Ninian Stormbringer

Ninian Stormbringer is the daughter of mates Niernan Stormbringer and Colibri Haki, born and raised in Vinátta. She is a hunter and scout aspiring to her father's Vald tier. Notably due to birth trauma, Ninian has weak vocal cords and elects to speak infrequently and softly so as not to strain her voice.

Appearance

Coloration

  • Eyes: Loblolly (#B4C8CC).
  • Nose: Toast (#A37265).
  • Fur:
    • Porcelain (#E2E6E7) is her base color, underside, cheeks.
    • Yuma (#CDBE92) highlights her ruff, forelegs, back.
    • Potters Clay (#956731) marks her tear stripes, tail, shoulders.
    • Dallas (#6D4A21) ticking in her ruff.

Ninian's wolf parents contributed an even blend of arctic and timber heritage, though she displays more traits typical to arctic wolves such as a shorter muzzle and wider paws. She boasts a thick off-white coat with creamy highlights, while warm chocolate-brown marks her withers, tail tip, and tear stripes. With Stormbringer and Soul heritage combined, she was bound to have blue eyes, and indeed Ninian's irises are a ghost-pale shade of puppy-blue she will never outgrow.

She inherited the small build of her dam, with the lean athletic grace of her sire. She is sleek and healthy, having grown up well-fed and cared for within the pack. Ninian is somewhat feminine and curvy in appearance, though no traits in particular stand out, and she has not yet settled on an Optime hairstyle.

Average arctic wolf in build; thick fur hides her toned body.

Too heavy for her liking; she overheats due to the thickness of fur.

On the smaller side, balanced curves and muscle befitting an athlete.

Interaction

  • Speech: Subtle Irish accent, learned from imitating her sire. Ninian's vocal cords were damaged[1] during her difficult birth: she is incapable of howling or shouting, and speaks in a breathy whisper so as not to strain her voice. Attempts to bark or raise her volume result in a hoarse, wheezy quality that hurts her throat.
  • Scent: Pine forest, earth, woodsmoke, felines, spice, Stormbringer and Soul family
  • Quirks, Gestures, Etc.: Prone to casual contact and physical affection. Laughs almost silently. Tends to stare intensely and follow those she is interested in, such as figures of authority or relatives. Will mirror others' body language if she likes them. Shortness of breath when she exerts herself.
  • General Posture and Body Language: Graceful movements, always keenly aware of where she is stepping. Cheerfully submissive - smiles, wagging tail, eager to please. Posture is usually relaxed, not easily intimidated. Communicates with expressive body language more than words, and tends to watch others for unspoken cues.

Personality

Plucky Girl · Cuddle Bug · Outdoorsy Gal · Good Bad Girl · Ethical Slut

Personality is still developing. Ninian was doted on in her early childhood due to being the runt/sickly, and her parents didn't know if she would survive. (It was expected that she would be small and frail throughout her life, as her mother was, but she surprised her family by growing athletic and strong.) Has an innate worship of her older half-siblings, particularly Florina and Teagan, and is often their silent shadow whenever they visit. Besides her family, whom she adores, Ninian was especially close to her milk-sibling Bel.

Those who know how to read her learn Ninian is confident, bold, playful, easy-going, and mischievous, taking many traits from her father. She is a soft-spoken wolf, though this is not by choice and has more to do with her damaged vocal cords limiting her. Bright and curious; wants to learn everything about everything. A people-pleaser like her mother, Ninian likes to make others smile. She learned from an early age to mimic body language, and as a puppy often followed family members around to copy their every move. As an adult she still prefers her Lupus form to better express herself without words. She is energetic and always looking for a reason to keep moving.

Ninian is optimistic and fun-loving, with a bit of a trickster side as she occasionally delves into mild pranks or lighthearted teasing. She tends to be submissive and ends up with hero worship or crushes on those significantly more dominant than her. She loves attention and especially praise, being the type to flirt and revel in flattery. She is still naive and sheltered and could potentially be manipulated by someone taking advantage of this.

Hunting brings out an intense focus -- it's a game she loves to win, and it's better when there's others to see her and congratulate her. Since she expresses herself in actions more than words, Ninian is very touch-oriented and tends toward casual contact (leaning on others, holding hands, laying her head in their lap, etc). This affection is generally platonic but she will grow to enjoy kissing, cuddling, and more amorous activities, perhaps taking after her uncle.
