PERSONALITY

ORIGINAL/HOST - Estelle

[Perseverant, Devoted, Sanguine, Cynical/Skeptical, Blunt/Mordant, Forlorn, Awkward/Anxious]


:bulletgreen: Perseverant :bulletgreen:
"No way I'll just roll over and wait to die."
Estelle isn't the type to easily give up or not try something despite her own insecurities and issues. At the very least she will keep going, even when she feels like she can't. Though life is a struggle, she wants to do her best to make what she can of it while she still at least somewhat can. This also carries over into persistence towards others. If for some reason she came across someone she truly began to trust and desire to be around, she would perhaps be the one to make attempts to further a relationship and try to get them to stick together.

:bulletgreen: Devoted :bulletgreen:
"I promise, I'm not going anywhere. We're sticking together through this... till the end."
Of course, living in the wasteland is harsh, and welcome company is difficult to come by. Though if Estelle does manage to find herself a friend or two, she will likely become very attatched.  She truly doesn't enjoy being alone, and desires to have someone she can rely on and vice-versa. This could be extremely dangerous considering the fact that dogs change for the worst over time.

:bulletgreen: Sanguine :bulletgreen:
"I-it'll be fine. It could always be worse..."
Estelle along with her drive to keep going and not give up, usually at least attempts to see the brighter side of things. She reflects that she is still alive, and in her mind doing decently well despite her true conditions. She doesn't like to think about the possibility of the infection further changing her, or at least not anytime soon, and holds out hope that she will stay strong for a good while to come and be able to see her sister again.

:bulletyellow: Cynical/Skeptical :bulletyellow:
"W-whatever, you're not going to fool me. You're probably just trying to lure me into being your next victim."
Estelle is very wary of any stranger she may come across, and for very good reason. Being out alone in the Wasteland it seems to be much more likely to find dogs that either are looking at you like their next meal, or are just completely insane. Usually she tries her best to just steer clear of any other dog she sees out of fear of who they might be and what they could be capable of. Even if she does come across someone that seems friendly and begins to get to know, she will still be extremely wary and suspicious of them until she can truly say they are "close", though things can still always change.

:bulletred: Blunt/Mordant :bulletred:
"Yeah right. You don't really mean that, you lying piece of g-garbage."
Despite her short comings and awkwardness, she isn't exactly the type to sugar-coat anything or be fearful of speaking her mind. If she doesn't like you or has any suspicion what-so-ever (which she usually does) she is going to tell you, and not be nice about it at all. She might be considered brutally honest at times, and can come across as quite rude depending on the subject, though usually she doesn't exactly intend to simply be mean.

:bulletred: Forlorn :bulletred:
"..."
Estelle is rather lonely, and gets quite down on herself at times. Having lost her family and being cast out to be alone at such a young age, left her with no one to comfort her. Her fears and anxieties trouble her constantly, and without someone to help her through them, they tend to only get worse for a time. Though likely if she becomes too upset or stressed a change will trigger, and she herself will not have to deal with these problems for a while.

:bulletred: Awkward/Anxious :bulletred:
"Y-yeah? W-well... you're just a stupid... shit face!"
Estelle even with her honest tone, is not very good at actually getting her ideas across. In conversation, she quickly grows uneasy and begins to almost panic sometimes. She often stumbles over her words as she wracks her brain for the perfect thing to say to explain how she feels. She is almost always on edge, and a bit jumpy most of the times. If you decide to sneak up on her you are bound to get a rather unpleasant jumbled hateful earful.


SECONDARY - Ripgut

[Adaptable/Resourceful, Undogmatic, Enthused, Fickle, Solitary, Macabre, Maniacal/Delirious, Furious]

:bulletgreen: Adaptable/Resourceful :bulletgreen:
"A little change never scared me any."
Ripgut takes change much better than Estelle. She usually doesn't have much of a problem with something different or startling happening, and continues to manage herself just fine with varying conditions. She can make the most out of things and is rather skilled in ensuring whatever she has helps her as long as possible.

