The Combat Medic

Asura Creo is the daughter of Skana Creo and Sully, and is the sister of Saleos Creo. She was born into Midnight Shores, where she remained and was ranked as a Caellum up until its disbandment in December of 2016. The small family then joined Sapient, where Asura has followed in her mother’s footsteps in becoming an esteemed medic. She steadily climbed the ranks as she proved her loyalty, skills, and diplomacy talents to the pack, eventually obtaining the rank of Domus Faber. In July of 2018 though, Asura’s loyalty to her Sagax was questioned upon finding a packmate murdered in pack lands and evidence that brought previous secrets to light. The discovery eventually lead to a quick disbandment of Sapient.

When her family decided to travel to her father’s homeland in the Netherlands, Asura elected to stay behind, not wanting to abandon their animals companions that could not make the journey across the ocean, as well as feeling too connected to the land she was born in to leave it. She chose to remain and continue her medical studies.

Asura is currently a Loner.


Asura was voted as one of two to win “Best Person to be Stranded on a Deserted Island With” in the 2017’s yearbook superlatives.

1.  Basics

1.1  Appearance

Physical

  • Species: Mainly wolf, but there are obvious signs of hybridization seen in her slighter head and build, faint brindling, and lighter claws
  • Fur: Medium in length, thick, double-coated; soft around her ears and neck
    • Optime Hair: Soft and silky smooth, it brushes just past the top of her shoulders. Her bangs are pushed to the pushed to the right and kept out of her eyes. The ends have a tendency to flair out. When working, Asura may put her hair up in a ponytail
  • Facial Features: Wolf, but with shepherd tendencies seen in her slightly thinner muzzle and skull; small ears
  • Build and Size: She stands about average for a wolf, large compared to a dog. She is smaller than her mother thanks to her father’s shepherd genes. Overall, she is lean, athletic, and well-balanced. She is built for both speed and power, falling to neither extreme.
    • Lupus and Secui: Durable, solid, and long-legged; she could either be used for coursing prey or for take down. Her Secui form is a more muscled version of her Lupus
    • Optime: Balanced and with soft, feminine curves. She’s is toned and has natural strength that may catch some off guard. It is obvious that Asura does not live an idle lifestyle, and values work ethic over looks.
  • Humanization: Highly civilized due to her time in Sapient, and, while she does not go out of her way to having a whole wardrobe full of fancy clothing, she does possess a few, as well as a few accessories too. As a medic and knife-user, she uses her hands a lot, and is no stranger to using more sophisticated items.

Coloration

  • Fur:
    • Primarily Silver Sand (#c1c5c7)
  • Markings:
    • Outer Space (#33383C) ears
    • Gray Chateau (#9da1a3) blaze, gradually fading into Nevada (#666a6c) as it reaches the bridge of her nose. It also cuts between the lighter undertones surrounding her eye and that of her cheek. Gray Chateau runs the middle of her forehead, up the length of her spine, and stops just after the first few bones of her tail. The color spills over, dribbling into her primary color in the form of faint brindling.
    • A series of upside-down chevrons form at the base of her neck, and work their way down to her mid-back before breaking off into a single ripple that’s point touches her lower back. The coalition wraps from her shoulders, and slips down her spine. They are primarily Porcelain (#ebedee) in color, with Outer Space (#33383c) pooling between two at her shoulders.
    • Porcelain (#ebedee) undertones, beginning on her muzzle, working their way alongside the gradient blaze up to her brow spots; they brush under her eyes, spill across her cheeks, and down her throat. After being cut by Silver Sand (#c1c5c7), they begin again at her chest, running down her legs, along her belly, and along the underside of her tail. The insides of her ears are also this color.
  • Eyes: Bermuda (#76d4ab)
  • Optime Hair: Dominantly Porcelain (#ebedee) with a few pieces of Silver Sand (#c1c5c7) woven in

1.2  Essentials

Personality

PERSONALITY HERE

Interests

  • Likes: Spring and fall, birds, helping others, red meat, having fun, sparring, experimenting and learning new medicinal methods

