Azalea Eternity is a wolfdog and member of Salsola, where she was born.
The daughter of Idrieus and Grievous Eternity, Azalea is a member of an affluent household. She is the oldest of triplets and her parents' first born,
preceding Lilium and Whisper. In January of 2021 she underwent the Cueponi ceremony   and was promoted to The Family.

A true piebald, Azalea has a sweeping white portion of her fur that covers the left side of her face. She otherwise strongly resembles a domestic dog in terms of her pelt color. Her D'Angelo heritage is most apparent, as Azalea is the largest and overall darkest of her siblings, and the only one with green eyes. In her Optime form she has extremely curly hair, with one strand being much lighter than the rest (see avatar by Nat), like her mom.
Build, Size, and Forms:
Azalea is the largest of her siblings, and will grow to become nearly as large as her father.
TL;DR: Charming, smart, and adventurous, she is quick to get herself into and out of trouble.
Azalea is an adventurous puppy, unafraid to ask questions and explore boundaries. She's driven by a fierce intellect, making her incredibly curious about the world around her and the beings in it. This may lead to her asking questions that some may believe inappropriate. Fortunately, it's hard to stay mad at her because she's just so darn charming! Quick to smile and compliment, she exudes a happy energy and innocence that just washes over everyone around her, putting them at ease. She has a dominant personality type, and she's generally the boss of the group, even unofficially. If the position hasn't been taken by someone of a higher rank than her, she will fill it easily with her confidence and imagination. She doesn't mind bossing others around and can usually do so without generating bad feelings, and most of the time people are happy to take instruction, because she's a good boss! She compliments and criticizes where necessary, and pushes when people need pushing. Something about her, perhaps it's the confident way she holds herself or the way she speaks, makes others trust, adore, and believe in her. She's an extrovert, enjoying being in the thick of things and being looked to for ideas and instruction. And, though she is highly intuitive, she's very smart about the things she does. Though she can get carried away, in general a great deal of thought goes into every decision she makes.
Optimistic and Energetic: Azalea is usually up to her elbows in some project or other. Cheerful and good-natured, she rarely gets stressed out, preferring to go with the flow.
Creative and Practical: Azalea is very imaginative when it comes to practical things, mechanics, and crafts. Novel ideas come easily, and she loves using hands hands to put these ideas into action.
Spontaneous and Rational: Combining spontaneity with logic, Azalea can switch mindsets to fit new situations with little effort, making her flexible and versatile.
Know How to Prioritize: This flexibility comes with some unpredictability, but she is able to store her spontaneity for a rainy day, releasing her energy just when it’s needed most.
Great in a Crisis: With all this hands-on creativity and spontaneity, Azalea is a natural in crisis situations. She actually enjoys a little physical risk, and isn't afraid to get her hands dirty when the situation calls for it.
Self-Confident: Azalea is very sure of herself. She isn't one to stress over first impressions or public opinion, she knows who she is and that's good enough for her.
Relaxed: Through all this, Azalea is able to stay quite relaxed. She lives in the moment and goes with the flow, refusing to worry too much about the future.
Strong Willed: When told not to do something, she often finds herself stubbornly doing it anyway, just to prove a point. She isn't one for rules, at least, not when she disagrees with said rules.
Strategic Thinker: She plays the long game. She can look past immediate gratification and see the big picture, a rare and valuable trait. She will examine a problem from every angle before moving forward.
Charismatic and Inspiring: She knows exactly what to say and when to say it, she knows herself and generally has a good idea of what others think of her.
Stubborn and Dominant: Sometimes all the aforementioned confidence and strength of will can get to be too much, and Azalea will dig in her heels, determined to do things her way, and only her way, even if that isn't the best way. As easily as she will go with the flow, she can also ignore it entirely, and usually move in another direction with little apology or sensitivity. If someone tries to change her habits, lifestyle or ideas through criticism, she can become quite blunt in her irritation.
Impatient: Azalea is incredibly quick thinking, witty, and hard working. Sometimes others just can't catch up fast enough, and that frustrates her to no end.
Insensitive: Azalea uses logic, and even when she tries to meet others halfway with empathy and emotional sensitivity, it rarely seems to quite come out right, if anything is even said at all.
Intolerant: Azalea isn't one to sacrifice her own ideas for others, especially if the other person's idea is based on an emotional factor.
Easily Bored: Azalea enjoys novelty, which makes her an excellent tinkerer, but much less reliable when it comes to focusing on things long-term. Once something is understood, she tend to simply move on to something new and more interesting.
Dislike Commitment: Long-term commitments are particularly onerous for Azalea. She prefers to take things day-by-day, and the feeling of being locked into something for a long time is downright oppressive.
Risky Behavior: This stubbornness, difficulty with others’ emotions, focus on the moment, and easy boredom can lead to unnecessary and unhelpful boundary-pushing, just for fun. She has been known to escalate conflict and danger just to see where it goes, something that can have disastrous consequences for everyone around her (and herself) if she loses control of the situation.

Azalea has a deep respect and love for her mother, Idrieus Eternity. Though she is strict and unyielding, Idrieus is also caring and concerned for her daughters, which Azalea can see, even if her mother doesn't show it very well. Because of this, Azalea strives to prove herself to her, a feeling that will only grow stronger as Azalea ages, until she comes to term with her own abilities.
Azalea loves her father a lot, especially since he's the doting caregiver. Grievous Eternity has always been the one to turn a blind eye to shenanigans, of which there were many, and he was always quick to give love and affection. This balanced out her mother's stoic nature nicely, and Azalea is grateful for it. She knows that she can always rely on her dad for support, even if she was the one in the wrong.
Siblings: Azalea and her sisters are peas in a pod, and suit each other well. Azalea loves getting mischievous with Whisper Eternity, and then dragging poor Lilium Eternity along with them. Fortunately, Lilium can often act as the Voice of Reason, slamming on the brakes when things get out of hand. As the three of them grow up, they're just going to grow even closer.
A stretch of ruins attached to the western side of the Throne Room, but a small gap between living spaces. The wing in one story, save for the tower at the western end. The doorway at the western end of the residence leads to the main hallway of the wing, and although the tower is also attached to this hallway, there is another wall and door separating it off from the rest of the wing. The main wing is separated into spare rooms, most of which are taken up by Salsola's collection of books, all organized and looked after by Idrieus and her aids. One of these rooms is Grievous' personal room, a room where he is usually growing his own plants. The tower is two floors, with the first floor being Idrieus and Grievous' living space and the second floor being their bedroom. Outside of the tower, there is a small pasture for the horses to free roam in. There is a small separate storage building for their equipment and other storage items.
Not all of the items that Azalea owns are listed, only the ones that are referenced often or have some special significance to her.
Three Hand-Stitched Toys: Gifted to Azalea anonymously by Silas del Morte, there is one of a bear, a wolf, and a rabbit. Each toy is hand stitched with pieces of leather and fur, and tiny black beads for eyes. They are stuffed with material to account for claws and teeth. They were delivered via the Yuletide Yak, and were wrapped so: "There is a set of three toys bundled together with papers covered in charcoal drawings. All of these are bundled together in a simple fur, the papers folded as to not crumble too much in travel. The drawings are simple and only one color. There are a few drawings of Azalea herself, most with her family. There are a couple pictures with some attempted shading to show the night sky filled with stars. There are some lines between stars of fake constellations." Azalea really loves the toys, and though she will grow up and stop playing with them, she will keep them close and they will always remind her of home.
