Naum Valentine is one of three puppies born to Till Van Ulrich Lykoi, & Calla Valentine. Naum, unlike either of his sisters, does not receive a lot of attentions from his mother growing up, though he craves it like a fish craves water. As a result, he often displays symptoms of depression and anxiety from a younger age. Often confused by his name since all three of his parents pronounce his name differently, he has taken to calling himself Nah, a shortened portion of his name that is easier for him to remember. He quite favors his father, Till, and his older brothers Chester Valentine and Coaxoch Ulrich and has shown a fondness for the servants of the home for their continued support.

As a child born into the Thistle Kingdom, he will grow up learning the customs of Salsola and act based upon Salsola's best interests and his own, as dictated by the marriage of his parents. His own interests are very likely to focus on the physical unlike his older brother Julius Valentine or his sister, Kalani Lykoi. He will, from a very young age, show a passion for hunting and setting traps and very possibly, eventually branch off into the more dangerous aspects of being a warrior. He will have a fondness for bows or ranged weapons which will push him toward the ambitions of eventually becoming the Striker of Salsola.


Naum is still in the process of being created and fleshed out for his future player

PLOT OPPORTUNITY

  • Pack:
  • Rank:
    • Coranks: --

Salsola members may assume and reference the following with discussion/asking:

  • Seeing Naum throughout the Ruins of Salsola
    • With his mother, father and siblings
    • Playing with other Salsola Children
  • General conversations. Specific conversations, especially those that may later affect RP, should be PMd before occurring.
  • Naum is not spoiled or even paid much attention to by his mother and he has developed something of an interest in the servants of the Valentine-Lykoi household that his parents keep. He's mean to his sister, Kalani Lykoi, and can be a depressive little gremlin.
  • Naum has several potential plots that may coincide with Salsola members. Family members include several prominent characters such as Till Van Ulrich Lykoi, and Brocade Valentine.
  • Naum will develop an interest in war and battle. He will very likely be adept at scouting and long ranged combat with a bow or a spear or some other variety of sling/shooting weapon.
  • Naum is a little like his brother, Julius, though not outright, but it's very noticeable that he follows a dark path that can become darker if he doesn't let go of his desire to be close to his mother or to his father.

1.  Appearance

1.1  Basics

Essentials

  • Species: Naum appears heavily coyote despite the fact that he is a hybrid of three different species. The only way to tell him apart from a typical coyote is that he has his father's height and his uncle's sturdy composition. He has large, radar like ears and pronounced cheek fur that gives away some of his wolfish heritage but also a tapered, angular muzzle that ends with a pronounced nose, typical for a wolf.
  • Fur: Shorter than either of his sisters, Naum's fur is shorter and coarse like the coyote blood he's inherited except for in his cheeks and tail. He will regularly comb or change his hairstyle at the drop of a dime to whatever is more suitable for his environment and can go either way, depending on who adopts him.
    • Optime Hair: TBD
  • Facial Features: Large, radar like ears with pronounced cheek tuft. He has a long, tapered, angular muzzle and a hefty nose.
  • Build and Size: Naum takes after his uncle, Brocade. He is sturdy and built large but also has the coyote's long lope and gait. He is broad shouldered and well muscled for a youth his age and will only grow more so given the proper time and training that allots. He will have well defined shoulders and legs that will leave him well rounded as a warrior when it gets older.
  • Humanization: Very humanized

1.2  Forms

Lupus

  • Weight: 60 lbs (38.55 kg)
  • Height: 30 in (81.28 cm)
  • Larger than either of his parents, he looks the part of a hybrid but more coyote than any of his other ancestry
  • Bulkier than coyote but has the gait of one.

Secui

  • Weight: 150 lbs (77.1 kg)
  • Height: 40 in (101.6 cm)
  • Nearly double the weight and far larger than his lupus, he looks the part of a halfling to the core, often choosing to keep his claws unsheathed for steadier footing since the difference between the two forms are so defined.
  • Mainly used for hunting or feral fighting, though he dislikes using this form on a regular basis.

Optime

  • Weight: 280 lbs (83.92 kg)
  • Height: 6ft 5in (69 in) (175.26 cm)
  • He is lean but bulky at the same time with muscle. He's got a runner's physique but a warrior's lean build. His hair is quite long and usually kept spiky when it isn't worn in a pony tail with the bangs out front. Reference: Here
  • He is primarily found in optime form since it makes the most sense with his path as a warrior and with his other skills.

