The Second Dahlian War

DateJanuary 3, 2010 — April 5, 2010
LocationDahlia de Mai, Inferni
ResultInferni shifts northward
Dahlia de Mai ousts Haku Soul.



Haku Soul

Gabriel de le Poer
Kaena Lykoi
Anselm de le Poer

1.  Summary

The Second Dahlian War stems from a little bit of leftover tension from The First Dahlian War, a little bit of random drama, and a whole lot of Haku Soul's impending madness. Though the first conflict was settled with relative peace, Haku had it out for Inferni for a while, and he starts going a little crazy—he attacks Kaena Lykoi twice, once in the summer and once in the fall, and begins threatening Dahlia de Mai's leader, his relative Cercelee.

Kaena Lykoi kept it to herself for months what had transpired between her and Haku in the fall; when she finally reveals to her son, Gabriel de le Poer what had happened, the war breaks out almost immediately. The month of 2010January was very active, with both packs scrambling to defend their borders. The casualties begin at the end of January with the discovery of three bodies on the Inferni borders. Numerous others die and there are two or three major battles. All the while, Conor Soul begins to doubt his father, thanks to Firefly Sadira's preaching and a conversation with Kaena Lykoi.

At the beginning of April, Haku Soul burns down part of Inferni's territory. The clan shifts northwards, feeling it is too dangerous to remain so close to wolf land. A few days later, Haku is forcibly ousted from Dahlia de Mai, his son Conor taking over as the alpha male of the pack. He heads to Inferni the next day to announce the cessation of hostility, and the war is over.

2.  Deaths

2.1  Inferni

2.2  Dahlia de Mai

3.  Tensions Rekindled

Haku Soul and Kaena Lykoi meet for the first time outside of Inferni territory. The encounter does not end pleasantly, and Kaena Lykoi stumbles away from the scene believing she has killed Haku, only realizing later he survived.[1]

Haku Soul confronts Cercelee, as he believes he should lead Dahlia de Mai.[2] Their meeting is cut short by the arrival of Cercelee's mate; however, tensions still remain between the two leaders.

Haku Soul rapes Kaena Lykoi in Dalhousie University. Kaena decides in fear of her life, this fate would be better than death, and does not struggle for fear of angering Haku, who has her pinned and surely overpoweredMATURE: [3]

Haku threatens Cercelee with the murder of her unborn children if she does not resign.[4] She agrees to step down, leaving the pack to Haku, and leaves a short time later. [5] Bear traps and dead, massacred animals have been around Dahlia's borders for a few months. They have not yet found the criminal. Haku calls a pack meeting at which point he announces his ascension as the leader of Dahlia de Mai.[6] During the meeting, he also suggests the traps may have been laid by Cour des Miracles or Inferni.

Snake and Hezekiah Finch travel to Dahlia de Mai on to investigate the pack, but they are discovered by Haku, who chases them out of the territory.[7] After months of strange, unexplained behaviorMATURE: [8] MATURE: [9] [10] [11]— including extreme intoxication and hiding out in her cave for weeks at a time, Kaena Lykoi finally reveals to her son Gabriel de le Poer that Haku Soul had raped her.[12]

4.  Wartime

4.1  Border Attacks and Meetings

Kaena had been keeping it relatively secret until that point, and this admission enrages Gabriel, who immediately finds Samael Lykoi and tells him of what has occurred.[13] The pair immediately take off for Dahlia de Mai's territory, where they sought to find and punish Haku then and there.[14]

That same day, Halo Lykoi ventured into Dahlia de Mai with the intention of seeking vengeance on Haku Soul, but instead encounters her half-sister, Mew Sadira.[15]

Gabriel called a meeting to assemble Inferni together and officially declare war on Dahlia de Mai.[16] Gabriel and Samael have learned that Haku is no longer simply the subleader of Dahlia de Mai, but the Rosen of the pack, wholly in charge. Though their effort to violently dethrone him the prior night failed, the members of Inferni seem eager to have their revenge.

