    The Dreamer last edited by fesak on 08/01/20 02:29AM View full history

    The origin story of Argent (from Grendel), beginning in the 1600s among the Algonkin Native American tribe in Canada.

    Argent was born as a Algonkin named Never-Cries. His best friend was Wind-in-the Leaves. He started having mysterious dreams of death at eleven, and was renamed Dream-Picker. The ineffective tribe shaman, Dog Leg, and his assistant, Eagle Scratch, made things hard on him, but he mostly enjoyed life with Wind-in-the-Leaves--although he dreamed of her death along with everyone else's.

    He grew older and went on his spirit quest, where he starved himself in the wilderness, hoping to find a spirit animal. However, he only found Maslun, the wolf spirit of death. In his spirit-dream, it devoured him. When he awoke, he was very weak. He managed to make it back to his village, but others got sick too. Dog Leg treated them with bad medicine, and they died, but everyone blamed Dream-Picker. He was banished.

    He lived alone through the harsh winter, but Wind-in-the-Leaves finally joined him. She told him that the sickness had become worse in the village, and Dog Leg said that she must be sacrificed in order to save everyone else. Dream-Picker screamed to the gods in fury that he would do anything for the power of vengeance against those who threatened Wind-in-the-Leaves.

    Wind-in-the-Leaves shared a final night with him, and they slept together. Dream-Picker dreamed of Maslun once again. The tribe came in the night and took them captive, then sacrificed Wind-in-the-Leaves. Dream-Picker passed out, then transformed into Argent the Wolf and slaughtered everyone in the village.
