Name: Perun
Age: Early middle-age
Gender: Male
Species: Gray Wolf

Rank: Lower Gamma
Origin: Off-mountain
Side: Neutral
Pack Affiliation: Ice Pack

Description: Big, tall and muscular, with defined musculature and a solid, square muzzle. His fur is grayer in summer and whiter in winter, though always a kind of blend of the two colors. His eyes are the color of old gold, fierce and flashing like a bolt of lightning. x
Personality: Crotchety and ornery, Perun has little patience for most anyone. He's not stupid, though, and while he's apt to be a little gruff he won't snap without reason - or without apology. He does have a soft spot for young things of any species, though, and in the presence of pups in particular he will turn into an absolute teddy bear, suffering any indignity to make a puppy smile.
History: Perun comes from a fierce and warlike northern country with a history of strife. He did not come from lofty beginnings; his father served as beta in the pack into which he was born for many years, a massive group of wolves united under a single pair of alphas in a comfortable albeit much too large pack that came about after centuries of interim pack battles. When Perun and some of his brothers and sisters were teenagers and young adults, they participated in an uprising against the alpha pair, led by their own parents; this coup served to create a schism in the formerly-unified pack conglomerate, which led to a division of the huge pack into multiple smaller ones after the initial violence of the uprising. The mega-pack's split led to something of a return to the savage warlike clans of before, with only a few packs maintaining anything close to the original conglomerate's numbers while most dwindled to a more reasonable population. The thriving and survival of each pack depended largely upon two things: where they happened to settle in the land formerly belonging to the mega-pack, and the ferocity with which they could defend their lands against invaders.

Perun managed to snag a fairly cozy piece of land for himself and his then-mate, Sif, a spitfire of a fem whose bubbly and bombastic personality stood in sharp contrast to Perun's tacit and serious one. Shortly after the disposal of the original alpha, he and his mate and a few friends who had chosen to follow them established themselves and led fairly comfortable lives on the former outskirts of the united territory, desirable for its abundance of prey and the ease of its defense, considering it backed up to a mountain range. A confident and competent leader, Perun and his small pack thrived in their small but well-off territory, managing to live in relative peace despite the frequent attempts by local rival packs to either raid or overtake their lands. Settled into a comfortable routine, they even took it upon themselves to expand somewhat by having pups; three litters came of Perun and Sif's time together, and they were well taken care of.

While the two settled into near-middle age and while Sif was pregnant with their last litter, news came from the south: a new young leader had gained following again and was threatening the autonomy of the packs. At the time, because of their sustained numbers and easy protection of their territory in the past, neither Perun nor his mate considered this upstart anything of a threat: besides his youth and apparent inexperience, they were so far removed from any kind of central activity that they did not feel threatened. They were wrong. The forces of the upstart struck close shortly before Sif's birthing date, a cause of anxiety that ended up costing Sif not only two of the lives she carried within her but her own life as well: Koku's birth was not easy, and she was the only surviving pup of her small litter, and then just barely: she was a sickly and deaf child, nearly as demanding in her health needs as she was sweet and loving in her temperament. Distraught by the loss of his mate and children, Perun was completely unprepared for the upstart, whose forces came sweeping down from the mountains one cold night and caught the old gray beast by surprise. Perun, some of his sons, and his little pack battled fiercely, but perhaps in deference to the loss of his mate, the reality that he would be unable to hold his lands any longer dawned upon Perun before any more lives were lost. It was in this battle that he received his flank scar, which at the time rendered him essentially unable to do battle for a good while. He surrendered fully to the invaders and, once again, became a member of a coalition of previously-autonomous, smaller packs.

