Pain. That's all I suffered. Pain. I couldn't believe that my clan -- no, all of the clans, had a rule that abandoned pups that was a malcadh (Cursed one). No, there's no such thing. It's just a deformity. And the rule itself? That's plain cruel. I was named Lyra by my second milk giver, Luna, a kind, elderly wolf. She too, thought that the rules of the wolf clans were wrong, so she was clanless. Luna saw my twisted leg, so she took me in. She had told me of the cruel rules, and I immediately hated those rules. But when I was about three moons old, old enough to eat meat, she had died of an elderly age. I wasn't suprised, she was about seven cycles old, that's how old she looked. But I was obviously sad at her death. But there was other things, too. What if I was killed by a cougar? Exactly how could I survive? My thoughts were long gone when I was saved by a certain "clone".... and the real story begins there...

Chapter One - The Malcadh Abandoned...Edit
(A dire wolf had just gave birth to four pups, two grey like her, and two snow white, like their father.)
(But the wolf quickly notices that one of the white pups has a twisted leg. She knows that said pup is a malcadh, and is to be abandoned. The mother wolf panics.)
(Not long after, the Obea arrives. She notices the malcadh and growls.)
The Obea: (Glances at the mother) You know the rules.... go, find a new clan. I'll take the pup...
????:(Everburn)*Steps on a twig)
(The Obea notices the snap, but doesn't respond to it. She picks the pup (Lyra) by the scruff and takes the pup to her trummfraw, where she is left to die. She stops in the middle of a forest)
Everburn:(Roars and Bites Obea's Leg)
(The Obea growls and tries to attack back.)
Everburn:(Twists, his boney left side is seen) Look at it child killer
(The Obea makes an attack again, and heads to her clan.)
Everburn:(Grabs her tail and Roars, takes the pup) Wheres the nearest elder
The Obea: (Sighs) There's a wolf named Luna that lives in this forest... I'm not supposed to save the pup, but it's my job to take them to their trummfraw. I must admit, I hate the rules of the clans, but I'll probably be killed if they find out about this... last time I saw Luna, she was in her den, which is north.
Everburn: Tell them that the scourge of clans says to stop or die (Takes Lyra and takes her luna)
The Obea: Yes... (Heads back to her clan)
Everburn:(Rubs Lyra's Paw) It will be ok, we shall meet again and I will Fix your paw
Luna: (Smiles at Lyra) ...^^
Everburn:(Sets her infront of luna and heads to the Obea's clan)
(At the clan)
Everburn:(Walks into View)
The Chieftan: (At the Obea) Did you get rid of the pup..?
The Obea: ...Not exactly, s-sir-
(The Chieftan snaps at her)
Everburn:(Roars to get their attention)
The Chieftan: (Glances at Everburn)
Everburn:(Growls and extends claws)
(The Chieftan glares at Everburn)
Everburn:(His left side of his face is a skull)
The Chieftan: Who are you?
Everburn:(I am your nightmares
The Chieftan: (Growls)
Everburn:(Grabs the Chieftans neck)
The Chieftan: (Still growling despite that)
The Chieftan: (Attacks)
Everburn:(Snaps the Chieftans neck)
(Some wolves start whimpering)
The Obea: Everburn... the rules have been around since we arrived in the Beyond years ago.
Everburn:(Grabs The Obea's snout)
The Obea: (Shivers)
Everburn:(Best get used to it, because your in charge
The Obea: (Nodds)
Chapter Two - The CougarEdit
(Three months after, young Lyra is seen awaking at dawn. She yawns, and tries to get her step-mother, Luna, up. No answer. Pup Lyra tries again. Still no answer. The pup tries about everything, but still, there's no response. Finally, Lyra lays her small head on Luna's side to see if she's breathing. She isn't. Lyra obviously knows that's she's dead now. She whimpers in sadness, but she wasn't suprised that her second milk giver had died. She was many cycles (For a dire wolf), but Lyra began to worry. She couldn't take care of herself. At least with Luna there was mice and rats she could eat. But she had to learn to hunt on small prey. The other thing was predators.... but it really begins here.)
Lyra: (Finds a stream. She is thristy from traveling, so she drinks from it)
(A cougar watches from a small cliff. It jumps down and sneaks toward Lyra.)
Lyra: (Finished drinking, but turns around and notices the cougar)
The Cougar: (Growls, tries to slash at Lyra)
Lyra: (Runs, the cougar following her)
(The cougar easily catches up to Lyra and scratches her back, leaving streaks of blood. The wolf pup hides in a log, where the cougar can't fit in)
Loud roars are heard, but nothing like Everburns
The Cougar: (Growls, turns)
An Invisible being Grabs the Cougar
(The cougar tries to escape the being's grasp.)

Lyra: (Bites the cougar's neck)
Falconer:(Decapitates the Cougar)
Lyra: (Licks her wounds from the cougar)
The Falconer leaves
(Lyra tries to find shelter. She eventually finds an abandoned fox den, and sleeps in it, hoping that someone will soon find her)
Lyra: (Wakes up) ...?
Falconer:(Grabs her by her scruff)
Lyra: ...Th-thank you, sir....
Falconer:(Walks to His camp)
Beserker:(Takes her and gives her some meat)

Lyra: (Notices Everburn hunting the dragon, then eats the rest of the meat)
Everburn:(Takes it down and kills it)
Lyra: (Stretches, notices a lone wolf beyond their territory) ?
(The wolf (Being bigger than most dire wolves) is seen attacking a smilodon that was trying to steal his kill) (The wolf is Faolan)
Everburn:(Tries to scare off Faolan)
(The smilodon dies, and Faolan drags his kill (A caribou) away)
Nimaudire: Forget about him, Everburn...
Everburn: Not while he is in our turf

But... you're a nice kid. Thanks for lightening me up. I'm usually a very... stoic wolf. Look, maybe this is somewhat hard for you to understand, since you're meek and young, but... nevermind."
