Chapter Seven

A cold heavy mist still hangs in the air as two small boats slowly make their way across the ice cold water.

Iuana, Teddy and Eve all sit in one of the small boats, Kitchi and Eleven standing on either side and rowing the boat forward with large ores. Not far from them in the other small boat sit Shiya, Yula and Kit, their boat being rowed by Hasson and Tahki.

Teddy looks back toward the ice that they had traveled across, it far off in the distance and now nothing more than sharp bergs from being broken apart to prevent their pursuers from following them. Even if Dolly and Zack did manage to get through the broken shards the ice abruptly ended, leaving a large body of freezing ice water to cross, they unable to get over it unless they had a boat. “This is quiet a set up.”

Kitchi speaks up, he the both the youngest and smallest of the warriors that had come to help them, he probably only in his mid teens. “The Chieftain went through great lengths to set this all up so that we will be protected, the ice fog disorients those that enter it, the ice forest keeps large vehicles from easily entering, and even if they manage to get through that anything heavier than a person will break the ice that needs to be crossed from their weight, and for those that travel across it on foot the ice ends, leaving them unable to cross.”

Eleven begins to speak as she looks over to Kitchi. “Still, there are ways of getting through it, the resourceful will always find a way. Our greatest asset was that the enemy did not know our location, now once those two return to their companions in the military they will.”

Teddy looks to the side nervously, that fault of course falling onto him and his companions, they having been the ones to lead the enemy of the Raven Wolf tribe here.

Kitchi looks back to where they had left the pursuers. “Well, why don’t we just get rid of them before they can go back and tell the other domestics where we are? That girl fell into the ice so that means they should be immobile for a bit while she recovers. So we still have time.”

Eleven glances over to Shiya on the other small boat. “Do you honestly think that Shiya would give us an order like that? He right now works hard to create a bridge of peace with the domestics, an action like that will destroy everything he has worked so hard on.”

Kitchi frowns, the domestics having broken that bridge when they had attacked them and taken the chieftain’s daughter. “How are we supposed to convince them to be at peace with us? I know you weren’t there but you must have heard about what happened the last time Shiya tried to bring peace between us. They attacked us and kidnapped Iuana, even wounded one of their own to put the blame on us as to turn the rest of their people against us!”

Eleven nods her head. “Yes they did... but Iuana is returned to us, and the boy they intended to blame us for killing is safe. There is still hope.”

Eve looks over to Iuana, the white wolf staring bitterly at the other boat, her eyes fixed on the woman that was rowing, she the female warrior that lead the warriors of Raven Wolf. “Do you not like her?”

Iuana looks back to Eve the answer to that obvious. “I hate her!” She holds her hand to herself as she explains. “She treats me like a child when I am as good as a warrior as any of the others!”

Teddy looks over to the woman on the other boat. “Who is she?”

Iuana looks to Teddy as she explains. “Her name is Tahki. She is the strongest of our tribe and is the leader of our warriors, she decides who is able to fight and who is not and trains them to be strong, when in battle everyone responds to her orders. The only one she need answer to is my father.”

Kitchi chuckles to himself. “Not even her husband can tell her what to do.”

Eleven looks over to Kitchi, speaking in a clam yet strict tone of voice. “Kitchi mind what you say. You would not want someone to speak ill of you would you?”

Kitchi frowns as he looks away from her, getting his mind back to rowing the boat.

Teddy looks over to Iuana. “If it’s worth anything... I think you’re a great warrior.”

Iuana sighs as she looks over to Teddy. “Thank you, now if only Tahki would think so.”

The journey continues in silence, the boats slowly moving across the water toward their destination.

Dolly is lying on the ground next to fire that Zack is building, she still wet and shivering cold. The two of them still near the lake, having not being able to fall back very far at all with Dolly the way she was. Zack is snapping branches off of nearby trees and doing his best to brush the frost off of them before throwing them to the fire, nothing in the area dry enough to make a decent flame. “I swear just when I think this stupid mission can’t get any worse it goes out of its way to get worse!”

He returns to Dolly’s side laying down on the ground next to her to help get her warm, Dolly looking back to him, it not like they had gained nothing from this ordeal. “We know that Raven Wolf’s village is in this area. It’s not an exact location like we were originally hoping for but it’s better than nothing. Once we return and give the general our information he’ll be able to put a much more prepared group together and we’ll have no trouble reaching the village.”

