Valdís, a warrior woman from a far off land, has somewhat recently found her way to 'Souls after having been exiled from her homeland. Stoic and scary, this witchy woman is very in tune with the Earth often speaking to the trees in her mother tongue.

After spending the better part of two years in 'Souls struggling to raise a coyote child, Valdís has vanished off Portland to protect something very dear to her.

1.  Appearance

1.1  Essentials

Basics

Valdís is a tall, strong wolf. Her limbs are thick and sturdy in all forms, though least so in Optime. She has very dark fur with piercing, multi-colored eyes (central heterochromia). Though primarily wolf, her dog heritage can be found in her long, thick fur, and in the tail that curls along her spine like an Icelandic Sheepdog's. She has white tattoos along her spine, arms, left eye, and on her abdomen below her belly button. When in Optime, her hair is usually braided into a Viking-style mohawk with feathers, beads, and bone trinkets braided in it. Her ears have multiple piercings and she has small scars all over her body, usually hidden beneath her thick fur. Valdís rarely wears clothing, only armor or practical pieces (bracers, breastplates, belts for swords, etc)

2.  Personality

  • Aloof, cold, proud, expressionless
    • The very definition of an ice queen, Valdís is an incredibly intimidating person to be around. She gives off this air of superiority, though whether she actually views herself that way has yet to be seen. The way she holds herself, the way she speaks, all tell of a history of power.
    • Valdís does not often show any visible expressions, and if she does it tends to be the exact opposite of pleased. Proud owner of a 'resting bitch face', angry and unavailable is her natural state of being.
  • Warrior, feral, violent, no-nonsense
    • It shows in her body language that Valdís was raised in a very feral and violent setting. She abhors impractical clothing and there isn't a single inch of her that doesn't look ready to fite you. Face in an eternal glower, she has no time for your frivolous idiocy so don't even try it.
  • Spiritual
    • You might not be able to tell at first glance, but on further investigation of her tattoos, it becomes quite clear that she is covered from head to toe in some form of symbolism. Valdís relies heavily on her spiritualism in her daily life. She respects all living things to a zealous degree and will take incredible offense to anyone who doesn't show similar respects. This is gradually dulling as she accustoms herself to different ways of life, but she will always retain her inner disapproval of such actions.
  • Family
    • Once belonging to a large community comprised solely of family, she is incredibly dedicated to her bloodline. They are her sole motivation in life, her reason for being. Since becoming an outcast, she is finding life difficult without her prior 'meaning'. Put simply, she doesn't know her place in life if it isn't with her people.
    • This also drives her away from joining any other community. To do so would be betraying her family, or so it seems to her. If she ever were to break down and join a pack, it would difficult for her to ever really integrate herself into society. She would constantly question herself and her motives and would never be able to fully commit herself to them.

2.1  Traits

Expression

  • Outlook: 'Realist' - pessimist in denial
  • Sociability: She is very dominant, but also introverted. Very aloof.
  • Expression: Dominant
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
    • "Values flexible relationships with romantic partners."
    • "Finds most people to be narrow-minded and inflexible."
    • "Believes those who seek to rule others are, by nature, corrupt."
    • "Will support their family even if it means personal discomfort."
    • "Will take actions to aid others during times of crisis, even if unprofitable to do so."
    • "Feels guilt when he commits a wrongdoing and will seek to right his wrong."
  • Tropes:

Motivations

  • Self-preservation
  • Rozenn

Fears

  • Her remaining child will leave the wood.

Interests

  • Likes: Forests, hunting, battle, children
  • Dislikes: Clingy people, strangers, soft-hearted fools

Biases

  • Packs: She dislikes all packs equally
  • Species: She is unfamiliar with coyotes and jackals, and only mildly acquainted with dogs. They all seem rather foreign to her.
  • Non-Luperci: She respects non-Luperci, though she would change them if they asked. She would not offer.
  • Gender: Men and women are capable of being equal in her eyes. That doesn't mean individuals automatically gain her respect though.
  • Color: Red-furred individuals and those with non-brown/green/gold eyes look exotic to her, and rather attractive.
  • Sexuality: She doesn't care what you do in the bedroom, but believes that it is a child's duty to carry on the family line regardless of preference.
  • Age: The elderly are to be granted patience and respect. Children should be protected and taught at all costs.

Sexuality

Valdís finds herself attracted to only males, but she's more than willing to sleep with a female to fulfill her sexual needs. Valdís has a high libido and has no qualms with sating it in any way possible. She is very comfortable with polygamy and incest (though the concept of incest doesn't make sense to her due to her isolated community - everyone was related). On an off note, Valdís does not link romance with sex. The two are very different. Just because she's attracted to you and will sleep with you doesn't mean she even remotely likes you as a person.

