Tou Fengariou

Recommended Posts

Tou Fengariou

Tou Fengariou is a small wolf pack that once lived in a valley carefully nestled between two mountains. The pack thrived in a peaceful environment surrounded by emerald forests, azure skies, and crystal waters, but that all changed one winter.

 

As winter began that fateful year the Alphas had a litter of pups; born early and very weak, all but one pup died. The survivor was a female named Spanios. She was named such due to the rareness of her coat, which was a shimmering silver as bright as the moon. As the pup grew up she fell in love with a low ranking warrior, Raphel. Raphel was sired by an omega but birthed by a warrior. His parents' love was a forbidden affair; pack law said an omega and a warrior could never mate. Because of his parentage, Raphel would always live in disgrace within the pack. Knowing of Spanios' love for him, Raphel quickly baited her into thinking he loved her as well, and towards the end of winter he killed her to get back at the pack that had disgraced him. Fleeing the punishment he would have received had he stayed, Raphel was never heard from again. When the pack found Spanios' dead body they grieved, waiting for winter to end. But warmer weather didn't come; the deer and bison never returned, the creeks stayed frozen, and snow still blanketed the ground. Proclaiming that the land was cursed, the pack moved to new land for a new start.

 

Plot

You are a part of Tou Fengariou Pack that has just come to a new stretch of territory to restart. Protecting the pack as your oath sworn law you must find water sources, set borders, hunt, and clear out dangers. And always remember you are a part of Tou Fengariou, Pack of the Moon.

 

Territory

The Tou Fengariou Pack presides over a large stretch of land, to the east, mountains and snow await as well as pine forests and herds of moose. To the south lay plains full of bison and grass spotted with a tree here and there, and northwest lies a thick forest of oaks and birches, full of deer and foxes. A wide river runs through the western part of the territory, feeding many streams.

 

Oak Forest; Deer is what is most plentiful here as well as foxes and badgers and even rabbits when the pack gets hungry. There is also an abundance of herbs for the Healer to use. Dangers in this area include bears and the occasional cougar.

 

Grasslands; Bison roam in herds throughout the plains and grasslands, as well as an occasional wild horse. Water can sometimes be scarce here in summer months. Dangers here are relatively small, including wildfires and hawks that can carry off pups.

 

Mountains and Pine Forest; because of the layer of snow that stays through most of the year the prey most often caught here is moose and elk. Because of the cold the healer may have a hard time finding herds and moss to treat injuries and sickness. Dangers here include, much like the oak forest, bears, cougars, and snow leopards.

 

River; along the banks of the river, large birds and otters hunt fish in the shallow water. Some wolves also hunt the fish, either for fun or if the pack is low on food. Deer can also be found on the banks of the river and dangers include bears and poisonous snakes.

 

Mating and Pups

If you and your mate wish to have pups, please PM me so I can put up a notice that pups are going to be born and need RPers; keep in mind that wolves breed in early winter and pups are born in spring when prey is most plentiful. Also not all of the mating pairs will have pups the same year; the only pair that usually always produces a litter is the Alpha pair.

 

Overthrowing the Alpha

When a wolf feels that the Alpha is being unfair or just wants to be Alpha themselves, they can challenge the Alpha. The usually leads to a fight until one of the wolves has surrendered or been forced to stand down. If the opposing wolf fails, they are dropped to Omega rank or even driven out. If the Alpha is beaten, the new Alpha may or may not drive them out or let them continue as a warrior or omega.

 

Death and Religion

If a wolf dies in the pack they will usually bury the wolf and mourn through the night, howling slow songs of sadness as well as ones describing the afterlife, which the wolves think is a passageway to the stars. The wolves think that a soul can only make it to the stars in spring and summer months, so if a wolf dies in winter or fall they must wait on the earth and may sometimes communicate with the Healer or Alphas of the pack, though rarely any others. Wolves in this RP have an average lifespan of 15 years. (I know this is older than wild wolves in reality.) The wolves believe in two gods, Reliantiano and Tequiano. Reliantiano takes the form of a cougar with antlers and silver eyes and is only seen in winter and fall. He is the god of death, souls and the afterlife. Tequiano is a deer with wings and golden eyes, only seen in summer and spring, and is the goddess of life, good fortune, and new birth.

