By Eve

Sully - née Donar - is a wolfdog born 20 October 2010 to a small pack living on the coastal foothills of the Netherlands. He is the son of Wodan and Ostara and "twin" to his sister Rheda. Thirsting for adventure and a different life, Sully bid farewell to his family and took a long and perilous journey across the ocean to eventually settle in Nova Scotia.

He joined Cercatori d'Arte shortly before its disbandment in November of 2014 and chose to remain loyal to Skye Collins, following her and what remained of d'Arte north where a new pack was founded. He was a member of Midnight Shores for a while before leaving on a journey of self discovery, upon which he changed his name and befriended and oddly refined elk.

He returned to Midnight Shores in November of 2015 with his best friend, eventual mate, and a former slave in tow. He stayed there and raised a family with his mate until the pack disbanded in December of 2016.

Not long after departing Prince Edward Island Sully and his family landed themselves in Sapient, where he presently resides, ranked Cessavi and settled into an early retirement.

1.  Appearance

1.1  Basics

Essentials

  • Species: Sully is the perfect blend of two species which have melded together so well it is often hard to tell if he is pure wolf or not. Upon first glace he appears to be a slim sleek looking black wolf, but upon closer inspection one would notice the faint streaks of dark silver in his fur, his oversize ears, and thinner sickle-shaped tail which give away his dog genetics.
  • Fur: He has the thick double coat of a wolf but his fur is slightly longer and slightly more coarse, laying flat and sleek against his body and giving him a much more streamlined appearance compared to an average wolf. The most notable feature about his fur is the dark reverse brindle pattern - black with streaks and stripes of faint silver.
    • Optime Hair: None. Due to his short flat lying fur he is not able to grow out his scruff into any form of humanized hair with which to create any sort of hairstyle, and even if he could he probably wouldn't want to.
  • Facial Features: His muzzle is slightly longer, thinner, and tapered a little more than a normal wolf but the difference is almost indistinguishable. Aside from his piercing blue eyes the most notable thing about his features are his large elongated ears which have very little fur on the inside.
  • Build and Size: Overall Sully is built like an average wolf, only slightly thinner, longer, and lankier than the norm. Due to his long legs he is a lot taller than the average wolf but weighs a considerable amount less even though he has a fair bit of muscle underneath his sleek fur.
    • Lupus: The perfect mix of wolf and dog, he looks very much like a slimmer sleeker wolf with a thinner sickle-shaped tail, oversize ears, and a slightly longer body. He is at his most streamlined and well kept in this form, which is deceptively smooth and trim, hiding strong muscle.
    • Secui: He is beastly in this form, his fur growing out and "fluffing" much more than his other two forms, making him look much larger and bulkier than he actually is. He would look like a cross between a wolf and a bear if not for his long slim legs and oversize ears. His brindle pattern is least noticeable in this form, the silver streaks often lost in the dark black of his main color.
    • Optime: His statuesque physique is most evident in this form. He is well built and muscular but also trim and sleek, not bulky or disproportioned. His smooth flat laying fur clings close to his skin and only fluffs out around his neck, on his rump, and on his tail. He is very tall but also much lighter than other males his size due to his dog genes.
  • Humanization: Minimal. Enjoys using weapons and occasional accessories but evidently prefers and enjoys a feral lifestyle.

Coloration

  • Fur: Entirely Woodsmoke A
  • Markings: Faint Woodsmoke B

1.2  Etcetera

Forms


136 lbs (62 kg)
38 in (97 cm)

Lupus

  • Preferred

This is his "go-to" form and is used the most in his day to day life, especially for hunting small and medium sized prey like rabbit and deer.


250 lbs (113 kg)
46 in (117 cm)

Secui

  • Common

His preferred form for feral fighting and hunting large or dangerous prey like elk, caribou, moose, and even other predators.


300 lbs (145 kg)
7ft 2in (86 in) (218 cm)

Optime

  • Common

While used the least, he is nonetheless well accustomed to this form and visits it often when needed or simply when the mood strikes him.

Scars

  • Four long claw scars running diagonally down his left side over his ribs that he got from a run in with a Siberian lynx.

Weapons

  • Twin axes created and gifted to him by his father before he left his homeland. Each axe head was masterfully crafted in hand forged steel and affixed to a dark ebony handle wrapped near the knob in dark stained leather for better grip. There is a hole in the knob of each axe handle where a solid steel ring was placed. He keeps his axes clean and sharp and very rarely uses them despite being a master in axe handling. His axes are his most prized possessions.

Accessories

  • He wears a chromed steel "choke chain" collar in all forms and at all times since it is large enough to adjust to all of his forms. Although a relic of a bygone age it is in exceptionally good condition and well taken care of. On one ring of the collar hangs a large silver coin, well worn with age but still shiny in some places. The collar is another trinket from his homeland - a family heirloom passed down from father to son for generations - that is very dear to him.
  • A dark stained thick leather belt with a special holster on each side to hold his axes. It is a little big for him and hangs low on his hips but does its job well enough. It's something he acquired on his journey and is a little beat up and worn from traveling but in decent enough shape that is does not need to be replaced.