She closes her eyes the warmth from Zack’s body helping to calm her shivering some. “But once that happens... what’s going to happen to Teddy...?”

Zack sighs at the question, the answer to that obvious to anyone that thought the situation over, it of course not pleasant or what she would want to happen. Dolly after all having accepted and come on this mission with the intent to find and bring her brother back whom she had been told had been kidnapped, it turning out to not be so, Teddy having joined with and now helping the side that they opposed. “Remember, you told General Mort that if the situation called for it you would take your brother down where he stands.”

Dolly closes her eyes, though she had said that in all seriousness she didn’t expect that she would actually have to do it, the realization that she would now sinking in. “You’re right... I did say that...” She shakes her head crossing her arms tighter as she tried to calm her shaking body. “Of all the times for him to act like a wild and not a domestic...”

Zack frowns, this obviously a problem for her. “If you want I’ll take him down so you don’t have to.”

Dolly shakes her head. “No, he’s my brother. I’ll try to reason with him... and if I can’t... I’ll do what I have to do...”

Zack turns his gaze away from her. “Boy am I glad I don’t have a brother as dumb as yours.”

Dolly turns to her back slightly, she turning her head to try and look back to Zack, what he had said causing her to remember something. “Magellan... there was a woman among the wilds, when I saw her face she looked exactly like you.”

Zack frowns at the reminder. “She was the same breed as me, so of course she looked like me. To me all you wolves look the same too.”

Dolly shakes her head, it more than just that. “No, she looked exactly like you... you two were more similar than me and Teddy and the two of us are twins. She looked so much like you that she could have been your clone.”

Zack sighs to himself, there was no denying that fact. The two of them did look exactly the same, but it wasn’t a very big surprise to him as it was to Dolly. “I know her.”

“You do?”

Zack nods his head, it impossible for her to deny it. “Yeah... I mean it’s pretty hard for me to forget her face... it’s almost the exact same one I see when I look in the mirror.” He closes his eyes thinking back. “I used to call her Eleven... who knows if she still goes by that name after all these years... I know I don’t go by the name I had back then.”

Dolly questions him about this. “You had a different name? What was it?”

Zack frowns at the question, Eleven having called him his old name when she had seen him. “Twenty-Six...”

*******


Yula is about to nod off to sleep when Kit grabs onto his arm shaking him awake. “Hey Yula we’re here!” The boat rocks for a moment as Kit excitedly jumps out splashing through the shallow water and onto the muddy ground.

Yula gets to his feet and follows after him, the group having made it to a large island in the center of the lake, large overgrown grass and trees filling it.

Shiya points ahead of them through the thick overgrown plants. “It’s only a little bit further.”

The second boat hits shore, Teddy the first of the visitors to step out into the water, a surprised look on his face when he finds the waters to be cold, but not freezing cold like the frozen waters they had just finished crossing. He looks around him, the weather too was not cold at all, and the trees here were not covered with frost like the forest that surrounded the lake, most noticeable of all the fog was gone, although still hanging over the waters they had crossed none of it hung over the island.

Eve walks ahead of him a curious look on her face, she too having noticed everything that Teddy had. “How strange, in all my studies and research I’ve never encountered a phenomenon like this.”

Iuana looks back to her companions. “We’re almost home.”

The group continues their walk through the forest while Hasson and Kitchi pull the boats from the water and onto shore before they too follow the group to the village.

After about twenty minutes of walking the trees begin to clear making way for the pathways and huts of the village, many wilds within it going about their daily life, though the majority of the pack are wolves there are many other species of animal there as well, male and female, young and old and of all kinds of colours making up the wild tribe that lived hidden behind the forest of ice that circled them.

Each and every one of the animals within the village including the warriors that had brought them here, carrying the mark of the raven with a wolf’s head upon their chest, the mark of Raven Wolf, the cursed tribe.

The warriors that had come to retrieve them finally take the skulls they wore as masks off of them, there no need for them to wear them now that they were back home in the safe and familiar village.

Kitchi takes the skull off of his head, revealing himself to be a wolf with a white face and underbelly, while his back and the top of his head were a light brown, specks of brown dappling  the two colours together and making it look as if he had freckles all over his face. He stretches his shoulders back taking a deep breath of air, he rather happy to be free of warriors mask. “Am I glad to finally have that thing off! I don’t know how you guys can stand it, it’s so stuffy.”

