Introduction

Welcome to Nigerius, a land of unparalleled wilderness and beauty much like our own world, but unlike ours it's land is dominated by great packs of wolves. Packs led by breeds of intelligent wolves that wield the mystical and primal power of the Elements. The Elements are the very source of all power and life in Nigerius as the Wolves once reveled in the splendor and prosperity it brought, once.


The wars are over. After some lucky heroes killed an exiled God (The details are murky about who killed who, who was on whose side, etc,.), the packs finally seemed to realize that they needed to stop fighting each other.

So some respectable leaders/alphas, came together to become a council. This council was mostly made of the larger packs, and though there were some smaller packs involved, like the endangered Alvans and Kamarians, this council soon saw a need to elect an Alpha of Alphas. Was it anyone from small band of lucky heroes? No! It was some commoner named Severan!

Anyways, let's not get into that nonsense now and get back to present affairs.

It's been a few years since the God Ixtec was killed, and the packs are still learning to coexist. That is until some old forgotten foes reappear, and this story begins with the finding of a Betrayer.

The Betrayer


The setting of the sun, gave the world an almost alien look, sending chills down the spine of approaching Tenneths who had been sent to scout the area. Roving bands of dangerous wolves, known as Purists, had been seen in the area. Purists were wolves who were against any mixing of the Packs, believing that pure blooded wolves of their elements were better off in their separate territories, away from each other. So that there would be no possibility of hybrid wolves appearing, since in the eyes of these Purists, hybrids were against the wish of the Gods and to let them exist would be a sin. Of course, the squad of Tenneths on patrol here were given orders to cut off these Purists from a newly settled Dimitrois colony between the Cancius Volcanoes and the ancient forest of the Avens.

One of only a handful of mixed-pack colonies inside Tenneth territory, this mostly Dimitrois settlement, could not be allowed to be hit by a band of Purists. It would only stir up more trouble, and give the Council of Packs more trouble to deal with in an already tough time as it was almost time for the Winter moon celebration. Probably one of the few celebrations that almost all the packs celebrated at once.

It was this future event that the squad leader, Roman, was thinking about. Of his mate and their surviving cubs of many yesteryears ago coming together again for the first time in awhile. It made him thankful for the Council of Packs, since they ended the wars, letting most Tenneth forces to go back to their homes and families instead of fighting to control the borders of their territory. He sighed, and it was this moment that one his young scouts came running.

"Sir, Sir!" He came to a stop in front of his squad leader, panting, "We found something! You have to see it!"

Roman was surprised, and instantly aware of the fear in his younger trainee. "What is it?"

"A monster of some sort."

*****

Inside the dark depths of a cave on the outskirts of what once was solely Tenneth territory, an abnormal wolf hid. A monster of a wolf, quietly panicking about the sounds of approaching wolves.

It gulped, unintentionally letting out a small whine.

The approaching paws stopped.

This time they started for sure in it's exact position. It let out a heavy breathe and it wasn't until the strangers' claws clicked on stone that it let out a snarl that sounded more like a roar. They were too close, and for sure, they had seen it.

The sound of it's aggressiveness snarling echoed in the cave it hiding in. It's tail swished against the cave wall as it stepped forward to pivot before walking into the cave wall, not seeing how close it actually was, and unintentionally scraping it's face against the harsh stone. The sound of metal hitting stone was loud, startling the Tenneths. It was a mistake for it to have moved, as the sudden feeling of heat made it stop for just a moment. Flames had been brought forth by the Tenneths.

"What is it?" A voice, smooth and barely gruff at all. Male. Young.

"I don't know. It's... Go get Roman." Older, more gruff, male. The one in charge. So far, only two of them had chosen to speak, but it was sure there were five of them. Maybe six. Scouts? Whoever they were, it had been cornered. By Tenneths no less. What a mess.

The monster licked it's teeth, and waited, wondering if it were worth the risk to try and escape. It probably wasn't a good idea. And yet, it's enemies also thought it wise to stay back and block the only exit. It was a standoff.

