  • Build and Size: With an average height and an above average weight, Cottongrass is a beefcake with broad shoulders, a barrel chest, short, stocky, powerful legs, large paws, and, of course, a soft tummy.

  • MBTI: ESFJ (The Caregiver)
  • Alignment: Lawful Good

Motivations

  • Adventure
    • Nunc quis odio libero. Morbi in vestibulum lectus, ut blandit dolor. Praesent justo nibh, ultricies quis hendrerit nec, consectetur non purus. Quisque erat dui, ultricies vel orci sit amet, venenatis tempus tortor. Etiam ornare nunc sit amet enim lacinia.

Fears

  • Horses
    • Having been stepped on by hooved animals many times in the past, Cottongrass distrusts, dislikes, and fears horses. Why anyone would keep one for fun is a mystery and horror story rolled into one.

Interests

  • Likes: Owls, stories, adventuring, exploring.
  • Dislikes: Horses, commitment, responsibility, expectations, serious conversations, restriction.

Biases

  • Species
    • While not malicious, Cottongrass sees wolves as the ‘default’ species, with dogs being weird wolves that don’t like being called wolves.
  • Non-Luperci
    • All non-Luperci (or even those just temporarily four legged) are his friend until proven otherwise.

Sexuality

  • Homosexual
    • Primarily attracted to men, Cottongrass is a sucker for wolves and wolf hybrids with soft, kind, and intelligent personalities.

Spirituality

  • Somewhere between Animistic and Agnostic.
    • Raised with his grandfather’s (or ataatatsiaq's) traditional animistic beliefs which have since been simplified into the idea of good and bad actions, with bad actions resulting in bad luck.
    • While he believes there is a higher power out there—whether it's the spirits his ataatatsiaq told him about, or something else entirely—he doesn’t know the specifics. (And doesn't like thinking about it, thank you very much.)
  • Superstitious
    • Cottongrass genuinely believes that he is cursed with bad luck and that he did something when he was younger to deserve it. Because of this, he doesn’t do much in terms of breaking or lifting the ‘curse.’

Substances

  • Alcohol, Cigarettes, Drugs
    • As a non-Luperci, Cottongrass has little interest in drugs, alcohol, and cigarettes.

3.  History

3.1  2018

December 2018

Arriving on the east coast in early December, Cottongrass is quick to meet new faces and make new friends, notable among them being Falcon. The two are quick to bond over the story of the qalupalik, and after an unpleasant encounter in the woods, Cotton spends the night in Mistfell Vale with the coyote hybrid, furthering their budding friendship.

Later that month, Cottongrass continues heading east with the goal of finding new stories to share with the coyote. During his journey east he meets and eventually befriends Cidro Amato de la Peña after the two meet during chaotic rainy night, and is even charged by a moose, only to be saved by the very beautiful and handsome Cedric Stryder.

While out and about, Cottongrass meets Theodora, who he is immediately fond of, as well as a fellow non-Luperci, Tolkien! Oh, and her grumpy friend Solas.

Cotton, Falcon, and the coyote's friend, Aenan Pyr, venture out when they hear stories of possible human sightings. Cotton's newly gained satchel ends up stolen, as well as Falcon's cloak, and Aenan's bandolier full of fish hooks and bait.

Later that month, Cottongrass and Falcon make it official between them, when the coyote hybrid mistakenly believes Cotton is seeing both Malfoy, Nyla, and him. Cotton is quick to tell him and assure him that no, there's no one else, just him.

April 2019

With spring comes changes. Cotton meets an old friend while exploring in the woods near Mistfell Vale, and Falcon has his own news for him.
