Pack wolves are, tough still wolves, more or less the opposite of Lone Ones. They are proud, just like those, but more willing to adapt to new situations.
Pack wolves live in big groups, usually existing out of 7 to 15 wolves depending on how much food and territory sources there are available. Packs are, unlike Lone One groups, very well organized. There is an ever-changing hierarchy among those animals. The oldest animals (usually a male and a female) keep the pack together and organize everything. These are usually seen as leaders, but the word "parents" is more appropriate here, as almost always the rest of the pack that isn't these dominant ones are their offspring, and, thus, logically ranked "lower", just like with human families. There is one special ranked wolf that dedicated their life to Shinwa. These are often older and wiser wolves, but can also be young ones.
Because packs are much larger than Lone One groups, they usually claim bigger territories with bigger prey. They sometimes eat small prey, but since they are with a lot of wolves, they usually leave the rabbits and wild fowls to the Lone Ones, and get territories where bigger animals live, like roes or even red deer. These prey are harder to take down, but since packs are very well organized they manage. It is way harder for a group of Lone Ones to even take down a small roe.
They healthy diet makes pack wolves usually very big and strong, especially compared to Lone Ones. Pack wolves are usually only Eurazian wolves, since they are very used to living in a pack. Red wolves are usually more solitary, so it is more common that red wolves are Lone Ones, tough then can live in packs.
More often than not, Lone Ones get mistaken for loners. Loners, however, are Pack Wolves that left their pack and did not choose to become a Lone One.
Loners that choose the Lone One life will usually seek a mate that's already a Lone One and live their way, which eventually makes the loner classify as a Lone One, while Pack Wolves that live on their own but don't act like Lone Ones, are loners. These are mostly youngsters who have the desire to start a Pack, and therefore also look up a Pack Wolf mate.
There are, of course, exceptions, but this is almost always the case.
Relationships with Lone onesEdit
Packs will usually stay off Lone One territory. They don't need it, because Lone Ones pick territories that are mostly inhabited by small animals to hunt. When they meet, they will just ignore the Lone Ones. The Lone Ones themselves, however, might respond more aggressively.
Lone Lone Ones will mostly be allowed to pass through pack territory, unless the Lone One steals big prey or are a threat to the pack or territory (aggressiveness, disease, etc.).
Relationship with Rufus' clanEdit
Since Packs are willing to renovate their life styles, lots of packs have joined Rufus. He controls almost an entire mountain, and thus it's territories. He divided the mountain lands in many different territories where the animals of his clan can live, without getting attacked by strangers. The packs do think that this is a way more peaceful way of living, than the life where one territory is controlled by one pack, and where others keep conquering, so lots of them joined Rufus. However, not all of them do agree, so there are also many that fled away instead of joining.
