Solomon Amaranthe is a man slowly descending into madness.

Born in Sapient with Onuban and (unbeknownst to him) Revlis blood, he has had previous stints in his birthpack, his mother's homelands, and Cour des Miracles; however, a violent encounter with Ciprian Tenebriso left him gravely wounded with a traumatic brain injury. His sister, Odalis, assumed he had been killed as she disappeared into the dead of night.

He returned to the Court for some time until around mid-2018, when he felt he was no longer needed there, that it was no longer his home. Solomon has traveled aimlessly in and out of 'Souls lands, desperate to find his captive sibling, all the while suffering from fickle memory and temporary blindness in his right eye on account of his TBI. As time has dragged on, these episodes have grown more severe and frequent. Gradually, his friends and family are drifting further and further from his mind, and he is having trouble remembering who and where he is at any given moment.


oh, lonely mountain, quiet, peaceful, and green / out here in isolation, don't hear no ambulance screams

1.2  Personality

Personality

  • Dutiful, courtly, and proper, Solomon nonetheless utilizes dry, cutting humor and brutal honesty when he makes his points.
  • He has a soft spot for the vulnerable, such as his little sister and shy sitter, and is very kind, protective, and tender toward them.
  • Mature for his age, he has (felt that he) had to bear the burden of "parenting" his siblings. After his mother's fall from grace, he has tried to keep his family on track. He might be perceived as bossy and patronizing as a result.
  • Though he's somewhat dour compared to his peers, Solomon has inherited his mother's charisma to an extent. He is civil and pleasant, confident in his own skin.

Interests

  • Likes: A list of single or few-worded interests: e.g., horses, animal husbandry, leather-working, hunting, howling, running, jumping, playing, begetting a vast number of progeny, etc.
  • Dislikes: A list of single or few-worded dislikes

Traits

  • Outlook: Realistic
  • Sociability: Polite, somewhat introverted as of late
  • Expression: Proper, uncertain, hard to read
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
  • Fears: Fire, forgetting himself or his sister, losing his grip on reality

Biases

  • Packs: All of the packs Solo used to associate with are all gone; he doesn't know/remember much about the new lay of the land.
  • Species: Prefers dogs and wolfdogs; likely to stereotype coyotes as Inferni-brand.
  • Non-Luperci: As with Sapient and his mother's people, Solomon carries a prejudice against non-shifters. This is not a hateful prejudice, but he sees them as impoverished and pities them.
  • Gender: Solomon is extremely respectful toward women — to the point that he seems to favor them over men (or is this the case)?
  • Sexuality: Disapproves of "sleeping around," especially when it results in out-of-wedlock children.

Sexuality

Describe your character's sexuality here -- sexual orientation (e.g., heterosexual) isn't enough of a descriptor, by the way! How about their libido (their desire for sexual activity)? How promiscuous are they? Are they monogamous or polygamous? How do they go about obtaining sexual partners (are they a nervous approacher, or a giant flirt)?

Substances

Not fond of smoking. Will drink socially but doesn't like the lack of control.

Spirituality

Describe your character's spirituality. What do they believe? Do they believe in (a) higher power(s)? Do they perform rituals? What do they believe after death? Do they have a creation myth? Maybe this section is long enough to require more space.

2.  Relationships

2.1  Family

      * denotes he does not know them as family/has not met them
  • Most of Solomon's past relationships with others have fallen victim to his memory problems. As such, many of the less significant figures in his life have become mere impressions and little else; unless faced with the person in question or a significant item or place to jog his memory, specific memories have been lost.
  • Akantha: Though as a youth he cherished his mother, as he grew older and more aware of their "family situation" he fostered some resentment toward her for his lack of a father and the stories/excuses she made for him. Nowadays, she is all but a ghost, and he remembers moreso his ill feelings about her than anything in particular.
  • Odalis: His biggest regret in life. Odalis was his darling baby sister, and he adored her greatly; however, failing to save her from Ciprian is something he can never forget. Many of his memories with her are lost, but that night will always remain.

Notable Past Relations

  • Lucian: Whereas he knows what became of his sister, Solo has no clue where his brother went off to; he misses Lucian, as well, though to a lesser degree. He remembers having somewhat of a rivalry with his brother, but over what, he can't recall.
  • Semini, Tiamat, Lotan: He misses his Krokaran cousins and the simpler times they shared together.
  • Camellia Amaranthe: His babysitter and tutor was a fragile but kindhearted woman. He didn't give her any grief and grew to be as protective of her as he was of Odalis. Misses her gentleness.
  • Ciellen Loreath: His mother's former mentor and friend was of great interest to Solomon — at least his healing pursuits were. He was a little leery of Ciellen's relationship with his mother.
  • Shaamah: A mercenary who escorted and protected Akantha on multiple occasions — and who saved Solomon and his siblings from the fire, which became one of his bigger fears as a result.

3.  History

Solomon Amaranthe was born a member of Sapient. Born to the pack's former councilor, Akantha, he boasts Onuban heritage — as well as a darker bloodline from his unknown father, Bacchus Revlis of Salsola.

The firstborn of his litter alongside Lucian and Odalis, Solomon took on a "father figure" role to his siblings — largely to make up for his biological father's absence and the fickleness of his mother, whom he fosters some resentment toward for her excuses.

Shortly after his birth, Akantha fell into a depression and subsequently out of grace from her lofty position in the pack. Her Mother received word in December of 2016 that Thalia had arranged a marriage for her in Onuba, and that she should return home at once. After many discussions with Semini, Akantha eventually decided to return home to Onuba to fulfill this arrangement, bringing her children with her.

In Onuba, Solomon spent most of his time working with his Grandmothers Andalusians and became quite adept at working with them. He finds a companionship in horses that he does not find with people and can sometimes find it difficult to connect with those outside of his direct family. When he works with the animals, he becomes a different person; assertive, confident — a broad shouldered man that can handle anything in stride. Outside of the arena he can be broody and thoughtful, though no less kind than his sister.

Lucian is one of the only characters in his life that can always get under his skin. Solomon finds it difficult to balance the strong bond that urges him to protect his brother while at the same time also wanting to punch him in the face.

In the summer of 2018, Solomon abandoned Onuba to find his sister in the wake of his mother’s marriage to Isandro Robles and he joined her in Cour des Miracles as a Roturier. He brought his most prized horse along with him for the journey; a silver mare named Bruma.

Ciprian Tenebriso began stalking his sister sometime in the fall, and Solomon protected her as best as he could. In October of 2018, Solomon was struck by tragedy when Ciprian came for Odalis, and in an attempt to rescue her was struck down and ‘killed’. In truth, Ruckus, a sidekick to the kidnapper, struck him so that he would only become unconscious. Odalis does not know this as she saw his limp body from astride her kidnappers horse and thinks him dead.

He lingered at the Court for sometime after until he felt that it was no longer a home, not when his beloved sister was gone; nor did he feel especially needed. He set off with what few belongs he had and his adored mare, but along his aimless, goal-less journey, much of these possessions have been scattered to the wind.
