OOC Information

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

  • Seeing Crow…
    • …hunting and sprinting through the woods in her Lupus form.
    • …practicing archery or experimenting with arrows.
    • …hanging out with her crow, Chanticleer, possibly keeping him from serenading harassing chickens.
  • Having a message or item delivered by Crow, as long as it's a straightforward mission (e.g. a summons for another Salsolan) -- nothing plot-intensive (e.g. an expected ambush, a distant journey, something hush-hush) without discussing with me!
Plot Opportunities
  • Crow is seeking a new mentor in archery and hoping to expand her scouting and combat skills in general!
  • She has sticky fingers -- maybe you're her newest victim? Need something to go missing, or want a trinket to turn up?

1.  Characteristics

1.1  Appearance


Dark fur with earthen hues, and light blue eyes. Curly to wavy fur, shorter on the face. Half-flopped ears. Long legs and deep chest reminiscent of a lurcher. In Optime, curly hair is often tamed by braids and often contains crow feathers and the occasional bead or bauble. Willowy build but fast, with the powerful shoulders of a swimmer. Very skinny and underfed.

  • Speech: Feminine, but quite loud; sounds a bit younger than she is. She has a tendency to get excited and rush through her words, tangling them together.
  • Scent: Poplar, spruce, rabbit, crow, sedge, speedwell
    • Disguised: Dogwood, river water, carrion, fishy
  • Physical Expression & Quirks: No personal space. Constantly moving.

1.2  Personality

Summarized: Fierce, brave, impatient, friendly, compassionate, deluded, troubled

First impressions of Crow often paint her as being overly talkative, nosy, and immature. Indeed, she is prone to pestering new acquaintances with questions and rambling, but this is out of a keen loneliness and desire for friendship. Signs point to her being under-socialized due to her tenure as a loner, raised by an asocial parent. She has a tendency to "latch on" to others, though once she befriends someone, she is fiercely loyal.

She is a compassionate individual willing to be there for those in need, and unafraid to jump in to help someone. Something of a wildling, she embraces physicality and enjoys activities such as hunting, running, and swimming. She just has a tendency to invade personal space, too. She comes across as impatient, unable to stand still or tolerance boring silences for very long.

There are depths to Crow, obvious in her strange secretiveness and random mood swings; she can shift from gleeful to despondent in a moment. Other quirks include an apparent disregard for her own hunger or safety.
