other than Pawn were held in a slightly higher regard, since, to be a Bishop, Knight, or Rook, wolves had to show excellence in their chosen area. The King usually selected these chosen wolves by paw, or the senior most of the Rank selected them.

Born in the Kingdom of Bor alongside her three siblings - Rabanastre, Catrine, and Eadwin - Ire was the second smallest, but always made up for her size with her personality. From a young age she was motivated and capable. She soon was taken on to become a Rook - a top notch hunter for the Kingdom. She had a positive relationship with her family, though all of her siblings were drawn in different directions for their service to Bor.

Ire’s life in Bor from early adulthood to now is almost entirely up to the adopter, including other relationships she had. From late HY3 to the present her siblings have slowly been leaving Bor and traveling south. Ire has chosen to follow her siblings away from the Kingdom as well, her reasons are up to the adopter.

Sóley is a creature of loyalty. Her inner core is that of immense care towards those she trusts, but she can be harsh and judgmental during first meetings. After one wins the approval of Sóley, however, she is beyond devoted to their well being. She is strong-minded and equally stubborn but is also extremely brave and daring, willing to risk everything for her allies. She often shows many signs of dauntlessness, courage and determination. Perhaps the most prominent trait about Sóley is her intelligence. She is an intellectual genius, as well as clever and witty. She's analytical and strategic, preferring to plan out a battle beforehand rather than rush into one. In all, Sóley is a calm, reserved and reasonable being, but also stoic, serious, fierce, and extremely pragmatic.

{Likah}

Juniper †



Personality

Shy - Reserved - Quiet

Karliah's personality is up to the player for the most part, though the top three characteristics I have listed are pretty set in stone.

Karliah is a reserved wolf, unlike her brother. She tends to not speak unless spoken to, and isn't one to go out of her way to make friends. It's what she saw through her early life, and even though she has seen other she-wolves act otherwise, she tries to remain polite and proper.

Appearence

Karliah looks somewhat similar to her brother, though she is much leaner than he is. Her coat is thick and fluffy, a mixture of warm grays. Her eyes are a light amber color.

Pre-Horizon History

Karliah was born alongside Likah and Juniper to Lupe and Zena. They had a rather normal pup-hood, except their father was rather abusive to their mother. He would often lounge around the small clearing that they grew up in, waiting for Zena to make time to hunt his food for him. And if she didn't do it fast enough, then he would abandon the pups while they slept to go give their mother a few good bites around the face and return home to insult and pick on Likah and Juniper, the larger of the three.

One day their mother snapped, her normally polite and harmless personality vanished. Instead, a horrible monster inhabited her body. She fought back against Lupe and accidentally killed Juniper in the process. Zena blamed it on their father, going even madder and taking their father's life too.

Likah and Karliah left the clearing that night, too scared of their mother to remain there. They stayed together for a time, but Karliah left after she and Likah got into a small argument over Likah's way of handling another rogue. Anything that happens after this point is up to the adopter! I just wanted to put this here so her and Likah's history are relatively the same until they split.

Appearance
York is a tall creature. Not heavily built, but fit enough. His ebony coat is thick and coarse. Hairs of ivory cover his toes, underbelly, and mandible. The wolf's most notable feature might be his striking blue eyes, contrasting against the darkness of his cloak. A coldness typically graces his features. He doesn't try to be approachable, nor does he want to be. His posture is generally slouched, like a fighter who subconsciously seeks to keep the most fatal areas protected. Stealth isn't his forte, because he doesn't particularly care.

Personality
Irritating York is a rather simple task. While he knows to be polite, his already waning patience can be worn even thinner. Doing the right thing is not his objective: keeping York alive and well, is. At heart, he is a loner. He is feral; emotions were never his strong suit, nor the feeling of remorse. Often, he is unreliable, doing whatever he feels like at that moment. His loyalty is fickle unless he somehow feels bound to another - those instances are both rare and fleeting. He can be blunt and painfully honest; thusly, he has found that saying as little as possible is best. At the end of the day, he never says the wrong thing whenever he is by himself.

