Wolf - She/Her
Watchworth Manor Oakrun
Willowglade
June 26 (47)

A. Wuulf

     A mature gray wolf, dark fur that is starting to spot white and near her ears, and bright gray eyes, usually seen peering at you from the shadows of dusk or dawn, with an overly toothy, but warm, (at least she thinks) smile.

     When seen properly, which is infrequent, Ms. A Wuulf is seen in outfits that seem a bit out of place, antiquated uniform pieces for shopping and elaborate, if off color ball gowns for a jaunt in the forest. You would swear she blindly pulled her outfits from some oddball trunk left locked away for 30 to 80 years and you would be quite correct.

     The only constant seems to be the ink splatter that adorns her fingers and garment on a near constant basis, for if she is seen, she is seen in a shadow or apart from the crowd at a town gathering, writing something furiously in one of her many notebooks, frequently after observing her neighbors for a time.

     Back when the Shademoor was Founded, The Watchworth family of wolves were scholars and guides to their more vulnerable friends. Living in one of the oldest homes, the Watchworth Wolves became a well respected family within Shademoor, but has since moved on to different forests, leaving Watchworth Manor to crumble behind them, leaving only ghost stories and myths. Until two years ago, the lights suddenly came back on inside the dusty old home, and ever since, strange things happen in Willowglade at night.

     The now sole owner and habitat of the Manor, Ms. Alaide Watchworth Wullf, is an eccentric writer and ex-adventurer, having returned home under mysterious circumstances after years abroad. With so much house and history to rediscover, and a tendency to walk in the woods a night, she was in town a full two years before the rest of the critter knew that she was there, and was so invested in discovering the secrets of the old house, became a bit of a recluse within her home in the process. Fearing that the forest has moved on without her, A. Wuulf has decided that she must brave the world outside her home and make friends, but...after so long, she has quite forgotten how.

     She is forgetful, a touch shy, and prone to talking to herself, or simply acting as if no one else was around, which was just fine before, but now has given her an odd, maybe even sinister reputation among the critters. Living in crumbling manor, walking in the moonlight and dressing like something out of a slightly mad history book may not help either.

     But what she has not forgotten is her love of writing, research and documenting. Ah! A solution! She will go among them in secret, record her findings meticulously and make a plan to find among them just the best of friends! What could be strange about someone slinking around taking notes on everyone?

     Beyond that, those who do get close to A. Wuulf with find, a warm, quirky woman who loves telling stories and citrus sweets, and at one time, was a lover of dance and party, though the manor is in no shape to host anything without some intense care and repair. She may have forgotten the steps at present, but with the right people, even this old wolf may find her music again.

PC Agatha Webster.png
Hedgehog - She/Her
32 Hedgerow Lane
Brambleton
November 18 (68)

Mrs. Agatha Webster

     Small, brown and round, with yellow-tipped spines. She can often be seen going into the woods with a basket or coming out with a basket full of mushrooms or berries. If she happens to be sitting, she is often knitting if not having a tea cup in her hand.
     Agatha lives with her beloved husband Henry, who is a bit more reclusive than his social wife. But in turn Agatha also enjoys a quiet night knitting and drinking tea at home in front of a fireplace. She has recently retired from her job as a librarian, while Henry has turned over his general store to one of their daughters to run. Her sister Augusta lives next door, and they frequently visit each other to have tea and cakes while knitting.

     Agatha loves to socialize with all kinds of critters outside of her neighborhood and social circles. Anyone who loves books or maps or any kinds of crafts will find a willing conversation partner in Agatha. She is a bit of a busybody, but she always means well and doesn't consider that she's gossiping; she mainly is interested in her fellow critters. While she goes by Mrs. Agatha Webster, she's not big on titles and definitely is never offended if you were to leave it out.

Bobcat - They/Them
8 Hawthorn Lane
Willowglade
February 24 (35)

Briony Fable

     Briony Fable is a contradictory sort of Critter: nervous and shy, but still determined and enduring. They are a soft gray Bobcat with brownish-black spots and stripes. The tufts of fur at the top of their ears and the sides of their face are especially fluffy, particularly in the fall and winter months. Briony is missing their back left leg, and have adjusted to getting around without it. They carry around them an air of wanting to participate, but being unsure if they are invited. Briony is new to Mosswood, and can often be found exploring around that next tree, eyes full of wonder.
     Willowglade is home to many bold beasts; Briony is a Beast, and would like to be Bold, so this seemed like the right place for them to start. They are a quiet Bobcat, but quick to offer help to those that need it, whether their baskets are too heavy to carry or if they need someone to sit with them in companionable silence. There's a pull and tug to Briony's disposition; they often waffle between eagerness and reserved distance. Those who have spent time with them around their outdoor fire pit have all been treated to delicious, toasty treats perfumed with smoke and pine needles.

