OOC Assumptions

  • New Caledonia members may assume and reference the following without discussion/asking:
    • Seeing Kule...
      • ...walking around in Lupus or Secui form.
      • ...talking with Concepta.

Plot Opportunities

  • HUNGER FOR KNOWLEDGE: Ever since being infected with the Luperci virus, Kule has led two different lives: feral and sophisticated. But this two-legged form is still growing. It needs food, in the form of knowledge! Teach Kule something 'prim and proper': kingdom etiquette, cursive handwriting, etcetera!

1.  Introduction

Kule del Morte (formerly Kule Pana, married to Liam del Morte in Jan 2022) is a Luperci Verto, born in 2019 to a wolf-coyote father and full coyote mother. They were born alongside two siblings.

When they came to 'Souls, they were a non-Luperci, but after becoming infected through an encounter with Liam del Morte, their life's potential directions drastically opened up. They traveled with him for a short while, finding Concepta Driscoll along the way. Wanting to take Concepta to a safer place, they went to New Caledonia and joined their ranks right as shadows fell over the kingdom. While at first hesitant to stick around to see the dark times to the end, Kule's resolve to build a home in the Kingdom overtook the urge to run. They stood their ground.


2.  Appearance

2.1  Basics

  • Speech: Calm, soothing: typically a quiet, relaxed monotone in casual conversation.
  • Scent: Salt, grass, soil.
  • Quirks, Gestures, Etc.: Growls to show anxiety and fear rather than aggression, tilts head when curious.
  • General Posture and Body Language: Standard body language, if somewhat stilted — may be see as disingenuous or awkward.

Their purple eyes, from which Kule Pana earned their name within their pack, are by far and large the most striking feature they own in the physical world. Other than that, Kule is average in everything. Size, pelt, face, all of it remains mediocre to the end. The air around Kule makes this mediocrity not so much painful as it is a comfort. Taken out of another time, before all this change hit the world of canines, Kule's way of expressing themself is as simple and to the point as their body. When they smile, they smile. When they frown, they frown. It can't be put in a way more interesting than that, there are not often mysteries to uncover beyond what they show others. When there are such secrets, they are tightly hidden to the point where not even Kule themself may be aware of them.

Kule's agouti pelt appears as a mixture of dull browns and grays. Their underbelly and paws contain the most gray coloration. They are firmly more coyote than wolf, only small traces of wolf blood can be noticed, primarily within their smell and size. They step lightly and with purpose. They do not groom themselves outside of what is expected hygiene for a non-Luperci, although after becoming a Verto they have taken to braiding their long unruly mane for practicality's sake. As they are of medium expressiveness, they do not tend to make huge shows of dominance nor submission beyond what they think is enough to placate (or intimidate) other canines.

2.3  Forms

Lupus: 35 lbs (16 kg) ↔ 24 in (60 cm)
Kule hasn't forgotten this form in their recent change and still uses it frequently. They use it especially when they are feeling nostalgic for their non-Luperci days. In this form, they are the least threatening. After all, they could only be a scavenger as a non-Luperci, nothing more.

Secui: 135 lbs (61 kg) ↔ 35 in (89 cm)
Feeling exceptionally powerful yet strange in this form, Kule doesn't use it as often as Lupus in everyday life, but still shifts into it occasionally. They are still getting used to how they move when in it but thoroughly enjoy being shifted into Secui form. This may become a preferred form for them overtime. After using it in a successful hunt, they feel more confident with it.

Optime: 160 lbs (72.5 kg) ↔ 6 ft 0 in (72 in / 183 cm)
Taller than most would expect from their height due to their long neck, Kule usually braids their hair. When not braided, it falls down all the way to their waist.


3.  Personality

3.1  Basics

by Nic

Kule was raised alongside non-Luperci that have not strayed from the older, 'natural' (debatable) ways. They settled into this lifestyle from their upbringing and embraced it wholeheartedly. It isn't that they discriminate, or are against advancement; far from it, Kule has a curiosity about the world and is always looking for ways to improve themself. However, they would not sacrifice their roots at any opportunity that comes their way. They're open to new experiences, but they wouldn't jump headfirst into adventure. They're cautious and skeptical of what other creatures tell them, and shrewd enough to know that anyone promising a miracle might be spinning a tale.

