Kali de le Poer is the first-born daughter of Kastra Hunting and Ezekiel de le Poer; sister to Marlowe and Agrippa. She is a coyote-dominant hybrid born somewhere within the Riding Mountain area, who spent the entirety of her childhood consistently on the move. However despite caution, her father's past involvement in the Boreas Conflict caught up to the family and forced them to separate. Kali, her mother, and siblings, traveled south to Scintilla.

Though proving herself to be an extremely adept fighter and Soldier, Kali was singled out in the ranks because of her doggish appearance, and was the source of many altercations. After enduring several months of chronic abuse and general discontentment, she and her siblings went AWOL and fled north in search of Nova Scotia and their father's famed former pack, Inferni.

Of note during their journey, she killed a slaver and wound up in possession of a dog she named Rook, who could not be deterred from following the three of them across Nova Scotia. Eventually, they found the coyote-based clan and observed them for several weeks before joining in the late spring of 2014.

Kali served as the clan's Sagitarium (Horse Warrior) and Vaquera that year, living in high contentment with her siblings until she fell in love with Lokr Revlis, a Salsolan protégé and the son of her father's lover. She was driven to a psychotic break when his attention for her waned, spending the entire summer of 2015 seducing and killing any green-eyed man she came across. Murdering the son of Mudboy -- king in an underground ring of rogues and bandits -- warranted her capture. She and Rook were violated and tortured for an extended period before escaping with the help of former servants, Nadya and her mute brother, Tsuban.

Two months after exacting her revenge on Mudboy, she gave birth to his four sons: Malachi, Urijah, Jericho, and Barnabas de le Poer. Rook assumed the role of surrogate father for the boys, and eventually Kali married him for it.

1.  Appearance

1.1  Basics

Essentials

  • Species: Curiously, Kali has genetically picked up on the thinner wolf and domestic blood of her ancestry and looks decidedly "dog-like", much like her grandfather, albeit of a vastly different coat pattern and build.
  • Fur: While her fur is predominantly sleek and flat across the entirety of her body, she has a particularly tall ruff just before her spine and lengthy feathering along the bottom of her tail. Her personal coat is not particularly well-suited for Nova Scotia's winters.
    • Optime Hair: Her hair falls in full waves down to the middle of her back if it isn't tied up in a high ponytail, braided on either side, or wrapped into a bun. With bangs that easily reach beneath her eyes, her hair is satiny and flat for the most part, curling only slightly at its ends.
  • Facial Features: Coyote features blatantly here through her tall, pointed ears, and long, thin muzzle that is a tad boxier than the norm due to her mixed heritage.
  • Build and Size: She has grown to be taller than both her littermates, with well toned muscle that provides a slight bulk to her otherwise sharp, lean figure.
    • Lupus: Long-legged and narrow, Kali has the sharp lines of a coyote but the larger physique and boxier head of a wolf/dog.
    • Optime: Kali's height only accentuates her figure, which is hourglass in shape. She has well-toned arms and thick, weight-bearing thighs.
  • Humanization: Mostly uses only practical human items, but her secret penchant for "dressing up" is evident in the near-constant presence of accessories.

Coloration

  • Fur: Primarily Diesel on her face, neck, back, sides, and the top of her tail, with Rope coloring her sternum, arms/legs, and just beneath her ears, also fringing the sides of her neck.
  • Markings: Muesli pales her throat, undersides, and a small corner on each cheek, which both wield a small Black beauty mark.
    • This lightens to Yuma during winter.
  • Eyes: Vermillion
  • Optime Hair: Shiny Diesel
    • Nose and Paw Pads: Black

1.2  Miscellaneous

Modifications

  • Tattoos: N/A
  • Scars:
    • An irregular, oval-shaped scar on the outer edge of her left hand (damaging the top and palm); received from the jaws of a fox.
    • A small slash between the upper ribs on her left side, just behind her breast (only visible in Optime).
    • A thin, foot-long scar across the top of her left shoulder, extending towards her back from her collarbone.
  • Piercings: Both ears are pierced, twice on the outer base of each ear (gold studs) and once near the top of her right ear (small gold hoop).

Adornments

Kali is nearly always wearing jewelry. She will only regularly wear clothes during the winter months, but privately enjoys wearing non-practical clothing just for show.

Jewelry and Accessories

Clothing

  • Often wears a leather-made utility belt, clipped with a dagger or axe at all times; occasionally hosts her whip.
  • An elk-skin cape, made by Euphoria Tenebrae.
  • Owns a floor-length, leather tanned, ox-skin cloak. Reserved for winter.

Forms

Lupus

60 pounds (27.2 kg) · 26 in (65 cm)
Though slightly larger than an average coyote, with her tall ears and slim profile, Kali resembles one entirely.

Secui

148 pounds (67 kg) · 37 in (93.9 cm)
Muscular despite her height, this form is most commonly used for combat.

