In summer of 2002, a whole bunch of coyotes, some refugees from a nearby forest fire and some random travelers, begin to show up at Bleeding Souls. The coyotes show up and cause a whole bunch of trouble for people for a while, found Inferni, cause some more trouble, and eventually things calm down.
- Key Coyotes: Yasu Zarah, Kaena Lykoi, RiotYote, Kesho Maisha, Mars
- Groups: Inferni, Clouded Tears, Storm, Jaded Shadows
- Kaena Lykoi and Aisha fight. Aisha calls Kaena a "half wolf" and Kae goes "Oh no she didn't!" in a lot more words. The two fight to a draw. 
- Kaena Lykoi trespasses and hunts on Clouded Tears territory. She is confronted by Ravyn Stormbringer and Kiriska. The trio fight, and Kaena is inches away from death when Nirupama Rashmi, alpha of Clouded Tears, swoops in to save her, henceforth barring the coyote forever from the packlands. 
- Blitzaugen of Silent Dawn meanders through the woods. Coyote Kesho Maisha shows up on the scene and starts to be a total creeper, lying to Blitz about his name and so forth. Shortly afterward, Yasu Zarah also arrives, though she chooses to taunt the wolf, daring him to attack her despite her wounded condition. Kesho manages to convince Blitz otherwise, and the wolf even goes so far as to offer Zarah medical help. RiotYote also shows up, along with another wolf, but the party disperses before any serious trouble occurs. However, this marks the point where the coyotes—especially Zarah and RiotYote, who served in a clan together prior to re-encountering one another in Bleeding Souls—realize they aren't alone, and the beginnings of Inferni are here. 
- Kaena Lykoi pretends to be the alpha of the territory, and then kills Aquiliak, a Jaded Shadows wolf, on Storm territory and then consumes some of the corpse. Later, the body is found by Stormy Blackwolf, who is extremely troubled by the strange scent on her land as well as the body. MATURE: 
- Stormy Blackwolf heads to Jaded Shadows with her beta wolf, Taaktuq Piqaluyak to inform the leadership of what transpired a few days earlier with Aquiliak. I believe they meet with Mordulin and Salvaged Eternity They aren't met very well, but this never escalates into any real conflict since the packs are really far away and a war across all of 'Souls territory would have been extremely impractical. 
- Inferni is formed by Yasu Zarah and Kaena Lykoi. They notice the apparent number of coyotes in the land, and discuss things. The pair of coyotes had previously served together in the Darklands Clan in their previous homeland, and they wished to rekindle the flame of their former group, so to speak. Kesho Maisha, RiotYote, Eclipse, and Mune are in attendance. 
- Kaena Lykoi fights Beneremut, a freaking deer. Okay, so this isn't really relative to the coyote invasion 'cause it's a deer, but still, come on. This thread is win. >_> 
- Mars rapes Ceres Sadira of Clouded Tears, resulting in her subsequent pregnancy. Mars wasn't really involved with the other coyotes, he was way more of a loner, but this is still coyote-drama from the same era, so it counts!
- There is an altercation involving a few wolves and coyotes in the Crystal Caverns. Shadowfax and Blitzaugen are attacked by Kesho Maisha and RiotYote. 
- There's really no culmination point or end for this plot; the coyotes settle down in Inferni and they're dealing with their own problems—a lack of interest, deaths, and personal tragedies plague some of the members, so after a while they're not so interested in going out and screwing with everyone else.