That same day, Haku called a pack meeting to call members of his pack to arms against Inferni. The reaction is understandably mixed; most members are simply troubled, and only a scant few react enthusiastically. Sicarus de Ericeto is a total creeper and practically drools on Haku's big toe. [17]

Bones Battle

ResultInferni drives Dahlians back



Kai Aiolos
Sicarus de Ericeto
Vitium Lykoi

Hybrid Holocaust

Hezekiah Finch




Casualties and Losses

3 injured

No casualties, small injuries

The next day, intent on keeping his word, Haku attacks Rikka de le Poer. He tells her that "she tastes like [Kaena]" (OMG CREEPER) and breaks her arm. [18] Gabriel de le Poer finds her the same night; the Aquila cares for his sister the best he can, though inwardly he's raging the hell out and wants nothing more than to skip over to Dahlia de Mai and tear Haku limb from limb.[19]

Sicarus de Ericeto, intent on making his exhalted, beloved, almighty Rosen proud, heads over to Inferni and chases after Vieira Lykoi. Just as he was about to kill her, Snake shows up and saves Viei, fighting off Sicarus rather quickly. Snake tends to Vieira's wounds and brings her back to Kaena Lykoi, where he is promoted from Hastati to Hydra.[20]

4.2  Bones Battle

Angered over the wounds suffered by his friend, Kai Aiolos decides that he and Sicarus should get revenge. They are joined by Vitium Lykoi, and proceed to destroy some of the skull pikes on Inferni's borders. Their fun is cut short when Hezekiah Finch spots the trio, and alerts the clan. He is quickly joined by Cotl Van Ulrich, Hybrid Holocaust, and Nakir Barzakh, who engage the Dahlian wolves. [21]

Myrtle Hammerkop trespassed on Inferni lands in search of his brother. He is discovered by Nala Garner, and the two argue for a few minutes. [22]

4.3  Allies and Enemies

During the month of January, several packs call meetings to declare neutrality in the war. Phoenix Valley decides they would accept Dahlian pacifists, Inferni members were to be turned away from the borders. [23] Cour des Miracles also called a pack meeting, and set forth a policy of neutrality unless provoked.[24] Savina Marino calls a meeting of Crimson Dreams; they decide to remain neutral, though they will accept any refuges that come to the pack. [25] Aniwaya? holds a meeting. Dawali Amara warns the pack that the recent conflict between Inferni and Dahlia de Mai is not Aniwayan business and that the members are to avoid the conflict. [26]

Despite these declarations of neutrality, Dawali Amara of Aniwaya? visits Kaena Lykoi in secret to offer medical supplies [27] and Jacquez Trouillefou meets with Kae to discuss the war. [28] Firefly Sadira is also decidedly aligned against Dahlia de Mai—she tells Conor Soul some things about his father he was previously unaware of [29] and delivers information to Anselm de le Poer. [30] She is motivated by her recent miscarriage, [31] caused by one Tokyo Chance of Dahlia de Mai and she'd already offered to Anselm de le Poer that she would fight Dahlia. [32]

Casualties and Losses



4.4  Deaths Begin

Mew Sadira dies in an accident[33], indirectly caused by the wounds inflicted by Halo Lykoi. Kai Aiolos is killed by Razekiel Lykoi. [34] Several Inferni members' bodies were found torn apart on the Inferni borders. Dahlian wolves were the suspected culprits, naturally.[35]

4.5  D-Day

March 6 is considered the culmination of the battle; Gabriel de le Poer leads an arson attack on Dahlia de Mai. Kaena Lykoi encounters Tokyo Chance and King Chance in Arachnea's Revenge and things escalate from there. [36][37] [38] [39] [40] [41] [42] [43] [44] [45] [46] [47] [48] Meanwhile, Anselm de le Poer leads a contingent of Inferni in building their greenhouse, waiting to treat the injured as they filter back from battle. [49]

