Skana Creo is the daughter of Vidar Creo and Naama Laveau, and younger sister to her brother, Vepar Creo. Her creation was nonconsensual, her mother forced to bear Vidar a second litter. She was born in the Appalachian Mountains of Pennsylvania after her brother managed to secure his and a pregnant Naama's escape from a vengeful Vidar. She was raised by her brother, and followed Vepar to Nova Scotia with the intention to find their lost mother.

She is a former member of Anathema, where she specialized and expanded her knowledge in the medicinal field. She left as a Volac (a Lieutenant in the healer tier), and specialized in the Psychiatra co-rank. During her time with Anathema, Skana took up a slave named Malus Reinhart in order to save him from death. While loyal to her packmates, the pack’s horrific attack—which she was a reluctant pawn of—on the feral New Dawn was the final straw, and Skana couldn’t bring herself to get over the guilt she felt for destroying the innocent pack. She and Vepar left Anathema mid-fall in 2015 with their friend, Sully, and former slave, Malus.

In a whirlwind of unexpected romance, Skana went from quick friends to an eventual lover of Sully, and bore him two children, Asura Creo and Saleos Creo.

She stayed with Midnight Shores for a little over a year, slowly working her way up to Antares, an advising position. When the pack’s leaders suddenly disappeared during the winter of 2016, Skana was forced to make the difficult decision to disband the pack. She and her family decided to leave the island in search of a new home.

Skana is currently a Loner.

1.  Appearance

1.1  Basics

Essentials

  • Species: Typical wolf build, stance, head and ears, and neck fur. She, at all angles, looks like a pure-blooded wolf. Her brow spots, softer fur, and white claws are the only indicators that she’s not pure.
  • Fur: Medium in length with a thick, double-coat. Her fur is very soft around her ears and around her neck; her scruff is thicker and longer than the rest of her coat.
    • Optime Hair: Medium-long in length, the ends of her hair tickling her mid-shoulder blade. It is straight, and soft like her neck fur. Bangs tapper down the right side of her face with a few rebellious strands doing as they please. She may put her hair up in a ponytail if working on medicinal things.
  • Facial Features: Unmistakably wolf, with a thick, long muzzle; broad head; short ears.
  • Build and Size: She stands in on the larger side, and houses a thick but feminine physique. It is obvious that she’s not a dainty, frail female, but one that works hard. She is lean, with light toning.
    • Lupus: It’s obvious that Skana is of one of the larger breeds of wolf, even if she’s not as robust or as tall as a pure-blood. She has longer legs and larger chest cavity of a larger, mountain-dwelling subspecies of wolf.
    • Secui: Decidedly massive in her secui form, but, in hindsight, not all that different from her lupus shift. She simply has a bulkier, more muscular—though still streamlined—look to her.
    • Optime: She—surprisingly—does not appear quite as heavy as she does in her four-legged forms. She is trimmed out evenly, and, like her other forms, she does show the structure of someone who actively works. Skana walks on the balls, or fully on the pads of her feet, rather than up onto her toes.
  • Humanization: Skana is rather feral in comparison to her peers. She doesn’t normally wear clothing, and doesn’t particularly like the idea of it either. She does have a poncho that she wears when the weather gets bad though. Just as well, she has taken to toting around a satchel, which she uses to carry whatever various items she may scavenging, typically, for medical-related purposes. The cloth bandages on her hands are the only things she wears religiously.

Coloration

  • Fur:
    • Primarily Bombay (#B2B6B9)
  • Markings:
    • Geyser(#DEE3E6) brow spots
    • Outer Space (#33383C) ears
    • Sepia Skin (#985B3F) runs along the top her snout, ending mid-way so that it doesn’t reach the bridge of her nose.
    • Geyser(#DEE3E6) undertones, starting at the tip of her nose and running down the front of her neck, where it is briefly choked by a sliver of Bombay before continuing its run down her chest, legs, stomach, and the bottom of her tail.
    • The elongated “Y”’s point of intersection starts at the base of her beck and works its way down to the middle of her tail. Sepia Skin (#985B3F) bleeds into Bombay, ticking into the silvery color and into its neighbor, Outer Space (#33383C). The darker Outer Space is blocked from touching the Bombay color by Sepia Skin. This coexistence lives at the tip of Skana’s tail as well.
  • Eyes: Blizzard Blue (#9ADEF1)
  • Optime Hair: Dominantly Bombay (#B2B6B9), fading into Rolling Stone (#777C7F) the further down the strand it goes. A few Sepia Skin (#985B3F) and Outer Space (#33383C) strands have weaved their way in.
  • Nose, Paw Pads, Scars: Shark (#333436)
  • Claws: Dawn Pink (#F6EEEA)

