Art by Nico

Aithne's coat is a mixture of dark and light browns and tans, taken from both his parents. His underbelly is lighter, even with a bit of white under his chin, while his back, hind legs, tail, and forearms exhibit darker, brindled browns. However, despite having no relations whatsoever to the Catori family, he has brilliant, expressive green eyes that make him seem like he is one of them in some sort of way.

Build and Species

Due to Aithne's Jackal heritage, he is petite and stunted in height. He inherited his father's course, short Jackal fur and both his parents' skinny frames. He does not have much muscle, but that doesn't say that he can't ever have muscle if he worked at it - hard. He has large ears and a bushy tail, along with a narrow muzzle.

He is aware that he's different from his father, Liam Catori, but unsure why.

Forms

Lupus

Secui

Optime

50 lbs (23 kg)
17 in (at shoulder) (43 cm)

100 lbs (46 kg)
23 in (58 cm)

140 lbs (59 kg)
5ft 4in (60 in) (48 cm)

Like all forms, he's skinny and lanky. This form gives him the ability to run swiftly, due to his long legs and lean body.

He likes this form because it gives him a bit more height than his Lupus form does.

Probably Aithne's most favored form because of the use of hands.

Clothing & Accessories

  • Clothing
    • Aithne may or may not wear clothes.
  • Accessories
    • Note: Unlike his half-sister, Valencia Catori, Aithne did not receive a gris-gris to wear from his mother because she doesn't care about his protection.
    • His father found him a golden talisman and gave it to him on his 1st birthday. Aithne always wears it.

Personality

  • Mom Issues: His mother causes him to easily get upset if he doesn't feel like he's impressing her. She always seems cold and too busy to deal with him, and he notices the way that she values Valencia, his older sister. He will often try to overcompensate for that, and in sometimes in very dangerous and risky ways. He loves her, and he doesn't really understand why she is cold to him since he is unaware of the illegitimacy of his existence, but he constantly tries to get her attention and affection.
  • Anger/emotional Issues: Sometimes it's easy for him to be set off in a rage, and get very uptight and irritable. And then there's other times where he can feel worthless instead and become very depressed.
  • Kind/Respectful/People-Pleaser: He is in general a kind boy, and has a generally likable personality because of the way he has been raised by his father since his mother left the Court when he was still young. Since his father was mainly interested in helping others and being gentle and kind to others that may have some sort of power over him, as well as those younger and others even his own age. He doesn't discriminate, and he is respectful to most others, even if he does not like them.
  • Intelligent: Due to always being discarded by his mother, and generally raised alongside his 'father' and sister's sides, Aithne learned to read often and learn about the world as much as he can.
  • Trait Here: Some more stuff...?

Interaction

  • Scent: Catori, dog, old wood, owl, dirt

Relationships

Key Relations

  • Rio Marino: She hates him, but he loves her. Rio avoids Aithne like no tomorrow; but all Aithne wants to do is please Rio and earn her praise and affection. Because Rio avoided him as much as possible while he was younger, that could be why he grew up craving her attention.
  • Liam Catori: He realizes his father's love for him and reciprocates it sometimes, but is generally indifferent towards his father's loving actions.
  • Caroline Catori: She is his older, adopted sister, but he doesn't know nor does he question her relation to the family. She is kind to him, and he likes her. He doesn't hesitate to help her, but doesn't really trust her.
  • Valencia Catori: She is his favored sister, his mother's favorite child. While he acts kindly towards her and because she is family, and will do anything for her, inside he is jealous of her and would not hesitate to wallow in the glory of her failure.

Family: Marino, D'Angelo, Mwinyi

Good/Neutral Relations

  • Alder: taught Aithne low speech
  • Charlotte Haskel: was their former Queen, and his aunt. She was nice, though absent from his life (often thought to be doing Queenly things).
  • Hati Catori: is his uncle, and one of the Catori's he often sees around.
  • Skoll Haskel: is another one of his knightly uncles; Aithne looks up to Skoll because he seems brave.

Strengths

  • Writing/Reading (Journeyman): Being from an educated family, he was taught to read and write at a young age. He also learned to speak and write in French from his father, Liam Catori.
  • Swimming (Journeyman): He is a proficient swimmer, and he was taught while he was quite young and often enjoys going to the beach, sitting in the sun, digging in the sand and swimming.
  • Low speech (Journeyman): He learned how to speak low speech from the Margave of the Court and from there, learned how to speak to owls, which is normally what he likes to speak to.
  • Falconry (Apprentice): Since he learned how to speak lowspeech, he often speaks to birds about random things. He hopes to one day find a companion bird like his mother's owl.

Weaknesses

  • Paranoid: Aithne's is fearful of betrayal, and so he is specifically skeptical when making new friends. He becomes paranoid when he believes that his friends are betraying him.
  • Rio Marino: He would do just about anything for her, just for her to tell him that she loves him and not have that strange look in her eyes when she looks at him. Aithne craves her attention so much that he would follow her to the ends of the Earth.

History

Timeline

2013

  • Aithne is born during September, and Rio minimally gives him the attention and affection he needs to survive. She lets him suckle so that he can stay alive, not having the heart to reject him because he was only a puppy. As Aithne grows older and no longer needs to suckle, Rio often leaves him with Valencia or Liam and goes off on her own. He sees less and less of his mother at this point.

2014

  • January: By this time, Aithne seeks knowledge and his adoptive father, Liam, teaches him how to read and write, while growing up in an foreign language-speaking household, Aithne catches on to Italian and French pretty quickly - though is by no means fluent yet. Whenever he sees Rio, she is cold to him, but she helps him learn Italian and teaches him minimal things - but she mostly stays away and leaves him with Liam or on his own. Aithne is aware that his mother is preparing for a trip. She speaks of building a boat with someone from Cercatori d'Arte and plans to set sail around the country (originating from Cercatori d'Arte and sailing back to Cour des Miracles.
    • His family is sad because its the end of the month, and Rio will be leaving for her trip. Despite it being the dead of winter, Rio insists that she will go on the boat trip and be back in about a month. Aithne, Valencia and Liam all see her off, and as a month passes, then another month... they assume she is dead. However, Aithne has hope that she will return; though, he does accept the possibility that the sea may have swallowed her and Acciai up whole.
