lack of a certain seriousness.
Bearclaw (soul name: Grenn); Cutter's father by Joyleaf, and the son of Mantricker and Thornflower. The tenth chief of the Wolfriders, Bearclaw was known for having quite a temper, and led his tribe of forest dwelling elves in a time when indigenous humans started trusting and respecting less and less the "point-eared" demons. Bearclaw followed his ancestor Two-Spear's path to war, which eventually led to the death of many fellow wolfriders such as Shale, Eyes High and Crescent. Years later, his own lifemate Joyleaf was killed -along with four other elves- by Madcoil, a half-longtooth (sabretooth cat), half-snake monster born from a pool of bad magic. Devastated by grief, Bearclaw faced Madcoil himself, and was subsequiently killed, but not before he could pass the chieftainship over to his son, Cutter. Bearclaw had long brown hair, dark eyes and face fur in the form of a short beard and moustache. His wolf-friends included Crest and Blackfell.
