History: Born to mother Calantha and father Rikez into Airila pack, Harpy had a supportive and loving start in life. Alongside her three siblings – Rowan, Lyra, and Sirius, Harpy is a rare breed indeed: half coyote, half wolf.
Her mother, the coyote, hailed from an island to the east of Anikira, and was born into a nomadic pack of shamans and story-tellers. The pack believed she would grow to be able to communicate with the dead given her extraordinary survival despite the odds. Once she matured, she found that she was unable to meet their high expectations and was scorned for letting the pack down. Calantha fled, swimming as far as she could and eventually reaching Anikira. It was here that Calantha met Rikez, a dark wolf with an even darker past.
Taught from a young age by his father than only the strongest survive, he was subjected to cruel and vigorous training. One day, driven by rage after his father forced him to wound his own sister, Rikez fought his father. It was a fight he narrowly escaped, fleeing for his life; forced to leave his family behind after being unable to best his father. It was this that drove him to the edge of his world, to the cliff he plunged off that marked the beginning of a new life in Anikira.
Personality: Harpy is a very emotionally driven canine, a trait which will be as much of a curse as it is a blessing. For the most part, Harpy is a bold, tempestuous individual who tends to feel every emotion as deeply and viscerally as it can be felt. This lends itself well to being able to empathise with her peers, another ability she will grow to possess in abundance. Due to her intense emotions, Harpy has the capacity to love very deeply and often will; falling in love with everyone and everything as she grows up, as though her heart simply cannot contain it all. This side of her is present the majority of the time, but no wolf can be sunshine personified all the time.
Other emotions, such as hatred, anger, and jealousy, will manifest just as strongly by Harpy, and she is not shy about them. Her wrath is just as strong and passionate as her love, only less freely given. Her temper, too, can be explosive, as she does not hold anything back. Luckily, given her spontaneous nature, she very rarely holds grudges, and her anger is easily left in the past. This can also be true of her affections, which will often go just as easily as they come. There is a wild and untamed quality to her actions, which as a pup she does not repress or restrict.
This mercurial temperament can make her seem untrustworthy or shallow, but Harpy would never intentionally hurt anyone unless she believed they were a truly evil individual. She almost always has the interests of others at heart, and even if she is not completely selfless, her compassion is plentiful. There are many sides to Harpy, all of which she wears guilelessly on her sleeve, but she is predominantly an enthusiastic and vivid personality, with an insatiable appetite for new experiences and adventures.
