Iron Hounds Wolf Pack Information
IRON HOUNDS PACK LAW
1.) DRAMA: This is the number one rule, literally. NO DRAMA!!! You will literally be removed and blocked from all access points to the pack. It will not be tolerated whatsoever. It doesn't matter how small it is, We will not tolerate it.
2.) REPORT A PROBLEM: If there is a problem between you and another pack member, You are advised to bring it to the attention of I (Alpha Anthony) Or Amelia (Beta) so that we can try to resolve it before further issues arise.
3.) ACTIVITY: You are expected to be fairly active. We understand RL comes first, ALWAYS. However, We would like a heads up if you plan on being away for an extended period of time (Ex. A few days-weeks). We do expect you to communicate with us.
4.) COMMUNICATION: You will be expected to have Discord as that is our main line of communication.
5.) RANKS: We all have our ranks, However; If you're wanting to join the group as an Alpha, It will need to be understood that there is already a pack alpha and any standing member of the group will outrank you automatically due to their time invested in the group. We completely understand that sometimes there might be a little joking and teasing with ranks IC, but OOC, Our ranking system still stands.
6.) Please make sure you read our ABO Dynamics if you're not familiar with it. Understand that we have tweaked it to our liking. It will not follow any ABO dynamic from any particular show/Dynamic in general, We've taken bits and pieces to ensure everyone is comfortable with how it's done.
7.) Rules will be added as time passes and we begin to get a better feel of those interested in joining the pack.
8.) DISCORD: Each channel on Discord is labeled for everything needed. There will be times when we partake in a group rp, just to keep creativity flowing. We will also hold group events in a channel and there will be times where a different server will be created.
9.) DATING: While we do allow dating within the group, We urge newcomers to know that some of the members in the group are already taken. I'm mentioning this due to a previous situation where someone tried to join so they could date someone with a particular FC. The reason I'm posting this rule is to say that just because you use a specific FC, You aren't required to date the person in the group who uses said FC’s LI FC. You can date outside of the group. We don't mind. But I felt this was something that needed to be added.
9a.) SEXUAL ACTIVITY; There is be absolutely NO and I mean NO sexual activity written within the server at any time. Making joke’s and teasing one another is completely fine however if you want to write sexually please do so in private messages. We’re all consenting adults (or you wouldn't be here) and need to have respect for those who aren't necessarily comfortable with seeing or writing that type of style within the server. If I see it, you’ll get ONE warning and that’s it.
10.) If you'd like to join us, We'd love to have you. You're more than welcome to use any face claim you'd like. Please fill out an audition form located at the end of the blog and FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS.
First and Foremost, ABO Dynamics vary depending on which source you use. Different sites say different things. What I’ve done is take bits and pieces from what I’ve found and I put them together in a way that I like- a way that hopefully makes sense. So no, Its not exactly by ‘the book’ depending on which you would have gone by. It's my own variation.
What is ABO?
Alpha, Beta and Omega is mainly a sub verse in werewolf fanfics. Alpha/Beta/Omega or Alpha/Omega (occasionally Alpha/Beta) is a kink trope wherein some or all people have defined biological roles based on a hierarchical system, with the terms originating from animal behavior research. There may be werewolf, knotting, or other animalistic elements involved.
Alphas are the top of the social ladder. They are strong and territorial. Their personalities are often described as arrogant and autocratic. This is by no means to say they are not capable of compromise and understanding, every Alpha is different and unique.
Betas are the "norm." They are not overly dominant, nor overly submissive. They make up the most of society. Betas are vital to a pack as they are the 'caregivers' if you will. They provide a peaceful vibe to the pack and at times give the Alpha guidance when needed.
Omega's make up the vast majority of the pack. They are considered to be a crucial part to the pack as they offer support to other ranks in times of distress. Omega's provide an added protection to the pack as they are more territorial than betas, but not as much as the Alpha.
No lycan gets to choose what they present as, Mother nature does that. Most Lycan who were born either full blooded or half blooded, present between 14-17 years old, sometimes there's late bloomers. As for bitten lycan, we'll find out. It's unclear when or if they'll present.
Now in a pack where there's already a Main Alpha, there can be other Alphas, it means they butt heads with the Pack Alpha. At the end of the day there's only one Pack Alpha though. In this pack we've got our established Alpha so keep that in mind.
While there may be some in pack drama from time to time, keep in mind that at the end of the day they're a family. This pack is family, come whatever, through it all. It means they watch out for one another, they take care of one another. If there's a problem with one of them? You have a problem with us all. If some problems outside the pack arise and a certain lycan wants to handle business alone- they always know their pack has their back. We go to war together- there's nothing stronger than our family of misfit toys...
You don't get to join the pack simply because you have a sob story, we all do. You need to prove yourself to us. We're ride or die as they say.. We had nothing so we created something and we'll be damned if we have it shattered into pieces due to someone who seems to thrive on drama.
This wolf is the herbal wolf. They heal and take care of the ill and injured. No magic or powers, just herbs and special medicines from resources.
Sentinels are to ensure that the pack is safe by patrolling the territory and watching the movements of the surroundings. They are to make sure that no intruders enter the clearing. In doing so, it is a sentinel's responsibility to greet new visitors and learn why they are here and where they come from.
The hunters are those werewolves who are exceptionally skilled at tracking and hunting down prey. The hunters make sure that the pack has a full abundance of food. Scouts Scouts are responsible for warning the pack of dangerous territory outside the clearing, if any.
are mainly werewolves known by neighboring packs and visit around often. They stay in touch with other packs and keep friendly relations. They are to report any important changes to the alpha and beta.
Omegas and Pups
The omega of the pack is 2nd lowest ranking werewolf. The omega is usually a young werewolf that is very new to pack life and still learning.
The delta werewolf is a werewolf in training for beta position. They are third in rank to alpha and beta. Deltas do not hold the authority to call medium or large hunts. That is a privilege to only rank alphas, betas, and hunters. Deltas usually become the next Beta after training is complete but one can remain Delta without moving to Beta position. When this is the case, if ever the current beta is removed from their rank, steps down, changes rank, or leaves the pack, the delta may take the place as the new beta at the alpha's request.
An elder is a werewolf with great experience and knowledge of werewolf packs. In the past, they may have held such high ranks as alpha and/or beta. They are sometimes older members who have decided to make the pack their final resting place. An elder's opinion is greatly respected throughout the pack, being adviser to both alphas and betas. They are asked to be role models to the pack, adults and cubs included, and also to visitors, showing them the way of the pack. They express maturity in their thoughts and actions during serious discussion or conflicts and help out wherever they can, supporting the pack through and through. The elder lingers in the background when it comes to pack affairs.
A wolf that shows interest and skill in caring for weakened pack mates. They also watch over the older or ill werewolves of the pack. The caretaker of the pack ensures when any werewolf is wounded, they recover properly not putting too much stress on their wounds. They serve as a support unit, and try to keep the pack in a healthy state. If they feel a werewolf is not strong or rested enough to hunt, they are to inform the alpha, beta, or hunter. Care taking does not mean healing; it means helping to survive, to watch over and make sure one does not further hurt themselves. A caretaker has to be stern to the wounded. Many werewolves will insist they are fine. A good caretaker needs to know what injuries are serious and what injuries can heal on their own. They need to make sure a wounded werewolf does not over exert itself. They need to be firm in having the wolf rest.
