Cour des Miracles Adoptable Characters!

Interested in joining Souls for the first time? Want another character in a pack you've never played? Are you interested in joining a pack that has existed since 2009 and has a rich cultural history and a wide swathe of personalities? Then you have come to the right place!

Cour des Miracles-Owned Adoptables

These characters are communally owned and can be used for roleplay by any other member of Cour des Miracles. On picking up a pNPC, you may find your character has quite a lot of acquaintances -- and has helped quite a lot of canines. However, there are also characters that are owned by the pack but are not currently pNPC's of the pack. These characters are often much more free-range but do not offer the same level of connection to the rest of the pack. Hit the button below to show adopting information as well as the contact form.

  • Constantly pick up, drop, and switch characters.
  • Have adopted from us before, only to drop the character.
  • Who constantly ask for adoptables, then fail to join with the adoptable.
  • Show severe streaks of inactivity, constant absenteeism, etc.

Please don't be discouraged! Ask if you are interested in adoptables!

Myrtle Greenwood

  • Gender: Female
  • Species: Dog
  • DOB: 2012
  • Rank: Margrave
  • Description: Absent-minded, protective, creative, and soft-spoken. Myrtle is always moving around at a quick pace, talking with packmates, cleaning cages, or poking her head in to check on a sick or injured bird. She is bird-like herself in the way that she will flutter around a room and give each cage individual attention. She has a protective side when it comes to the animals, and in her eyes, the animals of the pack are as much kin to her as the canines.

For Cour des Miracles Members

Do you have an adoptable that you are listing for the world to see? This is the place to put 'em! Click show to see more information on listing your adoptables. Please note, that all adoptables shown below are not property of CdM and may have different contract requirements.

Add Your Adoptable

  • As long as your adoptable is stated to be headed to Cour des Miracles, you prefer Cour des Miracles membership, they have family or plots related to Cour des Miracles, etc. -- they're welcome here! We're pretty inclusive. If you're really not sure, just ask.
  • You can post in the Cour des Miracles Maintenance Thread and we'll update the list for you. Please include all relevant information.
  • If your character is listed anywhere, please let us know if they are adopted so we can update stuff or remove the stuff yourself.

Featured Adoptable

Cour des Miracles picks featured adoptables and promotes them in a small image, which is displayed on the Cour des Miracles ranks, website, and Wiki pages -- along with anywhere else our members care to display them! Featured adoptables get a tweet posted about them, as well.

  • Add your adoptable to be selected for feature! Your adoptable can be selected multiple times as a feature until they are adopted.
  • We tend to feature NPC adoptables before non-NPC adoptables, but may also choose to promote non-NPC adoptables, too.
  • You can purchase featured status for your adoptable via the Cour des Miracles game.

Other Information

  • Post to the Cour des Miracles Maintenance thread.
  • You must have your own 88 x 31 image. Request one if you do not already have one.
  • You absolutely MUST let us know if your adoptable is adopted. Seriously! It sucks to have adoptables who are already played occupying promotional space where other adoptables may be listed -- let us know when yours has been adopted, please.
