The del Bosque coyotes are one of the largest families in Ceniza Valley -- due to the number of coyotes "adopted" into the family rather than any indication of their fecundity. These coyotes are tricksters and traditionalists -- and showy ones, producing some of the best fire dancers in the community. While they care greatly about the community's ideals (never is one seen without ash on their fur or in the same form each day), they seem to care a little more about popularity and fun than the future, but make great shamans, storytellers, and culture-keepers.

Led by Laurel and Diego del Bosque, a band of coyotes from Ceniza Valley came to settle in 'Souls in 2016. [note about 'souls del bosques here]

1.  Culture and Influences

1.1  Adoption

In Ceniza Valley, few coyotes differentiate between relatives and non-blood "family." An individual's family can consist of anyone from brothers, aunts, and cousins to the coyotes who babysat them, their best friends, and stragglers adopted into the group. It's considered an honor to be invited into a family, especially as a former lone coyote, and it's not uncommon for a coyote to join another family and adopt their surname in the event they feel closer to them than their birth family.

The del Bosque "family" of coyotes is particularly well-known for adopting lone coyotes into the fold. There is no cultural differentiation between an adopted del Bosque and a born one; as such, both are included in the genealogy.

1.2  Influences


Rivera, Espinoza: Two of the other significant coyote families of Ceniza Valley. In addition to blood connections, due to the culture in the Valley, a member of one family might "join" another and take on their surname if they feel a stronger connection to companions in that family.


Del Cenere Gang: Nazario del Bosque was a founding leader of the gang, bringing with him some Cenizan and Infernian traditions.

Inferni: A band of traveling Cenizans (including Laurel and Diego) joined the coyote clan, drawn to its long and rich history. Diego established himself as a culture-keeper, adding his own flair to the fire clan's traditions. Nazario was born there.

A Note on Adoption

Due to Ceniza Valley's cultural practices, and their importance to the del Bosque family, "adopted" members -- which can include typical child adoption, but could also include inviting an adult individual to take the family name for any reason -- are treated no differently than blood-related members. They can pass on the name/bloodline.

For example, Laurel invited Diego into the family. If Diego has kids, their birth can be listed in the subsequent generation as del Bosques.