"Can you speak? Do you have a name? What are you?" The youngest voice spoke, letting his curiosity get the better of him. The monster was sure he'd get scolded for speaking out of turn... and within seconds, the older voice spoke, "Quiet. We don't want to stir the monster up."

It growled, "I have a name." The voice was obviously female.

The Tenneths stopped breathing for a second, and the sound of the nervous movement brought the monster's ears forward, straining to catch every bit of sound that would suggest an attack. "What is it? Your name."

Silence passed by, only accompanied by the hot breathe of the creature. When finally, with a deep inhale, she let the word fall out alongside the exhale. "Blue." Her jaws closed softly, only letting the sound of her breathing to fill the tense atmosphere.

She wondered how long this standoff would last before someone made a move. Apparently, she didn't have to wait long, because after several minutes that had also come with the arrival of this 'Roman' wolf, someone had moved too suddenly and Blue reacted by puffing up her hackles and lunging forward to snarl. This was quickly met with rowdy snarls and lick of heat searing her nose. Fire.

She jumped back, knocking her read end into the back of the cave especially scraping her hocks against the uneven stone. She almost lost her sense of balance and staggered to the right, hitting the side of her head against the wall. The metal she wore had taken the brunt of the impact, but to the Tenneths, it made them wonder at this strange creature in front of them.

Was it really a wolf? Why didn't it have eyes? Who could have wounded it so much?

In the end, after hours of watching it, a group had been stationed there to keep it confined, while their squad leader had dispatched a messenger to their Tenneth ambassador. Naming a few specific wolves to come see what they had found. Of course the squad leader wondered how this creature had known such high ranking and legendary wolves. Mydnyte. Durandel. Nova. Vesta. He wondered if they would come.

The Summons

Ascalon was a small city, barely even a city if you really want to be technical. Named after the sword that Severan used to kill a Naga serpent near Maxim lake, which is exactly where the city is located. On the coast of Maxim lake, right between Dimitrois and Tenneth lands. Supposedly the center of all of Nigerious, though some killer packs would disagree with that if they ever heard someone say that. And it was this place that Severan chose to make the permament location of the Council of the Packs, turning it into Ascalon.

Inside the barely completed building, which was mostly made of terracotta bricks, the council gathered. Er, at least half of the council was gathered in the War room. Some of the Council leaders, had more important matters to attend to, which for some reason, their messengers couldn't state officially when asked for their reason.

Although it was called a War room, it wasn't really like most war room where wolves would normally sit around a map and strategize blood thirsty attacks. No, it was more like an amphitheater, except there was a roof. Oval in shape, it was ringed with tiers of seat, and among these seats spaced equally apart, there were 17 raised benches. One for each pack's respective leader. They were closest to the central space of the war room, yet made so you would notice they were made apart from the rest of the seats. And in the western part of the War room, there was the King's seat. It was noticeably bigger than the rest, but currently empty.

In their benches now, a few of the Leaders sat, with some of their warriors or 2nd in command off to their sides. The room was mostly quiet, no doubt waiting for any others that were summoned to arrive, but if you heard some of the whispers... You would hear about the recent loss of two small Ausi settlements, and of how similar they were to the Saffron Massacre that happened years ago, just before the Battle against Ixtec.

After waiting a few more minutes, the giant door to the War room closed, and the room went silent.

They all knew why they were here.

"Any survivors?" The representative of the Aven pack, a green wolf of medium size, asked.

"We just got word. All wolves residing there were killed. She-wolves, cubs, and the elderly. Same as the missing Ausi settlements. No survivors." Eloin, a she-wolf of the Jivanta pack remarked darkfully, throwing the status reports on the table of her bench.

"Except this time, there appears to be a survivor." In strode a heavy set Tenneth General, his eyes moving from one council member to the next.

"General Aegus." The council members greeted the wolf, and nodded for him to continue.

"We scouted as you commanded and found the outpost barren. No wolves, but definite signs of a battle and ashes of what we think to be wolves that used to reside there." His voice was grim.

"Ashes?! Are you saying it might have been other Tenneths?"
"Why would Tenneths kill their own pack members?!"
"Liar!"
The council was in an uproar now.

