Welcome to Canis Major

a wolf and animal rpg (role-playing game)

Canis is a writing community for play-by-post (forum-based), freeform roleplay set in a fictional dream world in the intrusion fantasy genre. Most characters on Canis are wolves; many play elements are focused around wolves and canids, but the world makes room for a large variety of other animal characters such as dogs, horses, cats, bears, deer, and many, many more.

Our community is focused on flexibility, creativity, and collaboration. That boils down to a few important features:

  • There is no set activity requirement to write
  • The setting and plot are member-created and staff-supported
  • The game is continuously improved to increase fun and decrease stress

back dated a bit to a month or so before Malolo's current posts


He allowed the waves to brush up to his legs, washing over his feet and filling his fur with salt. The sea-wolf's crisp orange eyes looked out onto the sea, analyzing it best he could from the shore. This place was likely not the best for swimming, sure, with all it's rocks and hidden things but, fish would often hide in places such as those.

The wolf's belly gurgled. He was hungry, and though the sky above turned with angry gray clouds, Malolo was ready for such a risk. An experienced swimmer such as himself felt as though he should encounter no issue. Simply run in, snatch a fish, and come ashore. All should be fine.

So as he said, he did. Splashing into the waves- paddling strongly with ready strides to overcome to power of the water. When he was out far enough, he would dive into the depths near the rocks. The salty water would sting for only a moment but, the pain would quickly subside. 

His eyes would analyze best they could, trying to make sense of blurry images and shapes that went past. After a moment, he would come back up. Taking a deep breath of air while he looked down into the water. When the wolf spotted a small group of fish, all decent and edible sizes, he dove back down once more.

He paddled after them and as he narrowed in close enough to bite at their tails, the man gave no awareness to the rest of the water nor the beasts within it's depths.

Something was disturbing the water. She could sense it. Feeling the strikes of the water like a struggling seal or fish that rung the shark's dinner bell. The smell was strange however, something she had smelled before but couldn't quite remember what that was. Or if it was tasty. Maybe it was nice and fatty like a seal. Oh how seals were tasty. Either way she wanted to see what was going on.

With a smooth motion she swam closer. Cutting through the water like a hot knife through butter on a warm day. From her limited sight she could see something diving down and chasing the fish - certainly an odd smelling seal and so she circled it. Trying to gauge the strange creature and find a weak spot. Not wanting to risk her own health and safety should this be more of a challenge than its worth - because how nutritious can a strange smelling seal be? Could it be sick maybe?

She circled again. This time a little closer, nudging it with her fin to get a feel. To get it to move and react. The growling could be heard, felt more like it. What a strange creature.

Could it fight the eddies formed by her swimming maybe? Seals normally could.
