OOC ASSUMPTIONS!

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

  • Seeing Rufus being ridden by Ichabod Bertram
  • Doing general hoss stuff & being cute :^)

1.  Appearance

  • Size: 17 hands. On the taller side for a mustang, but well-proportioned.
  • Features: Chestnut mane and tail with roughly-trimmed ends. Small, miscellaneous scars litter his body, though nothing yet of note. Usually has a sleepy-eyed expression on his face.
  • Coloration: Chestnut with a white streak running down forehead. Boasts a sleek, smooth coat.
  • Equipment: Simple leather halter and saddle. A small leather grip sits where the saddle's horn is usually placed, allowing for faster mounting/dismounting. Both are well-worn and creased with continual use.

2.  Personality

Rufus is an all-around patient and gentle dispositioned horse, if a bit lazier than most. Though he does not boast unusually high intelligence nor power, he is surprisingly perceptive; Rufus is quick to pick up on faint scents and subtle movements in the grasses (as well as his owner's mood). He tends to follow his own whims and rarely responds to rough handlers, often outright refusing to budge if he dislikes the rider.

2.1  Skills & Abilities

  • Both rider trained and saddle broken.
  • Has received scouting training from an early age, allowing him to understand simple verbal and physical commands.
  • Deceptively speedy despite his usual sluggish countenance. He excels at sprinting short distances, though he tires easily in rough terrains.
    • Inexperienced riders may find it difficult to find a middle ground with his speed -- Rufus tends to either run with quick bursts of speed or amble along with slow, meandering paces.

2.2  Likes & Dislikes

  • Likes: Ichabod, Jason, sunning, napping
  • Dislikes: rough treatment, birds

3.  History

  • Born in Zion and received training alongside other Scintillan horses.
  • Eventually was paired up with Ichabod Bertram and participated in various small-scale scouting missions with the coyote.
  • Left Utah in late August 2016 with Ichabod Bertram and Goliath Harland when the pair decided to go AWOL.
