Khael Mwinyi Lykoi is the daughter of Machidael Lykoi and Mirutes Mwinyi, born in Blackmoor Castle with Sepirah Lykoi as her mother.

Raised with the expectation that she would take on "womanly duties" as she grew, she instead fought to be seen as equal to her brothers, bullying and manipulating her way into their lessons. Following Anathema's occupation of the castle in late 2014, the family was forced to move -- and journeyed to Egypt, the fathers' homeland. Here Khael continued to learn and grow stronger, craftier.

She returned to North America a little over a year later, and trespassed on Salsola territory during a robbery gone wrong. However, she was found by Katinka Holt -- who believed Khael to be a victim of Boreas -- and permitted to stay with the pack as an Associate. Khael remained largely uninvolved in Salsola's community and politics, forging a bond only with Tink, whom she became increasingly protective and possessive of as they grew closer. It wasn't until the Inferni-Salsola War that Khael, now a member of the Family proper, acted on her pack's behalf. Khael preyed upon multiple Infernians over the course of the war -- only some of these in proper defense of her home, and others victim of unfortunate circumstance.

The long and deliberate courtship of Tink culminated in marriage in March 2018, elevating the couple to the rank of Warden. For over a year, the couple remained stationary in the hierarchy, unwilling to play the pack's political games and cautiously finding footing under new leadership. However, the arrival of Khael's brother and rival, Ossidael, lit an ambitious fire in Khael. Training with others of the Shield and showcasing her vicious fighting style in defense of the pack, she earned the Milite job, and she and Katinka discussed their next step as a couple: children. After traveling to Portland so that Tink's older brother could sire the litter, Khael carried her pregnancy in secret -- one discovered by an experienced Salsolan, who blackmailed Khael with knowledge of her dealings with indentured servant Odalis. As a result, the Henchman was usurped only a week before the birth of her daughters: Keturah and Kineret.

PLOT OPPORTUNITY!

OOC ASSUMPTIONS!

  • Need an amoral villain for a plot? Khael has no qualms with hurting innocent people -- especially if she perceives a threat to Tink.

Salsola members may assume and reference the following without discussion/asking:

  • General conversations (e.g., greetings, chats about interests), though Khael is not very talkative and reveals little about herself.
  • Seeing Khael around Salsola: hunting, combat training alone, lurking and stalking, or hanging out with Katinka.

1.  Appearance

1.1  Basics

Essentials

  • Species: As her wolf and dog heritage is distant, Khael seems primarily a blend of coyote and jackal.
  • Fur: Thin in all seasons, and ill-suited to cold. Sleek and silky.
    • Optime Hair: Sliced very short and kept ragged and shaggy.
  • Facial Features: Sharp, angular jackal's face blended with coyote and wolf features. Her ears are far more coyote than jackal, and her muzzle is too thick and long for a jackal.
  • Build and Size: Though the only girl of her litter, Khael is the largest, strongest, and most physically intimidating -- among her siblings, anyway. Otherwise, she is generally still dwarfed by other canines, especially wolves. Well-muscled and more thickly built than her brothers, Khael is anything but willowy and weak.
  • Humanization: Medium-high -- wears clothes as necessity and to demonstrate wealth, and acts quite civilized, but has an undercurrent of feral/predatory nature.

Interaction

  • Speech: Fluent Arabic, moderately accented English. Mid-tone, very smooth voice; not generally emotive.
  • Scent: Salsola, jackal, meat, water, Tink. Likely exotic to many canines unfamiliar with jackals.
    • Scent diguised with sweet, spicy smells like bayberry and marigold.
  • Quirks, Gestures, Etc.: She does not emote strongly. When she does smile, the expression is uncanny, synthetic.
  • General Posture and Body Language: Dominant posture and body language befitting a goddess -- this is most natural. She will bow and act submissively around those who expect it of her or as an act.

2.  Personality

Dark Action Girl, Emotionless Girl, Beware the Quiet Ones, Faux Affably Evil, Rationalizing the Overkill

  • Difficult to read, Khael does not emote strongly and projects composure at most times.
  • Sharply intelligent, adept at reading body language. However, she rarely has empathy for others even if she understands, at a basic level, their emotions and motivations.
  • Often insensitive to others, either because she does not care -- direct honesty is her policy -- or because she still isn't quite "in tune" with others.
  • Extremely violent when provoked -- and sometimes needs no provocation. Khael is not Ax-Crazy, though she'd fool most people. No -- she is sane and knows what she's doing, thanks.
  • Ambitious, largely driven by proving her strength.
  • Very possessive of those she likes.

Spirituality

As with her fathers, Khael is believed to be the personification of a deity. Specifically, she is Sekhmet, "the warrior goddess as well as goddess of healing for Upper Egypt. She is depicted as a lioness, the fiercest hunter known to the Egyptians. It was said that her breath formed the desert. She was seen as the protector of the pharaohs and led them in warfare."

Fears

  • Snakes -- though she's grown up around cobras, she quietly fears them.

Biases

  • Species: Strongly pro-jackal. She is not biased against other species to any particular degree -- just knows jackals are better.
  • Gender: Feminist in powerful contrast to the rest of her family. All sexes are equal.

Sexuality

  • Bisexual, aromantic
  • Prefers to be the more dominant/stronger one in a relationship/encounter -- often to the point of manipulation/abuse.
  • Would choose a mate who fits her values of strength and loyalty; less picky with other encounters.
  • Khael will not feel romantic love, though she is perfectly capable of familial love and would cherish any children produced through a union with her mate.

Substances & Vices

Khael partakes in no substances, but often procures substances for others.

Interests

  • Likes: Feminism, surprising/manipulating people, lions, felines, heat
  • Dislikes: Misogyny, snakes, impulsiveness, cold

Born in 2014 to Sepirah Lykoi, with Mirutes Mwinyi and Machidael Lykoi as her fathers. Her fathers believe their sharing of Sepirah's womb in child-making is the same as if they made children together with one another; due to their beliefs regarding their godhood, they believe Khael is their daughter together. Sepirah may have contributed her genetic material but Khael is cherished by both of her fathers.

However, she is treated differently than her brothers -- due to being a woman. She is expected to learn wifely duties from Sepirah, but frequently bullies her way into other lessons, from a young age attempting to manipulate her fathers into teaching her. She is small and weak as a child, but grows larger and most physically intimidating of her siblings.
