Is there something unique about a particular form of theirs (ex. super barrel-chested in Secui or very gangly looking)? How do they style their hair in Optime? Are they more “feral” or more humanized – are they largely naked or do they like to wear clothes?

Skills & Abilities:

  • Capable of Broken High Speech, though, will not speak to unfamiliar Luperci unless necessary
  • Currently being trained for scouting/patrolling, harassing, spying, and carrying coded messages

Description:

They are average-sized ravens.

Personality:

Intelligent, curious, mischievous, cooperative. Are submissive and loyal to Kamari Kaiser's Bones.

History:

In mid-summer 2021, the two ravens became separated from their original flock and family. They eventually found themselves in Salsola, where they followed Kamari Kaiser's Bones. They were drawn by her bravery, intelligence, and leadership, and began to gradually learn the ways of Luperci through her and her connection with Kamari. The two ravens were eventually named Fig and Plum by Kamari once they proved willing to work with her and perform simple tasks. When Mirko joined Salsola, his early days were spent following Kamari and learning about the Kingdom. During this time, he became an object of interest for the two ravens before he eventually befriended them and began to take on the Kamari's tasks in training them.


Walnut (Mule) (Show)
Basics

Active: Jun 2022 - Jan 2023

Description
  • Sex: Gelding
  • Species: Mule
  • Date of Birth: Unknown (spring 2014)
  • Size:
    • Height: 15 hands (60 in; 152 cm)
    • Weight: Average
  • Key Features: Lightly-colored face, short mane, large ears, shaggy coat
  • Coloration: Chestnut with cream undertones and face, white mane; dark brown eyes
OOC Assumptions
  • None
  • More Information »

Skills & Abilities:

  • Rider and pack-pony trained
  • Good endurance, moderate speed
  • Very strong and tough
  • Surefooted, patient, quiet

Description:

Walnut has a rich, chestnut-coloration with lighter, cream undertones. His face is also of a lighter hue than the bulk of his body, the coloration spilling down along his neck and resulting in a white mane. He appears to have some sort of draft-horse-like ancestry, as, though he did not gain their height, he gained their body-type; with somewhat thicker bones and a more robust, stout build. His fur is a bit longer than most, giving him a furrier look to him, particularly during winter time.
  • Gear: Western-style tack, leather saddlebags, various wool blankets (for riding)

Personality:

A docile, hardworking, and amiable creature, Walnut turned out to be a rather beneficial and surprising acquisition for Kamari. He is a non-dominate and very calm, gelded mule who tends to get along quite easily with other animals, which helps Kamari greatly with innate strength. He’s a gentle beast that enjoys working, and does great when riding or following another horse or caravan. Walnut seems to prefer the company of stallions or other geldings over mares, but enjoys play in general with any horse, with Luperci, or with Kamari’s cats. He has quite a bit of character when comfortable with someone, and may do quirky little things or show various signs of affection.
While he can be left alone for long periods of time without issue, and does not spook easily, Walnut gets very anxious if left alone at night. He does better when with another horse or with a Luperci nearby that he can see and sleep near.

History:

Walnut came into Kamari’s ownership in July of 2018 after she and a packmate killed his previous owners [M] when they were casing the Kingdom. He spent a small amount of time immediately after with Kamari’s father, Heine Kaiser, in Portland, where the breeder that Heine obtained Kamari’s main horse, Cedar, from assessed him. He was later returned to Kamari in October, when it was deemed that the mule would likely not cause any issues with her other male mount. He was introduced slowly to Cedar and Kamari’s husband’s mare, Seduction, and upon their acceptance, was allowed to roam with them in the paddock.
He appears to have been used as a pack horse for quite some time, and likely passed between a few owners. He may have been castrated very early in life, as he exhibits little to no stallion-like behaviors.
Velimir Voronin is currently aiding in his training to be more tolerant of conflict, and to be more suitable for scouting-type missions that Kamari may take him on.

Sandstone (Horse) (Hide)
Basics

Active: Jan 2023 – Present

Description
  • Nickname: Sandy
  • Sex: Mare
  • Species: Horse
  • Date of Birth: Spring 2010
  • Size:
    • Height: 16 hands (64 in; 163 cm)
    • Weight: Average

  • More Information »

Skills & Abilities:

  • Rider trained, and seems right at home even amongst merchant caravans
  • Smooth gait, makes her perfect for new riders and pleasure riding
  • Sure-footed, allows her to be a good companion to take cross-country
  • Moderate speed, excellent endurance

Description:

---
  • Gear: ---

Personality:

Sweet and easy-going, Sandstone is what many would simply describe as a, “good beginner horse.” She minds well, is docile, anything most Luperci would ask for. She can be playful at times, but can easily be brought back around with a stern voice or hand. Sandstone’s curious personality makes her ideal for introducing her to new things, however, it may sometimes be her downfall in certain situations. Likes: Apples, affection, being spoken to, playing, rolling around in dirt/grass, running. Dislikes: Being ignored, threatening Luperci in Lupus/Secui form (will kick or attempt to trample), rough handling (will buck you off and then make a victory lap around you)

History:

Sandstone was born wild, but was eventually caught and tamed with her mother from a young age. She grew up as a general riding horse, passing between a few owners as times changed. Eventually, she ended up in the hands of Velimir when he was passing through a town on his way to Portland. The two bonded and she has become something of a valuable companion to the old man.
  • Gave birth to Aspen, who was sired by Cedar, in late June 2021. Currently cannot be separated from it.
