Varcen Quilda is a wolfdog currently residing within New Caledonia.

The youngest son of Nimrodel Quilda (née Míre) and Isen Quilda, he was allowed many freedoms in his youth, including the ability to pursue whatsoever his heart might desire, which was apparently a love for all things scholarly. A foreboding and even severe young man, it's a rarity that his face ever breaks into something that resembles warmth; some of this is due in no small part to his experiences during the war, wherein he lost much of his family.

Presently he is working on rebuilding not only his life, but his so-called 'library', and is considering which co-ranks he might excel at.

1.  Appearance

1.1  Basics

Physical

  • General Description:
Tall by most luperci standards, Varcen is slight in build and somewhat effeminate in that he appears—at first glance—to be fairly dainty. Upon closer inspection, however, one might discover that beneath his well-fitted clothing, he does actually possess some lithe muscle.
A true albino, his fur is the purest white (and immaculately clean), and his eyes are a somber, striking shade of red. He suffers from the most common of the side effects, most notably an aversion to harsh sunlight and a tendency toward nystagmus (rapid involuntary eye movement). Due to this, he is most often found at dawn and dusk, with his most active hours being nighttime.
  • Optime Hair: Non-existent, he cuts it so that it's even with the rest of his fur.
  • Humanization:
High, makes extensive use of tools, clothing, et al.
  • Build, Size, and Forms:
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Aenean et tellus tortor. Maecenas vehicula augue a lacus mattis euismod. Vestibulum aliquam aliquet justo, id volutpat elit rhoncus sed. Integer vehicula, augue non euismod volutpat, justo dui sagittis leo, at ornare nunc nibh vitae orci.
It's worth noting that she is somewhat flat-chested, giving her hint of overall androgyny.
  • Lupus: 100 lbs (45.35 kg) ↔ 40 in (101.5 cm)

1.2  Miscellaneous

Interaction

  • Speech: Moderate in volume with a faint accent of indeterminable origin, perhaps English.
  • Scent: Old books, bone char ink, and New Caledonia.
  • Physical Expression and Quirks:
    • Varcen is a busybody, constantly smoothing his robes, and seems to be constantly doing something.

Adornments

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Aenean et tellus tortor. Maecenas vehicula augue a lacus mattis euismod. Vestibulum aliquam aliquet justo, id volutpat elit rhoncus sed. Integer vehicula, augue non euismod volutpat, justo dui sagittis leo, at ornare nunc nibh vitae orci.

Garments:

  • Prefers cloth garments over fur and leather, close-fitting/well-tailored items with high collars, muted colors (black, brown, grey).

Accessories:

  • Rarely seen without a diamond-shaped red pendant on a leather cord.

2.  Personality

2.1  Summary

Put simply, Varcen is an insufferable know-it-all with very little patience for others; the only exception might (and it’s a very big might) be promising youths with a hunger for knowledge, and even then, he would present himself as the reluctant teacher. His seemingly endless ire comes in the form of snide remarks, extensive posturing wherein he can display his natural intelligence, and boundless criticisms of… well, everyone.

Despite (or perhaps in spite of) his disreputable behavior, Varcen is a very strong believer in the idea that knowledge — in all its forms — belongs to everyone, and is somewhat obsessed with record-keeping, menial 'administrative' duties, cataloguing his packs history, and the upkeep of books. To this end, anyone who endeavors to help him might see his demeanor thaw, if only slightly.

The sole exception to his sullen behavior is his beloved bird, a female barn owl who he lovingly refers to as dear and love.

2.2  Traits

  • Expression: Severe and even sinister, Varcen rarely if ever expresses himself in a way that would encourage interaction.
  • Sociability: Introverted, actively discourages conversation.
  • Alignment: Lawful Evil
    • "Believes in using society and its laws to benefit themselves or their family."
    • "Will use the law to destroy their enemies."
    • "Greatly respects laws and strict order."
    • "Will keep his word if he gives it and will never lie."

2.3  Ideals

Motivations

  • Himself, and to that end, his pack.
  • The pursuit and preservation of knowledge at all costs.

