Lotai Stryder is a First Cadet in Casa di Cavalieri.

Born to Casa di Cavalieri's Lune, Cedric Stryder, and Kai Wolfe-Denahlii, Lotai came into the world along with five other littermates. His upbringing was a peaceful one under the love of his mother and father. When he was just a few months old, Lotai was abducted by The Ember League alongside the rest of his litter.

After his rescue, he was never the same. He has just recently emerged from his self imposed seclusion to sharpen his skills before his First Blood. He has discovered a self-confidence far greater than what was expected.

1.  Characteristics

1.1  Appearance


Lotai is quite the even mix of wolf and dog when it comes to his heritage. In terms of bone structure, his face is shaped more like a wolf's with a boxier and squared off jaw and high cheekbones. His dog blood has affected his ear shape uniquely in that they are narrower and taper to sharper points. The remainder of his body is not as blocky, not resembling a wolf as much beyond the broadness of his shoulders. His overall build resembles his mother's with elegance and grace supplemented by his father's build of strength and substance.

Lotai is far more humanized than feral. He partakes in the occasional feral romp, especially while he is still young, but vastly prefers dressing formally and following high standards that he has set for himself. He does not inherently look down on those following a feral lifestyle as much as he fails to understand it on a personal level. He bathes frequently and disguises his scent with various herbs. In addition, he takes care to keep his mane styled and his fur florally fragrant. He is obsessive about appearing immaculate and presentable... When he is not wearing a disguise intended to blend into the crowd as a nobody, that is.

He is only inches taller than his father in Optime form, coming in at 6'9" when he is fully matured. Stretched over this tall frame is a midnight black pelt. Interrupting this is a sweeping white stripe over his shoulders and back and a splash of white on his throat. Lining his eyes and eyebrows, there is more of this stark, snow white. Finally, this color can be found on the very tip of his tail, cheek fur, elbows, and the insides of his ears.

A stripe of white on his forehead gives way to a rare shock of white amongst the black in his Optime form. His hair is voluminous and wavy, and he keeps it long. He needs the length to style it in such luxurious and unnecessary ways.



  • Lupus: 25 in
  • Secui: 40 in
  • Optime: 6 ft 00 in

1.2  Personality

Summarized: Charismatic, polite, graceful, confident, outwardly positive in attitude, creative, spiritual, ambitious, individualist, opulent, inward pessimistic view, dogmatic, vainglorious, materialistic, perfectionistic

Upon first meeting, Lotai is stoic. He is tactical with the use of his words and overly well-spoken, having a strong preference to not be the first speaker in a conversation. He may feel comfortable making exceptions to this if it is for an express purpose, such as for conducting a trade or similar business. In such situations, he defaults completely to formality and chivalry. By a majority of the time, he ultimately remains quiet during first encounters until he can get a read on others. Only then does he open his mouth, for Lotai is a social chameleon. Lotai mimics those he comes into contact with, and more often than not, it is completely subconscious and difficult to control. In recent months he has come to embrace it in order to cope with the unstable identity this tendency inflicts him with.

Due to being kidnapped once at a young age and losing his brother Tokhakka, Lotai fears on a subconscious level what others think of him. Feeling others' eyes on him has made him anxious after The Ember League's occurrence, for the conflict stemmed from what Lotai perceived to be a miscommunication. As he views it, his kidnappers' hatred of his father and pack wound up so misplaced due to a poor first impression. Since then, Lotai adjusted himself accordingly. He was much more quiet in the immediate period following his and his littermates' rescue, withdrawing into himself and his retreating into personal fantasy. He explored grandiose daydreams the most, ones where he was a charismatic and likable individual.

He feels safest when he is in control of a social situation and feels that his reputation is protected. As such, he is somewhat vainglorious when it comes to his own appearance. He preens himself in order to look his best, and lies compulsively to present his best face. In order to put his best foot forward with impressions, he has taken up the skill of a tailor. He crafts elaborate ensembles for himself so that he may draw attention when he wants to, and creates unassuming disguises for when he desires to remain unnoticed. All he hopes for is to fit in, no matter where he is.

His empathy for others was damaged during the conflict, though this does not at all mean that he is without compassion. He simply struggles to fully comprehend what others are feeling. Not cold at all, Lotai is very warm and personable in demeanor, having become very skilled at putting others' concerns to rest. He has worked hard to improve his speechcraft, wishing only to be able to persuade others to see things from his perspective. As a result, he has become skilled with mercantile work. He values materialism as well, so it has reasoned to follow that he has become something of a collector. He actively enjoys every part of the act of striking a fair bargain: the social game, the examination of the goods, and the presentation.

