{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!

Siblings

Flintlocke, Donovan, Damascus



Appearance: Diego is a burlier version of Flint with the same pale timber coat, maybe a touch lighter in some seasons. His eyes are a light gold with green flecks if you're sharp of eye and standing close enough to see them.
Personality: Loyal to his eldest brother, Diego knows Flint's going places, and he isn't afraid to use his muscle to back his swifter, sharper brother up when he needs it. Not that Diego's stupid himself, far from it. He has a sarcastic wit, is a formidable hunter and a decent fighter. He's just not a leader, and he's well aware of this. He isn't above telling lies if he thinks he can get away with it, and he can be a bit of a macho man and show off, especially around pretty girls. An attention seeker, it's probably a good thing he and Flint are close so his brother can drag him out of trouble he sniffs out.

History: Diego was lastborn of four males. His father Lucian was the domineering type who placed great stock in his boys, hardly seeming to care when their mother died when they were five months old. Lucian raised the boys with an iron paw, encouraging rivalry and infighting to toughen them up.
Lucian died mysteriously when the boys were just over a year old. Donovan split from the family straight away, casting some suspicion on him that he had something to do with it. Diego stuck loyalty with Flint throughout.

Notes: He has heard of his great-aunt Kaya, his aunt Maverick and Jasper but never met any of them. He does know that Lucian hated Jasper, whom he grew up with, but doesn't know it was because Lucian was jealous of the bond Jasper and Maverick shared when they were young.

Flintlocke, Donovan and Diego



Appearance: Arguably the most handsome of the litter, Damascus is the only darker coloured yearling of the four. He's a mottled grey all over with pale cheeks and light golden eyes. He's average build, but tall and long in the leg, brutally swift when he needs to be.
Personality: Damascus is stoic, calculating, and doesn't like to give away much. Being a quiet observer means he actually has quite a good sense for people. As to what might be going on behind those innocent looking golden eyes... well, that's anyone's guess. The only one who knows all his secrets is Damascus himself, and that's the way he plans to keep things. He was close with his father despite his constant bullying and harassment, and though his brothers have no idea, Damascus took his death hard. It was the main reason he stuck with Flint and Diego for some months after Lucian's death - trying to discover in his quietly cold way if Donovan really had done it.
Damascus' reserved nature comes at a cost; his sanity is not quite as it should be, perhaps due to his admiration of a ruthless and at times abusive father. It's likely to be his relationships where he betrays this weakness. As with anything he perceives as weak, he does his best to contain it.

History: Damascus was thirdborn of four males. His father Lucian was the domineering type who placed great stock in his boys, hardly seeming to care when their mother died when they were five months old. Lucian raised the boys with an iron paw, encouraging rivalry and infighting to toughen them up.
Lucian died mysteriously when the boys were just over a year old. Donovan split from the family straight away, casting some suspicion on him that he had something to do with it. For a time Damascus traveled with Flint and Diego, but eventually decided he'd be better off on his own and left the other two with some tension surrounding the split - they thought he might be running off to find Donovan.

Notes: He has heard of his great-aunt Kaya, his aunt Maverick and Jasper but never met any of them. He does know that Lucian hated Jasper, whom he grew up with, but doesn't know it was because Lucian was jealous of the bond Jasper and Maverick shared when they were young.

Siblings

{Abaeze}



Appearance: Lapis takes on more of her father than her mother, with a stockier build and shorter in size, as well as the mostly matte black fur. However, she does carry a thick and fluffy coat that her mother did, and the warm umber shades of her mother's pelt can be seen in her undercoat when the weather is warmer. Lapis also shares a similar eye color to her mother, a bright and striking shade of amber.

Persona: Lapis' personality has been shaped and molded differently from her previous two players, and there is much to be said as to what has been built. Both a leader and a follower, she knows she is able to make others follow her, but is willing to conform to others based on either her beliefs or a need to fill accepted. Stubborn and prideful, characteristics molded by being a Black, as well as a child of the Hellmaw Empire (now disbanded). Her loyalties and kindness are wavering, and where and when they lie would be up to the adopter. However, what should be known and remain an attribute to Lapis, is that above all, she is an individual who has been affected by her crude upbringing and her personality should reflect this.

