Gavroche is just plain tiny. The wolf stands out no more than seventeen inches tall. He is extra-small by wolf standard, though that much would be obvious when there are some species of fox taller than he is. Perhaps because of his already compact size, the male has a lighter build than others of his species though not to the point of being emaciated. Gav has wide, doe-like eyes that are bright, healthy green. His flesh is black, darker than that of his ebony-colored fur, and his claws are off-white.

Gav is unlike just about any other wolf he’s ever met, save for one. This pixie-like wolf was odd enough with his puny side, but odder still are the feathered appendages that grow from behind his shoulder blades. Yes, Gavroche is a winged wolf. Though the wings are large they are not functional enough to support his weight in flight despite his lighter frame. They are striking to look at, however, with molted colors of reddish-brown, black, brown, and tan. His wings take on the appearance of the changing leaves during autumn and, as he molts, the colors shift around, never the same from one year to the next.

Gavroche’s base coat however is a snowy white - a color not found in the plumage of his wings. Each of his front limbs is a stocking of different colors with the left foreleg being brown and the right foreleg being tan. His back legs on the hand have stockings of black much like the entirety of his head. His eyes are rimmed with panda-like circles of white. His ruff, as well as his tail, are reddish-brown giving him a sort of calico-like coloration. While he does not have intricate markings his colorful wings more than make up for this fact and give others a reason to spare a glance at this pixie-sized wolf.

Scarring

[Before Ardent Return] During a storm sometime in Boreas before he is captured and taken back to Lyenne for public execution Gavroche gains a scar that runs from the front of his right ear and trails down the side of his head towards his cheek. This scar is caused by a sharp stick.

appearance

Gavroche is a male who has been through his fair share of things. He has seen the wicked of the earth he walks on and has known their evil deeds. He has walked as a slave, and as a wolf scorned by his kin. He thought he had lost everything, at least until he met his beloved mate, Bellamy. The woman has become a new source of light for the tiny wolf who, at the point that she came into his life, had started doubting that anything good could ever happen again. While he is not as happy-go-lucky and naive as he once was, Gavroche is still a good-natured individual. He has more of a patient, protective at times, father vibe now.

He is kind to those he meets, though more cautious than he was in his youth. He gives everyone a chance to prove their light or, once they prove otherwise, he makes a beeline to get away from them. Gavroche, unlike Bellamy, is not confrontational in the slightest. The male would rather run from a fight than face it, and to most that may make the tiny wolf seem like a coward. But when you are pint-sized, with your skills in healing and talking to others, would you want to stick around and become a chew toy?

While a bit suspicious of authority, and valuing his freedom, Gav does see the value in living with a group of like-minded individuals. He respects the laws of life, being one to offer aid even to strangers who may need it. He is one who is unfazed by mutations and the oddities of the world; he himself is one, after all. He is accepting of those who do not wish to do him or his loved ones harm and can be insightful if given the chance. Like his mate, Gavroche has flickers of self-doubt and self-hatred. He questions if he deserves anything good he gets in life, and sometimes needs Bellamy to give him a gentle bonk to remind him that he does.

Height Reduction

6” of Height - Six reduced inches of height under the max of 23”. This brings Gavroche to 17” tall. [Click]

Large Fantasy Mutation

Wings - A mutation that has caused two bird-like wings to grow upon Gavroche’s back. The wings have multicolored feathers and while they can be moved as extra limbs they are not functional enough to viably provide flight. They can, however, be used defensively as if raising a feathered shield. The only difference is that these can be injured. [Click]

Leather Messenger Bag - A leather bag Gavroche keeps and uses to collect herbs. Not incredibly comfy for him to carry, he often asks his mate, Bellamy, if she’ll carry it for him. [Click]

Religious Beliefs

Foi and Majofionism?

Both Foi and Majofionism are religions practiced on the continent of Lyenne - a place beyond Boreas and Auster. Foi is considered the mainstream religion, followed by the vast majority, while Majofionism is a lesser-known religious path and only followed by a few of the longest-lasting packs in the area. While it is rare that wolves may believe in both religions it is not unheard of. In this event, the Allmother and Allfather of Foi act as the overarching creators, and the Elementals of Majofionism are viewed as an equal power to the Divinities; the children of Celeste and Nox.

For the religion of Foi balance is the key to everything. All beings, regardless of status, have a second and counter to their existence, generally as a female and male pairing. Because of this those who bear twins, a boy, and a girl, are said to have been smiled upon by the gods themselves and that their blessed litter is destined for great things.

