Memento Mori is a woman of respectable height and size being extra-large and standing at forty-two inches tall. While she is not quite as tall as either of her dire-sized parents she is still pretty tall for a lady. She bears a lighter, more feminine build that focuses more on being swift than strong. She bears black flesh and darker still black nails. Her eyes, much like those of her grandfather Ganta, are a pale, ghostly silver-blue that in the right lighting can appear white.

Cascading from her forehead and falling primarily off to the right side of her head is the woman’s mane - a trait she inherited through her mother and grandfather. It has a rich brown base of blended brown hues that seems to bleed into orange and then, finally, yellow at the ends of it. The long, hair-like fur is usually kempt, though it is no easy task getting her paws through it and keeping it that way.

From birth, the girl bears a pale form across her base coat. Her neck ruff and back will are bathed in browns in a sable-esc marking. Socks, following a gradient, will be the lightest near her body and darken down to that same mix of brown at her paws. This same style gradient can be seen on her tail which is almost white at the base and darkens down to the brown mix at the end near the tip. Much like her grandfather, however, Meme has odd colorations in her coat just like her mane.

These markings made up of orange and yellow, splash across her coat here and there. The first marking to be noted is a splotchy mask that is similar in shape to the mask her grandmother, Roza had. Orange dominates most of this marking with bits of yellow towards the outer bits of it giving it a deeper, more complex look. Orange, edged with yellow. Caps her ears, tail tip, and paws. On her paws, however, the yellow color dusts her toes as well, and not just the very end of the marking.

Scarring

[Fall, Year 14] Memento Mori gets Zagan Abraxas who leaves scarring across her back. This scarring runs from a little bit of the left side down further on the right side in the saddle area. These scars come from claws.

appearance

Sometimes a wolf grows older they become a bit different; they learn from their mistakes, and their past, and try to become something better than what they were.

Having never known her father, and having a mother who was barely there, the girl grew up fast. Her uncle tried to be there for her but, for Meme, the seeds of distance were sown in her mother’s collapse. While she has made a few acquaintances here and there, for the most part, the woman has been a loner… at least up until recently when a pair of male black-backed jackals joined her. With them as her comrades, practically the brothers she wished she had, she made her return to a land she had never had much luck with.

Meme is capable of getting along with others but it is harder to gauge her trust and loyalty until she really knows you. Will she team up for the sake of survival? Of course. But Memento Mori is guarded, cautious, and observant. Perhaps even a bit selfish, Memento Mori looks out for herself and “the boys” first. Not one for traditional laws and order she tends to stray away from the idea of packs, and is just a little bitter about a future that had never come to fruition. While Memento Mori had ambitions as a child, now she just wants to find a place where she can settle down and make a home. The idea of bands suits her fancy fine - their more relaxed structure gives her a sense of freedom while holding a bit of unity.

When it comes to doing what must be done Memento Mori does so without regret. She doesn’t have much of a sense of family values anymore and doesn’t put much stock in the idea she might one day find someone that will sweep her off her feet. Despite this, however, there are some things that not even the test of time can break for the woman.

Memento Mori has always been honest to a fault and that has yet to change. If you ask her something directly she’ll answer you, as simple as that. She can be merciful but also knows when someone can’t be saved. She walks a complex line within herself in what she should do and what is right. As much as she can claim the call of survival all she wants in the end Memento Mori tends to walk a lighter path in the end. A more cautious path, but the lighter path all the same.

History

Before Ardent

Memento Mori was born the single surviving pup of Philomena’s second litter. Raised to believe she was destined for greatness she had quite a bit of arrogance in her youth. As her mother started slipping more and more Meme started to wander more. She ended up getting in a maim fight with an Abraxas, the family that her mother claimed was responsible for her grandfather’s death. While there was some truth to the story Memento Mori later learned there was more to the death of Ganta, the downfall of Dragoste, and the start of her family crumbling apart.

Despite her uncle's efforts, Memento Mori eventually drifted away from Boreas, growing detached for a time from the world around her. She discovered she had no real ambition for leadership anymore, even becoming a bit bitter with the idea. She started to focus more on survival and less on being the perfect little surviving princess she was made to feel like by her mother. In the end, that was what brought Memento Mori happiness.

After meeting her companions, a pair of black-backed jackals by the name of Jacques and Rein, Memento Mori made her way back to Auster. They are like family to her and, for the moment, they are all she needs. She begins to roam Auster, longing to become familiar with the lands she called home once more… She returns to Ardent in the Spring of Year 18.