Optime (Preferred)

171 pounds (77.5 kg) · 5 ft 10 in (177.8 cm) Kali looks athletic, sometimes feminine, and almost always dangerous. Her long, dark hair does not distract the eye from this fact.

1.3  Interaction

  • Speech: Kali has a noticeable Southern accent, and often uses phrases and exclamations picked up in Scintilla (ie; "Jesus", "The Spirit", militaristic terms). She speaks very deliberately and in such a way that it can be more appropriately described as "consistently bored". Her voice resembles Kristin Bauer van Straten as Pam De Beaufort.
  • Scent: Mostly she smells of Inferni, and also of Rook. If one manages to get close enough, they can detect particular spices like pine and honey mingled in her pelt.
  • General Posture and Body Language: Erect, incredibly self-assured, and yet without rigidity.
  • Quirks, Gestures, Etc.:
    • Usually walks with her chest out and shoulders back; tends to clasp her arms behind her back like a military General.
    • She craves bear meat, and considers bear cubs a delicacy.
    • Perpetually suffers from bitchy resting-face.
    • She does not like frivolous touching. She is also ticklish... but I wouldn't.
    • Kali tends to side-eye a lot, more simply because she never looks in one spot for long, but also because she's a bitch.

2.  Personality

Ice Queen · Military Maverick · Glory Seeker · Noble Demon · The Snark Knight · The Baroness

Beneath a cool veneer of pride, sarcasm, and collected cynicism, there is a feral typhoon of capriciousness and raw emotion. Like the goddess whose name she shares, Kali is fiery and severely ferocious, unfortunately coupling the inheritance of her father's temper. More often than not she appears entirely inexpressive, apathetic even, but this is a defense mechanism if nothing else.

She is deliberate in all action, straight-forward when talking, and aggressively vindictive when wronged. She is also very much her mother's daughter, making her remarkably self-sufficient, and independent to the point of refusing help unless absolutely necessary. Kali is private and enjoys her own company more than most others' but any anti-social behavior stems from unconsciously shielding herself from harm. A secretly opposing force to her thrill-seeking and adrenaline-junky tendencies.

Kali will confidently accept challenges with little to no mental pretense for failure. And she does not merely represent confidence, but it seems to radiate from her in some fashion, even when she isn't do anything at all. Her eyes, always hold the intensity of her emotions.

2.1  Ideals

Traits

Stern, fearless, unkind, ruthless, firm, intelligent, fierce, unpredictable, and devoted

  • Attitude: Realist; Ego-defensive
  • Sociability: Dominant and standoffish towards strangers; she does not "chat" and finds it difficult to get along with those who take her steely resolve and snarky quips as personal. She tends to antagonize others, friends or not.
  • Expression: Cool, stony, and impassive for the most part.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral

Motivations

  • Being superior—she secretly wants to be "top dog".
  • Protecting her family.
  • Amassing a great amount of respect (since receiving none in Scintilla).
  • To a lesser degree, she would also like to find her father.

Fears

Losing loved ones, physical disability, enslavement, needing help—general vulnerability in any way

  • Fear is considered to be a weakness to Kali and she won't show it in company.

Spirituality

Not nearly as religious as her siblings, Kali believes in God and follows Scintilla’s version of Pentecostalism. She was also exposed to Midewiwin and Egyptian mythology. Due to time spent with Sirius, she would also have a loose understanding of Atotoztli and the Norse-based faith practiced in Salsola.

Biases

  • Species: Indifferent towards all species except cats, birds and foxes; loves the former while hating the latter two.
  • Gender: Values most females, while only strong, capable males tend to hold her attention.
  • Non-Luperci: Her only opinion of non-shifters is that they're more easily killed.
  • Hybrids: Being a mutt herself, Kali is incredibly partial towards those of mixed-blood and will be more open/accepting towards hybrids.
  • Character: She does not easily tolerate foolish, shy, or needlessly vile individuals.
  • Age: Automatically respectful towards elders; incredibly self-conscious, and easily irritated around kids.

Sexuality

  • Kinsey 2: "Predominantly heterosexual, but more than incidentally homosexual"
    • prefers masculine males and feminine females.
  • While extremely prone to dominant behavior in an intimate relationship, she privately craves to be dominated.
  • She has an enormous sexual appetite that is largely suppressed at all times and rarely exhibited, due to her rather militaristic upbringing.
  • Ultimately seeks a relationship where tender and rough is equally appreciated.

Interests

  • Likes: Her siblings, Inferni, Lokr, exercising, quietness, reading (in secret), playing dress-up, fighting, hunting, sex, and adrenaline
  • Dislikes: Chit-chat, stupidity, foxes, sleeping, birds, being wet, and strangers

Substances

Inexperienced, albeit well-read on a plethora of hallucinogenic plants and toxins

  • Drinks alcohol, but has never been more than tipsy.
  • Doesn't like the distortion of her senses, so any intoxicants are hardly ever used.
  • Likely to offer substances to others so that she may be temporarily amused.