2.  Personality


DeterminatorUndying LoyaltyOne of the BoysStepford SmilerGood is Not Soft

GOOD: Friendly, Neutral standpoint, Caring, Playful, Sunny-Side-Up, Tomboy, Hardworking, Loyal, Adventurous, Curious
Skana is generally friendly to all she meets, so long as they are not perceived as a threat. After such confirmation, she is more than willing to lend a hand or ear to someone in need of it. Her neutral outlook on things has made her ideal for company, as she is not clouded by common opinions or ideas. She is very caring and generally helpful, and is normally always willing to lend a hand or comfort someone when necessary. She’s a giant puppy at heart, and loves to play and engage in banter that will make her laugh. Overall, Skana sports an optimistic personality, and will try to maintain this outlook despite what she may personally feel, so as to not worry those around her. Having grown up with a brother, Skana is not afraid of getting her paws dirty. She’s more likely to hang with the boys than she is with girls, finding familiarity with the rough and tumble lifestyle of a male. She’s very keen on finishing what she starts, and one to give 110% in everything she does. Skana is fiercely loyal to those that manage to work themselves into her network of allies. Skana still possess the child-like curiosity and thirst for adventure that she did when she was young.

FAULTS: Bleeding Heart, Untrusting of unknown males*, Stubborn, Secretive
Because of her caring nature, Skana finds it hard to turn down someone in need, and typically finds herself going to extraordinary lengths to help someone she cares for, and, sometimes, even strangers. *Due of a previous misjudgment, Skana is very untrusting of male strangers that are highly sophisticated or show dishonest tendencies. Her prideful and stubborn attitude doesn’t help this matter either. It may take a bit of pulling and gentle persuasion to make her change her opinions. Something not well appreciated by her companions might possibly be her secretiveness. She is the type to hide if something is bothering her, and would rather wallow in her problems alone than ask for help. Skana may act optimistically in spite of her inner turmoil, which often makes it hard for others to read if something is wrong with her.

  • Age: Elders are to be respected. Children make her smile.

Sexuality

Skana is heterosexual, being attracted more to males than to another female. Having grown up with only her brother for most of her life, Skana often has a bit of a high-standard when it comes to what she expects of others, and may also be considered demisexual. Skana is one to develop a relationship over time than simply pursuing one’s bodily pleasures. She is not one to have sex with another on a whim, especially with the horror stories her brother told her growing up. Due to her parents’ relationship, Skana is a one-partner gal, and sneers at the thought of taking on multiple romantic suitors.

Spirituality

Despite her mother being religious, Skana is not particularly so. She half-heartedly believes that there is a higher power out there, but she often finds herself conflicted even with this idea, especially when she and her brother have been dealt such a poor hand at life thus far. Most of the things in life, she finds, are a result of someone’s own determination or hard work, not the doing of a supreme power. If there is a god out there though, it sure as hell isn’t on her or her brother’s side.

  • Mother: Naama Laveau
  • Father: Vidar Creo
  • Siblings: Vepar Creo, Valac Creo, Calypso Creo
  • Extended: Laveau, Creo, Torrentem, Whiplash

3.2  Relations

Key Relations

  • Vepar Creo is Skana's older brother and something akin to a god in her eyes. Vepar has practically raised Skana since she was a pup, and, thus, Skana has grown to be very attached to him. He taught her just about everything she knows, a fact that she will not soon forget. She is protective of Vepar, and is not above correcting someone if they speak ill of the darkly furred canine. To Skana, Vepar is without fault, and she will follow him to hell and back if she must
  • Sully was her brother’s friend that quickly became Skana’s before eventually becoming someone she found herself expectantly enamored with. She likes that he can stand toe-to-toe with her usually stoic brother, and finds great humor in their interactions. His unique experiences and humor satisfy her adventurous curiosity and love of laughter. Overall, his personality, antics, and presence are very soothing for Skana. She immensely enjoys teasing him
  • Asura Creo and Saleos Creo are her children; her sunshine and her little shadow. Skana is highly protective of them, and will go from sweet to mother bear on anyone who threatens their existence. She loves them to death, and enjoys interacting, playing, and teasing them. She will go above and beyond to ensure their safety, but also does well to not smother them either
  • Naama Laveau is Skana’s beloved mother, who continues her own life in a land far away from Nova Scotia, a fact unbeknownst to her lost children. Skana desperately misses her, and hopes to see her again one day. Naama taught young Skana how to read and write, and introduced her to the field of medicine and the healing arts
  • Vidar Creo is Skana’s wretched father. She’s never met him in person, but has quickly learned to share the same hatred for him that her brother had, the hatred having been spawned from her early months of constant running and hiding from the mere thought of him alone. The tales she overheard and managed to weasel out of her brother only solidified this extreme dislike. She hopes to meet him one day…if only so she can give him a piece of her mind

Positive Relations

  • Axelle Napier is something of a role model or superhero in Skana’s eyes. She deeply respects the two-toned woman for her leadership qualities and over all prowess as a fighter. Skana secretly “ships” her brother, Vepar, with Axelle, and makes it a point to leave subtle hints when the moment presents itself
  • Malus Reinhart was Skana's personal slave—albeit a reluctant one—and medical assistant of sorts while in Anathema. Skana believes herself responsible for Malus, and has become to be protective of him during the course of their companionship together. She finds his presence to comforting, though, sometimes infuriating, and often teases him when given the chance. She set him free when the Creos left Anathema, but he returned to her shortly afterward