 

New Pack

If you would like to create a rival pack for Tou Fengariou just PM me descriptions of territory, dangers, hunting, etc., pack members, pack name, and so on, all the basic information about the pack. Please keep in mind that if Tou Fengariou only has a few members I will not allow a new pack, it would make more sense to populate the one already in existence.

Rank

Alpha, Alphas are a mating pair that rule the pack and make all major decisions; they can make disobedient wolves omegas and loyal ones seconds or thirds. They are the first to eat at kills and their pups are the most protected.

Beta, Betas, also known as seconds, would become alphas if the alphas were to die before one of their pups became a warrior. The Betas help upkeep discipline, advise the Alphas, and eat second. The Betas are a mating pair, usually the Alpha's first pup and their mate.

Delta, Deltas, also known as thirds, may or may not be a mating pair and are third to eat. Deltas help organize hunting and fighting as well as advise the Alphas.

Healer, Each pack has a healer who treats sickness and, if necessary, battle wounds. They never mate; their love and commitment must be to their pack and their pack alone. Healers eat fourth. If the pack finds itself without a healer or with a partially trained apprentice, the soul of the last healer will stay on earth long enough to complete the training of the new healer through dreams.

Warrior, Warriors are both hunters and fighters. When a pup completes their training, they become a warrior. Warriors upkeep the pack and protect the borders. At this stage a wolf can find a mate, have pups, or work to become a Delta. If a wolf feels the need to retire because of old age they must approach the Alpha and ask to be an elder (please notify me via PM) They are sixth to eat.

Apprentices, When the Alpha feels it is time for a pup to begin training, he or she meets with the parents and discusses an appropriate time for apprenticeship. If the parents agree, the Alpha then appoints the apprentice to either a warrior, including Delta, Beta or Healer, rare as there is only one healer. The pup then begins their training with their mentor. The mentor will notify the Alpha when they believe their apprentice has completed their training.

Queens, Queens are she-wolves that have or are expecting pups. During this time the she-wolf lays down her duties as a warrior and moves to the nursery until her pups become apprentices. Sometimes queens will leave the pack for a few months, staying in the territory but being fed only by their mate. They are fifth to eat.

Pups, Pups are what the name implies: pups. They have not yet become apprentices and fill most of their day with games and adventures inside the camp. Pups are not allowed outside the camp. Fifth to eat eat once they are weaned off milk.

Elders, Elders are wolves that have already served their pack for years and rest in the peaceful life they deserve; apprentices and omegas take care of the elders and both apprentices and pups will go to the elders den for stories of long ago. They are fifth to eat.

Omega, Omegas are wolves that have broken rules or transferred from another pack. The last to eat, omegas are not treated with much respect and may go hungry during winter. Omegas tails should never go very high, and they are sometimes forces to grovel and show their neck and belly to Alphas to avoid a painful bite around the muzzle.

Her mind is as quick as her tongue, which can give a thorough lashing when she is scolding an ignorant warrior who has injured themselves. She is, as expected, extremely gifted with herbs and healing, and when she knows she's right about something, particularly about whether a wolf needs a rest, good food, or a particular herb, she will not back down under any circumstances.

Picture (optional):Rhage

History (optional): Rhage was a very protective brother often fighting those who picked on her.

