Physique

Body ¤ Combat ¤ Possessions ¤ Art

Body

fan pelt | whistling mask; maskless | default with poppies

reference, face, antlers

frame; chiseled muscle | battlescarred, not delicate or pretty | rugged appearance | compact build | sharp hooves | tailless | earthy brown hide | natural gradient, darker back with a light underside | bright gold stripes | flaxen blonde crest, drops into human-like hair round the face
tines; resemble elk antlers | long, sharp tines | dark brown, almost black in colour | many points compared to length | branching, dense, hardened | scarred as well, with broken points | ceased growth, never shed
guise; jade green eyes | fair skin, scattered freckles | not very feminine | somewhere between a TEF face and a human face, unique | scarred | broken nose | intense expression

Build is similar to a red deer stag, but more lean; simply a TEF deer. Neck is slimmer due to less testosterone, but still holds the weight of her antlers. Powerful muscle, rough and hard as that of a seasoned warrior. Long, straight back, squared hindquarters. Tail was ripped off in a fight. Strong legs with wide, sharp hooves. Wild, yet refined. Compact and dense.

Coat is very much like that of an average deer in texture, smooth in the summer and fluffy in the winter. Mainly muted brown in colour with darker points and back, with a pale underside and rump. 12 golden stripes down her back from the middle of her neck to just before her hips, longest stripe is over the back of her withers and each stripe to its front and back decrease in length. These stripes are thin and somewhat jagged, sharp. A crest of blonde fur begins near the top of her neck and turns to a head of long, wild hair, which typically falls to the right of her head and out of her face.

Possesses a humanoid face, and despite her set she does not wear a mask. In general, very angular and without an easily discernible gender. Intense, with focused eyes. Nose is slightly bowed, thickened from being broken repeatedly. Long, light eyelashes and defined brows. Round and expressive ears. Thin lips which are often somewhat rough from exposure to the elements, set in a neutral downward curve. Many minor scars.

Major hypertrophic scar on left shoulder from where a large chunk of flesh was ripped apart, healed poorly. Limps in cold weather and after extended amounts of activity. A great weakness. Numerous bite wounds from a predatory doe, primarily concentrated on the back of the neck. Two tine pierces on the left side, a long tear scar on the right. Ugly gore scar on right haunch from Lats'vel. Appears to have been infected before it healed. Minor cuts on front of forelegs and on the hocks from attackers' hooves. Single throat scar from Reed.

Very rarely wears a skull, though with no set change. A gift from Verve. Wears it for celebrations, putting poppies in the eyesockets. Sees through the nasal cavity and out from underneath it.

Bonded



Matthias
Snowflake. Newborn son. Loved always, protected.
When wakeful, he seems to be a bit of a mischief-maker. Currently finds it more endearing than troublesome. Most of the time.

Nepenthe
Glimmer. Newborn daughter. Loved always, protected.
The most robust and seemingly outgoing of her newborns, strong and 'talkative' within hours of her birth. Her pride and joy -- glad to have had a daughter among the boys even if she loves them all equally.

Braithe
Little Sunshine. Newborn son. Loved always, protected.
Her small, mottled boy. Worries, probably too much, about his health and survivability in an often cruel forest, but her fears will likely be abated as he ages. jk he's also super accident prone and ryff is gonna turn into a helicopter mom if he keeps it up

Accendare
Early guardian. Loved always. Kin.
Sort of a mother figure. Met at her birth. Longed for closeness, still does. Distant, but cared for immensely.

Atti
The Rook, Her Fortress. Stripeless. Longing. Gone.
Met the fallen god once, and that's all it took. Formed a mutual infatuation -- sun and moon, tumult and grace, knight and oath-holder. Even with their opposites, he matched her intensity and passion. Inseparable lovers for a time, binary stars. Then his visits dwindled into scarcity, which at first didn't bother her. He would always return. For a time, he did, until rarity turned into nothing at all, and he did not return. Still, her heart remains with him, even as heartache creeps into her memories of him.
She wonders if he ever loved her. Sometimes, she wonders if he was ever even real.

Saosin
The Sun. Inferno, Warstag. Kin. Wounded.
Was once a mentor figure. Helped him to awaken when he was Lost. Though they may not always see eye to eye, considers him a wise and respectable individual. Heartbroken and conflicted by after the death of The Red's daughter, and though his actions revolt her, remains compassionate towards the damaged bull and seeks to help him heal. After continued rejection and a threat on her life from the damaged stag, wonders if he's a lost cause. Avoids, but not without regret.

