Iorek's flower crown
A bear-like male padded through the woods. He was massive, almost a giant to some. He walked in his Secui form, making him even more bear-like. His fur was long and thick and waterproofed. He had large webbed paws and his legs were a bit longer than normal due to his sighthound blood. His ears were rounded like a bear's ears and his bobbed tail was also reminiscent of a ursine mammal. His snout was broader than a wolf's and he had a broad build that made him seem even bigger.
His fur was a haphazard mess of darker browns splattered on a tan canvas that dulled in some places. His saddle was the aspect that stood out from the canvas as it was a splattered mess of browns. It stopped abruptly once it passed his ears and then his face was dipped in dark hues. His legs were also dipped in the dark hues, or more of splattered in them. A white hue was also present on his pelt, streaking his shoulder, tipping his tail, and painting his chest. He had blood-red eyes.
A pink and white flower crown lay on his head. It went around his bobbed ears, adding a splash of color to his brown pelt. The flower crown had many flowers and was ever so pretty.
Iorek relished getting out of the pack lands sometimes. The houses and structures around Casa di Cavalieri were still foreign to him and he was still getting used to the concept of two legs and still learning about the more humanized lifestyles that the knights enjoyed. The bear boy had grown up in a very feral upbringing and it was very isolated. Safe to say that he still had hard time introducing himself or even making conversation.
The flower crown the brown behemoth wore was a reassuring weight and presence. His friend, Arlen had made it for him. He liked the calming colors and didn't mind looking at his reflection. It wasn't really vanity, it was simply him observing how the flower crown made him look. The object gave the red-eyed recruit an ounce of confidence. And that was something he didn't have much of.
The brown-painted Secui was too caught up in his mind and didn't realize where he was going. And then he collided into a tree. S-Sorry! He said and then checked if his flower crown was okay. And it was! And then, his sense of smell kicked in and then he smelled food! A carcass! His stomach rumbled as he was almost always hungry despite getting food in his new pack. The wolfdog peeked from behind the tree.
A strange woman was next to the carcass. She was small and her features were peculiar. She had long legs and sharp features, something that the youngster had never seen before. She didn't have an ear which was extremely weird. And there were many scars on her which piqued his interested. Another aspect was the piece of shinny thing in her ear. The yearling was baffled. She didn't smell all wolf either,
W-What y-you? Y-you...y-you n-not a-all...a-ll w-wolf? The hybrid beast stammered. W-where e-ear? W-what s-shiny th-thing?

Let me know it the table isn't okay. Also, I hope Vesper enjoys the level of clueless and shock.
Iorek towered over the stranger, though his slight cower suggested that she seemed bigger to him. The woman had an air around her that he couldn't place, though it did seem slightly familiar. He didn't understand what her scoff meant; he didn't actually know much about scoffs and didn't exactly know what the meant. She was weirdly colored with her blue hues and her fur was a pretty mix of soothing colors. She was very scarred, but the scars looked interesting as well. The wolfdog scented bird on her. Did she eat it?
The brown behemoth tilted his head as the female said that she was a "coywolf". That term flew over his head. She elaborated further, saying that her mother was a coyote. That made him tilt his head the other way and an even more confused expression crossed his face. What was a coyote? Was it a disease? No, it wasn't that, but it was something that he had never heard of. The woman said that he wasn't all wolf, which was true. His mother said that she was a wolf, and referred to his sire as a dog. M-My m-mother w-wolf. M-My s-sire d-dog. He said and then she went on to answer the other questions, though the chocolate-saddled brute could ask the other questions later.
The red-eyed recruit had a shocked look on his face. Her ear was ripped off? How did that happen? He hoped his ear didn't get torn off. His small ears pressed against his skull at the thought. How could she hear without her ear? The coywolf said that the thing in her ear was called an "earring". How was it attatched to her ear? And why couldn't she take it off? His head tilted the other way. Another slightly shocked expression crossed his visage as she said that she wouldn't mind getting it ripped off. B-But th-then y-you be d-deaf! The crimson-eyed Cavalier exclaimed.

Iorek didn't know how coyotes and wolves could think differently. He understood that maybe they came in different colors since he didn't look like many other people he had met and he knew people looked different from each other. But "being more independent"? That was one of the words he knew since his mother often used it. But the boy saw the value of pack life and respected it. He probably would have starved without Casa di Cavalieri. And how the woman said that coyotes didn't bow down to alphas? The wolfdog didn't know what an alpha was either. His head tilted slightly, but he didn't look as confused as he had been before.
The coyote woman's answer to the brown behemoth's question did clear some stuff up. So, ears could hear without the ear, but couldn't figure out where things were. But that seemed like she would be deaf, just not fully deaf. He hoped that she didn't lose the other ear because he didn't want her to become deaf because she seemed nice. He hoped would never lose his ears because then the chocolate saddled behemoth wouldn't be able to hear.
And then the coywolf asked the red-eyed Recruit where his mother was. The boy's head hung slightly as the woman asked that. It had been a while since someone had asked that, but the wound was still there. His mother always weighed on his mind since he still missed her despite having been moons since she died. S-She d-died. The crimson-eyed Cavalier said. He remembered the attack since it was still fresh for him despite it having been months ago. The loss of his mother had shaken the boy to his core and changed the way he spoke and how he held himself. The massive yearling sat down since he didn't like standing in one place for too long.

Sorry for the wait! Maybe we can end it in the next round?
Iorek shook his head in response to the coyote woman's question. He didn't fully understand the question, though he knew that he had joined Casa di Cavalieri, but it didn't seem like they had taken him in. He had been alone for three moons after his mother had died, scavenging and starving as he traveled. He briefly wondered if the knight pack would have taken him in if he had come to them sooner, but the wolfdog didn't know if he would have accepted the offer, as he had needed time to grieve.
The massive yearling looked up as the woman shared that her mother had also died when she was young. He remembered how he had felt after his mother's death. Had the woman felt the same way after her mother had died? He wanted to ask how, but he felt it wasn't appropriate. S-Sorry The bear dog said.
The red-eyed Recruit realized that he hadn't thought to introduce himself which was a bit rude.. I-I Iorek He said and then the woman told him her name which was Vesper. And then she said that she led a coyote pack called Inferni. His head tilted as he wondered. An entire pack of coyotes? Were others allowed? P-Pack i-is a-all c-coyote? The crimson-eyed Cavalier asked.
