ooc; sol will no longer be posting in this thread. leadership please! :)

The pair had travelled throughout 'Souls for a month, stopping to talk to loners and gather information on packs. While they didn't make contact with each pack directly, they watched and observed and had finally come to their decision. Luna had suggested Aniwaya, a pack that seemed to be based on spirituality. It had suited them both, and the pack had seemed simple as well. From what the siblings knew it was a pack low in membership, so it was likely they could be private if needed. They had spent a few days walking from the north end of 'Souls to the southend, taking their time and paying attention to their surroundings. Now they were nearing the borders of the pack they wished to choose.

" Are you ready? "
She called in a sing-song voice behind her, ears flicking back to make sure Soleil still followed. Chester chattered nervously on her shoulder, not quite convinced that he would be safe in such a large gathering of Luperci. Sure, they were all nervous but with winter coming up this seemed to be the best choice. With the low member count, Luna was sure they wouldn't be turned away. " What do you think? " Luna asked Soleil, still focusing her gaze forward. Her gut was tight with anxiety, but she was also excited for the trio.

Sol followed quietly, looking and keeping track of their surroundings. He wasn't near as ecstatic as his dear sister, but he would follow her anywhere. They had settled into living around each other easily, and rarely squabbled. Both had gained weight since meeting, two wolves hunting made for better dinners and now they were healthy and looked to both be in their prime. Soleil was magnificent for sure, with deep brown splotches on his coat and clear turquoise eyes. He was muscular and tall, and had several inches on Luna now - much to her distaste. He was her ' big ' little brother, and she would never let him forget it.

Sol had now become a proficient hunter and Luna had taken to crafting, she enjoyed carving wooden things and as of now was working on a staff. It was crud and rudimentary, but he could tell his sister was proud of her slow progress and over the few months more swirls and other designs had slowly been carved in. Another year and he was sure that she would excel even more. His large slightly-dish shaped ears perked forward as she sang back to him, and he grunted and nodded in response. Though both had become more social, Luna definitely spoke more. " We havn't really been this far south yet, are you sure we are in the right place? " He asked, his voice deep and rumbling. Luna turned back and scoffed right in his face after crossing her eyes and cocking her hip. " Obviously, can't you smelled them? " She snapped back, then chuckled. " You are just nervous. We are almost there. " With that, the slim but curvy woman turned back around and bounded ahead, her squirrel going quiet and clutching her white hair to retain his balance. Sol grumbled and rolled his eyes, but moved into a quick trot to keep pace with his smaller sister.

They came upon the borders suddenly, and Luna wasted no time in howling out - her voice high pitched and loud. Sol joined in after a few moments, his howl much deeper and masculine. " Hopefully someone comes soon. " Sol grumbled, moving a foot in the dirt.

Welcome! I'll title Luna and Sol for Craftsman and Hunter ranks, if it needs changing feel free to say! 300+


With all the excitement across the way at Anathema, it was hard to focus on her responsibilities back at home. Every so often, she went away from the ceremony and celebration of the northern pack to return to her tribe where it was left almost like a ghost town. It was an eerie feeling at times, but it was good to keep the borders well patrolled since their few scouts were inexperienced at the task. Olivia was glad for the task and she liked being the first face that new comers met. She was young and bold, and never fettered by rough features or personalities.


So, as she ran, she caught wind of a scent and with bright eyes she modified her route to go towards the new smell.s A smile grew on her face at the prospect of meeting more canines. She made herself shift as well, many considered optime the more sophisticated form and she didn't want to appear out of touch even if she preferred the lupus form considerably. It slowed her path but soon she could see a pair of canines at her borders and she readily revealed herself to them.


They looked young and strong, willing participate in the world around there. Olivia gave them an bright, indulgent smile. "Welcome to AniWaya!" She said, keeping to her side and examining their movements just to be safe. Though she was happy to see canines at her border, she had had enough of conflict not to be so trusting of those that just come wandering to the little tribe. Though she couldn't smell other canines on their fur, her silver green eyes swept her surroundings occasionally. "What brings you here?" She asked, sweeping her hair to the side of her tawny face.

The siblings didn’t have to wait for long, soon a new scent came rushing through the trees and they could hear the sound of approaching footsteps through the crunch of foliage. It was clear that they had been heard and whomever was coming to greet them didn’t care to hide their appearance, for a lovely smile cut through the trees and they were greeted warmly by a young wolf, perhaps a few months younger than Luna and Soliel.

Luna was the first to extend a clawed hand in greeting. “ Hello! My name is Luna. This is my brother, Soleil. “ She replied and turned slightly to gesture at her brother.

