Wither Rose Soul, born Viridian Rose Soul, is currently a member of New Caledonia.

Born on her family's farm at the cusp of a harsh winter, she grew up in the shadow of her three brothers, all of which quickly designated her as the resident punching bag. This led her to learn to fend for herself and rival them in typically 'masculine' roles, quickly finding herself the breadwinner of their family unit — vehemently against her mother's wishes, who wanted her only daughter to be of a certain disposition. Eventually, the turbulent household became too much to bear, and whilst visiting her uncle Jandro in 'Souls, she decided to stay there. Her mother and brothers were none the wiser.

Recently, a tumble down a hillside left her with a twisted ankle, and after hearing talk of a nearby "kingdom," she approached them for aid. After a brief stay, she decided she might as well stick around and make herself useful, even if this whole pack thing is new for her. However, even her new tethers to Caledonia can't stop her wandering spirit.


and I begged of you so many times, forgive me once and for all for all of my lies, to forgive me once and for all for all of my lies

1.2  Personality

Personality

tl;dr: a walking disaster in the making.

Bold and brash, Wither has the capacity to be about as lovely as her namesake. She is horribly self-centered unless she kind of likes you, in which case, she's a fast friend. Nevertheless, she's cripplingly self-assured and eager to prove herself to anything that moves that she's the best huntress in the world, amongst other things. She is likely to fall in and out of love on a whim, as well as partake in substances and the party lifestyle; she is unlikely to grow out of this with age. A dysfunctional upbringing means she has a reliance on these things to keep her going, and secretly, she wants the approval of her peers so she doesn't feel like as much of a screw-up.

Spirituality

Kind of an afterthought; agnostic, more than likely, because religion was never a big thing in her household. Wither has the vague concept of gods, but not specifics about any one deity.

Traits

  • Outlook: Right now, she's flying by the seat of her pants. However, soon to be: life sucks and then you die
  • Sociability: Wither isn't afraid to approach people nor get on their nerves. She either has complete confidence or a severe lack of social awareness with any given interaction.
  • Expression: Exceptionally casual, and she sure isn't gonna grow out of that with age to everyone's dismay
  • Motivations: i wanna be the very best
  • Fears: nuh uh we aren't afraid of anything around here sorry

Interests

  • Likes: Hunting, archery, annoying people, being a nuisance, ALCOHOL & DRUGS
  • Dislikes: Being told what to do >( Uppity people in general grate her nerves.

Biases

  • Packs: Salsola seems a little weird; meeting one of their slaves has put them in the "creepy" category.
  • Species: She takes pride in her coyote blood, but doesn't necessarily see any one species above another.
  • Non-Luperci: Do those... exist??
  • Gender: Unless they are eye candy, most men are pretty useless. This probably stems from the childhood bullying she went through and the fact her brothers were next to useless, so she hasn't been proven wrong yet with this hypothesis.
  • Sexuality: She doesn't have a strong grasp of what is "normal" yet, but presumably would find anything other than heterosexual partnerships a bit strange at first — more than likely, she wouldn't be terribly biased against them, though.
  • Age: Definitely hates old people. Puppies are neat, though! Until they're annoying.

Sexuality

Heterosexual, but with bi-curious leanings as she's still learning what she likes. However, eventually her type will be big strong bois, but not so strong that they can push her around; she is likely to be an assertive lover. Open to flings, once she learns that sex and romance can easily be separated in her mind. However, it's possible that sexual encounters will leave her wondering if there is a romantic connection with her partner, and she is likely to be disappointed. Rinse, lather, repeat.

Substances

Soon to be her biggest vice. Unbeknownst to Wither, she has an addictive personality.

2.  Relationships

2.1  Family

  • Familial Influence: Austral, Soul, Payne
  • Mother: Malika Austral
  • Father: Reaver Payne
  • Siblings: Cinder Lin Austral, Cadence Payne, Abyss Vinn Soul
  • Mate:
  • Children:

Wither saw very little of her merchant father, but she was not overly fond of her mother nor her brothers. Between her mother's unreasonably high expectations and her siblings' constant harassment, no wonder she acted out so terribly in her youth. Still, she does miss them to an extent now that they're not around. Generally speaking, she's much more soft on her uncle.

She's definitely unaware that one of her brothers is now in 'Soulsland, but she probably wouldn't be terribly invested in seeking him out either way.

Extended Family

2.2  Other Relations

Key Relations

  • Fennore and Amon let her stay with them when she first arrived (with Amon now being her sole roommate, much to his dismay). Wither definitely gets on their nerves, and they aren't afraid to tell her; nor is she afraid to let them know they aren't exactly the most pleasant people in the world, either. Still, Wither is in the process of helping Fennore with her archery in exchange for reading/writing lessons.

Notable Relations

  • Calan's cute. She saved him from drowning once. Good times.
  • Ierian Songthorn is just about the only luperci that's been able to put up with her antics (for now, anyway). She's soft on him because he helped nurse her back to health when she took a tumble, the whole reason she ended up staying in Caledonia in the first place.

Cinder

  • Gender: Male
  • Species: Cat
  • Date of Birth: ~ September 2017
  • Key Features: A massive Maine Coon that Wither picked up from... well, somewhere. Probably the laziest cat ever. He was in some cat street gang and was used to struggling to survive, but after Wither picked him up, he's let that part of himself go. Cannot speak a lick of High Speech and is unwilling to learn; but he is a good snuggle buddy when he isn't being an asshole like his namesake (her brother).
  • Description: His coat is mix of browns, creams, and grays; he has dirty olive-green eyes, feathery ears and tail. Big boy.

Caledonians may assume:

  • Seeing Cin lounging around, snoozing in the sunshine
  • Having brambles and sticks stuck in his fur
  • Being generally unhappy and unfriendly towards luperci >:[
