Scorpius D'Angelo

Midnight

Realistic Reference

Species Percheron Horse
Type Dark Blue Roan
DOB May 2008
Gender Mare

Name

Pronounced --
Meaning black
Origin English

Residence

Scorpius's House -- not allowed to roam.

Description

Midnight is a large and sturdy mare standing roughly nineteen hands (6ft; 2m) high at the shoulder and weighing in at around 1900 pounds (862kg), an ideal size for a large male like Scorpius. She is a very dark blue roan that is often mistaken for black but in the sunlight she displays a faint grey-blue color over the black base underneath. Her whole body is ticked and dappled with small markings in varying shapes and sizes though none larger than an inch or who and all in pitch black. Her hoofs, mane, and tail are all pure black, as is most of her face. Black reaches up from her hoofs to midway up the forearm in front and midway up the quarter in the back. Her eyes are striking icy blue.

Personality

Around Scorpius Midnight is very tame, good-natured, and easy to handle. She enjoys spending time with her master just as much as being alone and since becoming a mother has grown much more affectionate than in the past. She is still nonetheless strong-willed though levelheaded, tough and fearless, sure-footed, dependable, and quick. She loves to run freely whenever she can but is equally comfortable with a saddle and rider, though she will let you know when she's had enough. Around anyone else she deems untrustworthy she is a force to be reckoned with. Any stranger attempting to handle her will find her hard to control, unruly, and ignorant of commands or direction and anyone who attempts to ride her will likely receive a swift kick, buck, or bite.

Jet

Realistic Reference

Species Black Eagle
DOB June 2012
Gender Male

Name

Pronounced --
Meaning black
Origin English

Residence

Scorpius's House -- allowed to freely roam.

Description

As relatively large bird of prey Jet measures 32 inches (80cm) long from head to tail base with an impressive 72 inch (180cm) wingspan and weighs in at around 4 pounds (1600g). He is as his name suggests, a stark jet black from head to toe with an almost indistinguishable barring of dark brown on his primary and tail feathers. His flesh and feet are pale yellow, as is his beak though it fades into silver and then dark grey as it curves into a point. His talons are black while his eyes are deep amber.

Personality

Strict, driven, and dutiful, Jet is a well trained tracking and hunting machine. He follows his orders to the letter and is very precise in everything he does, whether it be hunting or fishing for prey, tracking a specific target, or scouting ahead of Scorpius. Although he is well taken care of Jet is not a companion or a pet. Scorpius sees the bird more as a tool, something he can use to his advantage. Jet knows this and is quite content with his role, making his relationship with Scorpius an amicable symbiosis and nothing more. He has a good understanding of high speech and can speak a little.

Tidbits

  • Born in Ontario, Canada
  • Captured by traveling traders
  • Trained to scout, track, and hunt
  • Bought by Scorpius in Freetown


Ivor

Realistic Reference

Species Kermode Bear
DOB January 2015
Gender Male

Name

Pronounced Eye-vore
Meaning ivory
Origin English

Residence

Scorpius's House -- not allowed to roam.

Description

Due to a recessive leucism gene Ivor was born completely white instead of the natural black coloration of his species. Fully grown the formidable bear stands at 42 inches (107cm) tall at the shoulder, measures 78 inches (198cm) long, and weighs approximately 300 pounds (137kg). His thick fur is a plain off-white cream color all over with a dusting of champagne on his nape, shoulders, and back. His nose is a dark salmon color while his flesh, pads, and claws are all black. His eyes are a bright forest green.

Personality

Now a full grown adult with years of dedicated training behind him Ivor is a hardened and steadfast beast who is highly intelligent, perceptive, and indomitable. He is truly a force to be reckoned with, though not without the boundless curiosity and sense of humor of his youth. Stern and serious when need be but also somewhat easygoing and mellow, Ivor is well adjusted to living as a bear among luperci. He is fluent in high speech, speaks well, and is easy to understand, though there is still a growly bear drawl to his words.

Daeva Lykoi

Indra

Species Marwari Horse
Type White Mimic
DOB April 2008
Gender Stallion

Name

Pronounced In-drah
Meaning god of rain and storms
Origin Hindu Mythology

Residence

--

Description

Standing sixteen hands (5ft 5in; 1.5m) high at the withers and weighing in at 2,000 pounds (907kg), Indra is a beast of a horse. He is entirely stark white from head to hoof with the exception of his mane and tail which begin as light grey near his body and darkens through a gradient into an off-black color near the tips. His nose begins as a soft pinkish color that shifts into the same off-black of his mane and tail before fading smoothly to the white of his body color halfway up his face. His hoofs are an off-white ivory color while his ears are the same off-black color as his mane and tail. He is a lean and long legged horse built for agility and speed but also does well walking long distances and pulling carts, making him a well rounded jack of all trades. The most striking feature are his ear tips, which curve inwards toward each other. His eyes are dark brown.

