Laika by XD-385 Laika by XD-385
Another commission from :iconlunis1992:Originally from the arctic north, Laika is a snow wolf who, for an uncertain amount of time, had been the captive of many human owners. As a result of her forced captivity and very poor handling, often ill and beaten while occasionally being left on the verge of starvation, she developed an exceptionally strong hatred and wariness of humankind. This hatred does not extend to Chariton Euthymius however, who managed to free her from her current captors at the time of their first encounter. A band of bandits who had used her as bait to draw him out so they could slay him for a bounty placed on him by an unknown third party.

The only human Laika trusts unconditionally is Chariton and has resolved to repay her debt to him by serving as his personal guardian. She is a very efficient hunter and a vicious fighter, but her true strength emerges under a full moon. The light that emits from their world's moon carries a subtle magical force that only specific strains of wolves are effected by. The amount is greatest during a full moon, which triggers a massive physical transformation into a muscular powerful bipedal state known the world over as "werewolves". Contrary to most legends, lycanthropy is not contagious and werewolves like Laika do not lose any of their mental capacity. Despite her usual form being that of a feral wolf, Laika's mind is on par with humans, technically making her and her kind man beasts where her "were" state makes her form take a closer form to a traditional lupine man beast.

While fiercely loyal to Chariton, Laika's hatred for humans still burns within her. Should the opportunity arise where she can take a human life without fear of reprisal, she will take that chance without a second thought unless ordered not to by her master.
