Ume and Rei are the oldest residents in Elanti. Being born and raised in Elanti by it's former occupants- a pack of canines, from wolves to foxes, who worked alongside humans, specifically summoners and mages- humans who were talented in magic.
Ume, Rei and their brother Ko were the children of the Alpha's- 9 tailed fox Asami and dual-winged wolf Ryuu-, the original founders of Elanti. However, bandits ransacked the island, they hid in a underground cavern for 2 months, living off the trees and the roots and berries from inside. Their whole pack was murdered and the humans were taken prisoner and the bandits never came back. When Amaya arrived as one of the first, newer residents, they decided to go out, seeing as it was safe and knowing they were orphans, Amaya took them in and cared for them.
Through numerous adventures, they know all the little hideouts and secret caves the island has to offer. Ume and Rei reside in the large underground cavern, which provided their mother with herbs for her medicines, and also a connecting library that can only be accessed through process of teleportation, or access through the cavern.
Rei has taken on her mother's skill of being a medicine wolf, and little does she know, her genes. When she was young, her mother tattooed symbols across her body (painlessly via magic), and she still has yet to learn what they mean. Having read all the books in the library her mother owned with a human named Chrysocolla more than twice, she knows a variety of magic such as sorcery, witchcraft, alchemy and conjuration. Upon using powerful magic, normally when angry, the tattoos glow red, along with her eyes. When she was younger, she attempted some advanced alchemy and failed, being caught in a violent alchemic reaction and losing use of her second pair of wings. They have since been amputated, leaving her with only one pair like other winged wolves.
Ume works more with her father's magic of fighting and protecting the ones she loves, although she is able to use alchemy too. She is strong willed and very patient, like her sister and parents. and loves flying. Despite missing her own mother, she looks up to Amaya as a mother aswell, and admires her strength and 'magical' abilities, especially calling down lightning. After a birthday, Rei gifted her with a lightning staff, made by her very own sister. This allows her to use magical energy to call lightning and also has many other tricks to it. The blue on her fringe and tail glow in the dark, which she can control the brightness at will so she doesn't alert prey or other wolves through alchemy. During a fight with a larger wolf, one of the wings on her left side was severed, leaving her with only 3 wings instead of 4, but still perfect balance and flight.
