History: In order to fully explain Tike's early life, his parent's history should be explained first.
Kallik, Tike's mother came to Anikira basically mute. She couldn't speak in complete sentences and could barely feed herself. She went to Descai in search of a home because her own family cared little about her. Vorilye, the alpha of Descai at that time, accepted the dependent wolf into his family. Vorilye had a moment of weakness when Kallik went into heat for the first time. With the mating occurring out of the typical breeding season, neither of them thought twice about it. Why should it matter? It had only happened once. There was no way that anything would ever come out of it.
Well, Kallik realized that she had gotten pregnant several months later and decided to let Vorilye know that she had become pregnant with his children, Vorilye, did not believe her and was furious that she would do such a thing. He was certain that she had done it to grab power and was trying to pawn off someone else's pups as his in an attempt to rise through the ranks. In a fit of rage, Vorilye lashed out at the female, frightening her to the point she no longer felt safe in Descai. Kallik then fled Acerbus and ran to the Haishin pack. Akihra accepted her into her pack for the puppies' safety. It was in these lands that the puppies were born.
Early life for Tike was simple. His mother fed him and protected him in the dens. They were never wanting for attention or love as their mother was always there. Along with his siblings, Tike grew bigger and stronger.
When he got a bit older and was able to be outside of the den for longer periods of time, he enjoyed rough housing and romping around with his siblings. He liked to jump on them and wrestle with them and even playfully nip or pull on their ears from time to time. This was all fun and games for Tike and didn't mean any harm to any of his siblings. Tike liked to stalk things around as well. He enjoyed the practice of hunting. He often followed around frogs and even him mother and siblings to see if he could "catch" them. Obviously he was no good at it given his age and again, it was for fun and he didn't mean any harm to anyone.
Tike's early days were spent like normal puppy days were. When he wasn't eating or playing, he was asleep in the den. However, that all changed the day that his father found their little family. When Vorilye discovered that Kallik, had not in fact, lied to him, he was distraught. Coupled with a cougar attack that resulted in the death of his sister, Taqqiq, Tike, and their sister Kyra were wracked with sadness. Tike and Taqqiq opted to return to Descai with their father, whereas Kyra could not find it in her heart to forgive their father.
It was yet another stroke of bad luck when the alphess of Haishin, Akihra, attacked his twin brother. While it was an attempt on their father's life, it ended in the death of both Taqqiq and Akihra. It was then that Tike was the only remaining confirmed living pup from Kallik and Vorilye's litter. The male grew up under his father's rule. Over time, he grew into himself and became more confident. He bonded with Shayde who became a mother figure of sorts in the absence of Kallik. Everything was starting to turn around, and finally life was getting better. Tike turned to his father one day, asking for him to provide a new name as he felt that his mother had not only preferred his twin brother to him, but had given him a foolish name to prove it. From that day forward, Tike was known as Ryker.
Over the years, his father had several other litters, but he was always a favorite in his father's eyes. When the time came that Vorilye was prepared to step down as alpha, the pack was handed over to Ryker. Fate had struck once more, taking Shayde from the pack. While Ryker was devastated by the loss of yet another wolf that he loved, the fact that his father trusted him with his legacy brought happiness to him. He asked that his father stay by his side as beta to assist in running the pack in its day to day dealings as he was still becoming accustomed to the responsibility. Shortly after the death of his second mother, his father took on a new mate, Atriell. But not even a couple months after his newest siblings were born, Atriell vanished. His father took off after her, leaving the pack in his supposedly capable hands. Little did he know what awaited him in the wake of his father's absence...
Personality: As Ryker grew into himself, so did the traits of his mother and father manifest. Ryker is unsure of himself at times, much like his mother once was. But when faced with adversity, he is quick to put on a strong face and take the reins where others might not. His main goal is to make his father proud, which drives him to overreact in some situations where otherwise he might have been more rational. Ryker is no stranger to loss and pain. Virtually everyone that he cared about in his life was killed or vanished in one way or another, and so he is slow to let others in. He truly desires to find companionship, but he is unsure that he could ever make a stable relationship work because of his insecurities. While he does have many leadership qualities, Ryker will often balk when faced with adversity and finds it difficult to cope with failure. He is not much of a risk taker and would more quickly make assumptions to protect himself and his family than listen to others. His impulse often winds him up in bad places that he otherwise might not have encountered had he taken the time to assess the situation properly.
