    ‡ Archery: || For hunting, Rico prefers to use a longbow. She is fast with her arrows and extremely accurate. She combines her archery skills with camouflage, hiding away in the trees before she strikes you. You most likely won't even see it coming.

    ‡ Tracking || Rico has a strong nose. Her wolf senses enhances her ability to distinguish many scents that you normally wouldn't smell. She can retain the scent in her memory and track something for miles with ease. Not to mention she knows exactly what to look for when following someone's or something's trail. She can even know how long ago something was in an area based on how prominent the scent is.

    ‡ Camouflage || One would consider Rico to be a master of concealment. She'll lay low and silently crawl through tall grass or brush, carefully eying her prey. She knows how to camouflage well. Combined with her archery and tracking skills, she's a dangerous predator out in the wilds.

⌈S T R E N G T H S⌋
    ღ Agility || Rico is very agile. She has great muscle tone, allowing her to move quickly with pure strength and ease. In fact, she's a bit of an acrobat. Her enhanced senses make her sharp and perceptive, easily dodging any attacks coming her way from those wretched mutated beasts outside the walls. While she's a great hunter, she needs to be able to defend herself when those dangerous creatures make an appearance.

    ღ Resourceful || When in trouble, Rico's mind races. Her survival instincts instantly come into play and she'll make use of the most simplest of tools which can be the ultimate difference between life or death. She has trained her mind to be strong in the most dire of situations.

    ღ Body Build || Rico is constantly training herself to be stronger. You can never be too careful when treading outside the walls. She's been in a few dangerous incidents that she managed to get out of by fat chance. She considers herself lucky to be alive at times. Her wolf like qualities give her more strength and endurance than others. Even without a weapon, Rico can most certainly defend herself for a short while when in combat. Her nails are like claws and her fangs are extremely sturdy. She can kill a creature with her fangs alone if she wanted, but she finds that to be a bit too savage for her own liking.

    ⌈W E A K N E S S E S⌋
      Ψ Water || Rico panics whenever she has to go into a deep body of water. She can't really swim and is embarrassed by this quality of hers. You'd never know this about her until you're actually about to swim and Rico will make excuses not to every single time. This only applies to deep bodies of water that she can't actually stand in.
      Ψ Envy || Having no birth mother and a strange set of eyes, Rico definitely envies other girls that she meets. She'll often measure how much more someone has than she does. She does her best not to let envy get in her way, but sometimes she can act sort of strange around those she feels threatened by.
      Ψ Loss || Rico has very few people who she considers dear. The thought of losing any of them is unbearable. She'd rather die or sacrifice herself before losing someone. If she can save you, you better know damn well she's going to do everything in her power to help. But it's not just the death of someone she fears. She is quite aware how difficult and closed up she is, sometimes people just don't want to deal with this. If she had an attachment to you and you leave her, she'll be devastated and will disappear from the scene for awhile not wishing to speak with anyone.

|| Fierce † Cynical † Prideful † Diligent † Generous ||

Rico usually appears to be a non-approachable person. Her odd colored eyes tend to make people waver and uncomfortable. After all, it's not everyday you see someone with two different shaded irises. Since Rico was teased for most of her life, she found herself to become quite cynical. She never believes people are being kind to her just because. Such a thought is unfathomable in her mind. Usually she assumes they are trying to trick her so that they can humiliate her later. As a result, Rico has a bit of an anger front until she realizes she can trust you. Don't ever make the mistake of crossing her though, she'll rip your heart out. She doesn't put up with bullies. Nothing peeves her more than a bully.

Aside from her ferocity, Rico is actually very proud. She views anyone who belittles her just to be ignorant. For a long time she hated the fact that her eyes were two different colors, though in her teenage years she learned to embrace this little quirk she has. Rico doesn't really care about anyone's opinions unless you're a close friend. Friends, something Rico has so little of. The few friends she does have are very precious to her. But Rico never expects friends to stick around in her life. She's grown accustomed to being alone. Friends were always a nice thing to have, but not necessary.

Hardly anyone is a better at hunting than Rico, and she knows this. Naturally, she aced the tests in school placing her in the hunter category. She takes a lot of pride in her skillset. If you know Rico, you'll know that she never lets anything get in the way of her work. Many consider her to be quite diligent. She is constantly learning, assessing her surroundings and striving to be stronger. She's quite a tough cookie. However, even though Rico is always acting proud, stubborn, and pretending to be a mean person, this is really not the case. Rico just has a hard time showing her affectionate feelings towards someone. She believes if she appears to be soft around others it is a sign of weakness. But she loves deeply and will do everything in her power to protect her friends. She is very generous. She will always put someone else's needs before her own. If you're around her long enough, you're bound to notice Rico's softer side and feeble attempts to act like she doesn't care. She always cares, don't let her tough act fool you.

