**Species:** Vystian Wolf
**Appearance:** Borris is large, for a Vystrian wolf. He is almost 4' tall and has a barrel chest. His front paws are naturally splayed when he walks, and he does his best to keep his fangs within his mouth. He has a small set of horns on his head, though they're more like rock hard knobs on his head than horns. His pelt is an almost steel blue, though it leans more to the grey side of the spectrum. His pelt is also crossed with bright cobalt blue slashes, though they are most dense on his flanks, and a few unnatural stripes on his shoulder and head where the fur has turned pure white. He used to have a white ferret companion, but that's explained later.
**Abilities:** Borris is a lethal tracker and can follow even the faintest scent, but his build often leaves a rather large trail behind him. An affinity for the earth element also provides a strange sense of another's motion through his paw pads, but it only works while standing still. Most think his large size is also a benefit, but his attacking strategies usually involve running away, since actually fighting is a clumsy affair. He has some minor barrier capabilities, where he can create up to three moderate barriers about the size of his paw, but without his companion's healing compliment, he isn't confident in using it. Although he also has intense mindspeak abilities, being able to feel some of what the other feels in times of great connection, he prefers privacy.
**History:** Borris was originally from a small pack, barely ten members of mostly dire wolves, who had no need for a wolf who didn't fight. The pack tried to convince him to fight for most of his time there. They started by telling him how difficult it was to defend him when a fight broke out, or how painful it was to not be able to depend on him to defend the territory. They tried to offer him more of a share of each kill if he would just go out and protect the small bit of territory they had like the rest of them. Some of the larger dires began to ignore him, or not so playfully shove him, or steal his portion of the meals he helped find. They tried threatening to tell every nearby wolf that he was diseased and needed to be put down. The last tactic they attempted was to force Borris to fight for the defense of his familiar, a lively white ferret he had lovingly nicknamed Snowfire. The pack went too far, accidentally killing the small creature while Borris was linked tightly to it. He felt a sharp measure of his companion's pain before its mind just... slipped away. Borris was distraught and actively fought for the first time in his life, going straight for the killer. He ended up walking away from that fight with a few serious scratches around his head and shoulders. His pack was ecstatic about his sudden fighting spirit, but Borris disappeared as soon as he was able. He wandered for a time, mainly living off of fish and small game, before he stumbled into the Myr pack grounds. A realization that he was lonely helped fuel his next decision. He hopes this time around will be better and currently tracks the pack's current whereabouts.
**Personality:** Borris is a lively sort who would like to trust, but has a few issues when it comes to relationships. He's prone to teasing, and avoids topics about his past and companion. Privacy is rather important to him, and he gets rather snappish when others try to use mindspeak with him. If and when he does make a connection with the rest of the pack, he grows overprotective ((for obvious reasons)) especially toward those who he is convinced can't defend themselves.