Lotai can be obsessive when it comes to his interests, relationships, and his very self. When he grows absorbed in his work with sewing or trading, it can be difficult to get him to switch tasks. He often refuses to be distracted unless it is something important. With regard to his relationships, he fears losing his loved ones most of all. He reassures those he cares about and consistently fights for them with loyalty. Whenever he offends another, he is dogged in pursuit of making it right. Whether that means making it up to them genuinely or dogmatically persuading them into believing that nothing was wrong in the first place varies.

Finally, when it comes to his own identity, Lotai looks to sculpt himself into someone perfect. Such a thing is an impossible goal, and in the process of attempting it, he has lost himself.

  • Motivations: Ascend the ranks, grow his skills
  • Fears: Kidnapping, feeling out of control, reality
  • Likes: Fantasy, daydreaming, sewing, diplomacy
  • Dislikes: Imperfections
Biases (Below are just a few common examples! Add/remove biases that apply to your character!)
  • Packs & Bands: Lotai is ultimately loyal to Casa di Cavalieri. He is intrigued by Salsola & Midnight Krewe. He admires his home pack's ally, Del Cenere Gang.
  • Species: Does not look down upon any one species. Is inclined to be wary of any who do.
  • Non-Luperci: Lotai knows little of them.
  • Sex & Gender: Respects all genders and sexes equally. Has no bias against any.
  • Sexuality: Lotai is still exploring his sexuality, and is currently open to any experience.
  • Age: Respects his elders.

Lotai's faith is in his family's clan beliefs.


Is curious about all of them.

2.  History

Casa di Cavalieri
Duration: Mar 10 2022 – Dec 2022
Ranks: Reticent (Mar 2022 – Present)
  • Previous rank (DATE - DATE)
Co-Ranks: TBD

Lotai was born into a happy family and the caring hands of his pack, Casa di Cavalieri. He came into the world alongside his five littermates: Dagon, Tegan, Tor, Pandora, and Tokhaka. Life was peaceful and kind to him for his first months of life. Cedric Stryder and Kai Wolfe-Denahlii were incredibly supportive, loving and attentive parents. They showed him that the world was a safe and wonderful place, attending to his and his siblings' needs with love. The Youth Fair bolstered the growth of each pup, Lotai included.

When Lotai was a few months old, sudden tragedy struck Casa di Cavalieri. A man named Booker Dalton approached Lotai's father with a strange favor to ask. He was after revenge, and Cedric turned his request down. He had realized Booker was after one of their own, Eros Damaichu. Although the man left (albeit upset to be spurned), he did not stop there.

Lotai's adoptive brother, Parzival the mountain lion, was attacked during a patrol. He called for help, drawing Cedric Stryder away from his pups. Whilst the attackers managed to slip away, Lotai's mother was knocked out cold. As for Lotai himself and his littermates, Booker's associates kidnapped all six of them. They held the pups hostage on the Cavaliers' ship, the Avalon. The asking price for the ransom was Eros Daimaichu, the man Booker still sought.

The Cavaliers agreed to exchange Eros for their leader's pups, but fulfilling the ransom was a guise; they had planned a counterattack. The finer details of the ensuing battle remain foggy in Lotai's memory, but he knew one thing at the end of it: Tokhaka, Lotai's brother, had vanished over the side of a cliff.

He was helpless to stop it.

Lotai took it hard, just as the rest of his litter had. After the loss of his brother, Lotai turned completely inward for a considerable time. He coped with the religious and spiritual practices of his family. He took to excessive fantasizing about a world where he was not helpless, a world where he was in control. He focused on his mentorship with Roza Hushhowl, his hobby with sewing, and his increasing interest in persuasion & bartering.

Slowly, he exited his quiet shell and lonely isolation. His family had successfully coaxed him out, cracking open the geode that was his mind. He still has a reflective exterior in that he is a total mimic, but he is now much more comfortable expressing himself with confidence and relying on his family. He pursues his interests with zeal and renewed vigor.

3.  Relationships

  • Parents: Lotai looks up to both of his parents. He takes more after Kai in some ways, but aspires to greatness like his father's.
  • Siblings: Lotai loves all of his siblings. He is closest to his littermates, but this is only because his younger siblings are new to the world.