Hasson, the brown wolf that towered above the others looks down at him. “After a few more battles with it you’ll get used to it.”

Kitchi lets out a sigh as he nods his head. “Right dad...”

Eve is staring at Eleven, though she couldn’t exactly put her finger on where she was sure that she had seen her somewhere before.

Teddy looks to make this recognition too, he leaning toward Iuana and questioning her about it. “Is it just me, or does Eleven look strikingly similar to Magellan.”

Iuana frowns at the name, that not a person she wanted to remember, she blurting out her answer to Teddy before storming off into the village leaving the rest of the group. Eleven a beautiful and strong warrior while Zack Magellan was positively one of the worst things alive. “Not in the least!”

Kitchi watches her leave, he gasping as he quickly chases after her. “Iuana wait! What are you so worked up about? Are you still mad over what Tahki said to you?”

Teddy watches them leave, he looking from them and toward Yula, who was right now taking in his surroundings in a stunned silence, he looking back to Eve. “Well... we got Yula here safe, what do we do now?”

Eve shrugs her shoulders. “I don’t know... all I do know it that I’ve most likely been fired!” She looks over to Teddy. “And that you without a doubt have been fired...”

Teddy lets out a heavy sigh, this certainly not looking well for him. He would most likely be thrown in jail for the rest of his life if he were to return to the city. “I can’t go back that’s for sure...” He looks out toward the village in the direction that Iuana had gone in. “Iuana mentioned that I should stay here with her.”

Tahki’s voice interrupts them. “Iuana extended an invitation out to you to join our pack?”

Teddy nods his head as he looks over to Tahki. “Yeah... I guess... why? Is that a bad thing?”

Eve turns toward Tahki, her jaw dropping in shock as she steps forward up to Tahki and looks her over, the woman standing before her having a thin tail, large round ears and very petite face, her dark brown fur short and not thick with layers like the other members of Raven wolf, this woman not a wild, or even a wolf. “You’re a mouse!?”

Tahki frowns at Eve’s realization. “Is there some kind of a problem?” She takes a step forward Eve backing up. “Do you think that just because I’m a mouse that I can’t possibly be a member of Raven Wolf?” She holds her hand toward Eleven who happened to be a skunk. “Eleven is not a wolf, is that going to bother you too?” She holds her hand out to another wild, this one a large bear. “Machk is a bear! Does that mean that he can’t possibly be a member of Raven wolf?”

Eve quickly tries to explain. “No, no, I’m just surprised because Iuana said that you were the strongest warrior, I didn’t think that the most powerful warrior in the Raven Wolf pack would be a-”

Tahki’s frown grows even deeper. “Do you think that mice make poor warriors?”

Eve tries to save herself, she really unsure of how to do that at this point. “No! I just... the majority of the tribe is... so it would only be natural for me to expect you to be a wolf- I mean a wild! But you’re a domestic aren’t you?”

Shiya steps between the two pushing Tahki back from Eve. “Calm down Tahki it’s nothing to get worked up over.”

Tahki growls under her breath while turning away from Eve and walking away, Shiya looking around him for his daughter not spotting her anywhere. “Where’s Iuana?”

Teddy motions toward the village. “She went into the village already.”

Shiya smiles at both Eve and Teddy holding his arms out on either side of him as he spoke to them in a friendly tone of voice. “Well no need to stand outside the village waiting for an invitation. You two are responsible for rescuing both my son and daughter and returning them home! You are more than welcome here.”

Kit laughs as he runs up to Teddy and Eve. “Oh wow you two are like superheroes then!”

Eve crosses her arms shaking her head. “I hardly think that we’re anything like that.”

Tahki looks over to Shiya as she beings speaking to him while holding her hand out to Teddy. “Iuana has extended an invitation to him to join our pack, are you aware of this?”

Shiya looks back to Teddy having not actually heard of it, a rather uncertain look on his face. “Really? Well... I suppose it is to be expected...” He lets out a sigh as he holds his hand out to Teddy. “Tahki, Teddy is a warrior, see to it that you make use of him.”

Tahki frowns at Teddy before looking back to Shiya. “He’s blind in one eye, and his uniform is that of nothing more than a security guard.”

