Nick Name: Ache
Full Name: Akane Phobos
Description: Deep red fur spotted with striped white from scars. Brown eyes. Missing the tip from her right ear. A couple teeth and at least one of her front teeth is almost always broken. Her bushy red tail was shortened in some accident so the end is flat. Wears a belt with many pouches.
Possessions: Her father's sling and hand-picked pebbles. Some beads from a necklace that had been her mother's.
Fearless, is never afraid. Never panics.
Is not a warrior but can fight and is good with a sling.
Athletic and agile; great at climbing and jumping.
Is never afraid. Her lack of fear has gotten her into a lot of trouble, gotten her injured and may someday kill her.
Is usually nursing a fresh injury. The lost end of her tail gives her phantom pain.
Personality: Is never afraid so she usually thinks rationally in dangerous situations. But she is not immune to other emotions like anger or grief that can cloud her judgment. Is a risk-taker.
Background: Being fearless runs in Ache's family. Ache's mother and grandmother had the same affliction and both died young; Ache never met her grandmother and her mother died while she was little more than a kit after taking on a couple of rats single-handed because they were 'too close' to their drey.
Ache was raised by her father. Early on he realized that Ache was like her mother and had no fear. He briefly tried to teach her how to be afraid but failed. So he did his best to teach her how to get out of trouble- it was impossible to expect her to stay out of trouble. So he taught her how to defend herself, how to use a sling, to weigh pros and cons, to think before acting. Tragically Ache's father died after his heart gave out, possibly stress from losing his wife and worry that his daughter would meet the same end. Ache was still young when she buried her father. She had no other kin and being there made her lonely and sad so she left.
She has been traveling and seeking adventure ever since.