Spirituality

A devoted animist. Valdís sees life in everything and that life should be protected. Her people dedicated their lives to protecting their forest, and she was no different. She believes in spirits and ghosts and partakes in small forms of witchcraft. Though she was not taught to believe in any gods, her people held similar faith in runes as those of the Nordic religions and they use the same symbols for protection, luck, etc.

Substances

Valdís enjoys alcohol, though rarely drinks enough to get very drunk. She thinks smoking (of any sort) smells bad and tends to avoid it.

2.2  Skills

Strengths

  • Archer (Master): Valdís has hunted with a bow and arrow since she first learned how to shift. It is her primary weapon, the weapon she is most confident in. She even knows how to make her own bows and arrows.
  • Hunter (Master): Taught from near infancy, Valdís is an incredible huntress in all forms, though in optime, she relies on her archery skills.
  • Tracker (Journeyman): Goes hand in hand with hunting, though she's not always the greatest at tracking when her target is especially skilled or when the elements are not in her favor.
  • Spear (Journeyman): When the battle calls for close quarters, this is her first pick. She can also hunt large game with this, though it is not a preference. She is not so skilled at using her spear at armed enemies.
  • Hand-to-Hand (Journeyman): Last resort in fighting. Her hand-to-hand combat is very feral with little to no martial arts involved. It is most similar to brawling. When she's unarmed against an armed foe, she is at their mercy.
  • Feral (Master): Been fighting with her sisters and other luperci her age from day one. You learn a few things.
  • Witchcraft (Dabbler): Due to an intense interest, Valdís was permitted the beginnings of an apprenticeship in witchcraft, but when it was found out that she didn't have the talent for it, she was pressured to take up a new calling. She still knows a few spells and potions, but she cannot imbue magic into them.
  • Carving (Dabbler): Valdís can make blades and arrowheads, but when it comes to artistic carving she is beyond a novice. The woman doesn't have a taste for art.
  • Tattooing (Journeyman): As a part of her culture, it was important she learn the basics of tattooing. She is unfamiliar with alternative techniques or styles, but with her own peoples' style of tattoo, she is quite competent.

Weaknesses

  • Swimming: Valdís cannot swim to save her life. She can barely float.
  • Overprotective: Incredibly overprotective of her children and family, she will hold them back or sacrifice herself for them when no sacrifice was needed.
  • Communication: While the language barrier occasionally becomes a problem, her major communication problem is actually talking to people and trying to explain herself when they don't understand the first time around.

3.2  Relationships

Key Relationships

  • Rozenn A young, orphaned coyote that Valdís stumbled across and adopted as her own. Unfamiliar with coyotes, Valdís was startled by her new daughter's small size and was concerned that the child may not survive. Rozenn instead grew into a hot-headed spitfire with the heart of an artist. Mother and daughter were constantly butting heads until Rozenn decided to venture out on her own and join a cartel of coyotes. Though upset, Valdís has decided to respect her adult daughter's wishes and has left the area.
  • Everett Moreau What started out as a chance encounter gone sour, Valdís agreed to take on Everett as a pupil. In exchange, he was to help her watch over her child. Their relationship morphed from student and teacher to co-parents struggling to watch their wild child. Now that he's left and Rozenn has become an independent woman, Valdís took it upon herself to follow him though she doesn't know why.

Positive Relationships

  • Brandr,Egil Though biologically her half-brothers, Valdís raised the two as her own sons and was proud to watch them grow into strong young men. She does not know of Egil's passing.
  • Characters is also worth knowing and here's why you should know lalala

Poor Relationships

  • Avinalora Phoenix They exchanged bitter snark and it wasn't pretty.
  • Gerulf Voznik Her child ran off and was found in the jaws of this man who originally thought her prey. It also wasn't pretty.
  • Diego del Bosque Participating in Inferni trickery, Diego and Valdís met when Diego and his maned wolf companion decided to throw eggs at her and her child. Valdís screamed at them for terrifying her child into a coughing fit.
  • Inca Inca was bashed over the head with the butt end of a spear when he was found snooping through Valdís's things and scared her kid. Valdís took pity on him because he was so young and took him to camp until he could leave again, but she doesn't trust him as far as she can throw him.
  • Keylo Damaichu First, he barrelled into her, disrespected her, and then ran. She absolutely despises him and his antics. 10/10 would kill if seen again.
  • Derek Winter He caught her child in a poorly placed trap as a prank. She didn't kill him only because he was the only one who could get her down at the time.
