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.

1.  Characteristics

1.1  Appearance

Summary

Percival is primarily dog and it shows in the roughness of his coat, his v-shaped drop ears, and his long, sickle-shaped tail. He is of average size and build and has fur that is thick, wavy, and quite wiry. Percy has a mustache and beard set at the end of a strong jaw and his brown eyes are typically half-hidden beneath a characteristic scowl that is exaggerated by his dark, thick brows.

Although he prefers his Optime form, Percy does not care to don a lot of clothing. He will often wear a cloak and he may dress for special occasions but he is otherwise more comfortable wearing little else. Perhaps a little unusually, he does not grow a mane; the fur at his head remains short and relatively smooth, with few flyaways, when he shifts.

Percival sports an earthy palette of tans that vary in shade, with paler hues found ventrally and dark shades on the dorsal aspect of his body. His darkest markings are found on his face and ears.

2.  Relationships

2.1  Family Relationships

Family Tree: Cormier, Parhelion

Italics indicates an unknown relationship; they may be offboard or the relation is merely uncertain.

Key Family Relationships

  • Parents: Both of Percy's parents, Eliza Cormier and Milos Parhelion, were attentive and loving while he was growing up. They disciplined him firmly, but fairly, and were patient in their techniques while teaching him and his siblings fishing, reading and writing, animal husbandry, and anything else a good Krokaran needed to know. A bonafide momma's boy, Percy has always had a much better relationship and bond with his mother and, to this day, he will defend his Eliza's good name vehemently. His relationship with his father, in contrast, has been complicated and perhaps a little strained as a result of differing personalities and interests. But he loves his father and wishes he could be a little more like him.
  • Siblings: Growing up, Percival was naturally closest to his littermates, Daisy Parhelion and Cora Cormier. In their youth, Daisy was seen as something of a rival and his relationship with Cora was much less competitive. As he grew and navigated traumas and challenges alongside his sisters, Percy's relationship with Daisy, who he is presently closest with, has strengthened considerably and his bond with Cora has grown distant, particularly after she departed from New Caledonia.
His two older brothers, Logan Cormier and Bramble Parhelion, were figures that Percival looked up to while growing up. Logan's work ethic and outgoing nature were more admirable to Percy than Bramble's wild recklessness, but being older than he was always left him with a feeling of reverence toward them. He appreciated Bramble's skills and courage after Krokar's disbandment, but he has since lost touch with both of his elder brothers since they went to live at the Old Ironsides Trade Depot.
Thistle Cormier is his youngest brother and the sibling that Percy knows the least about. He was born in the spring following Krokar's disbandment and the return of his father and sister, Daisy. At the time, Percival was heavily involved in helping to provide for the family unit while also working through his own troubles and other relationships. When his parents left for Old Ironsides Trade Depot they took Thistle with them and Percy hasn't had the opportunity to develop a relationship with him.
Perhaps the most revered, Willow Cormier is Percy's older half-sister. She had departed from Krokar before he and his sisters were born, so he grew up only hearing stories about her. She returned after the pack's disbandment, however, and he was able to develop a close relationship to her. She and Percy, as with Daisy, too, share a deep bond with the River Goddess (or New Caledonia's equivalent, Nín) and he was able to learn much from her. He has lost touch with her since she departed from New Caledonia.

Luath is a calico cat with characteristic patchwork markings of orange, black, and white. Tabby striping can be seen on the sections of her coat that are orange. She has a round face and large yellow-green eyes. She has a small, compact body.

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.
  • Started living with Ailie Morgan in December 2016.
  • Ailie's daughter, Elle Cormier, assumed responsibility of Luath in the summery of 2017 after Ailie when missing.

  • Stayed in Krokar when Elle left to join Mistfell Vale in the summer of 2018.
  • Fled Fiskebyn near the end of October 2018 when it was set on fire. Fearful and misplaced, Luath chose to remain with the Cormier-Parhelion family following Krokar's disbandment.
  • Luath joined the Cormier-Parhelion family to the St. John's Chokehold where she resided as part of The Shoal until mid-August 2019, when she left with Percival Parhelion to start their new life in New Caledonia

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.

Personality:

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.

  • 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.