Mae:

 

Yawning she rolls onto her side and stretches... "Daddy??" She sits up fully looking around blindly. She wags her little tail and stands, clumsily walking forward and into a bush. "Eeep!" She falls back into a abrupt sitting. Her ears flop slightly forward. She stumbles around blindly as she "looks" for her Daddy, the Alpha. She runs straight into the middle of the den before even realizing it. She sits down abruptly as she looks around blindly, her golden Alpha's stripe shining brilliantly as it was just washed along with the rest of her black fur. Yawning she asks again, "Daddy you dere?" She tilts her head and listens carefully.

 

Nevicata:

 

Emerging from the oak forest she stretches her thin body she raises her head flicking an ear quietly. Her thick white fur glitter in the morning light. Turning her head she leaps to attention as a fox runs past her. She growls menacingly as she chases after it swiftly, a growl erupting from the base of her throat. Leaping she catches the fox by the tail as it struggles trying to bite at her. Chuckling she tosses it into the air and catches it by the throat, her teeth killing it. She adds that to the many rabbits and squirrels she caught as she takes those back to the pack den site. She heads past the healers area and then the queens and pups site to see that Mae is gone. Setting the meat in the pile she looks around and spots Mae in the middle of the site, calling for her father. Unsure what to do she just sits and watches.

Altair sat quietly as she watched her mentor chase off a bright orange, wolf-like creature. A fox. That mangy old scavenger won't get any of our meat, she thought with a smirk. Seconds after the nasty grin had appeared, all evidence if it vanished from Altair's face, though her tail still twitched erratically. Forcing it to stay still, she let it drop to the ground and closed her eyes, listening around her. The noise of the wolf's camp was mingling with quick scurrying sounds of the rodents around her. She continued to sit in the lush, dew-covered grass, waiting for Nevicata to take her for the day's lessons.

 

Though several minutes had passed, the only movement visible from the stone-still body of Altair was an occasional twitch of her ear, which flicked whenever its owner heard a particularly loud sound. The insects buzzing around we're ignored. The only thing that seemed to make contact with Altair was sound. Buzzes so quiet that nobody else could hear, growls so distant that nobody else would pay a second glance- for Altair, that was the only thing worth takin gnome of at the moment. With every sound from a wolf in the pack, Altair would imagine what they had done to cause the sound, finding ways to avoid doing the same thing herself. Even without her mentor, Altair was always thinking, always learning, always training. Even in the statue-like state she was in, Altair was ready to jump into battle, to erupt into a flurry of movement at any second. The most important thing to Altair was to be the best, and to do that, she must be alert, and always practicing.

Walking into camp after a morning walk he always took before dawn Elric quickly spotted Mae and walked over to her, his ears perked in the approximation of a smile for a wolf. Licking the top of her head Elric nudged her toward the nursery den, "And what are you doing up so early?" he said in mock seriousness as they progressed to the den. Internally sighing Elric wondered if Mae would ever be a warrior. She was smart, resourceful, and creative but the life of a warrior could be hard and a blind wolf was unlikely to ever even pass training. Her litter mates were already apprentices and on their way to becoming warriors, would she ever follow in their footsteps? Elric had always wondered if Mae could become a healer, she wouldn't need her eyes, she wouldn't have to fight, and Mae seemed to be perfect for the job.

Nevicata:

 

She returns Returning to her apprentice she speaks up "Tell me something. What did you notice about my demeanor when I went after the fox? Did I do it properly or without thinking and messily..." She twitches an ear and stares at her apprentice with her fierce white gaze. Sitting in front of her she moves her stub of a tail slightly in a faint throbbing pain. "Another thing, Why didn't I use my claws? Only my teeth? Would it have been better to use my claws and my teeth or either or..." She tilts her head and watches the she-wolf infront of her carefully.

 

Mae:

 

She looks blindly up at her daddy and nips his scruff. "Daddy when can I become an apprentice!?" She playfully stands on her hind paws and punches the air with her paws. She sits and ticks her tongue out goofily, wiggling in her spot. Her ears twitch slightly and she turns her head towards the forest, hearing the slight whisper of another running off somewhere. Standing again she uses her hearing and scent to walk calmly over to the big rock near the entrance of the den she pushes it slightly and reaches under the rock to pick up a bone she was hiding. She carries it in her mouth back over to her daddy and offers it to him. "Here you go!"

