READ the "sand info BOX"!!!
Alright time for the sand wolves! As usual read the info box to be aware of their situation. Your fan character in AzureHowl
In Short, originally I was going to design every ghost pup (survivors of the Dark cities) on my own. Realizing it would be more fun to involve you guys I decided to start these journals were people could submit an entry. This way the survivors will feel even more alive due to your personal touch on the character.Next specie : Sand
Sand survivors info box
Well known as thief's, mercenaries, assassins and pack watchers, these wolves were among the best trappers of the Dark cities. They lived on the edges of the desert, they were the only pack of sand wolves known to be part of the Dark cities society. They were famous for trapping wolves or travelers in the desert that carried goods or prey. They were notorious for stealing, but equally known for being deadly wolves. Wolves would never see them coming as they would appear out of nowhere from the sand, and if they didn't show up wolves would find themselves stuck in Drift sand. They worked with sand tunnels which were all created by them. When the Shadow Clans attacked, their first wave of light wolves was completely destroyed by the sand wolves. The majority of light wolves simply ran into traps. Unaware of the danger the sand wolves laughed it of being rather confident. As the moment they realized there was a slaughtering going on against the Dark cities, all the opportunities they had to flee were gone. The Shadow Clans had send in their wind wolves, as they could use their element to their advantage. As they flew in and picked up pups, the parents who were hiding came out in attempt to get the young ones back. In the end wind wolves caused a tornado to force them all out of hiding and then begin the killing. The fight took longer than most fights did, but in the end they too fell to the Shadow clans. The pups were taken to the slave camps, but so many died in the progress too. Once rescued from the slave camp located in the desert, these wolves became among the most important individuals in the pack led by Kane. As they are all pack watchers, but more or less to keep an eye on the outside of their base. They will guards for any possible threats, and have made their very own traps to capture potential enemies. 2 of them even have a summoning which they use to their advantage. They are the key to keeping this base hidden. They look up at wolves as Kaitou, as most of their parents all carried this rank. But equally they look up at Kareny, as she has given them hints on how to defend properly against an incoming wind wolf. Your fan character

-It's not first come first serve, I will pick between the entries for this journal

-I can alter the background, I can add past events... or choose them for a role that was supposed to happen within the pack. For example "Ice wolf Hayden" had information on how Ice pups were killed by the Shadow Clans. This is extra info I add in.
-Naming characters, no names like Bob, Jessica etc... keep the names special, use google translate and experiment with words (AzureHowl has many Japanese inspired names). Do try to mix and don't just type "word" translated to Japanese, and use the exact word google translate gives you. I noticed in previous entries some people had really similar names. try to make em more unique.
-You can make a max of 2 entries
-Usually I will only pick one of your entries! If I pick more and the entries aren't yours, do not question it! Rule above states "usually" meaning I can make exceptions! "Post your character here!"
don't just post it randomly post it to this journal so I can see it, don't be sad would I not pick your character!"Naming rule"
Probably SUPER important, special names are required as the majority of wolves in AzureHowl have these, such as : Ruuza, Kaitou, Kareny, Takaya, Nihar, ....
So I do not want to see names like :Jack, Bobby, Oliver, charlotte, victoria, Samantha, Jacob, ....Tips
-Do not name your character's sibling, this way I might make the wolf in question related to another wolf.
-Your wolf can be an offspring of special ranks such: leader, commander, general, etc....(unless it's mentioned they cannot have the rank above)
-If the specie in question has the possibility for different colors for the markings, then please use these. Many tend to stick to the colors they already have naturally. This only counts for symbolized wolves. Check out this chart =>
Even when NOT symbolized they can inherit a color mutated eye color. (unless they are a specific specie with a specific color requirement for eyes)
-I recommend reading this azurehowlshilach.deviantart.co…
-Info Dark cities: azurehowl.weebly.com/ghost-pup…
-You can add desired rank in profile, but the focus is more on ranks they needs, like pack watchers, hunt wolves etc... ranks like assassin are currently not added because these wolves do not practice is as a profession due to their current situation.
-When making a symbolized wolf, chances are if you add tons of dots or stripes which in general is a pain to animate, that I won't pick your character due to it's appearance. You'll notice my own symbolized wolves will rarely have to many markings. Avoid extremely complicated designs! As much as I love some designs do keep in mind I will judge it with the thought of having to animate it, adding a marking with to much complexity might lower the chances of success. "Ghost pup pack structure"
In short, (long can be found in previous journals)
Kane is one of the 6 "main" leaders of the pack, underneath these leaders are the "group leaders" , they are usually leading their respected specie within the pack. They lead for the 6 main leaders, and keep an eye on their small pack to take away some of the stress of the main leaders. Underneath the group leaders are the commanders. The commanders are chosen by the group leaders, they help and aid the group leaders by keeping an eye on the small group. By having this system it allows the 6 main leaders to have a better overview on their pack. Meaning that they can quickly act if problems rise or if an individual in the pack has serious problems.
