Hope Lykoi is the younger daughter of Basilio Lykoi and Crucifix de le Poer, and sister to Faith de le Poer. She was born alongside her sister in Inferni, shortly before the events of the Second Boreas Conflict. During the way, she and her sister had been lured away from their caretaker by Boreas spy, Amariah Eld, and Tweed. The pair was later hunted down by the sisters' parents, and rescued with minor injuries.

A month before Hope shifts, the two sisters wake to a note left behind by their father. They soon gave chase after their mother, having found her at the borders with a similar note in hand. He had abandoned his family, only to die shortly afterwards as a loner. All of them were heart-broken, especially their mother, and Hope was quick to turn away from her father for his actions.

Hope had been a participant of the Inferni-Salsola War, though did not take too much of an active role, having chosen to watch after her mother and her new half-sister, Dahlia de le Poer. During the night, Salsola lit the Mansion on fire, though all of her family was able to get out safely. After the announcement of their surrender to Salsola had been made, along with the news that Inferni would be returning to their ancestral homeland on the other side of the Halcyon Mountains, she aided her family with the trip. After settling in, Faith took to looking after Dahlia while Hope began to develop her skills in animal husbandry and working with plants.

Life on the other side was harsh, and after a string of unfortunate events, Inferni disbanded. Many of its members split off to form The Cartel, but Hope and her family chose to stay behind. Misfortune plagued the family more, first the horrific death of their mother, but then Faith and Dahlia leaving for Salsola after getting pregnant. Hope remained behind with Clover and Vesper, but even they had moved on. Some time afterwards, Hope had been informed of her sister's passing, but still remained in Inferni's old lands.


In spring of 2019, Dahlia returned to her older half-sister, having left Salsola to join the rest of the Cartel. After realizing there was nothing left here, she agrees to come with her sister to also join the others in the Cartel, taking care of their animals and building up their herb stocks.

Appearance

Essentials

Basics

  • Species: Being high percentage coyote, she takes almost specifically after her mother at least in stature and scent. Her ears and tail are smaller than her sibling, much like a dog's, though bushy like a coyote.
  • Fur: Like a coyote with a pedigree, her fur remains shirt and thin though her dog heritage kicks in and makes them feel soft to the touch. In the winter months her fur thickens significantly due to her wolf heritage and grows longer to protect her from the cold.
    • Optime Hair: Her hair is kept long, much like her mother's used to be. Some of her hair often falls in front of her shoulder while the rest falls behind her.
  • Facial Features: Very feminine, coyote-sque. Her ears are smaller than the average coyote and her nose padding a little larger
  • Build and Size: Being smaller than her sister, she is the runt of her litter and was so small enough at her birth to warrant fear from Basilio that she had been born with his deformity. However, she will grow to be taller than both of her parents and take more after her grandfather, Helotes Lykoi, at least in height. She still looks like a coyote, thin and dainty with a feminine sharpness to her muzzle and curves.
    • Lupus: Small, Hope possesses a basic and yet moderately long pelt, with typical Lykoi features. Possessing shorter 'radar' ears, her only other noticeable feature is her small, bushy tail.
    • Secui: The fur around her neck thickens and lengthens. Although she gains a fair amount of muscle in this form, it is not a whole lot and she will rarely use it at all. Her paws remain relatively large.
    • Optime: Slim with feminine muscles, Hope has somewhat long hair that comes to just passed her shoulders. Her hands and paws are suitable for her size yet some what dainty like her father's.
  • Humanization: Moderate.
    • Clothing: Hope often wears a maroon colored shirk with a no sleeve, lighter maroon colored top.
    • Accessories: Wears a crucifix her father carved for her like a pendant around her neck. She also wears a silver earring on her right ear.

Personality

  • Obsessive, Quick to Anger, Anxious
    • As she gets older, she will find that she is relatively obsessive when it comes to finding the right person in her life. Due to her father's infidelity when he was with her mother, she will grow to expect that out of most men. It will make it harder for her to trust them.
    • She has her father's attitude, though much of it is reeled in by her God's teachings and her mother's lessons.
    • Like her mother, she gets really anxious around wolves or high wolf percentage hybrids and mixes. It can be a weakness or a gift, depending on how you look at it from her prospective.
  • Affectionate, Touchy, Gentle, Ambitious
    • She is very affectionate and touchy toward those she loves like her father, her mother and her sister. She can grow to be this way with just about anyone though a lot of it comes from innocence and she is likely prone to be at least a little naive around men at the beginning.
    • She is very gentle when dealing with others. It stems from her affection toward rabbits, something that will grow with time as she works with them and will spread to when she works with other animals as well.
    • Very ambitious for her age.

Interaction

  • Speech: Her voice is very soft and feminine. An appropriate example for both her pup voice and adult are: Pup and Adult
  • Scent: Coyote, herbs, rabbits, flowers, de le Poer and Lykoi families, female.
  • Quirks, Gestures, Etc.: Very touch oriented and will speak with hand and bodily motions sometimes. Pretty direct, except when it comes to things like love or things that make her nervous.
  • General Posture and Body Language: Alert, sometimes fidgety. Dominant, yet also sometimes submissive as well.

Relationships

* Does not know this person by name.

Family: Lykoi, de le Poer, Massacre, Sadira, Kimaris

Former Relations

  • Crucifix de le Poer: Crucifix is her mother and Hope would do anything for her, including protect her from her father in the event of him lashing out during one of his fits of anger. She loves her more than anyone, including her sister.
  • Basilio Lykoi: Although Basilio is her father and she loves him dearly, she learns from a younger age that there is a darkness to him that will never be fixed by God. While she wants to respect him and abide by his rules, he makes it hard to because she is always finding out something new about him that tempers her adoration. As a pup, she will follow him around like a lost pup. She will grow out of this.
  • Faith de le Poer: She loves her sister to death and would probably do anything for her, but she also is jealous of the girl for having such a beautiful tail. A few tricks here and there won't temper their relationship, will it?
  • Antioch de le Poer: She adores her uncle Antioch. He is her primary male role model and she will probably want to be like him (though that will change as she gets older and comes into her personality).
