Battalion

Battalion

About

Battalion is an anxious, paranoid critter born to a pack that believed shifting was an abomination to nature. They chased her away and she was then further raised by an opportunistic trading band that used her for an extra pair of hands and kept her alive, but not much else. She has feelings about this.

She is currently a Commoner of New Caledonia.

Physical Appearance

Basics

The most notable thing about her appearance is her ears, which are longer than would be average for a wolf of her stature. They probably don't stand out as much to others as they do to her, but nonetheless they are a differentiating feature.

Her fur is primarily a dark brown with a countershaded almost-black brown across her back, ears, and a mask around her eyes/muzzle. Bat's eyes are a piercing blue, which does stand out well against the darkness of her coat.

She is slightly below average in stature and emphasizes that by generally trying to go without notice. Bat doesn't normally stand tall and announce herself. Instead, she shrinks inward and shows submissive gestures. Her posture in her Optime form when she is around others is particularly abysmal. She tends to be slumped with her head canted to the side so she can more easily look at the ground.

In her Optime form, she dresses casually if at all and keeps her hair loose unless she is working. Then she will often tie it back more to avoid the nuisance of her mane in her hair than anything else. Most of the time she will have a belt with a simple dagger on it, as well as a recurve bow and quiver with a smattering of arrows. Bat also owns a backpack which is where she stores what clothes she does possess and any other items she is currently carrying with her. This might not always be with her, though, as she often hides it when she doesn't need anything out of it during a particular venture. She is not highly humanized, prioritizing the practical over the aesthetic.

Lupus

- lbs (- kg)
- in (- cm)
Bat is very comfortable in this form and uses it almost as often as her Optime form. She primarily is in this form if she is hunting or moving long distances but doesn't need to carry anything. Also prefers sleeping in it.

Secui


- lbs (- kg)
- in (- cm)
Her least preferred form. She does occasionally use it if she has a specific need for this form, but she does her best to avoid it. If there was one form in which she felt the most like an "abomination" as her family raised her to believe, it is this one. It makes her feel weird and she doesn't like to use it.

Optime


- lbs (- kg)
- ft - in (- in / - cm)


Personality

Overview

 by somebody, probably

Bat is an anxious creature at her core. As she became the very thing her parents loathed at a very young age, she has low self-esteem and often second guesses herself. She is eager to prove herself as useful, a trait encouraged by both her parents and the traders that eventually raised her to adulthood. Though she has been trying to break this cycle of self-hatred and reliance upon others for confidence, it creeps into her behavior still.

Bat is fairly logic-based when she is comfortable, preferring to avoid letting her emotions lead her whenever possible. She also doesn't like to be around others who are overly boisterous or emotional in general. She tends to be withdrawn even in the best of circumstances, but in a group with a lot of talking she is likely to be silent and observing. Being introverted, Bat prefers her own company over the company of others.

She is curious and most at home in nature rather than anywhere with walls. In fact, walled in areas tend to make her claustrophobic and more anxious than usual. Bat enjoys learning new things and has a quick mind for learning new physical tasks. In general, she prefers physical action to mental work as she is not well-versed in strategy or coercion. Though she hasn't had much opportunity to try and is fairly adaptable; a lot of who she could be without the restrictions of those who raised her is still very up in the air, as she has only been free from that for a short time.

  • Species: --
  • Non-Luperci: Sees them as equal to Luperci.
  • Gender: --
  • Color: --
  • Sexuality: --
  • Age: --

Sexuality

Pansexual. Has found both males and females attractive.

Motivations

Survival and making a home for herself.

Spirituality

She is an absolutely confused little beast when it comes to spirituality. Bat was raised to believe that shifting was an abomination, which felt fine when she was little and thought herself "pure" like her mother. When she changed for the first time, she felt like someone cast out through sin. However, as she has grown up more around Luperci, she doesn't think they are that much different from non-Luperci in their behaviors or personalities. Nor does she consider shifting sinful. Part of her longs for the easy belief of her youth in a higher power and a set of moral rules, but she has not established deep feelings about it.


Skills

Strengths

  • Hunting: She is a proficient hunter, as it was her primary "job" in her trading band and the thing she was able to do most often. Mostly this is hunting either in Lupus form or with a bow. She is also skilled at processing dead animals, either ones that she has hunted or ones she has found.
  • Tanning: Battalion enjoys the entire process of tanning, despite how gross some might find it.
  • Archery: Taleon is a skilled marksman.

Weaknesses

  • Subterfuge: she is not a skilled liar and would be a terrible spy.
  • Horses: she's kind of afraid of horses and doesn't do well with them.


Familial Relationships

Family

  • Mother: Snowflake
  • Father: River
  • Older Siblings: Mist, Oak, Loam, Sunset, Lilac
  • Littermates: Polliwog, Amble, Maple
  • Extended:

Italics indicates an unknown relationship; they may be offboard or the relation is merely uncertain.
* indicates character does not know this person by name.

 

  • Parents:
    • Her feelings on her parents are... complicated. When she was younger, she hated them for essentially leaving her to die. However, she still has fuzzy fond memories of the times spent together before she first shifted. Mostly she avoids thinking about them at all.
  • Siblings:
    • When she thinks of her siblings, it is mostly with pain and concern for what happened to them. She assumes her littermates also shifted, though she isn't sure because she still isn't certain how she became a Luperci in the first place. From what she has learned, she assumes her entire litter had to be Luperci? Some part of her still wonders if she was, in fact, cursed and they're still contentedly living with her family pretending she doesn't exist... Since she hasn't seen her siblings in so long, she mostly just feels a childhood fondness and a vague hope that they are well wherever they are.

Other Relations

Key

  • Odysseus is one of her best friends. They bonded over being chased by a mama bear defending her cub and have since met up several times, including at the Stockshow.
  • Lossë Fir-Chlis is the first person she found herself romantically attracted to. She still has a bit of a crush on him and he's teaching her to read; she'd consider him a good friend and a vital part of her life.

Notable

  • Liam del Morte was the wolf that convinced her to join New Caledonia. She'll always consider him a friend for that reason.

Minor Relations

  • Enemies:
  • Murders:
  • Significant Negative Acquaintances: Hokori Tanaka

Profile

  • Name: Skunk
  • Gender: Buck
  • Species: Goat (Valais Blackneck/Alpine cross)
  • D.O.B.: 2022

Summary

  • Appearance: A well muscled goat who is mostly black with white "stockings", a couple of splotches, and face/beard. He also has an adorable pink nose. Slightly less adorable are his long curved horns.
  • Personality: Skunk is quite dramatic. He's playful, but fussy. He likes his needs tended to quickly and with a purpose. If they aren't, he makes sure that anyone around him knows it by nipping and headbutting. Nor is he very particular about where or how he chomps down, so generally Bat recommends being especially careful with valuables around him.
  • Skills: He's really good at throwing tantrums. A+ tantrum thrower.
