Personality: Dani Rivers is a kind hearted person who always takes her followers personal issues into account. She know every assassin and worker on her camp by name, even if no one really knows anything about her at all. She doesn't care about being liked, as long as she is respected and the laws are followed, she won't mind what people say or think of her. She doesn't like to make any moves without having all the facts, but once she is sure she was betrayed she will kill without mercy. Her eyes show many battles, and deaths. Years of experience running the Wolfpack took a toll on her, but in spite of that she is still devoted to the safety of the camp above everything.


Equipment: Dani usually walks unarmed on camp grounds. Outside she carries Sai daggers, a crossbow, and throwing knives.

Primary weapon: Sai daggers


Background: Dani's mother was leader of the Wolfpack, her father was a soldier of Blackpond. Needless to say that would never work out. Her father was executed, and her mother married a man inside the clan, and that was the only father Dani ever knew. When Dani was five years old her sister Sarah was born, and her training began.
From the beginning of her training to the end, she was flawless. No one had ever seen that kind of talent before in the Wolfpack, however... She refused to kill.
Her mother was about to terminate her training and consider her unfit to become an active, which meant she could never lead the clan. Before she got the chance to do so, Dani saw her seven year old sister being harassed by another clan member and killed the boy before he even had the chance to lift a finger on her. She became an active two years after the incident, at the age of fifteen. One year after that she met Bastian, who was an active member of an enemy clan. He was the target, but a mistake gave him the perfect opportunity to end her life for good, except he couldn't do it. Dani brought him home with her and lied to her mother about who he was, knowing he couldn't possibly go back after letting her live. No one knows until this day, the truth a about where Sebastian Rivers came from.
When Dani was 17, the camp was attacked by Bastian's old group, and her parents and little sister were killed, leaving her in command at a very young age, she swore to take revenge. Her apparent lack of knowledge led to several other members repeatedly trying to challenge her in order to take the 1st command, none of them lived to tell the story.
She remained leader without naming anyone for second command for almost a year, and when she chose Bastian, that rose hell amongst the older members, but her word was law and so there was nothing they could do about it. They could do even less when they decided to get married about a year later. Ironically, Bastian is the only person she would ever listen to.

So begins...

Crystal shivered, slightly, when hearing Allison's words as to what the poster said. Not only because of what that meant, but also for the overwhelming amount of mixed emotions locked up in such a small space. She concentrated in keeping herself under control and not bumping up against anyone, that would make it all worse.

Someone talked about taking action and soon after that, silence... Followed by even more noise. Crys didn't understand why her mother remained silent in the middle of all that chaos. She recognized the sound of the door opening, and then steps in the room. Someone was late, and a smirk crossed her face when the girl who had just entered spoke up, and she finally laughed after hearing Ali's reply to all that. "That's just suicidal! You people are suggesting we kill both leaders of two cities that are at war, disregarding the fact that none of them has an heir to take their place. Not that I care, but I really don't see how that will benefit us in the future. That assuming we could pull it off, which is unlikely."

Crys nodded, after she finished laughing. "Shut up. All of you. There's more to be said here... Isn't it so?" She faced the direction where her mother was standing, and waited for her reply, after the room finally fell silent.

Dani Rivers spoke "I'm afraid, the reward is the least of our problems. The actual problem is, the deaths occurred in areas near where our actives where assigned to, and three of our actives sent on assignment last night did not return. Honestly, I doubt they are still alive. So, as of this moment everyone is to remain on camp grounds until further notice. That is an order I seriously advice you not to try breaking. If you have any pending assignments, report them to a instructor. That will be all."

Everyone started leaving, back to whispering and seeming unsatisfied, Crys started to follow, but her mother called. "Not you Crystal. I need to speak with you."

