While Teagan's physique is more inclined to be wolf-like, the dog blood of her lineage appears slightly more prominent than in her siblings. Her fur, facial features, and markings are vaguely doggish while the build of her body is more similar to that of a wolf. Double-coated and of medium length, Teagan's fur is noticeably longer in her four-legged forms (seen particularly around her neck/chest, haunches, and tail). Built to clearly resemble that of a wolf, but the folded tip of her right ear is a giveaway to her dog lineage.

Teagan inherited the stocky build of her father rather than the willowy one of her mother. She stands on the taller side, and is lean and muscular. Her body type allows for easy muscle gain, and geared more towards strength rather than speed. She favors Lupus form for ease of travel and for its speed in comparison to her other ones. Secui: Large due to her ancestry and with sinewy muscles. Rare; Teagan doesn’t see much benefit in using the halfling form, usually able to get what she needs out of Lupus or Optime. Optime: Like her parents, Teagan stands on the tall side of the spectrum. She has soft, womanly curves, but has a lean, muscular, athletic look to her as well. Teagan is often found in this form, as it functions primarily for her more humanoid tasks; such as sword fighting, falconry, and horseback riding.
She is not the most friendly or social of individuals, and often prefers to keep to herself. Because of this lack of outward friendliness, she might be regarded as cold or unsocial. Teagan’s not much for casual conversation unless the mood suits her—or if forced to by the situation—and, so, words that fall from her tongue are often spoken in a tone that is abrasive, brash, blunt, or confident. Teagan is very prideful, a trait that is often her downfall, as she is not one to easily admit she’s wrong or change her mind when it’s made up. She is a creature that is very confident in herself and her actions (not to point of arrogance though), and is often noted for her bravery. She is a go-getter and someone to be proactive about things than let something just fall into her lap.

Overall, she is a tomboy that is not afraid to get her paws dirty. She loves to fight and roughhouse, and will bear her teeth at girly or “soft” things. She doesn’t like to appear weak, and will often cover these feelings or signs with aggression, faux confidence, or indifference/ignoring or avoiding the subject matter. As a result, she is not very touchy-feely or a gal in-tune with her more emotional side. She may become overwhelmed if smothered with those that are the opposite of this, and may—unintentionally—snap or become aggressive in an attempt to maintain her “personal bubble.” Teagan is, however, compassionate with things she cares for. She is the type to find other ways to show her affection without being outright with it though. As well, Teagan is highly protective of those she deems a friend or ally, and will go out of her way to make sure that they are happy—at any cost.

In spite of this, she has high morals, which often keeps her from doing anything too dark. As such, Teagan is someone who thrives on justice, and may be hard-pressed to let something just slide by unpunished. Teagan is not a Luperci known for her tack either. She is blunt and judgmental of others, and is typically not one to honey her words. She believes in a tough skin, as it is the precedence she puts for herself.
She is the daughter of Lyris Stryder and Luca Knight, and littermate to Indi Knight. She was born and raised in Casa di Cavalieri, where she was mentored by Sylvie Agnès up until she passed her First Blood ceremony in August 2016. In her career as a Cavalier, she only ever took on one apprentice, Minerva Griffith, in late-2017. Teagan remained single up until the late summer of 2019, when she finally accepted Makoto Ridley as her husband and mate after two years of secretive courtship. Teagan resided in her birthpack for a total of four years, and went as far as obtaining the Council rank of Warlord. As a Brotherhood member, she was the Master of Bladed Weapons. She held the co-rank of Falconer and was an Ambassador for Krokar, and, later, Salsola.

In late November of 2019, Teagan abruptly left her birthpack, feeling “no longer necessary,” as well as knowing there might be unrest within the pack for not being chosen as the next Sola. She and her immediate family departed to the fledgling pack, New Caledonia, where she reluctantly pledged her allegiance to Lord Regent Athras Eryn through a blood bond. As a Caledonian, she quickly found her place again as a fighter and protector of the new kingdom, becoming a member of the City Watch, as well as the pack’s first official Falconer.
