Alejandra Gianna Sanctus is currently a loner traveling with her friend, Solomon.

Hailing from Zion, she was born into the Boreas faction, but she left with her mother sometime before her first shift. She traveled to 'Souls for trade with her brother, Immanuel, whom left her to return to their mother after only a short time in the new land, leaving Aly all by her lonesome. She wandered for some time, but found herself accidentally trespassing upon Salsolan packlands, where she was discovered by Andrew Greygrief and taken in as his indentured servant.

After months of forced servitude under the fledgling Greygrief banner, in the middle of the night, Pontifex Troy Lykoi helped her escape from Salsola virtually undetected. For almost a month, she trekked Nova Scotia in an effort to distance herself from the Kingdom, and a few misadventures later, it appeared as though her luck had run out. However, by some miracle, she was saved by Johnathan Winthrop and his nephew Boone and taken back to Del Cenere Gang, where she could finally stop running.

She remained here for some time, drifting by and trying to help out where she could — however, the constant pressure of being in a coyote-dominant pack weighed heavily on her, even as she made fast friends and felt safe for the first time in her life. The catalyst for change arrived in the form of her previous master, Andrew, who also fled from Salsola right into the welcoming arms of the Ashen, adding a whole new dimension of stress on the ex-servant.

A chance meeting with an outsider left Aly wondering if something better for her lay beyond the horizon. It took the two several months to fall into a routine, as Solomon's condition made the uptake of their friendship rather slow, but eventually she made the bold decision to leave Del Cenere and take that leap of faith. Solomon was all too happy to oblige her and her troublesome horse, whom they had been working together to train under her hand.

They haven't a real goal in mind, but Aly hopes to sell her wares to travelers as she had originally intended more than a year and a half prior — and continue to avoid Salsola as best as she can, because the grim reality of repossession looms even now.

1.2  Personality

Overview

There was a time when Alejandra wasn't deathly scared of everything, but Salsola snuffed out the one brightly-burning flame.

She is indefinitely anxious, regardless if her fears are warranted. Not wanting to disappoint, she often doesn't inject herself into any situation she cannot reliably control, which explains why she only ever has true confidence in her craft, dressmaking. Otherwise, she is nervy, uncertain, and introverted.

However, this isn't to say one can't earn her trust. Alejandra truly does wish to be happy, but she isn't certain how to attain this for herself. Fatally gullible (and religious, as well), she can easily be molded under another's strong hand. On a positive note, though, she makes for a loyal friend and ever-patient listening ear. What little friends she does have, Aly will be very keen on keeping them, even if they lead her down less-than-savory paths, which is not out of the ordinary for the Ashen.

Biases

  • Packs: Raised on horror stories of Salsola and Inferni, though only one of those panned out to be as bad as the tales said. The latter isn't so bad, or at least its reincarnation isn't.
  • Species: Raised to inherently hate coyotes, as they are all despicable and unworthy. This is coupled by the countless atrocities carried out by the Scintilla. Her time in the Ashen is challenging this notion, however.
  • Non-Luperci: They're really missing out! Her brother thinks them stupid for not wanting to shift, but Aly thinks they just don't know.
  • Gender: Men are, according to her faith, the superior sex; women are to be subordinate. This is chiefly why Aly is so submissive and polite, as she does not want to overstep her designated role. However, she does fear large, boisterous men after an attempted rape.
  • Color: Reddish-toned canines are very pretty! Blue eyes are also very pretty! :>
  • Sexuality: Anything other than monogamous, heterosexual relationships are supposed to be looked down upon. Aly feels kind of bad that "sexual deviants" don't get to go to Heaven, though. It's a bit harsh.
  • Age: Puppies are sooooooooo cute but she never gets to see them. Old people are also cute!

Traits

  • Outlook: Ever since her capture, the world seems a little darker, but she constantly reassures herself that it is all according to her God's plan.
  • Sociability: Sometimes extroverted, more often than not introverted. Friendly and sweet, very obviously naive and vulnerable/gullible.
  • Expression: Very submissive; easily excitable; wears her emotions quite clearly on her face. Easy to coax into tears.
  • Motivations: One day working up the nerve to find her family
  • Fears: Not finding her way back home, losing all of her materials and creations, the dark, spiders, Salsola

Interests

  • Likes: Clothes, flowers, pretty things
  • Dislikes: Salsola, her old masters, sexually-charged men

Spirituality

She believes in the Abrahamic God, as most do from Zion. Her mother drilled the Ten Commandments and various other Christian beliefs into her children's heads, rendering Aly rather spiritual as she grew older. She prays often and sees coincidences as God's hand moving in the world, and she hopes by believing in Him and being a good person she can die and go to Heaven (though hopefully not while she's young). There have been a few instances where her faith was challenged, though, and she is a bit saddened to hear from her mother how the wolves of Boreas supposedly corrupted pieces of the faith for their own gains.

