By Mandi!

An arctic wolf born in Canada in 2010, Gavin could be considered a jack of all trades, having grown up in a pack that was heavily dominated by the male gender, he was able to learn a lot of different skills in his youth. This grumpy guy is a master Carpenter in Krokar. Gavin is quick tempered, impatient, intelligent, and hard working. He is skilled in woodworking, especially raft-making. He would like to be part of the defense rank, but his leg injury prevents this, although he is knowledgeable in fighting with shooting a bow and arrow. Gavin is not a particularly good teacher since he lacks the patience to do so, but he will try, especially if someone wants to learn some weapon skills since he can give pointers.

Gavin left Krokar before its disbandment at the end of October 2018, joining Lucille and others down to Old Ironsides.

2.  Personality

Gavin is quick tempered, impatient, intelligent, and hard working. He is skilled in woodworking, especially raft-making. He would like to be part of the defense rank, but his leg injury prevents this, although he is knowledgeable in fighting with shooting a bow and arrow. Gavin is not a particularly good teacher since he lacks the patience to do so, but he will try, especially if someone wants to learn some weapon skills since he can give pointers.

It's common to find him walking around with a scowl on his face, especially when his old wounds are acting up or if he finds someone practicing with weapons since he resents his inability to participate anymore.

  • Scent: Krokar, wood pulp, probably Taseko and Finlay.
  • Quirks, Gestures, Etc.: Not uncommon to be seen scowling.

3.  Relationships

Italics indicates an unknown relationship; they may be offboard or the relation is merely uncertain.

Key Relationships

  • Taseko: His caribou herding best friend. They traveled for a while before joining up with the group and are now housemates.
  • Milos Parhelion: Milos is the Quartermaster of his pack. He helped Milos and Sorcha install a cat door to their cottage in the spring of 2015 and a warp-weighted loom in summer of 2015. In return, Milos made Gavin a seaglass-green rectangular flag with the silhouette of a hammer and nails on both sides.
  • Iroquois: He spends a fair amount of time around Iroquois since they both know how to use a bow and arrow. She also helps him out when his leg injury gets to him.
  • Finlay Cormier: Gavin's housemate, along with Taseko and Zoe.

Former Relationships

  • Semini: Semini is the Production Navigator of his pack. When she first joined, she apprenticed under Gavin and learned from his woodworking craft. She now knows enough and has practiced enough to work autonomously. They share a woodworking shed and frequently work together on projects. In 2016, they discovered a way to make a varnish out of pine sap, which they use to seal the wood in their boats.
  • Malcolm: Gavin's former packmate who was killed by the cougar.

4.  Abilities

4.1  Strengths

  • Woodworking (Master): he is good at woodworking, and specifically raftmaking.
  • Archery (Master): a bow and arrow are one of the few weapons he can still actively use, so he practices as much as he can.
  • Swordsmanship (Journeyman): his skills are rusty, but Gavin can still give pointers.

4.2  Weaknesses

  • Teaching: Due to his lack of patience, Gavin isn't a very good teacher.
  • Hand-to-Hand combat: As much as he wants to be a good fighter, Gavin's old injury prevents this.

5.  History

The pack Gavin grew up in had a very uneven gender ratio. It didn't bother him as a pup because it meant there were lots of males to learn various skills from, such as woodworking and fighting, however as he got older, he saw the disadvantages to this, and ended up setting off with another male, Malcolm, to try to find somewhere else with more available females. During their travels, the pair were attacked by a cougar, and his friend was killed. Gavin was gravely injured, but lived and managed to kill the cougar as well. He was left alone to mourn and and eventually continue his journey.

Gavin eventually came across a male wolfdog named Taseko while wandering. This male had caribou with him, but he was herding instead of eating them. There was only a small group of three, and the two canines got along well, so Gavin stayed with him. Early spring had been harsh, with deep melting snow too soft to walk on and difficult to hunt in. The pair needed to trade for some supplies, and found what they needed from a pair of coydogs, Pepper and Claude, who offered to let them stick around and pitch in until the hunting got better. They met the rest of the group, which soon continued to grow, and then, sadly, shrink when two dogs were lost to a hurricane. However, all shared their skills with each other, teaching and learning.

In 2014, their home flooded and they decided it was time to move since so much was washed away. August Cormier and Lucille left to find a new home. Gavin helped salvage their homes and set off with most of the group, although several stayed behind, including Taseko, to continue sifting through the wreckage. When they arrived at their new home, they met more canines and he got to work helping everyone settle in.