Teddy frowns quickly speaking up in his defence. “I’m a soldier that was demoted to this position, and the eye thing was taken care of a long time ago, I can see out of it just fine despite what everyone seems to think.” He stares at her, though he was defending himself he was at the same time impressed that she was able to tell the difference between military uniforms, she the first to actually label him as a security guard without first having to be told.

Tahki narrows her eyes, words like that not what would convince her. “I will decide if you are a warrior or not.”

Shiya shakes his head looking way from her and out toward the village, searching for the one that he had sent message of their arrival to. “Where is Achak? He should be here.”

Yula runs over to Teddy and Eve, his body trembling in excitement as he tries to keep still, his tail unable to stop wagging. “Teddy, Miss. Cadrey! Look at this place! Look at these people! This is great!!” He looks back to them. “I mean it’s not as big and fantastic as the city but for some reason it feels almost a hundred times better!!”

Eve smiles at Yula as he turns away from them running back toward the village, the usually quiet mannered wolf unable to be perfectly silent and behaved like he had been taught to be at the laboratory, this at least proving that their journey to bring Yula here back to his people was indeed worth it. “I’ve never seen him this happy before.”

Yula’s excited search of the village comes to a stop when he sees someone, a scruffy dark grey wolf, who is right now kneeling on the ground with his hand on his chin and a serious stare on his face as he looks two leaves over, a puzzled look on his face as his eyes move from one leaf to the other. The leaves looking similar to the other, it looking as if he was trying to tell them apart, he having a lot of trouble doing it.

Yula kneels down across from him, also staring at the two leaves as he tries to figure out what the point to doing this was. He looks from the leaves and up to the wolf who still had all his concentration on these two objects. “Excuse me... but what are you doing?”

The wolf doesn’t look up as he continues to stare. “Trying to figure out which one is the one that helps heal wounds faster and which one causes fur loss, rashes and itching... I got it mixed up the last time and the people that I was supposed to be healing got very angry at me...”

Yula looks back down to the leaves, they indeed looking very similar. “Is there another way of telling them apart other than just what they look like?”

The wolf frowns thinking the information over. “Now that you mention it... Shiya did say something along those lines... that there are other ways to tell them apart then just how they look.” He picks one of the leaves up, looking it over from back to front and then taking a bite out of it, he chewing on it for a moment before spitting it out and yelling. “This one tastes itchy!!”

Yula stares at him with his mouth hanging open, even he wouldn’t have done something like that. “Eating it wasn’t exactly what I had in mind when I suggested that...”

The scruffy wolf begins spitting on the ground trying to get the taste out of his mouth, he stopping when he sees Yula out of the corner of his eye, quickly looking to him, letting out a gasp as he grabs onto his shoulders and pulls his face closer to his talking in a breathless whisper of disbelief. “White eyes! You’re the oracle!!”

Yula gives a nervous smile. “Yeah...”

Shiya spots the two of them, he calling out to the strange wolf that Yula is with. “Achak!”

The scruffy grey wolf’s ears perk up, he letting go of Yula and sitting up, and staring in the direction that he had heard his name being called. “Ah! Chieftain! You’re back!” He is about to run forward but stops, stepping back for a moment and spinning in a circle on all fours as he searches the ground for something, finding and picking up an odd looking staff in his mouth before running over to Shiya on his hands and feet like a dog. “I didn’t realize you had gotten back already.”

Shiya looks away from him holding his hand out to Teddy. “He has some wounds that need to be tended to and-” He stops talking when he looks back to see Achak turned to the side with his tongue sticking out while wiping it with his hand. “...what are you doing?”

Achak quickly closes his mouth and turns back Shiya a grin on his face. “Nothing.” He quickly turns to the side spitting, turning back to Shiya in hopes that he wouldn’t have noticed.

Shiya looks over to Yula calling him over. “Yula, if you could come here for a moment.”

Yula picks up the second leaf that Achak had not eaten before running up to Shiya. “Yeah?”

Shiya has an uncertain look on his face as he holds his hand to Yula, getting back to what he had been trying to do regardless of Achak’s odd behaviour. “This is Yula... my son and the tribes oracle that went missing long ago. I need you be his guide with that, explain to him his tasks as an oracle and help him will you?”

Achak nods his head, happy to be of help. “Of course!”

