So it's finally happening, Torin and Derecho are having their first litter! Blue and I have decided to open up the last two slots of the litter to adoption, which is where you all come in!

So some important information first, the pups will be raised within Lirim and will not be allowed ICly to wander beyond its borders unsupervised until a year old. (Out of character I encourage playing with pushing those boundaries as much as is in character for your pup) After a year old while it will be encouraged that the litter stays in Lirim neither parent will force them. In Lirim the pups will be raised as any other litter, they will not be afforded any special privileges than any other pups beyond one of them being named heir. Ranks and the position of heir will be something they will be encouraged to strive towards. The litter also already has three other pups Lili, Pàdraig and Lachlan.

Torin is Lawful good and Derecho is True Neutral so anything from Chaotic Neutral to Lawful Good is fine for the pups. Lirim is a lighter aligned pack and the pups will be raised to represent its values. Both Derecho and Torin will be protective and involved with the litter so expect lots of cuddles and play but also discouragement of evil or harmful behaviors. I understand IC development can shape a character but none of these pups should start out darker and will need ample reasons to become darker as they age.

While both Blue and I encourage finding and playing with plots for all the pups we'd like everyone to remember the family and by extension, the pack will not hesitate to seek retribution for harms done to the pups and if they themselves act in harmful ways will not be allowed off for free. Torin has a strong sense of justice and will not hesitate to punish his kids in ways he sees fit if they turn out to be behaving in harmful ways.

We also ask that these pups be active, nothing crazy but at least a few posts a month and we'll take extenuating circumstances into account, however, failure to meet activity will result in taking the pup back without warning. (This is your warning.) Setting the character inactive without talking to us first will mean we take the pup back automatically. If for whatever reason you'd rather not play the character anymore please talk to us, killing them off or otherwise getting rid of them without talking to us will mean any further apps for future litters will not be considered.

One last thing before we get into the fun parts, in regards to designs. Any designs provided by us/any offered up to the litter will be required to remain with the character, many were paid for by us for this and future litters, meaning if we take them back for any reason the design and any art of that design goes with them. Any design you provide for your adoption will go back to you in the event we reclaim the pup. Please be aware of this.

Okay! The fun stuff!

Names: All the pups will be taking their grandfather's last name Valentine, as for first names Celtic or Gaelic Scottish names are all on the table. [Lolaf desperately wants a son named Fergus]. Middle names can be a bit more open and are optional.

Designs: Alongside the designs provided below you are free to make/choose your own design. Please keep in mind that both parents are mostly Black/White/Grey but browns and reds are also in Torin's family line though less likely in these pups, with two pups already more red/brown I personally have a preference to see more Monochrome designs but it won't negatively affect any apps. All pups are eligable for 25% of any purchase of extra height up to 40".

RUN BOY RUN

OOC Name: Denny

Name: Carnonos Petrichor Valentine
Gender: Male
Design: 8 or 1
Alignment: Neutral Good

Physical Description:
One of the old gods walks on four legs, a remnant of old bloodlines revived out of place and time. Draped in mottled shades of rich cream and charcoal, Carnonos blends seamlessly into the masses of this world. His muzzle, cheeks, and eyes are covered by a mask of coal and ash hues, extending into a sharp point between stark, pale brows. The tips of his auds bear the darkest shades of warm grey that lighten to a rich charcoal at the base. This same shade of coal envelops his paws and stains the fronts of his hind limbs up to his thighs. His flanks, hackles, and the top of his ruff are similarly darkened, with his hips and tail being entirely dark. A shock of creamy hues engulfs the lower third of his tail and his heels, while staining his underbelly in typical lupine fashion.

