Nazario del Bosque is a coywolf, born in Inferni as result of an ill-fated and non-consensual encounter between reluctant mother Joaquina del Bosque (né Liliana Alvarez), and her abusive brother, Fidel Alvarez. Joaquina denied her pregnancy up until the end, and died during childbirth, orphaning her seven puppies. Over the following days, the litter succumbed to starvation and an unknown illness that plagued Inferni. Nazario was the sole survivor.

With the coyote clan to back his upbringing, young Nazario did not want for much in times of plenty, falling in line with the teachings of a series of mentors and fostering a sense of independence early on. He frequently tagged along the heels of Vicira Tears, who acted as a steadfast mother-figure and the hand which molded much of Nazario's beliefs, interests and habits. Throughout his doubts and tribulations in regards to identity and instability by way of familial bonds, Vicira offered guidance to shape the fledgling del Bosque into a force to be reckoned with, for better or worse. Reckless, patriotic, and stubborn, Nazario grew with a subtly inflated ego and an unchecked righteousness.

At the dawn of the Inferni-Salsola War, and not soon after his first shift, a prideful Nazario entangled in an altercation with Salsola's Helena Troy Lykoi, fancying himself a champion for cause - Instead of attaining victory, the young coywolf instead lost his eye. In the wake of the war, Vicira usurped then-Aquila Vesper, and moved the clan back to ancestral lands, where further hardship ensued. Hard winters, illness, and starvation tested the mettle of the clan's foundations; With other Infernians to consider over his own needs, Nazario dedicated himself to providing for others while times grew lean, up until the coyote clan's disbanding.

Initially a part of the party planning to leave with Vicira, she vanished in the night, and shortly after, Andrew Greygrief (né Redtooth), took off in pursuit, charging Nazario with the well-being of siblings Merari Tears and Boone Winthrop. What little remained of Inferni banded loosely together to form The Cartel. The group wandered with partial-put-together plans, and scraped by with arguable success - over time, their ideals shifted and drifted apart, and the original Infernian band grew thin.

A move, pushed by Nazario's deep suspicions of Salsolan interference in the band's actions put The Cartel trajectory on course to meet another coyote-dominant band by the name of the Drygrass Posse, stuck in some early-winter snow. The two bands grew an allegiance, pledging safety towards one anothers' goals of survival. When a common enemy threatened the bands' well beings, and went so far as to butcher one of the Drygrass Posse's members, the two groups banded together to dispatch the wolf threat, and subsequently merged together to form the Del Cenere Gang. Nazario del Bosque currently sits as the gang's Rey Salvaje, with his brother, Boone appointed as his second hand, and Comandante.

With the intent to amass fortune, his brother initiated a trade route with a place called Palisade, with a family going by the Del Mar. While initially suspicious and wary of Boone's transgression, Nazario has slowly warmed to the idea, but remains cautious in his appreciation.


Bred by skin, born to dust; Raised in flame and aged in rust, Build an altar on high for the world to see.

U N C O M M O N · U S E


Long-legged, and larger proportioned than the average coyote. There is a broadness to his proportions and a barrel-box shaped chest which betrays his hybrid heritage. This form is otherwise quick, and swift, and often used for small-scale hunting of hares, rabbits, or rodents.

U N C O M M O N · U S E


Bulky, lumbering, and potentially the least used of all three of his forms, Nazario uses his secui shape for hunting larger prey. There's a slight slope to his back as he carries heavier weight into his shoulders, and his coat comes in shaggy and unkempt.

C O M M O N · U S E


On the taller side, broad-shouldered, lean, and rigid. Due to the convenience of hands, Nazario tends to prefer this form for both utility and aesthetics. His palms are rough and calloused from work, and his posture is rather tall, his body language reserved.

Nazario is unmistakably a coywolf hybrid with the rich coloration of Mexican subspecies. His coat is short but dense, with a thick and coarse guard hairs, and his optime hair is choppy, unkempt, and kept trimmed on the shorter side. His features are a touch on the broad side, with somewhat tall ears and while his muzzle is slim, it possesses less of a taper and point to a purebred coyote.

D I S T I N C T I V E · F E A T U R E S


Nazario possesses two scars: a y-shaped slice over his (now missing) right eye from an altercation, and a jagged triangle that hugs the edge of his right shoulder blade from the point of an arrowhead.