:bulletgreen: Undogmatic :bulletgreen:
"I'll be the judge of that."
It is very uncommon for Ripgut to take an idea or belief simply in stride. It would be very difficult to sway her thoughts or opinions without some serious discussion or evidence. If you tell her something strange, she has to see it herself before she would believe it. Though when it comes to her own immediate opinions or motives, she is still likely to suddenly make drastic changes based on her own impulses or discoveries.

:bulletgreen: Enthused :bulletgreen:
"Ehehe! Ooooh that's just too perfect!"
Even though she holds much anger, often Ripgut will react to things with a rather ecstatic attitude. She seems to thoroughly enjoy even the bad side of many things, and will take great pleasure in her own success over others. Acting creeped out or truly frightened of her will only make her more interested in causing problems for the other.

:bulletyellow: Fickle :bulletyellow:
"Never mind, I'm just going."
Ripgut is actually pretty indecisive, not being the best at formulating any real plans or long-term methods of action. She is more of the react before thinking type and is more likely to jump onto impulsion. She can frequently change her mind on an issue or even her stance on a subject in a matter of a few minutes, making her not really all the reliable.

:bulletyellow: Solitary :bulletyellow:
"Jeez can't you leave me the fuck alone?"
Ripgut is the type who usually prefers her loneliness. Of course she isn't entirely opposed to being around someone she may somehow grow close too, but she is not the type to seek attention in any way. More than likely if she is with someone she would see them at least as somewhat as a nuisance and tell them so often. She also has an extremely difficult time trusting others, perhaps even more so than Estelle, and would much rather just keep to herself than deal with another.

:bulletred: Macabre :bulletred:
"Ooooh, he popped right open! Wasn't that a pleasant sound?"
Ripgut is a fairly disturbed individual. She is quite pleased with and excited by seeing others in pain and gore. Considering most that live in the wastelands have some sort of suffering akin to this, anyone she comes across is good to bring a nasty grin to her face. If given the chance, she will kill other dogs simply to get them out of the way and be sure to enjoy it in the process. Like many others in the wastelands, she is not at all opposed to cannibalism, and sometimes may even revel in it.

:bulletred: Maniacal/ Delirious :bulletred:
"Eugheh, i dunno sounds like fun to me."
Ripgut would probably be viewed by most as quite the crazy character. She often seems to be planted in her own world, viewing things around her drastically different from Estelle and taking nearly everything with a sort of twisted enjoyment. She has a rather sick sense of humor and will probably find some way to joke about pretty much anything.

:bulletred: Furious :bulletred:
"Pathetic scum, I'll tear you to pieces!"
Due to being separated from her family, Ripgut took on a rather intense disdain for most other canines alive in the world, especially Edeners. Unlike Estelle, she doesn't work quite as hard to avoid others and is not at all afraid of confrontation. If she were to ever come across a convoy, she would not hesitate to make sure she at least gave them a hard time. She is quick to judge and attack any stranger who may cross her path. If you are fortunate enough to simply have a conversation with her, it is very unlikely that it will be a pleasant one.




HISTORY

Estelle once lived quite happily in Eden with her parents and her sister, Colette. The two were very close, even from a young age, and quickly grew inseparable. They were constantly together, keeping and eye out for one another and partaking in many of the same activities. When the time came for the two young pups to be apprenticed, they decided to both begin training together to be come Hawkers on the convoy teams. Estelle, though frightened in many ways by the prospect of going out into the wastes, enjoyed the idea of doing something so valuable for her fellow canines in Eden. The two of them, strengthened by each other's presence and mutual encouragement, trained hard and seemed to be doing extremely well.

As time passed by, Estelle and Colette grew and eventually they were ready to graduate into fully fledged Hawkers. Estelle was ecstatic and proud of both her and her sister. She knew they both had worked extremely hard to get to this point, and with the help from one another, had finally made it. The two collie sisters could now officially call themselves Hawkers of the convoy teams.

