OOC ASSUMPTIONS!

Inferni members may assume and reference the following without discussion/asking:

1.  Appearance

  • Size: Lean and small, a little underweight.
  • Features: Long legs, large ears.
  • Coloration: Red tabby. Olive-green eyes.

2.  Personality

Flea is a very affectionate cat. He loves everyone -- whether it's other cats his age he can play with, clan coyotes who have better things to do, or animals like horses and sheep. (Only things small enough to kill are exempt from his friendship, due to a high prey drive.) He's often found underfoot, meowing incessantly for attention -- peppering his Low Speech with the occasional canine word. Flea is far more like a needy puppy than a proud, solitary feline.

2.1  Skills & Abilities

  • Flea is a great hunter of small prey -- mice, shrews, etc. -- and has a rather high prey drive. He's a great teacher to the other young mousers.
  • He knows a small smattering of High Speech, but this speech is slurred with a feline accent and mostly consists of simple phrases and courtesies. Sometimes he'll mutter a variation of "Go away, Flea" if someone seems irritated with him.

2.2  Likes & Dislikes

  • Likes cats, horses, coyotes, anything with a pulse that will love him~
  • Likes to maul and decapitate and otherwise torture and eat small fuzzy animals!
  • Dislikes being alone.

3.  History

  • Flea was born in a litter of three to a feral queen in The Dampwoods.
  • A couple months after his birth, his mother was killed. The orphaned kittens were found by Bridget Rhiannon and Vesper. Flea was taken in by Vesper, his siblings by Bridget.
  • Vesper reluctantly raised and took care of Flea out of some goodness of her heart, though while she brought him food and more or less looked out for him, she berated him constantly for his obnoxious clinginess. She quit providing and caring for him the moment he was able to hunt for himself.
  • After Flea's attachment issues became too much for her to bear, Vesper gifted the young cat to her daughter, Vicira, to get him out of her hair.
  • When Vicira moved to the Great Village, Flea decided to stay behind with his feline friends -- though he still felt abandoned.
  • Flea soon after found a home with Versace Inferni, who took him in after he "saved" one of her children from a rat.
  • Present during the D'Neville Mansion fire, Flea was brought to safety by Jethro Lykoi.
  • Following Versace's death, Jethro assumed guardianship of the cat.
