Caoba Robles hails from the faraway Mediterranean port town of Onuba. She is the eldest daughter in a family of ten and the only survivor of her litter. From an early age Caoba was expected to help raise her younger siblings. However, Caoba was deeply dissatisfied with this nurturing role and preferred the work of her father's trade. When an opportunity was offered to her father to leave Onuba for a short while, Caoba made the decision to tag along.

In the winter of 2015, she was a part of the entourage to accompany the Onuban Baroness, Thalia Amaranthe, to Nova Scotia. After she assisted with the birth of Semini's children and learned of Krokar's resources, she decided to stay and help the Krokaran settle into motherhood. She remained in Krokar until July 2017, at which point she decided to journey into the world and live for herself.


Caoba was an adoptable character from 2015-2017 and is now retired.

1.  Personality

1.1  Summary

Caoba shares the typical traits of a Robles dog in that she is reliable, hearty, and confident in her physical capabilities. Unlike a Robles, however, Caoba desires freedom from the restrictions that were placed upon her since birth. She seeks to carve out her own path for the first time in her life. Well-socialized, Caoba is far more mature than most her age. She has a great sense of humor and strong moral compass.

1.2  Traits

  • Demeanor: Affable, Warm, Relaxed, Hard-working
  • Speech: She has a very thick Spanish accent and a slightly mature voice. She speaks a little slowly but confidently. She has a loud, warm laugh.
  • Scent: A heavy spicy scent

1.3  More In-Depth

Motivations

  • Self-Discovery: Having devoted so much of her life and time to her younger siblings and family, Caoba's main purpose now is to find out who she is and what she truly wants. She doesn't have any grand visions of the future, nor is she particularly interested in living large, but she does want to get out and see a few things before settling down.
  • Family: Although a motherly role was thrust upon her at such a young age, Caoba does someday desire a family of her own. Just not yet.
  • Skill: Falling under self-discovery, Caoba is motivated to harness the few skills taught to her by her father and master them. She is also looking to expand her skill set. She has a lot to offer, after all!

Biases

  • Packs: She feels positively about Krokar and Sapient, and highly disapproves of Salsola and Anathema for their slavery practices.
  • Non-Luperci: Onubans are taught to look down on Non-Luperci, and Caoba does carry some of these biases though she does not yet identify them in herself. Her family in particular is much more rooted in their heritage, and they are the closest of the Onuban court to the old ways of living. Caoba has sympathy for feral luperci. She feels like there has to be a synthesis between traditional and humanized lifestyles.
  • Gender & Sexuality: The Robles family is a matriarchal clan, much like the Amaranthes, and their values align in slight opposition of Onuba's tradition. Caoba believes women are just as, if not more capable than men, and she's also more liberal with her views of sexuality.

Fears

  • Harm: She is afraid of harm befalling her loved ones, and she does worry about those she's accepted into her motherly umbrella.

Substances

She is a hearty drinker and can hold her own in a drinking game. She's not a stranger to other substances, especially those of a plant and smoking variety, but she doesn't regularly partake because they hold specific ritualistic meaning in her family.

Sexuality

Caoba hasn't yet had an opportunity to explore her own preferences, but she knows that she would one day like to have a family.

Spirituality

Caoba is suspicious of the Onuban faith, the Lantern, and refrains from outright declarations one way or the other about her religious views.

2.  Appearance

2.1  Basics

Essentials

  • Species: Dog
  • Fur: Thick, dense but gentle to the touch. Caoba has a lot of scruff and her coat needs regular maintenance, but it's sturdy enough to ward off even a Canadian winter.
    • Optime Hair: Even thicker and curlier than her coat, Caoba's hair is an unruly beast that she manages to tame into nice, presentable buns. She sometimes like to weave flowers or plants into it.
  • Facial Features: Stout of muzzle and round of cheek, Caoba has beautiful luscious features that appear warm and approachable like a broad oak tree on a summer's day.
  • Build and Size: This girl has muscle! She is a giant woman.
    • Lupus: Big and fluffy, Caoba's lupus form takes a lot after her Bernese heritage.
    • Optime: Caoba's weight and strength appears evenly distributed but with an emphasis on her leg, thigh and anterior muscles as they support the rest of her dense figure.
  • Humanization: Caoba blends well between humanized culture and feral lifestyles. She has a healthy respect for both. She has a slight preference for wearing loose fitting robes, but will eschew clothing in favor of practical endeavors.

3.  Relationships

3.1  Family: Robles

Key Family Relationships

  • Immediate Family: Caoba is close to every member of her family. She spent a great deal of time helping her parents raise their children.

Family Tree

  • Mother: Olea Robles
  • Father: Ilex Almendro
  • Siblings:
First Litter: Arce, Pera
Second Litter: Higo, Mora, Palma, Holm
Third Litter: Fresa, Manna, Lima
  • Children: None
  • Extended Family: Robles, Almendro

3.2  Key Relationships

Semini

  • After journeying with Thalia Amaranthe to Nova Scotia, Caoba stayed behind to help with Semini's first litter. They became close friends until Semini began having trouble with her daughter. Semini's reliance on Caoba to help keep her family stable made Caoba lose respect for her, and they grew apart because of it. Though she left Semini on good terms, Caoba sees Semini as a figure of her past rather than her future.

Tiamat, Lotan

  • Caoba had a good part in taking care of Tia and Lo as children, and she loves them like family. She would be happy if they ever crossed paths again.

3.3  General Relations

Positive

  • Thalia Amaranthe: Caoba has always been ambivalent about the head of the Amaranthe family, but her time with the Baroness' daughter Semini cemented her dislike of the matriarch. She doesn't think Thalia is a very good person, and feels bad about helping her.
  • Camellia Amaranthe: A young Amaranthe that came along to prove her worth in a new world, Caoba is fond of Camellia. She hopes the girl doesn't take Thalia's actions to heart and finds her own way.

Neutral Relations

  • Krokar: Though she was never close to any of the members of Krokar aside from Semini, Caoba did enjoy their way of life and was happy to have spent time among them. She thinks they are good people.

Negative Relations

  • Scarlett Arena: A horrible two-faced woman that Caoba immediately did not trust. She feels validated for her good character judgment here.
  • Laevisa Arena: A suspicious woman that Caoba came to trust and then lose trust in once she disappeared with Semini's daughter. Caoba would like to punch Laevisa if she ever gets the chance.

4.  Skills and Inventory

Language & Literacy

  • Education and Learning: Caoba was raised in the Mediterranean port city of Onuba, where the three main languages are '''Spanish, Portuguese, and English (called Common Tongue)". As a member of the Inner Court Robles Family, she was educated on the basics of reading and writing, but never had the time to pursue it deeply.
    • English (Fluent)
    • Spanish (Fluent)
    • Portuguese (Fluent)
    • Low Speech (Apprentice): Caoba picks up well on the feelings and needs of others, and she can usually tell what other animals want. This ability could be honed should she ever encounter another creature she might want to bond with.
    • Reading (Apprentice): Reading is a slow and tedious process for Caoba.
    • Writing (Apprentice): Writing is a slow and tedious process for Caoba.

Blacksmithing

  • Education and Learning: Blacksmithing was Caoba's father's trade, and she took an interest in it before she was saddled with the task of raising her many brothers and sisters. It is something she would like to learn more about, if the opportunity arose.

Nursing & Midwifery

  • Education and Learning: Caoba helped rear most of her younger siblings. She is all too familiar with the birthing process and what it entails, as well as all the messy caregiving afterward. After the Red Star fell, she helped Pepper administer first aid to members that were injured.
