Eire Lykoi was born of a non-consensual encounter between Axelle Napier and Basilio Lykoi. She is the only surviving pup out of three other siblings and a pawn in her mother's eventual plan to get back at her biological father. She only joined Inferni with the intent to kill her father, but learned that he was sick upon her joining. As the month went by, Basilio's health declined and with the events of her mother's rape coming to light, he was exiled from Inferni and eventually died in the forest from his illness.
Weirdly enough, Eire found her half-sister, Helena Troy Lykoi at his deathbed, and the two of the agreed on taking bits of him to keep as keepsakes. Helena skinned him, and Eire took his skull. She eventually borrowed the skin from Helena to offer to Axelle, only planning to steal it back at a later date.
Upon returning to Axellemonths after she was supposed to, hesitating out of fear and dishonesty, Eire came clean to Axelle about how Basilio died. As Eire feared, Axelle took it extremely badly and shunned her daughter, disowning her and calling her useless and stating that she never wanted to see her again. Afterwards, Eire took drastic measures in stealing the skin back for Helena, and that same night, she waited until Axelle was asleep before sneaking into her shack and stealing the skin and her horse, Couer.
Packs members may assume and reference the following without discussion/asking:
Nothing until I figure it out!
Species: Eire is a mix between a Coyote and a Wolf, and there is a lot of Coyote in her facial features, while there's a lot of Wolf in her build.
Fur: Eire has thick fur, complete with an undercoat for those colder months.
Optime Hair: Eire's Optime hair is short, and poorly styled. Usually brushed and tucked behind one of her ears. It is kept short to stay out of her face during combat, a thought drilled into her head by Axelle.
Facial Features: Narrow muzzle, angular face, angled cheekbones, skeptical, blood red eyes - due to her Lykoi heritage - always reading the world, always pondering her next move. Eire looks upon the world as a warrior looks upon their opponent.
Build and Size: Having a small-ish mother and a very small father, what Eire lacks in height, she makes up for in strength. Under her thick coat are lean muscles that contribute to her overall strong appearance.
Humanization: Medium — Eire makes use of clothing and weapons, but does not have skills like literacy or domestic skills such as cooking or preparing meals for aestheticity.
Cold, inherently, like her mother. Not much phases Eire, a raised cold-blooded killer. Except that's not the way she turned out after all. She has consideration for others and cares about those who are considered her allies. She's generally friendly and is not shy about sparking up a conversation with strangers. She seems to connect well with lesser creatures like birds and horses.
Although she has a decent demeanor, she was raised on the principles of combat and can whip out that can of whoop ass when needed, though she doesn't fight for nothing. She's not quick to fight. She'd much rather talk it out before jumping to conclusions, but if met with no other choice, she'd do what she needs to do defend her honor and that of her allies.
Vesper and Eire share an interest in the ravens, and Eire looks up to her for that. She believed Vesper was a strong leader from what she had seen, though everyone must feel the burn of the consequences for their mistakes eventually.
Helena Lykoi is Eire's half-sister and the only one who truly showed her kindness that called herself "family". Even though Helena left Inferni and joined Salsola, the two of them maintain a friendship.
Vicira Tears: Eire and Vicira's relationship is positive, but aside from being the one to out her father and eventually, if not indirectly, cause his death, the two of them had not bonded all that much.
Neutral / Negative
Axelle Napier: Her relationship with Axelle is extremely strained if not already broken. Once doing what Axelle asked of her, or not quite, the split-furred woman wanted nothing else to do with Eire and cast her out of her life. Much to Eire's relief, she was kinda going to request the same anyway.
Basilio Lykoi: Eire didn't get a whole lot of time to figure out if Axelle's accusations were at all true about her father. For one thing, he was cast out of Inferni for some 'crimes', but Eire was secretly hoping to get a feel for her father before he'd die. He died too quickly, though.
