1.  Appearance

Essie is a wolfdog puppy! She has the red coloration of her mother with mimicking markings with a black and silver trailing saddle on her back, even the cream part mimics her mother. She has the most stricking color of eyes, a bright electric violet that are a mirror to her mother’s. Her markings are mostly symmetrical save for her left front leg.

1.1  Build and Species

With husky heritage from her mother and malamute heritage from her father, Esper strongly resembles a sled dog. More looking like an elegant and slender wheel dog. Her legs in both Lupus and Secui are muscular and look like they are filled with the power to pull a sled back in the day. She has a thick double coat, perfect for winter though in the summer too much activity will leave her panting heavily and worn out. With all that fluff it seems to make her tail just seem twice its actual size, curling over her back. Her wolf side doesn't show much, and time seems to tell us that it never will.

Tail and Ears

The best was to see that she is built more of her domesticated canine blood than the wild side of a wolf is her ears and tail. Her ears seem to always stand erect, though they are tall. They are shaped more sharply than a wolf’s and they stand taller than a German Shepherd’s. Now her tail is the most striking thing next to her eyes. It arcs rather elegantly to curl tightly around her back, never relaxing from that position unless you find her asleep.

1.2  Coloration

  • Optime Hair: Chocolate (#400E02) with Red Oxide (#651604) highlights.
  • Eyes: Electric Violet (#A800FF).
  • Fur:
    • Base color and "boots" range from Red Oxide (#651604) to Totem Pole (#933509).
    • Dark saddle/mask is Tuatara (#252423) with highlights of Ironside Gray (#676664).
    • Underside and tail tip are Wheat (#F3D8AE); blends into Cape Palliser (#A56343) along the red borders.

Large size, about the size a full grown wolf that a sled dog. Well muscled frame, a sloping chest. Tail is tightly curled over her back, denoting her husky/malamute heritage. As most wolfdogs, her ears are taller and pointed. Her ears are more like a German Shephard’s. Her teeth are also longer, and tend to stay whiter than a feral wolf. In the winter she looks like a ball of fur, though any other month she still looks like a heavy sled dog.

Her black saddle spreads across to her tail and down her side. Her fur becomes longer and even fluffier, though this makes it harder to injure her. Bites usually are deflected and her fur becomes course, thick. Her tail still curls over her back; it looks like just a ball of fur. Build for power, she is sluggish with speed.

Tall and curvy. In this form her seems vulnerable compared to her other forms. Her body is tall and muscled but this form is by far her weakest. She has sharp curves and a more delicate frame. Her saddle goes back like her lupus form. Long chocolate mane. Her tail curls tightly over her back. Body type: curvy, and well toned.

Accessories

Essie does love accessories; she likes bracelets, necklaces, and her favorite anklet. She can be seen with a different necklace or bracelet, she also when she gets older will get her ears pierced.

  • She wears an anklet made by a long, thin strip of leather, colored a dark red. A soft brass color, metal trinket. The trinket is a letter C, for Catori. Given to her by Hati Catori, knowing her love for jewelry.
  • None, but maybe someday soon.

Clothes

2.  Personality

(To be expanded on by adopter!) Esper is cocky and bold, openly speaking her mind now that she has the freedom to do so. She was raised in a strict pack that emphasized control, and she learned to repress her personality in an attempt to fit in. She wants to rebel now that she is free of that environment, and may continue testing her boundaries as she grows into adulthood. She is sensitive about her appearance, and will quickly lose her temper if any insults or insinuations about her dog heritage are made. She could potentially be a healer in the future, as many prominent members of her family are trained medics including her mother.

2.1  Demeanor

(To be expanded on by adopter!) Esper often acts fearless, though this behavior is a screen to hide her self-consciousness. She speaks bluntly, occasionally delving into sarcasm or insults, but she does hold Catori family members in a greater respect and treats them better. She walks with a proud swagger, exuding confidence now that she has found where she belongs.