E X P R E S S I O N


  • Speech: Low, soft, and oftentimes thoughtful. He thinks before he speaks, sometimes at the risk of seeming over-calculating, but stumbles over his words when flustered.
  • Scent: Coyote, leather, horses, smoke, sage, pine.
  • General Posture: Not nearly as casual as he would like to project - Nazario's body language is guarded, closed off, and tentative. He does carry himself solidly, and moves his hands firmly and with guiding motion - there's purpose in his sparse actions.

You haven't met me, I am the only son

PRIVATE • LOYAL • ALOOF

LOREM IPSUM

2.1  Ideals

Traits

  • Outlook: Pessimistic Realist
  • Sociability: Ambiverted
  • Expression: Dominant
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral with Chaotic Neutral leanings
    • Shall not kill the innocent, and work to protect them - though his concept of "innocence" may be skewed by personal biases.
    • Shall honor legitimate authority, unless the law conflicts with his personal ideals, to which he will honor his own authority over others.
    • Shall not betray others or oaths, even at great risk to himself, because in the end, a man's word is his character, and it's important to be faithful to himself.
    • Shall promote unlimited freedom for himself and those gathered under him, unless circumstances could prove actions detrimental.
    • Shall not aid criminals, though morality is gray, and the perception of criminality is wholly subjective, and exhibits his biases openly.

Motivations

Fears

  • Abandonment, failure, vulnerability

Biases

  • Packs: Anti-Salsola - he harbors suspicions and ill will from the Inferni-Salsola War, and believes they are solely at fault for the downfall of Inferni. Del Cenere Gang is his new home, and, frankly, his everything, and he will go to extreme ends to protect it.
  • Species: Pro-coyote. Very pro-coyote, and biased against wolves, if only because Salsola's numbers boast a large amount of wolf-hybrids. Largely denies his own wolf heritage, if only to himself.

Sexuality

Kinsey 1 - Predominantly heterosexual, only incidentally homosexual

  • Due to some unresolved abandonment issues, Nazario fears commitment and may prove to be a flighty lover and difficult to get close to when it comes to romantic attraction.
  • He's more likely to experience attraction to coyote and coyote-hybrids.
  • Values loyalty and honesty in a relationship, and finds it difficult to engage with others without having a foundation of trust.

Interests

Substances

Drinks alcohol on occasion. Smokes tobacco, dabbles in marijuana.

Spirituality

  • Shamanistic
    • HELL YEAH CENIZAN CULTURE

3.  Relationships

3.1  Key Relations

  • She raised him, taught him, groomed him with much of what she knew, and Nazario grew to regard Vicira as his own mother, and put her own an untouchable pedestal. Much of who he is, who he has grown to be, was under the careful molding and love fed to him by his mentor. And now she's gone.
  • The bond with his adoptive mother roped in him, as well, and Redtooth became a steadfast fatherly figure in the early stages of his life. While their initial relationship started off awkward, he nonetheless loves his adoptive father, and attempts to be as easy-going and down to earth as the Winthrop man, and tries to put forth effort into their handy endeavors. Something's happened, though; but he holds out hope that there will be a return to normalcy.
  • His sister is a clever, smart, and capable girl, who he thinks spends much of her time inactive and passive with life. Despite her easy manner of expression, she's responsible, and reliable, and Nazario values Merari highly; he's deeply protective of her, in any regard.
  • Boone Lykoi is his gutsy, power-mad partner in crime. Any of Boone's plans, Nazario wants to be a part of, not only because they are lucrative, but because Boone is a spitfire, a loose canon, and he can't help but worry that his younger brother will test his luck and spread it too thin in a dangerous situation. He's wounded Boone wasn't forthright and open with his nigh-traitorous plans on departing Inferni, and thus feels as though he can't share as much as he can with their more level-headed sister.

3.2  Family: del Bosque

* denotes a character Nazario does not know.

  • Mother: Joaquina del Bosque*, Vicira Tears (Adoptive)
  • Father: Fidel Alvarez*, Redtooth (Adoptive)
  • Siblings: Unnamed x6*, Merari Tears (Adoptive), Boone Lykoi (Adoptive), Eli Winthrop (Adoptive), Rhodes Lykoi (Adoptive)
  • Extended: Nazario, like his mother, was brought into the fold of the del Bosque family. He has no blood relations to these individuals, but the beliefs of Ceniza Valley do not differentiate between relatives and non-blood "family" including close companions, adoptive parents, childhood friends, and even loners who simply don't have a home. Nazario grew to see all of Inferni as family, and regards Vicira, Redtooth and their brood as blood.
