Samhain (pronounced SAH-win) is a Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the "darker half" of the year. Traditionally, it is celebrated from 31 October to 1 November, as the Celtic day began and ended at sunset. This is about halfway between the autumn equinox and the winter solsticeIt is widely believed that many Halloween traditions originated from this ancient harvest festival. (from wikipedia)

Super rare: extra long tail fur, pastel scales (shoulder and around eyes)


Samhain is very solitary and secretive. She is seldom seen by others and generally little is known about this enigmatic Canora. Some even believe that she is a myth made up to scare pups. She lives alone in the deep forest where she studies and meditates to hone her abilities. She is well acquainted with all the forest's plants, stones, and fungi and their medicinal or spiritual uses. She is very curious and loves to learn about and catalogue the natural phenomena around her and spends her spare time collecting specimens and charting the movement of the stars.

backstory is foggy, even to her as to her. Due to an unknown disease or circumstance, most of the memories of her young life have been lost. Every detail about her of her family, her birthplace, and life events up until just before adolescence left completely erased. For as long as she can remember she's been alone in the wilderness, and thus sees all the plants and animals of the forest as her family.

She considers herself to be a guardian of nature and is ruthless to intruders or those who disrespect the earth. She is very coolheaded, intelligent, and strategic, preferring to use her enemy's strength against them rather then win by brute force. She is even willing to kill without a second thought if she feels the threat is grave enough. This has caused her to gain a degree of infamy or even contempt among other Canora who misunderstand her intentions. 

With that said she is not cruel and does not believe in unnecessary violence. Nor does she automatically hate outsiders. In fact, she sometimes finds herself intrigued by them or touched by their suffering. There have even been legends of pups lost in the woods being mysteriously guided back to safety, bunches of medicinal plants being found by someone who is sick, or bullies inexplicably breaking out in boils.