2.  Personality

Kalani has the propensity to grow up quite spoiled unlike either of her siblings. However, she most likely won't due to the fact that she can see the unfairness of being treated better by her mother than any of her other siblings, aside from Chester. She does what she can to further Salsola's cause as if it's her own and she likes being around other people to a fault. She craves attention from time to time, something forced on her by her mother, but she also loves the silence of being alone when there's time to. She is lovable, caring, and can be absolutely bubbly at times but will probably mellow out as she gets older.

She somewhat gives of the vibe of sweet innocence and doesn't really like to get as dirty as some of her siblings when it comes to outside sources. She will be very good at lying though, and coming up with stories. She will have quite a bit of flair to her when it comes to diplomacy and possibly witchy things like her mother. It's also easy for her to get dragged into drama since she loves to stir the pot frequently since it usually isn't her who gets in trouble.

2.1  Ideals

Interests

Traits

Depressing, Gremlin, Withheld, Ambitious, Earnest, Honest, Loyal

  • Outlook: Pessimistic
  • Expression: Introverted and Dominant
  • Alignment: Neutral

Fears

  • Always being picked on
  • Abandonment
  • Loss of family

Motivations

  • Protecting and standing up for her siblings
  • Rising through Salsola's ranks
  • Becoming a warrior

Spirituality

  • He will very likely be enthralled by the witches of Salsola but not enough to follow their religion. While he will be wary of spirits and pissing them off, he will also do his own thing despite what the spirits or his mother thinks. That means, he'll believe there's a higher power but not know who or what that higher power is or what they want. Agnostic.

Biases

  • Species: He has no disdain toward any species since he is a mixture of all of them together.
  • Sexuality: Naum will very much be for same sex marriages or mateships.
  • Age: Old people and puppies should be protected at all costs.

Sexuality

  • Heterosexual
  • Naum respects his parents and their choices but he will naturally prefer the company of women to men when it comes to actual relationships or potential mate ship down the line. He will be up for one night stands or for committed relationships. He'll also believe in staying true to one partner when he's in a relationship, unlike the example he's shown during his childhood with his parents.

Substances

  • He is a puppy but he will likely love the taste of alcohol and partake in cannabis on a regular basis. Tobacco also has its drawls but he'll avoid it for the most part since he'll dislike the smell.

3.  Relationships

3.1  Key Relations

  • Till Van Ulrich Lykoi is one of Naum's male role models and someone he looks up to heavily. He will likely crave his father's attention more than his mother's when she focuses on his siblings and later, just Kalani, but will inevitably follow his father around like a lost puppy, literally.
  • Brocade Valentine is his uncle and a rigid male role model for him to look up to as a goal for his future. As a high ranking member of Salsola and a warrior on top of that, Brocade is everything that little Naum would and could ever want to be.

3.2  Family: Silevue, Ulrich, Lykoi, Kimaris, Damaichu, and Sadira

3.3  Other

Relations

Family Relations

  • Till Van Ulrich Lykoi: is his father and one of Naum's male role models and someone he looks up to heavily. He will likely crave his father's attention more than his mother's when she focuses on his siblings and later, just Kalani, but will inevitably follow his father around like a lost puppy, literally.
  • Calla Valentine: is his birth mother and he loves her, but he also hates her for not having the time or attention span to give him one-on-one bonding time that pups so crave. He will grow to revere his mother as the witch she is and will respect her as a high ranking member of Salsola but he will be otherwise dismissive of her views and respect his own path away from hers.
  • Maephis Valekoi: is Naum's sister and he can see the darkness in her as clear as night and day. Of course, he does nothing about it because she at least had their mother's attentions to start out. He believes it is her own fault that she lost their mother's favor and he will often pick on her in regards to how she has a different name than any of their siblings. But he'll also be one of the few to show devotion to her in the off chance that she ever gets in trouble. After all, she's his sister and his responsibility, right?
  • Kalani Lykoi: is Naum's sister and he despises her. She is everything that he hopes to avoid and she often picks and teases him and earns his ire simply by calling him 'Gnome', rather than what his real, true name is. He loves her, too, to a fault, and can see the potential she has and the reason why their mother chose to focus her attentions on her. After all, she has the same flare and passion that both of their mothers have, only stronger since she's being trained to from a younger age. He dislikes how positive she can be and has an earnest disdain for the pity she seems to show him and Maephis in regards to the attention their mother has chosen to lay upon her.
