Optime [preferred]
Slave comes to six feet even while in this form, she can normally be seen wearing a light leather coat, unless she deems it too warm. She has black fur that is about medium length and thickness. Her eyes are red, one is normally covered by her hair. She is usually frowning, with a slight glare.

Her left arm is missing past the shoulder. It has been like that since she was very young, so she has no real issues with it.

She has a slave brand right above her elbow, it is normally covered by her coat. She has quite a few scars from fights and hunting injuries. She usually carries a dagger with her, in case she needs to fight in defense of herself or kill prey.

Lupus
Slave comes to about three feet at her shoulders while in this form. She normally doesn't change much, so it is very rare to find her in this form. She usually keeps her coat off while in this form, tucking it away in a bag she carries with her for such a occasion. She usually straps the bag across her chest before transforming.

Slave is a rather serious character, who takes everything as it is. She doesn't speak unless she deems it necessary, or is on a job. She will normally not lie, unless she thinks you can't handle or understand the truth. It is hard to anger her, but if you do you are likely to be attacked.

She has changed considerably since her time in Krokar - for one, she no longer fears water as intensely as she used to. She has come to enjoy swimming, diving and harvesting from the shore, and considers this change one of many turning points. Conquering her fear of water opened her eyes to possibility, and with it, the idea that she was more than just a slave.

Despite this boost in confidence, she's as twitchy as she was in the days of Krokar. She reacts quickly to strange scents, sights and sounds, sharply in tune with her five senses. It's hard for her to drift off or daydream if she's uncomfortable. Any social awkwardness from before has bettered, but she's uncomfortable and submissive in the presence of others.

Shale suffers from survivor's guilt and some anxiety, born from the worry over and news of Krokar's destruction. Several avoidant behaviors have begun to appear in her, such as hiding away inside for long periods of time, or repeating menial tasks over and over to avoid certain triggers. She finds it hard to settle in one spot, seized by the thought that something terrible will happen with or without her knowledge. Shale finds great comfort in the ebb and flow of the waterways, and being near them and traveling along them takes her mind off her troubles.

Slave was exactly that as a pup, and it was the only name she can remember ever being called by. Her left front arm was cut off after she attempted to escape her masters at a very young age. She was trained by the slavers to be a tracker, and she has some knowledge of plant life (enough to know which are good for healing minor wounds). Slave mostly lived in Idaho until a group of raiders killed the slavers she was under, she ran as fast and far as she could.

Slave made a small living selling her talent as a tracker, never staying in one place for very long, in fear that her old masters would find her again. Her wandering has got her to Canada.

Slave made a small living selling her talent as a tracker, never staying in one place for very long, in fear that her old masters would find her again. Her wandering got her to Canada. In the later summer of 2016, Slave found a home with the fishermen of Krokar. Her great fear of water made for an awkward co-existence. Nonetheless, she found acceptance and camaraderie, and learned new skills and knowledge. For more than a year, she was content with being a part of this new family, opening up and trusting them more and more. With their patience and willingness to teach her, her confidence grew steadily.

One day, she disappeared from it all. The peak she had reached in enjoying the company of others was at an end; she felt out of place. All these smiling and content faces, and none willing to leave this little patch of shore. It made her feel stifled. Slave retreated from the others, feeling more and more the urge to move on. Around a year after she'd joined them, the Greenhorn left for the wilds with little warning or mention. Her wanderings took her north, out toward barren tundra and sparse northern forests. Odd jobs and charity kept her going, and she went as far north as the wilderness of former Labrador. Spending a little over a year on the Arctic's edge, she found a fishing community, and, with what skills she learned from the Krokarians, integrated herself. It was here she began to recover from past trauma, and finally learned how to swim and keep afloat in water. Her new name, Shale, also came from here after an old wolf showed her a piece of shale with preserved shells and sea life inside of it.

Despite the camaraderie and familial comfort she'd found, pack life once again wore on Shale. Unable to imagine herself living out her days among others, Slave took a dugout and portaged back down to 'Souls. Boats, swimming and water travel was something she'd grown fond of, and she alternated between canoeing along the coast and paddling along the north's boreal rivers. She planned to return to the Northern Tides and seek out Krokar again, finding she was missing the pack she'd left behind. Unfortunately, word of the pack's destruction soon came to her, and Shale felt enormous guilt for abandoning her family and not being there to help them. Unable to face whoever or whatever might be left, she kept to the coasts between the Tides and the Sticks and Stones area, where she remains to this day.
Shade has no family to speak of, though she speaks of Krokar as one since lost. Her mother was a nondescript servant, and her father could've been any of the males either serving or of the slavers. Though wolves are social creatures, Shade finds comfort in solitude. Finding a mate isn't a concern to her, especially as she's grown old and past her whelping prime.
