Someday Temo will have his own Tardis. Maybe.

In Character

Male 16 May 2008
Wolf/dog Ortus
Fur all black showing his British Columbia Wolf father, but in sunlight, faint highlighting can be seen showing that his mother is a German Shepherd.
Temo now sports some scars given to him by Shurui when he attacked Shurui in an effort to protect his mate, Jace, 3/17/13. One on his left cheek and 2 below on his shoulder
Eyes dark brown, almost black.
Of about average size for a wolf:
Lupus: 85 lbs, 31 in Secui: 190 lbs, 38 in Optime: 210 lbs, 70 in
Quiet and reserved until he gets to know you then more open and friendly. Loyal and will defend to the death. Quick to anger when stressed. A bit of a loner, usually keeping to himself. Has learned many things over several disciplines, a jack of all trades and master of none. Usually will try and work out the how to's and tends not to ask for help, however, will not pass up help or advice if offered. Since joining Cericatori D'Arte, Temo has gravitated his talents into the woodwright field with woodwork and carving. Anyone entering his shop would see that he had amassed a collection of carving and woodworking tools and several projects the he is working on to practice his trade. He is always willing to share his knowledge with others that are willing to listen and learn. After the many hardships that Jace and him had gone through during their time in Souls, he had gotten more quiet and reserved then before.
With the humans gone and no longer hunting wolves or their pray, the British Columbia wolf packs prosper. Most not embracing the changes that the virus brought upon them, there is one pack that does. They embrace their Luperci and go through the human habitations and buildings in their territory, learning. They learn all they can from what the humans left behind. Finding a school and learning to read from the primer books, and in turn, teaching their pups. The elders, realizing that the humans will never return decide that it is the Earth had entered into another age. Like the humans had changed their calendar to mark when an important person died, they decided to mark when the humans had died and given them the shifting. Marking the year of the Virus as the beginning of the new age, year zero AH, Anno Humanis.

Over the years, the pack prospered and grew to the point that their lands can no longer support such a large pack, a few young wolves say their goodbyes to the only family they knew and move south to start a new life. The human settlements, far and few at first, getting thicker as they traveled. After weeks of travel, they come to a human town, empty except for the ghosts and a small pack of dogs barely surviving.

Finding the area to their liking, plenty of game, the dogs welcoming them into their midst and no other wolf packs as far as the nose can smell. It was decided to settle and start the new life they had set out to find. Although the dogs welcomed the wolves into their lands and welcomed the help in hunting, the two packs kept apart at first, only helping each other with hunting and teaching the young.

After a few years, the packs started to integrate. Couples being made from individuals from both packs and mixed pups being born. From one such couple, their first litter born consisted of one male pup they lovingly named Temo.

As a pup, Temo did play with the others, but tended to gravitate to being alone. Usually, he could be found somewhere reading one of the many books found in an old human library that the packs were keeping care of. Preserving the knowledge left behind by the humans. Temo loved to read, especially the how to books and ones that told how the many human contrivances worked.

As the months passed and Temo grew up, he helped with many things, hunting, keeping the lands safe and intruders out, maintaining the library and even helping out with the teaching from time to time. As he grew into adulthood, he found that although they were good looking and he was interested in them, the females did not have eyes for him. One day, on one of his many treks out alone in the dark of early morning, he climbed a high voltage power line scaffold, and facing east, watched the sun slowly rise over the mountains.

When the sun had fully risen above the mountains, an epiphany came to him. Temo realized that his heart did no lay here with his birth pack, but east. East somewhere on the other side of the mountains. After saying goodbye to his pack, his family, he set out towards the Cascades, the journey to an unknown destiny begins.

Many months pass as Temo wandered eastward, first crossing the Cascades, then the Rockies. He met others, both wanderers and packs. Some packs were friendly, letting him pass through their territories. Others not friendly, preventing him from traveling through their territories.

One day, he crosses paths of another, like himself, traveling the lands alone. He ponders her request to travel together to improve their hunting. Looking into her multi colored eyes, his curiosity is piqued as he wonders why this she wolf wanted to be with him when no others that he knew or met did and Temo agrees to travel with her.

Through the intervening time since arrival to Souls, Temo had been a member of several packs, helped raise several litters with his mate Jace, and had found himself a niche as a woodwright. Not only does he have a collection of woodworking tools, but has built himself a lathe and taught himself to use it. His range of abilities include repairing furniture and performing repairs on houses, especially the old human ones.

His current work is learning how to make lumber and build furniture and other items from the lumber because he knows that the human made lumber supply is not limitless as much of it is rotting away. He has a number of books that he refers to in his en devours to learn his craft and expand on his knowledge. He also expanded his carving skills from furniture to figurines and weapon handles including doing inlays with wood and scavenged copper and aluminum wire. After several attempts at building a spring pole lathe, he finally hit upon a design that worked and after much practice, can turn various items on it.

Past experiences, notably the issues that had eventually led to the demise of Cercatori D'Arte and birth of Midnight Shores, had brought him to a mind of agreement when his mate, Jace, suggested that he learn the ways of the warrior so that he would be better able to defend himself and help in the defense of the pack. The range of warrior skills that Jace taught him include sword, knife, throwing knife, Bo staff, hand and feet, and bow and arrow. The bo staff quickly becoming his favorite choice of weapon followed by his hands and feet.

Constant practice had led him to develop his own combined style of staff with his hands and feet. The breaking of practice staffs had led him to a style of double half-staff fighting using the broken halves of the bo staff.

With the disbandment of Midnight Shores, Temo acquired a horse who hangs out with Jace's horses now. After spending some time in a lowland valley of the Halcyon mountains, Temo and Jace made their way to Casa Di Cavalieri to join family and friends. There, he helps Jace torment the residents of the pack.
