OOC Assumptions

New Caledonia members may assume and reference the following without discussion/asking:

  • Seeing Sólveig...
    • ...foraging for medicinal herbs, bark, and roots throughout NC's territory.
    • ...helping out at the Circle of Athelas clinic in Haven.
    • ...interacting with bugs in a kind and friendly way.

Plot Opportunities

  • CALLING ALL BEEKEEPERS!: Sólveig loves all things creepy and crawly, but she is especially fond of butterflies and bees! I'm looking for someone to educate her on the medicinal uses of honey and/or introduce her to the idea of beekeeping so she can start a hive all her own!

3.1  Family Relationships

Family Tree: Stormbringer, Knight

Nieces & Nephews: —

Key Family Relationships

  • Merlin Knight: Sólveigs father. Following the death of her mother, Merlin raised her and her sister, Ingvildr, as a single father.
  • Ingvildr Knight: Sóli's only surviving littermate. Despite their differences, the sisters are thick as thieves and are rarely seen far from one another.
  • Kalypso Savoy: Sóli's aunt, and the mother of the majority of her cousins. After her mother's death, Kalyspo provided something of a mother-figure in her life.

Other Family Relationships

  • Gaia Dawnrunner: Another of Sólveig's aunts. Since they reside in the same pack, Gaia is one of the few who she knows personally.

Other Relationships

  • Teagan Stryder: Although not officially family, Teagan was Ingvildr's milk-mother after Thyri's death. Her role in Sóli's life will never be forgotten.
  • Naomi Stryder: Sólveig's milk-sister while she was being nursed by Teagan. She's been weaned for a long while now, but do such relationships ever completely dissolve?

February

Summary

Sólveig is born on the 12th of February alongside sisters Ingvildr Knight and Rúna Stormbringer. Born with a birth defect, Rúna passes away six days later. Her death is followed quickly by that of her mother, Thyri Dawnbringer, whose health had been in a steady decline since parturition. Their father, Merlin Knight, acts quickly to ensure the survival of his remaining two daughters and enlists the help of Teagan Stryder, who had recently given birth to a daughter of her own, to nurse them. Sólveig and Ingvildr spend the remainder of February in the Stryder-Ridley household.

September

Summary
