Indra Winters is one of two Salsolan princesses born – presumably – of a union between the pack’s former Lord Commander, Lokr Revlis, and its Gamekeeper, Osrath Eternity; the truth is not quite so clean cut as that however, for while her sister Elphaba Revlis is truly her father’s daughter, Indra is the result of a long-standing love affair between their mother and Dullahan Eternity.

As a child she was sent away to her grandfather’s homeland of Airgid Gleann in the hope that she might change some of her less admirable qualities; it was during her time there that she was proclaimed to be a living variant of the Macha Stag of her family’s tribe, and this was met with both joy from her family and outrage from others, who potentially saw this as a continued grasp at power. Irritated by the backlash she received for something she never sought, she fled Ireland once she attained adulthood, and fled to the deserts of the middle east, where she was involved in a religious civil war.

Upon her return, a foe-turned-friend, Ros O'Sionna, confessed his feelings for her, and she wed him in a very private handfasting ceremony. Though they returned to Salsola with the intention of living a quiet life together, fate had other plans; they returned to find her home recovering from the Second Boreas Conflict, and renewed political intrigues forced Indra’s interests elsewhere. Discovering that her closest mentor, Rafael Salcedo, had lost his arm in the war sparked anger in the young woman, and she fought desperately to pull him out of his depressed stupor, certain that he might do something foolish otherwise.

It was during this time that she became acquainted with Lilia Salcedo, his niece, who would become a close friend, and Neith Heiwa, a boy that Ros took an interest in. When war broke out between Inferni and Salsola, she participated in scouting and reconnaissance missions — including the rescue of Neith, a prisoner of war — until an injury sustained during the Battle of Drifter Bay put her out of action. In the days that followed she learned of Ros' death on the battlefield and, instead of dealing with her grief, threw herself into what she considers the betterment of Salsola. For her actions during the war, she was given the job of Milite upon its conclusion.

Her pseudo-father's banishment resulted in a political shift within Indra, though even she has yet to examine the complexities of her allegiances. Perhaps as a result of this, she became — to all appearances — less interested in Salsola, and instead focused on her budding romance with Lilia Salcedo, which resulted in the birth of their first children during the early summer months of 2018; Magnus, Clementine, Baltasar, and Lyra Salcedo.


She is currently ranked a Tradesman of Salsola.

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

  • Seeing Indra around Salsola, esp. at the borders or in the Pine Barrens, or training (krav maga, bow-and-arrow, or tooth-and-claw, etc.).
  • General conversation made by your character, as Indra is highly unlikely to respond. Specific conversations, especially conversations which may later affect RP, should be PMed before posting.

1.  Appearance

1.1  Basics

Interaction

  • Speech: Modeled after Clémence Poésy, Indra has a bracing voice — like she doesn’t use it often — and has a slightly European accent of undeterminable origin. In addition to this, she speaks with little-to-no inflection. Fluent in English, German, Gaelic, Spanish, and French with fluidity. She is capable of mimicking foreign accents on an as-needed basis.
  • Scent: Salsola; marshy, salty, windswept. Will frequently smell like her sister and parents, and disguises her scent with American wintergreen, bog laurel, wild mint, and woodsmoke when beyond the border.
  • Quirks, Gestures, or Habits: Likes to walk coins across her knuckles, and will likely paraphrase your character’s words in an attempt to convince them she has real empathy in relation to what they’re saying. Will rob the dead.
  • General Posture and Body Language: Dominant, despite being minimally expressive — is a little more ‘old school’ in that she looks for obvious submission in others, i.e., lowering the body, folding ears, tucking tail, etc. Very efficient and quiet, Indra walks with a heel-to-toe step, though her overall bearing radiates a possibility of hostility and an acceptance for violence.

Essentials

Abridged Version

Of relatively average height, weight, and overall build, Indra appears almost innocuous at first glance. The only real note worth mentioning is her complete heterochromia — one eye (left) being a pale blue-green and the other completely silver (right).