Relegated to the status of training coach and strategic consultant after his injury left him essentially debilitated and unfit for battle, it wasn't long before Perun fell into depression--over the loss of his territory and his status and, more sincerely, over his mate. Koku was his solace then, and perhaps because of her deafness but more likely for the sense of closure she brought with her by her very existence, he raised her with a measure of overprotection and solidarity he'd never before exerted over his offspring (though Koku did and still does love him for this). As old age drew nearer and his final daughter grew, Perun grew more and more surly and serious. He was reliable still and a good trainer, but became solitary and curt more and more until he realized he was only really engaging with his deaf daughter, who by this time was a teen. With a swift and sudden decisiveness, Perun informed his superiors he was departing the territory, got the appropriate permissions, and took his leave, quickly and without fanfare; not even his children knew where he went. He took with him only Koku and a lifetime of memory.

Upon discovering Wolf Mountain, Perun wasn't sure what to make of the place. It seemed very much different from the savage, war-mongering lands he called home, and yet in his old age he could appreciate that kind of peace and knew his daughter would, too. His search for a home for himself and Koku landed him in the territory of the Wind Gale pack, where he and Koku were soon accepted as members by the alpha, Rue. Unfortunately, soon after this acceptance a certain wanderlust struck the big gray brute, and he and his dark daughter disappeared again to return almost a year later. In that time, Rue had made pacts and preparations to go to war with Ice Pack, and upon his return Perun was informed that he, like all other able-bodied members of the pack, was expected to fight. Though he was far from pleased with the idea of being an active warrior again, Perun had no choice but to accept, and so with a combined force from Fire Pack moved out to make attack on Ice Pack.

The war on Ice didn't last long, but the ravage of war on his old body was nearly too much. He did battle with a young male named Siege, who easily bested him but then took pity on the old wolf and gave him shelter and hospitality in his den. Struck by this mercy and the kindness shown by Siege's mate, Alavera, Perun reconsidered his position in Wind Gale, and after spending some time recovering in Siege and Alli's den at Ice decided to return to Wind Gale to announce his departure from the pack; it was simply too warlike, too savage for his present advanced age. Upon his return to Wind Gale, Perun discovered Koku's deafness had been miraculously cured by a young wolf/dog named Pyrrhus. Happy for his daughter's cure and her newfound companion, Perun informed Koku of his intentions and left her to her own devices before finding Rue and explaining his inability to function as a proper member of Wind Gale, exemplified by his utter failure in the recent war. Understanding, Rue granted him exit, and he withdrew yet again to Ice Pack - this time with entirely different intentions.

His arrival at Ice Pack with a dragon kit he'd accepted responsibility for was met by an entirely unpredictable greeting party: first a wolfess by the name of Ouka, to whom Perun explained his intentions and explanation for the scent of Wind Gale that clung to him, and then Black Rain, the alpha of Ice himself met him at his gates. Perun requested entry into the pack and was granted on the singular condition of Ice Pack residency - to bring no harm to the Pack. Confident he could meet this expectation, Perun was accepted as a full member of Ice. Ouka, who had greeted him with considerable mistrust at Ice's borders, soon became his closest companion, and on one blustery summer day bestowed upon him (and herself, quite by accident) the gift of youth through use of the Ẏṏṹẗẚ blessing. Restored to his glory days, Perun is handsome and young again, though he is still quite serious. Thanks to Ouka's blessing, he has been granted new life on the Mountain, as well as the privilege of a Mountain-wide rank; still, he doesn't do much with his celebrity status, and he can these days generally still be found by the delightful red companion's side.

Mate: Sif (former; deceased)
Offspring: Arkady, Koku, Vassily, Vitaly; others off-Mountain
Family: None

Mythicals: Sevda (Pknankah Glidore/Red Lizard-headed/Yellow Scaled dragon); Brontide (Blue Back dragon)
Miscellaneous: He has a long pale scar on his hind flank from one of many battles; other scars are not so visible under his thick fur. He has also recently been de-aged through a use by Ouka of the Ẏṏṹẗẚ blessing.
Namesake: Perun's name comes from the god of thunder and lightning in the Slavic pantheon.

