Colter Braithwaite

Colter Braithwaite


Handsome younger brother to the Bella Dama Peony Braithwaite, Colter finally followed in his sisters' and brother's pawsteps and left home, joining up with them in the Del Cenere Gang. He has been there for around three months, striving to carve out his own path in the Gang as best be can without following his siblings too closely. When outside Charmingtown, Colter can be seen with his horse companion Little Miss, who calms Colt's nervous fidgeting and paranoid thoughts.

OOC Information

OOC Assumptions

Del Cenere Gang members may assume and reference the following without discussion/asking:

  • Seeing Colter...
    • ... around with his horse, Little Miss!
    • ... interacting with his siblings!
    • ... fidgeting with his hands!




Colter is of average stature, although his thin frame and willowy limbs suggest he is much taller than he is. He takes more after his sisters than his brother, standing at a modest 6'1" while in Optime form.

His fur is plush and thick, double-coated, with a light gray agouti pattern. He is pale and handsome, with the typical chiseled coyote face, large ears, and almond-shaped eyes in a deep purple hue. His nose and pawpads are a medium brown. His hair, while in Optime form, is nearly white and relatively short and wavy. He doesn't particularly style it in any manner, merely keeps it cut to a length he likes. Otherwise, he "styles" it by running his fingers through the locks.

Colter is very humanized, and has hardly shifted out of his Optime form since he first shifted. While his Lupus form may be better for long distance traveling, he finds his more basal forms to be beneath him, so to speak. While in Optime form, he is typically found wearing a loose buttoned shirt, brown trousers, and suspenders. He may also have a satchel slung over his sharp shoulders to carry some of his belongings. Colt keeps himself clean, but isn't afraid of getting dirty. As long as he's able to wash off sometimes with some simple soap, he's alright.

Colt's main scents are Braithwaite, coyote, and horse, with hints of wildflower soap.

  • Speech: A lilting deep tenor, with a light Southern accent.
  • Scent: Braithwaite, coyote, horses, faint tobacco, wildflower soap.
  • Quirks, Gestures, Etc.: Constantly fidgeting in some way, usually with his hands, sometimes with his tail or ears.
  • General Posture and Body Language: Generally confident, save for his awkward hands. Tail is held erect and confidently, and his gait is long and quick.

Colter is a relaxed, kind, easy-going least, outwardly. He struggles a lot with inward anxiety to the point of paranoia, which he fights to keep down. His hands fidget near-constantly, twitching, worried, yet his smile remains easy and charming. If it's not his hands, it's his ears or tail. Colt can be a bit distant if he's stuck in his worries but Colt is much more of a "people person" than his littermate Bennett. He dotes on and looks up to his older sisters but is stuck between what the family wants from him and his desire to see more of the world, like Belinda. Colt is a deeply closeted bisexual, something he discovered when he was a teen, and it clashes horribly with his heavily religious upbringing.

Colter is Chaotic Good. Colt cares deeply about other people and has a desire to do some good in the world, but his generally fun-loving, carefree nature conflicts with his more structured upbringing. Outwardly, Colter is polite, kind, and gentle, with a confident gait that hides the nervous fidgeting of his slender hands.

Colt is naturally charming and handsome and has had a share of secret flings, including those with other males. He has a fairly high libido and is absolutely terrified of what will happen if his dirty secret comes out. Colter also experiments with tobacco and marijuana.


  • Charismatic
  • Friendly
  • Kind
  • Laid-back
  • Quick to smile


  • Obsessive
  • Paranoid
  • Fidgety
  • Biased
  • Quick to violence



  • Emotional Disposition: Paranoid, a nervous wreck.
  • Sociability: Confident, personable, and friendly.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
    • A chaotic good character acts as his conscience directs him with little regard for what others expect of him. He makes his own way, but he's kind and benevolent. He believes in goodness and right but has little use for laws and regulations. He hates it when people try to intimidate others and tell them what to do. He follows his own moral compass, which, although good, may not agree with that of society.
      • ...are strong individualists marked by a streak of kindness and benevolence.
      • ...have no use for people who "try to push folk around and tell them what to do."
      • ...will keep his word to those who are not evil and will lie only to evil-doers.
      • ...will never attack an unarmed foe and will never harm an innocent.
      • ...will never kill for pleasure, only in self-defense or in the defense of others.
  • Tropes: Gay Cowboy, Nervous Wreck, Beware the Nice Ones, The Paranoiac


  • Packs: The Gang is the best, obviously! No strong opinions on the other packs.
  • Species: Wolves...are weird and scary.
  • Non-Luperci: Eh, they're living their life, but why wouldn't anyone want hands?
  • Gender: Men are naturally stronger than women!
  • Color: No opinion.
  • Sexuality: Heterosexuality is the only correct way. (He's SO deep in the closet...)
  • Age: Pups are wonderful, and elders have a lot of wisdom.


Colter is bisexual, something he became aware of when he was younger, romping around Palisade with his siblings. He hates himself for it, and is biased towards straight relationships...yet he can't hide his attraction to other men. He can be quite promiscuous, and craves sexual relations, but is desperate to conceal the fact that he's been having relations with members of either sex. What would Grandma Meredith think, or his parents? Or Peony?!


Colter adores his family, and strives to make them proud. He is also driven by his own love for life, and wants to experience everything he possibly can. He is, perhaps, a bit influenced by his older sister Belinda.


Colter was raised a devout Christian, and believes fully in a (mostly) benevolent God. He prays frequently, and makes sure to thank the Lord for every meal and successful hunting trip.

Animal Handling (Apprentice)

Del Cenere Gang

Duration: 02 January 2022 – Present

Like his littermates Bennett, Bernadette, and Florene, Colter had an easy childhood. He doesn't remember much of it, just that it was nothing of note. That is, until the deaths of the Del Mars. Sheltered and naive, this was the first time Colt had been exposed to such tragedy. It weathered him, aged him. If the Del Mars could be killed...could [i]his[/i] family?

Colter's anxiety and paranoia started around this time. Eager to keep up appearances, he rarely talked about it, choosing to suffer silently instead. He wanted to be a prodigy just like his sister Peony. Perhaps it was his nervous mental state, perhaps it was fate, but Colt shifted early at around 5-and-a-half months. He was promptly given a bow, as was customary in the family, and began his training.

His shaking hands made his training much harder. It was good that he had the extra time, for when Bennett shifted late, the pale brother soon surpassed Colter in skill. Colt fought to keep up, finally earning proficiency with the bow and arrow around the time of his first birthday. It was obvious that Colt struggled. In an effort to boost his confidence, Grandmother Meredith gifted him with a horse, a two-year old mare that he named Little Miss. She was somewhat trained, and Colt was tasked with taking over the rest of her training.

Much like his brother, he found a deep love for the four-legged animals, developing a passion for horses that rivaled nothing else in his life. Being around them helped with his anxiety, and he often spent time in the stables tending to them late into the night. Little Miss became his constant companion, and Colt even picked up a bit of Low Speech in order to communicate with her better.

All the while, the family received letters and correspondence from the older sisters up north. Colter was enraptured with Peony and Belinda and their escapades. But...what would become of the family if he left home? Father was getting older, who would stay to protect the family?

Bennett left home before Colter did. It came as a surprise to him, as Benny never seemed to be the traveling type. At first, Colter vowed to stay behind to care for and protect the household along with Alric. But he was still a young man, and he still longed to see the world, no matter how much it scared him. So, when he was around 20 months old, he finally left home with Little Miss, heading north to see the pack where his brother and sisters resided.