    • Bilingual: Fluent in Common Tongue (English) and Dutch
  • Scent: Fresh rain and river water, ferns and wildflowers, pine, wisteria, medicinal remedies, birds/horse/elk
  • Quirks, Gestures, Etc.: Tends to smile as both a general expression and as a way to hide uneasiness
  • General Posture and Body Language: Friendly, open, confident

Biases

  • Packs: None
  • Species: None
  • Non-Luperci: None
  • Gender: None
  • Color: None
  • Sexuality: Looks down upon polygamous relationships and one-night stands
  • Age: Elders are to be respected for their experience, not necessarily because of their age

Sexuality

Strictly heterosexual. She is attracted to healthy, physically fit males, but, is not particular whether this ranges more on the leaner side or the muscular. She values loyalty and honesty, and would never consider someone that is arrogant or misogynistic. Men that she can joke and tease and can make her laugh, feel comfortable, and safe are much more likely to become someone close to Asura. She does not actively go out of her way to find romance though, and often does not even consider it when dealing with others. Asura is not likely to develop feelings for someone unless they have shared a history with her as friends first.

Due to her upbringing, Asura strongly frowns upon unfaithful lovers and one-night stands. She does not approve of polygamous relationships either, though, this is mostly due to her feelings on loyalty to one’s partner.

Spirituality & Substances

Asura is not spiritual in the slightest, and was only loosely raised to believe that there is a higher being out in the world. What that being is and whose side they are on are not important considerations for the Creo. If it was meant to be, it will happen.

Being a medic, Asura does not partake in drugs at all. Only on occasion, she’ll drink alcohol, and, even then, she does so socially rather than to drink herself into oblivion. Asura will stop herself before becoming intoxicated.

2.  Relationships

2.1  Family

  • Extended: Creo, Opilio, Laveau, Torrentem
  • Mate: None
  • Children: None

2.2  Relations

Key Relations

  • Skana Creo and Sully were her parents. Asura strives to follow in her mother’s footsteps. She thought of Skana to be very intelligent, kind, and reliable, and often confided in her when she had problems or was in need of advice. She shared a good relationship with her. Her father was someone who Asura adored. She loved how Sully could make her laugh, and found him very easy to get along with. She enjoyed his laidback personality even though she nagged at him for it, and overall, liked to spend time with him.
  • Saleos Creo was her brother. It is because of him that Asura is as rough and tough as she is. She valued his input—even if they argued or bickered like siblings do—and saw Saleos as her equal. The siblings shared a strong bond with one another and were protective of each other.
  • Vepar Creo was her awesome uncle that she loved to pieces. Asura thought him to be an unstoppable force, and would often seek him out when she felt weak, scared, or, in general, wanted to feel protected. She viewed Vepar as practical, and, in general, very knowledgeable about the world and fighting.

Other Relations

  • Rowtag was a friend of Asura’s. Their shared interest in using herbs for their professions allowed the pair of them to become close. She valued his judgement and help, and generally tried to look out for him and his wellbeing. She did not like Rowtag’s cat, Sitala, though.
  • Moon Moon Damaichu was someone who Asura considered an ally. She helped the Damaichu on multiple occasions, and even helped her during the birth of her first litter. A running gag between them was that Moon Moon often misread Asura’s actions as flirtatious in nature, leading to awkward moments for Asura to try to fix.
  • Nieve Ortega was not quite a friend, but more than an acquaintance. Nieve crafted Asura her first humanized item (a bracelet), and the pair have worked together on occasion. While not overly friendly or personal with one another, Asura respected the Ortega.
  • Hibiki (fka Kaimu) was something of a friend—though not quite—to Asura. He was difficult to read with his constantly changing emotions, and their relationship began during a low point in Hibiki’s life. They’ve sparred before, and Asura has helped him in the past as well.

