Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Hawthorne Heights

Trust issues

A Black Spiral Waltz.

It was a happy group of young wolves who got together the morning after the raid on the den. Riding high on ideas of success; it was a sobering moment when they found themselves facing an angry and aggressive Erin and council.

A tense and disagreeable council shamed the packs, aggressive and terse. Their accomplishments were considered unimportant due to the oversight of not having called the alpha of the rural pack, who had come to the residence uninformed of their actions and without explanation regardless.

The packs were dismissed from the council’s presence until later.

As rumors of distrust and occasional covertly worded accusations were placed at Erin’s feet, no one was in spirit or unity for anything more. However, with the prompting of Morrison, the group came together a day later to perform some trust and team building exercises. Both of the young packs, except one Glass Walker called away for another task, arrived mid-morning to Morrison’s preparations.

After a short time, Erin and Morrison stepped aside to speak privately. The cubs were left to themselves to perform the first trust exercise. Before they could puzzle out what the rope was for, or why it was hung about at seemingly random, shots rang out in the distance.

His attempts to calm and stop the fight succeeded only after several combatants were rendered unconscious. Afterwards, they went their separate ways, the Urban pack and one rural with Morrison and the only conscious Rural pack member left behind sitting on his packmate, keeping her… subdued.

After their departure, it is learned, that the Spirit of Erin (no less calm for her brief time among the departed) explains the situation. Her back-up killed during the arrest of Morrison, his status as a Black Spiral Dancer. His treason, against Sept and Gaia.

Their Theurge Freya, however, found herself blinded by Morrison’s treason in the Umbra. Only the intervention of the spirit Pegasus on behalf of her sept leader saved her life and vision.

Reunited, trust frail if not broken, they reported in and were again chastised for their actions and inactions.

The others, however, returned with Morrison to a place they did not recognize, in a ranch home on the edge of town. There, Morrison hopes, they’ll learn the steps of…
