The Shadowpackers

Bandwith Issues

In the future, if we occur bandwith issues again (I will let you know), please report to THIS website to continue rp.

As you can see, I have removed the chat boxes until we need them again.

I want you guys to do me a favor. Please check all of the pages and make sure your characters info is correct. For all of the wolves born in Winter, I aged them up a year and some whelps have become Adults. PM me if you need to change/add/remove anything including rank, pictures, etc. Then I want you to go to your page and simply write the names of your characters on your page (you can order them in any way, pink for girls blue for males, (f) for females (m) for males, by age, or whatever you want. That way I can know all of the characters you rp and see wich Characters can be moved to Missing since they dont have roleplayers, and we can clean up and keep organized.

Ranks (in order of supremicy)

Red means that rank is taken, Green means that rank is open and you may join the pack under this rank, Blue means that you must ask my permission to become that rank before you are one (you cant join as this rank).

Subbordinates, Runners

Deltas

Whelps, Pups

There is no such rank as "warrior" here, since everyone is one. When there is a battle, the whole pack joins together to fight. We dont need a rank for that. However, the most skilled fighters in the pack are ranked as Guards. There are concequences to that rank, however.

Alpha
There is ONE leader of the pack, the alpha. S/he is not always the strongest, smartest, nor the wisest, but is always the most respected and obeyed in the pack. A good, healthy alpha will be strong, smart, and wise, and the more so they are, the more respected and known the become. No matter, whatever the Alpha says goes without question. No exceptions. The alpha doesnt really go around socalizing with middle and low class wolves. Company of close friends is always wanted, though, because sometimes the company of the Imperator isnt enough. When the Alpha touches you, you feel good inside. You feel full of energy and life and pride. When breeding season comes, if the Alpha is female: Her scent is the strongest, and all of the males immedietly turn her way and become aroused physically, their Sheaths hardening and their scrotum tightning. If the Alpha is male: He is most dominant of the males. He is always tense and the other males continue to submit to him even though they are crazy with the want to claim every female. This is simply instinct.
Whenever answering a question the alpha asks you, say Yes, Alpha or No, Alpha. And when following an order, say Yes, Alpha. You do not call the alpha by his/her name unless you are the Imperator or Prima. Otherwise, you always call them Alpha.
If the Alpha has a mate, S/he and the Prima will mate every year. Otherwise, the Alpha does not mate.

Imperator
The imerator is the wolf in the pack that is closest to the Alpha. they are also known as their second, and are very dominant over the other pack members, they are the most loyal to the Alpha and are feircly protective of him/her.
Whenever answering a question the alpha asks you, say Yes, Alpha or No Alpha. And when following an order, say Yes, Imerator. It is okay to call the Imperator by his/her name, but if you want to show respect, you will call him/her Imperator.
The Imperator is often unmated, as their #1 deuty is to the Alpha. In the rare ocasion that the Imperator does become mated, its mate does not become an Imperator, and they will only mate once.

Prima
The Prima is the wolf that is mated to the Alpha. There isnt always a Prima, but when there is, s/he is not as highly ranked as the Alpha, but s/he is still among the top of the ranking list.
Whenever answering a question the Prima asks you, say Yes, Prima or No, Prima. You do not call the Prima by his/her name unless you are the Alpha or Imerator. Otherwise, you always call them Prima.
The Prima and Alpha will mate every year.

Protector
The Protector isnt exactly what his/her name implies. S/he does not protect the pack from outside threats- that is the Guards job. The Protector is a wolf that is from Llunas line. S/he must be the purest of heart out of her decendents and typically stays away from the pack, only showing him/herself to wolves of either very high rank or of Llunas line. The Protector is a direct link between Lluna and her family, Lluna lives on through this wolf and this way, she keeps connected with her living family without having to leave the spirit world. The Protector often lives an incredibly long time, and glows softly while under Llunas influence.
The Protector will choose a mate and they will have one litter of pups. After the pups are adults, the Protector will then leave its mate and resume to the shadows.

