Born to a pair of loner luperci's in the Northern Regions of the Appalachian Mountains, Rath had a very sheltered childhood, learning what he knows of the outside world only within the past 6 months of his life. His parents both died of a severe sickness that he somehow managed to avoid. His father was an amateur craftsman and taught him how to use various woodworking tools to build numerous types of wooden instruments. This training started when Rath was just barely old enough to understand what a chisel was, and continued until the day his parents passed away.
Rath is a skilled musician, having quickly picked up the ability to play most of the instruments he can make, which range from small woodwind instruments to a guitar, although he has only ever made one of those with the help of his father. He can also build Adirondack style furniture and he is learning how to build buildings.
After his parents died, Henratha decided to go on a journey in search of a pack to join. He debated for almost a week before he finally left as to whether he would take any of his father's old tools with him on his journey, but he decided to leave them behind due to the fact that he was planning to travel in lupus form. He spent six months, gradually wandering his way northward, running into a pack, somewhere around the area of Vermont. This pack chased him off before he was even able to ask to join, which frightened him somewhat and lead him to recall all of the manners his mother had taught him as a child about how to behave to other members of his kind. As a result he is almost comically proper in his mannerisms, having virtually no street smarts. He's a reasonably fast learner, so hopefully he'll pick up on the various subtleties of pack living eventually.
He entered the Dahlia de Mai packlands with the hope of joining whatever pack inhabited them. He was welcomed by Slaying the Dreamer, who intimidated Rath quite a bit at first, but upon realizing that the piebald male was friendly, Rath felt comfortable that he would do alright in the pack. Cwmfen nic Graine was the next Dahlia member he met. She helped him find his three room house on the southeastern edge of Berwick on the borders of the forest. As he searched for the tools of his trade, he met Colibri Haki, a girl who seemed to share a similar personality to him, although she is more shy rather than nervous like he is. He has found himself constantly thinking about the shy girl ever since.
He offered to build her a greenhouse for her plants and that is currently his only project. Rath found a kindred spirit in Mew Sadira, the pack musician, who told him about the music room at a school in Wolfville. As he continued his search for tools he met Haku Soul who bestowed upon him an axe and a few other tools that they found in the basement of Haku's house.
At the celebration of Dahlia's 1 year anniversary, Rath met Cercelee and Deuce Rhiannon, who he learned owned the house where Colibri lived. She offered to help him build Coli's greenhouse in exchange for him making it big enough for both Coli's plants and her herbs. Not long after that he found an old carpentry shop hidden in the woods near his house and found even more tools, although he managed to wake Tokyo Chance from her slumber in the process of breaking into the barn. Now that he has found his tools he is beginning the task of collecting raw materials for Coli's greenhouse.
His lack of a social childhood leads him to be nervous around strangers, although he quickly can become acclimated to their presence if the individuals are friendly. He tends to talk a lot when he's nervous, often revealing more about himself than he usually wants or needs to. He also lacks street smarts, which have gotten him to trouble before.
Despite his nervousness he has the ability to be a strong, intimidating individual when the need arises.
- Parents: Deceased several months prior to joining Souls.
- Siblings: None that he knows of
- Other relatives: None that he knows of
Rath has skills playing and creating various musical intruments and has various woodworking skills.
Shaggy, reddish brown fur with lots of white flecks along his neck, back, and down his tail. Striking gooseberry green eyes. About 32 inches tall.
7 feet 3 inches tall making him a relatively large wolf. He has a lean muscular physique, not extraordinarily strong, but enough to be a threat if need be. The hair on his head is quite long and kinky, usually in a low ponytail although it depends on whether he has anything to tie his hair up with. Other than that his hair is very unruly and tends to hang in front of his face. He needs to get it cut, but does not have the proper means of doing so. The white flecks on his fur become more pronounced in his longer hair giving the appearance of white highlights that streak through certain parts of it.
