    Mauki


    The Basics

    The Body


    Height: 5'11
    Body Type: Fit
    Hair Color: Dirty brown
    Eye Color: Blue

    Appearance:
    Mauki is just growing out of his coltish faze. Which has, admittedly, lasted quite a long time. Well muscled from plenty of physical activity, he is still a little skinny with it. A bit awkward, and not very well groomed. And everyone is pretty sure he has fingers instead of toes on his feet.


    The Mind


    Craft Strengths: 15pts
    Witchlight
    Heating & Cooling
    Physical Shields
    Craft Weaknesses: Um. Hello, no Jewels?

    Personal Strengths: Nothing is gonna keep him down!
    Personal Weaknesses: Really, nothing stops him please send help.

    Personality:
    Mooki is pretty bold for not having any Jewels. He doesn't let the lack hold him back, and suffers no quivering jealousies over the baubles. He has basic craft, that's good enough for him! And he doesn't suffer under any sort of weird tempers like the other males do!

    Because Mooki is a happy child young man. Care free to the point of very nearly being ridiculous. But Mooki doesn't care. He doesn't even care if you call him Mooki. He provides for his tribe, takes good care of his sister (as far as he's concerned) and doesn't cause too many problems. So why worry?

    He isn't a complete idiot, whatever you may think. Mooki is just very good at working with what he's got. He knows how to navigate among the Jeweled Blood, and how to sneak past them if need be. He is open hearted, quick to make friends, and quicker still to defend those he cares about. Which tends to be anyone he's met once.


    The Backstory


    Family:
    • Tane | Father | Yellow to Summer-sky Warlord
    • Marama | Mother | Blood female
    • Nyree "Reeree" | Older Sister | Yellow to Tiger Eye Queen


    History:
    Mauki was a loud babe, born squalling like a banshee, he never did seem to stop. Though slowly his wailing turned to screeching. A boisterous toddler who climbed anything and everyone, only to shout in their ears and leap off. He was quite keen on his older sister, and often only quiet at her request. Nyree didn't mind, and took Mooki - as she named him - with her everywhere.

    Inseparable. They learned tradition at their mother's knee, and basic craft at their father's. Earning their place in their tribe, finding their rhythm. Wandering children, each pair following the other. Mooki sometimes took turns leading, dragging his sister along on great adventures.

    Dares to climb higher, Nyree lifting him as best she could so he could grasp branches. Mooki trying to help pull her up from his perch. They did near everything together, and Mooki found it strange when he did things without her. He did sometimes, taken off by their father for lessons in hunting - which Nyree was no good at.

    Some things they could not experience together. Mooki knew this. He learned it too, early. Maybe six, playing with Nyree in the stream. She could catch fish with her fingers, and was trying to show him. But Mooki was afraid of the water. He didn't like the way it pushed against his legs, and the rocks were slimy beneath his toes.

    He was excited because it was almost time for Matavang, and Reeree had promised him he could go with her to see the Priestess, and that she'd let him touch her Jewel when she got one. He wasn't ready yet, but that was okay, because his sister had promised to share.

    Except his sister didn't go to get her Jewel that year. Because that was the year she died.

    Mooki remembers screaming. The way the water washed over her. He'd never run  so fast. And Mooki hopes he never has to ever again. Too little to catch her and pull her out himself. But his cries brought the adults. From trees and shrub they appeared, hunters bearing spears. His mother sobbing as they pulled Nyree from the water, limp and pale. His father's hard face, hand heavy on his quaking shoulders.

    The Healer's Prince pressing down on Nyree's back, rolling her over and pressing down on her chest, then over and over again, back and forth while the Healer spun webs and poured out power. Until Nyree coughed up a river and opened her eyes.

    They did not go to Matavang that year. Instead they stayed close to home, Mooki's hand rarely straying from Nyree's. Their mother following them wherever they went, which she never allowed to be very far. The next year they went however. His father wanted Mooki to have Jewels, so Mooki would never be so helpless again.

    Mooki thought he did too. Except he received no Jewels. Like his mother, all his power was contained within his body. Nyree did though. And she let him touch it too, but only once, because she said it felt funny when he did.

    No Jewels and no wolf. That was ok. Mooki could try again later. But he never did try again. Instead he trained hard, harder than anyone else (in his mind). Their father took no mercy on him. He wasn't a great hunter - waiting was boring! - but Mooki could fight. Especially good with a spear, he pummeled opponents with the long shaft, and spilled their (pretend) blood with its point.

    And when Mooki wasn't training, he was with Nyree. Many were often with Nyree. But she preferred him best, and she was why he trained so hard. Not to make up for his lack of Jewels, because Mooki didn't need Jewels, but to protect his sister. She was worth protecting. She needed protecting.

    He grew from scraggly boy to scraggly youth to a less scraggly young man. And never once did Mooki go where Nyree was not. Not even when she went places he could not follow. But she always came back for him, from those places, places that required Jewels. She always came back for him. And with that Mooki was content.