I have permission from Sam to put York up for adoption! PERSONALITY AND APPEARANCE written by sam!

Up to player



Trevor is a timber giant. Giant body, giant black-rimmed ears, giant paws, giant nose... And like many giants, he's a very gentle one... or would like to be. Trevor has terrible luck, and a lack of coordination and very low intelligence means he's often an unintentional nuisance and tends to hurt more than help. Calling him clumsy would be a kindness, he has no coordination and its frankly only due to pure brute forth that he brings down any prey, sometimes when he's only trying to play with the smaller critters, because he sure as sunshine can't put a strategy together to save his life.

Olive eyes, placed under black eyebrow-like facial markings, show no spark of hidden cleverness; he was born dull, and he's aware that he often bungles things when he's trying to be helpful, but doesn't understand how he gets things wrong. He does recognize the problems he causes are his fault, however, happy and cluelessly carefree only up until his dumb butt messes up, and then he becomes overwhelmed with shame. He was Bad. Sometimes Trevor is a Bad Boy. He's sorry he's sorry he's sorry he's sorry...

Appearance:
As the runt of the litter, Reece is the smallest of his siblings, thin to the point where most people think he’s ill. His coat is mostly blonde with one white ear and one black ear, a black tipped tail, and he’s got amber eyes.
Scars:
None

Personality:
Childish, rambunctious, simple-minded, oblivious.

Bio:
Childhood (Birth - 8 months)
Reece is a pain in the ass, but friendly and more easy going than Gus. He is content to wander on his own, lonely as it is, but doesn’t know enough about living on his own to leave. The child has little fear of Laurel and her ways, possibly because he is slightly simple, but no bond or respect either. Reece gets along with all his siblings, barely knows his parents, and is perfectly fine playing with or talking to anyone who will entertain him. One day, he’ll set off on a grand adventure. He did better than bare minimum on Laurels lessons, knowing to defend himself, but a poor hunter at best.

Coloration Siblings

{Adhara} and {Auberon} (biological) and {Azalea} (adopted)



Born in the Evergreen Forest's Clearing as part of the Evergreen Wolves, with his siblings Adhara and Auberon. The family soon moved into the caverns to be closer to the rest of the pack, as the Evergreens were going through hard times with many wolves leaving or dying. In time, Adler's parents were nearly the only ones left, and had to raise many more pups that had been abandoned. Adler had as normal a childhood as possible when considering the state of the pack, but he didn't really form any special attachments to anyone. Maybe that made it easier when more wolves kept dying and leaving, including some of the other pups, or maybe he was just too young to understand, but he went on with his life without stopping to grieve, more or less.

He does love his family, and looks up to his father especially and wants to spend more time with him, sometimes getting jealous and feeling like his Da favors Auberon in particular. Adler has been diligently working on hunting and patrolling with hopes to become a Vigil someday (really just because that's what Auberon wanted to be too), and also has great interest in exploring farther from home and meeting wolves outside his pack.

Siblings

{Dragomir}, {Larisa}, Serafim



Description

She possesses eyes of silver like her cousin Crixius Blanc, as sharp as glass and cold as stone. Her pelt shows coloration similar to that of the Blanc bloodline with light undertones, however, Narcisa also takes on streaks of silvers, grays, and blacks due to her father's bloodline. Unlike Dragomir with his dark coloration and Larisa with pure white hues, Narcisa falls somewhere in the middle, a hybrid of colors from both sides of her heritage.

Personality

Much like her littermate Larisa, Narcisa holds a tall and lean build, bred for speed and agility more so than strength and brutality. However, underestimating Narcisa would be a bad move made from just about anyone, as she's as smart as they come. Cunning and quick-witted, she tends to use manipulation factors and sweet-talking to get her way out of conundrums. There isn't an honest part to the Negrescu woman as lies have become her way of life and survival. Often Narcisa will intelligently twist the words of others in confrontation, resulting a self-fulfilling victory. Like anyone, there's a different side to Narcisa Negrescu if one is willing to look hard enough and approach her with the right fashion and patience. However, events like those occur rarely and Narcisa tends to stick to her cynical nature.

History

Firm believers of the importance of bloodlines, the Blanc's claim to be descendants of the first wolf, Lupus. Historically, the family—formally with the surname, Lupus—slaughtered any wolf they believed to be impure: those with deformities, abnormal markings and eyes, and/or lack of intelligence. An uprising killed most of the family. The survivors adopted the alias, "Blanc" and became much more private about their beliefs and lived in nomadic familial packs. However, the number of believers continued to grow beyond the original Blancs as their children made their own families with other wolves (there a few cases of inbreeding within the Blanc's).

Rudolph
Adolpha
Fen
Veryn
Accalia
{Tamaska}



Appearance:
The largest of the Sköll litter, Adolphus is a large, muscular male. He has a thick pelt, like the rest of his family, that is full of silvers and whites, as well as dusty colors, such as tans and creams. He has a few flecks of brown on his back, flank, and tail--a reflection of his lineage. His eyes are gold.
History:
The first and largest in a litter of seven, Adolphus was a favorite of his parents, and he received extra attention that his littermates didn't get. Because of this, there is some resentment from his siblings, Tamaska, Adolpha, and Accalia. He also spent a considerable amount of time bickering and butting heads with Adolpha, constantly competing for dominance.
When their father was killed during an invasion from a neighboring pack, their pack shattered. Rudolph, Adolphus, Adolpha, Tamaska, and Accalia met up at an old playing spot. Their mother had always spoke fondly of the sea, and it was a common goal to see it someday, so the kids decided to head that way, hoping that whatever remnants of their family might also head that way. The group headed west, following the setting sun.
Tamaska was the first to go. She was kicked during a hunt and, to the group’s knowledge, fatally wounded. Though uncharacteristic of the family, a pressing need to eat had driven them to finish the hunt, and a blizzard had pushed them to seek shelter instead of going off to find Tamaska. Next, Accalia grew more combatant and irritable. She blamed the others for Tamaska’s death, and decided that she would go her own way. Adolphus was left with Rudolph and Adolpha, travelling westward still.
What happened after that--whether they stayed together or not--is up to you!
Personality:
I imagine he’s assertive and pushy, certainly a dominant character, but also one that deeply respects leadership and usually follows rules fairly well. He’s less empathetic than the rest of his family, but still caring for others, and very unlikely to kill for the sport of it. He’s a good judgement of character, and analyzes those he meets. He’s also very stubborn. You can customize the rest of him how you want!
Relationships: The only solid relationship that I have for him is a very strong, best-friend bond with his brother, Rudolph. He also may butt heads with Adolpha, though now that they’ve grown up and aren’t with all their siblings, that could have stopped. The rest is customizable.

Adolpha dons the thick, fluffy coat that is typical to the Skoll family. Her coat is composed mostly of light creams. Her facial, back, and tail markings are dust-colored, and contain dark tans as well as streaks of chocolate brown. Her eyes are a deep gold color.
History:
The third born in a litter of seven, and the first female pup, Adolpha felt the weight of responsibility growing up, as if her status as the eldest sister bestowed a leadership role upon her. She often found relief from this burden by messing around with Rudolph, pulling pranks and laughing with him when he got in trouble. She was hardly ever scorned, due to her reserved and dutiful personality. She was also notorious for constantly butting heads with Adolphus, vying for leadership over the siblings.
When their father was killed during an invasion from a neighboring pack, their pack shattered. Rudolph, Adolphus, Adolpha, Tamaska, and Accalia met up at an old playing spot. Their mother had always spoke fondly of the sea, and it was a common goal to see it someday, so the kids decided to head that way, hoping that whatever remnants of their family might also head that way.