Betas
The betas of the pack are best friends to the Alpha and/or Prima. This is not their initial rank, they do another job in the pack aswell. However, they are respected with the amount the Beta rank provides them, not their other rank. They are permitted to stop whatever job they have to aid and assist the Alpha/Prima.

Assassins
There are 3 Lead Guards- one for each group. They are highly aggresive, but the perfect Lead Guard will have a lot of self control over their anger. The Lead Guards have the job of leading the Guards in their scouts, and protecting their Group aswell as keeping threats out of the pack.
Lead Guards do not mate, but they are alloud to. They just choose to not mate, since it gets in the way of their emotions. However, if they do, it is with another Guard or a Gamma, and they only have one litter.

Centuri
The Lead Hunters regulate their groups hunting activity, and provide the tactics for hunting aswell as leading the hunt. Lead Hunters must be actively roleplayed, and if they remotely arent active, they will be demoted from their deuties. If the Lead Hunter isnt around, their group wont hunt. And if their group wont hunt, Shadowpackers wont eat. Being a Lead Hunter is a tremendously important task.

Medic
This wolf is the most skilled Healer in the pack.

Guards
Guards are the scouts of the pack. They are the strongest, most skilled fighters in the pack, and its their job to make sure no intruders or threats get in. They are never seen amungst the pack members unless they run into them while they are hunting and the Guards are scouting or something along those lines. Guards do not hunt for themselves, they go to the Freshkill pile and eat from there since they dont have time to hunt. They are split up into groups since the territory is so vast, that way they cover more ground and make better time. They never rest and are always on the move. When one gets tired it will travel to the Guard den and sleep while the rest of its group continues the scout. It will then locate its group through various howling calls, and will resume its deuty. Guards must put away all emotion and only concentrate on their job. Their rank is very strict about emotion. The perfect Guard will be an emotionless, but NOT thoughtless killer. It is loyal to the extreme to its Lead Guard and Alpha, and an exsquisite listener. It must be alert and always ready for anything aswell as willing to be injured or killed for the safety of its pack. When enamy packs launch their attacks, the Guards are the first line of defence, and must be ready for whatever they run into.
Since Guards are always scouting, the only time you must RP your Guard Character is when there is a threat, intruder, they are resting in the Guard den, or if they are called upon by a high ranker. Guards do not laze about the camp grounds, they are always moving, and so since no one ever sees them, you dont have to be active with them until something comes up.
Guards are only alloud to be mates with other Guards and Gammas. No if, ands, or buts. The few strongest out of the litter will then carry on the Guard deuties for its parents when they retire.

Elders
Elders are the wolves in the pack that are 8 years old or older. They no longer take part in hunts and retire from their deuties. Since they cannot hunt for themseleves, Their Offspring or Deltas bring them food.

Gammas
In this pack, Gammas are simply high ranking wolves. For whatever reason, they were chosen as a higher class Subbordinate, basically. You can acheive this rank if you are an active Subbordinate that shows deep respect and loyalty to the alpha. If you are chosen as a Gamma, you are shown more respect than you were when you were a Subbordinate.

Hunters
The pride of Shadowpack! This pack is known for its skillfull hunters, and takes much pride in them. They are the best in Russia at what they do- working together to provide food for the pack. They are split up into 3 groups, each lead by a single leader. When they hunt with their group, this is called a GROUP HUNT. Sometimes, they will all mesh together and hunt as one, lead by the alpha. This is called a PACK HUNT. Dont get those two mixed up Hunters hunt on their own to catch small lera for the pack and sometimes work with other wolves in their groups to hunt, but they strictly only hunt with others in the same group as them. This keeps the groups close and connects them as an individual hunting pack.