Neutral / Negative

  • Kentaro Lykoi was Skana’s previous leader when she was a member of Anathema. She saw him as protective of his own, and did not see the cruelty in his heart like many other older members saw. Her trust in his judgement was shaken though with the attack and destruction of New Dawn, and thus leading to her eventual departure from the pack
  • Judas Poer de Aika XIII attacked and scarred Skana both physically and mentally when she was still a loner adventuring the Nova Scotia countryside in search for her brother. Judas broke her of her previously trusting and friendly nature, and was the cause of her further graduation into adulthood. He is also the root of her dislike for red eyes and shady or manipulative individuals

Minor Relations

4.  Skills and Inventory

4.1  Abilities

Fighting

  • Education and Learning: Originally taught out of necessity for survival, her older brother, Vepar Creo, was Skana’s mentor in teaching her how to fight. The basis for everything she knows stems from his teachings. Currently, she maintains her skills through sparing with Vepar, Sully, or Malus, or by practicing on her own.
  • Feral Fighter (Master): Gained from the siblings’ nomadic lifestyle, Skana grew up knowing very little of any other method of fighting. This has become her go-to style when in a pinch. Skana is quick, agile, and very confident with fighting with tooth, claw, and body. Most effective in her four-legged forms, Skana may resort to this dirty mode of fighting if she’s backed into a corner.
  • Tactician and Ambush (Journeyman): Vepar always taught her to think, to watch, and learn her target. Skana’s watchful gaze and quick-mind allows her to calculate plans of action, making her an effective fighter. She makes great use of her environment to her advantage, and is not above exploiting a known weakness. Dirty tricks are also a viable option when necessary.
  • Skana is quick and light on her feet, and has a great deal of endurance thanks to the siblings’ constant traveling and running in their early days. She can kick up a speed surprising for her size, allowing her to match pace with her target. However, her size makes it harder for her to turn on a dime like a smaller canine can; and slowing down once reaching max speed takes longer as well. You run into enough trees though, and you just learn to brush it off.
  • While Skana fights very well with her body, she’s not very good at it in her optime form. It’s more of a raw, unrefined fighting style, but, it has potential if honed. She is disastrous with weapons of any sort other than using them like a newbie to the trade. She may grasp the concept of weapons, but she’d much rather give someone a nice punch to the jaw than swinging a bladed weapon at them. It’s just not as satisfying.

Survival

  • Education and Learning: Yet another vital skill garnered from her brother, and some, from her mother. There were times that Skana would have to be left alone, and she would have to fend for herself until her mother or brother returned. Others, her brother taught her for simple survival, and, should they ever become separated, that she’d be able to function without him. Others were self-taught out of trial and error and observation; and done mostly out of a need to curve boredom.
  • Stealth (Master): Learned from Skana’s early days of having to hide herself while her guardians went in search of food, Skana has learned to hide herself (climbing trees, making use of her environment), her presence (footprints, careful treading, misleading signs), and her scent (rolling around in a dead carcass, scat) well in order to not be found by those not actively looking for her. Her patience aids in this, allowing her to lay in wait for the most opportune moment. She enjoys using this skill most on ambushing foolish prey and attempting to sneak up on her brother.
  • Hunting (Master): As two lone wolves, Skana had to pull her weight in the hunt during the siblings’ nomadic days. She’s capable of taking down a variety of prey, both large and small, thanks to her confidence in all three forms. However, her preference for hunting lies in her lupus form, leaving her to be the quickest and most sure-footed.
  • Tracking and Scouting (Journeyman): Taught by her brother, Skana learned from the best. She has a natural good sense of navigation, so she is rarely ever lost. She can traverse the land light or dark, comfortable in either atmosphere. She’s very observant and has a great nose, which has thus allowed her to generally follow anything she puts her mind to.
  • Trapping (Apprentice): A skill gained from her own boredom, Skana first learned of the method on the siblings’ travels when they came across a snare. She has since tried out different ways to catch otherwise difficult prey. She loves to see her traps work successfully, and feels pride in outsmarting her prey.
  • Though very good at hiding herself, nothing can beat someone’s sixth sense. Also, her larger size makes it difficult for her to hide herself quickly at a moment’s notice. Her large form also takes more time and consideration in how conceal her presence; you can’t just throw a bear behind a bush and expect it to be hidden. Her lighter fur may also be harder to hide in the darker hours if she does not cover it in something.
  • Her larger size makes it difficult for her to take the break-neck turns her prey may take, and makes it near impossible for her to follow if it goes into a place she is too massive to follow. Because of this, she uses small game more for the thrill than to actually hunt to kill. She much prefers larger prey, particularly elk or deer, finding enjoyment in the hunt of outsmarting these more majestic animals. As good of a hunter she may be, Skana has little to no knowledge in how to properly preserve food.
  • Skana is still learning on bettering her tracking knowledge. If the trail goes cold or takes a different mode of traveling, Skana can have a harder time following her quarry. Crafty wolves with knowledge of concealing their presence through an area are also difficult for her. However, because she is good at hiding herself, Skana can often use her own knowledge to get her back on track.
  • Because she is mostly self-taught, Skana could still learn a thing or two with using a greater variety of types of traps that would better suit the prey she’s pursuing. She has a limited knowledge of what kinds of things she can do to ensnare her target, and could benefit from having this book of tricks expanded.

