2.  Appearance

2.1  Basics

Essentials

  • Species: Jayce’s heritage includes various dog breeds like shepherd, husky, Irish setter, and rough collie, along with several types of wolf. Her dog genetics are obvious in her markings and ginger coat color.
  • Fur: Jayce's fur is coming in longer and somewhat silky. Her back is a medium brown, fading through ginger shades, ending on her shoulders and partway down her hind legs. Her underside and the end of her tail are light grayish white. Her fur texture and length is looking very much like her collie heritage the older she gets, although it's not fully grown in yet.
    • Optime Hair: Jayce's hair falls to a little above her shoulders and it usually has no particular style to it unless someone else offers to do it, although she does tie it back in a tiny ponytail sometimes if she needs it out of her face. The color is an extension of the fur on her head, so it's mostly ginger shades with a little bit of white in the undermost layer.
  • Facial Features: Dark brown fur appears on the tips and sides of her ears and under her eyes while her muzzle, eyebrows, and around her eyes are light grayish white. The ginger shades go from the top of her head, around on her cheeks and ends almost at her nose. The fur on the sides of her face is getting longer, reflecting her collie genetics. Her nose and paw pads are a dark grayish brown. Her eyes are green.
  • Build and Size: Jayce is maturing into a lithe canine, although her fluffy fur is beginning to hide this somewhat.
    • Lupus: xx lbs (xx kg) -- xx in (xx cm)
    • Secui: xx lbs (xx kg) -- xx in (xx cm)
    • Optime: xx lbs (xx kg) -- xft xin (xx in / xx cm)
  • Humanization: Jayce enjoys wearing necklaces and she'll put clothes on when she needs to. She likes loose-fitting, simple clothes that aren't fussy.

3.  Personality

3.1  Overview

Like many puppies, Jayce is always interested in seeing what’s going on, wanting to smell (and chew on... or roll in...) everything she finds. With how easy the first two months of her life have been, she has a fearless streak in her that is probably going to get her in trouble someday. And a naughty streak. If she’s not supposed to chew on it, she probably is. As she’s been able to move around more, she’s gotten into increasing amounts of mischief. There's also a probably annoying level of barking.

Jayce’s attention span is not great and she’s easily distracted. Movement? Shiny? Smells awful? Distractions, all of it. She can also be a little impatient and somewhat easily frustrated, which she’s still learning to express without using her very sharp puppy teeth. When she’s tired, she gets a little cranky and is more likely to nip instead of using her words. That will stop at some point... probably.

She likes to try new things, which is happening more and more often now, especially when she follows big sister Tegan around. With almost everyone she comes across, Jayce wants to ask questions. What are they doing? Why are they doing it? Can it be eaten? She’s just starting to learn what the body language for ‘go away’ looks like, so she may sometimes overstay her welcome. Jayce also likes to wrestle with anyone who wants to, and sometimes attempts to wrestle with pack mates who don’t want to, which goes back to understanding the ‘go away’ posture.

She is very expressive, making her emotions obvious. Most often, she’s open and friendly, but teeth will flash when she’s angry, and body language will scream scared when she’s frightened. Jayce also thinks she's a lot sneakier than she actually is. (Read: she's not. At all).

  • Tegan Wolfe-Denahlii: Tegan is the sibling that Jayce feels closest to. She loves following her sister around and seeing what mischief they can get away with up to.
  • Petrichor: Petrichor is kinda grumpy, which isn't great, but despite this, he's patient with Jayce and explains what he's doing when she asks about his work processing furs. He also lets her hang out in his shop and sometimes even talk to his customers. Also he has a pointy pet porcupine named Spike.
  • Battle Symphony: Battle is so cool with her super fluffy fur, long viking-style braid, and skill with weapons. She is also kind and willing to teach Jayce about different weapons and generally makes her feel welcome even when Jayce knows she's annoying Petrichor, who Battle lives with.

Jayce was born in a litter of four puppies. She has no real memories from the time soon after that; mostly she remembers feelings of warmth and safety. Sometimes a little bit of a chill, but it didn’t last long. Then sounds and brightness.

As she became more mobile, she became more mischievous. Anything from attempting to tussle with siblings even if she was told not to, to somehow getting her mouth (and teeth) on things she shouldn’t have. This sometimes includes her family members’ tails. When she wasn’t getting into any trouble she could find, she enjoyed listening to stories and learning things from anyone who would teach her.

Tegan quickly became her favorite sibling. Although Jayce loved all of her siblings, she was too young to understand that being obvious about that sort of favoritism might not be a great thing. But really, Tegan is awesome!

As the winter melted into spring, Jayce’s exploration started getting a little further out from her home. There were new smells and also plants. Lots of plants. Most of them tasted pretty bad, though. And bugs! So many bugs to chase. Some of those tasted pretty bad, too. And one that somehow made a really awful stench! Gross. It made her wish she had hands so she could have brought it home. Jayce's exploration and curiosity led her to being interested in everything to do with the Avalon. She also continued to follow Tegan around whenever she could.

Her first shift was uneventful, although it still took her by surprise. She wasn't the first of her siblings to shift, but she was no less excited to finally have hands. She could try even more new things! But with hands came self-imposed pressure to learn to use a weapon and fumbling, failed attempts to learn about a bunch of different ones. Jayce's impatience meant that she quickly gave up when she wasn't immediately good at each one, leaving her more frustrated than ever and a bit anxious.

At the mentor ceremony that she shared with her siblings and other pack members, Jayce was thrilled to have Tegan named as her mentor. She already spent so much time with her that she seemed like the obvious, perfect match. After the ceremony, Jayce dove into earning her shields to add to her purple sash, learning from Tegan and other members of the pack as well.
