UNIQUE MARKINGS/DEFECTS

BRAWN OVER SIZE: The sheer discrepancy between The Stranger's dwarf Wolven form and her sheer weight comes down to a shocking amount of densely-layered, almost cat-like muscle and immense fur weight. She may be limber but falls hard with each step, and is therefore difficult to ignore when you are her decided target. With a sloping head and low form, what she lacks in grace and stealth she makes up for in immense stamina necessary to bulldoze through her obstacles. This is advantageous in the north, where she very easily conserves her heat, fat, and can easily shove her way through the highest swells of snowfall. Do not be fooled by the pillowy fluff and squat stature.


COMPANION: MAMMOTH BEAR

A BEAR NAMED WOLF: Loup is a massive Mammoth Bear mount, protector, and best friend. Loup is roughly 11' at the withers and 8' in length with a snout almost twice the size of a dinner plate. His coloration is particularly abnormal, with a black mane and mask against striped dark brown majority. A long scar cuts both above and below his left eye, and his vision in it is relatively impaired as a result. His name is derived from French, and although he is no Wolf by design nor history, he is Wolf enough to her. Despite his appearance and personality, Loup is incredibly thoughtful and inquisitive when the moment allows it, and he is in-tune enough with The Stranger that she can communicate with him by signing her hands against his pelt to a great amount of success. (ART SOON)

STATUS: MIA. Loup has been missing for 8 years. The two were separated during the same event that Anyu was separated from her sister Uki. During a trafficking attempt, the Corzyan Pirates managed to separate the two snowfarers, and then eventually separated Anyu from her companion, who stayed behind to ensure her escape. Anyu isn't sure where he is, now...

THE BASICS



THE DETAIL

NAME OF PINTEREST BOARD NAME OF PINTEREST BOARD


THERE WAS NOTHING CEREMONIOUS ABOUT THE STRANGER'S PLACE IN LIFE. NOT A QUEEN, NOT A PRINCESS, NOT AN HEIR, NOT AN ASPIRING ANYTHING. AN INDIGENOUS WOMAN OF SNELANDIA'S YUKON TERRITORY, IN THE MIDST OF NONE BUT THE ICE AND SNOW AND TERRIBLE WINDS. EVENTFUL DAYS WERE VENTURING TO THE YAK FARMER BEYOND THE FROZEN PASS FOR WOOL, SHEARS AND WICKER BASKET IN HAND. HAIR PULLED BACK ALL ALONG THE WAY, WITH THE GLARING WHITE WINDS THREATENING TO RIP THE RED SASH FROM HER BUN.

DOMESTIC, WOULD BE THE WORD. HANDS COVERED IN FLOUR OR BURNED BY A FIRE THAT LEAPED AN INCH TOO FAR FROM THE BOTTOM OF A WOK. OLD CORN STALKS WASHED AND SAVED AS WRAPPING FOR DUMPLINGS LATER, AND A SOAKING BATCH OF WOOL NEARLY WHITE AND READY TO BE DYED, SPUN AND EVENTUALLY MADE INTO WINTER CLOTHING. A WOMAN OF MANY TALENTS, RESOURCEFUL AND INCREDIBLY AWARE. EVERY DAY, THE SAME: WAKE, DRESS, TURN THE FLAMES IN THE KITCHEN, HAIR TIED AND VENTURE OUTSIDE.

A CARETAKER, A HOMEKEEPER, TRADITIONAL IN THOSE WAYS. PERFECT IN AGE TO BE GIVEN TO A PROSPECTIVE MATE, AS DECIDED BY THOSE OUTSIDE OF HER OWN WILL. FAMILY AND TRADITION WERE INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT IN CLANS SUCH AS THOSE, THOSE WHO WED NOT FOR CHOICE BUT NECESSITY; SURVIVAL. IN THE YUKON, FEW WOMEN OF HER SKILLSET AND NATURE GO WITHOUT A RING FOR LONG. THIS TOO WAS TO BE HER FATE. SIMULTANEOUSLY POISED AND PRETTY AND YET PRACTICAL, CAPABLE, AND HANDY--USEFUL FOR A MATE WHO WOULD FIGHT AND DEFEND HIS LAND WHILE SHE KEPT HIM FED AND ALIVE. SHE APPEARED OKAY WITH THIS ALLOTTED FATE ONLY BECAUSE SHE DID NOT SPEAK AGAINST IT.

A MINIMALIST? NO, A REALIST: IF SHE HAS WHAT SHE NEEDS, SHE NEED NOT WANT FOR MORE. SMALL LIVING SPACES, EVERYTHING MADE FROM SCRATCH BY HER OWN HANDS, AND PREORDAINED FATES. WITHOUT THE COMFORT OF A CITY, A CIVILIZATION MARKED BY MORE THAN MARKS IN THE FACES OF TREES, THE STRANGER LIVED A TRADITIONAL, ALMOST ANCIENT LIFESTYLE. DESPITE HOW IT APPEARS, DESPITE HOW TRADITIONAL A HOMEMAKER SHE WAS, IS, STILL, LET NOT THE STRANGER'S SEEMINGLY-TAME SKILLSET FOOL YOU. ALL THAT COOKING, HUNTING, SHEARING AND FORAGING HAS MADE HER INCREDIBLY GOOD WITH A KNIFE OR TWO.