Minor Relations

  • Enemies: None
  • Murders: None

5.  Residence

  • The Medicine Shop
    The home was originally a medicine shop that Asura and her mother claimed while still members of Sapient. When the pack was disbanded in July 2018, Asura decided to keep the shop running while her family left for her father’s homeland. She made use of nearby buildings for housing her mount companions, Muddy and Saul, as well as for other uses of storage. During the winter months following Sapient’s disbandment, she gained a companion, (LINK HERE), who helped her take care of things and act as a guard of sorts.
    The building is made of a beautiful white stone that is stained with years of dirt, grime, and moss along where water drips and collects from the roofing and overhangs. The roof is made of clay shingles, and a few are missing or broken here and there whenever a storm gets bad enough. A wisteria vine crawls along many of the old gutters and overhangs, helping only further create the atmosphere of a medic's workshop. The outside has various plant life growing up in patches, and a large basin used to collect fresh water sits nearby.
    Inside, the Asura’s family roughly sectioned off the workshop using wood timbers. From the entryway, one walks into a large, open area filled with a few, Luperci-made tables that roughly act as beds for would-be patients. When not occupied, various herbs or other medical supplies may be set out on them. There are a few windows that allow in natural light, though, some have been boarded up due to being broken. Shutters have been added to others. Sectioned off, and further towards the back of the workshop, is where Asura prepares herbs, salves, and stores other medical supplies. From this area, one can access the basement, which is typically cold year-round and is used as storage for their herbs and other perishables.
    Since Sapient’s disbandment and her family’s departure, Asura has sectioned off a corner towards the back of the shop for a sleeping area. Making use of one of the patient beds, Asura’s has pine needles and various furs to help cushion her own bed. Her weaponry and other personal goods are typically hung off of nails in the wall or on a nearby nightstand pilfered from the Government Estate.
    The birds have free reign over the shop, though, tend to stick to the perches Asura’s father and uncle made for them before they departed for the Netherlands. A high window is typically left ajar for them so that they can come and go as they please.

Previous Residences:

  • The Estate Room 2F19
A relatively sparse room overlooking the yard of the estate. There are windows that shed a decent amount of light into the room, and keep it relatively bright throughout the day. Two distinct beds can be found, both a large pile of pine needles, hay, cloth, and furs with visible body indentations. There is an obvious separation of whose side is who’s with how the beds are spaced apart from one another. There is an end table close to each bed, both decorated with belongings of their owner; Saleos’ with weaponry, Asura’s with books and journals. There is an old table that is used as desk of sorts for various projects by the siblings. Overall, the room is very well kept and tidy.
  • The Estate Room 2F20
Owned previously by Skana’s old mentor, Ciellen Loreath, it was only natural that Skana would choose the large, spacious, second-story room. With windows facing out towards the front of the Estate, the room has a lot of natural light to it. Drapes have been added for additional privacy for the room’s occupants, however. There is little in way of furniture due to its occupants having lived relatively feral lives before coming to Sapient.
Skana and her mate, Sully, have their bed furs on one side of the room while Skana’s brother, Vepar, sleeps in the opposite side. Timbers have been piled for a simple division and sectioning of the room’s occupants. Vepar’s side takes up a noticeably less amount of space than the couple, and is largely bare save for a rack for his weapons and a small table.
One corner is specifically dedicated to Skana and her medicinal work. A small bookshelf filled with various pieces Skana has scavenged from her travels or from the pack library lines a wall on her side of the room. A table and Luperci-made cabinetry are filled with a multitude of herbs in various stages of use, drying, or studying. Her tools and other materials are kept neatly away in a separate, Luperci-made cabinet.
  • The Moss House
An old, family home built of brick and accented with hand-crafted wood. The residence has been reclaimed by nature, and, living on the outskirts of the division, is somewhat isolated from the other houses. A multitude of different trees, brush, and other forest plants hide the home from plain sight. A small, running stream can be found within a few hundred yards of it.
The house itself is comprised of two stories, with a turret located on its front right corner and a small, roofed porch on its back. The floors throughout the house are mostly wood; areas of new wood can be seen where repairs were made. The windows are mostly intact, either having survived the age of time, or, having been replaced; others that were unsalvageable were turned into shutters to allow open access to the outdoors or for easy come-and-go access for the birds. Overall though, the house is in decent shape for its age, protected from storms and heavy winds by the surrounding forest.
The first floor showcases a living room with a fireplace, a formal dining room (connected to the turret), a dilapidated kitchen, a guest bedroom, and a gutted bathroom. The second floor is where most of the bedrooms may be found, there being three in total. The master bedroom is the largest, and is connected to the turret. There is also a large, open room—presumably once a play or game room—located at the top of the stairs, and from which splits off into the various individual rooms. Two bathrooms also occupied the second floor, but have been gutted, and have been turned into storage areas or areas of roost for the birds.
Within eyesight of the house is a roomy, dug out den beneath a large, sturdy pine tree. Skana dug this out when she became pregnant with her first litter, and occupied it during the children’s first few months of life. Once the children grew older though, the den was used as a “hideout” of sorts for their childhood fantasies and fun.
The birds, Thanos, Peck, Thistle, Thorn, and Bird, roost in the various trees outside of the home or in the house, and often enter through one of the open windows/shutters. On occasion, one might noticed a few skewered animals within range of the house, a macabre habit done by the two shrikes, Thistle and Thorn.

