Lucian mutters two strange phrases which seems to disperse the ever so terrible smell of burning human flesh and hair.

He then looks to the group, "Welcome back. Excellent choice."
 




____________
A man who appears to have very strong traits of pure breed of the Shadow Lords, if someone like the tribal Incarna got his colors wrong. (Pure Breed 5)

A beyond human good looking man with iridescent draconic eyes that seem to shift from gold through red and blue into silver depending on the lighting He has unusually sharp teeth. His long and well cared for silken hair holds the same coloring of his eyes.

Remarkably graceful and well balanced, clearly supernaturally so.
Most often well dressed in the highest craftsmanship of fine clothes and usually unarmed.
If one were to see him shirtless they might find vestigial scales not suited to defend anything of the same iridescent scale but starting in silver.
His only obvious "scars" are four light though distinct markings:
1) A not quite human shaped bite mark that left behind marks with pronounced canines on his left Levator Scapulae.
2) A glyph like marking as if made by almost human nails on his left side on the majority of his ribcage as if resting on his hip.
3) What might very well be a Bindrune on his right inner forearm.
4) A Valknut on tho front of his left thigh.
There is a something about him that has a raw primal appeal to women.

Sera finished her bowl rather quickly.  The arrival of a severed head puts a calculating look on her face.  When the girl spits in its face and throws it into the fire there is a moment of understanding.  Those that can see the subtle shifts in people will see a slight unease settle into her motions.
She rises from her seated position.
“Yiya-teh I made these so people could talk to each other where ever and whenever in the now they might find themselves.  A person need put think about who they wish to speak to and their corresponding stone will tug on the string.  That person can then choose to listen or deny the mental connection.”  She pauses a moment. “ There are 20 total, I have one, Lucian has one and I gave one to Brennus.  You know your people far better than I and who should have one versus who shouldn’t.  They are tied into the now.  So when it stops so do these and they do count as sympathy towards me.  So I would appreciate people being careful with them.  It also means I can use them to scry on people.”  Knowing that that would upset people she raises a calming hand.  “ My word that I will not do so unless bidden to by one of your people.  It’s use is that i can use the paths of the wind and sky to pull people to my location or others if asked.”
She than hands over all the remaining black raven feathers. “ these are seen as friends to my wards.  I’m not sure at this point who has one and who doesn’t.”
She looks towards Rex “ I picked up a canister of fuel for your bike.  It should be sitting right next to it.”
She seems about to continue rambling as she blinks and sways just a bit.  “ I have done far to much in no time at all. I’m gonna go to the house and take a nap.  Please excuse me.”
She starts walking back towards the house.

“Oh- is that so?” She says, sounding a bit overwhelmed. Where does one start with a statement like that.

The sudden appearance of the women has her turning toward them. The head carried causes a frown of confusion, as though it doesn’t quite register what it is.

When it does though, her face goes slightly grey and she swallows hard. Standing abruptly, “Umm... if you will excuse me ...” and then stepping away from the log and those gathered she paces toward the edge of the clearing and the covering of trees.

Lucian stands up and looks the group over, "I'm headed back to the temple. After that I will be working on anything I intend to get done privately. Once that is accomplished I hope we can deal with our interests, issues, and then get the hell back into a proper flow of time?" After waiting long enough for recognition, Lucian starts to walk off.

Backlash set his empty bowl aside after consuming a Fenrir's worth of soup. Clearing his throat, he bows to Yiyateh before clearing his throat to speak.

"Alright, everyone. Time might be paused, but the War isn't. Tell me, what do each of you need? Weapons, armor, materials; make me a list and I'll get to work. Training supplies and equipment for your kin are also valid. If you are skilled in crafting and would be willing to assist, I welcome your aid and ask what tools and products you need. If you seek tutelage on a subject I know, I will share what I can if you choose to ask."

