The Redford clan was a prominent family withing the first pack to settle Dawnbreak - before town was founded and the mines first opened. They are a tight knit family who generally hold kin above all else, though after the division of the original group they led their faction on to become what is now known as Savage River. A number of Alphas and Beta's have hailed from the Redford Clan since.
Originally a Scott-English family of werewolves, the Redfords originally immigrated to North America in the 17th century to escape persecution (both for pagan traditions and due to witch hunts) and have since become the standard American amalgamation of cultures.
Though generally a fairly patriarchal group, the family is presently headed up primarily by their matriarch Clarissa "Granny" Redford and, to a somewhat lesser extent, the patriarch Robert Redford.
Old money still lingers in the family, but present day professions are spread all over the spectrum between white and blue collar, with the latter being arguably more common. The Redford men were some of the original law-men in Dawnbreak during its foundations, and have since maintained a long history of careers in law enforcement. To this day they maintain a significant presence as troopers in Dawnbreak, and the family is largely responsible for maintaining Savage River's monopoly over the local department.

Danielle Cleary [Adoptable]
- Red has several siblings, both male and female, possible ages ranging from 34-53
- Children from Red's siblings are likewise up for adoption. Extant such characters, for example, are Andrew, Cody, and Dixon
Compared to most of the men in the family he took his name from, Dixon is not a tall man standing at only five ten. His build is somewhat narrow, though he is athletic and well-toned. His face is narrow and somewhat gaunt, with well defined features – a sculpted chin, nose and brow – with steeply arched eyebrows - though his jawline is somewhat weak in comparison. Dixon’s hair is a sandy brown-blonde in shade and his eyes are a piercing gray-blue. He tends to cut something of a rough appearance, rarely being clean shaven and often looking a bit greasy.
Hair Color/Eye Color: Brown/Gray
Wolf Pelt/Eye Color:Gray/Gray
In general, Dixon maintains a serious, gruff demeanor. He often comes off as hostile to those unfamiliar with him, and tends to be extremely closed off outside of close company. In spite of this he has a wry sense of humor, often used to break tension. In close company he is much more relaxed, quick to smile and bullshit especially in the presence of his cousins and best friends, Seth and Matthew. Dixon is a crass individual. He’s unabashedly rough around the ends, and prone to making comments that in this day and age of political correctness could easily be construed as racist – though it is unclear whether or not he truly feels this way, or just simply lacks any kind of filter. Despite his lack of finesse, Dixon is capable of expressing affection and compassion – though its rarely seen outside his family circle. He is steadfastly loyal to his kin, and swift to resort to violence in their defense.
Positive Personality Traits: Thick Skinned, Family Oriented
Negative Personality Traits: Belligerent, Impulsive, Coarse Nature
Neutral Personality Traits: Witty
Dixon is a Redford by name rather than birth. His father was part of the dwindling Elliot clan. However, his mother was only fifteen when he was born. Because of this, he was named after and raised by his grandparents. Dixon grew up believing they were his mother and father, and that his biological mother was his sister. He had very little contact with his biological dad. To him the guy was just his sister’s dick boyfriend.
His “sister” moved out at 18 years of age, moving in with and marrying her boyfriend. Not long after they had another child, and for the first few years Dixon believed that his sister was a cousin. He was about sixteen when the truth came out.
Never much of an academically inclined individual, Dixon never bothered with college like his cousins. As a young teen, he’d developed a friendship with a local pilot who flew goods in and out of town – he learned to fly at thirteen years of age, and at 17 obtained his private license. Dixon ultimately took over the business when his friend was diagnosed with cancer and became too ill to operate alone; he eventually passed, and without any family of his own willed his aircraft to the young man. This is primarily how Dixon makes his living today, though he’s handy with tools and does freelance work around town in the months when flight isn’t really an option.
Relationships: Seth Redford - Cousin
Clarissa Redford - Great Grandmother
In contrast to his much slighter twin, Dane is tall and broad of build. He stands at almost 6’2” and poses a fit, muscular figure. A firefighter by profession, his arms and legs are thickly muscled and he is the picture of fitness – though his stomach tends to carry a thin layer that hides any definition from view. Dane’s features are easy on the eyes with a squarely shaped face and a defined jawline. Though well groomed, there is usually a shadow of stubble or a thin beard covering his face. His eyes are hazel in coloration, framed by thick, shallowly arching brows. want want
Height/Weight - 6'1"/158
Hair Color/Eye Color - Brown/Blue
Unlike his twin, Dane’s wolf appearance doesn’t take after most of the Cleary family. Rather, he takes after his biological father, Red Redford. His coat is darkly colored, a rich amalgamation of browns and black. His undercoat is a medium shade of brown, low lighted by shades of chocolate. A dark brown saddle lays over his back and ribs, and his shoulders are similarly dark while his nape is highlighted by a brown-gold ruff of fur.
Wolf Pelt/Eye Color - Black & Brown / Blue
For the most part, and often in contrast to his more outgoing and bullheaded sister, Dane is a calm and down to earth individual. He likes to relax and enjoy himself, spending much of his free time either hanging around the house tinkering with various projects, or out roaming the bars and chasing women. However, Dane has a bullheaded streak of his own; he’s proudly defensive of his family, and often over protective of his sisters and female cousins – tormenting any man who shows interest in one of them is a favorite past time, despite the fact that he doesn’t exactly have a spotless track record in that respect.
Though he values hard work and never slacks off on the job, when it comes to cutting up Dane is a shameless screw off. He enjoys harassing and embarrassing his sister, and even at twenty five years of age isn’t above frequent pranks and other acts of mischief. However, this particular aspect of his personality has taken a sharp nosedive lately upon the revelation that his twin sister and himself do not, in fact, belong to the man they were raised to believe was their father.
Positive Personality Traits - Friendly, Hard Working
Negative Personality Traits - Antagonistic, Brooding
Neutral Personality Traits - Artistic
Dane grew up believing that he and his twin sister Danielle were the fifth and fourth children of the family, respectively. In reality his mother had a long time affair with pack alpha Red Redford, who secretly fathered several children through her including himself and his sister as well as their older brother Richard. Dane is the younger of the Cleary twins and fifth child in the family. With a total of three siblings following, he grew up in the midst of a large immediate family and an even larger extended one. Consequently, he spent most of his childhood on the go while roaming with siblings and cousins. He was heavily involved in athletics growing up.
Generally disinterested in academics, Dane excelled most in the various shop classes offered by the school as these gave him a better outlet for artistic tendencies. By the time graduation rolled around, he was skilled with carpentry, welding and mechanics. Cars were always a special interest of his, and refurbishing them became a fond hobby in his later teenage years.
When he wasn’t messing around in the garage or with one of his teams, Dane spent a fair amount of time volunteering with the fire station. Upon graduation, he, like his sister, completed a degree in fire sciences. At present he is employed with the Dawnbreak fire department, and pretty content not to do anything else with himself.