Squirrel - She/Her
21st Branch from the Top
Pine Valley
Willowglade
August 22 (80)

Lady Chessie Von Chesterfield

     Lady Von Chesterfield is silver gray with a very fluffy tail and a sweet smile.
     Chessie is pretty old, (as you can see.) She has lived just about everywhere -- city, country, seaside, and right here and now -- retired in Mosswood! She does have two very dear friends here, and does look forward to meeting some other critters. Her family is pretty huge, 17 children and 42 or so grandchildren. Most of them live in the country where food is plentiful and there is lots of space to run.

     She is pretty mild mannered, and likes to bring people together and look out for those needing help. She, myself, has been chased away from many a bird nest, in her day! That is why she chose to retire here in the town of Mosswood. Peace and quiet and lots of fresh nuts, berries and seeds!

PC Clovis Hollowthorn.png
Serenity_abc_W.png
Fox - He/Him
Hollowthorn Hills
The Carriage House
Brambleton
May 29 (27)

Mr. Clovis J. Hollowthorn

     Clovis is a well dressed fox, though a few items are worn at the edges. His fur coat is clean and shiny as he values being well kept. His left ear has a notch that if you're lucky he'll share the story of the adventure in which he gained it. He has a flash of white on his muzzle that reaches a bit further up around his eyes than average.
     Clovis is of the Hollowthorn family, one of the more well known in Brambleton due to their social stature. They have owned one of the main shoppes in town, the Brambleton Bizarre, since nearly the start of the community and carries all sorts of goods.

     It was expected for Clovis to take over the business but instead he has insisted on traveling and adventuring to find new ways to support the community. He has always believed that a united community is a well cared for one and he wishes to do more than just sell goods. He hopes that his little sister Claire will take over the business (perhaps keeping him as a partner) in the future.

     He is ebullient and cheerful to speak with and will happily chatter away, discussing other communities and things he's found on his journeys.

PC Ephraim Lockwood.png
Serenity_abc_W.png
Skunk - He/Him
102 Thornbush Row
Willowglade
April 30 (30)

Dr. Ephraim Hobart Lockwood

     Ephraim is a skunk of average height and slender build. He has a thin white stripe down his head to his tail, and dark eyes. He often wears a full three-piece gray or black suit but will switch to something lighter if the weather is particularly warm. When he’s off the clock to spice things up he will sometimes wear his favorite olive-green suit.
     Ephraim was born and raised in a large city with his parents and younger sister. His sister, Delphina, is of poor health and so when Ephraim was old enough, he attended a prestigious medical school to become a doctor in order to better help his sister.

     After moving from practice to practice around the city, Ephraim decided to move with Delphina out to Mosswood in hopes that the fresh air would do her good. He has just set up shop, and his little doctor’s office will soon be open for business in Willowglade.

     Dr. Lockwood is a polite young man who at first may appear rather stiff. In reality he is a generous and kind skunk who will do anything to help his friends and neighbors. He is excited to set up his own practice and hopes that he will become a welcome member of the community, though the country life is new to him, and he doesn’t quite know what to expect.

Skunk - He/Him
The Butter Cup
4 Toadshollow Ave.
Willowglade
December 7 (33)

Mr. Fable Moonrose

     Fable is a black and white skunk with traditional markings, hexagonal glasses, and very casual attire (or just an apron).
     Fable is the oldest of two siblings in the Moonrose family, with the younger being his sister, Honey. About two years ago, their parents retired and moved to the beach, leaving their tea shop to Fable. In his care, the Butter Cup has flourished. Fable has started growing his own tea plants and herbs behind the shop, hosts events, and brought a certain air of nurturing that his parents just didn't have. Fable loves to take care of people, and if he sees someone feeling down in the dumps, they'll probably be invited for a free cuppa.

     He is an anxious little skunk, and is afraid of many, many things. He's always worried about having a skunky incident, but the Butter Cup is his safe place and Fable almost always feel at ease there. Honey, who also works in the shop, is trying to force Fable to face his fears. It's not going so well. He loves tea, baking, reading, long walks, and all things cozy. Fable can be scatterbrained and wishy-washy at times, and isn't very good at following through on his plans.

     Anyone looking for a safe place, a quiet spot, or a friend can find it at the Butter Cup!

