Lupa stood, muscles slightly tensed, as she awaited the arrival of the cats. As apprentice to the Alpha female, this was a duty that couldn't be avoided, not that she wanted to. Even if she hadn't been in her current position she still would have eagerly volunteered to go. Despite this she remained on alert, not wanting to be caught off guard by any conflict which may arrive with the arrival of the felines. In Lupa's eyes being caught off guard was failure, a sign she wasn't up the the job she had fought for, and this was a thought the female couldn't stand. Although methodical, reserved, practical minded and firm, she carried a great amount of pride, and Lupa didn't to find said pride compromised in any way, shape or form. She never had, and as far as the female wolf was concerned, she never would.
She wasn't all that intimidating to look at at first, in her biped form Lupa had a slight stature, wiry though also muscled and strong for her size. Her ears and tail were a pale grey, streaked through with darker shades, and her hair, a white blonde, hung lank at her sides. The female Alpha apprentice's most memorable feature were her eyes, a clear blue. Everything else about her was small and pointed. For the most part her appearance in combination with her quieter, more contemplative persona encouraged others to underestimate her, though she could be extraordinarily, unnervingly, in fact, vicious when the need arose.
She surveyed their surroundings now, the wolves had arrived early, gaining the upper hand in a silent battle which had no doubt already begun. Lupa was glad that they had arrived first, it was an advantage. They could scout, explore, mark their temporary territories, it was a move she had fully supported, and now, as she stood waiting, a little of her quiet arrogance shone through. Yes, when the felines arrived Lupa would be more than ready.
