Holdyn Walker

Age: 33
Gender: Male
Orientation: Heterosexual
Identity/position: Werewolf / Bolverk (if available)

The Appearance

Eyes: Brown
Hair: Black
Height: 6'2"
Appearance:
     Having Native American blood in him he shows signs of his ancestry while also having an American look.  The Native American in him is most evident in his long flowing black hair and the darker tone of his skin while his features such as his face have a more European feel.  Standing a few inches over six feet he has a well tones and muscled body.  Always in shape before the change, becoming a wolf only enhanced what was already there.
 
Were Appearance:



Beyond the Image

Likes: Hunting, Fishing, Camping (Not RVing, true good old fashion camping)
Dislikes: Vampires, police, guns
absolutely not's: None at this time
Talents: Martial Arts, good with knives
Character Traits:Firm, Dangerous
Personality: Holdyn is a dominant alpha wolf that is willing to do what has to be done.  He doesn't shy away from violence when it is needed but doesn't search it out.  He has a very strong understanding and acceptance of the pack life. 

Taking the chain of command very seriously he feels that everyone should know their place and accept it.  He has a pack first mentality.  If the law needs to be broken to do what is needed for the pack then it has to be done.  The law is the human's law and doesn't always apply to the shapeshifters.

The History

History:

At the time of his birth Holdyn's father was a werewolf and his mother a human.  The virus did not pass through the DNA to him and he was born human.  Shortly after his birth his mother was infected with the lycanthropy virus.  He was raised with the awareness of what his parents were by their pack up in Canada.  While he was taught much about pack life and werewolf life he was well aware that he wasn't one of them, that he was human. 

At a young age he took up martial arts as a way to gain strength and power.  He saw that the wolves around him were superior to him in what they could do physically and he always looked for ways to enhance his own abilities with the realm of human nature.  He took well to the martial arts as well as the use as knives.  Becoming very skilled at handling them in competitions.

After years of begging to be infected he was finally given the choice after his eighteenth birthday.  Without hesitation he accepted and shortly before his nineteen birthday was brought into the pack by his own father. 

After so many years as a human wanting to be a wolf, when he finally was one he experienced a world he had always dreamed off.  He took to it quickly, ingraining himself in pack life and working his way through the ranks as the years passed.  He learned to do what others wouldn't because he was determined to be the best he could.  Eventually rising to the position of Bolverk

When his father recently became Ulfric of the pack Holdyn decided it was time to move on.  Not because of any hatred or anger towards his father and mother but because of a desire to continue to grow and learn and hopefully rise in the pack structure.  He had no desire to challenge his father's authority in the future.

His father wanting to honor his son's wishes to leave began making calls, looking for packs that might be in need of a Bolverk with experience and dedication, eventually getting in touch with the Ulfric of Las Vegas.

-Steeples fingers-

We've recently had our Bolverk go missing, but I do not want to count her out just yet.  For now, you can have your character join the Las Vegas Pack as a former Bolverk of another city's Pack. I also know that second, third and a few other positions are definitely open. I find your character acceptable, since there are not many male wolves left that are dominant- save for the Ulfric.  If you would please post your character in Character thread, one of the GMs will then update the corresponding Active Roster.  Feel free to wander the UTBLOV Board itself.  Get to know your fellow players in the OOC Thread or jump right into the fray!

That's fine.  I had glanced over the pack list and looked at what was open and noticed no name there so just wrote that in.  But sliding into the pack with position to fill later doesn't bother me one bit.

Sounds awesome.  I would love to give you Bolverk right off the bat, but I just recently cleared the former Bolverk from her position. On the next Full Moon, you may be able to have your character challenge for a position.  That would be something to take up with Aiden, since he plays Ulfric. ^ ^

Henry Neill,

Age: 23.
Gender: Male.
Orientation: Straight.
Identity/position: Werewolf/Unknown.

The Appearance

Eyes: Grey.
Hair: Brown.
Height: 6'2".
Appearance: Taller than your average man, with a ramrod straight posture to be expected of an ex-Marine and the deeply tanned skin of an outdoors type. His loping stride has that certain indefinable swagger combat veterans possess, and his eyes constantly sweep his surroundings with an almost paranoid efficiency. Just about the only thing non-military about him is his hair, allowed to grow long enough to be put up in a simply braid, the bits just behind his eyes efficiently plaited and tucked back over his ears. His predominantly Scottish-American heritage shows through in his long face and stocky frame, as well as his penchant for using interjections in place of real words (i.e. "Ach" or "Psht").
Were Appearance:

Beyond the Image

Likes: Tough women, dogs, strong leadership, clear orders, fistfights, arguing, and motorcycles ("Real ones, not those hair dryer things."). His guilty pleasures are iced tea and riding country roads.
Dislikes: (Big) cities, Yankees, crotchrockets, police, being put in charge, being told to stop bickering during a friendly debate.
absolutely not's: Pretty much anything in my Off's.
Talents: Brawling, physical intimidation, gun use.
Character Traits: Loyal, tough, ex-military, not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but not drooling either. A model Texan.
Personality: Taciturn and cold or jovial and witty by turns, he has a touch of manic depression. Not widely territorial, but what he holds dear, he'll die for. Likewise, he is unambitious, but when he wants something, get out of the way or get ready for a fight.

The History

History:

Coming at out of Central Texas, Henry had a fairly normal childhood, apart from that homeschooling thing. Ever the escapist, he lost himself in fantasy epics and science fiction, as well as irregular walks in the scrubland that stretched for miles around his rural home. Later in his adolescence, he did a few semesters at a local community college, generally earning B grades, and a couple of A's in courses dealing with culture and history. Still, while his parents were keeping afloat after putting both his sisters through the same routine, he decided that he would earn his way ever after.

Given his family's history of service, speculated to stretch back to the Revolution itself, it was no surprise when he joined up in his father's service: the United States Marine Corps. Managing not to get himself blown up or shot, or falling to the deadliest of  Sand Land's dangers, extreme boredom, he returned to the States after two tours and flipped Uncle Sam the bird and got on with civilian life.

However, all was not well with our young Marine; like many other veterans, he had trouble adjusting to the normal routine of living in America. As a sort of therapy, he dusted off his old M class license and through himself into an environment more dangerous than any theater of war the US could offer: the highways of Texas. But even hours of riding down the Old San Antonio road would prove insufficient to end him.

After about a year of drifting hither and yon, an old squadmate called him up with a great plan: "Let's go cash in on Uncle Sam. Vegas, baby!"

Yeah, great plan. All he got out of two weeks of The Strip was a series of blackouts, hangovers, bar brawls, three parking tickets, and the loss of almost two thousand dollars all told. Oh, and a nasty bite from a lycan on a bet, the kind of gamble you only take in Vegas, while unspeakably drunk. He broke his "buddy's" nose over that one, seeing as how he'd started the whole mess.

And it only got worse, because after that, he wasn't exactly human anymore. A newly turned lycanthrope, unable to face his family because of the stupid nature of his infection, and when did it happen? Right when the local pack was falling all to pieces. When the only people who could help him were busy scattering to the four corners of the city and beyond. Still, never one to let adversity overcome him, Henry decided there was only one conclusion to reach: This Varian hombre was calling everyone to him, and those who didn't could either get dead or get the hell out of Vegas. He knew enough about lycanthropes to understand that not showing himself to the newly proclaimed Alpha would be as good as a spit in the eye, so he got an audience as soon as possible.

After a brief chat with the few Lukoi with any rank, the pack put him to work in an area he knew well, a mission that could be summed up as "Gather up the rogues. If they don't bend, fuck 'em up." Of course, they didn't send him out all alone, but set him to assisting the Bolverk as a strong right arm. This position became more permanent later when the pack made him Hati, Varian's bodyguard and a street enforcer.

Despite his relative 'youth' and inexperience as a werewolf, it made sense. His skills were well suited to the task; squad-level organization, a bit of wit, and a willingness to back it up with a gun or fist. After his adventures in the Land o' Sand, his ability to pick up on ambushes was sharp, turned even sharper with the heightened senses of his new species, making him an excellent bodyguard. Best of all he had no political or familial ties to get in the way of his job during the purges, and no resentments against Mengsk for his usurpation.

And hey, the pay didn't suck...

Ah, there is someone up! I've a couple of questions about this setting.

Is there anything you're looking for in werewolves, beyond menfolk? I see a few pack vacancies, but I'm only vaguely aware of what the structure is. I mean, I get Hati = Alpha's bodyguard and enforcer, all that, but where would a newcomer fit in?

Another thing is, Hamilton's werewolves aren't anti-technology or anything, are they? I haven't seen any mention of it, but that's a fairly common trend.

Well I can't technically answer your first question, since Aiden is in charge of wolves, and he may or may not have plans that I don't know about.  But from what I do know, we're looking for an increase in numbers, and these spots are worked out IC, so Aiden get's to decipher who's best for which position.  But if you have an eye on a position already, let Aiden know, and there may or may not be something that can be worked out.

No they aren't anti-tech, so you can have him have a cell phone, Ipad, etc for gadgets.

I would like to start by adding that I am happy as hell to have some more male wolves to the pack and if you two would not mind, if they could be "part" of the pack from the start of the game. We have had a TON of new comers to the pack recently and would like some established members to mingle.

We have a whole lot of she wolves and I am not saying that they are looking for a romp but I would like the male and female ratio to balance out to develop potential relationships and plot ideas.



The ranks within the pack are open, (except for those currently filled) but I am basically giving them out on first call first serve. IF one of you guys (either Winter or Deviant) want the position of second or third, I am going to ask that you are "part" of the pack. Which basically means, when Varian took control of the pack a few months back and he began to rally and gather the scattered wolves in the area your characters joined. (If you want to plot besides that we can work it out).

This is E, they're werewolves, of course they want a romp. Whether or not they want a romp with my lil' ol' Henry is a horse of a different color.

Added a bit of history, and just so you know, I'm working blind here. What I know about AB books can be summed up as "vampires, werewolves, chick. Good at first, then they turned into porn."

EDIT: I'll take third slot, no problem. Seems to me like a good role for an ex-Marine NCO.

EDIT2: I attribute all typos to the fact that it's past 1am and I'm turning into a Gremlin.

I am completely content altering my history some.  I could still stick with the idea of Holdyn coming from the pack in Canada, just have it that it happened months back instead.

I am open to taking any spot within the ranks.  I do however have a fascination with the Bolverk.  Always found it a fascinating role in the pack of Anitaverse.  Especially when Anita was made the Bolverk.  The idea that there is a role for someone to do what the Ulfric won't.

If however you would prefer one of the upper chain of command spots filled first I can do that to.  Holdyn is pretty flexible when it comes to where he fits in.

Offline AidenTopic starter

My previous Boverk has not been active in a VERY long time, so I will open that spot for your character Deviant. You can add this to your history if you wish...

When Varian began his take over of the Nevada area he basically proclaimed submit (to the new pack) or die. So as Bolverk you would have killed a few. The brutality was used in order to weed out the threats to the new pack and even after that was done some of the current pack members where affected by losing family members.

Any other current plot lines running I can go into later when you get a chance to familiarize yourself with the game, don't want to overwhelm ya.

Offline Winterborn

And I'm assuming that mine did the senior NCO thing and got organizing? I've already got something in mind for why he didn't go back to Texas, so he basically had nowhere else to turn, and in a "submit or die" situation he probably would've said "Shit on your orders," and got to work.

Offline AidenTopic starter

Sounds good to me. Since you are starting off established I'll add a few things.

Everyone busted their ass to get the Ranch (The pack house) up to work, skilled or not, everyone put in work to get the house. Everyone can live there, the place is huge enough to house everyone. The NPCs work the kitchen, the ranch itself has a stable which houses Don Minez (one of the older NPC members and guy who gave the ranch to the pack). There is always something to do, but everyone contributes differently. Don Minez is old school "everyone works, everyone eats" mentality.

Sophia (another NPC) is like "mama bear" so it really creates a "family" atmosphere.

Offline Winterborn

Muy bueno, I'm digging on this. The fact that Sophia is Katey Sagal... Mama mia!

EDIT: History finished, have a gander and tell me if it needs work.

Looks solid, welcome to the pack (two both of you).

Winter, feel free to put up your character sheet here.
http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=74017.0

I will update the wolf pack positions and active list when I get back on.
Feel free to get started whenever you want, There is lots going on at the ranch. The one that sticks out the most is...

A new face to Vegas is cashing her invite to stay with the pack, if you want to be the welcoming committee. Any other story related info I will mention it in the OOC.

Thanks to all the new males! Glad to see more faces.

Offline Moon Hound Hati

So... I've not read any of the books, but am currently glancing over the Lycanthropes article on the Anita Blake wikia. From what I understand the werewolves can turn into a honest to god wolf or a man-wolf hybrid creature (a.k.a. the more "classic" werewolf). Is any more knowledge, beyond what the wiki(a) can provide, necessary to participate in this game?

Offline AidenTopic starter

Not really Hati, I am the GM of the game and have not read the books.

Unless you have been a wolf for a very long time, we do not have many "hybrids". The current Ulfric himself has no hybrid form.

So the younger (Or freshly turned) wolves are restricted from this. We are not a very combat oriented game so it does not really come up a lot unless you find a player who wants to have a showdown or fight with (then it is all handled OOC, since we are not a system game).

Offline Moon Hound Hati

I see.

Very well then. I'll see if I can get a filled out sheet up soonish.

Offline AidenTopic starter

Sounds good, if you have any questions feel free to post them in the OOC or PM one of the players.
