Kalypso Savoy is the only daughter of Silvano Sadira and Mara Savoy, and is the result of a tumultuous, clandestine affair that came to a halt following the resolution of an intrapack war between Cour des Miracles and Inferni.

Unwittingly conceived in Cour des Miracles, she was born alongside her brother Leander Sadira in Freetown following his mother's departure, and the group — mother, lover, son, and daughter — were quick to make their way to Barbados and later the Virgin Islands when the pups were old enough to eat solid food. Much of the children's youth was spent traveling aboard ships, and Kalypso took to it like a fish to water. Interested in the running of a shipping line, Kalypso spent much of her time aboard them shadowing the captain, her mother.

Quick on the uptake, Kalypso is a vivacious young woman with all her mother's tenacity and the combined intelligence of her two parents. She is a people person, a people pleaser, and very capable of manipulating situations to her own needs. While her mother may have spied and used information to her advantage, Kalypso is better suited to cajoling people with sweet talk, flattery, and sometimes even bribery.

In the summer of 2017 she journeyed to Portland and met her father's group of travelers, informing him of her identity and borderline blackmailing him to take her with them. While her father's identity was not revealed at the time, Kalypso was welcomed as the daughter of the former Ambassador Spy.

4.1  Abilities

Survival

  • Fishing (Journeyman): Raised on a Caribbean island, there was no way to escape the need to learn to fish. A portion of her diet had been based on fish, so she enjoys the taste.
  • Swimming (Master): The islands taught her to swim well, and she enjoys it fully. Strong against the tides, she is less likely to be swept away than a Canadian canine unused to the sea.
  • Hunting (Novice): Perhaps not the best hunter, she can at least catch herself a decent meal now and then, though her skills at fishing at decidedly better.
  • Navigation (Journeyman): Trained by her mothers and other sailors, Kalypso is more than capable of navigating day or night, with an excellent memory and good attention to detail.
  • Ropemaking (Novice): Not the best at ropes, she is good enough at making a sturdy net for fishing that at least lasts a little while.
  • Plants (Novice): While she's skilled at recognizing quite a few things on the islands, she decidedly weaker in identifying plants local to Nova Scotia. She can at least knows how best to avoid poison ivy and poison oak.
  • Poisons (Apprentice): Kalypso learned the art of poison making from her mother and is capable of using the same seeds that she did to create her toxins.
  • Used to tropical forests and a bustling port, Kalypso may get turned around more easily in the wooded lands of Nova Scotia. The forests tend to look all the same to her and block her view of the sky, which is vital to her brand of navigation.
  • Her skills at hunting are limited, mostly due to the lack of large land prey on the islands. Her preference for fish is greater, but the lack of variety makes fishing a little less appealing.
  • Time limited her learning in poisons and she may now and again fail to make a decent poison. She does not prefer to use poisons but she is not morally above using them.

Combat

  • Lupus (Apprentice): A sizeable creature in lupus, she still is not the best at fighting in it. Infrequent
  • Optime (Journeyman): All of her combat education focused on Optime methods of fighting, so she is decidedly more skilled at them than anything else. Her youth and inexperience are the only things that have kept her skills back.
    • Hand-to-Hand (Journeyman): From Mara she learned beautiful hand to hand, and her size gave her the strength to truly make it a potentially lethal combination.
    • Sabre (Apprentice): A local sailor taught her to use a sword; she loved the lethal nature of it as well as the grace it could bestow, but the man left port before he could keep teaching her.
    • Knives (Apprentice): Any girl raised in a port should be taught to use a knife as bar fights involved them more than once in a while.
  • Archery (Novice): Agrippa taught her how to use a bow, so in a pinch, she could utilize it, but it is not her preferred method of hunting or fighting.
  • Infrequent fighting in the lupus form leaves her relatively unskilled though she is capable of holding her own for long enough. Rarely in the form so she rarely bothers to practice.
  • Grace and elegance define the way that Kalypso fights in her Optime. She is all about presentation and that may sometimes be a hindrance. Hand to hand leaves her constantly armed and ready to defend herself, though she would really prefer to avoid fighting.
  • Her saber skills are lacking as she does not practice too often and her education in it was too brief to bring her too high in skill.

Socio-Political

  • Diplomacy (Journeyman): Raised at the knee of an Ambassador and Spy, Kalypso picked up quite a bit. She's relatively good at it, though her inexperience keeps her back.
  • Reading (Master): Mother dearest taught her how to read, though she does not actively seek to read; she does view it as a good source of information on occasion.
  • Manipulation (Apprentice): Her skills are developing and she has no qualms about using people to further her own agenda. She was used once or twice, and so she has no guilt.
  • Spanish (Apprentice): Mostly curses and slang, she learned it from travelers to the island and natives that spoke it. She's not bad at it and can get her point across very well.
  • French/Creole (Apprentice): Due to her growing up on the islands, she learned quite a bit of French and Creole.
  • Italian (Dabbler): Her Italian is quite weak, but she picked it up very slowly.
  • Her patience tends to be thin for diplomatic things, especially when dealing with fools.
  • Her language skills could use some practice, but at least she could survive in those lands easily.
  • She is likely more proficient in the French than Spanish.
