1.  Personality

  • Crass: Her primary weapon is sarcastic humor. Maddox has no inhibitions against telling dirty jokes, either -- her manners in general are lacking, making her sometimes loud and inappropriate, to the irritation of those around her. The only time she seems to stop is when engrossed in construction or cooking.
  • Friendly: Although somewhat blunt in her delivery and seemingly lacking in sympathy, Maddox is truly a friendly and warm-hearted soul. She thrives on companionship and company and has devoted herself to Inferni and its members early on. Though one's first impression of her may give assumptions of laziness or even outright rudeness, her dutifulness in attending to her tasks and her packmembers primarily stems from this trait.
  • Somewhat cowardly: Although Maddox hates wolves, she's not the type to go fighting them. She'd much rather simply avoid them, and would need to be cajoled into actually fighting for Inferni. Nevertheless, she's not so cowardly as to run away entirely.

1.1  Skills

  • Skilled mason and carpenter -- namely gifted at repairs and maintenance, Maddox is also able to construct simple, rough structures from the ground at a basic level. Her construction is simplistic and lacking in ornamentation or adornment, but quite functional. Her craftsmanship extends to smaller projects, but she doesn't "waste time making bullshit and chairs" (as she puts it) without complaining loudly.
  • Cooking is her personal passion and hobby; Maddox is always trying out some new combination of ingredients. It's commonplace for Maddox to deliver random gifts of some new concoction -- usually delicious, but with the rare misfire, too -- to an Infernian's residence. One of her best "dishes" isn't food at all, though -- it's moonshine, often flavored with many different things, which she readily shares.
  • Horse care is something she picked up on her journey north with the caravan -- her primary duties included caring for the teams of horses. She therefore learned feeding, basic grooming (brushing and hoof-cleaning), etc. She does not enjoy working with horses, however, and though attentive, will verbally insult any horse she's given care of.

2.  Appearance

Purely coyote and of one of the smallest subspecies, Maddox is small of stature and seems, at first glance, almost petite -- owing to her small size, no doubt. It would be, however, entirely accurate to describe her as a compact brick consisting primarily of muscle. Her upper body is especially strong, owing to her long years of work.

2.1  Coloration

Her fur is golden-brown in appearance, primarily Tussock. It ranges into Potter's Clay along her sides and the upper half of her body. She is dusted around her shoulders and spine with Metallic Bronze and Asphalt. Her eyes are Sushi.

3.  Residence

3.1  D'Neville Mansion

4.  Trade

  • Wants: She's very interested in obtaining any kind of cookware, spice, recipe, and anything else cooking-relevant. Building tools and anything else relevant to woodworking are especially prized.
  • Offers: Edibles, recipes, common spices, teaching and knowledge (cooking and building both), skill as a builder (she'll help with any project, pretty much, but if it's clearly something that will only benefit your character she might demand payment)
  • Outer-Pack Trade: Maybe; contact Inferni leadership

5.  History

Born in southern Texas into a small coyote pack, Maddox spent her time following her father and older brothers as they worked at carpentry and construction projects for the pack. Although her frail mother disapproved of her only daughter engaging in dangerous work, Maddox was not to be deterred, and followed after her male relatives adamantly. Her acceptance amongst the laborers of the pack was primarily due to her skill -- woodwork was her passion.

She entered into a relationship with a fellow laborer and things went south. Thereafter, Maddox was excluded from the laborers even by her own family -- her father and brothers mocked her along with the rest, though they pretended nothing was awry elsewise. Maddox's sickly mother died shortly thereafter, and the mockery and ostracization entered the home, too. Maddox left, feeling she had nothing else within her home.

Maddox never saw a wolf until then -- and at that, her first encounter was mockery from an adolescent wolf. Her encounters with wolves were only downhill from there. She's been attacked quite a few times, though her luck has run rather hot as far as avoiding lasting damage. She traveled north slowly, stopping in the occasional pack or village to practice her trade.

At one point, she was coerced into working on a trading caravan by wolves, and endured harsh conditions and the threat of constant violence. This was precisely how she got quite so far north: from the Chesapeake Bay to Freetown, to be exact. Maddox was able to slip away from the trading caravan before it departed Freetown. She darted north, and happened upon another coyote with word of Inferni. Delighted to find a clan of coyotes so far north, Maddox marched up to the borders and was accepted as a member in September 2012.
