History: Octavia was born to Amara and Sebastian (though she had not met her wandering father) with two other pups--Micah and Harper. The three have been kept away from the rest of Valyn since their birth, but will soon be shown to the female-run pack and introduced to everyone, as soon as their mother believes they are ready. Because of this seclusion, Octavia and her two siblings have grown very close, created an unshakable bond with each other that hopefully serves them all well in the future.
Due to her slightly tortured, inherited personality, Tavia would harbor some resentment toward her mother, though she still loved her. If Amara were to tell her of a way to heal her painful mind, to keep her from the dark place that she sometimes fell, she would certainly forgive her mother for bestowing her illnesses upon her, but until then she would always save a piece of her anger to direct at the white female.
Personality: Octavia has always been the smallest, but she makes up for it with attitude. She will meet mockery with fierceness, regardless of how much of a joke it may seem. An overreaction, perhaps, but due to her inherited disposition to shift wildly from one emotion to the other, it is not Tavia's fault. She can operate fairly normally most times, but will become enraged over certain things and incurably depressed in the face of others. Namely, when she is alone, she becomes scared and upset, unable to keep horrible thoughts from her mind; on the other hand, when she is around those who bring attention to her small stature (or other faults), she often cannot keep herself from lashing out verbally and sometimes physically.
The small pup will eagerly listen to all adults or elders when they choose to grace her with new information, but her short attention span and lack of memory do not allow her to remember everything, and she often unconsciously pushes some information out in order to learn more. It is random and can be very detrimental to her, but Tavia makes due with what she has, and before bed she will recite to herself everything that means the most to her: family, how to play and eat and drink, when to pipe up and when to silence herself in front of elders.
One thing she never could forget is her love of swimming; she has always been at home in the water, and would do nearly anything if the promise of swimming was involved as a prize. It had gotten her into trouble numerous times, but Octavia was so in love with the act that she has never remembered when punishment came as a result.
With age, Tavia would grow out of some of her memory loss and temper, but the sadness would never leave her. It, at times, would consume her entirely, leading her to a spiraling darkness that she felt completely powerless against. Very few things would bring her out of that place, though her family (in the beginning) would be the best medicine.
