Viridian Rose Soul (briefly known as Wither Rose Soul) is a coyote hybrid living in the Citadel.

Born the only daughter to a traveling merchant and submissive, bitter woman, Viridian had to learn to defend herself early on in life as her three brothers decided she was to be their designated punching bag, tormenting her endlessly. When she decided to abandon them, out of spite, she took on the stupid nickname they gave her as a middle finger to her mother: thus, Wither Rose wandered into 'Soulsland, crashed with her uncle Jandro for some time, and tumbled, quite literally, into the Realm of New Caledonia.

She remained there for just shy of a year, and though a contributing member of the pack (and an unwilling ward of the sub-leader, Fennore), her substance use took off during this time. She also met a questionable character, Rand Coara, who took full advantage of this. Only after many, many dalliances in the dark did Wither realize she was being strung along — and, in a drunken, crossed haze, she attacked the Priest of Nin during a pack-held wedding, which led to her swift demotion and imprisonment in the Underthing.

Fennore was able to grant her freedom under the pretense she could never return. With little choice, Wither did so, choosing to leave the problematic moniker behind and resume her true identity. Once again Viridian, she met a nice redhead, Abilene Damaichu, who recruited her into Casa di Cavalieri. Things were looking up: she had cleaned up her act, cut back on the booze, and once again proved her mettle to a new set of leaders. And yet, the Knights could not replace the hole the Caledonians had left behind. Another year came and went, and Viridian offered to travel to Casa's outpost in Portland for a change of scenery.

It was here she met a man that would change her life forever. Yamato Okada was a trader and small-time opium dealer, though his golden rule was to never use his own supply. Viridian struck up a friendship with him, one that quickly turned into a blossoming romance — the first genuine relationship Viri had even been in that didn't revolve around intimacy. This, too, however, was not meant to last — falling back into old habits, Viridian convinced Matt to get high (on all manner of drugs) with her after a series of bad decisions. Where she had built up a sizable resistance after years of substance abuse, Matt had very little experience at all, very careful not to indulge in the pleasures he pushed through the streets of Portland.

He would overdose in Viridian's arms that night.

In complete and utter shock, Viri buried her best friend and drifted in and out of an opiate-fueled haze for several days, abandoning her duties at the Casa outpost. She came to find that she was pregnant, one last parting gift from the man she killed; and, in a panic, Viridian showed up at the Citadel's doorstep, where she had reconnected with the Isiltári some months prior. Fennore was, with lots of time and patience, able to assist Viridian with not just her rocky pregnancy, but the severe withdrawal symptoms that very well could've taken her life if left untreated.

Later that summer, she welcomed her two surviving children, Hinako and Gidora, and the little family has resided in Portland ever since.

1.  Appearance


Viridian is very clearly a hybrid, though her coyote heritage shines through the rest of her muddied blood. She is built to last, fairly muscular and tall, and she is mostly found in her Optime form. Her fur is of an average thickness, perhaps a tad thin, and it is somewhat smooth and glossy. Her Optime mane is thick and curly, but oftentimes it is pinned back in a messy bun.

Really, she isn't bad-looking, but Viri doesn't put much thought into her appearance. She often has brambles and twigs stuck in her fur, and her hair can appear a frightful, knotted mess.


  • Lupus: 25 in (63 cm) ↔ 40 lbs (18 kg)
    • Sometimes used. Thin, slightly. She is visiting this form a lot more recently to just run around and let off steam.
  • Secui: 40 in (102 cm) ↔ 130 lbs (59 kg)
    • Sometimes used. Hulking and oddly-proportioned, though she does make use of it occasionally to hunt.
  • Optime: 6 ft 2 in (74 in / 183 cm) ↔ 190 lbs (86 kg)
    • Commonly used. A whole-ass woman.


