By Remarin

Teagan Stryder is the daughter of Lyris Stryder and Luca Knight. She was born in August 10, 2015 alongside her sister, Indi Knight. She was mentored by Sylvie Agnès up until she became of proper age.

Before she was even two years old, Teagan had two close encounters with death; once when she was six months [1] when she’d become the target of vengeance, and once more when she was a year old during an extended trip around Nova Scotia after she threatened a loner in defense of her sister’s person [2] [M].

She currently resides in Casa di Cavalieri as a Bracciante Prima.

1.  Appearance

1.1  Basics

Essentials

  • Species: While Teagan's physique is more inclined to be wolf-like, the dog blood of her lineage appears slightly more prominent than in her sister. Her fur, facial features, and markings are vaguely doggish while the build of her body is more similar to that of a wolf.
  • Fur: Teagan's fur is thick and noticeably longer in her four-legged forms (seen particularly around her neck, haunches, and tail). It is best-suited for enduring the long winters. This is the most obviously dog-like feature, being in likeness to the rough collie in her ancestry.
    • Optime Hair: Thick and silky soft, reaches mid-shoulder and is typically put up in a ponytail with a few stubborn bangs framing her face.
  • Facial Features: In retrospect, Teagan's face is built to resemble clearly that of a wolf, but the folded tip of her right ear is giveaways to her dog lineage. Her cheeks are not as fluffy as a pure-bred wolf’s either.
  • Build and Size: Teagan inherited the stocky build of her father rather than the willowy one of her mother. She stands on the taller side, and is lean and muscular. Her body type allows for easy muscle gain, and geared more towards strength rather than speed.
    • Lupus: Large due to her ancestry and with sinewy muscles. Her longer fur type will grow in thickly around her neck, flanks, and her tail.
    • Optime: Like her parents, Teagan stands on the tall side of the spectrum. As a growing teen, she is average in height, though slightly bulkier in build due to a heavier skeleton. She is flat at all angles, and sports a skinny, adolescent body. As she grows older, however, she will develop soft, womanly curves, but will still have a lean, muscular, athletic look to her.
  • Humanization: Moderate. While Teagan is very interested in armor and stories of knights, she sees the humanized accessories as a luxury rather than a must. Even when dressed, she shows little interest in fancy, eye-catching items. She prefers comfort and practicality over attention and vanity.

Coloration

  • Fur:
    • Primarily Chamois (#edd8b3)
  • Markings:
    • Her muzzle, underbelly, socks, and tail tip are dipped in Linen (#f2f0ea)
    • Mine Shaft (#323232) colors her saddle which bleeds down onto the top of her tail, ending half-way down. Her mask and ears are also this color.
  • Eyes: Pale Canary(#ffff9d)
  • Optime Hair: Will be Mine Shaft (#323232), with highlights of Chamois (#edd8b3)
  • Nose, Claws, Paw Pads: Tundora (#464646)

Palette

Images

2.  Personality


Actions speak louder than words; Socially distant; Abrasive; Prideful; Confident; Tomboy; Hard outside, soft inside; Justice-seeker

She is not the most friendly or social of individuals, and often prefers to keep to herself. Because of her lack of outward friendliness, she might be regarded as cold or unsocial. Teagan’s not much for casual conversation unless the mood suits her—or if forced to by the situation—and, so, words that fall from her tongue are often spoken in a tone that is abrasive, brash, or confident. Teagan is very prideful, a trait that is often her downfall, as she is not one to easily admit she’s wrong or change her mind when it’s made up. She is a creature that is very confident in herself and her actions (not to point of arrogance though), and is often noted for her bravery. She is a go-getter and someone to be proactive about things than let something just fall into her lap.

Overall, she is a tomboy that is not afraid to get her paws dirty. She loves to fight and roughhouse, and turns up her nose at girly or “soft” things. She doesn’t like to appear weak, and will often cover these feelings or signs with aggression, faux confidence, or indifference. As a result, she is not very touchy-feely or a gal in-tune with her more emotional side. She may become overwhelmed if smothered with those that are the opposite of this, and may—unintentionally—snap or become aggressive in an attempt to maintain her “personal bubble.” Teagan is, however, compassionate of things she cares for. She is the type to find other ways to show that she cares without being outright with it though. As well, Teagan is highly protective of those she deems a friend or ally, and will go out of her way to make sure that they are happy—at any cost.