Eve blinks at Brennus, and then sighs, a half-smile playing on her lips. "Captain," she stage-whispers to her husband, "The boys didn't want me to tell you, but I figured you'd want to know before you found out the hard way - it seems we've run aground in a bit of a land-locked area, almost like as how we've not got a ship at all. God's teeth, but it's true, on me honor I swear it!" She then wanders over to Backlash to deliver her list of needs for her family and her pack.

Her hate is as fierce as her devotion is grand and there is no middle ground on which she will stand.
She’s wild and she’s gentle, she is good and she’s bad. She’s proud and she’s humble, she’s happy and sad.
She’s in love with the ocean, the earth and the skies,she is enamored with beauty- wherever it lies.
She’s victor, she’s victim, a star and a clod… but mostly she’s Irish, in love with her God.

When Eve says 'how we've not got a ship at all' Brennus pales to a sickly gray, letting out a huff of breath like he'd gotten hit in the gut.

"Yeah, uh, argh ye mateys. Water and stuff."

He turns, taking a few steps toward Caroline and Rex before it registers they are before him. In a daze, Brennus looks around for something that isn't quite there.  

"I, uh, need to find something. Excuse me."

Wings flare and he flies off.

Syd kind of blinks at the severed head in the fire, actually watching it for a few momentts. There is no shock in horror from the young Glass Walker, just the surprise of it happening. She sighs and shakes her head, it seems mostly at herself before she starts to wander off to think unless someone stops her.

A long while later, the form of Mackenzie can be seen standing and stepping out from where she had slid down a tree trunk into a seated position after fleeing the clearing and the burning head. After turning in place a few times, starting and stopping, she finally paces back toward the log.

For any who are still left, they can see the strain of clenched teeth and the carefully fixed gaze away from the fire. Reaching the log she strips out of Lucian’s shirt and lays it open next to the stack of art supplies, bead string and feather. Gingerly, with just her fingertips she lifts everything and sets it down in the open shirt. A few twists, a few tucks, and a knot later and the shirt is converted into a rough temporary sling for the items.

Straightening, she lifts the sling and it’s contained items, “I’m uh... going to go stretch my legs a bit if that is ok” she says hurriedly. But before waiting for an answer she turns and retreats away again to the trees.

Her shadowed form can just barely be seen wandering through the trees. Caught between distancing herself further and not wanting to loose the safety of the firelight.

Eibhlín watched Mackenzie go off with a frown, and when she came back and gathered her things, the kinfolk nodded to herself, and went to retrieve her babes from the Black Fury and her sister. Settling the children in their slings so she could carry them both easily, she set off into the woods after Mackenzie, making far and away more noise than she normally might so as not to scare the girl with her approach.

Sera face shifts into a curious smile.  “Oh? That’s my favorite kind of information.”  She says with a wink clearly indicating sarcasm.  The entire thing is accompanied by a sigh.  She settles down next to yiya-teh.  She seems to wait with a patience that is both curious and preparedness.  There is some fear in her but not as much as one would suspect, almost as if she has had to hear odd things about herself before.

Yiya-teh nods. "Well, there's not really an easy way to start, Feather Heart. You're kin. Related to us Garou in a spiritual and physical way. Inextricably connected to us, our faults, our problems, our choices, and our lives.  In fact, you're kin to two of our tribes. The silver fangs, who were meant to be nobility, and the Uktena, my tribe, one of the two Native American tribes to survive this long."

She pauses, and then shrugs. "It's probably easier to approach it this way: Do you have any questions?"

“Huh.  Normally I’d say that the great spirits teach us that we are all related and can trace our lineage to first man.” She shakes her head. “What does it mean to be kin to your people?  Let me refine that.  Clearly all of you have a spiritual connection though not all of you like Rex and Eve.  Your elders lead, but how does that work?  The dreamspeakers measure worth by how well one works with humanity and spirits and bringing the two back into harmony as well raw knowledge.  And how/ where do I fit in to all this?”

