Larunda Mellon

Larunda Mellon (luh-ROON-dah MEL-lun) is a member of Salsola, ranked as an Associate.

She is the daughter of two dog-hybrid Luperci living in the busy trade city of London, England. Her father was a doctor that went to the market alot, her mother was a merchant with scholarly talents who occasionally dabbled in thievery on the side when she was unable to get an unbelievable deal for the price she wanted. When her mother accidentally crossed the wrong Luperci, her father defended her and patched up her injuries. Their relationship began from there, and the pair eventually had Larunda. Adventure and a change of pace had the couple deciding to travel when Larunda was only a few months old, and the family eventually wound up in North America. They traveled and traded until Larunda finally struck out on her own. She arrived in Portland, Maine in the the summer of 2020, and remained there until an opportunity had her deciding to join Salsola in the early spring of 2021.

Currently, she strives to become a well-known merchant and scholar within the pack, and is sponsored by Argive Hemlock.

Physical Description

Larunda shares many characteristics of Spitz-type dogs: her ears are notably small and triangular; her fur is perfect for northern winters, double-coated and smooth rather than long or feathery; her eyes, while large and expressive, are almond-shaped; and her tail has a tendency to lightly curl over itself when held in a dominate manner (more noticeable while she's in Lupus/Secui). She has a petite face and overall build, and has complimenting curves that are often described as being "perfectly proportioned" for her size. She keeps her hair cropped short, and has noticeable bangs that frame her face. Larunda is quite pretty, and her alluring smile can be quite deadly for even the coldest of hearts.
