Profile of Liffey: Details

Character Model: Alexis Bledel as Rory Gilmore

Though she takes her name from her late aunt, Liffey takes after her parents and older brother in appearance, and is nearly identical to her littermate, Lagan.

Her pelt is a wash of gray shades fading to white along her underside. She sports the trademark black spine with slivers of white trimming the inky fur just past her shoulders to the middle of her back. Between her brilliant orange eyes is a smudge of white and trailing across her cheeks on either side is a streak of darker gray. Her visage is marred only by a scar that runs across the bridge of her nose, originally inflicted by a cougar and then broken deeper by Moonspear's alpha.

Liffey appears petite, delicate and sylph-like, but carries herself with subtle strength and confidence.
Since her youth, Liffey has proven herself to be a well-balanced mixture of both of her parents. She has her father's patience and level head and her mother's curiosity and fire. She has also developed a few personality quirks of her own that can be explained by neither parent, including a tendency to be easily distracted, which causes her at times to space out during conversations, which she isn't great at in the first place considering she is plagued with fragile self-esteem and is often shy, emotional and flighty.
In spite of being less than stellar at social interactions, Liffey is a fiercely proud and protective wife and mother. She has an elitist regard of her family and tends to look scornfully upon other children that are not her own, though she recognizes this as not being one of her better qualities and works very hard to keep it hidden. She also tends to be very traditional in her child-rearing - something that stems from the insecurities she blames on the way she was raised by her mother. She favors her sons over her daughters, treating them as the princes that will one day rise into kings like their father while she grooms the girls to be doting wives and mothers to their own future kings.

Liffey was born the product of bad timing and the best of intentions. She was conceived mere days before a swarm of locusts descended on her pack's lands, stripping away every strip of plant life and consequently driving out nearly all prey. It was the beginning of a famine that lingered for the entire length of her mother's pregnancy, causing damage not only to her home but to the woman who carried her.

In spite of the circumstances of her birth, Liffey spent the first month of her life in a safe and happy environment, surrounded by two loving parents and a doting older brother. Unfortunately, it seemed not meant to last as nearly a month after the litter arrived, Liffey's sister was kidnapped by a wolf her twin called a "monster". Her father left shortly after to search for Lucy, leaving her in the care of a far more less happy family.

But life went on. Finley eventually moved her two remaining pups to the rendezvous site where they could be closer to their extended family. Not long after, Elwood returned home with tidings of ill-luck in his search for Lucy. Finley left then to begin her own search, determined not to return without her second daughter.

Two months passed before Liffey saw her mother again. During that time, the pack experienced its second loss. Her Uncle and alpha of the Caldera, Peregrine, passed away "in his sleep" unexpectedly in late October, leaving the pack broken-hearted over his loss. It was around this time that one of the alpha pair's older daughters returned to them - Raven - and Liffey found herself something of a role model in the absence of her own mother.

Finley returned unsuccessful in her venture, but being too young to really remember her sister well, Liffey was simply thrilled to have her "moms" back with her again. But tragedy was not yet done with the Caldera for though the new year brought a new batch firebirds to the pack, it also brought the death of their remaining alpha and Liffey's aunt, Fox. Her parents both stepped up as alphas after the loss, and Finley and Raven took on the additional role as surrogate mothers to the new puppies who originally numbered six, but after a week were down to five.

A short time of peace followed the coming of the new litter, but soon enough the Wilds were set upon by a terrible Winter. The elements forced the pack to retreat into a cave near the center of the territory where the pack often sheltered from storms. After two weeks of unrelenting weather, the ice and snow that had built up on the walls of the Caldera finally collapsed under its own weight. The avalanche caused a cave-in that divided the pack from each other - Finley and four packmates trapped inside with the puppies with the rest of the wolves locked outside. It was four days before the pack managed to tear the wall down that separated the two of them. During their time apart, another of the firebirds had lost its life, leaving four of Peregrine's and Fox's last children left.

The weather eased shortly thereafter and the pack was finally free from their confinement. Life began to return to normal for most, but for Liffey, she began to feel disconnected from the rest of the pack. Her approach to adulthood brought on the typical teenage struggles. As her interest in finding herself and her passions began to grow, she started looking to her mother to be her guide in exploring these things. She found Finley to be distracted with the responsibilities of raising the firebirds as well as leading the pack. This caused resentment and bitterness to grow between the girl and her mother, which drove the wedge between her and her life at the Caldera even deeper.

Winter turned to Spring and most days found Liffey exploring the Wilds outside of the territory. She learned a great deal about the world around her, meeting a number of different characters and honing her scouting and naturalist skills. The idea of finding a new life for herself away from the Redhawks began to form slowly in her mind until finally, she met a wolf who made her an offer to join a small band of wolves all of a similar age who apparently were searching for a future just like the one she had decided she wanted.

Liffey took her time trying to decide whether or not she would join them. On the night of their departure, she had decided to remain behind until the conflict with her mother came to a final head, driving Liffey away from the Caldera once and for all. She spent a few days on her own, mourning the family she had sacrificed for her dream before catching up with Rannoch's pack and allying herself with them.

Aaaaaand in another four months, I'll update this again :)