Healers
Healers are responsable for taking care of the unhealthy and the injured of the pack. They should be kind and gentle, with a firm attitude to control any angry patient. They make sure everyone stays healthy.

Subbordinates
Just regular pack members. They do not hunt for the pack like the hunters, heal for the pack like the healers, etc. However, they may hunt small lera for themselves if they are hungry, such as rabbits and mice. They dont serve much purpose for the pack, they simply hold no job in the pack but they do help out if needed unless the task requires a certian skill that they dont have such as healing. They breed and eat and poop, basically :)

Runners
This is another less populated rank, maybe of 5 wolves or so. Runners are built small and thin, genetically engineered to run long distances. They should have a long body with more leg height than body height. Their job is to relay messages from the Alpha to other packs- be them Allies or Enamies. Runners should be respectful to all others, and hold a superb memory to relay exact messages. There would be several of them to make sure the message is read correctly. They face dangers every time they leave the territory, so they should be brave and willing to take injury for the sake of their pack.

Deltas
This rank is for wolves that are basically a step above the term slave. They are still higher rank thank Omega, but go around running erronds for everyone in the pack, doing as told. They are submissive, but not as so as Omegas. They should be obediant and do as their told unless asked rudely ofcourse. They dont HAVE to do whats asked, but its their job to help out with whatever needs helping. For example, collect herbs for Healers.. Drag carcasses to the Freshkill pile for the Hunters.. Clean the Camp clear of bones, etc. They are like maids so to speak.

Omegas
The lowest rank in the pack adult wise, these wolves are the most submissive. They are timid and eat last in group eatings. They never hunt unless instructed to, and are often unhealthily thin. They are in charge of watching over the pups when parents leave to hunt or run erronds. They are perfect for the job- gentle, kind, non-aggressive, and feircly loyal to their packmates. They sometimes teach pups of the most important things in life, and though they are often brutally picked on, are always usually bright and cheery to be around.
Omegas may mate ONCE. They usually have small litters due to their small amount of hormones they have. Their pups will be born timid Omegas, like their parents.

Whelps
These wolves are inbetween the ages of 1 and 2 years old. Once they turn 2 they are no longer Whelps. They are looked after by their parents or mentor.

Pups
The wolves in the pack that are less than a year old. They are looked after by their parents or the omegas.

Territory (only for when we need to RP off of the main site because of bandwith issues)

Camp

 

Meadow

 

 

Lake

Dens

 

Alphas Den

 

 

 Healers Den 

 

 

 Nursery

 

Hunting Grounds

 Main Forest 

This forest is owns slim trees that reach for the sky with arms outstretched. Usual hunts take place here. This is also the most popular place for pack hunting. The snow always falls thinly in this forest aswell. Prey consists of stray deer and a small herd of elk.

 

 

 

Fir Forest

The Fir Forest- This is where hunters usually are, hunting deer and elk. Also, in winter, they come and cut down trees and pull them away to celebrate a holiday. Strange wires are attached to tall poles that run along, attached to eachother. They are much too high to reach, and make an odd buzzing sound that is eerie. Deer and elk are plentiful here, but again there is a high risk of running into a hunter, so never go alone. The snow falls thickest here. Prey consists of stray Elk and stray Caribou (aka Reindeer).

 Birch Forest

The Birch Forest- This is where smaller prey that is easier to catch can be found. Only in summer there is no snow, and only in summer is the floor of the forest covered in ferns, moss and blades of grass. Prey consists of rabbit, ground squirrel, and phesants.

 

 

 

Bear Forest

It snows least in this forest, making hunting much easier. In spring and Summer, lush grass grows in massive clearings that are scattered about the forest. There are large herds of lera here, but because of that, there are more predators here. The brown bear is very popular in russia, so expect to see one every time you come here. Prey consists of a herd of Deer, a herd of Caibou (aka reindeer), a herd of Moose aswell as small game such as rabbits, and mice. Keep in mind that moose are VERY dangerous! Do not attempt to hunt them alone, or you will end up like 'oh shit! That cow just killed me'. As for male Elk, they WILL -I repeat- they WILL square off with you if you go after them. They are extremially dangerous because of their strong, sharp antlers. There is a high chance you will be gored if tangling with a male elk. As stated before, there are other predators out there, so watch out for Grizzley Bears and Cougars, aswell as lone wolves that may be hunting in the area for the rich amount of lera.

