Default The Howl Of The Canine {RP} - 01-19-2008, 03:46 PM

First of all, yes this RP is in part based loosely on elements of the anime Wolf's Rain, but it is not of that anime so please don't post as if you are in it. The main premis I am borrowing from Wolf's Rain is the one where the wolves are wolves that can turn into humans, rather than humans that can turn into wolves, and that there are tame wolves who live with the humans and deny their heritage. That is all. I am not following the plot of the anime, I have made my own. Please stick to it.

Anyway, the rules are as follows:

1. This RP is for experienced RPers only. That means the following ONLY can join this RP; Silent_Wolf, Sarah_K_O_M, TheHayleyDoll, Spirit_Queen, Singergirl509. No-one else. If your name does not appear on that list, do not spam in this RP asking to join or PM me doing the same.

2. No Mary Sues or Gary Stus. Or else I will hit you.

3. Abide by the rules laid out in the stickies.

4. I'm sure everyone knows what a wolf and a fox looks like; the hunting dogs by the way, look like this: African Wild Dog - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

5. You can be one of the following groups; pets, renegades, vigilantes or humans. Please can everyone try to have equal representatives of each, rather than everyone being of one group. If there are already say 2 pets signed up, then choose another group to belong to. Also, please don't join one and have the characteristics of another.

Character form:


This RP is set in a different world to the one you know. Parallell, but with subtle differences. In this world, there are no wild canines roaming the land; the ones that do live in the world are very different to the ones that roam our land. There are three different tribes; the Lupines, or wolves; the Vulpines, or foxes, and finally the Lycaons, or hunting dogs. These tribes are traditionally separate, each different tribe keeping to its own way, until the humans came. They took over the world, slowly but surely, like a poison seeping into the world's veins. Eventually, the canines were forced out, treated as beasts, but they were no such thing; just different to the humans, with different values.

The humans respected none of the canines' values, and hunted them down, til the canines scattered and had no choice but to persue one of the following unpleasant life routes. Some chose to take their natural forms and live among the humans as pets and guards; hiding their true intellect and their true nature. These canines are seen by the renegades and vigilantes as being traitors to their own kind. They must stay close beside their owners for protection, lest they be trapped and destroyed by their own kind.

Others live as renegades on the fringes of humanity, taking their human forms to blend in with the humans in their own cities, alternately taking their natural forms to scavenge for food. The renegades pride themselves as not being slaves like they see the pets, however they are, in some ways, as much dependant on the humans as the pets are. They have lost their way; they have no leaders and do not form packs like the canines of old did.

Finally, there are the vigilantes; these canines stubbornly live the old life and the old ways, refusing to bow beneath the power of the humans. They despise the pets and look down on the renegades. They dream one day of forcing the humans out so that life can go back to the way it once was.

Trouble is brewing on the horizon; there are humans who wish to once and for all destroy the vigilantes and renegades who they see as being nothing to them but constant annoyance. There are humans who do not hold this view, but wish to continue with the status quo. And finally, there are a small minority of humans who just wish for peace; however, it is very dangerous to publically come out as holding this opinion as a lot of humans who have, have ended up dead; either murdered by the first, and largest, group of humans, or found savaged to death by renegades.

Name: Phelan
Age: 15
Race: Lupine
Group: Renegade
Bio: Phelan was born to a wolf belonging to a renegade group that lived on the fringes of the city. He never knew his father, and never wanted to; his mother brought him up to be independant and trust no-one. He spent most of his childhood being taught to hate the humans for what they'd done, and to despise the pets. He tends to live for the moment, not looking to the future; however, he tends to hold grudges for far too long. He can be far too impulsive, bad tempered and paranoid, thinking that people are talking about him when they're not. He's also suspicious of people's motives, but once a person has his trust they have it forever, unless they do something heinous.

Name: Kasa
Age: 14
Race: Lycaon
Group: Pet
Bio: Kasa's parents only wanted the best for her; they saw their life living on the fringes of humanity to be pointless so they gave their daughter away to made into a pet. Kasa grew up knowing no other life. She is owned by a man who keeps her largely as a pet; he also has a few other canines as guard dogs for his house, which is situated in a rich part of the town. Kasa is strong minded, but also stubborn; she doesn't see why she should live in poverty just so that she can be true to her race; she likes the life of luxury that she lives now and doesn't want to leave it. She can be kindhearted, but also b*tchy and full of herself.


Phelan crept slowly thru the alleyway. He sniffed the air; no trace of humans on the breeze, but he couldn't be sure. There was always the chance of one of those scummy traitors who lived with the humans lying in wait to catch him. As far as Phelan was concerned, if he ever encountered one of the pets away from their master, they would feel his teeth. He had in his past done so; the vulpine traitor had been lucky to escape with his life. Phelan crouched down next to some dustbins. He hated having to scavenge off the humans, but one day, a day of reckoning would happen and it would them having to scavenge off him. He relished the thought as he carefully took a half eaten lamb leg from the dustbin; changing to his wolf form, that of a black wolf, he picked the lamb leg up in his teeth and was gone in an instant.


Kasa stretched luxuriously out on her comfortable bed. She was, as usual, in her lycaon form; her coat freshly brushed, with a pink silk ribbon around her throat. She perked her ears up at the sound of her master's key in the door and jumped up to greet him. She loved her master intensely; as for the idea that by living this life she was betraying her kind, to Kasa that was ridiculous. There was no point in struggling against the tide; the humans were not going to go away and there were far too many of them to fight against. Far better to embrace the chance of living such a life than to constantly starve and fight. She almost pitied the renegades and vigilantes; however, they had made their choice, just as she had made hers.
