2.1  Ideals

Traits

Faithful, Serious, Workaholic, Straight-Forward, Inexperienced, Determined, Stubborn

  • Outlook: Somewhat pessimistic, tries to be optimistic
  • Sociability: Introverted
  • Expression: Very serious. Much brooding.
  • Alignment: Lawful Good

Motivations

  • Tenny strives to achieve everything he does in life to a high standard. Constantly pushing himself to be the best at everything, to make his father and mother proud.
  • Being the only child of his mixed blood line he is driven to make his parents proud of him and earn a place in the Knight family for his mother, whom was forced live separate from the Knight Clan.
  • His mother was raised with a strict belief in the Knight's God Fenris and Knight Tradition, Tennyson was raised to put his enter heart and body into this tradition to establish himself as a Knight, but not to both his father with religious matters.

Fears

  • Unsurprisingly, one of his greatest fears is failure itself. To try and not succeed, to be rejected or to otherwise not do well.
  • Public image means a lot to him as he is very prideful and worries about becoming like those he judges.
  • Being a wolf of tradition and discipline his worst nightmare is a world of chaos and disorder.

Spirituality

  • The Knight Clan runs on the belief of Fenris, the wolf sun god. Legend tells that when Fenris lived the sky was only lit by the stars, good souls that had fallen. He lived his life as a mighty warrior working for others, protecting the weak, helping those in need, and vanquishing all that would harm for selfish reasons. He died of old age, loved by all around him. When he died he became the brightest star in the sky, the sun, so that he may shed light in all corners of the Earth as he did in life. His heart was so pure that even when he rests and the other good souls light up the sky, he is still the brightest in the sky (the moon). It is not mandatory for all Knights to be very religious though the majority believe that Fenris is the sun and moon and that the stars are the souls of those who led life as he did. The goal of a Knight religiously is to live in the Sun God's footsteps by protecting others and trying to do as much good in the world as they can so that they too may help light up the night sky while he rests.

Biases

  • Non-Luperci:
    • Influenced by his father's strong dislike of non-Luperci, Tennyson has been confused about how to view them. As he has yet to truly converse or meet with them for himself, however, he leans towards a dislike towards them.
  • Sexuality:
    • Raised in an a part of Italy where homosexual relations were frowned upon, Tenny has reservations and general discomfort towards the idea, clinging to more traditional beliefs that were strongly approved upon.

Sexuality

  • Kinsey 2: "Predominately heterosexual, only incidentally homosexual".
  • His knowledge of Homosexual relationships is far from proper. He only knows of them from brief, negative whispers on the wind, and is uncertain how to think of them. It is, thus, that he is ever conflicted when he finds himself eyeing a male -- thinking them beautiful just as he would a female.
  • Although he may be seen perhaps admiring multiple suitors, he is a one person sort of man. He pours all his attention and love towards them. And thus, he is not the type to do one-night-stands. He will only sleep with someone should he seek more from them.
  • Oddly enough, the gentlemanly Knight has a shameful side that he tries to keep hidden. He isn't aware of it himself yet, but his dominance in the bed brings forth a beast within. Animalistic tendencies take over, and he is far from gentle a lover.

Interests

  • Likes: A list of single or few-worded interests: e.g., horses, animal husbandry, leather-working, hunting, howling, running, jumping, playing, begetting a vast number of progeny, etc.
  • Dislikes: A list of single or few-worded dislikes
    • Maybe a BIG DISLIKE HERE

Substances

Tennyson disapproves of substance use unless used for urgent medical care. Otherwise, he tends to see those who freely use them as beneath him. He has not, however, tried any substance before and perhaps will change his mind if pressured into giving it a shot. It depends greatly on who offers him the substance.