4.6  The Burning of Harrow Road

Following the fires that burned Haku Soul's cabin, his son, Conor Soul is investigating around the burned area when he discovers the remnants of bear traps in his father's cabin. He realizes that is has been Haku all along setting the traps. [50] Haku Soul burns The Waste, part of which is claimed by Inferni—after this, he kills his follower, Sicarus de Ericeto and throws him in an Inferni trap.[51] Inferni decides to shift its borders northward, led by Gabriel de le Poer. [52]

4.7  War's End

Thanks to Conor Soul's suspicions, Haku Soul is finally ousted from Dahlia de Mai by a contingent of unhappy Dahlians. Conor Soul heads to Inferni the next day to announce to the clan that hostilities have ceased. Despite this, Inferni doesn't really relax—they know Haku Soul is still alive, of course, and the danger is far from over. [53]

  • Haku Soul rapes Kaena Lykoi in Dalhousie University. Though it's obviously not consentual, Kaena does not fight back, as she believes death would be a worse fate (a decision she regrets later). MATURE: [58] Afterwards, she heads to the shoreline and scrubs herself furiously with sand and salty water; Misery D'Angelo finds her and they spend the night together in a small cave nearby.

5.5  November 23, 2009

  • Haku Soul confronts Cercelee again; this time he threatens her children. She agrees to give up her rank and leave. Haku usurps her as the Rosen (first in command) and demotes Cercelee) to Adonis (third in command), telling her to stick around for a while. [61]

5.6  December 08, 2009

  • Snake and Kaena Lykoi spar to train for the war—Snake educates Kae about Optime fighting (one of her weaker points) as well as some general bodily weaknesses she is also unaware of. [72]
  • Marik attacks Minos Lierrah... sort of. He actually just hits on Minos which freaks him out into running him back to Dahlia de Mai. See, Inferni fights with sex, too! [73]

5.22  January 27, 2010

  • In the aftermath of the fire, Conor Soul discovers the remnants of bear traps in Haku Soul's cabin. He realizes for the first time that all along, the one setting the traps has been his father—this angers him, of course, as it has been the pack's very own alpha placing them in such danger. [121]

5.39  April 01, 2010 — The Burning of Harrow Road

  • Haku Soul and Sicarus de Ericeto set fire to Inferni's Harrow Road Landfill subterritory in retaliation for the attacks at the beginning of March. For unknown reasons, Haku turns on Sicarus. Kaena Lykoi arrives on the scene and attacks Haku Soul, and the two scuffle for a moment—this is interrupted by Halo Lykoi, whose arrival drives Haku Soul away. The pair notice the dying Sicarus de Ericeto, and both note that he was fatally wounded in the trap—they surmise, prior to being thrown into it. Following that, they head to attempt to stop the fire. Ironically enough, Haku retaliates with fire two years to the day after Gabriel set fire to the old lands of Bleeding Souls. [122]

5.40  April 02, 2010

  • Inferni gathers to take stock of the fire; Gabriel de le Poer decides it is no longer safe to keep their borders so close to wolf land—the pack begins to mark Inferni's new borders, shifting the clan northwards considerably. Two Inferni subterritories—Harrow Road and The Ravine—are lost in the fire, burned to ash. However, the clan takes a small piece of Halcyon Mountain and some more of The Waste, enlarging their territory despite the fire.[123]

5.44  April 06, 2010 — War's End

  • Conor Soul comes to Inferni and speaks with Gabriel de le Poer—he tells Gabriel de le Poer that Haku has been kicked out of the pack. This marks the cessation of direct conflict between the packs, though certainly, the second Dahlian War still lingers on everyone's minds. [127]

5.45  April 11, 2010

5.46  April 12, 2010

  • Inferni holds a meeting—the war's end is discussed, and the members warn that though the outright conflict with Dahlia has ceased, Haku Soul is still around and capable of causing harm. Anselm de le Poer has temporarily left his post of Optio, feeling pressured from the war, and this change is also announced. [130]
