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

x March 25: Welcome back! Canis has officially reopened; read more about the changes here. There is an active World Event you can find here. Have fun!
x March 25: Fate's Respite has vanished
x March 25: Frostfang Vale has vanished
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.

 Camouflaged as a part of the wildlife, tucked warmly underneath his elk pelt, Alexei sat near the partially frozen river. Some fragments of ice taking over stiller, sitting waters and the moving river, almost as frigid. The fisherman had set a small trap up, much like the one in the Run that he'd had, before they'd moved away from the mountains and left it all behind. 

 Rocks held up a small, restricted area; allowing water to pool over when rain fell — or snow melted, and lower when the current stretched too wide. Fish would get caught, usually of the medium or smaller size. Slowly, he would expand a few rocks in, and see how far that got him. But there was still that ringing fear in his ears whenever his ankles were too deep...

 Hearing a sharp noise in the distance, Alexei was pulled from the act of fishing, ready to strike when needed — trying to get this trip over quickly so he could be out of the water, and snuggle into the pelts in his den. Violet eyes surveyed the area around him, steadily, before they landed on a hulking white mass. All he could see was the backend of the man. 

 Something about him was off, on edge, and there was a nagging sense of obligation deep in his bones. "Excuse me," His voice paused for a moment, allowing himself a moment of reprieve from the river, stepping out of it, "Are you alright~? I mean, well. Obviously you don't seem alright.. But what I mean is — is there anything I can do?" Alexei extended his offer with a somber gaze. He knew how it felt to be low — maybe not angry and sad; but sad surely. "A-Are you hungry?" The male gestured back to the few fish he'd caught. Winters were tough, but good things came to those who did good.

 The beast swiveled his head, turning to find Alexei with his one good eye — and upon seeing his marred face, the fisherman grimaced. It was obviously healed — rather, some of his face on that side had been salvaged. 

 'No.' It was plain and simply put. And it didn't look like Alexei should press it any further. The last time he had even tried to chat with someone with obvious aggression on their shoulders — putting past that just because someone looked scary didn't mean they were. Well, he wasn't about to be proven wrong again"Alright." He said, leaving well enough alone. Though Alexei didn't make it a point to leave, just moving a few steps towards the water, where he'd previously been for his fishing exploits.
