Personality: Anik keeps most of his feelings to himself. He's quiet, and not very social. He's egoistic and doesn't care much for others felings, especially when it comes to other wolves. He's bitter and would be even more rude and cruel if he wasn't afraid of being attacked and pushed around, but he often takes advantake on smaller animals to let off his steam. Anik keeps telling himself he doesn't need anyone but deep inside he's just a lost soul that's seeking for companion and appreciation.
Likes: Being alone, winning a physical fight, being appreciated
Dislikes: Fighting, rejection, show-offs, being scolded, when other wolves are pushing him around just because he's weak or that they don't agree with him.
Anik is the son of Niju and unknown female wolf from the pack. He was a runt of his litter and he became ill at the very young age. Everyone were thinking that he would die as he was the weakest and the smallest pup. However, he survived, but after so many days in a coma Anik started to have strange visions from the spirits. The visions were mysterious messages mostly about future and often came to him at random or in his dreams and like it usually happens, everyone thought him crazy rather than gifted or useful. He was an omega of his pack, still being small and weak, and he was often pushed around or scolded for small things he hasn't even done. In the community that glorifies the biggest and the strongest, Anik separated himself from the other wolves, including his familly. The only wolf that took care of him was Nava, who attempted to teach him about the magic and spirits.
One day Anik overseed the coming of two wolfdogs that will change the pack. Indeed a few days after this, Aleu and Balto arrived. The mysterious female wolfdog stole the old wolf's attention who saw her as the new future for the pack. Once again Anik felt left out. He didn't contribute in the pack arguments over leaving the place (not like he had anything to say anyway) and when they were eventually leaving, he just sneaked away.
He didn't know Niju and Nava never made it through the ice bridge. He was temporary living in a small den, unsure what to do next, untill one day he accountered his father again. The big wolf easily took over Anik, forcing him to obey his orders as a father and new leader, but Anik refused. For the first time he was not afraid to speak his mind, even faking to have a vision just for frighten Niju, telling him he's going to die out there alone. Niju never thought of Anik as his legitimate son and he didn't have any feelings for him. He wanted to beat and kill the weakling for what he said, but after losing the case with the pack, he also felt lost and alone. They both agreed to stay together for a short time untill they find a new pack to live in. Soon Anik had an actual vision of meeting Nava again. The old wolf was weakened and close to death, but Anik still had a respect for him and wanted to comfort him in the last days of his life.
Now Niju and Anik live together as bachelors, supporting each other, even thought they still have reather cold relations and talk only when it's needed.