"My advisors! Council members! Calm yourselves!" From the far corner of the War room, the King appeared. And slowly the Council room went silent again. "Continue Aegus," spoke the King, as he moved to take a seat on his Throne.

"We found an elderly Tenneth cowering in the fields." Aegus shouted, and turned to motion for his subordinates to let in the survivor.

The wolf was shaking, his eyes flickering quickly from wolf to wolf before bowing. There was blood on his coat.

"Tell them." Aegus commanded the old wolf to tell of what nightmare took place at the Outpost. The fear-stricken wolf nodded and began to talk. "My name is-"


THREE DAYS AGO

"Bronn, sir! They're starting dinner!" A young Tenneth cub yelled out, sprinting toward the earthen buildings. His grandfather looked up from his work and began to make his way to a dirt building that his daughter called home. Never thought in all my years, that home would be this. Earthen homes that the DImitrois created for us, but then again, I never thought peace could be acquired and I'd live under the first King's reign. The old wolf was stuck in his thoughts, not even noticing how achy his paws were from the day's work.


"That's when it happened."

A loud bloom of an explosion startled Bronn, making his heart nearly jump out of his chest. He looked up to see a great big fire of a spectacular blue-black shade reaching up towards the sky. On the other side of it, a small orange flame opposing it. Smoke wafted off from the gigantic flames, turning the clouds black. And as quickly as it appeared, the strange dark flames swallowed the orange flames in one move.

Then more explosions went off all around town. All of them were from Tenneths and whoever they adversary were... but there were also physical fights happening between wolves who weren't using their elements.

Bronn's incredulous look quickly became one of fear and he sprinted to his daughter's home.

He got there just in time to see his grandson racing at a...


"BEASTS. SHADOW BEASTS. GIANT SHADOW BEASTS."

It was outside their home, almost as tall as their home itself.

Bronn's grandson was running toward the body of his mother, where it laid in front of the giant shadow of a wolf. The dark shadow, was looking at him, it's eyes of ocean blue spoke only of dark deeds.

Bronn's fear was squeezing his heart, but his thoughts pushed him forward, telling him that the way the beast was... It's aura of hatred that was now directed at his Grandson... Would... Kill...


"I was too late."

Bronn hadn't even thought to used his element, only thinking, wishing, hoping that he'd be fast enough to push his grandsonout of the way...

But he was an old wolf, and his body failed, at the time he needed it most, and... His grandson left this world, following after his mother.

Bronn stumbled, the loss starting to fill him with hatred, pain, and anger. It gave him the strength to roar, to bring forth his element in the form of a great wall of fire directed at the shadow creature.

To his great and utter surprise, the attack was intercepted by a different wolf of even greater size. This wolf hadn't even any element to shield itself.


"It met the fire head on - No element. It didn't even burn!"

It was then that Bronn realized, the Shadow Giant that had killed his grandson, wasn't alone. No, there were others, all over town fighting, chasing and killing his neighbors. The bodies of his fallen Tenneth comrades were scattered all over the ground as well. He began to pant, his body begging him to run from this fight that he would no doubt lose.. But he had to avenge his daughter and grandson, as well as his neighbors.

He got back up, eyeing the shadow creature that interrupted his attack at the other, smaller one.

To his surprise, he saw that the biggest one before him... Although black like a Kamarian, roared and dark blue flames appeared on it's back, all the way down to it's tail, growing bigger just as another giant shadow wolf appeared to swing it's tail in his direction. The blue fire grew and jumped off the wolf to follow the direction of the other wolf's tail... right at him.


"I was so lucky. So lucky... to have survived that blast."

Bronn had been knocked off his paws, but he had managed to redirect most of the fireball, while the rest had scorched his some of his fur. He coughed, and hacked up some blood before slowly getting to his paws... And that's when he saw the large black paws right in front of his nose. He froze... Hearing every beat of his heart as he looked up, to meet the golden eyes of one of the giant wolves. Every cell in his body almost froze from fear... This wolf, stopped him from moving, from thinking with just one look... it made him blind to the unconcious body of one of his neighbors, being held in the jaws of this nightmarish wolf.

