Art of Character: Love Interests

Stori Tori is doing another block linkup, this one on love interests. It took a while for me to think of a love interest that I actually have. I’m not very big on romance.

Introducing Lilly from Creatures Before Chaos, the prequel novella to Country in Chaos

*Photos found on Wikipedia.

And here is an old picture of her family. Sinac, her husband, is the wolf in the middle. Grey and Blanca are two of her three children. 

The Questions:
1.) What does your character’s eye, skin, and hair color tell about him/her? 
Lilly has more grayish eyes than her children or husband. Her fur is thick and white, hinting that she may be part Arctic wolf, though her genetics, other than the fact that she’s got human genes in her body, is unknown to her.

2.) What does your character’s hairstyle tell about him/her?
She tries to keep it clean, but her fur doesn’t have much style, other than shedding out in the summer and being thicker in the winter.

3.) What does your character’s default outfit tell about him/her?
She doesn’t have an outfit, other than her fur.

4.) Does he/she have an object(s) he/she carries around a lot?

5.) Does he/she have any particular scars or birthmarks?
Yes. She has a scar on her shoulder from when she ripped out her tracking chip.

6.) Does he/she have any piercings or tattoos?

7.) How does he/she carry themselves? Shoulders back? Eye contact? Eyes down? Slumped shoulders?
She’s confident, but she tends to consider Sinac her alpha and not hold her head too high. She will make eye contact when she’s challenging someone.

8.) What is his/her default expression? Smiling? Frowning? Solemn?
Just the usual wolf expression, I guess. She does smile and wag her tail when she’s happy.

9.) Does he/she wear make-up or face paint?
If she’s hunting in the summer, she might try to cover her fur with mud so she doesn’t stick out as much.

10.) Does his/her physical appearance change at any time? For example: If they have a power do their eyes glow or hair turn blue?

Bonus: Does the character change his/her appearance to impress the love interest?
No. She met him long before she worried about appearances.
