1.  Appearance

1.1  Essentials

Basics

Lynx’s most notable characteristic is the stump of a tail on her rear end. She was born with it, and otherwise healthy, and so the abnormality doesn’t ever interfere with her day-to-day life. She looks mostly wolfish, other than her coat not being as thick as a pureblooded wolf’s- but it offers enough protection from cold and rain nonetheless. Her Secui form elongates her limbs and adds a thicker mane traveling down her spine and feathering on most of her joints.

Rarely, if ever, would Lynx be seen in her Optime form. If she were to don it more often her figure would be rather angular underneath her fur, but with little defined curves, giving her an almost androgynous appearance. Her mane would lengthen from her forehead down to the small of her back, untamed and entirely natural.

Interaction

  • Speech: Lynx’s tone is often choppy and direct, lending from her limited vocabulary and general “uncouth” nature when it comes to formal social gatherings. It lowers and mellows our when speaking to authority or to a trusted friend or family.
  • Scent: Dirt (lots of dirt), pine, wildflowers, wood, a hint of lavender.
  • Quirks, Gestures, Etc.: Very expressive with her ears and body to make up for her missing tail.
  • General Posture and Body Language: Lynx generally holds herself neutrally, if a bit on the dominant side.

2.  Personality

THE GOOD: Diligent, Self-Assured, Loyal, Patient, Conflict-Avoidant

What Lynx plans, she will do. Where she plants her feet, she will stay. And when she steps out, she will go. Lynx sets her mind in stone when it comes to completing an objective or pursuing a goal. She walks the path of life with a steady gait, something her mother had taught her from a young age. Largely undaunted in her pursuits, Lynx is not one to easily fall into insecurity, although she is humble enough to admit imperfections and work on improvement. Lynx can lie in wait for hours on end while hunting, and likewise has no problems with waiting things out for the long haul for her goals to come to fruition. Although she doesn't always show it outwardly, Lynx is loyal to those who are in turn loyal to her, and generally speaking she is likely to treat those that have found favor in her mind with more kindness and respect than otherwise. Lynx is unwilling to betray or turn against this to whom she is loyal, except when it comes to her own survival and morals. Due to her survivalist nature and upbringing, Lynx would be unwilling to actively start or become engaged in conflict, seeing it as wasting precious energy, even if her beliefs don't line up perfectly with another's. She'd simply choose to live and let live.

THE BAD: Prejudiced, Stubborn, Distrusting, Antisocial, Private, Self-Centered

Lynx holds her own beliefs close to her chest, and once she's made up her mind about a certain topic, situation, or person, it is very difficult to sway her opinion in any other direction. This stems largely from stubbornness, as Lynx would likely remain adamant in her own morals rather than change them to fit the society and culture around her. She is slow to trust others not in a visible role of leadership, and keeps most everyone at arm's length. She is mentally exhausted by prolonged and/or busied social environments, and oftentimes will seek out time to be alone and recharge. She is not one to divulge personal information easily beyond basics or what she believes is largely unimportant. Lynx's nature can also be considered selfish in that she often primarily looks out for her own safety and well-being with little regard to those around her.

2.1  Traits

Expression

  • Outlook: Realistic
  • Sociability: Introverted but dominant
  • Expression: resting bitch face Neutral
  • Alignment: True Neutral
    • "Will provide for friends, and expects to be repaid in some manner."
    • "Has few close friends and would never betray those she has, unless circumstances are dire."
    • "Will not harm others for profit."
  • Tropes:

Motivations

  • Survival, sticking to her beliefs, finding somewhere that truly accepts her

Fears

  • Death, being forced into Optime form against her will, hopelessness

Interests

  • Likes: Hunting, tracking, being in nature, being alone, Lupus and Secui forms
  • Dislikes: Humanized Luperci, Optime form in general, social situations, conflict