PC Helen Hopper.png
Hedgehog - She/Her
Bumpy Tree Root
Brambleton
July 3 (50)

Helen Hopper

     Helen is a round little hedgehog with sparkling and inviting dark eyes. She loves to wear flowers on her head, and yellow ones are her favorite! She often wears a long apron or big full skirt that she created. You can tell what she is up to by her outfit - is it the paint splattered apron? The skirt with yarn and thread trimmings stuck everywhere? Her fancy ribbon and lace pinafore that's perfect for strolling in the sun? Helen's body may have some prickles, but her warm smile and community spirit let everyone know she's full of fun and kindness!
     Helen lives in the burrow next to her shop in the roots of a large tree in Brambleton. It's her ancestral home, and she comes from a long line of independent and resourceful hedgies. Helen's hands (and mouth!) are never idle. She loves to talk, teach, and eat! The only time she's not moving as fast as her little feet can carry her is when someone shares a great story. She loves to sit and listen and let the story take root in her busy little mind.

     Helen loves to be creative, gossip, and to help the critters of her community. She will never pass up a sweet treat or an eye-catching piece of material that can be crafted into a new creation. In her shop, Creativi-Tea, critters can join a crafting class, buy or trade for the perfect item for their own project, or request a special item for their personal or business use! It's more fun to craft when you have a lovely cup of tea to compliment the project. (And it's more likely that a friend will linger to share all the latest with a tempting cup!)

     Helen loves the Sun, and it makes sense because she was born on July 3rd under the sign of the Dandelion. Helen has a warm smile, loves to visit her friends, and have old and new friends visit her special shop to get creative and have a sip!

PC Hemlock Hallowell.png
Raccoon - She/Them
7th Oak Hollow
Brambleton
August 2 (38)

Mx. Hemlock Hollowell

     Bright-eyed and sleek-tailed, Hemlock takes in the world around her with whiskers forward and ears flat. She almost always looks guilty, as though she were caught doing something she shouldn't have, and she is often jumpy about loud noises or sudden movements.
     Hemlock is new to the area, having appeared in town one day somewhat abruptly. The Raccoon was looking for a new home, and eagerly accepted the offer of an empty oak tree in Brambleton. Hemlock has no furniture and no clothing other than what she arrived with, though they can often be seen busily at work gathering leaves, branches, and any discarded items or scraps of cloth from the communal trash areas.

     Quiet and somewhat shy, the newcomer nevertheless always has a nervous smile and a wave for anyone who happens by, and the front of her little Oak Hollow is starting to look a bit more homey as she decorates it with leaves and branches.

PC Lobelia Swiftfoot.png
Serenity_abc_W.png
Hare - She/Her
13 Wildflower Lane
Brambleton
June 9 (28)

Ms. Lobelia Swiftfoot

     Lobelia is a russet-colored hare with a pointed face and shiny black eyes. She has white markings beneath her nose and chin, and the tips of her long ears are a very dark umber. When out and about, she wears sundresses and jumpers, occasionally paired with a straw hat. However, as she works, she typically opts to wear trousers and a buttoned-down shirt with an apron, for ease of movement.
     A native to Mosswood, Lobelia is a self-starter who worked hard to build her own business in Brambleton from the ground up. She does not have a storefront, or even a shop name, but she conducts her work from a studio in the back of her burrow. This tidy room houses a rainbow array of threads, fabrics, and parchments, neatly organized with the proper instruments and accoutrement for binding and repairing books. Her clientage was formed by word of mouth or from being discovered at the flea market, where she sells blank page journals she has bound.

     Although a bit of a workaholic, Lobelia finds time throughout the day to rest and find enjoyment in the little things. Her home is a cozy place, with a comfortable sofa by the fireplace, blankets readily at hand, a kettle continuously brewing, and, of course, shelves lined with books. She likes collecting small things and has an album where she keeps a collection of stamps and pressed flowers. On the wall of her kitchen is an impressive display of teaspoons she has acquired throughout the years.

     She enjoys dropping in on one of her many family members in Mosswood for current news and gossip. Word travels fast through the warren! The younger hares can always look to Lobelia to be a listening ear and to give her ofttimes not-so-sage advice. They also know that to get on her good side, she has an acute weakness for baked goods, especially strawberry rhubarb pie.

     While she may seem like a bit of a homebody with her comfortable routine, deep down Lobelia has a heart for adventure. When she gets the itch to explore, she uses it as an opportunity to find new places, meet new critters, and to learn something new.

