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 it's 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.

Currently, Asura is a member of Sapient, ranked Domus Faber. She holds the Métier of a master-level Medic.


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
  • Nose, Paw Pads: Shark (#333436)

  • Scars: Cold Turkey (#c8aca9)

      • Sapient (metallic, salt, tule, oregano, Moineau family)

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 are her parents. Asura strives to follow in her mother’s footsteps. She thinks Skana to be very intelligent, kind, and reliable, and will often confide in her when she has problems or is in need of advice. She shares a good relationship with her. Her father is someone who Asura adores. She loves how Sully can make her laugh, and finds him very easy to get along with. She enjoys his laidback personality even though she may nag at him for it, and overall, likes to spend time with him.
  • Saleos Creo is her brother. It is because of him that Asura is as rough and tough as she is. She values his input—even if they may argue or bicker like siblings do—and sees Saleos as her equal. The siblings share a strong bond with one another and are protective of each other.
  • Vepar Creo is her awesome uncle that she loves to pieces. Asura thinks him to be an unstoppable force, and will often seek him out when she feels weak, scared, or, in general, wants to feel protected. She views Vepar as practical, and, in general, very knowledgeable about the world and fighting.

Other Relations

  • Rowtag is a friend of Asura’s. Their shared interest in using herbs for their professions allowed the pair of them to become close. She values his judgement and help, and generally tries to look out for him and his wellbeing. She does not like Rowtag’s cat, Sitala, though.
  • Moon Moon Damaichu is someone who Asura considers an ally. She’s helped the Damaichu on multiple occasions, and even helped her during the birth of her first litter. A running gag between them is that Moon Moon often misreads Asura’s actions as flirtatious in nature, leading to awkward moments for Asura to try to fix.
  • Nieve Ortega is 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 respects the Ortega.
  • Hibiki (fka Kaimu) is something of a friend—though not quite—to Asura. He’s 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

Trade

5.  Residence

Previous Residences:

  • 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.

TBA

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

    • Height: 16 hands (64 in; 163 cm)
    • Weight: 1,400 lbs (635 kg)
  • Key Features: Draft ancestry, feathering, splash coloring
  • Coloration: Chestnut with white splash, brown eyes

Sapient members may assume:

  • Seeing Muddy in the stables, working, or with Asura
  • Knowing of…
    • …his affinity for apples and oats
    • …his gentle temperament despite not being a gelding
    • …him originally being Skana’s horse

Miscellaneous:

Skills & Abilities

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

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.