Healing

  • Education and Learning: Originally just a curiosity, Skana has taken to the healing arts thanks to her mother, Naama. After their departure from one another, Skana continued to expand her knowledge in order to help her brother in their journeys north to Nova Scotia. Ciellen Loreath and Bridget Rhiannon have helped broaden her simple understanding of the art of medicine. Skana has since read books, traded medicinal knowledge with others, and has experimented on lesser creatures to increase her knowledge of herbs and medicinal practices.
  • Balms and Ointments (Master): She can create salves that can help soothe skin conditions such as burns, rashes, blisters and sores, amongst other things.
  • Medic (Master): Skana has made a patch job or two, and can sew up an open wound if needed. She’s used thread and sharpened, tiny bones, needles, and metals in the past to help close up an open wound, and knows that alcohol can help sterilize a wound. She also knows how to dress a wound as well, as well as knowledge of changing bandages and keeping the wound clean and dry will help prevent infection.
  • Remedies (Journeyman): Skana can prepare remedies and potions to help ease temporary aches, such as that of the stomach, head, digestion, and general body pain. Knowledge of cures for poisons is something she actively seeks out.
  • Poison (Journeyman): A new and recent fascination brought about by Bridget. Skana has used various animals (mostly rats) to test out the toxicity of herbs and mixtures. Her interest is less sinister than most, as she simply wants to learn the effects and symptoms of the poisoning so that she can better react and treat her comrades.
  • Psychiatric (Apprentice): Not as skilled as her more hands-on work, Skana has made surprising progress in this field. Coined during her time in Anathema, she has become skilled in talking individuals through their problems and offering advice for how they can fix it. She is not an expert by any means, but her willingness to listen and her patience has allowed her to be a good candidate for one to vent and seek advice from.
  • Skana is knowledgeable in her field of study, but can always learn from others. Practice makes perfect, and to avoid making a crucial mistake on another Luperci, Skana has found using animals (rodents in particular) for experimental remedies, balms, and poisons. Because of the nature of this work, many may find her actions heartless and cruel in comparison to her normally compassionate and generally kind demeanor.
  • Bone setting is not Skana’s strong suit, as she has little to no actual experience with using this skill.

Education

  • Education and Learning: Naama taught Skana how to read at a very young age. She has maintained this skill throughout her journeys, and it has actually saved her life in a number of instances.
  • Reading (Journeyman): She has about an average reading-level, above-average when compared to many of her canine counterparts though. She can easily read and understand most common words and letters, though, more complex languages and vocabulary can cause her trouble.
  • Writing (Dabbler): Skana’s writing level is a bit sub-par, however. She can create the letters just fine, and anything she can sound out, she can spell, but, she could not write out a book-worthy paragraph or story on her own though. She has no problem reading story books and whatnot, she simply just doesn’t have the talent for proper grammar and complex sentence writing on her own.

4.2  Inventory

Trade

Skana keeps most of her items stowed away in the Creo siblings’ home, but has been known to take a few with her on her travels via her satchel. Most of them are found items, others were garnered for trade of item or labor. She is partial to items that she can see being of practical use to either her, her brother, or her pack. Skana is a generally reasonable trader, but is not one to cross if given a faulty deal.

5.  Residence

Sherwood Neighborhood (Falconwood division), Charlottetown, Midnight Shores
Also occupied by: Asura Creo, Saleos Creo, Vepar Creo, Sully, sometimes Malus Reinhart, Skana’s NPCs may also be found here

An old, family home built of brick and accented with hand-crafted wood. The residence has been reclaimed by nature, and, living on the outskirts of the division, is somewhat isolated from the other houses. A multitude of different trees, brush, and other forest plants hide the home from plain sight. A small, running stream can be found within a few hundred yards of it.

The house itself is comprised of two stories, with a turret located on its front right corner and a small, roofed porch on its back. The floors throughout the house are mostly wood; areas of new wood can be seen where repairs were made. The windows are mostly intact, either having survived the age of time, or, having been replaced; others that were unsalvageable were turned into shutters to allow open access to the outdoors or for easy come-and-go access for the birds. Overall though, the house is in decent shape for its age, protected from storms and heavy winds by the surrounding forest.

