| MORTUS SERO |
Formed by Torvald Tevirye, this pack is certainly not for the faint hearted or weak bodied. All aspects of this order are strict, harsh and inflexible with punishment that is swift and final. A common saying truly comes to life in Mortus Sero for ‘only the strongest will survive’.

Every wolf who has been accepted into Mortus Sero will be branded with an asymmetrical 'X' on their right hind thigh. This branding signifies loyalty to the pack, and serves as a clear indication for all of where the individual's alliances lie.
Sero wolves will keep a notable tally of their battle abilities etched into their own flesh. For every life which has been taken by the individual a tally mark (running perpendicular to the direction of the limb) will be carved into their left forearm. Though shallow, the wounds will heal over and leave a noticeable scar; a vivid depiction of precisely how accomplished the individual is at the art of war. [Number of tallies to be reviewed and approved by Jewels]

Like Medics, Toxicologists are experts of the flora and fauna of the lands. They focus their extensive knowledge, however, to toxins and poisons rather than healing agents. In addition to plants they are often seen gathering poisonous animals such as tree frogs and snakes..
Individuals are specifically demoted to this rank for various reasons, or are prisoners taken from neighboring packs. The alternative to being demoted to a drudge is death, so those ranked as drudges are often desperately seeking forgiveness from their peers, and most importantly, the superiors of the pack.
The following ranks do not exist in the Mortus Sero pack:
Priest/Priestess: Religion is not a highly or widely held belief amongst these wolves and therefore this rank holds no worth.
Denmother: It is believed that even as pups the wolves of Mortus Sero should be strong and strive for success. Therefore, pups who are unable to fight to survive are given no assistance and allowed to die. Mothers and fathers who are unable to adequately care for their young and rear them are also considered to be weak and are often not allowed to breed again.

— The pup trade occurs between MS and SC. Xavier Tevirye is exchanged for Rotterdam Vedi.
— MS launches an unexpected attack on the already crumbling Anaranjado Tribe. In the midst and aftermath of the earthquake they seize loners and Tribe members alike, enslaving them as drudges of MS. Amongst those captured includes the former Alpha of the Tribe, Montego, as well as the soon-to-be Alpha of the Thesa pack, Sikandar.
— Mortus Sero holds their third pack meeting. Overseers haul their respective drudges alone, the pups are assigned mentors and promotions are distributed. Torvald warns of the influx of new and ambitious loners who are rumored to be looking to start packs. He advises all to sharpen their battle skills and informs them that a mass training session is to be held in the future.

— MS ventures to the Fuego region for a hunting competition. When one of the small hunting groups is attacked by a Jaguar the remainder of the pack offer retaliation. The battle is brief as flames suddenly appear in the distance.
— Another pack meeting is called, the main focus being the fire which has now spread into the Refuge Point. It is made clear that the pack will not flee from their home unless absolutely necessary and that in order to help dissuade the fire from breaching the Bosque the Serons will remove vegitation surrounding the forest.
— While the removal of burnable material from the boarder did help to simmer the fire's strengths the flames still managed to enter the Seron's homes. Valkyrie and Scott are the first to discover this development and immediately find Torvald. All Serons are alerted and gather at the Seron Lake, where they will take up temporary residence.
