'''Tribal Totems'''

!!Winter Wolf (Skolis-Ur)

Tribal totem of the Storm Lords, Winter Wolf is the second of Father Wolf's children and alpha of the Forsaken pack, and led them into the world after the death of Father Wolf and the loss of Pangaea. A remote, disapproving figure, he demands total loyalty and respect from his followers.
* AloofBigBrother: To his followers.
* AnIcePerson
* BigBrotherMentor: To Red Wolf.
* CainAndAbel: He and Silver Wolf have an intense rivalry over leadership of the First Pack. Winter Wolf would appear to be winning.
* TheChainsOfCommanding: Feels the responsibility of leading the Forsaken, and does not believe he can show any weakness before the others.
* TheLeader
* NumberTwo: Was once the Beta to Dire Wolf's Alpha, but no more.
* PetTheDog: Lets his icy demeanour slip with Red Wolf.
* UndyingLoyalty: Demands it from his followers.

!!Red Wolf (Sagrim-Ur)

The tribal totem of the Iron Masters, Red Wolf once watched over the human herds. Inquisitive and driven, he often frustrates his siblings with his need to ''know''. He is close to both Winter Wolf and Death Wolf.
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Once played this role to the rest of the First Pack.
* CainAndAbel: Has a rather agonising relationship with Rabid Wolf.
* GoodTwin: To Rabid Wolf.
* MoralityPet: To Winter Wolf and Death Wolf.
* MotherNatureFatherScience: Father Science to Black Wolf's Mother Nature. Unlike most examples, they get along pretty well.
* TheSmartGuy
* TricksterArchetype: He's called "kin to Coyote" for a reason. He also rewards this kind of thinking.

!!Death Wolf (Kamduis-Ur)

Quiet and withdrawn, Death Wolf is the tribal totem of the Bone Shadows. She has always walked her own path, and is fascinated with notions of life and death.
* DontFearTheReaper
* LonersAreFreaks: The opinion of some of her siblings.
* PetTheDog: With Red Wolf, according to some.
* TheQuietOne

!!Black Wolf (Hikaon-Ur)

Tribal totem of the Hunters in Darkness, Black Wolf is a creature of the night, and the best tracker among the First Pack. Once close to Dire Wolf, Black Wolf is the exact opposite of her brother Destroyer Wolf, and has a curious respect for Red Wolf.
* CainAndAbel: Hates Rabid Wolf with an undying passion.
* EvilFormerFriend: How she sees Dire Wolf.
* MotherNatureFatherScience: Mother Nature to Red Wolf's Father Science. Again, mutually respect each other due to similar motives.
* ScarilyCompetentTracker
* SiblingYinYang: With Destroyer Wolf.

!!Destroyer Wolf (Fenris-Ur)

The tribal totem of the Blood Talons, Destroyer Wolf revels in violence and combat, often tearing his prey to shreds before devouring it. While extremely aggressive, he is no sadist, and respects a worthy adversary.
* TheBigGuy
* BloodKnight
* CainAndAbel: Despises the sadistic Dire Wolf for marring the purity of combat with malice.
* CombatPragmatist: His vow of "Offer no surrender you would not accept" is a code of ''personal'' honor. Anything that works is fair game to him, so long as you're not a hypocrite about it.
* HotBlooded
* LaserGuidedKarma: A story in the 2E core features a group of corrupt Blood Talons who had taken over a town and had transformed it into a CannibalCult. Destroyer Wolf found out. That town [[ApocalypseWow no longer exists]], especially not its rulers.
* SiblingYinYang: With Black Wolf.
* UnstoppableRage
* WorthyOpponent: Always on the look out for one.


[[folder:The Pure]]

'''Tribal Totems'''

!!Dire Wolf (Huzuruth-Ur)

Tribal totem of the Predator Kings, Dire Wolf is the oldest and most malicious of Father Wolf's children. He mourns the loss of Pangaea, the predator's paradise, and longs to bring it back.
* TheBrute: Falls into this role by choice. He could be the Pure Alpha if he so chose.
* CainAndAbel: With Destroyer Wolf.
* CanisMajor: The biggest after Father Wolf himself. He resembles one of the Dire Wolves that once stalked the mortal world.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Dire Wolf and the Predator Kings don't like the Forsaken, but they find the Bale Hounds totally revolting, and will take any chance to kill them and urinate on their corpses.
* EvilFormerFriend: Was once close to Black Wolf, acting as a sort of mentor figure.
* TheLeader: Was once the Alpha of the First Pack. Now he mostly keeps to himself.
* MightMakesRight
* SocialDarwinist: Believes that only the strong can survive, and that if you are weak, you deserve to die.
* SuperPersistentPredator
* WorthyOpponent: He and his followers are the most likely to see the Forsaken this way.

!!Rabid Wolf (Gurim-Ur)

The youngest and maddest of Father Wolf's children, Rabid Wolf is a slavering coward who serves as the tribal totem of the Fire-Touched. Crazed with fear and paranoia, and stricken with disease, he grants his followers visions in exchange for their services.

