Quesse Anar Clan

Recommended Posts

This idea was inspired by the roleplaying site Wonder Why. I do not claim any of the ideas belonging to them (wolf species, title, and some locations) as my own.

 

Setting

 

The packs of Wonderwhy are located amongst a considerably sized island. In the North there is the unclaimed Tundra territory and the Mountain territory belonging to the Hellion Pack. Climate in the north is cold and wet for most of the year, excluding summer, when it is a bit drier. Prey is only found at the base of the mountains where the water flow is active and the flora is rich. ~ In the west, there is the Desert territory, claimed by the Babylon Pack, and the unclaimed Canyons. The west is hot and dry during the day, but extremely cold during the night. Though flora is limited to a few grasses and cacti, fauna is plentiful. ~ Off to the east we find the unclaimed Prairie territory and the Valley, inhabited by the Quesse Anar Clan. Streams flow through this land, providing its inhabitants with plenty of water. Flora is rich, and there is a large variety of fauna wolves can pick from. ~ All of the lands of the south are unclaimed, which include the Swamp, the Jungle, and the Cove. These lands are hot and humid, with a massive variety of plant life, but the only species other than wolves that are found here tend to be insects or birds.

 

Plot

 

The wolves of Wonderwhy have been in existence for several hundred years, and the land has flourished with their presence. Food is plentiful, relations between packs are calm, and there are new pups every spring. But their island has been discovered by humans, who have incidentally brought diseases and foreign animals with them. The Quesse Anar Clan has yet to be affected, but the Babylon pack is suffering greatly. Soon the other packs will be coming to the Clan for assistance, even though packs would normally adhere to the unspoken "Feed your own pack" law. In such a time of trouble, will the wolves prevail? Will they learn to accept each other and band together to fight off the humans? Or will yet another territory be taken over by the humans?

 

Bestiary

Hares - Herbivores found in the northern, eastern, and occasionally southern lands. Relatively easy to catch, often a wolf's first catch.

Elk - Herbivores found in the northern and eastern lands. It takes at least two wolves to take one down, but three or more makes the hunt much less difficult.

Cougars/Mountain Lions - A predator found in the northern, western, and southern lands. They tend to stay away from wolves, but if provoked can cause extensive damage.

Fish - Found in rivers and occasionally streams. The most plentiful fish is salmon, and they are found in all lands except for the western.

Lizards - Omnivores found in the Western and Southern lands. They vary in size, the largest being the most dangerous, and the smallest being the most difficult prey to catch. Medium-sized lizards are generally the prey of wolves in the Western lands.

Rats - A species not native to Wonderwhy; often caught stealing food from the wolves. A bite from a rat can bring disease if not treated.

Cats - Another species not native to Wonderwhy. They hunt the rats but are also hunting prey that is common with the wolves.

 

Rules:

1) No power-playing, god-modding, etc.

2) Please discuss sub plots with your fellow RPers before carrying such things out.

3) We don't need more than one dramatic issue at a time.

4) When packs meet, they tend to fight. Unless your character is extremely brave and friendly, they will be at least cautious around other packs.

5) You will not always be successful in a hunt -.-

6) Literate to advanced roleplay. Grammar and spelling is a must. If someone offers pointers, accept them.

7) No OOC drama, thanks.

8) Two character minimum, three character limit. You must have at least one character in a pack outside of the Clan.

9) Try to get at least a decent paragraph with each reply.

10) If I think of any more, I'll add.

 

The Quesse Anar Clan will be the focus of the roleplay, but it is preferable that all spots be filled in all packs.

 

Rankings

 

Alpha Male & Female - These are the two big bosses of the pack. They are the ones giving the commands. Alpha males and females are also the only wolves that may breed. Any other wolves must leave the pack to breed and only return when their pups are strong enough to fight off other pack members.

(1/2 slots taken)

 

Beta Male & Female - These two wolves are just beneath the Alphas. They carry out the commands, leading hunts, attacks, etc. Occasionally, if the Alphas fail to produce pups, they are allowed to breed. Betas are highly respected amongst the packs, sometimes more than the Alphas.

(1/2 slots taken)

 

Warriors - Warriors fight to protect the clan, go on hunts, and train apprentice warriors. They are never allowed to have pups, but if they spark a romantic interest, the Alphas/Betas think nothing of it. Warriors are well-thought of, but not as appreciated as the Betas.

