2.  Personality

Elsie is very high energy, spunky, goofy and a bit of a spaz. She gets excited easily, even about little things, and tends to make up songs about her llama to entertain herself while she's traveling. Her emotions are big; if she's happy, it's obvious, same with sad, angry, or however she's feeling. Elsie doesn't tend to get embarrassed easily, and if she does she simple laughs at herself.

She's also somewhat nosey and a bit of a meddler. Although Elsie has found that sometimes others don't like when she pries, she does it because she cares and she wants to see her loved ones happy - especially if there's something she can do to help. Elsie loves to learn and will try anything once, even if she thinks she's going to fail miserably at it.

As a trader, Elsie does her best to be as professional as possible. She is not one to try to cheat someone out of a good deal, and if she comes across someone who is clearly not an experienced trader, she will try to teach them if they want her to.

3.  Relationships

Key Relations

  • Esther Vernie Hennamin: Esther is Elsie's great-aunt, whom she came to Cercatori d'Arte to live with. The two get along quite well and are often together when Elsie is in Thornbury. The pair work together to make things for Elsie to trade, and sometimes Esther accompanies her.

Minor Relations

Former Relations

  • Skylee Foxleigh: the two went on a trading trip to Freetown.
  • George Tibalt: Elsie formed a crush on him after they met, but has not seen him since.

4.  Skills and Inventory

Abilities

Sewing (Master)

Ever since she gained hands, Elsie has been sewing. She practiced a lot with her mother so she could contribute to their family's trade.

Leatherworking (Journeyman)

Elsie is capable of making basic leather and horse bridals, along with bags, belts, and glove. She is unable to tan hides, though, so she must trade for them. Everything she makes has the usual luperci-made quality.

Reading and Writing (Journeyman)

Part of Elsie's ability to sew and learn techniques comes from leaning to read, which she has been doing since before she could shift. Afterwards, she was also taught to write so that she could keep in contact with family while she was away on trade trips.

Flute playing (Journeyman)

Many of Elsie's relatives learned to play instruments as a way to entertain themselves while on their travels. She learned the flute from her father, who also played.

Combat - dagger (Apprentice)

Elsie is learning to defend herself with her dagger. She practices as much as she can.

Archery (Apprentice)

She is learning how to use a bow and arrow, although currently she is not very accurate.

Inventory

Personal Items

Elsie owns mainly sewing supplies, books on tailoring, and other items for her to make trade goods, along with her llama cart to haul things.

Trade Items

Elsie generally trades things that she has made from cloth or leather: clothes, blankets, scarves, basic armor, and horse tack. She cannot make saddles.

In return, she seeks cloth, leather, books on sewing or related subjects, and other sewing supplies.

Members of Cercatori d'Arte are welcome to ask Elsie to be on the lookout for something they want, and she will also make Outpost trips for them.

5.  History

5.1  Pre-Souls

Elsie was born to a family of traders that had become quite spread out over time. Most were primarily coyote, although some were more wolf, and others mixed with dog. She was the middle puppy of several siblings, and they grew up with the usual amount of sibling rivalry. Elsie's childhood was spent as a mixture of learning her family's trade business and just having fun. She learned to read, although her mother had to turn pages for her so she did not tear them, and learned how fabric patterns worked as well, although she could not use them. By the time she was six months old, Elsie was more than ready to shift so she could have some hands.

Finally, she shifted around six months old, and immediately got to work learning to sew from her mother, as well as learning to write. She continued accompanying her father on trading trips and learned a little bit of self-defense with her dagger. Her brother learned much more and eventually stayed with a pack of wolf hybrids so he could continue learning combat. Elsie's extended family slowly grew further apart as their trade routes expanded, although they kept in touch via letters with various birds.

One of the hobbies her family had when they gathered was story-telling, which included old family stories, such as one about Elsie's great-aunt, Esther Vernie Hennamin. The Elder kept in touch, and eventually Elsie decided that she wanted to go check on her. Her mother agreed that it would be a good idea, and so after sending a message to Esther, Elsie sent out to find this pack she lived in, as described by some of her relatives.

5.2  In Souls

Previous Packs and Ranks

Cercatori d'Arte (Jan 2014 - Present)
Proletarian

Elsie arrived in Souls in January 2014 with her llama, Carl; two sheep, Sage and Woolsby; and an owl, Arnold. She brought with her a cartload of supplies for the long trip and eventually arrived in Cercatori d'Arte. She began to get to know the area as well as her great-aunt, and eventually decided she wanted to stay. In February of 2014, she made it official.

Once she was accepted by Esmeralda Collins, Elsie immediately set about getting to know her packmates and doing some trading trips. She also met Lola from Casa di Cavalieri. Her first big trip was one where she went to Casa di Cavalieri and then Cour des Miracles one right after another. She was able to do some trading at each, including seeing Lola for some leather armor, and then meeting up with Faolan Kido, Mistral de l'Or, her former packmates. She was also able to teach Abigail Sadira about trading.

Afterwards, she spent some time in Cercatori d'Arte, getting to know her packmates a bit more and working with Esther to make more trade goods. Then in the spring, she and Skylee Foxleigh decided that they wanted to go to Freetown so that Esther could have a pony and come with Elsie when she went trading. The trip took them first to Vinatta and was successful. Since then Esther was able to accompany Elsie periodically as she continued building trade relationships with nearby packs.
