FEEL THE PULSE !
NAME ;; White Shadow
NICK-NAME ;; Shadow, Whitey
AGE ;; 8 (18)
SPECIES ;; Arctic Wolf
RANK;; Looking for Commander/General position, but Predator for now.
PERSONALITY ;; Shadow is very stuck in her ideas. You could hardly find anyone more stubborn about change than her. She has lived her whole life under the hierarchy of a pack and this is what is imprinted in her mind--not only through her own experiences, but through the strong instinct that comes with being a wolf. She is very much a leader and it is obvious in every fiber of her being. The way she walks, talks, acts, interacts, etc, all points to the position she was born for--leader of the pack. White Shadow carries herself with elegance and poise at all times--she is able to carry herself with such a high air about her while still respecting that she may not be the top dog. She grew up as the Alpha's daughter--she learned quickly how to carry herself as an alpha without challenging anyone's authority.
Shadow is a very old wolf, she has seen and learned so much through her entire life and her eyes are the only thing that would ever give away her age. She will bounce around like a puppy if she gets too terribly excited or playful, but normally she is very mono-emotional. She always tries to appear very calm and collected. Her emotions are very well masked, and years of doing that have actually trained her emotions to stay level. She is hardly phased by anything, truly. White Shadow is an alpha at heart, and after the 6 years she spent serving as one she is the model of a perfect alpha. Flexible in many ways, unless it means change to the pack structure and function. She is understanding in every way and is never one to take sides, not outwardly. She may seem a bit fake to the younger generation, but there is nothing fake to her--she has just grown to embody the ideals of her generation, and her species. She would never be able to be fake, she can hardly lie about things in everyday conversation. If you ask for her opinion she will give you her full, honest opinion, no matter how brutal it may sound. She only means it in the best way and that is the attitude she exudes.
HISTORY ;; White Shadow was born to the Alpha pair of a pack in the mountains of Northern Alaska. Her mother really ran the pack with her father keeping the peace for the most part--it was a good relationship, a perfect alpha pair. In Shadow's litter there were three. Kinguakkii, her older brother who took after their Gray wolf father. White Shadow herself had a twin, Samantha. Sam was identical in body build, but that was about it. Her fur was rougher with less fluff to it. Her eyes were also green instead of the soft amber of White Shadow's. The three got along well enough, playing together as any normal litter would. As they grew, King spent more time with their father and Shadow went along with him. The pair really enjoyed the company of their parents as they grew and learned everything they could even in their first few months. Sam went along with them, but got distracted easier and often found herself wandering off.
When the trio was 4 months old they found their way to a lake nearby. It was the winter and the lake was frozen over. King, being the smarter one of the group at that point stayed at the shore watching his sisters wrestle on the ice. He warned them more than once to stay off, but they didn't listen so he resorted to watching them. They were having a grand old time when Sam threw Shadow off of her and toward shore. She barked and crouched a bit, throwing her front paws down playfully. That act cracked the ice and the 4 month old Sam fell through and into the freezing water. Shadow ran toward the hole, but was caught by her brother who held her back as she tried to get to her sister. They never saw Sam again. Sam wasn't dead however--she somehow, found her way to the thin layer of ice around the other side of the lake and came up for much needed air. She was close to blacking out. She saw her siblings at the other end walking away and she blacked out. When she woke up again she was in the same place, freezing cold and only remembered her siblings leaving her there. Not trying to save her at all. A bitterly cold Sam left that day vowing revenge on her siblings for leaving her to die. Neither of them ever knew she was still alive.
Meanwhile, Shadow and King grew up and pack troubles emerged. When the two were just over a year old their parents had another litter, but humans had come in and taken the litter. The pack was furious. Kiara was devastated and Romano was set to get them back. The pack was torn between those angry enough to follow the humans, and those who weren't wanting trouble with the humans. Many had seen what they could do--this wasn't the first encounter. A few months prior their one of their healers had been shot, not killed, but badly wounded. King couldn't stand his parent's agony and set out to find his young siblings. White Shadow insisted on following, but stayed at her brother's will. She helped her parents recuperate from the mess and worried with them as her brother took longer and longer. After a month of waiting for her brother's return, Shadow and her parents admitted that he would most probably never return and they went on without him.
Just after Shadow turned two years old a fire started by the humans ravaged through their territory, destroying everything in sight. The pack was caught in the middle of it all and many members died in the fire--including White Shadow's parents as well as the Beta and Delta. With all high-ranking members lost and a handful of members who hadn't fled, Shadow was now the reigning alpha. She led the remaining pack to mountains further from the humans and they lived there in peace for at least two years. After those two years, Shadow found her mate, Lupen, and their relationship was much like the one her parents had had. They loved each other more than any words could explain. The pack flourished under their reign. The Midnight Frost Pack as they had come to be called lived through many things. Within the year of White Shadow taking a mate they had their first litter, a large litter of six. Two years later a second litter was born, also of six. Soon after the pack came into a large conflict. One of their first litter came back with vengeance. Penzi left things shaken, and shortly after a pack made from anger came to border the Midnights. Their alphas were Simon, Lupen's bitter brother, and Sam, White Shadow's vengeful sister.
The packs clashed and many were lost including Shadow's brother who had returned and joined the pack--mated to Lupen's sister Ume who also was lost to the fighting. Sam and Simon were defeated by the Midnights and their pack left. White Shadow and Lupen relocated their pack as well and recuperated. Nearly a year after these events bring us to present day.
After the relocation, humans stirred trouble in the pack again. They captured the alpha pair and in the fury White Shadow found herself human and extremely confused. Already caged, they brought her to the Keepers who tossed her in this place after some testing. She has no idea what has become of Lupen or her pack and she worries for them both. She hardly knows what to think about this 'gift' as the humans named it. All she knows is she wants to be back with her pack, back with her mate, and never having found this 'gift' of hers.

BODY BUILD ;; Shadow is extremely muscular for a female, but it's mainly hidden underneath her fur.
FUR ;; Very pure white/cream, medium length and very silky and soft.

HUMAN DESCRIPTION;; Shadow, as a human, is actually fairly small and weak. She is about 5' 5" and a bit pale, with long silver-y white hair. She wears a pale pink prom-style dress--certainly not of her choosing. She despises this 'gift' of sorts, and would only ever shift if her life depended it. In fact it's the only time she really could shift. She doesn't know how. Out of extreme fear, or really the extreme of any emotion she would shift. And in her case she never lets her emotions get so extreme.
