Brandy appears dainty and slight in frame. She is predominantly legs and muscles, not disproportionately, but it shows more due to a sleeker coat. She has a thicker mane than most, reminiscent of her curly hair in Optime form. Her features are sharp, almost pointed and her muzzle is slightly tapered and less broad than that of a female. She has a long sweep of a cloud for a tail, complimenting her supple form.
In Secui form, Brandy is almost indistinguishable from her Lupus form. Her body bulks up, giving her a more puissant frame, and her muscles emphasized and brawny. Her legs are still considerable, though appear less under the thicker, longer coat of fur. She still keeps her auburn markings, however, the hue becomes a lot more visible, and extends for longer down her spine and also along her shoulders.
Brandy still possesses her long legs and sleeker coat. She has a sculpted frame, toned muscles and is well-endowed at the chest. Her thick mane gives way to long curls that fall softly midway down her back. They cling around her face, emphasizing her distinctive features. She maintains good posture in this form, giving the illusion she is much taller than in truth.

Brandy Mae is country at heart. She is mild-mannered, polite and easy-going. She doesn't tolerate foolishness, and is not afraid to tell things as they are. Some would call her stubborn, but she simply trusts in her convictions and stands by them no matter what.
She is a very intelligent creature, though can sometimes be seen as naive due to her kind-heartedness. She always seeks to learn new things, and improve the knowledge she already has. She has a knack for managing difficult situations, and can formulate decisions relatively quickly when required. She is a listener above all, always willing to lend an ear to those around her.
She has respect for others, but doesn't allow them to take advantage of her. When it comes to the opposite sex, she is sweet, sensitive and self-sacrificing. But she also demands loyalty and respect, otherwise she feels trapped and constricted, and will seek to end the relationship.
In a nutshell, Brandy is bubbly, bright, strong-willing, and down-to-earth. She is kind, warm-hearted, and generous. She has a good sense of humor and is full of fun. She is adventurous by nature, and she loves to goof around and play.
She will often give to others and not expect anything in return, and is a firm believer in giving others the benefit of the doubt. She tries not to take things too seriously if she can, as she believes life is just too short for negativity. She will often sing to herself or to others to try and make the world a little brighter. She is a hopeless romantic.
Likes: Nature, good conversation, exploring, watching the sunrise/sunset, stargazing, deep conversations, singing, walking in the rain, romance, play fighting, meeting and making new friends, helping others, playing guitar, learning and studying new things
Dislikes: Hatefulness, obnoxiousness, fighting, arguments, sexism, racism, killing without necessity, disrespect, anger, liars, hypocrites, mistrust, being walked over, being misled, being alone
Rape, torture, death, losing her sight, losing her ability to play guitar, being a failure or disappointment, letting others down, bringing disrespect to her family, never finding love or a home to call her own
Gender: More comfortable around men due to her upbringing, but is polite to all regardless.
Age: Huge soft spot for puppies.
Species: Slightly more relaxed around wolves, due to knowing more about them, but will not discriminate. She is kind to all.
Quirks, Etc.: Flicking her tongue against her teeth when thinking, fiddling with her dress hem, always smiling
General Posture and Body Language: Brandy possesses a strongly humanized posture. She always keeps her back straight, giving the illusion of added height to her frame. Her body language is very extroverted, excitable and unknowingly flirtatious.
Brandy will always wear her sprout-green dress
She will more than likely have with her all her accessories.
Any unclaimed territory
Sleeps wherever she is at the time
Generally sleeps under trees or by the sea
Singing: Brandy best skill is with her voice. She possesses a wide vocal range, and sounds something like this. She can often be found humming or singing to herself, coming up with lyrics to turn into full songs with her guitar.
Playing guitar: Given to her by her father, she taught herself at an early age. She is an experienced guitar player, though strives to get better through practicing every day. Her guitar would sound something like this.
Sewing: She can sew almost anything from bandages to clothing, having made her own dress from scratch. She would like to get better, but is yet to find a way to trade with others for the materials.
Reading/writing: Brandy’s father taught her to read and write early on in her life. Though she doesn’t use it often, as not possessing any books or writing materials, she would like to one day write all her songs down in a book so others could learn them too.
Survivalist: Brandy has good knowledge of growing crops, fishing, foraging and hunting. Her father always believed in teaching her how to survive on her own, especially because of Brandy’s curious nature. She can make fires with ease, make basic weaponry from flora around her, and is good at making traps to catch fish and small prey. Most of the time, however, she’ll generally just hunt with tooth and claw. She is a good tracker, and can smell water from a mile away (if the wind is in her favour). She has basic first aid knowledge.
Social Naivety: Brandy is quick to trust. She believes that if everyone is treated well, they’ll treat her well back. She doesn’t believe in pure evil, and feels that if bad things happen, it’s generally her fault for one reason or another. She always gives second chances, even when she shouldn’t, and is bound to get hurt severely one of these days.
Fighting: Her fighting skills are poor. Though she got taught the basics in her younger years, having never been in one, she is very rusty. If she ever were faced with conflict, she would try to resolve it peacefully, and if that didn’t work, well… she would get her ass kicked.
Archery: Brandy believes that learning archery will improve her survivalist skill set.
General Defence: She isn’t greatly skilled in a fight, thus improving her fighter skills would benefit her greatly.
Horsemanship: Though a cowgirl, Brandy never had the chance to properly work with horses when she was younger. She would love to improve her riding skills, and also learn how to care and capture them.
Wrangling: She has always been interested in wrangling. From watching all the country boys back home, she has a basic understanding of it, but has never tried. She would love to have her own lasso, instead of always relying on having to lay traps.
Leatherwork: Even since her father made her customised boots, she has always aspired to learn leatherwork herself. She is always on the lookout for books on the skill, or others who possess it. She would love to be taken as an apprentice under this skill.

Brandy Mae was born and raised in Harlan, Kentucky by her father. Her mother vanished with Brandy's brother after giving birth to him. She never met her brother, and doesn’t know of his existence. As far as Brandy knows, her mother is dead.
During her younger years, her father raised her well. She has the traditional southern belle mannerisms, but also has a very masculine streak. She was taught that even though being a lady was important, surviving was more important. They traveled a lot, selling her father’s leather-work and working for others to make ends meet.
When her father got cancer, she provided for him, expanding on her hunting skills and first aid to try and make him comfortable. It was during his final days that he gave Brandy her possessions (hat, boots and guitar) and told her to explore the world and live life. When he finally passed, Brandy didn't hesitate to take his advice and leave the small town behind.
Over time, she traveled to a variety of different locations, improving her skills and trying to spread kindness wherever she went. It was during this time that one stranger attacked her for no reason, other than he didn’t like the sound of her guitar, leaving a burn on her inner thigh. To hide the disfigurement, Brandy stumbled across a tattooist and got it covered with a small heart.
She came over to Nova Scotia via boat, trading her skills for passage. She cooked and fished for the crew, and often sang for them with her guitar.
She has no current place of settlement, though is eager to explore and find somewhere permanent.
