Perhaps changed most of all out of all of the packs is this place. It was stripped out of its forested home and now instead lays at the edge of an ocean. The vast sparkling eternity of the water lays to the south of the land, while the rest of the land is made of rocky outjuttings. Gone are the trees, and all that remains for greenery are the short shrubs that dot the paths in the rock, and the moss that grows thanks to the spray of the waves. Further toward the shore, barnacles are a plenty, and look to cut the pads of those who slip on the wet surface. These extend out into the water itself, and the tough land has multiple caverns scraped into it, providing ample dens for the wolves that live there. Depending on the tide, however, the lower caverns may flood, and the vicious swirling water may prove to be dangerous as there is a strong undertide ready to pull unsuspecting swimmers to their doom. Even the tide itself is powerful enough to push intruders against one cliff or another. The ocean does provide, however, plenty of food for those who brave the waters - there are many breeds of seals and sea lions, though the males that protect each of these are vicious and territorial. There are also turtles that come ashore to breed and to lay their eggs - both the adults and the eggs themselves can provide sustenance to the wolves. But they must take care - the water is deep enough to allow sharks to come to shore from the depths below. Those unwilling to venture the waves or wet their paws with the moist sand of the shore can find snakes and hares in the rocky outcroppings, but they must beware the Komodo dragon and other monitor lizards that perch upon the shore - they are swift and move in groups, not to mention they carry venom in their bite that causes immense pain, paralysis, and prevents blood clotting. This is not the land for the weak of heart or the weak at all really. This is Uyaraut - ‘The Diamond in the Rough’.


What is Dead May Never Die

Family. Duty. Honor.


Things had not happened the way the brute ever thought they would. Many moons ago he had given up any hope of ever seeing any of his family ever again. He had witnessed many deaths in the past where he had lived, but knowing that his father and mother were dead was one of the hardest things in life he had to face. He had been much younger when that all happened, barely a teen. Being forced to leave his home and family and knowing that he had lost his parents had been almost too much for him to bear. But he had survived it, as so many others had survived such tragic beginnings. Summer had assumed that the rest of his family, his two sisters, two brothers and half-brother, had all perished as well. His youngest brother had been especially hard. The brute had been in charge of taking care of the younger brute, but he had failed. Had lost him in a storm and had never seen him since. He felt entirely responsible for the loss of the younger and much more helpless brute.

And then, not too long ago, the brute had discovered that some of his family was still alive. His two sisters, Lady and Nymeria, had escaped the wars that had forced his family to flee their home. They had been in Blossom, in another pack, and he had had no idea. Sure he had traveled around a bit, especially since he had become an alpha, but he had never run across either of their scents. It had to be some insane lupine coming to his borders to tell him that his sisters still lived in order for him to find out. At first he had thought that the female kalak was lying, certain that if his siblings were alive he would know about it by now. But then he began to question himself until he had finally mustered up the courage to travel to Moondown Shadows and find out for himself. At first he had been pleased to notice the scents of Nymeria and Lady, but then fear had overwhelmed him as the harsh scent of blood entered his nares.

Summer never thought he would feel the pain he had felt in his past, until he saw Lady die right in front of him, right after seeing her for the first time in so long. Her small form was bleeding in a terrifying way as she gave birth, and terror had threatened to overwhelm him. The brute wished there was a way he could have saved her, but when he saw all that blood he knew that she would never survive. That female kalak had been there as well when Summer had fled the scene, knowing he was not capable of raising the three pups that Lady had given birth to, and he wondered why she was there, what her role was in this. But at the time he was too distraught to think much of it. He had even been too upset to try looking for Nymeria, even though her scent was strong in the packlands. The smoky brute had fled back to his pack, hiding in the confines of his den for days, ignoring the rest of the world. But now more time had gone by and he was starting to recover, knowing that he needed to attend to his pack and not continue to ignore the world.

As more time went on it became easier for the brute to go back to his regular routine. And today that was just what he was doing. Summer was patrolling the borders of his pack, marking his scents in areas where it had weakened, losing track of time and his thoughts as he traced the familiar path through the trees. Summer truly felt at home here, and it was moments like this that he knew this was where he belonged. He was enjoying the day, a warm breeze blowing through his smoky colored fur. For the first time in a while, a smile touched his features and he picked up the pace of his walk. As Summer was trotting through the trees when a call sounded through the trees and a scent reached his nares that made him halt. Shae A growl escaped him as he recognized the female’s scent. She had once again entered his pack uninvited and he immediately followed her trail, fur bristling in anger. As her scent went farther into the territory he got angrier, wondering why she felt like she was welcome here. Her scent went deeper and deeper into his pack and a rare snarl appeared on his features. Summer did not often get angry, and this was one of the rare times when he was.

As Summer followed Shae’s scent through his pack, eventually he ran into a small form on the forest floor, one that he did not recognize. He had almost stepped on the little thing with his angry trailing. For a moment he forgot about the trespassing female and focused instead on the pup, his anger instantly dissolving when he spoke gently to her. ”Hello little one. What’s your name? I’m Summer, alpha of this pack. Do you know why you’re here?” He did not yet realize that this was one of Lady’s pups, the scent of Shae so strong on the pup that any remnants of her birth mother gone. Regardless of who she was or who she belonged to, Summer was not going to hurt a pup just because it was somehow tied to Shae, even though he was not a fan of the other female. The brute slowly lowered himself to the ground, tail wagging gently, not wanting to scare the pup. ”You’ll be safe here.” His yellow orbs were warm and inviting, hoping that she would speak to him and tell him where she had come from.
