Pascal Sadira is a Margrave of Cour des Miracles, serving as the pack's Chandler and Librarian. He is the son of Silvano Sadira, the King, and Giselle Fantasia -- who left the pack after Silvano's infidelity came to light.

A dreamer who struggles with autism, Pascal has always seen the world in a different way than his packmates. Sheltered as a youth, his nose in storybooks, he suffered several upheavals when he grew older, including an attempt made by a rogue on his father's life and his mother's aforementioned departure. Despite the pain caused by the family's changes, Pascal actively tried to forgive his father and became fast friends with his half-sister, Abigail Sadira. Protected by others in the pack, he became free to pursue his passions.

However, the Inferni and Cour des Miracles War set him back. Kidnapped and tortured (by starvation and drugging) by Campion de le Poer, Pascal was only narrowly rescued. His recovery is slow-going.

  • Any contact with his NPCs that isn't covered by their OOC assumptions.

1.  Appearance

1.1  Basics

Essentials

  • Species: Overlooking his coloration, Pascal most resembles an arctic wolf. The hints of other subspecies -- and of a distant coyote ancestor -- are invisible when compared with the predominant arctic and grey wolves.
  • Fur: Pascal has thick fur as per his arctic wolf blood.
    • Optime Hair: His hair is a short, curly mop and generally in disarray.
  • Facial Features: He is broad-muzzled, with small ears -- wolf through and through. Of note is his lack of expression, which often makes him seem emotionless unless he makes an effort to smile.
  • Build and Size: Pascal is average-sized with a powerful and stocky build. He is broad-shouldered with somewhat proportionally short legs; nothing about him is long. His muscle is that of a laborer, consistent but not remarkable.
  • Humanization: Yes, a little -- Pascal does not wear clothes, but he carries himself in a human fashion.

Adornments

Other

  • Teeth marks at the nape of his neck, hidden by his scruff.

Forms

Lupus

100 lbs (45 kg) — 31 in (79 cm)

Pascal is average, if stocky. He has an arctic wolf's build with large paws. He is comfortable in this form and uses it often, especially when hunting or sleeping.

Secui

200 lbs (91 kg) — 39 in (99 cm)

His Secui form doubles in weight, lumbering and ungraceful with thick hair. He almost never uses this form.

Optime

220 lbs (100 kg) — 6ft 4in (76 in) (193 cm)

Pascal is of average height and unremarkable. He is thick-limbed with a musculed but not trim torso. He is often found in this form when he needs to do tasks like building or reading.

Interaction

  • Speech: Pascal's voice is quiet and average-low. The emotion in his voice is either absent or abnormal, and his speech is slow and careful.
  • Scent: Cour des Miracles, forest, books, paper, wax, prey, mud.
  • Quirks, Gestures, Etc.: He constantly moves in little ways -- wagging his tail, rocking, touching his face, clawing at his hair. He often appears "blank," rarely showing facial expression other than large and odd smiles on occasion.
  • General Posture and Body Language: Pascal generally carries himself with submissive, but not groveling, posture. His body language is subtle but the main indicator of his emotion and interest. When uncertain, he generally seems stiff.

2.  Personality

Pascal is a dreamer, and fits the stereotype -- kind, gentle, quiet, sometimes absentminded. An avid reader, he loves to dive into fantasy worlds and discuss books with others. He also likes to create things, whether it's crafting something from his hands or just helping someone else put something larger together.

He finds the world around him a confusing and sometimes frightening place. Due to autism, he perceives the world in a different way than most others. While he's grown out of some of the worst of his anxieties, certain stimuli will drive him away, and he has difficulty connecting to others. This can make him seem like a loner -- but he is devoted and loving to his friends.

Though he takes after his mother's gentle heart and has some anxieties about the unknown and change, Pascal is not weak or timid. He has a strong moral basis and believes in upholding certain traditions. He isn't afraid of calling someone else out for inappropriate behavior, either. While others sometimes confound him in their motivations, Pascal knows himself and won't budge from what he believes in.

2.1  Ideals

Traits

Shy, imaginative, honest, trusting, kindhearted, quiet

  • Outlook: Optimistic
  • Sociability: Introverted
  • Expression: Submissive
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral

Interests

  • Likes: Books, candles, crafting, hunting, fantasy stories, culture, family, music, Akantha
  • Dislikes: Loud noises, violence, physical contact, enclosed and dark spaces, judgment, smoke, gods and demons

Motivations

  • Cour des Miracles: being a contributing member, proving himself, helping its culture flourish
  • His library, books, knowledge
  • Family: pleasing them

Fears

  • Violence: Pascal shies away from any sort of violence or conflict. Beyond the obvious fear of being attacked, he is afraid of his own anger sometimes, as he doesn't know how deal with or convey it. Even aggressive verbal encounters intimidate him.
  • Starvation -- prone to food-guarding
  • Dark, enclosed spaces; restraints; smoke; hallucinations; green-eyed wolves

Sexuality

  • Heterosexual
  • Pascal will experience complications in discovering his sexuality due to his autism, from the ignorance of social nuances to his dislike for being touched by strangers.
  • That said, he is prone to staring mouth-agape at sexy ladies, oho.
  • He also shows a tendency to "latch on" to romantic interests, as evidenced by his quiet obsession of Akantha.

