1.  Appearance · Ref

Bec is a very large wolfdog, being descended from three very large breeds of canine. She holds herself tall, and has a lean muscular frame with a deep ribcage. She has pretty large paws and long almost gangly limbs and a long tail. Her eyes are brown highlighted with a ring of copper. Her skull is heavier set than an Irish Wolfhound, having inherited more wolfish features in this regard, with the slightly drooping lips of her Newfoundland heritage. She is powerfully muscled from a hard life at sea.

She is mostly grey, with infrequent black speckles across her entire body, though a distinct black strip runs down her spine. She has black tips to her pointed ears, and a black chin. Her hind paws are sooty black up to the heel, where it starts to fade into heavy speckling until it blends back into grey. She has black paw pads and a black nose.

Her coat is pretty long, thick, and shaggy, soft in appearance but actually quite coarse. Even in Lupus form she appears to have a "mane" of thick warm fur around her neck and a little way down her back. Her Optime mane is a richer black than any other part of her fur, spiking forward between her ears and trailing long down her back when left loose. Bec usually keeps it tied into a high ponytail that reaches the small of her back.

In cold weather she wears a thick black bearskin cloak, but otherwise she is naked and carries a large green hiking backpack with her few belongings in it (the cloak takes up the most space.)

2.  Personality

Bec is still young and thus still developing, but she is already quite a headstrong young lady. She is dignified, friendly, and exceptionally loyal, but she's also something of a schemer. She's happy to manipulate those around her if the results might better her in some way. Her morals are as grey as her coat, and she is as mercurial as the seas she was born upon.

While she is still figuring out her path in life, Bec has the makings of an alpha in her already (though not necessarily a good one). Command is something she fiercely wants, but it will be some time yet before she is ready for it. Until then, she must either remain solitary or learn to bend her knee in submission, the latter being the more difficult option. With her current emotional maturity, any power she gained could easily result in a tyrany-- she's got a lot of growing up and calming down to do yet.

While her default is quite friendly and sweet-natured, Bec has a very short fuse and a violent temper. She's got the size to back up her fury, but she's also inexperienced and can lose her head. She has some training in combat with basic one-handed weapons from her father.

Bec is VERY good with children, and is very interested in having some of her own. That can wait, though; she has plenty of time.

She's currently a petty thief and wannabe-bandit trash. Maybe she'll be a bigger deal when she's older.

4.  History

Bec was born on a ship full of a motley crew of vagrants, less-than-honourable folk, and hardened sailors. Her father was a huge storm-coated wolf and her mother was a behemoth Wolfhound-Newfoundland cross, and the pair acted as co-captains/alphas over the seaborne crew-pack. Bec was born into a litter of nine, and was raised on the ship learning how to work at sea with her siblings under her parents guidance.

The ship mostly frequented the coasts of Scandinavia and Russia, taking on passengers and new crew members occasionally. As the litter grew older, some of their number began to disembark from the ship onto the docks of seaside settlements and disappear into the world. While Bec was initially concerned, her parents had seen this happen to three previous litters and understood it as the way of things.

The ship took on five passengers who provided them with crates of goods in exchange for passage to Nova Scotia. The journey was long and difficult, but the crew persevered until they managed to land and let off their passangers-- along with Bec.

The young wolfdog said goodbye to her parents and her two remaining siblings, accepting a gifted fur coat from her father-- "I killed the bear myself, pup, and the bastard'll keep you cozy in the snow"-- and set off into new territory to start her own life. Despite occasional urges to go back to sea, Bec has stayed on land and continues to seek her place in the world.