 

 

 

Buffalo Reserve

The humans placed a Buffalo reserve in Russia in hopes of sprucing up the population and helping the Buffalo thrive. However, unknowingly, part of the reserve cuts into Shadowpack territory ;)
While hunting Buffalo, keep in mind that they are massive creatures that dont go down easily. Even hunting a calf, you need 2-3 wolves. To take down an adult you need atleast 6, however, more are suggested as more wolves in the hunting party, the better chance for a successful hunt. The prey here consists of a herd of Buffalo.

Missing Wolves

These wolves have been reported missing (Inactivity will cause this). Missing wolves are still counted under the overall number of wolves in the pack. Meaning, if someone goes missing, I will still count them as a wolf in the pack just incase they return, but if a whole year cycles around and they still havent been seen, they will be deleated from Shadowpack.

Eon
MIA since Feb 17, 2012

Eon joined Shadowpack as a 2 year old, but is now 3 (as of June 2012). She is a fast wolf and small for her age. She has grey fur on her back and tail, but the rest of her body is white. Her eyes are a faded blue and she has a scar near her left eye from a cougar when she was little. She is very shy but also enjoys company. Eon is adventurous. it is hard to earn her trust but when you become a friend, she will protect you with her life. She enjoys hunting and can be very talkitive when she is excited. She loves the forest and open grasslands and loves to be in the thick of the action. She used to be friends with a human researcher untill she moved away. Her birth name was Echo but she did'nt like it so she calls herself Eon. She loves pups and would like to have some one day.

Toran
MIA since Mar 29, 2012

Toran joined Shadowpack as a 2 year old but is now 3 years old (as of July 2012). Despite his noble appearance, he is the omega of the pack. With a concerning dark past, Toran hopes to be one with the wild. He has never lived anywhere else but the woods, though he is a pure bred black German Shepherd, he feels that he is capable of living alongside wolves. Born in the woods of a far away territory, he was left as a runt in the eve of a cold winter night, until a family of coyotes discovered him and took him into their own litter. He left them at an early age and set off to live on his own and start his own path. He is a beautiful midnight black and has dark chocolate brown eyes and is large and stocky. He is bold and strong, though sweet and kind to those who wish to be kind to him. When he is bossed around, he rebels and usually ends up in a fight because of his stubbornness, though he is not a bad fighter. He's gentle to the younger ones and curteous to the elders, but will not back down to a tyrant. He is trying to ease into the hunter position, wich is hard for his rank, but he is getting there.

Pandia
MIA since Mar 01, 2012

Her name translating to Moon, Pandia appears just that. This three year old female has a snow white pelt to accent her dark saphire blue eyes. She is said to be a most beautiful wolf, her slender and elegant frame aswell as lady like manners making her appear harmless to others. For those whom dont know her, she would not assume to be the type to like getting her paws dirty. Pandia has had many lovers in her short years, though none have really caught her eye or stollen her heart. And so her search for the perfect hewolf goes on, her only current love being bloodshed. Her immence lust for it makes her a deadly warrior indeed. Her strong eyes will pearce the very soul of her victems, seeming to hypnotise them. This leaves them vunerable to her attacks as her stout, femanine build provides her with the endurance, speed, and strength she needs to sucessfully kill. Pandias parrents were murdered, something that may fuse her desire for bloodshed.