Broadoak B & B
2425 Broadoak Way
Willowglade
April 17 (65+)

Madame Marmalade (Marm)

     Madame Marmalade is a senior Eastern Fox Squirrel. No one would ever call her old, not in her thinking, nor in her way of being. Her rust colored fur has a few strands of silver in it. She likes to dress nicely in brighter colors to meet her guests at the B & B, but can be seen in less colorful clothes when she is cleaning between guests. On her way to Mosswood she happened to find a beautiful sparkling silver chain, on which hangs a small golden key. She wears this around her neck and never takes it off.
     Marmalade had several litters and all her children are doing well. With the death of her husband and her family doing well she decided she needed a change. She decided to open up a B& B in the tree she had moved into. She noticed there were 3 empty nests in it that will suit birds and any other animal that can nest in a tree. She has furnished her B & B well and sees to the comfort of her guests. Her breakfasts are excellent and her guests are sure to rave about her cooking. She is very social and has had her friends and neighbors trust in her old neighborhood. She can be counted on to keep a confidence and help out in a pinch. She has thought that she would like to learn more about Mosswood and thinks adventuring could also liven up her life.

Owl - She/Her
Talonscourt Roost
Upper Branch Twelve
ElderPine
Willowglade
December 13 (70+)

Mama Marjorie

     Marjorie is an older horned owl, quite round and quite soft. Her deep brown feathers have turned whiter over time, so she is often mistaken for a snowy owl, though she is slightly smaller than her snowy cousins. Her large eyes match her feathers of earlier seasons, a deep rich soil colour, flecked with sunlight. She's missing a couple of feathers under her left wing, but that doesn't affect her flying.. she's still as silent in the air as she ever was, at least on the rare occasion when she chooses to leave her nest-home, that is.

     Everyone just knows her as "Mama Marjorie". She's been around as long as anyone can remember, and nobody would remember her last name except it's the name of her roost; it's also how anyone speaks of her late mate ("Mr. Talonscourt"). Marjorie misses her dearest Hoobert and all her younglings - both her own and those she's taken in along the way. She's recently become a true empty-nester, and hasn't quite adjusted to the overly quiet state of things.
     Mama Marjorie is known as a kindly old Owl, wise and motherly as the nickname would suggest. A teacher and mentor who raises and takes in many a youngling (who will always be younglings to her no matter their actual age). She will, however, give a good scolding where needed, though sparingly; being on the receiving end of a Mama Marjorie 'make better choices' talk means something has gone rather amiss. Willowglade's Mama is observant but does turn her sharp eyes away from some mistakes - it's the best way to learn after all.
     She loves her baking - seed bread is her specialty - and keeps her wings busied with a variety of crafting arts as a way to fill her home again. Visitors are always welcome, as is news and gossip, and all manner of correspondence.
     It's curious that someone with so much knowledge and experience and a social nature isn't seen outside her home and attends no seasonal gatherings...

Nathaniel Wilde

             Nathaniel is a medium-sized, charcoal rat, with salt and pepper hairs around his snout and ears.
     Classically trained at the Rodent Academy of Dramatic Art, award winning actor Nathaniel Wilde toured with the Reverie Songbird Company for twenty years. While with the company, Wilde played prolific roles such as Antonio in The Merchant of Verminice, Iago in Slothello, Owlet in Owlet, and Petruccio in The Taming of the Shrew, as well as minor roles such as the snake in Anteater and Cleopatra. After leaving the RSC, Wilde performed at Brookside Theatre and Felldale Hall, where he won the Goshawk Award for best supporting actor for his role as Algernon Moncrieff in The Importance of being Tortoise. He was also nominated for the Centennial Oak Award twice for playing Orgon in Moleère’s Tartuffe and Luka in The Bear. After his great success, Wilde directed several plays at independent theaters, and performed original works. He retired to Pebblebrook, seeking peace and quiet away from the spotlight.
     Nathaniel is used to the hustle and bustle of performing arts life, and even though he seeks solace in Pebblebrook, he desperately wants entertainment. He enjoys any lively social gathering, especially if there’s music. Nathaniel also loves any opportunity to share his vast theater knowledge with anyone who will listen.

November 16 (20)

Mr. Oliver Oullins Plum

     Oliver is a hedgehog with copper brown spines and caramel skin. He's pretty average in size, not too small and not too big. You'll rarely see Oliver with brown spines though! Cloud loves to use body paint that he makes to paint his spines light blue and white! Much like a cloudy sky!
     Oliver was born in a rather large town, so he often kept to himself, as no one really shared his interests in adventuring. Cloud loved to explore the town in new ways, seeing it in different angles and in various lights. But, the thing that cloud loved the most was adventuring outside of the town. There were many more possibilities of running into ancient ruins, old buildings and more! He had a few friends in his town, with which they all shared their love of painting. Oliver particularly loves to paint cloudself. Although, cloud has always wanted to paint on other creatures though!