Personality

Indra is a big and strong horse who is independent, headstrong, and can be pretty stubborn and unruly at times. For the most part, however, he is a gentle creature who is very loyal and protective of Daeva. He shows a strong drive to please and works well with the hybrid, heeding her commands easily enough without too much guidance. He is not very well socialized with other canines or other horses and can become rough or even aggressive with strangers, especially those untrained in handling horses.

Tidbits

  • Born on a ranch in India
  • Bought by the Varuna family
  • Gifted to Sakti Varuna
  • Brought to Freetown
  • Stolen by Daeva
  • Purebed Marwari horse, carrier of grey dapple gene

Meaning goddess of destruction
Origin Hindu Mythology

Residence

--

Description

Average sized for her species Kali is 20 inches (51 cm) long with a 12 inch (31 cm) tail and a 60 inch (152 cm) wingspan. She weighs approximately 1,100 grams. She is sleek, slim, and elegant and carries herself in a very dignified manner, a testament to both her upbringing and her training. Her head and chest are creamy white while her lower body and legs are a warm cocoa brown. On the dorsal (top/back) side of her body her wings and tail are the same brown as her lower body and dark black at the tips while on the ventral (lower/under) side of her body her coverts, primary, and secondary wing feathers and tail feathers are all the same white as her head. Her beak and legs are pale yellow. Her eyes are bright gold.

Personality

Kali is calm, stoic, and poised, highly observant, patient, and keenly aware of her surroundings. She is well trained and loves hunting, either on her own or helping out Daeva. She is highly intelligent and very curious, always wanting to know what's going on or watch whatever Daeva is doing. She is very close to Daeva and can be protective of her. Although she has a good grasp of high speech she doesn't speak much and only ever speaks when the conversation absolutely requires a spoken response. Otherwise she nods, shakes her head, or uses low speech to communicate. She never speaks to strangers. She loves being clean and enjoys pruning and maintaining her feathers whenever she has some down time.

Tidbits

  • Born to bird trainers in India
  • Gifted to the Varuna family

Yama

Species Red Fox
Type Cross
DOB February 2015
Gender Male

Name

Pronounced Yah-mah
Meaning Lord of death
Origin Hindu Mythology

Residence

--

Description

Yama stands around 22 inches (56 cm) tall at the shoulder, reaching a length of about 36 inches (91 cm) without his tail - which is about 20 inches (51 cm) long - and weighs in at approximately 24 pounds (11 kg). During the spring and summer his fur is predominantly black with hunts of coppery orange and a rather short length while in the autumn and winter it lightens a few shades and grows out much longer and thicker. The white inside his ears and on the tip of his tail never changes, nor does the black mask on his face. He is a sleek and slender fox with large paws and is quick, agile, and incredibly sneaky.

Personality

Raised by Daeva from a very young age the wily fox has adopted much of her personality and is a sly, sneaky, and mischievous individual. He is always watching and always listening, always keenly aware of whatever is going on around him and often goes unnoticed when others are around. He uses this to his advantage and collects information for Daeva, bringing her gossip, stories, and secrets from wherever he's been wandering. When not spying on others Yama can be a bit of a kleptomaniac and loves to get into things and steal whatever he finds interesting, which is most often shiny things that catch his eye.

Tidbits

  • Born in Ontario, Canada
  • Orphaned by fur traders
  • "Adopted" by Daeva


Vesta

Ignis

Realistic Reference

Species Noriker Horse
Type Flaxen Chestnut
DOB November 2008
Gender Stallion

Name

Pronounced Igg-niss
Meaning fire
Origin Latin

Residence

Scorpius's House -- not allowed to roam.

Description

The gentle giant stands at a lofty seventeen hands (5.5ft, 1.7m) high at the withers and weighs approximately 2,200 pounds (998kg). He is mainly a warm dark chestnut color that fades through a gradient into caramel around his upper legs and underbelly lightening more into a soft gold color on his lower legs and eventually shifting into an ivory color at his off-white hoofs. He has very faint brown primitive markings in the form of a dorsal stripe running up from the base of his tail to just about the middle of his back and leg barring near the hocks of his back legs and the elbows of his forelegs. His mane and tail are a beautiful flaxen blonde color that starts out golden yellow near his body and smoothly lightens to almost white near the tips due to hair frosting and sun bleaching. The hair of his mane and tail is also slightly wavy instead of straight and he has a light feathering of hair around his hoofs. Both his mane and tail are very long and his forelock regularly falls into his eyes which are a rich honey gold color. Ignis is a stout and sturdy draft horse with a low center of gravity making him sure-footed and well balanced. Though he isn't very fast or agile, he has exceptionally high strength and endurance.

