The young female knew the origins of her birth, even if her mother's relatives had all tried to hide it from her. The Stormbringers had never meant to make the girl aware of her stigma, but there had always been something peculiar in the way they looked at her and her two littermates. It was far different than the loving, bemused glances that were directed toward other pups of her generation, especially once Kol's and Elliott's brood were born. No, the glances spared in her direction always had a barely veiled hint of contempt behind them, along with something else. The discomfort the eyes of her mother's pack had brought her would take time to unravel, but Bris eventually realized the emotion she couldn't place was fear. They were afraid of her, a pup, and that realization had sparked the desire in the dejected little female to find out why.
Amongst her Stormbringer relatives, there were four from whom neither fear nor contempt ever seemed to surface for the girl. Crow's silver eyes only seemed to show a smoldering wrath behind his affection for her, as if he was somehow angered by something having to do with her birth. Her mother, Draneia, loved her and her littermates unconditionally, but Bris would catch the tiniest hint of disgust when she'd suddenly show up to surprise her mother, her white coat glaring at her brightly. Draneia would recover almost instantly, but the pup never failed to feel the unintended rejection regardless. The other two with whom she felt the most comfortable were her half-siblings, Kol and Dreyrugr, and Kol's mate Elliott by default. It was Kol, in fact, who finally gave into the child and revealed the circumstances of her birth, and why she had no father to speak of.
The revelation that Bris' mother had not only been forced to bear children, but that the mating was carried out by a zealous member of the Stormbringers' arch enemies, the Dawnrunners, had horrified the pup. Kol had done what she could to comfort her, and Bris had promised not to let on that she knew the truth, but the knowledge had begun to eat the girl inside. The condemning glances and whispers seemed to grow louder and more intense, the young wolf's imagination lending the gestures more severity. She was the daughter of a demon; her very presence cursed the pack. It mattered little that her littermates bored the same taint, for she was the only one whose curse was broadcast by her very appearance. The most common coat color amongst the Stormbringers was a beautiful, sleek black. Most other colors were usually of some deep, dark shade. Bris' glaring white pelt stood out like a cursed moon amongst the shadows, making her the central focus of her family's derision.
Bris had made the decision long ago to run away as soon as she was sure she could survive on her own, and once her half-brother went missing, she recognized the opportunity. The pup used his disappearance as an excuse to slip away, telling her mother and Kol that she was going to follow his trail to Souls and find him. Kol had accompanied her over halfway, leaving the pup only when she was certain the girl knew the way. She'd even given the youngling a few names to search out upon her arrival, and told her exactly how to make her way straight to Dahlia de Mai. It hadn't taken long to find after that, and a brief, businesslike meeting with one of the leaders cemented her acceptance into the pack's ranks.
A month later came the first signs of her first change. Her body was restless, and her mind raced along with her heart. Bris knew what the symptoms meant, but she'd always assumed she'd have family around to coach her through the frightening transformation. Yet neither Kol nor anyone else had followed her to Dahlia after all, and after a week of fighting the urge to shift Bris became fearful and desperate. Fleeing the lands of Dahlia de Mai during the night, the young girl sought out her older brother not far from the combined lands of Souls.
Dreyrugr was able to guide his sister through the difficult experience of her first change, but she found she was reluctant to leave his company immediately. Knowing her absence from Dahlia would be noticed eventually, Bris allowed herself a period of two weeks to visit with her brother. Unfortunately for her, two weeks turned into three months before she realized it, and it was only the sudden appearance of her sister Kol's scent in the territories that made the girl realize she'd been away for far too long. Having two reasons now to return to the pack of flowers, Bris made her way back, her ears pulled back in apologetic shame. Only time would tell what this second chance with Dahlia would grant her.
Bris tends to be friendly and polite, an outgoing personality eager to prove herself and make friends. She looks for the good in everything and everyone and always seems to have an optimistic outlook.

4.3 Kol Stormbringer
Bris' relationship with her older sister was very close. Kol was one of the only Stormbringers to able to look past Bris' outward appearance of her father and as such became the young girl's closest confidante.
Bris is also very close to her older brother, second only to her relationship with Kol. He is extremely protective of her, and is a down-to-earth mentor to her despite his bad-boy tendencies.
Being in her adolescent stages, Bris has not yet come to display the grace and fluidity usually found amongst the females of the Stormbringer bloodline. Her somewhat diminutive stature hints at the eventual settling into such a build, though her legs are seemingly too long for her body in her current stage of growth. Small ears and a dainty muzzle lend to this allusion to her future beauty, while nobby joints and still-too-large paws are the bane of her existence.
Contrary to her Stormbringer build, Bris displays the dominant coat color found amongst their rivals: the Dawnrunners of her father's blood. Her silky fur is an ethereal silvery white all over, offset by the charcoal hue of her nose and pawpads. Her right eye is a deep and royal violet, her left is a vivid and bright cobalt blue.
Rarely seen in secui form; prefers either optime or lupus equally.
