Defining Features

  • The Kido family are talented in many creative pursuits, often musical and artistic:
    • Hotaru can carve masterpieces from wood, both practical and decorative.
    • Adrian loves music, as he is a singer, guitarist, and flautist.
    • Faolan has a beautiful singing voice.
    • Skylee has a knack with painting, carving, singing and playing instruments.
    • Oakley is a singer and guitarist, with a knack for puzzle-solving.
  • The original Kido family were Common Grey Wolves, or Canis lupus lupus.
    • This gave them a larger size than other wolf subspecies and a typically grey coloration, with brown eyes reigning dominant.
    • In the second generation, there is dog hybridization; Skylee, Faolan, Ty, and Oakley have collie characteristics such as heterochromia of the eyes, and feathered fur around their joints.


The Kido family lived peacefully in the southern Canada. Hotaru and Adrian Kido were born on a summer night when the fireflies were at their peak. The twins were both born with great gifts in the arts that once nurtured, earned the twins the title of geniuses. While Hotaru excelled in woodcarving, Adrian found his skills in the art of music. During his first two years of life, he learned how to play several instruments (including the ocarina) and could sing with perfect pitch. His grandmother, who worked with him for a countless number of hours, nurtured Adrian’s talent for music. By the end of Hotaru's training under the tutelage of another pack member, she could craft wooden swords, intricate staves, and beautiful sculptures. Hotaru would also occasionally carve wooden instruments, although this was not something she excelled at.

During their first few years of life, the Kido twins were inseparable. Hotaru grew to become codependent on her brother and would often drag him off on her adventures. However, the peace their family enjoyed was not to last. Their father became greedy, and his search for more land drew them into a war. Adrian was brought on as his father’s right hand man, and only Adrian knew the depths of his father’s greed. He watched as his sister was trained in the art of fighting and how one by one, his family members died in the battles. As the final battle drew closer, it seemed as if the Kido family would win. But Adrian was not happy with the situation and soon anger overcame him. Just as the final battle started, Adrian thrust his sword into his father’s breast, killing the older wolf instantly. Screams broke out and the entire Kido pack was left at a standstill. The rival pack took advantage of the Kido pack’s confusion and charged. When Hotaru turned to face the incoming enemies, Adrian took advantage of the distraction to knock his sister out with a single blow to the back of her head.

Adrian took his unconscious sister aside and left her hidden for her own safety. Once the battle had finished, almost the entire Kido family was dead. Horrified at what he had caused, Adrian fled, leaving his sister unconscious. By the time Hotaru woke up, everyone else was dead. The female wolf did not come out unscathed, her vision was gone and she remained helpless on the field. She was permanently blinded, and only survived thanks to the help of a traveling nomad. Hotaru and Adrian were eventually reunited in Cercatori d'Arte, though their relationship is understandably strained.[1] They do not reconcile, and go about their lives separately.

Hotaru is rescued from a cougar attack by Levent Kartal, and develops a friendship with the loner. After a time she convinces him to join Cercatori d'Arte, and they share a short-lived romance that leads to the conception of a litter. Hotaru does not desire a mate, but is happy to welcome Levent into her home to be with their children. She gives birth to Aiden and Aysun, and for a brief time, all is perfect in their household. Sadly, the infants grew ill and neither survived. Hotaru buries the puppies and blames their death on Levent, who in his grief leaves the pack. Hotaru deeply mourns her loss and becomes depressed and bitter, falling heavily on her friendship with Dalgina and Ovidiu. It is not enough to stabilize her, and she deserts her home to wander once again.

Adrian had better luck than his sister in Cercatori d'Arte. His guilt over Hotaru's condition fades, and he is able to nurture his musical talent in the creative pack environment, while his charismatic and welcoming personality earned him many friendships. He fell head over heels for the fiery Kenna Foxleigh, and the two passionate lovers quickly became mates. He welcomes the birth of his children, Skylee Foxleigh and Faolan Kido. His strong-willed and high-ranking mate sparks his temper from time to time, but ultimately nothing stops him from loving her. His greatest trial arrives when Kenna lays with Honrin and conceives during her heat. Not knowing whether the puppies in her womb would be his or not pushed Adrian to travel briefly outside the pack. Unfortunately, this is when karma catches up with him. Adrian is captured by a roving band of slavers, and dragged away from all that he loves. His children Ty Kido and Oakley Foxleigh are born after his disappearance, alongside their bastard littermate Kjintora.
