1.  Appearance

Nyx is a scarred, lean, petite Wolfdog with milky white fur, purple eyes, and caramel markings. She is quite tiny when assuming her Lupus form, being the size of an adolescent Wolf. When in her Optime form, she is thin and overall small, coming in at a solid 5'. She has very little body mass, but over time has developed small muscles from training hard.

As a result of an early attack on her family, Nyx was left with multiple scars that span from her face, abdomen, arms, and legs. Since she was always on the run after the attack, Nyx's right foreleg never healed properly and she has been left with a lame leg. The leg is usable, however, it is painful when weight is applied to it.

Accessories

  • A red scarf made of thick durable material, given to her by an old friend.

Clothes

  • Nyx often wears a long or short sleeved tunic that comes down to her upper thighs, or a Japanese kimono shortened and modified for combat readiness. The only clothes she wears allow for full range of movement, therefore she never wears long pants or dresses, though will sometimes wear long socks or leg warmers depending on the temperature outside.

  • Distrustful of Strangers: Due to a fatal attack on her family when she was just six months of age, Nyx is wary of strangers.
    • Anxious: The attack left her uncomfortable, looking over her shoulder from time to time, and uneasy.
    • Depression: Due to the loss of her birth pack, Nyx feels bouts of loneliness and sadness.
  • Stutter: Nyx's stutter developed early from her anxiety, and because of this, she prefers not to speak to strangers due to her embarrassing choppy speech.
  • Playful: Despite falling into a depressive state sometimes, Nyx likes to have fun and play often.
  • Naive: Though the young female has seen many battles, she has trouble grasping many things regarding social life and intimacy, such as personal boundaries or romance, because of her early feral upbringing.

  • Submissive
  • Anxious

6.  History

Pack History

Anathema (?? YYYY - Mar 2018)
Rank Malphas (Sub-leader), Purson (Military specialist)
Specialization Venator (Skilled hunter)

Nyx was born in Alaska in a litter of five, however at only a few days old, a forest fire decimated her home, and her parents were forced to move, quickly. They managed to establish a new territory for themselves over the border into Canada, however, at a young age, Nyx's life was overturned once again. A hostile pack of Luperci invaded her home, turning her peaceful world upside down. One of them attacked her, and after having sustained many injuries, she managed to escape as her mother attacked the invading Luperci. Nyx hid and watched as her family was destroyed before her eyes. Her parents fell, never to get up again, and her poor siblings were torn to pieces in front of her.

Afterwards, Nyx managed to drag herself away to a stream and drink, regaining some strength and trying to lick the blood from her fur. That night Nyx returned to the scene to mourn the loss of her beloved family. As she laid down for the night, a rustling amid the leaves reminded her that she was not alone, and forced her to run away. Nyx barely managed to fend for herself from that point onward. She mostly avoided others and was able to hunt small prey like her parents taught her. She was something of a natural in that department. The she-wolf developed anxiety and depression over the next couple weeks, and the condition of her wounds never truly improved. The deep scratches on her right foreleg were never able to fully heal, leaving it painful for her to use.

Nyx had lived alone for a short time, but eventually came upon Nova Scotia, and within it, Anathema. Since then, Nyx has lived in Anathema where she has acquired an adoptive family and has made new friends that are very dear to her heart. Nyx worked her way through the Warrior tiers in Anathema, determined to make a comeback. Currently, she holds the highest position in the Warrior tier rank system, Purson.