Looking down at the bone Elric smiled, "Thank you very much Mae." he said picking up the bone and gnawing on one end of it, "It taste very good." Setting it down again Elric looks lovingly at his youngest pup, "And if you were to be an apprentice what would you want to train to be?" he asked, It would be too good if she said healer. Elric thought to himself. Edited by Raven301

Only when Nevicata finished her barrage of questions did Altair open her eyes and begin moving more like a normal wolf. She wasn't at all scared by the numerous questions. Things like this were to be expected from Nevicata, and she was one of few apprentices that could provide answers to all of them. Without so much as blinking, Altair lifted her head and stared the snowy wolf in front of her right in the eye, not caring that it was against hierarchy rules. "You went at it with a fercocious aura so you could scare it, and trick it into thinking you were stronger than you really are. I think this was a risk worth taking, because even though its fear might have strengthened it, you would still be a better fighter. It only made the fight easier. You executed the kill excellently, not doing any more damage than was necessary. Though some would argue that the toss was unnecessary, I think it made the kill easier, and spared the fox any possible pain that it would have experienced if you had missed the killing bite. Killing it was also the right choice, because it was clearly too old to have pups, and was dying of hunger anyway. You simply spared it of any more suffering. Not using your claws was another way to reduce pain for the fox. Clawing is stronger and generally leaves larger wounds that last longer. If you had clawed the fox, it would have fled and later died of wounds. Bites are weaker, but used on the correct areas can cause quick death with a much, much shorter time of painful survival.

Tangar

 

Tangar awoke, a yawn splitting his muzzle wide. He slowly got up, and began to make his way towards the area of the den where someone had left some food. Not wanting any to spoil, he dug into a rabbit for breakfast. Looking up from his finished meal, he licked his muzzle and gazed around the cave, and upon seeing little Mea, his face broke into a grin. Though she was a the runt of his Alpha's littler, he could tell that she had potential. For what, he did not know, but the determination was there for whatever it might be.

"Good morning Elric and Mae." He greeted with a bow of his head in respect to his Alpha as he waked by.

Mae:

 

"Good morning Mister Tan!" She wags her tail and looks at her Daddy "I want to be like Mister Tan!" She paws playfully at her daddys feet before laying and rolling onto her back and making a pitiful look "Plleaaaaaaaaasssse." She pouts and whines softly in the back of her throat. She holds her front paws against her chest as she tries to get him to allow her to be a warrior's apprentice. She wants to fight, she LOVES to fight, but her eyes are an a disadvantage.

 

Nevicata:

 

"Excellent. I'm proud of you." She nods and turns, indicating that she wants Altair to follow. "So Tell me this, have you been practicing your hunting? Or your tracking?" She raises her head slightly and sniffs, turning her head slightly "And what do you smell??" She sits and raises her white paw, licking the ebony claws before staring fiercely at Altair. Her ears raised slightly.

Tangar

 

Tangar chuckled softly as Mea rolled about. He grew worried for her though when she mentioned wanting to be a warrior. Though she was a fierce little tyke, Tangar could not picture her fighting without sight. However, he decided to keep silent, as he feared angering his Alpha should he say something that Elric did not agree with.

Altair barely took a breath before answering. She continued breathing normally, but didn't visibly try to take in more scent. She knew that it would make it seem like she hadn't been observing before, and that would lower Nevicata's respect for her. Just taking in air, however refreshed plenty of scents she had noticed before. The dirt and grass smelled of rain, though the scent was everywhere. Altair didn't pass this off as nothing. She made a mental note to figure out later. There was a strong musty scent, presumably of old food. In the confusing tangle of scents where all the wolves were, there was a horrible smell. Obviously, someone was sick. I won't answer the questions about practicing. Nevicata already knows the answer. Altair took a final breath before answering. "It must have rained last night, even though there's no rain left on the ground. The dirt and the grass smell damp, just like when precipitation falls from the sky. It must have been rain, because in this season, there is no snow or hail, and the fresh scent is one that only rain can hold. There's old food that's beginning to rot. The sickly smell coming from the food pile determines that. Also, someone is sick, from that stench.