Personality

Ignis is the definition of docile. He is calm, gentle, and very compliant, easily heeding the orders of pretty much everyone, but he understands Vesta the best. He is a little bit dumb and will only perform admirably when given enough instruction but for general riding and cart pulling he is always very good. He is unmatched in stamina and is incredibly hardy, well accustomed to extreme heat and extreme cold. He is also very adaptable and pliant, able to adjust to pretty much any task or surroundings. All he wants to do is please and he does just as well as a war horse as he does as a work horse.

Tidbits

  • Born on a ranch in southern Norway
  • Underwent training as a war horse
  • Stolen by a wandering trader
  • Sold to Henrick Valdemar
  • Stolen by Vesta
  • Purebred Noriker horse, carrier of cream (palomino) gene


Ardor

Species Eurasian Lynx
DOB October 2010
Gender Male

Name

Pronounced Arr-dore
Meaning fire
Origin Latin

Residence

Scorpius's House -- allowed to freely roam.

Description

Due to being raised among luperci Ardor is slightly larger than his wild brethren, standing 30 inches (76cm) tall at the shoulder and reaching a length of 50 inches (127cm) with a 6 inch (15cm) tail. He weighs approximately 60 pounds (27kg). He is somewhat stocky with thickly built legs and large heavy paws making him quite a muscular cat built more for strength and stamina than speed and agility. In the spring and summer months his fur is slightly shorter and less dense, appearing a soft light brown color with darker brown spots. His inner ears, around his eyes, muzzle, cheeks, throat, chest, and underbelly are all white with black spots. The tips of his ears and ear tufts are also black. In the autumn and winter months his fur lengthens slightly and thickens greatly, appearing a much darker grey-brown color with black spots. The white and black on his body always remains the same. His flesh, nose, pads, and claws are all black as well. His eyes are hazel flecked with jade.

Personality

Ardor has never truly lived the life of a wild animal and it shows in the way he goes about his life, and while not completely dependent on luperci - as he is capable of hunting for himself - he very obviously relies on them and is far more comfortable around them than his own kind, which he has encountered very few of. He acts very much like one would expect a non-luperci canine would among the shifting kind and has adapted to living more civilized than wild cats. He thinks of himself as quite refined and likes to stay as clean as possible, avoiding mud and dirt when he can. Though highly cultured he is not pretentious and does not think himself above anyone else, though he does consider himself superior to wild cats. Though somewhat antisocial he does love watching and is a keenly observant individual, aloof at times but not cold, and friendly to those he considers his friends.

Tidbits

  • Born and raised in captivity
  • Sold as a pet to various luperci
  • Left his last owner and lived wild
  • Encountered Vesta and followed her

Conor

Species Domestic Cat
DOB 2013
Gender Male

Name

Pronounced Con-or
Meaning dog/wolf lover
Origin Gaelic

Residence

Duncan's House -- allowed to freely roam.

Description

Conor is a rare male calico cat roughly fourteen inches (36cm) tall at the shoulder weighing about twelve pounds (6kg). He is mainly a mixture of Woodsmoke (#101616) black and Tuscany (#B96E29) orange which covers most of his back, sides, neck, head, and hind legs. Catskill (#E5EEF3) white covers his forelegs, chest, underbelly, and the tip of his tail. His eyes are Woodland (#4E5220) green. Due to his unique genetics he was born with polydactylism, giving him six toes on each paw for a total of twenty-four toes altogether. Due to heavy exposure to luperci, he is fluent in high speech and well adjusted to living among luperci.

Personality

Although he thinks of himself as an intellectual Conor is very much an average run-of-the-mill tomcat. Most of the time, when he's not lazing the day away sleeping in a patch of sunlight, he busies himself with staring out windows, chasing bugs and mice, bothering Ardor, or accompanying Duncan around the pack. He is a little bit of a ruffian and not above bouts of horseplay with Duncan, Ardor, or any other cat or canine willing to tussle with him, but most of the time he'd rather just curl up in someone's lap and have his rump scratched. He can be brazen, opinionated, snarky, and even snide when he wants to be, but for the most part he is quite loveable, easygoing, and talkative.
