Profile of Dio: Details
A large, sturdy wolf colored in varying soft tans, creams, and ivory that fades to pure white at his underside, it is accented sharply with occasional shocks of sterling silver that concentrate into a saddling of duskiness at his shoulders. Naturally, he is paler-furred in the wintertime and more golden come summer. His eyes are mismatched, the left rough orange and right turquoise. He also has a notable scar where his neck meets the top of the shoulder on his left side, and another, finer one almost-entirely around his neck. His bottom left canine is fractured in half and he has healing scars on his right front leg (up to his shoulder) and side of hip. (pic by magdalyn)
A creature of luck, ambition, and a sharp cunning when necessary (and he is appropriately motivated), he is an honest individual devoted to his cause.
[WIP]Preceding his birth, his vagabond mother found her way to an old forest pack's doorstep and joined their ranks. She offered the lives of her offspring for whatever they deemed fit in exchange for her spot among them. The pack, having recently found peacetime, could reluctantly afford it, and she offered the lives for her offspring in return. But, within the first few weeks, only one puppy survived: Dio. Then around his second month, his mother made a stealthy exit, effectively abandoning him.

Orphaned and with nowhere else to be, he grew up among the year's other puppies and scraped by for a middling status. Near his first birthday and after a long series of missteps, he was branded too much of a nuisance and ran off by the reigning alpha. He roamed for several months on the fringes of packs and in neutral spaces, making do with whatever caught his interests with an appropriately roving lifestyle. This eventually brought him into contact with Viviana Giamalva, an impressive female of status, and she led him back to her family's longstanding pack: Stavern Rise. He joined after fathering her a litter and courtesy of her renown in the family, Dio was remarkably well-received. Within the ranks of the Rise he soon met and bonded well with Viviana's younger brother, Matteo. He was a wolf groomed for success and affluence from an early age, and it showed. They became close in no time, which motivated and inspired him more than his previous endeavors ever had. He went on and lived comfortably among the Giamalva wolves—culminating with Matteo and Dio as alpha and beta respectively.
-vicious fight with neighbors then fire right after, then Dio's displaced via sea
-lost, it's bad. wanders aimless. the Rise's remainders fled inland, his offspring included
-meets the commander and finds Sleeping Dragon, joins
-it's good, settles in as gona, keeps busy and he appreciates this
-rises to wocha, gets close to Portia--eventually to be mates
-sires Wildfire/the commander's litter, and his own with Portia. born days apart.
-Sirio is strange, leaves Drageda eventually
-pack goes to war with Blackfeather alongside the Redhawks, overall it achieves little in the end and Drageda goes home
-pack fights a bear in Ankyra Sound
-second litter born, little later into the summer but he's fine with that
-Dalia chooses to leave the pack
-Heda is called away to war with other branches, Blixen rises to commander.
-late fall, Wildfire leaves suddenly, taking Sequoia (one of his youngest litter) with her back to the Redhawks, all becoming natrona
-Heda returns. Drageda stands strong, numbers grow. a split of the pack led by Blixen is in the works
-Portia goes missing, later found dead on the beach after heavy storms