     Overall, Oliver is a kind hedgehog who just wants friends to go on adventures with him. If someone asks cloud to go anywhere, he will drop whatever he is doing!

PC Oliver Sumberly.png
Boar - He/Him
7 Mudwallow Way
Brambleton
July 7 (35)

Mr. Oliver Felix Sumberly

     Oliver Sumberly is a boar with a reddish gold coloration. His skin is a soft pink under all his fur, and his eyes are soft blue. He has two little tusks that he makes sure are the whitest of whites. From the top of his head all the way down his back, he has a shock of white-gold that travels the length of his spine. The tips of his ears are tufted in a similar white-gold. He stands a bit taller than most other critters.

     Oliver is an orderly fellow. He often times can be found organizing his shoppe of charms, dusting off old charms, and putting a shine on windows. He takes a certain amount of pride in the little gifts that house his particular brand of Mojo. There is a certain amount of love he has for them. He'll talk to each one as if they were a creature or pet that could hear him. Those that have shopped at Sumberly's Serendipities have seen him muttering to the little charms; chastising them for not telling him they needed something, or apologizing he didn't get to them sooner.  

     He is such a critter-person! He loves to host tea and dinner parties amongst his friends. While he may not be the best cook, he does enjoy cooking up new recipes, especially mushroomy foods. When he is at his shoppe, he is constantly calling out to passers-by; not necessarily inviting them in to buy something, but asking about how their day has been going, if they need any help, or if they're new in town if they need any directions, or a place to stay while they get themselves set up. 

     This boar also is one of the more persistent Critters. Oliver has been known to work at a problem and find solutions until he finds one that works (occasionally even a solution or two that don't really work). 

     Oliver grew up in Brambleton in his familial home: with his father Theodore, his mother Elizabeth, and his older sister, Heather.  They grew up in their modest home that even had a small flower garden with a few kitchen herbs that his mother enjoys cooking with. 

     Currently, Oliver enjoys going to the town’s pub, gossiping, and playing games. He also loves celebrations, and tries to contribute as much as he can to them when the Neighborhood has one.

Miss Paisley Peppernut

     Paisley is a young light brown hare that's a little on the small side. She has a fluffy white tail and her whiskers are slightly curly. She likes wearing ear accessories as well as a white café apron embroidered with lilies.
     Paisley's a young hare with a dream to be the number one restauranteur in the forest! She specializes in farm-to-table herbivorous cuisine at her little restaurant, Paisley's Place, and loves to feed people and listen to their stories, and will give critters down on their luck a good hot meal in exchange for some light chores. She's the second oldest of seven children and learned a lot from her parents on healthy eating and cooking for a crowd. Paisley is outgoing and cheerful, but secretly worries if she's capable enough, compared to some of her siblings that have already found success. Paisley loves herbal teas and enjoys a cup every morning (no sugar, she's sweet enough.) She also is very fond of strawberries. Her other interests include tending to her herb and vegetable garden, collecting ear accessories and writing short stories on her heirloom typewriter.

Pascalette Cobbletail

     Pascalette is a young otter with slightly longer chestnut fur, with the ends lightened by her near constant sun-bathing. Her fur shies with an almost glitter when she swims. She has warm brown eyes and is nearly alway adorned with a paw-made headpiece, made up of flowers, plants and treasures that she finds when she dives down below the waves.
     Pascalette Cobbletail, or as she would prefer her friends to call her "Lette", is a nomadic otter who has recently found her way into the rivers, streams and shores of Mosswood. A happy, laid back young lady, she spends her days napping in the sun, dives for treasures below the water and crafting beautiful decorative pieces from what she finds there at her roving stand called Buckler's Bounty.

     Being a traveler, she has many stories to tell and loves to hear them from her neighbors, especially if the have anything to do with the magic and mojo in the world. She has a particular passion for sea sprits and creatures, and is sure that sh has run into what she calls "mere-otters"(seals). Weather her neighbors believe it or not is another story.

     Lette is a bright and happy critter, but her curious and nomadic nature often lead her to wandering off or floating away for days at a time. She is open, Whimsical, always happy to make a new friend and would love to find others that dance to the beat of a different drum.

Pip Pott

     Pip is a small skunk with a large white stripe down their back, a piebald tail, and twinkling eyes. They can often be seen wandering down the road in a handknitted sweater and sturdy gloves to protect them as they forage.
     Pip moved away from Mosswood to go to University, but has since returned to take over the family farm. The front room of their house is filled with books, ink stained papers, and forgotten cups of tea.