"Good questions, all of them. From the beginning, then: It means many things to be kin to our kind. You could ask as many kin or Garou that question as you please, and you're likely to get more answers than you have people to ask. But there are some universal truths. Being our kin, means the war will come to your doorstep again and again. It means the enemy will be out there, and it will eventually find you. You look the part of one of us, which, to those in the know, paints you forever a target. Being our kin, means that at least those of us here, will fight tooth and claw to see that you never come to harm, and should we fail, to see you healed and made well again. Being our kin means that sometimes we may have to ask great tasks of you. We. Are. Not. Human.  You are. This is a divide that only some rare number among us can bridge. The rest of us, we must rely on our kin to be our outreach to humanity. Being our kin means we need you far more than you need us. You are our connection to our human side. Our anchor that reminds us what we fight for, and why. You are our mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters. Being our kin means we can turn to you when we seek a mate - as to do so among our own is forbidden, and yields only deformed offspring who cannot continue our line as they are barren."

The Elder pauses in thought. "We, the Garou, are not all just connected to the spirits. We are spirits, given material forms. Spirits-made-flesh as we say. Some of our kin, like Eve, and that young girl you helped me aid, are blessed to have a spiritual connection, however. And others, like Rex and Mackenzie, are not."

Yiya-teh frowns. "You ask how our Elders leading works, but I am not sure I understand the question. Could you elaborate? I want to answer you in a way that actually helps. And, well, as for where you fit in? That remains to be seen, and many things will weigh into that, not least of all your own preferences - though not necessarily most of all, either."

“You clearly have a structure and some of the words you use are different.  You have a war.”  She pauses and shakes her head.  She closes her eyes and sighs.  “ I know you are not human. War is not unknown to me. Which one is your people’s? “
“Forgive me, my thoughts are a jumble and I finally understand a piece of my puzzle. what are the rules that govern a people I share Kinship to?”  She looks Yiya-teh in the eyes with her last question.  It is clear that she is struggling.

Yiya-teh closes her eyes and takes a long, slow, meditative breath. "Structure. Yes. Well, we're an instinct driven people. For most, respecting rank and position is as simple and natural as breathing. We've five ranks among us usually, though there are those outside of the system at the top and bottom. Cliath, Fostern, Adren, Athro and Elder are the ranks, with kinfolk and cubs below that outline, and legends - living myths - above it. Rank is earned through experience, duty, and challenge to prove worth and willingness. There are also many stations that perform necessary function and which may outweigh rank at any given moment, depending on circumstances. For instance, a low ranked shaman might outweigh a higher ranked judge, in some cases, when it comes to spirit matters. And our duties within the greater whole of the nation are decided by the phase of Luna at the instant of our birth. There are five of these, too. No moon who serve as tricksters, scouts, teachers and questioners. Crescent moon who serve as priests, shamans, healers, and medicine men. Half moon who serve as judges, tradition keepers, and pillars of honor. Gibbous moon, who are lore masters, tale-spinners, historians and archivists, and full moons who are warriors, tacticians, and battle commanders. Half moons and full moons, philodox and ahroun as we call them, most often serve as our leaders, chiefs, first among equals and alphas. There are a dozen more layers of intricacies here in regard to structure, leadership, and function, but those are some of the very very basics."

The elder sighs. "Our war is... both very simple and rather complex. In the end, we are fighting the twisted evil of the forces of the corrupted Wyrm that strangle our Mother Gaia and Her workings here on Her world-body as well as elsewhere within the cosmos. I believe that a friend of mine once said that the... Nephandi? I believe? were one evidence that you might understand as the Wyrm's blighted touch upon your people."

She then frowns. "As for laws that govern us... those come in three forms. First, the Creeds of Glory, Honor and Wisdom, oaths we all swear upon during our Rite of Passage. Next, the Litany, the thirteen laws that are most often considered inviolate - in older times, we might have called a death sentence upon any violation of any of those tenets, though in more recent times, we simply haven't the luxury of holding so ardently to those stances, given our dwindling numbers. And finally, there are traditions, which are as important as law in many cases, superseding it in some. The first two are easy enough to break down, though the traditions are a lifetime or two's worth of study to fully understand. Where would you like me to start?"
