Winter has finally come! The northern territories have begun to grow colder and colder and snow has started to fall in many places. The southern territories are entering their wet season and there will likely be heavy rainfall and flooding in many areas.
The breeding season has officially begun! With winter starting, wolves are pulling together for resources and planning for the next generation. More packs have emerged and although not all of the territories on the continent are claimed, it is beginning to grow more crowded with the promise of young life to add to the population come spring.
The continent has had much time to heal, and from the heat of what once used to be the desert, some signs of life have emerged. Though still significantly warmer than other regions, Adar has the occasional scattered foliage as well as a beautiful mosaic of sand bars, allowing wolves to wander miles into the gulf without fear.
The lush North Rim of the Xisyn sinkhole is more of a lush canyon, sporting hundreds of trees and caves to dwell in. The sides have been worn away from years of rain, making beautiful patterns over the rocky cliff face. Though the terrain can be treacherous to navigate, vines and foliage provide lots of privacy for the multitude of densites that can be found here, complete with a truly epic view of the canyon below.
In the midst of the fledgling oasis that is Adar lies Dalv Glad, an amalgamation of woody patches of palm and strangler fig. These provide not only shelter from the sun, but also produces much needed sustenance for the herbivores of the area, making this a popular gathering spot for prey. For wolves, these nourishing patches are often used as a kind of hospital, as several species of medicinal herbs and mosses grow along the thick vines.
Eel's Tail River is something of a contradiction; though it bears the shape of a river, it is actually more of a lake, its water trapped in by the sand bars to the north. Over time, the salt has mostly evaporated from the water, leaving this water the purest in the region. The animals within, though native to the sea, have adapted to live within the fresh depths here, and the Tail nourishes the forest that surrounds it.
Lod'nen Path is actually not singular, but plural: these sand bars stretch out into the Somani Gulf, stretching the border of the territory far into the sea. During high tide, a wolf would be chest-deep in water, but low tide is when the Lod'nen Path truly shines. The bars create hundreds of small pools across their surfaces, capturing fish, oysters, and crabs for any who are patient enough to seek them out—and if a wolf is lucky enough, some say that the saltwater pearls found here bring a year's worth of good fortune.

Xerxes is known to Kairos as the Centurion. Accompanied by his hulking size and ragged looks, Xerxes is not a wolf to be trifled with. His love for Kairos and it's members is as strong as he, maybe even stronger. There is no denying the males loyalty to Kairos and Hyperion, having once been the young Emperor's mentor. Recently a father, Xerxes is determined to do right by his offspring and raise them in the name of Kairos. Though he has a hit and miss relationship with the mother of his children, Tallyn, it is not his defining relationship. Xerxes is a wonder to see on the forum, his posts always managing to grip the reader and Grimm, the player, writes him in a way that makes him as compelling as he is. Grimm adopted Xerxes and brought a whole new spin to him, whilst staying true to his core. We're all wondering how the rocky relationship with Tallyn will play into his relationship with his offspring.