Everyone began to leave, but Evin stayed. Although his idea was turned down, he understood that the idea was in the back of the minds of the leaders and big shots of the clan. When Dani told her daughter to stay back for a chat, Evin interrupted saying, "Before you two talk, I need to take to you Dani.". Although he didn't have a lot of power if any in the Wolfpack, he found it important to set his opinion on the matter and under these conditions, it seemed important for everyone to be able to voice an opinion without a bias.
"We can't just sit in the camp. We need to act now." He said, well aware that Crystal could hear. "If we sit around, we wont get anything done. There will only be political talk that will get us no where. It is important we get people out on missions in order for us to gather information at the least."
He began to walk closer to Dani, getting close enough that the rest of their conversation in private.
"I have a few hunches on who it could be. Now don't get me wrong, it is only a hunch. Some of these hunches lead me to high up in the ranks of Newhaven and one of them even leads me to the death of my friend that you want to know about. So I suggest that you let me follow these leads if you ever want to know the truth about what happened the day my friend died."

Allison left with the others without paying much attention, until she noticed Crys had stayed behind. She didn't really want to do this, and she knew it would be dangerous to get caught, but she also knew that there was something Dani hadn't told them.
She leaned against a tree, not far from the cabin, and closed her eyes. Slowly the words coming from the cabin became audible, although Dani wasn't speaking to Crys yet.

"Evin, you have been here almost as long as I have, and your parents were loyal friends to my family, so I will excuse your little act of disrespect to my authority. Yes, I am aware of all this. I am already gathering information, and when it arrives I will make my decision. Until then, no one leaves camp. I want the actives to be at hand when I decide on what to do and I need the instructors to keep track of their recruits. Trust me... I don't plan on hiding, but let us be smart. As to your request... I'll give an answer when I have all the facts I need. I'll probably have it by the end of the day."

Allison opened her eyes quickly and her sight returned a bit blurry. She waited a while until she saw Evin leave, and tried again.

"Crys, take this. Know what it is?"

"It's a graduation ring. Who does it belong to?"

Dani didn't answer, instead Allison heard the sound of two metallic objects being dropped on a wooden table. Two other rings. "These arrived not long ago. They weren't the first to be sent either."

Crys answered on a lower tone as if whoever she was talking about could hear them. "Is it him?"

Dani sighed. "Yes, probably. So we have three different situations here... The Hunter, whoever is behind this killings, and the growing reward on our heads."

"Four problems, you mean. There's also the traitor."

There was a long silence, and Allison wondered what Crys meant with that. Until she came across something she had failed to notice... Only the actives themselves, the leaders, and the instructors, would know where they would be sent on assignment. Dani finally answered, and Allison understood why she paused all that time.

"Yes... About that, this is the reason why I asked you to wait. The killings occurred on areas near where only three of our actives were working at, every time. One of which was the only active working last night who actually returned."

"Ali? Who are the other two?"

"Evin, and Takei."

Crys laughed. "Great... The psycho, the suspected traitor and the outsider?"

Dani chuckled "I never said that. But I want you to keep them on observation. Someone is giving out information."

Crys sighed "Mother... You are the only one who hasn't said that. I think none of them is the traitor. Evin grew up here, where would he go? Ali... You know her, she's border-line insane, but she's loyal. Takei is too smart to risk having another assassin clan after her, or at least I hope so."

"Ali has severe anger issues, she's young and impulsive and not too bright at times. Evin is very much fond of bending rules, and there's the treason issue. Takei is a gifted assassin, but she was born and raised in another clan, is natural that her loyalty is questioned from time to time."

Crys insisted. "Anyone would know that as well as you and me. They would be the easiest people to frame."

"And whoever did would have to watch them... Unless you suspect your father and myself of doing this."

Crys stifled a giggle. "No, of course not. I will do as you say. Where is father by the way?"

"Getting information in Blackpond. You will all know what he discovered later on. Now move along, I do have some thinking to do."

The door opened, and Allison stopped listening, but she still couldn't see. So she never saw who was suddenly pressing her throat, against the tree, until she heard a whisper "Listen in on my conversations again, and you're dead. Understood?"

Allison nodded, which hopefully Crys must have felt, because she was released moments later, and fell on her knees coughing and drawing too much attention.
