Werewolf - For the Love of Life
An ancient, wizened old Garou of the Uktena, and sept leader of the Starheeders.
Shuns-the-Night has been leader of the Starheeder clan of Uktena in Colorado for near fifty years now, almost unheard of in Garou society. With challenges barked in every direction, he’s managed to hold onto his post by sheer cunning alone.
He came into his position during a time of great upheaval; The Storm Eater spirit had risen and in its primal fury, sent a powerful servant to strike down the nearby Uktena before they could mount a defense, or even call their Wendigo cousins for aid. With only a scant few of the Starheeders left, they turned to a recently returned shaman, a homid Uktena Theurge named Raised High. His son, lupus Shuns-the-Night, was wise for his young years, and the two together mounted a strategic counter-attack, ending with the spirit’s banishment.
With nobody else to turn to, and their prowess proven, the caern asked Raised High to be their leader. He declined, in favor of them accepting his son instead, as he was old and ready to finally be one with Gaia. Since then, Shuns-the-Night has led the caern in the wisdom above and beyond his Philodox ways, even with the encroachment of the humans and homid Garou in recent years. The Silver Boom of Colorado is hitting them hard, but he will be a fair and just helping hand in the pack’s advancement.