     Pip is a socially minded skunk, with a large root cellar that is open to the public when the harvest is lean. In the winter, their favorite season, they sell and deliver warm soup to neighbors, and are never happier than when they're forging a path through snowdrifts with an armful of paper packages of books and soups. During the warmer months, Pip can be found foraging for herbs and seeds, preserving food, or exploring nooks and crannies of the area that no one goes near.

     While Pip loves visitors, they often have attacks of shyness and hide when an unexpected neighbor comes calling. However, Pip is also notorious for showing up at your door at the most inconvenient of times. They make up for this habit by always bringing a thoughtful gift.

Quinn Vanillafur

     A small delicate white mouse with intense blue eyes.
     Quinn has lived in Brambleton her whole life on the edge of Brambleton. She's a kind hearted mouse with a strange aura. Recently many children of Brambleton have started to visit her in her Willow Tree and some have been seen sneaking away as if to hide that they had been there at all.

     Quinn Vanillafur's place is an odd looking Willow Tree nestled in the U bend of the Brambleton Brook, a place of calm that welcomes all. You find that it is a rather large space for such a small mouse but that is to accommodate her sometimes larger guests and... clients? Quinn's is the place many children find safe and comforting as she is always there for the young ones when they get hurt as a result of some trouble they shouldn't have gotten into. She cares for all with her mysterious mojo without question or judgement.

     Some understand her strange ways of healing while others may hesitate with fear unable to comprehend the unusual powers. Quinn's is home to many strange things that might sometimes seem impossible for such a small mouse to acquire. Are they ingredients? Catalysts? Who knows...

Ms. Roisin Alannah Corcoran

     Roisin's fur is a sleek reddish brown (she likes to refer to it as cinnamon).  Her green eyes sparkle with amusement. Just a tiny bit under average height, She is almost always seen wearing dresses she's made for herself and carrying a small basket filled with needles, thread, measuring tape, and other small sewing tools. If she is wearing pants, adventure time is afoot!
     Roisin grew up in Brambleton, though she has traveled to other areas of Mosswood. She is the middle child of 5 Mice, and her parents were very caring of the family.  Her mother is still alive, as are her 4 siblings.  Her father unfortunately died of a mysterious sickness when she was 25.  She loves to investigate new happenings, and also make sure that her friends have the best clothing to help them achieve their social or other needs.

Wolf - He/Him

October 13 (48)

Mr. Ronan Moonwild

     A tall, stoic wolf with black and grey fur, Ronan always looks out of place in the quaint settlements of Mosswood. His clothing rarely matches nor fits quite right, he never seems to know which cups to use or where to sit at garden parties, and he somehow always manages to bump the doorway on the way inside. Old scars mark his snout, left ear, and hands, though he seems less self-conscious about them than he is about how to make small talk with new neighbors.

     Based on the grey hairs collecting on his muzzle and his grimace when his joints creak, Ronan is no sprightly pup, but his broad, athletic frame hints at a dynamic life.
     Ronan is a newcomer to Mosswood, freshly unpacked and just starting to meet his neighbors. To all accounts, much of his life up until now had been spent traveling with a band of adventurers called The Nightfangs--a rough-and-tumble group that is nonetheless known for its good-natured members.

     While he still has plenty of settling in to do, Ronan has already found himself offering to help with instructing local youngsters, especially in regards to survival skills and learning more about their natural surroundings. Otherwise, he can often be found curled up by his fireplace with a book, trying his latest recipe, or out on a slow walk around the woods.

Miss Saffron Greenshore

     Saffron Greenshore is a light sand colored wolf with white neck fur and paws. She dresses in primarily light colors and has a particular love for light pink dresses.
     Saffron, also called Saffie by her friends or Miss Saffie by her youngest students, is a cheerful, affectionate, and above all loyal, wolf. She loves to learn about everything she can, and she is happy to share what she’s learned with anybody who’s willing to listen. Her home is always open for anybody who wants to stop over and talk about anything, she is quick to welcome any new neighbors that arrive, she loves to make new friends.

     Saffron has lived in Mosswood her entire life. When she was growing up she found that she loved playing with and helping to care for the younger children. She carried that with her for her entire life and became a teacher in the hopes of sharing her love of learning with her students. Saffron cares deeply for her students and sometimes struggles a bit with disciplining them when they break rules. As such her classroom can sometimes be a bit chaotic, but she has mastered the art of switching topics when she senses the students starting to get bored and coming up with activities to get them interested in her lesson again.