Name: Ubu
Age: Adult
Gender: Male
Species: Dog mix (Akbash dog x Great Pyrenees)

Rank: Alpha of Fire Pack
Origin: Off-mountain
Side: Evil
Pack Affiliation: Fire Pack

Description: Ubu stands very tall and very large, with the long, shapely legs of an Akbash but the bulkier frame of a Pyrenees, though he is not as fluffy as most. He's off-white in color, with a lot of creamy/pale-blonde highlights to him, and a black nose. His eyes are a ghostly, pale grey-green that nearly glow in the dark. He has floppy ears.
Personality: He is conniving, clever, and highly observant most of the time, which is truly a winning combination. He very much enjoys making mischief, with little care for the consequences, though when it comes back to bite him as it so often does he gets unpleasant with the results. He is charming and manipulative, and never speaks or even smiles without motive behind it. For all that he is clever, though, his two main faults are his vanity and his cowardice; he is incredibly vain and while he's not afraid to do dirty work, he doesn't like dirtying his paws too much. As for his cowardly nature, he keeps it private as much as he can, but Ubu is very frightened of the mere concept of death. He doesn't want to die, ever, which perhaps explains his preoccupation with procreating...
History: Eventually

Mate: None
Harem: Aysu; Cillenzia (former); Mink; Aela
Offspring: Ceyhan, Kadri, Rueben; Ayako, Basri, Eli, Ellie, Mubin (x Aysu) | Kandro, Loreleigh, Nascha, Quinoa, Zarenil (x Cillenzia) | Avis, Curiosity, Joanne, Thea (x Mink) | Anise, Rye, War (x Aela)

Mythicals: Lear (Smokey Grey dragon); Laius (rigel); Baisemain (Snow-winged Glider dragon); Koumiss (Common Singlis-Rhaniqin)
Miscellaneous: Ubu is deathly afraid/highly spiteful and hateful of humans, and will do just about anything to avoid contact with them. He also will try to seduce you, if you're a lady~
Namesake: Ubu's name comes from the main character of a late 19th-century French play called Ubu Roi, or Ubu the King.

Name: Acacia
Age: Adult
Gender: Male
Species: Red Fox

Rank: None
Origin: Off-mountain
Side: Neutral
Pack Affiliation: None

Description: Smally built, even for a fox, with auburn-red fur that is more vibrant along his back and fades a little to a more orange color as it moves down from his spine. His ears are dark brown, along with stockings of varying heights on each of his legs. His jaw, cheeks, underbelly, chest, and neck are all off-white, as are the insides of his ears, the tip of his tail, and the two white dots, one above each eye. His nose is pink, and his eyes are sage green.
Personality: Acacia is timid, shy, and perhaps a bit cowardly, but very, very curious. He loves mythicals and magic, as he comes from a place where there weren't any, but most of all he loves to hear stories. Occasionally he's been known to put his paw in his mouth, and while he is generally good-hearted he can be very gullible as well as a bit of a pushover.
History: Eventually

Mate: None
Offspring: None

Mythicals: None
Miscellaneous: Acacia loves listening to stories, and despite his timidity is an adept hunter.
Namesake: An acacia is a kind of tree, mostly known for their thorns and strong fragrance.

Name: Koku
Age: Young adult
Gender: Female
Species: Wolf

Rank: None
Origin: Off-mountain
Side: Good
Pack Affiliation: None; formerly Wind Gale

Description: Slender and delicate, perhaps the best word for this small fem is "petite"; she is dainty and gentle, though capable of being very quick with her light frame and small size. Koku's pelt is very soft and shiny, and in color is a very dark brown, almost black. Black brindling stripes her legs, giving her the appearance of a shadow, especially considering the speed and quiet with which she moves. Her eyes are dark and smiling, and her face usually wears a pleasant expression regardless of her task.
Personality: She is sweet and caring, though very shy and unassuming. Koku is growing bolder by the day, and rather enjoys spending time in the company of others as well as alone. Because of her previous deafness, she can easily get overwhelmed in a very noisy world, though she tries her best to not let it affect her too much, as she is very thankful for the gift of hearing. She can get easily excited, and in that state it's somewhat easier for her to trip over her words, which only makes her more embarrassed; she's very quiet and self-controlled otherwise, though, preferring not to make a fool of herself in any given situation. Generally she remains quiet, as the sound of her own voice is jarring and disjointed for the fem, but if pressed to or made excited she will speak, sometimes with great expression and exuberance.
History: In progress