(1/3 slots taken)

Nurse - The nurse is the wolf that heals any injured wolf. The nurse is always a female and she is an ample magic user who has extensive knowledge of herbs. She tends to be the only wolf in the pack capable of magic, other than the Alphas. The nurse is very respected amongst the pack for her dedication to healing. She never has a mate.

(0/1 slot taken)

Apprentices - These are pups that are weaned and around two years old, learning about their trade. They are either training as warriors or nurses.

(0/3 slots taken)

 

Pups - These are pups. They amble around the clan and learn the tricks of being a wolf.

Quick explanation of how the Volumes will work:

Each Volume will consist of a task and be around 500 or so posts long. There will be stats for each pack, including amount of food, fertility rate, and safety against disease. Once the Quesse Anar Clan has finished the task, the volume will be completed and the next one will be started. Wolves will age up as volumes are concluded. Pups will become apprentices, apprentices will become young adults, and young adults will become adults. Adults will remain adults for two volumes, then become elders. Elders will last for one volume before they pass on. Each volume end timeskips two years, thus adding two years to the wolf's life. So each wolf would live about ten years. The only case in which this aging is different is when a wolf is pregnant. She will give birth to her pups at the beginning of the volume after mating.

Quesse Anar Clan

 

Alphas

Wolf Name: Morgance

Gender: Female

Age: Adult

Pack: Quesse Anar Clan

Rank: Alphess

Appearance(try not to use pictures unless necessary): Slim build with long, slender legs. Her fur is thick and made up of various shades of silver, flecked with a few spots of green and yellow. Her eyes are a dark shade of copper flecked with gold. Paws are large, and her tail is long and fluffy. She carries her head high in the air, and her tail flicked up when she is around lower ranking wolves other than the betas.

Personality: Morgance is a prideful wolf. She believes she does no wrong, and becomes extremely upset when someone points out her flaws. The wolf only accepts the advice of her beta, snapping at anyone else who offers her help. She means the best for her pack, but is often stressed, and will take out her frustration by hunting alone.

History: Morgance worked to become Alpha. She was trained in the art of magic by the nurse until she she became a young adult, when she was a beta. The wolf continued her studies in magic, but ready to inherit her mother's position. She fought hard in each battle, often obtaining serious injuries, but always was healed soon enough to prevent scars. She was paired to the wolf Nautic, and when her parents passed on, the two became Alphas. Morgance is respected by her fellow wolves but her pride often gets the best of her, causing others to mock her.

 

Betas

 

 

Wolf Name: Cielo (pronounced like cello)

Gender: Female

Age: Adult, 5 years old

Pack: Quesse Anar Clan

Rank: Beta

Appearance: The colors first off for Autumn. Her fur is a mix of golds and reddish-browns that darken towards the spine while eventually fading to white on her chin, chest, belly, and the underside of her tail. Her eyes are a highly captivating gold that almost seems to be molten if one watched it long enough. her body is large, nearly as large as some alpha males, though she is less heavily muscled than they are for the most part.

Personality: Carefree and easygoing are good ways to describe Cielo. She is easy to get along with and cares dearly for others under her protection. That's not to say she can't be defensive or angry at times though, when push comes to shove, she is more than capable of playing the role of a hard line leader to maintain her position or to defend her pack.

History: Autumn came into her position as Beta by being able to muscle out the other competitors as well as being in general more likeable than the other wolves that were vying for the role. Now in her position she tends to relax and pick up any of the slack that ever gets by her alphas, but usually she works to take care to be a positive influence that encourages loyalty in the rest of the pack.

 

Nurse

 

Warriors

Wolf Name: Kaito

Gender: Male

Age: Young Adult (4 years old)

Pack: Quesse Anar Clan

Rank: Warrior

Appearance: (The one on the bottom left) The base of Kaito's coat is as white as snow, but his blue markings are what really prompted his name (Kaito means "Star"). Most of his light blue markings are on his tail, belly, scruff, and face. His dark blue markings outline most of his lighter markings and also highlight his pointed ears.

Personality: Kaito is an intelligent wolf. He knows many of the necessary skills to survive very well and has managed to even outsmart his mentors in tracking missions. He never strays from the direction of authority, though. His life is the pack; anything that goes against the norm is not something for him. His loyalty leaves him blind to corruption and lies, though, and makes him still very naive for his age. In every sense, though, he is the perfect warrior. Loyal, strong, and unquestioning. In the back of Kaito's mind, he's starting to feel that maybe he should think for himself, but so far it has had little to do with his outward behavior. He's still his same old self, but he has lots of room to move beyond that mentally blind wolf.

