Cole Eachan

SalsolaThis character is a Pack NPC of Salsola! Salsola

For more information regarding pNPC use, please see Salsola's NPC page.

Cole Eachan is a member of Salsola, ranked as a member of the Family. He is an aspiring equestrian, and spends most of his time working with the pack's horses.

A distant cousin to the de le Poer line, Cole grew up in the rolling hills west of Dublin, where his family raised horses. He was among the many children whose purpose was clear from birth — the farm needed workers, and like their parents and grandparents and so on, they would rise to fill these roles. Everything was simple, orderly, and planned...except for the foreign woman. She and her husband came from Airgid Gleann with a collective to trade. This was not uncommon, for traders often did business with kin to ensure things were done right.

Cole was still young but had been put in a saddle as soon as he was old enough to shift. Still, when he saw the blonde wolf face down one of their most temperamental mares, he was fascinated. Eager to impress these visitors, Cole made himself present — annoyingly so — and was shocked and delighted when they humored him. Salvia Eternity, as it turned out, was a master at grooming children. By the time Cole was old enough to be considered an adult, he had already decided to dedicate himself to the strange, mystical valley from where these visitors had come.

Much to his surprise, they did not invite him back — but instead set him forth on an expedition. Bearing letters and given signs to show his word was true, Cole did the most dangerous and frightening thing he had ever done. He packed up his things, said goodbye to his family, and sailed across the Atlantic.

When he landed in Portland, Cole sought out the Salsolans in Fort Preble. He was brought to Blair Eternity, who confirmed his letters and identity before welcoming him into the fold. He, along with a pair of other new Associates, Blanche Briarhart and Flint Gaumond, traveled to the Kingdom proper in the summer of 2020.

Appearance

Coloration Palette

  • A wolfdog who favors his domestic lineage, Cole nevertheless shows signs of his wild bloodline, especially in his powerful upper body and oversized paws. Cole has long, somewhat wiry fur, and it grows in thick during the colder seasons. His scruffy face and half-fold ears are further tell-tale signs of his origin, though his bright yellow eyes make him appear more wild than he truly is.

Key: Dabbler --> Apprentice --> Journeyman --> Master

  • Horse Husbandry (Journeyman)
Cole was born into a family whose business had long been based around horses. Even before he was able to shift, Cole was educated in how to behave around horses and understand their body language. He began riding when able, and is confident and strong enough to handle even the most disruptive horses. Most of Cole's experience is based around riding and ground control, though he has driven carts and plows before (he doesn't really like doing either).
With a good eye for horses, Cole is able to identify type characteristics, general health, and even approximate an animals age. He would be capable of training a green horse, though has never broken a wild one.
  • Carpentry (Dabbler)
Being part of a working farm meant that Cole had to do more than help with just the horses. He bounced around through several options before settling on carpentry, if only because he thought it would be something he could slack off on. As such, he didn't learn nearly enough from his fellow apprentices or teachers before departing for the new world.
Though he still tries very hard to avoid this sort of labor, Cole will reluctant assist others in the pack with general repairs.
