1.  Appearance

1.1  Essentials

Basics

A product of two well traveled and tight-knit families, Jin spends a good portion of her day grooming her otherwise unruly fur. She is too humble for extravagant appearances, though she feels an urge to look digestible to the general public, at the least. When she was able to, she used to make her own clothing, usually simple dresses, the kind that made her feel small and unnoticed. That is just the way Jin prefers it (despite this, she has a rather large chest in Optime form, and a common 'desirable' shape). Her coat and smile are warmth incarnate, Jin does not hide her emotions in either her posture or her expression. While she isn’t as quick to voice what’s on her mind, a perceptive individual may know what she’s thinking just by looking at her.

Common of her dog heritage, she retains a pink nose in colder weather. It may sometimes regain a dark pigment in the summer, if only partially. Her paw pads are a mixture of pink and brown, and her claws are all black. Surprisingly, she lacks any kind of black coloration on her fur. In its place is a dark chocolate brown, coloring her shoulders, ears, and hindquarters darker. Her chest and underbelly are a beige color, while the base color of her fur is a colorful copper.

  • Scent: Spices, herbs, horse (from Bienvenida)
  • Quirks, Gestures, Etc.: When particularly anxious, she cannot sit still, and will twiddle her thumbs or wave her tail. Or both.
  • General Posture and Body Language: She likes to keep herself smaller than others, but that typically doesn't mean she needs to hunch, since she's already so short!

2.  Personality

TL;DR: A basic summary in paragraphs or bullet points.

2.1  Traits

Expression

  • Outlook: Generally tries to be optimistic, but prone to bouts of worry
  • Sociability: Taking up a supporting role, Jin requires a constant small amount of attention—she needs someone around to support; but she is not necessarily extroverted, as she uses alone time to recharge.
  • Expression: Always submissive
  • Alignment: Lawful Good*
    • "Will support their family even if it means personal discomfort."
    • "Seeks secure employment, believing hard work will pay off in the end."
    • "Considers the needs of the community in personal life."
    • "Will take actions to aid others during times of crisis, even if unprofitable to do so."
    • "Obeys all personal contracts."

*Though Jin herself values the law, unlike most Lawful Good characters, she will usually not attempt to uphold it.

Motivations

  • Lifelong Home: Never has Jin been uncomfortable with playing the 'housewife'. She desires to settle down as soon as possible, and keep building upon that settlement for future generations to come. She also desires a mate and many children, though she doesn't voice this dream to others in fear of coming off as inappropriate or needy.
  • Assisting Others: From childhood, Jin wanted to be a supporter, not a leader. Many of her most trained skills center around this, and she is determined to keep cultivating these talents so that she may be ready to deal with any problem.

Fears

  • Ostracism, solitude

Interests

  • Likes: Creativity, good food & drink, slow & steady work
  • Dislikes: The fact that it's impossible to hug everyone at once :'(

Biases

  • Species: As a hybrid of all the four main Luperci species, Jin would be hard-pressed to form any bias in this area, and likely never will. She is even open to chatting with creatures that are capable of it!
  • Non-Luperci: She doesn't judge them. She would feel bad for a canine that was immune to the virus (and thus has no choice in the matter)—but she has no idea they exist.
  • Gender: Jin is typically more frightened of aggressive women than she is of aggressive men, though it may be a stretch to call this a bias.

Sexuality

Jin has a specific type: manly men who make perfect bumbling husbands. This is to match her comfort in taking the role of housewife. She wants to have lots of puppies, but is not necessarily a sexual being—it's clear she does care more about the end result, than the process taken to achieve it. Not that she knows much about the process anyway—she is a blushing virgin and likely will be for some time, thanks to her family keeping an eye on her for her whole life. Her father usually shoos off potential suitors that catch her eye by giving them mean shovel talks. Likely because of these circumstances, Jin is modest, shy, and always appropriate—she will gasp in horror at any scandalous speech.

Spirituality

Describe your character's spirituality. What do they believe? Do they believe in (a) higher power(s)? Do they perform rituals? What do they believe after death? Do they have a creation myth? Maybe this section is long enough to require more space.

Substances

What substances has your character tried? Are they highly experimental or not at all inclined to try? Do they have an opinion on those who do indulge in "illicit" substances?

2.2  Skills


Progression: Neophyte ↠ Known ↠ Accomplished ↠ Grandmaster

Social Skills

  • Education and Learning: Born a 'people-person' (if you'll forgive the human term), Jin del Lin has high compassion for other Luperci and has spoken to creatures from all walks of life. Thanks to her family's history in trade, as well as her birthplace, she picked up a few skills from the community around her, on top of her natural personality. Her tendency towards honesty, good prices, and hard work, helped her build a good reputation among many of Portland's residents. Read more: History
  • Care-giving (Accomplished): Jin finds great value in getting in at least one 'good deed for the day', and taking care of others actually helps her to remain calm and happy herself. As such, those that are friendly themselves usually take a quick liking to her—since she rarely places burdens onto others and has a lot of love to give. In Portland, she frequently offered free assistance to older or disabled residents of the town, including Mack. Putting up with his constant complaining, general sour disposition, and foul, alcoholic mouth helped steel her. Now there is very little that phases her speech-wise—she is extremely difficult to anger, especially through words alone.
  • Appraisal (Known): It's rare Jin makes any transaction without the wise assistance of her father, but thanks to her attentive nature and the surroundings of her hometown, she now has a knack for knowing an item's value just by looking at it. Naturally, she is most familiar with the items that she herself is interested in—or items her father wants.
  • Networking (Known): Staying in Portland for much of her life, Jin made a name for herself as soon as she was old enough to shift. Her youthful energy breathed a bit of new life into the long established trade there—she is a friend of anyone that wanted a friend.
  • Multilingual (English, Chinese, Spanish, Turkish): From birth, Jin had exposure to many different languages, thanks to her cultured family. She picked up these alongside English due to living in Portland. Jin is considered fluent (that is, with her age taken into account) in three of the four languages she knows: these being English, Chinese, and Spanish. She continues to be exposed to further Spanish due to traveling with her father, the native Spanish speaker of her family. Her Chinese may begin to rust if fallen out of use, although as of right now she is still commonly using it since Eun-ji wished her to. As for her Turkish, she has only memorized a few common phrases—other teachings from her mother will likely be forgotten.
  • Pictography (Known): The Sūnzi pictographs were taught to her by her mother. Her artistic skills aren't outstanding, but they get the job done. When she was a bit younger, she used it to write simple fictional stories with her brother, Roy.
