Dash


Appearance

Race: Kelvic
Caste: Avora
Gender: Male
Age: 4 (looks 22)
Birthday: 1st of Spring, 515 AV
Birthplace: Wind Reach

Appearance: In human form: Red hair, gold eyes, 5'8, 140 lbs. remaining lean with a compact musculature.
Because it's easier to change form and he runs a bit hot naturally, he prefers to go shirtless in all but the most extreme cold. His clothing is rusty reddish brown colored in a very close match to his fur color in wolf form.

Kelvic Appearance is a Red Wolf with light markings around the lips and eyes. Dash is 63 inches (160 cm) in length, stands 26 inches at the shoulder and weighs 85 lbs (39 kg.) Just think medium to large sized dog height.

Dash wears a sling for his quiver that always contains a change of clothes for in between Kelvic form. The only thing he can't fit in there is his boots.

He doesn't smile. As a Kelvic, which equates to outsider in Wind Reach, he doesn't see a need to smile. Even when he's sleeping, his appearance is always alert. Dash's gold eyes are keenly watching for movement or threats of any kind while keeping his hearing and scenting sense fully on watch. He's very cautious and on the look out for anything he considers abnormal or unusual. The key to his emotions are in how his pupils react and abrupt changes in his posture. Because Dash's nature in both Kelvic and human forms is open, he can't hide his emotions at all. If he's upset about something, he will lick lips and chew or bite them without even knowing.

Character Concept He's harsh without even knowing it. He's very defensive and one day he's gonna hurt himself jumping to (false) conclusions.
**I'd wet myself if I met him. Dash doesn't know people see him as a scary wolf even in human form. He's my lesson on how we rarely see ourselves the way others do. Dash is clueless why and how they avoid his scariness, glowing yellow eyes, growling and turning into a toothy wolf. He has no idea that it's normal to be scared of a wolf. "it's confusing why people are more scared of him sometimes because don't they know he's the exact same" personality in both forms. On his side, he only sees that he's different and ASSUMES they're rejecting his Kelvic nature. For someone with such good sight, he's blind to social cues and how he comes across. Maybe some day, someone will help him understand.

As is the case with all Kelvics, he has no regard for modesty and doesn't care in the least about nudity. Unless it reveals that he's injured in any way. Then Dash would quickly cover up with clothing.
Because his vision is based on movement, he's utterly fascinated with glass and it will often catch his attention more than someone speaking to him directly.
He's a Red Wolf Kelvic that loves hunting and tracking with a deep appreciation for nature. Dash avoids most Inarta after 4 years of being bullied and it shows in his silent hostility and reserved, lone wolf behavior. He walks with a smooth economy of movement, portraying his Kelvic nature, though he doesn't care about his looks regarding human vanity. The young Kelvic doesn't like to show any sign of physical weakness and will hide it as best he can if anything happens. Perhaps stoic is the best word.

Because wolves are digitigrade, he retains the ability to put most of his weight on his toes and the balls of his feet as he walks. Dash's sense of smell and hearing are preternaturally acute, lending a paw to his growing hunting skills. Dash is a wolf at heart and as such, he doesn't lie. He knows body language would show it so he's honest to a fault.
He tilts his head to the side when keenly interested in what someone is saying so it's innate that this wolf trait carries over into his human side. When he's nervous about something, he licks his lips in a subconscious gesture.

Dash is essentially a feral human in behavior and attitude. The young Kelvic strives to prove he is a great hunter. Although he's not the best hunter yet, it's something that holds great value to him. He has acute hearing so he's unusually quiet and reserved.

Character History
As an only child, he latched on to learning from his hunting mentor instead of focusing on being alone.
Dash is serious, very self-aware, intense and solitary, spending his free time wandering the endless-seeming Warrens in wolf form. At 4 Kelvic years old, unbonded, he stopped looking for a Bondmate altogether, turning even more introspective. He trusts no one and has a shy, reserved personality, like any other solitary wolf that never knew a dam or sire.
When not wandering the endless Warrens, you'll usually find Dash at the Stained Glass Gallery by the Avora's columns staring up at the beautiful ceiling.

Found this in the character development questions and exactly what I need for Dash. I'll need to make a couple color adjustments if I can though. I don't know BBC codes very much at all. It's a steep learning curve but best investigated independently. **later edit, ty query for dming me a helpful tip.

Is this not the most beautiful Red Wolf face you've ever seen? Sorry it's so big. I didn't realize the size til after I put it there. I could stare at it for hours.

General Information :
1. What is your Name? Avora Dash
2. Do you go by a nickname or pet name? Dash
3. How old are you? 4 (look 20's)

3. What is your favorite body feature? My tail
4. How physically fit are you? Very. Come at me.
5. How do you typically dress and what is your style? My bryda is about the same color as my reddish rusty colored fur. I can't always tell shades of blue and green apart, but I can see some color. I'm getting some glass added to my bryda at the next Market Day. Maybe I can get a wolf pattern? Glass makes everything beautiful.


Family :
1. Who are your parents and what are they like? My mother was a Kelvic falcon and don't know my father
2. Do you have any brothers or sisters? No.
3. What is your extended family like? N/A

4. Do you have any odd mannerisms, annoying habits, or other defining characteristics? No idea. If so, no one's told me. (bites or chews his lip when nervous, shakes off water and rain like a dog and tilts his head LIKE A friggen DOG when listening to something interesting, making it difficult if not impossible not to laugh at him)
5. Do you have (or want to get) any tattoos or piercing? Why do you have them (or will get them) ? Maybe a piercing a two on my ear. It'll shift when I do so I don't want to look stupid. On the other hand, maybe if they see a pierced wolf, they'll stop shooting arrows at my ass.

A blink later, everything was flooded with vivid reflective stained glass in every color imaginable. It all came from a stationary solid ceiling of glass. It was immobile as a rock and yet the light and colors moved over and through it. I want to be like that. To be solid and strong, yet open enough to let the best shine through me. Glass is amazing.

My guide on the "everybody knows" that not everybody knows. The common bits of knowledge that aren't commonly known and some that are overlooked.

**read your starting package in your instant messages at the top of the forum. READ and look at the lores on the top of the page. If AFTER READING, you still can't find your answers, *then* ask the staff.

**When making a template, always use justify as part of the formatting. that's the acceptable format in threads.

**Discord names are very confusing. What's ID'd as one thing in chat, is another in DM's and still yet another as a PC on the forum. Having up to 3 identifying names can be horribly confusing! It helps to look at the ava in discord to id them more quickly. For the forum pc name, just ask in discord.

**When in doubt, ask the staff directly for exactly what you want from them. Don't be vague. Read the lores on here first before you ask the staff for information that's already easily accessible in your im box as everyone's first message.

**The majority of the people on the forum are Millennial or Gen Z so if you're among these, you'll fit in well. Others may have a bumpy start. But all *adult* ages are welcome.

**Don't be so quick to put in an ava and sig and fifty flashing moving sparkling animated gifs. This is a writing site. Read first, then you'll know what you should write. Then you add those cute avas and custom sigs--of the right sizes.

**Like music and art, write when you're feeling something strong. Let the words flow to their natural extent without stopping for typos or grammar. Feel it, type, crank that music.

This is my newbie learning all the things on a new forum that are 'known' but not written because they are considered common knowledge. I'm sure I'll add more because I'm learning more every day. Have you seen the write up on Races? It's the place to start reading.
