Aleron by Robyn-Wolf Aleron by Robyn-Wolf
Aleron... love this character. :)
He is rather spoilt and ignorant, but can be very loving and forgiving too.

Sadly, Aleron in a victim of the exotic animal trade.
He originally came from a scarce light coloured pride~ Exceptionally rare in the wild and highly priced in the animal trade industry (especially those with white fur).
Aleron's parents and other adult pride members were shot for their fur, while the cubs were caught to sell as exotic pets. Each of them were declawed and
defanged, and then chained and displayed in tiny cages. The living conditions were horrific and all Alerons other siblings died from a combination of malnutrition,
dehydration, infection and stress. Aleron however was very fortunate to be discovered and seized by an animal rescue organisation where he received treatment
and proper care. Because he is defanged and has permanent damage to all four paws as a result of the way he was declawed, he can never return to the wild.

He instead lives under the care of a young human girl whose family volunteered to raise and care for him. Despite how cruel humans were to him in the past he
has a loving attachment to his human "big sister" and is very protective of her and calm in her presence. They occasionally travel around together as part of a
special program which educates and raises awareness of the terrible exotic animal trade situation.

Aleron's walking is very awkward and can be painful which due to being declawed.

Declawing is a surgical procedure in which a cats toes are amputated at the last joint.
Most people do not realize that a portion of the bone, not only the nail, is removed. While some felines will have immediate complications from the procedure,
it may be many months or years before the damaging effects of declawing become obvious. Declawing may result in permanent lameness, arthritis, and other
long-term complications. Aleron's paws are heavily scarred from several surgeries to correct his mutated toes, prevent arthritic growths and make walking
less painful. Pain killers and extra medications also help deal with the pain and discomfort should he "overexert" himself.

Not surprisingly Aleron is never in a hurry to get any where, and much prefers a ride in the back of a vehicle to walking.
