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.

Now, with the disbandment of the only pack he's ever known, Percival is forced to navigate a life of homelessness while also coping with the disappearance of two important members of his family. He is currently living in the Saint John's Chokehold with what remains of his family.

Luath (cat)

template by Mandi

  • NPC Type: Minor NPC
  • Species: Cat
  • Gender: Queen
  • Date of Birth: 2016
  • Onboard?: Yes
  • Appearance: 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.
    • Competent in High Speech; she aims to speak it fluently some day.
  • 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.
  • Latching onto the mischievous Elle, Luath starts to spend more time with her.
  • 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.
