Originating from the faraway British Isles and born into a life of privilege as an aristocrat's son, Everett was expected to become physically strong, emotionally manipulative and mentally cunning. To his parent's dismay he entered the world as a runt and was largely ignored by his father for his frail body and gentle disposition. In contrast, his mother doted upon him and honed his talents of empathy and creativity. With a growing sense of dismay for his physical weakness and the isolation he felt from his packmates, he begins to form a plan for his future.

Upon coming of age, Everett fled from his homeland with his friend, Olivia Moreau, to carve out a new life for themselves.


The two arrived in bustling Portland, and joined a group of traders and travellers. The journey was seldom smooth, and the group experienced many highs and lows along the way. Everett provided the myriad roles as the band's medic, confidante, cook or counsellor at different occasions. Disagreements and scuffles with other traders/loners became increasingly common - one such occasion led to Olivia being threatened.

In the heat of the moment, Everett killed the attacker, which caused the dead trader's group to flee as they left words of retribution behind. Both suffer in the aftermath of this event and find themselves unable to continue on with the group. Without the aid of a pack and with winter drawing near, Everett and Olivia take shelter in the Southern region of 'Souls.

Everett falls ill to the sickness that swept the lands in April 2017. Olivia aids his recovery throughout this ordeal, but when he awakens he discovers she has gone missing. In the wake of his grief he adopts her family name as his own.

1.  Appearance

1.1  Essentials

Basics

Everett is petite, with a leanness to his body that speaks of his birth as a runt. The male is dainty and androgynous in all of his forms with a slender figure that lacks mass in the sense of muscle or fat. An underweight frame is covered by thick, double-coated fur that grows into 'feathers' about his stomach, legs and neck. A curled, Spitz-like tail rests against his flanks. Hidden amongst the layers of his coat a long scar graces his shoulder; it was inflicted by a glancing blow from a sword. In Optime, his hair is kept short and styled into soft spikes like this and this using natural waxes. Everett is highly humanised, fashioning himself after a gentleman, often found in formal wear, and keeping and collecting jewellery.

2.  Personality

  • Independent, meticulous and ambitious

Everett has an independent nature at heart, a trait cultivated in his youth and hardened over the years. He chooses to try things for himself first and foremost but is not above seeking out the help or advice of others. The gentleman enjoys meeting others and learning new customs and ideologies, and is comfortable sharing at length what he has learned. He takes pleasure in amassing and distilling information he has gathered and seeks to further his understanding through discussion with others. The strain of his elitist roots resonates within Everett still, as can be evidenced by the level of care he pays to himself, his belongings and his plans - each detail has been chosen with the utmost care. The very thought of diverging from the course he has set himself is jarring, and acts of spontaneity are alien and foolish to him. The fires of ambition burn brightly within the man, as he dislikes compromising his ideals or settling with conformity. He sets his sights considerably high for himself, as he believes that through focused effort and hard work he can achieve what he sets out to do. Everett believes that others should strive for similar goals, but will not chastise or impose upon others.

  • Courteous, composed and sensitive

Someone once said, everyone merely uses a facade, to protect the secrets and failings that lurk beneath. Once you peel away this polished veneer, their truths become apparent. Everett was no different and followed these words when first heard. On the outside he maintains the appearance of strength and confidence in his world, whilst harbouring crippling insecurities and lingering doubts. He has guarded his heart and mind of the misfortune which have threatened him since birth. This ingrained level of control has granted him stability in his own mind, whilst accentuating Everett's need for control. In the absence of a confidante, he internalised his feelings and created a destructive inner cycle. These hidden emotions are his alone, Everett believes, and he is torn between being unwilling to burden others and not not knowing how to seek help. From the initial lessons his mother taught him on etiquette and social graces, he has ingrained this code of behaviour to please his family and set himself apart.

  • Creative, insecure and empathic

Everett takes solace from acts that call for his imagination and senses together, whether it be through painting, calligraphy or polishing precious stones. What may at first seem like a flirtatious comment or wandering eye is merely a sign of his appreciation for something or someone. He sees nothing wrong with complimenting a person for their looks or personality and will openly speak his mind should the whim take him. Everett is known to become lost in his creations, as he uses art as an outlet for his emotions, both good and ill. Whilst the gentleman has worked to shore up his defences, a dark undercurrent finds its way through the cracks. His insecurities vary in their range and degree, but he is aware of the doubt he harbours toward his body - he is ashamed of his fragility. Whilst outwardly stoic, he is deeply swayed by the ebb and flow of his packmate's emotions and worries after them a great deal. Everett often finds himself in the role of a shoulder to cry on and an emotional anchor, whilst simultaneously revealing very little of himself in the process.

  • Tropes:

Motivations

  • Knowledge - Life is regarded as an opportunity to grow and learn for the male.
  • Belonging - Everett longs to find acceptance, from forming healthy connections with like-minded individuals to falling in love and raising a family.
  • Self-growth - He strives to become better, to overcome his faults and prove his usefulness.

Fears

  • Loss of control - He is a creature that thrives upon routine and discipline, which often leads him to become fearful of unfamiliar experiences. Has a tendency to feel restless and worthless when forced out of his comfort zone.
  • Weakness - Everett has always been aware of his fragility - as a result he is cautious of blood, illness and infection as he knows they can weaken him further.
  • Loneliness - The man craves affection and closeness towards his kin, but fears rejection or becoming a burden.