History: Kaito was the son of two of the warriors from the Quesse Anar Clan. He was born outside of the pack along with two sisters. One sister died within the first two weeks of their lives, but the other managed to hold on to life with Kaito and they grew up with their mother on their own. Their mother taught both of them loyalty and strength, teamwork and hunting, everything they could possibly know about life as a wolf without an entire pack to give them an example. They were both very knowledgeable when they returned to their mother's pack, earning the right to be part of the pack even as the children of a warrior. A few weeks after their integration with the pack, Kaito's sister broke her leg while she was out learning how to hunt with the pack. She didn't return with the other pack members, and Kaito has yet to find out exactly where she is. He was going to find her on that day, but he knew that the pack was a survival of the fittest kind of world. Trying to find his sister would make him look weak, so instead he pushed it to the back of his mind and focused on becoming more and more part of the pack. He has continued with that frame of mind up until the present time.

Betas

Wolf Name: Ashita (Pronounced Ashta)

Gender: Female

Age: 6 years old (Adult)

Pack: Hellion Pack

Rank: Beta

Appearance: Ashita The base of Ashita's coat is white, but her legs, tail, and back are black with purple accents. Her eyes are a sharp shade of blue.

Personality: Ashita is the kind of wolf that doesn't like to take stupidity or drama from anybody. She believes in survival of the fittest like it's a religion, and she lacks sympathy for those that cannot carry their own weight and live. Her cold attitude has earned her respect from some and disdain and hatred from others. She is very organized with her thoughts and plans, thus making her an excellent Beta wolf. She has a soft side buried deep within her, but it only comes out around pups and apprentices. She understands that they are young, but she also knows that they lack they intelligence and experience to follow her beliefs in survival of the fittest, so she is a lot easier on them.

History: Ashita was a daughter of the Alphas in the Hellion Pack before the current ones took power. She was a she-wolf amongst three mischievous and very annoying brothers. She grew up learning to ignore their ridiculous attitudes and focusing on her own growth within the pack. When she almost completed her time as an apprentice, her two elder brothers were both taken by disease. She knew that they had been finding strange plants and wandering away from the Pack's camp, so she understood that their stupidity would get them in trouble soon. Ashita took their deaths in silence and only spent more time learning the ways of the pack. She slowly rose in the ranks until she ended up as Beta, commanding the wolves and carrying out the will of the Alphas. She is now perfectly content in her position as a respected wolf. Nothing suits her more than being a Beta.

FAQ ~ because I've never used this concept before :3

 

1. Do you accept pictures in the "Appearance" section of the profile?

Pictures are acceptable, but I would prefer these to be photo manips or illustrations of your wolf, not a picture you just snatched from Google. Also, I'd like to add that wolves may have unnatural colors.

2. At what age is a pup an apprentice, an apprentice a young adult, etc?

Each timeskip is 2 years added onto a wolf's age. So a pup becomes an apprentice at 2 years, an apprentice becomes a young adult at four years (though they will continue to study under a mentor until they become an adult) and a young adult becomes an adult at six years. Since the adult stage lasts for 2 volumes, they become an elder at ten years, and pass on at twelve years.

 

3. How does the magic you mentioned work? Why can only the Alphas and the nurse use it in general? Is it passed on genetically?

The wolves of Wonderwhy believe that magic is a powerful thing that can be used to overthrow other packs unfairly. Therefore magic has been limited to the Alphas and nurses, to preserve the balance. Life is much more simple without magic, and since Alphas only go into battle when defending their territory & nurses only use magic to heal, it is deemed acceptable. It is not inherited genetically but instead bestowed upon the wolf at birth by one who holds magic.

 

4. How far apart are the various territories? I'm mostly wondering how long it would take a wolf to get from one territory to the next.

Each territory is about 45-50 square miles, so it would take a wolf anywhere from several hours to several days to get to another territory from the center of another.

5. What kind of diseases are affecting the packs besides the Clan? Are all the other packs affected?

Deformities, and lack of nutrients are being received from mother's milk, causing wolves to have weak immune systems and die early.

 

6. Are "loner wolves" allowed?

Perhaps later in the RP, but loners haven't done well in other RPs like this.

 

7. How do litter sizes work?

The beginning size for a litter is 4, so if the fertility rate is, say, 50%, two pups would be born. The pups are playable as soon as the parents decide they are weaned.