The first floor showcases a living room with a fireplace, a formal dining room (connected to the turret), a dilapidated kitchen, a guest bedroom, and a gutted bathroom. The second floor is where most of the bedrooms may be found, there being three in total. The master bedroom is the largest, and is connected to the turret. There is also a large, open room—presumably once a play or game room—located at the top of the stairs, and from which splits off into the various individual rooms. Two bathrooms also occupied the second floor, but have been gutted, and have been turned into storage areas or areas of roost for the birds.

Within eyesight of the house is a roomy, dug out den beneath a large, sturdy pine tree. Skana dug this out when she became pregnant with her first litter, and occupied it during the children’s first few months of life. Once the children grew older though, the den was used as a “hideout” of sorts for their childhood fantasies and fun.

The birds, Thanos, Peck, Thistle, Thorn, and Bird, roost in the various trees outside of the home or in the house, and often enter through one of the open windows/shutters. On occasion, one might noticed a few skewered animals within range of the house, a macabre habit done by the two shrikes, Thistle and Thorn.

6.  History

Before ‘Souls

The result of an abusive relationship, Skana’s start to life was not one without strife. Her father was a notoriously abusive rogue male by the name of Vidar Creo. Ever the deceiver, he would be the seemingly harmless, conveniently “in the area,” gentlemanly loner. In actuality, if he saw something that he wanted, he took it in whatever manner possible. Females were something that never failed to catch this monster’s ever insatiable, lustful gaze, and Skana’s mother, a beautiful and kind young wolfdog named Naama Laveau, was only one of many that had the misfortune to catch Vidar’s eye.

Vidar had lured Naama and her elderly parents into his poisonous game, and, by night, had killed off her parents and forced her into remaining in his…care. Any attempts of escape were futile against her enslaver. Not only was he strong, but he was persistent, and a talented tracker and hunter. Attempted escape would only assure his upmost wrath, and when she was already abused physically and mentally on a daily basis, it simply wasn’t worth the effort or mental strain. So, unable to escape Vidar’s clutches, it was of no surprise that Naama soon found herself with pups a few months after their regretful meeting. Skana’s older twin brothers, Vepar and Valac, were the first litter Naama bore to Vidar.

Vepar was the only pup of the two to survive though, and, while Vidar tended to kill many of his illegitimate—imperfect—offspring, he saw something in Vepar. Vidar granted Naama the privilege to keep his son, but also regularly took the child away from her. When Vepar had become old enough to leave his mother’s side, Vidar had made sure that it was his company that the boy spent most of his time with. Vepar quickly grew to hate Vidar for who he was and for the abuse he regularly inflicted on Naama. So, when Naama became pregnant once more, Vepar had made every intention to liberate them from their captor.

When the signs of a potentially violent storm began its slow approach on the horizon, Vepar saw his chance. Using his favor with his father to his advantage, Vepar had managed to give his mother and him the break they needed to escape from Vidar’s ever watchful gaze and slip away into the night. The pregnant mother and her son managed to escape Vidar thanks to the storm obscuring any route they may have taken, but they were ever mindful to keep a wary eye over their shoulders. Vidar was not known for giving up, and if he found them, there would be hell to pay. Skana came into the world with her sister, Calypso, not long after Vepar and Naama’s escape, but, unfortunately, Calypso did not live to draw more than a few breaths before passing away.

While Vepar took on the role as the family’s provider and protector, Naama raised Skana as best she could. She tried to teach Skana to be more civilized, something she had wanted to teach Vepar, but never got the chance due to Vidar. Skana’s ever inquisitive, young mind allowed her to absorb the basic, fundamental scribbles her mother scrawled into the dirt, and it wasn’t long before she was taught how to put the words with the basic sounds and words she spoke every day. And, after seeing her mother patch up some of Vepar’s mild wounds, it wasn’t long before little Skana was trying to mimic her there as well. Any attempt at making Skana more modernized stopped there though.

At twelve weeks of age, another great storm like the one that Vepar and Naama had used to escape Vidar separated Skana and Vepar from their mother. The two siblings searched for their mother high and low, but were unable to find any sign of her. Skana was distraught when her brother slowly began to stop looking for their mother, and was at odds with him before he explained to her that they weren’t really giving up. Nova Scotia was their heading, the last place the family had been steadily heading towards before they were separated. Their mother would be at the end of the road. She would be there. She had to.

Vepar took on the added responsibility of raising young Skana, teaching her how to shift, raising her to be self-sufficient, and be able to fight whatever odds Fate threw at them. It was a rough, trying, childhood for Skana, but with her brother at her side, she managed to live through it. She kept up with what little skills her mother had managed to teach her before their untimely departure, ever aware that such seemingly useless abilities could prove useful to them at any point in their travels. When she became old enough to assist him, Skana was eager to become something more than another hungry mouth to feed. The two siblings battled on, and, slowly but surely, they made their way to Nova Scotia. Somewhere in these lands, Skana hopes that they will find their mother.