Sol smiled a little, and extended his large hand for shaking as well. “ Pleased to make your acquaintance.” He attempted to look more friendly, but didn’t seem to appear less grumpy. Luna raised an eyebrow and turned back to the wolfess before them. “ We’ve come to request admittance to your pack. We’ve heard a lot about Aniwaya from loners in the area, and it seemed to fit us well. “ Here Sol stepped forward some and drew the attention back to him. “ Yes. We are both young and strong, and loyal. She is a craftsperson, carving wood and I am a strong hunter. I’m sure we would make an asset to your pack. “ He spoke simply, confident that the pair would be accepted.

Both could be molded still, and serve Aniwaya in other ways if needed. Luna loved learning about new things and himself was a more hands on type, he could help out with building repairs and building and such things. He preferred to work on something constantly. “ What may we call you? “ Luna asked politely, tail wagging gently behind her.

OOC 300+


Olivia looked at them with bright eyes, fascinated as they both introduced themselves. They did indeed look strong and seemed to have things to offer to the tribe. The tawny she-wolf was of course very interested in them and took the hand that was offered and shook it brightly. If the young leader was anything, she was radiant with the personality that rolled off of her in droves There was hardly a face she didn't smile at.


"Welcome, Luna," She said and turned her eyes to the male. "And welcome, Soleil. You've come to the right place then, I can see that you would excellent additions to the tribe." Those of the tribe were a peaceful kind, only fighting to defend themselves. Unfortunately, their limits had been tested only weeks before and some still bore wounds from conflict and were on edge. But things had calmed considerably and two of the loners had even come to AniWaya with peaceful intentions.


She blinked once and nodded energetically, "I apologize! I'm Olivia Tarasova, the Digalawigi, or representative for the tribe. I patrol the borders a lot and make good impressions, I suppose." She smiled again, bowing her head slightly. "And from what I hear, you two have a lot to offer us and I would be more than happy to accept you within our ranks. We are small, but our few are good and strong." The numbers had gone up some in the past weeks, but they were still one of the smaller packs in the territory but Olivia didn't allow that to bother her.


"Please, cross over the border if you truly think this should be your home, I can give you a look around." She smiled, taking a step back to allow them some space.

Olivia greeted them both and accepted them quickly. Luna was slightly surprised, but a large grin broke out of her and her brothers face. Both tails began wagging, though Luna’s bobtail didn’t make much movement due to the lack of length. “ It’s so nice to meet you Olivia, the size of the pack suits us perfectly. We are a mostly private pair, but we look forward to getting to know the rest of the tribe. “ Luna stated cheerily. Soliel was somewhat surprised at his sisters behavior, usually she wasn’t this forward and talkative. His ears flicked back briefly, in a considering manner. He felt sort of bad, not noticing his dear sisters apparent loneliness. Either she was putting on a facade to appear nicer, or she had really been this lonely and was actually excited to be around other wolves. He snorted softly, and began to step forward in order to follow Luna and Olivia.

Luna nodded to Olivia as she invited them onto the tribes land, and both siblings stepped over the border. “ That would be great. “ She replied to her new leaders question, smiling easily. “ Is there housing around, or do you guys reside in dens in the ground? “ The moonlit youth asked somewhat nervously, neither of the two siblings had lived in a dwelling of any sort besides sleeping on cave floors on their way here. The wolfess new that a lot of the humanized packs preferred to live in the dwellings, and she wasn’t sure how she would adjust to that sort of life. The twins both had spent most of their lives underground and both felt nervous.

OOC 300+


Olivia was so excited just to have a pair of friendly faces around that she beckoned them over quickly enough. Membership was important to the tribe and they seemed ready to work among them. It would be interesting seeing them fit into the already present dichotomy of the tribe, but they were accepting and understanding and tried to be thoughtful. Olivia could think of a few that did not perfectly emulate, the spiritualistic and kind nature of the tribe. Her father was one of them but Domoivoi had changed many of his ways to fit into the mold of the tribe and keep his daughter safe.


"Excellent, I'm glad to hear it. I haven't a doubt that the tribe will be curious to meet you as well. We've come all over the place, at least Canada, your experiences will be a good thing to add to our bunch." She smiled again, beckoning them to follow her as she began walking upon the familiar trees of her tribe. There was a wild aspect to this part of the territory, but as they moved further in the marks of agriculture began to stand out. "We build huts in town that many live in, dens are always an option but I've found the huts to be more spacious that any little dirt cave."


She pointed out the town as they rose to the peak of a hill. It was nestled among the trees and undergrowth, small with a clearing in the center where a controlled fire roared. "That's home down there. Probably one of my favorite places and definitely where the action happens. The surrounding area is traditional farming, mostly for our livestock that are caroled among trees and pasture." Their farming methods were very traditional, hoping not to impact the land much and since they were such a small community they had no need for massive farms.
