"Look it might seem weird and fucking strange but a firefly told me that you can help me and that whatever your seeking has to do with what I am seeking. So if you help me find the ones who murdered my daughter I will you with whatever you need to do".

"Ok," Breaks easily agreed. She didn't need to think about it; Firefly had obviously already chosen him so whatever he needed to do was fine. "I think there's another one or maybe two out there."

"Do you know your moon or your Tribe?"

Aleta looks at Marcus "Yes, we are all Garau or as the legends say, werewolves. There are good ones and bad ones along with other horrors out there. We do what we can to protect people. We can sense it in your blood though Breaks here is better at it them me, I am just more of a hacker really.

"I was once told to remember two things that could help me identify myself with others like me... Ahroun and Get of Fenris. But whatever I am trained in close combat martial arts, I am former SWAT agent. Although I know how to use a weapon my specialty really is close combat. That is as a human, as a werewolf? no idea but I guess is the same".

"So, you're seriously telling me that this is all real? All this werewolves and nonsense is actually true?" Vince shook his head in disbelief. "Fine, let's assume for a moment I believe you, what's the next step? What do we have to do?"

Breaks-the-Chains smiled at Marcus' admission. "There's nothing stronger than a pack of warriors! There must be dangerous enemies ahead of us for Firefly to call so many of us."

"There is an art thing that we need to bring to a sept. Firefly knows where it is."

She asked Marcus "Are you a member of a sept? Did you complete your Adulthood challenge?"

"I think I did couple of things like that before I went on my own. Since all the missions they kept sending me to had nothing to do with my daughter. Once I find who did it and take my vengeance I can think of other stuff. Nobody is going to dare touch the ones I love ever again after I am done with them. All I know is that they are like us".

She looks at Marcus "So, I am not a warrior. Breaks is. I am a Glasswalker, one of the few clans that loves the city. So I am also not much of a woods type, again that is Breaks. But I am the leader if we are not in combat. So Vince, we need to help you learn your true heritage."

"Someone really needs to explain what the fuck everyone is talking about. What is a Glass Walker? Ahroun? Get of Debris I can sort of puzzle out, but not what that means. What the absolute fuck are you all talking about? Oh, and Adulthood challenge? I've a damned adult for years."

Aleta glares at Breaks "I am the Glasswalker, remember, we are not really up on such things. " she sighs and looks at Vince "OK, the Earth is Gaia, the great mother. We Garou or werewolves are the protectors of the earth against the Wyrm, the destroyer. Some say all technology is of the Wyrm but my tribes believes in using it against the Wyrm to even the odds. There is a prophesy of a great  Apocalypse that will be a final battle. We try to stave off the final battle to keep people as safe as possible."

Vince shakes his head, He was hoping for a more detailed explanation. "I hope that is the super condensed version and you have more to tell me?" He grumbled, "Fine, let's go, show me what you have to show me, teach me what I need to know so I can go back to doing what I want."

Breaks-the-Chains decided to try to add some information, "The Great Mother created everything and she made a way to keep it all in balance- like having the right balance between predator and prey. There is the Weaver which wants everything to be the same- like fish frozen in a pond. There is the Wrym which wants everything to be destroyed- like a great bear that hunts fish. And there is the Wyld which is..."

Breaks trailed off; her metaphors rarely worked out.

"It makes the fish get born and grow."

"When they were in balance, everything was as it should be. But the Wyrm is out of balance and is trying to destroy everything. And the Weaver is making more things stuck in one form- like cities. The Wyld has less power and can't keep the balance. So we are trying to bring back the balance. But there is a prophecy that the world will end. I don't know it, but I'm sure Firefly does. I wonder where she is."

Breaks went on to another subject, "At first, all the Garou that the Great Mother created were in the same pack, but then they split up and each formed their own Tribe that was different from each other and lived in different parts of the world. Get of Fenris is a Tribe, Glasswalkers is a Tribe. I was taught by the Uktena Tribe, but I'm not part of that Tribe."

"The moon that you are born under determines what is in your heart. We are mostly Ahroun which are the warriors. Song-keepers like Aleta keep the songs and stories. There are others too."

Firefly appeared out of nowhere to tell the Prophecy of the Phoenix:

Phoenix took me.

Carried me in his claws.

High above the world.

