Black of color, the guard hairs exceptionally long, her undercoat predominately black with deep brown undertones. Her obsidian eyes were edged with a deep silver which she inherited from her Ancestor, ShukuWolf, along with the fae's body size as was typical of an Arctic wolf, perhaps a recessive genes had been passed along to her that she had little Timber wolf ancestry. Shukie is of typical size for an Arctic/Timber wolf.

Come close and you shall find out!
Extremely curious in nature and eager to learn any and everything she can, often seeking out others. She's not one to hesitate to take action when needed but will seek the advice of her peers if they are nearby. In watching her you will see an unusually calm yet confident fae. Be on your guard for she can switch from serious wolfess to playful pup in actions when you least expect it. Once you get to know her you'll find a friend and confidant, willing to listen when needed and give guidance from her experiences or direct you to those whom are more capable. She is slow to form deep bonds for she already lost her mother, Nahala, and most recently her adopted mother, Kyara. She still did not know if Kyara had survived the polar bear attack. Once the bonds are formed, it is for a lifetime and beyond.
Shukie was born of Nahala in the outskirts of the WolfSpirits territory near The Hallows along with her sister, Kova. She would come to learn after their return to WolfSpirits that she was direct descendant of ShukuWolf, First Wolf, Alpha of GlacierWinds. During her time with the WolfSpirits she had matured learning many lessons, some rather harshly and at the paws of Faolan. After many months of trial and error, more error than anything she had been accepted as Kin to the WolfSpirits and became pack. Some considered her a trouble magnet!
From her time during the quest before joining as a Pledge, Shukie came to know of her ancestor ShukuWolf and a Human named WolfDreamer, a Shaman of the First People and of the bonds between ShukuWolf and the Shaman. Spirits of The Shaman, along with ShukuWolf and Kovo, First Alpha of WolfSpirits, helped the WolfSpirits to restore balance to Kovo's original pack territory.Though the spirits of ShukuWolf and WolfDreamer had left her body, perhaps parts of them remained enabling her to know things she otherwise would not, giving her the insight and experience of a much older wolf.
The season would change from winter to spring in which she found herself accepted as an Assessment and just prior to the onset of summer accepted as Kin to the WolfSpirits. As time progressed into early summer she found herself advanced to Scout, much to her shock and amazement given her initial few months with the pack. She fully trusted her Alphas, Atraya and Faolan, knowing they knew best and perhaps saw something in her that she, herself, had yet to see.
A new lineage had been born of the Alpha pair this season and the pack had many new wolves passing through. Some remaining and others moving on after a time. It was a period of great joy and much stress as odd occurrences were taking place within the territory. The events were unfolding slowly along with their meaning. For now, the next few months would be ensuring the survival and safety of the Alpha pups.
In a most surprising change of events during the middle of the breeding season...no.. Shukie did not find a court and was not going to have pups.. but instead she found herself being offered the position of Delta, the first step towards Beta of the WolfSpirits. As the days passed and her training would begin Shukie came to realize, at least in part, just what all the Alpha's responsibilities were and wondered just how she would manage, having doubts she was up to the position as the right paws of the Alphas. Her first struggle was in the change in attitudes of various pack members towards her. Though she tried to put them at ease, her initial days as Delta were filled with much anxiety and second thoughts of accepting the advancement. Time shall tell if she is in fact up to the task. For now, she began traveling with the hunters, guardians and caretaker to better learn their duties for she'd need to be well versed in each rank's duties. She knew that the Alphas may find her unsuitable for the rank of Delta, let alone Beta and hoped she would not disappoint them in their choice. Along with the Alphas, she too was responsible for the welfare of all within the realm of the WolfSpirits Realm.
As the first month came to a close after her promotion to Delta she was nearly healed from aiding others of the pack to rid the territory, specifically the areas near the clearing, of a bothersome lynx. During the battle to drive off the feline, she sustained a severe injury to her shoulder when the lynx managed to rake her shoulder with it's claws. It was during her time of recovery that her ancestor, ShukuWolf, helped to put her at ease and give her some insight upon the rank of Delta calming her fears and trepidation's of her new rank. It was at the pack meeting after the Season's passing that she and SkyDancer became Spirit Sisters. A bond that slowly developed over her time here through both their adventures and misadventures, some not so pleasant but none the less growth and learning. Shukie was not one to bond easily with anyone beyond friendships.
More to come!