The shadow wolf, tightened his jaws and with a crunching sound threw the body on the ground.

Blood splattered all over Bronn, who just kneeled there. Too afraid to move.


The War Room was quiet for a moment, but the room was soon filled with hushed whispers.

Back in the present, Bronn shivered, "He said I would be his messenger..."

Aegus, looked from Bronn, to the King. He walked from the center of the War room, up to the King's throne and whispered into his ear. Suddenly, the King got up, growling. "Council meeting, dismissed!" The King whispered back to Aegus before leaving the war room, signaling for others to leave... All except the Alphas and the heroic wolves that had been summoned.

Nova

On the edge of the cushions set aside for the duly invited guests of the King, Nova sat with half closed eyes. It was not out of disinterest, far from it. He found the best way to observe was with his eyes closed. The sounds, fidgets, and emotions of the speaker seem to come through all the clearer when he was not trying to focus on a blur. It had not always been that way. In his youth he had been a scout for his pack, the eyes abroad for the reclusive Ausi. What he saw was what the pack saw. But those days were long gone, much like most of his sight, lost in the heroic raid he had grown tired of hearing praised time and time again. He could still see close up; the face of his mate, the smiles of his children. But everything beyond that was a blur. Noise. It was best to block it out when actually tying to listen.

The tale was harrowing, though sadly not too unique for any wolf who's life had been touched by the war, as Nova expected most of the Council had. Still, it was a tragedy, and Nova couldn't help but think of his own family during the wolf's retelling. The strangest part was the culprit of the crime. From the description it sounded like the work of a Kamarian. The Ausi had known plenty of those in his time to have seen several of their tricks first paw. But this particular villain seemed rather adept at their element. It was a shame when talent was wasted on the wicked.

Nova listened to the last pawsteps fade from the room, and respectfully turned towards his King. He opened his eyes to the blur ahead of him, a mark of courtesy to show his attention. As he awaited his words, Nova reflected on how marvelous it was that an Alpha of all Alphas had finally arisen. No more internecine bickering and fighting between the packs. Finally there was a wolf that could lead them together, and most important of all, keep the peace.

Augue & Vesta

It didn't take Vesta long to get bored of the meeting. She wondered why she was summoned to such a meeting. She had read the reports and even had some of her contact looking into the attack. Last she knew there was no connection to her prey, most wolves with any connection to the enemies of old were died, under constant watch, gave up their connection or have gone to ground. There just isn't enough to mount such attack, the few who try to remain active are little more then common bandits and are soon caught or killed.

It wasn't till General Aegue came in that Vesta showed any interest in what was happening. Then as the old wolf started to tell his story she perked up, this wasn't just an other attack. It wasn't even the fact that someone would attack that far into Tenneth territory but the nature of the attack, a connection to the Tenneth and Kamarian. Having fought along side both this hit very close to home. As she listened her blood ran hot, it hadn't ran this hot in years. She got so heated that she started to radiate heat. Her father who had been sitting next to her quietly listing to the meet gently put a paw on Vesta's back and whispered in her ear.

Augue turned his attention to his Alpha, Vermillion and his aid who give an approving nod. "These attacks are tragic but we have weathered far worse then this. For the first time every pack is untied and our world is at peace. We can not, we will not let who ever is behind this destroy all we and the heroes of old have fought so hard to build. We will increase our patrols and harden our supply lines. I'm putting our defense force on full alert, and going to start a quite sweep of our outlying areas. We will do what we can to reassure everyone that they are safe and our peace is still very much intact. We will of course provide what ever aid we can to the other packs. Now with that being said, I do have one last thing, why were the heroes of old, like my daughter and Nova summoned for this meeting? They have already done more then enough for us and deserve to be left in peace." Before anyone has a chance to respond, Vesta speaks up, "Forgive my father. I do not want to be given anything for what I did. I will fight for what is right, I will fight for peace, my pack, my friends and this world to the end of my days. And I promise this, I will find and end this or any other threat. But my father makes a good point. Why summon us when a simple order from my Alpha would have been enough?"

