1.  Appearance

1.1  Build and Species

Grown into the life of wandering and self support, Nadia inherited her mother's smaller size and leaner build. However, traveling across different types of terrain has built muscle on the she-wolf, hidden behind her lean appearance. She is no powerhouse, but she is agile and can hold her own in close combat. Her fur is adept to her surroundings, fitting her wolf heritage, and able to provide warmth in winter, while being lighter in the summer. It is smooth along most of her body.

The form she used for most of her life, once was her preferred form. Preferred for traveling long distances, she appears lean and on the smaller side of average. The fur is scruffy around her shoulders, tending to stick up in places. Has the largest amount of stamina, agile and toned from travel.

Used only when hunting and fighting. She is large, but still only average in size for her subspecies. Her bulkiest form, but still rather lean in comparison to other Secui. Maintains agility to make up for less bulk, but still fierce in appearance. The scruffy fur between her shoulders has expanded along to her mid back and up to behind her head, still sticking up in places. Her claws and fangs are longer. The tips of her canines just barely hide under her lips.

He preferred form. On two legs, Nadia becomes lean once more. Not curvy, but possesses an athletic, toned build from travel, with small breasts. Her mane becomes smooth and straight, and reaches the middle of her back. It is normally tied back or braided to keep it out of the way. She carries herself more in a wolf-like manner, and does not cut the tufts on her elbows and hind legs.

2.  Personality

Lack of socialization outside the family has made Nadia taciturn and even awkward in social settings. She says little most of the time, simply because she has little to say. She is a better listener in these situations, content to let the other talk. She can be hesitant in speaking her mind as a result, though when she does speaks, she's honest. She is more likely to be open to those she knows, and keeps a large part of her personal life and history to herself. When she's alone and exploring an unknown territory, she tends to be on the more cautious side. For better or for worse, Nadia is sometimes held back by her past. Certain large decisions can make her question herself, and has put her through a period of self-consciousness/insecurity over who she was.

Nadia can be patient and slow to anger, but can also be intimidating if push comes to shove. She can be very hard working and serious, dedicated to tasks set before her. Sometimes, she may come off as a workaholic, given to how much she is willing to do to keep busy. When working, she puts up with little distraction, and dislikes those who slack off or goof off. She saves play for the times when there isn't work to be done, and allows herself to relax during these times. She has a pretty clear set of moral values, though isn't very quick to judge people for their actions, unless they are quite severe.

5.  History

Biography:Nadia had a rather simple life as a child. She was born to her mother, Lydia, and had two brothers, Alik and Dimitri near what was once the Algonquin National Park. She never knew her father, who had left well before she and her brothers were born. In truth, though never told, she and her brothers were the result of a one-night-stand her mother had with another loner. Her mother was a bit of a vagabond, and never really liked settling for a long period of time. As soon as they were old enough, her mother had them on the move. Thus, for a majority of her life, Nadia never belonged to a pack.

While she never knew it, Nadia's mother had been a normal wolf-turned Luperci. Her mother felt that her two other forms were not as useful as the Lupus form she had been used to. Her mother warmed up to using the Secui form for hunting and fighting, but she saw little use for the Optime form. She instilled these views onto Nadia and her brothers, and as a result, Nadia spent little time shifting to her two-legged form. Four legs seemed like a natural thing to her. She was taught self defense and feral fighting by her mother, who saw them as necessities for survival as a loner. A loner who was unprepared was as good as a dead one in her eyes.

By the time she was one, Nadia and her family took separate paths to wander off or start their own lives. She had yearned to travel on her own, and began to mimic her mother's lifestyle, passing into Maine. It was there were she had ran into Clodoveo. He had been the strangest thing to her, finding him with a horse, traveling about on the steed or on two legs, clothed even! To her, he was alien, and fascinated her. She was drawn to him, and wound up allowing him to travel with her. He became the influence in her life to use her Optime form more often, and it slowly became the form she felt comfortable in. Of course, she still used her four legged forms for travel and hunting, but she wasn't constantly on all fours. He even to her used to wearing clothes, which had been a bit of a transition.

The two headed north and by summer, found themselves entering Souls. Nadia began to feel lonely, and was losing interest in her life of traveling with no home. The life of defying instinct and following in her mother's was going to end. In an attempt to find out something about the land before settling, Nadia broke off for one final adventure...