Whenever Rico is upset she gets very touchy. It's visibly noticeable whenever something is bothering her which makes her feel vulnerable and exposed. As a result, she'll start some stupid argument just to try and make the other person go away so she can be alone and suffer in silence. She cries a lot when she is by herself, always feeling a sort of empty void in her heart that she desperately wants to fill. But her pride gets in her way all the time. No one can ever know she is upset, so she'll dodge questions or walk away before you ask. If you can see through her facade, she'll become embarrassed, red in the face and very teary eyed. Basically, she'll lose control.

For as long as Rico can remember, all people did was make fun of her for those damn wretched eyes. Some found her different eye colors to be unique and beautiful but most found them to be strange. Others were envious. Every night Rico would cry alone in her room believing she was cursed. She never owned any mirrors because she felt ashamed. Eventually, she learned to ignore the comments although she felt very angry and bitter inside. One day she was so fed up with bullies that she lunged at a girl and clawed one of her eyes causing permanent damage. The girl became half blind. No one messed with her again afterwards. Instead, she was isolated and ignored. Rico hated it, but she would take isolation any day over the constant bullying. Since that day, Rico had a no tolerance policy towards bullies. She was known to stand up for any other girls that were being teased and harassed. She would then embrace the girls warmly, letting them know she would always be there for them if they ever needed anything.

Rico grew up as an orphaned child. Her birth mother did not want her because she saw Rico as an ugly disgrace. This always stuck with Rico and weighed heavily on her conscious even until now. But in her early teenage years, she learned to just embrace who she is. Her eyes made her unique. Other than that, she was no different than everyone else. Since Rico had no mother, she was lucky enough to be taken in by a young woman who was actually a hunter herself. She had educated Rico in the basics and tricks of hunting. Rico admired this woman more than anything. They were great friends, and perhaps Rico's only friend for awhile. The woman had given her so much courage. She was very kind to Rico and loved Rico's eyes. She had always told Rico to not think that she was cursed, but that she was blessed with such a fine beauty. At the end of the day, Rico took comfort in knowing she would always have this woman as her mother. As Rico grew older and learned more about hunting, she had set a goal for herself to become the finest hunter the area had ever seen. She would outdo her mother. It was as though she was a natural at it. Rico had no doubts about passing the exams in school to become a hunter. She wasn't really good at anything else. However, Rico's life took a wrong turn when her mother recently disappeared during a hunt. Her body was never found and it was as though she had vanished altogether. Rico has not seen the woman in four years. She hopes that one day her mother will return. But as time passes on, that hope becomes dimmer and dimmer.

⌈R E L A T I O N S H I P S⌋
+ Reyna || Even though Rico is a few years older, the two have an indescribable bond. They were both bullied in school, though Rico already had some experience with this. Naturally, Rico stood up for Reyna which eventually led to the two becoming friends. Reyna constantly tries to push Rico into trying new things and open herself up to people.
+ Minori || The two were never really friends, but since Rico is a hunter she often visits Minori's herbal shop. Rico admires the woman for her vast knowledge in botany and often buys a few things from her. They've been acquaintances for quite some time now. But neither have really opened up to each other before.
+ Octavia || Rico does not hold a high regard for many, but Octavia falls under this category. She respects her a lot and cares for both her and Reyna very much, even though she tries not to show it.
+ Kou || She finds the child to be cute, but has noticed she scares the girl. Rico wonders if it's her eyes or something else. Instead she prefers to keep her distance.
+ Jennora || Rico does not mind Jennora's company but she's often suspicious of her true motives.
+ Iria || TBA
+ Father || For some reason Rico can't explain, any time she sees Father she feels mesmerized and speechless. It's almost like he's some deity that puts her in a captivating spell. She often feels the need to impress around him.

So begins...

This day was far from average. It had begun with a crash and bang, the cause was an earthquake that rocked the tiny apartment and caused glass to shatter and things to fall out of place. Earthquakes were not unusual in their tiny city, they occurred about one time a month and were usually nothing more then a tremble in the ground so the fact that things actually fell was unusual. Octavia was already gone for work, her bed made neatly as always. Reyna crawled out from under her covers, avoiding the smashed photo of the two girls and Father and going to get the broom. It was her favorite picture of them all that she kept by her bedside. It was rare that Reyna got to see Father these days although Octavia seemed to be summoned by him almost every week. Reyna was jealous of course, but she understood that Father was a very busy man and taking time out of his schedule was most likely not an option.

