At a Glance
Profile of Nightjar: Details
Nightjar is a large and bulky wolf with mixed brown, grey and cream fur that vaguely resembles tree bark. Particular markings include dark shoulders, conspicuous white patches on all four ankles, white lines near his lips resembling a moustache, and faint reddish hairs on his cheeks and nape. His colours are brightest in summer and muted considerably in winter. With a thick, feathered ruff, rounded ears and short legs, he physically resembles a Mexican wolf. He is fairly slow but very powerful. He is permanently deaf in his left ear. His eyes are bright silver but he is blind in the center of his field of vision ever since staring at the eclipsed sun for too long. He can still see in his periphery.
Nightjar grew up to be an amalgamation of his parents' natures. He is ruthlessly practical about reality and follows a wild creed much like his mother, believing strongly in survival of the fittest and the superiority of his own bloodline and judging those who are weaker, but he is sometimes gentler than she was and occasionally displays a little of his father's good-natured silliness, particularly with close friends. Nightjar often misses the punchline of jokes. In spite of leaving them at a relatively young age to wander on his own, family has always been important to him and he has never pledged to follow any other wolf but his parents and their successors.
Nightjar was born and raised in Redhawk Caldera, but left abruptly prior to the birth of his siblings as an angsty teen who felt like an unwanted third wheel. He spent a lot of time wandering the wilds beyond his home, getting on well enough alone and refusing to join any ragtag bands of wolves out of loyalty to his family, but recently has chosen to return to them at the Caldera. All in all, he has had an excellent life. On September 16, 2017, Nightjar left Redhawk Caldera upon accepting that his vision was not improving, fulfilling his own belief that wolves who can't contribute and are of no use to the pack should go off quietly to die. Not too long after, he was killed by a starving bear in Wild Berry Meadow that he couldn't fight off without his eyesight, and his remains were found by his sister, Raven.