Fears

  • The loss of his mind or memories.
  • The destruction of his life's work, whether through conflict or natural disaster (flood, mold, etc.).

Values

  • More than knowledge, more than himself, Varcen values law and order above all else.
  • Anything erudite in nature: scholarly pursuits, education, and historical preservation.

Interests

  • Likes: Working, reading, writing, tidying, books, and birds.
  • Dislikes: Nosiness, being bothered with things he feels are 'beneath him', anyone touching his things, most conversations.

Biases

  • All things being equal, Varcen feels that non-luperci are uncultured and primitive, and loathes their apparent refusal to adapt.

Sexuality

  • Asexual, Varcen is by-and-large uninterested in sex, reproduction, and romance, as he feels they're trivialities that get in the way.

Substances

  • A solitary drinker, he prefers wine to the exclusion of all else.

Spiritually

  • Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.
  • Phasellus lectus ipsum, convallis eu viverra id, convallis sollicitudin orci.

3.  Family

3.1  Quilda

  • Mother: Nimrodel Quilda (née Míre)
  • Father: Isen Quilda
  • Siblings:
    • Elder: Eldamar Quilda and Nindari Quilda
  • Though not terribly close with his father, Isen Quilda due to differing beliefs and ideals regarding concepts such as chivalry, duty, and honor, Varcen was nonetheless very close with his mother, Nimrodel, who (through no fault of her own) was perhaps a touch overindulgent when it came to his scholastic pursuits. Her death during the war struck him particularly hard, to the point that mentioning her would be ill-advised.
    • Following the death of his wife and two children, Varcen's father has become something of the 'town drunk', a source of constant embarrassment and frustration for Varcen.
  • His relationship with his elder brother Eldamar — and to some extent, his sister Nindari — was fraught with conflict, with Eldamar believing staunchly that it was one's duty to blindly follow their leader's duty, and Varcen dismissing it as asinine and foolhardy.

4.  Skills and Inventory

4.1  Abilities

Religion

Education and Learning: Both of her parents, Antioch de le Poer and Versace Inferni, as well as many former Infernians were devout believers, and Adina modeled herself after them.

  • Fairly well-versed in both the Old and New Testaments of the Catholic Holy Bible, but one might notice that she is very 'choosy' about which lines she adheres to and those she ignores. In this way, it would become obvious to an exceptionally well-versed person that she is using the word of God to push her own beliefs.
  • Aware of and has some personal experience with both osteomancy and capnomancy, and sometimes combines (as well as manipulating) them with her own fire-and-brimstone views.

Medicine

Education and Learning: Much of this is self-taught through experimentation, and therefore very hit-or-miss.

  • When resources are available, she is able to make medicinal teas to help aid in common, relatively minor upsets such as stomach issues and headaches.
  • If necessary she can stop the bleeding of a minor-to-moderate wound enough to get someone proper care, typically through the use of a tourniquet or packing.
  • A more than capable midwife, even if there are minor complications. Something extensive such as a Cesarean is far beyond her skills and would likely result in the death of both mother and child(ren).

Combat

Education and Learning: Her education in this area was largely at the instruction of her father.

  • Though nowhere near as skilled as her brothers, Adina prefers a more feral-centric style of fighting, wherein she can make use of her bulk.
  • When able to do so, she can hunt small game with a bow.

Miscellaneous

Education and Learning: General but noteworthy skills that bear mentioning.

  • Nullam rhoncus est condimentum ante fermentum, nec rhoncus augue cursus. Aenean cursus orci quis volutpat vehicula. Vivamus eu tempus felis, sed consectetur mi. Nulla facilisi. Proin vel suscipit neque. Nunc ac consectetur libero.
  • Phasellus dapibus risus sed felis sagittis dignissim. Etiam et dui sit amet enim fermentum mattis sit amet nec tellus.

4.2  Trade

  • Limited to pack members and close friends only, Adina doesn’t trade so much as gift items – simple, common things that are relatively easy to find – with the expectation that she will be given something in return; for her it’s a way of showing she cares.
