Noel Priyantha was born to a coyote sea merchant and a jackal apothecary who found herself swiftly widowed once their ship made port in the Americas. He lost his mother too when he was a few months old. The orphan lived as an urchin around the ports, running with similarly-aged gangs and thieving from merchants -- though Noel never really fit in. If he wasn't bullied by wolves for being a "lesser" species, he was bullied for being a foreigner. Once he reached a self-sufficient age, he traveled on his own, fed up with the bustling life of the ports and determined to find his place in the world.

Inferni was the first place Noel came across with canines similar to himself; he joined in late 2016.

He actively participated in the early 2017 Boreas conflict.

1.  Appearance

1.1  Basics

Essentials


Noel is a young coyjackal with distinctive, vibrant markings. He is tall for his species, if still shorter than most wolves, and though fully grown remains rather lanky and thin from a life of malnutrition. He retains long limbs and surprising muscle under his short coat, however. Large ears offset a slender muzzle not quite as tapered as a coyote's.

In Optime form, Noel's shaggy dark hair sports one lighter streak, often swept to the side though his bangs fall into his face. He has a tendency to hunch, often crossing his arms or wrapping them around his legs. He smells of flowers and the sea.

2.  Personality

Noel is a quiet, moody young hybrid. Cynical and distrustful, he does not make friends easily and spends most of his time by himself. He easily comes across as cold and uncaring, though when he's moved by passion, it's obvious for all that it's a quiet storm. Noel wants to prove himself more than anything, which can turn him into a dauntless and reckless creature, often challenging authority and fighting even against those that care about him. Whether there's something under his protective shell is yet to be seen.

2.1  Details

  • Sociability: Introverted, distrusting
  • Values: Independence, strength
  • Vices: Anger, rebelliousness
  • Likes: Wildflowers, the sea
  • Fears: Failure, weakness
  • Biases: Hates wolves, who were always cruel to him.
  • Sexuality: Heterosexual, very shy.
  • Spirituality: Buddhist, but struggles with this.

3.  Assets

3.1  Skills

  • Stealth: Noel is a naturally quiet canine, light on his feet and observant. He's become adept at sneaking around, whether it's moving quietly through the forest or attempting to blend in with others in a crowd.
  • Thievery: Thanks in part to his stealth, but also because of his speed, Noel is pretty practiced at stealing. He's had to snatch food out from others' noses to survive as a kid.
  • Fishing: Growing up by the water, Noel learned how to fish with a pole and net; it was one of his main means of providing food for himself. He's clumsier at fishing in fast-moving rivers or by hand.

3.2  Residence

  • ???

4.  History

Noel was born on a routine stop at Lisbon to a coyote sea merchant from Honduras and a jackal apothecary from Sri Lanka. His first few months was at sea, the light of his parents' life. However, when their ship made port in the Americas, Noel's father was killed as an unlucky bystander in an gang attack. Noel's mother attempted to raise her son by herself, but ultimately she too, died of suspicious circumstances.

The orphan lived as an urchin around the ports, running with similarly-aged gangs and thieving from merchants -- though Noel never really fit in. If he wasn't bullied by wolves for being a "lesser" species, he was bullied for being a foreigner. He found solace in Reed, another coyote hybrid that had managed to scrape out a life for himself amongst the harbor lowlifes. Before their shaky friendship had time to fully develop, however, the coydog also perished -- he died nameless and alone, not unlike the numerous other murdered Luperci unfortunate enough to live in the slums.

Once he reached a self-sufficient age, Noel traveled on his own, fed up with the bustling life of the ports and determined to find his place in the world.

Inferni was the first place Noel came across with canines similar to himself; he joined in late 2016.