He is handsome in a quiet way, enchanting in a subtle manner. It would be apt to describe him as athletic. His back and hips are rather broad with the lean muscles that wrap about his form. His shoulders are well muscled, those of a marathon runner. A thick, muscular neck extends into a deep chest and powerful forelimbs. His skull is quite large, boasting broad facial planes and a noticeable satigal crest at the apex of his crown. Sharp, defined cheekbones jut from his elegant facade where his thick muzzle meets his face. Carnonos' auds are large and rounded at the tips, filled with thick, dark fur. Rich carmine eyes gaze out from his dark features, a stark reminder of his ancestry.

Personality:
DUTIFUL: The male is bound by his word, and will follow through with any promises he makes. In that regard, he is incredibly reliable. He will come to take any position within a pack very seriously, regardless of its place within the overall hierarchy. When given a task, he does his utmost to ensure it is completed to the best of his ability. His goal to make his parents proud drives him to push himself to his limits to be the best that he can be at his roles.

CAUTIOUS: From a young age, Carnonos has been a wary creature. Bordering on skittish at times, he approaches everything with a mind for the potential dangers. As a result, he tends to look at all angles of a situation before making a decision. Considering all possibilities will save him from possible harm as a result of his choices, and he wants nothing more than to ensure the safety of those around him.

WARM: There is no denying the fondness that can easily be found in the male, though he tends to show it in odd ways. He is not the best at expressing himself, and prefers to show his affection and kindness through deeds. Often he will offer gifts, or spend time being close to someone as a way to show that he cares for them.

LOYAL: As an extension of his strong sense of duty, Carnonos tends to share unbreakable ties to those around him. By being part of a family, be it blood or bond, is extremely important to him. Without others around him, the male feels isolated and terribly alone. He thrives in the company of others, though he tends not to show it. Once he is welcomed by others, he cannot be shaken by them.

DETERMINED: There are times where others might be concerned about Carnonos, as he seems to have a rather one track mind when it comes to tasks he's been given or allocated to himself. He is not one to surrender or shirk responsibility under any circumstances, and only pushes back harder when faced with adversity.

STEADFAST: When something doesn't sit right with him, Carnonos won't hesitate to make that plainly clear. He doesn't shy away from questioning authority, whether or not it will get him in trouble. Instead, he wants to voice his thoughts and opinions when they pertain to an important topic or decision. He doesn't keep his positions to himself, and refuses to be anything less than steadfast in his beliefs and views.

STERN: Carnonos is a very no nonsense wolf. There is limited room for play in his life, as he is quite driven. As an adult, there is a very good chance that he will not get along well with younger wolves. His trademark expression might resemble a scowl, though he rarely feels anything remotely malicious towards others.

QUIET: In the day to day of his life, he doesn't speak much. He prefers to keep to himself, and won't voice his opinions unless they are thought out and fully formed. Carnonos is very much a "keep your head down and do your work" kind of wolf. He listens very well, by most standards. He takes to instruction like a fish to water, and thrives in a structured environment.

RP Sample:
His siblings had all disappeared into the den a while ago, tuckered out after a long day of play. Carrie wasn't sure he was ready to go inside yet. The sun was setting, and he was mesmerised by the colours thrown across the vast expanse of sky overhead. The longer he stared, the more vivid they were getting. Tail tucked neatly around his oversized paws, the boy stared balefully upwards. Dark auds shoved forward, he caught the fading notes of birdsong as the chirping died down for the night. Was the sky always this beautiful? Or was today a special day?
"Carnonos, come inside," his mother called. He took one last, long look at the sky. It was growing dark now, and he wished he could see the last dregs of colour drain away as the stars winked to life. Of course, he picked himself up and shook himself off. Plodding softly into the den, he saw everyone piled up and ready to sleep. A few pairs of eyes locked onto him, and he blinked back. His mother beckoned him over to settle in and get to sleep. Without a word, the young male wriggled his way into the pile of soft, warm bodies. Sufficiently buried under his siblings, with a foot next to his ear and someone breathing across his spine, the boy felt his limbs grow heavy. Night night.

