Chardonnay's Family Background

AS you can see, I am obsessed with family trees and histories that practically have nothing to do with the current state of affairs. A few of the younger members may become characters later on or be turned into NPCs and be adopted out for those who are interested. The Missing characters are there for plot flexibility in terms of offshoots and previous unknown connections.

  • The birth years are a guide in the strictest sense and serve only to give a general sense of the age and when they were born. there may or not be a missing generation between the first generation and the pups. This to allow for the proper assimilation of the Chartreuses into the Shunkaha pack.
  • Not all progeny and matings are included in the family tree, least of all those of the missing, due to deaths and so on..

1.  Background and Residence

1.1  Territories

  • North Shore of Lake Superior
    • Shunkaha and the supporting families take residence between the lake and Eagle mountain, often moving between the two.
    • Current territory of Chardonnay's birth pack who have held the area for generations.
  • France
    • The origin of the Chartreuse pair. Specific location unknown.
  • Canada and North America
    • Of minor importance. Occasionally travelers or traders are accepted into the group. Breeding with coyotes, though rare, is not unheard of.
  • Africa/Middle East
    • Of least importance. Through Xarius, Chardonnay's distant ancestors and family lives there. Specific location unknown.

2.  Significance

2.1  Prominent Families Influences

  • Shunkaha: An old family, it long reigned supreme in the surrounding area. The Shunkaha's enjoyed an easy dominance over the other families of the community and were typically considered to be the leaders. They are the umbrella over S'kaha.
  • Chartreuse: In the early years following the apocalypse, a pair of wolves from Europe joined the community. Although it is unknown whether they were a mated or sister-brother pair, they either produced a litter of pup or mated within the pack. To this day many wolves are descendants of both families.
  • S'kaha: The S'kaha is a branch of the Shunkaha family and includes cousins of different degrees. They are still considered to be Shunkaha, by members outside the family and their purpose is to distinguish them from the umbrella family.
