Sometime during the 1500s, Finland found Floweregg who had been abandoned in the streets, and brought her home. Since at this time Finland belonged to Sweden, that meant Sweden's house, and after obtaining permission to keep her a name was decided - by way of Finland suggesting and Sweden doing damage control.
She spent the next centuries with Sweden and Finland and was the only contact between the two nations for a while after they separated, though she came to stay solely with Sweden when Finland's relations with his new master Russia worsened. There were repeated attempts to rekindle the shared custody, but those only became more than occasional stays after Finland broke away from Russia. Life wasn't peaceful for the eastern nation even after that, though, and it took until the 50ies before
the dog got to take scheduled turns in living with both of them again... And when Finland and Sweden started to spend more and more time at each other's houses again, so did their dog. Reincarnated History:
The owner of Floweregg's mother was a dog owner who cared about and loved her dog dearly; but when she got evicted from her house, she couldn't find a shelter that accepted people with animals, so she had to at least temporarely part with her dog. The pet shelter was a good place, no-kill and well run, and it is there that the dog mother gave birth to four little pups. In accordance with the wishes of her mother's owner (who volunteered at the shelter and thus could still see her dog), the puppies were given up for adoption as soon as they were old enough, and the then nameless puppy was adopted by one Siiri Pulkkinen, who had been encouraged to get herself a pet by her
friend Åsa Oxenstierna.First Echo:
Åsa was the one to pick her up first at the shelter, though only to hand her over to Siiri. Living with the nations Sweden and Finland, which was the cause for her sentience the first time around, started the same way, with Finland picking her up and carrying her around until he handed her to Sweden. So when the shorter female handed her over to the taller this time around, she suddenly had a lot of concepts, ideas and thoughts in her head that had definitely not been there just moments ago... Plus an odd string of what she could now identify as numbers. For the moment those were pushed away though, because the new people were far more exciting.Preincarnation Personality:
Floweregg is, first of all, a very well-trained dog
. That still shows chiefly in her instinct control - even when everything in her screams to do a certain thing, she will listen to her owners if they tell her to not do it, or do something conflicting with her instincts. She will make her opinions and voice heard, but she won't actively go against her masters' words or even keep arguing their judgment after a certain point. In relation to other humanoids this mainly means that she will never physically attack someone, even in the rare occasions when her temperament would be triggered - not even if her masters do it (this was something that had to be established at some point due to Sweden and Denmark, well, being themselves). It also shows in her having relatively good dog behavior, like not getting on kitchen surfaces but if you are going to leave sausages somewhere else... Yeah.
She can however show rather passive-aggressive behavior, mostly when it pertains to things that others have or get but she doesn't. Those moments are actually fairly easy to decode, if one was inclined to do so - remarks and acts
of passive aggression from her end are typically prefaced with her being not a nation or human. She'll for example bring up that she "of course never gets a birthday celebration because she's a dog" when what she wants to have such a celebration (her bad luck is that her owners just don't catch on). She'll also comment to others about things that she dislikes about her owners when it is a constant and grave annoyance, even within earshot of her owners (like for example when it comes to the topic of Finland's cooking and him trying to feed it to her). This isn't so much because she never mentions it to them, but because as a pet who doesn't talk verbally she only has so many options to announce her displeasure, and her nations may just not be getting her hints.
In her household she seems to be the most realistic and well-adjusted one, often acting like the one sane (wo)man
(just that she is a dog. See above. So the role falls to Iceland when the Nordics are in a larger group, and when there are only the direct family members such a character just doesn't exist). She also has very keen instincts when it comes to telling that something is off or a danger is approaching, which can lead to rather Cassandric calls. All of this results in her having rather exasperated moments sometimes when dealing with her nations, or other people at that. Due to her being a rather patient character, she'll usually just wait their antics out, unless they get dangerous for the other person (and even then she might have no choice but hope because of her being a pet). While she is not a coward, she, as mentioned, won't attack even an attacker unless specifically told to do so by her owners, and that leads to her rather staying close to others in case of an attack and trying to make the consequences easier on them, than actually do something about them.
She's described as usually behaving in a very friendly/cheerful/calm manner, being sociable/friendly and having a pretty cheerful/happy/bright personality, and when she is nonverbal that seem to be her chief characteristics. This is mostly because most of her other characteristics don't show until she says something, but it's also truly a large part of her personality, along with her genuinely caring about others, her own nations and strangers alike, and hoping for their best (unless you're Russia, probably). She'll help actively with that when she can, be it through advice or actions
. She also really likes being in the middle of the action, and will go with her nations on as many (interesting) activities as she can. She'll also usually be there when family times are to be had, because she loves those too. Often, she can be found riding on either Sweden's or Finland's shoulders.Any differences:
Floweregg has not yet lived for four hundred years, and that makes a world of a difference. Let me count the ways.
She's very truly a puppy still, which makes her a lot more excitable, inexperienced and prone to be a "bad dog". It also means that her instincts for dangerous situations are a lot less refined and her ability to read humans and react accordingly just isn't as strong yet. She'll also be more likely to go physically after someone who attacks her or her humans/nations.
Unlike her preincarnation, this Floweregg has never lived in an unhappy place. Sure, she was born in a shelter, but it was a good place where they were cared for and her mother was around. She's never lived in a house of tense hostility or through a war, has never starved or witnessed people starving, never lived through an air raid, never put a foot on a battlefield etc etc. Nobody has ever really been mean to her. She's never seen her nations/humans/anyone close to her suffer or suffered herself past puppy shots. Obviously her preincarnation didn't let that bring her down, but this Floweregg is more naively cheerful still and will thus be much more firmly impacted by negative experiences and have much less of a clue as to how to react to them.
Due to sentience not having developed gradually for her but having entered her brain at once, she'll have a harder time adjusting to it. Mostly, she'll have more trouble reconciling her dog side and her human sentience side, which will make the way in which she acts more one or the other and less a middle way.Abilities:
All of Flowereggs "abilities" rest upon her being close to her nations, so all of the points below come with a "as long as she's around her nations".
» Human-like sentience.
» Nation immortality. She can not die, cannot be killed, and doesn't age - basically she is indefinitely a puppy of a few months. This also means that she technically does not need food, drink or sleep to survive, though she'll still crave them.
» The ability to speak to other nation-pets in a human way and indeed communicate with all animals who are intelligent enough for to understand speech
» The ability to speak "human" and understand it. The ability to speak so far has only been granted to her for one night, but it is likely that she'll soon gain it for good.
» Included in the above are, language wise, at least: Swedish, Finnish, English, and through 4th-wall-breakage Japanese.
» She can read all the above languages, and she could learn to write them as well if presented with an option to physically do it.Roleplay Sample - Third Person: Test driveRoleplay Sample - Network:
Hello. [There is a fluffy white puppy - really puppy, she can't be older than a few months - peering at the network today.]
They brought my mistress into the hospital tonight. Her mate told me that they wouldn't let me into the hospital because I'm a dog [and that reasoning really annoys her; but Åsa didn't tell her to stay put and at home, not exactly, and she will exploit that loophole because she's really concerned here. Also she's been alone ever since Åsa left and it's boring to sit at home alone. Also herself being around has always helped Siiri up until now...]
, but I need to get there too because her mate said that she would bring her food. And her food is evil.
Can someone smuggle me into the hospital? I'll be very quiet and I'm not heavy or large, either. You can easily carry me!