Interests

  • Likes: Culture, tea, art, books, being creative, order, hard work, children
  • Dislikes: Blood, violence, gossip, slavery, cruelty, over-stimulation, laziness, violence

Biases

  • Packs: If your character has a bias against a pack?
  • Species: More familiar with dogs and mutts.
  • Non-Luperci: Everett has lived among luperci, and has yet to meet a non-luperci in his travels. He would be likely to take a stand against those who oppose them and seek to change one against his or her will.
  • Gender: Wary around dominant or overbearing individuals of either sex.
  • Color: He finds many coat colours, patterns, markings and eye colours pleasing.
  • Sexuality: Finds polygamy disgusting, but would likely keep his thoughts on the subject to himself around others who practised it.
  • Age: Adores children and feels instinctively protective towards them. Reveres elders, but is wary of those who hold too much sway over others.

Sexuality

Everett is asexual, and likely demisexual. He is unsure of his own identity, but was raised with the belief that heterosexual relationships were the norm. He found the practise of males taking on multiple females as mates detestable. Everett quickly found he lacked interest in pursuing romance, and considers himself repulsive for falling short of his culture's ideals. He enjoys showing and receiving affection from close friends or family, but would become confused and avoidant once his relationships became physical. This self-doubt has caused him a great deal of distress as he desires children of his own, but fears that he may be sterile.

Spirituality

Describe your character's spirituality. What do they believe? Do they believe in (a) higher power(s)? Do they perform rituals? What do they believe after death? Do they have a creation myth? Maybe this section is long enough to require more space.

Substances

Everett is at a loss as to why anyone would want to waste perfectly good alcohol on anything less than medicinal properties. He has a low tolerance for substances, and is unlikely to experiment.

2.2  Skills

Strengths

  • Reading (Master): Everett's family viewed literacy highly, and so it has flowed to him. Much time spent bed-bound during periods of sickness in puppy hood saw him devour a wide variety of tomes on various subjects. This instilled a lifelong interest in reading and words, and he is fond of trying out new words and phrases he has learnt.
  • Writing (Master): Another area deemed necessary within the Ames' household was the ability to communicate through the written word. His handwriting could be described as precise.
  • Languages (Journeyman): Through trading he was exposed to various European languages, primarily Spanish, Italian and German.
  • Fishing (Apprentice): His main source of prey, he uses a combination of nets, traps and line fishing. He was taught how to keep and prepare his catches through the use of salt, and is observant of the habits of a number of species of fish which helps him to guess where they might best be found.
  • Cooking (Journeyman): He enjoys experimenting with the tastes and textures of food through herbs and preparation methods. Knows how to gather, harvest and prepare herbs as well as how to store, prepare and season meat for cooking.
  • Painting (Apprentice): Everett enjoys the feel of different textures and materials, and has used stone, wood and paper as his canvas. His style is typically emotive, through it's use of strokes or colours although he has been tutored in other styles.
  • Crafting (Apprentice): he male is knowledgeable in different crafts, he often crafts jewellery from found objects including stones, foliage and bones. He also knows how to use natural products to produce dye, soaps and essential oils.
  • Herbalism (Apprentice): Learned this skill through one part practicality and a dash of obsession over his health. Whilst he knows how to identify cuts, wounds and sprains he is particularly good at creating herbal remedies that stave off common illnesses and infections, aid in sleep and in the treatment/cleaning of wounds.

Weaknesses

  • Fragile: Physically fragile and lacking in endurance, he runs out of energy quickly and requires frequent breaks and rest. Everett is vulnerable should he be involved in combat, and whilst he has agility on his side he could be quickly worn down and easily injured. Prone to illness and infection.
  • Lack of local information: Whilst knowledgeable about the plants and herbs of his homeland, the new world provides a challenge to his skills.
  • Perfectionist: The elitist attitudes of Coeur de Lion have carved it's place into Everett's mind, and his failure to live up to it's ideal still torments him. His wounds are were further made raw by his continued attempts to please his aloof father. As a result, Everett strives to maintain calm upon the surface whilst controlling other aspects of his life through obsession.
  • Self-depreciative: Everett is modest about himself and his abilities at best, and self-destructive at his worst. He often challenges his body and mind's limits in an attempt to discern how much stronger or weaker he has become. This tendency is expressed when he is alone, so as not to worry his companions. His humour is dry and often directed at his own faults, whilst open flirtation is often met with shyness or puzzlement. The male considers himself physically disfigured and a mess of emotions; whoever could want such qualities in a mate or father?

3.  Connections

3.1  Family

  • Mother: Madeline Dubois
  • Father: Desmond Ames
  • Littermates: Arthur and Elise
  • Half-siblings: Everett has many potential half-siblings through his father's polygamous practises, including this dork on his mother's side.

3.2  Relationships

Key Relationships

  • Olivia Moreau Part friend, part care-taker and part-tutor, the woman represents several key foundations he has built his life upon. Olivia was the Ames' family slave, although she was released from her bonds and fled with Everett. Her disappearance during the spring sickness of 2017 left the heart-broken male to seek her out, to no avail.

Positive Relationships

  • Arlen Stryder is a youth he met whilst travelling and formed a fast friendship with. Arlen reminds him of his younger self, and whilst Everett may project some of that onto him without realising it, he still seeks to aid and nurture him.
  • Characters is also worth knowing and here's why you should know lalala

Poor Relationships

  • Zacchaeus Kasper threatened and wounded him when he accidentally wandered into their territory. Everett feels he owes the youth's uncle, Silas Kaspar a measure of respect for allowing them to go free.
