1.  Appearance

1.1  Basics

Essentials

  • General

Bluethroat is a little thicker than an average coyote, with a boxier muzzle that is telling of her wolf blood. She is not quite as thick of limb as her mother and grandmother, but she is well-muscled as a result of hard work on the farm and training with her cousins. Her fur is smooth and silky, but does not serve her well during the winter. In Optime she is athletic but feminine, with wide hips and voluptuous breasts.

Forms

Lupus

Blue's Lupus form is the most telling of her wolf blood, though she might be mistaken for a pure coyote. She is long and lanky with thick shoulders and something like a mane along her nape. This is not a common form because it's not of much use on the farm.


140 lbs (64 kg)
44 in (112 cm)

Secui

Her limbs become quite thick, and her mane grows out. She uses this form more than Lupus.


187 lbs (85 kg)
5 ft, 10 in (178 cm)

Optime (Preferred)

In Optime Bluethroat is strong and curvy. She has an athletic, feminine build, and carries herself with pride.

5.  History

Bluethroat was born in the family barn early one morning in the middle of the winter of 2013, the only child born to Winnowill Versailles (eldest daughter of Morning) and a passing trader named Jarli Wade. Her father didn't stick around to see her birth, so she was raised without outside influence by the entire Versailles clan. Most influential in her upbringing was her grandmother, of course; her Uncle Uppy;, and her three "cousins," Sage Versailles and Molly and Abam Riot. Through Morning and Winnowill she learned how to work on the farm, through Uppy she learned that tranquility of mind serves one best in life (he also was the first to introduce her to weed), through Molly and Abam she learned mischief, and through Sage she learned how to traverse society. Other, smaller lessons were gleaned from her numerous other relatives, but these did the most to form her in her earliest months.

A few months after her birth, three Luperci by the name of Novosad stumbled upon Versailles and decided to stay for a while. A month later came another small group - two dog hybrids and their young black-furred daughter Andras Novosad. When the child's parents perished of an unknown illness the Novosad couple adopted her, and she became Bluethroat's closest friend. She was still pretty young when she headed north to find her "sister," Svasra, and Blue found herself jealous of this shadow from the Novosad's past.

Her mother gave birth to two more pups with one of the three Novosads - the elder brother of the woman (and the man who raised Svasra), named Aree. Blue occupied herself with their childhood and matters on the farm. She took on the role of guardian and spent much of her time training and sparring with Molly and Abam. Within several months Andras had returned with Svasra. Jascha Pastukh arrived mere days later with a large group of traders, and the farm was quite crowded for a month or so.

Andras, Svasra, Jascha, and Bluethroat became inseparable during that month. So when Svasra and Jascha disappeared suddenly Bluethroat and Andras were left confused and suddenly empty. Andras left the farm a few weeks later to look for them, and didn't return.

In the summer of 2015 a caravan of traders passed through Versailles on their way north. They'd been attacked recently and were in desperate need of a caravan guard - Bluethroat joined them, despite her grandmother's enraged protests. They made slow progress towards their destination: Freetown.