Shiya motions toward Eve and Teddy so that they would come as well, he introducing Achak to all of them. “This is Achak, our pack’s medicine man. If you have any questions of the deep and spiritual nature, you go to him.”

Eve stares at Achak, he right now wiping his tongue off with his hands, she unsure how to react to the sight. “Are you sure...?”

Shiya looks back at him, Achak instantly stopping what he had been doing and grinning at him, Shiya turning back to the others as he continues with his explanation. “He is also the one you go to if you are wounded or ill.”

Yula speaks up happily as he holds out the leaf. “Oh! So that’s why he was trying to figure out which one of the two leaves was the one that helped heal wounds faster.”

Shiya looks back to the leaf that Yula is holding, he then looking to Achak. “You were still doing that? I told you to do that days ago.”

Achak nods his head as he holds his hand out explaining. “Yes, well you were pretty angry with me over the mix up that happened a few days ago, so you handed them to me and told me not to do anything else until I could figure out the difference between the two.”

Shiya nods his head remembering that. “Yes I did... and you were still-” He pauses for a moment thinking over the strange actions he had been doing. “Wait, you didn’t eat one of them did you?”

Achak spits on the ground again before looking back to Shiya. “No.”

A tired look fills Shiya’s face. “You did eat one.”

“No I said that I didn’t.”

Shiya sighs as he looks back to Teddy and Eve, continuing with the introduction despite this. “He is... somewhat new to the profession. About half a year ago Achak’s father died leaving him to take his place as our Shaman.” He looks back to Achak who is right now gagging from having stuck his hand to far back in his mouth. “He’s not picking up as fast as we would like him to... so, just bare with him, and... try not to get hurt.”

Achak runs up next to Teddy looking him over. “So you’re the one that’s hurt right?”

Teddy nods his head yes. “Unfortunately...”

Achak finds the wounds that had been covered up to prevent them from getting infected, one on Teddy’s shoulder with the other on his leg, both received when facing Zack while trying to escape the city. “Bullet wounds is it? I get lots of those.” He pauses thinking of what he said, he looking back to Teddy. “Not personally! I never leave the village to get shot. I mean the other warriors, if they come back wounded then it’s usually because of that.”

Achak frowns as he turns away from Teddy and starts bounding away on all fours toward a building in the village. “I’m not exactly the best at bullet wounds... you think I would be better with the amount I’ve dealt with.” He turns around motioning for Teddy to follow him when he finds that he is still standing there. “Well come on, you’re not going to get better just by standing around and doing nothing.” He spits on the ground a couple of more times before continuing on his way.

Teddy sighs as he reluctantly begins to follow him, Yula too joining Teddy and following the strange wolf. Achak after all supposed to instruct him on everything there was to being an oracle.

One of the wolves in the village approaches Shiya giving him a message. “Chief, Elder Chogan wishes to speak with you immediately.”

Shiya groans obviously not excited to talk to this person. “Of course he does...” He looks back to Eve. “If you will excuse me.”

Eve watches Shiya leave, she sighing to herself as she looks around her, everyone that she was right now familiar with gone. “Great, now what am I supposed to do?”

Eleven smiles at her while offering a suggestion. “If you would like I can get you some clean and dry clothes to change into. The ones you’re wearing and worn and dirty from you journey, as well as wet from the fog you had to travel through.”

Eve looks back to her. “You know that does sound nice, I’m really not used to wearing the same thing for more than one day so changing into something else would be great.”

*******


Achak is humming to himself as he goes through several plants, roots, powders, ointments and other very random things, he grabbing something here and there until he has what he needs seating himself on the ground in front of a bowl placing everything in it and beginning to crush it together.

Yula sits next to Teddy as he watches him undress his wounds, Teddy sitting up on a cot within the building. “So do you really think this will help you heal faster?”

Teddy looks back to Yula. “Who knows, if it doesn’t then at least the rest will help, the constant traveling we were doing was hardly the best conditions to be attempting to heal under.”

Achak approaches Teddy taking some of the mixture he had made and placing it on the bullet wound on Teddy’s right shoulder, Teddy letting out a yelp of pain. “That stuff hurts!”

Achak nods his head that to be expected. “That’s normal.” He pauses. “Wait... what kind of hurt?”

Teddy holds his hand over the wound. “What kind of pain? One that burns I guess.”

