Medusa is an oddity, that's a given. Both in appearance and personality. She bears the colors of dam and sire, earthen russet tones mixed with dark browns and blacks coat her scraggly yet feminine form with a skeletal coat of cream that uncannily resembles the skeleton hiding inside. It masks her face (the mask is separated from the markings on her spine via the brown of her coat), a telltale sign she's from the Asmodeus lineage as that mask is a throwback to her late grandfather Lucifer.

Eyes are dual-toned, a mix of sapphire blue and cobalt blue mingling flawlessly together to create a rich blend of colors, and when in the right lighting, may show a violet hue. She almost always wears a grin on her face, adding an even more creepy element to her appearance.

Despite her feminine sway, Medusa's coat is often either well-groomed or scraggly looking, though it mostly depends on her mood. She often smells like overturned earth and sometimes, carrion, which is a given considering her hobbies.

Always on the thin side, Medusa never seems to really gain weight no matter how much she eats. She used to stand at 37" tall, however, since Halloween 2021 + post acceptance growth spurt, (between the ages of 3-4), she has grown to stand at 41",however, she is not bulky in the slightest. Light and lean, she is quick on her feet and prefers speed and calculated cunning in her movements as opposed to brute strength. Her paws are average-sized, with legs like stilts. Her ears do appear to be a little big in comparison to others, but that just adds to her charm.

During her time in Habari, the look in Medusa's eyes has grown to see the world with distrust. She has a sort of wild look to her eyes as opposed to the innocence and trust that used to be there. Now the latter is a look that is seldom seen, and those who do get the rare chance to see it are those she completely trusts.

Accessories
Piercing 1: Bone piercing on the top of her right ear
Piercing 2: Metal piercing beneath the bone piercing
Piercing 3: Bone septum piercing
Skull mask: Wears this often
Feathers: Bundle of black & brown feathers behind her head, attaches to the skull mask
appearance

At first glance, Medusa appears like any other normal wolf. But delve deeper, and she's anything but normal. Thanks to being abandoned at an incredibly young age, She has many quirks and strange hobbies that to her, are perfectly normal. She tends to giggle at odd times, even during times where it might be considered inappropriate such as during conversation, meetings, or anything serious (or not so serious). This is likely due to her brain being wired differently, so to speak. She suffers from Tourette's syndrome, though luckily for her, her tics aren't so severe that she can't function. She blinks a lot, and her head often twitches to the left. This on top of her random, inappropriately timed giggling might seem amusing on the outside, but the woman hides more psychological warfare in her mind then she lets on. She has had no formal training or learned etiquette since her mother left her before teaching her anything at all, and her father died before she got the chance to meet him. However, during the Winter of the Long Nights, she met her deceased father in her dreams and has been learning from him ever since. It's possible she may eventually become more normal with the proper attention she needs to grow and thrive, but until then she's always gonna be some sort of weird.

It's not clear where her psychological issues come from, though they're likely from her father's side. She is fascinated with death and everything to do with it. She often ate carrion more often than fresh food because it was all she could really manage to get her paws on when she was younger. All her quirks and habits she thinks are normal considering she's had to survive and teach herself.

Medusa struggles socially. She doesn't know what's appropriate, struggles with social cues, and first and foremost, just doesn't know what's socially acceptable or not. As mentioned before, her brain is a little haywire so she may act fine and dandy one minute, and potentially aggressive, emotional, or a variety of other things the next. There's a myriad of things that she might do, but not even she knows what she'll end up doing. Her attention span is quite short since she also struggles with patience. One moment she could be talking to someone about something and then mid-conversation she'll be on a whole different topic. Weird as she might be, she can be a sweetheart or a raging monster depending on her interactions. She tends to be on a constant emotional rollercoaster, and one never knows what might happen next.

Loyalty? Honor? What the hell is that? Hell if she knows! She's done everything for herself and nobody else so she could survive, and that's all she's done so far is survive. She hasn't really lived, the world being too unforgiving for her so she never got a chance to just be a pup, either. That's not to say she acts like a grown-up because she's still far from that. She's childish, she can be selfish, and does things for herself. Since she never had a firm hand (let alone a guiding hand to help her along through the woes of life), she lives for herself and nothing else. It won't be impossible to teach her or for her to be loyal to a particular group or specific wolf or wolves, however. She does have the capabilities to learn, it's just gonna take quite a bit of patience among other things. Despite this, however, Medusa is quite friendly to those who haven't mistreated her, and she can be helpful provided she gets something in return.

Aside from all her other oddities, Medusa has another tic in the form of illeism. She often refers to herself in third person, and while it may seem egotistical or like she's placing herself on a pedestal of importance, it's simply the way she talks. Having lived on her own and with nobody to really talk to except for imaginary friends she conjured up, it's no wonder she talks this way.

Although Medusa is...strange in her own ways and wildly unpredictable, she can be a sweetheart to those who have made a friend of her. Every encounter and experience shape her, and so far, she's learned that she doesn't like when others talk bad about her and put her down, all in the name of being mean (calling her dumb, stupid, useless, etc.). She tries her best, and although she struggles with herself, she is aware at times, that she isn't quite normal and that she isn't the smartest. She's working on it, though with the help of her ghost dad, Azazel.

Since Medusa became enslaved in Habari after trespassing (and not knowing why trespassing was bad), she has had quite a negative experience. During her time in Habari, she's been widely ignored and seemingly invisible on most occasions. The only interactions she's truly had with those she is forced to live with, have been completely negative. She considers these wolves very mean and rude, and absolutely hates a select few (see the list below). For those she feels have done her wrong or really, really hurt her feelings, she may seek revenge and make them hurt the way she hurt, or worse.

personality
Purchases:
Small accessory: feather bundle (Bundle of black & brown feathers weaved into the fur on the back of her head, visible while wearing wolf skull accessory).
Large companion: Cougar (smoky black coat with silver underside & vibrant green eyes). - Umbra
Large companion: Wolverine (Has classic wolverine base colors with cream/white skeletal markings & red eyes.) - Nox
Offensive battle: Sharpened claw covers (Sharpened claws from another animal fitted over her own)
Defensive accessory: Armor made from a wolf skeleton (Basically the entire skull, spine & rib cage of another wolf, with small added bones on the spine that are sharpened at the end like little spikes fastened to her body with leather straps, and the skull part sits over her head enough where it doesn't get in her way.)

Medusa has a list of those she's had actual interactions with, and how she feels about them. These may range from friends, to potential enemies, to those she doesn't like and others she may want to really, really hurt! *Note this list in no way, shape, or form reflects how I feel about someone or their character(s) OOCly!
