Deuteronomy is an old wanderer and watcher of the world, a mutt with the blood of several breeds in his veins. A storyteller, poet, herbalist and observer, this old hound left home as a youngster to explore the world and document his travels. Now an older canine, old Deut has fondly ceased his march around the world and has settled down in Nova Scotia to live out the rest of his days. He died in early 2016 of hypothermia after falling through the ice on the lake. He had taken up residence at Rabbit Lake at the time of his death, and was buried near its shore by a random passerby. His two companions are nowhere to be found.

  • Hearing him baying after something

1.  Appearance

1.1  Basics


  • Species: While he is not a complete mix of hounds, Deuteronomy takes almost completely after that part of his heritage.
  • Fur: He has short but smooth fur which has a soft, silky texture - especially during the wintertime. He suffers during the cold weather, and really is not built to live as far up north as he does.
    • Optime Hair: Unusually enough, Deuteronomy doesn't actually have hair when in Optime. For whatever reason, there is no difference in his head, with possibly just a slight fluffiness on the nape of his neck.
  • Facial Features: While not nearly as wrinkly as a purebred bloodhound, Deut has inherited the heavy, loose skin known to the breed. His ears are long and heavy, but he has the profile much like an ariegeois. His eyes droop ever so slightly, but he attributes that to age, and not breed. The skin on his chin and neck is soft and droopy.
  • Build and Size: Deut is thick of build and long of leg, and a formidable opponent in any case. His skin slides loosely over his muscle, and his heaviness adds to his size. While shorter and smaller than most wolves, he is large for a dog, and built for stamina and brute strength rather than speed. In his older age, he has grown smaller, and can't hold himself as high as he once did - but he still looks noble.
    • Lupus: Deut looks like a lighter, less wrinkly bloodhound, and doesn't lift his head above shoulder-level very often. He looks older, and moves slower than he once did, but still has many outward traits of a dog in his prime.
    • Optime: In Optime, he is short and thick, but not particularly broad or buff. It is in this form that Deuteronomy looks oldest, standing slightly stooped and moving much more delicately. While he does not have a belly, he is not thin, either, and is of an average appearance for his age.
  • Humanization: Deuteronomy is human in everything but species.


  • Fur:
    • His primary fur colour is Paarl
    • Secondary coat colour is Night Rider, with darkest areas of Light Black
  • Markings:
    • His muzzle and ears are Night Rider, and he has Black freckling over the bridge of his nose and his ears
    • Night Rider/Light Black collar and stockings, with a White strip through the collar
  • Eyes: Eye color is Sushi
    • Nose and Paw Pads: Black

1.2  Miscellaneous


  • Scars: A few little scratches here and there, all covered by his fur
  • Piercings: -
  • Tattoos: -


Deuteronomy prefers nakedness to being clothed, and rarely wears anything but a llama-fur winter cloak during the cold weather.

Jewelry and Accessories

  • Pendant or two given to him as gifts - unworn, kept safe.

While Deuteronomy sees the value of his Lupus form, he does not enter it often, and prefers it only when sleeping during the winter.

108 lbs (xx kg)

Preferring Secui to Lupus, he uses this for checking traps and for fighting, if he needs it. He can do everything in this form that he can in his Lupus, except on a larger scale, which he appreciates.

147 lbs (xx kg)
5ft 5in (xx in / xx cm)

Optime (Preferred)

Deut can do all of his favourite things in this form, and uses it almost all the time. He also looks the oldest in this form, but doesn't mind. Opposable forms before physical beauty, right?


  • Speech: Deuteronomy has not lived in England in a long time, but he still possesses his accent. He speaks softly and with conviction, and while his voice tends to be a bit gravelly, it is clear and always understandable. It would most resemble Sean Bean's.
  • Scent: He has never had a permanent scent, having adopted that of his surroundings which was constantly changing. Now that he has settled, however, he smells like the forest, old books, candles, the lake, and firewood.
  • Quirks, Gestures, Etc.: Deut is very calm and fluid appearing. He does not move quickly in anything he does, and when he speaks with his hands, his gestures are slow and gentle - and he does speak with his hands, a lot. He also hums and speaks to himself.
  • General Posture and Body Language: In his prime he held himself with pride, but mostly he looked curious and energetic. Now that he's older, Deuteronomy appears very noble and wise, and he has a very slight hunch while standing or sitting. He does not appear very expressive, and it's hard to get a read on him. He is neither dominant nor submissive in his body language.


2.  Personality

A brief (1-3 paragraphs) personality description goes here. It'd probably be best to write this last, since you should pull key traits out of the rest of your information and then put it here. This section is good to stick in your forum profile as their "Personality" section.

2.1  Ideals


Wise, noble, curious, intuitive, father-like

  • Outlook: Optimistic
  • Sociability: Quietly extroverted
  • Expression: Does not believe in submission or dominance
  • Alignment: Neutral good


  • Gaining and recording knowledge (of people, the world, herbs, medicine, etc.)
  • Happiness for him and his companions


  • Dying: He would never admit it, but he dreads the day he'll leave the world, because he doesn't believe the soul and memory remain after death. And he doesn't want to forget everything he's learned and everyone he's loved.
  • Heights: Self explanatory. He's not deathly afraid of them, but won't venture to high places unless absolutely necessary.


  • Packs: None
  • Species: None
  • Non-Luperci: Feels a slight pity for them, but respects them
  • Gender: Thinks that women are naturally more intelligent
  • Color: -
  • Sexuality: Whatever floats your boat, as long as everyone's happy
  • Age: Loves children, can't stand others his own age


He's an older feller, so not much of this anymore! When he was younger he enjoyed a good romp in the hay, but was always respectful towards the ladies. And only ladies - he was absolutely heterosexual. Now that he's older, he would probably feel about the same way, but would feel self conscious about his ability to perform.


  • Likes: Mules, cats, plants, herbs, medicine, human books, humans, poetry, instruments, music, thunderstorms, swimming, sunshine, candles, children and babies, ravens
  • Dislikes: Cold weather, windy days, old people, rude people
    • There isn't much he dislikes!


A bit of alcohol is nice. Never gets drunk, and never makes his own. If he's in the mood he'll trade for it.


Deuteronomy doesn't identify with any religion, and despises the thought of a "God." He doesn't believe in life after death, and hasn't really thought much about it beyond that.