At ‘Souls

2013
Skana was carried into the new land on the back of her brother, dead-tired from their endless traveling, but refusing to rest. Vepar arranged for the two to be taken in under the care of the Sangi'lak wolves, a peaceful clan, and the first pack the two siblings had ever met in their lifetime. The siblings replenished their health under the protection of the pack, and had their bellies full for the duration of their stay. When the pack was in the proceedings of a great move though, Skana decided to do a bit of adventuring on her own, resulting into the two siblings going their separate ways for the first time.

The young she-wolf met many acquaintances along the way. She met up with the distraught and grief-stricken mother, Tayui Aston, who thought Skana was an enemy wolf to the pack, Vinátta. Skana was able to prove her innocence though, and learned that a villainous individual was preying on innocent children. Moving on, she learned of a woman-exalted culture from the friendly, though submissive, fellow named Hugleikr Silfr. On the search for her brother, Skana learned how to make leather from deerskin from a pleasant loner named Chardonnay Chartreuse, and, even learned the basics of tattooing from the guarded and ritualistic stranger, Leon Bloodmane.

2014
As winter came, Skana took a turn for the worse. Having never been alone for so long, the enjoyment of it had lost its luster. She missed her brother and his company, but with no sign of him anywhere, she had fallen off course. She stumbled upon a sophisticated loner by the name of Judas. He offered her to share his fire during a bad snow storm, and, later, offered to help her find her brother. Desperate and ecstatic to hear this, Skana agreed to help Judas in return, following him to find his friends in Halifax. Unbeknownst to her, it was a trap.

Judas knocked her unconscious before they ever reached the vacant city, and then proceeded to become a living nightmare for the naively trusting Skana. Bound, Skana was in no position to fight her abuser. He marched her to an old abandoned hunting shack, where he continued his curious inquiries. Judas tortured her, slicing open her palms when she didn’t answer his questions or gave him an answer he didn’t like. When she chose to try ignoring him, he cut a chunk out of her right ear as punishment. When Skana chose to take a more violent route, Judas made her quickly change her tune by cutting her deeply just above where her heart would be. Skana eventually passed out from the pain.

When she came to, Judas was nowhere to be found, having left long before she returned to the world of the living. Skana managed to escape her bindings, no longer prevented from such now that her tormentor was gone, and slowly but surely nursed herself back to health. Being a lone wolf though posed its problems, and life was much harder now that she was sporting injuries. Pursuit hunting was out of the question during her early days, and Skana had to resort to using coursing and trapping techniques.

A month after her attack, she was found by her brother, Vepar after a failed hunting attempt. The two siblings discussed their journeys thus far, and Skana tentatively revealed Judas’ attack to him. Vepar recommended she join his pack, Anathema, which she did the following day, meeting Panda Behr and her mate, Venom Trombetta, at the pack’s borders. Her joining gifts were a pair of elk antlers still attached to the mighty animal’s head, as well as a makeshift bag of venison made from the animal’s own hide. Kentaro Lykoi was later called, and accepted Skana into his pack.

Skana has since tried her best to integrate herself into the pack atmosphere, though has been reasonably reluctant to let her guard down after her attack. After letting her settle in a little bit, Vepar gifted Skana with a seal-skin satchel full of medical supplies, and later introduced her to her temporary mentor, Ciellen Loreath. The two worked as apprentice and mentor for a few weeks before Ciellen and Skana split ways.

The silver she-wolf followed her pack as Anathema chose to move south, having become surrounded by their enemies in their old home. She stayed close to her brother’s side after the move, and was reluctant to stray too far from her sense of security.

2015
She began to become more independent of Vepar after attending her first Rast in celebration of Lithia Napier and Tzila Napier’s coming of age. Skana then met Bridget Rhiannon, one of the pack’s few healing-field of study wolves. Their conversation sparked Skana’s desire to pursue the rank of Furcas. She became further acquainted with Lithia, Kentaro and his children, Axelle Napier, Itzal, Nyx, and Lukos. The spring floods of 2015 earned her the companionship of a Great Horned Owl named Thanos, whom she nursed back to health in both the physical and mental sense. Further pack interactions were made with Nyx—who was becoming to be something of a friend to Skana—as well as with Kentaro’s daughter, Evangeline Lykoi.

Skana began to venture more outside of the pack once she became confident in herself once more. She met Veri Secanti and her adopted son during a medicinal run near Casa di Cavalieri, Cahan Leath-Rana, whom she found gravely injured during an exploration expedition, the familiar face of Chardonnay Chartreuse while exploring near Rabbit Lake, was saved by an exotic and slightly crazy coyjack named Daeva Lykoi, and was accosted by a curious and devious coyote called Liir Altav only days after the event with the first Infernian, Daeva.

When her brother found out of her recent adventures, and how close Skana had become to becoming a victim once again, he temporarily banned her from leaving the pack without another Anatheman with her. Skana was reasonably outraged by the loss of her freedom, but heeded to the older sibling’s request. She attended a social party headed by Lukos and Nyx, and adventured Yarmouth with Theron Caine.

