Name: Peony

Gender: Doe

Age: 18 months

Personality: Sweet-natured, gentle, and to an extent quite gullible, Peony is quite easy to manipulate
 But what she lacks in intuition, she makes up for in her loyalty to her friends. When it comes to her views and feelings, she lacks the confidence to stand by her own decisions and personal beliefs. She is whimsical and enjoys stories and poetry, and adventure.

Appearance: Small, with brown fur and intelligent, sparkling eyes, Peony's most distinguishing feature is a tuft of fluffy fur atop her head. Up to now having led a very easy life, her fur is sleek, and she remains free of scars.

Backstory: Peony grew up quite happily in her warren, with some friends, with whom she explored the meadows and hedgerows as far as she was allowed. But recently, she has found herself growing restless, and irritablr with the increasingly hypocritical Owsla of their warren. More than anything, she is growing to desire a new life somewhere else.

Strrengths: Loyalty; intelligence and creativity; a gift for story-telling; good at calming others; quite a fast runner.

Weaknesses: Gullible; not very confident; quite easily swayed; not very strong.
But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come! And when the sun shines it'll shine out the clearer!

Name: Elderberry
Age: Not a yearling yet
Appearance: He has dark brown fur with characteristically black tipped ears and a beige belly. He is tall of frame and slender, but not a fighter. Indeed, fighting often turns him tharn. I may have said in a different description that he has hazel eyes, but I'm changing it to that he has green eyes.
History: He was born in a warren far from watership down and was treated with suspicion due to his seer powers and liability to fall into a trance any time of the day or night. He has always believed in the tales of El- ahrairah and Rabscuttle, quoting that rabbits must always need trickery and cunning.
He left the warren due to being upset about his treatment and besides that, he had a vision that told him to leave the place and to find the high, lonely hills and a certain honeycomb. Out of the warren, he learnt that the outside world was cruel and full of elil. He had many rough times around them and at times barely escaped with his life. As each day passed, he became more depressed... losing the will to live... almost.
He reached the warren of the shining wires but soon left due to the feelings of darkness and a certain, lurking danger round every bush and tree nearby. He said that the rabbits of the warren of the shining wire had "started to make shapes about cunning and trickery for they had lost the gifts that El- ahrairah gave them. Danger lurks around every paw that they place down yet the wires are a cost that they are willing to pay for safety and enough flay-rah... Oh frith forbid... I fear that they have given themselves up to man!" He left after saying that, and no one dared to follow him as they claimed that he was tharn as the mist and snow.
Then he reached watership down at which he now resides.
Personality: He is shy and solitary for a rabbit: he prefers to be alone and daydream or make up poems about nature. He also has a lack of confidence and self esteem as many rabbits told him that he was a curse with his seer powers as all he said came true, and most of it was bad. He tends to stare up at the sky and mutter wonderingly "How do the clouds stay up if we fall down?" Normally he is solemn but can be fun around his friends... but he has few as he finds it hard to make friends, due to him being shy and timid or just plain mysterious. But he has a kind heart and always longs and is willing to help those who need it.
Powers: He is a seer, with powers to see the future and to sense if danger approaches. He often feels miserable with his gift as he has been told that it is more of a curse because all that he predicted comes true. Another, more obscure gift he has is that he can, at times, tell what someone is feeling though this is rare. He is more liable to just falling into a trance and predicting the future than reading someones feeling.
Well, thats about it.

Lapine Name: Nildro-roo

English Meaning: Little Blackbird

Age: 1 year and 2 months

Gender: Doe

Appearance: Greyish-brown with white spots around her eyes; small and rather commonplace compared to other rabbits her age



Personality: Quiet and intelligent, Little Nildro dreams of leading other rabbits, but she lacks the experience and support of the warrens she has visited. She is introverted, and she prefers to stay within a small group as opposed to striving to make friends with everybody. She is a quick thinker and she enjoys composing small poems in her head on a whim.

Strengths and Weaknesses: Nildro-roo takes pride in her brains and creativity, but she can be contemptible when provoked and she usually avoids other rabbits.

Backstory: Born in the Warren of the Shining Wire, Nildro-roo (nicknamed "Birdie") was traumatized when her brother was killed in a snare. She left her warren in search of a safer place, and she has met many interesting characters. On one occasion, she accidentallly ran into Campion and narrowly escaped by luring some of his rabbits onto the iron road where a long hrududu almost killed them. Never feeling quite at home in other warrens, she is still a hlessi.

Name: Nettle.

Age: around one year.

Gender: Doe.

Appearance: Mostly black fur, with a bit of brown here and there.  Slightly smaller than the average rabbit of her age.

Personality: She has a taste for excitement and adventure, which is why she chose to become a hlessi.  She is used to spending extended periods of time alone, but she sometimes gets lonely.

Backstory: She spent the first nine months of her life at the warren where she was born.  Then, she decided that warren life was too boring, and decided to become a hlessi to lead a more exciting life.

