The Cormier family is a small family of dogs and an adopted wolf. They currently all live in Krokar, with August Cormier being one of the leaders. They all have skills related to fishing, trading, and animal husbandry. They are definitely mutts, with the known breeds being German Wirehaired Pointer, Giant Schnauzer, Dutch Shepherd, and Bernese Mountain Dog. The four current blood relatives are siblings.

Their heritage is a mashup of French Canadian and Swedish, and the siblings know some words of each, as well as English.

General information about features that define this family.

3.1  Physical Features

The blood relatives in the Cormier family are dog mixes and very much look it. The main breeds include the German Wirehaired Pointer, Giant Schnauzer, Dutch Shepherd, and Bernese Mountain Dog. This variety of dog breeds means that their builds can differ greatly from more bulky to wiry.

Eyes

Mostly a range of browns, although blue and orange can also be seen in the second generation.

Fur

Due to the German Wirehaired Pointer blood, it is common for Cormiers to have fur with a wiry texture. Silky is also a possibility due to the Dutch Shepherd, which was the long-haired variety. Fur colors vary, but are generally shades of brown or grey due to their dog breeds. Splashes of whites and creams are also common, as is a brindle pattern, which may be difficult to see on their longer fur.

Some color examples include:

4.  History

The Cormiers started with mixed-breed dogs who spent a lot of time around human fishermen. After the virus wiped them out, the dogs continued what they knew, slowly learning the skills their previous owners had, and teaching them to the younger generations, each more skilled than the previous one. One member of the family, Briar, eventually met a female from Sweden, named Aster.

Trade influence came in when Aster and Briar met a pair of coyote traders, and these skills were also passed onto their litter of puppies. More canines joined them, bringing skills in animal husbandry, specifically caribou care. Aster and Briar were killed in 2012, washed away in the hurricane.

The Cormiers lived in a small village setting until their home flooded in 2014. At this point, they decided to move, and so August Cormier and his mate Lucille set off in search of a new home. The family eventually founded Krokar. The pack flourished, and at the end of 2014, Willow Cormier was born to Eliza Cormier and Storm Cormier. A few weeks later, Lucille gave birth to Nellie Cormier, Norah Morelli, Remy Cormier, and Oscar Morelli.

5.  Culture and Homeland

  • For religion, the Cormiers tend to have varying degrees of superstition and a belief in animism as well as a generally benevolent water goddess.
  • The Cormiers were raised to know how to trade and fish, as this was a shared culture between their parents and original pack before the move to 'Souls.
