11.7.8 Lupus, Wild God of the Beasts
Lupus, the beating heart of Nature, the spirit of Lupus, can be found in the soul of the wary observer from afar, to the racing mind of a fearful prey eluding the hunter, to the cold, calculating mind of the Predator, Lupus' spirit flows throughout them all. The essence of Lupus transcends the mere savagery of the wilderness, and permeates through the ritualistic culture of the Hunt. From the intricate, enchanting song during a Lupine offering, to the boisterous escapades of hunters celebrating over a pint, and even woven within the wondrous depths of a Tomaculan tapestry; it is here, in the refinement of mortal culture the Spirit of Lupus dwells, allowing those worthy of His blessing to be lost in the hypnotic pleasure of the Hunt. The Chosen of Lupus dwell within the mortal realms under the ways of a Wolf pack. Undyingly loyal to their brethren, these wolves tread through the lands not just as an individual, but an extremity of a greater whole. The hearts of the Lupine souls are so woven together that no force within the realms can sever this bond, save the Great Mother Herself. As the Pack, they live together, love together, and bleed together, such is the way of the Lupine soul. Woe be to the fool who draws the wrath of the Lupine pack upon themselves. Lupus has been known to appear to mortals in the form of a Great White Wolf, dashing through the underbrush of the lands, on a never-ending hunt through the Ethers. By the right side of the White Wolf walks Grimaldrin, the long time hunting companion of Lupus Himself, forever immortalized in the Hunt for his great deeds as the Captain of Lupus' Werewolf Guardians. Lupus is said to favour the talons of the mighty birds of prey that soar through the heavens above, as his shrines are known to reflect the might of the Lupine Spirit in the beasts of the land.
