The howls in the night reminded the children of the small wilderness town from the tales their parents told. Stories of young men and women who foolishly wandered out into the dark woods at night, never to be seen again. In the city, folks would laugh at such “superstition,” but not here. The howls reminded the townsfolk of lessons about staying in their place. Of the fiery eyes that too many of them had seen from afar. Of the Meninna. Of the Hunters in Darkness.
Ban: Let No Sacred Place In Your Territory Be Violated
The Firstborn hunted both night and day. But as the Hunters in Darkness tell the tale, Hikaon-Ur, the Black Wolf, was the one who was most at home in the night. When Father Wolf’s pack hunted at night, she was first to find the trail. When the pack rested after a tiring day hunt, Hikaon guarded her brothers’ and sisters’ dens as they slept. When the sun set and the moon rose, there was no hunter more swift and silent than she.
The Hunters in Darkness (Meninna) are an Uratha tribe who protect the sacred places of the world.
