Kaleidoscope (A.K.A Ida, F.K.A: Tetrad or Polymorph Prismshard; all self-given names) is a member of New Caledonia, ranked as a Commoner.

The coywolf has a lengthy history within the land of 'Souls, most of which relating to the Thistle Kingdom: Salsola. After being infected by Khalifa D'Angelo and turned into a Luperci Verto, Kaleidoscope became a servant and indebted to the pack. However, as Kaleidoscope suffers from frequent dissociative fugues, their service to the Kingdom was left patchy and disorienting. They would vanish often unintentionally, amnesia taking any memory of who they are or where they were. With an increasingly polyfragmented identity, Kaleidoscope struggled to make their way back to the kingdom (with the unwitting help of Hallo, a ghost fox who had been caught in a Salsolan trap) to fully pay off their debt. After a brief time as Marik D'Angelo's servant, they wound up in the possession of Egregore Prizmov. The two fell in love and Kaleidoscope was eventually freed by him.

They had plans to be wed, before amnesia struck Kaleidoscope yet again. Though they recovered their memories after weeks-long fugue, they were changed drastically by the experience: left malnourished and questioning their place in Salsola. Innokentiy Prizmov, Egregore's cousin, preyed on this. Kaleidoscope's worsening view of their life came to a head when Innokentiy took them outside the territory and gave them a 'test' in which they told Kaleidoscope the sordid history of the Prizmov household and Salsola has a whole: it was full to the brim of murderers, thieves, and liars. The objective was to mold Kaleidoscope into a 'true' Salsolan.

Kaleidoscope refused to cooperate, nor had any desire to conform into such a thing.

Making the choice to desert the thorny Thistle Kingdom, Ida ran for their life, using Innokentiy's disability to their advantage as the Prizmov was unable to give chase to them. Running for miles, they eventually collapsed near the borders of New Caledonia. Assisted by Liam del Morte, they were accepted into their new home by Kalypso Savoy.

1.  Characteristics

1.1  Appearance


In Lupus form, their body stands twenty inches tall, and while they are usually twenty pounds heavy, there are currently recovering from starvation and as such weigh less.

Kaleidoscope is a ragged looking thing, scrawny and clearly a hunter of smaller game. Their fur is surprisingly soft to the touch, yet often this dark pelt is marred with dirt, leaves, or other aspects of nature's gifts. One of their eyes is green (the right), and the other is a dark red. Kaleidoscope often appears to be squinting with their red eye. Their eyes, in general, are the most expressive part of them. They will blink slowly to show peace, almost like a feline, widen them to show shock, and so forth.

Their body language is often naturally submissive due to the long-term position as a lower ranking member in any band or pack they were in. They are not strong, but Kaleidoscope is a fantastic runner, thanks in part to hunting smaller animals for so long. They are accustomed to sprinting for rabbits and mice among other things. While they were never much help in a pack hunt, this canine's legs have carried them far as a lone hybrid.



  • Lupus : 20 in (50.8 cm) ↔ 20 lbs (9.07 kg kg) *
  • Secui: 30 in (76 cm) ↔ 125 lbs (41 kg) *
  • Optime: 5ft (152.5 cm) ↔ 150 lbs (68 kg) *
    • Weights reflected are Kaleidoscope's healthy weights, but because Ida is currently recovering from a long period of malnourishment, they weigh considerably less than this currently.


  • Speech: Kaleidoscope has a deeper, androgynous voice that is somewhat scratchy and monotone in normal conversation: however, they can have bouts of extremely expressive tone.
  • Unique Scent: Primarily earthy, sage, marshy
  • General Posture and Body Language: They are light on their feet and typically stealth is their default, though not usually their intention. They are guarded, folding their arms and turning their body away frequently

1.2  Personality

Summarized: Kind, anxious, loyal, curious

While Kaleidoscope's personality can depend on the day, the changes between their fragments is not so drastic. One would think that after breaking into smaller bits the changes would only be more noticeable, but instead how small they are hides them. From a bird's eye view, Kaleidoscope is whole. It is only when you get close now that you can see all the cracks in their psyche.

