Eindride "Endre" Stígandr is a wolfdog born and raised in the mountainous countryside of Dovrefjell, Norway. He spent the majority of his life alone, resulting in an extreme case of wanderlust that caused him to journey overseas to Nova Scottia to seek his fortune. Once he had scraped up the suffucient knowledge and currency to leave Dovre Endre departed without a second glance, eager to see the world for himself. With Aska and Olin in tow, the hybrid set out alone, eager to see the world for himself. He had heard rumors of a pack named Vinátta during his travels, a clan with Scandinavian roots that seemed to suit him perfectly, but found nothing but the remnants of a disbanded settlement upon his arrival.

Undiscouraged, the wolfdog continued his journey onwards, hoping to find a place to call his own.

PLOT OPPORTUNITY!

OOC ASSUMPTIONS!

  • Due to his recent arrival to Nova Scotia, Endre is pretty much a blank state in terms of his biases towards packs/non-luperci -- perhaps your character could offer their opinion on the matter!

Packs members may assume and reference the following without discussion/asking:

  • Endre suffers from mild inattentive-type ADHD (also known as ADD) and often loses track of his thoughts or becomes distracted
  • Endre actively avoids conversation relating to witches/magic/his own stance on religion

1.  Appearance

1.1  Basics

Essentials

  • Species: Endre is a wolfdog hybrid, though his dog heritage somewhat overpowers those of his wolf in terms of physical appearance. His size and stature are notably larger than a normal Norsk Buhund thanks to his mixed-blood, making him seem like an oversized version of a regular dog. Due to his half-and-half breed, most can tell he is a hybrid based on scent. Like most Spitz dogs, his tail curls lightly over his back.
  • Fur: Like most canines accustomed to the Northern climate, Endre has dense, insulating fur designed to combat colder weather that is a bit longer than most pure-bred Norsk Buhunds.
    • Optime Hair: In his Optime form, Endre's hair curls slightly over his eyes due to its length.
  • Facial Features: Endre's eyes are slightly droopy, leaving him with a permanent dreamy-eyed appearance. The corners of his mouth also curl naturally upwards into a mysterious smile that never seems to leave his face. His most defining characteristic are the two jagged claw marks that streak the right side of his muzzle.
  • Build and Size: Endre is not heavily muscled nor is he extremely thin, falling more towards the lean category. Though his dense coat often masks his figure, the wolfdog is surprisingly toned due to a lifetime of hunting and horseback riding. He is lightly-built for speed and agility over brute strength -- the hybrid is most comfortable fighting with his bow and arrow and is unsuited for close combat. Though much taller than dogs his breed, Endre is still a bit shy of reaching the height of an average wolf.
  • Humanization: Endre is moderately humanized. Though he usually doesn't wear heavy clothing due to his thick fur, the wolfdog usually dons a fur loincloth and leather falconry gear. He also carries a flatbow and its arrows around with him, both of which are typically slung over his back.

Forms


xx lbs (xx kg)
xx in (xx cm)

Lupus

The form Endre uses the most after Optime. In his Lupis form Endre looks very much like an oversized Norsk Buhund with an additional darker layer of fur coating his back. He usually uses this to hunt feral-style, taking advantage of his speedy and agile body.


xx lbs (xx kg)
xx in (xx cm)

Secui

In his secui form Endre’s fur lies noticeably more stiff on the whole of his body, especially prickly around his mane. The wolfdog rarely uses this form, finding the it much too bulky for hunting and too slow for travel.


xx lbs (xx kg)
xft xin (xx in / xx cm)

Optime (Preferred)

The form Endre utilizes most often. Endre's optime form is compact and lean, if somewhat hidden under his coat. Though much taller than dogs his breed, Endre is still a bit shy of reaching the height of an average wolf. His hair is slightly curly and wild-looking, though not to the point of looking unkept. He prefers this form for everyday life.

Interaction

  • Speech: Endre speaks English with an obvious Norwegian accent and often switches between the two languages, occasionally flipping to Norwegian mid-sentence or tossing in a few foreign words into his speech.
  • Scent: Leather, pine, lingering scent of (animal) blood. Endre smells like a mix between wolf and dog, one of the most obvious flags of his mixed-breed heritage.
  • Quirks, Gestures, Etc.: He shows some symptoms of his mild ADD (staring off into space mid-sentence, looks like he isn't paying attention) and will occasionally trace the scars on his face absentmindedly
  • General Posture and Body Language: His movements are relaxed and unhurried, though not exactly what one may percieve as sluggish

2.  Personality

Endre is quite the oddity. With his slightly drooping eyes and faint, ever-present smile, the wolfdog gives off an unsettling feeling of knowing something they don’t to most who encounter him.

Growing up alone in the secluded countryside of Dovrefjell has made him rather oblivious (and, unsurprisingly, immune) to most social taboos. He lacks a functioning head-to-mouth filter and oftentimes makes blunt comments or observations without hesitation due to his poor social awareness. When this particular trait is paired up with his inquisitive nature, disasters are bound to (and do) happen. He arguably feels most at home when he is deep within the wilderness, finding a sense of familiarity in the silence.

