June Belgrave is the middle daughter of three, born to infamous slave merchant and smuggler Solomon the Salamander. She was raised by her timid, foreign mother Joy, along with her two sisters Sari and Anja Belgrave.

Happily fulfilling the role of a model-daughter within the family's wealthy residence on Barbados, young June felt that her life was secure and had a plan; She was prepared for the predictably comfortable story that should befall her, becoming a seaman's wife and raising his children with docility and grace. Unlike her bossy older sister, who was determined to be like a son to Solomon, and her impetuous younger sister, who was always running off and getting into trouble, June was content to live within the restrictions of her old-fashioned domestic life.

However, after reading a note left to her by Sari detailing that she had run away for good this time, June's simple life was shattered. Desperate to find her sister before Anja (or heaven forbid their poor-tempered father) could find out about her antics, June made the difficult decision to leave all that she had known and step out into the world. With an immodest amount of wealth to her name, June hired a small vessel to take her to Freetown, where she finally found Sari - Who had cut off all her beautiful russet hair, and was grubby enough to be a ship's boy!

It was then that stubborn Sari persuaded (read: manipulated) a reluctant June to accompany her on their grand adventure. Afraid to return home to her father's dismay and anger, and perhaps secretly a little thrilled by her braveness thus far, June nervously agreed to go along with Sari - with the promise that if they ran into any trouble, they would both return to their birthrights in Barbados. Knowing that their father had trade connections with a pack, Salsola, the young ladies sought out a representative of the Thistle Kingdom.


Having managed to avoid the worst of Freetown's filth and scum, June was quick to jump on the opportunity of meeting Salsola's Lord Commander, Lokr Revlis, on one of his infrequent trips to Freetown. Upon learning of the two girls' unique and valuable heritage, Lokr readily agreed to escort them back to Salsola - Where June now resides as an Associate.

Forms

24 lbs (11 kg)
18 in (43 cm)

Lupus

Though she comes from a pool of mixed genetics, she takes after singing dog roots more heavily when in this form. Her size is considerably smaller than a wolf as well as weighting a lot less. She looks rather slender and sleek when in this form, however, she looks very fragile and more breakable than her optime form. Her fur resembles the look of a mitted Siamese cat, and if seen from far away could be thought to maybe be a large house cat.

Secui

It is very rare to see June in this form to the point she has forgotten what it looks like. She looks more like a wold in this form though she still looks frail and delicate, and for combat she would surely fail. Longer legs prove for faster speeds and a wider chest for better stamina. The only way to truly tell that this form is her Secui form is the deep chocolate hair that lengthens and pools down her nap and spine.

Optime (Preferred)

Due to the nature of her upbringing, June was taught that optime form was the most lady-like and civil of forms. Therefore she is most commonly in this form and it the most comfortable in it. June is very delicate, small lady. Taking after her mother in stature rather than her wolf blooded father. She is soft and curved in all the right places, this is accented with high quality and modest clothing. Her features are angled and sharp, to show off more of her wolf blood but her cheeks are slightly rounded due to her singing dog mother. Her hair is a deep chocolate color that if relaxed has a soft wave, though it is mostly worn in a long braid.

Biases

  • Packs: Pro-Salsola, due to the trading her father did with them. June thinks highly of Salsola.
  • Non-Luperci: Doesn't understand why they would not like the option of other forms but does not look down on them for their choice.

Sexuality

  • Heterosexual
  • June is not strictly heterosexual though it is all she that she has been taught to be, it is unknown if she will be attracted to the same sex but it is unlikely.
  • She is fairly obvious about others attraction to her -- instead she will misconstrue soft touches, complementry words, as someone trying to be nice or proper.
  • She will act embarrassed by her own attractions and will often try to hide this though she will ultimately fail due to her uncontrollable blushing.
  • June is not one to initiate a relationship -- this is due to inexperience and not truly knowing how to start a relationship.

Substances

  • Has drank wine before but has only been exposed to it in limited amounts.
  • Has not partaken in substances, but is aware of smoked herbs, etc.

Spirituality

  • Polytheistic
  • June was exposed to many cultures and beliefs due to growing up with a father as a trader and living in a rather high trading city and therefore believes that there are many gods and spirits, though her mother and father did not raise her with these beliefs.

3.  Interaction

  • Speech: Well-educated and soft spoken. June has no true accent, as she grew up in an ocean port that saw many foreigners passing through. Because of this, she is multi-lingual, and can easily speak French, Spanish, and the Islander Bajan-Creole of Barbados.
  • Scent: Seasalt and pine, Sari
  • Quirks: June enjoys excessively modest but high-quality clothing. She has a beautiful singing voice, which she inherited from her mother, but is usually too demure to use it. She wouldn't know how to wield a weapon if her life depended on it.

4.  Relationships

4.1  Key Relations

  • Anja Belgrave - Although better able to tolerate their bossy older sister than Sari, June still struggles with Anja's overbearing, domineering nature. She doesn't understand why it is so important to Anja to take on the responsibilities that a son of Solomon would have - And naturally feels that Anja looks down on her timid, old-fashioned femininity.
  • Sari Belgrave - Being the more easygoing and light-hearted sister, Sari was a closer confidant to June. June taught Sari many things, such as to cook and sew, and often acted almost as a second mother to her. However, Sari was always uncomfortable with how content June remained in their mother's house and is easily frustrated by her meek nature, and June struggles to understand her sister's boredom and claustrophobia within the confines of their small lives.