They try to respect all forms of life and remain open-minded. This trait of theirs led to them being 'conversational' (in a manner of speaking) in low speech, specifically with crows and ravens as those birds shared Kule's past scavenger lifestyle. They still often find themself sharing meals with these corvidae, hearing bits of news from them.

Walking with one paw in the feral world, and one foot in the Kingdom, Kule hosts odd moral lines that they twist to fit their needs. They will deal with threats of any kind with savage abandon, but they rarely if ever hunt for sport, and they find the idea of disrespect towards a corpse abhorrent as it is useless. They try their best to keep their connection to nature whole, while balancing a growing lean towards the studious pursuits. They are an introverted animal, they speak little and only say what is important to them—yet at the same time they would do anything for a loyal, close friend. Budding as a creature of duality, Kule tries to keep their cool as their foundation morphs into something entirely new.

Strengths

  • Focused: Kule is determined to fulfill their goals, no matter the cost. Because of this, they are hard-working and perservere in even the worst of conditions.
  • Neutral: Though generally on the side of the law, they are good at taking a step back from their emotions and viewing situations from a more detached eye. They attempt to be fair, in their own way, when addressing problems.
  • Respectful: Even towards enemies, Kule respects all life. It is rare that they genuinely wish, with venom, harm or ruin upon another. If they view another as a threat, they will attempt to dispatch that canine... but not with hate or fear.

Weaknesses

  • Nosy: Their hunger for knowledge is both a blessing and a curse: Kule often puts their nose where it doesn't belong, and 'learns too much', so to speak. However, they do not like to ask many questions. Instead, they observe.
  • Hypocritical Morality: Kule often makes moral exceptions for themself when it comes to reaching their goals. If an otherwise 'evil' action propels them forward, they will do it and try to convince others and themself that it was necessary.
  • Secretive: They hold onto whatever information they get. They hold these secrets close to their chest unless the benefit to reveal it outgrows the instinct to hide them. They could be considered to hoard knowledge, and sometimes desire to keep it from others.

3.2  Specifics

Sociability

  • Emotional Disposition: Neutral, pretty standard. They may under react to extreme circumstances.
  • Sociability: Kule is friendly and loves to chat, despite being introverted, as it helps their English skills.
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral (Evil Tendency; "Not Quite Neutral")
    • Seeks secure employment, believing hard work will pay off in the end.
    • Believes people deserve the treatment they are willing to endure.
    • Respects the laws and authority figures of the community and nation.
    • Will betray law-breaking friends if profitable. Will not betray loyal friends.
  • Tropes:

Motivations

Kule's main motivations are instinct-driven: they want to survive and reproduce. But after shifting for the first time, Kule has finally found that there's something more to life than previously thought. It creates a maddening wanderlust within them.

Biases

  • Packs: Del Cenere Gang seems cool.
  • Species: Kule is not currently aware of species tension within 'Souls. They view themselves as a coyote, most days, but they do not ignore the small amount of wolf blood within them. Jackals and dogs are more unknown to them, so they have a small subconscious bias as to not empathize with them as much, but the difference is slight.
  • Luperci: They are both fascinated and cautious while interacting with Luperci. They worry that Luperci are Icarus, flying too close to the sun. Everything about shifting seems great... but what if it just needlessly complicates life? After being turned, Kule feels the fire: they want to fly, but will their wings melt?
  • Gender: What is gender? Kule has a limited understanding of it. To Kule and their family, only 'male' and 'female' exist, and these refer to biological differences only: they do not come with pronouns or gender roles.
  • Sexuality: A male and female are needed to procreate, but that doesn't mean romance can't occur between others.

Sexuality

Demi-bi, Kule prefers males sexually just for their biological compatibility but wouldn't turn up their nose romantically at anyone else.

Spirituality

Spiritual, not religious. Kule believes in reincarnation and feels heavily connected with the circle of life. They believe it's spiritually important to remember one individual's insignificance compared to the whole of life.


