Northwood Characters: Aislin Carwin & House Carwin

I’ll share a bit of info on the main characters (and some of the supporting characters) of “Northwood”.

One of the main characters in “Northwood” is Aislin Carwin. She’s the massive, hulking werewolf that shows up pretty frequently in my drawings.

Aislin is a werewolf and the main protagonist of the story. Since she is a Carwin, she is a pureblood, pedigree werewolf, which means she’s decently physically strong and fairly smart. She’s about 58  years old (but looks to be in her mid-twenties since my pureblood werewolves age slowly) in the current point of Northwood.

She resides in the mountains of northwestern North America, somewhere n the wilds of Wyoming. She’s a bit of a recluse since being banished - Aislin would argue that she left on her own - from her family. She had a major falling out with the Emilia, the Dame of House Carwin, and Aislin will adamantly defend that she did nothing wrong. Her family tends to disagree.

She’s a WoC, with dark skin, yellow eyes, and ice-white hair. Her hair color is in direct correlation with the color of her fur when she is a werewolf. In my mythos, my werewolves have have hair colors that match their fur colors.

House Carwin

As the name suggests, House Carwin is one of the three families of pureblood werewolves. The other two houses are House Volkov and House Layton. In the world of “Northwood”, all pureblood families originate from Fenrir, one of the Primordials of this world. It is a long, connected - and convoluted - history that I will gladly go into at a later time. Here’s the backstory and basic information for the Carwin family.

The Carwin family is very proud of their ancient roots. They keep in close contact with Hati and Skoll, and the Carwin family are the only House that derived from actual feral wolves of the Carpathian Mountains. Carwin’s were once wolves who would take the flesh of man and walk upright. It is written that the Head of the Carwin household, Emilia Harriet Carwin, killed the original Lady Carwin (who was a human) and stole her skin. Emilia then masqueraded as the human Lady, returning to the woman’s home in England. Every few months, Emilia would return to the Carpathian Mountains, teaching the transformation to the stronger wolves of her old pack. Until, eventually, the Carwin bloodline could be established. From that point on, the Carwin werewolves were able to breed with other bloodlines and strengthen the line. However, by taking a human form, they sacrificed the ability to retain their feral form. And over time, the shift from human to beast grew larger and more grotesque. Now they can only shift between a human and beast form.

The Carwin werewolves are very particular about their bloodline. The purity of their bloodline is passed down through the females. Not the males. And because they wish to increase their numbers, they will only have children with other “born” werewolves. They breed with other strong bloodlines in order to strengthen their future progeny. Because, no matter the other bloodline, the child will always be born a Carwin. If the child turns out to be “unfit” for survival, it will be culled. “Bitten” werewolves are seen as a stain on the society as a whole, and a Carwin should never seek a relationship with one. Be it romantic or otherwise. And should a Carwin come across a “bitten” werewolf, it is seen as their “social responsibility” to remove it from existence.

It is noted in the Carwin lineages that majority of the family werwolves have had thick, dark fur. They are decently muscular, but not overly so. However, due to the mixed bloodlines, certain traits can appear in particular generations, but not in others.  However, due to the large stature of Carwin werewolves, the bloodline lacks in speed while in their Beast form. Another notable trait about Carwin werewolves is that the females are significantly larger than the males. While the largest male Carwin was recorded to be 8’6”, the largest female Carwin reached a height of 10’9”.

Also, the family has always tried to be careful about their interaction with humans. Limiting human-werewolf interaction to nearly none at all. They do not approve of turning normal humans into werewolves. It is seen as a wasted effort. They believe that humans would squander the gift. If it is suspected that a family member has bitten a human - be it on purpose or by accident - they will hunt down and kill both the bitten human and the Carwin responsible. It is an unforgivable transgression. Although, there have been instances where a Carwin has turned a human to save the human’s life. However, these instances are rare, and both (Carwin and human) are usually tracked down and killed by the rest of the family. No exceptions.

tldr; Aislin is a Carwin werewolf, and House Carwin are a bunch of assholes.

Werewolves! We should totally talk werewolves one day. : )

no problem! though I think you pretty much have a head start on mine. I think you faved my info sheet on dA. thanks for that btw XD

Oh yes! The very elaborate and in-depth one! I thought that was totally awesome. I love how well organized and explained it was. You put a lot of work into it. <3

But I’m super excited to see what you do with your werewolves. I bet they’re going to be awesome. 

Haha, thanks. It took me a long while to finish but there’s still a lot of stuff I’m going to be changing once I get back to it.

But on your end, I don’t think I’ve seen any of your general info (unless I’ve just completely missed it). I’d love to see your side of things

That’s great. I can’t wait to see! : D

I haven’t posted a lot of my write-ups and scripting for “Northwood” because I’m not quite sure how much I want to share. I have the synopsis all finished, the antagonists and protagonists picked out, and a few of the main locations. But it’s sharing the real meat of the story that I’m hesitant about. Though maybe a backstory is something that might be interesting to post; I’ve been debating whether I should share it or not.
