1. It has come to the attention of forum staff that Dollshe Craft has ceased communications with dealers and customers, has failed to provide promised refunds for the excessive waits, and now has wait times surpassing 5 years in some cases. Forum staff are also concerned as there are claims being put forth that Dollshe plans to close down their doll making company. Due to the instability of the company, the lack of communication, the lack of promised refunds, and the wait times now surpassing 5 years, we strongly urge members to research the current state of this company very carefully and thoroughly before deciding to place an order. For more information please see the Dollshe waiting room. Do not assume this cannot happen to you or that your order will be different.

    This doll's character is not available for offsite roleplay.
    Ilya (later Ilya Spire) is a selkie, which is a mythical creature that can transform into a seal...or, more accurately, it's a seal that can transform into a human. When a selkie transforms, they produce a seal pelt that they must keep track of. If a pelt is lost or stolen, they can't change back into their original seal form, and they are often ostracized from their clan (or at least seen as weird and undesirable). [I don't think that last bit is in any of the selkie myths or anything; I'm giving myself some leeway in developing their culture because I love world-building.]

    Ilya was attacked by hunters at around age twelve. Unsure of how to protect himself, he transformed into a human; the hunters, confused and scared, grabbed his pelt and ran, leaving Ilya to die in the snow. He was picked up by a pair of anthropologists studying cultures of the Arctic, who got him to a hospital in time to save his life. Weak and mortified that he had lost his pelt, Ilya agreed to go home with the couple, who later find out what Ilya is. After living with the couple at their Seattle home for nearly three years, they adopt Ilya and go back to the Arctic to help Ilya reunite with his two brothers: his twin, Nikos, and his younger brother Sylvan.

    Ilya is generally happy-go-lucky and loves sports, especially soccer; however, he's far too uncoordinated in the legs for any extensive running, but his excellent reflexes and hand/eye coordination make him a great goalkeeper. He played soccer through middle school and now high school. He enjoys traveling and hamburgers.
