Twila del Morte is the only surviving daughter of Julia and Mendicant Silas del Morte. Her conception was forbidden under Salsolan Law, as servants are not allowed to reproduce—especially not with a ranking member. She had two siblings, Maggie and Abernathy.

Shortly after her birth, the litter was discovered by Calla Valentine, of who's control Julia lived under. Fearing for the pups' lives, she incapacitated Calla and ran off to meet with Silas. Due to unfortunate timing, only Twila was able to be hidden by her father before Calla caught up with her. Silas was forced to watch as Julia was beaten and their other children were taken away. Ultimately, they were killed, and while they grieved, Silas hatched a plan to ensure Twila's safety.

He took the pup to the kingdom's borders, where he concealed her scent before seeking an audience with Elphaba Revlis. The servant passed the child off as an orphaned foundling, and surprisingly, his lies went undetected. Twila was allowed to stay and grow up as a Salsolan, raised by the nursing Julia.

She was given the name del Morte in honor of the man that rescued her, the crown unaware that he was actually her father.


Twila currently resides in Salsola Proper as a member of The Family. She has a deep-seated resentment towards her status as a lowborn, perceiving herself as a nobody and is all too aware of the stain upon her name. Despite this, she has grand ambitions for her future and a will to see them through no matter the cost.

Outside of Salsola, she goes by the name Isla Morgan, the youngest daughter of a sea captain and his merchant wife.

1.  Appearance

1.1  Overview

Basics

Twila has a little bit of a mixed bag when it comes to her appearance. While her size and pelt design come more from her mother's side, her physical appearance comes from her father. Due to her mother's mostly dog heritage, Twila is much on the shorter side, even coming a bit smaller than her mother in lupus form. She has pointed ears, unlike her mother's flopped ears, as well as a much more fluffier tail as opposed to a skinny one. She has quite stunning red hair, matching close to some of the subtle coloring on her pelt.

2.  Personality

2.1  Summary


Twila has been a reckless and headstrong girl ever since she was little. She likes to wander about, and get to places that would otherwise be dangerous to be on her own. Good thing Silas has always been there babysitting, much to her dismay. She can get a bit of a temper when she is told to do something that she doesn't want to do or can't go to certain places. She doesn't like being dragged around by others. Even so, she is attentive and a quick learner. She is well versed in sign language due to her mother being deaf and Silas being unable to speak.