Damon
MIA since Dec 11, 2011

A red wolf, Damon is very strong and noble, with a past he prefers not to reveal to others. He likes to keep to himself and doesn't indulge on other's social lives, and has decided he does not want a mate, for reasons he will not conceal to anyone but his closest and trustworthy friend, that he has yet to find. He is wholly passionate and understands that all need love, and is fully capable of providing it if he desires to. He has a fierce independance, and is generous at times. He is a talented fighter and takes pride in combat. A relatively thick furred male who is large in size and in muscle. He has many scars underneath his fur and only reveals them to some when proving he had been in too many fights accountable. He has a red/brown coat and dusty white patterns on his face, belly, and limbs. He has very peircing brown eyes, that seem red in some lighting.Being a skilled fighter, he was one of many warriors in his old pack. He had many friends who helped him out in fights with older, more capable of winning against him wolves and eventually, Damon came to learn it himself, how to handle his weight and feet, doing good work on his paws. He was devastated when his pack was overtaken by a tyrant by the name of BloodLust and all wolves that were lower in strength and in talent, were enslaved and made to work as diggers for the dead. Damon was among the few wolves that were proserved for assassin work and fighting. As soon as he was assigned his first task to obstruct an Alpha of his fellow pack, he refused and broke into a row with BloodLust, but was overtaken by BloodLust's massive servants, the CrowBloods. He was thrown into slavery in which he devised a plan to release the wolves that were feebly still alive back into freedom, which was working, until one of the CrowBloods got suspicious and threatened to kill Damon if he got one more hint that he was working an escape. Eventually, he was found out and badly wounded by the CrowBloods, then, mistaken as dead, thrown out. Damon left to heal, but returned shortly with a mightier pack that was willing to assist his fellow packmates. They destroyed BloodLust's revolting pack, and in the process, killed the tyrant Alpha. Coming home to good hands, the packs joined in unity and all was well. Though, Damon thought it unsafe that he would stay, for BloodLust's servants weren't all killed. Damon is now a traveler and wanderer, with a haunting past. Damon joined Shadowpack as a 5 year old and is now a 6 1/2 year old (as of June 2012)

Alaska
MIA since Dec 11, 2011

This wolf is neither young nor old, around 4 years. She has short, whispy grey and rusty brown fur with pure white fur on her tail. Her warm eyes are vivid and strong gold and they reveal her stubborn nature. This larger than average size wolf has only 3 toes on one paw that is rather ragged looking and covered in hairless scars. Her head is slim and narrow with majestic pointed ears and nose. A low profile wolf, she is mischievous, intense, majestic, observant, gruff and calculating. She dislikes the presence of clingy wolves.

Bourne
MIA since Jul 14, 2011

Although he is a trained assassin, he has amnesia and can't remember all of his past. He knows there was a mate of his, named Marie, and it seems he is still clinging to her, even though she was shot and then drowned by humans. He is kind, He is a brilliant fighter and is very agile. He is idealistic, confident, trusting, hopeful, upbeat and industrious, honest, responsible, meticulous, pragmatic. More words to describe him would be deliberate, focused, steady, thoughtful, courteous, cultured, modest, charming, humorous. An all black wolf with a little bit of white and grey eyes, he is very strong and muscled. Bourne was never part of a whole pack, and was known as what many would call a loner. He was eventually requested to be an assassin for a pack called TreadStone and he agreed to it, being a skilled and stealthy fighter. Although, he did not know he was going to be an assassin, he was just asked to be a soldier for the pack, and he was surprised when he was forced into his first killing job which was to murder a wolf named Neski because Neski’s views did not agree with TreadStone and the only way that TreadStone could get their way, was to kill Neski. Before he was assigned this task, Bourne was heavily trained under some of the greatest fighters of that pack and became a first class soldier. Bourne agreed to perform the assignation of Neski and one night went out to his den and killed him, then unexpectedly, Neski’s mate was there and Bourne had no choice but to kill her too. Shortly after Bourne returned to TreadStone, he informed them of his mistake of killing Neski’s mate and they were extremely disappointed and vowed to kill Bourne. Bourne escaped before they could kill him and was in a wild goose chase with the assassinators of TreadStone. Eventually, they caught up to him and were about to kill him when human hunters attacked the scene, killing both of the hired assassins, but shooting Bourne in the left thigh. After he fled, he was shot again in the left shoulder and he fell, but was not found by the humans. He laid there, and soon passed out from the blood loss, but oddly enough he awoke, alone in a den that had been vacant for some time. His wounds were cleaned and the bullets removed, but he was not done healing, so he stayed another 3 days before he moved out. He suffered from amnesia, where he could not remember anything of being an assassin and murdering Neski, except for short flashes of memories that didn’t tell him anything. He was caught in a buffalo stampede and broke his right leg and tried his best to heal it himself, sloppily without much experience. He now is a kind wolf, but troubled, for he does not remember anything about TreadStone or his job there. He knows he was a killer, but he wants to deny it and has proven a trustworthy wolf with a bad past. He joined Shadowpack as a 3 year old and is now a 6 year old (in July 2010).