In July of 2015, Kentaro called for the group of loners that had been on-and-off again harassing Anathema to be captured. Skana and Vepar participated in their seizure, but were reluctant to participate in the events that followed. Kentaro saw to use the five rogues for amusement purposes, and allowed members of Anathema to fight them in an arena fight in the amphitheater. Skana held the prisoners of little regard out of loyalty to her pack, but, generally felt pity on them for their situation. She became close with the rogue group’s leader, Malus Reinhart, and saw to save him from death and possible maltreatment by one of her peers. She volunteered to fight him in an arena fight, and won, claiming him as a personal slave. Skana nursed the loner back to health, and the two became more comfortable with one another as their time together increased. While her brother, Vepar, did not approve or like the slave, he did allow Skana to keep him, if only for her opinions on the Reinhart.

Shortly after the Summer Solstice festival, Skana ventured out to replenish Anathema’s reserves, only to find herself helping out a handicapped male named Jehan de L’Or and his undisciplined ward, Clover. Skana clinical skills were also extended to fellow packmate, Axelle, who needed assistance in overcoming a traumatic experience. The encounter led to Skana pursuing the Psychiatra co-rank.

August of 2015 brought about a war that the silver Creo wished she had never been a part of. When a member of Anathema was allegedly said to be in trouble, the pack took rash actions to come to her aide. Believing it a just cause—although lacking in information and details—Skana and Malus were part of the group that set out to recover Pride Tormenta. In the end, Skana found herself forced to fight a frightened teen, Marius Damaichu. The aftermath led to the destruction of the feral pack, New Dawn. The unnecessary conflict caused Skana to question Anathema, its morals, and its leadership. Since her joining of the pack, it was the first time Skana was conflicted with her loyalty to Anathema.

Upon returning to the safety of the pack territory, Skana found herself restless and strove for a distraction. She convinced Vepar to explore the Ethereal Eclipse with her, and was reunited with Daeva. Days later, Skana offered her assistance and expertise to the promising prince, Greed Lykoi, and took the boy out on a hunt with her. She and Vepar later attended the royal children’s Rast, to which further put a rift in Skana’s conflicting feelings about Anathama.

The mysterious and unexplained disappearance of pack member, Itzal, in September of 2015 took a heavy toll on the pack, and, after a little over a month of looking, the search was called off. Skana felt the guilt of her past actions against New Dawn and her latest inadequacy in finding their missing pack member to be too great, and expressed to her brother, Vepar, that she agreed that they should leave Anathema. She freed her slave, Malus, the night before the siblings left. They left quietly and without a goodbye in early-November of 2015, not wanting to cause a scene, and told only Axelle of their departure.

Vepar’s friend, Sully joined them as they traveled north in search of a new place to call “home.” Malus found the group not long after his departure from Anathema, and asked to be able to join them on their journeys. Initially denied by Vepar, Skana convinced her brother, and the ex-slave became part of their misfit, traveling party. Along the way, they bumped into the Infernian, Daeva, once again, and were helped by Akantha Amaranthe, who temporarily housed the party within Sapient in a show of hospitality. Skana, individually, met an ex-New Dawner, Callum Knight and an injured coyote named Gabriel.

Sully, eventually, was able to steer the group in the direction of Midnight Shores, where they were later accepted as members in late-November of 2015 by Esmeralda Collins. Sully and Skana’s relationship grew rapidly from the group’s almost three weeks of constant travel with one another, and the thereafter continued proximity to one another once they were accepted into Midnight Shores.

Despite knowing the pack’s rocky relationship with Anathema, Skana did her best to prove her and her brother’s standing with them, and met and befriended fellow new members, Rowtag and Bear. Skana made multiple trips back to the mainland, reuniting with Evangeline Lykoi and her ex-slave, Briston, on one such occasion.

Skana’s work ethic and activity within the pack earned her a promotion from Pollux to Cepheus.

6.1  Timeline

Year 2013

  • September: After nearly a year and a half of traveling, Skana and her brother, Vepar Creo, finally make it to Nova Scotia. The siblings briefly stay with the nomadic pack, Sangi'lak, before deciding to move on. Skana had a brief and tense encounter with Tayui Aston when she wandered off from the busy Sangi'lak wolves.
  • October: Skana and her brother split ways, deciding to adventure their new home on their own.
  • November: Skana searches the countryside for her brother, running into an oddly polite silver-furred loner named Hugleikr Silfr. She also met a hybrid, Chardonnay Chartreuse, who taught her the basics of how to make leather from deer hide.
  • December: Still in search of her brother's whereabouts, Skana accidentally stumbles upon a wolf named Leon Bloodmane, who is performing a strange ritual; he teaches her about tattooing.

