„For every minute you are angry, you lose 60 seconds of happiness.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
None of us really changes over time. We only become more fully what we are.

Welcome To the Arrow Clans
Welcome to the written recollections of the Arrow lycan clans and their tales. The Arrow clans descended from legends surrounding that of the grey wolves of the Americas in association with the turn of the twentieth century when humans evolved and relocated over from Northern Europe. It was the age of the warmest climates known to hit land, as well as Apollo and his need for the animal nature that all gods share. Appointed the animal of his choice, the lycan wolf, sometimes Americanized by humans as a “quickhatch”, symbolized strength and power. Apollo found it his desire to bring forth the age of man and wolf to one accord.
Inside these archived stories is the discovery that love and war, hate and power, laughter and sadness, all follow the best of us in life.
The Sword Lycan Clan resides in the northern part of the Americas and holds pride in that the opposing forces are tamed to a minimal, meaning vampires. Whereas the Arrow Lycan Clan is headquartered in the southern corner of the Carolinas where unfavorably, they have been plagued with rivaling forces that continually multiply. Stationed all over the deep south, the Arrow lycan clans maintain order among the supernatural world and its borders continually angling to join their northern counterparts into more peaceful times.
At one time, human witches were their enemies to what the early Indians termed a quickhatch, or werewolf but more often were allied and simultaneously working together. They have learned to live in silent protest to one another’s existence though very often ignored and left to die at the hand of another.
Vampires, at present, are the only danger to the human and lycan races. History had them servants to others before the bloodlust turned to something savage and less human. That was nearly a decade ago. Most of Europe has been contained and refuse admittance to harboring the American lycan clans again until it is managed to the same satisfaction. Allowing them a return sets the continent back, not forward. Among the skill set of exterminating vampire vermin, the lycans live out their lives with the same emotional pulses that humans partake in with the added drive that their wolf makes them two-dimensional. Without their wolf and the laws they live by, a lycan cannot survive. It is for this reason that the first and foremost rule of the clan is to find their mate at the earliest possible. Man cannot live by man alone. Incidentally, their bodies will only allow a mating at the age of eighteen, the time an alpha comes into position for taking the role. All other lycans take the same law, as in accordance to their alpha. In addition, a female has to be of age thereby making her mate possibly unaware at his crossing.
Without a mate, a lone wolf turns angry and spiteful to his brother. A lone wolf does not survive. Wars have been started by them. Vampires will never be the largest threat to the lycan race. A lone male wolf is its own worst enemy.