RedSlate
Dissapeared from the pack Jun 05, 2011

Like his brother, ShadowHawk, Slate is a red wolf, but he looks more like his father than his mother, being mostly white and grey. He has larger ears and most would mistake him not being related to Hawk, but he is Hawk's pure blood brother, from the same litter. He is more muscled than Hawk, but less skilled in the swift area like his brother, and more reliable on his strength and weight. He has light brown eyes and a quiet demeanor. Slate is much more quiet and reserved, opposed to his brother and takes a very long time to get used to others, and some may give up after a few attempts of becoming his friend. He mostly hides his emotion behind a mask of blankness and sometimes disappears into the forest for days on end. He's mysterious, but holds a certain nobleness about him when he walks smoothly along the ground. He's a very beautiful wolf, but a smile barely ever comes across his face. He is 3 years old and serves Shadowpack as a hunter.

Dagger
MIA since ?/?/?

Dagger is a handsome black male with amazing yellow eyes aswell as hunting skills. His personality is strong, as is he. Dagger is gentle and caring, but can be vicious and sharp tounged at times. He is compatiable, social, and like his father is a great fighter and has good endurance. Hanging on a peice of rope around his neck is a bear tooth given to Dagger by his father on his first birthday. The gift was surposed to bring good luck to him on his travles for The Wildfire wolves. Though his mother and father gave him a list of packs to chose from to go to, and so he chose Shadowpack.

WhiteFang
MIA since ?/?/?

A sad, lonely, and harmless old wolfdog hybrid, WhiteFang has seen most of everything any wolf has seen in a lifetime. He is a strong and broad male, with the presence of a neglected pup, a runt of the litter, but the personality of that with loads of endless respect and unconditional love. His father was a wolf by the name of Torrent, and his mother was a husky; Karenina. He was raised outside of a city in the California mountains, and was soon abandoned after a cougar attack on their den. He was left, being the somewhat smallest of the litter. But, he had resisted the hard impact life struck on him, and continued as a healthy halfbreed, living in freedom in the wild. He has saved lots of unresponsible and rebelling young pups from careless decisions, and has helped them on their way to a good life. WhiteFang can be rough, but he has a soft and caring disposition.

Nightmare

Brother to DarkestShadow, he, Darkest, and their deceased sister Ero were separated at birth when an enemy pack attacked theirs. Their parents and everyone else was killed in the attack, but for some reason, these pups were spared. After many weeks of wandering, Darkest was found and taken in by a clan of cats known as DarkClan. There, a she-cat by the name of Nightleaf raised the pup until she could survive on her own. Ero was taken in by a pack called the Broken Shadows, were she later died from being murdered in the Puppy Bowl. Nightmare lived his first two years of life as a rouge and now resides in ShadowPack with Darkest, training to be a healer. Born in Spring.