Sennex Marjolein

     Sennex is a petite opossum, only weighing a few pounds, but she is understandably proud of her exceptionally long tail and whiskers. Her fur is naturally a soft grey and white, but her pink fingers and speckles all over are usually stained with dye she uses to dye fabrics and yarn to craft with. She likes to wear skirts and overalls, all of them patched numerous times with fabric and decorative stitches. She wears a band of silver around the base of her tail, like a bracelet. She has a notch in her left ear from scrapping with a bully.
     Sennex is quiet when you first meet her, but if you chat with her a bit you’ll find behind those shy eyes is a loud, rough and tumble tomboy who will never turn down a chance to test her skill in a friendly rasslin’ match!

     She spends a lot of time hunting down various plants to be used as dyes, as well as sewing new clothes or crocheting fun accessories (although she sometimes likes to do it while hanging upside down from a tree branch).

     Her favorite foods are fruity sweets like pies and tarts, and her friendship can easily be bought with her absolute favorite food: strawberry parfaits with lots of whipped cream!

     She was born a ways off, in the deepest forest, where she grew up with her 12 brothers and sisters. When she got older, she decided to set out on her own, and gain some worldly experience making friends and seeing new places, which brought her to her new home in Pebblebrook! She found a lovely cave made from tree roots under an oak tree and hung up the gifts her siblings had given her as going away presents; one dozen glass balls, each with a pretty stone or flower suspended inside it, from the roots and sewed herself a nice cozy mattress.

     Her family was tight knit, and they all considered standing up for each other and protecting each other to be very important. So she will quickly jump to her friends’ aid if they’re being bullied or teased too harshly.

Theodosia Thistlebottom

     Theodosia has light tawny brown fur. She has a habit of dressing rather plainly. Her clothes are clearly hand-me-downs from one of her many littermates. While her clothing choices are simple, her hats are anything but. Theodosia has a passion for hats and is rarely seen without one. Since she is not a Hare of great means, she has become adept at crafting eye-catching hats out of acorns, leaves, mushrooms, flowers and almost anything else that she can gather from the forest.
     Theodosia Thistlebottom is a young hare who is new to Mosswood. She moved from a rural farming warren with hopes of making something of herself. She is ambitious and dreams of opening her own shop. She hasn't decided between a haberdashery or toy shop, as she is equally fond of hats and young critters.

     While her surname is prickly, Theodosia is not. Though initially shy when meeting new creatures, Theodosia can warm up very quickly especially around children of all species. She will also quickly forget herself when asked about hats or hat-making.

     Hares generally have large families and Theodosia was often responsible for the care of her younger siblings, cousins, and neighbors. She loved to create toys to entertain the critters in her charge. She often carries small tops, simple dolls and other small items to gift to the young critters she encounters.

     Theodosia is very community minded and always seeks to better her neighborhood. If a neighbor's need is brought to her attention, she does her best to help. She is often found volunteering to watch young critters, tend to the sick and contribute to fixing and improving community property.

     Theodosia likes to keep busy but is known to stop to enjoy a good cup of tea or a good bit of gossip. She is very fond of music and is often found humming to herself as she goes about town.

Cardinal - He/Him
927 Red Maple Lane
Brambleton
June 10 (37)

Mr. Vaughn Vermillion

     Vermillion is an middle aged cardinal complete with greying side feathers that he is not too keen on. Of late he is trying to hide these grey streaks so that he doesn't look older than he feels. His Black beak is always polished, and although he doesn't use them outside his nest, he can occasionally be seen putting on small wire spectacles so he can read fine print. He is notably always dressed with a different bowtie, and sometimes even changes it during a part or event to help keep critters second guessing if it is indeed a slight of hand, or something more magical (but it is not, he simply hides, and changes his bowtie).
     Vermillion has taken a keen interest in water coloring and includes a small piece in on his letters. He hopes people enjoy them (and secretly hopes someone starts to collect them in order to get them all, perhaps a prize or something in the future, but who knows!). He enjoys reading but otherwise he's a relatively quiet feathered critter not getting involved often. His interests though do include far distant places, and especially this concept there could be a place where one could look forever and not see the end of the earth! (He's talking about the ocean...it's so exciting to think and theorize about what might happen when someone got to the end of the world!)

Otter - She/Her
Willowbark Cottage
#4 Pebblebrook Path
Pebblebrook
June 8 (54)

Goody Verbena Ottersly

     Verbena Ottersly has warm brown eyes and a gentle smile. She exudes calm and competence. Her children and patients rely on her as a hand to hold, so she keeps her nails trimmed exceptionally short for an otter. Verbena is usually seen wearing a large willow wand basket backpack carefully packed with the tools of her midwifery trade, as well as munchies to share with younglings who may need distracting while she talks to their mothers. Other than the basket she usually goes naked except for her sleek brown fur, just starting to grey at the ears and other tips. She now wears glasses, especially for reading and close up work like stitching.
     Goodwife Verbena Ottersly, (Goody Verbena to her many patients and friends,) is a lifelong resident of Pebblebrook. She felt called to midwifery at a young age and learned the practice by apprenticing to the midwife in Brambleton as a young Otter then expanded her practice to Pebblebrook. When her mentor retired, Verbena picked up her patients all over Mosswood. Goody Verbena has an excellent reputation for the quality of her care, and her extensive knowledge is helped along by a bit of Mojo she can work that ensures every pup, kit, and fledgling under her care arrives just on time and perfectly healthy.

