1.  Lifestyle

1.1  Speech

Describe accent, general pattern of speech, whether confident speaker or not. Note mannerisms regarding speech -- e.g., "um" or "er?" a lot.

Do they speak loudly and clearly, or do they mumble words? Are they prone to speaking very fast, stumbling over words and occasionally mixing them up, or do they speak slowly and deliberately, rarely fumbling their words or losing their train of thought?

It's very helpful to actually reflect this in your post, and having a more concrete idea of how your character speaks and sounds can help you write dialogue, which is arguably one of the hardest aspects of writing to do well. Some players even choose particular actors or actresses to represent their character's voice -- consider linking to a Youtube clip of this person speaking!

2.1  Forms

Lupus

Miranda weighs about seventy six pounds or thirty four kilograms, and is twenty six inches tall. She is very thin in this form, and her muscles are long and lean. Everything about her suggests speed and endurance. The female's coat is about an inch and a half long in summer, but lengthens to around three and a half inches long. Her fur has the classic Doberman pinscher markings, the base being Masala, and the markings are Kumera. Miranda's eyes are Forest Green. She also has sparks of Oregon threw out her coat

Secui

While the female is rather large and bulky in her Secui form, her body still leaves the impression of leanness. Her fur is four and a half inches long during the summer in this form, and it is five and a half inches long in winter. She weighs approximately one hundred and fifty six pounds or seventy one kilograms in this form. The she wolf is thirty three inches tall, and is very muscular, but not muscle bound.

Optime

Miranda weighs one hundred and eighty six pounds in her Optime form. She is about six feet tall at the shoulder in this form, and stands erect, like a human being. She wears her mane long, and almost always has it pulled back into a ponytail. She usually wears a cowboy style hat, shorts that reach her knees, and a leather belt with several leather pouches hanging off of it.

3.  Personality

Miranda is naturally very calm, and rarely gets angry, though she can get annoyed by people she sees as acting foolishly. The female has learned to be cautious at all times, and can be somewhat jumpy, similar to the horses she adores. Over time, she has learned to be gentle with those weaker than her, and knows her own strength very well. Interacting with foals has helped her nurture this trait. The she wolf is intelligent without being cunning, and is very careful to do everything she can to refrain from insulting others.

Miranda is very chivalrous, and tries to help those weaker than her as much as she can. She does not like to fight, but will do so in the defense of others. The female is extremely unlikely to attack first, and will often try to talk her way out of situations. Once the she wolf has set her mind on something, she will do her very best to accomplish it. Miranda can be very stubborn, and requires a lot of persuasion to sway from her chosen path. She is very respectful toward her elders, and is very eager to learn from them. The female has excellent maternal instincts, and is very eager to have pups of her own. The she wolf is hard working, and will not rest until she has finished her job.

3.1  Demeanor

Discuss how your character treats others here, and their general "presentation." Although less a defined appearance quality, think about the way your character presents him or herself -- are they open, outgoing, and social, or introverted, quiet, and aloof? Considering and jotting this down as part of their appearance can help you as you're roleplaying -- keeping this small but vital detail in mind can give you major clues as to how your character would act and present themselves in situations in terms of body language.

How do they react to certain situations -- newcomer at the borders, a stranger with bad attitude in the neutral territories, a lost puppy? Do they have a strong sense of right and wrong, or does their morality shift to accomodate the situation and their best interest? What motivates them, and what frightens them? What do they enjoy and what do they dislike? Although this is a lot to think about, considering these aspects can help you fully flesh out your character. It's helpful to make sure that aspects of their personality mesh well with their biography -- thus, try to think of a plausible reason why a character acts a certain way.

3.2  Outlook

Optimist/pessimist? Submissive/dominant? Introvert/extrovert? A character who is more introverted might cross his or her arms while talking or avoid eye contact more often. This can also assist others in “reading between the lines” of your posts. While you may not take the time to detail how your character presents him or herself every time they make a move, having a general idea stated in your profile can help players fill in the blanks if they don't know your character so well.

Immediate Family

5.  History

Miranda was born in what was once Washington, USA to Michael Amaruq and Ashley Berlow. Her father was a Great Plains Wolf, who her mother had met and seduced as she was trading with his pack. The female has never met her father, and it is likely that he doesn't even know she exists, because her mother had already moved on by the the time she was born. Her mother, Ashley, is a bit of a vagabond, and doesn't stay in the same area for more than a season before moving on. Miranda has four younger siblings from other litters, and none of them have the same fathers, though her mother gave her pups their fathers last name. She has always found her family's lifestyle trying, and wishes to live in the same place for a long time.

The female's family has quite a few horses, and she grew up fascinated with them. She has been taught all she knows about them from various Luperci across North America. In Illinois she learned quite a lot about being a Farrier. She learned how to best train horses from a ancient she wolf in Minnesota. Miranda worked for a pack to help them build their stables in Arizona, and learned quite a bit about construction. One of the few useful things her mother taught her was about breeding horses.

Miranda separated from her family about a month ago while they were in New York. She took her own personal horses, two mares, and all of her belongings and set out to find a place she could call home. The female has only recently arrived in 'Souls.
