By Mel

Jethro Lykoi is a young loner traveling with Marlowe de le Poer.

A coyote born into Inferni, he would remain a member until the dissolution of the Clan following the Inferni-Salsola War. Too young to be an active participant, Jethro would nevertheless witness the violence of the firsthand when his home was burnt to the ground. Though he and his family remained with Inferni as its leadership and position changed, death and misfortune would drive them all apart. Abandoned by his siblings, Jethro would later join The Cartel. As frequent instances of risky events began to unfold, Jethro's growing doubt in the group's survival would give him cause to leave The Cartel and Nova Scotia at behest of Marlowe de le Poer.

The pair traveled south as the winter stretched on until they were unable to continue. Snowfall would see them delayed in Erie, where curious events were taking place...

Key Relations

  • Marlowe de le Poer, a distant relative, was said to be a traitorous soldier from the old days of Inferni. When he did not seem to fit this expectation Jethro saw fit to re-unite him with the remnants of the Clan, where they remained for several weeks. During this time, the pair began working together more closely despite growing more isolated from the group. Jethro would eventually leave The Cartel to travel with Marlowe instead.

4.  History

The son of mates Antioch de le Poer and Versace Inferni, he was born in Inferni alongside his sister Adina during the spring following the Second Boreas Conflict. The early months of Jethro's life were largely uneventful. He grew up in a large family with many extended relatives. As a boy, he frequently got in (and out) of mischief, but did not experience real tragedy until the untimely death of his older brother Omar during the Second Boreas Conflict. The war that followed would prove to be equally terrible; and when Salsola eventually launched a surprise attack to burn down the D'Neville Mansion, Jethro was among those who survived the fire. He and his family traveled with the Clan when its new Aquila decided to abandon the territory. Not long after the coyotes began to settle into their new claim, Jethro's younger brother Credence was born.

What little peace they found was soon destroyed by his mother's untimely death. As his father began to grow distant from the family, Jethro and his sister began taking more active roles in raising their brother. Feeling the pressure of these difficult living conditions caused Jethro to grow up quickly, spearheading most of his focus into aiding the Clan and his family any way possible despite his rather surly attitude. This would not be enough to prevent the tragedies which followed, or the eventual disappearance of his father.

As conditions deteriorated within the clan and tensions rose, his siblings decided to abandon their home. Their timing would prove fortuitous; the following day, Vicira Tears would disband Inferni. Furious, Jethro found himself torn between two impulses -- to follow his siblings or to remain.

He chose to stay behind, believing they would eventually return, and joined the remnants of his clan. Towards the end of summer, the return of Marlowe de le Poer would complicate Jethro's life. Though he remained with the small group (now calling themselves The Cartel), Jethro's emotional turmoil proved susceptible to his perceptions of the group. Feeling exposed and unprepared to fully trust the group, Jethro was further isolated by outside influence. In early winter, he and Marlowe left the Cartel and Nova Scotia behind.
