Species: Valencia has all the classic Wolf features (rounded ears, bushy tail), and it would be impossible to tell that she has any dog heritage at all just by looking at her.
Fur: Her fur is soft and silky, with a light undercoat.
Optime Hair: Long, loose coils that fall to the small of her back.
Facial Features: Valencia has broad triangular ears cupped inward slightly, an angular face, narrow muzzle, and bright expressive blue eyes.
Build and Size: Valencia is tall and thin, void of curves. She has long legs that suggest she's built more for agility and speed than strength. Due to her upbringing, Valencia is dainty and polite, and she carries herself properly - like a lady should.

Sepia Skin colors patches near her underarms and 'hips'. Also colors her ears.
Valencia is curious by nature, and it often gets her into trouble. Though, it is not to say that Valencia doesn't learn from these experiences; she just "learns the hard way". Not all of her learning comes from these experiences, however. She is well-versed in reading and writing, and can often be found reading many books.
She is a smart, social wolf who has been taught impeccable manners. Even when caught at her most mischievous, she will naturally revert to politeness toward adults in particular. Sometimes this lapses in favor of mischief or playfulness. She believes in chivalry and has strong feelings about males treating females with respect. Val has an innate awareness of body language and is quick to speak up if she feels she is being mistreated. This is the one area where her politeness occasionally wanes: there are times that she speaks too bluntly about how she feels regarding someone else's behavior.
All in all, she is a perfect balance between her parents. A polite, well-mannered lady with a sharper edge.

Valencia is a recovering alcoholic ever since her mother had disappeared. She tries, but often fails, to stay away from alcohol.
Valencia would be considered "agnostic" at this point in her life. She knows about Voodoo from her mother but wouldn't consider it her religion currently. She does believe in some sort of higher form (in a general way), though.
Rio Marino is Valencia's mother. They were very close when Valencia's was younger, but since Rio's disappearance and return, their relationship is strained. Valencia is still trying to work through the pain and the relief, and all the trouble that came with it. She doesn't know how to feel about her mother's long absence.
Estella Butler is Valencia's bestfriend. They have played together multiple times when they were younger, and even now Valencia's considers Essie to be the one person she can talk to in the time of need.
Aithne Marino is her younger brother. She helped raise him once their mother left, and developed a very strong bond with him. She is very protective of him.
Liam Catori is Valencia's father. Valencia looks up to him as her hero who could do no wrong. She was definitely a "daddy's girl". After he left to join his sister in the states, Valencia misses him dearly. For a while, she had been deserted by both her parents.
Basil Butler is Valencia's boyfriend. Even though they have vast differences, she has a lot of affection for him. Currently, they are testing the waters and seeing where the "relationship" thing goes.
Charlotte Haskel was the Queen and Valencia's aunt. She looked up to her as an awe-inspiring figure and admired her greatly.
Tasha Takekuro is her cousin, and the one who taught her about wind direction and its relevance to hunting.
