Profile of Moorhen: Details
Appearance
A lean but sturdy figure. Base coat ranging from dark charcoal to dusty brown, with cream markings on her face and sides. Moorhen is on the larger size of the medium scale, well-muscled and trim. Her eyes are a disturbing burgundy, usually set into a hundred yard stare.
Personality
Moorhen is a prickly, suspicious creature, not used to interaction with other living things. Although she sometimes enjoys the company of trusted wolves, her first reaction to strangers is to clam up and act defensively.
Biography
Born to a nameless mother and an busy father, Moorhen was cared for as a child by her aunt and a nursemaid - the latter became her strongest bond during the short time they were together. Her mother died in childbirth, and her father disappeared soon after, leading to the disbanding of her natal pack. For a time, her aunt continued to care for her, but was increasingly violent toward her young niece, favoring her own children over her.

Eventually, her aunt left as well. Moorhen stayed for a time with a member of her disbanded natal pack and her two cousins, but during an impromptu walk along the coast, she became separated from her family.

Moorhen survived by scavenging along the coast and - eventually - hunting smaller prey animals, nearly dying of starvation several times throughout her young life. She did, on occasion, find companionship in another lone wolf, but this rarely lasted long until she met an older male who took her under his wing. When he found out she did not know her own name, he gave her a new one. Moorhen traveled with him until he died, learning all that she could and serving him to the best of her abilities. On his dying day, he asked her to take on his surname.

A few months later, Moorhen found herself back in the Teekon Wilds. She spent some time going by Sif, the name given to her by the aging male, but returned to using Moorhen after a chance meeting with her long-lost brother. After spending some time in a harem attending to the wives there, she was reunited with her nursemaid, Coelacanth.

Moorhen went to live with Coelacanth on her island, Undersea, along with the rest of her pack. She remains happily with them to this day, and has recently been promoted to Akhlut.