  • Claw marks across chest
  • Smaller nicks at the left side of her muzzle
  • Two marks on her left knee, one smaller mark on her right
  • Smaller claw marks on her left wrist

Show Wardrobe

  • Black lace up crop-top and harem-style pants
    • During warmer months, she is often unclothed. When it gets colder, she can oftentimes be found in this outfit; however, Viri is perfectly at home walking around in the nude and sees nothing wrong with it.
  • An alphabet cone shell necklace on a leather cord
    • Used to always wear this necklace as it was a gift from her suspiciously-absent father, though nowadays, she can take it or leave it.

2.  Personality


tl;dr: a walking disaster in the making.

Bold and brash, Viridian has the capacity to be about as lovely as old nickname. She is horribly self-centered unless she kind of likes you, in which case, she's a fast friend. Nevertheless, she's cripplingly self-assured and eager to prove herself to anything that moves that she's the best huntress in the world, amongst other things. She is likely to fall in and out of love on a whim, as well as partake in substances and the party lifestyle; she is unlikely to grow out of this with age. A dysfunctional upbringing means she has a reliance on these things to keep her going, and secretly, she wants the approval of her peers so she doesn't feel like as much of a screw-up.

With an addictive personality and an unbeknownst knack for self-destruction, Viri regularly walks a tightrope between reality and her made-up fantasy world in which everything is fine and she definitely doesn't have a drinking problem. And a smoking problem. And a sex problem. Amongst other things.


  • Demeanor: Blunt, high-energy, sarcastic, impulsive, combative.
  • Speech: voice ref — Lili Reinhart. pretty typical, alto-range; generally expressive.
  • Scent: Woods, cat, various game, Amon
  • Quirks, Gestures, Etc.: Tapping her chin when thinking, using her hands to talk; smirks a lot like the smartass she is. Eyebrow dance!
  • General Posture and Body Language: Relaxed and comfortable, doesn't usually stand to her full height (aka hunched), cool kid strut B)

2.1  Traits


  • Likes: Hunting, archery, annoying people, being a nuisance, ALCOHOL & DRUGS
  • Dislikes: Being told what to do >( Uppity people in general grate her nerves.


  • Packs: Salsola seems a little weird; meeting one of their slaves has put them in the "creepy" category.
  • Species: She takes pride in her coyote blood, but doesn't necessarily see any one species above another.
  • Non-Luperci: Do those... exist??
  • Gender: Unless they are eye candy, most men are pretty useless. This probably stems from the childhood bullying she went through and the fact her brothers (and her absent dad) were next to useless, so she hasn't been proven wrong yet with this hypothesis.
  • Sexuality: She doesn't have a strong grasp of what is "normal" yet, but presumably would find anything other than heterosexual partnerships a bit strange at first — more than likely, she wouldn't be terribly biased against them, though.
  • Age: Definitely hates old people. Puppies are neat, though! Until they're annoying.

Motivations and Fears

Wither is motivated by the pursuit of pleasure. That's... basically it. Sure, she wants to prove herself as a mighty huntress to everyone and anyone that'll hear her out, but just having a good time and forgetting the pressures of life tend to weigh out.

She likes to think herself as fearless, but she's not. Recognizing that she may have a substance abuse problem scares her. Losing the few friends she has scares her. But she's definitely not scared of overdosing or blacking out, which she ought to be cautious about — her priorities are all over the place, unfortunately.


Heterosexual, but with bi-romantic leanings. Her type is big strong bois, but not so strong that they can push her around; she is likely to be an assertive lover. Open to flings, though she is somewhat guarded and careful not to confuse romance for sex after her relationship with Rand.

Truthfully, she wants to find someone that actually cares about her and loves her for her, not for the sex, but she is too scared to even try at this point.


Her biggest vice, unfortunately. Viridian doesn't really know when to call it quits. She was known for wandering New Caledonia's City Square after-hours in a drunken stupor, and she has a penchant for dangerous cocktails of alcohol and marijuana and a few other smokables she's run into along the way. Her binge drinking and cross-fading activities indicate that she might be developing Alcohol Use Disorder or early signs of Substance Abuse Disorder concurrently.


Religion is kind of an afterthought; agnostic, more than likely, because religion was never a big thing in her household. Viridian has the vague concept of gods, but not specifics about any one deity. She heard about this guy called "Jesus Christ" from a drinking buddy once, and while she absolutely no idea who the hell he is, she often calls upon him in the form of an expletive. That's about as religious as she gets.

