Laurentin Aston is the son of Saqui Utina and Claudius Aston born alongside his sister, Danaë Aston. Early into his mother's pregnancy, she broke her leg while travelling to The Great Tribe from AniWaya. The stresses of her broken leg and a difficult journey resulted in Saqui miscarrying four of the six puppies.
Laurentin was raised in the Great Tribe alongside his sister and yearned to journey to AniWaya to meet his father. In May 2015, he joined Yepa Sofia in her trek to the tribe. He ended up outlasting Yepa and continued his journey alone after Yepa did not continue.
While in AniWaya, Laurentin ascended to the Skilled ranks, and later, took over as leader. In September of 2016, Laurentin received word from The Great Tribe requesting that he step down from his role. Instead, he disbanded AniWaya and led some of the former members out of Nova Scotia to found a new pack, Auclair.
Feel free to reference having seen Laurentin travelling toward AniWaya from Minnesota between May to July 2015 with Yepa Sofia
The Great Tribe members may assume and reference the following without discussion/asking:
Seeing Laurentin in and around the Great Tribe, speaking with Laurentin for short conversations, and advising him on his rank path choice
Scolding Laurentin for running amok and generally getting underfoot!
Species: Laurentin's wolf heritage is the most well-defined, with a stature quite typical of a Common Gray Wolf.
Fur: Some dog influence is apparent in his fur, which tends to be longer and thicker than a wolf's. For the most part, his colouration tends toward wolf agouti patterns; although, the rich browns he inherits from his mother's Belgian Shepherd background.
Optime Hair: Does not style it; lets it grow out as a thick mane.
Facial Features: A narrow face, predominantly wolfish.
Build and Size: Due to his mixed wolf and dog heritage, Laurentin tends toward a stature typical of a Common Gray Wolf. He has a thick build.
Lupus: What does their Lupus form look like? I guess you could stick a Secui section under here.
Optime: How about Optime?
Humanization: Very humanized. Uses his optime form frequently, rides horses, and uses tools often.
Primary coat color: Copper Rose
Secondary coat color: Hint of Red underbelly lined with Cloud
Dye: dyes stripes of his lighter fur with blue dyes. They tend to be faded as they wash out very quickly.
you can stick more description about their humanization and how they practice it here. or don't! by the way, you might want to adjust the cell widths here: 33/33/33 gives you even columns etc. do the math out of 100% of course :D

Laurentin's preferred form is his Optime form since he tends to conduct his patrols in AniWaya on horseback.
Laurentin is talkative and vivacious and is never at a loss for words. If anything, he was too many. He has trouble sitting still and paying attention, since he is always looking for something newer and more exciting to do. He tends to break the rules, oftentimes willfully, but usually because he forgets what they are or doesn't pay enough attention. As a result, he was branded as a troublemaker and general nuisance in the Great Tribe and was seen as always trying to ignore the wishes of the elders.
More than anything, Laurentin wants to find his spirit guide. He has pursued his spirit guide on three different instances, with each journey lasting longer than the previous. Eternally disappointed, Laurentin has not yet found his spirit guide.
Fear of missing out: eternally concerned that he will miss out on the next big opportunity, whatever that might be.
Won't find his spirit guide: worried that he will not find his spirit guide, that he does not deserve one, that he is too good for one while also not being good enough for one, and that he is too unconventional to be accepted by a spirit guide.
Likes: exploring, languages
Dislikes: conformity, rules, expectations
Packs: Laurentin thinks that The Great Tribe is a little too stuffy and follows way too many rules. Since The Great Tribe demanded that he step down from leadership in AniWaya, he holds a rather poor view of them. From past trading experiences, Laurentin views Vinátta and Krokar favourably. Anathema's past aggresions and Salsola's slave-owning tendencies means he views both pack with distrust and hostility.
Species: Laurentin does not have any biases against any other species; though, one time a horse stepped on his foot, so he doesn't like them very much.
Non-Luperci: Laurentin grew up in a community of luperci, so he doesn't understand when luperci deny their own abilities and favour their lupus form; it's just not something he can understand.
Gender: No gender preference. Sees men and women as equal.
Colour: No coat colour preference.
Sexuality: Tends to believe that monogamous relationships are the default and has not been exposed to much else. No biases related to sexuality.
Age: Respects and honours the elderly, cherishes the young, and sees adults as equals.
Laurentin is heterosexual and very slightly biromantic, with a strong tend toward being heteroromantic. He is predominantly heterosexual, but more than incidentally homosexual. However, he doesn't know much about initiating same-sex relationships, so it is likely that he will function as a heterosexual and heteroromantic.
Laurentin smokes tobacco in ceremonies, but not recreationally. He has not been exposed to drug use.
Laurentin believes in the AniWayan/ Cherokee form of spiritualism. He doesn't really question it and takes it very much for granted having lived in the Great Tribe his entire life.
Saqui Utina raised Laurentin and his sister in the tribe. He loves his mother a lot, but he is a little sour that she never returned to AniWaya and wishes their entire family could be together.