3.3  Skills

Main Focus: Combat, Defense, Study

  • MASTER
    • Low Speech (Corvidae): When it comes to crows and ravens, there is little Kule does not understand of their low speech.
    • Bilingual (Toki Pona): Kule's native tongue is Toki Pona.
  • JOURNEYMAN
    • Hunting: While transitioning from a scavenger to a full time hunter isn't easy, Kule is making the best of it. They excel at tracking, though they have no proficiency with bows or throwing spears.
    • Fighting (Tooth & Claw): They try to avoid fights, but Kule does exceptional work with their fangs and claws, in any form, given their overall lack of experience.
    • Shifting: Though only recently turned, Kule's tendency to change forms frequently is making them adept at shifting. They still require more experience, but it is safe to say they are on the path to becoming quick with it.
  • DABBLER
    • Fighting (Dagger): Kule keeps a dagger attached to their leg, but they have little experience with it beyond sparring.
    • Reading & Writing: This is a newly taught skill by Concepta. They are diving into it with the same vigor they have for learning English in general, which is to say, a lot. They cannot understand most written messages that are not their own, but their handwriting is improving, so that's a step.

Auxiliary Skills and Hobbies

  • MASTER
  • JOURNEYMAN
    • Sharp Wits: Their youthful mind is quick, but it is fueled by good, sturdy instincts. As such, Kule can make reliable decisions on the fly.
  • DABBLER
    • Drink Tasting: When you have a Brewmaster for a mate, it gets you places.
    • Charisma: Surprisingly, Kule seems to make friendships easily. They are laid-back and responsive, a demeanor that makes most canines feel right at home talking to them. They offer solutions to problems with their more analytical brain, something that is also valued during conversation. However, not everyone takes to them and they aren't good at figuring out exactly what people want, so this can be considered a minor strength.


4.  Familial Relationships

Family

  • Siblings: Two siblings (potentially open for creation, contact me if interested!)

Italics indicates an unknown relationship; they may be offboard or the relation is merely uncertain.
* indicates character does not know this person by name.

  • Parents:
    • Gratitude is what Kule feels for their mother and father, although they have no plans to ever return to their original packlands.
  • Siblings:
    • Kule has two siblings that are assumed to be alive. They do not care much for their siblings, although they are not hostile towards them either.

5.  Other Relations

Key

  • Liam del Morte is... their mate? It still feels unreal. Truthfully, Liam and Kule have not spent much time together, and Kule's attachment to him does not have a stable foundation. They struggle with the urge to push Liam away as they are not used to feeling like they rely on anyone, but they also have a strong desire to be by his side forever, start a family with him. Liam, on the other hand, while at first distant, is growing to be obsessed with Kule. The two are new to commitment and trying to figure it out.

6.  Home & Inventory

Home

Within The City Square: A quaint cottage, it is one of the smaller stone houses in the square, complete with dusty green shudders and mismatched stones. The kitchen is modestly stocked, and the front room is equipped with a ratty couch and fireplace that are serviceable for entertaining guests. The two back rooms have been established as sleeping quarters.

Inventory

Most of Kule's possessions have been given to them by Liam del Morte: he is a merchant with more ready access to goods. These gifts include a full outfit of leather and a cloak. They have now taken to attaching a knife to their upper leg.


7.  History

Kule comes from a scattering collective of packs located in a small area of North America simply referred to as 'Kulupu', meaning pack or group. Each individual pack is typically one breeding pair and their litter, with maybe one or two outsiders. Packs that are apart of the larger community known as 'Kulupu' are assumed to be on good terms with each other even if they rarely meet, as they are usually connected by blood however distantly. There are a few Luperci packs that try to maintain trade and communication within the community, but because many of the packs are non-Luperci these communications typically fall on deaf ears.

Kule themself was born to a litter of three. They were never particularly close to their siblings, but tolerated them and didn't fight much with them. They grew up not understanding much beyond their own language and culture. And although they loved their family, but there comes a time in every canine's life when they must leave their family and try to make their own. For this reason, Kule wandered. Although their primary goal was instinctual (reproduce), Kule did not feel particularly hurried to fulfill this.

Then they met Liam del Morte, and everything changed.
