[AW] Departure of Ulilohi
#1
Hello, AniWaya! Sad news: Marit will be stepping down as a leader and leaving 'Souls. :( We bid her farewell and wish her the best! Thank you, Marit, for leading AniWaya for so long. <3

Claudius is announcing the news. I am assuming your character has already arrived when he starts talking.

Claudius was heavy-hearted, perhaps almost as much as Ulilohi certainly was. Although he wished things were different, he also understood how AniWaya and the Great Tribe worked. As much as he would have liked to see Ulilohi continue in AniWaya, he recognized that she had come to them from the Great Tribe as a messenger and that her true home lay far away. With Maska serving out his punishment in the Great Tribe and Claudius now having been a subleader in AniWaya for over a year, perhaps it was time for her to take her leave.

Claudius called for the tribesmembers to announce the news. Certainly, they would be sad – it was only natural – but he hoped that the news would bring some joy, too.

“A-AniWaya-ya-ya-yuns,” he began, clenching his fists behind his back. He stood on two legs in the middle of the village. “I huh-have suh-sad news: ou-our… c-c-c-Council…. luh-Leader, uh-Ulil-luh-luh-lohi… eh-Ehn… wuh-will be taking… her leave… t-t-t-to return… to the Great… Tribe,” he continued. “Shuh-she huh-has buh-been ruh-recalled… to them… knowing thuh-that she huh-has spent… t-t-t-time huh-here… luh-leading… us, thuh-they nuh-now…. need her… muh-more than we… so thuh-that shuh-she c-c-can ruh-resume her… place thuh-there as a c-c-c-Councillor. I shuh-shall… ruh-replace… her a-a-as c-c-c-Council… luh-Leader… and if… the t-t-time c-c-comes, I shuh-shall appoint… a ruh-Representative…. t-t-t-to take… my place… as the Digalawigi. U-until… then, I encourage… all of yuh-you t-t-to seek yuh-your muh-Master ruh-rank and juh-join muh-me in the c-c-c-Council of… Elders.” With that, he stepped aside to allow Ulilohi to make her speech.

She was sorry to be leaving them, but explained that it was something she had to do, and that as much as AniWaya was her home, she felt a duty to honour her family and return to the Great Tribe. She would be certain to tell their members of how wonderful AniWaya was, so hopefully, they might see new members making their way to AniWaya in the coming months or even years.

OOC: wish you the best, Marit! <3 (+300)




Domovoi stood awkwardly among the motley gathering, head and shoulders taller than most of the tribe. His plumed tail swayed behind him, and his fingers strayed to tug on the corner of his head scarf. He tucked a few curls underneath the bright fabric, and let his hand fall back to his side. He still felt like the outsider despite no longer being the newest member, and fidgeted impatiently while Claudius stammered. The news that a leader was leaving came as a surprise. Dom went still.

Theirs was a smaller pack, and it was a blow to lose anyone... He thought of the loners who'd troubled them, and briefly of Amorette. Pale eyes darted to the strong female wolf, and lingered as he felt a small pang of regret that the capable spearwoman would no longer help with protection. He had not established a relationship with Ulilohi during the season he had lived here, though, and so the undercurrent of sadness at the gathering did not affect him. Dom nodded in acknowledgment as she explained her reasons, and tightened his jaw.

He was Ayastigi, and he would work to pick up the slack and defend the borders, if only for peace of mind. It wasn't about rank or respect for him. He was adapting to life as a watchdog, he thought wryly, remembering his initial resistance to the ways of wolf packs. AniWaya's structure was not so strict, and so it had not chafed the gypsy-born sighthound. He came and went as he needed, slipping away when solitude suited him better. He was ignorant to the subtleties and rituals of tribe life, but he had not been shunned for his outsider status.

The wolfdog swallowed and shifted his weight from foot to foot, letting his gaze stray back to Claudius. It didn't matter to him how the leadership was organized. He wasn't going to leave this place until they forced him out.

Ocèane Aston
Lay me down on a bed of roses

When Océane had caught wind of the news, another hinge of hers had broken. She, her brothers, and Ulilohi were perhaps the last and only long-term AniWayans that still stood within the tribe. The dark leader and the Hineyu had not been extremely close, but she was one of the few standing friends the Aston could claim. Memories long forgotten seemed to arise, from her days in puppyhood and beyond. Ulilohi seemed to be a constant figure; a steady anchor. Her face was not scarce in her past, and Océane could only describe her as an extremely influential woman. From who else could she have gotten her habit of wearing blue jay feathers in her hair? From who else could she have learned the value of a being a strong-willed girl? The echo of her departure had felt like a very real, very damaging blow to the heart. As if her heart hadn’t been bruised enough.

At her brother’s call, Océane surfaced from her numb stupor and swiftly made her way to the meeting place. She was one of the last to arrive, and Claudius’s words began just as she made way into the gathering of tribes members. The Aston didn’t even have the capacity for her uncertain emotions to arise as she brushed by Domovoi or Olivia; though she did give a kind caress to her daughter as she passed, feeling a vague pang for Amorette. She made her way to the front, where she would stand, seafoam gaze bright as she listened to Ulilohi’s departing words. Certainly, she would be missed, but her return to the Great Tribe would bring blessings upon them as well. When her leader finished, Océane let the silence lapse, before she broke it. Donadagovi, Ulilohi. Was the farewell, murmured loud enough for all to hear, though she was only speaking to the Ayastigi.

[000] We'll miss you I wish you the best <3.


After being one of the first to arrive Fen was too used to these gatherings always bringing about some form of horrid news that he would regret hearing. First was the announcement of the fact that his work to repay a debt ended in death that the pup king ordered and now here was yet another thing that tore a cord of the Sage's heart. It was obvious that he was expecting bad news with his demeanor attempting to hold back any form of sadness towards the woman he had helped with writing and actually got along with oddly enough. he was friendly to the man even before he had joined and respected her for her strong willed nature. He looked around as the others piled in and soon he could see a familiar face and a fellow guard.


As he awkwardly adjusted his wool trench coat as he secured the belt closed and sealed off all holes with he appropriate button. Still attempting to keep his demeanor neutral he slicked his hair back once again giving him the scholar appearance. But alas he knew that someone would need to step up and assist and if he could he would attempt to move through the ranks quickly to join the council. He wanted to help his pack and he had an apprentice here there was no way in hell he could be removed from his home and he would seek to help out in every way possible. He will join him and hopefully assist his lord. These people were good and kind people none deserved such cruel news but alas the bright side was that At least she was going to a place where she would be happy. It always brought the man great sadness to see good people off. He was just glad Alicanto was out hunting so he wouldn't see him like this.


Fen bowed as a sign of respect and a proper good bye, he would miss the elder.

The day had been uneventful so far for Ibycus as he had gone for a walk in the woods and got a rabbit for a quick meal while walking. The a quick check on the stock after he had returned from his walk. He leaned on the fence and watched the horses slowly wander in the field munching grass while he pondered what he was going to do next. Every so often a random horse would look his way in hopes that he would have a carrot or other treat and then go back to grazing.


It was then that he had heard the call to meeting but he waited a few minutes before heading to the town center. Strange as it seemed, Ibycus did not like to be the first to arrive to meetings, parties, or other gatherings. He thought it a bit weird and thought that maybe it was from the time he had spent alone as he wandered the lands as a loner.


As was his nature, Ibycus stayed in the back where he was out of the way of those that had already arrived and those that arrived after he did. His blue eyes wandered over the crowd as it grew before settling on the leaders when they spoke.it made him sad to hear the news of Ulilohi leaving, but he would remember her.
