1.  Information

1.1  Rules and Policies

  1. Help us keep the list updated! For example, remember to add an animal your character obtained for the pack. If you do not want to update the Wiki or cannot, please post in our maintenance thread.
  2. Please keep the total word count of your description in the list below 150 words.
  3. If your new animal needs a pixel, let us know.

1.2  Types of Animals

Communal

  • Ownership: Communal animals belong to all of Cour des Miracles. Feel free to add animals, but please remember: once an animal is given to the Court, it's kinda like our pNPC and belongs to us as if formally adopted. We might kill it, we might give it to another character, etc.
  • Use: Communal animals may be used for any purpose by a member of the Court. E.g., borrowing a communal horse to ride south for purely persons is absolutely fine. Permanently taking a communal horse as your character's isn't so fine! ;)
  • Trading: Look out for the [NT!] and [RT!] tags -- they indicate an animal should be returned and not traded. In some cases, trading is encouraged -- look for the [FT!] tag for Free Trade. IC consequences may occur if permission is not sought from the leadership before a certain trade.
  • Death and Injury: Injury or death of a communal animal may result in consequences. We're flexible, but please ask first!

Owned

  • These animals belong to a particular character; they are non-canine cNPCs (companion NPCs) of their canine owners. Don't powerplay: ask the player before directly controlling or referencing their NPC.

Mare 2003

  • History: Used to be a communal horse in Cercatori d'Arte, then was gifted to Skoll. Gave birth to a foal in May 2014. Skoll made the difficult decision to give Hwin away -- and offered her to Alessan Stormbringer, who needed a plow horse.

Heritage (Abigail Sadira)

Stallion 2010
  • Abilities: Riding, Combat
  • Description: A sorrel stallion, Heritage is a cocky horse with an attitude. He doesn't mind other Luperci, and is delicate with females and children. He has a fierce personality and longs to challenge things. He is happy to be groomed and fed by anyone, and does not bite or attack strangers unless it is clear they are not of his home.
  • History: Born in the February 2011 Blizzard, he was given to Silvano Sadira by Liliana Utina. After the Utinas fled to Crimson Dreams and Liliana died, the horse came into his sole possession and was later handed down to Abigail Sadira.

Baldr (Thyri Dawnbringer)

Baldr is a very mild and even-tempered gelding. He is affectionate toward other creatures, from puppies to cats to adult Luperci, and often takes a submissive role around other horses; this allows him to get along with his more dominant herd-mates.
