1.  History

Vesper was born in Mer Bleue (along with one sister) to a lone coyote mother, Winter. The trio of non-Luperci lead simple and solitary lives, rarely apart, until Winter was injured and Vesper stepped up as sole provider for the family. Near her first birthday, however, her father -- Marcel Moineau -- tracked down the children and killed Winter when she refused to relinquish them. Ves fought to defend Sparrow from being kidnapped, but Marcel beat her down.

She followed her father's trail for as long as she could, but eventually lost it and fell in with a group of young coyotes led by a bully named Oliver. Though she was aware of Oliver's control over the group, she was indifferent to his existence -- more interested in Juniper, one of his close friends. Her relationship with Juniper kindled into something more than friendship, which at last led Vesper to confront Oliver for his tyranny. She fought him for the right to lead the coyote band but ended up killing him -- horrifying the other coyotes rather than uniting them beneath her. Even Juniper refused to follow Vesper when she fled.

Vesper traveled alone the next few months, picking fights and generally being a bratty young loner -- but, at the same time, sharpened her survival skills. She made her way to eastern Canada, led by rumors, and in August crossed the Halcyon Mountain into Nova Scotia proper.
