Lurid is made of the most luxurious of fabrics, wrapped around the sturdiest and most feminine of frames. The woman's pelt feels as though one is running their muzzle through the very clouds, this is mostly due to genetics, though her grooming habits certainly play a large part in its texture. The girl is a sensual delight, moving from touch to sight, one would find themselves awestruck. Her beauty will come to be deeply envied and coveted in turn. A natural wonder, Lurid boasts a reasonably narrow muzzle and a sweetly sculpted face that oozes femininity. Her supple form curves and bends in just the right way, with her coat giving a highlight to the softly rippling muscles of her shoulders and legs. Her tail is always held proudly above her hips and she has a regal air about her that often gives others pause. She almost seems to float across the ground rather than touch it, her paw steps are always a whisper despite her dire wolf build. Lurid stands at 44 inches tall, weighing 185 pounds. When she speaks, her voice is a captivating melody. Soft and flowing, her tones often sound as if someone speaks and whispers at the same time. When she is angry it becomes a dual-toned nightmare to listen to, often capable of intimidating even the bravest of souls. Lurid can often be found singing in a beautiful contralto that could make a wolf cry or smile depending on her song, she can be utterly hypnotizing when she sings because of the dual nature of her vocal cords. A trick she learned long ago. Lastly, as a final delight to the senses, Lurid is scented like butterscotch and rum.

As for her colors, she is quite unique among the wolves of Boreas. Her skin would suggest that she is an albino, being soft pink and sensitive to the sun. As such she is often confined to the night, where she appears like a moonbeam on land. The reason for this would be her glaringly pearl white base coat, which is present on her ears, muzzle, throat, legs, underbelly, and the underside of her tail. An interesting color presents itself in the pale creamy yellow that takes over her brow, between her ears and down her cheeks, over her neck and shoulders, saddling her back and ribs, hips and the tops side of her tail. This unique shade of yellow is strewn with a silvery ash grey brindling that makes her appear to be carved out of marble and quartz. The strands of her fur seem almost crystalline, almost glittering with the same effect as freshly fallen snow in the light of the moon. This is due mostly to her coloring, as the hairs are translucent in nature, lending to the pale look of this beautiful creature.

Her eyes are easily the most beautiful pieces of art on the planet, at least in her opinion. The extremely pale lavender base color of her eyes has an almost holographic quality to them, reflecting more white back, making them appear to be lavender at the edges and white in the middles. Like this but without the blue. Lurid is well known for turning these holographic eyes into a look that would be deadly if expressions could kill. Her face tends to be rather expressive when necessary, though she is a master at masking her expressions when it is required. She is beautiful, deadly, and not one to be underestimated.
appearance
Positives:
- Lurid can be kind when she wants to be, though, admittedly it is not often. The wolves who do become close to her heart will enjoy bestowals of crafted items or jewelry, animal skins to make beds out of, or any number of other gifts that the devil decides to bestow. Sometimes a stranger will garner her favor, and Lurid will be inclined to show this by offering some random service or another. If it is within her power to give and she likes you, she will. The woman can be charitable occasionally. While she can be completely monstrous, the woman has a soft spot for young pups or troubled teens, often taking them under her wing. Many will come to know her as Mother, or something similar.

- Courage is something that is second nature to the pale demon, it is rare to find her scared or cowed, and shows in a raw determination to finish what was started. She exudes confidence in all things and will protect what she loves with a fervor that is frightening in its intensity. Carved by her childhood, the woman has learned from an early stage that fear is weakness and will only bring pain. There is a tenacity to her that would inspire anyone to aid her in whatever endeavor she happens to take up.

- Since she was young, Lurid has been obsessed with gaining any knowledge she can and applying it to her everyday life, she is quite adaptable and tends to enjoy luxuries in any place she happens to find herself in. Crafty and intuitive, the witch is possibly able to survive on a raft in the middle of the ocean. There is a deep-rooted instinct to survive to her that would allow her to live through almost anything, though she is not impervious to mortal wounds or illnesses. Still, her wit and strength aid her in ways that would seem impossible coming from anyone other than herself.

Negatives:
- No one likes to broadcast their inner beast...as much as Lurid does. She uses her smarts to outwit and manipulate others into doing the things they truly don't want to do. Conniving to her core, Lurid is the type of wolf to seduce and destroy another, if only because she was bored and needed something to do. The witch will openly flaunt her hold on another for any gain she possibly can, and isn't above luring someone's child away as an unwitting hostage. Her silver tongue is used as a weapon, and she will often attempt to talk her way out of perilous situations if she can. Her most favorite thing to do is sew doubt and mistrust among enemy forces, something she is best at.