The Summons

All that were left to listen to Augue's speech were a third of of the Alphas present, all of whom just stared at the Tenneth and his daughter unnervingly.

The atmosphere had suddenly turned frigid.

"Great," A light blue Arlyne wolf in a Bench off to the side of the King's throne spoke, "Another Tenneth loyal only to her pack." Her voice was full of disdain.

Eloin, the Alpha of the Jivantas who had spoken earlier, growled softly, "You are a young Tenneth, and maybe someday, you'll see how immature that statement is, especially since you said it in front of us." Her words weren't as biting as Melisende's but the reason for such words was the same. Both she-wolves were older, and had obviously seen much of the wars as their current personalities did not match the usual description of their packs. They were no longer as friendly or happy go lucky as one would expect.

Throughout this exchange, General Aegus had stayed silent until now. "Leave the young Tenneth alone, and go back to your knitting, Eloin." The Jivanta rolled her eyes, "Just hurry and take your heros before "

He walked toward Nova, Vesta and Augue.

"To answer your last question, the King has a special... mission for the three of you. Follow me."

He led them to the far back of the War room, right through the door that the King went through, waiting for the door to close before he started talking.

"Ahem, for security reasons, we'll have to leave the city." An uncomfortable look crossed his face for a moment before he started trotting up ahead of the group. Minutes after trotting through the palace - which wasn't that big, due it still being mostly under contruction, they exited the King's palace through a secret doorway.

Since the city was still mostly being built, much of the buildings and bustling social activities were being centered between the King's palace and the coast of Maxim Lake. Meaning that no one saw them leaving the city, to trot toward the tree line. "We found it three days ago, the same day that the... attack happened." He started to breathe heavily, "try and keep up." From the way he was panting and lumbering forward now, any wolf could see that General Aegus would be retiring soon... Or killed on the job for being too slow.

*****

Once they were at the tree line, they were met by armed guards. Dimitrois, Tenneth and Canicus. Strong and dangerous wolves.

General Aegus coughed, "What you're about to see is the reason for the Summons, but before you go ahead.." He looked at the three wolves, "I was told that you two-" He looked specifically at Nova and Vesta, "Have had previous experience with this... Anomaly. Before and after the Rebel attack on Prometheus... And during the attack on Rashid and Ixtec. It's partially the reason that the King supported... it's request for you two." Aegus looked at Nova and Vesta. "And it also requested for Durandel, Mydnyte, Fang and Summanus. All of whom who couldn't be here, because, well. No one could find any of them except Durandel who, for personal reasons, couldn't be here."

"And you will meet who requested you in a moment," A younger Tenneth male wolf perked up suddenly. "She was very adamant about who she'd be working with."

Aegus growled, "Hush it, soldier."

The young wolf couldn't stop smiling.

Aegus looked up at the heroes and continued briefing them on the situation. "Now, the general populace thinks that it's these Purists who are attacking and killing settlers. While in reality, it has been these... Shadow wolves. The council has decided to keep this a secret, because of certain reasons. And we have learned what the goal of these Shadow wolves... And who their next targets will be..." He looked down, "We believe the Ausi capitol or Arlyne capitol will be next. And if our info is correct... Then that would mean... Everyone in either capitol would be... decimated. That's the reason you're here." He sighed. "That said, follow me and you will meet... who requested you." He got back up to lead them deeper into the forest.

The forest suddenly started getting unnaturally dark, and if either of the wolves had looked up, they would see the upper branches of the trees were woven to provide a canopy of some sorts. The branches had been so tightly woven, that eventually, not a ray of sunshine shone through the trees. The scenery looked so similar to forest in the far south, Kamarian territory. It was here, in the center of the darkness, was a large overgrown tree with a hollow trunk where the general stopped walking. He looked into the hollow of the trunk, and that's when it... moved.

The mass had been small but once it had started moving, it started to get taller and taller, until it stood.

