The Dawnrunner Clan
On this page... (hide)
The Dawnrunner family originates from the Solbjorg Valley, where most of its members still reside. They are the ancestral enemies of the Stormbringers, and their ongoing family feud has lasted many generations and cost countless lives. They predominantly follow Norse culture and heritage, believing themselves to be descendants of Geri and Freki; Odin’s guardians (which contrasts the Stormbringer belief of having descended directly from Fenris, eldest child of Loki). They were led for many years by the fanatical Azrael Napthira Dawnrunner.
The families of Solbjorg are believed to hail from a single bloodline in Finland, having diverged over countless generations of settlement in Canada. Dawnrunner wolves classically sport a solid white or light-colored pelt with few markings, though their eye colors vary over a wide spectrum. Pure examples of this coloration include Legion, Bris, Shiloh, and Jack Frost; diluted examples include the pale blonds and greys seen in Sólieri, Elessari, Saul, Abigail, and Ninian.
Those Dawnrunner members who have come to 'Souls are typically trying to escape the zealotry and live a life of peace (though there is a looming threat of Dawnrunner invasion in Vinátta). Because of this, few carry the Dawnrunner name outside of the Valley, fearing they will be seen as violent or dangerous — that, or the circumstances of their birth were shameful, and they wish to start over in a place less familiar with the two prominent clans. This is particularly true of half-Dawnrunner, half-Stormbringer offspring, who have difficulty finding their place in either clan, and are likely to become targets of Azrael's purification campaign.
- Stormbringer — The long running family feud in the Solbjorg Valley pits Stormbringer and Dawnrunner against each other, but they have also interbred on several occasions. Draneia Stormbringer bore the children of Azrael Napthira Dawnrunner via rape, and raised them as Stormbringers. Abigail Dawnrunner mated with Dreyrugr Stormbringer behind enemy lines, and bore a litter of four.
- Soul, Sadira — Conor Soul and Bris Stormbringer had Eclipse Soulstorm in December 2010. Lilin Soulstorm and Saul Stormbringer had a litter of three in September 2012. Colibri Haki and Niernan Stormbringer had a litter of three in November 2013. Palaydrian Soul and Bran Stormbringer has a litter of four in August 2014. Though there is no blood relation, Gideon Stormbringer adopted Melee Soul and Range Soul. Shiloh Dawnbringer and Silvano Sadira had two litters, connecting the Sadira family.
- D'Angelo, Rhiannon, Eternity — Grace D'Angelo and Niernan Stormbringer had a litter of two in October 2012, creating a link to these families.
- Marino, Knight — Aro Marino and Eclipse Soulstorm had a miscarried litter; as they did not survive, the connection is lost. Shiloh Dawnbringer and Silvano Sadira had two litters, connecting the Marino family.
- Collins — Robert Frost Collins sired one child by Eclipse Soulstorm in January 2013.
- Nomads — While this family is largely considered a threat, Ascher Stormbringer followed in his father's footsteps and found love in the enemy camp. He sired a litter by Sequoia Exultare in November 2013.
