Umbra was a previous loner from April to August of 2008.
Childhood pack structure
Umbra grew up in the pack of Tertia Lunae, a small pack led entirely by its Alpha female, Aquila. There were rumours that she'd once had a "true love" and that the loss of that love was what caused her to refuse to accept any co-leader, but none would ever repeat that rumour where she could hear it.
The ranks consisted of Aquila Lunae, three Beta males, one Beta female (extra nurse and childminder) and the male Omega. And, of course, Aquila's pups, fathered by whoever caught her fancy at the time of conception.
Umbra was born to Aquila late in 2006, just half an hour before his sister Atra. Both of them taking after their mother in appearance, they were dark, and their mother named them according to her family traditions. Their father, Gabriel, was after all only a beta of the pack.
He had a happy childhood, but since his mother was the alpha of their small pack, he always felt the pressure of living up to her name. She'd done this and that at his age; why hadn't he done the same yet? That pressure intimidated him, and he left the pack a few months after his first birthday, setting out to either join another pack, or find other lone wolves and found a new one. Unfortunately, he didn't get that far before catastrophe struck, and he had to flee for his life together with everyone else.
So now he's in completely new territory, facing the same issues as before; find a pack to join, or start a new one.

Umbra is, as his name suggests, dark of fur. Black, even, apart from a small white spot on his chest and a few lighter shades on his sides. Like his mother before him, as well as all his siblings (except for little Silvius), he's large for his age, standing almost 34 inches (86cm) at the shoulders and weighing nearly a hundred pounds (~44kg). His eyes are the same colour as his mother's, and shine a bright amber yellow.
