History: Runa was born off of Anikira to a small pack of mostly other Northern Rocky Mountain Wolves. Her parents were the breeding alpha pair, and had been for much of the pack's existence. She was their second litter, and many of her older siblings had either left in search of a mate or were still in the pack almost adults now. She had four siblings in her litter, and she got along decently with all of them - like most pups she was curious, eager, and a handful.
Being born and raised in a pack she faced no real trauma for the first year of her life, and learned how to function within a unit from a very young age, and since much of the pack was family or very close she developed a deep trust for wolves within her pack. During her first year she learned how to hunt, and survive; due to her large size she was also trained more extensively how to fight. She didn't love fighting in the way that some wolves within her pack did, however she did love her pack - for awhile she thought that was what determined her worth.
The next year her parents birthed a litter, she had remained with the pack for another year. When she finally met her younger siblings she was astonished that there was only one. The rest had either been stillborn or died at a very young age. The one remaining was her younger brother, and he was named Ragnar to give him strength. As a single pup he had an adoring older sister whose sole purpose in life became to protect her brother. She no longer needed to fight to prove who she was, or because that was all she was good for. Her brother became everything, and she was more than willing to compensate for all the siblings he didn't have. When he reached one year and out-sized her she continued her protective streak. While she was content to remain in their small pack Ragnar wanted to travel.
Severing ties with their family they began to travel. While traveling they were more loners than rogues - avoiding packs' borders, and simply moving around. When the reached Aesir's territory however they were ready to settle down after only one or two months of wandering. Much of this was due to the injuries that Runa sustained after fighting off a Cougar from a kill the two had made. She had tried to shield her brother from most of the attack resulting in the scars across her muzzle, but luckily nothing was fatal and most of it would heal quickly.
Once they joined Aesir they both became warriors, Runa slightly older and more experienced, but as a pair they worked extremely well together despite her protective streak and his competitive spirit. It was there that Runa learned about the gods; while she participated in all the ceremonies and respected all of the gods she favored Nathrir and Loknir. When the fire spread Ragnar was caught within and Runa refused to leave without him, finding him she led him a different way out of the fire, but she was burned on her shoulders heavily from the fire. Runa had led Ragnar to a different place near their alpha but she had been unable to scent her and had been off a short distance. They too had dropped to the water, but in a different and less safe place. They landed on Anikira rested for awhile, but afterward were too weak to swim back to the land they had previously called home. Deciding to stay on Anikira they hoped some of their pack had survived and began to search for them.
Chivalry - She is a protector, not only of the weak but also of the strong. While she will fight offensively, she doesn't make a habit of killing for the fun of it. She is a strong and stable presence that is ready to do just about anything for anyone who hasn't done her wrong in the past. Sometimes she has to ground herself in reality, but more often than not she'll let her willingness to help get the better of her. She is most easily exploitable due to her sense of integrity and not hard to get along with as she is generally polite; however she has a strong sense of justice so as much as she is a defender she is also the attacker. Quick to pass judgements she is also quick to rethink them, and is usually willing to give anyone a second chance.
Loyalty - Runa was born into a pack, and spent much of her life in Aesir so she is well adapted to the pack system. Intensely loyal to both her brother and her pack she would never betray them and expects the same out of every pack member. She respects most wolves within the pack even those who rank below her, and is quick to rush to aid in any way she can. She can follow orders of those who she dislikes, but enjoys friendship just as much.
Expression of Emotion - Like most wolves she likes to socialize and she is average at interacting, and has a deep trust for wolves in her pack. She is ready to express most of her immediate and surface emotions like normal, and even some that go deeper. She is quick to share her joy, and will show sadness but not for extended periods of time, preferring to cope within a smaller circle. As far as hate goes she's quick to express distaste for specific actions but much less to specific individuals.
Quirks - She's really bad at hunting small prey. When she's particularly frustrated with an argument she has a tendency to laugh. She loves pups, and adores the eye color blue.
