It pains us to see the degradation of the werewolf race. There is much nobility in them, but as with many species, wisdom is something that each individual member must slowly grow into. The cruelty of their kind is that their young are filled with such rage and idiocy that they will not live long enough to grow into their wisdom.

Heeding to this blood call is a prime example.

Through the old blind one, you have seen what they might have been. When all the werewolves die - they will - at least there will be one good memory that extends beyond those cloistered in the Urals.

I hate animals. It's so much easier to make people do what you want. I understand your impulse to "distinguish" out there, but I hope you're not doing it for my benefit. A werewolf is a werewolf. Don't expect me to have a soft spot for the old blind ones.

I'm assuming the vamps want the old werewolf dead because of his wisdom or influence or whatever. Hopefully the attention he's garnering will free you up a little.

Fun fact: The werewolf population is expected to drop by 60% over the next three generations. I think we can fast-track those estimates.

The way they treat their blind and elderly confirms my suspicions of the werewolf race. I have never heeded to those sentimentalists who decry their imminent extinction. Endangered indeed. We are all in danger.

Let us not patronise their kind by disregarding their freedom of choice. They have clearly responded to the call of the vampire army and merit the consequences.

I fully encourage you to deal with the vampire army and all of its mongrel divisions.

Dialogue

Introduction

Traian: I scented you.
Traian: You were different from the others.
Traian: You have the smell of honey-sweet, of the world tree on you.
Traian: There is only madness, death-black, in these Carpathians.
Traian: I know the scent of death well.
Traian: Our kind is born into a dying breed.
Traian: There is no refuge for us with wolf or man.
Traian: So the young hunger for violence on any master's battlefield.
Traian: If we last to be long-toothed,
Traian: then the killing taste fades.
Traian: We feel the call, a great moon howl.
Traian: To be far away from here. An elder place.
Traian: Where we are safe from you and you are safe from us.
Traian: I slept many winters alone until these ones came for my skin.
Traian: Sent by vampire masters. When I tore out their throats, it burned on my tongue.
Traian: Made me sick. The madness is inside them.
Traian: The killing taste is inside me.
Traian: It whispers: slaughter them all.
Traian: But if the leaders were culled, the pack might be spared.
Traian: So the pack might still find the place where the long-toothed go.