Marsali Amarok is Laurentin's closest friend in AniWaya/ Auclair. He thinks she is shy, but brave, and reminds him of his sister in that way. He likes talking to her and enjoys her company. He's very impressed that she has become a warrior.
Danaë Aston is Laurentin's only sister. She's okay, I guess
Claudius Aston is Laurentin's father. He's been getting to know his dad over the past few months and enjoys his company, even if he finds him to be a little conservative. Claudius terrified Laurentin with his missing finger and a morbid lesson, so Laurentin isn't sure what to think of him entirely.
Auguste Aston is Laur's uncle. Laurentin likes the calm, quiet wolfdog and enjoys talking to him about horses. He is impressed with Auguste's intelligence.
Tsu-la was one of Laurentin's friends in the Great Tribe; Tsu-la was a bit of a bad influence on Laurentin and enjoyed egging him on and getting him in trouble; basically a true friend :')
Neutral / Negative
Achak Aatu is the big bossman: a little scary and intimidating, seemingly nice, though oddly always managed to find Laurentin when he was up to no good. Or when he seemed to be up to no good.
Bo Quayle is Danaë's best friend. Laurentian saw a lot of Bo and thought he was a really cool guy. Honestly, Laur was just kind of jealous that Dan was such good friend with Bo since Laur really wanted to be his friend so badly. He was also a little suspicious that Bo and Danaë liked each other, so he teased Dan about it a lot. Just like how an older brother ought to.
Moira Wachacha , Kanagatucko, & Caroline Wicasa are the three emissaries who bore the bad news from The Great Tribe. Although Laurentin doesn't really hold them any ill will, they remind him of The Great Tribe's over-reaching authority and he can't help but be reminded of those negative memories when he thinks of them.
Uleyvsv Adahy was one of Laurentin's good friends, but they had a falling out when Laurentin decided to leave the Great Tribe and find his father. Laur isn't quite sure where they stand now since they left on uncertain terms.
Nayati Utina is Saqui's father and also equally intimidating, nonetheless respected
Archery (Beginner): his mother began teaching him archery, but quickly realized he wanted to know archery, not actually learn it. His patience for the craft is poor and he is apt to grow frustrated and give up quickly.
Hunting (Journeyman): Laurentin hunts with the tribe and finds it an acceptable activity, since it provides him with food, but doesn't necessarily enjoy it one way or another.
Dancing (Beginner): Possibly one of the few things Laurentin truly enjoys, though holds back most of the time since he tends to make up his own dances and the Great Tribe has its own very special ceremonial dances (which he, naturally, thinks are a little boring)
Cultural history (Beginner): Living in the Great Tribe means that Laurentin learned a lot of their stories, traditions, and way of life.
Horseback riding (Beginner): As with many members of the Great Tribe, Laurentin has been raised around horses and is comfortable riding them. He isn't overly confident in his abilities; he just knows that he can ride most horses and doesn't try to show off or pursue difficult mounts.
Loyal: Laurentin values his friends and loathes his enemies. Luckily for him, he doesn't have many enemies. However, befriending Laurentin means finding a friend for a long time.
Singing: Laurentin inherited his mother's lack of ability when it comes to singing. He has no vocal range and tends to sing out of tune.
Easily distracted: Laurentin has a rather poor attention span and seems to be quickly distracted by other things or topics. Anything different is usually more interesting than what is happening currently.
Anti-authoritarian: Laurentin seems to have an inherent dislike of authority, rules, and established ways of doing things. Usually, he reveals his dislike by accident by saying things without thinking about it first, but other times, he willfully breaks the rules if he doesn't like them.
Stubborn: Rather than listen to reason, Laurentin may stick to his principles -- or alternatively, his silly ideas -- and pursue what he thinks is right. Sometimes his course of action is correct, and sometimes it's not. This is the unfortunate other side to his streak of loyalty.
blah blah blah
Offering: what kind of stuff does your character trade?
Laurentin was born in The Great Tribe, the son of AniWaya leader Claudius Aston and his mate, Saqui Utina. He was born alongside his sister, Danaë Aston. Early into his mother's pregnancy, she broke her leg while traveling to The Great Tribe from AniWaya. The stresses of her broken leg and a difficult journey resulted in Saqui miscarrying four of the six puppies, leaving Laurentin and Danaë as the only surviving among their litter.
Laurentin was raised in the Great Tribe and yearned to journey to AniWaya to meet his father. In May 2015, he joined Yepa Sofia in her trek to the tribe. He ended up outlasting Yepa and continued his journey alone after Yepa did not continue. In September of 2015, he finally joined AniWaya as an Itse and spent his first few months getting to know his father and the tribe all the while Claudius pushed Laurentin to select a rank path.
In March of 2016, Claudius revealed that he intended to have Laurentin succeed him as the leader of AniWaya when he was ready. This spurs Laurentin to push harder in his path to becoming a scout and to move from the beginner to the skilled tier. Following Claudius' injury during a flood, in April, Claudius promotes Laurentin to the role of leader in AniWaya.
