Appearance
[Image: tumblr_ozef00PKgi1sy2z51o1_500.gif]

A lean, slender creature with wiry musculature and a lissome build. With a shaggy cloak of alabaster coating her, she appears a bit fluffier and bulkier than she truly is. She has the build of an ectomorph with thin legs and small paws. A dainty curve of the neck gives way to a small head with fine, feminine features and eyes the color of moonlight. Her canines are unusually long, to the point of being visible even when her mouth is closed. As a consequence, her looks are somewhat reminiscent of a member of the Machairodontinae family. The only markings she bears are several scars - bites at the back of her neck, a vertical scar that splits both her lips on the left side of her snout, and a jagged slash across her throat. These scars paint a vivid picture of being brutally forced to submit.
Personality
[Image: tumblr_nmn8xrSt1q1sh8nmro1_500.gif]

"You've got the words to change a nation
but you're biting your tongue.
You've spent a life time stuck in silence,
afraid you'll say something wrong.
If no one ever hears it, how we gonna learn your song?
You've got a heart as loud as lions,
so why let your voice be tamed?
Maybe we're a little different,
there's no need to be ashamed.
You've got the light to fight the shadows,
so stop hiding it away."
Biography
Pre-Teekon

[Image: IcelandClouds.gif]

She was born to two dispersal wolves in Northern Alaska, the smallest and last born of her litter. It was early in life that she began to observe those around her, and it was with distaste that she discovered her own life as she grew out of puppyhood. Her father was a harsh brute who spoke little and landed heavy blows when he struck. Her mother was a fierce bitch, who'd likely have eaten Uki if her maternal instincts had been a tad weaker. They were wild beings, with only the slightest of holds on sanity or speech and little appreciation for beauty or anything beyond themselves. Thanks to the conditions her family lived in and the abuse she found at the hands of such a family, the girl roamed from home often, as far as she dared(in time she proved to be very daring) in search of life and adventures. In time, the child turned to the wilderness fully and left her abusive family behind.

She fell in love with world around her. She could often be found roaming, at times she'd even travel to the sea to watch the pods of orcas pass by or further south to see the herds of caribou migrating. At home, in her forest, she was content to live alone, until the lynx, Thom, came across her secluded heath. The feline, as large as the yearling Uki was, took up permanent residence in the forest and despite her intentions, the isolated girl found a friend in the large cat. In time, they even hunted together and shared a den. Alas, the peace did not last long.

The upbringing she faced and the lifestyle she was raised in indicated that men took what they wanted. Her father had been the first to eat, he was the most dominant, not to mention mounting her mother when he pleased. Uki's brother was a spitting image of their father, a bully to his sisters and mother as a child and unknowingly to Uki, a true sadist once grown. For such barbaric people, it was not extraordinary to hear of a young girl being forced to submit and stolen away; marriage was not a familiar concept and still remains a foreign idea to Uki to this day. It was with great surprise that her brother found her forest and even more frightening yet, sought to claim her as his own. In the fight to keep herself from being stolen, Uki blinded him. So rattled was she by these developments, that she fled her forest to head south.

Whilst traveling alone, the tupilaq, a mere child at the time, was run across by two males. Brutally, the girl was attacked and forced to submit. The males, a pair of brothers, tortured and raped the tundrian - leaving her with her throat torn open in an attempt to silence her after they'd defiled her.

Uki, panicked and weak, managed to wash the wound and bind it long enough to find the herbs she would need. The northern withheld sobs for fear it would open her throat and finish the job for the pair. For months there was little she could do but hide herself away, heal, and bide her time. In time, she tracked the brothers down and on a cold winter night, they found their end in her fangs. This was likely the most notable event that led to her insanity.

Shortly after moving on, the tapeesa found herself stumbling upon a small tribe where she stayed for a time. The tundrian finished healing, trained as a spearwife and even found herself on a council full of spiritual shamans/healers. Uki earned her name, given by a kind mentor, as she had never had one previously.


Post-Teekon

Eventually, she decided to continue south in search of the rich and green lands she'd heard so much about. After departing, she travelled for some time and unknowingly winds up in the Teekon Wilds. She enters the Wilds from the east, finding herself in Blackfoot Forest. It's here that she meets Siarut, a male of similar heritage who seems to speak her language. He invites her to follow his family and she accepts with little thought given. She's hopeful upon being taken into the group but soon finds she is unwelcome and begins to perceive that she is only worth anything to the group by completing necessary tasks such as hunting or patrolling.

Shortly after arriving at Duskfire Glacier, the girl comes to realize that Siarut does not actually like her, not in the way she likes him. Quietly, she finds herself immersing into the pack and taking it upon herself to seek out his sisters more often. She becomes withdrawn and depressed, convincing herself that no one in the pack actually likes her and that she doesn't mean anything to them.

Recently in Permafrost Hollows, she ran across the southron male, Steele. Despite being unable to communicate with him, he seems rather kind which prompts Uki to invite him to join IkKanattuk.

Currently, Uki remains on the glacier, attempting to recover from the depression that has plagued her recently. She appears to be on good terms with the Ateneq sisters, finally, but is confused about her emotions with their brother and trying to focus on getting better.

Naturalist [Image: naturalist.gif][Image: naturalist_master.gif]
Naturalists are so in tune with the natural world that at times, the plants, stones and weather are more interesting to them than other wolves. Rumours abound that these wolves can hear rocks, speak with rivers, conjure spirits and read the skies like body language. While these rumours are exaggeration, every Naturalist has unparalleled knowledge of the natural world, knowledge that at times verges on the supernatural, and are perpetually curious about natural phenomena. Naturalists are the minds of the pack. (in progress)

Botanist: Major focus is on plant care and plant identification. (in progress)
Mastery Progress: 0/20

Toxicologist: Major focus is on poisonous substances and how to protect oneself against them or use them against others. (in progress)
Mastery Progress: 0/20

Mercenary [Image: warrior.gif][Image: warrior_master.gif]
Those wolves who possess unparalleled control over their bodies and a critical eye for the weakness in others go on to become unmatched Mercenaries. They have unsurpassed discipline and the quick reflexes and sharp movements to manipulate weaknesses. Mercenaries tend to be more wild than their non-Mercenary counterparts, and often solve problems with action rather than words. With their brawn and affinity for strategizing, Mercenaries are the pack's muscle. (in progress 4/5)

Guardian: Major focus is on defensive fighting and controlling and refreshing the borders. (in progress)