3.  Relationships

3.1  Family

Viri saw very little of her merchant father (daddy issues, anyone?), but she is not overly fond of her mother nor her brothers. Between her mother's unreasonably high expectations and her siblings' constant harassment, there's little wonder as to why she acted out so terribly in her youth. Still, she does miss them to an extent now that they're not around. Generally speaking, she's much more soft on her uncle.

Extended Family

3.2  Other Relations

Key Relations

  • If she ever sees Rand Coara again, she is gonna finish the job she started. She hates his fucking guts and looks back upon their relationship with disdain and regret. His gaslighting and manipulation fed into her substance abuse and subsequent downward spiral, and he is basically the reason she got banished from New Caledonia. She is very aware that he 100% does not feel bad about it and is never going to forgive herself for playing into his game for so goddamned long.

Notable Relations

  • Wally Sherman is something of a friend/frenemy, she reckons. When they first met, he was a part of Mistfell Vale while she was riding solo, but now they've both ended up in the same pack. Viri likes picking on him since he's a good sport about it and gives her a taste of her own medicine now and again, and she's relieved to have something of a friendly face now that she's starting from scratch again.
  • Eros Damaichu piques her curiosity and really seems to vibe with her. Sometimes he asks questions that are way too close for comfort, but that comes with the territory; much like herself, Eros is exceedingly casual, borderline dickish, and he has also made it very clear that he thinks Viri is hot — an attraction that goes both ways.

Minor Relations

  • Enemies: Rand Coara
  • Murders:
  • Significant Negative Acquaintances: Wrath

Past Relations

  • Fennore was once her mentor, and while they started on rocky terms, things eventually became tolerable and even occasionally friendly. However, when Wither began her relationship with Rand, things took a turn and Fennore berated her for her foolishness, as the Moonwraith could see as an outsider that her ward was being used. Wither didn't handled this especially well and told her to fuck off — but hindsight is 20/20. When Wither was sent to the Underthing for almost killing Rand in a cross-faded fit of rage, Fennore visited her frequently, trying everything in her power to help her, but Wither refused to admit fault or pay any further penance for her crime. In the end, Fennore extended the option for her to leave New Caledonia entirely instead of rotting away chained up in the Underthing, and while it was a difficult decision, Wither chose exile over imprisonment. Nowadays, she's unsure how to feel about Fennore and feels a little bad about how things panned out between them.
  • Calan's cute. She saved him from drowning once. He's also willing to party hard with her, which makes him an automatic 10/10. Good times.
  • Ierian Songthorn is just about the only luperci that's been able to put up with her antics (for now, anyway). She's soft on him because he helped nurse her back to health when she took a tumble, the whole reason she ended up staying in Caledonia in the first place. A drunken encounter, however, left them in a rather... interesting position, and Ierian actually ended up taking her V-Card!! Yeah, shit got crazy.
  • Toraberā Tanaka is a cool-ass dude and she thinks the world of him. They got on well because of their shared cynicism and interests, but unfortunately her relationship with Rand soured this friendship, since she ended up attacking him at Tora's wedding, only the most important night of his life, no big deal. He punched the shit out of her jaw in retaliation but still visited her in the Underthing, understanding where she was coming from. Tora is definitely one of the guys she will miss the most from her past life.

3.3  Minor NPCs

  • Gender: Male
  • Species: Cardinal
  • Date of Birth: 2020


  • Appearance: Pretty average-looking for a Northern Cardinal. He's got the works; red feathers, a little tuft on his head, red beak, and a black throat.
  • Personality: Asshole, real bird name unknown, has made it his sole mission to annoy the shit out of Viri whenever possible. This can include ruining her hunting trips, bothering her on patrol, or following her back to the Courthouse to poop all over her stuff. Oddly enough, his genuine hatred for her after a bit of fun seemed to morph into more light-hearted mischief, and eventually Asshole will become something of a companion rather than a headache.
