Clan Name: Blackwater
Status: Always seeking new Warriors
The Clan history is told in two parts. The old Blackwater and the new Black water. Named for the black waters of the river the clan was founded by Blackwater was founded when a young Aural named Jinx and his timid mate walked into the dense pine forest Blackwater now calls home. Old Blackwater was a clan of equality and love. Jinx was always brave and caring. He was never hateful. But, one day, his mate died. The cause unknown and her unborn pups died along with her. This turned Jinx dark. He became hateful and spiteful and began using his power for terrible reasons.
The new Blackwater clan was founded in hate and darkness. The Aurals of a nearby territory became his minions. He killed the Alpha and took his mate. He gathers Aurals from all around and loners that wander in through his territory. Some, he gets withs speeches of glory and delusions of grandeur, that Blackwater will rise and be the strongest clan all the land. Others, the ones that he wants but don't want to join, he uses his Energy to wrap them up and pull them in. Blackwater is a feared clan, those who have territories near it have moved away in fear that Jinx will come to them.
In Jinx's ultimate scheme for power, he see's himself with the most powerful Energy Aurals. He'd been staking out one clan in particular. One clan with a male that had Lightning energy but it was mundane. Jinx could sense his power was weak, that he had not wanted it from the beginning. So, Jinx bided his time as this Aural had a mate heavy with pups. Rather than charge in there and take the female for himself, he decided to wait until they were born and grown just enough to be impressionable, but not small pups he would have to care for. So, he watched and waited until he was sure that one of them did in fact have Lightning Energy, the mark branding his flank like a blaring sign. So, Jinx readied his clan, knowing it would be easy to take them over. The pup hadn't been told anything, only that he was special. His power was unknown to him so he would not use it.
This was Jinx's mistake. Rook, the pup with Lightning Energy, destroyed his clan and ran off into the night. Jinx managed to drag himself back. He healed and he became ever bitter. His quest for more power became even hungrier. He became even more volatile and if the pups he mentored did not succeed, he killed them. If the Aurals he trained did not find the slightest trail of Rook, he killed them. Blackwater is a tumultuous place, filled with unease and danger. Some are there by choice and others are not. Join Blackwater or die leaving.
If you're week, you're an Omega, no matter what. All ranks must be strong. Healers, caretakers, it doesn't matter.
Omega's are used as servants. They are not allowed to gather, hunt, or dig for food, but they will be the ones to bring it to the more highly ranked Aurals.
Alpha is first! No matter what you're doing if the Alpha calls a meeting or gives an order his word is law or you're dead. The Alpha gets first dibs on meals, even if there is nothing left for anyone else. Hunters and Gatherers are pushed hard to find enough food for the clan, as Jinx takes in anyone he's see's fit, even if it's not by their own accord.
Every Aural treats their apprentice as they see fit and no other Aural is to interfere.
Location: In the darkest parts of the Eleri forest near the Aiah River, which is an important part of their clan and a food source.

Clan Members: Until I can get imports up for all of these Aural, I'll just give a brief description of how they look and several personality traits. These are just the main Aurals that will be taking part in my main story line. Blackwater has 30+ members because of Jinx's hoarding
Jinx - Alpha Male - Silver Smokey Blue; straight mane; Stag Horns - vindictive and tyrannical
Petra - Alpha Female - Banded Isabella Dun; Straight mane; Natural horns - She's strong willed, but not in Black water by her own accord. She tolerates little and can put up with a lot of Jinx's shit.
Deign - Female - chocolate; Punk mane, ram horns - small and timid, Deign is not typically what Jinx takes in. But, it's her knowledge of healing plants and ability to heal with her water energy that has kept her alive. She's kind of twittery and jumpy as well.
Skill points: 12
Skill Level: Novice
Points until Next Level: 35 (Intermediate)
Battle Points: 4
Retsu - Female - Silver Black; Curly Mane; unis horn - she's a dark sort and solitary. She does not like the company of others and joined Blackwater of her own free will. She realizes it was a mistake, but leaving is something she cannot do.
Scarling - Male - Flaxen Red Roan; Straight Mane; Natural Horns - He's always looking to give someone a hard time, Carran especially, because Carran beat him out of the job of searching for Rook. Scarling wants nothing more than to serve Jinx loyally and he was sure he'd be picked to go after his Alpha's enemy, but he wasn't and that started a bitter rivalry between the two.
Watch - Male - Creamy Silver Tobiano; Maneless; spiral horns - He's shifty and not to be trusted, but a friend of Carran's. He's kind of a wildcard and slips in and out of Jinx's control.
Garr - Male - Striped Gold Dun; Beast Mane; Scorpion horns - He's really just a dumb grunt. He's one of Scarlings cronies and follows him around like he knows what he's doing. He was the source of hours of amusement for Watch and Carran when they were pups.
Reyal - Female - Black Sabino - Straight Mane; Stag Horns - she's fast, nimble, and very clever. She opted to join Blackwater in order to see if she could do anything to help the Aurals within, but she's trapped and has realized that there is no hope.
Pin - Male - Orange and Black Bay Splash White; punk; natural horns - Mentally sound, but physically unstable. He's only alive because Reyal does most of the work and gives him credit. He's like a younger brother to her and she'd do anything to take care of him.
Cyprus - Female - Ticked Platinum; Curly Mane; Lunar Horns - She's worn down from taking care of pups all day, but despite being tired all the time and being stuck in Blackwater, she's always happy.
Lark - Male - Gold Black Backed; Vest Mane; Scorpion Horns - Would he rather be doing something else? Yes, but with the undying crush he has on Cyprus, being there to help her is the best he's got.
Rai - Male - Sooty Scarlet Pangare; Punk Mane; Ram horns - He's feisty and grouchy most of the time. He 's been known to take off ears of the Aurals who pester her. Kind of small for a male, so he feels the need to assert himself.
Echa - Male - Chocolate Sabino; Curly mane; stag horns - He's a good hunter, brave and caring. Most of the females in the clan think he's just the cats meow while the other males would like to bury him under several tons of dirt.
Akela - Female - Creamy Blue and Creamy Cold Point Roan; Straight Mane; Spiral Horns - She does what she's told and rarely steps out of line. She doesn't like conflict, but will fight if cornered.
Circe - Female - Creamy Silver Red; Straight Mane: Unis Horn - She's the female all the other females watch their mates around, as Circe is a pretentious flirt with no boundaries and careless attitude. She can also be quite dumb, whether it's on purpose or for real, no one knows.
- none at the moment-
-nil- As soon as an Aural of Blackwater becomes weak with age they are killed or chased off.
Enda and Adna (twins) - Maximum Sabino (completely white with blue eyes and pink noses; Maneless; Orb Horns; mismatched eyes; They are the personal servants of Jinx. They are both completely brainwashed and creepy. They are constantly out looking for trouble makers in the clan disobeying the Alpha's orders. Most in the clan avoid Enda and Adna like the plague.
Bora - Grullo Overo; Curly Mane; Natural Horns - She's quiet and unobtrusive. She does what she's told when she's told to do it and when she's unneeded she's difficult to find. Carran finds her easily and unintentionally favors her. She gets nervous around him, thinking that he favors her for a reason.
Juniper - he will probably be green; Punk mane, spiral horns (one is broken) - Just a nutter. A twitchy green nutter who likes to collect rocks. He's simple, but sweet and is an omega because he's mute and cannot sass back. So he scrambles around trying to do what everyone says. Bora has decoded Junipers silent language and keeps him in touch with the real world
