1.  Introduction

Hi, and welcome to Cour des Miracles' history Wiki page! This page is intended to be a timeline of Cour des Miracles' history. Anyone is free to edit this page, provided you follow the 'Souls Wiki Guidelines as well as the Guidelines specified herein. Thanks for contributing, and please continue being awesome, Inferni!

2.  How it Began

The idea of a new pack started in two different groups that eventually merged into one cohesive vision. The first group consisted of Firefly Sadira, Svara Thames, and Leroy. Firefly and Svara had just been exiled from their previous pack, Dahlia de Mai, and Leroy had left his pack to be with Svara. They wanted a fresh start in a pack that would be different from the ones they had each left behind. The second group belonged to Jacquez Trouillefou and included Ruri Aceline. They left their homelands in the south and sailed north, hoping for a new land with new opportunities. However their ship hit a storm and was capsized, scattering it's inhabitants into the ocean. Ruri washed up on the Shattered Coast of 'Souls lands, being found by Haven Aatte, Firefly, and Svara. They helped to treat her wounds and Firefly and Svara took her in to live in their cabin with them. Haven returned one night to see Ruri and they talked, him explaining the personal issues that were dragging him down and making him feel outcast.

Jacquez had also survived the shipwreck and washed up on shore, though in a different place. He walked along the shoreline until he came to the Shattered Coast and was found by Firefly, Ruri, Svara, and Leroy. The five of them talked and decided that they should band together to create a pack, though nothing was made official. Ruri also told Jac about her friend Haven who was distraught and living in the nearby city of Halifax.

Jac visited the city and ran into Haven. The boy was instantly intrigued by the self-styled King and was willing to try his hand at following the man. Meanwhile Svara was brutally attacked and raped by Haku Soul and was left on the beach to bleed out and die. Luckily Leroy found her and sounded a distress call and all the members came together to save her. That night they knew they could no longer stay as a group of loners but that they needed to become a real pack. With a rousing speech from their King, all agreed to join this new pack, Cour des Miracles, and pledge their loyalty to it.[1]

6.  Past Pack Relations

Sangi'lak

There have been no notable interactions between Cour des Miracles and Sangi'lak, though the leaders at the time of Sangi'lak's formation did not have a high opinion of each other.

Cercatori d'Arte

Cour des Miracles and Cercatori d'Arte have a friendly relationship, and some members have moved between the two packs. The artisan pack's caravan has visited and offered trades, lending to a good relationship with no official alliance. Tensions arose when a member of the Court was caught trying to steal the caravan, but after her punishment, the relationship remains good.

New Dawn

Cour des Miracles and New Dawn do not have much of a relationship, though some of the original members of New Dawn were formerly members of Cour des Miracles. There has been some minor tension with specific members, however, the pack on the whole does not regard New Dawn with much of an opinion.

Anathema

There have been no notable (known) interactions between Cour des Miracles and Anathema, though CdM leadership has discouraged interaction in the past.

Inferni

In the past, the coyote clan and Cour des Miracles have had a benevolent relationship, with members moving and trading between the packs, relationships and friendships between individual members. However, even in times of war, there was no official alliance offered. Recently, however, a member of the Court vandalizing the border decorations has taken away some of the friendliness of the relationship existing between the packs. In summer of 2015, relations with IF deteriorated to the point of open conflict over the absence of the King's son Pascal.

Midnight Shores

There have been no notable (known) interactions between Midnight Shores and Cour des Miracles.

AniWaya

Prior to the spring of 2011, Cour des Miracles and Aniwaya had a very good relationship and Cour des miracles had hosted a horse race, which the tribe was invited to. Cour des Miracles was involved in the war with AniWaya when their new leader proclaimed a distaste for hybrids, which led to Cour des Miracles' official alliance with Crimson Dreams. After Crimson Dreams disbanded, a former member rose to leadership in Cour des Miracles, and while relations have improved under the tribe's new leadership, there is not a geat deal of friendliness.

Vinatta

Several eventual members of the Court were born in Vinátta - notably several children of former King Silvano Sadira and Vinattan Araedi Shiloh Dawnbringer. Members of Vinatta were also invited to fun events hosted by the Court.

Sapient

There have been no notable (known) interactions between Sapient and Cour des Miracles. However, Silvano's son was a founding member of Sapient.
