White Wisp â€“ Terra
White Wisp snorted bemusedly as she padded silently away from the heart of the fairy ring. Silly fey creatures, flocking to the man Edmund like he was some sort of savior. White Wisp had never known a more noble or inspiring human, true. In any other context he could be king. But not next to Miss Horera.
As a silver wolf the workings of the Fey Courts were largely a mystery to White Wisp, but to her shamanic sight it was plain that Miss Horera was greater than her human protector. Even the fairies had revealed that Horera was their Life Champion, the living embodiment of all that was good in Terraâ€”and yet they persisted in trailing the man Edmund like giddy pups.
â€śAre you alright, Miss Horera?â€ť White Wisp bowed to her alpha.
A little outside the fairy ring and into the deeper foliage, Miss Horera was sitting alone picking dirt out from between her toes.
â€śHorera not knowâ€¦â€ť
â€śWhat troubles you, Miss Horera?â€ť White Wisp smiled at her young alpha.
â€śIs big responsa,â€ť Horera scrunched her face up, â€śSponsibleâ€¦ Lots expectings. What if Horera do bad?â€ť
â€śYouâ€™ll be fine,â€ť White Wisp placed her head comfortingly on Horeraâ€™s. How strange to feel motherly toward her alpha, complex, yet somehow right. â€śYouâ€™re so full of kindness and goodness, thatâ€™s why you were chosen. Thatâ€™s why I trust you, and why youâ€™ll do well.â€ť
Horera hugged White Wisp tightly, â€śHorera scared.â€ť
â€śWeâ€™re all here for you if you need us,â€ť White Wisp closed her eyes.
â€śThatâ€™s right,â€ť a gruff manâ€™s voice cut into the conversation. â€śYer never alone, Horera.â€ť
Horera and White Wisp both looked to see Horeraâ€™s human father leaning against a tree for supportâ€”still resisting Altheaâ€™s insistence that he rest more to recover from his lingering injuries. White Wisp had never feared humans; her tribe was proud and mighty. But this human frightened her, there was something about him so terrible it made her tremble, and even with her shamanic training White Wisp couldnâ€™t say exactly what it was.
â€śHorera have fight Bad Man?â€ť Horera whined.
Her human father nodded, â€śIâ€™m afraid so. But from here on Iâ€™m with you all the way. You wonâ€™t fight him alone.â€ť
White Wisp nodded, â€śWe are all with you.â€ť
