Whisper Eternity is a wolfdog and member of Salsola, where she was born and raised.

The daughter of Idrieus and Grievous Eternity, Whisper is a member of an affluent household. She is the youngest of triplets, following Azalea and Lilium. Her early childhood was largely without any incidents of note. When she was young, her father brought an older girl into their house to serve as their au pair – Heulwen Chatham, a former slave from Rabenuhr. In addition to her duties as a housekeeper, the young woman oversaw much of triplets when their parents were working. These days were spent either indoors or within the familiar grounds of the Ruins, the sprawling central hub of Salsola's residential area.

As she grew older, Whisper's fascination with her father's work – or more specifically, the huge, powerful animals he trained, became obvious. When she was old enough to shift, Whisper began spending most of her free time in Salsola's stables. This has carried on into adulthood. Her primary skills focus on the training and care of horses. In addition to this, she is a saddlemaker -- a leatherworker dedicated to the production of horse-tack.

1.  Characteristics

1.1  Appearance

Physical

Whisper is a tall, long-legged animal. She is more wolf than dog, and resembles this, but has notable markings that give away her domestic heritage. Her pelt is mostly a gray agouti all over, and but accented by several warm, tawny sections. Darker (but faint) spots are visible among her fur, which is thick, longer than average, and semi-coarse. Whisper truly resembles a wolf in her face, which is angular, though her eyes and pale face suggest otherwise. Whisper has a rather mean looking resting face, though she is otherwise very expressive. She has sectoral heterochromia, with a single blue segment in her left eye.

Clothing and accessories play a big role within Salsola, but Whisper (like her father) prefers to wear as little as possible. When she does dress up, her style favors bright colors, tassles, and whatever fashion choice is trending among her peers. Her hair is very long, and rarely seen outside of a braid.

Though she currently lacks any permanent scars, it is not uncommon for Whisper to sport a minor cut or abrasion, especially on her hands. While she disguises her scent outside of Salsola, Whisper always carries the smell of horses.

2.  Relationships

2.1  Family

Italics indicates an unknown relationship; they may be offboard or the relation is merely uncertain.
* indicates character does not know this person by name.

  • Parents: Under the guidance of her parents, Whisper was brought up in a very stable home. Though Grievous and Idrieus both played unique roles in her upbringing, their unified front made it clear to Whisper that they were the leaders of their unit. She fell in line with this role of thinking but gravitated towards her father, who encouraged her interest in horses. When family difficulties (namely, her sister's assault and surprise pregnancy) put strain on the unit, Whisper elected to relocate in order to put more distance between herself and the conflict. She remains close with her parents, however. Whisper regularly works with her father and takes lessons from her mother.
  • Siblings: Whisper has two sisters that were born alongside her. In their youth the three girls were thick as thieves, but their personalities and life-choices saw the trio grow more distant as they aged.
    • Azalea was firstborn in their litter, and since then, she has made it a point to be first at everything. This included the completion of her Cueponi ceremony, her decision to move out, and later, her pregnancy and whirlwind mateship. Aware that Azalea suffers from visions, presumably sent from their ancestral gods, Whisper fears their influence in her life may be dangerous. Whisper has tried to council her sister on personal and family matters, believing that both she and their parents have misunderstood one another greatly in the past. When Azalea moved in with her new husband, Whisper had less contact with her – to the point that she has become something of a stranger to her sister's many children.
    • Lilium is Whisper's bookish sister, and the only one in the family with a hyper-fixation to rival her louder sibling. Even if Whisper doesn't always understand what's going on in her sister's stories, she is very impressed by Lilium is able to write as much as she does. She has always provided Lilium with space when it was needed, and for this reason was perhaps less upset when she heard her sister would be spending time in Portland. She has not seen or exchanged word with her for some time.


3.  Personality

Summarized: Alert, Caring, Disputatious, Fiery, Imaginative, Patriotic, Political, Stubborn, Venturesome

A product of her upbringing, Whisper seeks to live her life in a way which not only brings renown to her House, but to The Thistle Kingdom as a whole. Her strong opinions about her place of birth have led to a blind patriotism that leads her to believe local propaganda more fully than others. Even so, at her core what Whisper seeks is harmony – though her direct approach to most things and mean-looking resting face may suggest otherwise. She is a highly creative person, and often looking for ways to expand her knowledge and skills. These are primarily focused around horses. Whisper is, in fact, a horse girl.

  • Motivations: Learning, developing her skills, horses, establishing herself in Salsola
  • Fears:
  • Likes: Horses and horse accessories, racing, exploring
  • Dislikes: Scholarly pursuits, being told to be quiet, losing
Biases
  • Packs – Salsola is the best. New Caledonia has a trade alliance with their Kingdom, and therefore can be expected to uphold their words. She knows that the Del Cenere Gang raises horses, and has met several members of their collective. To her understanding, Casa di Cavalieri should be avoided.
  • Social Class – Whisper knows she is of a royal (if diluted) bloodline, and believes herself to have inherited this superiority. Those who are of similar status are likely to be more equal to her, and therefore more worthy of her time.
Sexuality

Homosexual. Whisper is only interested in ladies.

Capable of reading and writing. Whisper is a relatively fast reader, but has a slow, meticulous hand when it comes to writing.
