Torin de le Poer is a wolfdog from Airgid Gleann, and a member of the Macha Tribe. He is presently part of Salsola.

He was born alongside his sisters Sionann and Maeve in a small, but growing pack whose influence was spreading with equal speed. After spending a childhood in the rolling glens and fields of Ireland, Torin and his sisters were approached after their first birthday by a foreign relative – a representative of the de le Poer House in Montpellier who informed them of a coming-of-age ritual. Encouraged by their family, the siblings left home, though they fell into division over where to travel. Torin and Sioann decided to seek out their uncle and other relatives in Nova Scotia, while Maeve traveled to her mother's homeland in the north.

The siblings earned passage on a ship and soon found themselves sailing for Portland. They eventually encountered members of Salsola, and returned with them to their Outpost when they decided to remain.

3.2  Relationships

Key Relationships

  • His sisters, Sionann and Maeve. He has always been their protector, and is very defensive of them. When the girls disagreed about where to travel, Torin ultimately sided with and accompanied Sionann overseas because he thought she shouldn't be alone for such a perilous journey.

Positive Relationships

Poor Relationships

  • Super secret rival

4.  Skills

Strengths

  • Language: Speaks English and Gaelic, with limited understanding of Old Norse.
  • Quick-Learner: With a good teacher's guidance, Torin can pick up on things relatively easy. He does not find everything interesting, however, and will actively avoid anything he thinks is "boring".
  • Sailing (Journeyman): Torin ended up learning a lot while crossing the Atlantic, and fancies himself a self-taught wayfinder. He studied further by working Portland's docks.
  • Woodworking (Apprentice): Something of a casual hobby for Torin, who can shape basic pieces and whittle relatively well. He knows rudimentary ways to protect wood against the elements.
  • Horsemanship (Apprentice): Instructed in his youth as to the care of horses. Torin's size limits his choice of horses to only the largest types, and he is not entirely comfortable being on such large animals, and prefers ground-work instead of riding.

Weaknesses

  • Lovestruck: "Love at first sight" happens for Torin a lot. He can become a bit overwhelming with his infatuations, though they never seem to last...
  • Inexperience: Torin left home at a relatively young age. Though he has traveled, he has not stuck with any one skill long enough to truly begin mastering them.
  • Berserk-Button: Sometimes, Torin gets out of control -- foaming at the mouth, wild-dog crazy. This happens only in the most extreme circumstances, though can be exacerbated by alcohol.
  • Indecisive: Making decisions is literally the hardest thing in the world for Torin, who has few strong opinions of his own.

The Associate, Family

Torin was born alongside his sisters to a young family in the Macha Tribe. Their father was a bastard son of a separate branch of their family, but his likeable nature made him popular within the Tribe. When Torin's father left home to travel as part of a coming-of-age journey, he met and fell in love with a fierce woman from the far north, whom he brought home and made a family with.

The triplets spent their youth growing up under the watchful eyes of their relatives. They grew up loved and cared for, largely afflicted by the goings-on in and around the Tribe, content to be the “black sheep” of the family. It was surprising, then, when shortly after their first birthday a foreign relative journeyed to their home and explained an old family tradition – for them to spend at least a year traveling away from home in order to join the family in their ancestral home. Terribly curious about this offer, and encouraged by their parents, the trio decided to leave following the Spring Equinox.

They did not remain together very long, coming to a disagreement about where to go. Sionann wanted to find their uncle, while Maeve wanted to travel to their mother's homeland – when the girls refused to change their minds, Torin was forced to pick a side. He chose Sionann (thinking that the long journey overseas would be more dangerous and thus require his aid) and the group split apart.

After a long and sometimes miserable journey, Torin and Sionann arrived in Portland. They began seeking their relatives, and found them with Salsola.