Beneath a thick double coat courtesy of her primarily wolf-dog lineage, however, her shoulders are slightly broad and her muscles are wiry, lending credibility to the fact that she is, above all else, an incredible athlete. Almost completely wolf in appearance, the only hint of doggishness are the white wisps along her stomach, tail, and throat. While not the fastest or the strongest in overall appearance, she is a tour de force when endurance comes into play.

Bears a striking resemblance to her grandfather's brother, Baratheon Winters.

Indra suffers from an unknown, likely fictitious (in that it doesn't formally exist in diagnostic books) empathy disorder; she is not incapable of feeling empathy, but it is highly diminished.

By: San

  • Aloof, Antagonistic, Dangerous:

Indra Winters is an extremely well-contained force of nature, her outward expression tends to lean toward chilly glances and, sometimes, brief flashes of agitation. A malignant narcissist through-and-through, she thinks highly of herself and her immediate family, and therefore holds them to a high degree of responsibility than others she may come across. Under certain circumstances — those within the Law as Salsola defines it — she can also become overwhelmingly violent and, to a certain degree, enjoys doing so.

Keeping in mind the picture painted above, it’s important to consider that Indra does not suffer from either psychopathy or sociopathy. Consider, rather, that empathy (or compassion) is a spectrum, and that she moves from one end to the other freely and without inhibition. Turning her emotions on and off is a process she’s constantly working on improving, all while accepting the risk that one day she may wake up and realize she can’t consciously transition back and forth anymore.

Unbothered by the opinions of those she deems superficial, the Winters girl frequently eschews social norms and will refuse to wear clothing, speak to those she thinks have slighted her, or do things simply to be contrary (e.g., getting really muddy when told to be presentable, moving someone’s belongings around).

Unquestionably an apex predator, she enjoys the thrill of the hunt, both on four legs and two, though her choice of game varies wildly from animals to those of her own species, depending on the situation. Interestingly, Indra is also completely reasonable and will not kill indiscriminately or without need and does not seek to spontaneously upset the natural order of things. Due, perhaps, in part to her true paternal lineage (and the implications therein), she sometimes struggles with the concept of control, and, having accepted that there are things outside those bounds, believes she is ultimately her own master.

  • Enigmatic, Perceptive, Uncanny:

Decidedly unambitious, Indra consciously chose a path that would allow her the most anonymity, freedom, and a chance for supervised brutality. Moving easily within the strictures laid down, she functions in a ghostly manner, operating at her own steady pace and in a direction of her choosing while remaining at the beck and call of those who lead. It should be said, perhaps, that she is not insane as most would define it — she does not hear voices, makes conscious/well-thought-out choices, and understands the difference between right and wrong, but nothing matters so much as the personal consequences of her actions.

Despite all of this she is extremely stable — unshakable, even — in the face of adversity, and welcomes direct orders as they give her purpose and direction while removing the possibility of doubt.

In conclusion, Indra is an incredibly opportunistic woman who welcomes hardship and is very, very good at blending in. If it isn’t in her own self-interest (and, to some degree, that of Salsola) it is very unlikely that she’ll do something, whether it be good or bad.

2.1  Ideals

Interests

  • Obsessions: —
  • Likes: Stargazing, combat, carving and whittling, hunting, solitude.
  • Dislikes: Conversation, distractions, reading/writing/scholarly pursuits (due to dyslexia), nosiness.

Traits

Commandments:
”You shall kill to advance yourself.”
“You shall aid those who aid you and harm those who harm you.”
“Will not take sides in a conflict that doesn't affect your survival.”
“Will abstain from needless torture.”

Fears

  • Infirmity: As an athlete and soldier of some repute, being unable to physically act or permanently losing the use of a limb would be a tremendous blow to the pale girl. To say this is a fear, however, greatly overstates the amount of thought that goes into the matter and constitutes anxiety; beyond acknowledging this fact, Indra very rarely gives it more than a passing thought.
  • Slavery: Strong-willed, independent, and fiercely private, to find herself in a position of subservience would likely end in her death, a conclusion she finds most distasteful. Without the freedom to carry out her violent predilections, Indra would presumably do poorly in a situation where menial tasks were doled out to her; because of this, she has privately decided that, should slavers set themselves upon her, she will either kill them or be killed by them.

