Profile of Dio: Details
Appearance
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)
Personality
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. A force to be reckoned with, his presence suggests he knows what he's doing, and experience backs his scarsβ€”he is unafraid to prove his protectiveness.
Biography
β—Š A vagabond mother offered her unborn pups for a place in the old forest pack.
β—Š Dio was the only puppy to survive the first week.
β—Š Around his second month, his mother made a stealthy exit, abandoning him and fleeing.
β—Š Orphaned, he jostled in the ranks with the others near his age.
β—Š Eventually deemed a nuisance after many missteps, then chased from the pack near his first year. Young and headstrong, he adjusted well to a traveler's lifestyle.
β—Š Embraced the roving lifestyle for several months.
β—Š Met and effectively charmed Viviana Giamalva, an impressive wolf of status, then her family at Stavern Rise, who claimed a plateau near the sea.
β—Š Dio finally formally joined the Rise when he fathered Viviana's first litter, then grew close to her brother, Matteo Giamalva, soon afterward.
β—Š Matteo, who was groomed for success early, rose to alpha and with him, Dio took up beta thanks to his swiftly grown renown in the pack, even among the family.
β—Š Together they made for an effective lead, with Viviana's support as well. They bolstered the family, and its reputation well.
β—Š The Rise suffered a vicious attack from neighbors, and a fire started by lightning razed the woods just after. In the chaos, Dio was wounded and displaced by sea. Matteo, left dead.
β—Š Remainders from the Rise fled inland to distant family led by Viviana who was soon to whelp her second litter by Dio. Her sister, Elettra, unknowingly carried Matteo and Dio's whelps both as well. The fate of the leader's remained a mystery to the Rise.
β—Š Dio was lost, disoriented, healing, and left to wandering until he found someone called Thuringwethil, Heda, a commander of Drageda that claimed Sleeping Dragon. Eventually, he joined them.
β—Š With time he settled in to the culture there, and took up the role of Gona, the guardianship of the pack, readilyβ€”which eventually culminated in his rise to Wocha, the lead guardian of Drageda.
β—Š Sleeping Dragon awakens, and the volcano began to smolder. The wolves of Drageda were forced to evacuate and per their leader, they relocated close to the sea at a place called Dragoncrest Cliffs.
β—Š Along the way, he had grown considerably close to the pack's healer, Portia. Eventually they became mates.
β—Š Dio sired a litter for the commander's mate, Wildfire--to be raised as Heda's offspring with her. At almost the same time, he and Portia welcome their first litter. They were born only a few days apart.
β—Š As they grow, Sirio, his son, proves to be an odd fit among the family and eventually he leaves Drageda.
β—Š Portia and Dalia, their daughter, are attacked by an unknown wolf on nearby neutral ground. Guards are up appropriately after the fact.
β—Š The pack marched to war with Blackfeather Woods along the Redhawks, the pack Wildfire came from, to save her. Overall it achieved little in the end and Drageda went home.
β—Š A bear is encountered in Ankyra Sound, which the pack fights, and Dio suffers injuries and finds himself slow to recover.
β—Š Later into the summer, Portia and Dio have their second litter.
β—Š Dalia, their now yearling daughter, chooses to leave the pack to strike out on her own.
β—Š Heda is called away to war with the other branches. In her absence, Blixen rises to commander.
β—Š Late in the fall, Wildfire leaves suddenly, taking her own daughter Kiwi and one of his youngest litter, Sequoia, back with her to the Redhawks. Sequoia's siblings, Dacio and Opalia, remain, and Dio focuses on training them.
β—Š Heda returns from war, now known as Antumbra. The pack stands strong and a split, with a second branch led by Blixen, is soon in the works.
β—Š Neighbors called Rusalka settle in the cove next to their cliffs again, stirring trouble and raising tensions. They take a captive, fights break out.
β—Š Portia initially goes missing suddenly, but is later found washed up on the beach, dead, after heavy, devastating storms.
β—Š Heda commits suicide at the urging of the past commanders, jumping to the sea from the cliffs.
β—Š Tensions remain with Rusalka, Drageda's morale plummets and some of the pack splinters.
β—Š Dragoncrest Cliffs' Drageda leaves to return to Trigeda, Dio going with.
