Daughter between the late Rey Salvaje, Nazario del Bosque, and Palisade native Belinda Braithwaite, Calliandra has known little more than a life of affluence. Sent to her mother's birthplace and raised by her iron-fisted grandmother during her formative childhood, Calliandra's eagerness to embrace maturity and the expectation of grandieur ultimately helped to deepen the rift between herself and her brothers - and given her predilection towards severity, her burgeoning arrogance grew unchecked well into her adolescence. However, the impact of mortality and its resulting fallout immediately swept the rug out from under her. With the loss of her close friend and her father in quick succession, Calliandra thought herself finally capable and understanding of the weight of a crown. Her aunt, however, had other plans. (See OOC Assumptions)

Pack Member Assumptions

Del Cenerens may assume and reference the following without discussion/asking:

  • Peony Braithwaite seems to have snapped up Nazario's rank, influence, and even his home for herself! In the wake of this, she has seemingly kept a thumb fit snug over her niece (the likes of which Calliandra absolutely resents).
  • Quiet, reserved, and possessing a terrible rbf, Calliandra has a reputation for being prickly and her rather unapproachable demeanor. Conversations in passing with her are generally expected to be clipped and somewhat stiff - and at times blisteringly difficult to interpret.
  • In the wake of her father's death, Calliandra seems to have taken to menial tasks and chores with some seriousness. She can often be found taking stock, contributing small objects to stores, working with Del Cenere's horses, or tending her own animals. She can frequently be found checking in with Boots, Flintlock, or Alonso.
  • She may delegate small tasks to other Ashen. Most of the time these are inconsequential chores - if seeking something perhaps more intensive (or pointlessly arbitrary but on ~purpose~), please reach out to Despi for opportunities!

General Physical Appearance

A muddled coywolf hybrid - Her stature, size, and build lean heavily into her coyote heritage and the Braithwaite line; Her father's wolf blood, however, bleeds in with a slight broadness to her androgynous, wiry, and athletic body. She lacks fine lines and overt feminine curves for sharp lines and silhouettes, and is flat chested. Whilst Nazario's genetics are present in some of her agouti cape and the crescent swatches beneath her eyes, her desaturated tones, and predominantly grayscale coat is distinctly Braithwaite. Her facial features are emblematic of the prominent Palisade founders - with the trademark dark upper eye markings, almond-shaped purple eyes with foxlike features, Calliandra is the first in two generations to harken back to the family's Matriarch, Meredith's, appearance. It is highly likely that in time, like her great grandmother, she too will gray-out with age.

Emoting is not a particular strong suit - Calliandra generally carries a neutral and guarded outward expression.

Calliandra has a relatively high status of humanization - her long, raven hair is often loosely braided and accessorized conservatively with leather ties, glass beads, and feathers from her hawk. While she has an undeniable taste for fine things, her wardrobe is largely practical and ranges in style. There is a discomfort with her own nudity, to an extent: she associates a lack of dress with vulnerability, and takes great strides to avoid such connotations. She carries herself with a well-manicured and proud outward appearance without the need for excessive showmanship or peacocking. Whilst she's difficult to read for her true thoughts, emotion, or intention, she does seem to have a dislike for dresses in particular.

Defining Features


  • Lupus: 36 lbs (16 kg) — 24 in (61 cm)
  • Secui: 115 lbs (52 kg) — 37 in (94 cm)
  • Optime: 135 lbs (61 kg) — 5 ft 5 in (165 cm)

Numerous small superficial nicks or marks beneath her coat. Often sports temporary and well-cared from slip-ups due to poor handling of poi. She has calloused hands that speak to work ethic - and has a notable one on the last knuckle of her right ring finger indicative of a lateral quadrupod grasp developed from penmanship tutelage.

Other Identifiers

  • Scent: Del Cenere Gang, woodsmoke, cedar, palo santo, tobacco, black pepper
  • Body Language, Posture & Quirks: Stiff, abrupt, severe, and closed-off or contemplative. She is very static in her motions, and dreadfully attentive. Subdued with her body language, but undeniably intense.
  • Speech: Fluent in Common, and is conversationally fluent in Spanish, if limited. She is very concise in her speech, and at times derisive; Calliandra often tests others through poor or unclear instructions and opaque metaphors to justify her judgements.

Summary: Acrimonious, impassioned, captious, conceited, reticent

Calloused and unforgiving, Calliandra largely regards the world through a polarized lense of black and white, despite her associations and experiences with the various shades of gray imbetween. She has little patience, nor wiggle-room for alternatives which leads her to extreme conclusions; Calliandra is all, or nothing. This default, ultimately, is simpler, and leads to more concise and easy to digest answers, rather than attempting to dissect events, actions, and motivations for deeper meaning.

