Stannis de le Poer is a the son of Alaine Winters and Gabriel de le Poer. He is a mostly-dog hybrid, born in Airgid Gleann, though presently lives in Salsola, where he is a high-ranked member.

During his coming-of-age travels, he encountered a curious stranger and soon after found himself traveling to Nova Scotia. He joined Salsola and began assimilating to the pack's culture. Over time, a casual familiarity between Stannis and Salvia Eternity (the pack's leader and Basilaris' sister) developed into an infatuation. When it became apparent that she felt the same way, Stannis made up his mind to remain by her side rather than return to his birthplace. They became mates, and he fathered Dullahan, Osrath, and Blair Eternity with her.

A capable fighter, sailor, and experienced diplomat, Stannis often works as Salvia's eyes, ears, and mouth on diplomatic matters outside of the pack. He regularly frequents Portland and Fort Preble, and has traveled as far as Onuba while on such missions.

1.  Appearance

1.1  Basics

Essentials

Stannis is mostly dog and this is evident by his confirmation, which is overall lean. Despite this, he resembles a wolf in size and his face is structurally closer to a wolf than a dog. His left eye is yellow, while his right eye is blue. During winter, Stannis pelt becomes "fluffy" looking, though regardless of the season the area from his tail to his hocks is feathered. It is likely he is a carrier of merle and brindle genes, as both are hinted at through his appearance (ie; heterochromia & fur "ticking").

Strengths

  • Combat (Accomplished): Exposed to various techniques and weapons, Stannis was trained by his father and later learned "on the job" as a sailor. He has participated in several wars during his time in Salsola. Stannis favors unarmed and feral combat.
  • Tactician (Master): Complex strategy and "wargames" have been pastimes of Stannis' for years. He has an excellent eye for such work and an uncanny ability to make quick (and often correct) decisions.
  • Language (Accomplished): Stannis is fluent in English and Gaelic. He understands but does not speak German and some Bulgarian.
  • Sailing (Accomplished): Though no longer an active sailor, Stannis is capable of preparing and handling a ship and its crew. He is very talented with knots and navigation.

Weaknesses

  • Stubborn: Stannis can become fixated on matters. Once his mind is made up, it's hard to change it.
  • Devoted: Undoubtedly, the center of Stannis' world is his mate. He would do anything for Salvia, even if it were to violate his own moral code.
  • Short-Tempered: He doesn't usually blow his cool, but Stannis can be moved to anger quickly, especially when his family is involved.

Previous Packs and Ranks

Stannis was the middle child of the first “legitimate” litter between his parents, following his brother Baratheon Winters and proceeding his sister Mairsile de le Poer. He was raised in Northern Ireland in the company of the Macha Tribe. From an early age, Stannis showed himself highly interested in the strategics and planning of war games. Seeing this, his father sought to educate the boy further and encouraged his interests. When he was old enough to shift, Stannis began hanging around boats and doing his best to learn them—he was eight months old when he first “captained” a ship, having “accidentally” borrowed it alongside his brother.

In October of 2012, his elder brother Elijah Winters returned home. Stannis initially disliked Elijah’s presence (having not seen him since he was a child) but soon came to recognize his elder brother's abilities. Stannis was sent away on his "coming of age" expedition not long after that, traveling to Dublin and later Amsterdam. It was here he first encountered a frightful giant. Patient and convinced there was more to this stranger, Stannis worked to befriend the man, who eventually revealed his name and a puzzling story about his origin. Much to Stannis' surprise, parts of this were soon confirmed by two travelers from Salsola.

Wanting to see if this was true (and perhaps a bit protective of his friend), Stannis joined the trio on an overseas voyage that had them landing in Freetown and traveling north. Though Stannis did not intend to stay, he became enamored with Basilaris' sister, Salvia Eternity, and remained.
