8.3.1 The Atabahi Rout
Coming together as a force in the outskirts of the Republic of Spinesreach, the Atabahi Rout is a diverse gathering of wolves who serve as the representatives for Lycanthropes across the land. The Council itself is elected of Representatives from the Packs which serve the Rout. Each path educates the young from being a fledgling whelp, up to mastery of their instincts and earning them placement within the Rout proper. Many have sought the ancient teachings passed on from their creation, and through calculated perseverance the Atabahi seek their history and will use all methods from their ferocious claws, to ancient rituals to discover more of their meaning and purpose. Each of the Rout's members is taught to how mutate into massive, cunning wolves, and with these teachings they learn how to embrace Ferality and the savagery of their gifts. These wolves are not a class in which one can educate but instead a fearsome race which requires understanding and patience to hone their primal will. In order to do battle with their foes, the Atabahi are taught a triad of powerful abilities. With Lycanthropy they master their mutations, learn to form packs, and to embrace the arts of subterfuge. Ferality is the combative art of the Rout, teaching the wolves to utilize their natural weapons to cause any number of wounds to a foe, working to tear them limb from limb. Finally, Howling represents the savage nature of the Rout, allowing them to bring down a myriad of painful effects upon any who would dare oppose them. The alliance amongst the packs of the Rout seeks to see the wolves repurposed under a common banner. For too long has the lone wolf ventured, and in 377 MA the Atabahi Rout has sought new purpose amongst their place within the Republic of Spinesreach. Heralding for the return of lone wolves to the den, the Atabahi seek to embrace the ever changing nature of their environment. They strive to seek greatness for the Republic under one united banner. The Elder wolves guide the paths as you seek excellence for all of lycanthrope kind. "As a lone wolf, perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection together we can catch excellence."
