The Aston family descends from Nunavummiut arctic wolves from Auyuittuq National Park, in Nunavut. After the virus, they moved to Québec and integrated with the culture, assuming French names; many speak Québec French. They have remnants of a German history, preserved only in some of the names that have been passed down.

The family settled permanently in the Baie-James area, near Lac Sakami. However, most second- and third-generation family members have made their way to 'Souls or are currently living in 'Souls. For more information, see the information on their birthplace, Lac Sakami.

4.  Defining Features

First- and second-generation members of the family are 90% arctic and 10% tundra luperci; white, heavy coats are common, attributable to their heritage. Later generations reflect their parentage, and have a varied array of coat colours.

4.1  Physical Features

Members of the Aston family are often either large or slightly above-average in terms of size.

Eyes


Éloise and Andira demonstrate pale and bright blue eyes, respectively

Eye colours tend toward strong, rich colours; but there are exceptions to this. The most typical Aston family eye colours are a rich sky blue or a pale green. Gold and yellow eyes are also common. Most members show one of these three eye colours, although there is a broad variety of eye colours, especially in later generations.

Conforming eye colours

  • Blue eyes are the most predominant. They usually come in the form of rich sky blues but lighter variations are also possible. Blue eyes are seen in Tayui (#197492), Barthélémy (#1E90FF), Éloise (#B8D8D5), Claudius and Amoux (#1DD6EF), Attila (#ADBABA), Andira (#1388C8), Carya (#556B82), Amorette (#20B6B6), Lust (#31c4c4), Laurentin (#51809c), and Death (#5F939E)
  • Green eyes are another common colour, with some variation seen across members of the family, but most highly concentrated among descendants of Aurèle. Seen in Aurèle (#6C834D), Océane and Olivia (#77BFA1), Anatole and Timmiak (#97CD2D), Tuktu (#96A8A1), Famine (#A6B8A4), Kino (#037A21), and Haku (#319E49)

Non-Conforming eye colours

Fur


Aurèle and Beatriç demonstrate two variations
of rich, off-white coats
  • Characters tend toward having White (#ffffff) and Silver (#C0C0C0) coat colours owing to their northern heritage. Many with white coats also tend to smatterings of colour, such as lighter shades of Tan (#D2B48C), including Pearl Bush (#E2D8CA) and Ecru White (#F3EFE2). Seen in Tayui, Aurèle, Barthélémy, Attila, Honoré, Éloise, Carya, Siginik, Asik, and Amoux
  • Gold (#FFD700) and Brown (#964B00) coats are also common among wolves, especially in the third generation and beyond. Colours can range from rich Brown Rust (#B2633B) and Muddy Waters (#B68E59) to paler Chalky (#EEC39C) and Sapling (#DCD1A2) and less vibrant Hurricane (#8D7F7C) and Comet (#5E6275). Seen in Anatole, Noir, Myrtle, Sébastien, Allegro, Mésange, Andira, Auguste, Valérian, Beatriç, Francesch, Timmiak, Tuktu, Danaë, and Laurentin
  • Darker-hued coats emerged most recently in Océane and was passed down to her two daughters: Amorette and Olivia. Oce's coat is a Dark Chocolate (#433016) and her daughters' coats are a similar Mocha (#3F3029) and Bistre (#3A2B1E). Two of the three children from Amorette's first litter also have dark coats, seen in Lust and Greed.

Distinct Markings

4.2  Mental and Emotional Features

For the most part, members of the Aston family lean toward the 'good' side of the alignment spectrum with many leaning toward Neutral Good and some Chaotic Neutral.

Personality

Spirit Guides

As many members of the Aston family have resided in AniWaya, they often have found a spirit guide. It appears as though birds are the most common representation of a spirit guide for members of the Aston family.