- Along with that comes a moral standing that simply doesn't exist, if it will benefit her in the long run to kill someone, she won't hesitate to do so. Brutality is her mother's milk, idolizing a cruel and twisted father will do that sometimes, and she is known to torture her enemies for any information they have. Capable of the most sadistic and heinous acts, Lurid does not feel any remorse or guilt about doing the things she does. If you are not close to her heart, you are not even a blip on her radar. Wolves would be wise not to cross her, as she will not hesitate or ask questions, she will simply end them. Betrayal is not something she takes lightly, and she will rip out a throat with a laughing smile on her face. Anything and everything is on the menu when it comes to getting what she wants, from arranged rape of another to the brutal murder of innocents.

- Lurid is not known for her mercy, rather, the opposite. The devil will pretend there is a mercy to be had, then snatch the rug of hope from beneath one's paws and laugh in their face. Taunting and mocking her victim's pleas for help and for her to stop making her laugh as if there had been the funniest joke told. As a closet cannibal, it is not unusual to find Lurid playing in the blood and chewing on any of her hunts or the ones she kills, and if questioned about it she will get violent without question. Taking life gives her control over life, and has become something of a coping mechanism for her, though when she is young she has to perfect the art. She is capable of the best deceptions, keeping her cards close to her chest until the absolute moment when things come together. The woman will feign innocence and then attack another if they are not careful.

- There exists a vanity to the woman that seems to infect even the way she walks. While not openly boastful, Lurid holds herself in high regard, as most do. Hers just so happens to be a bit bigger than most. Insults are met with teeth, and she doesn't appreciate jokes at her expense. The devil is royalty and will be treated as such, therefore there is no play with her. The type to laugh at a joke then snap at the drop of a hat, Lurid is swift in her actions. Praising those who flatter her over the ones who do not, she is not known to be fair or gentle in her treatment of those who don't. Her dreams and motives come before all else, and she will do whatever she can to see herself elevated to her proper position.

History

Childhood (0 - 6 months old)
- Lurid was born as one part of a litter of three to the sadistic monarchy of the Amarix Dynasty, as the first princess in a female dominant empire, Lurid was named as the only heir to her mother's throne. She was taught many things as a result, such as foreign languages and how to fight to win. The empire was a vast one, boasting over fifty wolves under the reign of Gaia and the king Ouranos, and each just as darkly minded as their rulers. Growing up in such darkness tends to have certain effects on impressionable minds, and Lurid took to the daily cruelties her mother and father inflicted upon their enemies and victims like a duck to water. She wanted to be just like them when she was a ruler, though there was always one flaw in the heir. Lurid cared too much for the ones she trusted, for it was few and far between the child had anyone to trust. Her sister and brother were jealous of her position as heir and did whatever in their power to see her disapproved of and castigated. There was a slave girl that Lurid loved to play with and treasured her company above all others and when her siblings found out she cared for the girl through cruel trickery, they immediately ran to tell their parents. Lurid had to watch as her father had the girl torn apart right before her pale holographic eyes. It would take a few more deaths for Lurid to begin to understand, those she held dear to her heart would always be at risk under the rule of her parents. Lurid would then throw herself into all of her studies, beginning at the age of six months old. Her brother, Sanguin, would come to know the payment for taking action against her. As they were paired together during a training spar, Sanguin lost an eye. After their match, Lurid came to meet her brother in the healer's den and extracted an apology from him by force. Sanguin would become a loyal follower of his sister after this, and never again did anything out of spite. Morbid was dealt with in much the same manner, with much the same result although Morbid is more vocal when it comes to certain matters. Thus the undying loyalty of her siblings came to be, and the true makings of a queen took root in Lurid.

Teenaged Years (6 months - 2 years)
- As she reached half a year in age, Lurid discovered that her father had bastard children with two other women of the pack. Acting in her mother's honor, Lurid brutally executed the babes in their dens, sparing only one from each litter. These pups were to be raised until such a day that Lurid came to get them. She gave the mothers strict orders to only idolize Lurid in their minds, under pain of a torturously slow death for the pups in front of their mother's eyes. By now, Lurid was well known for keeping her promises and a secret like this would surely get to the queen if they did not obey. Reaching her first-year mark saw Lurid given lessons in politics and war, and thus began a year of intense training and grooming to become the next monarch in the dynasty. Everything was going well until a natural disaster reared its head. Fire swept through their home, destroying much of the pack and leaving only a precious few to carry on. The fallen included Gaia and Ouranos, leaving Lurid as the young queen. Taking what followers would go with her, the young devil made her way south to Boreas, hoping to hedge her bets on greatness here.

Adult Life (3 years - 7 years)
- Lurid turned three years old in the Summer of Year 15 in Northern Boreas, and to kick off that year she killed a mated pair (NPCs) that she had befriended after learning the female was pregnant. She killed them in order to kidnap their son, Kichi, and raise him as her own. Now, with a child in tow, Lurid is even more motivated on her quest. Teaching the boy as they go. Their story continues...
