1.  Overview

Amy Sunders is a symbol of everything that New Dawn despises. She deals in human artifacts, sees the lives of other Luperci as nothing more than goods to be traded, and she feels no remorse for attacking others physically as well as mentally.

Amy’s first interaction with New Dawn was in the spring of 2012, when she came by the pack lands meaning to trade. But Zalen, seeing that she was a dog, peddling human filth, and toting a slave along with her, chased her off.

A couple months later, Amy attacked Fayne, scarring the woman and frightening her. At this point, no one knew much about the woman, and so any kind of retaliation on New Dawn’s part was out of the question. It was only after Aeron visited from Anathema that Zalen learned it was there that Amy was hiding. Zalen told Aeron of the woman’s transgressions, and was lead to believe that she would be punished rightly by Anathema.

However, any sort of punishment that might have been given out did not keep Amy away. Fayne was attacked for a second time. But when she returned to New Dawn, she spoke to them about the puppy that Amy had with her, and it was then realized that this puppy was in fact Kohaku, Kiara’s son that had been stolen from her months before. This was the final straw, and Zalen was pressed to take action.

2.  Amy's Party

Amy Sunders
Kohaku Amarok
  • The Dog
  • Amy Sunders: A vicious female. Pure dog, claims to be a trader. Talented in assassinations, negotiations, and fighting in secui form. Loves torture. Believes herself superior to all others. Emphasizes acting cultured and moving away from the primal behavior of their ancestors. Usually armed with knives.
  • The Puppies
  • Kohaku Amarok: The kidnapped puppy of Kiara. A hybrid wolf, he is fiercely loyal to Amy and what she has taught him. Ambitious, cruel, and dominant. Knows the basics of how to fight. Believes himself to be part of a superior group. Charming in his personality.
  • Lucias Sunders: Amy's infant daughter, whose existence was a secret to New Dawn until the final showdown. Kohaku has sworn to defend her in Amy's absence. She is largely innocent, but fiercely loyal to her caravan family, not understanding why New Dawn has a vendetta against her mother.
  • The Slaves
  • Adara is trained to be a belly dancer and prostitute. She is blindly obedient to her mistress, skilled in pleasing others and avoiding trouble. She watched Amy burn those that she had been bought from alive. Adara is timid and only speaks when directly spoken to.
  • Dirk is a brute in the most common sense of the word, he is large, lumbering, and stupid. His blows are like that of a freight train and it will take several members to take him down.
