Profile of Ruenna: Details
Rue is of average stature for a gray wolf her age, although she may seem small by the restrained way she holds herself. The Redfern has a somewhat ghostly look, her pelt a mixture of creamy white and champagne with washed-out markings. Despite being fully grown, Rue's tall, elegant ears, large eyes, and short muzzle give her a distinctly youthful appearance. Her honey-brown gaze is watchful and knowing, hinting to perceptive wolves that this wisp of a woman may be more than meets the eye.

As of October 6, 2019:
Ruenna walks with a heavy limp, and her chronic pain is obvious to any who observes her movements. The pain affects her ability to sleep, drawing circles beneath her eyes. Additionally, she eats very little-- any extra weight at all exacerbates her pain. The full affect is a rather thin and wan appearance, enhancing her ghostly semblance.
Although Rue's soft-spoken nature may sometimes have her mistaken for either, Rue is not a shy or fearful wolf. There is a quiet strength within her that will be obvious to anyone who chooses to look beneath the surface. Rue is serene and thoughtful, observant and perceptive, and her insight is an asset to her pack as well as any wolf who chooses to befriend her.

Ruenna Redfern was born to Red Fern Glade, a traditional pack that encouraged young wolves to develop trades in hunting and fighting. Rue participated in these training sessions reluctantly, not particularly drawn toward either trade.

Once Rue came of age, she caught the wicked eye of Sjorn, a man from a neighboring pack that was allied to Red Fern Glade. The youthfully innocent Rue was an easy target for Sjorn’s lewd advances. Rue appealed to her nuclear family for help rebuffing the man, but they could not empathize with Rue. Sjorn was a strong, respectable wolf of high standing; he was valued by his alpha and could provide well for Rue. In her family's eyes, Rue was lucky indeed to be the object of Sjorn's attention.

Sjorn became more and more difficult to avoid as the moons passed, and eventually he refused to take no for an answer. In a desperate attempt to defend herself and escape, Rue accidentally pierced the man's eye. Sjorn's eye would remain permanently disfigured and blind thereafter. His packmates called for Rue’s dismissal from her pack and exile from the all the surrounding lands. Rue’s parents were prepared to appeal to their alpha in opposition of such a harsh punishment, however much to her family’s surprise Rue accepted the penalty readily. It was better to quietly slip away than to remain in a place where she would eventually become Sjorn’s unwilling victim.

After wandering on her own for the summer months, Ruenna arrived in the Teekon Wilds and happened upon Liri Tonrar, alpha of Blacktail Deer Plateau. Ruenna joined the Plateau and rose steadily in rank, becoming Liri's beta. At midwinter, a coyote attack devastated the Plateau's caches and the pack was forced to disband. To make things worse, Liri and a few others went missing during the attack.

Ruenna and Kavik-- Liri's mate-- joined with a nearby pack called Swiftcurrent Creek and continued looking for their lost loved ones. Within Swiftcurrent Creek, Kavik betrayed the still-missing Liri by impregnating another woman, and Rue found it impossible to remain under his leadership thereafter. An opportunity arose for her to join a neighboring pack in a position of respect, and Rue became a Diaspora wolf.

Her time with Diaspora passed uneventfully until the point at which Ruenna reunited with Liri. Rue departed Diaspora and made plans to found a pack with Liri. Unfortunately, tragedy struck once more as Liri was badly injured in a fall. Liri's resulting amnesia rendered her unfit to lead and was simply too heartbreaking for Rue to endure. After making sure that Liri would be safe and cared for, Rue departed northern Teekon with the goal of starting anew in the southern lands.

Rue's third birthday found her alone and unattached, wandering the Tuktu Hinterlands in search of a new home. Rue met Towhee and Phox, and she shared their vision of establishing a family-oriented pack committed to raising the next generation. She joined with them to help them found Asterism Grove, and shortly thereafter Rue was promoted to the Beta position.

Rue had only just settled into her new position when the earthquakes began, plunging all of Teekon into fear and chaos. A sudden landslide within the Asterism Grove territory buried Rue. The following weeks were a blur of pain, fear, and confusion for Rue.

Rue recalls very little in the wake of the landslide. Her best guess is that she sustained a head injury and wandered out of the Teekon Wilds in her confusion. Rue does remember the day that the earthquakes finally faded, and she emerged from hiding to find herself in unfamiliar territory, surrounded by unfamiliar faces. She spent the next year in the care of a mated pair of medics. They helped her recover from her injury and regain much of the movement she lost in the wake of the landslide. In return, Rue watched over their children while they were away working.

One day, Rue realized that the territory she was exploring was familiar to her-- she had found her way back to the Teekon Wilds. She bid farewell to her medic friends and reentered Teekon, wondering what was left of her home and the wolves she had once loved.

Ruenna reunited with Phox and Towhee Redhawk, and she joined their pack in the Redhawk Caldera. Towhee invited her to move into the puppy den to assist in the care of her latest litter, and Ruenna became Auntie Woo. Phox took an extended absence from the Caldera, and Rue stepped up to the beta position as the pack's new Regent. Rue then ascended to Sovereign position beside Towhee, but she did not hold this title long before the Caldera was forced to dissolve.

Ruenna's next move was a bold one: she offered herself in marriage to the Imperator of a soon-to-be military outpost. Much to her surprise (and perhaps his as well) he accepted. Ruenna then became wife to Germanicus and Matrona of Mereo.
