Wolf Ranks

Post by Guest on Thu Nov 05, 2015 1:27 am

High Ranks

Alphas: The leader of the pack the main one in control, who also sets the laws of the pack. They are not required to hunt with the pack, but most normally do. They demand respect and are in the position to exile, banish, or even kill those who do not show it. Though it is rare, this position can be challenged and if the challenger wins the fight than the challenger, being the new alpha, can do what he/she pleases with the previous leaders. This does not normally happen because it would result in a huge change within the pack. Only two per pack.

Beta: The second-in-command and enforces the law when the current alpha is not present. If both alphas die than the beta(s) takes the alpha's position and leads the pack... unless the alpha has said otherwise. This position cannot be challenged without the alpha's approval. Only two per pack.

Sentinels: There are four sentinels, two mated pairs, in the pack. Each pair is specially chosen by the alphas and betas. They train the sentinels to take their places if anything should happen to them. The sentinels, since becoming one can start as early as one year, don't usually have authority over the pack unless the alpha or beta have publicly given it to them. They are respected though. Messing with a sentinel is messing with the alphas and betas themselves. This rank cannot be challenged whatsoever.

Elders: These members of the pack are seven years and older and are filled with wisdom and renowned strength. They are the ones that the alphas normally go to for advice. If are wise, the elders are the only ones to whom the alphas may submit themselves to. The are respected as much as the alphas by the entire pack.

Assassins: This position is given only to a changer and is the most fitting name for this rank because it is self-explanatory--they are the spies. There can be a total of three assassins in each pack.

Low Ranks

Lead Warrior: The lead warrior takes orders directly from the alpha and sometimes the beta. They are the main leader, general, or captain of the warriors in the pack. There is only one.

Warriors: The amount of warriors depends on the size of the pack: for a small one, there can be up to 5 and for a much larger, there can be up 15. Warriors are the guardians and protectors of the pack. They will roam the pack lands to ensure it's safety. They are also the ones that will keep watch at night and must be quick to think and remain calm in any given situation.

Lead Hunter: The lead hunter is the one who leads the hunts and is the only one in the pack. Whoever becomes a hunter must be quick to think as well.

Hunters: Like the warriors, the amount of hunters depends on the size of the pack. Every member of the pack, however, hunts but these are the main hunters.

Lead Scout: The lead scout is the leader of the scouts.

Scouts: The scouts are the scavengers of the pack and will hunt small creatures; and will also help survey the land with the warriors.

Pup Watchers: These are the pup-sitters of the pack and will keep watch over them when the others may be out hunting or in conflict. Don't be fooled into thinking that they are weak and soft. On the contrary, the pup-watchers can be the most vicious members of the pack, as long as you don't mess with their pups. They only watch pups up until the age of nine months. There is only up to about three pup watchers in a pack regardless of the size.

Subordinates: These are the non-ranked members of the pack, but will still participate in fighting and hunting.

Omega: The omegas are the lowest of the low in the pack, lower than the subordinates. Don't be surprised if they don't receive much respect or any at all. They are only placed in this position if they've done anything to disrespect the alpha and sometimes a new member may be placed with this rank if the alpha is a bit mistrustful of them.

Pups: I'm pretty sure that this is self-explanatory.

Rogues: These wolves aren't even part of any pack but simply on their own. They don't follow any pack laws and customs.