Mate: None
Offspring: None
Other Family: Arkady, Vassily, Vitaly (brothers)

Mythicals: Epher (Heilen Dragon)
Miscellaneous: She was born deaf, but healed by Pyrrhus's use of the Sounding blessing. D'aww! She also has a bit of a crush on him. Go figure.
Namesake: I got her name from a character in the Hellboy series of graphic novels, but a quick Google search informs me that a "koku" is a Japanese unit of volume measurement. The more you know!

Name: Pitseleh
Age: Young adult
Gender: Male
Species: Mexican Wolf

Rank: None
Origin: Off-mountain
Side: Evil
Pack Affiliation: Coral Flower; formerly Fire

Description: Naturally smaller than most wolves both in height and build, Pitseleh is petite. His fur is typical coloring for wolves, mottled greyish-brown and cream, though he takes good care of himself and it shows in his pretty, lustrous fur. He has dark, shining eyes, and walks with a bit of a limp in his left hind leg, though it doesn't hamper him much.
Personality: He is cautious and wary by nature, much more apt to distrust someone than easily go along with what's said, but he is generally pragmatic and polite. He's duty-driven, and it's very important to most others that he meets that he proves himself, whatever that might entail.
History: Eventually

Mate: Robin
Offspring: (4/19/12) Hugo, Owl; Grayling, Kaska, Octavia (adopted)

Acquaintances: Jawbone (brother); Passerine (sister); Strider; Achilles; Sigurd; Frieza
Mythicals: None
Blessings: Chameleon, Agile, Dust, Teleport, Terra Cell, Poison Barb, Swap, Breath, Water Breath, Fire Breath, Mitternacht, Iron, Fly, Me
Miscellaneous: Pitseleh was born the runt of his litter, which explains his small stature.
Namesake: Pitseleh's name is a Yiddish word meaning "little one" or "dear." It's also the name of a song by Elliott Smith.

Name: Fatima
Age: Young adult
Gender: Female
Species: Dog mix (Saluki cross)

Rank: None
Origin: Off-mountain
Side: Evil
Pack Affiliation: None

Description: Slender and deerlike, Fatima is a lovely but petite beauty. Her luxurious, silky pelt is a pale blonde in color that fades to cream and then white on her legs, chest, and underbelly. Her ears are long and floppy, and the fur there is longer and blonder, feathery almost; the same feathery fur is along her tail and haunches. Her eyes are dark brown and her nose is pink.
Personality: Fati is clever and can be manipulative, but this deviousness has been somewhat tempered since meeting her boyfriend, Axel. She is genuine and straightforward, and if you need an honest opinion on something she's the one to ask - she's not one to mince words. She is fiercely devoted to her sons, brother, and Axel.
History: Eventually

Name: Cashel
Age: Young adult
Gender: Male
Species: Wolf/dog (Irish Wolfhound/Huntaway/Border Collie)

Rank: None
Origin: Son of Remarkable (deceased) x Meg (deceased)
Side: Good
Pack Affiliation: Coral Flower, kind of

Description: Cash has an odd combination of features from his parents. He has the height, coarse coat, and long, thin, coltish legs of his wolfhound father, but a broader and more wolfish muzzle, with a dash of wily intellect in his face from his border collie/huntaway mother. His colors are like a border collie's as well, an off-white patched with black spots. His paws are much too large. His tail is cropped and his ears are floppy, and his eyes are a pale sky blue.
Personality: Awkward and unsure of himself, he can be made massively uncomfortable in a matter of moments. He frequently trips over his tongue, and will almost always manage to say something unusual or vaguely offensive without meaning to. All in all, though, he has a good heart, and is dependable and sweet.
History: Cashel was born on the Mountain, one of three pups in a litter that likel never should have happened. His mother, Meg, was a domestic farmer's dog, and disappeared with his brother Andy before he could remember. He lived with his father Remarkable and sister Summergrass during his puphood, though he doesn't remember them very much in the fleeting summer days of his youth. Perhaps that's for the better; both Summergrass and Remarkable were murdered by vampires when Cash himself was very young. He witnessed the murder, but has since blocked it out, indeed sometimes so distancing himself from the incident that he doesn't recall his father or sister's existence. As far as he's aware, he's been fending for himself for as long as he can remember.

