by Nat

Arthur was born to Skye Collins and Jazper Rhiannon-Knight in September 2014 alongside his three siblings in Cercatori d'Arte. When the pack disbanded in November 2014, Arthur moved to Casa di Cavalieri to live with his father. When his father died he moved to Casa's Outpost for a change of scenery and to heal from the loss. He returned to Casa very briefly in spring 2018 with his brother, Merlin Knight, until his brother moved to [[Packs/Cour des Miracles] to become a mated man. He has returned to the Outpost that summer.

1.  Basics

Physical

  • Species: Very obviously a wolf in all his forms. He has no traces of any other species in him so he has no reason to look like anything else but a pureblooded wolf.
  • Fur: The thick double coat of a wolf. Short, sleek, and every so slightly rough. Longer in the colder months, shorter in the warmer months.
    • Optime Hair: Medium length dark hair that is messy most of the time with several of the longer strands falling into his face. He combs it back when need be but for the most part it does whatever it wants (reference).
  • Facial Features: Obviously wolf. Large head, squareish muzzle, average triangular ears, and a typical sized nose. Eyes are a little bigger, bright and alert. Cheek fur is shorter than average.
  • Build and Size: He is larger than average due to his father's genes but well proportioned and very typically wolf. In all forms he is strong, solid, and sturdy.
    • Lupus and Secui: Run-of-the-mill wolf, nothing noteworthy aside from his above average size, most notable in his secui form.
    • Optime: Very tall and broad-shouldered. Carries himself assertively with his back straight, chest out, and at full height.
  • Humanization: Average. Wears clothes, uses weapons, lives indoors, etc.

1.2  Essentials

Personality

Old-School Chivalry - Tall, Dark, and Snarky - Brutal Honesty - Cultured Badass - Obfuscating Stupidity - Hidden Heart of Gold

Having lived a very run-of-the-mill life as a Knight among Knights in a relatively serious pack of hard working scholars, warriors, and merchants, Arthur decided early on that he wanted to diverge from the norm. He developed quickly into a grandiose know-it-all showoff who would do pretty much anything for a laugh or praise and as time went on - especially following the death of his father. After the disappearance of his mother, and the enslavement of his brother , Arthur steadily subdued into a more well-rounded individual.

He is still a bit of a trickster and prefers not to be too serious. He is bold and brash, opinionated and strong willed, not so levelheaded but a force to be reckoned with when he sets his mind to something. He is a little bit lazy - often feigning ignorance or unknowing when presented with a task he doesn't care for - but can be a hard worker when necessary. He is adventurous and a thrill seeker and thinks of himself as unbreakable, often putting himself into rather perilous or risky situations for the excitement of escaping or conquering them. He still loves attention and praise but doesn't go out of his way to seek it, rather he lets it come to him after all the ridiculous things he does.

At his core he is a kind and chivalrous individual who is highly intelligent and very perceptive, easily able to read others features and emotions, though he doesn't show this much. He is a skilled negotiator and has a knack for getting information out of others or getting them to do something simply by talking to them. He is easily approachable, amiable, and friendly.

Interaction

  • Speech: Mid-tone, not high not low, average. Fairly well spoken. Swears for emphasis.
  • Scent: Foresty. Pine, juniper, cedar, spruce. Earthy. Wet soil, grass, leaves, wildflowers.
  • Quirks, Gestures, Etc.: Very expressive with his face, ears, head, and hands. Likes to gesture when he speaks. Avoids eye contact when nervous or scared. Idly clicks his teeth.
  • General Posture and Body Language: Dominant and assertive, chest out, shoulders back, head up, back straight. Very confident and sure of himself. Mildly arrogant.

Traits

  • Outlook: Optimistic, Opportunistic
  • Sociability: Extroverted, Expressive
  • Expression: Dominant, Assertive
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Motivations: Success, admiration, risk, thrill, family
  • Fears: Failure, impairment, solitude, death

Interests

  • Likes: Adventure, travel, danger, exceitment, parties, horses, birds, swords, sparring, training, games.
  • Dislikes: Seriousness, restriction, too much work, too many rules, others who take themselves too seriously, slavery.

Biases

  • Packs: Dislikes Salsola and Anathema.
  • Species: Prefers wolf and wolf mixes but has no dislike toward other species.
  • Non-Luperci: Looked down upon slightly as inferior to luperci.
  • Gender: Mildly misogynistic, sees males as phsyically superior.
  • Color: Thinks luperci who die their fur are super weird.
  • Sexuality: Finds homosexuality strange but doesn't hate on it.
  • Age: Sees elders and pups as protected but ultimately inferior.

Sexuality

Arthur is heterosexual and is quite fond of females, especially ones that are strong and smart and more than capable of taking care of themselves. He is somewhat repelled by females he perceives as weak and meek and completely against any homosexual advances toward him, though he does not condemn anyone who swings that way. If he is interested in someone he would be quite open about it and though he would never admit it, he does think of himself as romantic.

Substances

While he doesn't mind a drink or two socially, he is not someone to lose himself to alcohol, as he prefers to keep his senses sharp. He has never tried any drugs and the smell of others smoking was enough to turn him off to any sort of inhalant. His favorite drink is a dark spicy rum.

Spirituality

Arthur believes in the sun/moon god Fenris and that the stars are the souls of past warriors. Though he holds to this belief he is not devout and does not pray or worship or celebrate Fenris or any other religion. For him it is a belief in something greater than himself and everyone else, a higher power.

2.  Relationships

2.1  Family

2.2  Relations

Key Relations

  • Merlin Knight is his brother and best friend. The two have been practically inseparable since they were pups. It saddened him when Merlin left Casa di Cavalieri to live with their mother and sisters and it broke his heart when he found out Merlin had been enslaved by Salsola and sold off in Portland. Though it took ages to find him, Arthur managed to buy back his brother's freedom and has brought him home to the rest of their family. Needless to say he finds it hard to let him leave his sight.
  • Skye Collins and Jazper Rhiannon-Knight are his parents. Though he visited his mother often when she moved on to found Midnight Shores, they were largely apart, and as a result the distance drove a wedge between them. Her disappearance deeply saddened him but he holds out hope that she's still alive somewhere and wishes for her safe return. His father, he idolized, and the Knight patriarch meant the world to him. After his passing near the end of 2016 Arthur was devastated and doesn't speak of him much anymore.

Other Relations

  • FOREVER
  • ALONE

Minor Relations

  • Enemies: Salsola, Slavers

3.  Skills


Key: Dabbler --> Apprentice --> Journeyman --> Master

  • Education and Learning: Arthur was blessed to be raised in a pack that prides itself on having the best skilled individuals and there was never a shortage of luperci to help him discover and develop his skills. Everything he knows he started working on early in his life and kept up with it, honing each skill as time went on. He is always training and always pushing himself to become better.