She is uncompromising and unbelievably stubborn to a fault, often putting her at odds with authority figures in her youth that she otherwise did not feel warranted her respect - the likes of which extended to her mother and aunt relatively early into her life; lofty expectations and critical regard have largely molded her into an unpleasant (and familiar) figure. She demands loyalty - fealty - of others; however, for all her capricious manner, hypocrisy, and mercurial moods, she is deeply loyal herself beneath layers of self-inflicted paranoia and wraps of protection to guard her deeply rooted insecurity in herself and others.

Trust is a difficult thing to come by, and always has been. Her wrath is often inflammatory, but with age has proven a crucible: The more Calliandra matures, the more she retreats into a largely impassive and seemingly unemotional shell; Her illegible exterior only seems to reflect her state when pushed to a limit, though whether threats beyond this are anything but empty promises has yet to really be seen. There's a reliance on her own unpredictability to ward others away from trying to work their way beneath her skin. She does, however, seem to delight in being able to affect others.

  • Demeanor: Aloof and cagey. Somewhat temperamental. Has a tendency to be difficult to interpret.
  • Outlook: A pessimistic pragmatist. Has a tendency to prepare for and expect poor outcomes.
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil with Neutral leanings
Shall follow the law, though believes herself and her word to be thus, and may bend it to her whim.
Shall avenge her peers and her society by whatever methods she deems fit.
Obeys all personal contracts and values lifelong commitments in others.
Considers public service in a leadership role an honor.
Honors and seeks unlimited control and order, and follows lawful procedure without regard to her own discomfort.
  • Motivations: Control and order, preservation of her society, reprisal
  • Fears: Subjugation, failure, intimacy, vulnerability
  • Likes: Del Cenere Gang, writing, horsemanship, birds of prey, loon song and summer nights
  • Dislikes: Being wrong, chaos, feeling helpless or out of control of circumstances, feeling overwhelmed
  • Anti-Wolf: Grew up with the cultural persuasions of Del Cenere, though this bias has worsened with age. While not as extreme as her father's hatred, the trauma of her friend's murder has instilled a very strong fear in her - especially around large males. Wolves are unpredictable, at best, and are to be regarded with suspicion.
  • Outsiders: Suspect and dangerous, Calliandra's approach to outsiders is a delicate balance. She does not care for them, has a tendency to think them all capable of violence and seeking self-interest, but they bring the Gang prosperity with trade ventures. She tolerates them at best, though places herself and her peers above them.
Sexuality & Gender
  • Sexuality: Has a largely impassive approach to attraction. Remarkably dense (unfortunately like her father), her wariness of others and fear of intimacy often inhibits any form of closeness to others. She feels a strong need to develop trust before ever exploring such a vulnerable option.
  • Gender: Holds some baser belief that women will utilize wiles to manipulate men for personal gain. As such, she does have a slight bias towards men being somewhat weaker-willed to the so-called "fairer sex".
Spirituality and Substances
  • Spirituality: Loose attachment to Cenizan cultures via her father - Fire is a purifying force.
  • Substances: Rarely indulges in much of anything for how it affects the mind.

  • Description:

An exemplary animal, Circe is a large, well-balanced and proportioned red-tailed hawk with dark-morph plumage. Her feathers are chocolate and rust, with heavy barring. She lacks the stereotypical pale points on the ventral side of her body, and richly colored feathers along her legs. The dorsal side of her flight feathers are near-charcoal. Her eyes are the stereotypical rich brown, and somewhat deeper in tone.

  • Personality:

Proud and no-nonsense, much like her handler. Circe is keenly intelligent and well trained, when she is being cooperative - Unfortunately, she has a tendency towards recalcitrance, and will resort to biting or wing-boxing when she's annoyed. Circe possesses some capabilities of high-speech, though seems to prefer to remain silent unless pressed to speak - to which she offers stilted, clipped, and short phrases or condemnations to whomever she is addressing. Much like Calliandra, it is difficult to get a bead on her assessment of an individual - though, she is more liable to be chatty (if rude) towards people she likes.

No Use
Experienced Handlers
Rider Trained
Pull Trained

  • Description:

A well-bred, strong animal. Riselka possesses rather unique white, ticked markings thanks to her Sabino genes, with a sprawling apron face marking, and lip mark that comically looks adjacent to a moustache - in addition to these, she has a duo of dark bend-or spots, one on her right hip, and the other on the left side of the crest of her neck. Her hooves are pale, though the rear right one has a single dark bar. Her tail is two-toned with a black base with minor frosting, and a white tip.

  • Personality:

Temperamental and spirited. She can be nippy, mischievous and willful. Riselka can be difficult to handle if spooked, and it's ill-advised that inexperienced riders try to interact with her thanks to her territorial and at times irritable nature.

Skills and Use Notes

    • Nazario administered riding training - she is a very capable mount, if... quirky in some of her mannerisms
    • Excels with reigning work, cutting, or otherwise engaging with livestock