The Red
The Earth. 'Virgil.' Anchor. Kin. Deceased.
At first, found the feral stag to be somewhat unreachable due to their differing mentality and tendencies. Over time, as he was frequently in Saosin's company, opened up to him and found him to be a fount of a unique sort of wisdom. Cherished the old stag immensely, as a friend and teacher. His presence was a comfort to her. As his life came down to an end, found herself somewhat lost. The wound of his death is deep and raw.

Gustiro
The Palisade. Big Red, Poppy. Kin.
An enemy during her first year, later her ally. Comforted by the bull's affection. Was once interested in him romantically, but lost this as he seemed incapable and later grew close to Dinah Moon. Now regards him as a brother, an ally in times of trouble.

Ma'ao
Darkling. Estranged 'kin.'
Accendare's biological son. Feels the need to protect what she considers as a sort of half-brother, especially in the wake of constant failings from the adults in his life. After a confrontation in the pond, has found that the young bull would prefer that she stay away from him, and will oblige for the sake of his happiness. Ultimately knows that she failed him too, but is disappointed by his behaviour outside of the influence of others. A source of incredibly mixed feelings and pain.

Yep! Seems you found her bio

Yep! Seems you found her bio too! Tracking this. I didn't mean for her to just plop down and make herself at home but I was suddenly called away to go shopping with my mom. She's going to teach me how to crochet so maybe some day I can crochet some forest deers!

I'll add Ryff to her relations soon!

Got to love little baby temper tantrums, haha! Especially lately. But she's right, Jun will get over it. She's emotionally erratic at the moment.

Yeah, Ryff understands. She's pretty patient with little ones, and with the stress and everything she knows how it goes! She just wants to make sure she doesn't get herself in danger when Ryff is fighting.

It was hard to tell from

It was hard to tell from where I was standing. I couldn't see specific movements other than still deer moving around in circles, haha. I had forgotten that I read about that tiff with them though. Still, Jun doesn't want to lose Ryff. I think she's developing a fear of losing her loved ones in fights. Don't know yet. We'll see how it goes.

Steady pace set by a brain

Steady pace set by a brain floating elsewhere, a grey doe wanders amongst a quiet stretch of green. Greying hair hidden by the natural color of her coat, she idles for a moment as a figure appears to her side. Blinking, a small smile crosses her face as a wave of pleasant recognition overcomes her. She then continues onward, ears facing backwards, and eventually comes apon the brown hind.

A quiet breath is drawn and exhaled. "It's been a long time, hasn't it?"

"Mmm..." The Knight heavily

"Mmm..."

The Knight heavily rests a shoulder on a young pine, small enough that it bends a little under her weight. It's a lazy day for her, relatively speaking. Her eyes are half lidded, and a smile spreads slowly across her thin lips. It had been ages indeed. Ryff slowly lifts her head, scraping her tines through the small branches.

"It has. I've missed seeing you, Dinamo," Ryff said, stepping in a bit to give her a friendly sniff and toss a lock of dark hair. She chuckled; yes, this was her old friend, cute and sweet as she'd always been. "Years... damn. It's great to see you're still here."

She's known many who simply vanished and never returned to her. Life in the forest for many seemed strange and temporary.

"How have you been? How are your children?"
din's picture

She steps closer with a

She steps closer with a smile, and returns the gesture. "I've missed you too." She feels a bit guilty saying this; but as time was an enigma in the forest, even to her, it was difficult to understand where it all went. A heavy bloom of nostalgia develops in her chest as she recalls the time they last saw each other. Dinamo takes a brief moment to look over her friend, and tries to compare how she looks now to how she looked in the past. Time had surely changed them both, for positive and negative alike.

The next statement shakes her. It was true, but just so hard to remember. "I agree. It's hard to find those who are constant, whether they mean to be or not." She says this with a sigh, and remembers all those who have come and gone. "I'm just happy that were still here today!"

Following this statement with a chuckle, Dina brings her knees to her chest and sits in the soft grasses. "I've been much better..normal, again. Anj coming back has..really helped me become me again." The grey, finally at a point in her life where she felt stable enough to be alone, and confident enough to talk about it, smiles. "I know my kids are okay. I haven't really seen much of them, but I know they're living their lives happily, somewhere." She leaves the statement there, ready to elaborate if asked, but not wanting to bore the doe with the dreary details if she would rather not delve. "How about you?"