Strengths: Despite being small, she is a rather good fighter.

Weaknesses: In her quest for adventure, she can sometimes behave impulsively and recklessly.

Name: Nightshade
Gender: Buck/Male
Species: Belgian hare
Domesticated or wild: Wild
Appearance: Though actually a breed of domesticated rabbit, Nightshade more resembles a hare due to the inbreeding of his species, which are meant to more resemble hares. Nightshade is just a little larger than a common wild rabbit, but he appears as a runt due to his physical inferiority. Unlike the majority of rabbits, Nightshade isn’t bulky; like a hare, his frame is long, agile and slender, with a curved spine and a big tail for balance. His head is narrow, long, and flat, and his ears are large, pointed, and erect. He has large eyes, with a grassy green iris. His whiskers are short. His fur is short, and sleek, and black, whilst he had a characteristic ring of grey fur lining round his eyes, and the inner part of his tail is the same grey hue. His inner ears are a delicate pink shade
Personality: Nightshade is a typically reserved and withdrawn individual, who generally prefers solitude over crowds and social gatherings. He’s also lacking in confidence and is self conscious, due to the majority being suspicious and fearful of his black pelt: he’s been called The Black Rabbit Of Inle many times, and has been shunned due to it. However, he expertly masks this lack of confidence with indifference, and a calm facade. Underneath the facade is a neurotic Belgian hare who’s prone to pessimism and anxiety. He’s full of nervous ticks and twitches, though he usually strives to suppress them. Nightshade is intelligent and intuitive, logical in his thinking, creative and observant. He’s a problem solver, however stressed he may be during dramatic and problematic situations
Backstory: He was a domesticated rabbit, living within a hutch, until he received a dream in which he was running up a vast hill, with El’ahrarah at his side. During the dream, Nightshade felt free, elated and truly joyous. For days after, he longed to escape and be free. For some time, he pondered on how to break the hutch, then realised that the straps holding the door were made from leather. One night, he chewed laboriously through the straps, broke them, and managed to escape. However, during the process, he alerted the farmyard dog, which chased after him. The dog was mercifully small, more of a lap dog, and Nightshade, in a fit of terror, managed to kick the dog in the muzzle with his hind feet. The dog, pained, yelped and fled, leaving Nightshade alone in the farmyard. Now Nightshade is a hlessil, wandering, striving to find the hill he dreamt of

Nightshade also has seer abilities. He can glimpse the future through usually terrifying visions, and he’s able to delve into another’s heart just by touch and will, and thus discover their secrets.

well here goes nothing.

name:roo-efath
name meaning: little plant (don't ask, I don't know.)
'nickname:' Roo/Little
 
''rank:'' storyteller probably
gender: buck
sexuality: questioning, currently heterosexual
age:4 years? (not to good with rabbit aging thing)
warren:depends, any.

~~
appearance: from further view, he is seen as a brute due to his unusual size. he is quite tall and broad with long nicked ears. he has a light hazel pelt with darker paws and tips of ears. roo's eyes are a basic green with hints of brown, on his nose is a unnoticeable scar what can only be seen if you're observant enough? (Don't write descriptions a lot :yona )

disabilities: none so far.
diseases: none.

~~~

personality overview: roo is a sweet tom at heart, though at first sight he seems to be off, especially for a story-teller. he tends to be alone, admiring the peace. he's the line between an extrovert and an introvert depending on his mood already. if he's angered or sad, he becomes reserved and withdrawn. but if frith has blessed him with a good mood then he is very extroverted and will spend the day interacting and helping out the warren any way he can. roo is also an exceptional story-teller using his words to bind a story, he could use this to manipulate others but would he? probably not.  when you get closer to him and he considers you a close friend he opens up a lot more, often discussing what he thinks of the other warrens and so on.

~~
mother: hombeerhain (if you know you know)
father: hazelthlay
siblings: lily (as the flower)
~~
likes; telling stories, enthusiasm, flayrah (carrots in peculiar.), lavender
dislikes; rabbits who do not believe in themselves, depressing subjects, stinging nettles.
~~
backstory;
roo has always been a rabbit who prides in his warren, it's how he learnt all his stories. he was born and raised in the warren and would never think of leaving it. he grew up with a dad whomst was also a story-teller and a strict but somewhat soft-hearted mother. nothing tragic happened as he grew up, yeah some events here and there but the most disastrous one was when an opposite warren attacked but thankfully, a brave rabbit managed to defeat the chief of the opposite warren. (if you know, you know.)  he made an epic story about it and tells it to this day.
~~
not to good with backstories so aha..
~~

strengths and weaknesses; roo prides his mental stability and ability to get past events and hopefully provide comfort to those who are affected. he however, dislikes his inability to cape with being provoked, he gets annoyed easily.


~~
NOTE: I have not made a character for near enough a year, I had a massive hiatus on roleplaying so hence the not so good character bio.