The God and Goddess

Celeste and Nox are said to be the first in creation… at least if you are to believe in Foi. There are none who know how these two came to be, or if both were merely just there from the start, in the great nothing. What is said, however, is that these two wolves created the world, the law, and brought their children into the world to keep balance within the world.

Nox - The Allfather - A male said to have inky black fur and white, pupilless, glowing eyes. He is a dire wolf that stands over even the tallest of their species and has a constant, solemn expression. He resides over destruction, chaos, and curses.

Celeste - The Allmother - A female said by some to be a lithe, albino figure while others have said she bears cream and tan coloration with blue eyes. A relatively small creature in comparison to her mate who is almost always smiling. She resides over resurrection, purity, and blessings.

The Divinities:: The Eldest

The first litter of Nox and Celeste is collectively known as The Eldest. Brought into the world to help manage the lives they created they are those that balance life and death.

Sola - she who believes in innocence - The female twin responsible for life. Said to be of lighter coloration with blue eyes. Dainty and pixie-like, she is the smallest of her litter. She guides the souls of the lawful and benevolent.

Akakios - he who holds a grudge - The male twin responsible for life. Said to have a coat that mimics the starry night sky, like his father, and pupilless eyes. Relies on a keener sense of sight than mere mortals have and is said to see through the eyes of all living creatures. Always watching, he monitors the souls of the chaotic and lost.

Charis - she who brings back the light - The female twin responsible for death. A gentle being said to have gray fur marked with white and silver eyes. She makes death a paradise for those who travel the benevolent or “good” path in their lives. She protects the souls of the departed in her realm for all eternity.

Erebos - he who ensures your damnation - The male twin responsible for death. A ruthless, sadistic wolf that is said to have gray fur marked with ashen black and silver eyes. He creates a Hell for those who have done unspeakable acts in their lives. Has two unnamed hellhounds that assist him in making sure no forsaken soul makes it back to the world of the living to be reborn. The evil ones become tormented to suffer in their own unique Hellscape for all eternity.

The Divinities:: The Keepers

The second litter of Nox and Celeste is collectively known as The Keepers. They were brought into the world to assist their parents and The Eldest with the inner workings of the world the living creatures they brought forth would be in. They work differently from The Eldest for while they are two sets of twins, the area each governs is different and can be crossed by any in their litter.

Mémoire - keeper of all you hold dear - The female twin to Eon and keeper of memories. Said to be the wisest of The Keepers with the fur of earthen tones and tired eyes of green. She is the reason every thought and every action of all living creatures is remembered or forgotten. With so many records to uphold, there are things she lets slip through the cracks, and some memories, that are better left forgotten, haunt the minds of those who do not deserve such a curse.

Eterna - keeper of destinies - The female twin to Abyss and the one said to be in control of fate. A silver furred being with eyes of lavender. While she does not predetermine your whole life she starts every soul with a path, a destiny if you will. As each creature makes a decision it is up to Eterna to continue to shape that path, to see how it grows and unfolds. What may have seemed a bright future may now be bleak, and what was once a lost cause may now have a shimmer of hope. She works without bias, watching the lives of the living unfold.

Abyss - keeper of the reality you know - The male twin to Eterna and the one who must maintain the world. His fur is a mix of earthen and charcoal tones and his eyes are a weary, faded red. While the others watch over the lives and existence of all living things his job is to bring about the seasons and the life and renewal of the world around them. It is said that when he brings calamities it is to purge and reimagine the world with new life so that living creatures may flourish again. He works closely with Eon to ensure that the world does not fall apart.

Eon - keeper of all that was, is, or will be - The male twin of Mémoire and the keeper of the sands of time with the fur of creams and tans and eyes of hazel. Working with all of his siblings, particularly close with Abyss, he makes sure that while time is ever-flowing things do not happen too quickly or too slowly. It is through his tireless work that all things, flora and fauna alike, are able to grow and age. He too is responsible for bringing the living closer to their time where he then passes the responsibility of their fate to Charis and Erebos.

The Forsaken

Creatures cast down and said serve as painful reminders for mortals of what may await them should they deviate too far from their path…

Delusion and Calamity - The lost twins - Whispers of a pair of twins born to Celeste and Nox, forsaken by their own for deviating from their path, bring the tale of Delusion and Calamity. What was once two siblings were taken and forced into a chimeric beast with two heads. In constant pain and turmoil, it seeks to corrupt those with already blackened hearts with insanity and malice. Their coming is foretold to be a sign of dark times, where many bodies will fall and blood will soak the earth. It is an ill omen to speak of them or their names.