He met Urumi, a blind fem, one summer at the Traydon River, and has since been practically and awkwardly devoted to her. He is currently living with Urumi in Coral Flower without permission from the alpha, helping his friend raise her four pups - pups whose father he doesn't know. He still feels strongly for Urumi, and though he was a little uncertain about how to feel about Yoko, Falarica, Chuttuval, and Hope at first, he now quite likes them and functions as more of a babysitter(/chewtoy) figure than an actual "father figure;" he doesn't know how to be a father, but in assisting in the rearing of the pups he's certainly trying to figure it out.

Mate: None
Offspring: None

Acquaintances: Urumi; Falarica; Chuttuval; Yoko; Hope
Mythicals: none
Miscellaneous: Cash has a deep-seated fear of vampires, but he doesn't remember why.
Namesake: Cashel is the name of a town in Ireland.

Name: Halifax
Age: Late adulthood
Gender: Male
Species: Wolf

Rank: None
Origin: Stillborn on-Mountain, parents forgotten; resurrected by Tazendre
Side: Good
Pack Affiliation: Water Pack; formerly Shades of Limited Fate gang.

Description: Halifax is a big, older male wolf; not quite so big as some of the monsters on the Mountain, but definitely larger than your average wolf. His wings are equally massive, feathered and powerful like a buzzard's. Apart from the three-clawed scar over his blind left eye, and a few other scars dotting his person, he's fairly average-looking; just a big black wolf with a single gold eye. He's got a mean look to him, but it's all an act.
Personality: Generally solitary and a bit gruff at first, Halifax's personality fits that of a retired military man tempered by years out of service. He's a tough nut to crack at first, all surly and old-mannish, but the reality is he's very much a family wolf and is likely to talk your ear off should you give him the opportunity and lend him a listen. As old as he is, he's still considerably sprightly, and despite his usual seriousness or stately posture there's a spark of mischief in his one golden eye.
History: A stillborn pup to a young couple who quickly forgot about their ghostly son, Halifax as a spirit was discovered some years after his death by the now-legendary Thorn of the Mountain, Tazendre of Limited Fate. After promising his life in servitude to the Thorn, Halifax was granted life, and upon the bestowal of a Life blessing grew to the age and size he is and has been since. Large and fierce as he was then, he was soon employed as a sort of body guard and errand-runner for Tazendre, and made his home in Shades of Limited Fate for some time... until he met his mate, Celtic Sprite. Instructed to find a female with whom to return to the gang territory with pups for training and assimilation into the gang, Halifax made his way to the Find-a-Mate Clearing, only to discover a young white female who soon captured his attention - and his affections - and who has held them ever since.

Utterly beguiled by Spritey, Halifax abandoned his position in the gang, content to make a life of love with his new mate. Unfortunately, had forgotten about the war that threatened the Mountain, the war led by Tazendre himself, the vampire Lestat, and the evil Dame Kirik who trained them both in the shadow of her dark wing. Halifax, ever the warrior, was reluctantly drawn into the conflict he had once so looked forward to. (Fight in the war; capture; held prisoner by Taz - loss of eye and son Manasseh; peace time; movement to Water Pack; so many pups; Megumi; disappearance; return; Thanh's inheritance; disappearance again; return, with Thanh; return to Water.)

Mate: Celtic Sprite (vanished)
Offspring: Many; no surviving.
Family: Thanh (grandson)

Mythicals: None
Miscellaneous: Halifax is one of my oldest characters on WM.
Namesake: Halifax was a city in Nova Scotia.