History:

Pan’s life began rather harshly, uprooted from his nest after a fierce, spring storm with large, gusting winds. He was found in an abandoned pan—from which he was named—by Peck, a grackle companion belonging to Asura’s mother. Asura had every intention to kill him and put him out of his misery, however, when Pan tried to fight her off, his actions made her reconsider, and she chose to raise him with the help of her mother and her mother’s birds, Thanos and Peck. He became attached to her, and eventually became Asura’s partner of sorts, helping—and occasionally hindering—her work.

Muddy (Draft-type Horse)

  • Gender: Stallion
  • Species: Draft-type horse
  • Date of Birth: Unknown, suspected 2008
  • Onboard?: Yes

    • …is an older horse

Miscellaneous:

Skills & Abilities

  • Rider-trained
  • Ability and experience in pulling carts and moving heavy loads
  • Knows simple commands

Personality:

Even-tempered, calm, and unshakable, Muddy boasts a surprising personality for an intact stallion. He has been around Luperci for nearly all of his life and is rather used to their movements and forms, and, is thus, not easily spooked by them. However, he does maintain some of his natural fear of canines though, and if approached in a certain way while in Lupus/Secui form, Muddy may bolt or attack. Muddy is well known for his willingness to work, and one may even say he enjoys having a "job" to do. He is very good for new riders, and is, unsurprisingly, a very easy horse to work with despite his rather large size. He seems to know his power and size, and it is rare for him to accidentally step on someone.

History:

Originally her mother’s horse, his full history is not known to Skana, however, she does know that Muddy was an established work animal of Midnight Shores, where Skana was a member. When the pack was disbanded in the winter of 2016, Skana took Muddy with her as her personal mount while many of his stablemates were either given to then-members or given to Casa di Cavalieri or Sapient. He was taken with Skana to Sapient.
Muddy eventually became Asura’s horse when she grew old enough to care and handle him.

Thanos (Great Horned Owl)

  • Size:
    • Length: 24 in (61 cm)
    • Wingspan: 56 in (142.2 cm)
    • Weight: 5.4 lbs (86 oz; 2.5 kg)
  • Key Features: Typical tufted "horns", "scowl"
  • Coloration: Brown with tawny and white coloring, golden eyes

Individuals may assume:

  • Noticing that Thanos is not intimidated by other birds of prey and may go so far as to attack them if they harass him
  • Is opportunistic, and may go after a lesser companion animal if he does not know that they're someone's "pet"

Miscellaneous:

Skills & Abilities

  • He is capable of broken High-Speech
    • His voice is deep, raspy, and with a slight shriek, making it frightening to anyone not expecting it or unable to see him
  • He is crepuscular, being most active during twilight/dusk; however, he has been known to be active during night time, and to a lesser, degree, during peak daylight hours
  • True to his species, Thanos is a silent hunter, and a good one at that. It is rare that he loses anything he sets his sights on, and has been known to vindictively go after the babies of his natural predators/competitors for food
  • He has been used for scouting and patrolling purposes, and thanks to his coloration and silent flying, he is ideal for tracking something without being noticed