     Verbena's husband, Mac, is a relaxed fisher Otter. He can be found reeling in his catch from the shore and selling extra fish and crayfish to the various townsfolk who partake. He has always been willing to be an equal partner to Verbena in the raising of their younglings over the years, especially when Verbena is called away to tend to a mother or infant in need. They have even taken in various orphaned young over the years and treated them as their own. Most of the young Ottersly pups are grown and moved out and some grandpups have even begun to arrive on the scene. However, there are still several in their tween and teen years living at the cottage.

     The Ottersly family has a large willow growing behind their cottage, which has become overshadowed by it's long trailing branches over the years. In a nest in the branches of that tree lives Verbena's best friend, a titmouse named Miss Windy Leaf. She is a quick messenger who flies about the forest checking on all the expecting young families and lets Verbena know when her presence is needed to assist with a birth or to bring aid to tend to a mother dealing with a colicky infant.

     When not with a patient, Goodwife Verbena may be found walking along the river with her dear Goodman Mac, working in her garden of medicinal herbs or sitting in her rocking chair reading a book or humming to a pup she's caring for while their tired mother gets a quick nap.

June 18 (26)

Ms. Whimsy Trufflesnoot

     Whimsy is a petite pig, but don't let that fool you. Working in the sweets shop all day has given her more strength than you might expect for such a wee thing!

     She's a tawny golden color with a white stripe that runs from her snoot to just past her ears, and dark brown spots pepper her sides and flanks (not that anyone sees those, mind you, she's a proper lady). She enjoys wearing petticoats and pinafores- the more frills, the better- most especially if they have patterns and prints of a celestial nature as Whimsy is very in tune with divination.

     However, her frocks often also sport a tea stain or brush of flour from her regular activities at the shop. She has chocolate brown eyes, typical thick piggie eyelashes, and a pink snoot. And she's just so happy to see you, and so is the Beyond!
     Whimsy is optimistic, loves making (and eating) sweets, sees signs and portents everywhere, regularly does divination via tasseomancy and tarot cards, and is generally eclectic. She's essentially a cross between Julia Child and Professor Trelawney.

     She may come across as flighty, daydreamy, or far too silly for some, but she's a loyal friend and fearless in trying new things and visiting new places.

      She's lived in Brambleton her whole life and makes a point of knowing everyone (and tell them what the Beyond has spoken to her of, regarding their futures, of course) because she believes in intuition and connection. Although it may be plain to see that she doesn't have any particular skill in divination, Whimsy nonetheless believes wholeheartedly in the practice of reading cards and tea leaves.

     She owns and is often found working at Whimsy's Whiffles, in downtown Brambleton, where she makes and sells sweets, such as honeycomb toffee, mint merengues, tea lollies, and more (including her specialty, truffle truffles)! Although she's unaware of it, when Whimsy makes candies with honey gathered around the Shademoor forest, those candies impart to the eater the mood she was in when she made them. As Whimsy doesn't understand bees and is afraid of getting stung, she relies entirely on other Critters for her honey supply.

Hedgehog - He/Him
Burrow by the Red Wall
Brambleton
February 29 (52)

Lt. Winn of De Hedge

     While the distinguished salt and pepper complexion has turned mostly white over time, the eyes bely an intelligence and a promise of adventure that most find curious, if not alarming.
     Winn has returned from the Battle of Blueberry Bend, settling into a life of quiet by an old series of red stones near the outer edge of town. Raised as the fifth child of six, he was loved by being sent into the world at a young age to find his own way. He has an odd preference for a Hedgehog of liking fruits over grubs, but otherwise is quite the traditional sort. During the battle itself he gained a resentment toward the Sun and light, and actively avoids those who prefer the Sun to the Moonlit night. He believes that sleep is to be cherished, stealth is key, and to always be helpful and seeking out new opportunities.

     Although trying to settle down, Winn seeks to go out and assist others. He is usually focusing on obtaining items in the forest few can, or on protecting those in need during their own quest. He is here to help as long as the Moon shall rise.
