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.


The brute wished he was more confident in what to do with a pup now that it seemed he would be the father figure of one. He was one of the youngest of all his siblings so he had always been the one looking up to his older brothers, not thinking about what he would have done if the roles had been reversed. He knew that brothers and fathers were different, but Summer had learned a lot from Grey Wind and Ghost. Everything from hunting to fighting skills to just general knowledge about the world. His heart ached as he thought to the times when life was simple and he could just enjoy himself with his family. The brute was still in shock that one of his brothers was alive when he thought that he was the only one to survive the war that had come to his pack. And he didn’t even know who Grey Wind had turned into, being in Abendrot. It was years since the two had seen each other and so it wasn’t entirely fair for Summer to judge him when he had no idea what had happened to him for the other male to end up in his pack’s enemy territory. But he could not focus on politics right now. There was someone with him that needed his attention, and he was more than happy to give it to her.

The two vargs had come to the largest area of water in the pack, and he was surprised that Nzingha seemed uncomfortable around it. He knew that it could be a scary thing to one that didn’t know how to swim but she was a confident little pup and was not expecting to see her nervous. Summer offered to teach her how to swim, promising to keep her safe. He was even more surprised when she gave an angry retort. "It isn't like I'm scared of the water or anything!" Her much smaller form appearing angry was comical, but Summer kept his smile to himself, not wanting to make her feel worse or more frustrated. To prove that she was indeed not frightened of the water she took a small step forwards, her paw reaching out and touching the water briefly before retracting it back to the dry land. The smoky colored brute held in a chuckle at her actions. It was clear already that she was a proud wolf that did not want to appear weak or frightened, and he would not make her feel foolish for her actions, though it seemed a little silly to him to try and prove that she was not afraid of the water. Summer was not the judging type and would not mock anyone for the fears, even if they were not ones that he had or understood.

"I just... don't think it is right. We are not of that world just as fish do not belong on land except when caught for a meal." The older male could understand that logic, so he nodded his head in understanding, a smile appearing on his features. ”That makes sense. Just let me know if you ever change your mind.” The brute turned away from the water, flicking his tail to indicate to Nzingha to follow him back towards the trees. ”Let’s move on to something else then.” The pair headed towards another important part of the territory, the spot that he always held pack meetings at. It would be important for her to be able find it in the future to stay an active member of this pack. As they walked Summer asked her about Moondown Shadows, wondering what her time had been like in the other pack. "There are trees, ground, and sky. It seems much the same to me." Once more he nodded his head at her words. She was still young and had not been in the pack long so it was not surprising that she didn’t have much to say about it.

They had reached the clearing, some boulders and rocks scattered about where the trees had thinned. Summer turned his yellow orbs to the darker colored femme as she spoke, "Thank you for showing me this place. I shall remember it for future... meetings?" She seemed unsure of what would be going on here as she probably had never seen a pack meeting take place at her age. He would make sure that she would come to them in the future though so she could learn what went on during one. ”Yes, all the meetings are held here. That’s most likely when you will meet the rest of the pack, unless you find some other wolves in your wanderings in the pack. It’s important for all the wolves to show up to stay on top of what is going on in this pack and in others. And ranks are given out to those that come and participate in pack activities.” Summer sat down after speaking, enjoying the relaxed feeling of being with Nzingha and not needing to act like an alpha or deal with politics right now. The younger female continued asking questions, and he was glad that she seemed interested in her new life involving him and his pack. "So who else is here? Your family? Do I have a new mother too?" The brute knew that she had every right to ask these questions as she was new to the family and learning that she had an uncle, but her words still brought back hard memories all the same. He kept his face neutral though, not wanting her to feel bad about asking questions about her own family. ”Unfortunately you and I are the only family here. I do not have a mate so in that sense no you do not have a new mother. If you want you may think of Shae as your mother if that is how you saw her, or my sister Lady, who was your birth mother.” He paused for a minute, thinking for the first time in a very long time of Cora. He had brought her back to Bright Moon with him a long time ago, before he was alpha, in hopes of starting a life and family with her. But she had disappeared and he expected to never see her again. He shook his head quickly to focus back on what Nzingha had asked. ”I thought for a long time that my family was dead, until Shae told me about your mother. I also recently found out my brother, your uncle, Grey Wind also survived the war that I assume killed the rest of our family, besides your siblings of course. He lives in a pack called Abendrot.” He was not sure what else to say about the brother that he only recently found out was alive and really knew very little about now. He instead waited to see what Nzingha had to say about having such a small family and if there was other information about them that she wanted to know.