Motivations

  • Salsola: While not necessarily loving its people — for she finds them uncanny and deceitful, oftentimes working against each other to reach the same ends — Indra loves the land Salsola has claimed, and sometimes acts as its mighty steward; owing little allegiance to the crown, she patrols from the salt shore to the shadows at the base of the Halycon, and will defend the Thistle Kingdom unto the death.
  • Herself: Narcissistic to the extreme, Indra is a pragmatic woman whose primary thought is usually for her own well-being. To this end she will not put herself in harms way for another unless she sees only the opportunity for success, which is unlikely. This has made her a singular creature who amasses her own wealth, allies, and reputation that is unattached to her family or pack.

Biases

  • Packs: Based on Salsola's pack biases.
  • Non-Luperci: In a public setting will agree that they’re inferior, personally doesn’t care either way.
  • Age: Somewhat ageist—believes old people should just give up and die already, thinks children are useless piles of fur.

Sexuality

  • Indra is a predominantly heterosexual, but more than incidentally homosexual, and it’s likely that Indra will have little-to-no interest in begetting heirs or furthering her bloodline. Neither dominant nor submissive. Oddly enough, she is strictly monogamous and would not stray from one partner to the next without greatly considering the pro's and con's.
    • Experiences secondary sexuality, whereupon she likely won't feel any sort of sexual desire during the beginning of a relationship but will develop lustful yearnings over time.
    • Dislikes traits such as bullheadedness and an unwillingness to compromise. Desires her autonomy above all else.

Substances

  • Has a strong aversion to alcohol and drugs due to the fact that they tend to dull her otherwise sharp senses. Greatly prefers adrenaline rushes and the high that comes from dangerous situations.
    • Will feign drunkenness/being high if she thinks it’ll get her something.
    • Doesn’t care if you drink or get high.
  • Fond of tobacco, though she doesn't smoke often.

Spirituality

  • Essentially incapable of forming her own opinions on the matter, Indra is largely agnostic, and believes that even if there were a pantheon of gods, they would have no overt interest in the doings of those below them.
    • The only solid belief she adheres to is one of her own — that if adhering to religion is the only reason you're on your best behavior (or, conversely, it's the reason you harm others) then you're really not a force for good (or bad).
  • While not religious, Indra is spiritual on some level. This is due in some part to encountering her half-brother Maugrim as a youth. She is largely resistent to the powers and abilities of spirits, perhaps because of others' belief that Morrigan, the Macha Tribe's patron goddess, has laid a heavy hand on her.
  • Knowledgable on the subjects of Khalifism and the Coisricthe religion as well as a number of Salsolan rituals, but doesn't put any stock into them.

2.2  Family: Eternity, de le Poer, Winters

Key Family Relationships

  • Lokr Revlis: Even when it became abundantly clear to Indra that Lokr was not her biological father, she failed to tell him out of love for him; assured by his constant presence and doting that she was his favorite, they maintained a close relationship for nearly two years. During the Battle of Drifter Bay, however – whereupon she suffered a grievous injury and the loss of her romantic partner, Ros -- his continued lack of real, tangible presence in her life became readily apparent. Frustrated and hurt beyond belief that he was not there to support her, she made it clear to him that she no longer intended to include him in her life as much as she had in the past. This irreconcilably altered the dynamic between them, and though she does still love him like a father, she doesn’t trust in his judgement or his ability to protect her.
  • Elphaba Revlis: In a rather unsurprising turn of events, Elphaba Revlis and Indra’s sibling relationship is remarkably similar to that of their mother and her sister; the real difference is that though they are extremely different and will undoubtedly take different paths in life, they respect this about each other and do not seek to undermine or otherwise threaten the other’s existence. Instead, they work in tandem with one another — Elphaba, being highly political, protects her sister via schemes and magic, while Indra wards her back in a much more physical manner. They don’t always get along, but they don’t work against each other either.

Family Tree

* through adoption, though she considers them her own children. ** unaware of any full-blooded siblings.

