Demure and meek by expression, Peony Braithwaite is anything but how she's initially presented. She's a young coyote of the Braithwaite family, an heiress to not one but two mogul empires (once by proposed marriage, the other by birth), and every bit as quick and cutthroat as needed, with the charisma and smiles needed to bolster her public favor. She's articulate, well educated and versed - and more than willing to sway her opposition with honey than vinegar, and swear at them beneath her breath.
Ambitious and daring beneath the delicate exterior, little Peony is not afraid to take risks.
And if that doesn't work out, she's a hell of a shot with her bow.
Del Cenere Gang members may assume and reference the following without discussion/asking:
seen with her husband and children
seen with Nazario being leader-y
Species: Through and a through, one hundred percent coyote.
Fur: Soft and gentle to the touch, her fur is of medium length for a coyote.
Optime Hair: Long and semi-curly, with what looks like “beach waves” when it’s actually down. Colored Wafer.
Facial Features: Peony’s outward expression is meek and unapproving. She doesn’t show face to anyone, and gives a “bitch” face persona.
Build and Size: Confidant, proper and lean. Peony carries herself with an attitude that makes others drawn into her presence. Utterly pristine, utterly well-groomed, deceivingly impossibly so. How come there's never a hair out of place? She stands at only five feet four inches and one hundred and thirty two pounds, yet seems to be the biggest one in the room. Peony is a proud wolf.
Lupus: Small, dainty, and utterly wraithlike. Peony is slight and quick, and while she's rarely in this form, she uses the diminutive stature to slip beneath the radar and eavesdrop from hiding places.
Secui: Hardly larger than her lupus form, the secui is gangling and uncoordinated, unsuited for either her subterfuge.
Optime: Her everyday form she prefers. Standing at five foot four inches. Humanized and well-groomed, Peony takes to two legs like a fish to water. After all, it's hard to be the Braithwaite's best sharpshooter without hands.
Humanization: Highly humanized, not a hair out of place.
Scars: a small scar on her forearm hidden beneath fur. Easily felt, but hidden from the naked eye.

Uses this as a daily
Speech: Papery and softly-spoken, and smooth as butter. She's succinct and knows how to weave her narrative - a natural speaker who knows when to keep her trap shut. She does have a vague southern-bell pattern to her speech, sugarplum.
Scent: Coyote, hyacinth, lemongrass, cedar.
Quirks, Gestures, Etc.: tends to hold herself above all else, in a very “proper” yet somehow kind manner. She never has a hair out of place, and is always dressed for whatever occasion. Never ill-prepared for anything.
General Posture and Body Language: Peony's posture is impeccable, obviously an inherited trait from debutantes past. Her presence is comforting, but vaguely distant, non-demanding but unyielding, like a politician's right-hand lady. Peony is unshakably calm and pleasant on all counts.
Solid, controlled, and seemingly the most impeccably groomed at all times. How does she do it? Peony is a kind soul, who has a knack for hooking her fingers into things most others think she cannot handle. She proves them wrong on a daily basis.
Something: afraid of failing her family and making them look foolish.
Something: afraid of making a fool out of herself
Species: wolves aren’t high on her list of folks she gets along with.
Non-Luperci: no definite decision on them.
Gender: thinks women are superior.
Sexuality: believes heterosexual marriages are the way to go.
Age: children are the rise of our generations, she loves all children.
Heterosexual with slight bi tendencies(internally). Peony is very sexually active and likes to make remarks around those she’s close to. Otherwise the Braithwaite stays rather silent in regards to sexuality as a whole.
Likes: dresses, bow and arrow, shooting, horses.
Maybe a BIG DISLIKE HERE
She is a secret tobacco and cannabis user.
Peony believes in God, the one and only. She is very religious and doesn’t really preach it onto others but is open if anyone asks. She doesn’t think others Gods’ are bad, but doesn’t care for them. She isn’t impolite so she will listen.
Meredith Braithwaite: Meredith is her grandma who she fears and looks up to the most. She does everything she does for her grandma and to be the "perfect" heir. Having been groomed since she could walk, Peony would not want even her worst enemy to get in the middle of her and her grandma's "death stare". She often finds herself repeating a lot of things her grandma would say. Wants nothing more than to make her proud, and her entire family.
Felicity Bishop her mother is her biggest advocate. She looks up to her mom, and supports her with every ounce of her being. She does not wish to ever let her mother down, and her mother's words are like law. She is mommies little angel and daddies little girl/prodogy.
Alric Braithwaite her father is another one of her idols. He is the strongest man she knows and doesn't know why he does what he does or puts up with Carlo, but she has no ill will towards her father. She does not understand their betrothal to one another, but otherwise, accepts her duty as her grandmothers/fathers "prodogy", as he so calls her. She makes sure she is dressed and pressed properly just as her father has done most of her life. Daddies little girl, is what she is and always will be. Her sister is often times jealous of how much time they spend together, but Peony thinks it's just because she's the youngest/littlest of the two.
Mannuelle Del Mar he and her grew up in Palisade together, he isn’t the worst guy out there but definitely isn’t her favorite. She often times takes into consideration that their grandparents once fueded on these lands, and often times can't wait to marry into the kingdom just to prove to her father she can be the best. Their betrothal has made things awkward seeing as she loved him as a brother. Now their love is supposed to be eternal and blah blah blah. She thinks he and Andrez are really annoying but they’re honestly two people she cares about the most. Though she will never admit it. Upon her arrival into DcG and her run in with him, she is angry at him for leaving her in the first. Peony is stuck in betweeen loving him and her grandmother in her ear at all times, even when she's away from her family.
Andrez Del Mar he and her grew up in Palisade together. She has no ill words towards him. He and Mannuelle teased her growing up. She loves him like a brother. She cares about him the most but will never admit it.
Morrigan Archeron Morr is Peony’s best friend, one she entrusts with damn near every secret she has. Morrigan is closer to her than anyone else she has ever known.
Hosea Courtright a shoulder to lean on that she has had from since she as six months. He has endured her "vents" albeit remaining completely professional. Hosea is a good companion and they often times spent days sitting doing nothing, and/or adventuring around Palisade. Peony thinks highly of Hosea and tends to take a liking to this coydog. Odd, although sweet, she has nothing but kind words for him.
Aldora Knight one of her first friends ever, and an official proper lady. Looks forwards to many years of friendship.
Fennore another close compadre, of which she will look forwards to having many cups of tea with.
Neutral / Negative
Juleo del Bosque this gentleman she met, he was very odd and humorous. Hanging out with Hosea sometimes she had nothing really to say bad or good about him. Nice enough.
Belinda Braithwaite although they were once close, Belinda since, has been given a disgrace in Peony’s book. The two sisters are at war; this much is apparent.
Daniela Ardoix a nice gal who had a positive and friendly demenor towards Peony she thinks she is pretty, their relationship is neutral because they hadn't spent a lot of time together. Mainly meeting and greeting in the towns center, and friendly chit-chats. She remembers her and her sister for their eyes, striking and of amazing shades of greens.
Sofia Ardoix she is very memorable by her eyes, Peony had a plesant meeting with her at one time, and has a more neutral realtionship with her than anything.
Carlo Del Mar she is very cautious around this man, and though he is her future father-in-law she is very weary around him. Her standing with him is debatable and in general she thinks he is a dangerous man. The few times they have been around one another, he was very harsh and brash, she doesn't like him and he gives her the heeby-geebies. However; she will not tread on his toes, and does her best to be very polite and make his sons happy, and make him happy. After all, momma always said keep your friends close and your enemies closer.
