Sturdy and strong, Brandr boasts a long body and strong chest on thick, sturdy legs and larger than average paws. His head is slightly narrower than the average wolf and tapers gracefully to his obsidian nose. Brandr's coat is of muted light, he's enveloped in a pelt of pale cream with light tan covering his face, back, thighs, tail and front legs that fades a darker tan on the tops of his front toes. The deeper tan also cloaks his back and the top of his tail. Brandr's pelt is accented with a coppery gold that marks his ears, his eyebrows and a patch behind his nose. It also marks the tip of his tail and leaves accents on his legs and sides. Brandr's eyes are a brilliant amber gold.

Brandr is a protective wolf. He's protective of those he cares about and protective of himself as well. Being big on family and pack life he is constantly worrying about security. This leads him to be initially wary of strangers and as such he can come across as stoic and cold at first meeting. Though, like the sun peeking through the clouds, as he gets to know others and grow comfortable around them he'll start to lighten up and be more outwardly friendly and even joking.

What others may not seen under Brandr's tough exterior is an inner struggle. Is he doing enough? How can he be better? Brandr strives for perfection and suffers from an inner restlessness that can make him irritable and snappy, especially when he's feeling taken for granted. Brandr is a wolf that holds onto things. He'll gnaw on a problem and often refuses to let go, dwelling on hurts long after others have moved on.

Brandr is a natural born provider. He likes to be useful and productive. He desires not only to look out for his pack and family but also to provide for them. This trait is the driving force behind his desire to hunt and continue honing his skills in hunting and trapping. He can feel some sense of peace if the basics of survival are taking care of and this especially includes food. Brandr is compassionate towards others and always happy to lend a helping paw. Although sometimes he may get irritated, he almost never gets angry and keeps his stoic composure as best he can. While his primary goal is to provide for those close to himself he is not above sharing excess with those in need, just as long as his pack and family are taken care of first and foremost.

Like the sun rising every day, Brandr is steady and sure. He projects a sense of competence, always seeming to know what he's doing, even if he doesn't. No matter how strong his emotions are he keeps them under the surface and comes across as level-headed, steady and reliable. Out of his siblings, Brandr was the dependable one who desired structure and security, leading him to adopt a sense of responsibility at an early age. It is important to Brandr's self-esteem not to let others down. When he feels he's failed in some way or disappointed someone he can take it hard and need a little reassurance to get him back on track.

A brave soul, Brandr is not easily intimidated, preferring to stand his ground when he or his loved ones are threatened. While a hunter more than a fighter, he'll still do what he can to defend his pack and has no problem using himself as a shield or distraction. No matter how shitty the odds, Brandr will put up a fight. Brave not only in battle he also doesn't feel the need to put on any sort of mask or acts for those around him. Brander puts himself out there, in his own quiet way, letting the world take him as he is or leave him. He will live as himself and not mold or change to fit others expectations.

Brandr is a straightforward wolf who is generally serious, however this doesn't mean he won't joke around. Surprisingly quirky once you get to know him, Brandr has a dry sense of humor that often comes across as teasing or deadpan. Usually it is those close to him that see this side, but occasionally he can be prompted to throw out a sly remark at a strangers expense.

Passionate when he's eventually prompted to speak, Brandr can sometimes be given to lecturing and his shrewd nature leads him to get right to the point. He isn't fond of beating around the bush. If he has a problem with someone he will take it to them. Brandr especially dislikes passive-aggressive behavior and those that seek to sugar coat topics. Give him the facts. He feels he is strong enough to face any truth, no matter how grim and he'd rather know what he is up against than being lulled into a false sense of security. Then he can prepare and with his courageous heart there are very few challenges he won't rise to meet.

History

Brandr was born in lands to the north of Boreas to the Wolves of the Dysmal Canyon. They were a small group of hardy wolves that made a living in treacherous territory. Used to the harsh conditions they were a fierce group capable of beating larger opponents and so they were generally not bothered. However, they couldn't' fight the disease that spread across the mountains and valleys and right into their canyon home.

It was at this time, when the Wolves of the Dysmal Canyon were at their weakest, that a rival group, the Bone River Pack, attacked and the Wolves of the Dysmal Canyon were either slain or scattered to the winds. Brandr's parents fled south taking him with them but they were unable to reconnect with any other surviving members of their group, if indeed there were any. Weak and wounded they would often scavenge the kills of other packs to survive though as Brandr grew stronger and his parents recovered they took to teaching him hunting and fighting and began a peaceful life as a small rogue band.

However, it didn't last long. One day Brandr's father caught and killed leaving him to be raised in the care of his mother. However, shortly after his mother began to fall into a depression and when he reached 9 months of age they separated leaving him on his own and heading south toward Boreas to start a new life.
