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

Please complete this interest check survey by April 6! If players do not specify that they wish to continue managing their packs by this time, they will be disbanded. If you have any concerns or wish to discuss anything, please reach out to myself or another staff member.

"Ah, why are you so.. Gross to look at!?" Violet who was minding her own business was gathering the rest of her berries. How unfortunate they would be harder to find with the upcoming winter, as she already had difficulties! Already was her day partially ruined and with a pout, for her nails were only lightly bleached by the colors.. Just so pale she imagined a few more days they'd be completely gone. So she was on that desperate hunt to find more ; except..

She saw @Nikolai and he just looked wrong.

He knew there were plenty of pups to come across in these parts, having met two of Harper's brood when he first arrived here, long before he crossed paths with Tallulah, so when an identifiably young voice called out to him while he was moving through to start his patrol, he was ever so slightly taken aback. Granted, he reckoned the pups would be as quiet and kind as them.

This pale one was not.

"I don't reckon I know, I ain't ever asked my Momma," he said with a quirk of his lips, toothy as he looked to her. "Ya' like sayin' the first thing that comes to yer mind?"

"Yeah?" she snorted like it was obvious, "it's the truth. Why shy away from what is true?" So was her judgement when calling others out and being an absolute cunt to anyone who walks her path. She was just telling the truth as it is, and the truth was he was super ugly.. Like uglier then even Harper, so the child thought. She looked at him with skeptical eyes because he didn't seem really offended or caring, somewhat like Mordecai. She could stand with that uncle because he just let her get away with everything, and words didn't seem to affect him like the others. Wasn't fun — until he did stuff for her, then it was fun again.

Nikolai rumbled his amusement, something like thunder hitting the earth as he looked to the pale girl and nodded, smacking his jaws in the precursor to a yawn. "Sure," he would tell her then, finally shaking out his fur. "Respect the commitment—say, wanna make yerself truthful an' more than an ol' lump on a log?" If she agreed, he would whuff then, jaws cracking into that yawn finally, and would head back off on his patrol with her in tow.

Violet didn't get what he meant. Her head tilted to the side, "what do you mean?"
