At first look, Fern is nothing spectacular. Her coat is not eye catching. No one color stands in stark contrast to another and yet… there is something elegant about her.

Standing at 30” tall, Fern knows to how to carry her medium build with authority. She can be fluid as water when she needs to. Quiet, powerful and graceful are all things Fern strives to be as she walks through the world around her.

As for her coat it begins with a light gray that is reminiscent of a foggy morning. It covers her legs, belly, bottom of her tail, muzzle and encircles each eye. The soft gray darkens, a shadow at twilight, and covers her head, neck, shoulders, back and top of her tail. The diffused shadow darkens further, smudging charcoal across her face, down her neck and along her sides. A soft, diluted gray dapples her sides, in between the medium and darker shades.

The colors mix and mesh, giving Fern a soft, gentle appearance. With a jet-black nose and pewter gray pads, the only shock of color on Fern is her eyes. Pools of soft aqua blue silently assess and weigh her surroundings.

The Good
First and most important thing to know about Fern is that she is a tried and true friend. It can be difficult for her to give her trust and form friendships at first. However, if someone manages to worm their way past her walls and into her heart, Fern will be their most trusted friend. Slow to trust but once she does, she gives all of herself to her friends. Growing up around Meadow showed the young Fern what it means to have to good friends. While she longs to be as trusting as her mother, Fern has seen too much in her short time to trust blindly. She feels that friends are worth dying for and so she is careful in who she gives her loyalty to.
While Fern may not be quick to trust, she is willing to lend a helping paw. If she sees someone who truly needs help or protection, Fern will aid them. Unlike her mother, Fern has learned to fight and take care of herself. She knows, all too well, that there is evil in this world and the innocent must be protected. Besides lending her aid in fights, Fern is not afraid to get her paws dirty. A hard day’s work can be the most the rewarding thing in the world. Spending a day harvesting food from fields is just as important as hunting down prey animals. If she had her choice, Fern would rather have paws coated with earth instead of blood.

The Neutral
Growing up with a mother who was impulsive, Fern has learned to slow down and look at all the angles. This can be frustrating as she might ask why something benefits her or what the rewards of a dangerous task will be. Taking time to think and explore every option can save lives. While it might frustrate other, she will not risk her or others’ lives unnecessarily. Death is permanent and she will not be responsible for get other wolves killed.
Unlike Meadow, Fern plays her cards close to her chest. Emotions are strange things that need to be bottled up. She does not share her feelings easily, if at all. It is better to bottle everything up and plaster a smile on her face. There is much she should share but Fern does not see the value of others knowing her story. This inability to share can lead her to seem detached or distant, especially when someone is hurt.

The Bad
Fern is hyper focused on her surroundings at all times. Due to past circumstances, Fern is always waiting for an attack. This can lead to others thinking she is paying attention to them. Many have labeled her as ‘easily distracted’ and written her off. The truth is, Fern suffers from PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) because of the events that surround her mother’s death. On the outside, Fern appears calm, cool and collected. Inside, her stomach is always twisting into knots and she fears the way the shadows look.
Fern holds onto the moment that her mother died. It plays over and over in head and all she thinks about is how stupid Meadow was. Others saw her mother as kind, naïve and sweet but Fern knows better. Meadow was stupid and that thoughtlessness was what got Meadow killed. Fern resents her mother’s views of the world and that, because of them, Meadow left Fern and her siblings without any parents. She resents anyone who willing places their lives on the line for stupid reasons. personality
