Appearance

General Physique


Slim and lissome, this blonde beauty is quite a sight. Sporting a trim, athletic build, she is fit for speed and agility, with long, deer-like legs which give her an impressive height for a female wolf. Her coat is very light in shade, with a base coat of creamy beige that darkens to caramel along her back, particularly nearing her shoulders. Her eyes are a the soft shade of warm honey.

Distinctive Markings


Four claw mark scars around her left eye from a cougar, and she is missing her upper left canine. Sometimes the lower one pokes out over her upper lip, giving her a sort of snaggle-toothed appearance. She's self-conscious about it, and doesn't often let it happen, though.

Overview

Niamh is a precocious, out-spoken, quick-to-act wolf whose behaviour changes quite easily based on her environment. She is easily malleable, and quite mercurial- but fortunately for her (and the rest of the world) living in a peaceful pack has made her into a somewhat kinder wolf. She is task-oriented, and excels at hunting, patrolling and fighting.

She is not exceptional, however, when it comes to communication, and can be quick to react emotionally. It is hard for her to temper her emotions, and can hold grudges for quite some time, over silly things. She isn't terribly motherly, and while she is capable of empathy, she has a tendency to be short-sighted and selfish. She's improved, after making some very vital mistakes in the first year and a half of her life- but she has a lot to learn yet.

She is most comfortable either playing the victim, or being a clear victor.

Biography

Pre-Teekon Wilds
March 28, 2017- April 5, 2018

Niamh was born alongside her brother, Ambrose, into a large, close-knit pack of wolves founded by her father, Beau, and his two brothers. With their mates alongside them, as well as several other friends, the pack was maintained generally by one generation of wolves, as the children born into the pack tended to wander off on their own as soon as they became adults. Niamh and Ambrose were no different, and after a fairly routine and uneventful childhood, they left shortly before their first birthday.

Ambitious but perhaps without proper restraint, and mildly ill-equipped to survive on their own, Niamh and Ambrose spent a few months together before Ambrose decided to team up with a few other wandering yearlings and lay claim to a territory. Niamh, possessed by a more keen sense of independence, decided to leave the band of ruffians behind, and travel on her own.


Redhawks
April 5, 2018- January 14, 2019


She joined the Redhawks after coming to the Wilds and weathered an extremely rough year. One of her closest friends (Titmouse/Screech/Mou) betrayed the pack and attacked the alpha, which caused Niamh to experience psychological trauma, making her more sensitive, paranoid and anxious when faced with abandonment, betrayal or head trauma. In spite of this, she established a profound friendship with Towhee, who would gain her ultimate loyalty, and also formed a relationship with Colt Blackthorn, eventually becoming his mate. Niamh would also become a dedicated mercenary and hunter over the course of the year.

But the end of her time with the Redhawks would come when a Blackfeather wolf came to the borders- claiming that Screech was still alive- and when Colt argued that they should spare the wolf's life, Niamh's PTSD was triggered, causing her to turn on him and banish him from the pack. At the time, a few of the Redhawks had left to found the Firebirds- with hopes of leading a more peaceful life, and Colt would go to join them. After seeing her error, Niamh made amends with Colt even though it would completely jeopardize her friendship with Towhee- and moved to join the Firebirds.


Firebirds
January 14, 2019- Present


Having mended her relationship with Colt, Niamh attempted to pursue a gentler, calmer life with the Firebirds, and would give birth on May 4th to two pups- Bronco and Nellie. With time, her friendship with Towhee would become mended and her relationship with both Towhee and her brother Phox would begin to grow again. But in July, after returning from a short mother-son trip with Bronco, Niamh returned to find Colt mortally wounded by a former packmate, leading to his death on August 21st.

The months following Colt's death were hard on Niamh. Bronco was an unruly little boy and an angsty teen, and Nellie disappeared at the beginning of October. Several terrible, natural phenomenons caused damage and change to the valley, blocking Towhee, Phox and their pack inside Asterism Grove, though they would eventually escape, and come to join the Firebirds. Eventually, Nellie returned and admitted that she had been living with the Frosthawks- which inevitably created a multitude of mixed feelings within Niamh.

The Inside Cut
The little things you didn't know you wanted to know about Niamh


Pronunciation: NEE-iv.
Note: But I can forgive you if you go for a while thinking it's pronounced so that it sounds like the Doppler effect. nnnneeeeEEEEEEEEYYYAAAaaammmmmm.
Faceclaim: Annie Murphy as Alexis on the CBC show "Schitt's Creek.
NOTE: There is some influence from the character's mannerisms and voice as well, though Niamh's essential personality traits are her own and are not based on Alexis.
Eating Habits:
[Image: giphy.gif]
Niamh is EXTREMELY food-aggressive. She growls and snarls as she eats, and will snap at anyone who gets too close to her while she's eating.
Dental Inspiration: I have based her missing upper canine and resulting snaggletooth on my cat, who is also missing an upper canine, and has a very pronounced snaggletooth. She also snores when she sleeps, so I imagine Niamh does as well.
Musical Influences: A lot of Niamh's thread titles are lyrics from songs by Dan Mangan. Two favourites of mine are Basket and Road Regrets
Leggy Blonde: Some inspiration for her appearance (certainly in her description, at least) comes from the song "Leggy Blonde" by Flight of the Conchords. Just because it's cute.
Speech: Niamh dosn't have an accent clearly indicative of any particular region or culture, but instead speaks with a sort of unabashed bastardization of the English language involving g-dropping, improper grammar, malapropisms, and failed portmanteaus. She speaks quickly and with such conviction that her linguistic quirks might receive mixed reviews- from being described as charming, to being passed off as a sign of poor education, depending on the audience. She knows better- but frankly, she can't be arsed to change it.
Due to having acheived her guardian mastery, she will receive a +3 bump on any dice rolls for fights.

Uhmmm, well, I'm a professional musician... So I'm usually doing absolutely nothing through the week, and playing gigs across the country on weekends :) Feel free to send me a PM if you want a plot or a spree with any of my characters!

JB, Ares and Abraxas ALL had a hand in making Niamh's profile so pretty with coding <3<3<3