Are you willing/able to pay for a pup pass? (And any other purchases required of the design?) -sweats loudly- maybe probably

OOC Name: Dragon

Name: Brannon Valentine (Bran for short)
Gender: Male
Design: My own
Alignment: Chaotic Neutral

Physical Description: Brannon is a wolf simple in coloration, though he is quite the handsome male. Standing at 40" tall, he takes after his father in height and build along with all the handsome qualities of his father, too. His base coat is slate gray with both dark and light gray (almost silver) markings. Dark gray extends from his nose, over his face and head, and travels down to the top of his shoulders almost like a hood. The points of his shoulders and the majority of his tail is also darker in color, while a lighter silvery gray trails down his entire underside, the insides of his ears, and underlines each emerald eye. His coat is fairly monotone, though it also shows he is Derecho and Torin's son through and through.

Despite his dull looking colors, Brannon is a male who is physically crafted quite well. He has a sharply defined muzzle that gives him a very chiseled look, though the fur that frames his face is a bit longer and shaggy. Likewise, his ruff is also quite shaggy looking despite his constant attempts at keeping it smoothed down, he just can't quite reach well enough on his own to keep it looking how he wants it. His legs appear long and slender, often making him appear taller than he really is and they compliment the rest of his body. He's not as heavy nor thick bodied as his fathers lineage, but takes more after his mother with a more slender frame. Despite this, his muscles are well toned, the male built for stamina and endurance for hunting and running long distances. His paws are larger than average as are his ears (think Balto), and his tail also appears slick as well. The only bits of fur that gives him a somewhat shaggy appearance is the fur that frames his face, his ruff, his elbows, and his thighs.

Personality: Brannon is a strongly determined individual. He hates failure and will do everything in his power to accomplish his goals. Failure isn't an option for him, and he takes it hard on himself when he does fail. Far from cocky, however, Bran is a proud individual, though it's likely this trait might wane should he learn humility. Learning how to be humble may very well be a trait he has trouble learning, but not impossible. He is extremely loyal to his family, often sticking up for them where need be and likes to spend time with them. Though he may have trouble outwardly showing that he cares, he is capable of doing so and may do it in ways that aren't always obvious. As a child, he is cautious and wary with strangers, but he'll stand his ground and is determined to not show any fear. He respects authority, and isn't too likely to break the rules unless it's for a good reason. If he sees his sibling leave knowing they're not supposed to, he'll probably feel the urge to follow if only to ensure they are safe. As a brother, he feels it's his duty to keep his siblings protected, after all. And who better to do it than him?

Bran is a respectful individual, he won't talk back to those of higher rank than him, nor would he disrespect those who carry a rank lower. He respects beliefs and values, even if he doesn't understand them. He tries to respect the decisions of others, his siblings especially, even if he doesn't like them. Reserved with his words, he won't always speak out if something bothers him, and instead, chooses to deal with his thoughts and issues on his own. This leads others to see him as a stoic individual, because he will often choose to keep troubling thoughts and feelings to himself rather than burden others with them. Strong of will and strong of character, Brannon is willing to drop whatever he's doing for the sake of others, and is always willing to fight for those he loves. He's a firm believer with his inner values, and will always try his best to reflect that. Honesty is his most valued trait. He doesn't like to lie and will always do his best to be honest, though he may feel conflicted at times...what if the truth hurts someone? He may struggle with personal feelings regarding when he should be honest, or when it's best to lie. Regardless, he's careful with his words and tries to put himself in the others shoes.

RP Sample:
It was their first day out of the den, and Bran was ready to explore their home! He bounded out of the den, tail wagging as he glanced back to see if any of his siblings would follow. Whether they did or not, he wasted no time in heading out to see who or what he could find. The world was a big place, evident by how vast the sky looked and how the valley seemed to stretch on and on and on...taking a deep breath, he exhaled before continuing on his mini journey into the rest of the valley. Everything was so fresh and green and...who was that? The young boy tilted his head as emerald green gaze spotted a big white figure ahead. He hadn't met anyone other than his mom and dad...or at least, not that he could remember, anyway. But if they were in the pack (he assumed), that meant they were friendly, right?

