Trevor and Jason's 'Thing Wot's Sort Of Like An Advent Calendar', #1

OK, well, no out-and-out complaints about the notion of doing a Character Background Meme while I'm waiting for Muse to be more explicit with the "um, they're here and then they go there" bits she's getting hung up on, so here goes; no guarantees that these will be strictly daily, or that Muse can necessarily get either of them to tell the truth (well, with Trevor that's almost a given, but I'd watch for him getting unusually evasive), but this ought to be an interesting exercise for the Future Archivists to sort through someday.

1.) Describe your character’s relationship with their mother or their father, or both. Was it good? Bad? Were they spoiled rotten, ignored? Do they still get along now, or no?

Jason gets on well with both his parents, although sometimes it's on different levels; his father doesn't always appreciate the wolf's perspective on life, while his mother wondered whether the tussling with his siblings was a dominance thing or just a boy issue. He's learned by now to take both of them as they come, although it's probably just as well that he's moved just far enough away to consider that he's establishing his own territory while still having them close enough to feel backed-up by a pack.

Trevor's mother died after a subsequent childbirth, when he was about three; Trevor's father moved in with a married brother, and Trevor grew up being raised as if he were just another of his aunt's children, which turned out to work out well enough for all the parties concerned that when his father did remarry Trevor asked to stay with his aunt. But his relationship with his father, and for that matter his uncle, was good enough to the extent that he ever saw either of them, given that it wasn't a period when British men were particularly Fun Dads even when they weren't away down a coal-mine.

...And now y'all are just waiting with bated breath for me to get to the question about their cutie-marks, aren't you. Oh, I know what they are. God help me, I know what they are...