  • Extended Family: Indra is also related, in some degree, to every member of the Lykoi and D'Angelo families.

Family Relationships

  • Osrath Eternity: As with many of Indra’s various connections, her relationship with her mother Osrath Eternity is strained somewhat by her lack of emotion. Throughout her adolescence the blonde woman favored her for what — at the time — seemed like no apparent reason, though an eventual conversation led to the realization that Lokr was not in fact her father, but her mother’s brother. This favoritism rapidly dissipated, however, and it has become apparent that their mother-daughter relationship is not mutually beneficial; Osrath protects her but Indra rarely sees fit to do the same, having little-to-no need.
  • Salvia Eternity: Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Duis vitae ornare libero. Duis libero arcu, placerat quis dui nec, volutpat placerat ipsum. In vitae feugiat urna, eget malesuada orci. Mauris iaculis vitae orci vel lacinia. Nam iaculis facilisis enim, vitae vulputate felis. Nullam posuere erat ac rutrum euismod. Nulla porta mauris at mauris imperdiet aliquam.

 

  • Dullahan Eternity: Only after the nature of his relationship with her mother became apparent did Indra take any real interest in her uncle (and biological father), Dullahan Eternity. Before this he was merely an attentive uncle who functioned primarily as a tutor in all things combat related. Following the revelation she has taken a begrudging interest in the goings on of his life, though is quite secretive about this in an attempt to preserve her parents’ relationship.
  • O'Riley Eternity: Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Duis vitae ornare libero. Duis libero arcu, placerat quis dui nec, volutpat placerat ipsum. In vitae feugiat urna, eget malesuada orci. Mauris iaculis vitae orci vel lacinia. Nam iaculis facilisis enim, vitae vulputate felis. Nullam posuere erat ac rutrum euismod. Nulla porta mauris at mauris imperdiet aliquam.

2.4  Pack Relations

Key Pack Relationships

  • Rafael Salcedo: A one-time mentor, Indra considers Rafael to be another one of her mother's creatures; despite this, she also thinks of him as something like an uncle, even if they no longer train together to quite the extent she would like.
  • Lilia Salcedo: Indra is equal parts perplexed and dismayed by Lilia’s apparent fondness for her; having so carefully built up her walls and encouraged others opinions of her, she was surprised to find that none of this phased the Salcedo woman. Though they initially met through Rafael, his diminishing interest in anything martial forced the two together, and in time they found each other seeking out one another’s company. Her feelings on the matter have by and large been eclipsed by other, more pressing matters, but she is very fond of the foreign-born girl.
    • It is worth noting that while Indra appreciates Lilia's free-spirited nature and understands she can more than adequately defend herself if the need should arise, Indra will protect her at every turn, given the opportunity to do so. Why?

3.  Abilities

Animal Care

  • Education and Learning: Her mother, aunt, and grandmother all made efforts to teach her some rudimentary skills, though these lessons failed to stick.
  • Beyond her ability to ride and an inexplicable affinity for birds, Indra knows nothing about animals.

Hunting

  • Education and Learning: Taught primarily by her father, Indra's game hunting skills are generally average, as she much prefers fighting. Her lethal aim (and precision) with a bow does hide this a bit.
  • Lightly colored, Indra has been forced to adapt to this — and done remarkably well doing so — with the aid of dark (or light, depending on the season) clothing. This talent for disguise translates to other aspects of her life as well.
  • Indra possesses high endurance, which helps to mask her overall average strength and speed.