The dark shape was that of a wolf, but one much, much larger. So much larger that, that one would almost assume it was a god in the flesh. Except... there was no God without eyes, or three tails. No, this was more like a monstrous remaking of wolfkind. On it's head, there was a smooth black metal skull mask over the wolf's face... The details on it were so well defined that whoever made it, must have been very talented... or very mad because while the details of the fangs were incredible, there were no holes for the eyes. It was exactly like a mask meant to blind a wolf in a very torturous manner, because while most Alvan masks only had the upper part of the skull, this one had a lower jaw attached... like it was made so that would never come off.


"Nova, and Vesta..." The large wolf towered over the heroes, no doubt using it's sense of smell to identify the wolves.

"It's been years since we last saw each other," Blue, the she-wolf who had betrayed them years earlier, killing both Blossom and Amarok who were former allies of Nova and Vesta, was standing right in front of them. And not to mention, how she had ambushed and imprisoned them for a week before the battle against Rashid and Ixtec.




Blue


For weeks, Blue had been wondering how this situation would go down and finally, here she was. Standing in front of wolves who had once trusted her enough to have her fight alongside them. Now, she was someone they probably detested... It would be amazing if they even bothered to stay and listen... and if they didn't... If they don't listen... We can just kill them. Kill them all and destroy everything. Eat all of creation! She let out a large growl, and her whole shape vibrated, flickering like there had been two separate wolves in exactly one spot, like a cell had tried to divide but was unable to. It was over in several seconds, but the soldiers who had been present were now on guard.

While the monster in her argued that this was pointless, deep down, she vaguely remembered how she had helped to set Nova, Khan, Vesta and Summanus free once the battle against Rashid had started years ago. And how she had turned on Sane, the leader of the 28, who had intercepted Nova and Summanus before they could get to Ixtec's prison. Of how she used her shadow kinesis to throw them out of harm's way, leaving her to fight was Sane so they could continue with their mission. That was the last she had seen of them... Until now...

Blue let out a rush of air, "I have difficulty... keeping the Dire wolf in me... under control."

Nova

As the group proceeded, Nova begin to feel an unease creep into him. He had come down to Ascalon on the understanding that this was yet another advisory assignment. He and the others had been called in at certain times and combinations to dispense points of wisdom that every wolf seemed to think they had. But they had never been asked to stay longer than a few days. He had intended to join his family in time for the Winter Solstice. As the longest night of winter, it was naturally the most important holiday on the Ausi calendar. And now they were trying to string him along for yet another mission! Why hadn't he just thrown away the letter like Fang apparently had?

The rumor of a capital attack was concerning...especially if it was his homeland. But why did the King think a half blind worn out Ausi would be a better choice than every other wolf he had at his disposal?! Nova couldn't think of any other reason beyond his famous name.

Still, it was good to see Vesta again. He had admired her when they last worked together. Her loyalty to her pack reminded him of his own, even if she was a bit more forceful in showing it. A memory flashed through his mind of their journey to the Vulcans before the factory raid. She had been so enamored by his description of the auroras over Fang Island, that she had almost blasted Blue with a fireball so that Blue would not interrupt the story. Nova had scolded Vesta for that...an action he has long since regretted once Blue had shown her stripes. Vesta would have saved them all a lot of trouble if she had just hit her target that evening.

"Nova, and Vesta...it's been years since we last saw each other."

"I have difficulty... keeping the Dire wolf in me... under control."

...no.

Nova looked at the wolf before him in abject disgust. The black blur in front of him was a monstrous corruption of a shewolf he had once thought of as a sister. He didn't even address her as he turned back to the blur of guards.

"If you had any sense you would have slain this demon the moment she showed her face. You want to know who to blame for the attacks? Here she is!" Nova spat, his face a mask of hatred.

He had never felt a more galling sense of bitterness towards any wolf than he had toward Blue. She was a traitor, a deceiver, and a murderer of pups. Whatever halfhearted attempts she had made at penance after the fact could not erase what horrors she had committed. He could not fathom why the King thought that reprieving this demon of her crimes was a lesser evil than whatever rumored danger was supposedly coming. The blood of Amarok, Blossom, and countless others was on her claws.