3.  Relationships

* Does not know this person by name.

3.1  Family: de le Poer

3.2  Relations

Key Relations

  • Marlowe and Kali share a strange, brutal bond, that is just as loving as it is violent. She is possessive of her brother and feels like she is the only one that should be able to hurt him. I DID SAY STRANGE RIGHT?
  • Agrippa is a guiding light in Kali's otherwise shadowy world. Her opinion is probably the only one that truly matters to Kali, and she would wrench the moon from the sky if it meant making her happy. Though sometimes jealous of Agrippa's capacity to care, she appreciates their differences and cherishes her sister's love.
  • Rook was unintentionally rescued by Kali and now she feels responsible for him. She seems not to care very much about him, but her actions would dictate otherwise.
  • Lokr Revlis, the son of her father's lover, met again in adulthood through surprisingly inadvertent seduction, is presently a carnal vice to Kali. Tantamount on her list of obsessions, she has shared herself with him on more than one occasion, which had not been previously observed in her behavior before.

Positive Relations

  • Ezekiel is her idol. She most likely harbored some inappropriate emotions towards him, and sought to achieve an impossible goal by pleasing him with her strength and prowess. She has suffered from small anxiety problems since separating from him.
  • Kastra remains a great influence on Kali's life. She regretted leaving her, and wears Kastra's ring to keep the memory of her constant.
  • Micah Sunrise Lykoi is exactly the type of individual that Kali would normally detest, and yet she spends an inexplicable amount of time in his company in an attempt to "toughen him up". His shortcomings irritate the living hell out of her, but there is something about Micah that she wishes to protect and also control.

Neutral / Negative

  • Um, everybody?
  • And then everybody else too.

Minor Relations

  • Enemies: THE WORLD
  • Murders: I'll probably need to link a MS Excel page here

4.  Skills and Inventory

4.1  Abilities

Combat

  • Analysis: Because of two very paranoid and protective parents, Kali was introduced to practiced fighting at the youngest possible age for it. She proved to be fast, vicious, resilient, and extremely adept when she could finally handle weapons. She spends most of her energy practicing and seems overeager to entertain a fight whenever one can arise. She is especially well-defended and has impeccably quick reflexes that she is very confident in.
  • Lupus & Secui (Master): Swift, barbaric, and unrelenting.
  • Weaponry (Master): Kali has a natural feel for weapons; she can pick up almost anything sharp and be instantly good at killing someone with it. She specializes in short-ranged weapons (ie; swords, axes, daggers, maces, etc.) but is sufficient hunting with a bow.
    • Talented with a stock- and bullwhip.
  • Brawling (Master)
  • She is tactful and fluid while fighting; confident, smart, and unrushed.
  • Her hand-eye coordination is superb, and her ability to "size up" an opponent and find weaknesses is brilliantly applied at all times.
  • Her endurance level and tolerance for pain are higher than average.

Language

  • Analysis: English is her main tongue and she prefers it that way. Though protecting herself and her family is prime, her parents also instilled in her a sense of education, so she was taught to read early on. Kali is too roguish to admit that she likes reading, but in private she will still often curl up with non-fiction fact books and educate herself regularly.
  • Reading (Master): Kali is an avid, fluent reader in English, Spanish, and Latin.
  • Writing (Journeyman): She can write, but does not enjoy it as much as reading.
  • She does not like fiction because she has no great imagination.
  • Her experience with books stems from her desire to know. She likes to know how to do things, where things are, how they worked, what existed, what plants can kill you, etc. Because of this, she knows a lot of useless things.

4.2  Inventory

Items

Animal Products

  • Generally: ~15 - 25 cured pelts; ~5 - 10 rawhide parchment sheets
  • One of her favorite items to craft are small leather bags
  • She has a large supply of stones suitable for scraping the fur and flesh from pelts in the curing process
  • She has neatsfoot oil, procured from the Winter Festival 2012.

Horse Tack

  • Horse food stores of various rotating stock, usually any of the following: a few dried apples, harvested oat, switchgrass, and bluejoint from Inferni's marshes
  • Various horse tack: bits, bridles, ropes, blankets, brushes, miscellaneous care items
  • A saddle similar to an Australian stock saddle, with long and dangly stirrups modified to accomodate Myrika's height. A second saddle is similarly modified, though less frequently used due to its more battered condition.

Miscellaneous

  • Pair of throwing axes obtained in the Boreas Conflict
  • Wooden staff given by Ithiel
  • Myrika has four books: two non-fiction about leather-working, a thick textbook on livestock, and a copy of The Stand, which she believes is a non-fiction record of the apocalypse, written by human survivors.