Marauding

  • Education and Learning: Being the Lord Commander's daughter and the Boss' granddaughter has opened many doors for Indra, including the opportunity to train with Salsola's best and brightest.
  • Indra’s primary focus and motivation is combat — any opportunity to shed the blood of another while remaining on the side of Salsolan Law is one she will actively seek out. Taught by a number of tutors (Lokr, Salvia, Basilaris, Rafael, and Dullahan) who sussed out her natural aptitude for it, she is extremely dangerous at any range. Her broad shoulders and tapered hips combined with an overall lean build help disguise this lifestyle, but make no mistake; her draw on a bow is quick and she closes like a freight train.
  • Her introduction to hand-to-hand combat came through her grandmother, Salvia Eternity and father, Dullahan Eternity, and while traces of their krav maga can be seen in her technique, it most closely resembles Sambo. When engaged in combat, she's extremely careful to stay off the ground and keep her hands free due to the limitations thereafter; she's highly skilled at taking on multiple opponents.
  • Primarily a bowhunter, Indra’s skill in this area cannot be denied, though it is admittedly surpassed by the best of hunters. Of particular note is her affinity for tracking, even if her chosen prey is rarely comprised of game animals. She's capable of resuming the hunt after it has rained and through rough terrain.
  • Her careful heel-to-toe step gives her a feline-like quality, and she will instinctively look for the quietest way to approach anyone whether they're a target or not.

Medicine

  • During her time spent in Airgid Gleann and beyond, Indra learned the rudiments of battlefield medicine; in the desert, this saved her life. She is capable of treating minor wounds (scrapes, bruises), setting broken limbs (albeit not well), and patching herself up well enough to keep moving, wherein she might be able to find someone better equipped to treat her.
    • All of this knowledge is applied, primarily, to herself, and is considered a survival skill and not necessarily the skillset of a tried and true healer.
  • A subset of her minor medical skills is sewing, a skill she picked up in Ireland and pursued during her time in Lycia while recovering from an illness. What she already knew was augmented by the women there, who’ve spent much of the last thirty years or so honing their skills. Instead of making tapestries, however, Indra uses this primarily to stitch her own wounds.
    • She can make small fixes your clothes though — if you ask very, very nicely.

Socio-Policial

  • Education and Learning: Her parents made a great efforts to teach her how to read and write as a youth, but they were almost entirely ineffectual; still, she has learned some tricks.
  • In a bizarre twist of fate, Indra is all but impervious to manipulation due to her overall lack of interest in the dealings of others. This holier-than-thou belief, however, is likely to get her in trouble.
  • Ironically, Indra has a knack for picking up foreign languages as well as high speech and, to a lesser degree, low speech. She uses the latter to communicate with her bird.
  • Indra cannot read or write, as she is dyslexic and easily frustrated by her own foils. As such, she must rely on others to read things aloud and take dictation.
  • Politically speaking, Indra is weak, and she knows it; a self-labelled separatist that still maintains pack ties only because she feels she must, Indra is vulnerable to the machinations of others.
  • Having very few values to begin with, Indra is able to compartmentalize extremely well; this is to avoid any chance of cognitive dissonance, and made all the much easier by her overall lack of genuine emotion. Instead of black and white, she sees a world that is completely grey, and rarely agrees or disagrees with something save for the fact that it exists or is a thing.

May

Upon rejoining Salsola, Indra immediately sets about reforging old ties and creating a couple new ones, all the while introducing her friend from Airgid Gleann to the Thistle Kingdom’s intricate hierarchal system. Much of her time is spent investigating the Second Boreas Conflict — which she missed by months — and settling into old routines.

October

With war having come to Salsola's doorstep, Indra sees an opportunity to become a member of the Milite; thus, she trains often with Lilia and even helps launch a rescue mission to rescue Neith Heiwa. During the Battle of Drifter Bay, however, she is grievously injured while defending her aforementioned sparring partner. Ros Murtagh is also discovered to have died on the Bay, though the reason for his presence there remains unknown.

    Salsola, with Lilia Salcedo. Badly injured during the Battle of Drifter Bay, Indra is recuperating but feverish and — having learned of Ros O'Sionna's death on the Bay — refusing painkillers.

  10. [M] terrify us with your tales of a tragic loss
    Salsola, with Lokr Revlis. As the month draws to a close, Indra unleashes on her father.

Their dynamic is altered, perhaps permanently.

November

While convalescing in the Salcedo household, Salsola launches a full-scale retaliatory attack on Inferni, burning parts of it to the ground. Frustrated by her inability to participate, much of the month slips by unnoticed... until its conclusion. When a pack meeting is called, it is announced that Lokr Revlis has been banished and named Pentiti; in his place, Indra's sister Elphaba is named the Hierophant.
