Merari Tears is a loner.

She was born in Inferni, the daughter of Redtooth and the Aquila Vicira Tears. She was born on the eve of the Inferni-Salsola War and rescued by her father when the mansion burned. When her mother became Aquila, the clan migrated to their ancestral homeland; Merari's first winter was one of hardship and starvation, but she and her brother survived to spring. Upon reaching the adult ranks, Merari focused on bettering the clan through menial labor (with a focus on woodworking and livestock) shirking any "real" responsibility. Unlike her ambitious littermate Boone Lykoi, she was lackadaisical in life and content to skate by.

However, her life changed drastically when terrible storms hit Inferni. Merari attempted to support her family (now expanded with two new baby brothers) through the trials that followed, but as a rift grew between Boone and their parents, she found herself unable to choose a side. In the end, the violent death of her little brother Rhodes Lykoi was the final straw for their family and Inferni; Vicira disbanded the clan and disappeared that night, with Redtooth vanishing shortly after during his search for her. Abandoned by her parents, Merari chose to join the motley group of coyotes left behind.

2.  Personality

Merari is cheerful, good-natured, and rather laidback. She is a good listener and easy to get along with, mischievous and playful. However, she is also rather reserved; she tends to be overly private and hold back most of her true thoughts and feelings. She tries to be logical in what she does, which makes her occasionally insensitive or clueless to what others are going through. This focus on logic does make her excellent in a crisis, as well as unbiased when it comes to making judgment calls. She tends to employ brutal honesty if she does express her opinion on something, though she never does it with malice.

A hands-on woman, Merari prefers "doing" rather than "planning." She likes practical tasks, often doing the mundane chores others like to shirk. But that doesn't mean she is boring -- Merari cannot stand being bored. An adventuresome spirit, Rari often pushes boundaries and takes risks just for fun -- whether that's climbing a mountain or stirring up trouble just for the excitement. She has difficulty with long-term commitments because of this focus on the present, though she is loyal to her beliefs and friends.

2.1  Ideals

Traits

  • Outlook: Optimistic
  • Sociability: Introverted
  • Expression: Dominant
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
    • Will break any contract when she feels like it.
    • Is generally well liked by her community, but normally will not seek to improve the community.
    • Will not betray a family member, unless the circumstances are dire.
    • Values flexible relationships with romantic partners.

Motivations

  • Hedonism, adventure, fun, trouble

Fears

  • --

Biases

  • Wolves are overly-hierarchical brutes who can't be trusted around minorities. Dogs and hybrids are totes okay.
  • Feral lifestyles are completely valid, and non-Luperci should not be turned against their will.
  • Men are dumb but straightforward, and women are a little harder for Merari to relate to.

Sexuality

  • ??? probably bisexual????
  • Intimacy is a physical act rather than an expression of love, so Merari has no problem separating sex from relationships. She will likely have a casual sex life, finding partners in strangers and friends alike.
  • She is probably into some shit because sex should be as fun as possible, ok?

Interests

  • Likes: Adventure, risk-taking, manual labor, pigs and sheep, ravens, cannabis
  • Dislikes: Rules and restrictions, boredom, great responsibility

Substances

  • weed good
  • alcohol ok

Spirituality

  • Atheist
  • Merari has difficulty conceptualizing an afterlife; the finality and nothingness of death reassures her.
  • Witnessing the faithful suffer for their gods, she has a low opinion of their supposed decrees.

3.  Relationships

3.1  Family

  • Extended: Merari is, through her mother, connected to the infamous and sprawling Lykoi family as well as, more distantly (and of lesser importance to her) Kimaris, Nothing, and Tears. Additionally, Merari has aunts and uncles -- some adoptive -- as well as a handful of "first cousins" whom she is close to.
  • Vicira Tears: Mother and leader, a broken pedestal. Merari doesn't think she can forgive her mother for her disappearance -- if she ever sees her again. She always felt like she never quite measured up to Vici's expectations, which doesn't help.
  • Redtooth: Merari was always a daddy's girl and frequently emulated Redtooth. She is worried about him and misses him dreadfully.
  • Boone Lykoi: Her ambitious littermate. They squabbled as children (and still do), but in the end, they usually have each other's backs against authority figures. Merari thinks Boone is kind of an arrogant idiot, but she doesn't mind being his "follower."
  • Nazario del Bosque: An adoptive older sibling that Rari considers as good as blood. She knows that she can depend on Nazario no matter what, and confides in him more than she does Boone.
  • Vesper: Grandmother, a relationship that remains positive despite the distance between them.
  • Rhodes Lykoi: The death of her little brother hit her extremely hard. Merari frequently has dreams about him.

3.2  Relations

Group Relations

  • Laurel del Bosque: A mentor figure; Merari knows there is more to Laurel than meets the eye.
  • Johnathan Winthrop: Her uncle, and her last tie to Redtooth. She trails around after him like a kid as a result.
