The Details

Current Name: Tom Collins - Redcap Ruckus
Born: Cleveland, Ohio
Current Location: Phoenix, Arizona
Tribe: Fianna
Auspice: Ragabash
Rank: Fostern
Position: Eldest Ragabash, Fool
Occupation: Trouble Finder
Description: Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, Tom is generally full (overfull) of energy. He wears comfortable and non-specific clothing for the most part, with the exception of some form of red headwear.

Notable Features:

  • Pure Breed x2
  • Sign of the Wolf
  • Mark of the Predator


  • Annie Martinez - My mate. Sharp and coordinated. Definitely a woman who knows what she is doing. Definitely could fall for a girl like her. Who knows if I haven't already? Fall, fallen, fell - who am I kidding? She's got me.
  • Ashlee Conway - Cousin! Always a good time in finding family. Ashlee's no exception. I got to see her during her fostering and share a bit of advice on the New Moon life. I look forward to hearing tales of her cleverness and Dukes of Hazard driving stunts!
  • Tia Forakis - Cousin. Not sure entirely of how to take this. She is a Black Fury Philodox... this is a cruel prank on me, karma smacking me around for all my chauvinistic jokes...

Blood and Tears

The Pack of Blood and Tears was formed when two old friends were reunited. With a warlike bent, Tom suggested that they consider all options - including Fenris. When the Great Wolf accepted their pack, it was a done deal. All in, as they say. Strength of Wisdom and Lexi Volkov were brought in almost immediately, the four having quite the throw-down to determine the pecking order.

Totem: Fenris
Ban: You must never pass up a worthy fight.


Pack Members:


  • Declan Brennan - I met Declan on my travels, when I was running about the country trying to get my name out there. Older, definitely older. Got a lot of good advice, assuming you don't tone him out. Listening, really listening, is always the hardest part of learning. I hope I do his advice justice, you know?
  • Half-Stalking Deer - I met her as Yes Deer... funny that. Very maternal, definitely a treat to see a Lupus born like her. She's got plenty of stories to tell, too.
  • She-is-Fiercer - I've had the fortune to be able to learn from Fiercer about spirits, fetishes and even how to treat my mate. I trust her to steer me away from too much trouble. I mean, trouble will always be about for a New Moon, she just keeps this fool from taking the step too far.

Tales told of the Ruckus

RP Ties

  • Passion: My other character was about unfulfilled love, loss and life after that. Tom is all about seizing the day and taking everything he can from life. Does your character see the same joy in life, despite the war? Does your character think Tom is a fool for thinking such?
  • Hope: There is always a chance. Always. Nothing is set in stone, while there is breath to be spent on changing it. Tom is never one to give up. Does your character find a similar perspective?
  • Fianna: Bards, Warriors and Mystics. Tom considers himself a Warrior and is a member of The Grandchildren of Fionn.
  • Trouble: He's a cocky New Moon. He often gets himself in trouble and takes others along for the ride. Were you in the mess with him or bailing him out?
  • Craftsman: He's a master metalworker with a knack for creating vessels that are easier to house spirits in.


  • "According to the definition of star-crossed lovers is: Two people who care immensely for each other but due to their circumstances cannot be together. In Romeo and Juliet it says 'From forth the fatal loins of these two foes A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life, Whose misadventured piteous overthrows, Doth with their death bury their parents’ strife. . . ..' Either sucks" - Annie Martinez
  • " makes babies" - Annie Martinez
  • "Passionate, determined, obnoxious little cousin who I wouldn't trade for the world." - Tia
  • "Tom plays a special role in our society. He is not afraid to point out one's errors or missteps. For this I am both thankful and a bit nervous to have him in my sept... anyone willing to call scandal on himself clearly shows that no one is above it." - Shows No Mercy