In spite of this, she has high morals, which often keeps her from doing anything too dark. As such, Teagan is someone who thrives on justice, and may be hard-pressed to let something just slide by unpunished. Teagan is not a Luperci known for her tack either. She is blunt and judgmental of others, and is typically not one to honey her words. She believes in a tough skin, as it is the precedence she puts for herself.

2.1  Ideals

Interests

  • Likes: Family (specifically Indi), Adventure, Challenges, Fighting and wrestling, Birds, Horses, Fall, Meat
  • Dislikes: Dishonesty and cheaters, Laziness, Bullies, Shady individuals, Weakness

Traits

  • Outlook: Equally optimistic/pessimistic
  • Sociability: Introverted, dominant
  • Expression: Dominant
  • Alignment: Between Neutral Good and Chaotic Good

Motivations

  • Family, specifically, her sister, Indi
  • Pride
  • Curiosity

Fears

  • Failure: Teagan’s greatest fear that can act as motivation, but can also extremely hamper her abilities. Though not seen particularly in simple tasks, Teagan takes great pride in giving her all at something, and would be crushed if it all came down in shambles around her. She is afraid that her lack of action or her inability to do something may cost her something more dear to her than her pride alone. She scorns the thought of being a burden to others, and is deathly afraid of losing those closest to her.
    • In the wake of failing something, Teagan will often act out violently and will close off from others in order to hide her depression and “weaker” side.
  • Loosing loved ones: Typically tied in with the previous fear, Teagan is afraid of losing those that are particularly close to her. She does not open herself up easily, and, so, those that find themselves close to her heart are individuals that Teagan would gladly kill for. In her panic and distress, Teagan’s actions may become rash, and are usually unintentionally violent. Death of someone precious to Teagan could lead the wolfdog to do many things, none of which are good for her health or that of others.

Biases

  • Packs: Hates Anathema
  • Species: None
  • Non-Luperci: Should not be hated as much as they are
  • Gender: None
  • Color: None
  • Sexuality: None
  • Age: Elders are to be respected

Sexuality

Teagan is too young to delve into this, but, she will likely grow to be heterosexual, with a preference towards strong, healthy males with a personality that can go toe-to-toe with her own. She will generally be asexual though, and, if teased about her affections, would vehemently deny any attraction to another (but would be embarrassed all the while).

Substances

Teagan isn’t particularly fond of alcoholic drinks due to the fact that they make her feel vulnerable and more likely to reveal things she would have otherwise kept behind tight lips. She also doesn’t like the feeling of being hungover.

Spirituality

She believes in a higher being due to her upbringing, but rarely does she entertain the thought of religion.

3.  Relationships

* Does not know this person by name.

3.1  Family: Stryder, Knight

3.2  Relations

Key Relations

  • Indi Knight is her littermate, sister, and her best friend. Teagan’s softer side is seen particularly when around Indi. The koi-colored wolfdog is the only Luperci that Teagan feels she can let her hard, outers shell down around, and places complete trust and secrecy in to. Teagan is highly protective of Indi in this regard, and is not above decking someone who might hurt her. Paired with Indi, the two sisters are a terror for anyone [3].
  • Lyris Stryder and Luca Knight are her parents. She thinks the world of them and idolizes them. They are strong, courageous, and beyond compare. They are her greatest role models and she highly respects them. She is somewhat fearful of her mother because of how powerful and fearless she carries herself. Of her father, she is greatly fond of, viewing him to be the more compassionate one of the two.

Positive Relations

  • Skoll Haskel, also known as “Mister Hero” or “That Jerk”, is an admirable Courtier that Teagan quietly idolizes. He annoys her and she is sure to let him know it. Though she won’t ever admit it, she believes herself in debt to him for saving her life from a cougar [4].