3.1  Family: Knight, Auditore, Damaichu

Familial Relations

  • Rizzo Grassi-Knight Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Cras ut tortor urna. Quisque ac ornare enim.
  • Sabrael Vela and Genevieve Auditore: his youngest two siblings are not known to him as of yet.
  • Vedetta Auditore Tenny had a tense relationship with his more serious older brother; often trying to be like him and match up to his image. Currently, Tenny is unaware of his death.
  • Desiderio Auditore, his only littermate, and yet, how different they are. Conflicting personalities bore a storm within Tennyson, of whom did not approve of his brother’s mischievous ways. It started when they were young. His brother a free bird without fear. He spread his wings; went where he wished and did as he pleased. Tennyson, on the other hand, was much too content learning from his peers. His deep rooted fascination with the Knights made him stern in his mindset, believing his brother to be childish for his insistence of play. Nonetheless, Tennyson dotted on him. Eventually, he would cave. His gruff exterior fading for those moments he enjoyed underneath the Italian sun alongside his brother. It is, however, when they finally arrive in Nova Scotia with the intentions of joining Casa di Cavalieri that Tennyson Knight was left heartbroken (though only in secret), for he was the only one of his immediate family that ended up staying. His siblings and father went elsewhere.

    He later learned of his family’s residence in Sapient, a new pack at the time that sprout in October of 2014. Desiderio joined with their father, Leonardo. The pull tugged on Tennyson. Duty and his ambitions within Casa di Cavalieri—a family, mind you, that did not abandon him—eventually won over the silent urge to be with him. During a diplomat ball, however, disaster struck. His beloved brother was slayed by one of Casa di Cavalieri’s own; Lola. His choice to remain with Casa di Cavalieri, for those few first weeks, drove him mad. It had been in self-defense, they said. Tennyson was enraged. “My brother”, he cried! But alas, he knew, deep down, that the innocent Desiderio he played with in youth was not the same as the man killed that day. Tennyson grew further hatred of himself for being unable to stick up for his blood; to think him guilty of the crimes his brother was accused of so easily.

    On the first year anniversary of Desiderio’s death, he mourned him alone.

  • Lola was a trusted member of Casa di Cavalieri that Tennyson treated with respect. The Lead Diplomat during a ball held by Sapient, it was expected that she use her position and wisdom to her utmost ability. Instead, it ended with the murder of none other than Tennyson’s very littermate, Desiderio. The loathing of her existence did not wane with her demotion from Lead Diplomat to Corpa Seconda. Despite him learning of his brother’s drunken state, Tennyson continues to harbour resentment for the woman to this very day; whilstnot as strong as it once was, if she is around, it is no surprise that Tennyson looks upon her with apparent dislike.

5.  History

Born in Sabini, Italy, his father took up physical labour, working himself to the bone each day, along with Vedetta Auditore, the pair doing odd jobs within the port to give the family a good life. With the men away at work, his care primarily fell to that of his well-to-do mother, who devoted herself to raising her sons with stories of her cultural heritage. Whilst perhaps not her intent, as a result Tennyson grew up with the pressure of his mother, Rizzo's, heritage - she was born to a Knight and a dog, her dog heritage resulting in their existence remaining a secret from the Knight Clan, out of fear that the traditionalist pure wolf clans reaction. Rizzo was taught about the Knight Clan's traditions and religion by her father Ares and passed on her learnings to her son, Tennyson, in hopes that he would be able to reclaim a spot among the Knight's that was taken from her due to her higher dog heritage.

Being born into a high class merchant city he was exposed to a very humanised lifestyle from birth. At the tender age of four months Tennyson and the rest of his family left his mother behind in search of the pack run by Rizzo's brother, Jazper Rhiannon-Knight, to follow in the Knight Tradition. Expressing as much to his father, Leonardo along with his four children (Vedetta, Salvatrice, Tennyson and Desiderio) depart Italy via boat and set sail for North America. The Auditore's seek Sebastian, Leonardo's brother as a place to start in these new lands.

5.1  2013

Arriving in the new lands, the family reach Casa di Cavalieri, following the trail of Sebastian and words of Rizzo, only to discover that the two are not elusive - rather, the knights and Auditores are in one place. Adapting to his new home, Tennyson tentatively begins to reach out and meet his new packmates, learning more of the culture and life he'd be living in Casa. It wasn't long after arriving, however, that his family splits, opting to go their own ways and pursue their own interest, allowing him to flourish and find his feet in his independence among his extended family.