History: Lapis was born alongside her twin brother {Abaeze} to {Igbo} and {Lux} of the Hellmaw Empire. They were two wolves who had to prove their strength, their loyalty, to their Empress who, although had her own way of showing gratitude and love, was ruthless and manipulated others to bend to her will and service based on her own needs//wants. The Empress had her own three children, as well as an adopted child. When the Empress died, Igbo took it upon himself to raise the other children of the Empire, leaving Lapis and Abaeze to raise themselves and question why it was their father loved the other children more. These feelings of unease and uncertainty were only enhanced when their mother disappeared while they were still very, very young, and would have very little memory of her as an adult. Growing up, this made for divisive times within the family, as well as within the pack. The Hellmaw Empire began to crumble under the weight of seven children and two adults, with no real leadership in place, and the politics of pack-life further divided not only the pack-mates, as well as parent and child, but also the relationship between Lapis and her brother. They began to distance themselves from the pack, from their father, and from each other, and after a heated argument, the two have never spoken since.

Important Notes to be aware of: Lapis grew up without a mother, and much of a father figure, and was left to her own devices to grow and learn.
Lapis was learning to be an herbalist, or have basic concept knowledge of medial herbs. It is up to the roleplayer whether she will continue to learn once adopted, but Lapis should have some sort of understanding of basic herbs.
After a heated argument at the age of six months, Lapis and her brother Abaeze parted ways and have not seen, heard from, or heard anything of/about, the other since.
Lapis has been readopted twice already, and the players of the Black parents (at the top of being put up for readoption a third time) have gone inactive. Please, serious inquiries only to adopt her, as it is ideal to have a player who would deeply love playing her and developing her regardless of where she goes.
Lapis' personality has been changed over and over again from when she was originally created to her current standing. Personality is therefore flexible, but it is important to keep her history in mind when writing her to determine how she will grow into an adult.
It is up to the player whether they would like to keep the same wolf as her appearance, but it is preferable to run what you have in mind by me, only to keep the general gist of what she is suppose to look like based on her parents. She is more on the stocky, short, and black-furred (mostly) side, and therefore would not be a thin, long-legged wolf with a wide variety of color in her fur palette.

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.

{Benvolio}



Description

Perdita is a small wolf. She is a little more round compared to her brother, but that only puts her at a barely average weight. She is unlikely to grow or fill out much more. She is a similar timber color to her brother with amber eyes.

Personality

She is intelligent, and tends to order others around as her complex plans require. Independent and vindictive, but also loyal and playful, the little wolf can be difficult to predict.
All other facets of their personality are up to the adopter.

History

Perdita Nym was born into an pack of about a dozen wolves living in the Rocky mountains. Her mother was an old wolf when she gave birth to her first, and last, litter of pups. If more pups were born, they did not survive, it was only her and her brother Benvolio. Perhaps it was their mothers advanced age, or the lack of their father in their lives but the two siblings were not well supervised or socialized in their early days.

Instead, Perdita and Benvolio spent almost all of their time solely with each other. Mother had no energy for two small, rambunctious pups, and so as long as they were breathing, she did not see fit to otherwise involve herself. Their early days were typical of pups, playtime and exploring. While not outcasts from their pack, no one else in the pack wanted to be responsible for someone else's pups, so the siblings saw the rest of their pack only in passing.

This lifestyle did make the two young wolves quite self-sufficient. They learned to hunt and survive together, by trial and error. They ranged far from the pack and only saw fit to follow their own whims. The siblings grew unusually close; they had inside jokes and phrases that meant nothing to others in their pack, but would set the siblings into fits of laughter over their jokes together. They were protective of each other and went everywhere together. The two could have been mistake for mates by those who didn't know them.

Little did the siblings know that it was only their mothers presence as an elder that kept the rest of the pack from sending the useless, and odd, siblings away. When their mother passed of old age Benvolio and Perdita were heartbroken; while they had not been close to her, they still loved her as all children love their mothers. The pack wasted no time in finally chasing out the two wolves they felt no affection for. Perdita cursed her former pack for their hatred as the siblings departed.

Benvolio and Perdita went west from their pack, escaping the threats that they would be killed if they ever returned. The pair quarreled - for practically the first time in their lives - each blaming the other for their expulsion from the pack, and each knowing that they did not truly mean their harsh words. In his anger, Benvolio ran away from his sister, leaving her in the foothills of the mountains. Perdita felt abandoned and immediately sorry that they had fought. She looked for her brother but could not find him. Angry and vindictive, Perdita circled back to sabotage her former pack. She succeeded for some time, but was eventually caught in the act, narrowly escaping with a maimed hind leg.

In the past months apart from Benny, Perdita has been traveling and surviving on her own. Exactly what happens during this time is up to the adopter.

Perdita was briefly in Horizon valley - see her account for more information.

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.

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.
