2.  Personality

Spirited and energetic, but loyal and obedient. Difficult to spook, sometimes a little overexcited with many stimuli.

2.1  Skills & Abilities

  • Kresnik is trained for riding. His speed is unremarkable, but he is a strong and tireless horse who, while sometimes unfocused, is extremely obedient to his rider's wishes.
  • He is difficult to spook because of his temperament and training, though he is no warhorse. He may lash out during battle if pressed.

2.2  Likes & Dislikes

  • He likes mares, other geldings, his handler; socialization and affection in general.
  • He likes water -- especially wading in streams or riding along the ocean. Baths are great!
  • He dislikes bossy stallions and can be nervous and defensive with them.

3.  History

  • Bred to the Svantevit pack, a fit -- if unremarkable -- example of the pack's horses. Gelded and trained to their standards.
  • In late May 2016, Vicira Tears demanded her "gift" earned by her esteemed Rex III title. Receiving Vesper's blessing to trade Inferni goods for her gift, she set off with Sinech Dalisani to Freetown -- and, after an unexpected detour to nearby Portland, found the Svantevit pack. She traded some of Sinech's well-made horse gear and a pair of ewes in exchange for Kresnik, whom she brought home.
  • During Tigana's pregnancy and early motherhood, Kresnik became Vicira's primary horse. She rode him in the battles of the Second Boreas Conflict and the Inferni-Salsola War.
  • During the dark times following the Inferni-Salsola War, Vicira cared for her personal horses the best she could -- even to the detriment of other livestock (and, some might argue, the clan itself). When Inferni disbanded in August 2018, Vicira fled west, taking both Kresnik and Tigana with her.