Augue & Vesta

"Another Tenneth only loyal to her pack." The words angered Vesta greatly, "Of course I'm loyal to my pack. So are all of you. This whole uniting under one Alpha was done because it benefits your pack, nothing more. To act like you are loyal to anything more is a waste of time. At less I was welling to fight along those of other packs. I scarified again and again because I saw a danger that was bigger then just my pack. I fight for everyone you fight less pup." Vesta thought as the general lead them out of the room. How could any question any of their loyalties, have they not proven they care for more then themselves, more then their packs. As for wanting a simple order from her Alpha, well she is a soldier and a simple order sent down the chain would work just fine. She hated being called to these meeting, how could she get anything done when she was always in a meeting. At less she gets to see Nova again.
The two of them may not have always saw eye to eye but he was her friend and as far as she was concerned he was a member of her pack. He always seemed to be a level headed wolf despite everything they went through, he was a wolf you could always rely on. One of her hopes is to one day see the land of his pack, to see the wonders of the Northern isles. She could still remember Nova tell her about his home and how magnificent they sounded. She felt bad that in all her travels with the task force she never made it that far North. Maybe when this was all over the three of them could finally make the trip together.
Just as Vesta was starting to relax she froze. No matter what she did she couldn't get her body to move at all. After a moment it became clear as to why.

"Nova, and Vesta...it's been years since we last saw each other."

...

"I have difficulty... keeping the Dire wolf in me... under control."


Of all things the general could have shown them, he had to show them her. In her task force they gave this wolf the title of target Alpha, with the order to contain it till Vesta could get there to confirm it was her and to kill it herself. Now this abomination stands before her... protected by her pack. "If you had any sense you would have slain this demon the moment she showed her face. You want to know who to blame for the attacks? Here she is!" Nova was right, if anyone was behind such attacks it would be this traitor. Vesta blood ran hotter then it had ever run, so much so that with every breath flames shot from her nose. "She saw you as a sister! Did you know that? Do you care? Out of everyone she choose you! She loved you more then anyone else!" She stopped to let out a heavy fiery sign. "She was so innocent. She was only a pup but had more heart and hope then anyone I have ever met. She deserved this peace more then any of us. BUT NO! You had to betray her! I may not be able to invoke the right of vengeance but I swear, the moment you make your move I will be there to kill you. I swear on the blood of Amarok I will kill you betrayer."

By this point any Tenneth can feel the heat building in Vesta, this type of build up normally leads to one thing. With that much heat the wolf releases on all or nothing powerful attack that leaves the wolf completely burnt out. As soon a Vesta stopped yelling, Augue, who had been following a few steps behind ran up to Vesta. Staring directly into her eyes, "Vesta focus! Control the flame or the flame will consume you. You are stronger then any flame, remember who you are. You a Tenneth, you are my daughter, and most importantly you are a friend." He smacks her across the face with his paw forcing her look at Nova. Vesta lowers her head and starts to focus on controlling her breathing, which seems to help calm her. Augue turns to Blue, "We have never met but I have heard many things about you. You were loved and betrayed those would cared about you. My own daughter would have died to save you. For this I can never forgive you. But if the general and our Alpha thinks you can help, then speak quick and speak true... or I will kill you." Vesta lets out one last soft sign, "I am sorry Nova, Armarok, Mydnyte. Durandel I am truly sorry, were ever you are forgive me." Vesta whispered.

Blue

The verdict was clear in seconds.

"If you had any sense you would have slain this demon the moment she showed her face. You want to know who to blame for the attacks? Here she is!"

"She saw you as a sister! Did you know that? Do you care? Out of everyone she choose you! She loved you more then anyone else!"

"She was so innocent. She was only a pup but had more heart and hope then anyone I have ever met. She deserved this peace more then any of us. BUT NO! You had to betray her! I may not be able to invoke the right of vengeance but I swear, the moment you make your move I will be there to kill you. I swear on the blood of Amarok I will kill you betrayer."


Blue didn't feel ashamed or guilty in this moment. All she felt was fear, fear that they wouldn't see the point of what she was doing. That they wouldn't see past their hatred to help her save...

