2/17/2013: What is your character’s spirit animal and family sigil and why?
Elspeth added family sigil to her prompt because she’s heavily into Game of Thrones. So am I, so I thought I would add it to mine, too. Selene’s parents were common folk and probably didn’t have a family sigil, so her sigil is very simple and obvious, really: it’s the Nightingales’ crest of a stylized nightingale with its wings in a circle around a full moon, all in black.
Before Selene became a werewolf, she might have said her spirit animal was the fox, but it’s the wolf, and it always has been. She’s a hunter, a fighter, and though she had trouble coming to terms with it, she’s a pack animal. She’s social, and she takes care of those in her family. And she’s protective. Woe be unto anybody who hurts her loved ones.
“though she had trouble coming to terms with it, she’s a pack animal”
I like knowing this about her and watching her grow throughout the story.
I love how she was able to choose her own sigil and the nightingale makes perfect sense. As does her spirit animal the way you have it described. =)
