Tessa Raskin


by Nat

Tessa is a border collie/coyote mix who is unafraid of getting her hands dirty. She grew up as a member of a pack in Portland where the Syndicate originated from. After hearing about some ex-packmates' aggressive behavior in Halifax, she and her friend, Darius Pierson, traveled to Nova Scotia to see what was happening, leading to them joining Casa di Cavalieri. She is a fisher and master of the seas. Newly healed scars line her face and an old injury has taken two of her fingertips, marking her as someone not to be messed with.

1.  History

Tessa was introduced to Casa di Cavalieri during the Syndicate Revenge Conflict in 2017. Originally from a pack in Portland, she and Darius Pierson were sent from their home as scouts to investigate rumors of ex-members forming a gang in Halifax that called themselves the Syndicate. Thanks to Darius' love for adventure and flair, they joined the Syndicate under the lie of having abandoned their old home. During this infiltration, the Syndicate attacked Casa di Cavalieri, and, seeing the opportunity Tessa and Darius, switched sides to put an end to the gang's behavior.

After helping Casa end the Syndicate, the pair got to know the Cavaliers while healing from the battle. Due to the pack's strength and eagerness to help those in need, the pair decided it was time for a new adventure and joined Casa.

Within Casa, she has earned a job as a Fisher and Sailor. Being a little rough around the edges, she prefers to keep to herself, spending most of her time near the water.

2.  Personality

  • Rough Around the Edges: Tessa is not exactly the most popular Cavalier. She has a scowl on her face most of the time and can come across as rather mean looking thanks to her glare and scars. Once you get past the tough exterior, she can be a good honest friend.
  • Curt: She is not one for lengthy conversations and sharing details about her life. In conversation, she is to the point and brutally honest, not wanting to waste time by beating around the bush. This may hurt the feelings of those who value kindness over truth.
  • Intelligent: Beneath her rough persona, Tessa is a highly intelligent woman. She has a good amount of experience in life and is unafraid to share her thoughts if you ask. She is careful and mindful in her internal thoughts, and may be a surprising place for good advice.

3.  Skills

  • Fishing: The water is Tessa's life long love, having spent her days by the water since a young age. As an adult, she quickly found her love for catching fish and various other sea creatures, and helped her pack to thrive. She knows how to fish using a trident to spear, throwing nets, and making use of traps.
  • Sailing: To make her job fishing easier, she learned how to manage a small row boat or a canoe quickly, however, since joining Casa di Cavalieri, she has learned to operate the sails of the pack ship, the Avalon.
  • Weapon: Tessa uses her fishing trident or nets when she needs to defend herself.

4.  Relationships

  • Family: None currently, can be discussed.
  • Friends:

Darius Pierson: Protected him from all who teased him throughout his youth; he was her travel companion sent with her to be the more personable of the duo when investigating the Syndicate.

  • Acquaintances:

All of Casa di Cavalieri.

  • Enemies:

None explicitly made IC yet, though she has likely hurt the feelings of a few Cavaliers during her membership.