There was a rise in temperature, and it made her go still. She couldn't see Vesta's face, but from the pitch in her voice, she could tell she was angry. How angry? Massively angry, according to Vesta's father who was now speaking. "We have never met but I have heard many things about you. You were loved and betrayed those would cared about you. My own daughter would have died to save you. For this I can never forgive you. But if the general and our Alpha thinks you can help, then speak quick and speak true... or I will kill you."

Blue wanted to laugh at that... death threat, but she covered it with a sigh. "Oh, if you knew what I knew, you would see that death for me would be a mercy."

General Aegus let out a growl, "Ain't that the truth."

Blue curled her lip in disgust, using her body language and expression to show her low opinion of the older wolf. "It was war, and if I remember clearly, everyone had blood on their claws. Some, more so than others."

General Aegus looked away.

In the silence, a young wolf off to the far right of the group spoke up, "Shouldn't we get back to the main reason we're all gathered here?" It was the younger voice, the one who had found her in the cave a week earlier.

Blue turned her head in the direction of the voice, as did the General and his warriors. There was a small pause before the General started talking again, this time, he stayed on topic. "Like I said earlier, the King, requested for your attendance because of your experience with this... thing and it's previous packmates. And so far, over the last few days, we have found the information it provided us with to be true."

He got up, "See for yourself." He opened his mouth and exhaled fire right at Blue.

One would have expected her to flinch or even scream, but no. She didn't flinch at all, didn't even move until it was too late, and-

A hissing sound erupted from the black mass that was Blue, and in the flames, you would see her form become larger, like someone had just dumped black ink all over and it was squirming out of her fur like it was alive. She snarled in discomfort, moving so quick that it looked like she was uncontrollably shaking in one spot.

The surroundings warriors only watched in disgust.

"We've tried to.... kill it once we found out who it used to be. And that's how we found out it was telling the truth." General Aegus turned around, "We've tried various ways to see if any of us, could kill it and all have failed."

Blue, who was now grimacing, no doubt hating the memory of their 'various techniques' snorted, "Our creator wanted us to be better than being mere mortals... so he made us immortal, but at a price. He turned us into monsters so that we could do his bidding, and the rest of my... former packmates had no problem with this. And they're already taking out those packs that would cause trouble for them."

General Aegus then looked at Nova, "And from what we can tell now, they're heading for the Ausi capitol next."

For once, Blue was glad she didn't have her eyes anymore. It spared her from having to look these wolves in the eyes, to face her crimes and see their pain.

"And they're not heading there to see the sights."

"We already sent a regiment to track the 27 dire hybrids and their orders were to track, and attack only if provoked. A couple days earlier, we found what we can only assume is their ashes. And from the tracks that had been left behind, the evidence suggests they had only encountered one of the hybrids... And they all died." The younger voice chirped up again.

"Hush it, Iko." General Aegus snapped. "Another moment of insubordination and I'll have you a sentry duty for a whole moon cycle."

#, as written by Krypt
Nova

Nova seethed at the impossible situation that he had yet again been forced into. In the past he would have been scornful of Vesta's show of passion, but now he just wished he could express his anger half as well as she could. He was never going to answer another summons to Ascalon again. This King was nothing but a fool if this was the plan he thought of to deal with such rumors.

He didn't doubt the seriousness of the reports. He had seen enough weird things in his previous misadventures to keep a storyteller in business for several lifetimes. Neva City had been attacked before, it could easily be attacked again by this supposed group of immortal wolves. And if the report of the regimental slaughter was to be believed, the additional defenses his father had overseen construction of would only marginally impede their progress. They would have to move quickly in order to muster the garrison and put the vulnerable into the deep ice caves. But even if this whole thing was real, Nova saw ZERO reason to bring Blue and her demon along.

"Vesta and I will warn my pack. You should stay here and learn how to execute this criminal as soon as her information proves false," Nova spat, having no qualms about ordering around wolves of alleged higher rank.

He didn't care how the new government styled them. They asked for him to come, and he would be the one calling the shots. Otherwise this fragile new kingdom could kiss his services goodbye, and to hellfire with the peace. At least in war he could kill the courier who came to take him away from his family to play escort to a murder.
