1.  Personality

  • Wallflower: Clara is fairly shy and quiet, and rather content to just stand in the background where others might be more sociable, though she isn't painfully timid. She is rather soft-spoken and tends to act bashfully if forced to converse with others, though she's friendly enough around those who are patient.
  • Gentle: She is quiet and caring, especially good with timid canines and puppies. She also has a way with more docile herbivores such as sheep.
  • Proud: Although she acts bashful and modest when her goods are complimented, deep in her heart, Clara is very proud of her work and knows how good she is. Her healthy pride never escalates into arrogance, but it does keep her from undervaluing herself or being manipulated.

2.  Appearance

Clara is small, her heritage prominently coyote with some hardy terrier blood in her. She is lean and wiry, agile, with a distinctly coyote gait. Her bushy tail, overall build, and ears are more coyote, while her muzzle is a blend with her dog blood, and her fur is short, soft, and a bit wiry thanks to her terrier blood.

2.1  Coloration

Her fur is predominately Muddy Waters, with a lighter underside and tail-tip of Raffia. This lightens even more starting with a "bib" of Bone, which splashes her cheeks and forms a stripe up the middle of her face, as well as dotting her brows. Copper blankets her shoulders and spine, as well as patches her face around that white blaze; her hair is this color too. Her eyes are Driftwood, just a shade off her darker copper coat color.

Motivations

  • Cloth: Due to her constant job as a seamstress in Casa di Cavalieri, Clara is always optimistic about doing more for her pack in terms of clothes and different cloth items. She strives to be better when she can and to make people happy of her talent.
  • Pack Members: While she is shy and a bit of a wallflower, letting others converse around her, she does not want to see anyone in her pack hurt. She doesn't like to see that. So, she strives to make life inside the pack lands better for the others.

Biases

  • Packs: The only pack she has a bias against is Anathema and only then because of their actions that caused problems for several of her pack mates.
  • Species: Currently Clara possesses no biases towards species.
  • Non-Luperci: Clara has no bias against non-luperci though because of her upbringing, seeing them was once rare to her so she has a slight interest.
  • Gender: Clara has no distaste for either genders.
  • Color: Clara possesses no bias toward any color.
  • Sexuality: Due to her upbringing, Clara views every type of relationship as natural.
  • Age: Clara possesses no biases towards age.

Sexuality

  • Nervous Approacher: Exceptionally shy about feelings and sex.
  • Asexual: Clara has never done anything sexual with another individual. Because of this, she has not made a move to get to know someone in this manner. She has urges like everyone else though hers are more inclined for the soft touch rather than full on intimate contact.

Substances

Spirituality

  • Agnostic: Clara believes that there is higher power out there but has not really found something one way or another that sways her feelings on religion. She keeps a constant lookout for proof that there is a god. She'll even prey once in a while, though she makes no effort to actively support any religion.

3.  Interaction

  • Speech:
    • Soft, somewhat shy.
  • Scent:
    • Pack: Damp Earth / Freshly felled wood
    • Individual Traits: Floral (Lilly and Honey suckle) / Sheep (livestock) / Cotton
  • Body Language:
    • Around pack members, Clara is still somewhat shy in stance, somewhat slouched or completely upright.
    • Around strangers, Clara closes up. Her posture actively demonstrates this, perhaps with her ears flattening slightly or her tail slinking lower.

5.  Abilities

Strengths

  • Fabric Creation: Master - Clara is skilled at various methods of creating cloth; she can spin as well as weave and knit. She is a decent tailor and can easily make adjustments to old human clothing for Luperci use, or sew a tear in a cloak.
  • Livestock Care: Apprentice - Though not as great around rowdy animals such as horses, she does have a natural ability to work with sheep, llamas or alpacas, and other creatures that might produce wool for her uses.
  • Rope Dart: Journeyman - Her weapon of choice is the rope dart -- a long rope with a metal dart attached to one end, which can be spun and swung around and used to hitting or binding opponents, just to name a couple of uses. She usually spins the end so the fast-moving dart startles or distracts the opponent before striking. She's made its use an art form, and dislikes really using it in actual battle unless provoked first.

Weaknesses

  • Hunting - Clara cannot hunt very well. She was not taught this skill growing up and has never made a move to learn how to do so so she relies on others for food. Not to say that she cannot capture a rabbit or a squirrel here and there.
  • Shyness - Clara is not cripplingly shy but she does have a slight timidity to her that causes her to shirk the occasional social interaction.
