by Kitty

Finlay "Fin" Cormier was the second born in a litter of four puppies: three boys and one girl. His family was very close despite how much traveling they did apart as traders. He grew up learning to fish, sail on rivers, and trade, but eventually discovered that being a warrior was his favorite thing to do. As such, he's a member of Krokar's Defense path.

A lover as well as a fighter, Finlay attempted to sleep his way around the Northern packs - Elise Morgan and Fionnlagh Cormier are the products of a fling with Ailie Morgan, but more recently Fin's heart has been stolen, with much angst, by Walker Dupree.

2.2  Tropes & overview

Boisterous Bruiser

Deadpan Snarker

Big Brother Instinct

Proud Beauty

Finlay is pretty and he knows it (and he'll remind you if he gets a chance). He's vain and he doesn't know it. He is a bit flamboyant, and often very happy and personable (though he can be snarky with those he knows well). However, he takes whatever jobs he is given very seriously - but that doesn't mean he can't have fun while doing them! Sometimes his definition of "fun" includes fun at others' expense, but he generally means well. Being snarked at by Finlay is a sure sign that he likes you - he treads more lightly around those he doesn't know, unless they insult him or his family.

Being so personable, he is willing to teach others to fight, or help them learn any of his other skills as well.

He's a flirtatious creature and will make passes at males and females alike.


Since the fall of Krokar Fin has grown a little more serious - the times where he jokes around are becoming less frequent. He's grown even more protective of his sister and her children.

3.  Relationships

3.1  Family

* - adoptive

Key Relations

  • Gus Cormier: His younger brother and Captain. The two get along fairly well, but aren't without their spats.
  • Lucille: his sister-in-law. He and Lucille get along famously.
  • Tybalt Cormier: Fin's older brother. They two get along fairly well, mainly because they both enjoy fighting. They have a friendly, competitive relationship.
  • Eliza Cormier: Fin's little sister. He's generally protective of her, and she has him wrapped around her little finger... mostly.
  • Fionnlagh Cormier: Fin's son by Ailie Morgan, also known as "Fin Jr."
  • Elise Morgan: Fin's daughter by Ailie Morgan.
  • Ailie Morgan: A gorgeous and smart dog who Fin accidentally had children with.
  • Walker Dupree: After punching Walker, thinking he was a slaver, the two began a sexual relationship... no feelings involved here whatsoever. Okay, maybe some.

Minor Relations

  • Reluceo Vela: A loner Finlay met in the Northern Tides. She tried to nick his horse and he threw a fish at her. Relu later joined Krokar, to Fin's chagrin.
  • Aenan Pyr: A handsome wolfdog who Fin had a bit of a crush on before he met Walker.
  • Shore Stormbringer: Oops, did he sleep with her?

5.  History

Overview

Finlay was born to a family of fishermen, the second in a litter of four. Like the rest of the group, he learned to sail on a river at a young age, having been in a canoe before he could shift. When he was young, he was commonly the target of his older brother, Tybalt's attempts to play fight and assert dominance. At frist, Ty always won, but eventually, Fin became better at fighting and learned to be quicker due to his being smaller than his brother. The brothers fought often in general, often with their sister, Eliza, as the peacekeeper. Eventually, the relationship between Fin and Ty shifted from competition to more friendly, and Fin became the more dominant, outgoing one.

He commonly stayed behind while his parents traveled for trade so that he could make sure everything that needed to be done at home actually got done. One of the times he stayed home, a hurricane struck, and he learned of it when Tybalt returned home without them. Sometime after that, his other brother, Gus, came home, bringing along a female sheepdog, Lucille. He and Lucille hit it off from the beginning.

The group managed to move forward from his parents' deaths until their home flooded, forcing them to look for somewhere new. They found "somewhere" in Krokar, and eventually Fin found himself in the Defense ranks.

One day in late 2016 he punched a mysterious guy and, through much angsting and denial, the two eventually developed a relationship.
