Svasra

Svasra is a wolf-coyote-dog hybrid who was raised by her nomadic uncle. She was born in Colorado, where her parents dumped her on her uncle and exited her life. After growing old enough to go out on her own she wandered slowly in the direction of Nova Scotia, where she eventually joined Salsola. She had a short doomed romance with Gehenna Asylum and after a gross love-dovey month or so of secret meetings and delusional dreaming, she bore his son Saut Asylum and left Salsola. Her adopted sister Andras Novosad took her to Kentucky to meet her parents and uncle.

While in Kentucky Svas goofed again and became pregnant after a one-night fling with Jascha Pastukh. Fed up with herself and haunted by those she left behind in Nova Scotia, she headed north again - followed closely by jerk Jascha, who wanted the children she carried. Along the way she gave birth to three children, only one of whom survives - Wendigo Novosad. She managed to evade capture and rejoined Salsola, developing a (rational) fear of its leaders. Before she could prove herself, Jascha finally caught up to her and captured them. In early 2016 they make a final escape attempt. While fleeing Wendigo accidentally led her mother off a cliff. Her body broke Svasra's fall, but she died of a bad head wound (and probably a lot of internal bleeding) a few minutes after. Jascha found his "mate" passed out over their daughter's body. He made a small effort to nurse her back to health, but since he placed the entirety of the blame on her he decided that she wasn't worth it and left her to die.


Still wounded, and suffering from severe depression, Svasra is slowly making her way back towards Nova Scotia.

1.  Appearance

1.1  Basics

Essentials

  • Species: Svas looks mostly wolf, with very little dog apparent and some coyote in her snout and ears and movements
  • Fur: Thin fur but fluffy – doesn't do much against the cold. Mostly smooth and soft – usually a bit messy.
    • Optime Hair: Doesn't have exceptionally long hair – it reaches to just below the nape of her neck. It's dark with a few lighters streaks of oak, and while not exactly curly it borders on it, with a wavy, thick texture. Also usually messy. As of late 2014: During her time in KY, Svas cut her hair to just barely brush her shoulders. As such, it has become slightly wavier and fuller in volume, but it's just as messy as before.
  • Facial Features: Mostly wolfish – slightly longer/more slender snout.
  • Build and Size: Slightly taller than the average female – not exceptionally brawny or bulky. She's mostly lean and taut, and moderately muscled, with curves gained from having two children and slight pockets of fat on her hips. She has, however, lost most of her pregnancy weight.
    • Lupus: Slightly larger than average, with normal-length legs but a long, fluffy body.
    • Optime: Tall, carries herself well but warily. She usually looks very alert and subdued.
  • Humanization: While she grew up in a feral way, she was raised by a moderately humanized uncle. She isn't fond of too-human clothing, but enjoys and prefers several other human commodities.

Coloration

  • Fur: Primarily Shark (#232324) on her flank, arms, and legs, with darker upper tones of Cod Grey (#111110) and mottled accents of Jambalaya (#5e3311).
  • Markings: Jambalaya (#5e3311) strips; belly, haunches and muzzle are Tuna (#303031), fading into lighter areas of Chicago (#5f5c57). Her paws and backs of ears are Cod Black.
  • Eyes: Brandy Punch (#cc8f26)
  • Optime Hair: Night Rider (#120A08) and Tamarind (#2F1713)
    • Nose and Paw Pads: Black

Forms

Lupus

92 pounds (42 kg) · 37 in (94 cm)
Svasra's build is slightly larger than your average female wolf, but not in a way that makes her look bulky. She remains lean and slender, with large paws and medium-length, smooth fur. She doesn't enter this form often, preferring it only when she's in desperate need of food or if she's traveling through a particularly cold area.

Secui

159 pounds (72 kg) · 45 in (114 cm)
Though she doesn't necessarily dislike this form, Svasra has little experience with Secui form and has only shifted into it once or twice. Her limbs become longer and stronger, and her fur gets a bit fluffier, but otherwise she looks much the same. Her dog heritage is most apparent in Secui.

Optime (Preferred)

216 pounds (- kg) · 6 ft 11 in (211 cm) Being the preferred form, Svasra's coyote heritage is most apparent when in Optime. She's long-limbed and moves with a lanky, smooth stride. She prefers not to wear clothing, and leaves her hair clean but wild. If she is wearing something, it'll be a loose shirt and pair of trousers she made for herself.

Interaction

  • Speech: Alto, smooth voice. She doesn't say much unless necessary. Usually has a polite, grammatically correct way of speaking, and occasionally says really socially weird or unexpected things because she's a little socially inept. Recently she has become more subdued, and often won't say anything unless it's of import. Her voice most resembles Susan Eisenberg's.
  • Scent: Her musk is a mix of earthy scents, dominantly sage and other minty things, with a mossy, dead-leaf undertone. Also carries hints of wolf, coyote, female, and Salsola, and most recently a milky, mother-y scent.
  • General Posture and Body Language: Generally very erect and alert; carries her shoulders straight and back. Mostly dominant – submissive only when necessary.
  • Quirks, Gestures, Etc.:
    • Once she was quite transparent - since returning to Salsola there is little to be seen in her expression.
    • Touchy-feely - she has an imperfect sense of personal space, and is known to brush her fingers softly over one's arms or shoulders while she speaks to them.