Year 2014

  • January: Skana finds herself wandering through a snow storm in her stubbornness to stop her search for Vepar. A seemingly kind wolf named Judas Poer de Aika XIII offers her the comfort of his fire, and lures Skana into a dangerous encounter that makes her change her optimistic view on life.
  • February: Having nearly given up hope on finding her brother and suffering from the poor decisions of her last encounter with a stranger, Skana attempts to do some hunting, only to have Vepar appear out of nowhere. After a lengthy talking-to, Vepar convinces Skana to join Anathema.
  • March: Vepar gifts Skana a satchel full of healing supplies and brings its previous owner, Ciellen Loreath, to teach her as much as he can about the healing arts. Ciellen Loreath and Skana’s apprenticeship ends when Ciellen feels it is time for him to move on. Skana spends the rest of her days trying to integrate herself more with the pack and become more involved, though, she is reasonably hesitant with allowing herself to trust others.
  • April-November: Skana secludes herself from the rest of the pack for the most part, still not accustomed to the pack lifestyle or trusting of its members to not hurt her. She follows her brother when the pack decides to move south.
  • December: Now in new territory, Skana spends most of her time exploring and collecting medicinal items when not accompanying her brother. She has gotten better with trusting her packmates, but finds herself reluctant to seek any out for social interaction.

Year 2015

  • January: Skana attends her first Rast.
  • February: Encounter with Bridget Rhiannon sparks Skana’s interest in the medical tier. Interacts with various pack members, and even attends a pack hunt.
  • March: Earns the beginner medical-discipline rank, Furcas. Survives the heavy flooding caused by the storms, and earns the companionship of Thanos, a Great Horned Owl, after she rescues him and treats his injuries of both body and heart. She further integrates herself with her pack.
  • April: Begins to take her travels outside of Anathema for the first time, meeting members of Casa di Cavalieri. She also pup-sits the young, Evangeline Lykoi.
  • May: Further travels outside the pack, meeting Midnighter, Cahan Leath-Rana, and becoming reacquainted with Chardonnay Chartreuse.
  • June: More explorations outside of Anathema borders. She runs into two Infernian, the playful Daeva Lykoi and the deceitful Liir Altav. She also attends a social gathering, and explores Yarmouth with Theron Caine.
  • July: Participates in the capture of five loners that were harassing Anathema, and the eventual fighting tournament in which these loners were put on for display. Skana volunteers to fight the group’s leader Malus Reinhart after unknowingly bonding with the rogue, and saves him a cruel death by claiming him to be her slave. After the festival, Skana meets the vagabond Jehan de L’Or and his young companion, Clover.
  • August: Skana helps calm Axelle Napier from a mental meltdown, thus sparking interest in the Psychiatra co-rank. She also participates in the hasty war against New Dawn, and is riddled with guilt when she realizes Anathema’s mission was not to retrieve a “captured” packmate as she had been told, but to destroy the feral pack entirely. She is left with unsettling feelings and is greatly ashamed by her participation—unwilling or not.
  • September-October: Tries to distract herself from the previous month’s events by traveling outside the territory—where she meets an old acquaintance—and helping the young prince, Greed Lykoi. She attends her second Rast, but instead of feeling proud, has uneasy feelings by the next generation’s chosen adornments and how they came to obtain them. Pack member, Itzal goes missing, which leads to a month-long manhunt. Skana does her best to consult a distraught Axelle, but, when there is less evidence with each passing day, it becomes clear that Itzal will not be found. Earns the lieutenant medical-rank, Volac.
  • November: Skana finally agrees with her brother that they should leave Anathema. After freeing Malus from his indentured life, Skana and Vepar decide to leave quietly on their own, informing only their close friend and leader, Axelle, of their departure. They traverse the Nova Scotia wilderness with friend, Sully, and are later re-joined by the freed Malus. They meet a variety of faces both new and old before finally finding themselves on Midnight Shores’ doorstep, where they are accepted by Esmeralda Collins as members. She was given the rank of Pollux.
  • December: In attempt to promote good feelings in her new pack, Skana tried to interact with her new packmates. She made multiple trips back to the mainland to help bolster Midnight Shore’s medical supplies, and met an old acquaintance from Anathema. Her hard work and effort earned her a promotion to Cepheus.

Year 2016

  • January: She was very active with the pack, from improving her home to chasing off trespassers from its borders. Skana also acted as a host for a guest from Sapient, as well as helped a packmate deliver goods to Casa di Cavalieri. She ran into some old acquaintances and met a Vináttan. Early in the month, acting on their feelings for one another, she became pregnant by Sully.
  • February: In the final weeks of her pregnancy, Skana stayed on the island in her Lupus form. Restless, she did what she could in her heavily pregnant condition without endangering herself or her unborn children. She met and befriended two shrikes, Thistle and Thorn.
  • March: Skana gave birth to her first litter, bringing forth Saleos and Asura into the world. She mostly kept to her whelping den, not wanting to leave her children’s side during their early stages of life. Elsie Hennamin gifted the new mother with a blanket for the little ones. Skana’s continued activity and effort in the pack in the previous months gained her a promotion to Spica.
  • April: Everything went to shit with the world and Sully asked her to be his mate.