Next, Accalia grew more combatant and irritable. She blamed the others for Tamaska’s death, and decided that she would go her own way. The rest of the history is up to you!
Personality:
I think she would be undoubtedly-responsible, noble, and dependable. She puts her whole heart and soul into commitment. I think she’d have a realistic view on the world around her, one that isn’t marred by talk of fate or luck. She knows that the world is what it is, and her actions, as well as the actions of others, are the only things that affect it. She strongly believes in justice. An eye for an eye, and only then can she forgive.
She can be commandeering and often assumes a leadership role. Her strong personality can come off as intimidating, and she tries to soften her appearance around others. She’s not good at socializing, so making friends is a slow process. As such, she clings to those she’s already established a bond with, like Rudolph and, though she’ll never admit it, Adolphus.
Relationships: She has a close bond with Rudolph. Their relationship is easy and fun; he takes the stress off her, but they also vent to and get advice from each other.
She has a love-hate relationship with Adolphus. They're undoubtedly close, though their bond was formed on competition. Sometimes it turns to banter, an "I can do anything better than you" sort of thing.
Other relationships are customisable!

Adolphus
Rudolph
Adolpha
Veryn
Accalia
{Tamaska}



Appearance:
Petite and lean, with cute, inviting features, Fen looks radically-different from the other Skoll siblings. She has a thick, fluffy pelt. The fur on her back has light hues of creams, browns, and grays, with a ring of tan around the coloration to act as a border between the darker fur and lighter fur. Her underside is a soft, eggshell white. She has expressive, vibrant amber eyes that are framed by a thick, black ‘eyeliner.’ She’s most likely the prettiest of the Skoll litter.
History:
The fourth born in a litter of seven, Fen is a classic middle child. She didn’t receive much attention from her parents, and as such, she became very independent and feisty. She spent most of her time with Veryn and Tamaska, plotting adventures and talking dreamy hypotheticals. One common dream of theirs was to see the sea someday, as their mother had always spoken fondly of it in her stories.
When their father was killed during an invasion from a neighboring pack, their pack shattered. During the raid, an invader had chased her off of pack lands and injured her hind leg. She had no choice but to seek shelter and rest the wound. Lucky for her, Veryn had tracked her down and was able to care for her until she got back on her feet, though she was heartbroken that Tamaska had gotten separated from them.
When Fen was well enough to travel and hunt on her own, the two decided to search for Tamaska. They scoured the perimeter of their old pack’s borders, and found a clump of what seemed to be Accalia’s fur in a bush. Excited at the lead, the pair followed the trail; the scent was weak, but there were little indications that their family had passed through every now and then. Veryn was an adept tracker, but after a point, even he couldn’t catch a scent. The pair’s progress was halted, and Fen grew restless at the prospect of losing the trial. While recalling their favorite memories of the past one day, Veryn brought up their old dream of seeing the sea, and Fen had an epiphany. She realized that they’d been tracking the group west, and felt certain that that was where they would meet up with the others. They headed in that direction, but one day, Veryn caught hold of Tamaska’s scent--and only her scent. This was troubling, as it meant that perhaps the group had split up, but Fen and Veryn decided to follow their sister’s trail. They lost her near the Starlight Peaks, and decided to find a way around the mountains. As such, they should enter Horizon in Wormwood Grove or the Eastern Wasteland.
Whether Veryn and Fen remain together, and their story from here, is up to you! Personality:
Her small body holds a huge personality. Fen is feisty and active, and very expressive. She’ll always voice what’s on her mind, whether it’s good, bad, or ugly. She’s not submissive and won’t let others step all over her, but she’s not as dominant as her other siblings, as she doesn't possess such a drive for leadership. She’s optimistic, nurturing, and imaginative. She’s idealistic, and sometimes is let down when reality doesn’t meet her expectations. Fen is also flirtatious, and a hopeless romantic. She’s capable of following orders, but is more independent than obedient. Sometimes, she’s disrespectful to authority, but only if there is a lack of respect present, or if her morals are in question.