Sexuality

Wants to believe she's strictly heterosexual due to her upbringing. However, she is probably a closeted bisexual, as she loves to craft outfits and dresses that accent one's femininity and gushes over females constantly; this affinity for women has caused internal strife throughout her life. She is a hopeless romantic and one days wants to have a partner that is her knight in shining armor. Aly will probably never come to terms with her bisexual leanings in accordance to her faith and is unlikely to pursue same-sex relationships.

Substances

She wouldn't take anything intentionally. However, there's really no telling what she would think if she indulged in any substances; if they helped her forget her reality for even a moment, perhaps they would be desirable.

2.  Relationships

2.1  Family

  • Familial Influence: Sanctus?
  • Mother: Lydia
  • Father: Unknown
  • Siblings: Immanuel
  • Mate:
  • Children:

She misses her family dearly, even if her mother was somewhat abusive and her brother abandoned her. Because she never knew her father, Lydia and Manny were her entire world; she'd give anything to see them again.

2.2  Other Relations

Key Relations

  • Andrew Greygrief is the man that captured her, branded her, and changed her forever. When she escaped Salsola, she hoped to never see him again, but ghosts have a funny way of catching back up.
  • Pontifex Troy Lykoi makes Aly feel safe, as well as a miasma of other cottony feelings. While she is glad her friend is back in her life, it comes at a grave cost.

Notable Relations

  • Johnathan Winthrop — saved her from would-be rapists. He's a gracious man, but she disapproves of his sexual escapades.

Minor Relations

Notable Past Relations

  • Odalis is a fellow slave, and she and Aly have bonded over their shared misery and also keep a few hidden secrets from their masters together.
  • Micheal, a Mendicant. The two servants got fairly close, and had Aly stayed in Salsola longer, perhaps their friendship could have blossomed into something more. She misses Micheal, but she knows she can never see him again.
  • Eden de le Ulrich, despite his heritage, proved to be a pleasant and sweet boy. Aly helped him craft his faux flowers that he wears often on his arm. She is very fond of the boy and considers him a friend.
  • Narcissa Greygrief, he lady of her old house, terrified her. She was strict, harsh, sharp, and she didn't really cut Aly any slack. Also her cat actively tailed Aly to keep tabs on her but she was largely unaware of that.
  • Till Van Ulrich Lykoi, a man that at one point in time she was absolutely smitten with. He was the first one to introduce her to the world of romance; but their last secret meeting together left Aly disillusioned and confused when she realized how little she actually knew of the man. She fled from him and her feelings and has not seen him since, and while it took her some time to get over him, she eventually did. The consequences of flirting with the enemy of her household, however, are long-lasting, and it was this illicit relationship with Till that sent Aly on a downward spiral.
  • Symre Rask is insane. This bitch is crazy and she scares the hell out of Aly with her witchcraft and her devil-worshiping and her stick-portal havin' ass.

3.  Skills

Strengths

  • Seamstressing: Aly loooooves making and designing clothes. She is actually quite good at it, too. However, finding materials and patterns is a challenge, but she is surprisingly efficient and capable of making due with very little. Need a hole sewn up? You got it. Have an idea for a fancy dress? Can do. Aly can do it all, provided she has the fabric and needle to do it.

Weaknesses

  • Strength: She's just really kind of pathetic when it comes to physical prowess, unfortunately. Immanuel did all the hunting and she's been hurtin' ever since he left. If she were to get in a fight, she'd probably curl up in a corner and cry. :'<
  • Gullible: She will believe mostly everything at face-value She is quite prone to being taken advantage of.

Summary

Alastar

image by Tom Blackwell (CC BY-NC 2.0)
  • Gender: Male
  • Species: Raven
  • Date of Birth: ~ 2014
  • Key Features: Alastar is an old bird; born in Salsola, he has seen much of the Thistle Kingdom's history. He was particularly sympathetic to Aly's plight as he had been observing and watching her for a majority of her enslavement, and he accompanied her when she finally managed to escape. While Alastar knows a small smattering of High Speech, his voice is very rough and rugged and heavily accented.
  • Description: Large for a raven, he has oily black wings with dark eyes to match. His curved beak has superficial scratches all along its surface.

Characters may assume:

  • Hearing him warbling or gurgling or making weird raven noises pretty much constantly
  • Seeing him either on Aly's shoulder (his regular perch) or atop buildings or in trees nearby
  • That he is more or less indifferent to luperci, but will not hesitate to raise hell if someone is bothering Aly

Kidd

  • Gender: Female
  • Species: Horse
  • Date of Birth: ~ 2010
  • Key Features: A slow-moving but sure-footed mare. Well-trained, but not necessarily friendly. Kidd tolerates a lot, and likes to be spoiled, but otherwise is ambivalent towards many luperci. She does, however, blatantly favor those who feed her.
  • Description: A stocky, flea-bitten gray horse. She's a little on the rounder side, and has a slight under-bite, giving her a pouty look. Her withers are starting to sag, though it's not terribly noticeable.

Characters may assume:

  • Seeing her with Solomon, who speaks some Low Speech with her :O
  • Occasionally seeing Aly try and make friends with her (and being kind of bad at it)
  • Observing that Kidd ignores a lot of luperci (aka you)