The stranger looked his way, and he suddenly froze and felt wary as the stranger approached. It was a large white male with a red mask and intense blue eyes. When he stopped, Brannon tentatively twitched his nose and leaned forward to smell the man, and once he finished doing that he glanced up to eye him. "I'm Brannon, who're you?" The big white male looked kinda scary...but he was determined to be brave. "Zell...I'm your grandfather," Bran wasn't too sure what that meant, evident by the way his head tilted and his brows knit together. "What's a...grand-farter?" He heard a snort and a chuckle then, "No, your grandfather," Zell repeated, "I'm your dad's dad," OH! Now that made a lot more sense! "Hiya dad's dad! It's nice to meetcha!" His tail began to wag, head turning then when he heard his own dad approaching. He glanced between the two of them, wondering if he'd ever grow as big as them someday. As he sat there, his grandfather started to tell him all sorts of different stories, and some of them made Bran want to someday be like his dad and his grandfather.

Are you willing/able to pay for a pup pass? (And any other purchases required of the design?) yep!

OOC Name: lackadaisy

Name: Siobhan Valentine
Gender: Female
Design: 7. 6 is back up
Alignment: True Neutral, subject to change via development

Physical Description:
a lovely little girl with a bright personality that shows, Siobhan is always wearing a cheerful smile on her face. what stands out the most is her positivity and airy laughter more than her favorable features. and she does have very favorable features. as a pup, she will be cute and small. smaller than probably some of her siblings at 34 feet.

eager to run and jump and play, she is slender; growing into nice curves as she ages. she knows she's good looking, even as a child, and can be seen softly teasing boys even at that age. like most of her siblings, she is marked more monotone than anything else. dapples and saddle make up her back, cascading down to blend in with her gray base. her eyes are a soft pink hue that sparkle with mirth.

as she ages, she will be a beauty. her fur care will prompt her to become vain about her features, though she will show a soft giggle if anyone compliments her.

Personality:
+ adaptable, affectionate, charming, dutiful, inquisitive, communicative +
positive description; Siobhan tries to be a good person. she is very social and eager to please others, even if it doesn't turn out good for her. she wants to help people and wants to be included, showing herself to be one of the types to play along rather than act out. she is agreeable and friendly, especially toward her family. she loves them all equally, maybe favoring her parents more due to their unconditional love of her. never one to purposefully harm others, Siobhan will become creative in all she does.

her major focus would be on hunting to help Lirim and navigation to study pretty things like stars. she is a wanderer at heart, though happy to wait until she's old enough to leave Lirim's land. she is creative, mashing plants together to 'paint' her den's walls and collecting pretty shells/rocks/etc to decorate herself with.

- compulsive, deceitful, inhibited, vain, picky, territorial -
negative description; as she ages, this personality will play a bigger part. innocently, Siobhan sees great stock in pack rules and following what her parents put down. due to their influence, she will be protective of Lirim and aggressive toward those who willingly trespass. whether or not she begins to loosen up as she grows, the girl will often rush headfirst into danger to try and prove herself.

Siobhan loves the thrill of the chase; this'll show as she begins to convey more adult feelings. flirty and playful, she unknowingly leads others on if they pay her attention. she can get competitive and easily jealous if they look elsewhere though, making her do some very petty things to gain their favor back. including sabotaging others. though she does not willingly know she does this. to her, its a game to be won and deeper feelings will take some time.

RP Sample:

"wait for meeee!" the pup would call after her siblings, tumbling from their parents' den. they were ahead of her but she was going to catch up! they all wanted to explore but she was just happy exploring with them. Siobhan didn't much care for what they did find; only that she got to go with them. ever needing to be entertained, the girl rushed after her siblings only to find them leaving her behind. maybe they didn't know? maybe... maybe they did on purpose! gasp! it was a test of willpower and endurance. they'd never leave her behind without a reason, surely? this was a test, she was so very sure of it. one she'd pass.

