Species Spotlight: Werewolf

At the beginning, when werewolves first came into existence, there was only one tribe led by the Matriarch. She was the mother of their kind and had a mixed coat of grey, brown, white, and black. Her abilities were limitless compared to her children. She led benevolently over the one tribe for many moons before passing on. With her last breath, she imparted her wisdom upon her brethren, gifting each one of four necklaces that held a portion of her power. From there, the four tribes were born, and each tribe has held one of the treasures as their most sacred object  First is the tribe of Moon Claw with their fur of grey. They are renowned healers who can heal even the most critically wounded. Since healers are usually on the front lines of battle, they are also decent fighters. Their home is in Floresta in the forests of Baum. Another pack is the Howling Winter. As one can guess from the name, they are found in the snow-covered land of Pruina. They are masters of the silent kill and stealth, capable of blending into their surroundings with ease. Their coats are usually white in color but they can change the pigment of every strand of fur on their body. The next tribe would be the Pounce Paw tribe found in the desert land of Kasi. They are the quickest werewolves of all the tribes and are known for killing prey by sucking the very blood from the creature. One can usually tell by the three holes in the victim’s neck that it was a member of the Pounce Paw tribe. Some think that they may be a cross between vampire and werewolf due to their increased speed, nocturnal nature, and the way they kill. Anyways they have coats spotted with brown, black, and white patterns with long tails that they use to turn around corners. Most also have spines with spikes that shoot out to defend against attack. Finally, there is the clan that most despise. These are the Lunalpha tribe once found in the land of Éire before the Fang War. They are known as the most vicious clan who showed absolute no mercy in battle. Thus, another name they are known by are Lunatics. It is not too far off from the feeling of being in that beastly form from the accounts of those born into this tribe. Anger fuels how much power one of them can unleash. They have a coat of all black that strikes fear into the heart of their enemies. The reason why this tribe in particular is so hated is due in part to one individual, Mallupo. Part of the family of the chief, he used his power to quench his love of violence and mayhem. The Fang War would have ended a lot sooner if he had not killed a peace treaty group that had come to Éire to see the current leader of the Lunalpha tribe. They would never know about this fact until many moons later once the war had ended and the entirety of the Lunalpha tribe had been wiped out, or so it was thought.
