1.  Appearance

Atulia is short, small and slender who is most often seen walking her lupus form as it is the form she perferes. Her fur is a smokey black complimented with grey and white flecks. Her eyes are a curious golden brown always on the move looking at everything in wonder and scrutiny. A bushy tail is topped of with a white tip.

In her Optime form her appearance is is as feral as her wild nature. Her mane is darker than the rest of her body fur, long and wavy. It is the o simple thing she takes much pride in and refuses to cut. Atulia is pretty, not plain nor beautiful. She carries herself as one who believes in their own importance radiating a sort of self assured confidence no one has torn down. When she moves she does so in a manner of unaware graceful elegance, one paw placed in front of the other quietly as if unconsciously stalking prey. Her head's held high and ears are pricked at the ready responding sharply to unfamiliar sounds; the well defined muscles of her body rolling subtly under well groomed dark fur. If one where to look upon her they might be surprised to see such confidence in such a young woman. Though Atulia doesn't see the point in possessions, she wears a bone necklace decorated with colorful feathers which once belonged to her mother. She is also void of weapons preferring to use her claws and teeth to deal damage.

Small, slender and swift. Atulia has an abundance of stamina and speed in this form feeling at times she can go faster than the wind. She feels the most freedom in this form and so is usually seen in it.

Strong but slow. Atulia rarely shifts into this form unless she feels the need to intimidate those who intimidate her. The mane appears darker than the lupus form and is naturally more fluffed up giving off the impression of being bigger. She is able to deal the most natural damage using teeth and claws than any other form.

Attractive but hindering. Atulia believes the Optime form is useless other than its usefulness for turning heads and manipulating objects. This form brings out Atulia's natural beauty to the fullest. She is slender rather than thin and is in the average department for curves. Her hair, darker than the rest of her is loose and untrimmed; decorated with a feather or two and reaches the middle of her back and giving off a unruly or wild sort of appearance.

2.  Personality

Atulia is very curious and loud canine with a natural impulsiveness of acting first and thinking later, frequently landing her into trouble and using her cleverness to get out of it on someone else's expense. Though reckless she is kind and doesn't shy away from helping those in need. Compettive and prideful she is saddled with a short temper prone to Rather independent and free-spirited following orders doesn't come naturally to her.

Atulia is gullible believing almost anything someone tells her. Holding her tongue is something Atulia enjoys, especially insulting others gives her a rush. Since her family's demise she keeps her distance

Atulia's high instinct of self preservation snubs her sense of duty and loyalty if her life is threatened, making her highly unpredictable in dire situations. She prefers her lupus form having rarely shifted in her life and views domestic animals, especially horses as defying nature's purpose for them as wild prey. Atulia believes nature gave her the lupus form of a wolf for a reason and to shift into another would be an insult as to her duty as a predator.

Atulia sees coyotes as mere pests incapable of hunting their own food and instead choosing to scavenge off of better and more superior predators such as herself, though she has never seen a dog before it is likely she would associate them with coyotes due to their small size.

Accessories

  • Bone and feather necklace. Once her mother's.

3.  History

Atulia was born to the Great Tribe. However her family had beliefs that differed slightly from the tribe and were dedicated to the old ways of their ancestors and stubbornly stayed in their lupus form even though it was frowned upon. Her family were one of many skilled hunters dedicated to killing only to eat and were annoyed that the tribe kept domesticated prey animals such as horses and cattle believing it was an insult to keep wild prey for other purposes for use other than their natural ones. They rarely wore jewelry such as a necklaces or bracelets thinking it odd to wear another animals remains.

Atulia was only pup born in her litter. Sadly her mother Avani, a skilled hunter died of sickness just two months after giving birth. Her loss was grieved by the pack as a hole but their father Chetan in particular was affected by her death and was never the same afterwards often disappearing for long periods of time leaving her older brother Bailk to care and teach her. Bailk like their parents was a talented hunter himself and dedicated to the hunt and its teachings, therefore also guiding her in their family belief's and traditions. At six months exactly her spirit guide Avash appeared to her as a young American Eastern female Crow, with an extremely curious and bossy creature topped off with incredible intelligence and wisdom. Atulia's father foolishly trespassed onto a grizzly's territory and was severely mauled. He died of his wounds soon after.

Atulia and Bailk decided to leave the pack even though she was barely six months old and he a scant two years but both were tired of the piteous looks their pack-mates cast upon them. Together they wandered throughout the wilderness sharpening their hunting skills. Atulia especially excelled at stalking her prey quietly and staying downwind of an animal before ambushing it and taking its life. Throughout that time the respect and reverence she already had for nature grew as did her curiosity and reckless nature. It was due to that recklessness that she got her brother injured during a hunt. She jumped the gun and Bailk suffered for her stupidity, with his life. The kick he received from the elk broke his ribs which then punctured his lungs and internal organs; he died within minutes.

She buried yet another member of her family which she swore would be her last. Unable to bear the sight of the forest home any longer she fled stricken with grief, guilt and regret. Not long after, Atulia ended up at the border of the AniWaya and howled announcing her presence to a place where she could leave her past behind and live life anew.

Spirituality

Atulia was taught to believe to respect the great mother goddess, she who sets all upon the earth with love and purpose. The purpose for predators are to keep balance, and uphold the mother's law of killing the weak and preserving the healthy. Prey like deer where meant to trim the vegetation and ensure the earth doesn't suffocate under the greedy plants seeking the sun. After a hunt if successful she gives thanks for the life of her prey and prays for their safe journey to their next life. If unsuccessful she thanks the prey for the chase and wishes them a healthy life. Each full moon she climbs onto the highest object around and sings her thanks to the goddess for allowing her to live to see another moon. Atulia believes when she dies she like everyone will meet the great goddess to receive the blessing for their next life before they are sent on their way. Though she sees death as a natural thing she is still afraid of it even though she was taught not to fear the journey to her next life.