"I can keep going!" she'd huff to no one in particular, her little legs carrying her only so far before she rolled over with a sigh. oof. maybe not. she was too tired. "o-okay... go on ahead, I'll uh... I'll be here." cheering them on with them doing whatever they were doing. no plan of attack was stated. Siobhan was content watching them go further and further away. but... it was too far. "Mum! Papa!" she'd sound the alarm, turning on the spot to face the family den again. "they going so far! hurry!" wiggling her little tail, she'd spring forward to land on a patch of grass.

her worries instantly forgotten, she'd begin playing with the tall stock with a giggle.

Are you willing/able to pay for a pup pass? (And any other purchases required of the design?) I have like... zero gems at this stage so I'd need a pass lol

OOC Name: Kara

Name: Aryn Valentine
Gender: Female
Design: [Image: daz44fg-3afd4192-c8cb-43a9-9e1d-045d8207...uVhQdVnb18]
Backup design: https://i.postimg.cc/6QmnRFrq/aryn-design.jpg
Alignment: Lawful Good

Physical Description: 29" Medium. Light Build. Slender with pointed features. Medium length fur. Beaming eyes.

Personality:



Catching a glimpse of the setting sun or the linger aroma of a fresh picked flower is what this youngling lives for. An endless moment of serenity with loved ones surrounded by peace and harmony. A gentle smile flashed to a passing friend or the burn of a blush against her cheeks. Aryn is a creature of the moment, desiring nothing more then to take in anything the promising world may have to offer.

In the earliest stages of life Aryn is the burst of sunshine no one could dim. With a beaming smile and a little waddle into a shady den she seems to breath an air of happiness. The youth will be swimming with imagination and beg to listen to any and every story her elders may have in their arsenal. Learning of her roots and the great Wolves that paved the way for her family. She will also be quite the explorer, wishing to discover new flowers, paths, and animals.

With growth the babe will come to be quite the determined healer. Hoping to find someone to teach her of herbs and medicines. The drive for this would be the depths of her determination to help others and always be of aid. Despite her love of beautiful fantastical things she would never wish to be considered helpless. With a lack of motivation to be a warrior she will enjoy the concept of patching the warriors of Lirim up in time of need.

Aryn is lighthearted and joyous to the core but will turn rather serious if her family's well being is at stake. Perhaps the only time this smiling babe would ever bare her fangs would be in order ward of evil from her loved ones. Family comes first for this loving femme and next to nothing could change that. Though, with such a loving heart comes a desire for romance. As this beautiful flower would come of age so would her yearning for a galant male to swoop her off her paws. Aryn would never be blind-fully trusting to give her heart to just anyone but flirting never hurt anyone. She wouldn't rush into anything but deep down this hopeless romantic will desire a happily ever after.


soft . caring . respectful . loveable




RP Sample: Beaming eyes fluttered into view as slumber swept away from the youngling. The scents of passing small prey and the moss of her hollow tree hide away filled her dark nose. Aryn blinked the fog from her eyes as she lifted her head from two white tipped paws. A long yawn came forth as she shook her head slightly. Her short nap seemed to take hold of her with fatigue. The babe pushed herself up to a standing position and shook out each limb with a little wiggle of her form. A swaying tail swished at her rear and she ducked out of her hollowed tree to expose her small self to the world. The greens of the wide and blue skies filled her vision like a breath of cool air. A supple smile slipped across her lips and a tiny sigh of joy filled the air.

It's time after some consideration Blue and I have come to our conclusion and decided to give out our two remaining free pup passes, meaning whoever we pick won't need to worry about paying for them.

So without further ado: drum roll please!



Kara with Aryn and Lackadaisy with Siobhan! (Twins!) Can't wait to see these two in action. Please remember to have these girls in acceptance no later than by July 7th.
