2.  Personality

Karria is used to being surrounded by nobles so much of her personality is shaped and catered around being a proper lady. As she is able to find her own way in life, free of the restrictions and rules she was raised into, she will eventually loosen up and becomes less of a hoity toity princess and a much more relaxed and fun loving lady. As of right now, she has a lot to learn about how "regular folk" live and that world does not revolve around her.

5.  History

  • Born into nobility in an area of the UK wilderness ruled by packs based off similar hierarchy as medieval feudal systems using old castles and abandoned villages and keeps as pack bases. Raised as a noblewoman and the pride and joy (akin to the "Princess") of the pack.
  • Spoiled with riches and custom, one of a kind possessions. Held to high expectations and discipline.
  • Educated from an early age, trained in skills of choice (she chose healing and archery) as well as diplomacy in hopes for her to one day rule and lead as Alphess. She excelled in archery. Was best in her pack, better than most males. She put her everything into this skill when the life of a noble became too stressful and stuffy.
  • On a diplomatic visit to a neighboring pack, she met and fell in love with a nobleman (the "Prince") of another pack whom also shared her views of feeling restricted by his pack's rules and they developed a forbidden romance even though Karria was promised to be mated to another noble from a 'friendlier' (red: richer) pack. The two met in secret for many months, nearly a year, in which time, Karria was taught Falconry by her lover and gifted her own bird, before being the two were discovered.
  • The two eloped one night after both sides' parents disapproved and forbid their mateship. Commanding one of his pack's ships to seek a life free of the rules and restrictions they'd grown up in the two sought to travel across seas to rumored free lands there. Each of them took one loyal servant along.
  • Eventually they reached 'Souls, a bit worse for wear but hopeful for a new life, seeking to join one of the packs here in the strange new lands. They quickly are drawn to CdC as it's similar to what they were raised into and is the first, closet pack to their landing site.
  • They offer their myriad of skills and the ship to CdC as gestures of peace and loyalty. Today they are settling in to pack life, building their new lives as members of CdC.

6.  The Traditional Featherwright Personal Achievement Feathers

As a sort of personal track-record or journal, Karria (both ICly and I, Westy as her player) tracks her personal achievements via a feather journalism system. She marks each occasion in a small leather bound journal that has her family's crest imprinted upon it and presses small, white and blue-dyed feathers into the pages, writing little notes and memoirs beneath them to commemorate the events of her life. It is an old tradition of her family heritage that has stuck with her, despite her rejecting her families' ways otherwise. Her collected achievements thus far can be found at the bottom of her forum profile and are marked by the image of this feather:
