Soteria is the last of her kind, the last neko. The nekos are a subspecies of humans and have always kept separate from their distant relations. The few interacts between the two were frequently violent and bloody. Over time, the nekos drifted away and hid in distant valleys and mountains. Places humans rarely go.
The creatures became legend and then forgotten.
Their hidden territory is becoming smaller and smaller and every year there are fewer nekos. By the year 2016, the nekos are down to a single village and then there's a disaster. A flood washes away the village and leaves a single survivor. She is the last neko and while she has wandered the forest, she's never seen another. She's never even seen signs of their passing.
Soteria was hurt in the flood and as days turn to weeks, she grows weaker. She's unable to effectively hunt anymore and finally hunger drives her close to humans. She believes the camp is sleeping and she sneaks in to steal food.
This role play could go two ways. The man who finds her could be sweet, he could care for her and gently nurse her back to health. She could decide to stay with him and to have a life with him.
Or, he could be rough and ruthless. He could take her, like an exotic animal and make her his pet. He could collar and chain her, breaking her to his will.
