Art by WXaman

The firstborn son of Esmeralda Collins and her lover at the time Nero. Trident knows little to nothing (nor cares to know) about his paternal lineage; for his biological father was notably absent during his youth, abandoning his fledgling family shortly after Trident began shifting. Filling the gap left by his father, it was Cahan Collins-Rana who took up the mantle of being a paternal figure instead and was a rock in the young male's life, alongside that of his maternal family.

Upon shifting, he began learning and refining his skills under his mother's instruction. Accompanying her on her trips he began to understand the mechanisms of trading and the art of various combat forms to which he dabbled in, later leaning towards focusing on swordsmanship. Eventually, with several trades and confidence under his belt, the Collins male began longer and longer trade trips, spending many weeks out trading to contribute to the pack. Being in a different place each night, meeting different faces - it was a lifestyle he flourished within. It was during such travels that he encountered Cleome Valentine, who for some reason (and despite the circumstances) became a near instant friend to him, the two arrange a meeting spot upon their second chance encounter.

Unknowingly, he spent the last few weeks he'd have left to spend with his family away and trading, realizing all too late that his time with them wasn't to be taken for granted. Upon the death of his grandfather, his mother and grandmother went missing when transporting the body. They were never found, despite how he himself and many members of Midnight Shores searched relentlessly for them. Trident remained a member of his birth pack, Midnight Shores until it disbanded in December 2016 by Skana Creo, after it became apparent that his family was lost and unlikely to return soon. Orphaned and without a pack, he tagged along with Skana Creo and her family, seeking to join Sapient.

In April 2017, as the rain continued to fall and sickness started to set it, the Collins male made a mistake: he got drunk with Nieve Ortega and Sloan Ortega, the leader of Sapients daughters, the group drinking until they passed out, waking piled in a bed, with Nivosus raging at them. Banished from Sapient, without the opportunity to explain himself and that nothing had happened, he grabbed his things and left to find Cleome Valentine.

Though a one night stand, intended as an act of twisted revenge, Trident is the father of: Alcor, Saiph, Nekkar, Taygeta and Bellatrix.


Currently Trident is a member of Salsola ranked part of The Family. An aspiring swordsman, he fancies himself a noble knight, holder of the co-rank Interrogante.


In the 2017 'Souls Yearbook, Trident was awarded the superlative "Best Frenemies" (with Elphaba Revlis).

4.  Skills

4.1  Abilities

Sociopolitical

  • Education and Learning: Initially instructed in this area by his family; in particular his mother and grand mother, Trident now has taken it upon himself to expand his knowledge and capabilities within these fields.
  • Reading and Writing (Apprentice): Having began learning to read and later write upon shifting, Trident is adept in English and can read and write basic literature competently, with a reasonable grasp of word variation and a fundamental grasp on grammar.
  • Trader (Journeyman): Accompanying Esme upon her travels and for trades, Trident is an excellent trader and confident in the back and forth of bargaining. Stubborn to a fault and a reckless streak, he will push for the best deal he can get.
  • Body Language (Journeyman): From his time spent trading, Trident has learned to read body language, best picking up ques from visual aspects such as another's posture and their gestures; i.e with hands and arms.
  • His handwriting is messy, inconsistent and only really eligible to himself... and even then he isn't always sure what he wrote down.
  • In his youth, Trident is still learning to read others and atmospheres, resulting in him making an incorrect assumption and pushing a trade too far. This often results in him settling for a lesser trade or losing out altogether.
  • Overall Trident is less adept at reading vocal cues from speech, tone of voice, etc and can often overlook such cues, resulting him misreading an individual.

Survival

  • Education and Learning: A combination of natural instinct and education from his family, Trident has began to flourish in the more feral pursuits.
  • Hunting (Apprentice): Trident is most adept at catching mid-sized prey
  • Tracking (Apprentice): Capable of following scents competently, with a solid scent memory recall. He can also track through the brush via visual clues such as prints, broken pathways through foliage, etc where a scent trail isn't enough or is absent.
  • Trapping (Dabbler): Whilst not something he has focused on, he has played around with small traps such as pitfalls to make up for his inability to catch smaller prey.
  • Scouting (Dabbler): Tied in with tracking, Trident has some experience upon pack borders and keeping watch in neutral lands.
  • Smaller prey has often proven too nimble for him. On the flip side, larger prey often possess too much power for him to take down or is likely to cause him significant harm.
  • Environmental aspects greatly effect his capabilities; weather, type of landscape, his familiarity with the area, etc.
  • Trident has not had any formal training and can only make the crudest of traps that lack finesse.
  • Due to lack of actual encounters or conflicts when scouting, he's basically just stared into the empty unknown for hours and as of yet has not been tested in this area.

Combat

  • Education and Learning: Primarily instructed by Esme and Ares.
  • Swordsmanship (Apprentice): He has began learning basic stances, parries and combination; typically to counter other swords or an unarmed luperci.
  • Hand-to-hand (Dabbler): Esme has instructed him with the basics to disarm an opponent so that he can either escape, call for backup or arm himself.
  • Knife Throwing (Dabbler): Whilst undecided on his combat form, he was shown the basics by his mother and given a few lessons.
  • All of his experience has been gathered in controlled sparring environments, against a limited range of other combat forms.
  • He is not trained to fight purely unarmed; this skill is the basics to allow for him to buy time or open up other options.
  • Lacking interest in knives he doesn't actively practice and has rarely used the skill since his lessons stopped.
