Appearance

One glance at this behemoth of a dire wolf makes it clear to any lifetime resident of Boreas to who's family he belongs. Azure has inherited distinctive Fatalis traits, the most noticeable of them being his towering height of 45". He has as well inherited the Armada Warlord's distinct markings of white upon his rump and across his eyes, and his curved canines share Sirius' dangerous length and thickness. In structure he is near-identical to his aging father, likely a result of genetics as well as the similar style of upbringing both men have experienced. While Sirius' equal physically and of rank, the alpha pair have a wide gap in experience and wisdom. Even through his arrogance, Azure is clearly aware that his equal in combat, he is not.

Azure's pelt at it's base is a deep, rich brown which darkens into gloves of middling height upon each paw and leg. Beginning at the top of each black glove starts a sort of striping, which patterns upwards along his upper legs and thighs. His underbelly and the underside of his tail are darker in tone as well, though do not quite match the same depth of shade. Brief striping of this deep earthy tone repeats as well across his ribs.

Azure's underside grows darker the further up his chest it runs, blending into a blackened throat as well as a slender angular mask upon his face. The near-black tone appears once more to rim his ears, running across the crown of his skull and down his cervical vertebra in a thick line before branching out along either side of his scruff. Brilliant eyes of blue appear sharp and attentive through the darkened mask of his face, a shade not quite matching that of his mother or that of his father.

Across Azure's earth-toned body, eye-catching shades of green-blue are spread. These bright tones are inherited in part from his mother, though his own markings lean more toward the spectrum of green than hers do. More of this shade can be found upon the ruffles around all four paw pads, upon the tips of his ears, and the largest of this unique tint can be found in a wide saddle along his back and spine which spills downwards to cover a portion of his tail, thigh, and shoulder.

As an adult, Azure is thickly muscled and built for combat. Years of vigorous training clearly show in his frame, and while he has as many losses under his belt as he does wins, Azure continues to exude arrogant confidence in his stance. He appears relatively stoic in most situations, wearing a practiced mask for the sake of diplomacy and discretion. Someone who knows him well may recognize minuscule expressions of mild amusement, loathing, frustration, or distaste upon his face. While Azure is quite capable of enjoyment, pleasure, and even laughter, he contains them as best as he can around any wolf who he is not fully comfortable with.

Personality

Although he came into the world a normal child, Azure's outlook on life shifted heavily when he realized what gifts the gods granted upon his eldest littermate, Mortis. he learned very early how extremely rare it is for a winged wolf to be born, and has always felt overshadowed by the miracle bestowed on his brother. Azure's competitive streak developed further in the race for heir, his driving ambition being to claim the crown of his mother and father's pack and conquer the world in the Fatalis name. His want for power does not stop at merely the Armada, but at one point had extended toward Ashen as well as the world beyond it. As a child he would bully and harass the siblings he deemed a threat, doing his best to eliminate the possibility that any of them could take his path from beneath his feet. Regardless of his tunnel vision for power, Azure has always had a strong fondness for family. His sister Aslatiel was his favored sibling for the majority of his life, being one of the few wolves he felt he could be himself around, as she mirrored the darkness inside him best. His relationship with Mortis has been strained from the day he pushed the boy off a cliff to help him learn to fly, and though Azure explained many times that the intention was not to harm his brother, even he has seemed to have forgotten that by this point. With his newest litter of siblings, Azure remains for the most part apathetic. In the end, there are only a small handful of his eight siblings whom he finds tolerable.

Short-Sighted



His opinion of his mother has been rather low ever since he was a child, having seen her as too soft and fragile to properly lead the Armada. This relationship was repaired somewhat after her kidnapping, though he will never respect her to the same extent he does his father. It is more than likely that his change of heart stems from his own guilt in failing to rescue her rather than anything she did to earn it. Sirius is his role model in nearly every way and in his eyes, the Warlord was badly weakened by his unfortunate coupling with the slave-queen Zee.

As an adult Azure is much more aware of his own shortcomings. He realizes that his own issues make him a poor choice as a ruler, and hides them to the best of his ability. Regardless, he interacts little with the pack out of fear that they won't accept him if they know him too well. As a youth he drove many Armada members away from him, and while he has a goal to be accepted by them and earn their obedience and respect, he still is not sure how to go about it. His closest relationship within the pack is Hanako, the koi-wolf he brought into the armada as a yearling. She offered him subservience from the day they'd met, winning him over rather easily. There is very little he would not do for her, having inherited the possessive fire his father shows for wolves he calls his own. Perhaps one day his net of wolves will cast further than merely Hana, but for now, his fondness belongs for the most part to her alone.

As a leader, Azure does his best to follow the paw steps of his father with only mild deviations. He considers Sirius' softness to be the Warlords' fatal flaw and does not aim to mimic that kindness. To members of his pack he is reasonably attentive and an adequate listener. It is a struggle for Azure to balance, and for the most part he comes off as cold and uncaring, acting out of requirement rather than want.

In his attempts to parent, Azure's biases and lack of warmth become clear. He sees his children as future soldiers and treats them as such, all except Basilisk, his heir. Azure is not aware that Basilisk does not come from his own blood, as he was 'born' during the Long Night. Both Hanako and Azure were infected, though Az was suffering the mental form of the sickness. Paranoia, hallucinations, lack of inhibition, and a crippling fear of the dark had him banned from the birthing den. Hanako's own body was riddled with crystals and wracked with pain, there was no wolf of sane mind and body present for the birth of his children to notice the extra pup who'd been found outside the den.

Azure for all his faults, is incredibly loyal to those he respects. He would give his life for the few wolves who has earned his respect, but once that favor is lost it is near impossible to get back. A once-friend who he feels has betrayed him is worse in his eyes than an enemy, but it is born more of insecurity than of actual hatred. He is not a quick wolf to give trust away, and having that trust broken once gained is emotionally devastating for him. The greatest example of this is his siblings Indigo and Asla as well as his once-Empress and love interest, Venom. While he may appear to hate these individuals, he merely does not know how to handle the hurt of loss in a healthy way.

Nothing is ever good enough for the heir-turned Alpha and there is nothing he could do that would be too ruthless or cruel for him in his quest to empower and strengthen the Fatalis bloodline. It is only by the powerful influence of the Warlord that he reigns in this bloodlust and does not allow it to affect how he leads the pack. Aside from his shortsighted lust for power, there is a darkness within him that Azure can't quite conquer. He spent his youth with his sister mutilating and torturing animals and has very little respect for other creatures. Spilling blood thrills him, and often he finds he yearns to simply hurt someone though he doesn't know why. The only thing keeping him contained is the threat his darker past-times would have to his standing as alpha, and he keeps his extracurricular activities focused mostly on his solo hunts where he can do harm without judgment. His lack of empathy and thought for his actions has always been his major downfall, and as he's grown he's shown the need for an external moral compass to steady and direct him where his own fails.

History

Born Summer of Year 14 to Zeigeist and Sirius Fatalis, Azure and his three littermates are unleashed upon the world. A typical child, Azure is curious, driven, and even playful. It did not take the ambitious youth long to grow envious of the blessings of his brother Mortis, and at one point in time (deceived by the discomfort of his growing bone spurs) assumed he would even sprout wings of his own. A particularly important day in his early development was the day he sought to teach his eldest brother to fly. While his intentions were good, neither boy had much wisdom. Azure assumed it was Mortis' fear holding him back, and decided to push him from the top of a beach cliff to spark his necessity to take flight. Mortis received an injury, and Azure was heavily reprimanded for his negligence.