So that I could see beyond tomorrow.

And I looked.

I beheld the future.

I saw the death of many of our relations. Hunted beyond hunting, death beyond death, to the last one. There were no more children, or grandchildren, or fathers, or mothers. This was the first Sign of the Phoenix gave to me, that the Children of the Weaver, the Homids, would give to us, the Garou.

I looked.

I beheld the future.

I saw the Children of the Weaver birthing. A great tide of Humans rising. I saw more and more, until Gaia groaned at having to carry them all. Their houses overrunning, their rakes raping, their hands clawing at the parched earth, trying to feed off her. This was the second Sign of the last days, that Phoenix showed me, that the Humans would do.

I looked again.

I beheld the third Sign.

So many. So many children. So many homids. And they fell against each other, one to one, and the Wyrm brought forth corruption and made them each take a little. And their strange Fire I saw, out of control, the great Plume rising over the wilderness, spreading death wherever it went in that dark and cold land. And I heard the agony of the sea as She keened, for some drunken fool poured a lake of black death out upon her.

I turned my head away in disgust, but I could not help but look again.

I beheld then the fourth Sign.

The Wyrm grew powerful, its wings fanning the breezes of decay. It spread its diseases and they were horrible: killing the Herd with diseases of the head and the blood. Children were born twisted. Animals fell sick and no one could cure them. In these final days, even the Warriors of Gaia could not escape the palsied talons of the sickness-bringing deathbird.

A tear in my eye, I looked again and then Phoenix showed me the fifth Sign.

I saw other plumes rising like death-spears towards the beautiful sky, piercing it, letting Father Sun burn and parch Her. The air grew hot; even in the darkness of Winter it was warm. The plants withered in the sun. A cry of pain and disease came up from the dying forests; as one the relations cried tears of mourning.

Then, it was as a veil was torn, and the sixth Sign showed itself to me:

In these last days, Gaia will shake in rage. Fire will boil from the depths. Ash will coat the sky. The Wyrm skulks in the shadows made by these... and rears to strike. The old ones are all gone, the Guardians of the Pathways and the Crossroads are finished. In these final days, the sixth Sign will make itself known in the Packs that form. Each Pack will unto itself have a Quest, a Sacred Journey they must perform. Such is the will of the Weaver, and such is the will of Gaia, the Phoenix told me.

And I saw the sky turn black, and the moon was as blood.

And the seventh Sign I glimpsed, though I could not look on it in full. But its heat I could feel.

The Apocalypse. The final days of the world. The Moon became swallowed by the Sun, and it burned in His belly. Unholy fires fell to the ground, burning us all, twisting us and making us cough blood. The Wyrm made itself manifest in the towers and the rivers and the air and the land and everywhere its children ran rampant, devouring, destroying, calling down curses of every kind. And the Herd ran in fear. And the Dark Ones, children of the Wyrm, walked the streets in the day.

I turned my head from the sight. The Phoenix told me: "This is as it shall be, but not as it should."

The Phoenix left me then.

Now, I cannot dream. I can only remember the Signs, each one in perfect detail. These are the last days. May Gaia have mercy on us.

Vince looks a little shell shocked at the appearance and pronouncements of Firefly. Aleta's words bring him back to reality, "So, what now?"

Firefly answered, "A sept has information you will need, but they will not give it away. If you can recover a stolen artifact and convince them that you are serious about your mission, they may be willing to talk to you."

"It is a spear tipped with a dragon's tooth, carved with glyphs. It glows in the presence of Ahroun and bites creatures of the Wyrm with the ferocity of whoever wields it. It is hidden and guarded beneath a school library; no one there knows of its presence. You can either enter the library and search for it or go through the steam tunnels to reach it."

Marcus sighed, taking notes himself of all this. He was quiet but that was how he thought of stuff. "We can always take my car" he sighed and stood up looking at his hand and taking a deep breath, "If this power can help me slay those who took my daughters life I am all for learning it. If you can help me then I am all for helping you first. So... when do we leave?".

"We can go now," she shrugged. "There's no reason to stay here."

"No... I got all the info I needed from the reason I came here. The father of the bride had some info of the murderers he saw man with masks of beasts and glowing eyes" he sighed standing up and walking over to the car. "The old camaro out on the parking is mine, I will wait for you there".
