1.  Appearance

Joy is a mostly-black wolf with white markings on her face and belly. She has rich, bright blue eyes.

Joy is a mix of Eastern Timber Wolf and Great Plains Wolf and Dog: specifically, Welsh Sheepdog. She inherits her colouration from her Great Plains Wolf and Dog heritage, while her build is derived from her Eastern Timber Wolf heritage. She has a thin and somewhat slender-looking appearance.

She is often seen walking with a staff and prefers to wear blue feathers in her fur near her right ear.

1.1  Coloration

  • Eyes: Cerulean Blue (#2660B7).
  • Fur:
    • Primarily Ebony (#0C0B1D).
    • Lighter Silver (#C6C6C6) chest, stripe underneath the eyes, spots above eyes, inside of ear, and back legs

2.  Personality

Joy is, coincidentally, a rather stern young woman with a very strong sense of self and a desire to do good. She has a forceful personality, and as a healer, often imposes her indomitable will on her patients. She is of the opinion that she is most often right, and although she will accept constructive criticism, she does have a limit and when pushed too far, she will snap. She does not have a temper necessarily, but a strong sense of pride and will defend it relentlessly.

She has a sharp tongue and a mind for double entendres, taking a dry and dark sense of humour out of her intentionally ill-placed jokes.

3.  Relationships

3.1  Family

  • Parents: Ena Uwatie and Artahkunistisky ("Wickett")
  • Siblings: Tsu-la ("Kingfisher") and Oo-kum-mah ("Badger")

3.2  Key Relations

  • Achak Aatu: leader of the Great Tribe - highly respected and somewhat feared.
  • Lagundo Wematin Amara: best friend, friend from childhood, closest confidante

4.  Interaction

  • Speech: What does your character sound like?
  • Scent: the faint scent of alcohol, though, he never seems drunk

4.1  NPCs

U-s-di-ge-yv-qua ("Branch")

  • Species: Thirteen-Lined Ground Squirrel
  • Sex: Female
  • DOB: 21 April 2012
  • Description: U-s-di-ge-yv-qua is a ground squirrel named for her tendency to chase after trees as a child.
  • Personality: U-s-di-ge-yv-qua is generally an imploring and chattering squirrel who enjoys pestering Joy, but very, very gently.

4.2  Abilities

Strengths

  • Healing (Journeyman)
    • Herbal medicine (Journeyman): Joy is well-versed in the uses of many plants for medicinal purposes. When it comes to the uses of plants and remembering herbal properties, she has an exceptional memory.
  • Cherokee customs (Journeyman): Joy has performed many birthing ceremonies under the guidance of the Ookah and has also carried out a few on her own. In addition, she is familiar with many of the Cherokee customs and is learning more about minor blessings. Like all members of the tribe, she completes a hunting ritual after a kill.
  • Selfless: Joy helps for the sake of it and doesn't mind going out of her way to help a friend. For this reason, she is also quite loyal.
  • Kinesthetic learner: Joy learns best when she sees something demonstrated and has the opportunity to practice on her own. As a result, when she learns things by doing, she can have a very good memory for things and can recall information she learned years ago without much difficulty.

Weaknesses

  • Traveling: Joy gets a little anxious when traveling and prefers to travel with a companion rather than alone. She is generally quite homebound and does not tend to venture too far outside of the Great Tribe, but wishes to change this.
  • Sense of pride: Joy is fiercely prideful and this is often problematic, as she is often obstinate and difficult to reason with. She is not a very good team player, either, preferring for things to either work in her favour or strike out on her own.
  • Know-it-all: Joy usually knows what is best -- for everyone. Always. She can accept dissent, but she has a very good memory and will never forget.
  • Holds grudges: If you cross Joy, she probably won't forget it. She can stew over something for a pretty long time. Luckily, she is also quite passive aggressive, so if she is upset with someone, they might not even know -- or at least know why.