3.  Relationships

3.1  Family: Novosad

3.2  Relations

Key Relations

  • Jascha Pastukh Father of her second child. He's a bit of a jerk and a creep, and she doesn't really want him around her kid, but she doesn't feel she can do anything about it.
  • Saut Asylum Her first child by Gehenna. She did nothing for the boy except name him. After her time in Kentucky, however, she feels severe regret for leaving him and yearns to have a relationship with him, although she is unsure how to reach out to him.
  • Wendigo Novosad She was unexpected, but Svasra is determined to do for her what she failed to do for Saut.

Positive Relations

  • Rhaenyras Masadal – Svas rescued her from her rapist uncle – they're very close and lived together in Salsola until Svasra returned home.
  • Lokr Revlis – Convinced her to join Salsola. Their few interactions were a bit awkward, but she is fond of him. She feels a great deal of gratitude and possibly feels a bit indebted to him, since he allowed her back into Salsola.
  • Andras Novosad - Her adopted sister, assisted with Saut's birth and led her home.

Neutral / Negative

  • Gehenna Asylum – Gehenna was one of the first people she encountered after emerging from the southern wilds, and while their meeting got off to a rocky start they quickly developed a conversation and he advised her on a few things. Their relationship grew until it ended with her pregnancy. She proceeded to dump their child on him and push him out of her mind, struggling with her understanding for his actions and for her feelings of betrayal.
  • Octavius Poer de Angelo – They fought and he stole her food. She'll probably remember his face with hard feelings.

Minor Relations

  • Enemies: Nobody really yet
  • Murders: Rhae's uncle and cousin

4.  Skills and Inventory

4.1  Abilities

Hunting

  • Education and Learning: Growing up in the wilderness has made her an efficient hunter. Her uncle taught her everything she knows. While she uses stealth and tools to her advantage rather than truly attacking her prey, she is working on that, as well
  • Tracking (Master): While Svasra's senses are no better than average, she has learned to read signs in the environment to lead her to prey, dens, or people. She very rarely fails to notice something.
  • Snaring (Master): It is difficult for a lone wolf to hunt things conventionally, so she has perfected her uncle's method of trapping and snaring small animals. They do not take her long to make, and she only needs bait.
  • Lupus (Journeyman): She understands the basics (stalk, wait, pounce), but has trouble with the actual fight when it comes to larger prey. She is often thrown off and discouraged, but has learned to go for the legs and tire the animal before actually going for the throat.

Acrobatics/Athleticism

  • 'Education and Learning: She's extremely agile and athletic, and has amazing balance and acrobatics as a result of living on her own and training.
  • - (Journeyman): To add later
  • - (Master): -

Combat

  • Education and Learning: la
  • - Bla

4.2  Inventory

Items

Animal/Plant Products

  • Generally: 5-10 hides/pelts, which she uses to craft different leather/fur things
  • Owns the necessary tools to tan/dye hide
  • Generally has some animal fat, as well, which she uses to polish/return leather things to their natural shine
  • Also usually has dried meat that she eats - she enjoys certain fruits, too, if he can find them
  • Collects mushrooms/other herbs to snack on or chew, or for medicines.
  • Makes a mean stew

Horse Tack

  • A rough blanket made of hides, which she uses as a makeshift saddle
  • Several belt-like contraptions which she drapes over Vane
  • Several bags and packs hanging from the belts

Clothing/Miscellaneous

  • One old lantern, three unused candles
  • An ancient, half-destroyed copy of The Scarlet Letter
  • Several daggers

5.  Residence

Shitty Cabin, Pine Barrens, Salsola

  • Svasra has set herself up in a small log cabin which lays to the western reaches of the Pine Barrens, just southeast of Lake Ligeia. A small stream runs nearby, emptying into the lake and concealed by the trees. The cabin had fallen into a state of near disrepair when she found it, but with the help of Rhaenyras Masadal it eventually returned to a livable state. It has two rooms - one main room, which takes up nearly the entire area of the cabin, and a side room, small and good only for storage. It does have a porch, shaded by two close-growing conifers, and Svasra has built a makeshift "clothesline" attached to the cabin's back end, from which she hangs pelts and herbs. She hopes to build a small shed outside, within which she will keep horse feed and a trough for Vane. There is also a fireplace, part of which has crumbled into a small pile of stones, but is still usable. She keeps candles and books on the stones, which she has arranged into a neat pile. The chimney has long since fallen through, and is nothing more than a hole in the roof.
  • The cabin is furnished with hides and blankets, and little else. The only usable furniture that was there when she originally arrived was an old wooden chair, which Svasra has draped with hides to make it comfortable, and it is situated near the fireplace. On the other end of the large room is the "bed," which is nothing more than a mass of hides and blankets atop a wooden block. Along the other wall is a long makeshift table, crafted by Svasra herself, on which lay her various small possessions.
