1.  Synopsis

Esmerelda de la Luz is one of three children born to two high-ranking Ashen from prominent, well-respected families: Rafaela Tejada and Bennett Braithwaite. Her chosen surname, which translates from Spanish to of the light, is a nod to deceased aunt Luciana Escuella. This follows a semi-tradition, which started with the naming of uncle Calhoun de la Cruz, of naming children after deceased family members. Each of the girls will be immersed in the world of horsemanship and hard work at a young age but are expected to be raised in a warm and loving home environment.

2.  Characteristics

2.1  Appearance


Esmerelda is a full-blooded coyote of predominantly Northeastern Coyote heritage with smaller proportions of Plains and Mexican genes that are likely to play on her physical traits.

To help determine her size, please reference the following ranges from her respective parents. Note that Bennett is large for his species/family and horses are an important aspect of Del Ceneren culture, so careful consideration into equine carrying capacities vs Esme's height/weight should be taken when deciding upon a set size.

Mother's Size
Lupus: 28 lbs (12.7 kg) — 24 in (61 cm)
Secui: 123 lbs (55.8 kg) — 47 in (119.4 cm)
Optime: 138 lbs (62.6 kg) — 5 ft 5 in (65 in) (165.1 cm)

Father's Size
Lupus: 55 lbs (29.8 kg) — 30 in (76 cm)
Secui: 175 lbs (79 kg) — 45 in (114 cm)
Optime: 285 lbs (129 kg) — 6 ft 10 in (82 in) (208 cm)

Esme's color palette takes more after her father's pale, sandy Braithwaite hues. But she definitely owes her eye color to her mother.
