"People always say/Life is full of choices/No one ever mentions fear"
this is me in the flesh,
taste the sky,
AGE: 3 years
HEIGHT: 21 in.
APPEARANCE: Being a slave has turned Calliope thin and gaunt; her fur is patchy and her skin hugs her ribs. Her shrunken belly makes her legs appear almost comically long. The fur that covers her body is a mix of gray and brown, getting lighter the farther down it is, making her underside and paws white. Cal's muzzle is a very light brown, except for the bridge of her nose, which is the same gray as her body. The fur on top of her body is always longer than the rest and has black hairs sprinkled through it. Her large eyes are colored a deep amber and are usually darting around like a cornered rabbit. The fur surrounding her eyes has a slightly darker pigment than the rest of the fur on her head, creating a very subtle raccoon look. Like many of her kind, her ears are large and long. Her tail reaches to her hocks and is usually pointing straight down, if not curled between her legs.
thoughts that make me go insane,
PERSONALITY: Calliope is an extremely timid wolf. Constantly worried about something, she is an eternal pessimist. If something can go wrong, it will go wrong, and if it doesn't, she worries about that as well. Order and structure are very important to Calliope and she almost doesn't mind being a slave because it provides those for her. She is very obedient, because she fears anyone with authority over her. However, she tries to stick close to wolves stronger or more assertive than herself, as she sees them as a means of protection. She is a poor hunter and an even worse fighter, which forces her to depend on other wolves. Calliope doesn't like being around pups because they remind her of her own, which she was taken away from. It is her goal to one day find them again, but fear of her old mate, disappointment, and her masters have kept her from trying.
all over my shoulder,
SIBLINGS: Myris, Thalia
HISTORY: Calliope was born into a small pack consisting only of her immediate family and Syne's sister. Her brother, Myris, was the largest and strongest pup and a bit of a bully. He would push his sisters aside and take whatever he wanted. Calliope soon learned to avoid him and spent most of her time with her sister, Thalia. Thalia, though smaller than Calliope, was the more outgoing and vivacious of the two. When Calliope was worried, she only had to mention her fears to Thalia to be comforted and assured of her safety.
When the pups grew older, Thalia was wooed away by an Alpha from another pack. Without her sister, Calliope's fears overcame her and she fell apart. Her family kicked her out and she wandered into new territory, where she was found by a young male setting out to start a new pack. Calliope joined him eagerly, attracted to his strength and ambition. She thought that with him, she would not need to fear anything. Eventually they mated and she gave birth to his pups. However, just over a month after they were born he brought a new female into the pack, one who had just as much ambition as he did. The male had only needed Calliope until something better came along. Now that he had a new Alphaess, he no longer wanted Calliope to raise his pups, lest she 'corrupt them with her weakness.' The pups were given to the new female and Calliope was dumped at Auktion Rock.
