Name: Alayah Shanti Blackthorne
Lycan Breed: Nabalons
Marital Status: Single
Date of Birth: 29/Jun/90
Place of Birth: United States
Sexual Orientation: Straight
Likes: Hunting and learning from the land are two of her favorite pass times, as well as star-gazing and wolf-watching. Seeing the changes in the weather also calm her nerves.
Dislikes: For being mute, she's rather strong willed and passionate. Because of such, she definitely dislikes when people try to take advantage of her or think she's handicapped. She's not a toy, nor is she fragile. Assumptions about her are a definite no, she'd rather be asked. Because of her muteness, she's learned to use her inner wolf more and feel vibes and emotions better; therefore, if she doesn't like you, that's probably because you have a bad vibe or there's a good reasoning behind it. Her instincts tend to be on the spot more often than not.
Fears/Weakness: Being taken advantage of is a big impact on her life since she's never been truly able to have her “voice” heard. She refuses to trust anyone with the “Pack Link” so far. Also; she's cautious of taller men and bear-wares per past experiences.
Allergic to Silver: Blood test results came back positive.
Profession: Sign Language Instructor

Eye Color: Hazel-Green
Hair Color: Dark Brown with Reddish natural highlights
Distinguishing Traits: Scar on left cheek bone.
Any other important Appearance information: Wears native paints from time to time. Has 2 tattoos. One on each hand.
Personality: Alayah is normally on guard and very watchful of her surroundings and/or environments when not in class. She isn't aggressive but will quickly jump the gun in order to protect herself. Most Mexican Red Wolves are born blind and defenseless; she was born mute. Honorable and loyal to whoever wins her heart of the wolf, she will stay by their side until the end. Since she can not talk, she tends to be in her lupis form often. Proper communication is difficult with most people so she uses sign language and practical animal behaviors or vibes instead. Only rare individuals and deceased family members have heard her voice through the Bond. She's a bit of a solo hunter, but uses her ears and quick reflexes masterfully since going off as a temporary rogue. Last known, she was wandering the lands looking for a pack to call home. To be without fears of others. She's also very sweet, caring and patient; considering she's lived her whole life so far as an outsider. Though she can be maternal and a good teacher, she can also be deadly, assertive and aggressive if provoked or when the time calls for it.

Alayah comes from a rare and endangered subspecies of the Gray Wolf, the Mexican Red Wolves that were prominent in Mexico, Texas and Arizona. Now her kind is mostly found in captivity, but her family was able to get her out before they passed of old age. Because of their characteristics, her family was very overprotective of her and the other pups until they were about 10 months; but persisted with her because of her muteness. Alayah had a hard childhood at one point because of such, until she was enlisted in a class specially made for the deaf, blind and mute. Ever since, she took a new view in life since her disability no longer hindered her.
She grew up to be a bit artistic in her own mind, and loves people and wolf watching. She spent many nights learning the land and the sense of emotion certain creatures or objects could project. Because of her thorough learning to try and gain approval of her previous alphas, she became quite the skilled hunter. She can pick up acute or quiet noises easily, making her a stealthy tracker as well.
To this day, when in human form, she still has problem controlling her inner wolf. Mostly because she's of age. While her inner wolf wishes to lash out and find it's mate, Alayah would rather enjoy life a little longer... Besides, she has yet to find a pack to call home.
Her personal background story:
Raised withing two packs, one she loved and one she loathed, she had a hard time fitting in with many her age. Because of such, she turned to hunting and making something out of herself. She grew to be an expert at hunting large and small game. All those long years of extensive training made her much larger than the typical females of her tribe, weighing in at about 5 to 15 pounds more of long and lean muscle. She also grew to be very resilient to her new alphas and their son, Aleks, after her parents death. The son, and newly claimed alpha, was very much known for his flirtatious ways, for his name was on almost all the lips of the tribe's women. A true shame for someone of that position.
After many failed attempts from Aleks, Alayah decided that without her family to hold her to the pack, she had no purpose being there. Declaring her leave with high hopes, she found it hard to escape as he'd made it clear he didn't want her leaving, nor would he give her his blessing. Running away or going rogue would have been her only choice then; Alayah took it.
Aleks made sure when she left she'd be shunned or rejected anywhere she went withing the nearby reserves. It was during one of her fateful 'walks through the park' that she accidental stumbled across a bear-ware. Contact with their kind for the first time left her weak, almost broken and with a scar she'd never forget across her cheek bone.
Barely making it out of the fight with her life, she was taken in and nursed by a straggler and his pup, Aufhocker, who was a great dane. She kept to her wolf form the whole time, though the human clearly knew she was different. After revitalizing her to full health, she became close to the human, Zackeriah, and his dog. She made sure to visit every so often after her 'release back into the wilderness,' making sure to keep other wolves or rogues off her scent and the friends that helped her.
Looking back, she was grateful for the fight with the “bear.” Well... maybe, not exactly... The distance it had covered, though, brought her much farther than any reserve she had ever stepped or pawed on. Ever since, she took it upon herself to just wander the lands and be as far away from Aleks' nose as possible. In doing so, she also ended up falling in love with the earth more and more every day and night.
Once she was far enough from any influences Aleks may have had, she began working with children and teens at local schools. She taught them sign language and sometimes helped with P.E. classes. She became very involved within the small town until it became time for her to find a new home again. She couldn't live amongst humans alone for too long, lest her inner wolf grow weary and depressed.
