Yara Desmaraise was born into a small wolf pack/town in Ontario, the eldest of seven siblings. Dutiful to the point of rigidity, Yara was the sole child who remained with her parents after the rest dispersed. Her father acted as an informal healer for the town and surrounding area, and when Yara began showing interest in healing, she and her father worked together to support the family by conducting home visits in exchange for food and whatever else could be traded. Yara amassed a fair amount of knowledge in her two years working for her father, mostly about treating illness and midwifery. From her mother she learned feral pursuits such as hunting and general survival.

When she realized there just wasn’t enough illness/injury/childbirth in her town to occupy both she and her father, Yara struck out on her own at her parents’ encouragement. She joined a group of traders bent on Nova Scotia and arrived there in early 2019. In her first couple of days in the area she met a rather odd-looking gentleman and set herself to the task of worming her way into his heart.

Yara is currently a loner.

1.  Appearance

1.1  Essentials

Basics

Yara looks like an average wolf. She is slender but scruffy, and largely unfeminine. In all forms she has long legs and characteristic spiky, ruffled fur. Her athleticism is understated in all but her Optime form, which sees her fur shorten and allows her muscles to feature a little more prominently. She doesn’t carry much excess fat and has few curves to speak of.

2.  Personality

  • Pragmatic: A basic summary in paragraphs or bullet points.
  • Brusque: Or business-like. Particularly when she’s at work.
  • Social: Yara likes to gossip and takes great pleasure in “adopting” introverts.
  • Self-absorbed: Yara can get caught up in others’ opinion of her. She really just ‘’has’’ to be ‘’liked’’, by absolutely ‘’everyone’’.
  • Ignorant: Having lived in the same place with the same people for most of her life, Yara is fairly naïve in some ways. When confronted with difference in sexuality, lifestyle, or culture, she tends to romanticize it and regard it as alternative to her own way of life, which is the norm. That said, she will be exceedingly curious about these differences and seek to try them out for herself, so there’s usually no hostility involved on her part.

Sexuality

Yara is only interested in romance and sex with males, but she wouldn’t be opposed to a one-night fling with a female just for the experience. Sex is one of the few subjects that actually make Yara a little shy. She has often been flirtatious to the point of someone mistaking it for an invitation, at which time she awkwardly backs out. She will be strictly monogamous if she’s in a relationship, unless she has her partner’s permission to experiment.

Spirituality

Though she doesn’t have a practice of any kind, Yara believes in the “spirit” in everything. She therefore sees everything living and nonliving as a subject and honors them.

Yara loves to drink for the fun and social aspect of it, but not to smoke. She knows her limits.