  • Attila's spirit guide, Markku, initially appeared to him as a grizzly bear; but later changed his form to that of a barn owl after the barn owl Attila was caring for died.
  • Aurèle's spirit guide is a pied crow.
  • Anatole's spirit guide is a golden eagle named Donoma.
  • Noir's spirit guide, Kinigisdi, was a bluebird.
  • Claudius's spirit guide, Iman, is a gerenuk, also known as a Waller's gazelle, a type of long-necked species of antelope indigenous to the horn of Africa.
  • Océane's spirit guide is an albino cobra snake named Aedus.

Religion, Irreligion, Spiritualism, and Beliefs

There is no set religion for Aston characters and many are guided by internal belief systems. If they follow a form of spirituality or religion, it is often individualistic and personal to the character. The best determinant of whether a character follows a religion is their pack affiliation. Members of AniWaya are exposed to Cherokee forms of spiritualism, while members of Vinátta are exposed to Norse religious beliefs from Solbjorg Valley.

Members hailing from Lac Sakami are often either irreligious, hold Cree-based belief systems, and/or believe in a loose form of nature-based spiritualism.

Forms of religion, irrelegion, spiritualism, and beliefs include:

  • Cherokee Spiritualism: practiced mainly by Laurentin, Danaë, Claudius and Océane.
  • Norse Religion: practiced mainly by Tayui's mate, Anu, and passed on to their children; however, they are still developing their beliefs.
  • Agnostic and nature-based spiritualism: Tayui is for the most part agnostic, believing that spirits exist, generally, and doesn't subscribe to one religion or set of spiritual guidelines.
  • Irreligious: Barthélémy had no knowledge of religion or spriritualsm and neither did his sons, Myrtle, Sébastien, or his grandchildren, Beatriç and Francesch

4.3  Names

The most common surnames are Aston or Bélanger. However, and Tayui was born as Tayui Aston-L'leh. When she left her birthpack, she went by Tayui L'leh, but later changed her name to Tayui Aston after the fire destroyed Bleeding Souls.

It is not uncommon for family members to change their surname as they age.

When Tayui and Anu had their litter together, they decided to give two of their children the surname 'Aston' in honour of Tayui and the surname 'Coeur' in honour of Anu, as she does not bear a surname, but wanted to give the children a family name nonetheless.

Both of Myrtle Hammerkop's children (Beatriç and Francesch) took on their mother's name, del Fraysse, as they were born and grew up not knowing their father.

4.4  Skills and Abilities

There are certain professions, skills, abilities, and weaknesses that are shared among Aston family members. For example, members of Lac Sakami and descendants tend to be bi- or tri-lingual; a consequence of a multicultural pack.

Skills

Some Aston family members share a love of or a predisposition to certain skills.

  • Crafting: Claudius and more recently Attila are crafters in AniWaya.
  • Warriors: Tayui initially became a warrior out of a joke to herself when she was a member of Anathema, but it stuck. She continued on her role as a warrior in Vinátta. Her daughter, Andira is a warrior in the pack. While a member of AniWaya, Tuktu was ranked as a warrior. Auguste Aston is a warrior-monk type; while he pursues the scholar ranks in his pack, he is also skilled in armed combat.
  • Trading: Carya is a highly-ranked trader in Vinátta. Francesch was recruited by members of Lac Sakami to remain in the pack as a trader, and although he was quite skilled, he found the expectations to be too stifling. Although not intentionally, Claudius has struck out on a number of trading trips for AniWaya. And while not a trader, Tayui was always interested in trading information.
  • Fire Tenders: Océane has been ranked as a Fire Tender in AniWaya and Attila held the Fire Tender and Firestarter ranks in AniWaya and Anathema, respectively.
  • Teaching and Learning: Tayui has been interested in history her whole life; while in Jaded Shadows, she held the Baird co-rank and later went on to found the pack Shadowed Sun, which was based on the premise of learning and sharing knowledge. Olivia was formerly ranked in AniWaya as a teacher. Auguste Aston is able to read and write and is ranked in Vinatta's Scholar tier.