 

Altair knew she had been assigned a tough mentor. She knew Nevicata went hard on her. She knew she was incredibly quick, physically and mentally, and she knew how weak she was in a fight. But most of all, she knew she was almost at the age to graduate from being an apprentice. It was almost time for her to be a warrior. She was almost old enough. She would become a warrior as soon as the age limit got out of her way. I just need something to impress Nevicata right now... Don't show it... Search subtly... That's when it hit Altair. Yes, the rain-scent had come from the land, but it was also in the wind. Once she noticed it, every other sign became obvious. The way the wind was moving, the temperature, and the most noticeable, the scent of rain. Altair mentally kicked herself for being so stupid. Why hadn't she noticed the way the scent moved? Why hadn't she figured it out right away?! There's still rime to salvage this. You haven't made any physical movement of panic yet. The single thought spurred her to add to her answer. It will also rain today. Every sign of precipitation is present, and the season is correct as well.

Nevicata;

 

"You are mostly correct, but are missing one scent, an important scent..." She flicks an ear and bares her teeth slightly, "You missed the scent of the male grizzly about 200 hundred feet behind me when facing you. He is a threat, and what do we do when there are larger threats that need to be handled.." She lifts her muzzle and lets out a fierce but beautiful howl, her howl has the edge of warning woven into it's beauty as it carries on the wind, muffled to the bears ears. Turning her head she raises her hackles and speaks in a firm tone "This is your true test, to see if you can become a warrior...Pass this test and live you move up early, fail....and well...you die.." She says as she begins to stalk forward into the direction of the mighty bear.

Altair followed Nevicata quietly. Not a single sound was made when she moved, and she didn't talk either. Though this could easily be mistaken for fear, it wasn't. Altair was silently fishing out bits and pieces of information about the way bears fought. She knew that knowledge was the key to victory. She could hear the bear, it was nearby. One last time before she entered the battle, she repeated the facts about a grizzly's fighting style. Strong. Powerful. Angered. Defensive bodies. Sturdy legs. Slow. That will be the key to my victory. Speed. There's no way the bear can hit me if I'm faster. Without another word, Altair leaped into the bear's face, but slammed her paws down only inches away, and darted around the bear in three quick, nimble steps. Once she had circled behind the bear, she landed a quick blow with a front paw, careful not to use her claws. Her eyes narrowed in satisfaction when the bear whirled clumsily around. Ducking away from a bite, Altair popped back up as soon as the bear's head backed up, and slashed with both forepaws at once, successfully cutting open both of the bear's soft ears. Carefully slipping under the bear, she spun on one paw once she was through the other end, and hopped back several tail-lengths. Now blinded by blood, the bear was stomping around, trampling all the grass around it.

 

Suddenly, one of the bear's flailing paws was in Altair's face. She ducked, but the bear still managed to make contact. It actually would have been better if Altair hadn't tried to avoid it, because the grazing impact on her side was with the bear's long sharp claws. A second swipe while Altair was recoiling from the pain sent her flying. Her light weight both hurt and helped her at the same time. She flew much farther through the air, but the air-time gave her the time to regain her footing. Landing solidly on all four paws, Altair glared at the bear, waiting for it to make its next move.

Nevicata:

 

She growls and lets out a snarl to distract the bear from Altair for a second, giving her the opportunity to strike again. She nips at the bears ankles before stepping back in the shadows, watching Altair again to make sure that she is safe. Noticing the blood on the bears face she grins fiercely and bares her teeth in sort of a smile. Her hackles are still raised as she watches proudly as her apprentice figures the strategies of fighting a mighty beast like a bear.