The Elementals:: Majofionism

Unlike those who try to follow all the teaches of Foi when it comes to Majofionism, you are said to be led to the Elemental that personifies your beliefs. Those of strong will go to Earth, those of the benevolent path go to Water, those who are neutral or unsure of their path go to Wind, and those of the darkest, most destructive path go to Fire. Those who follow Majofionism learn from a young age which Elemental they’ll follow and, more often than not, that path is pushed onto them by their parents. Circumstances can cause a path to change of course but will a wolf ever tell you that they did not always follow in the pawprints of their Elemental?

Seethe - The Burning - A hairless wolf with darkened skin and deep brown eyes, said to have lost its fur to the very fires she controls. Seethe is the Elemental of fire and has a fierce, violent temper. Ambitious, willful, and a ruthless fighter. Those who follow much darker paths, especially the chaotic evil, will follow in her pawprints. Beware her ire - It’s as swift and unforgiving as hungry flames.

Hush - The Zephyr - A wispy-furred gray, silver, and white wolf with light golden eyes. Hush is the Elemental of wind and a bit of a finicky creature. Their direction can change as easily as the element they control though they tend to be the more neutral of the four. Neutral alignments follow her path best, especially given that she does not with violence easily. If pushed, however, the winds will blow, and her ‘silence’ will be the loudest thing you hear.

Serene - The Aquatic - A thin-coated wolf bearing opalescent fur and deep blue eyes. Serene is the Elemental of water and a calm, collected creature. Like Hush, he typically strays from the idea of violence making him an ideal path for the benevolent and lawful. Just be careful not to let the water ripple - even the calmest of seas can one day make the biggest waves.

Lichen - The Growing - A wolf bearing a thick, rugged, earthy-colored coat littered with small sticks, leaves, and cacked in dry mud. Bearing eyes of bright green and deep brown this Elemental of Earth looks like he’s risen from the very ground itself. Leaning with no particular alignment by default those who follow Lichen are those who let strong emotion guide them. Whether days of quiet growth or ripping the world asunder, the earth follows its path without hesitation or regret.

History

Before Ardent

Gavroche came from the continent of Lyenne, a land somewhat similar to Boreas and Auster in the sense it was made up of many lands and many different packs. He was born in the heart of the Kedieo Empire, the grandson of the Empress, Keno. His mother, Phoenix, was one of the “favored” children of the Empress and by those good graces alone, despite his puny size and the odd mutation he was born with, he was allowed to live. He was taught about the religion of Foi by his mother and follows it to this day.

The winged male was a target of his grandmother’s ire early on, however. His wings, said to be a curse of the gods by the crazed tyrant, were all the reason she needed to try and maim him as he neared being a yearling. Thankfully for Gavroche, he had help. His cousin, a dire wolf by the name of Melanthios stood up to Keno and fought her on Gav’s behalf. The end result, however, was her being maimed and both of them getting exiled.

Gavroche fled, meeting a companion, a rat, by the name of Houdini on the way. He traveled to Ardent, meeting several wolves. He survived the volcanic eruption, as well as being a slave for a period of time. Sadly he lost his companion during that natural disaster. After he was free again, however, Gavroche began to travel Ardent once more. During a storm, the small wolf got struck by a stray branch that left scarring on his forehead. He met his companions, Jessie and James, shortly thereafter.

Life would have been fine for Gavroche had Kedieo guards not come and captured him. He was taken back to be publicly executed but, as fate would have it, he was not alone. He spoke to the woman who had been brought for execution as well, learning her name is Bellamy, a follower of Foi and an ex-slave of the Empire. They speak throughout the night, and, by morning, Bellamy tells Gavroche that she has a plan.

Abusing the natural cocky confidence of the Kedieo line Bellamy challenges Gav’s half-sister as the executions are to begin. She challenges the current empress to a death match, and, due to the Empress’ own orders, none are to interfere. After Bellamy’s victory the citizens of the empire riot, banding together to chase off the Kedieo family. Where the line went after that is unknown… but Gavroche sticks with Bells after that, wanting to treat her wounds at the very least after all she’s done.

But, just as Bellamy fell for him, the winged male finds himself falling for the vulgar creature. He sees a soul deeper within that needs love, that is capable of love, and he falls hard. It doesn’t take long after that for the two of them to mate and, before long, their firstborn and the only pup of her litter is born. They name the little one Lucette, and, for a time, everything is normal.

In Autumn of Year 17 a hurricane hits the area where the family is staying. Gavroche and Bellamy are separated from Lucette and though they spend countless nights searching for their little girl, they don’t find her. They end up back in Ardent in Spring of Year 18.