Her first mission outside of Eden with her new status did not follow too far after. While preparing for the mission, she found— much to her surprise— that Colette would be on her team for the journey as well. Estelle couldn't have been more happy with this turn of events. Now they could truly be out together doing their jobs and offer their company to each other on such a dangerous task.

The team finally left Eden after all of its preparation protocols and checks. Though things didn't seem nearly as bad as they could have been, the outcome of the mission began roughly. There has not been much luck in finding retainable food items, and infected seemed to be hiding all over the areas they searched. Despite the somewhat discouraging results so far, Estelle and Colette were still determined to give their all, and make sure to thoroughly search and check anything they came across.

Estelle found a small area cluttered with various things that seemed like it might be promising. The two sisters sifted through the pile, hoping to find at least one item worth saving. Though as they were searching, the collies were suddenly caught by surprise by a lone infected. The two carefully attempted to fend the savage canine off, with other members of the patrol soon noticing the commotion and working to assist. They were successful, but unfortunately before help could arrive, Estelle received a nasty slash across her right front foreleg.

In pure panic, despite their presence, Estelle quickly attempted to hide the wound from the other members of the convoy, but was quickly found out. Colette, distraught as well tried her best to encourage her sister and stay with her as long as she could. As expected however, Estelle was not permitted to return back to Eden with the rest of her team. She was separated from her sister, and the safety of the home she had known.

Completely traumatized and devastated by being left out in the wastes, the discarded canine hovered by Eden's gates for weeks. She cried and pleaded to be let back in, to be with her sister and to not be left alone, but of course to no avail. The start of the infection beginning to take hold of her body and the trauma of losing her sister and her home triggered her first personality split, giving birth to Ripgut. Eventually when she realized there was nothing she could do she left Eden's gates and attempted to find somewhere she felt she could simply survive.

Estelle wandered the wastes, terrified and alone, dodging encounters with other dogs out of fear. She had no comfort of any form, nor did she have anyone to help her understand the new troubles she was beginning to experience. Not only were the signs of the infection starting to grow evident in her, but she also had episodes she couldn't explain. An occasional blur in her memory as if she had almost fallen asleep for a time, but instead of waking up where she last remembered being, she was far off in places she didn't even recognize, in unusual situations.

Despite herself, she pushes to continue to stay as strong as possible and not simply give up. She knows one day the infection will turn her around for the worst, but she holds out the hope of being able to see her sister again one day, hopefully before that ever happened.

RP EXAMPLE

(Taken from The-Rat-Packs RP)

Opportunities such as the one present only happened every so often, and Beatrix had full intentions of taking advantage of it. She had been sitting at the bottom of the hill for no more than a few moments, watching the humans' animated movements from what felt like a safe distance for the time being. Like many others, she as well had never seen anything like the carnival before. The bright lights and overflowing amounts of activity both intrigued and intimidated her in perspective, leaving a mixed chill to slip down her spine. She was excited about the opportunities and enjoyment that may come from the venue of course, but she was also wary of the numerous dangers it presented.

The blue-furred murid's whiskers twitched, presenting the only display of movement out of her as her copper-orange eyes shone examining the scene. However, just as her thoughts began to drift to a potential tactic, she was abruptly taken to other matters by a body rolling straight into her and knocking her face-first into the dirt. Her immediate reaction was to produce a startled squeak her previous thoughts of danger heightening her sharp sudden spike of adrenaline. As quickly as she could, Beatrix bolted back onto her feet, whipping her head up to search for what exactly had hit her.

As soon as she spotted it however, her apparent terror quickly faded into a frazzled irritation. Another—male— had been the perpetrator of the sudden knock down. Being half scared to death by a stranger was certainly a wonderful way to truly start off the night. Despite her obvious reaction to the event, she tried her best to settle her nerves in the slightest before confronting the other. "What was all that about? She huffed, her tone betraying her attempt to lighten it.
