1.  Appearance

1.1  Basics

Essentials

  • General

Laura appears much larger than she is because of her fur, but she's certainly not delicate. She is big boned and well-muscled, even as she grows a little more wiry as each year passes. Her fur is long but not especially thick and she's not double-coated, so it doesn't serve her well in cold climates. Her features are like rounded squares, and she is as long as she is tall. Her most common expression is disapproving, and she carries herself stiffly and proudly in all forms. When she moves it's with a high-stepped gait, though during the winter she moves as little as possible, to keep her limbs close to her body. In Optime she wears little, except when it is a necessity to wear a heavy cloak during the winter. Her wavy, wiry hair is kept short and is usually put in a ponytail, which is possibly the most human thing she does with herself.

3.  Personality


by Raze

Angst Dissonance, The Anti-Nihilist, The Ditherer, The Tramp, Big Brother Instinct

To explore in roleplay.

3.1  Demeanor

  • Direct - Saut doesn't sugarcoat, and hates beating around a bush. For this reason his words may easily be mistaken as rude, but he usually means well by them. He may not always realize that what he's saying is impolite.
  • Argumentative – Saut likes to be right. He doesn't like being told he's wrong.
  • Melancholy
  • Austere:

3.2  Ideals

Interests

  • Obsessions: -
  • Likes: Play, attention, physical contact (such as hugs, Saut likes hugs), herbal smells.
  • Dislikes: If you don't like your kids, Saut probably doesn't like you.

Traits

  • Outlook: Pessimist. Despite having a strong drive to try and make things turn out well, Saut has a low sense of self-worth and is very pessimistic when he thinks about the future.
  • Sociability: Saut is extremely socially awkward, but strongly desires the companionship of others.
  • Expression: Tends to be rather dominant and has a quick temper. Extrovert.
  • Alignment: True Neutral

Fears

  • Abandonment: Saut is terrified of being abandoned again. This is both a general fear of being abandoned, and a specific fear of those individuals with whom he's close leaving him.
  • Death: Kaena is old. He doesn't want to be left alone. Since Kaena's death, his fear of it has increased.

Motivations

  • Recognition: Now that Saut is putting more effort towards his participation in Inferni, he'll want others to notice. Like, everyone.
  • Inferni: As he matures, Saut will begin to feel indebted to the coyote clan which took him in. He'll want to do good by those who raised him, and prove himself more of a coyote than his looks would have others believe.
  • Order: Things must always be right.
  • Closeness: There are few people with whom Saut is close since Kaena's death. He's lonely.

Biases

  • Packs: Based on Inferni's pack biases.
  • Species: He's heard bad things about wolves, but hasn't really made his mind up on that. Since his mother was a wolf-dominant hybrid, he understands he's probably more wolf and dog than coyote, and can't bring himself to hate them.
  • Non-Luperci: None.
  • Gender: Was raised by a gaggle of females. Feels more at ease around them, but doesn't know how to act around those his own age. Full-grown males are a bit intimidating to him.
  • Color: None.
  • Sexuality: Through witnessing the relationship between Myrika and Vesper while young, Saut doesn't see same-sex relationships as particularly unusual.
  • Age: Saut likes the elderly. He tends to be calmer around them and loves listening to stories or helping them out.
  • Wimps: Saut has a somewhat self-directed dislike for those who complain and whine about their lot in life. As said, this dislike is often directed back at himself during his more upset periods.
  • Parenthood: He has an instant hate for neglectful, abusive, or absent parents; it is an irredeemable flaw in his eyes, unless the parents in question actually change their behavior. His view on his own parents is somewhat more complicated.

Sexuality

  • Bisexual
  • Saut has yet to realize his liking of both genders, but he will be most attracted to strong, intelligent females and non-domineering and non-intimidating males.
  • He'll want to be close with someone before engaging with them sexually, but he'll not be opposed to "platonic sex." When he's older, however, he'll look for something beyond platonic before sex.

Substances

  • Drinks when he's bored. Drinks more when he's hungover.
  • Doesn't drink often, but when he does, it's a lot.