Biases

  • Packs: None
  • Species: Lynx was told that coyotes have silver tongues and can skin the pelt right off your back if you're not paying attention. It was really just an old outdated merchant's saying, but the imagery stuck nonetheless and she is inherently more guarded with coyotes.
  • Non-Luperci: Favorable towards non-Luperci and feral Luperci. The more humanized someone is, the less Lynx tends to respect them on principle.
  • Gender: Men are more prone to violence and aggression than women, in general at least.
  • Color: None
  • Sexuality: Hasn't really been exposed to anything other than heterosexuality, and would initially be confused about the concept of love without the ability to have pups, but could open up to it more over time.
  • Age: Elders have wisdom to share and we should all listen to them (overlaps with above mentioned biases, however).

Sexuality

Kinsey Scale 1: "Predominantly heterosexual, only incidentally homosexual." Lynx hasn't had much contact with anyone besides family, and even less so with anyone she could consider a romantic and/or sexual partner. With that said, she does secretly yearn for a close connection like a relationship to another, but she reminds herself no one would really want to be in a relationship with a feral mongrel like her, and she puts the notion away again.

  • Lynx has a rather bleak outlook on love and courtship and romance, but this wouldn't stop her from developing feelings for another. In that case, Lynx would most likely become rather awkward, obnoxious, defensive, and in denial towards them.

Spirituality

Lynx doesn't explicitly believe in a god or pantheon or follow any overt faith, but she does believe in some kind of higher power, but she couldn't tell you any specifics. She also learned from her mother the "natural way," a similar outlook to social Darwinism, or "survival of the fittest," but personally believes nature to simply be a never-ending cycle of birth, life, death, decay, and rebirth.

Substances

Doesn't understand why anyone would actually want to intoxicate themselves or smoke anything.

2.2  Skills

Strengths

Dabbler < Apprentice < Journeyman < Experienced < Accomplished < Master

  • Tracking (Journeyman): Lynx's nose is especially sensitive and can track scent trails incredibly well, but has only had perhaps a level above basic training in identifying tracks and clues when on a hunt.
  • Hunting (Journeyman): Lynx can hunt well enough to sustain herself and then some, although large and able-bodied prey are still out of her range.
  • Tooth and Claw Combat (Apprentice): Lynx has had her fair share of fights and scuffles, but they've mostly been against tough prey animals and not trained combatants, and Lynx has had little formal training in this area.
  • Number Sense (Dabbler): Largely unbeknownst to her, Lynx can be quite skilled with numbers, as keeping track of stores and wares, cataloguing, and dividing up portions comes naturally to her.

Weaknesses

  • Shifting: Lynx is adamant against shifting into her Optime form, which can prove to be a challenge that other more humanized Luperci don't have.
  • Weaponry and Armor: As Lynx is only barely trained in feral combat, an enemy wearing thick armor and wielding weapons would be a very tough challenge for her.
  • Literacy: Despite her talent with numbers, Lynx has never been taught how to read or write.

3.  Connections

3.1  Family

  • Mother: Thrush
  • Father: Thornclaw
  • Littermates: None
  • Half-siblings: Unknown

3.2  Relationships

Key Relationships

  • Thrush: Her mother and the foundation of everything Lynx holds dear to her heart even in the present day. The two of them traveled together for months, with Thrush teaching Lynx everything she knows about hunting and living off the wilds. Once she was of age, the two of them parted ways on good terms, and Lynx hopes that one day she can reunite with her mother again.

Positive Relationships

  • Characters made a big happy impact because reasons
  • Characters is also worth knowing and here's why you should know lalala

Poor Relationships

  • Thornclaw: Her father and the reason for her prejudice against two-legged Luperci. Even before Lynx was born and her mother was turned, Thornclaw took it upon himself to educate both her and their child in the ways of "civilized" living, whether they wanted him to or not. Lynx resents her father for the scars he gave Thrush and the psychological pain he tried to inflict on the two feral Luperci. She has an underlying hatred towards merchant type-folks because of him.