Substances

  • Not inclined to try intoxicants like drink.
  • Pascal has had terrible experiences with drugs in the form of smoke, and so he is terrified of them. He panics around smoke.

Spirituality

  • Agnostic
  • Pascal is familiar with his friend's god and does not deny it exists, but he will butt heads with Skoll over dogma. He knows others draw motivation from faith and respects that. Ultimately, he doesn't care if there is a god -- whatever god exists made him and probably doesn't like him anyway, since he's so "odd."

3.  Relationships

3.1  Family

  • Extended: Pascal has extensive relations through his father's Sadira and Marino families and the more distant Tears line. He is not aware of his distant relations, and most of his closer ones are not around.

3.2  Relations

Key Relations

  • Silvano Sadira is Pascal's father. He was once a hero in Pascal's eyes until his infidelity came to light, but Pas actively tries to forgive him. They are working toward a better relationship.
  • Skoll Haskel is one of Pascal's friends, though he's more a bodyguard and teacher than true companion. They bond over stories, but Skoll is too bold for Pascal. Skoll nonetheless tries to help him cope with his oddity.
  • Giselle Fantasia is Pascal's mother. He was very close to her and misses her terribly -- but, at the same time, her departure has allowed him growth.

Positive Relations

  • Abigail Sadira is Pascal's half-sister. He absolutely adores her and the thought of having a little sister to protect.
  • Linden Aatte is a Court member and aspiring knight who has come to Pascal's aid before. Pascal believes him a true knight and more disciplined than Skoll.
  • Eugene Sadira is Pascal's brother. They love each other but are not very close due to their differences.
  • Avaiki Asylum is a coydog girl who Pascal thinks is pretty~

Neutral / Negative

  • anyone who yells :c

Minor Relations

  • Unfriendly: --
  • Murders: all the deers

4.  Assets

4.1  Abilities

Crafting

  • Education and Learning: Pascal is largely self-taught when it comes to making things, usually through experimentation, but he has been given lessons by various individuals (Myrddin, various loners, his father) and followed instructions in books.
  • Candlemaking (Apprentice): Though only beginning to craft these, Pascal is quickly learning. He can create candles from beeswax and preexisting candle fragments and is learning how to create them from tallow.
  • Carpentry (Dabbler): Pascal has mended structures such as bookshelves but has yet to make anything new.
  • Manual Labor (Journeyman): Pascal is strong enough to help with labor around the pack, and once he gets involved with a task, he tends to focus entirely on it and follow through in spite of anything else. He is good at carrying heavy objects, putting up supports, and other simplistic labors when guided.
  • Pascal's candles are still prone to falling apart, and are big and awkwardly-shaped. The wicks might not always be easy to light depending on the materials he can find.
  • The issue with manual labor is Pascal's very low pain tolerance -- something that hurts him will put him out of commission whereas others might shake it off. He is determined and focused, but certain tasks might be too much for him.

Miscellaneous

  • Education and Learning: From an early age, Pascal was read stories and quickly fell in love with them. He constantly reads whatever he can get his hands on. Meanwhile, his hunting skill is also largely self-taught through instinct and practice.
  • Reading (Master): Pascal is basically a reading prodigy. His constant practice allows him to read and absorb information rather quickly, and at a level higher than many Luperci.
  • Writing (Apprentice): He is attempting to learn how to write. He can copy down text fairly well, but his large hands make his handwriting rather sloppy unless it is large. His spelling and grammar is usually a guess, written phonetically (how it would be spoken rather than read).
  • Hunting (Journeyman): Pascal excels at the simple, instinctual task of hunting in his feral form. He prefers hunting large prey in a group.
  • Obviously, Pascal cannot pick up a medical textbook or something similar and understand it. His level of comprehension is very high, and some abstract concepts can be absorbed -- but the most he might understand is, for example, a medical book for little kids -- and even then he would reject very unusual theories (like "cells") in favor of simpler explanations.

4.2  Inventory

Residence

Chien Hotel, Cour des Miracles

Pascal lives on the first floor's west ring -- room number seven. His room is south of Skoll's.

An old mattress without a frame is flopped unceremoniously along the northern wall. A short dresser with a stool sits along the southern wall; the dresser is marked with melted stubs of candles, other than an immaculate corner where a book generally lays. The dresser drawers contain various tools, from candle molds to wicks and cans of various substances.

Trade

Pascal often seeks out trade, but while he has an idea of what he wants, it is easy to trick him.

5.  History

In August 2012, Pascal and his brother Eugene are born to Silvano Sadira and Giselle Fantasia in Cour des Miracles. He was "off" from birth, timid of new things and flinching from sound and touch at a young age. Regardless, his parents loved him -- especially Giselle, who sheltered him when he was small.

Late in the year, the leadership of Cour des Miracles changed -- with Charlotte Haskel becoming Queen, and his father usurping first the subleader then rising as King. These and other changes went ignored by Pascal, too young and too interested in chasing frogs and butterflies.
