1.  Characteristics

1.1  Appearance


Oleander’s eyes are a soft, luminous pink hue, seeming quite vibrant in comparison to the dusty rose color that limns her orbs and paints her nose. Her fur is pure white, casting her almost as an eerily translucent, faded version of her more saturated kin. In optime, her locks fall in straight sheets of fog-touched snow, which she keeps shorn in a neat, angled bob. A fringe of white, straight-cut bangs frame her brow. Her soft, plush fur is seemingly without blemish, a product of her neat grooming and obsessive attention to wound care. Oleander is very aware of and proud of her beauty, and she strives to maximize her display of each muscle, curve, and angle advantageously. For her, clothes are more about the opportunity to reveal what is underneath rather than to be marks of opulence on their own. She strives to wear items that accentuate her form but also allow her to move, favoring high but loose skirts and low-cut sleeveless tops. For more formal occasions, Oleander enjoys form-fitting, high-collared, long-sleeved, cuffed items. She prefers hues of cream, silver, gold, white, black, pink, and red. Her face is angular and sly-looking, with tall, pointed ears, a narrow muzzle, and a small but playful mouth. Despite her sensuousness, Oleander’s body is corded with lean, capable muscle, the result of her lifelong dedication to the dance in all its forms.



  • Lupus: 18 in (~46 cm) ↔ 22 lbs (~10 kg)
  • Secui: 36.5 in (~93 cm) ↔ 110 lbs (~50 kg)
  • Optime: 5 ft 9 in (69 in / ~175 cm) ↔ 167.5 lbs (~76 kg)


None visible; Oleander is careful with wound care to minimize scars.

Tattoos & Piercings:


  • Speech: Lilting soprano voice that can be in turns sultry and playful; very formal and diplomatic, belying her education and observant eye
    • Fluent in French
  • Unique Scent: Chamomile, flowers, soap, wild rue, pine
  • General Posture and Body Language: In optime, easy and graceful, all motions maintaining a fluidity that gives the impression of effortless care—frequently smiles and generally presents as submissive and acquiescent; in lupus or secui, alert, skittish, lively, and curious

1.2  Personality

Summarized: Deferential, observant, discrete, flirtatious, ambitious, patient, calculating, empathetic, capricious, passionate

Oleander seeks passion in all things, and her greatest passions are dance and courtly intrigue. Having been raised to think about her body’s uses and appearance from a young age, she is highly conscious of it and is constantly orchestrating it into its most attractive or efficacious lines and shapes, depending on her purpose. Since becoming independent, dance has given her a powerful outlet of expression, allowing for punctuated moments of chaos and revelry to disrupt her normally cool composure. This is also why she frequents lupus in quiet moments alone; when the show is over, Oleander reverts to a wild thing, unconscious of the refined mannerisms ingrained in her training and upbringing. She relishes incertitude and conflict in these moments, the way they can make her feel alive and real in the immediate present. Paradoxically, the jackal also dreams of love, but she doubts her understanding of the emotion. She has been both loved and used in turn by her patrons, and has loved and used them in kind, but views “love” as the comfort of a good friend and “use” as the reliability of good tools. She imagines that real love doesn’t involve obsession, money, or power, or at least is extricable from those things, but she has never encountered it herself.

  • Motivations: Power, status, wealth, security, satisfaction, to add beauty to the world
  • Fears: Being unvalued, becoming physically disfigured or undesirable
  • Likes: Beauty, passion, desire, fine clothing and jewelry, planned events of all kinds, cleanliness
  • Dislikes: Destructive desires, inattention to detail, abuse of power
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral (with Good tendencies)
    • Obeys all personal contracts.
    • Will not harm others for profit.
    • Respects the laws and authority figures of the community and nation.
    • Has few close friends and would never betray those she has.
  • Sex: In part due to experiences in her profession, Oleander has a disdain for overly violent and uncontrolled males, and sees them as a blight on the world.
  • Social Class: Oleander has complex feelings about the wealthy; as a courtesan, she has spent time in close proximity to them, and has seen all their flaws, but she still aspires to their wealth, status, and power.
  • 3 on the Kinsey scale: "Equally heterosexual and homosexual."
    • Oleander can find beauty in most, whether internal or external, and her propensity to revel in desires—both her own and those of others—makes her easily attracted to and entangled with willing parties.

Oleander has become a scion of desire, following its pull where it calls her. She regards this as a gift enabling her to share her patrons' desires, and views fulfilling various desires as a sacred act, whether it be the pleasures of the bedroom or the machinations of the mind. For Oleander, lines are drawn when desire derives from directly harming or impinging on another's goals or happiness, and she fines the outer reaches of libertinism repellant as a result.


Oleander consumes alcohol in moderation but otherwise prefers to remain quite sober; to have an impaired mind and will is dangerous and only leads to folly.

