Significancespiritual leader for the pack, founding member

Job

The Godja is a specialised rank and relates directly to the Norse influence in Vinátta. Technically a Priestess (or a Priest, named Godi) the wolf is a religious guide to those who may have need of said guidance. Alternatively, Vinátta accepts all religions and belief systems and the Godja must offer guidance to those religions not specifically her own. As Vinátta also accepts members with no belief system, the Godja acts as a counselor to their worries and woes. If a member does not feel comfortable talking with their leaders or the leaders of their path, they are encouraged to talk to the Godja - who acts in confidentiality.

Personality

Deep-rooted in her faith, Miskunn served the Norse Gods out of adoration and gratitude. She gave herself to no male, living celibacy as an expression of her unconditional love for her religion; ultimately seeing mateships as a potential distraction from her life's work. She was known to be a silent observer, choosing to speak only when necessary. She was a woman of few words adored by the masses, her extensive knowledge of Norse mythology and Old Norse language earning her the title of Godja.

Having given her best years to the pack, Miskunn was venerated as Vinatta's guiding light. Her loyalty held no boundaries. She would not hesitate to shed blood if it meant protecting her loved ones.

Miskunn was killed during the Blackbourne Conflict on January 19, 2017.

Residence

Miskunn has lived in Jordheim since the foundation of Vinátta — she is arguably the first-ever resident. Her home is on the southernmost edge of the village, and is recognizable by the small heaps of Horgr stone altars dotting the lawn. The interior of her house is utilitarian and quite bare considering how long she has lived there, but given that the Godja spends most of her waking hours in the Sacred Grove, it is understandable.

Relationships

Family: Stormbringer

See the family page for a complete genealogy. Miskunn is related to many members of Vinátta due to the prominence of Stormbringer heritage there.

Appearance

Miskunn's basic pelt coloration is predominantly Copper. A variety of similar tones, such as Dark Oak and Raw Sienna contribute to a harmonious blend of hues by fusing darker and lighter shades into her otherwise monochromatic coat. Her mane is a Dallas Brown worthy of the same earthy palette. Her wild Sterling irises are almost unsettling, a testament to the fierceness within.

  • Since her injury in the Spring 2015 Flood, she has been showing signs of arthritis and general slowing-down, though she stubbornly refuses to give up any of her duties thus far.
  • Gold bangles can be seen on both of her arms.
  • Wears a loose toga-like dress.
  • Often can be seen with her staff, adorned with decorative feathers.