After sweeping up the shattered glass and finding a new place to hang the picture, Reyna prepared herself a breakfast of scrambled eggs over the little fire in the kitchen. They had an oven and stove, but electricity was scarce and so lighting a fire to cook was the easiest option. Most electricity was used to keep the food in the fridge from spoiling, but everyone used theirs differently. Every house had power shares for each month; if you didn't use all of it your shares would carry into the next month, giving you more. If you used more then your allotted shares then you would have less the next month. Food was distributed evenly and depended on the size of your family and water was something that everyone had and there was no need to preserve. In fact, there was an overabundance of water and using it was encouraged.

Next on the list was preparing her lunch, a sandwich and bottle of juice was what she normally packed but today there was no bread. Reyna made a mental note to pick some up and grabbed a container, then put her leftover breakfast in it and stuffed the container into her bag. Finally she got dressed, pulling off the big shirt she wore as pajamas and putting on a pair of drab olive shorts with a hole for her tail and a white shirt. She laced up her boots and ran out the door, prepared to scavenge near the wall today.

There was even more excitement when Reyna got to work. The fox was minding her own business, doing what she did best when hear ears twitched, picking up the sound of paws on tile. Slowly Reyna turned to see a beast and began to walk backwards inside of the abandoned building, trying to stay silent. Crunch! Reyna looked down to see the bones of a human hand underneath her boot. The beast turned, its hideous maw pointed in her direction. A guttural cry erupted from the animal and it charged, gnashing its huge teeth. The pink haired female hesitated for only a second before drawing out the knife she kept strapped to her thigh. Such a small weapon would make little difference against one of these wolvaines but it would buy her time. She leaped out of the way of the wolvaines attack and ran forward, jabbing it in the eye and dragging her knife down. The beast howled in pain and snapped its mouth open and shut, turning in circles in an attempt to reach her. The wolvain shook its head with the intensity of a hurricane, but Reyna held on. Suddenly the beast seemed to smarten up and ran against the wall, smashing the girl between itself and the concrete. He snapped at her, biting her leg between its huge jaw and trying to crush the bone. Reyna screamed in pain and clawed at the beast, prying its mouth open with her fingers. Its teeth were like razors and cuts formed on her flesh as she pulled herself out and limped to the staircase.

The wolvain was on top of her once more, but this time Reyna was prepared. She jumped up, stepping onto its head and climbing the great beast's back. It jerked, not expecting her to sit on top of it and attempted to shake her off once more. Reyna grabbed her knife out of the beast's eye and tried to stab it through the head. The steel blade bounced off once, twice, three times before she struck a soft spot and the wolvain buckled, sending Reyna flying once more across the ground and straight into a hole. Dirt clouded the air and filled her lungs, causing a coughing fit that made the female curl up onto her side. Reyna had always had a weak heart; Octavia had insisted for her to become something safe like a healer or collector, but Reyna had insisted on becoming a scavenger. No time to pity herself or listen to Octavia's imaginary I told you so's. She had to find a way out of this hole.

The sun had set well below the horizon, the only light Reyna had was coming from the moon. If she could reach one of the vines crawling across the building walls she could pull herself out, but it seems that even the trees were smart enough to grow around the hole with nothing but dead soil. Claw marks were scratched into the dirt, blood was caked beneath her fingernails from trying to climb up or dig her way out. Things were beginning to seem hopeless when an idea struck her. Reyna took off her bag and pulled out a few articles of clothing she had found upstairs then tied them together, making a lasso type loop and swinging it upwards towards a vine with a hooked end. She missed the first time, and the fifth time, until finally she got it and pulled the cloth taught. With aching legs she began her ascent, her work painstakingly slow until finally she neared the top. Tear! Her smile of triumph quickly turned to an expression of horror as her makeshift rope broke and she clawed and scrapped up the last few inches as the clothing fell below her. Reyna pushed upwards, grabbing onto a branch as the rest gave way. A laugh of hysteria and relief rose from her throat, but she wasn't safe yet. Nighttime was the most dangerous part of the day, it was when the beasts were most active.

The fox was outside now, with nothing to show for today's work but a bite mark that went down the entirety of her left leg. Father was not going to be pleased. She had reached the edges of the city when her body could go no further and Reyna collapsed, weak from blood loss and tired from escaping the hole.
