In early January of 2011, Sirius Revlis returned to his place of birth in Nova Scotia, heading to Anathema. There, he found the woman who raised him, Naniko D'Angelo. Sirius settled into the pack uneasily, meeting a woman who claimed distant relation to Sirius -- Eris Eternity.

He befriended her quickly, though he found her lacking in useful skill; however, it wasn't long before Eris herself requested education in hunting and survival skills. Eris was distressed by her uselessness in the face of motherhood, and found herself unable to ask anyone but Sirius. Over the next few months, Sirius educated her and she learned, and all the while they grew closer.

It was Sirius who first suggested they might form a pack of their own. Eris was hasty to agree, finding herself connected with only a choice few members of Anathema (though, of course, she hadn't sought many of them out, either). Thus the idea of a new pack began to brew in both of their heads.

Throughout the early weeks of April, they conspired secretly in the late nights, whispering of this place where they would ensure each member contributed equally, where they would seize much-desired power, and all other fantastical conjectures made by would-be kings. In the third week of April, they began to recruit -- these members they sought were suggested by Eris, who found herself with at least enough social connections to form the basis and foundation of a new home.

The canines sought were mostly Anathema canines, though Eris was lucky enough to encounter Bastion Hallow and Janos Russo, a curious pair she had been fortunate enough to receive during her journey northward from Eterne. They, too, were invited, and in the first week of May, the canines made their way to the westernmost corner of Drifter Bay, where they settled amongst the thistle and ruins of humanity.

2.1  Early Months

Just days after settling into the territory, Larkspur and Sirius dispatched a dangerous bear from Salsola's territory, killing it. They decided to make use of the body, and Larkspur took the bear's skull to present it to Eris. Sirius was given a bearskin cloak, although he gained scars and lost half a tail in the process.

New recruits and slaves alike came to Salsola: Larkspur took a woman, Rowan Bissette, as his personal slave. Denver Mathis and Magnolia Takekuro, both of the southern Cour des Miracles kingdom, joined Salsola. A traveler from the Appalachian Mountains, Jeremiah Ezekial, arrived in Salsola seeking Eris and joins with the pack. Bastion Hallow and Tlantli Kimaris chased and captured a pair of trespassers; one of these wolves, Darijus Ostroszek, was captured as a slave.

Larkspur began building a barn and corral for the horses of Salsola, drawing assistance from various packmembers. Once completed, the barn held eight horses, with two rooms for tack and food. It is well-concealed with foliage and other brush, keeping prying eyes from discovering Salsola's livestock.

The pack gathered for their first Last Supper celebration, where Darijus acted out, demanding food, and was punished accordingly. He lost his tongue and his foot was mangled as retribution for slapping Salvia; he would have lost his hand, were it not for his intended purpose as a labor slave, according to Eris.

In late July, Eris gave birth to the first litter of puppies within Salsola to her now-mate, Larkspur D'Angelo. The children were kept within Eris's den for longer than usual, and the mother behaved somewhat erratically. This was due to the illness of Shibboleth D'Angelo, the last child born to the pair. Nevertheless, Larkspur and Pandemic D'Angelo, along with Itachi Lykoi, headed south to Freetown for trading purposes at Sirius's command.

In late August, the trio of traders returned, and Salsola gained a new slave and a new recruit: Verusha Agata and Liliya Russo, respectively. Citlali Etalpalli-Kimaris began the construction of the gardens in the Borgata Xicohtli territory.

Founding History

April 4

  • Eris and Sirius go fishing together; Sirius teaches Eris how to fish. It's OOCly assumed Sirius brings up the pack idea with Eris after these events. Following this thread, Sirius and Eris meet together in secret over a period of a few weeks to hash out potential members, ranks, and so forth. [1]

April 22

  • In the Anathema caves, Sirius and Itachi discuss the idea; Sirius asks Itachi who he considers as family and proposes the idea that Itachi can choose his own family. Sirius leaves the choice as to whether to follow to Itachi, but strongly implies his potential will be wasted in Anathema. [2]

April 24

  • With Eris's recommendation of her, Sirius and Tlantli discuss the idea and Sirius asks for Tla's loyalty in forming the new pack, and again proposes the idea of a family bound by their pack ties. [3]

  • Eris and Larkspur discuss the idea of departing to form a new pack; Eris promises Larkspur she and Sirius will lead with strength. [4]