Spirituality

  • Yzz will write this up later, when she's not being lazy.

3.3  Abilities

Strengths

  • Languages (Journeyman): Laura seems to be gifted, when it comes to learning new languages. She is fairly proficient in English after only a few months of contact with it.
  • Lupus Hunting (Master): She's provided for her family since she was very young. Since she is small, she is largely unable to hunt large prey; however, small animals fall easily to her teeth.
  • Motherhood (Journeyman): Laura has raised seven children. All but one went off to start their own, respectable families. She loves children, but is harsh.

Weaknesses

  • Winter: blah
  • Something: blah

4.  Relationships

4.1  Key Relations

  • Sira de la Fuente aka Boba: The disappointment. Deep down, Laura is happy that the girl is by her side instead of having gone off like her other children. Outwardly, though, she criticizes Sira's every move and nags her about everything.
  • Billy de la Fuente aka Cariño: Love love love. Grandson. Love him.

4.2  Family: de la Fuente

4.3  Other Relations

Pack Relations

  • Myrika Tears aka Aunt Myrika: His aunt. She helped raise him and spent the most amount of time with him (aside from Kaena) during his youngest months. Saut looks up to her and misses her sorely.
  • Vesper aka Aunt Ves: She was also around when Saut was young, and he feels closer to her now that he's older. She taught him to hunt and track - some of his favorite memories. He believes Inferni will be just fine under her leadership, and feels that he must prove himself to her.
  • Kallistos Moineau: They played together a few times when he was a puppy. Kallistos made fun of him a few times, so Saut isn't sure what to think about him as an adult.
  • Sinech Dalisani: Friend! They hang out!
  • Crucifix de le Poer: Quiet girl.
  • Jehan de l'Or: One of Inferni's Outsiders who Saut likes purely because he's doggish. He feels a little awkward about Jehan's missing arm, mostly because he's not sure how to talk about it respectfully (if at all).
  • Clover: Kinda rude, kinda cool girl.
  • Vicira Tears: A cousin who Saut envies and admires.
  • Bluethroat Versailles: A woman with a strange (but faintly familiar) accent who Saut finds himself opening up to occasionally, for some reason. She seems to know more about him than he does about her, which freaks him out a little.
  • Cartier Inferni: Taught him a little Low Speech. Dude, take a break!
  • Antioch de le Poer: A big, buff, handsome relative who intimidates Saut.
  • Basilio Lykoi:

Family Relations

  • Svasra: Sought her out in Salsola, when he was barely old enough to make the trip. He doesn't hate his mother, but he has few positive feelings towards her anymore, either. Mostly indifferent.
  • Gehenna Asylum: His father was around in the first day or so in Inferni, and that was it. Only saw him a few times during his childhood, but never approached because he was afraid of the man's reaction. His feelings towards Gehenna are complicated.
  • Wendigo Novosad: He was once quite jealous of her. Now he wonders what happened to her, but doesn't think much about her or their mother much anymore.

Minor Relations

Other Relations

  • Rimel Molle: His wet nurse. Saut barely remembers her, but he misses her presence.

4.4  Residence

  • Saut has taken out the door to the balcony and instead hanged a heavy pelt over the frame. Similar pelts cover the windows and are rarely removed. There's a mass of sleeping pelts piled in an inner corner. A rudimentary map of the territory's paths is etched into a side wall. The room is a constant work in progress, so Saut often leaves discarded pieces of furniture in the hallway for grabsies or to sit till they rot.
  • A Luperci-Made table (courtesy of Sinech Dalisani is pushed against the other wall, neatly displaying his few belongings. A rickety stool, too tall for the table, is pushed up next to it, and Saut drapes his scarf and jacket over it.

5.  History

Laura lived quite happily in Venezuela but then her daughter gave birth to a bunch of bastard children, boo. Somehow they came to be in Mexico where Laura and Sira were made Luperci so they'd better fit into some community. Sara had another bastard child (boo). Then they found themselves deep in debt and fled. Somehow they ended up in Nova Scotia, and Laura is grumpy. :I
