The Body


Height: 5'11"
Body Type: Fighter strong
Hair Color: Dark brown to black
Eye Color: Yellow

Appearance:
Swift muscle. No bulk to hold him back, Winter is like a serpent. A whip. He is dexterous and ambidextrous. A fighter through and through, his body is battle hard. War trained. Reactive. Callouses and scars and rumbled clothing.

Fly away hair. Yellow eyes in a pensive face. Always waiting, wary, and ready to surrender. Higher ranking pack mates. Strong women. Queens he can't name. Winter tries to be stoic, but his face is like a glass shell. The veneer brittle, exposing the worries beneath.

Moonside Winter is much like his name. Opposite the dark haired man stands a pale furred wolf. Soft whites and pale greys. He is not the sort of wolf to blend into his environment, unless he climbs the snow swept mountains or descends into the tundra plains.


The Mind


Craft Strengths: 15/15pts +3 Shifter pts
Physical Shields
Psychic Shields
Telekinetic Hold
Swift Switcher
Craft Weaknesses: Locks. Cushioning Spells. Binding Spells. Telekinetic Manipulation.

Personality:
Winter is a soldier. He takes orders and rarely issues them. All his reservations buried down into the gnawing pit at the center of his stomach. Keeping him awake at night, eyes staring at ceilings. Wood. Shingle. Tree branches. Canvas tent peeks. Hands fists over his stomach to hold the pain inside. An uncomfortable knot of despair that often makes him physically ill. A long term condition no healer can treat.

He is the fighter without a cause. His dedication to the pack. He doesn't question, just does. Fore runner, fighting on the front lines. He has no stealth, no cunning. Winter is straight forward. The blatant approaching storm. His temper a quiet one, bent to the will of others. Directed by the hand at his back.

Soft spoken. Gentle handed. Winter counts his dead. The faces that see him off at night. Pointless? Hopeless? Right? Wrong? It eats at him. What is his purpose? Is he the hero or the villain?


The Backstory


Family:
  • Mama | Mother | Tiger Eye to Summer-sky Black Widow
  • Spring | Sister | Summer-sky to Opal Black Widow
  • Summer | Sister | Summer-sky to Opal Black Widow
  • Autumn | Sister | Summer-sky to Opal Black Widow

History:
They assumed the father was from across the border. Eyrien, or something close enough to leave the tell tale signs. Eyes not quite gold. Yellow like a child's color. Bright. Reflective. Not quite belonging. But Little Terreille was used to the occasional by blow. Sometimes the long lived crossed through the Dark Gate. A dozen reasons thought up by people who had no stake in the matter anyway. His mother just smiled.

Crazy woman, they called her. But they came to her for fortunes. Passing marks over for webs that made promises out what was to come. Truth often enough to forgive when they were lies. Crazy woman. Naming her children for the seasons they were born in. Planned? Someone asked once, the same smile given that answered questions as to their bloodlines. Why the yellow eyes?

Smiles.

He was a good son. The only son. Warlord Winter, growing amidst a coven of spiders. Four women spinning webs and growing fangs while he watched. Sucking his temper dry and teaching him the darkest depths of protection. Winter fought for them as a man. Killed for them as a wolf. Taught by the soldiers of Rodgau. Shown ways by his mother in a web that spanned yards. Rolled up and hidden, brought out with each change of the moon. Read in full each time one of her children had to learn for the first time how to become a wolf.

One day, she told them, they would return to their people. Separated by desperation. A shield spun by fear and powered by darkness. This pack just a transient one. This family not their true one. In the deep trees and old grasses their real people lay. Winter nodded. Winter always nodded. And looked out at the sea.