Achak look back down to what he had mixed. “Humm... that’s not right then. It’s supposed to sting not burn.” He turns away from Teddy, returning to what he had gathered and trying to figure out where he had went wrong.

Teddy falls back into the cot he is in, this ordeal not a very likable one, Yula looking back at Teddy a little concerned. “Do you think he knows what he’s doing?”

Teddy shakes his head. “I don’t know, usually people don’t get this odd and crazy until they’re much older.”

Achak returns to Teddy’s side placing some of the new mixture he had made at the wound, Teddy flinching as he grinds his teeth trying not to yell, Achak looking back to his face. “How is that one? Stinging?”

Teddy nods his head yes. “Yeah, that’s defiantly stinging ow.”

Achak smiles proudly to himself, placing more on the wound. “Great! Only the second try that’s a personal best!” He frowns when Teddy flinches again. “Stop flinching! You’re warrior aren’t you? So act like it!” Teddy glares at him annoyed, Achak nervously taking a step back. “But don’t bite me alright? I dislike that.”

Yula laughs as he looks over to Achak. “You’re pretty funny.”

Achak looks back to Yula. “Not intentionally funny...” He smiles at Yula. “...but thank you. Usually I just tend to make people angry. Veeeeeeeeeeeeery angry... even the mild tempered Shiya has been known to get annoyed with me.”

Teddy nods his head. “Yeah I can see why!”

Achak pushes Teddy’s head down. “Hush you! You heal faster when you’re quiet and not harassing the one healing you!” He moves down to the next wound on Teddy’s leg putting ointment on that as well, Teddy flinching again, Achak growling at him as he holds his leg down. “Stop moving! You’re going to make me mess up! I do that well enough on my own thank you very much, your help is not needed!”

Teddy pulls his leg away from him once Achak has finished. “Oh, that’s very reassuring.”

Achak gives Teddy an unhappy frown as he turns away from him obviously insulted, he bounding back on all fours to his collection of ingredients and gathering several more things up starting to mix something new, returning to Teddy and handing him a bowl of liquid. “Drink this.”

Teddy does as he is told, almost gagging and spitting it out, Teddy having a difficult time swallowing it, having to keep himself from upchucking several times before finally forcing it down. “That was terrible!”

Achak nods his head as he returns to the side of the tent all his ingredients were. “Yes I suspect so.”

“What is that horrible tasting stuff supposed to do?”

Achak begins sorting through a vase of black feathers. “Nothing actually, it’s just supposed to taste bad.”

Teddy frowns threatening to throw the bowl at him. “Why you!” A odd look fills his face as his eye roll back in his head, Teddy letting out a whimper before his body flops down motionless upon the cot he was laying on.

Achak quickly turns back to Teddy. “Uh oh...”

Yula looks Teddy over while Achak bounds up to his bedside once more, looking him over and poking him. “Humm...” He lifts himself over Teddy, places his head on him and turning his ear against his chest listening to his heart beat, he then looking back to Yula. “No worries, he’s still alive. Just sleeping.” He picks up the bowl he had given to Teddy. “Now... to figure out what I did to him...”

Raven Wolf - 02 - The Oracle - Chapter 06
Raven Wolf - 02 - The Oracle - Chapter 08
Book 2 in the Raven Wolf series.

Due to human negligence the world as we know it has ended and been reborn. The animal spirits that guide man giving them the forms of animals so that they would be able to survive in this new wilderness. Though now carrying the form of beasts man has not forgotten the place they once had, as an existence greater then just what nature wanted of them, an existence above all.

Those that worked to gain their humanity are known as domestics, while those who wished to follow the rolls the spirits had given them were known as wilds. Both groups grew arrogant and hateful of one another, the wilds saw the domestics as selfish monsters, for they were returning to the ways that had once destroyed the world, while the domestics saw the wilds as primitive beings afraid of progress, they no better than wild animals.

The raven and the wolf spirits grew tired of the destruction and fighting, and sided with the wilds in their ideals, the domestics only capable of further destroying nature. In their anger they marked a tribe of wilds with a curse, they being removed from the sacred circle of life, unable to hunt or grow their own food, their souls never able to move on while their bodies are unable to return to the earth when they died. The curse upon them only broken once the domestics are gone once and for all. The cursed tribe now known to all by the name of the spirits whom cursed them. ‘Raven Wolf’