Personality:

Since the death of his mate, Thanos’ personality has drastically changed. He is very cynical and distrusting, often doubtful of others and sarcastic in nature. One is given only one chance with him, as he is frustratingly stubborn and unforgivable. First impressions are everything. He is not a creature known for his kindness or mercy outside of the affection he gives to Skana.
With Skana, one is able to see the raptor’s softer side. He is very affectionate to her, treating her almost as if she were another owl. He brings her food and helps her with various tasks. He jokes with her, though, his humor is often quite dark and there are times when it is unclear whether he is being serious or joking. Thanos is highly protective of Skana, and is not above attacking someone if he feels they are a threat to her. As well, Skana is the only person who seems to have any control over him. Thanos will obey those of her immediate family as well, and has shown a protectiveness over her two children.
He is a master at ambush, renowned and feared through the territory’s smaller fauna for his species’ silent ways of killing. He is very intimidating because of his size and deadly talons. Thanos is highly intelligent, having lived with a luperci since his egg days, and is not easily frightened or fooled by their ways like a normal bird might.
He gets into feuds with Peck, and often threatens to eat the smaller bird. He has no intention to follow through with these threats though, simply enjoying the power he has over the grackle.

History:

The owl is a native to the Western Tangles. His parents, royalty of the Great Horned Owls who ruled their particular vast stretch of territory, were companions of a lone, elderly coywolf named Ylva Creed. He was taught High Speech at a very young age, and was raised as a companion to the luperci amongst a flock of other birds and animals. The older woman eventually grew sick, and no amount of herbs or medicines could save her fragile body. The young prince grew to inherit his parents' grand expanse when they became old, and chose to remain close to the dying Ylva in her final days. When the luperci came to pass, his parents followed soon after in their own grief. Thanos ruled his crown with an older, more experienced female named Theoren. She was his queen, his empress, his everything. They had been happy together, and raised many successful offspring.
Thanos lost his crowned jewel though in the vicious, sudden rains that swept and flooded Nova Scotia in the spring of 2015. A powerful wind had knocked a neighboring tree into their home, causing the two birds to panic and take flight from the safety of their nest. Theoren was struck down by a stray branch from the fallen tree. Thanos himself was clipped by the obstacle, and only just managed to come out unscathed. Skana found him and nursed his broken soul and bruised body back to full health. He has since taken to the luperci, and has vowed his service to her for what she did, and for giving his late queen a proper burial.

  • Has been used to help find unique plants, though, if he is not given a specific plant (via visual) to search for, what he finds can vary from useless, to helpful, to harmful

Personality:

A rather quirky little thing, Peck is often something that brings out a good laugh in anyone. He can be friendly, playful, and affectionate, but, every now and then, something will set him off and he will become a jerk. He likes to puff up his feathers a lot, be it in a defensive display or—as Skana puts it—his cheeky attitude. Like his namesake, Peck has also been known to peck an individual when they do something he doesn’t like…or simply because he feels like it. He likes shiny and brightly colored items, but is relatively cautious around new things. He is a glutton for food, something that led him to become a companion to the Creo siblings. Around Skana, he’s very talkative.
He does not like Thanos, having grown up to be fearful of the predatory bird. His instincts often get the better of him despite having come to understand that the owl won’t hurt him. He is quick to flee if spooked, but, has been known to pester the raptor whenever given the opportunity.

History:

The avian came to be a familiar to Skana through her older brother, Vepar. Vepar had noticed the curious avian constantly shadowing the two around meals. Through some sympathetic handouts and acting calmly around the bird, Vepar had befriended him. The grackle has since become a tag-along of the duo’s travels, and always seems to find them even after a being apart for days, sometimes even weeks or months at a time. Peck is by no means “tame,” as he does and goes where he pleases. But, he does seem to like the siblings though, and has come to see them as an odd sort of extension to his flock. He has been known to try and warn them of potential dangers, and land on them as well. Skana likes Peck, and is secretly happy that her brother took pity on him, particularly because Peck seems to bring out her brother’s softer side.
