The Marino Family
Siblings Savina Marino, Ghita Marino, and Ehno Marino were born to a small wolf pack called Monti Sabini in the wilderness of Italy. They are the founding members of the 'Souls Marino family, and have a strong base in the southern packs including Cour des Miracles and Casa di Cavalieri, and formerly Crimson Dreams. Thanks to their origins, they are typically fluent in Italian. Younger generations of Marinos are likely no longer fluent in Italian, and many may have lost their connection to the first generation.

Culture and Homeland
- The Marino family hails from Monti Sabini, and as such, nearly all of them are fluent in Italian.
Savina, Ghita, and Ehno were born to a small pack in the wilderness of Italy. Unlike most of the European luperci, this pack lived as normal wolves, not dealing with any human artifacts and never shifting. Serge, the wolf that sired Savina and her siblings wanted nothing to do with them or their mother Amata, so he disowned them all. Despite the tough blow this was to Amata, she did a wonderful job raising the trio of pups and they were a very close happy family.
When they were just over a year old, Ehno, Savina's brother decided to go on a personal journey and left the pack. About half way through their second year, her sister Ghita miscarried her first litter of pups and disappeared. For a long time it was just Savina and her mother. But then in late May of 2008 they had an accidental run in with a bear which ended in Amata's death. Serge tried to comfort her after the accident, but being so distraught and the rage at his treatment of her her whole life, Savina turned and attacked him. She did no serious harm, but she knew that the pack would throw her out.
She took to wondering and came across a luperci port town. She snuck onto one of the ships to explore, but got trapped inside when the ship set sail. A while into the journey a horrible storm came up and sunk the boat, washing Savina out to sea. The next thing she remembers was washing up on the Canadian coast. She was eventually reunited with her wayward brother and sister, and that was how the first generation of Marino wolves came to 'Souls. In the summer of 2012, Savina returned to Italy, bringing several of her children along with her.
