Anatole Aston is the son of Aurèle Aston and Corvus Vendetta. He has one full-blooded brother, Athanase-Sade Aston, and two half-sisters, Cwmfen Nic Graine and Yi TaeKyung. Born into AniWaya, Anatole drifted between his birthplace and the wilds of Quebec. He finally settled in Lac Sakami to care for his injured mother, and remains there as one of their most experienced hunters. By his mate, Lutaaq, he has three children--Siginik, Tuktu, and Timmiak.

Subspecies

Anatole's coat is made up of several different shades, with a lighter undercoat topped by a mixture of gray and gold fur, with dark tips. He is an usually large wolf, but both of his parents were also large. He shows the pointed shape of his Tibetan heritage most clearly, lacking the softer, rounder shapes of an Arctic wolf. His fur pattern, too, betrays this--it is a darker version of the average.

Mostly, Anatole is stocky. He is an excellent hunter and thickly boned, owing to an upbringing with great abundance. The weight is apparent on his body, but it is streamlined in visible muscles under his thick fur. He has gained a few scars in his lifetime, but most are minor.

There is, in general, a very stern sort of look to Anatole at all times. He usually appears stiff and disinterested, which makes him come off as aloof. This would not entirely be a lie--Anatole's natural charisma bleeds through in his body language.

Anatole is almost always in his lupus form, though he will take to his other shapes if the need calls for them. When in his Optime form, Anatole's hair grows wild--he keeps it pulled back in a club, and often wears bird feathers in it. While adornment is rare, Anatole favors simple designs and subtle work over bright colors or intricate patterns.

Personality

Anatole believes that he doesn't need to answer to anyone unworthy of his respect. This independence has made him hardy, but as a consequence he does not understand how inter-pack relationships work. He is quick to judge character, and brutally honest to the point he seems cruel. Weakness bothers him, and as such, he constantly works to stay in top physical shape.
