WELCOME TO TORVA
Breeding / Birthing:
There is no end to how cold it is getting, and there is only more winter to come! With the cold season comes extremes of ice and snow that can be painfully sharp on the paws in the north, even for the thickest pelts. Snow has been spotted in even the southern region's woodland cliffs and marshes.

|Cadmon Phelan's basics
||Cadmon Phelan in-depth
Name. Cadmon Phelen
Age. 2 (july)
Species. Timber Wolf
Physique. small and muscular
The first thing you see about Cadmon is his scars. He has many scars as reminders of his gruesome upbringing. There are six claws scars on his face in all. Two on his cheek, two on his muzzle and two on his forehead. On his forehead, near his ear, one can see the remnants of a gash that has healed over. His right ear is torn while his left ear is intact but often pulled back as a warning for any strange wolves. More scares are prevalent all over his body. They stand stark against his black fur. He has three long marks that run diagonally, side-by-side on his neck. His left shoulder bears a healed gash and three longer scars. His legs also display an array of long claw scars and scrapes. His ribs show three healed gruesome gashes from a horrific fight. The scars continue to decorate his skin all the way to his hindquarters.
Where his fur isn't broken up by scars, it's mostly pitch black as night as to reflect his somber personality. Also like the night sky, his fur shows patches of white like the moon and clouds. His cheeks are white, partially concealing the three scars there. Parts of his ears are also white; however, the tips remain black. The tips of his paws also shared this color along with a spot on his chest and the tip of his tail. His eyes are silver that stand out against his black fur that surrounds them.
His fur is very disheveled and there are patches on his body where there's less of it than in other places. His form is scrawny. It's not very hard for one to see the ribs poking out in his side. His legs look like they can barely keep him up.
But that was before Cadmon joined Alyxio. Now Cadmon is well fed, and since his fight training with Hythyr, Cadmon has gained some muscle and speed. His running has earned him some endurance and mental stability. The patches of fur that were missing have since grown back. His scars are still clearly visible, but he no longer cares for how they make him look.
Weight: 78 lb
Height: 25 in
Cadmon is not at all friendly. His small size has taught him to be tough in the world and not nice. It's not that he think's being kind is weakness, kindness just hasn't worked out for him. The abuse he has experienced over the past years has made him harsh and skeptical of other wolves. He won't trust anyone with anything. He can and will make friends, his friends just has to break through a thick wall to get to him.
Though he has been damaged, he is not submissive. He will fight for his life if he has to. He's not a good fighter, but he will fight and when he is desperate, he hits hard. He might take pity on a wolf if that wolf is in danger. And he might save that wolf. His past experiences provoke him to. He'll repel any words of gratitude with "Don't mention it... again... ever." But most importantly, Cadmon keeps to himself. And shuts all other wolves out unless they break through to him.
In general, when he communicates with you he is bitter and sarcastic, using his harsh personality to ward you off.
But don't let his harsh side fool you, when you become Cadmon's friend and earn his respect, he will become loyal toward you and stay as your friend for as long as he is breathing.
(WARNING: Personality will change with character development)
And it has. Since joining Alyxio, Cadmon has become more of a friendly wolf. He is not at all the social butterfly some wolves are, but he is now not as likely to bite your head off upon meeting him. He is always eager to help a wolf in need. He not afraid of a larger wolf and will happily accept a challenge from one. He still holds a bit of snarkiness from his old days, and if you have angered him in the past, chances are you won't be forgiven. He's one of the last wolves to back down from an argument, even if the argument is going no where. Also, due to the horrors of his past, Cadmon is a vessel for his own guilt. His past doesn't frighten him anymore, but in regards to his mother and Trocaire, Cadmon blames himself for the pain that befell them. Despite this, the little wolf works hard to prove himself and make himself a better wolf in the end. His determination and drive is a thing that his enemies should fear for it is the power source of his spirit.
Cadmon used to live in a pack where his father was alpha. For those day, his days were rich and wonderful. He lived under the tender care of his mother while his father began to teach him values associated with being a wolf. However, all was not well within the pack. A drought had struck the land and made it permanently barren. His father had urged them to stay and wait it out. But it was futile. The wolves became restless, and finally, another wolf, Fraoch, challenged his father and won the battle. Fraoch was a ruthless wolf who chased out his father. Raped his mother and killed her after the birth of the child. Fraoch raised the child as his own son, but rejected Cadmon as the omega of the pack.
Cadmon bore all of that for a time. His soul was nearly broken with the horror, but he held on to his hate for the rest of the pack and Fraoch. He vowed he would kill Fraoch himself. In the depths of Cadmon's hate, he found love. Often Cadmon had been beaten and abused by the pack warriors. Soon one of the pack's herbalists, Trocaire, took pity on him and began to heal him. Their love budded over horsetail and his painful wounds. Soon Fraoch saw this and struck out at Trocaire. Trocaire insisted on helping Cadmon, but Cadmon wouldn't allow it. He settled on Trocaire teaching him the different herbs, allowing him to heal himself. This seemed to work. Their love continued to grow in the lessons, but then Froach discovered this. He noticed the affection between them and had his warriors beat Trocaire until she was an inch from death. Cadmon tried to run to her, but Fraoch himself held Cadmon down. Even after the beating was done, they dragged Cadmon back to the pack den, leaving her to die.
This was the final straw that shattered Cadmon. He was only three months past his first birthday when he decided to leave. The grief of his lost love forced him to run away. He wandered the plains until he found Torva. His experiences with loss has built him an outer shell which no one can pass. It is built to protect him from wolves like those who abused him and wolves like Trocaire, who abused him indirectly through her death. But now, ever so slowly, his outer shell is beginning to crack...
