Percival Parhelion is the son of Eliza Cormier and Milos Parhelion, born in one of the last litters of Krokar before its untimely disbandment at the end of October in 2018. Raised by his loving parents in an atmosphere of safety, camaraderie, and peace, Percival's early childhood was simple and good. He started learning the basics of fishing before he could shift, often joining his father and Taseko out on the lakes and rivers where he watched and listened as they cast their lines or nets. It was also from Taseko that Percy acquired his interest in spirituality, specifically animism.

On October 25th, 2018, Percival's life was abruptly and irreversibly altered after the village of Fiskebyn, where most of Krokar's members lived, and surrounding Aster's Fields were destroyed by arson. The fire left their village uninhabitable, their supplies ruined, and their animals scattered. But it also brought other forms of tragedy: death and loss. Two pack mates, and several animals, perished in the flames and both his father and his sister, Daisy went missing during the chaos of the fire.

With the disbandment of the only pack he's ever known, Percival was forced to navigate a life of homelessness while also coping with the disappearance of two important members of his family. Miraculously, a few months after their disappearance, Milos and Daisy found their small band in the Saint John's Chokehold and the family was reunited. Though grateful and relieved, however, a notable wedge had been driven between he and his father that Percival never fully acknowledged or addressed, but which helped to spur into action his decision to help found a new pack called New Caledonia.

After the formation of the new pack was complete, the family unit split into two with the majority of the Cormier-Parhelion family leaving for the Old Ironsides Trade Depot in Portland while Percival, Daisy, Inara, Willow, and Toklo departed to their new home in New Caledonia. Percival presently resides there as a High Lord of the Dawn Court and holds the co-ranks of Diplomat III, Piscator II, and Magister I.

Personality:

Obnoxious and mischievous, Luath seems at her happiest when she's being a nuisance to Luperci. An inquisitive creature, she doesn't reliably obey boundaries and will try to get her nose in just about anything a Krokaran is doing. Despite her annoying tendencies, Lua is an affectionate cat and can be a soothing presence when she senses someone is sad or upset.

History:

  • Born to Meerclar in August 2016 alongside four siblings.

He sports a brindled hide with a rich blend of mahogany, brown, and black and bears a white head, dorsal stripe, undercarriage, and legs. Interspersed spots of brindle and roan markings can be found throughout his body and legs.

Loves being around Luperci and actively dislikes being alone, often going out of his way to seek companionship. Pim's favorite spot to be scratched is between the eyes.

History:

  • Following the decimation of her family's homestead at the hands of Kazimir Drachev, Ilse Verhoeven was forced into servitude with only Pim to comfort her.
  • After the resolution of the Austringer Hostility, Ilse took Pim with her when she joined Krokar.
  • In the spring of 2017, Pim fell ill during the spring sickness. Thankfully, he made a full recovery with Ilse's help.
  • An act of arson by a group of loners ignited important areas of Krokar in flames, resulting in Ilse's death and the disbandment of the pack.
  • Pim fled the flames and was later found by Percival Parhelion, who assumed ownership of him after learning of Ilse's death.
