Ember has the rich colouring of a red wolf but, owing to her mixed heritage, is a fair bit larger than the typical red wolf. Her base coat is a reddish Tuscany which blends into a darker Cork covering her back and shoulders, as well as the outsides of her upper arms, fading back in towards her hands. Her muzzle is also “dipped” in this shade of dark brown, and it graces the backs of her ears. Her inner ears, as well as a short snip of a triangle on the bridge of her muzzle pointing towards her forehead are a soft Indian Khaki. Her eyes are a bright and clear Mint.
Lupus: In this form Ember is at her sleekest, with short, dense fur which both repels rain water and acts as insulation. Her ears are large and widely spaced on her head, almost resembling coyote ears in size and breadth, while her skull is somewhat broad. Her muzzle is wide at its base and tapers to appear more feminine, a shape accentuated by the layered markings on it.
Secui: In Secui form Ember is considerably bulkier, with longer, wavier fur which thickens to form a definite and noticeable ruff around her neck and chest.
Optime: Ember is tall and slightly broader than average, although she still possesses feminine (and some would say seductive) curves and facial features. She has an hourglass figure, although her torso is a little on the short side in comparison to her long legs. Although not hugely muscular, she's athletic and toned with a flat stomach and slender but sturdy limbs which indicate years of staying active.
In Optime form Ember's hair becomes wild, with substantial waves and curls, often sticking out in several directions. It's the same Cork brown as her upper body, but it fades towards Tuscany, giving the appearance of sun bleaching on the ends. It isn't allowed to grow completely wildly though; she cuts it to around chin length, though the strands are often uneven, and holds it in place with a thin leather band which crosses her forehead and tucks behind her ears. Her fringe is fairly straight across but choppy, with a distinct wave in it which is emphasized by the band which holds it in place. At the center of her hair band is a pale pink heart made of rose quartz.
In terms of clothing, Ember owns assorted items but prefers loose and comfortable skirts or dresses tied with a chunky belt which also features a sheath for her dagger. When working in the cafe she sports a short wraparound apron with several pockets.
Ember is gentle and sweet, a good listener but not shy with it. A very affectionate wolf who strives to comfort troubled souls, she can struggle to hold back that affection when faced with someone who’s uncomfortable with physical reassurance. She feels emotions deeply and passionately and isn’t afraid to show that, but doesn’t let her passion rule over her. She has a sentimental and romantic soul, and sometimes appears to get caught up more in creating perfect moments than appreciating the present for what it is. She’s the sort who might focus so much on making a fairytale out of her life that she forgets to appreciate what’s right in front of her. Prone to daydreaming, she can come across as absent at times, but is more perceptive than she lets on.
She does, however, have a darker side which stems from her days of being one of few females on a ship dominated by males. She doesn’t take kindly to bullying or crass humour and she knows how to hold a grudge, particularly against those who insult her, the Stormfall family or Midnight Shores. While she tries not to use them, she knows a slew of swear words in several languages.
She rarely talks about her past and at times seems afraid of it, opting to focus wholly (and sometimes to her detriment) on building the ideal future.
Ember enjoys acting out macabre and sometimes slightly disturbing puppet shows with the skull which she keeps around for reasons known only to her; only she knows whose face it originally wore, and that’s a closely guarded secret.
