READ THIS ENTIRE POST BEFORE MAKING AN ETERNITÀ!
Basically I made this breed because I wanted to involve the character from my book, Thorn, on wolfweb, but she couldn't be a normal wolf because that betrayed the character.
Anyway, here it is! if anything is too confusing tell me and I'll try to clarify.
If you're interested, post here, or PM me!Breed:
The light spirit named Luce (pronounced Loo-che) bestows this breed upon wolves who she feels are in need of it or have earned it. This breed is basically based off of mercy, and it is usually given to wolves who are just about to die. For example, if a wolf is gravely ill with some awful disease and has a strong desire to live, Luce might pay him a visit and save him. If a wolf is gravely injured and about to die, she might grant them the gift of being an Eternità. There are thousands of scenarios, so just have fun with it. Description:
The Eternità breed is very sparse. Very few wolves actually make up its population, and they do not stick together as a pack. This breed is always aligned to light, because Luce only chooses those who are. Eternità are also immortal. The age at which they are converted into Eternità is the age that they remain forever (transformed at six years old, the wolf will remain six years old in appearance). Though this does not mean that they cannot be killed. Their immortality comes, mostly, from their bodies' quick ability to heal. When cut, the Eternità's body will instantly begin the healing process, which is over 100 times faster than your average wolf. Of course, any attack that will result in an instant kill will do the same for an Eternità as well as wounds that are mortal enough to where it will kill the wolf before the body can heal.
The biggest factor about Eternità, though, is their Companions. (This is very similar to daemons from His Dark Materials). When a wolf meets Luce and is converted into an Eternità, part of their soul is removed from their body and bestowed into another being. These beings are always smaller than the wolf in question, and often very fantasy-like. These Companions cannot be killed, but they can feel pain. Companions can speak, touch, and interact with other wolves perfectly well, and often times are considered a separate entity entirely. Companions and their others can speak through their minds, but most of the time they speak openly to avoid confusion. ALSO, there seems to be a little confusion: Companions DO NOT age. They are part of the wolf's soul congealed into a physical being, therefore age never comes. Personality:
Eternità can have any personality. There is nothing constricting them in this way. YES, they might be aligned to good, but that does NOT mean that they have to be nice. Offspring:
The offspring of Eternità are, in fact, not Eternità. They are born as if neither parent was an Eternità. The range of the litter is anywhere between two and six. More is rare, as is less. As parents, the Eternità tend to get very close to their children, knowing that they will die far before they do, and wanting to take every opportunity they can. Many Eternità chose not to have children only for the fact that losing your offspring is a very, very sad thing indeed. Pups:
The pups are just like normal wolf pups (or, at that, whatever breed their parents are taking out the Eternità factor). Availability:
Basically, I don't want a whole ton of these things running around WW. They're a pretty rare breed to come across due to the fact that they don't procreate other Eternità, so I'd like to keep the numbers low... I'll decide what exactly that means later, haha, depending on how popular they seem. Right now I'll cut it off at... six? Newbies are welcome, but I might PM you a few tips if I feel like you need it. Other Information:
Eternità, other than healing quickly, have no real powers. When within ten miles of another Eternità, they can sense the other's presence, but that's pretty much it. Other OTHER information:
The first of this breed was a wolf named Cain, who is since deceased. He would have been around 25,000 years old today, and I don't want any of the other wolves to come CLOSE to that age. My character, Thorn, is around 7000 years old, and I'd really like it if no one went higher than 8000. They don't know much about their history (obviously there were wolves between Cain and Thorn) and it'd be nice if no one tried to make a super-old one. It might even be interesting to roleplay one that isn't quite old enough to understand their immortality. Also, I do NOT want a pack of these things together, so if you want to make a character, feel free to put them into any roleplay you find that they're suitable in. Just PLEASE either PM me a link or post the link here of where they ARE being roleplayed so I can keep up with them. And, if you ever want to STOP playing your character, let me know!
