Name:
Selwyn

Nickname(s):
  • Sol (Aceline)
  • Solar (Aceline)
  • Wayne (Mahina)
  • Westie (Mahina)
  • Sely (Mahina)
  • Sew (Torin)


Age:
3 Years Old

Gender:
Male

Rank:
Scout

..........


Height:
33 inches at the shoulder

Weight:
80 pounds

Dominate Skill:
Speed

Coat Color:
Selwyn's coat has varying shades. His overcoat/back area is a dark ashy gray verging on black. This extends down to the top of his tail and up to his neck and over his face, ears and eyes. The ashen gray melts into a lighter silver as it descends to his paws. As it reaches about halfway between his back and his belly, it shifts to a more cream/beige color. This color continues down to his belly fur, legs and paws. The rest of his tail and cheeks are this color as well. He also has a light brown muzzle stripe. His fur has tinges of light and bracken brown throughout.

Eye Color:
Dark amber ringed in chocolate brown

Physical Build:
Selwyn is no larger than the average wolf. He has more of a lean build verses muscular. He has long muscular legs and a thinner torso which add to his speed and agility. His powerful leg muscles and subsequently weaker chest muscle and weight contribute to making him not a physically strong male, but he makes up for this with speed.

Strengths:
As mentioned in the "talents" section, Selwyn is incredibly swift and agile. He is a tactician with a reactive mind and lightning reflexes. He is scholarly and intellectual and good for advice.

Weaknesses:
He is physically not as strong as an average male. He can also be quiet and pessimistic at times. He is guarded and reacts defensively to being questioned in what he considers a "too personal" way.

..........


Family:
Mother - Naera, Living
Father - Romaus, Living
Brother - Socah, Deceased
Sisters - Taryn, Living and Calypso, Living

Personality:
Selwyn, at heart, is very free. He is light-hearted, a teaser though not immature. He adores a good joke and utilizes a good deal of sarcasm. He's always up for a conversation, whether serious or meaningless. He loves exploring and wants to see the entire world. He hates being alone and values family above all else. These aspects of his true persona are very difficult to see due to his grief over his brother's death. He has buried his "twin self" deep under a new persona.

His new persona is that of an intellectual. He considers himself a scholar. He seeks the truth in all things, feeding his exploratory nature. He is neither overly kind nor cruel, but something in between. He often goes out for walks on his own where he reflects on various aspects of his current life. He is pensive and thoughtful, speaking with airy formality. He is not overly social and dislikes discussing anything personal. He can become very defensive when it comes to past and should he be pressed, will either refuse to speak or lie.

He will not speak Socah's name and prefers to speak philosophically. He does what he can to keep himself busy and aide his pack. His hard exterior is broken occasionally by distress. He fears water above anything else and hates storms. He refuses to come within ten feet of any large body of water (larger than a puddle).


History:
Selwyn was born in a pack far east of the Seekers' territory. His birth pack's territory was slightly northwest of the Sorra Mountains. Selwyn's parents, Naera and Romaus, were the dominant pair and founders of his small pack. Selwyn was born in a litter of two, a great sorrow to their pack due to the fact that Selwyn's other two littermates perished during puphood. Selwyn had a variety of older siblings, and an aunt or uncle here and there. His two older sisters, yearlings when he was born, were Taryn and Calypso. The two had bonded, as sisters often do, and were inseperable. However, their inseperability - the bond they shared - it could never compete with the bond Selwyn shared with his brother Socah.

Socah and Selwyn were different, a rarity among wolf kind. They were identical twins. Although rare, it was known to happen. Raeka's egg had split into two perfect halves, birthing Socah and Selwyn. The two were not only inseperable, but impossible to tell apart. They went everywhere together, tumbling through the grass in a tangle of furry limbs, or stalking swishing tails, clambering over fallen logs. At first, the pack members did their best to pick out personality traits, maybe a fluff of fur, that would assist in telling the two apart. Eventually they gave up. Socah and Selwyn, Selwyn and Socah - it always was.

Socah and Selwyn reached dispersal age and after a round of sad goodbyes, the brothers departed their birth pack. At first, the two had considered parting ways, but both knew in their hearts that something wouldn't be right. And so they stayed together, roaming and hunting in search of a welcoming pack. Seasons and months passed, leaves fell and grew. Selwyn and Socah took shelter during a particularily nasty storm, huddled together in a relatively sheltered clearing while they listened to thunder crash, watched lightning flash and listened to the wind howl through the creaking boughs of the towering trees. Dry dust became mud, crusting upon their fur.

Selwyn and Socah rose the morning after, wet and uncomfortable but determined to continue their travels. They eventually came upon a river, it's waters swollen by the storm. Debris rushed by in its tumulous waters. The once visible banks had been swallowed by the rising waters. Socah and Selwyn walked up and down the banks, searching for a shallow place to cross. They eventually concluded that any was as good as the other. Selwyn and Socah stepped together in the water, the furious current tugging at their soaking belly fur. Selwyn pressed forwards, Socah a short distance behind him. He gasped as the current, deepest in the middle, momentarily swept him off his paws. He regained footing, shouting a warning to Socah over his shoulder. Selwyn continued, reaching the far bank. He turned to find Socah.

Socah had vanished. Selwyn's eyes popped with fear. He raced down the bank, searching the swirling waters for any sign of Socah, who had gone under just before Selwyn shouted his warning. Socah finally surfaced, scrabbling his paws frantically to keep his head above water. He howled to his brother, his twin, his other half, to save him. His howl was cut off as his body was slammed into a boulder and he sank below once more. Selwyn watched in horror as Socah's unmoving body floated to the surface and eventually washed to shore.

Selwyn approached the body slowly, whining as he buried his nose in Socah's cold fur. Selwyn nudged his brother, but Socah never moved. With a heavy heart, unable to accept what had happened, Selwyn eventually abandoned Socah's body - leaving half of himself behind. Selwyn wandered, changing from the light hearted teaser he had once been. He devoted himself to scholarly pursuits, changing himself in the hope that one day he would be complete - and not just half of a twin.

Selwyn eventually encountered The Seekers where he now resides.

yeah, not questioning that.

But he doesn't belong in Unstoppable by Kat Deluna and Let it Rock by Kevin Rudolf, he ruins those ones.

Add Westie to the nickname list btw.. xD