SO WHEN IT CAME FINALLY TIME TO PROVE THAT...SHE DID. LIKE AN ANIMAL TRULY AT PEACE WITH WHAT IT KNOWS AND WHAT IT CAN DO, ANYU DOES NOT BARE HER FANGS UNLESS SHE INTENDS TO USE THEM. HER DECEPTIVE SILENCE IS THE MOST DANGEROUS OF ALL HER TRAITS; BECAUSE SHE IS STILL A WILD THING, A STRANGER, THE STRANGER, AND WILL REMOVE LIMBS IF SHE SEES IT FIT AND AT THE VERY MOMENT SHE SEES IT FIT. SURVIVAL, SURVIVAL, SHE WILL FIGHT WHEN NECESSARY AND FIGHTS TO WIN OR KILL OR BOTH.

WHEN THE PIRATES THREATENED HER ONCE-CONTENTEDNESS, SHE SNAPPED IT FREE LIKE A LITTLE TWIG BENEATH HER WRAITH OF A WEIGHT. SIMULTANEOUSLY DELICATE AND YET NOT AT ALL. SEPARATED FROM HER HOME, HER FAMILY, HER SISTER WHOSE HAND WAS RIPPED FROM HERS DURING AN AMBUSH, ANYU SCRAMBLED BACK INTO THE BURNING SHAMBLES OF HER MODEST LITTLE SNOW HOME AND RIPPED THE FLOORBOARDS UP FROM BENEATH HER TINY BED AND PULLED FREE THE ORNATE CURVED BLADE PASSED FROM HER LATE FATHER.

THE REST, IS HISTORY.


NAME OF PINTEREST BOARD NAME OF PINTEREST BOARD


DESPITE HER WILD WAYS, ABRUPT AND SEEMINGLY MORE ANIMAL THAN THOUGHTFUL, WE WOULD BE FOOLISH TO FORGET HER MANY DOMESTIC TALENTS SHE HAS BEEN TRAINED TO "GIFT" A HUSBAND WITH. IT'S OKAY, SHE DOES NOT MIND IT BEING CALLED THIS; MERELY, IN HER WORDS, "IT WAS ACCEPTABLE BECAUSE I HAD NOTHING MORE CALLING ME. NOW, I DO." AS ALL ANIMALS DO, ADAPT. AND BECAUSE OF THIS SHE DOES NOT INHERENTLY THROW AWAY HER MANY TALENTS. MAKING CLOTHING, PATCHING WOUNDS, PRESERVING FOOD AND ESPECIALLY COOKING; HER FOOD TENDS TO BE SIMPLE BUT HEARTY AND LIFESAVING. THE SOUPS MUST BE IMMACULATE TO SURVIVE A DANGEROUS PLACE LIKE THE YUKON. AFTER ALL.

SHE IS ALMOST CONTRADICTORY OF WHAT YOU WOULD EXPECT OF SUCH A "TRADITIONALLY-RAISED" WOMAN: YOU EXPECT A MEEKNESS BY DESIGN, A CALMNESS, LOVING AND EMPATHETIC. BUT IF SHE FEEDS YOU IT IS BECAUSE SHE CHOOSES TO, IF SHE HEALS YOU IT IS BECAUSE YOU ARE WORTH THE LIVING, AND IF SHE PULLS HER BLADE OR BOW OR BARES HER TEETH FOR YOU, IT IS BECAUSE YOU ARE WORTH KEEPING FOR HERSELF. DON'T FORGET SHE'S STILL AN ANIMAL AT HEART.

THE TRIVIA

01. ANYU WAS ARRANGED TO MARRY A MAN CHOSEN BY HER AUNTS AND UNCLES. FOR REASONS SHE WILL NOT SPEAK OF, SHE DOES NOT SPEAK OF HIM AND WILL NOT SAY HIS NAME OR ACKNOWLEDGE HIS EXISTENCE. THIS IS BECAUSE HER RELATIVES CHOSE A CORZYAN SLAVER AS HER GROOM IN A BID TO KEEP HER AND THEIR FAMILY SAFE, BRIDGING THEM WITH CORZYA TO CREATE A CLEVER CONFLICT OF INTEREST. (WILL SOMEDAY BE UP FOR ADOPTION BC WHY NOT)
02. ANYU PREDOMINANTLY SPEAKS IN HER FIRST LANGUAGE, QSL, A SNELANDIAN-SPECIFIC SIGN LANGUAGE. MOST HER LIFE HAS GONE BY WITH BARELY HEARING HER OWN VOICE, OR OTHERS' FOR THAT MATTER, BECAUSE THE CONSTANT BLIZZARDS OF THE YUKON MAKE SPEAKING A WASTE OF ENERGY AND DETRIMENTAL FOR KEEPING ONE'S INTERNAL TEMPERATURE STABLE. AS A RESULT, HER ENGLISH IS ROUGH AND AT TIMES WHEN SHE DOES NOT KNOW HOW TO EXPLAIN A WORD, SHE WILL SIGN IT INSTEAD. GETTING HER TO SPEAK AN ENTIRE CONVERSATION IS VERY DIFFICULT.
VOICES ARE NEARLY SACRED, ALIEN, AND SOMETHING TO PAY EXCESS ATTENTION TO. TO OTHERS, THIS FASCINATION MAY SEEM STRANGE, AS WELL AS HER VIEWS ON HER OWN VOICE.
03. ANYU WANDERS GILEAD SEARCHING FOR HER SISTER AND FOR LOUP IN THE FIRST TIME SHE'S EVER LEFT SO MUCH AS THE YUKON ITSELF. EVERYTHING HAS BEEN ALIEN TO HER THUS FAR, WHICH MAKES FOR BOTH HILARITY AND POTENTIALLY-AGITATING ENCOUNTERS WITH THE STRANGER.