Though he is oftentimes written off as a ditzy or dim-witted individual because of his sleepy-eyed appearance or manner of speech, this is far from the case. While not exactly savvy in social situations, Endre has a sharp eye and an even sharper wit. He is fully aware of his weaknesses and often plays them up in what he perceives as potentially costly encounters, knowing that most will overlook the mistakes of a simple-minded foreigner.

His mild expression hardens when he picks up his bow, turning into a hard-set mask. This is one of the only times when his faint smile will disappear.

2.1  Ideals

Traits

  • Outlook: Realist
  • Sociability: A strange combination of extroversion and introversion. Endre is very interested in meeting and interacting with a variety of people, though he feels more at home in solitude.
  • Expression: His body posture is usually relaxed, lying in a gray area between dominant and submissive. He is submissive if need be (and vice versa).
  • Alignment: True Neutral

Motivations

  • Acknowledgement/Acceptance
  • something

Fears

  • Abandonment: something something
  • Ostracism: Rejection and exclusion are one of his biggest fears, stemming from the extreme loneliness he experienced as a child.

Biases

  • Packs: None at the moment -- likely to change. Endre had great expectations for Vinátta and was left disappointed at the news of their disbandment.
  • Non-Luperci: None at the moment -- likely to change. His neutrality is because of a lack of knowledge/influence on the matter. He hasn’t had much exposure to non-luperci.
  • Gender: Volva women are the only ones capable of witchcraft and therefore superior. Other than those who have knowledge of what he perceives to be magic, Endre has no strong bias for nor against women.
  • Sexuality: None, though he believes strongly in monogamy. As a bastard son himself, Endre greatly dislikes affairs and the unfaithful.

Sexuality

Describe your character's sexuality here -- sexual orientation (e.g., heterosexual) isn't enough of a descriptor, by the way! How about their libido (their desire for sexual activity)? How promiscuous are they? Are they monogamous or polygamous? How do they go about obtaining sexual partners (are they a nervous approacher, or a giant flirt)?

Interests

  • Likes: Hunting, falcons, horses, archery, furs, the wilderness
  • Dislikes: Excess or unnecessary work, the self-righteous, braggarts whose words aren’t justifiable
    • Infidelity

Substances

Endre has little to no exposure to mind-altering substances, making him quite open to trying them out (even if forbids him to)

Spirituality

Follows Norse paganism and was educated on the matter by his mother, a vǫlva. He was taught various rites and rituals as a child, though he was forbidden to practice them publicly due to his gender. Because of the fear installed in him from a young age, Endre keeps his religion a tightly-guarded secret.

  • Note: Endre's definition/knowledge of "volva" and their rituals differ from those of places such as Hearg Njorth, as they are two vastly different cultures and locations.

Timeline

Eindride "Endre" Stígandr was born and raised in the mountainous countryside of Dovre, Norway. He was the result of an affair between Fárbauti Alvaldr, the head of a nomadic hunting tribe of wolves, and Ingvild Stígandr,a native vǫlva, both whom neither expected nor planned his arrival. Unlike Fárbauti, however, Ingvald was not opposed to the idea of a child -- she fled the company of the tribe upon realizing her pregnancy, knowing the father of her unborn baby would not want a bastard child to live.

For the first six months of his life Endre was raised by his mother, an avid practitioner of sorcery, in the secluded mountainside of Dovrefjell. Though males were traditionally forbidden from learning the craft by societal taboos Ingrid routinely bent the rules, often disregarding them entirely in favor of passing her knowledge onto her firstborn. Endre's first memories are of hushed incantations and rites, of offerings made of blood and bone alike. Of course, due to the nature of his gender Endre was instructed to keep the subject of their little lessons a tightly-guarded secret from a young age.

Their little pocket of peace did not last long; Fárbauti, hearing the rumors of a volva and her child residing in Dovrefjell, sent a scout from his tribe to investigate the truth of the matter. Upon sighting the two he attacked, leaving Endre with two gashes down his muzzle and his mother mortally wounded. Ingvald, desperate to keep Endre alive, threatened to bring the fury of the gods upon the man if he were to harm her son. She offered him an out -- the scout would return with evidence of her death, dismissing Endre's existence as a stray rumor. The man hesitantly obliged, fearing the wrath of the gods over that of Fárbauti's.

The next months of Endre’s life he would spend alone, without the presence of another luperci to guide his growing years. Aska, his mother’s falcon, practically raised him herself; what he did not learn from her, he picked up either from passing traders or the few neighbors that would bother to visit his secluded home. Though not exactly unhappy, he was struck with a constant throbbing loneliness that would not fade with time nor distraction. Once he had scraped up the suffucient knowledge and currency to leave Dovre, Endre departed without a glance backwards. With Aska and Olin -- a Fjord stallion Endre had acquired some months previously -- in tow, the hybrid set out alone, eager to see the world for himself. He had heard rumors of a pack named Vinátta during his travels, a clan with Scandinavian roots that seemed to suit him perfectly, but found nothing but the remnants of a disbanded settlement upon his arrival. Undiscouraged, the wolfdog continued his journey onwards, hoping to find a place to call his own.
