1.  Appearance

1.1  Basics

Essentials

  • Species: The result of many years of interbreeding between feral cat breeds, Cora probably bears most rememblance to the Norwegian Forest cat, primarily due to her fur-length.
  • Fur: Fairly thick, silky, and fluffy semi-longhaired coat. Fur can sometimes be quite grimy and messy.
  • Facial Features: Short whiskers. Large, pricked ears. White muzzle.
  • Build and Size: Fairly small. Lean and long-limbed.
  • Humanization: Currently very feral, but will soon become more humanised.

Coloration

  • Fur:

NOTE: Cora was originally born light grey (Tiara), but as she matured the contrast of colour in her fur increased, her underbelly lightened, and her markings and blue colouration became more prominent. Her blue fur will darken again during adulthood.

  • Base is Tiara
  • White
  • Regent Gray markings
  • Markings:
    • Grade 4-5 white spotting (similar to mask and mantle pattern)
      • White mitts
      • White muzzle
      • White underbelly and neck
    • Cadet Blue lynx points
    • Regent Gray, mackerel tabby markings
  • Eyes: Bay Leaf, with Driftwood brown surrounding the pupil
  • Nose and Paw Pads: Prim pink

2.  Personality

Kitten

Cora fits the idea of the stereotypical kitten: playful, inquisitive and (for the most part) fearless. She is used to Luperci, but considers them to be a little crazy and treats them like harmless lunatics. She doesn't mind being petted or cradled at all. Has a definite preference towards an independent, self-reliant lifestyle. Rarely adopts others into her 'friendship circle' unless they serve a purpose beneficial to her. However, this is not to say that she is not incapable of genuine friendship... it's just it's not that high on her priority list.

2.1  Ideals

Traits

Sarcastic humour. Prefers to be the master of the situation.

  • Outlook: Optimistic
  • Sociability: Extroverted/ambiverted
  • Expression: Dominant, easy-going, humorously skeptical
  • Alignment: Chaotic evil, with leanings towards true neutral

Motivations

  • Survival
  • Food and comfort
  • Catnip

Fears

  • Live fish on land (extreme): Finds their movements terrifying. Will run for her life.
  • Helplessness (major): Causes great stress and behavioural changes. Prone to insanity and mood swings in this situation.
  • Falling/High heights (moderate): May suffer from vertigo. Avoids looking down cliffs and other high spots.
  • Loud noises (minor): Will pursue peace and quiet. Repetitive, constant or frequent loud noises will cause stress and anxiety.

Biases

There is prey, there is predator, there is friend, and there is other. Prey will be played with. Predators will be avoided or tricked. Friends will be mocked but cared for. Others will be ignored or otherwise regarded with a long, unimpressed gaze.

  • Packs: Like cat colonies, except for canines. Currently knows little about them.
    • Cat Colonies: Loves them, but there can be a lot of politics involved between members.
  • Species: Does not really understand body language and social systems of non-felines, and so usually does not understand subtle displays of emotion. Often treats them more standoffishly or patronisingly. Felines are therefore easier to socialise with and she is more inclined to befriend them over other species.
  • Non-Luperci: Just like Luperci, except they cannot shift. More natural creatures. Can be friend or predator.
  • Luperci: Weird shapeshifter canines who are slightly on the loony side. Can be friend or other.
  • Gender: No bias whatsoever.
  • Color: Natural colours are treated with indifference, but unnatural colours are very, very attractive. Will fall head over heels with a neon pink tomcat.
  • Sexuality: Non-hetero relationships are odd, since they never result in children. Other than that, she has a neutral opinion of such matters. Polygamy is ideal, as monogamous relationships are inflexible and can even be restricting.
  • Age: Literally doesn't know that old people exist, or at least for very long.

Sexuality

  • Heterosexual
  • Prefers polygamous and short-term relationships
  • Very low libido
  • Blunt, straightforward and confident when approaching a potential sexual partner. Dislikes most flirty behaviour or herself being approached. Can be very blunt.

Interests

  • Likes: Playing, agility exercises/activities, shiny things, luxury
  • Dislikes: Stressful situations, overly aggressive behaviour

Substances

Is not attracted much to substances, but is willing to try some.
Also, is hugely addicted to catnip.

Spirituality

Strong believer of polytheism (multiple deities).

3.2  Relations

Key Relations

Positive Relations

Neutral / Negative

  • Axelle Napier, Anathema - Axelle essentially kidnapped her before trading her to Maciel, but still Cora holds very few negative feelings against her. She doesn't consider Axelle to be so much of an enemy.

Minor Relations

4.  Skills and Inventory

4.1  Abilities

Hunting

  • Education and Learning: Natural instinct alone, plus near-constant practice. Has received no formal training.
  • Rodents (Dabbler): Primarily hunts mice.
  • Birds (Apprentice): Ambushes small birds. Generally has a good overall success rate with this.
  • Scavenging/Prey stealing (Dabbler): Basic technique is to cause a distraction, and then take advantage of her small size to sneak around predators. Might also lead a predator to dead, unopened large game so that she can feed (her teeth are not strong enough to get through hide).
  • Rarely succeeds in hunting rodents
  • Does not understand or attempt to understand her prey. Relies on luck alone.

5.  History

Born in Anathema in a cat litter consisting of several other kittens. Later traded to Maciel. Now resides in Cour des Miracles, where she wanders and generally serves no purpose except perhaps catch a few mice. She is beginning to understand high speech, but is currently unable to speak it. Maciel intends to turn her into a proper rat-catcher.

5.1  Timeline

2014

  • ~3 July: Cora is born in Anathema
  • 4 Nov: Cora is brought to Halifax by Axelle Napier to be used as bait in a hunt. Taking an interest in the way the kitten was acquainted with Luperci, Maciel traded a raven for her and, with much difficulty (tempting her with prey, continuously rounding her up, etc.), brought her back to Cour des Miracles.
  • 6 Nov: After some wandering and spending a little time in Maciel's cave, Cora settles down in the Niobara Stables.

2015

  • DD Mon: Derp.