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: Business, Pleasure, and Politics
  • Courtesan:
Oleander has extensive experience in courtly manners and graces, and thus has made an adroit and appealing companion at many dinners, fetes, and pleasure spaces. She is polite, well educated, and observant, gifted in intuiting and fulfilling the desires of others. The nature of her work also makes her excellent at keeping the secrets of others, as she views these things as revealed to her in sacred trust that she would never betray.
  • Politic Merchant:
Oleander has more recently turned her attention toward building mercantile relationships with traders and nobles alike, relying on her beauty, charm, and keen eye to help her make deals benefitting both the Thistle Kingdom's coffers and her own interests, whether those are related wealth, status, or power.
  • Diplomat:
As her mercantile connections increase, Oleander seeks to leverage these skills toward diplomacy, understanding the competing desires of factions on various levels (merchant troupes, loner bands, larger packs/political bodies) to turn them to her own, and Salsola's, advantage. Pleasing and prim in her appearance, with the manners and bearing of higher castes and the ambition of someone who has had to fight for every inch of her prestige, she is learning when to bend and where to hold, and looks forward to testing these skills with increasingly higher stakes.
  • Event Planner:
Related to her penchant for beauty and her keen eye for fine things, Oleander is skilled in creating mood in a setting through choices in lighting, costume, decoration, props, and other sensory input. She regularly updates or shifts the look and feel of her salon, the Hidden Pearl, using these skills, to reflect the seasons or a theme she enjoys, and also uses these skills to set the stage for positive interactions with patrons, politicians, and merchants.
Auxiliary Skills and Hobbies
  • Tumbling and Dancing:
As Oleander's body is still her primary commodity, she keeps it fit with rigorous training in tumbling, which expanded into enjoyment of dance. Oleander feels most free when she's exerting herself in these exercises. She's also familiar with a common array of simple courtly dances, and is a quick study of bodies in motion.
  • Reading, Writing, and Contracts:
As part of her courtly training, Oleander is proficient in reading and writing, and has a basic understanding of contracts and agreements made, first regarding the terms of service for herself, and later, other trade agreements.
  • Bilingual:
Oleander is fluent in French, and learned it alongside English when she was raised in the Court of Pearls.

2.  History

CHAPTER 1 / The Pink Pearl
Court of Pearls
Duration: Apr 2022 – Sep 2023
Ranks: Courtesan (Feb 2023 – Sep 2023)

Oleander was raised as a courtesan—groomed to present and serve. She was sold into the Court of Pearls when she was a few months of age, prior to her first shift. She does not remember the faces of her parents, and she does not know their names; her surname was provided to her by the court. It is rumored that her purchase price was substantial. During her upbringing, she was taught to provide elegant table service, mix and apply cosmetics, dress hair, style wardrobe, speak politely, dance, tumble, show deference, intuit the desires of patrons, and reflect that desire for their pleasure. Upon her first birthday, Oleander was put into service, and her virgin price was high, given her presentation as a rare “pink pearl” due to her albino coloration. A portion of the cost of service covered a small part of the debt owed to the court; this debt represented the price of her training and board. Every subsequent patron fee would contribute some until her debt was paid, at which point she could choose to remain within the court or strike out on her own. Her first patron had been a wealthy wolf, adorned in rich velvet clothes and gold accessories, whose demanding but ultimately kind patronage set a high standard for Oleander’s own taste in lovers down the line. When Oleander’s debt was paid, she decided she’d like to see what the rest of the world was made of and how far her skills would take her, understanding that the court’s pink pearl would be welcome back provided she returned capable of service.

CHAPTER 2 / Wildling
Duration: Dec 2023 – Present
Ranks: The Warden (Apr 2024 – Present)
  • The Tradesman (Mar – Apr 2024)
  • The Confidant (Feb – Mar 2024)
    • Merchant Faction Pledge (Feb 2024 – Present)
  • The Family (Jan – Feb 2024)
  • The Associate (Dec – Jan 2024)
Jobs: • Mercante (Merchant)

• Scenografa (Event Planner)
• Condivisore (Sharer)

Oleander arrives in the territory of 'Souls and has several encounters with members of loner bands and other packs, primarily Salsolans, though she does not know it. She begins taking some of her old patrons in the unclaimed parts of Amherst, and here, she begins to establish the Hidden Pearl, her very own salon. This attracts the attention of a clever and careful thief and spy, Níndari, who eventually recruits Oleander to Salsola under the guise of Osoa, a poor waif seeking better straights alongside Oleander. With the ruse dispelled, Oleander enters Salsola with open eyes and new ambition.

CHAPTER 3 / The Ghost

Arriving in Salsola, Oleander struggles with how to wield her beauty and worldliness. Feeling more insecure and submissive than ever, she seeks to make herself smaller and to dull her shine. Still, her quiet ambition spurs her to steadily climb the ranks as well as fill several roles befitting her social and creative skills. Unfortunately, Oleander experiences a setback when she is duped by a would-be patron who attempts to rob and kidnap her at the Hidden Pearl. She's saved by her dear friend Tweed Valentine, and is more determined than ever to expand her business opportunities while remaining secure.

CHAPTER 4 / Permanent Radiant

Other Relations

  • Farron Belgrave is a friend and fellow merchant that Oleander enjoys spending time with.
  • Skadi Eternity is a lover of Oleander's with a sadistic penchant appealing to Oleander's need for abject subservience in a time of internal turmoil and self-suppression.
