This is a character sketch of Dalanora, an art request I asked from my friend Jumpover Moon. Thanks, matey! You did a GREAT JOB!

Marital status: Widowed


Eye color: Dark green (on right side), the other eye's blind. Fur color: Black, except for her birthmark, a dark brown splotch covering her head; it makes her look like she's wearing an executioner's hood.

Nightdeath is a tall, thin otter. She would be muscular, but starvation's taken a toll on her. She's attractive, but has a long, deep scar running across the left side of her face from her forehead, across her eye and cheek down to her chin, the scar stops just before reaching her neck. She keeps her blind eye covered by a musselshell patch. She wears a ragged red tunic and blue vest.

Back StoryEdit

Dalanora used to live in peace in a nice little holt on the Northeast coast with her beloved husband Tallion and their four baby kits, sons Jir and Varon and daughters Driana and Acair.

Tallion was killed while helping protect another holt from an attack, leaving a devastated, widowed Dalanora to raise their babies alone.

When Garanis captured and enslaved her, Dalanora lost her eye in the battle while trying to protect her kits. The Highlander went into bloodwrath for the first time ever when protecting them.

She was hit in the face with an obsidian axe while she was standing in front of her babies. While the otter was down on the ground screaming and helpless in agony, her kits were slaughtered in cold blood in front of her face on his orders. Seeing this twisted her mind from the kind beast she used to be.

Soon after her enslavement, Dalanora adopted "Nightdeath" as her name. Her husband called her by her true name, and she refuses to let anybeast use it.
