Taylor Hayes

Taylor Hayes, sired by Cain Hayes, a wandering loner, and raised by Rune Williams as part of an all-female clan of fighters. Under her mother's tutelage, a young and naive Taylor was raised to believe that females were the dominant sex, but the group also had an innate fear and hatred of males, which confused the wolfdog, as she thought female and male were one and the same.

Her naivete ended abruptly, however, when a powerful group of male mercenaries found their way to the warrior clan, drugging their water source then attacking the weakened clan. Taylor, shaken and terrified, saw her own mother die by the mercenaries' hands, and she fled. Unwilling to go back to the clan that had been beaten so easily by a gender they had all feared, she traveled her homeland, eventually finding her way to Nova Scotia and to the pack Sapient.


Currently Taylor is a member of Sapient, ranked Opus Parva and holder of the Mιtier Jailer.

    • Optime Hair: Taylor keeps her hair cut short and lets her long bangs fall into her eyes.
  • Facial Features: Shows her Elkhound heritage most clearly.
  • Build and Size: Tall and powerful. Taylor puts on an impending first impression, although when she's more relaxed (or tipsy) she can be much more approachable.
    • Lupus: Clearly wolf-like, with strong muscles underneath her thick fur.
    • Secui: Large and powerful, when Taylor's in Secui form you know she means business.
    • Optime: Still having noticeable muscles, Taylor stands like an imposing boxer.
  • Humanization: Medium. Taylor is still connected to her feral roots, although the use of her two other forms has dwindled since she joined Sapient. She readily uses tools and weapons, although she prefers a limited wardrobe.

1.2  Forms

Lupus

105 lbs (48 kg)39 in (99 cm)
Taylor only uses Lupus in the most dire of situations, only bringing the feral form out when there's no other choice. She can be quite tough even in this form, though, and is skilled fighting tooth and claw as well.

Secui

160 lbs (72 kg)49 in (124 cm)
Taylor's Secui form is a blend of raw feral power and streamlined speed and agility. She grows more fur around her neck, and gains more muscle, making her Secui form the go-to one for hunting and feral combat.

Optime

245 lbs (109 kg)6ft 10in (208 cm)
Taylor's most used form is powerful and square, with a boxer physique and dominant stature. She has no problem about showing off her battle prowess when she wants to, and is surprisingly humanized in this form despite her choice of clothing.

5.  History: Before Souls

Sired by a wandering father and born into a clan where female dominance and combat prowess were all that mattered, Taylor was instantly thrust into a world of violence. Inadvertently influenced by her mothers barely concealed dislike of males, she grew up questioning the views and logic of those around her; it was difficult to phantom why such strong warriors would fear and despise a gender, assuming that female and male alike were the same.

Her naοvetι didn't last long though, for the female group may have kept away from others but they had not gone undetected; a large group of male mercenaries had worked to drug the main water supplies the clan had access to, resulting in the slow demise of the family she had come to know.

Before her very eyes, she watched powerful males slaughter all she loved and saw her own mother fall dead at her feet, staring at her mother's corpse helpless like the child she was, struck by panic and froze until her mothers words of long ago kicked in, knowledge of survival filled her and she turned tail and fled the scene.

With the death of her mother and an unknown father, she had no ‘home’ to return to; the clan were clearly weak and she refused to return to fools who were slaughtered so easily and cared little if any had survived. She mourned her mother, but kept moving forward without turning back. From this tragic event, something within her changed; as much as she feared males now, she could not hate them for the right reasons; she was jealous of the strength and structure and wanted to be like them, but she knew such a feat was impossible and so she despised them for having such natural strength she could never obtain.

Constantly thinking about her clans defeat, she begun to follow and cautiously interact with males; keeping any and all emotions out. Over time she learnt to behave like them, to speak as a male does and dress like some do, for she believed now that females were weak and helpless and found comfort in living like a male; it made her feel safe, to feel strong.
