Will Trask has been the Alpha of the Ikusi Pack for about six years now and he does his best to uphold the values of his predecessors; don't make no waves, just get your hands dirty and look out for your family. Because to him, there really isn't much more to life than a good cooked meal, some close friends and people you can poke fun at while you're all sweaty on a construction site.
The below blurbs are for some of those in Will's inner circle, but other Ikusi members may apply as well! FC's are all pretty open (aside from THE STRANGER) and the back stories are also up for grabs as well. Feel free to message me with any questions you have!
So according to Will's app, he has a sister out in the world named Anne Marie Trask, who was abandoned by her big brother to live a life away from the dangers of the supernatural world. Their parents were killed by hunters back in the mid-1700's and Anne Marie was a small child; a fact that still haunts her to this day, despite her brother's attempts to convince her that the things she remembered about her childhood weren't real. Before he made sure that she was settled with a nice, normal family, he went out of his way to tell gullible little Anne Marie that she'd never seen her Daddy shift into a werewolf at night; that it was all a dream. And for a while there, still saddened by her big brother's disappearance, she believed him.
That is, until she turned twelve and discovered that she was something of a late bloomer in the werewolf world. It was a very good thing that the nice, normal family Will had found for her actually had some distant magical relatives, or things would have certainly been, ahem, hairy.
It's safe to say that Anne Marie, now fully grown with a Will-sized chip on her shoulder, is not amused by her brother's little bout of 'fucking idiotic chivalry.' It's up to the player how she spent the past few centuries, but I imagine that in the past 10 years or so, she started hiring private investigator after private investigator with the money that she accumulated over the years left her and finally, she's tracked Will down...in Alaska, of all places.
So I figure that we can play out this plot in a few ways; from where Hurricane Anne flies into Scylla Bay, or maybe she's come a-calling for work, or out of curiosity about supernatural friendly communities in the world. Either way, there's some definite drama in store for this Trask family reunion.
The FC is negotiable (throw ideas at me!) and her name can also be changed, if you'd like. Personality-wise, I'm looking for a character who's just...strong, independent and ready to kick some Alpha ass. XD
Most of Beta's back story is up for grabs, but I imagine that his family's living in Scylla Bay for generations and his father was around for the creation of the Ikusi Pack itself. He's something of an easygoing guy; just that big, amiable bear of a man who's always down for a game of pick up hockey and a beer. Kids use him like a jungle gym when he's in his feral form, old ladies count on him to fix their leaky sinks and just about everyone in the pack looks to him for advice, when Will himself isn't around.
Really, there isn't anyone Will trusts more to have his back and the pack's best interests at heart. He and Beta hit it off on the first day Will joined the Ikusi Pack and he backed him when Will stepped up to take over, when the old Alpha passed. All in all, he's just a nice guy at heart; a big 'ol squishy teddy bear.
Who can probably squash your head with his thighs.
A bit like Beta, Bro and Will hit it off when they first met, but for Bro, their epic friendship started on the first day Will stepped off the fishing boat he'd been working on. And, of course, given that Bro is something of a force to be reckoned with, it was because of a punch to the face.
See, Bro has never really had a good radar, when it came to significant others. She likes interesting people and unfortunately, 'interesting' can sometimes equate itself to 'fucking insane.' So when an ex decided to try to burn down her apartment, well, she took action, chased the idiot right down Main Street and thinking that it was her prey around that corner, she clocked him with the tire iron she'd pulled out of her car. Turns out that the poor face she'd bloodied up was Will's.
He lost a tooth that day, but he definitely gained one hell of a...colorful friend.
Bro is a no-nonsense kind of girl; the tomboy who could do anything a man could do and probably faster, better and with a lot more gusto. She took to Will's amiable nature like a duck to water and these two are almost always together. Some say that there's something more than friendship brewing there, but when asked, Bro just shrugs and smiles. She's a member of the Ikusi Pack and co-owns a garage with Will.
THE PACK MOM • 100+ • MORENA BACCARINWell, if Will is the Pack Dad, Ma is obviously the Pack Mom. Or the 'Den Mother,' as she's lovingly called. As the wife of the dearly departed former Alpha, she's well respected within the pack and what she says normally goes. It was a bit of a surprise that she didn't step up to take over the pack herself when her husband died, but she's been a stalwart support of Will's and everyone's left it at that. She's a strong woman, a frontier wife through and through and it's said that her family's been in Alaska for generations, maybe even longer than Beta's.
Ma's a born nuturer and one hell of a fierce protector of her pack; surprisingly, she's probably one of the few that Will has to hold back, when it comes to squabbles with other packs or supernaturals in the area. She suffered greatly when her husband died and she vowed that she won't lose another person she loves, before she's put in the ground herself. And given that she loves just about everyone in the pack, well...it's safe to say that she can be a hothead at times, when it comes to their wellbeing. She has Will's ear when it comes to almost everything and as such, she has something of an 'honorary advisor' role within the pack.
Stranger over here is something of a new addition to the Ikusi's and to Scylla Bay in general. And truth be told, he's only an Ikusi because Bro decided that he was 'her pet project' and wouldn't leave him the hell alone. It's up to the player whether or not he's a born or bitten werewolf, but it's obvious that he's got one hell of a dark past following him around.
Maybe he was a soldier who'd followed some questionable orders, maybe he's a former criminal who's trying to repent. Maybe he was a cop who saw too many things...or maybe he was a hunter who's father dragged his teenage ass out on a hunt and watched dear 'ol dad kill a certain werewolf and his wife, while Will and Sister Anne were hiding outside.
All in all, Stranger just wants to live a quiet life and came to Scylla Bay by mysterious means. One minute, Will had an empty room in his apartment, open for any pack mate who needed a place to stay and the next, Bro was shoving Stranger's scrawny ass in with the month's rent payment. Stranger mostly keeps to himself, but he talks to Will and works as a hiking guide when he needs the extra help. Otherwise, he's normally buried in car parts over at Will and Bro's garage.
Well...when he's not watching Will, that is. For reasons that we can definitely discuss. ;D
