History:Far off the shores of Anikira, a powerful tribe of coyotes resided. A litter of coyote pups were born, however, the litter became ill with a terrible illness that had no known young survivors. The malady took a female of the litter, followed by a male, until there was only one little girl left, known as Calantha.
Calantha was viewed as special for her survival and her pack decided that she was blessed with the ability to communicate with spirits. It was too much responsibility, however, and Calantha could not keep up. This led to her being sentenced to execution as a sacrifice to the gods who she had apparently angered, however, Calantha's loving mother helped her flee.
When Calantha fled, however, hunters quickly pursued. Relentlessly following the coyote, she had no choice but to leave her homeland, and so she swam until a land known as Anikira fell beneath the she-coyote's paws.
In another land far off the shores of Anikira, another litter of three was born, but this time of wolves. The father of the litter was brutal and trained his pups to be skilled warriors. One day, one of the litter known as Rikez decided that enough was enough and turned on his father in anger at his treatment of his pups. The pair fought fiercely, but Rikez eventually fled with a terrible wound in his hind leg which healed but left a scar.
Being a loner was exhausting for the young male, so much so that it led to him collapsing atop a cliff. Feeling hopeless, Rikez threw himself off of the tower of rock into the churning waters below which took him to an island known as Anikira.
On Anikira, our wolf and coyote underwent a chain of events that resulted in them both joining Airila, a passive pack temporarily led by Arche. Despite being natural enemies due to their species, Rikez and Calantha fell in love, leading to them discovering that breeding was an option for them. Calantha went into heat and was impregnated by Rikez, leading a litter of four coywolves to be born into the pack; one of the coywolf puppies was named Lyra, who grew to be just as unique as her parents.
Personality:Artistic and sensual, Lyra is appreciative of everything beautiful, from beautiful sounds to beautiful sights. She is highly perceptive for details, able to notice the tiniest trill in a call or the slight way that a leaf reflects golden sunlight. Seeing or hearing beauteous art cheers her up, being able to lose herself in the image or song. To fit this, the multihued fae has an abstract mind, able to see more symbolic things in everyday items. She daydreams a lot, coming up with ideas and stringing them together when her mind is not occupied with mentally exhausting tasks—that is often.
Outside of the sublime tranquility in Lyra's head, she is a loyal, somewhat shy coywolf, preferring to stay with those who she knows rather than making new friends and being outgoing. She is not necessarily passive—should it come to it, Lyra can be very headstrong and defensive of her loved ones—but rather preferring peace and calm, allowing life to come to her rather than the other way round.
Family-oriented, this female is loyal to her family above all else. Although her loyalties do lie partially elsewhere, she will always love her family no matter what and will love being in their company. Despite being borderline awkward around complete strangers, she is the complete opposite around her parents and siblings. She is fully comfortable in her own skin around her coywolf kin, unafraid to show her true colours.
When something has to be done, it gets done. Lyra is a hardworking member of Airila, very much interested in excelling as a faithful healer—that links to her final personality trait.
Finally, Lyra will have an interest in healing, more interested in saving lives rather than ending them. She has no qualms about hunting since it is necessary for her survival, but would prefer to not spend her pack duty time around blood and flesh.
