Appearance: Null has always been small even for a Mexican Wolf, and was the runt of her litter. She stands at 22 inches at the shoulder in Lupus form, 23 1/2 inches at the shoulder in Secui form, and is 5'2" tall in Optime form. She is very petite and light-boned, with very dainty little paws. Her coat is the typical grey, brown, rust and tan with white face and underparts combination of a usual Mexican wolf (though her coat is largely brown), with the grey darkening almost to black around her shoulders, down her spine, and framing her face. A dark, wavering line extends horizontally from the edge of each eye into the dark fur framing her face. The tips of her ears and tail are black. She has had a ragged chunk ripped out of the outer edge of her right ear.

Null has very prominent pale cheek tufts and large dark brown eyes that make her appear adorable and harmless, and give her a kind, imploring appearance when she is not actively pulling an expression. This, combined with her long elegant limbs, light frame, and noticeably fluffy coat give her an endearing look that puts others at ease around her.

In Optime form, she wears her mane-- darker brown than the rest of her coat, ticked with odd patches of grey and sandy brown-- combed and long, allowing it to frame her face and make her look even more innocent. She usually has a single long braid tied on the left of her face, but the rest of her mane is kept loose. Her mane is naturally curly, and forms a huge waving mass around her head. She retains her prominent cheek tufts, and does nothing to trim her elbow and thigh tufts, choosing to keep her 'fluffy' appearance. She doesn't tend to wear much clothing, though she will occasionally wear jewelry or scarves for aesthetic appeal, and she always wears elbow-length fingerless gloves.

She always has a brown leather satchel filled with her various treasures-- largely various kinds of jewelry. She is almost always in her Optime form, and prefers her Lupus form after that; her Secui form is practically untouched.

She has a small amount of womanly curve in her Optime form, but it is completely hidden beneath all of her fluff. It can be felt if she is embraced or otherwise intimately touched. This fluff does not extend to her limbs in any of her forms, save for the elbow and thigh tufts, and her limbs are proportionally long, white, and sleek.
Personality:
Personality: While Null may look cute and harmless, it's largely an act. She's a thief and a sociopathic liar, telling whatever story she can to get her way, with little regard for others and no plan for if she is caught; which, unfortunately, is a common occurrence. Her lies and plans have a tendency to unravel around her and she almost always gets found out eventually. Thankfully, she doesn't tend to lie about things that have major repercussions for anyone but herself.

Null doesn't like responsibility, but she DOES like power. Null is somewhat inherently dominant, though not to the point that she has any real objections to submitting to higher ranking canines. She doesn't go looking or fights, but if someone gets her riled up she won't back down from one either, and this can cause problems if she gets up in the face of someone higher-ranking than herself.

Null enjoys company. She likes to surround herself with friends and shower them with affection. She is loyal to those to gain her trust and her love, and has a tendency to hand out affectionate nicknames. She holds grudges, however, and it can be difficult to befriend her once she has decided that she doesn't like you.

Her small size, mottled-camouflaged coat and inherent talent for stealthiness make her an excellent spy. Even if she is located, she doesn't appear to be a threat, and can often smooth-talk her way out of sticky situations. She isn't so good at fighting, though, and her tiny frame makes her vulnerable to other, larger creatures.

Null greatly desires as many puppies as she can have, though it is less about maternal instincts-- though she does ADORE puppies-- and more about having a vast brood to carry on her legacy, whatever that legacy may be. She wants to be the matriarch of a huge, sprawling clan, putting her in a potential position of power without actively having to advance in pack ranks or something similar; if she has children spanning across multiple packs, in multiple positions, she merely needs to request what she wants from her darling offspring. And, of course, it would make her feel useful and strong, despite her runtish size, to provide for her young.

Null doesn't care much for 'mates'-- she acknowledges that it would be best to have one so her puppies would have stable access to their father, and she supposes that it would be nice to be mated to someone that she had affection for, but it isn't a huge concern in her mind. She holds no dreams of great romance or world-shaking love. As far as she is concerned, her mate would only be there to get her pregnant, so physical strength and intelligence are more concerning factors for her than whether or not she 'loves' them. Love would be a welcome bonus, but not a necessity. As such, it's rather fortunate that she has fallen head-over-heels for the huge, quietly intelligent Rurik.

