Animal Appearance
  • Nikuar!
  • On the smaller side for a Werejaguar. Runt among her peers. Still has that chunk, though.
  • Golden base with classic black rosettes and lighter underside.
  • Soft fur. Very groomable. Just doesn't take well to it.
  • Dull red eyes.
Appearance
Pale-skinned and peppered with freckles. Although she is covered in a myriad of tattoos (1, 2) that she has collected over the years. Black hair is typically drawn back into a messy bun or left down in an almost bed-head fashion. While her outfits typically are very comfort forward. Nika's over-sized clothing options have a tendency to make her look even smaller than she already is.
Personality
  • Worrier.
  • Prone to down moments more often than not.
  • Human thinking blurs with jaguar problem solving sometimes.
  • Unexpected loud sounds and storms promote a healthy level of fear. Sometimes an unhealthy level.
History

PRE-ARRIVAL

  • Relatively normal childhood being the middle child in a busy household of three girls.
  • Excelled in creative recreations throughout school and seemed to be on the course towards a bright future.
  • Cracked under the pressure of expectations with her future, dropped out of school.
  • Drifted and roamed for some time before coming back around to her creative works in the form of freelancing.
  • Temporarily settled into an almost ideal living situation with a partner before becoming restless.
  • Took off with no destination in sight and ended up here.

2019

  • A little lost and a lot bored in Cedar Creek, Nika makes friends with Iago through a late night meal.
  • While trying to she made a friend(?) in Asha along with some odd business.
  • What's that? Another (unbeknownst to her) were friend? She meets Alice who is quick to teach her about stones and soothe some restlessness.
  • Better learns about shifting, spurs confusion and lots of concern for the bone snapping. )):
  • Becomes a vampire snack, while visiting the planetarium. She found it exciting. Thinks 'Henry' is fun.
  • Learns a lot, cuddles a jaguar and is given the opportunity to change. Talk about a lot to unpack.
  • (Not so) Oops, turned into a werejag by Asha.
  • With the full moon on the horizon, she meets a prowl leader named Frank. Ground rules are learned however she declines joining the prowl. She's also the source of some unknown tension. Whoops.
  • Things are more or less smooth riding with a powerful sire by her side. Although there is obvious tangled moments when learning to live life with a wild jaguar in her mind.
  • There's also tangling with feelings for a certain tiger.

2020

  • Sets out to work on starting a prowl with Asha in Ridgefield.
  • Come February she gets a bit more of a grip on this were life. Not so volatile but still left with plenty to be learned.
  • In early March, a prowl is formed by Queen Asha and Nika fills the roll of second. With that she moves into the city to keep a better eye on things.
  • During a full moon shift in April, she turns someone. Surprisingly named April!
