Interested in joining Souls for the first time? Want another character in a pack you've never played? Are you interested in joining a pack that has existed since 2009 and has a rich cultural history and a wide swathe of personalities? Then you have come to the right place!
Cour des Miracles-Owned Adoptables
These characters are communally owned and can be used for roleplay by any other member of Cour des Miracles. On picking up a pNPC, you may find your character has quite a lot of acquaintances -- and has helped quite a lot of canines. However, there are also characters that are owned by the pack but are not currently pNPC's of the pack. These characters are often much more free-range but do not offer the same level of connection to the rest of the pack. Hit the button below to show adopting information as well as the contact form.
Cour des Miracles pNPC Adoptable Contract
This adoptable contract applies .
We may choose to re-adopt the character if you have:

dropped them for a long period of time (6+ months since character was dropped)
dropped them with only brief play (0 - 5 months, 0 - 100 posts, etc.)
been permanently banned from 'Souls
broken a specific term of the adoption contract
not picked up the character within the time limit given at the time of application acceptance.
This character must join Cour des Miracles. S/he is not permitted to leave Cour des Miracles except with explicit permission from the leadership.
Specific information regarding individual adoptables -- e.g., desired plots, etc. -- can be found on their Wiki pages.
All baubles (art, titles, icons, etc.) originally given with the adoptable return to Cour des Miracles if the character does.
Gift art and gift graphics are typically reclaimed with an adoptable. If you're attached to a graphic, let us know! We're flexible.
Commissioned and bought art is your property. New players must request your permission to use such items, even in the case of art customized to that particular character. You are welcome to give us permission to retain these items should you drop.
Titles and icons...
... earned via game points, contests, etc. are considered your property; however, you must request removal/transfer in a timely manner (1 month) after dropping the adoptable or they become property of the new player.
... purchased via the 'Souls store are considered your property and may be removed/transferred to your own character at any time.)
Description: Absent-minded, protective, creative, and soft-spoken. Myrtle is always moving around at a quick pace, talking with packmates, cleaning cages, or poking her head in to check on a sick or injured bird. She is bird-like herself in the way that she will flutter around a room and give each cage individual attention. She has a protective side when it comes to the animals, and in her eyes, the animals of the pack are as much kin to her as the canines.
Description: Charli is a trader in a gypsy caravan that has visited the Court several times. She is a very shrewd and somewhat snappy woman with a great eye for trading, trinkets, and deals. A big fan of baubles, she can be rather fiery.
Description: Marya Nezali is a guard in a gypsy caravan, skilled with archery, traps, and poisons. A relative novice in most combat, Marya is talented at creating slowing and sleeping poisons / potions. She doubles as the caravan's healer with a moderate grasp on healing herbs, though her talent is in decidedly more wicked variations.
Description: Mayne Hanzi is a performer in a gypsy caravan, skilled in fire-dancing and dagger-throwing. He is relaxed flirt that is a little over protective of his sister, Diane Hanzi. He is great at riling up an audience and showmanship, and seems to quite enjoy the spotlight.
Description: A lowcontent wolfdog from England that was raised as a guard and trader, forced into slavery following a shipwreck, now lives training to fight and struggling against a fear of stormy weather.
Description: A rather charismatic individual, Iris is the embodiment of a southern saleswoman with the ability to get whatever she wants. She can appear to be close to folk, and has an amazing memory for the stories of other people. Her connections to the merchant elite of her hometown means she is more than capable of acquiring goods for the Court, some of it less than savory.

Add Your Adoptable
As long as your adoptable is stated to be headed to Cour des Miracles, you prefer Cour des Miracles membership, they have family or plots related to Cour des Miracles, etc. -- they're welcome here! We're pretty inclusive. If you're really not sure, just ask.
If your character is listed anywhere, so we can update stuff or remove the stuff yourself.
Cour des Miracles picks featured adoptables and promotes them in a small image, which is displayed on the Cour des Miracles ranks, website, and Wiki pages -- along with anywhere else our members care to display them! Featured adoptables get a tweet posted about them, as well.
Add your adoptable to be selected for feature! Your adoptable can be selected multiple times as a feature until they are adopted.
We tend to feature NPC adoptables before non-NPC adoptables, but may also choose to promote non-NPC adoptables, too.
You can purchase featured status for your adoptable via the Cour des Miracles game.
Post to the Cour des Miracles Maintenance thread.
You must have your own 88 x 31 image. Request one if you do not already have one.
You absolutely MUST let us know if your adoptable is adopted. Seriously! It sucks to have adoptables who are already played occupying promotional space where other adoptables may be listed -- let us know when yours has been adopted, please.

Description: Percival is an orphaned runaway with dreams as big as his head. After a terrible incident where he lost his brother, he was taken in by Cour des Miracles, and has become the sometimes-reluctant protege of Skoll Haskel.
Description: The firstborn of his litter alongside OLucian? and Odalis, Solomon has taken on a "father figure" role to his siblings. While still young, he shows an interest in the healing arts and a powerful determination to improve the reputation of his family
