1.  Appearance

1.1  Essentials

Basics

Crim looks like a basic maned wolf, with red fur, black stockings and neck scruff, a darker mask around her eyes, and a slightly lighter underbelly. She also has black-tipped ears and the end of her tail looks like it was dipped in white paint. She has no scars on her body as of now. Crim's eyes are a deep chocolate brown, with flecks of gold if you look carefully enough.

Crim has shorter legs than South American maned wolves as a result of natural selection, being suited more for deciduous forests than open grasslands. She stands at about 26 1/2 inches (67.31 cm) at the shoulder, and weighs around 44 pounds (20 kg).

Spirituality

Crim is polytheistic, believing in many gods and goddesses that control the natural order.

Major Deities:
Father Sun and Mother Moon: The two main gods that Crim believes in. Thy are a mated pair destined to chase each other around the world, meeting only for a few moments as an eclipse before separating again.

3.2  Relationships

Key Relationships

  • Burn Briar started out as someone Crim met shortly after she left her den for the first time. The older maned wolf was weak and exhausted, and Crim offered to let him rest in her home. Soon, his wounds -from where or whom, Crim didn't know- healed, and he set to head out again. Crim then asked if she could come along, as she had grown into a young adult and was ready to leave for good.

The two maned wolves traveled through the forests together, and pretty soon they fell in love and decided to become mates. Burn, however, was not keen on the idea of starting a family yet, and so Crim has decided to wait until they find someplace to settle down.

6.  History

Crimson's parents were originally from South America, although they were taken up north by a band of Luperci traders specializing in "exotic goods." They managed to escape, but soon found they couldn't return to their homeland and thus were trapped in North America. They learned that staying near Luperci cities helped in the colder months, and occasionally a nicer traveler gave them food and fire to spare. They also occasionally stole from Luperci to get food like fruits -although they also ate from previously domesticated fruit trees when they were ripe- and blankets and furs to keep warm in the winter.

Fast forward a year to the birth of Crimson, their only daughter, to whom they taught everything they know about surviving in North America. She held an intense curiosity from the start, wanting to explore everything around her while also trying to meet as many different canines as possible. One of these was another named wolf named Burn Briar. She found him in the woods, suffering from a wounds on his back. Crim took him back to see if her parents could help, while Burn was brought to their den to rest.

Burn and Crim became fast friends, with Crim asking him questions about the outside world and Burn telling her all he knew. Soon enough, his wound had healed and he was set to head off back into the wilderness. Crim was enamored with the possibility of finally leaving her den, and thus began traveling with him in 2015, eventually becoming his mate. However, they have yet to start a family.
