1.  Appearance

"Match", as she prefers to be called, is not your typical wolfess. For starters she’s not very big, despite being born of one of the largest wolf species. She stands 5ft 11in tall in Optime form and weighs around 175lbs. At her core she is sturdy and strong, grounded; but her overall build is more willowy, flexible and feminine. Her bust is slightly more pronounced than average.

1.1  Coloration

Her thick, rough but shining coat is colored a mixture of cinnamon (#993300), rich chocolate (#691F01), buttermilk (#F0CB75) and burnt-orange (#B13E0F). In certain light her fur appears to shimmer a tinge of light copper (#C76114). There is a single, small upside-down triangular patch of snowflake (#F5F5F5) upon her chest, between her breasts.

  • Optime Hair: Her fiery persimmon (#F23B0D) hair is asymmetrical, medium-short in length, messy and sassy, with the longest strands framing her face and the shortest parts being at the back of her head.
  • Eyes: Her eyes are a striking shamrock (#159108).

165 lbs (74 kg)
5ft 4in (64 in) (162 cm)

This form is her second most-used form. She retains a powerful, but willowy appearance that is often underestimated.

Match rarely ever uses this form. She appears more sturdy and her weight is more centered in this form.

This is Match's preferred form.

1.3  Other

Modifications

  • Piercings: She wears two small gold (#FFA824) hoop earrings piercing her right ear.
  • Tattoos: None.
  • Scars: Most scars she's obtained have healed well and are hidden beneath her fur. You can actually feel one of them most prominently upon her right forearm. They form a spiral pattern around her arm and wrist. These scars came from a time when she caught a whip with her bare hands to save her brother from a lashing.

Accessories

Match's other accessories include a gold (#FFA824) wide-link chain necklace with a gold (#FFA824) ring with emerald (#0E8C3A) gem accents in the shape of a clover looped through it. It is her most treasured possession, which she keeps hidden down her clothes.

Clothes

Typically, Match doesn't wander about unclad. She usually wears a sage (#577A3A), long sleeve, off the shoulder peasant blouse with a sienna (#603311), leather, front lace up, corset and a pair of tight, form-fitting, cut off, calf length, vandyke (#5E2605) leather pants. She always wears a peruvian (#CD853F) leather belt with its usual attachments: a short sword for defense, a small hunting knife, and a couple small leather pouches of various healing herbs and necessities. Accenting the rest of her leather attire ("armor") are a pair of coffee (#87421F) leather bracers with tree symbols etched into their surfaces. During colder months or when traveling, she can be found wearing a heavy, fur-lined and hooded, sepia (#8B5A2B) leather cloak.

Other Belongings

Other items of importance to Match is her yew bow, elk hide quiver with arrows and a small, wooden, treasure chest-shaped box full of special herbs and spices given to her by her father.

2.  Personality

Ciara is a fiery spirit. Hence why she chooses to go by the alias of "Match". Her temperament is very abrasive and gruff at first glance. She is very intelligent, observant and calculating but often times her emotions get the better of her. She is prone to having an explosive temper if pushed too far which can bring about some nasty, biting insults and less than lady-like behavior.

She can be hot-headed, unpredictable,, persuasive, sharp-tongued and witty as a she-devil. She is a lover of rambunctious partying, heavy drinking and smoking, careless carousing (she has been known to sleep around on occasion, with both men and women, typically when alcohol is involved), bold and blatant flirting, and yet she still enjoys her solitude in between all the socializing. At times she can be sarcastic, blunt, cynical and distant, coming off as uncaring. She hates showing 'weakness' by crying. She tries hard to never get too attached to anyone. At other times, she can show extraordinary finesse, charm and passion, devoting her attention in assisting another or in her work. She is unafraid of getting her paws dirty and has a hard work ethic. She is an adventurous, fun-loving she wolf and when it comes to children, she tries her best to encourage their juvenile ways and sense of wonder. She has a zero-tolerance mindset when it comes to rape, theft or any kind of injustice. She does not however hold contempt for fighting for survival purposes.

Ciara can become easily annoyed and bored. She likes to be busy all the time. She has a guardian complex meaning if she does indeed bond with someone closely she will fight to the death to protect them. She is loyal but not easily trusting. A lot of people will find they butt heads with her more often than not because she can be so difficult and stubborn. She doesn't easily admit defeat.

Yet for all the toughness she shows on the outside, her heart is a good one. On the inside, she's actually quite a gentle, loving soul. She just hides that side of her for fear of being hurt or misused. She is an advocate for nature, respecting almost all living things. Ciara has a deep, almost mysterious, cryptic side to her. She can seem wiser beyond her years and due to her rough past, she does retain many useful life experiences. She likes sharing her knowledge with others and loves to learn new skills as well. She does have a bit of a bad habit of eavesdropping and sticking her nose in places she shouldn't though, which gets her into trouble. But usually she can fend for herself with both wit and weapon. She can be a little set in her ways, but with those she trusts and is close to, she does loosen up.

Overall, Match is pretty rough around the edges but as a person she has her head on right and views the world with a meaningful perspective, always trying to see or seek purpose in everything she does.

6.  History

Born Ciara Bríddn [Kee-AR-uh BREE-din] beside her brother Riu Bríddn in Newfoundland, her parents Mhearai Bríddn [MAIR-ee] and Graedi Bríddn [GRAY-dee], did everything they could to ensure their children grew up prepared to face the real world. Always hating her given name, Ciara swiftly adopted the alias Match. She does not share her true name with many. As she grew up, Match perfected the art of combat and honed her survival skills. She soon left home and joined a band of traveling mercenaries and was immediately accepted into the group. Along the way in her travels she took many jobs and fell in love with one of her cohorts, a charming male named Ádhamh Connery [AHM Con-REE]. The two were very close, courted one another and were due to be married (Ádhamh gave her her horse, Crossfire as a pre-wedding gift) when out on a particularly dangerous mission, Ádhamh was killed. After the event, Match hardened herself against the world and left the band and set off on her own seeking solitude in her grief. Today she wanders around, taking jobs here and there, getting into trouble and partying hard but typically she never stays in one place too long.