...[[UnreliableNarrator According to the Forsaken, at least]]. According to the Pure, it's mostly accurate, but he isn't actually a coward so much as [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere reluctant to involve himself in confrontations he knows he can't win]], being a peerless {{Seer}}. The Fire-Touched say his various illnesses are simply a spiritual, literal representation of his piousness (faith is similar to a contagion after all), while his madness is a result of being aware of [[GoMadFromTheRevelation every single lie in the world]]. He is the kindest of the Pure tribe totems, and is quite supportive of granting mercy to the Forsaken...[[DarkMessiah if they convert to the Pure]].
* AxCrazy
* CainAndAbel: Red Wolf, Black Wolf, and Death Wolf all find him completely disgusting.
* CannotTellALie: According to the Fire-Touched anyway.
* DirtyCoward[=/=]LovableCoward: Forsaken believe he's the former, Pure the latter.
* EvilGenius
* EvilIsVisceral
* EvilTwin: To Red Wolf
* TheFundamentalist
* GigglingVillain: Purported to cackle like a hyena after killing his victims.
* MadOracle: Grants his followers visions, and possesses prophecy himself-[[GoMadFromTheRevelation to his detriment]].
* {{Plaguemaster}}
* WellDoneSonGuy: Was once like this towards both Father Wolf and Dire Wolf.

!!Silver Wolf (Hathis-Ur)

Kingly in aspect, Silver Wolf believes he should have been the alpha of the First Pack. He serves as the tribal totem of the Ivory Claws, and his followers often provide the Pure with leadership.
* BigBad: To the Pure as a whole, though just barely.
* CainAndAbel: Has a longstanding rivalry with Winter Wolf, who is everything that Silver Wolf fancies himself to be.
* TheEvilPrince
* TheLeader: Of the Pure. This is largely because Rabid Wolf is mad and Dire Wolf does not care.
* ManipulativeBastard
* {{Pride}}: Easily his greatest sin.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Has a very high opinion of himself, believing he is a greater leader then Father Wolf or Winter Wolf, and imagining that he is the leader of the Pure. In truth he is but a shadow of his father and older sibling, and only leads the Pure because Dire Wolf isn't interested.
* TheStarscream: Tried to seize power from Father Wolf in a coup d'etat and was humiliated in the process.


[[folder:The Bale Hounds]]

'''Tribal Totems'''

!!Soulless Wolf (Viruhk-Ur)

Also known as the "Eyes of the Maeljin", Soulless Wolf purports to be Father Wolf's ninth offspring, and claims to have allied with the Maeljin when he saw the way the wind was blowing. Whether he is telling the truth, and whether he is the totem of the Bale Hounds, or simply acts as a messenger for the Maeljin, is up to the storyteller's discretion.
* BadBoss: Bale Hounds who fail him don't last long.
* BlackEyesOfEvil: Has dead, black, sharklike eyes that never move.
* {{Black Sheep}}: Regarded as such by both sets of (possible) siblings, and proclaims himself as such.
* CainAndAbel: With both the Pure and the Forsaken totems, who took a vow never to speak his name again.
* CardCarryingVillain: Seems quite self-aware about his own, and the Maeljin's, role in the overall plot. He also doesn't seem to care.
* DealWithTheDevil: Has some sort of arrangement with the Maeljin.
* DragonInChief: He's not the BigBad of the Bale Hounds, but both players and the Hounds themselves are much more likely to encounter him then they are the Maeljin themselves.
* LonersAreFreaks: Left the First Pack very early on.
* MouthOfSauron: Acts as the eyes and voice of the Maeljin in the world.
* MultipleChoicePast: Several options are presented for Soulless Wolf's origins.
* TheSoulless: Likely, given his name.
* TheStoic
* {{Turncoat}}: Ran out on the First Pack long before the Pure/Forsaken rift.
* YouHaveFailedMe


[[folder: The Idigam]]

Ancient, alien spirits of concepts which never were, never existed, or never codified, depending on who you ask. Some say they aren't actually spirits, either, though they're certainly close ''enough'' to be called them. {{Mad God}}s to a spirit, the idigam's experiments and hungers posed a grave danger to Pangaea, made as they were with either no care for the order of things or contempt for it, so it naturally fell to Father Wolf to hunt them. Unfortunately, the idigam soon proved more cunning prey; their defining trait is their [[AdaptiveAbility endless evolution]], each form an idigam takes simply being a transitional state to something grander and more terrifying. Any attempt to destroy them was countered, any trap was disarmed, any victory undone. In desperation, Father Wolf turned to Luna for help, and she took them [[SealedEvilInACan unto her physical self]], leaving only the ones who he never saw due to their relative lack of hostility on Earth.

On the moon, the majority of the idigam licked their wounds and sulked. A few learned to call the spirits of stellar phenomena, a few reflected on how they were finally defeated and [[CharacterDevelopment changed]]. But they could not reach Earth, the gap of space plus Luna's own guarding against space-born threats prevented that.

[[UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom The Apollo missions?]] [[OhCrap Not so much.]]

The idigam have returned, still furious over their humiliation and millenna of imprisonment. So new a threat that the Forsaken have no method for hunting them, so old as to have matched wits with the greatest of hunters and come out ahead, the idigam combine the adaptability of werewolves, the might of spirits, the strangeness of the Hosts, the intellect of humans, and the unpredictability of the Claimed into singular beasts, and due to their skill with [[MadScientist Shaping Essence]], they can command or create all of the above given the time and motive. They still despise Father Wolf, all of them, but he cannot feel their fury, since he is dead.

So, they've focused their rage on the [[RevengeByProxy next best thing]]-his descendants.
