Balti Ha'Lahria

by Dark

Balti is a well-trained hunter from Maines. After discovering how her mother's partner had been tarnishing their good family name, Balti decided to forge her own path on her own and find her purpose somewhere else. Having heard about the Cavalier pack in her travels, Balti's interest was piqued and she made her way to discover what they had to offer her.

1.  Appearance

  • In her tipped ears and the inclination to her Molosser lineage that shapes her muzzle and build, Balti is mostly doggish in appearance. Taller legs and more angular features are gifts from her wolf ancestors. Her arms are more muscular than her legs, though the fluff there might make it appear otherwise, and she's relatively slender in the rest of her build. She's fairly flat chested, narrow in the waist and her hips are prominent. Black locks are wild and free, running just barely over shoulders. She keeps her hair mostly parted in the back, to make quick work of putting her hood up. Pastel Seafoam eyes are alert and watching in a mask of sandy hue, painted with threads of chocolate and white. Her muzzle, as well as the most of her body, is black, and her paws are white, rising into a sandy shade at the joints.
Optime: 6 ft 2 in (188 cm) ↔ 175 lbs (79 kg)
  • Scars:
    • Balti's hands are marked with frequent cuts from using her bow
  • Tattoos & Piercings:
    • None

Clothing & Accessories

  • Humanization: High
  • Clothing & Accessories: Her outfit is made of linen and dear-hide leather, purposefully kept in earthy shades. A thin, cape styled, over-shirt hangs sleeveless on her shoulders with a piled hood that is left down when she is not out of the pack lands or on hunt. A dark brown, leather cinch wraps center, and is fastened with pale cord stitching that holds a tan, deer-hide skirt to her waist. A sash hands from her stomach and dangles beyond her knees that bleeds into a olive dye that matches her cape. Her shirt is simply a fabric wrapped halter, and two sets of chains dangle from her form. One around her neck, a gift from her mother that never leaves her body, and the other, a larger chain from her first broken hunting trap. The larger chain is fastened at the back of her cinch, and her tail protrudes from a gap left in her skirt right below the cinch.

2.  History

Born in Maine, she was destined for the family business. Those hungry for good meats and well-kept hides flocked to her family's shop to get a taste from her mother's goods, or furs and hides for the coming winters. Balti absorbed everything she knew from her mother's diligent and talented hands, wanting only to help. Time went on as their endeavor grew more wealthy, to the point where they could offer meat and clothing to the ill and injured. This impressed an important lesson on Balti in her youngest years, but as the months turned on, she could see the loneliness in her mother's eye. A man entered their life and her mother was smitten, but Balti wasn't so sure. This new love-interest of her mother's was distracting her from their work, which was of extreme importance to the young wolfdog. Less and less her mother went hunting with Balti, and more often the man bayed her mother to stay home and built a nest for them. Frustrated with it, she couldn't help but look deeper into this man's history. Her snooping didn't go unnoticed, and almost overnight his attitude changed. He wanted to be a part of the family business as well, and as long as he was working and her mother loved him, Balti wasn't going to stir the pot. Months moved on as the trade routes they often used were beginning to come up short of customers ,even despite their increased supply. In order to figure out what had happened in the neighboring packland, Balti left with her mother's blessing. There, she was met with sour faces and old friends that spat as she passed. It didn't take long for someone to answer her questions, after a little bit of asking around. She found that her mother's lover had rose to becoming a successful hunter from poaching animals from an adjacent pack's farmland. Balti returned home that evening with the bad news. Her mother, however, couldn't believe that she'd made up such stories. The man that stole her mother's heart, simply smiled from behind her mother's angry eyes. Before the sun had risen the next morning, Balti was gone. It was time to make a new life for herself and the stories of the Cavalier pack, spoken throughout the broken remnants of Freetown, seemed just the place to do so.

3.  Personality

  • Outlook: Realistic
  • Sociability: Introverted
  • Expression: Dominant
  • Alignment: Lawful Good


  • Balti is a tenacious woman, sound in purpose and driven. Not super talkative, her words come with worth and purpose. She is not outspoken, unless the situation calls for it, and while often reticent, she is not shy. While she is strong-willed, she isn't prone to conflicts with authority, unless she is given duties that go heavily against her morals. Feed the hungry, shelter the cold, and teach the needing are all her motivations. She wouldn't leave an ally behind and to kill in defense is a last resort. The goodness that is in her, however, is not in everyone. Though she is giving, earning her trust is a feat, and once attained, it can be broken easily. While she aims to teach others, she gets fixated on self-sufficiency, and may forget at times that even she has things to learn.
    • Likes: Hunting, trading, fighting for a cause
    • Dislikes: Cheating, laziness

4.  Skills

  • Hunting (Expert)
Spending her life running the family business of hunting and trading, Balti is a fairly skilled huntress, perfecting her skills when hunting for Casa. She's confident on her own however has grown used to pack hunts, often willing to take a leading role when hunting with those less experienced.
  • Trading (Journeyman)
Learning from her family about the ins and outs of trade, Balti knows the basics of making good deals when it comes to trading stock, always happy to advise others on how to get a good deal whilst taking a step back from trading herself.
  • Butchery (Apprentice)
Deciding to work more on how to butcher food in order to get the most out of the pack's stock, Balti wishes to quietly take over the responsibility left behind by Isaac after he died. Not yet comfortable in owning a shop, Balti works more on her own, often having hunt brought to her by those who know what she can do.