Altair blinked when Nevicata decided to help her. Her mentor had attacked the bear and retreated in a split second, using speed that rivaled Altiar's. Though the short ime of distraction was essentially useless, Nevicata had bitten through a tendon, leaving one side of the bear weaker than the other. Now off-balance and on a rampage, the bear was injuring itself, crashing into trees and tripping over stones. However, even in its crippled rage, it was a tough, sturdy enemy that Altair had to defeat. Defeat... Sturdy... Sturdy usually means heavy, and weight makes running harder...the way to beat this bear is obvious. It wont be able to survive more many more days. A week at the most, with the paw injury...

 

Altair twisted around the bear as it tried to crush her with a giant trunk of a leg, and successfully twirled around the bear. When the bear tried to stomp on her again, she dodged backwards, and the pattern repeated several times, until Altair began to run. The bear chased her, albeit clumsily. It was clear the bear was having a hard time locating Altair with only its nose, because Altair was a swift, silent runner. With dried blood in its eyes, avoiding obstacles was a challenge for the bear. It constantly stepped on rocks, tripped over logs and crashed into trees, it didn't stop giving chase. In battle-frenzy, grizzly bears were a force to be reckoned with.

Nevicata:

 

She snorts slightly and listens carefully, hearing with a satisfaction that her apprentice is safe. 'Good job teachin the girl Nevi....' she mentally comments to herself before slinking in the bloody path of the bear. Watching from a distance she starts to grin more as she notices the Bear starting to weaken. "Excellent.... she should finish him off soon..." She lets out a sharp snarl as she smells the blood, getting anxious by the sense of victory. She leaps into a swift run, her long legs bringing her faster than her apprentice so she's running alongside them without being seen by the bear. Her stub of a tail throbs as it does when the victory howl starts to well up in her throat.

Finally at the river. Altair stopped and gazed at the giant expanse of water before her. She showed only a hint of tiredness, concealing most of her exhaustion. Compared to other wolves, her running distance was horribly sub-par, but her speed was beyond amazing. Though even Altair wouldn't really have been tired at the point she was in, she was bleeding, and had been near a sprint the entire time. Stepping forward, she felt moving water around her front paws, and stabilized her legs by shifting them onto larger, more stable rocks. Turning around to wait for the bear, she watched as it barreled towards her, not moving until the last second. When that moment came, she strafed around the bear, and made a flying leap onto the it's body, landing on the leg that Nevicata had already injured. The second she was on the bear, she was off. Using her landing spot as a springboard, she allowed the descent of her first jump to power her second, tipping the bear into the water.

 

Altair twisted in midair, dropping to the ground on a forepaw. The other front paw quickly followed, and the hind paws landed without a sound. Emotionlessly, she watched as the enraged bear scrabbled at the slick wet pebbles, slowly slipping deeper into the water. Though water should have been its domain, the battle had driven the grizzly into such a fury that it didn't care, or moreso, didn't notice. Bit by bit, the bear sank into the dark depths of the river, and it eventually arrived to a point where it could no longer keep its snout out of the water. Gently, the grizzly's body drifted down onto its paws, which were placed on the pebbly bottom of the river. When the weight of the bear's torso stopped moving, it was resting just below the water's surface, head under pass as if it were simply sleeping.

Nevicata comes silently up and nudges Altair's cheek with her nose. "Very well done Warrior. Where are you hurt?" She asks as she looks Altair over, her ears raised just in case the bear resurfaces. Before saying anything else she lets out a booming howl, her head leaning back. Her howl travels all the way back to the pack site, it's a howl of victory and of honor. Her melodic howl starts to slowly fade as she lowers her head to bow it in respect to the She-wolf. "I believe your ready to be moved up."