Since joining Salsola, acquiring the Family rank, and becoming Salsola's Vendetta, Null has become significantly more confident and sure of herself. Whereas prior her speech was littered with contractions and stammers-- partly out of anxiousness and partly to seem harmless and cute-- now she most commonly speeks eloquently and enunciates her words clearly. She still plays the 'I'm super cute and harmless, help me out' card if she can get away with it, but she also snaps and commands a lot more if she can.

History:
Biography: Null was born in Quebec to two nomadic loner Mexican Wolf Luperci who had wandered all the way from Arizona in search of a good place to settle long before she and her five litter mates were born. Null was the runt of the litter, not expected to survive, and her mother named her 'Null'-- meaning 'Nothing'-- simply as a way to refer to the pup that both parents assumed was going to die. Despite their assumptions Null survived, but the name was stuck.

She never managed to grow to full size like her litter mates, but she managed to outlive three of them, who never made it through their first winter. It was clear that she would never be as strong as her two remaining brothers, so she focussed on being quick and agile instead, becoming a decent hunter. Being the smallest of her family and constantly bullied by her brothers, she often had to resort to trickery and manipulation to get what she wanted from them. She became adept at the art of subterfuge.

When she was a year old she left her family home, deciding to travel and find herself a real pack, one that would value her abilities in the subtle fields of sneaking and wit and appreciate her silver tongue. She walked to the area once known as Nova Scotia and caught the scent of multiple wolf packs. She immediately began to seek out one that she would fit into.

SKILLS:

* Languages-- Fluent English, conversational Spanish, odd words in a handful of other languages.

* Reading-- Has a working knowledge of written English from her puppyhood, hasn't had much practice since leaving her family home.

* Trapping-- Skilled at creating traps and using them to catch her prey.

* Tracking-- Has a very keen nose and is good at using scent and visual clues to track something, whether it be prey or a fellow canine.

* Throwing knives-- Has excellent aim and uses the set that she keeps in her satchel to avoid engaging in close combat.

* Stealth-- Has a natural talent for moving silently and staying hidden.

* Lying-- Can tell a barefaced lie without any of the usual give-away nervous tics, and can remember every tiny detail of the lie so she never has contradictory stories. Can come up with a plausible story in seconds.

*First Aid-- Can treat wounds/mild illnesses, knows how to perform resuscitation. No deep medical knowledge.


NPCs:

cNPC-- Rurik "Ruriksha" Volkov:
50% Eurasian Wolf, 50% Newfoundland dog

2 years old.

APPEARANCE--

*Lupus form-- 44 inches, 200lb. Secui-- 48 inches, 320lb.His coat is solid black and very shaggy, hiding the outline of his powerful, heavy-boned body and making his limbs appear almost bear-like. He has very large paws, a blunt muzzle like a Newfoundland but without the droopy lips, and two upright ears with a hint of droop at the tips. His eyes are a striking amber colour. He has webbed paws/hands (webbing extends to the third knuckle in Optime form).

*Optime form-- 7'8", 335lb and muscular. He tends to stoop to slightly lessen the massive height difference between himself and most other Luperci. He wears his combed-out mane braided at the sides and wrapped up into a messy bun at the back. He has two golden studs in each ear.

PERSONALITY--

Despite his intimidating appearance, Rurik is friendly, easy going, and not particularly dominant in nature. In fact, Null is the dominant one in their relationship and has a tendency to push Rurik around (both verbally and physically-- he allows her to shove him around [both playfully and as an expression of dominance] despite her tiny size). He is happy to follow her around and do as she says. He could be described as 'docile'.

Despite this, he can be aggressive and protective when provoked. He is physically powerful and knows how to fight, crushing his opponents with heavy blows. If anyone threatens his friends (Especially Null) or pack then they best be prepared to incur his wrath.

He speaks with a Russian accent and has a tendency to roll his 'r's. "Ruriksha" is Null's nickname for him, using Russian nicknaming conventions.

Rurik isn't particularly agile, but can outpace many over short distances simply because of his long legs. Over long distances, however, he is slowed by his size and encumbered by his weight. He often hits his head on doorways and ceilings.