Spirituality

Sully holds close to the spiritual beliefs of his homeland and has faith in a large pantheon of Germanic gods and goddesses. Their beliefs do not differ much from Norse mythology and many Germanic gods are the same as Norse deities by different names. Each god and goddess has something they represent, such as Donar god of thunder and Rheda goddess of victory, after which Sully and his sister Rheda were named. He is by no means devout, however, and does not worship or practice any rituals in reverence of these deities.

Biases

  • Species: While not exactly a bias, Sully does look upon dogs and dog dominant hybrids - especially shepherd breeds - more favorably than others. He doesn't hate anyone though.
  • Gender: Sully is marginally misogynistic in that he often sexually objectifies females. He doesn't think they can be as physically strong and capable as males either.
  • Age: The very young and the very old aren't as useful as adults in their prime and as a result aren't seen as very valuable to Sully. He doesn't outright hate them but he doesn't see much worth in their existence.

Sexuality

  • Sully is strictly heterosexual (Kinsey 0) and only interested in females. Since gaining a mate and becoming a father he has discovered he is a very loyal and devoted male who only wants to do what is best for his family. He is rather romantic and prone to spur of the moment flights of fancy and random surprises, which may or may not garner positive results.

Interests

  • Likes: Clouds, rain, storms, thunder, lightning, sand, ocean, water, fish, sheep, goats, herding, training, sparring, storytelling, and more.
  • Dislikes: Insects, other predators, self-righteousness, authority figures, rudeness, disrespect, waiting, intellectuals, most males, and more.

Substances

  • Since settling down and becoming a family male Sully has given up his rather reckless drinking and smoking in favor of living a much healthier lifestyle for the sake of his mate and pups. He will still drink socially at pack gatherings and so on but has quit smoking altogether quite miraculously and is even grown to dislike the taste and smell of tobacco smoke.

3.  Relationships

3.1  Family

  • Mother: Ostara
  • Father: Wodan
  • Siblings: Rheda

3.2  Relations

Key Relations

  • Skana Creo started out as the sister of his friend, and then his friend, and then his close friend, and then after having puppies together they decided to make it official and became mates. Though he never thought he had it in him, he most definitely loves her dearly and would do anything in the world for her and his family.
  • Vepar Creo ended up becoming his best friend after the two males happened upon each other in the forest one day and got to talking, or rather, Sully was talking and Vepar was not listening at all. It's still strange how their friendship came to be, but ever since then they've been thick as thieves. Sully's always got Vepar's back.
  • Rheda is Sully's twin sister that he left back in his homeland. She wanted to come with him but he made her stay behind to look after their parents. She is tough, stubborn, and a lot like Sully in a lot of ways, which is why he trusted her to look after their family in his absence.
  • Wodan and Ostara are Sully's parents, alive and well back in his homeland with the rest of his family and pack. His father is a strong and stoic male while his mother is lighthearted and exuberant, the two canines complement each other perfectly.

Positive Relations

  • Skye and Esmeralda Collins were his former pack leaders and were well respected and liked. He was saddened by their disappearance and hopes to see them again one day.
  • --

Neutral / Negative

  • Malus used to be Skana's slave but was freed when they left Anathema and now he wont go away. Sully has no feelings for or against him, but he does find it weird that he wont head off and make a life of his own.
  • --

Minor Relations

  • Enemies: None
  • Murders: None

4.  Abilities

Unless otherwise noted Sully either taught herself a particular skill or learned it from his family and pack back in his homeland. He spent many months learning and training with his family and pack and continues to train daily to both maintain and sharpen his skills. He is always willing to learn more about what he already knows and is constantly seeking out new skills to further improve himself.

6.  History

Sully was born as Donar to Wodan and Ostara alongside his twin sister Rheda on 20 October 2010. Their small family, along with many other small families living along the northwest coast of the Netherlands were a part of a pack-like community called Opilio that highly valued shepherds, warriors, and trading. From birth he was raised to do as his father did and was diligently trained to be a shepherd and a warrior, a life he did not choose for himself and as a result did not want it when he was finally of age to make his own decisions and fend for himself. After much contemplation he eventually bid farewell to his family and traveled north to a Norwegian port where he caught a large trade ship bound for Barbados. The journey was both long and difficult and more than once the ship was almost lost a sea, but the Gods sailed with Sully and he arrived more or less safely in Bridgetown. After a few days spent among the locals Sully was able to bargain his way onto another trade ship headed for Freetown and eventually make his way out into the wilderness of the northern United States before catching wind of the canines settled in the packlands.
