2003 — The Third Year
On this page... (hide)
While Jaded Shadows remained steady with Mordulin and Salvaged Eternity as the leaders, Silent Dawn rapidly cycled leaders, leading to its eventual demise at the tail end of the year. Although Salvaged Eternity was steady in his leadership role, outside of the pack, he was a torment to the lands—numerous rapes, murders, fights, and other such evils were perpetrated by the man. Celestial Hollow was founded, but due to its floundering leadership, it never truly took off, and was overtaken by an ambitious young female near the very end of the year.
- 12 January: There is an altercation involving a few wolves and coyotes in the Crystal Caverns. Shadowfax and Blitzaugen are attacked by Kesho Maisha and RiotYote.
- January 13: Ceres Sadira tells Salvaged Eternity of her rape by a coyote and impending pregnancy. Salvaged offers to present himself as the children's father, effectively adopting them so that Ceres does not have to tell them of their horrible conception or their half-coyote blood.
- 23 January: Sayna, Adan, Bran, Fiacha Aika, and Niamh are born in Jaded Shadows to the alpha, Mordulin Aika and the alpha male of Silent Dawn, Alorran. The children remain in Jaded Shadows, though they are regularly visited by their father.

Alphaship passes to Ashened, the remaining co-alpha.'
- 10 February: There is a Clouded Tears and Silent Dawn altercation. Ravyn Stormbringer is attacked by Nosferatu Traum and Romney. A loner, Tiku, joins the fray to defend Ravyn, until Tigra Sunbound also jumps in, outnumbering the pair of wolves.

- Coyote Invasion Ends
- 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.

An unexpected event occurs; the former Beta wolf of Silent Dawn, Bloodblack, appears suddenly, and requests entrance to Storm for simple curiosity, though he truly was interested in the beta female of Storm, Taaktuq. Stormy grants him acceptance to the pack, and they eat. (and the reason this makes sense in light of the fact that Bloodblack is in both Storm & SD seemingly simultaneously is because back then we didn't care about timelines at allllll, seriously. ;P)