While before Kaleidoscope on an average day would be energetic, curious and kind, things have changed for them. They are now guarded and cautious, burned from feeling betrayed and lied to during their time in Salsola. One thing is for sure, they are still eccentric to a degree, and often don't understand more complex social behaviors: things like sarcasm elude them. Kaleidoscope is content in being a black sheep, but does struggle with anxiety from time to time. They have a tendency to worry but often like to direct it at fretting over other's business and how any other's plan may go awry, rather than their own problems.

In the past, because of their experience with going into dissociative fugues, they did not like to travel without someone watching them. This has now changed: Kaleidoscope has a more devil-may-care attitude and has ceased fearing their fugues and amnesia. To them: if it happens again... it happens. Currently, in this stage of their life, they refuse to give much care about catering to it.

They are no longer gullible as they once were for a long time, and instead have grown to be a... little mistrusting of others, understandably so. In spite of this, they believe there are good people in the world, and are not overly paranoid of other's intentions. Their optimism is still recovering but is expected to make a comeback.

  • Motivations: Having a support system, growing their strengths
  • Fears: Being lied to
  • Likes: Playing in puddles or mud, foot races, singing
  • Dislikes: Tea


  • Packs: While once highly oblivious to their Fell status amongst Salsola, since being made aware of it, they refuse to step inside the Thistle Kingdom ever again. It's for the best: they are a deserter, after all.
  • Age: Believes elders to be wise by default.


Kaleidoscope is primarily interested in those that display a high amount of masculinity. Because of their hard road to recovery, they have mostly been focused on themselves and have not given a thought to romance beyond daydreams: this is something has been further drilled in by having one long-term relationship fall apart due to their mental instability. They do not have a high libido and find it scandalous to speak about sex in explicit detail.


They grew up in a superstitious pack that thought of them as a collection of 'spirits' rather than a collection of personalities. Before, Kaleidoscope disregarded this explanation and thought it insulting. Recently, however, they have started to find it a comfort. After their dissociative fugue on the trip to Portland, they began to notice take notice of spirits all around them, and had recurring visions of a fox named Hallo. Their belief in magic and spirits grew, and they now find it easy to communicate with them.


They have never tried substances because they are oblivious to their existence. If confronted with them, Kaleidoscope would likely try them unless warned about their dangers.

1.3  Skills

Note: Listed skills are those that the character has some significant talent or interest in to be noteworthy. Skills that have been mastered (and are best expressed as such) are marked.

Main Focus: Artisan
  • Song & Dance:
Began picking up this skill during their misadventures before returning to Portland. Kaleidoscope found a love for performing for small groups. Because of their kindness, they found it easy to get along with travelers they met on the way, and oftentimes performed for them in front of their campfires, simple little songs at first, but growing in confidence, especially when they met someone who could provide an instrumental accompaniment. They often sing about their feelings, or dreams: flickers of visions they have. Their voice is now rather practiced.
  • Painting:
Kaleidoscope has painted numerous pieces before and often finds it relaxing to do so. Their primary specialization is portraits: they like to paint others if they can convince someone to pose for one.
Auxiliary Skills and Hobbies
  • Low Speech (Horse):
Kaleidoscope can understand low speech in a horse dialect, and can sometimes communicate back to them by mimicking their body language.
  • Literacy:
They were taught how to read & write during their stay in Salsola by the Prizmov household.
  • Cooking & Cleaning:
As a servant, they began to pick up this skill, although never quite became an efficient master at it. It is something they have trouble with now.

3.  Relationships



  • --


  • Egregore Prizmov is Kaleidoscope's former master turned lover. Although at one point they had plans to be wed, Kaleidoscope now feels utterly betrayed by him and the whole of the Prizmov household. The happy memories they formed together now bring Ida pain.
  • Innokentiy Prizmov is Egregore's cousin, and unbeknownst to Ida, now his new lover. Kaleidoscope severely mistrusts Innokentiy and, while they have some form of gratitude that they revealed the true nature of Salsola to them, it is dampened by the fact that Innokentiy apparently sees nothing wrong with the culture.
